SEXUALITY MATTERS: Opening up a dialogue about erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects a wide range of men. In fact, research shows that 20 percent of men in all age groups and 40 percent of older men are affected with erectile dysfunction. It is a disorder shrouded with taboos and anxiety that often impacts men’s quality-of-life. This often prevents men from discussing the disorder and seeking treatment.
