Many factors contribute to erectile dysfunction a very common cause is having a medical condition that makes it very difficult to have an erection.
Many men try to overcome their erectile dysfunction using sexual aids such as a strap-on dildo.
There are several common and very effective treatments for erectile dysfunction.
All men can be treated.
If you haven't already, we would recommend talking to your doctor about your erection difficulty. There are several medications that are commonly prescribed for erectile dysfunction, such as Viagra, and another medication that is injected directly into the penis. There are other medications currently in clinical trials which seem promising and may be available soon.
Many doctors also recommend trying Yohimbine, which is available over the counter.
There are also a few devices that are commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction, including the internal penile pump.
Assuming you have already spoken with your doctor about your erectile difficulties, there are several devices you can use to achieve and/or improve an erection.
They may seem a bit awkward and intrusive, but penis pumps can be an affective tool in helping to achieve an erection.
They work by creating a vacuum around the penis, which draws blood into the corpora cavernosa, creating an erection.
Penis pumps usually consist of a long plastic cylinder with a "gasket" at one end and a hand pump at the other.
The penis is inserted into the cylinder through the gasket - usually a piece of latex or neoprene rubber - and pushed all the way down to the base. The gasket, with the help of some type of personal lubrication, will create an airtight seal. When the penis is in place, the user creates a vacuum in the chamber by squeezing the pump. Air is removed from the cylinder and blood is drawn into the penis, creating an erection. The penis can then be withdrawn from the cylinder and sexual activity either started or resumed.
Depending on the type of erectile dysfunction you're experiencing you may lose your erection faster than you would prefer. At that point you can either reinsert your penis into the pump, repeating the process above to achieve another erection, or you can try using a cock ring.
The use of cock rings may take a little practice to perfect, but they can be effective tools in helping someone with erectile dysfunction maintain an erection.
They don't necessarily help achieve an erection, but when cock rings are properly used they can help restrict the blood flow from the penis, resulting in a longer lasting and harder erection. Together with a penis pump, cock rings can help a person who suffers from sexual dysfunction maintain a satisfactory erection.
Strap on Dildos and PPA's
Strap-on dildos can be used if these other methods don't appeal to you.
A good Prosthetic Penis Attachment (PPA) might be a good alternative while you explore your other options.
Assuming that you would like to get your johnson working again, some of the options outlined above might be worth looking into.
In the meantime, a PPA can be used for intercourse with your partner. PPA's, which are designed specifically for your type of situation, are basically a strap-on dildo with a hollow center.
The user simply attaches the PPA to their pelvis with the straps or a harness - which is almost always included - and inserts their penis into the hollow dildo. You won't be able to feel your partner through the PPA, but it wasn't designed for that anyway.
You will be able to have intercourse with your partner via the PPA.
