Thanks for your question.

There is still no definitive answer to the question regarding efficacy of acupuncture for treating ED.

A small pilot study involving 16 patients has shown benefit to the extent of 39 % in this study.

See link.

Some practitioners find it to be more useful but there is still no clear answer to this question.

I understand that this may not be the answer that you were expecting to get but I have to be ethical and tell you the truth.Hope you will not hold this against me when rating the answer.
