You've tried the ED pills (Viagra, etc) without any success, or they did initially work and now don't ?  Boston Medical I assume did tests to determine if you have any underlying problems (diabetes, high blood pressure, low testosterone) ?  You're in good shape, exercise (cardio) daily or several times a week ?  What did Boston Medical conclude?  I think an important test is to see if you can get aroused by watching your *ideal* XXX fantasy - finding that on YouPorn or a number of other free sites is pretty easy.   Whatever you like can be found - if that does the trick (even if it takes some Viagra), then you at least know things still work.  Wait till you know your wife will be gone for several hours, and don't have any hang-ups that it's 'cheating' on her - it's an experiment to see if there's a physical problem or not.

Hi there. Thank you for your question. There has to be and answer to this even if it means using intracavernous injections for a while. I would not accept no answer at all. Get checked for diabetes and see an expert. Do you get morning erections?

It sounds like you checked out Ok, so I'll offer another possibility. Have you been using porn consistently for masturbation? If so that is the main cause of ED in men under 40. The inability to get excited by a real-life sexual partner, or losing and erection is very common - it is called copulatory impotence. On our recovery forums, we have men in their teens with porn-induced ED.

Over the last 5 years we have seen hundreds of men on our porn recovery forums with ED. Many in their teens and twenties. They stop porn - and limit masturbation - and they slowly recover their libido and erectile health. Most health professionals are unaware of this rapidly developing problem. They don't understand the neurobiology of erections in relation to overstimulation by porn.

Check out this thread. Read the posts. "Control find" palpateit and read my first few posts and follow the links to the video presentations on ED and porn.

Science is starting catch up - here's research from a month ago -

It may not make you go blind, but Italian scientists have identified a worrying side-effect of watching too much pornography.

Researchers said Thursday that young men who indulge in "excessive consumption" of Internet porn gradually become immune to explicit images, the ANSA news agency reported.
Over time, this can lead to a loss of libido, impotence and a notion of sex that is totally divorced from real-life relations.

"It starts with lower reactions to porn sites, then there is a general drop in libido and in the end it becomes impossible to get an erection," said Carlo Foresta, head of the Italian Society of Andrology and Sexual Medicine (SIAM).

His team drew their conclusions from a survey of 28,000 Italian men which revealed that many became hooked on porn as early as 14, exhibiting symptoms of so-called "sexual anorexia" by the time they reached their mid-twenties.

There was some good news, however, as the condition was not necessarily permanent. "With proper assistance recovery is possible within a few months," Foresta said.

Other data presented at the SIAM'S annual conference in Rome suggested that Germans are the biggest consumers of online porn in Europe, with 34.5 percent of internet users logging on to watch smut.

France ranked second (33.6 percent), ahead of Spain (32.4 percent) and Italy (28.9 percent)

There are several variations of ED medications that work differently, and some work better for different people than others. My doctor gave me a prescription for Viagra AND Cialis as soon as I mentioned problems maintaining erections for many years. I started by taking half-doses of each and got to my perfect mix. Viagra is for when I need pretty immediate results, or want to be absolutely steady erect for a few hours. I take Cialis when a little background help is required, and I'm not in a rush - because it is kind of self activated and takes longer to kick in. All ED drugs are really expensive, and neither are covered on my insurance. I've ordered from this site a few times http://goo.gl/OYVYC0. I actually called the number on the website and spoke to a live human, they even sent me some samples first. Their "generic" versions are much cheaper also. Has anyone else tried generic versions, or ordered ED drugs online?
