Better erections are within your reach, even if you don’t want to take a prescription. Below are some ideas to improve your erections and orgasms.


Prioritize Your Health

Eating better and exercising can help you cope with ED or erectile unpredictability. Staying fit helps youavoid some of the conditions associated with reduced erectile performance, like obesity or diabetes. Finding enjoyable exercise that improves your self-image is vital so that you can maintain your regimen long-term. Further, you can try to strengthen your pubic muscles, as this can sometimes help with erection control. You do this by performing Kegels, pulsing and releasing the muscles that cut off the flow of urine when you’re midstream. 


Part of taking care of yourself includes assessing your alcohol and drug use. Alcohol and certain types of drugs can impair erections and be a barrier to having a good sex life. Knowing your limits is imperative not just for your erectile health but also for your overall physical health. 


Keep Having Sex

Staying sexual can help as well. If you stop having sex for months or years, your body gets into habits that are difficult to break. You may not orgasm as much as you used to, or you may be solely engaging in masturbation. When your body stops having sex, your libido can adjust and you may find yourself not as aroused as before. And if you get too used to pleasuring yourself, it can be hard for your body to adjust to receiving pleasure from someone else. Either of these scenarios may leave you in a sexless relationship. To understand the full impact of this situation, check out my video below:


Ask a Doc

Taking prescription medications to improve your erectile function can help if the problem is with blood flow. Working with your doctor to determine the cause of your erection struggles will help you narrow down the solution. If blood flow is the culprit, medications are safe and effective. 


However, some medications can be counterproductive to your sex life. SSRIs, blood pressure medication, and muscle relaxers can all make it difficult to get and keep strong erections. Sometimes these prescriptions can easily be swapped out, but other times, it is more complicated than that. Check with your doctor to see if you are eligible for something that has less impact on your sex life. 


Keep in mind that many doctors aren’t trained to ask their patients about their sex life, especially when that’s not their specialty. You may have to bring the issue up yourself to get the help you need. The ability to advocate for yourself in medical situations is an important skill to have, so don’t be afraid to speak up! 


Use Sex Aids

Sex aids are more available than ever, and many are affordable. Penis pumps may work for some, but you must choose a safe kind. Penis pumps require continued use over the long term, so consider whether you’re willing to put in the effort. 


Cock rings are another option to help with erectile unpredictability. Cock rings can not only help you stay harder for longer, but they can improve your orgasms as well. If you can find a well-fitting cock ring, you may discover that your climax lasts longer than ever before. This is because cock rings can help keep more blood in the head of the penis than usual. Your girth may increase slightly, too.


Using a cock ring is an excellent way to cope with erectile dysfunction or unpredictability, so it’s a shame that so many people avoid using sexual aids like toys. The truth is that sex toy use is stigmatized, meaning that some people unfairly judge the activity, even though sex toy use is common, normal, and healthy. Further, using sex toys means you don’t have to deal with side effects or potential medical implications.
