Diabetes mellitus: Erectile dysfunction tends to develop 10-15 years earlier in diabetic men than among nondiabetic men. In a population study of men with type I diabetes for more than 10 years, erectile dysfunction was reported by 55% of men 50-60 years of age. The increased risk of erectile dysfunction among men with diabetes mellitus may be due to the earlier onset and greater severity of atherosclerosis that narrows the arteries and thereby reduces the delivery of blood to the penis. When insufficient blood is delivered to the penis, it is not possible to achieve an erection. Diabetes mellitus also causes erectile dysfunction by damaging both sensory and autonomic nerves, a condition called diabetic neuropathy. Smoking cigarettes, obesity, poor control of blood glucose levels, and having diabetes mellitus for a long time further increase the risk of erectile dysfunction in diabetes. In addition to atherosclerosis and/or neuropathy causing ED in diabetes, many men with diabetes also develop a myopathy (muscle disease) as their cause of ED in which the compliance of the muscles in the corpora cavernosa is decreased, and clinically this presents as an inability to maintain the erection.

How Is Male Sexual Dysfunction Treated? Many cases of sexual dysfunction can be corrected by treating the underlying physical or psychological problems. Treatment strategies may include the following: Mechanical aids: Aids such as vacuum devices and penile implants may help men with erectile dysfunction. In men 40 years of age or older, a breast examination, digital examination of the prostate, and a PSA level (prostate specific antigen) blood test should be done to exclude breast and prostate cancer before starting testosterone treatment since testosterone can aggravate breast and prostate cancers. Patients who have breast and prostate cancers or are suspected of having them should not use testosterone. Melanocortin receptor agonists are a new set of medications being developed in the field of erectile dysfunction. Their action is on the nervous system rather than the vascular system. PT-141 is a nasal preparation which appears to be effective alone or in combination with PDE5 inhibitors. The main side effects include flushing and nausea. These drugs are currently not approved for commercial use.

Wiley hand-painted the cast resin dolls she used to illustrate “Little Red Riding Hood.” “Red Riding Hood” is an 11-inch doll with bendable arms and hand-painted costume. “Wolf” is a 13-inch doll with faux fur, bendable arms and head, and hand-painted costume. Both dolls are available in limited editions of 200 priced at 0.

Artist and dollmaker Nancy Wiley admits to having very focused goals, even from a very young age. “I was very single minded from the time I was little,” she said. “Drawing and making things was all I did.”

 

But as she pursued an education in illustration (she graduated from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design), she always saw herself becoming a children’s book illustrator. “I really love fairy tales and children’s literature,” said Wiley, 48. She especially admired the work of illustrators Arthur Rackham and Maurice Sendak.

 

“My artistic journey has certainly followed a circuitous route,” Wiley added, who lives in Canandaiga, N.Y., with her husband and two children. “I was sidetracked — it was a good sidetracking — from my initial interest in children’s illustration when I apprenticed after school with my brother, William Wiley [the late doll artist]. He was really passionate about making dolls. Bill encouraged me to try ‘his’ medium, and I was captivated. A whole world opened up to me. I hadn’t realized how artistic you could be.”

 

Painterly Creations

Wiley’s love of illustration isn’t lost on her dolls — in fact, her two most recent projects have seamlessly married her interest in both fairy tales and dollmaking. In 2009 she merged those interests when she created hand-painted, limited-edition dolls based on the characters in Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” then photographed them to illustrate her own hardcover edition of Carroll’s book.

 

“I just really wanted to try the illustration,” she recalled. “Since I had been doing the dolls for 20 years, I thought I’d combine the two.”  Wiley said the 88-page “Alice” book — featuring handmade dolls of Alice, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, the Duchess, the Cheshire Cat and the White Rabbit — took about a year to complete (you can watch a video of Wiley creating her book illustrations at www.wonderlandbook.com/illustrations.html and in this issue’s digital edition).

 

“When I photographed my work to serve as illustrations for [the Alice book], I felt I had come full circle,” Wiley said. After her success with that book and doll collection, Wiley’s work took a Grimm turn, as she created dolls and an accompanying book based on the Brothers Grimm tale “Little Red Riding Hood.”  “I wanted to do a simpler one for the second story,” she said.

 

Her research began last summer, when she visited the Adirondacks and took pictures of forest scenes — including shots of her 6-year-old daughter, Elizabeth, roaming the woods in a red hooded sweatshirt. “Red Riding Hood” features the heroine as an 11-inch hand-painted cast resin doll. The daunting “Wolf,” with his menacing eyes, is made in the same medium and measures 13 inches. In Wiley’s book, the dolls are photographed against backdrops to set the scenes. “I make the characters first, then I paint a backdrop on canvas. This particular story was supposed to look like a stage play,” Wiley said. Wiley published both children’s books herself, with computer design assistance from Florida doll artist Chris Chomick.

 

Next up for Wiley, a longtime member of the National Institute of American Doll Artists (NIADA), is her interpretation of Charles Perrault’s tale “Cinderella” — probably for 2013. “I want it to be very over-the-top,” she said, adding that she’s particularly interested in designing a fabulous coach for Cinderella. Down the road, Wiley said, she’d love to do more book-related projects, maybe even an original tale. “I’m not ready yet,” she concluded.

Of Note …

Among Nancy Wiley’s buzzworthy clientele are novelist Anne Rice and actors Ray Liotta, Andy Garcia, and Demi Moore. In fact, Moore was so taken with Wiley’s work that in 1996, she tapped Wiley to design the costume she wore on the cover of the now-defunct magazine “George.” You can see the image by searching Google images for “Demi Moore and George magazine.”

 

Wiley will also present a solo show at the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, N.Y., displaying her “Red Riding Hood” book layout as well as the dolls. The show will run from mid-October to January 2013. For more information, visit www.museumofplay.org.
