Erectile Dysfunction vs. Erectile Dissatisfaction

If you’re a man over the age of 40, you’re the prime market for hundreds of erectile dysfunction advertisements; tv commercials, online ads, junk emails, and magazine spreads for medication after medication. It’s a lot to take in, and it may leave you wondering if you’re experiencing erectile dysfunction symptoms or ED. It’s not a stretch, seeing as the media makes it seem like every man in every household across the world has ED. 

The truth is, ED is increasingly prevalent with age. 40% of men are affected at age 40, and nearly 70% of men are affected at age 70. However, every man is different. It’s possible that you may not be experiencing ED, but rather erectile dissatisfaction

What is erectile dysfunction? 

Erectile dysfunction, once more commonly referred to as impotence, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sex or masturbation. 

What is erectile dissatisfaction? 

If you can achieve an erection while masturbating, you probably don’t have ED, but erectile dissatisfaction. As you get older, obviously your body will change, and that includes your erections. 

Erectile dissatisfaction occurs while comparing your current erection to that of your younger self, and feeling like your erection isn’t quite what it once was. You could notice your erection isn’t as firm or that it doesn’t rise as quickly as it used to. You may notice that even the slightest distractions can cause wilting. Whereas before, you could achieve an erection far quicker and easier; even at the mere thought of someone attractive. It’s important to remember this is a normal, natural change in your body with older age.

What can you do to treat erectile dissatisfaction?

Whether it’s ED or erectile dissatisfaction, it’s not the end of the world. The good news is that you live in a time of proven medical devices that can treat both erectile dysfunction and erectile dissatisfaction, and greatly improve your sex life.

Giddy can be worn safely through any stage of an erection; from flaccid to erect, and is an affordable, body-safe alternative to ED pills, pumps, and outdated constriction devices.

It’s true that changes to your erections are inevitable. Remember; it’s normal. Try to minimize your anxiety and external stress factors since these can have real effects on your psychological and physiological health and, in turn, your erections. You may be getting older but your sex life can still be as satisfying as ever. Communicate with your partner. Take your time kissing, cuddling, and use Giddy for a fast-acting, noticeable difference in your sex life.

  1. I like how you explain that dysfunction is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection firm enough for sex or masturbation. I’ve heard that many people confuse a dysfunction and a dissatisfaction. Thank you for the information. I’ll recommend my people to confirm with a professional if they have dysfunction or if it’s just dissatisfaction.

    1. Right on, Jay!

  2. It could be a psychological issue, if you don’t succeed it with a partner but it is okay, for example, while your masturbation.
    So there can be a lot of reasons of the problem. Perhaps, it is a performance anxiety for you when you think you have to perform sex at the top of your’s capacities and you are afraid of failure.

    The solution could be changing the way of habitual superficial breathing (into deep and relaxing), somatic excercises or massaging the certain parts of the body

    1. Howdy,Thomas! Thanks so much for sending this info over and helping us create a discussion around ED and sexual health and wellness. We agree that breathing exercises can help reduce performance anxiety and improve one’s ED symptoms.

  3. I might have one of these going on with me. It would be good to go see a doctor about it. That way, I can see about going back to how I was before.

    1. Hey Callum,

      Thank you for your comment and for helping us further the discussion on sexual health and wellness. We sincerely hope that you will be able to find a solution! Please let us know if you have any additional questions about the Giddy ED device and our team is happy to help answer them.
