Reasons for Faking It (And How to Overcome Them)

causes of male impotence

Faking your enjoyment in the bedroom is never a desirable option but can feel like a necessary solution to a problem that you are unsure how to diagnose and manage. Impotence doesn’t just affect men; women can also find they are not getting the satisfaction from sex they want due to factors that affect their bodies. If your intimacy with your partner is falling short, now is the time to pinpoint the reason and correct it if possible so “faking it” becomes a thing of the past.

Causes of Male Impotence

Male impotence is defined as a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection. The problem is quite common when it occurs temporarily, but more concerning over the long term. Impotence can lead to loss of self-esteem and even depression. When impotence does not resolve on its own quickly, the ability to pinpoint the cause often means it can be overcome.

Physical Causes

When sexual problems are due to a physical issue, it often requires medical treatment to reverse. For example, men with diabetes can experience hardening of the arteries, which can lead to impotence as the penis is no longer able to receive sufficient blood flow to have an erection. Other conditions that can reduce blood flow include arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels. This problem can be corrected with a penile implant that is designed to help a man achieve an erection.

Other physical causes of impotence include hormonal imbalances, which are treated with hormonal supplementation. If a particular medication is a culprit in the problem, stopping the medication will usually do the trick.

Psychological Causes

Not all causes of impotence are physical. Psychological reasons behind the problem might include depression and performance anxiety. Performance anxiety occurs when a man has had difficulty getting or keeping an erection in the past, and it affects his sexual performance in the future. Depression is a diagnosable mental illness characterised by feelings of hopelessness and sadness. Fatigue is also a common symptom that can interfere with a man’s ability to perform in the bedroom.

Lifestyle Causes

Other factors that can affect a man’s sexual function include lifestyle choices such as:

  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Street drugs

In many cases, stopping the activity is enough to reverse the damage and restore sexual function.

The Female Factor

Men are not the only ones to experience issues that impact their sexual satisfaction. Women can also struggle with lack of sensation in the G-spot, which may inhibit their ability to achieve a uterine orgasm. When the woman can’t experience orgasm regularly, it can also affect a man’s performance during sex as he begins to worry that he is the cause of her lack of fulfilment.

Fortunately, the G-spot can be made more prominent, which allows for more intense uterine orgasms and a better sexual experience overall. Dermal fat grafts and permanent fillers are two of the options used for this purpose.

If you or your partner are not feeling fully satisfied during intercourse, don’t settle for faking it in the bedroom.
