Nothing has the ability to impact the male ego and self esteem such as Erectile Dysfunction (ed). It is very closely linked to sexual performance and prowess in the mind of many men and women. Problems associated with sexual performance can trigger deep rooted feelings of anxiety and ineffectiveness that can affect and attack one’s image and perception of masculinity. The inability to perform effectively during sex seems to affect men at their most basic instinctive level. It can cause deep rooted feelings of self doubt and even self loathing and anxiety.
The link between ego and Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction can make social life and interaction difficult and can lead to the fear of intimacy which can spill over into every aspect of life. The association between sexual function, sexual prowess and masculinity go way back in history. The number of children a man fathered was seen as an indication of his masculinity and superiority among other men. Even though society has come a long way and our associations and images associated with masculinity have been updated, sexual function is still seen as a basic, masculine function.
Traditionally, men have been reluctant to come forward and admit the problem of Erectile Dysfunction. Largely in part due to misplaced and misguided feelings of shame and inadequacy and fear of public opinion. As information becomes more readily available and solutions to the problem more advanced and our society’s images of masculinity continue to evolve, more men have begun to come forward and admit the problem.
