Sexual Dysfunction is a complicated matter which impacts the lives of men in different ways. Most people are aware of Testosterone Deficiency and Erectile Dysfunction, but sexual dysfunction manifests itself in many different ways. While the source of sexual frustration is often mechanical, psychological issues can also suppress sexual desire. While Sexual Issues can become problematic at all ages for men, the incidence of Low-T and other sexual conditions in men increases with age.

What Are the Causes of Sexual Impairment in Males?
Physical Sources of Sexual Dysfunction
Testosterone is the primary hormone responsible for sexual desire and ability in men. There are many conditions which suppress Testosterone Levels, including the aging process itself. Beginning at approximate age thirty, the body produces diminishing levels of Testosterone, which can eventually lead to sexual issues such as Low Sex Drive and Erectile Dysfunction.
Firm erections depend on healthy blood flow. Hypertension and atherosclerosis can prevent adequate blood from reaching the penis, which leads to erectile dysfunction. This is why medications such as Viagra and Cialis work for patients struggling with ED. They restore blood flow to the penis.
Nerve damage from any source can also break the chain between the brain and the genitals, preventing the penis from getting an adequate signal to initiate an erection.
Prescription Drugs and Sexual Ability
Many Prescription Drugs can eat away at circulating Free and Total Testosterone Levels. For example, Antidepressants can lead to a variety of sexual issues, such as blocked orgasm, delayed orgasm, trouble getting hard, and low libido. All of these symptoms are the result of an Antidepressant’s effects on Serotonin Levels. Blood Pressure medications can also lead to sexual dysfunction because they diminish blood flow. They can also suppress Zinc levels. Zinc is an essential ingredient in Testosterone Production, and zinc deficiency contributes heavily to Low-T.
Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking, and Sexual Sufficiency
Bad habits can also have disastrous effects on sexual function. For example, Opiates have a powerfully inhibitive impact on Testosterone Levels, resulting in erectile dysfunction and other issues in a matter of weeks, if not less. Alcohol also contributes to the Esterization of Testosterone, meaning that it leads to the conversion of Testosterone into Estrogen, which depletes sexual capability. Smoking contributes to hypertension and other circulatory issues which contribute to diminished sexual sufficiency.
Psychological Issues Which Impair Sexual Performance
Sexual performance is heavily influenced by psychological wellness. Many mental disorders such as Depression and Chronic Stress can suppress libido and impair romantic ability. Mood also has a significant effect on your ability to achieve sexual satisfaction. Anxiety, guilt, and stress can all distract you from your ability to perform in the bedroom. Furthermore, your relationships matter. In many cases, erectile dysfunction is related to a lack of desire for one’s partner, or frustration due to marital issues which obstruct libido.
Also, your feelings about yourself can lead to issues with sexual sufficiency. If you’re unhappy with yourself or your body, this can lead to issues. Also, if you haven’t been sexually active recently, your performance problems may be related to your lack of confidence. The same way that men “think of baseball” to extend their performance can also prevent them from adequately focusing on the pleasure and excitement of sex.
If you’ve been having issues with your partner lately, take stock of your life. Are you having trouble at work? Are you experiencing emotional drift from your partner? If your issues are psychological, therapy, mindfulness, or even an open conversation with your partner can reopen the doors to satisfying sexual activity.
