use impotence as a means to have better sex, rather than have
it be worse. Use it as an opportunity to try new techniques,
connect emotionally with your lover, and even get in touch
with your masculinity in a new way. Remember that a man having
an erection is not what makes a man.
Of Potential Reasons
This is not
to say that you should ignore ongoing impotence, in fact we
highly recommend you do not, and will cover important suggestions
later in this article. What we are saying however, that this
is an opportunity not a disaster. Solutions depend on the situation.

The best thing to do is make a list of all medications (including

Female Ejaculation in particular is more easily achieved when full

remember that your female lover may be feeling rejected. Women often
worry that it is because of them (i.e.: that they are not attractive
enough.) That is why if both partners are willing it is an excellent
time to play with your lovely lady as it will make her feel truly
appreciated and she will thank you for the selfless attention.
GET A PHYSICAL EXAM IF
THIS PROBLEM IS ONGOING
episodes of Erectile Dysfunction in men (especially over forty)
can be one of the first signs of an impending stroke or heart attack.
The arteries in the penis start to "clog" up before the rest of
the body, so getting an exam is a good idea.
you or a man in your life has issues with a "floppy" penis
and it is an ongoing issue it is time to take that sleeping one
eyed snake into see the Doc. It is estimated that well over 50%
of all Erectile Dysfunction is due to a physical cause anything
from diabetes to god only knows. The Doctor may just do a little
test after asking some questions as to whether the "pokey pecker"
ever gets hard-ons these days. The test allows a man to see if he
is catching wood in his sleep. If he is, then most M.D.'s say the
problem is psychological. However medications can be an influence
so any medications being taken should be examined for their side
effects. In addition, there
is even evidence that depression can actually keep a guy from getting
a stiff one even in his sleep so exploring hormones and emotions
is always a good idea.
& Erectile Dysfunction:
What You Can Do To Enhance Erection
is very common in men with diabetes. The reasons are complex but
include changes in both blood vessels and nerves of the penis. The
first step in handling this problem is support from a partner or
spouse. With such support, all things are possible.
There are many treatment options for ED in men with diabetes. Viagra
is one option, although it may be less effective in men with diabetes.
This does not mean it will not work, it just means that you have
less of a chance of it working. It is still an option that may well
or Insertion Therapy
Injection therapy uses a drug that is given with a syringe and needle
directly into the erect portion of the penis. It thus places the
medication directly where it is needed and is one of the most effective
methods to treat ED. For men who do not desire injections, the same
medication is available as a pellet and is inserted into the urinary
opening at the head of the penis. You can obtain this by getting
a prescription from your physician.
Erection Device (Penis Pump)
This uncomplicated device uses a clear plastic cylinder that is
placed around the penis and uses a pump mechanism to create a vacuum
around the penis. The vacuum causes the penis to become erect, and
when it is suitably erect, a band or "cock
ring" is placed around the base of the penis. The pump
is then removed and intercourse performed. When done, the band is
removed and the penis returns to its non-erect form.
A penile implant is a device that is placed into a mans body and
is designed to help him get an erection. Following the routine outpatient
procedure, a four to eight week recovery period is necessary before
the implant is used. The hospital stay is usually overnight or for
two days. This technique has been developed extensively over the
past decades and is now very standardized. There are a number of
patient education documents available. The two largest providers
of penile prostheses are Mentor Corp and American Medical Systems.
implanted, the penile implants are not visibly noticeable. The penis
appears relaxed and normal in the flaccid state, and it is not obvious
by looking at a man that he has an implant. You should be able to
have an orgasm with a penile implant if you were able to have one
before your surgery, unless you have another medical problem that

No matter what treatment you ultimately choose, you

Dildos & Erectile Dysfunction

there are a few options that sex toys can offer before one would
consider doing something as extreme as a penile implant.
is one product that can be used as an alternative to pumps
that uses what is referred to as penis traction. Penis
traction works by steadily stretching the shaft of the
penis causing the cells to divide and multiply (cytokinesis)
which promotes new and permanent tissue growth throughout
the penis in a matter of weeks to enlarge the penis as
well as assist with erectile dysfunction as well as Peyronie's
Disease. Learn more about how
penis traction works.
Pumps & Rings
If you are
able to get a partial erection or simply cannot hold it, you
may want to first consider using a penis pump to help engorge
the penis with blood and then use a penis ring that slides down
to the base of the shaft to hold the blood in and keep the erection
firm until ejaculation occurs. There are some myths about what
a penis pump and penis rings (cockrings) can do so we have put
together articles that will help you to better understand how
to use them, what they can offer and also how to use them safely
without causing tissue damage.
Hollow Dildos & Two Hole Harnesses-
If you wish
to explore using a strap-on dildo whether or not you can get
erect and hold the erection, then there are two options. The
first is to use a hollow dildo and the second is to use a harness
that allows you to fit inside or outside of it while you penetrate
using a dildo. There are some pros and cons to using each and
it is important to review them so that you make sure that you
do not get something that will not work for you or your partner.
the large sex toy industry, there are very few companies that
make hollow dildos on the market today and even fewer that make
them so that they are nontoxic. We have all of the nontoxic
that are available at this time on our site from which you may
choose. However, there are a few things to note about hollow
dildos that are currently available-
are typically 1.75 - 2 inches in diameter on the outside.
In fact, we have not found a model at this time that is smaller
in width. The large diameter is done so that the penis will
fit inside whether you are semi erect or flaccid. The problem
that many couples find in using these larger dildos is that
the female partner often finds them to be too big and may
even find it painful.
dildos that are currently on the market are very hard on the
inside (table top firm) and do not provide stimulation to
the male user in any way.
are currently no vibrating hollow dildos on the market, however,
you can put a bullet
vibrator inside them at the end or use a vibrating
ring over them.
hollow dildos are also very hard on the outside and do not
feel natural. There is only one available at this time which
offers a softer realistic outside and it is called the Perfect
- Most couples
have found the hollow dildos on the market today to be too large,
too hard and not comfortable for the female and not stimulating
for the male. With this in mind, we have a different suggestion
for those looking to use a strap-on for Erectile Dysfunction outlined
Hole Harness Option-
the most popular suggestions that we offer to couples that
are dealing with Erectile Dysfunction is to use a harness
that has two holes in it. What this allows is for the couple
to use any dildo they like so that they can choose size, color,
texture and material while allowing for skin to skin contact
(which hollow dildos are not designed to do).
that this works is that the male puts his penis in the bottom
hole and then puts the dildo in the top. This allows him to
penetrate his lover while still rubbing up against his lover
providing him with skin to skin contact and stimulation. In
addition, if he is erect, he can penetrate his lover without
having to take off the harness.
Best Realistic Strap-On Dildos
asked by our customers for the best strap-on dildo to
use with a harness, we often refer them to the Tantus
O2 line. There are a few reasons that we recommend
dildos such as these-
of the most durable dildos are silicone, metal and glass.
Most customers when looking for a strap-on indicate that
they want something that is realistic feeling. That pretty
much rules out metal and glass because while they are
great dildos and feel really good, they do not feel like
a real penis and are not for someone who wants something
silicone dildos do not feel realistic so that is why many
consumers buy dildos made from skin like materials such
as Cyberskin. The problem with these skin types of materials
is that they are very porous and they tear easily.
When a sex
toy is porous it can hold onto bacteria easily and it is much
more difficult to keep clean. To clean them you must use a spray
on toy cleaner, let the cleaner
get down into the pores and then rinse it off. You cannot use
soap as the soap will stay in the pores and many create a soapy
lather the next time you use it. It is important to keep the
bacteria off a sex toy as it can cause a urinary
tract infection (UTI) or even contribute to a yeast
why we are often asked by our customers if we have silicone
sex toys that feel like skin and are realistic to the touch.
Currently, there is only one line of medical grade silicone
dildos that meets this description and that is the Tantus
O2 line. What we also like about them is that they have
a firm inner core but a softer outer layer that is velvety smooth
and slightly squishy like a real penis. They are rigid like
an erect penis and will not flop around like Cyberskin style
dildos. Finally, because they are made with medical grade silicone,
they are nonporous and will not harbor bacteria, they are also
very easy to clean.
medical grade, silicone dildos tend to be more expensive than
other dildos because the silicone material is more expensive
for manufacturers to use, however, it is well worth it because
they are also extremely durable and will literally last a lifetime
unlike other dildos that may have to be replaced after a couple
years if not sooner.
