Sex is a vital part of adult men and women’s lives. Aside from its reproductive purposes, sex can offer physical, emotional, psychological and social health benefits. For many men, sexual performance becomes an important part of the sexual experience as they strive to please their partner and achieve stronger and longer erections.
