If a beta-blocker is associated with ED, I'd suggest switching to a different blood pressure medication rather than turning to a medication to treat the ED.  Fortunately there are lots of alternatives that are not generally associated with ED side effects, like diuretics, ACE inhibitors, and others.

Allow yourself to enjoy the feelings in your penis as you squeeze it at the base. This is the natural way to attain an erection. Then focus on how arousing your woman is and how much she turns you on.

If you are not attracted to your woman, a different focusing strategy is required...
