When should I have sex if I have erectile dysfunction?

If you always have sex in the evening, right before turning in for the night, you may want to consider mixing things up a bit if you have erectile dysfunction. After all, do you really want to wait around for your package to perform? Instead, be up for jumping into the sack whenever your member is feeling extra frisky, morning, noon, or night. Not only will this provide more opportunity for sexy time, but the added spontaneity could give the both of you an extra libido boost.

And morning sex can be such a nice way to start your day. Because androgen levels are highest between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., your desire should be at its peak. Afterward, you can shower together, holding onto that last bit of intimacy while also washing off the slickness of sex, and the grit of a long night's sleep.
