Coping with Erectile Dysfunction


There seem to be no end to the “authoritative” explanations and “guaranteed” easy treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED). Since the so-called Viagra revolution, conventional wisdom holds that the problem can be fixed simply by taking a pill.

The truth of the matter is, though, that ED is often a complex condition affected by physical, psychological, and relationship issues—and it’s a problem shared by both a man and his partner.

Coping with Erectile Dysfunction is the first ever to address this common problem using a comprehensive biological, psychological, and social approach. It offers a proven-effective program for regaining erectile function, building strong and intimate relationships, and having great sex.

With a therapeutically integrated technique and a unique couple-centered approach, two of America’s most prominent sex therapists offer men and their partners the most effective solutions available to overcome erectile dysfunction.

According to the National Institutes of Health, between 15 and 30 million American men experience chronic erectile dysfunction. This is the only book on the market that addresses the biological, social, and psychological causes of ED, as well as offering a comprehensive treatment plan that includes a relapse prevention program. This is one of the only books on this subject that encourages couples to work together to overcome the problem.

With this book, readers will learn to separate the facts from the myths about ED, find out which medicines and medical treatments really work, as well as how to integrate them into your sexual relationship, and understand and change the important personal and relationship features of your ED. It also encourages you to team up with your partner to develop your own unique sexual style, avoid future sexual problems with an individualized relapse prevention plan, and learn how to integrate medical, psychological, relationship, and lovemaking skills for great sex!
