I'm an older male with weight and diabetes problems, long-time yoga practitioner--yoga hasn't really helped a bit.


Making genital area strong ( the perineum esp. ) with exercises like mula bandha and aswini mudra, plus all asanas that stretch the psoas muscle ( like warrior, and pigeon ) help, but if you have real ED like after a prostatectomy viagra in conjunction with the above brings back what it used to be. Without viagra it'll be OK for you but not so much for her. I think, in the absence of a real medical problem, if you strengthen the perineum it'll be better.

If you are interested in research on ED, the Institute for Erectile Dysfunction Research has set up a new database and resource for news and research on ED at Erectile Dysfunction Central ( ). The site is updated weekly and is available in 23 languages. The site also aggregates research and news on viagra, cialis, levitra, and natural remedies for Ed. Research abstracts on the effects of yoga on ED are available here; simply search the term "yoga" on the site.


Never had ED issue in my life til work routine changed past year, traveling extensively and the sleep deprivation that accompanied it. 6', 165# 38 year old extremely healthy male who is puzzled as to analyzing problem otherwise. Ashtanga stretches & breathing wonderful but apparently futile as of late when it comes to successful intercourse. She is gorgeous and, without question, this is not an issue of desire. Suggestions?
