Real Ways to get Harder Erections

Sex is a wonderful thing. It releases endorphins, which improve your mood, aids in relaxation, and can even help get rid of headaches! Unfortunately, some men feel like they can’t get an erection or their erection isn’t hard enough to satisfy their partner. These unpleasant feelings can prevent you from initiating sex, which can in-turn damage your sex life and even your relationship! We’ve gathered together some of the myths about erections; hard, soft, and everything in between, to help shed some light on this otherwise uncomfortable situation.

satisfy-your-partnerMyth 1: Pills Solve Everything.

It may be tempting to pick up those brightly colored penis pills that you see at the local gas station or convenience store. While these may give you a temporary (and let us emphasize temporary here) boost, they won’t address any underlying problems. Also, depending on the ingredients, these pills can actually become addicting as well!

Myth 2: I’m too young for erection issues!

Erection problems aren’t only caused by age. The inability to get a harder erection can be caused by:

  • Drug or alcohol abuse
  • Unhealthy lifestyle choices (obesity, too much fast food, etc)
  • Smoking

Or any of a great variety of other similar causes. While you are never too young for erection problems, the earlier you discover the source of the issues, the easier it is to treat!

Myth 3: I don’t need to see my doctor.

If it is causing a disruption in your normal life, then you might want to make an appointment with your doctor. It may be a simple diagnosis or it could be the sign of something more complicated that requires further diagnosis and treatment, but you’ll never know until you make that appointment. Don’t be shy! The health of your reproductive system is just as important as the rest of your body!

Myth 4: I’m just not attracted to my partner anymore.

This is one of the biggest myths that surround erection issues. People, especially young people who suffer from problems with harder erections, may think that they can’t get it up simply because they are no longer attracted to their object of interest, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. At this point, it becomes important to assure your partner (and yourself) that the feelings of attraction are still there, it’s just the penis that is refusing to cooperate.

have-real-sexMyth 5: I masturbate too much!

This may be an old wives tale that was created to discourage young men from masturbating too often or too vigorously. Masturbation does not affect your ability to get a harder erection, though it may have some effect on your stamina. Some studies have also shown that people who often use porn as the source of their arousal may find it harder to become aroused by a normal partner, but this is a psychological issue that may need to be addressed by a counselor, not a physical one that requires a doctor’s treatment.

Myth 6: There’s nothing I can do to fix it!

You couldn’t be more wrong. If you’ve visited your doctor and no underlying cause has been discovered for your inability to get a harder erection, it may in fact all be in your head. Stress is one of the most common causes of erection difficulties, especially in younger to middle aged men. If you are experiencing high levels of stress in your life, it can negatively affect your overall health and well being as well as your sexual health.


As the ridiculously overhyped Disney movie put it, sometimes you just have to “Let it go!” Let go of all of your stresses and worries, and just focus on enjoying your partner and your time together. You may find that once you get rid of all the extra crap inside your head, the rest of your body takes over and everything works out perfectly.

Do Penis Pills Actually Work?

Erectile dysfunctions and other sexual problems is a sensitive subject even for the most confident of men, and many would rather refuse to acknowledge the problem rather than speak to a doctor. penis-pillsThere are an enormous variety of over the counter ‘penis pills’ that are designed to help with these sexual problems, but finding a product that works can be like searching for a needle in a haystack at midnight. Here are a few things to look for, and a few things to avoid, when you’re searching for the ideal solution to your problematic erection.

thumb-upDo: Shop Around

If you’ve walked into a gas station or convenience store in the last decade, you’ve probably seen a sampling of the pills that are available.

The packages are usually brightly colored with names like Black Ant or Tri Power Zen, and covered with pictures of scantily clad women and virile, muscular men.

Keep in mind, though, that since the invention of this wonderful thing we call the internet, prescription penis pills are no longer your only option. Shop around, visit and do lots and lots of research before you pick a product to try.

thumb-downDon’t: Try anything if you can’t read the label.

Asian erection solutions may work great, but if the label is in Japanese or Mandarin, then you have no idea of the correct dosage, the ingredients, or any possible side effects. If you feel the need to learn Japanese just so you can use these imported pills, then more power to you, but if you don’t understand the label, your safest course of action is to skip the pills.

thumb-upDo: Pay Attention to the Ingredients

Generally, reputable companies that offer penis pills will have their ingredients listing available on their website. Pills that claim to be 100% natural usually include things like:

  • Niacin
  • Vitamin B6
  • Magnesium
  • Zinc

doctor-adviceAs well as a variety of herbal ingredients. It is important to pay attention to the ingredients on these pills. Not only will this let you know if there are any ingredients included that you may be allergic to, it will give you the opportunity to find out if the pills will react badly to any medication you are currently taking. If you’re not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Also, be wary of any products that include names such as Sildenafil in the active ingredients, especially if they quite obviously come from overseas. Sildenafil is the active ingredient in the prescription drug Viagra, and if it’s not regulated by the FDA or other similar program, it is possible that the dosages are not correct or may be dangerous.

thumb-downDon’t: Take more than one type of pill at a time.

It might be tempting to load up on a bunch of different penis pills at once to get the best reaction possible. In a word, DON’T. Not only do you run the risk of causing a harmful drug interaction, that many erection-inducing chemicals in your system could result in a priapism, which will undoubtedly end in a rather embarrassing trip to the Hospital Emergency Room.

thumb-upDo: Contact a Medical Professional if you start experiencing side effects

It doesn’t matter if you think these side effects are minor. If you start experiencing any sort of side effect, contact a medical professional immediately. Take the pills or package with you when you go to the hospital or doctor’s office. This provides the doctor or nurse with all the information that they need to make a proper diagnosis and choose the appropriate course of treatment.

thumb-downDon’t: Get Discouraged.

Not all penis pills will work the same. Some, especially the ones that rely on an all natural formula for their pills, may take longer to work and may require a certain period of time before you see any measurable results. Be patient, read the instructions, and don’t let yourself get discouraged if you don’t see immediate results. If it solves your erection dilemma without any nasty side effects, it may be worth the wait.


If you are experiencing erection problems, then your first step should be to make an appointment with your doctor to determine, if possible, the underlying cause of the problems. If he or she determines that you’re healthy enough for sexual activity and you can try penis pills without risk to your health, and then simply remember these simple guidelines. These easy do’s and don’ts will make it easier to find the best pill for you. Good luck!
