Impotence is one of men’s greatest fears. But what if it didn’t have to be? What if it was the beginning of more pleasure and intimacy than you ever knew was possible?
It’s common for men to feel attached to their virility and masculinity. During sex this often looks like wanting to staying hard or maintain an erection.
Every man I know has at some point been afraid of letting a partner down, or feeling like less of a man, because of not having or keeping an erection.
But what if I told you impotence could be the best thing that ever happened to you?
I know it seems hard to believe, even impossible, but today’s Man Alive podcast guest, Michael Russer, told me that if someone offered him a pill to fix his clinical impotence he wouldn’t take it! Michael and his partner Jacqueline Lopez are speakers and authors. They have one of the most inspiring relationships I’ve ever witnessed.
Michael has overcome more than most men will in a lifetime and he and Jacqueline have incredible wisdom to share as a result. This is a must listen for every man who thinks sexual pleasure and intimacy depends on an erection!
In our conversation we discussed…
- How being less phallus-centric opens up MORE pleasure and intimacy
- How a seemingly awful experience could be an amazing gift for you
- What’s possible in love and relationship when you become present and caring with each other
- A tool for navigating conflict, hurt and upset that allows for smoother resolution
- How Michael and Jacqueline create a thriving, passionate relationship
This is one of my favorite podcast conversations. I know how terrifying most men find impotence and erectile dysfunction. To see that this doesn’t have to be a death sentence, and in fact it can create more intimacy than you’ve ever had, makes me want every man to hear this and be free from dread and fear!
