Limp embarrassment: The penis feels limp, as in its normal flaccid state, not at all turgid or firm ; erect. Erectile dysfunction or impotence refers to an inability to obtain and/or maintain an erection satisfactory for sexual relations, typically leading to some embarrassment by both partners (him b/c he's not manly enough, her b/c she didn't turn him on enough).

Should be the same: Erection, ejaculation and orgasm are all separate functions. So a man with no erection (say after prostate surgery) can still experience an orgasm with the same sensitivity- but frequently men do note diminished sexual pleasure when they are not erect as they don't like the absence of a strong erection.
