"One of the most sensitive subjects that men fear to experience, but more so to talk about, is the inability to have or maintain an erection in the marital bedroom. With males experiencing heart attacks, diabetes, prostrate cancer and strokes more often, this sadly is a condition which is more prevalent in today's society.
Twelve years ago, I experienced two severe heart attacks within the space of one week and was prescribed life long tablets ever since, like all people who have had a heart attack. One of these medications is known to leave the recipient unable to maintain erections and because it is incompatible and dangerous to take alongside viagra, full intercourse becomes extremely difficult in the conventional manner (ie The missionary position). Also heart attack sufferers are advised to 'take things easy and not to overenergise oneself.' This is an almost impossible task I might add at the height of sexual activity. I recall that the singer Adam Faith died while making vigorous love.
Now though I am no sexual therapist, I am well aquainted with many of their methods used due to my previous years as a marital guidance counsellor in earlier life. The most important thing to understand is that 'love' is not 'sex' and although it is important for the complete person to experience both, having full sexual intercourse is not a necessity to a happy marriage and a non frustrated state of being!
There are so many ways to both give and receive sexual pleasure, but without holding hands, cuddling and kissing one's partner, you may as well forget about all the rest. Without investing emotion, trust, concern and sensitivity into one's relationship, then no relationship worthy of calling one, truly exists.
So think not that you may be on your own when dealing with such sensitive matters. And if needs must and nothing less than the 'full works' will satisfy and suffice, then 'man up', swallow your pride and looking straight into the eyes of your sexually aroused partner simply say,"You know that I cannot energise myself enough to please you, sweetheart, but if you really want to make mad passionate love to me tonight then 'go for it, woman.' I'll just lay back here and think of England!" William Forde: May 15th, 2015.
