Being diagnosed with erectile dysfunction doesn’t mean your sex life is over. And it doesn’t even mean your sex life is going to be nothing to write home about. Here, we look at how to make sex with erectile dysfunction not only possible, but better than ever.
The first thing to do with ED is relax. Don’t panic. Erectile dysfunction happens to millions of men – over 30 million in America alone. It gets more common the older you get.
It’s also nothing to be embarrassed about. And it’s possible that what you’re experiencing isn’t even ED. If the problem is infrequent it may just be the result of anxiety or stress and may go away on its own. For it to be considered ED, you must regularly experience trouble getting an erection or difficulty maintaining an erection long enough for sex. As you assess the best solution for you, it’s important to learn the facts about erectile dysfunction.
Get intimate other ways.
If you do have ED it can actually improve your sex life. Experiencing erectile dysfunction provides an ideal opportunity to slow down and think about other ways of connecting. It’s important to remember that sex doesn’t just mean intercourse. There is also oral sex, foreplay, adult games, or just snuggling together and seeing what happens. Experts recommend focusing on kissing, laughing, and experimenting – taking the time to touch and arouse each other. The added focus can help you both rediscover each other. Then when you are ready to have sex, it will be more intimate and exciting than ever.
You can also take steps to make satisfying erections happen. Your doctor can discuss treatment options. Medication may work. There are also natural remedies for erectile dysfunction.
One of those solutions is vacuum therapy for ED. Also known as a penis pump, this device uses vacuum suction to create a natural erection. An acrylic tube is placed around the penis, and one end is held secure to the base. The other end is attached to a manual or battery-operated pump. The pump draws air into the tube to create the vacuum suction, mimicking what your body goes through it when it is aroused. Then a penis ring is slid off the tube and placed around the base of the penis, holding the erection in place for sex, while the tube is removed.
A penis ring can even be used on its own without the pump. And because the ring constricts blood in the penis to sustain the erection, it can be an effective answer to how to have sex with ED.
Penis rings come in a variety of sizes and materials, including ones that also encompasses the testicles. Penis rings give you and your partner an opportunity to experiment and explore new sensations, which also goes far in improving sex. Learn more here about the various types.
If you’re experiencing signs of erectile dysfunction, be confident that everything will be fine. Sex with erectile dysfunction is not only possible, it can be a new lens in which you view sex. And it can be the best thing to ever happen to you – and your partner – in the bedroom.
