National Impotency Month: Destigmatizing Erectile Dysfunction

November is National Impotency Month, so it is the perfect time to break down what exactly erectile dysfunction is, how it works, and some methods that can actually help relieve this common condition. 

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

​​Erectile dysfunction, also commonly known as ED, is when it is difficult to get or keep an erection that's firm enough for sex. ED affects as many as 30 million penis owners worldwide. While it may seem like the “end” of sex at first, there is plenty that can be done to help mitigate symptoms of ED, and it is even possible to have an orgasm without ever achieving an erection.

How Does Erectile Dysfunction Happen?

There are many, many different causes for erectile dysfunction, ranging from physical to psychological. Sexual arousal is a complex process that involves the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Erectile dysfunction can result from a problem with any of these. Stress and mental health issues can also cause or worsen ED. Physical issues that could cause ED are anything from heart disease to poor circulation to low testosterone to treatments for prostate cancer and more. 

Which Products Can Help Erectile Dysfunction?

All is not hopeless if you’re looking to achieve an orgasm while living with ED. There are many products designed to help you!

These sex toys are sleeves that one can insert their penis into and use to stroke themselves or their partner. They make it easier to stimulate the penis, since they are stiff. The OTouch AirTurn 3 Vagina is an amazing option, because of the additional features it offers, like different vibration patterns and sucking modes. 

If you are a prostate owner who is trying to have an orgasm, prostate stimulators are an amazing option for you. Giving your prostate some love can help you achieve an erection and have a stronger orgasm than you’ve ever experienced, since the prostate is the penis-owner equivalent of the g-spot. We love the Evolved Gender X  True Blue, an ultra-smooth silicone toy that thrusts and vibrates with two 10-speed motors. The textured, thrusting shaft tapers to a rounded gently sloped head, while the handle features a vibrating mini-thrust tip on one end and a saucy flipper on the other. 

Wands are one of the most versatile sex toys you can get. You can use them to stimulate all of the erogenous zones of your body. And even if you’re not able to get hard enough for penatrative sex, you can use a wand on your penis for amazing, toe-curling sensations. The Starship Super Nova is our personal favorite. You can’t go wrong with a rechargeable, water-proof wand with 10 different vibration levels. 

Penis pumps can help erections be firmer and fuller by bringing extra blood flow to the area. They create a vacuum seal around the penis and when you “pump” them, they expand the capillaries, helping you get more blood flow and a stronger erection. The CalExotics Admiral Sta-Hard Pump has a flanged silicone base and Master-Grip handle to deliver maximum results with every pump session. 

Hollow dildos, also known as extenders, are sleeves that you can insert your soft or semi-hard penis into that will give you extra length and girth for penetrative sex. They are perfect for those who are struggling with getting or maintaining erections, allowing both you and your partner to still get the stimulation that you crave. The Fantasy X-Tensions-8in Silicone Hollow Extension is a favorite of ours. This hollow strap-on features a lifelike 8" dildo and super-stretchy adjustable elastic straps. With a tapered head to ease insertion, the dual-density dildo features our super-soft Elite Silicone on the outside, while the firm hollow inside features Luv-Touch coating for exceptional comfort.


Cock rings are a tried and true partner for those who want to last longer during sex and those who need a bit of assistance keeping their erection firm. They are stretchy rings that go around the penis and/or scrotum, helping the penis stay erect longer. The CalExotics Link Up Verge is a dual stimulating ring that delivers intense pleasure with 10 powerful thumping functions, added Ultra-Soft™ support ring and sensually contoured stimulator. This ring will help you stay hard and can pleasure you and your partner in ways you’ve only fantasized about.
