The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    How is it possible for an 18yo male to have an erectile dysfunction?

    Call me crazy, but over the course of the past 6 months, I have never been able to achieve an erection. Even through long sessions of foreplay my member just can't get up. I have no idea what would be causing it? How can I go about pinpointing what the problem is? I've even been taking enzyte and while that does work, it hasn't had any effect on me getting aroused. I mean I'd hate to tell my girlfriend, excuse me while I go look at porn for 5 minutes just to get a boner. And then when I do start to pitch a tent it collapses. All that it's doing is making me frustrated as well as my partner.

    I don't know what kind of issues you might have, but have you ever stopped to consider that the porn might be part of the problem?
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Are you taking any other kinds of medication? Some of those can certainly have an effect on arousal.

    Medication, diet, amount of exercise, sleeping patterns, genetics and some other factors play a role in this.

    Things that I would look into:

    Alcohol consumption-medications that you are taking like the above poster suggested. I am not sure what enzyte is? If you are drinking alot I would stop. Other drugs such as meth, cocaine, etc...can cause this. If you aren't doing anything(drugs) and are still having this problem I would recommend seeing a doctor they can test your blood and figure out what the problem is.

    So you're saying that you can get it up for porn but not for a real girl?

    If that is the case the problem is mental - likely some sort of performance anxiety. Have you ever been involved with anyone before? I suggest talking to her about the problem, it might just do the trick.

    Oh, I no doubt believe the problem is mental. It's like I can't believe I just couldn't even get turned on after trying tons of foreplay like I had mentioned. Any techniques to getting over this? I'm going to set up an appointment with my doctor monday and discuss my horrible eating disorders and my loss in sex drive. I use to be the horniest kid alive a couple years back..

    If you have no problems getting it up on your own, then it's probably not physical.

    I have a couple symptoms of depression such as loss of appetite and sex drive. And I think it's more so anxiety disorders I have that bring this on, but every doctor in the past thinks its so elevated that I need an anti-depressent which justs messes with me horribly. I know Alprozam is about the only thing that balances out my anxiety so I can eat. And I don't know, maybe it could be a solution to the too over worried about the sex thing too.

    Listen, you said that you could get it up to porn. If that is the case, it is definitely mental. I know it's a hard pill to swallow, but you won't solve the problem by ignoring it.

    If you can't get aroused by yourself then disregard all my advice, but don't ignore the truth.

    I would also like to add that it's nothing to be ashamed of. My first time with a girl I had trouble getting it up as well - it's not that uncommon.

    I just realized I totally misunderstood your last post.

    I would talk to the girl about it. Also, next time you are getting intimate don't worry about where it is going, whether you will have sex, whether you can get it up, etc. Just relax and enjoy what's going on. If there's no pressure for sex then it may be easier for you to get aroused.

    I think your best bet is to talk to the girl about it, though. Assure her that it's not because of her (girls are crazy like that, and I'm sure she thinks she is inadequate).

    Heh, I have the same problem with my GF, except its more or less Im just not attracted to her anymore. I get jaded fairly easily, therefore I am a horrible boyfriend i.e. I cheat a lot. But med's, depression, anxiety, alcohol, all of which will effect your erection. Hell, Im on Klonopin 1mg 2x daily, Concerta 54mg 1x daily, its ****ing hard and like no joke, it has shrunk since I started to take klonopin lol, used to be proud but once I take my KPin Im discouraged.
    And no, this isnt a pre-sex anxiety issue with my girl heh, lets just say two nights ago I was surprisingly able to keep it up on my meds + being drunk as ****, for 3 hours wit this one chick I just met. Neways, good luck to ya man.

    if your girl can't get it up, but porn can, maybe it's time for a new girl. Are you still attracted to her?

    Man that sucks if you can't get it up I would just try to relax as others suggested. I've never had trouble getting up my problem with a new girl is trying to finish, it takes me forever and the girls always ask me why it's taking so long.

    Why would porn be a part of that problem? Do you mean that if you watch porn regularly it'd be harder to find your partner sexually appealing? (only asking because I love the porn, but don't find my gf any less appealing).



    To the OP - you mentioned you'll see your doc about this and your eating disorder. Could your eating disorder be causing you to have a very low intake of fat? Because that could be the problem right there.


    And everyone's right that many drugs (legal or illegal) can cause erectile dysfunction as well.
