Everyone must know that erectile dysfunction is not a disease, and sexologists, andrologists, urologists, doctors, psychologists, etc. no longer have to use the terms impotence and impotence in sex education, in articles and interviews in the media, on television. The penis is not the symbol of male potency: for a true sexual liberation of all men (and women), for the purposes of sex education one must explain that it is the ability to love (and the knowledge of making love) what really counts, not the penis and its erection.
Erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of some neurological and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, prostate surgery, as well as an effect of some antidepressant drugs, antipsychotics, etc. Continue reading
Alcohol is a double-edged sword: from a neurochemical point of view alcohol temporarily reduces the control that the frontal lobe exerts on our instinctive behaviors, including sexual ones. The problem occurs when the quantity of alcohol increases and this abuse is carried on for long periods: in this case, in fact, not only at the moment do we more easily put into action dangerous or even antisocial behaviors, but also our long-term sexual desire is slowed down and testosterone production is inhibited, reducing overall sexual function.
The command to produce testosterone is given by a gland located at the base of the brain, called the pituitary gland, which uses two “helpers” to transmit orders: the FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and the LH (luteinizing hormone). Their stimulatory message reaches the testicles, where testosterone is produced. Continue reading
Those who prefer the theoretical sex of pornography to the real one, run the risk of ending up in a complicated trap. Consuming pornography leads to difficulties in real sex: a study just presented at the annual meeting of the American Urological Association in Boston explains it.

What emerged is that 26% said they saw pornography less than once a week, 25% once or twice a week, 21% three to five times a week, 56% a week ten times, 4% over 11 times a week. Continue reading
Delayed ejaculation affects up to 4 % of all sexually active males. The disease is characterized by the inability to reach the culmination and ejaculate within half an hour after the penetration. In rare cases, males can’t reach the climax at all. An individual may be diagnosed delayed ejaculation (DE) if the problem persists for half a year or longer. DE may be situational (happening from time to time) or constant.
Difficulties with ejaculation may be either permanent or gained. If the problem is permanent, the reason may be in the inborn abnormalities of the genital system that prevent ejaculation. Continue reading
