Sometimes a bloke just can't get it up. There could be numerous reasons for this. A potassium deficiency. Too much arsenic in the drinking water. Not enough testosterone. Psychological hurdles. Aging. Diseases such as MS and diabetes. Smoking. You may not be all that physically attracted to your partner. Stress. Depression. Worries that you won't be able to perform. The list goes on and on.
There's no reason to give up on good sex just because you can't get a boner, or you do get a boner but it won't stay erect. First and foremost, see your doctor to eliminate any serious physical causes. Talk to a therapist to deal with psychological issues affecting your ability to perform. In addition to both of these suggestions, there are other methods of treatment. These methods include prescription drugs like Viagra and Cialis, herbal remedies, sensitizing creams, vascular reconstructive surgery, prostaglandin tablets in the urethra, penis injections, a penile prosthesis, cock rings, penis pumps, and penis enlargers.
One popular method of dealing with a flaccid cock that won't wake up is to use a penis pump. Penis pumps gained worldwide notoriety when a former U. S. state judge was charged with three felony counts of indecent exposure for whacking off with a penis pump while hearing cases. A court reporter heard strange whooshing noises, and noticed what the judge was up to. And I mean "up" in every sense of the word! This judge was sentenced to four years in prison in 2006.
It's easy to use a penis pump. Your penis fits into a tube attached with a hose to a vacuum pump, which sucks all the air out of that tube. As the vacuum gets stronger, your penis is pulled further into the tube, increasing blood flow. The squeeze ball is the most popular form of penis pump. Other types include hand grips, plungers, and electric penis pumps.
Most importantly, don't rush things. Use lots of water-based lube around the sealing ring at the pump's opening. Slather your staff with lube, too. Push your penis into the tube until that tube is flush up against your body. Don't overpump or you risk damaging yourself. Your penis pump isn't a blood pressure cuff. Don't strangle your poor cock. The pressure should be pleasant and arousing. Each pumping session should last about a half hour.
Cock rings help men with erectile problems because the ring holds blood in the penis, helping it to stay harder for a longer period of time. Some cock rings have perineum stimulators. The perineum (also known as the taint) is that sensitive area of skin between your scrotum and your anus. Vibrating cock rings provide even more stimulation. Some cock rings have clit bumpers to give your female partner additional pleasure. Use a cock ring in conjunction with a penis pump or penis enlarger to enhance your sexual experience.
Penis enlargers are another popular product used to deal with erectile dysfunction. These extenders fit snugly over your penis, giving you a few extra inches of length. They also remain rigid should you begin to deflate. Some penis enlargers are textured to give your partner extra stimulation and pleasure.
There are many different ways to deal with erection difficulties. A few of them are covered here. Remember, before trying any of these methods, consult a doctor.
