In brief: Unable to get erect
For lack of a better description, erectile dysfunction is the inability to obtain & maintain an erection (hard on) adequate for sexual activity leading to distress.
Note that w/o distress, there is no dysfunction. Ed has many causes that should be considered & treated rather than masking w/medications, although these new drugs have revolutionized treatment.
