We’ve all seen the endless advertisements of erectile dysfunction drugs, that seem to work like a charm. But they are false in a sense, they undermine the most important organ during sex, our mind. Which means they do not consider the psychological aspect of sex.
Hence, asexually satisfied mind involves more than body parts at their peak, pardon the pun. Erectile dysfunction can involve and set a fuse on a lot of emotional and relationship problems.
Popping a pill and trying to fix the sexual dysfunction to achieve an erection may reveal other sources of sexual dysfunction, such as low libido, difficulties getting aroused, or sexual compatibility issues with a partner.
In all of these scenarios, like in any disease your sex life may need a life coach of its own i.e., expert medical advice, which a sex therapist will be happy to provide. The sexologist can assist you in these ways:
⦁ They can help you and your partner determine whether you both are at ease with using erectile dysfunction drugs.
⦁ Help you and your partner adjust your sex sessions to match with when the drug takes effect, to make it more effective.
⦁ Help both you and your partner become comfortable with each other. And the best way to do that is to openly discuss what excites you in the bed, who would have known talking would be the key to defeat your erectile dysfunction. For example, some people need more foreplay including verbal communication, affection, and sensual touching before proceeding to sexual activity.
Help partners calculate expectations about their sexual relationship.
The sexologist can help individuals accept the fact that sex doesn’t always have to be mind-blowingly fantastic,that arousal problems may still occur despite erectile dysfunction medication, and that these medications are useless unless desire and physical sensations are properly stimulated beforehand.
⦁ Discuss emotional and relationship issues that are causing intimacy issues.
⦁ Help develop proper strategies to deal with scenarios of unsuccessful intercourse.
Not only that but there is another unique way to help men with their erectile dysfunction.a recent study says that flavonoid rich foods may lower the risk of ED.

Flavonoids are plant based chemicals, and out of all flavonoids, three had the greatest benefit: anthocyanins, flavanones and flavones.
