The Hard Facts on Erectile Dysfunction: Pills, Pumps and Prosthetics

Besides writing his new book, Testosterone: A Man's Guide, Nelson has gathered an impressive amount of information on what causes E.D., what the treatment options are, and what issues become a factor when you throw HIV into the mix. (I did some research of my own, and found this hilarious candid camera video about an "erection spray" that has immediate, sizable results.)
Every treatment and factoid on E.D. is here: pills, pumps and prosthetics (oh my!). Mostly, though, just hearing Nelson repeatedly say "erectile" in his adorable Venezuelan accent is worth the 10 minutes it takes to watch this.
Nelson mentions some great resources and here are some links. His book is available on Amazon, his non-profit is known as PoWeRUSA and has a web site of its own, and he offers resources on identifying a doctor familiar with testosterone replacement on his web page devoted to the topic.
As always, thanks for visiting. It will be interesting to see how many of you "share" this link. Will it be more, because it's a sexy topic; or less, because it's also an uncomfortable one? Hmm. We'll see!
Please be well,
