What causes ED & why do so many men suffer from it?
Erectile dysfunction affects about 52% of men around the world(2). That's over half of all men!
Learning how it happens is a great way to understand why so many men suffer from the condition.
Firstly, it's not a disease. It's a symptom of another problem, be it medical, psychological, or a mix of the two. While it's comforting to know you're not alone, ED can harm your self-esteem in and out of the bedroom.
Here’s just a few of the contributing factors:
- Blood pressure medication
- Antidepressant medication
- Testosterone depletion
- High cholesterol
- Low self-esteem
- High alcohol intake
- Lack of exercise
- Lack of sleep
- Poor diet
It's easy to see why so many men have ED and why the numbers increase every year(3).
Does every man get ED?
Given the many reasons that erectile dysfunction can occur, all men are susceptible. Although we know that the likelihood of suffering from ED increases with age, it also affects a large proportion of younger men between the ages of 20 and 40.
If you’re starting to notice the signs of erectile dysfunction, here's what you need to remember:
- It doesn't mean you're no longer attracted to your partner.
- There are many natural and medicinal ways to treat ED.
- There's a high chance your male friends have had - or have - erectile issues.
- ED is not something you ‘just have to live with’, and you shouldn't feel ashamed to seek help.

Over half of Australian men(5) (52%) between the ages of 40 and 70 have been affected by ED to some degree. Like New Zealand men, over 60% of Australian men in their 60s have erectile dysfunction.
The UK studied men in an age range of 18-60. The results? 43% of UK men have erectile dysfunction(6).

The same study reveals that 50% of UK men have some degree of sexual dysfunction.
The USA takes the lead in the western world, with 59% of men struggling with erectile dysfunction(7). However, age isn't as much of a factor in the USA as it is in other western countries. ED affects 56% of ages 18-34 and 63% of men over 55.
The prevalence of erectile dysfunction in China was as high as 75% a decade ago. However, recent studies show that this rate has decreased significantly, now affecting 40% of Chinese men(8) (particularly those in higher age brackets).
