There are plenty of tools to help men get or stay hard, pumps, pills, penile injections, etc. Most of them are invasive requiring a prescription, medical professional, or, well, a pump. Fortunately, a new male sex toy does one better. Ideal for erectile dysfunction.

Before we get into the science of whether toys and devices can help in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, it’s important to understand what erectile dysfunction actually is.

If you’re reading this, you may be less than impressed with your unit’s recent performance. There’s no reason to be embarrassed. ED is a fairly common condition, affecting an estimated 30 million to 50 million men nationwide.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) defines erectile dysfunction as a condition in which you are unable “to get or keep an erection firm enough for satisfactory sexual intercourse.”

That means that the partial, incomplete erections you may have from time to time can also be a sign of ED.

In context though, the bigger question is the frequency of this issue. Does it happen once a month after a night of heavy drinking? You might just need to knock off the heavy booze. Does it happen a few times a month? That’s when you should look into treatment.

Erections are the result of two primary processes: increased bloodflow to the penis’s blood vessels, and the trapping of that blood in the penis in two long champers called the corpora cavernosa.

When something or someone turns you on, you enter the “arousal” state. Your brain sends chemical signals to your body to dilate the blood vessels in the penis, allowing blood to flow in. The blood becomes trapped in the corpora cavernosa, keeping you erect. And you’re off to the races.

That’s how it’s supposed to work, if you don’t have erectile dysfunction.

People who do have erectile dysfunction have a breakdown in normal function in one of these areas: either the blood flow doesn’t increase, or the blood doesn’t become trapped in the penis adequately to achieve an erection.

On the surface, toys and devices present a less-invasive, non-prescription option for in-the-moment ED treatment. And it can be less embarrassing to acquire them than to get your hands on a prescription. You don’t need to talk to a health care provider to get one.
