Impotence is the inability to sustain a male erection. Although it’s very common in older men, it can be a very stressful and embarrassing condition. Meditation helps in two vital ways; by tackling the underlying stress which may be causing the erectile issues, and also helping to relieve performance anxiety.

- The problem
According to The Journal of Sexual Medicine around 40% of men suffer from erectile dysfunction or impotence, at least occasionally.
Erectile dysfunction is often symptomatic of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hormonal imbalance, neurological imbalance, or is a side effect of medications or drug abuse.
There can also be psychological roots to the problem, usually bound up in relationship issues, performance anxiety and low self-confidence.
If the impotency is a consequence of surgical procedures, then even meditation may not be able to bring back full function, although it will make the experience of erectile dysfunction much easier to bear.
Smoking is also a major causal factor due to its narrowing of arteries.
The other culprit is stress, which is so often part of coping with all the above, but is itself a major causal factor. Over half of impotence cases are simply as a result of too much stress. We know the cause isn’t physical because during the REM phase of sleep erections occur.

“Getting an erection to work properly is so incredibly complicated physiologically that if men ever actually had to understand it, none of us would be here.”
