Impotence is a health condition that makes life hell not just for those who have it, but for their partners or spouses as well. Sexual dysfunction or impotence in men is perhaps the #1 reason for the breakup of relationships or marriages. It is a very sensitive condition, and something most men don’t talk about, even with their doctors.
Most men find erectile dysfunction to be a deeply embarrassing condition and have a morbid fear of failing to perform in bed. They would rather have the problem stay secret than discuss it with a sexual health expert and find a proper solution to it.
Not seeking medical help for a sexual dysfunction can wreck your relationship or marriage. Your partner wouldn’t understand why you wouldn’t want to do something about the situation and after a point of time will have enough of your excuses and your assurances that things will get better the next time.
Impotence creates a barrier in a relationship. Men with this condition withdraw into a shell and refuse to talk or even to look at their partners. This is a deeply humiliating condition for both partners.
But here’s a fact – impotence is very common and affects over 140 million people worldwide. Impotence is also a condition that can be treated medically. Here, we discuss 5 ways to prevent impotence from wrecking your relationship.
- Talk to Your Partner
Is your relationship floundering because of your failure to perform in bed? The worst thing you can do is to stop talking to your partner, withdraw into a shell or breakup with her. Instead, talk to her about how you feel about it. Make her understand how you regret not being able to give her the sexual satisfaction that she deserves. Reassure her that things will get alright soon and that you are taking the right medical treatment for your condition.
- Nurture Your Relationship
Your relationship does not simply have to be sexual. Nurture your relationship and create intimacy in a non-sexual environment. There was something in you that drew her to you. Perhaps it is your confidence, sense of humour or kindness and generosity to the less fortunate. Don’t let your sexual dysfunction take away those wonderful qualities that you possess. Remember – there’s much more to a relationship than just sex. Make eye contact with your partner regularly, and kiss her as often as you can. You can be intimate with her in so many ways without having sexual intercourse.
- Use Oral Sex to Satisfy Her
There are so many ways to please a woman other than just penetrative sex. Oral sex is one of those methods. Women love being pleased orally. In fact, oral stimulation of the clitoris helps a woman reach an orgasm faster. Master the different techniques of oral sex. Use new ways of pleasing her and satisfying her. There are a number of sex toys you can use as well, which will help you take her to a new level of ecstasy.
- Participate in a Couple’s Therapy
Couple’s therapies are one of the best ways to keep a relationship together despite problems such as impotence or lack of sex drive. Couple’s therapies are organized by a trained therapist who provides both partners in the relationship a safe and convivial environment to talk and iron out their differences. The therapist helps resolve any niggling problems that are hurting the relationship. The partners are encouraged to express their views freely and work through their problems through dialogue.
- Take Pharmaceutical Drugs to Cure Impotence
There are several prescription drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, Kamagra and Levitra that treat erectile dysfunction. These drugs are highly recommended by doctors and are the most popular treatments for male impotence. Viagra was introduced in 1998 and since then has saved tens of millions of marriages and relationships across the world. Viagra is called by many names – the Magic Pill, the Little Blue Pill, the Wonder Drug, etc.
The only issue with Viagra is the cost – it costs £17-30 for four tablets. Today there are cheaper alternatives to Viagra such as Kamagra that are based on the same formula and the same active ingredient – sildenafil citrate. These wonder drugs give you a rock hard erection within 15 to 20 minutes of taking them, which lasts long enough to allow you to sexually satisfy your partner and make her orgasm multiple times.
