What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is the inability to develop or maintain an erection. It affects many different people at different stages of their life for many different reasons. These can range from physical causes such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury and drug and alcohol use to physiological causes including stress and anxiety.
There are lots of treatment options available which can help address erectile dysfunction and we won’t be covering them in this guide. For medical and treatment advice, please speak to your doctor, particularly if you are experiencing unexpected changes to your erections as it may be a symptom of an underlying health condition.
Sex toys for Erectile Dysfunction
It is perfectly possible to have sex when you have erectile dysfunction – it might just mean broadening your definition of sex a bit. Take your time to think about what it is you would like to achieve and hopefully some of the sex toys recommended in this guide will be able to help you get there.
If you have never used them before, introducing sex toys to the bedroom can be a bit intimidating, or make you feel as if you are a failure for needing them. Just remember – using sex toys is totally normal and, more importantly, fun! With an open mind and a sense of humor, sex toys can help you experience deep sexual pleasure, with or without an erection.
Achieving and Maintaining an Erection
Depending on the way erectile dysfunction affects you, sex toys may be able to help you to achieve and erection, or help you to last longer once you have one.
Three different sized RingO cock rings
Cock rings can come in all sorts of materials, thicknesses and sizes.
Cock rings are generally made from a ring or band of stretchy material such as silicone or rubber. Slipped around the base of your penis a cock ring will gently constrict blood flow. Through trapping blood in your penis’s erectile tissue they can help make your erection firmer and increase sensitivity. Also, although they won’t help you to achieve an erection it may help maintain one for longer. There are lots of choices available, including ones with a built-in vibrator for your partner’s pleasure.

While they are generally safe we do suggest doing your research before purchasing a penis pump. Make sure you buy one with a release valve which quickly reduces any pressure and do not leave it in place for more than 30 minutes at a time.
In the mood for some solo fun or want to explore pleasure with a partner? Sex toys may be able to help – with or without an erection. Don’t forget sexual pleasure is not just about racing to orgasm. Try new sensations or scenarios, involve all your senses and explore what excites you.
Vibrators are not just for vaginas! Held or rubbed against your penis they can provide deep, constant stimulation, which for some people can trigger orgasm, even without an erection. Smaller bullet or pebble shaped vibrators may be easier to use than ‘anatomical’ ones which are designed for insertion. They can be cupped in the palm of your (or a partners) hand and stroked along the underside of the penis. Larger wand style vibrators may appeal to those who want strong, powerful stimulation. You may want to focus vibration on the most sensitive parts of the penis including the frenulum, the head and the underside of the shaft. The testicles and perineum can be great fun to – explore and find what works for you!

Anal play can be a big taboo for some people, however this area of your body is packed with nerve endings. The prostate in particular can be a source of intense sexual pleasure which you don’t need an erection to achieve. You can reach your prostate with an inserted finger, but there are lots of anal toys available which have been specifically designed for prostate stimulation.
With any kind of anal play make sure you use lots of lube and take your time. If you are inserting anything, make sure it has a wide flared base so it can’t get ‘lost’. Click here to view anal toys and prostate massagers for him

If you are unable to achieve or maintain an erection, but still want to have penetrative sex with a partner, you may want to explore using a dildo in combination with a harness – sometimes called a strap-on.
Dildos come in all shapes and sizes – everything from ultra realistic to rainbow coloured with glitter. There is sure to be one out there that suits you and your partners tastes. You can use a dildo by hand, but for a more natural feel you may want to also invest in a harness. This will enable you to thrust away hands free – just check first that the dildo you wish to use is harness compatible.
