Dec 15, 2019

Erectile dysfunction is a pretty common thing that affects men as they get older. Erectile dysfunction affects more than just a man’s sexual performance, it impacts his confidence, relationship, and other aspects of his health. Orest Komarnyckyj from Old Guy Talks is here to talk about what we can do to help our partners with erectile dysfunction.

The most important thing to understand about erectile dysfunction is that it’s more common than you think. There are so many different treatment options out there, both medical and natural, but it really does come down to trial and error until you find one that works for your partner. I also share some supplements he can take to support his sexual health.

Talking about problems in the bedroom are never easy, but once you approach the subject calmly and openly, it will be easier to talk about. Your partner is very likely embarrassed that they’re experiencing erectile dysfunction, so reassure him that he’s not alone. Encourage him to seek out qualified medical practitioners, more than someone who’s just going to give him a little blue pill and move on to the next patient, to try to find the root cause of his erectile dysfunction.

Because even though erectile dysfunction medicine might work at first, a lot of it won’t be effective long-term. Orest explains what else happens to a man’s body when he takes ED medication for a prolonged period of time. Did you know that erectile dysfunction medication is actually rising in popularity among young men because of the unrealistic expectations set by pornography?

Orest talks about the alternative options, some natural and some medical, that are available instead of erectile dysfunction medication. He also shares the first steps you and your partner can take in order to regain your sex life. Sex into older age is possible and we all deserve a healthy sex life with our partners.

Does your partner have erectile dysfunction? What medication is your partner taking? How are you going to approach having a conversation about sexual health with your partner?

“We’re all really different on this stuff. Some things are going to work well for some people. For others, everything’s going to work. And for some people, it’s a journey of discovery for what’s going to work and a lot of times, it’s not going to be just one treatment.” (8:46)

“Being able to be sexually functional is very important to your reality, your essence, as a man.” (29:19)
