    Sensual Exercises for Erection Problems - Topic Overview

    Sensual exercises may help with erection problems (erectile dysfunction). Doing these with your partner may help you relax and focus more on the pleasurable touching of lovemaking than on the erection itself. Focusing too much on having an erection may make it difficult to have one.

    Sensual exercises may be most helpful if done in a soothing, relaxing, and playful atmosphere. Put on some pleasant music, turn off the phone, and concentrate on your partner.

    Discussing Erectile Dysfunction With Your Doctor

    If it's temporary and only happens occasionally, problems getting or keeping an erection aren’t cause for concern. There could be any number of reasons. It could be fatigue, stress, or even side effects of a medicine you just started taking. But some men have a more frequent, longer lasting problem called erectile dysfunction (ED). It’s more common in older men, but aging isn’t the cause. In nearly 75% of ED cases, there’s a physical cause. That means it’s time to see your doctor.

    • Nongenital pleasuring. Remove your clothes. Have your partner lie face down. Beginning at your partner's neck, slowly caress and/or kiss from head to toe. Then, have your partner turn over. Repeat the caressing and kissing. Avoid touching the nipples or any part of the genitals. Concentrate on how good touching your partner feels. Then, trade places. Lie on your stomach while your partner caresses you. Do not have intercourse the first day. Enjoy holding, relaxing, and laughing.
    • Genital pleasuring. After you and your partner are comfortable with nongenital pleasuring, include genital touching as part of the exercise. Again, do not have intercourse. If sexual tension from any erection that occurs is too much to stand, masturbate to relieve the tension.
    • Nondemanding intercourse. When both partners are ready, continue a session of genital pleasuring by having intercourse. Do not force lovemaking too soon. Rather, fully enjoy the genital pleasure leading up to it.
