ED Issues Anyone? ED experiences
Posted Sat Nov 15, 2014 09:48 AM
I'm in my mid 40s and it just isn't working for me. With a little will-power (focusing on the sensations and not focusing on being hard) I can get it hard enough to penetrate for a few minutes, but it used to get hard enough to pound in nails.
I've tried Viagra and it works sometimes. It doesn't seem to work if I'm tired or have any alcohol.
I discussed this with my doctor. She tested my testosterone levels and found them to be a bit low, but still in the normal range and then prescribed me Viagra. At $40 a pill sex is now very expensive.
I know that half of all men my age suffer from occasional ED, but this isn't just occasional for me and half of all men don't run marathons. I've heard that cardiovascular exercise is more effective than pills at treating ED. So I should have this nailed.
This all really started about a year ago when I caught a bad cold. Oddly enough being on antibiotics for an infected throat seemed to help. Getting more than 6 hours of sleep a night should help too.
Sorry for rambling, I'm just trying to make sense of it all.
Any similar experiences?

at 40 years old, that is pretty young to be having trouble. Do you have high cholestoral? That can plug up the blood vessels in the penis and lead to being called "mr floppy".
But some ideas:
do not take it personally, instead treat it with humor. If for instance you can not get it up, just say "oh well, its not cooperating today" and dive down between her legs and give her a severe tongue-lashing!
You will need more mental help (of the kinky kind) to help get it up. So buy her some really kinky lingerie, or experiment with new augmentation methods (you can find pix on this site! lol)
If all fails, you can get a prescription for Trimix injections. They can get a dead horse erect!

If you think your healthy enough, maybe there are other issues that need checking and it seemed that your doctor just took the easy option and gave ya viagra. Not having the ability to gain an erection could be a sign of other health issues not necessarily related to sex.

Are you bored with your sexual regime!
Just some thoughts.

Instead of Viagra, try something that's been proven to actually make you "horny".. Viagra just allows more blood flow to your crotch, which helps in the erection. But it doesn't make you horny to begin with. Most people don't understand this.
Horny Goat Weed.. aka Yin Yang Huo and Epimedium Grandiflorum. It seriously does work.. personally tested. You say your test levels are low? This increases them.. body builders use this shit. From the very first use... hard as granite, and an increase in both precum and cum. In fact.. the effects level off after about 1 month, and you'll be feeling like an 18 year old again... hardons from nowhere, and you'll be cumming at least twice as much. At least. Your balls will feel bigger and a lot heavier too. Basically, all you'll want to do... is fuck.
Number of downloads: 2
Go to nationalnutrition, and search the product... they have a great list of details on the product.
2 caps a day, 2x a day. Or... 4 caps 90 minutes before "activity". .. Only takes me 45 minutes though.... an an empty stomach.
As an added bonus, it's also good for the liver and kidneys, as well as arthritis... it's been a part of TCM for hundreds of years. (Traditional Chinese Medicine). You can buy it in Chinatown in raw bulk, but it'll be full of stems, blades of grass, and even the odd cocoon. Buy in capsule form, and look for "standardized 20% Icariin" or higher. It's been concentrated. the raw form takes 30 grams per serving, while the caps only require 2x 500mg... 1 gram.
Add some macca root and panax ginseng in the mix, and your wife will think she's fucking an 18 year old again.

First one, I could get hard but not fully as hard as usual half the time or could not get an erection at all could last from anywhere from 2-45 minutes (yes, that is the correct timing) and then would go soft before cumming.
I also had it happen with another prescription where I could stay hard as usual but as one doctor put it, it felt like you were rubbing the skin on your hand between your thumb and index finger on top of your hand and no matter how much contact you had, there was not enough sensation to bring you over the edge. Wife enjoyed the up to 3 hour sessions but after that long and still not being able to cum was frustrating.

From the sounds off it there are a few medications that if used over long term can cause ED at a relatively young age. The interesting thing about being polyamorous is that you do meet all sorts of interesting people with good and bad stories to tell.
The sensate focusing technique sounds pretty good. I find I do something similar to that already by concentrating on the sensations during foreplay and not focusing on getting an erection. Taking advantage of the morning erection works pretty good too.
Currently, I have only one partner. When I was seeing someone else I typically would take a Viagra so the issues are the same for both. I can definitely see ED being psychologically driven. The first time I experienced group sex, I could not perform. I could not get erect with others in the room. Even a MFM was difficult.

Firstly, that the sensate focussing is something that you enjoy. If you have looked into this now then you will maybe realise that there is more to this than simply avoiding penetration. Take it slowly and in stages. Avoid genital contact, etc and work your way up to when you feel that you can have sex normally.
Secondly, you mention, albeit in a casual way, about how it would be good not to have to worry about having sex again. Maybe that is an important indicator here and may mean that you are putting to much pressure on yourself. At that stage, it is risky for us who are not properly qualified to offer psycho-sexual advice on the matter and may be an indication that it is time for a trip to a professional?

The weird thing now is that it is suddenly back to normal. Actually better than normal. Even when I'm nervous about it or not expecting it to work, it works. It works when I'm tired. I often wake up at night with erections and have solid morning erections.
I'm getting a bit more sleep, but not that much. My diet is the same. I've had a cough for the last year and I've noticed that is gone too. Don't get me wrong. I'm not bragging or complaining. I'm just stumped.
I have an appointment with an urologist this month so I think I'll still keep that. Hopefully he can give me some advice to keep things working good.
