... This...is common but also something that can be worked around. Some men find that it helps to ask their partner to put the condom on their penis so that they can continue touching and kissing and looking at their partner, which can help to maintain their arousal. Applying water-based lubricant or silicone-based lubricant to the outside of the condom (once it's on the penis) can help, too, as the slippery motion of her or your hand massaging your condom-covered penis can feel arousing and enhanced your erection.
Make sure, too, that you are using a condom that fits your penis comfortably. If you need a bigger or smaller size, ask your pharmacist for recommendations or browse options [online].
