Erectile Dysfunction

“Sudden erectile dysfunction

will happen to most men some time in their life.”

sudden erectile dysfunction is usually not serious

Most often, it doesn’t last long and is nothing to be concerned about. As we age, it’s also just a question of “When”. Fortunately, this sudden ED usually goes away just as suddenly as it came....

For men with a bent penis, however, it rarely resolves until the shaft is straightened. And, if the bending is straightened with a surgery, the ED could get worse.

Sudden Erectile Dysfunction
Peyronies Disease Treatments

If you now have Peyronies disease, sudden erectile dysfunction may be a result of your severe bending, and nothing more. As you already learned, this type of ED usually disappears “magically” after you straighten your bent penis.

Have no fear. That bend is usually very easy to straighten, Safely and Effectively, without surgery, injections, or drugs. Once you learn how. And, here is where you will find out how.

Serious Erectile Dysfunction

Before we get to sudden erectile dysfunction, first, let’s talk about the more serious kind of ED that most men know about.

Most serious ED usually comes slowly. You notice you just aren’t as aroused as you used to be. Or, you’re aroused, but, your erection comes slowly. It’s weaker.

This progresses. Usually over the course of years. Until one day, you notice it’s really difficult to get hard. If you even get hard at all.

This is normally due to your entire system weakening. Becoming sexually malnourished (no matter how much you eat). Or, over stressed. It also happens with age.

But, if you’re 40 or under, your age has very little to do with ED. Your years of incorrect living choices have everything to do with it:

  • Poor food choices

  • Too much sex

  • Too much alcohol or tobacco

  • Too much stress

  • Chronic lack of sleep

  • Constant worry, anxiety, grief, etc...

At 40, if you are normally healthy, you should still be in pretty darn good sexual condition. But, did you know that that’s not the case 50% of the time?

50% of men over 40 suffer from ED.

"If you or your partner is concerned about erectile dysfunction, you’re not alone. Dr. Mark Newton, a urologist with UnityPoint Health, says he sees men daily who are concerned about it. He defines erectile dysfunction as the inability to get or keep an erection for satisfactory sexual performance. The erectile dysfunction causes typically worsen over time and can progress from mild to complete impotence, if not treated appropriately.

What Age Does Erectile Dysfunction Start?

Dr. Newton says you might be surprised by how many men have erectile dysfunction. He says it affects about 50 percent of men over the age of 40 and is even more common as men age."

reference: Dr. Mark Newton, "Erectile Dysfunction: It's More Common Than You'd Think",

To me that was a very shocking statistic!

Erectile Dysfunction

Here are some of the causes of ED. Both physical and psychological.

Physical causes include, and are not limited to:

  • Injury to the genital area
  • Clogged arteries

  • Peyronies disease

  • Diabetes

  • Parkinson’s Disease

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • High blood pressure

  • Obesity

  • Medications such as diuretics, muscle relaxers, beta-blockers, antidepressants

  • Alcoholism

  • Long term tobacco use

  • Spinal injury

  • Liver disease

  • Kidney disease

Psychological causes of erectile dysfunction can include, but are not limited to:

  • Performance anxiety

  • Relationship conflicts

  • Emotion stress (caused by relationship, social, economic or professional reasons)

  • Depression

Other than injury and Peyronies disease, none of those things cause sudden erectile dysfunction.

When You Suddenly Lose
Your Sexual Power

Now let’s talk about sudden erectile dysfunction.

Sudden erectile dysfunction, in the case of Peyronies disease, is not immediate. Like it would be from an injury. Or, sudden emotional trauma.

With PD, "sudden" doesn't mean immediate. With PD, this mean in a month, even in 6 months or a year, everything just went to hell."

I simply use the term "sudden" here because the condition comes on relatively quickly.

And, I use the term "sudden" to differentiate this type of ED from the degenerative conditions that normally take a long time to develop and that may or may not be reversible.

This way  we can group the ED caused by PD with the other common types of ED that can usually be reversed much more quickly.

It's Usually NOT
An Unrelated Side Effect

Because the problem didn’t happen literally overnight, most men assume the dysfunction is a whole new problem of it’s own. An unrelated condition.

With Peyronies, that is not usually the case.

Up until recently, you were doing just fine. But now, you can’t get a decent erection, or maybe, any erection at all. And, if you do, it’s horribly bent.

Many men presume they now have another horrible condition. They never realize that the dysfunction can be a side effect of their penis bending.

The Main Reason For Sudden Erectile Dysfunction

Injury is the main reason for sudden erectile dysfunction.

But, emotional trauma of any kind can cause sudden erectile dysfunction in even the healthiest men. In a moment. Or, slowly over weeks, or, months.

When it comes to Peyronies disease, emotional trauma and depression are the number one causes of ED.

We still call this “sudden erectile dysfunction” because it comes on in a relatively short time. And, it always comes as a result of your severe bending.

If you were OK in the erection department before the bend became a problem, this article is for you.

that are
Erection Killers

In very basic detail, with emotions, here’s why you get hard, and, why you may not:

Your erections are formed by some specific hormones that are released into your blood stream when you get sexually aroused.

These hormones cause your penis to fill with blood. They also signal the blood vessels in your shaft to hold this blood by prohibiting the release of this blood.

Immediately after your orgasm, other hormones are released, your body relaxes, your penile blood vessels are signaled to open, you get soft again.

Hormones of all kinds regulate a great many functions in your body.

Now, with emotional trauma or turmoil your body is getting all kinds of different signals for what it needs to do. You may be experiencing grief, anger, or any other strong emotion and your body is not saying, “OK, let’s procreate.”

No, it’s telling you to cry, or run, or fight... And, there are a whole batch of other different hormones your body uses to help you achieve these things.
 Sudden erectile dysfunction can result from this.

At these moments your body is not producing erectile hormones. And, if for some reason it still is, they are being over run by the hormones that are trying to energize you to save your life.

If you’re harboring any of these negative emotions, sudden erectile dysfunction may be the result in the sex department for you.

Here’s How This Works
In Reverse

Can you remember having a terrible argument with your lover? Having intercourse probably wasn’t what you were craving at that moment. Your body was in fight mode and your hormones were filling your body with strength for the fight.

Your penis was undoubtedly limp and not the focus of your attention at all.


Can you remember a time shortly after such an argument when you had “make up sex”? Shortly after the fight? Everything somehow got into full gear down there. Didn’t it?

Here’s what happened with your hormones:  The anger left. The negative feelings left. All the fight or flight hormones stopped being sent to your blood... Your liver neutralized them.

After a while, rather suddenly you got totally excited by your partner and all the pent up sex hormones got released. You popped a boner on the spot! Probably hard as steel. Your partner looked really good to you. You just wanted to hold her.... Am I right?

That’s all from emotions. Psychological causes. There was no physical malfunction there at all.

Sudden Erectile Dysfunction
Not Always "Sudden"

“Sudden”, for erectile problems, can mean: Immediately, in two minutes, a month, or even many months.

Sudden erectile dysfunction is a lack of sexual response due to something that does not involve chronic physical degeneration. Serious physical degeneration just doesn’t often happen that fast.

"Sudden erectile dysfunction is usually an injury issue,


an emotional issue.

Sudden erectile dysfunction can also be caused by
fatigue, illness, sudden immense stress, etc..."


Peyronies Disease Treatments
Have Reversed
Erectile Dysfunction

This website is devoted to explaining the bent penis treatments that have proven successful. So, let’s talk about a severely bending penis, sudden erectile dysfunction, and the available treatments.

With PD (Peyronies Disease), your “sudden erectile dysfunction" could mean: “over the last few months”, or even, “over the last year”.

It may not seem like it, but, that’s pretty sudden when it comes to going from rock hard erections to chronic soft as jelly erections.

This is normally an injury or emotional issue. With PD it could also be a pain issue when becoming erect is painful because of severe bending.

But, most of the time, it’s emotion. Embarrassment depression, humiliation,....

Either way, effective PTT (penis traction therapy) treatments, can straighten almost any bent penis, and the ED caused by the bending will usually disappear “like magic” once the erections are straight again.

This Is Not The Time
Sexual Stimulants

"Starting with sexual stimulants: drugs, medications, or herbal pills,
at this time,
is totally the wrong answer."


Because there is usually nothing different with your hormones and glands if PD is the cause of your erectile loss.

Sudden erectile dysfunction with PD has two reasons.

1)  The pain a man can experience when getting erect with a severe bend may be intense. Does it make sense that this would cause sudden erectile dysfunction?

Your body knows pain is a warning of something wrong.

When your erections start causing you pain, your body stops making them. Or, it makes them very weak and soft so they don’t hurt much, if at all. That does make sense. Right? Your body is trying to protect you from danger.

2)  The other, even more common sudden erectile dysfunction we get with PD is caused by humiliation, shame, embarrassment, depression.... It’s emotional. It’s called psychological impotence.

I mean no man says, “Hey, come here. Come see this. I have a really hideously bent dick. Isn’t it great!!?”

Am I right?

It’s a nightmare!

That bend makes us feel weak. Embarrassed. Inferior. Freakish. Depressed....

All those negative emotions are real sexual hormone killers. And, these negative emotions are what cause this kind of sudden erectile dysfunction all too often.

The good news is:

“If Peyronies disease caused your sudden erectile dysfunction,
you will most probably get your normally hard erections
back again

once you straighten your shaft out.”

That’s right. If you were getting nice normal erections before the bending got severe, you will more than likely be getting them again when your shaft is decently straight again. Not even perfectly straight. Just decently straight.

Don’t Unnecessarily Risk
A Serious Health Problem

This is very important to mention. Please take the warning seriously.

Don’t risk your health, or, a serious health problem with sexually stimulating drugs, herbs, or other substances because you have temporary ED.

sudden erectile dysfunction is usually nothing to worry about

“Erectile drugs, herbs, and stimulants of any kind

are extremely dangerous for some men to use.

They can potentially cause a heart attack, stroke,
blindness and other serious physical problems,

including death, for some men.”

The biggest problem there is: Many of these men never even realize they were at risk.

If your sudden erectile dysfunction was caused by your severely bent penis, it's a wise idea to straighten your shaft out first. Forget about sexual stimulants for right now.

If that bending was the cause of your erectile dysfunction, straightening your shaft out will most likely clear the problem up “like magic”.

“How Do I Do That?”

“How do I straighten my erections?”

“Is there a way, besides surgery, that is medically endorsed and proven to work?”

Those are great questions.

The Fact Is:

There are only three methods of penis straightening that have proven effective:

  •  Surgery

  •  Xiaflex® Injections

  •  Correct Penis Traction Therapy (PTT)

EVERY other methods has either proven ineffective, or, minimally effective at best. And, that’s only for certain types of cases.

Three Methods PROVEN To Work

Let’s take a look at the only three Peyronies disease treatments (all medically endorsed and recommended) that have proven to work. And, let’s see what each involves.


surgery for a bent penis

A penile surgery of this type will cost you between $8,000 and $19,000.

You’ll be in the hospital for a few days.

You’ll most likely need a catheter for a while.

And, you’ll risk these possible hideous after effects:

  • Impotence (yes, your cock is now straight, but it doesn’t work)

  • Inability to attain or maintain a usable erection

  • Reduced sensation

  • Inability to orgasm

  • A shorter penis

  • Urinary difficulties

  • Infection

How exciting is that??

If the surgery is a complete success:  You’ll be back in business in about 6 - 8 weeks, your cock will be a little shorter, and you’ll be out $8,000 - $19,000.

For some men, this seems wonderful. God bless you.

 Xiaflex® Injections:

injections to straighten a bent penis

Injections, instead of a full out operating procedure, sound good to many men.

A lot of men will do anything to avoid going under the knife here. Did you know Xiaflex® injections are the only FDA approved injection for Peyronies Disease straightening?

Xiaflex® has been shown to give about 35% improvement for certain cases.

That’s not bad.

However: The cost for a full set of these injections, including doctor’s cost, is about $30,000. That’s not a typo. Thirty thousand dollars.

Xiaflex® also has some of it’s own possible serious side effects.

From the Xiaflex® website (

“XIAFLEX® can cause serious side effects, including:
Corporal rupture or other serious injury to the penis.”

“Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis. Severe allergic reactions can happen in people who receive XIAFLEX®, because it contains foreign proteins.”

“The most common side effects with XIAFLEX® for the treatment of Peyronie's disease include:

 -  a small collection of blood under the skin at the injection site (hematoma)

 -  swelling at the injection site or along your penis

 -  pain or tenderness at the injection site, along your penis and above your penis

 -  penis bruising

 -  itching of your penis or scrotum (genitals)

 -  painful erection

 -  erection problems (erectile dysfunction)

 -  changes in the color of the skin of your penis

 -  blisters at the injection site

 -  pain with sex

 -  a lump at the injection site (nodule)”


Penis Traction Therapy (PTT):

penis traction therapy for erectile dysfunction

One of the best penis traction devices in the entire world will cost you under $300. Yes, under three hundred dollars.

You use the unit by yourself. It require no hospital time at all.

There is no “down time”. You go about your normal every day affairs while your are doing the straightening.

You risk NONE of the possible surgical side effects.

"With correct traction,

there are NONE of the possible surgical side effects.”

The only negative point: Traction will normally take 3 to 6 months to straighten effectively. For some men, it will take longer.

If the traction is a complete success:  You’ll see you shaft straighten month by month. You risk none of the surgical side effects. You spent less than $300. And, you will probably lose the sudden erectile dysfunction caused by a severely bent penis.

It Doesn’t Take A Genius

It doesn’t take a genius to see which of the only two proven methods is Safest. Does it?

More important, if you can avoid ALL of the possible hideous surgical side effects, and save $8,000, $15,000 or even $30,000, which method makes the most sense to try first?

Especially if you can get a money back guarantee* with traction?

*not all traction devices give this guarantee

Which Traction Device
Works Best?

This is an important decision. And, practically a can of worms for most men.


Because most men have never explored these devices before, and, in the advertisements, all the different brands look very much alike to the inexperienced.

The full explanation of penis traction devices requires a little too much writing for this one article.

And, I want you to have all the facts and information about them. So, I’m going to direct you to another article right now that covers this topic in detail. Please take a few minutes to read it carefully.

The article is: Is Penis Traction the Only Sane Solution for Peyronies Disease?

In that article, and it’s connecting links, you’ll learn everything you need to know about penis traction devices and Peyronies disease treatments.

Sudden Erectile Dysfunction
Caused By a Bent Penis

Normally, reversing sudden erectile dysfunction caused by a bent penis is very easy to do.

In a nutshell:

For most men, sudden erectile dysfunction caused by a Peyronies disease, will disappear without any type of medication, herbs or special treatments. Once they straighten out their penis.

If your bent penis preceded your recent erectile dysfunction, before you go off the deep end and try dangerous ED drugs, erectile herbs, and various other substances and treatments, doesn’t it now make sense to Safely straighten your shaft first, and see what happens?

I think you’ll be very pleasantly surprised if you do.
