One Midlife Bachelor’s Experience …

This may be the most important section of this website for you as a midlife bachelor to read.  You might be experiencing Erectile Dysfunction (abbreviated E.D.) for the first time, and wondering what the hell is going on … what to do about it … wondering what your options are.   Or you might be reading this paragraph right now, and saying to yourself, “That will NEVER happen to me”.  Well hopefully it won’t – but it just might.   Let me say this to you – don’t take your healthy sex life for granted.   You won’t always be the man you were in your twenties.   Things change as we get older – sometimes the changes happen so slowly that we don’t notice them.  Other times things change rapidly, or something happens that we become keenly aware of what limitations develop as we progress through our midlife years.  All of those E.D. television commercials are on TV for a reason.   They say that half of all men experience E.D. at some point in their lives for various reasons.  Half of all men is a very large number … a very large percentage of us.   If you are not in this HALF right now, you can at least be prepared in case it does happen to you.

I’ll be honest with you – this subject came up in my life roughly three years ago for the first time EVER … and I did not know what to do or what to think.  You cannot ask your buddies about it – imagine bringing it up when you are out drinking beer.   Not only would the conversation get real quiet in a hurry – you would be opening yourself up to a ton of ridicule.   So discussing E.D. with your friends is definitely out.   Can you talk to your parents about it?  Well – my father passed away, so the answer there is “no” … and it is certainly not anything I’d bring up with my mother.   What about your brothers?   I’m an only child – so I don’t have the luxury of asking any brothers … and even if I did, I don’t think I would.   E.D. is just such an awful, terrible topic – and the ramifications of word getting out that you have it are just unthinkable. 

So where do you go for information on this terrible subject?  How do you know what the causes are, and the treatment options?  Is it all in your mind, or is it something physical within you?  Where do you go for help, knowledge, and assistance?  Those are all the questions that I struggled with – and they are why I’m writing this section for the benefit of all midlife bachelors.   No – I’m not a physician or a psychiatrist … so I cannot give you all the answers, but I can at least share what I’ve learned.   And since I believe I have learned a lot, I think we can all benefit from this knowledge.   Let me say that I never did find any particular website or book or anything that would explain to me all the various physical, social, and psychiatric causes and treatments.   Maybe I didn’t look hard enough – I don’t know.   One thing is for sure – I had a hell of a time admitting that I had a problem at first … that was probably the biggest hurdle for me to overcome.  First I had to admit it to myself, and then the next hardest thing to do was to admit the problem to my girlfriend.   Once it was finally all out in the open between us, I was at able to start looking for some kind of solution.
