Diet, exercise and relaxation. I have tried them all. Why it didn't work? Can you guys help me? I really don't want to take pills.
First all, you should consider getting help from a urologist. There're more than 10 types of causes to ED, treatment for each cause varies. You may think you have ED, but it's possible that you have something else, not ED. That's why getting help from a urologist is important. There are several ways to help people with ED, medicaiton is only one of them. Physical therapy and surgery can also help.
What kind of physical therapy? My dick gets soft when I jack off and I can't cum?
Is it soft when you have sex or only when you jack off? You are suggested to try medication such as PDE5 inhibitor first.
Dick softness means you do not have enough blood congestion in the dick. So what you need is to let blood go to your penis. Drugs like sildenafil would be very effective to do this. Physical therapy is not very effective as first-line therapy.

Oral medications

Oral medications are a successful erectile dysfunction treatment for many men. They include:

  • Sildenafil (Viagra)
  • Tadalafil (Adcirca, Cialis)
  • Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)
  • Avanafil (Stendra)

All four medications enhance the effects of nitric oxide — a natural chemical your body produces that relaxes muscles in the penis. This increases blood flow and allows you to get an erection in response to sexual stimulation.

Taking one of these tablets will not automatically produce an erection. Sexual stimulation is needed first to cause the release of nitric oxide from your penile nerves. These medications amplify that signal, allowing some men to function normally. Oral erectile dysfunction medications are not aphrodisiacs, will not cause excitement and are not needed in men who get normal erections.

Penis pumps, surgery and implants

If medications aren't effective or appropriate in your case, your doctor might recommend a different treatment. Other treatments include:

  • Penis pumps. A penis pump (vacuum erection device) is a hollow tube with a hand-powered or battery-powered pump. The tube is placed over your penis, and then the pump is used to suck out the air inside the tube. This creates a vacuum that pulls blood into your penis.

    Once you get an erection, you slip a tension ring around the base of your penis to hold in the blood and keep it firm. You then remove the vacuum device.

    The erection typically lasts long enough for a couple to have sex. You remove the tension ring after intercourse. Bruising of the penis is a possible side effect, and ejaculation will be restricted by the band. Your penis might feel cold to the touch.

    If a penis pump is a good treatment choice for you, your doctor might recommend or prescribe a specific model. That way, you can be sure it suits your needs and that it's made by a reputable manufacturer.

  • Penile implants. This treatment involves surgically placing devices into both sides of the penis. These implants consist of either inflatable or malleable (bendable) rods. Inflatable devices allow you to control when and how long you have an erection. The malleable rods keep your penis firm but bendable.

    Penile implants are usually not recommended until other methods have been tried first. Implants have a high degree of satisfaction among men who have tried and failed more-conservative therapies. As with any surgery, there's a risk of complications, such as infection.

A herb named DAMIANA is an ancient Mayan treatment for ED, it's been used for centuries in India, I've heard about product made of it called Indian Magic Oil. You may search for it. It says good.
