When a sexual problem occurrs ,it can cause an anxiety response, which inhibits your natural sex response.
This is common cause of erectile dysfunction .

As such brain plays an important role in erection and usually issues like depression , anxiety, work stress, emotional stress, relationship problems, trouble with partner etc can cause erectile dysfunction .
