One such a treatment is Yohimbine*, an extract from the bark of the African Yohimba tree. This has been found to be particularly beneficial in the case of men whose erectile dysfunction has psychological causes. According to Suzi Godson, author of The Sex Book, Yohimbine has a 33 per cent success rate. Yohimbine has also been used to help people who find it difficult to ejaculate, but its side-effects include raised blood pressure and anxiety.
