The above post is very informative to understand about male health issues. But i think age above 50 and plus not only suffer fro ED, the young age boys, college boys now a days also face male impotency disorder. Is this because of young generation smoke more at early age and drink alcohol, drugs, masturbate and involve more into sexual activities? What could be the reason behind young age boys facing ED?

I don't think smoking is the sinner here, but more to do will our generel lifestyle. There is a reason that penis pumps like theses one https://aiclegal.org/best-penis-pumps/ has become so popular in the latest 10 years. Boys/men around 16-24 years sit in fron of their phone-tablet-computer most of their time and they do not develop a great vascular system.
