Most men boast about their virility to the point of exaggeration. So the conversation about erectile dysfunc­tion (ED) may not sit well. Tailbone injuries, sacroiliac joint dys­function, and other lower back problems can cause male impotence or atypical flaccidity.

Among other things, the para­sympa­thetic nervous system is responsible for sexual arousal. Para­sympa­thetic pathways originate from the inter­medio­lateral cell columns of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th sacral spinal cord segments. Nerves originating in the spinal cord and peripheral ganglia of men innervate the penis and genital area.
