HARDENING (ERECTION) DISORDER
In males, the inability of the penis to harden sufficiently for sexual intercourse or the late erection is called erectile dysfunction. As the age progresses, the incidence of erectile dysfunction also increases.

EARLY AND LATE EARTHING
before sexual intercourse is achieved in men, immediately after sexual intercourse or before sexual intercourse can satisfy their partner is called premature ejaculation. Late ejaculation, which is much more rare than premature ejaculation, is the name given to situations such as the need for a long time to reach orgasm during sexual intercourse or the need to masturbate for ejaculation during sexual intercourse.
