Erectile Dysfunction Doesn’t Make You Any Less of a Man

Erectile Dysfunction Doesn’t Make You Any Less of a Man

It’s one of those things that just…… Happens. But it doesn’t really just happen, does it? Most men just try to sweep it under the rug as if it never happened at all.

I’ve recently been speaking to a lot of people both online and at talks about what makes men MEN. One of the topics that keeps coming up is erectile dysfunction and how that makes us feel afterwards. It’s easy to feel that not being able to perform in bed makes our penises redundant, like we’re a huge letdown. A loser. A waste of space. Hey, if we can’t get it up – what use are we to anyone, right?

It’s ok.

It’s normal.

It happens.

And, we need to be more open about it.

What Makes a Man Anyway?

From such a young age our coaches and parents shout “grow some balls” or “you’re playing like girls” from the sidelines. It’s already from such a young age that we start to identify that being a man is strongly linked with our genitals. This tribal, masculine sense of belonging all of a sudden starts to grow and we look to what’s between our legs to give us reassurance. But, is that what makes us who we are? I mean, is my masculinity solely based on my genitals. No! And we need to stop thinking that way.

It’s 2017

Things are constantly evolving. You wouldn’t dare catch parents screaming things about testicles or comparing your playing style to that of the opposite sex now. (Could you imagine? Jeez, it would probably go viral). But there are a number of reasons why we shouldn’t be looking between our legs as to what being a man is all about. When it comes to erect, there are a number of reasons this can happen. Sure, physical being one of them. Psychological’s another. But it happens sometimes and we can’t over think it.

Open Up

If (when) it happens, don’t be afraid to talk about it. Nothing’s going to evolve from you going into your shell saying “this never happens to me” and “I don’t want to talk about it”. Speak to your partner about it and as to what it might be. They certainly don’t think any less of you and there are so many great things that make you who you are that have nothing to do with your penis. If it does continue then see a professional about it. If you want to be more discreet you can even buy Viagra online via Lloyd’s Pharmacy.

I hope this encourages more men to open up and understand that erectile dysfunction doesn’t make you any less of a man, so don’t be afraid to share it. Jordi.
