For an erection to come up, it involves the brain, nerves, hormones, muscles, and circulatory system. They all come together to fill the erectile tissue in the penis with blood. However, a man with erectile dysfunction means he has trouble getting or maintaining an erection for sexual intercourse. Some men are even completely unable to get an erection, while others have trouble maintaining an erection for more than a short time...just like my dear Ubong!
Days went by and I knew I might be sex-starved for the rest of my life. At a point, I thought God was trying to punish me for having too much sex before settling down. Ubong was out-rightly lazy in bed, would not initiate sex (maybe because of the fear of failing again) and he has a small penis!
There are many possible causes for erectile dysfunction, and many of them are treatable. Erectile dysfunction is more prevalent among older men but it does not elude younger men in their large numbers.
