      Perhaps by looking at sex and love as oranges and apples. One is neither better nor worse than the other, they are just different and it is certainly possible to have one without the other. And it is certainly possible to have intimacy without sex. Physical closeness and sharing without ending in coitus can be very gratifying.

      Love is important, but don't write off being sexually active. There are many ways to have an active sex life, and intercourse is only one of them. If you are in a loving relationship you and your partner can work this out together.

      I celebrated my 43rd wedding anniversary al 2 years after starting the hormone therapy and since starting that therapy, ED has been a part of our life. We had the best anniversary ever. I've found a life mate that goes way beyond sex. We are "there" for each other 100%. I'm not sure what I'd do without her. I really never knew just what love meant before. A kiss means sooooo much more now

      You'll have to work on it but it's great when you do.

      Keep it positive and smile :)
