Maybe go to couples therapy and see a sex therapist or something? If he has been abused, he needs therapy to work through those issues himself.

You could always ask him about it and see how he responds. He may not realize that it is an issue if it has not been brought up to him. You might also find out any reasons if any from his perspective.

i have brought it up to him, but most the time it stresses him out just to talk about sex

he may have severe performance anxiety due to repeated episodes of hydraulic failure at critical times. that can wreck a man's mojo.

Might be low testosterone. Without a diagnosis, you may never know.
