Dinner was fabulous. The conversation is flowing even better than the wine. Excitement and anticipation is in the air. You are charming as ever, and her body language says she is definitely receptive. The lights are low and the temperature is rising. Everything is perfect for intimacy. You eye the bedroom. You gather your courage and slowly make your move. Your heartbeat is steadily rising but….uh, oh, something else isn’t…
How embarrassing. How humiliating. How emasculating. You apologize, but nothing you say seems adequate. And the more you say, the worse you feel. She says, “Don’t worry about it, it’s okay”, but you wonder what she really must be thinking.
Has this ever happened to you?
You’re not alone. This situation occurs far more frequently than you might imagine.
The National Institutes of Health estimates that 15 million to 30 million men in the U.S. have some form of ED.
Achieving and maintaining a healthy, firm erection throughout sexual activity is among the most wonderful experiences a man can have in his life. It reaffirms his identity, virility, ability to pleasure his partner and himself, but most importantly, his ability to naturally father a child.
Erectile dysfunction is NOT NORMAL at any age, but IS a highly treatable condition. This fact should offer hope and encouragement to those affected.
Often, erectile dysfunction is an early warning sign of other more serious conditions, further supporting the wisdom in seeking professional medical counsel. The reader is strongly encouraged to consult with their physician regarding any symptoms of ED as soon as possible.
