Some men lie on the floor on their chest and stomach and masturbate. This is called prone masturbation. During this act, they apply excessive pressure on their genitals by rubbing their penis over the floor or mattress or cup their hands to insert their penis inside it by pushing their hip downwards. This leads to loss of sensations in the penis over time. Next time when they masturbate in other positions or have sex, there might be erection and orgasm issues. Masturbating in different positions and leaving long gaps between masturbation might be of help.
