Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sexual disorder that is a common psychological disorder.  Sexual dysfunction is can be defined as one’s inability to enjoy sexual encounters, affecting both men and women. Sexual dysfunctions seldom threaten one’s physical health, rather, they tend to affect one’s psychological health; depression and anxiety are common psychological effects of sexual dysfunction.

ED, the sexual dysfunction among men, refers to the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is suitable for intercourse (Morris & Maisto). ED can occur at any time during a man’s life. Physical causes of ED can include alcohol or tobacco use, fatigue, brain or spinal cord injuries, liver or kidney failure, and specific types of prostate or bladder surgery. These physical causes can occur at any time during a man’s life; however, ED is more common in men over the age of 65 (AAFP, 2006). Some medical problems, such as diabetes and hypertension, can also lead to ED.
