Age may also play a role, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. You may already know, but it’s characterized by an inability to keep an erection during sexual activities. However, it doesn’t always necessarily mean that you can’t get aroused. Sometimes, arousal may not last long enough to have sex even when it does make an appearance.
