Male sexual problems fall under the banner of impotence, which itself has two categories: emotional impotence and physical impotence. Impotence also goes by the technical term of erectile dysfunction, but both generally mean the same thing: that you cannot perform in the bedroom. Before learning more about physical impotence, you must learn how the penis works. The penis features a core of tissues and blood vessels. As blood flows through the body, some of that blood reaches the penis. When exposed to someone or something you find sexually attractive, more blood reaches the penis. With physical impotence, the body stops sending enough blood to the penis.
Emotional impotence has its roots in emotional problems, including depression, stress, and anxiety. Many men suffer from physical impotence because of an underlying medical condition. Emotional impotence relates more to your thoughts and feelings. For example, you feel stressed and anxious about engaging in intercourse with a new partner, which prohibits an erection. When you suffer from physical impotence, your body restricts blood flow. Conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol lead to impotence problems. You might suffer from physical impotence even if you do not have a medical condition.
The main manifestation of physical impotence is problems getting an erection or keeping an erection. You might find yourself lacking an erection when staring at sexual stimuli, such as your naked partner or pornography when masturbating. The problem is that many men suffer problems during masturbation and sexual activity. If you cannot hold an erection after achieving one, you might suffer from physical impotence. When you have an impotence problem, you cannot have an orgasm. Having an orgasm fast is more indicative of premature ejaculation and not physical impotence.
Treating physical impotence yourself involves the use of natural and herbal remedies. Herbal remedies use all natural ingredients in a cream or supplement form. The cream contains natural ingredients that increase blood flow and circulation, which results in an erection. You typically apply the cream to your penis a few hours or 60 minutes before sex, to achieve an erection for intercourse. The creams are especially helpful to men suffering from physical impotence. Other men find the supplements a better choice. The supplements contain herbs and plant extracts that help men lead improved sex lives. No matter what option you pick, you can still change the way your penis reacts to sexual activities and reduce your overall symptoms of physical impotence.
