Do I have Male Sexual Dysfunction? 

The Cleveland Clinic describes sexual dysfunction as:

Sexual dysfunction refers to a problem during any phase of the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the sexual activity. The sexual response cycle has four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasm and resolution.

Causes of sexual dysfunction include:

Physical causes — Many physical and/or medical conditions can cause problems with sexual function. These conditions include diabetes, heart and vascular (blood vessel) disease, neurological disorders, hormonal imbalances, chronic diseases such as kidney or liver failure, and alcoholism and drug abuse. In addition, the side effects of certain medications, including some antidepressants drugs, can affect sexual desire and function.

Psychological causes — These include work-related stress and anxiety, concern about sexual performance, marital or relationship problems, depression, feelings of guilt, and the effects of a past sexual trauma.

The most common problems related to sexual dysfunction in men include ejaculation disorders, erectile dysfunction and inhibited sexual desire. 

What is the P-shot and how does it help?

Although each man’s experience can be different, here is a list of the positive changes that have been reported after having the Priapus Shot performed:

  • Improvement in erectile dysfunction (ED)*
  • Improvement in curvature (Pyronie’s disease)*
  • Increase circulation within the penis for a healthier organ.*
  • Make other therapies work better (if you still need Viagra or Cialis, then it may work better for you).*
  • Increase sensation and pleasure (may help correct the damage from diabetes).*
  • Increased size*
  • No allergic reactions (using your own body’s fluids).*
  • No lumpiness*
  • Minimal pain (no burning from the PRFM since it’s from your own body)*

Erectile dysfunction

Also known as impotence, erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to attain and/or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse. Causes of erectile dysfunction include diseases affecting blood flow, such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries); nerve disorders; psychological factors such as stress, depression and performance anxiety; and injury to the penis. Chronic illness, certain medications and a condition called Peyronie’s disease (scar tissue in the penis) also can cause erectile dysfunction.

Inhibited sexual desire (reduced libido)

Inhibited desire, or loss of libido, refers to a decrease in desire for or interest in sexual activity. Reduced libido can result from physical or psychological factors. It has been associated with low levels of the hormone testosterone. It also may be caused by psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression; medical illnesses such as diabetes and high blood pressure; certain medications, including some anti-depressants; and relationship difficulties.

Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s disease is a disorder in which plaque, a form of scar tissue forms in the penis. The plaque builds up inside the tissues of a thick, elastic membrane in the penis, commonly affecting the top or bottom of the penis. The build-up of this plaque over time leads to a curve or bend in the penis, making erections painful and sexual intercourse difficult or impossible. Peyronie’s may or may not be accompanied by other forms of sexual dysfunction, such erectile dysfunction. The Priapus Shot has been shown to effectively treat cases of Peyronie’s disease. At YoungerMeME, Dr. Varano and his team have successfully treated men with Peyronie’s through a comprehensive treatment plan that includes platelet-rich plasma therapy, the technology behind the Priapus Shot.


Dr. Varano uses the state of the art Magellan® Autologous Platelet Separator System. This system provides the highest concentration and highest quality PRP in the industry.

If you’ve heard of the Priapus Shot, you’ve come to the right place to receive this cutting edge procedure. The Priapus Shot, or “P-Shot” has been shown to help with sexual libido, improving the quality of erections, reversing the curvature caused by Peyronie’s disease and overall sex life. This procedure deserves your consideration. Dr. Kenneth Varano is fully licensed and highly experienced in giving this injection to men, which delivers lasting improvements in sexual performance and pleasure.

This procedure utilizes Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy – PRP. It involves a small blood draw, and the entire treatment takes just one hour. Prior to receiving the injection, testing is done to determine the health of your blood and platelets. A CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel) and CBC (Complete Blood Count) test will be the first step. Note that if you have had these tests in the last 12 months, we can use them.

Upon arriving at your appointment for the procedure, Dr. Varano will review all documentation and information with you. Then blood will be drawn and placed into a special centrifuge – our state-of-the-art auto-loaded platelet separation system, made by Magellan. This equipment allows for the highest concentration of platelets and thus the highest quality of PRP. The process of separating out the platelets takes about 20 minutes. A topical cream is applied to numb the injection site. The injection is relatively pain free. The actual procedure time of the injection is 3 minutes or less.

Platelet Rich Plasma has regenerative abilities. Amazingly, it stimulates new cell growth, which is how it works to make the penis plumper and in some cases, slightly longer. The injection is free of any harmful side effects, and does not cause allergic reaction. Your own platelets rejuvenate the area where they are injected, increasing sensation and pleasure. Other benefits of the P-Shot for men include:

    • Increased blood flow and circulation*
    • Firmer, longer-lasting erections*
    • Better sexual stamina*
    • Enhanced appearance*
    • Improves prostate discomfort and urinary incontinence*
