can you tell me is blood pressure(hypertension) responsible for more and erectile /hard erections.does diabetes opposes it.?

Neither is good.: The penis erects by trapping blood in three spaces. Higher blood pressure won't increase the erectility, but if untreated can damage the vasculature to the penis. Diabetes can impair ability to obtain an erection: it alters the nerves ability to function which control erection and release of erection, as well as damaging the vasculature... So, neither is good.
