Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredPeyronie's disease is a condition in which scar tissue forms inside the penis. That can make the penis bend, making sexual intercourse difficult, painful, embarrassing, or all three. The emotions this may create can interfere with sex. Erectile dysfunction (ED), the inability to achieve and maintain an erection, can happen when you have Peyronie's disease. Unfortunately, this side effect, and the emotional toll it can have on you, can also put a strain on your relationship with your significant other. But there are treatments for Peyronie's that may also help put the spark back in your sex life. Talk to your doctor.
Johns Hopkins Medicine answeredYes, erectile function may be adversely affected by Peyronie's disease, although it is unclear whether erectile dysfunction causes Peyronie's disease or vice versa. It is probably a little bit of both, but most patients with Peyronie's disease report normal penile rigidity during erections. The main sexual complaint despite the physical deformity is the bend itself, preventing vaginal intromission or causing pain to the partner.

With Peyronie’s disease, tissues inside the penis involved in an erection become inflamed and eventually harden into scar tissue known as a plaque. The scar tissue causes the penis to curve up during an erection if the plaque is on the top of the shaft, or down if it is on the bottom.
Peyronie’s disease may make sexual relations difficult, and can cause painful or softer erections. A doctor can recommend medication, physical therapy or surgery to treat the condition.
