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.
