Call us with your questions about intimacy, sex, and relationships: 971-202-0969.
"This is not something men talk about."
"When people feel alone in what's happening for them sexually there is so much shame that surrounds the issue."
"It's rare that someone with a penis does not experience erectile dysfunction at some time."
"It is so frustrating when your brain wants something and your body will not participate."
"We are weird hormonal meat bags with brains. Bodies do funny things all the time."
"It's the exception to find a penis-haver who makes it a lifetime without experiencing erectile dysfunction at some time."
"The rule is, if you have a penis it's gonna do something weird sometimes."
"Bodies do weird things."
"How do I not worry about the thing I am worried about at the moment where it matters most?"
"Sometimes naming the worry takes its power away."
"We don't feel confident until we have experiences, and feel competent, and get positive feedback."
"Enjoy and celebrate what is working in your sexual connection and communication ESPECIALLY when it feels like other parts are challenging."
