But he “knew” that if he couldn’t have an erection, the women were going to talk about his lack of erections amongst themselves, and he would never get a date again.

It sounds a bit like high school with gossip and innuendo, and, as a consequence, hurt feelings and bruised self-esteem and lots of lonely people who are not part of the A-list . Adult children and grandchildren often live many miles away, and the opportunities for a hug are few and far between.
