How porn addiction can affect your sex life One-eyed ranger, Rumpleforeskin, upright citizen and leader of the sack are just some of the affectionate names that guys have for their penises, and this is an indication of the close relationship we have with our family jewels.So, when your penis suddenly struggles to salute the queen, stand at attention, or bat a home-run (well, you get the idea) – it is similar to losing your right hand when you are right-handed.Jokes aside though, erectile dysfunction is no laughing matter for the scores of men who report erectile problems at clinics across South Africa. Global statistics show that 1 out of 10 men experience erection problems.However, even if you are one of the millions of men suffering from weak erections, there is hope.By speaking to your doctor, you will be made aware of the various medical interventions that can help put the air back in your rubber dinghy.But if you are a little embarrassed to speak with a medical professional (as most guys tend to be), and you have the time, money and a sense of adventure, then we recommend the following Matildas range of sexual stimulants:• Constrict your boa with a Vibrating Penis Ring. It’s a “firm” favourite and will help give you harder, longer-lasting erections while the powerful vibrating ring gives her delicious sensations.• Put air in your flat with a Penis Pump.

It increases girth, size and pleasure and is the perfect way to maximise your manhood, thanks to the natural libido-boosting ingredients of Jojoba oil and Ginkgo.REMEMBER: These are merely alternatives for you to explore and maybe even bring some fire back to your love-making.
