In brief: Yes!

I agree wholeheartedly w/dr. Khorsandi.
There's no reason to have to suffer from erectile dysfunction if one exercises regularly, eats properly (open to debate but i think most can agree), doesn't smoke, avoids obesity & excessive alcohol. Also, it's important to avoid medications that can cause ed such as Finasteride & dutasteride. And it's important to avoid stress while staying engaged w/partne.
