Women as Allies: Women's Role in Supporting Men with Sexual Dysfunctions

by Men's Health Clinic

Erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation (PE) are two of the most common sexual dysfunctions that affect men globally. While men are the ones directly getting worked up by these conditions, ED and PE also affect women within sexual or romantic relationships. They may feel frustrated, unsatisfied, or trapped in a situation they didn’t sign up for.

As a man, it’s essential that you understand the role that women play in your sexual life (more so when you’re dealing with ED and PE). Women can be your trusted allies in defeating your sexual dysfunctions. They can help you in achieving a more satisfying sex life and have an overall healthier love life while trying to manage ED and PE.

Women's Role as Allies of Men Dealing with ED and PE 

It’s important for men to know that they don't have to face sexual dysfunctions alone, and their partners are their first line of defence from further adverse outcomes of ED and PE. 

While not mandatory, women can offer significant support to their partners dealing with sexual dysfunctions. Here are some of the things that women can offer: 

  • Creating a supportive and non-judgmental environment – It is not uncommon for men with PE or ED to feel ashamed. As partners, women can provide support, understanding, and encouragement for men during these difficult times. They’re naturally more expressive than men, so whenever men can’t express themselves, women can come to the rescue and encourage open communication. 
  • Understanding and empathy towards a partner's struggles – Having PE or ED can be a massive blow to one’s morale, and women have the ability to empathise with their partners. Women can reassure you that things like ED and PE happen and that they are not uncommon. They can reassure you that there are treatments available, but improvements won’t happen overnight. 
  • Educating themselves about their partner’s situation – If your partner is curious about your situation, don’t hesitate to get them involved. Women are wise, and they can educate themselves about PE and ED to better understand what you’re going through. They can provide new insights that can help you better manage your ED or PE. When you’re presented with different options, you’ll know what works best and what doesn’t. 
  • Fostering intimacy beyond physical aspects – Women know that intimacy is not limited within the confines of the bedroom. They can suggest engaging in activities that promote emotional intimacy instead. It can be spending time on a shared hobby or an activity you love doing together, like watching movies or doing outdoor activities. It can also be exploring sensual massages or sensual dances that increase pleasure and can help improve physical and emotional intimacy. 


Why You Need to Communicate with Your Partner When Dealing with Sexual Dysfunctions 

  • To establish trust — Open communication about sexual dysfunctions fosters trust between partners. When you trust your partner, you don’t feel bad about having ED and PE but feel encouraged to manage it. 
  • To enhance intimacy — By discussing concerns openly, partners can work together to find solutions that enhance intimacy and strengthen their relationship. 
  • To prevent misunderstandings — Clear communication helps prevent misunderstandings. It also reduces the stigma around sexual dysfunctions. 
  • To improve relationship satisfaction — Addressing sexual dysfunctions through communication can lead to improved relationship satisfaction, as partners work together to overcome challenges and strengthen their bond. 



Indeed, a woman can show strength by helping her partner find the best treatment for PE or ED. She can encourage her partner to keep an open line of communication about what he is going through. She can also help strengthen their relationship by finding activities that help promote emotional intimacy. Lastly, she can be a partner to provide mental and emotional support so they can both emerge from the experience as better partners.  

Remember, you are not alone in this journey. With the support of your partner, you can face ED and PE with resilience, compassion, and a strengthened bond that will help you emerge stronger together. Above all, tackling ED and PE should be a shared goal. Keep an open mind about trying different treatments and solutions, and work together to find what works best for both of you. It's crucial to find solutions that are comfortable for both partners to prevent any strain on the relationship.
