Disappointment or Impotency or erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to attain or maintain an erection adequately.
A term which directly questions one’s masculinity, erectile dysfunction are two words enough to make any person with a love stick nervous. An unpleasant situation which men find ‘hard’ to talk about (Pun obviously intended) is not an uncommon phenomenon. Affecting 2 out of every 4 adult males in their lifetime, it can be physical or mental impotency.
Six surprising reasons behind this inability of getting it up are:
1. Gum disease
How the hell in this world is your genital connected to your gums? We were shocked too. Two words – Blood flow (Blood flow affects men too? Women cheers everywhere. Equality has been served) Poor blood flow in your gums may also indicate poor blood flow in your nether regions, hence the ‘downer’. Who knew a there existed a link between your ding-a-ling and your gums?
So try visiting your dentist rather than a Urologist next time you have a problem with charging your lunch box.
2. Bicycling or horse riding
Romans discovered these connections centuries ago when they found out long time spent sitting on a saddle might result in you not leaving a progeny behind. When you sit on a bike seat, you bear weight on the nerves and pudendal arteries that carry blood to the penis. (Blood flow again)
This doesn’t mean to stop cycling cold turkey. But if you are experiencing ED, and you cycle (a lot), it might be time to paddle your way to an expert.
3. Medication for hair loss.
While some drugs may help you in getting that thick bush on your head, they might also make your sex life dead. Technically speaking they reduce the amount of Dihydrotestosterone in males, which is sex hormone that helps you to go up and up.
It’s a tough choice for men-To save hair on their head or to get their engine roaring?

4. Recreational drugs
Alcohol, Cocaine, Marijuana, Methadone, Nicotine, or any other type of substance which makes you high, force your libido to go low. These drugs don’t just affect and suppress your central nervous system but also causes serious damage to blood vessels which again leads to….. Poor blood flow. So skip some of those 420s and focus on getting high on life instead.
5. Depression and stress
To achieve an erection, a person must first go through what’s known as an excitement phase. This phase can be an emotional response. If a person has an emotional disorder, the ability to have sexual desire also goes down along with that boner. And not being able to participate in and enjoy sex can worsen depression symptoms.
Therapy sessions and talking it out might seem tough for some males. But to get back that libido, tone down on that ego.
DKODING- Shocking reasons for impotency in men
Sex can be intimidating and it’s especially a task if your partner is a little too awe-worthy. Whether in a business professional setting or when it comes to dating in the 21st century, some men still struggle with the fact that they find undeniably confident and independent women intimidating, which can affect their game in the bed. One of the main reason behind this intimidation is the problem of comparing yourself with the said partner.
“Comparing is the death of joy”- Mark Twain
7. Trying too hard
Blame the toxic male culture for this reason. Since there exists a stereotype that man’s masculinity lies in his ability to satisfy his woman or lover, most men try too hard in bed and that can put pressure on their performance further resulting in impotency.
We would suggest taking a chill pill (Not other kinds of pills) and just going with a flow.
8. Watching much adult movies
The overhyped porn culture that is easily available with the advent of technology corrupts the minds of young men. The constant use of adult movies might change the way the brain reacts to arousal, making a man less likely to feel aroused by a real-life partner.
Try visiting that incognito mode a little less and give yourself some time away from scripted fantasies.
9. Stage fright
It’s totally normal to get nervous before the real show. It happens to most of us. It usually happens to the beginners in the game and it is bound to go down with more experience.
Until then hang on and fake it (only your confidence) till you make it.
Reading articles and looking for advice on your genital related problems online may ease your mind for a little while. But we would suggest if you have any questions or concerns, please talk to a medical expert.
Sun shouldn’t be the only thing to rise in your life.
