IS ED a normal part of aging?

ANSWER

Although ED is more common among older men, that doesn't mean it's something you have to live with.

It's not unusual for older men to need more stimulation to help get them aroused than they did when they were younger. But there's no reason you won't be able to enjoy sex as you get older. Lots of guys are able to get erections well into their senior years, and there's likely no reason that you can't be one of them.
