Honesty about erectile dysfunction is the best policy

One of the most common problems found in men of all ages is erectile dysfunction.

There is no point in beating around the bush when it comes to sex – while we may feel shy and awkward discussing matters of a sexual nature, it is important to remember that sex is a basic human need. The desire to be intimate with another person, as well as the pleasure that it brings, is intrinsically implanted in the DNA of every human being. Aside from recreational reasons, sex is important to us; it is how we reproduce, after all.

However, every now and then, we all encounter the odd problem in our quest to achieve the state of euphoria we expect from sex. One of the most common problems found in men of all ages is erectile dysfunction. An inability to ‘rise to the occasion’ and display the passion and love that you feel for your partner can often leave both of you feeling quite useless and despondent. The frustration that results from such an occurrence could build up and ultimately cause some troubles in your relationship. It is for this reason that being honest and open about issues in the bedroom is of utmost importance.

Speak to your partner

Speaking to your partner about the issue could, ultimately, improve your sex life rather than hinder it, as is commonly thought. In any relationship, communication is the most important aspect of keeping both parties happy. Telling your partner about why you think you are having a problem with erectile dysfunction could help you get to the bottom of the issue much faster; meaning that everything will be restored to the way it once was much sooner.

Causes of erectile dysfunction

  • Bad habits. Smoking, lack of vitamins, omegas and not drinking enough water all have a direct impact on your sex drive.
  • Medication. Certain ingredients in tablets could lead to erectile dysfunction. This is particularly true of anti-depressant and anti-anxiety treatments.
  • Low blood pressure. Naturally, a lack of blood flow will lead to an inability to get aroused.
  • Surgery or any kind of bodily trauma. The body is designed to protect and nurture you. Therefore, after any kind of trauma, it tends to shut down so that it may fully recover before exerting itself any further.

The important thing to remember is that there is no shame in erectile dysfunction. At some or other point in every man’s life, his equipment will fail when he least wants it to. It happens; it’s all part of the great sexual journey of life. This is why it is important to be open and honest with your partner – it’s only natural, after all.
