    @CaveMan, thanks for providing more details on what’s helped. I think the masturbation strategies are especially useful, as we haven’t heard them before. If you’ve got time, would you mind posting here as well? We like to be able to share this page with people struggling with ED and could really use more info! – Nina, ProstateCancer.net Team

    My urologist prescribed the use of a male vibrator. I use it to masturbate with. It stimulates me physically and builds confidence that I may someday be able to have sex with a partner reliably.

    Great point, Joe! There might not always be a physical fix the problem. You might be able to change your approach and attitude, and find joy in a new situation. – Nina, ProstateCancer.net Team
