For men experiencing erectile dysfunction, it’s common to have trepidation about the future of their sex lives. How will they perform? Will their partners be satisfied? The truth is that much of the anxiety is unwarranted. There are several answers to how to have sex with ED. And there are many things you can do to make that sex the best ever, including trying the most ideal positions and techniques.
Woman on top. A basic premise of having sex with ED is improving blood flow to the penis. Based on this, it has been believed that a position that doesn’t require blood to fuel major muscle groups can enable blood to stay targeted on the erection. Lying on your back with your partner on top can relax the rest of the body and preserve more blood supply for sex.
Oral. A good position for how to have sex with ED is also one that is conducive to switching to oral sex, for instance being on your knees. One source indicates that oral sex produces a suction similar to a vacuum pump, which can help create and maintain an erection.
Manual stimulation. Another good position is one that allows for manual stimulation. By placing fingers at the base of the penis and adding mild pressure, it’s possible to constrict the outflow veins in the penis. This allows more blood to stay in the penis.
Here is our video for five positions and techniques:
Morning sex. In addition to new positions, you can also aim to have sex first thing in the morning. Sources say blood flow and testosterone tend to be higher in the morning. Try getting up and moving right away to get your blood flowing, having a light breakfast, and then heading back to bed.
Use a device. Many men also experience positive results using a vacuum therapy device. These devices, or penis pumps, use vacuum suction to draw blood into the penis through a penile tube. Once the penis is erect, an elastic support ring is placed around the base of the penis to hold the erection in place. With practice, penis pumps can make sex not only possible, but also make it even better.
Erectile dysfunction is extremely common and 100% treatable. Getting quality information, having a healthy lifestyle, and using the right positions and techniques can make having sex with ED a no-brainer.
