The incidence of impotence is increasing year by year. The relationship between liver qi, liver blood, liver meridian and erection is described more pathologically. The author thinks that the liver urges the penis with desire; to help the penis with qi; to fill the penis with blood; to constitute penis with tendon and to assist penis with emotion. When the sexual desire is encouraged, the liver qi is power; the liver blood is filler; the liver channel is body, so the penis can erectitl.
