Erectile dysfunction (ED or male impotence) is a common condition and is not necessary abnormal. The likelihood of its development increases with age. There are many methods of its treatment. Sometimes, a simple change of sex position, can provide a help. There are no studies that indicate superiority of some position, but it’s logical to assume that a position that involves big muscles will not facilitate achieving and maintaining an erection, because the body will supply more blood to the working musculature (instead of penile tissues).
