How can I cause self induced impotence?

More than 1 million men around the world and one in 10 men in the United States suffer from impotence. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, some of which can be induced if you are trying to achieve impotence. But be aware that you can have lasting negative effects on your body if you try to become impotent.

Impotence Causes

To induce impotence, you need to prevent an erection and to do this, you need to prevent the brain from sending sexual impulses through the nervous system to the penis. Normally, sexual impulses cause blood to flow into the penis and cause an erection. All of the needed body systems need to be functioning properly in order for an erection to occur. The medical definition of impotency is when a man cannot achieve and maintain an erection at least 25 per cent of the time. This can be caused by illness and other physical problems, as well as by physiological reasons.

Preventing Erections

More than 200 prescription medications are believed to cause impotence, including those for high blood pressure, depression and pain. These medications are believed to cause temporary impotence. You might be able to get them from your doctor based on your medical history. Impotence also can be caused by emotional reasons, such as stress, depression and guilt, according to When these feelings are strong and overpowering, they can affect a man's sexual ability. Smoking and drinking, according to a study by the New England Research Institute in Watertown, Mass., are both believed to affect a man's ability to achieve an erection. Whether the impotence is permanent and what other damage is being done to the body are still being reviewed.

Things To Avoid

It is believed that regular exercise and limiting the fat and cholesterol in your diet can help prevent impotency. But, be careful and keep in mind how long you want to remain impotent. Not taking care of yourself for an extended period of time can have lasting effects. Herbs such as ginkgo balboa and ginseng are thought to help cure impotence and erectile dysfunction issues, so if you are trying to induce impotence, avoid these herbs. The amino acid L-arginine also is thought to help cure impotence, so add it to the list of things to avoid.
