    I'm 43 and large (8.5X7.0)...for the past 10 years, I've been battling erection problems (not like when I was much younger). When I'm aroused now, I mostly get big and floppy, but not hard enough for penetration. I know it takes a lot of blood to engorge a penis this size, and my body just can't keep it "hard" like it used to. I have used Viagra, and that does fix the problem....but, I'm not crazy about some of the side-effects.

    Are other "big guys" finding this to be the case as they get older?

    Your doc's the expert, but in my case, it has more to do with emotions and energy, not age. I think I get bored more easily now with things that might have been novel & stimulating when I was 20. And it's harder to fake excitement when my partner or relationship is boring. For me the emotional and physical are bigger factors than age or size. But physical architecture does plays a role. I think it's blood flow, not size. I know plenty of older guys who still get hard as a rock. But it's true that some guys with big dicks just don't get as hard as the smaller dicks do.

    If they're gay and bottoms, it's not a problem at all, esp if they can cum from anal or prostate stimulation. Have you ever tried that with your your wife or girlfriends? It can be a turn-on for the partner esp if you have a big dick.

    Agree Ledroit about the bordom factor. Maybe sprucing things up in the sex life or try something new. Or pay that visit to the doctor and get some tests done.

    Just like the heart can have blockages, the arteries to and in the penis can have circulation problems. If this is the problem, you need to see an urologist, a specialist in the male sex organs.

    i am large (about 10"x7") and older than you. i have no problems maintaining rock hard erections, but i do need more stimulation to become erect and maintain it.

    I find that this regimen works for me to keep things "tuned up"

    1. start a jelqing program. the intent here is not to enlarge, but to open up the smaller capillaries and blood spaces that can tend to lose their elasticity and blood flow effieciency as we age. there is enough info in the "Making It Bigger" section to learn how to do this. when performing it, dont use too much pressure and you wont enlarge, but you WILL notice a fuller floppy and after awhile a firmer erection. i jelq for 15 minutes a few times a week and this works just fine as a "toning" routine.
    2. take 3 or 4 grams of l-arginine at bedtime on an empty stomach. this amino acid increases nitric oxide which assists in erections and also increases sperm mobility and volume.
    3. get a good male supplement that includes tribulus. I use Male Response by Source Naturals. Python Extra (a VitaminShoppe.com brand) is also very good.

    lastly, if you are a smoker, QUIT. smoking causes capillary constriction. and get on a regular exercise program (if you dont do that already) for overall cirulatory benefits.

    score one for the little guys!! lol, im just kidding. In all seriousness, I think you should talk to a doctor, there also may be herbal remedies for this, and or meditation. Look into it.

    Nope. Dick size and erectile disfunction are unrelated. Consult a doctor.

    There are drugs for ED. Viagra, Cialis, Levitra. As for side effects, I am told they are rare. Have you tried any of these and experienced side effects?

    actually there is some correlation to dick size versus erectile strength that diminishes as we age. i made a friend on this site who had a bonafide 13.5" by 6" dick and he said that he started losing maximum erectile strength in his early twenties (he was in his early thirties at the time). his problem had NOTHING to do with hormone deficiencies, diet, blood pressure or anything else that his urologist could think of as a cause.

    taking viagra did NOT help that much (he got somewhat harder), BUT after he tried the jelqing program for about 30 days (along with the male supplements that made him hornier so he would be more inclined to keep up the program), his penis returned to its FULL erection stength to the delight of he and his wife.

    this complaint is NOT all that uncommon for those who are truly endowed. i can't explan why, but my guess is the blood volume of the corpora cavernosa and the amount of pressure needed to acheive a full erection is the same but for various reasons this mechanism gets congested and/or deteriorates quicker in those that are very large or maybe to due quick growth during puberty, the maturation process stopped before the internal mechanisms needed to support this size reached their optimal development which maybe wont become apparent until the twenties, thirties or later. this problem was stated and also addressed MORE often in the previous incarnations of this site.

    as far as doctors being the absolute gurus in this area, they are sadly lacking. and even if jelquing WAS the "prescribed" remedy, they would probably NOT be inclined to recommend it, since their training is mostly in prescribing DRUGS.
