Erectile Dysfunction

Nothing to laugh at, erectile dysfunction is when a man is unable to get or maintain an erection. There are many reasons why this can happen – sometimes for medical reasons but often it is stress related.

Erection

There’s no need to be ashamed if you get an erection. This is when a penis becomes hard or stiff, usually pointing upwards. This generally happens because a man is sexually aroused – the penis is filling with blood in preparation for sex. Don’t stress if this happens randomly too – this is totally normal.

Slang terms include: boner, hard on, stiffy, wood.
