Men love sex. They talk a lot about it, thrive on it and can’t get by without it, even well into their eighties.


Unfortunately, about 31% of them can only engage in oral sex. Meaning, they can only talk about it, nothing more. Yes, statistics show that this many suffer from sexual dysfunction of one form or another.


For them, what was once a very pleasurable experience has simply become a good, albeit forlornly, topic of discussion with the boys over a cup of coffee.


Some have given up hope of ever regaining that fire, while others have resorted to science to get back their sexual virility.


And they did, but not without confronting and accepting the issue.


What is sexual dysfunction?

Sexual dysfunction refers to the problems couples encounter during any phase of the sex act, i.e., foreplay, keeping that excitement, orgasm and gratification. It makes satisfaction incomplete or elusive, if not impossible.


Sexual dysfunction can be caused by:


<!--[if !supportLists]-->o        <!--[endif]-->Physical or medical factors:

Diabetes, heart and vascular diseases, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalance and many others, can cause sexual dysfunction..


Some chronic diseases like kidney or liver failure, alcoholism and drug abuse, as well as the side effects of some drugs for depression can also result to sexual dysfunction.


A visit to your physician is a must before fixing something from the kitchen sink or visiting your favorite Chinese druggist to fix the problem


<!--[if !supportLists]-->o        <!--[endif]-->Psychological factors

Work-related stress, anxiety about sexual performance, feelings of guilt, depression, trauma over past sexual experiences are some of the “mind” problems that can induce sexual dysfunction. They are more difficult to handle if not faced head on.


Sexual dysfunction affects both men and women


Sexual dysfunction problems among men:

Among men, the most common are:


<!--[if !supportLists]-->o        <!--[endif]-->Ejaculation problems such as premature,, inhibited, retarded or retrograde (when the semen is redirected to the urinary bladder instead of being ejected via the urethra) ejaculation.


Whatever it is, it is like having an encore before or well after the end of the program or none at all.



<!--[if !supportLists]-->o        <!--[endif]--> Erectile dysfunction is a fancy term for impotence. It is the inability to achieve or sustain erection for satisfactory sexual activity.


This is the most common form of sexual dysfunction. It can be very frustrating, not to mention outright embarrassing. Imagine raising a flag not on a pole but on a rope. It just will not fly.


<!--[if !supportLists]-->o        <!--[endif]-->Sexual inhibition which means a decrease in the desire or interest in sexual activity.


Through the wonders of science sexual dysfunction is no longer an issue that prevents us from indulging in the pleasures of good sex.


But men are men and they are loathed or inhibited in admitting their diminishing sexual desire, stamina or prowess. Hence, they engage in oral sex.


While age and physical condition are real issues that affect sexual desire or performance, they simply are not good excuses for self-denial.
