“The Nurse is In” is an ongoing series where I respond to letters or emails I may have received from readers. All places are real but the medical facts may or may not be. Any characters which might resemble you are not. I promise. I have better things to do with my time. (Actually, I don’t or I wouldn’t be writing this.) Stacey
Dear Nurse Mommy,
My wife has been asking me to write in to ya for the past few months here. I’m not sure why she didn’t do it herself, seeing she’s the ones nagging for an answer, but who am I to tell my ole lady what to do?
Yous sees. I has this condition with my down there region that my wife seems to complain about. Most men my age can’t get an erection to save their…you know…erection. But I’m 69 and I still gots what boys in their 20s only wished they’d have – and I don’t even need any of dem blue pills, you know.
Judy says dat a man my age shouldn’t be chasing her rounds the house so much, but what she wants me to do? Go dawn tah da bowling alley and chase around those old hoes? Not enough penicillin to go round for dat crew!
She should be happy I still wants to give her a run around the kitchen table and call herself lucky.
That’s all I got.

You are right, most men your age are dealing with the opposite condition so you are fortunate that everything is in working order. However, if you have an erection constantly- which does not go away throughout the day- you may have some sort of medical issue that needs to be addressed by a doctor.
I’m sure Judy is flattered and thankful you are staying faithful to her and this is highly recommended on many levels. Sexually transmitted diseases run rampant these days and some of them can cause permanent damage with terrible or life threatening symptoms. So kudos to you for being a good, smart and loving husband.
My advice is to get a routine physical by your doctor and don’t be afraid to mention this at your appointment. You have nothing to be embarrassed about and doctors have heard it all. Believe me!!
This way, maybe you and Judy can have a mutually satisfying sexual relationship and she won’t be begging for you to get help.
Exceptional health to you and yours,
