Erectile dysfunction is a very sensitive topic. You probably tensed up a bit just reading the words there. For men, having erectile dysfunction is a worse-case-scenario thing that nightmares are made of. It’s a very tricky thing. ED can have psychological or physical causes. If the cause is psychological, then one type of stress may cause erectile dysfunction in the first place, and then the stress of having ED can make matters worse. Chanting, “Please don’t fail me please don’t fail me” to his member only puts more pressure on the situation, and makes the chances of ED higher. But how can a man who has had that embarrassing moment not think those exact thoughts right before intercourse? His friends may tell him, “Just don’t think about it” but have you ever noticed that, when you’re not supposed to think about something that’s all you can think about? If your man has ED, he’s going through a lot. Here’s what you should and shouldn’t say to him.


Don’t say: You’re not the first guy this happened with

The last thing your partner needs right now is to visualize all of the other men with whom you’ve been sexually active. Even if you have been with other men who suffered from ED, don’t mention them to your partner. He won’t take comfort in thinking about your past sexual partners.
