    I have been suffering with Erectile Dysfunction for years. And as I got older I found it more difficult to stay hard and last more than 2 minutes with my wife. I came across of a review about how Dr Austin helped someone to regain his confidence in bed which I also contacted. I have to say that Dr Austin herbal mixture has definitely solved my Erectile Dysfunction problem. It s lidocaine based with an absorption molecule so it should be able to decrease the sensitivity you are experiencing. I heard about them from an article on enbc check it out.
