When 3724 men were questioned about their dietary habits, men who reported a higher caffeine intake were less likely to report E.D. However, this study was based on self-reported data and was not a prospective study (Lopez et al., 2015). Caffeine is a vasoconstrictor, which means that it can reduce blood flow into the penis. Further study is needed to determine whether caffeine improves or worsens E.D. symptoms.

A hollow tube is placed over the penis and the air inside the tube is vacuumed out (manually or battery operated) using a pump. The vacuum pulls blood into the penis, leading to an erection. Once the erection is achieved, a tension ring is placed at the base of the penis to keep the blood in the penis to maintain and erection.
Sildenafil (Viagra) was the first oral phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitor approved by the FDA in the United States for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (it is not approved for women). Sildenafil inhibits PDE5, which is an enzyme that destroys cGMP. By inhibiting the destruction of cGMP by PDE5, sildenafil allows cGMP to accumulate. The cGMP in turn prolongs relaxation of the smooth muscle of the corpora cavernosa. Relaxation of the corpora cavernosa smooth muscle allows blood to flow into the penis resulting in increased engorgement of the penis. In short, sildenafil increases blood flow into the penis and decreases blood flow out of the penis.
