Did you know that

52% of men experience erectile dysfunction (ED) at some point in their lives?

It's not just something that affects older men, either. One recent study found that 19% of men seeking treatment for ED were between the ages of 19 and 39.

If you're reading this article, chances are that you (or your partner) is struggling with ED. Rest assured that there are many ways to treat ED--both naturally and with the help of medications.

Still, you might have concerns about how this condition is affecting your love life. In this post, we'll reveal the best sex positions for ED that ensure satisfaction for both of you. Let's take a look!

The 5 Best Sex Positions for ED

1. Woman on Top

This is the position doctors have traditionally recommended for men with ED. The idea is that this position minimizes the amount of exertion required for the man, allowing more blood flow where he needs it most.

It also allows the woman to "tune in" better to her partner's body. She can adjust the rhythm, speed, and angle of her own body to help her partner maintain a stronger erection.

2. Reverse Cowgirl

This is a variation of the woman on top position mentioned above (pun intended). Rather than facing your partner, straddle him facing away from him. Another variation is to try this while seated in a chair.

It may feel awkward at first, but again, it maximizes your control of both speed and pressure. We're pretty sure he won't complain about the view, either.

3. Modified Missionary

Missionary position is often viewed as boring, but it doesn't have to be. Modified slightly, it can be one of the best sex positions for ED.

Rather than having him stretch out horizontally on top of you, he should position himself perpendicular to you. He'll enter you at a 90-degree angle, which provides extra stimulation for your clitoris (bonus for you) and extra pressure on the top of his penis (keeping him harder longer).

4. Spooning

Spooning isn't just for cuddling after sex. The shallow penetration may be the perfect recipe for combatting his ED.

Because it's not as "intense" as other sex positions, he won't become overly stimulated. This could help your lovemaking sessions last longer--if time is what you're worried about.

5. Oral Sex

Okay, so oral sex isn't "technically" sex. Or is it?

Let's keep it real. Some nights, even the kinkiest kama sutra position won't be enough to overcome the ED obstacle. Does that mean you have to go sleep unsatisfied?

By no means! Oral sex can be deeply gratifying for both of you. In fact, 80% of women can't reach orgasm without direct clitoral stimulation.

And the good news for him is he can also climax from oral sex, even if he's only partially erect. Any way you look at it, it's a win-win situation.

Other Tips on How to Have Sex with ED

Of course, there's more to having sex with ED than just a certain position. Sex is cerebral as much as it's physical, so you have to go into it with the right mindset.

Here are a few more expert tips for keeping your love life active and satisfying.

1. Build Anticipation

Foreplay doesn't have to start in the bedroom. Send your partner a suggestive text message or photo to get his mind and his blood racing.

This could also be a time to discuss sexual fantasies you've always wanted to try--but haven't yet. Visit an adult novelty shop or browse online for items or costumes you could use in the bedroom.

2. Find the Right Place and Time

Did you have a bad day at work? Are you feeling exhausted, anxious or stressed out?

If so, it's probably not the best time to attempt intercourse. Pick a time when neither of you is in a hurry and you have plenty of privacy.

3. Get Comfortable

Is the room too hot or too cold? Is the mattress too hard or too soft?

If you can't physically get comfortable, chances are your sexual encounter will be subpar. Cold especially is an obstacle, as your partner will have a harder time with blood flow and maintaining his erection.

If at all possible, make your bedroom warm, soft, and inviting. Take a warm shower together beforehand to relax and get your blood flowing.

4. Watch Your Alcohol Consumption

Sure, a little buzz can help you feel relaxed and enhance your sexual pleasure.

But too much alcohol can have the opposite effect. When your blood-alcohol level is too high, this can actually make symptoms of ED worse.

So go ahead and have a beer or a glass of wine--but don't overdo it.

5. Remember It's Not Always About Intercourse

If you take nothing else away from this article, remember this: There's more to intimacy than intercourse.

Try one or more of these suggestions the next time you're alone together:

Treat each other to a relaxing foot or back massage.

Take a warm shower or bubble bath together.

Experiment with sex toys or roleplay costumes.

Give each other erotic massages with your hands and/or mouths.

Spending private time together with your loved one can still be a rich and rewarding experience--even if there's no intercourse involved.
