erectile dysfunction

The new development could help improve treatment.
Size isn't everything.
An erection is a complex coordination of the brain, nerves, hormones, muscles, and circulatory system collaborating to fill the penile tissue with blood. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to attain and maintain an erection adequate for penetrative sex.
It affected activity, desire and mood.
And the best part is, they're all tasty.
There are plenty of articles about sex and aging. For women, the advice seems to boil down to "use lube"; and for men, "consider Viagra." But erectile dysfunction is not inevitable; neither are dryness and vaginal atrophy. Lest one might think distress is lower in this age category because we have given up on sex, some of us who are 65 and older are having regular and satisfying sexual activity with no need for aids of any kind.
The pressure of getting a long-lasting erection or having a big enough penis can become such a focus to a man (and his partner) that it dominates his experience, not allowing him (or his lover) to be present, connected, and all of the other things necessary for an amazing sexual experience.
