ZAPPING willies with shock waves could soon be used as a cure for men who cannot get erections.

Sufferers would receive up to 2,400 pulses of sound to their todgers to boost blood flow.

Experts say the treatment, using bursts of low-intensity sound waves, is relatively painless and does not require anaesthetic.

In tests, 100 men with erectile dysfunction, some due to type-2 diabetes, got the shocks twice a week for three weeks.

The team at Italy’s University of Naples found those having zaps along with erection-boosting drugs did better than those just given the pills.

The study has been welcomed by sexual health expert Dr Diana Gall, from online ­service Doctor 4 U.

She said: “Drugs such as tadalafil have long been used to treat erectile problems.

“But shockwave therapy is an emerging weapon in the sexual health armoury and this new study offers some encouraging results.

“Low-intensity shockwave therapy has been traditionally used to treat conditions like gallstones and joint inflammation.

“And when combined with erection medication, it could now offer real hope for those who suffer erectile dysfunction, particularly among the one in ten men over 40 in the UK who also have diabetes.

According to the Sexual Health Association, half of UK men aged between the ages of 40 and 70 years will either struggle to get or maintain an erection.
