Boyfriend has trouble staying hard during intercourse

My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over 7 months. We are in a very loving relationship and get along very well. Sexually we are very compatible, but recently we have had this problem where he loses his erection during intercourse. Sometimes it takes a long time, but this has been going on for about a month and a half. We do not have problems with other forms of intimacy such as oral sex (which is still very good; I have always been able to work his erection right back up after it's gone), but I am concerned we might be too focused on getting the job done to where it impacts his ability to stay hard. I'm looking for honest advice on how to help up both relax and figure out what's going on.

I want to add that I think this is completely stress-related. He and I have talked about not having intercourse for awhile and just "fooling around" to see if it helps lighten things up a bit.
