Among men and women aged 20-70 years, awareness of erectile dysfunction is shockingly low. 😳
The European Association of Urology did a survey of 3,032 men and women in Spain, France, Germany, and the UK. This survey revealed big gaps in knowledge about ED.
What did the survey find?
The survey asked: What is erectile dysfunction?
To this question, 51% of the respondents either gave the incorrect answer, or said they didn’t know.
Germans scored worst on this question, while Spaniards did best.
And another worrisome data point:
Of the respondents that either struggled with ED, or had a partner who did, 26% said they did not talk about it to anyone.
And among those who were in a relationship affected by ED, only 29% of the couples talked to each other about erectile dysfunction.
53% of the men affected by ED, had sought medical help for the condition.
Lastly, 26% of the respondents had never heard of any of the most common treatments for erectile dysfunction.
What is my takeaway from this survey?
First of all, erectile dysfunction is still a ‘hush-hush’ topic. Meaning, most people don’t like to talk about it, or admit that they suffer from it. This is not something new. I have previously written about it here, here and here.
And given that it is something most men are not comfortable talking about, it also seems that knowledge about the condition is limited.
But knowledge is power. With the right knowledge, many men can overcome ED.

And not only is knowledge power, but communication is key. If you want a healthy relationship with your partner and those around you, my experience is that opening up and communicating is important. To bury this condition inside, can not only cause damage to yourself, but also those you care about.
