Let’s face it: it’s a biological truth that men have a tremendous pressure to be manly. Across all cultures, including ours, the man must be virile, strong, confident and, yes, (in the hetero-identified example) able to please a woman sexually.
So it takes a tremendous amount of courage for a man suffering from erectile dysfunction to admit that he has a problem and seek help.
The very important thing to consider though is to realize that erectile dysfunction is not a sexual problem; it’s a mental problem.
Any sexologist will tell you that the brain is the most important sex organ – more than the genitalia by far.
