just remember....
If the penis continues limp, disengage, and go back to Sensate Focus concentrating on the penis. It will usually erect again shortly, and another trial can be done. Or, the couple can quit and try again the following night. Of course, positive encouragement of the man by the woman at this point is critical. Nothing negative! Make a big deal out of his erection every time it happens. "See, it's working!" Keep this theme at all times. Remember that erection (or lack of it) is really in his mind. Our minds control us, not the other way around.

it's all in your head. thank you, and good night.

Not only did kathryn beat me to the Simpsons ref, but she put a link to the clip! Good job!

Thank you, Zinc! You've cleared my throat AND dazzled me in fireworks!

Also from the link designflea posted (Impotence or Erectile Dysfunction): There is one other facet to this problem - lack of desire. This can occur because of the partner in some manner, or it can occur from a lack of zinc. It seems that a man loses a day's supply of zinc in each ejaculation of semen and sperm. This lack of zinc is a primary reason why teenage boys have so much trouble with acne and pimples. Zinc supplementation can cure this up quickly in most cases.

Now that's one I've never heard. Dermatologist to teenage boy's parents: "Well, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, I think Johnny's acne is caused by excessive whacking off..."

I actually have heard that one about ejaculate and zinc. Strangely, that is the only thing that comes (no pun intended) to my head when I first read this silly string.

Of course zinc alone isn't enough... you also need zinc oxide.
