First, it could simply be a matter of stage fright related to timing issues. It's certainly possible. But does he have a history of ED outside of the confines of timed intercourse? Viagra might be helpful, but I would have him ask about cialis, which, in my opinion, is a far more flexible drug (last for a couple of days) and just as effective. Both are expensive because they are rarely covered by insurance, but he should be able to get some free samples. Have him ask about the 5 mg Cialis for every day use. It is a low dose version of the drug. He doesn't actually have to take it every day, but it is far less expensive than the larger doses. Many men often find they don't need it anymore once they get over the psychological hangups holding them back.
