Much has been researched and written about the science behind men’s sexual dysfunction, but right now, we’d like to take a few moments to discuss the psychological effects that sexual dysfunction can have on couples, for instance, how it can make them feel stressed, frustrated, and inadequate. Then we’ll recommend how you can reclaim sexual health for you and your partner.
We’ll focus on erectile dysfunction (ED) for our purposes, since it is so common. That statement alone might surprise you, but about 50 million men in the United States will experience ED, and so if you are dealing with it: you are not alone in this problem.
So, how does ED affect men and women? Men might become embarrassed around their partner and be afraid to try having sex due to the anxiety it now causes. A man with ED may feel guilty for being unable to satisfy his partner sexually. This can erode his self-confidence.
Women, conversely, may respond to their partner’s ED by blaming themselves, thinking they are not attractive enough. Both partners may also become bitter and accuse the other of being responsible for the problem. If the man’s ED persists, the woman might eventually leave the relationship to find sexual satisfaction elsewhere.
