Anxiety induced ED is most often associated with young men – inexperienced young guys just starting out their sex life.
But in reality, anxiety induced ED (also known as sexual performance anxiety, or psychological ED), hits men of ALL ages… and is the NUMBER ONE CAUSE of erectile dysfunction in men both young AND old – and everything in between.
Think of it like this… if anxiety is enough to block a young man – with a perfectly functioning penis, and a body so packed full of testosterone that he breaks out in pimples – from getting an erection, imagine what it can do with a middle aged man with slower circulation and lower testosterone levels?
The problem with anxiety-induced ED hitting a man in, say, his 40’s or 50’s, is that the man fails to get an erection and then assumes: “this is the age I’m supposed to get erectile dysfunction… I knew it was coming…” and then they go off to the doctor for their medical solution… (if insurance and finances permit).
And then they believe they have to take a pill every time they want an erection for the rest of their lives, and go on feeling deep down “I have ED”.
Excessive fear, doubt, worry, stress, or otherwise uncomfortable mental state makes it hard for arousal to increase enough (mentally and through your body) to the point that you can get an erection.
You need to be at ease, mentally, in order to become aroused, and confident in your abilities… at least for the most part.
And this same rule applies to men of all ages. So imagine a recently divorced man, just starting to date again?
This man is most likely full of a big mixture of different feelings… guilt, self-doubt, worry… (mixed in with some “YEAH! NEW PUSSY!!”).
If the guilt and self-doubt are allowed to grow larger than the “new pussy” feeling, then he will be unable to get an erection – anxiety induced ED will have kicked in, and it can become a vicious cycle.
…On the other hand, if the recent divorcee (or cheater, or whatever his story is – I don’t judge, it’s not easy being a man), ADMITS to himself that he’s anxious/guilty/worried (which weakens its grip on your arousal), but allows the arousal to grow larger than this mental block, then he’s on his way to getting an erection.
How To Know If You Actually Have A Physical Problem – And How To Get A Stronger Erection If That Is The Case (without visiting your doc)
If you wake up in the morning (or in the middle of the night) with a hard erection, even if only once in a while, then your physical machinery is working just fine… if you can’t recall the last time you woke up with morning wood, then you may just have to get your body moving again….
Getting your body moving gets your circulation going… getting your circulation going gets your erections growing fully again.
- Get some cardio – even if it’s just getting up and running around the block every other day.
- Lift weights, power workouts: squats, leg press (your legs are testosterone factories), bench press (compound workouts that utilize many muscles at the same time are great for increasing T).
Also, make sure to spark your mental arousal again – watch some porn if need be… get those “creative juices” flowing. Then let loose on your wife or girlfriend (or mistress…). For more natural ways to achieve stronger erections and overcome anxiety-induced ED, click here…
Have a good one!!
