Content: John is a single man 29 years old from India, living in London. He has a good job but no relationship now; he flirts through apps. He complains about erectile dysfunction. The sexual history shows that he never achieved sexual intercourse because he has problems attaining an erection, while everything is fine with masturbation. The first attempt to have intercourse failed in a casual relationship with Marianne one year ago and the same went for a few other tries with her. From that point on, he avoided meeting Marianne and any other woman. The urologist he consulted confirms a good health status with no medical issue. The problem is psychogenic. Despite his cultural background, he thinks that sex before marriage is fine, but he feels embarrassed and afraid to get humiliated if he fails again. Evie Kirana discusses the case presented by Francesca Tripodi, where these key points are emphasized:
    1. Where do we start from? What would be Step 1 in clinical management?
    2. How could we explain performance anxiety to our patients? How much does the patient’s education count in such a case?
    3. What can the patient learn about himself? How can he deal with his embarrassment?
