A lack of sensitivity in the penis is a normal part of ageing. It can make it more difficult for some men to get an erection and reach orgasm.

To help, you could:

  • exercise your penis by having daily erections (even if it's not for sex)

  • try more direct stimulation of your penis during sex to improve your erection


Stopping smoking, losing weight and exercising more often can help by improving blood flow to the penis.
