Does your husband have difficulty sustaining an erection? Are his feelings of shame and frustration interfering with your relationship? If so, help is on the way.
When TLC's 'Strange Sex' found a 34-year-old man who breastfeeds from his wife to help his ED problem, the show latched on like a newborn.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED), is no laughing matter. Research shows that approximately one out of ten men experiences ED or a loss of libido at least once in their lives. ED has numerous causes, and according to the National Institutes of Health, approximately 5% of 40-year-old men and between 15% and 25% of 65-year-old men experience ED on a long-term basis ... and it is becoming increasingly more common in younger men.
In the past, erectile dysfunction — which affects 20-30 million American men — has been chalked up to factors like anxiety, stress, smoking and bad hygiene. While Viagra and other pills can offer a solution, there's something else men can do to ensure they perform better in bed: check their habits.
A recent study published in the American Journal of Sociology has found a link between erectile dysfunction in older men and friendships between their partners and male friends. Described as "partner betweenness," this phenomenon occurs when the female partner has stronger relationships with her hubby's friends than he does, effectively coming between him and his friends.
If your man has lost his mojo, replace his potato chips with carrot sticks. A new study shows that dropping a few pounds can dramatically increase his libido.
Men with erectile dysfunction like to cheat. An interesting tale of sexsomnia. Five dating truths that no one likes to talk about. Dating rules it's OK to break. On not wearing a wedding band. And, having a little faith that things will work out.
A couple of weeks ago, a fellow by the name of Davy Rothbart wrote a piece for New York Magazine that was one part confessional and one part trend piece about dudes being unable to do the deed with a real life lady because of the amount of porn they've consumed. Is porn really the villain?
A truck driver from DeKalb County, Georgia sought treatment for his erectile dysfunction from Boston Men's Health Center. They gave him a syringe of a proprietary compound and told him to inject his junk with the formula thrice a week. He did so and suffered complications from the get-go. The resulting priapism damaged the man's package and he won roughly $9 million. Elsewhere, a Swede blacked out from drinking and wound up with a phallus tattooed on his leg.
An Australian company called Acrux may be on the way to making some big dollars and some couples really happy. The company is testing a testosterone-boosting drug called Axiron that restores hormone levels to normal in 84 percent of test subjects after four months of testing. As you may know, low man-juice (testosterone, in this case) can lead to memory loss, osteoporosis and erectile malfunctions. Obviously, the major selling point for the drug, which is applied via underarm spray, is as tonic for erectile dysfunction.
You'll never see a dude turn to another dude and ask, "Do I look fat in these pants?" But that doesn't mean men are invulnerable to insecurities, no matter how much we'd like to think so. Women are upfront about their fears, doubts, and self-esteem. I used to think it was just compulsive gabbiness, a quirk of the fairer sex. But, in fact, it is an admirable coping mechanism that's even a little bit courageous. That said, I'll sack up and admit that I've spent a lot of my life feeling like a fatty, a chubasaurus, half-man and half-marshmallow.
In weird news about strange love, a prisoner named Dawud Yaduallah is suing the state of New York for failing to treat his Priapism. This brings up an interesting question, when does an erection go from being funny to being dangerous? Also, learn what the acronyms NEB and ED mean... to guys.
So, erectile dysfunction. Ever been with a guy who can't get it up? How do you feel? Embarrassed? Frustrated? Guilty? Or maybe just miffed? Today on Nerve's Date Machine Airheadgenius posts about how as she gets older she encounters more and more men whose penises aren't getting hard, and she wonders why.
You've heard the warnings on the Viagra commercials saying that if your erection lasts longer than 4 hours you should call a doctor. Well, in this piece, MSNBC explores prolonged erections, known as priapism. These ultra hard-ons don't come from being turned on and they don't go away after you orgasm. They occur when the penis fills with blood, as in a normal erection, but for some reason it's unable to get out. Apparently they're extremely painful, and really do need a professional's attention. A doctor will drain the blood, either with a needle or surgical shunt. Ouch. Thankfully they're also pretty rare, and almost never related to ED pills.
