Sildenafil is an effective agent to restore erectile capacity in the medically ill. Two cases are presented in couples whose marital situation worsened after the husband refused to take sildenafil for erectile failure following radical prostatectomy. Treating organically based sexual dysfunctions with medication still requires understanding of the dysfunctions in a broader psychosocial context.
