Does a man sometimes even need ED medication in order to masterbate to ejaculation?
If you're having problems with erectile quality, yes you might also experience issues with arousal and orgasm. You should discuss with your doctor and, based on your age and lifestyle, determine if you are a good candidate for an erectile enhancer such as Viagra, Levitra, Cialis or Stendra (which is new to the market and thought to work within 15 minutes). Of course there are non-pharmaceutic efforts you should consider, like enhancing the novelty and stimulation, or masturbating less.
Usually, a man should not need any ED medication in order to masturbate to ejaculation. If he has some organic difficulty getting and keeping an erection, then he may need medication to get an erection for masturbation as well as for intercourse. What many people don't know is that a man with erectile dysfunction can be stimulated to orgasm/ejaculation even without an erection, if he allows himself to become aroused rather than be focused on not having an erection.
Having had prostate cancer and surgery, difficulty in achieving & maintaining an erection to penetrate during sexual activity is a fact in my life. An erection is not necessary to have an orgasm or ejaculate ... in my case ejaculate is nonexistent/greatly reduced.
The point is that sex can be fun and satisfying. Like US Marines say when faced with a difficult situation ... IMPROVISE. There are lots of body parts that can be used to stimulate and be stimulated, so be creative. The key is to have a genuine desire to please your partner. That attitude goes a LOOONNG way.
My situation was the result of surgery so brain signals for a normal erection rarely get through, and if some do they are very short lived. Therefore, I need injectable ED med's to achieve an erection. Yes, it is a pain; literally. However, a side benefit is that the erection can last for an hour or two and multiple orgasms possible.
My wife and I have a wonderful and satisfying sex life. We have chosen to.
