Hey, Jake... First let me say that what you get from this site is just personal takes on things, not official professional counseling! People give their honest thoughts on what might work & what might not, and not everyone always agrees with each other, needless to say! Which is OK -- at least you get some input, some thoughts to turn over in your mind. And the knowledge that a few people are actually thinking about you & your situation, and wishing you the best.

As for your "title question," I think that in a situation like yours a doctor might indeed recommend an "erection booster" like Viagra (there's a much improved variety called Cialis) on a temporary, therapeutic basis. Someone else in some other post expressed that thought--that an erection enhancer of this type might well help someone get across the bridge so that if the problem WAS psychological, they could regain their confidence in themselves, once they were able to get their key member to "straighten up and fly right" with a little medical help, and then they might well be able to go back to flying under their own power, and not need the booster any more. Maybe so, maybe not -- I don't know -- but it at least sounds reasonable to me. And of course there's always the possibility that there IS a physical/medical problem to be addressed, not just psychological.

From your statement quoted above about having had sex since you were 17, I couldn't quite tell whether you meant you've been having intercourse since then, or have been masturbating since then -- ? -- which makes a difference in the situation, since I'm not sure whether you've been able to have an erection in connection with intercourse at all yet.

I would not even think of recommending that you stop masturbating. Whatever problem you're having with "getting it up" or "keeping it up" with a gf has nothing to do with your having sex with yourself, and you certainly shouldn't deprive yourself of that very natural, normal, and very necessary sexual pleasure and release. You'd only increase your feeling of frustration---psychologically and physically. Keep having your own private pleasures while dealing with the other situation--as often as the urge comes round! Relationships are definitely important; nevertheless, an orgasm is an orgasm is an orgasm....... as much so if it occurs in your hand, as if it occurs elsewhere... And besides, you're producing a lot of fluids that need to be disposed of!

Best ---
