What Causes Sexual Anxiety?

Sexual Anxiety – Introduction

Many men have suffered from one form of sexual anxiety or another. Basically, sexual anxiety, also known as performance anxiety, refers to anxiety related to erectile dysfunction. It is a condition that primarily results from personal worries or other emotional and psychological expectations that prevent you from rising to the occasion. And it can be very embarrassing, to say the least.  

There is always the immediate feeling of being less of a man. But then if there is no urgent intervention, you could be looking at situations of relationship infidelity. You do not want matters to come to this, which is why sexual anxiety should be treated with the urgency it deserves. In this post, we shall present one of the most potent remedies for performance anxiety, but first things first.

What Causes Sexual Anxiety?

It is important to remember that sexual anxiety is more of an emotional and psychological problem than it is a physical or medical one. However, if not treated, it has a way of slipping into full-blown erectile dysfunction.

Sexual anxiety is usually caused by the fear or stress associated with your sexual performance. It can gravely affect your sex life to the extent that you may be utterly unable to perform sexually. Common causes of sexual anxiety include feelings of low self-esteem, inadequacy and not being in the mood. These feelings are often the result of negative thoughts about your sexual abilities. Negative thoughts often emanate from poor perception about your manliness.

Symptoms of Sexual Anxiety

Like ED, performance anxiety is associated with symptoms such as premature ejaculation and the inability to maintain a long-lasting erection. In a worst-case scenario, the man may be unable to achieve orgasm or could permanently lose interest in sex.

Is There A Cure for Sexual Anxiety?

As sexual anxiety is caused largely by psychological factors, it can mostly be corrected by adjusting one’s thinking. It is imperative to focus on your senses and relish every moment during sexual activity.

Instead of stressing out about something you can’t control at the workplace (for instance), you can focus on the hand that’s amorously sliding on your abdomen, or the luscious lips that are gracefully kissing you.

There are other possible treatments of sexual anxiety such as:

  • Sex education
  • Sex therapy
  • Couples counseling
  • Medications
  • Aphrodisiacs

Introducing the Greatest Aphrodisiac of All Time –Spanish Fly

Spanish Fly is a natural aphrodisiac [a libido-enhancing substance] that has been touted for its effectiveness in dealing with performance anxiety, low libido and erectile dysfunction. The earliest forms of this substance were made from powdered beetle. In ancient times, proponents of aphrodisiac foods would dry the emerald green beetle and then eat it. This form of Spanish Fly was believed to cure genital inflammations as well as raise libido, especially among women. The substance was commonly used by sailors to enhance their sexual performance.

In time, it was discovered that this form of Spanish Fly had potentially harmful effects, so it was abandoned in favor of a new Spanish Fly. The modern versions of Spanish Fly are made of 100 percent all- natural ingredients, which means they present very few [if any] side effects. Also, they have undergone scientific tests and have been approved by reputable regulators like the FDA. This means that they could be even more potent than the original substance that was directly extracted from the green beetle.

How Does Spanish Fly Help With Sexual Anxiety

As we have already seen, the most common symptoms of sexual anxiety include the inability to achieve and sustain an erection as well as premature ejaculation.

In order to understand how Spanish Fly (and it’s current version called Spanish Fly Pro) can help, we will investigate the main ingredients in this aphrodisiac. In so doing, we can uncover how each one helps with performance anxiety and ED.


This ingredient enhances sexual performance. L-arginine is an amino acid that, if taken, converts into nitric acid. As a neurotransmitter, the Nitric acid will relax your blood vessels, thereby improving the flow of blood to your genital area.


This is yet another potent aphrodisiac ingredient that comprises Spanish Fly. A study wascarried out on rats demonstrating the aphrodisiac potency of Maca. In this study, the substance was orally administered to the rats.

According to the study, various sexual parameters improved. The rats were effectively able to mount their mates and ejaculation took much longer. Also, it was observed that the rats were more active, something that could point to an increase in high energy levels.


Coffee has stimulating effects. When ingested, the caffeine present in coffee immediately kicks into action. It stimulates your brain as well as your central nervous system, thereby making your body ”ready” for sexual activity.

Though its relief from drowsiness and fatigue are only short-term, it is all that’s required to put up an impressive sexual performance. By the time the effects of caffeine subside, you should have already had a sexual experience to relish. Opponents of caffeine might raise an issue with its dehydrating effects. Therefore, in order to make it work, ensure you drink plenty of water just before, during and after intercourse. This will keep you hydrated and more energized.


Guarana is associated with high energy levels and efficient sexual stimulation, a combination that might banish sexual anxieties for good. As a matter of fact, it is believed that the seeds of guarana have up to four times the level of the caffeine in coffee beans. This makes it a highly-stimulating ingredient. In Spanish Fly, this ingredient, along with caffeine, is what gets you in the mood for sex.[1]

Panax ginseng

Just like Spanish Fly, Panax ginseng has been used as an aphrodisiac from time immemorial. It was initially prescribed for women, though men can now enjoy its amazing benefits.[2]

This Spanish Fly ingredient is lauded for its healing and revitalizing properties. It is what keeps your body fresh and invigorated throughout and even after sexual activity.


Also known as Turnera diffusa, Damiana has been lauded for its ability to enhance male erections. According to FDA research, 80mg/kg of Damiana has been shown to assist and sustain ejaculatory series.

Even better, the ingredient has been proven to reduce post-ejaculatory recovery time by up to 35 percent. This means that after every ejaculation, it takes much shorter to marshal the energy to proceed to the next round. These are truly amazing stimulating effects.

Tribulus Terrestris

Last, but not least, here is an ingredient of Spanish Fly that not only relieves sexual anxiety but also improves spermatogenesis. This means it also helps cure fertility issues.[3] This ingredient is especially known to increase the secretion and stimulation of luteinizing hormone, testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate. The aphrodisiac abilities of TT are so evident that the Chinese and Indians have been using it from time immemorial. That explains why it forms a main component of Spanish Fly.[4]

How to Make the Most of Spanish Fly

Spanish Fly is available in many forms, from creams to liquids to pills. There are also no standard guidelines on how to take the aphrodisiac for performance anxiety.

You can add it to your food, put it at the back of your tongue and allow it to melt or simply ingest it whole. Even better, there are no dosages. Being an all natural and FDA approved aphrodisiac, you don’t need to worry about taking too much.

But, as a general rule, it is important to consult a physician before using it, especially if you are also taking other prescription medication.
