erectile dysfuntion is not being able to achieve or maintain a full erection for sexual intercourse. if you have erectile dysfunction, you will either not achieve a full erection to penetrate the vagina or you will lose your full erection during sex (before you reach orgasm)

all kinds of stuff causes erectile dysfunction. you need google erectile dysfunction to get a full description (over 20 different ways to cause erectile dysfunction)

If you suspect to have it, you need to visit a doctor so they can determine if it is physical or psychological problem. It's usually psychological or it could be the combination of physical or psychological.  

Usually men over 40 that experience erectile dysfunction relates to a physical problem or some underlying medical condition, ie. diabetis, high blood pressure, etc. Men under 40 that experience erectile dysfunction usually relates to something psychological, i.e. performance anxiety.

If you do have erectile dysfunction, your doctor may prescribe viagra, cialis or levitra to help you maintain and achieve a full erection BUT those medicine only works if you're sexually excited in the brain. In other words, if you're still worrying about your sexual performance, the medicine may not work.

Another thing that is slowly on the rise informational wise and causes erectile dysfunction is over-masturbation. A lot of men claim they can achieve a full erection during masturbation but not during real sex. That is an obvious red flag that masturbation is interfering with your normal sex life and it would be wise to either minimize masturbation or quit all together.

This practically sums it up. If you feel you have erectile dysfunction, feel free to send me a private message and we'll get down to the root of the problem.
