As a man gets older the ability to get and to maintain an erection can be harder. (ha ha i said harder) Some men find it just takes a bit more foreplay. They may also find they can’t get a 2nd erection soon after like they once could. Now, most couples find it to be an issue they can easily deal with. And they are still able to have a very satisfying sex life. Now, some males can end up with erectile dysfunction (ED). This can become a serious issue that affects the individual both mentally and physically. At first they may only have the problem once in a while. It can be embarrassing but couples can deal with it.
For other men though erectile dysfunction can end up being a very serious problem. It can result in anger or depression. You see, many men do associate their manhood with their ability to have sexual intercourse. There are many reasons why a man may suffer from erectile dysfunction.
First, medical concerns are the number one factor. Heart disease, high blood pressure, and even diabetes can all cause erectile dysfunction. Seeing a professional about what is going on is very important. They can help prescribe medications that can help with the issue. Sometimes it turns out to be the medications that you are on that make it hard to get an erection. Blood pressure meds are a known culprit. Your doctor can help to determine the cause and get you back on track.
Second, mentally a man can prevent himself from being able to get an erection. Performance issues from the past can sometime creep back up. Not feeling attractive can also be a problem. See, it’s not always women looking in the mirror. Talking to your partner about your fears can help to alleviate them.
Third, changing lifestyle habits can really make a difference too. Some men over aren’t able to get an erection due to heavily smoking, drinking, or weight issues. Working to get rid of these problems under control can help w/the issue of erectile dysfunction.
One of the most frustrating things for men with erectile dysfunction is that it can take time to discover what is going to make a difference. You have to be willing to follow the doctor’s orders. Also THINK. Think about what you are doing, eating, meds you are taking, and be open to trying a new course of action.
Sex for adult men is important and it can be very fulfilling. Don’t be afraid to look at your lifestyle to see where you can make changes. This way you can discover what your options are for effectively dealing with erectile dysfunction. Using sex toys, adult movies, and sensual massage can aid in discovering an entire new approach to sex. Give it a try.
