Erectile Dysfunction: Maintaining Intimacy

If you’re going through ED, it’s important to know that sex isn’t the only way to be intimate with your partner.

There are all kinds of ways to remain close:

Talk about your feelings: Sharing in this way can make the two of you closer. Talk about each other's needs and concerns. It’ll really help you overcome barriers.

Do things together: Hobbies, sports, volunteering, or other shared interests can bring you two closer together. Whatever it is, go out there and do it together.

Make time to be alone together: Share a bath or a candlelight dinner. Even a walk, or just holding each other in bed can go a long way.

Try something new in the bedroom: Explore new techniques that can bring pleasure without sex. Books on alternative sexual practices are available.

Talk to a counselor: Think about getting some sessions with a professional therapist. Talking with someone about what’s troubling you can have real benefits.

And finally, have fun. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Enjoy life.
