Be it low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation, these are just a few of the most common problems that people with a penis can experience. Compared to vulva owners, men and penis owner's have a tendency to 'suffer in silence', and sexual health in particular can be a minefield.

The main cause of issues such as ED (erectile dysfunction) can be attributed to one or a combination things including; biological and physical factors, psychological, social and environmental factors all of which can play a role together or individually in creating sexual difficulties.

The fairly recent introduction of Viagra in the 1990's has gone a long way to normalising and opening up communication channels concerning male sexual health, but is this just a quick fix route to cover deeper underlying issues? Changing the way you think about sex, performance anxiety, body image etc. are subjects that need to be talked about.
