Male Sexual Health Tips

The penis is truly a remarkable organ. It is the only organ that we depend on to alter its shape, size, and constitution in a matter of nanoseconds. We ask a lot of the penis, but we rarely spend any time caring for its wellbeing. We just assume that it will continue to perform for us. Unfortunately, the penis’ ability to do its job is impacted by many health factors and – without care – will become less effective with each passing decade.
The good news is that you can maintain male sexual health  and a healthy functioning penis throughout your entire life. With a little work – you can even improve your sexual health and performance.

Tips For Healthy Male Sexual Function

1. Maintain a Healthy Weight

Obesity literally steals your manhood and reduces testosterone levels in the body. Abdominal fat converts your male hormone testosterone to the female hormone estrogen. You are also more likely to have fatty plaque deposits, which clog up your blood vessels, including the artery to the penis –  making it harder to obtain and maintain a good-quality erection.

2. Eat Smart

Wholesome and natural foods prevent the build-up of harmful plaque deposits within your blood vessels that compromises blood flow to the penis. Poor dietary choices with meals that are calorie laden and nutritionally empty, create clogged arteries and greatly impact sexual function.

3. Minimize Stress

Stress causes the release of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline narrows blood vessels, which negatively impacts erections. If you ever have experienced “performance anxiety” it was because of adrenaline release in response to nervousness. Excessive cortisol secretion, which helps drives your appetite, causes the accumulation of the unhealthy belly fat.

4. Eliminate Tobacco

In addition to causing cancer, tobacco narrows your blood vessels, impairs blood flow, decreases the supply of oxygen, and also promotes inflammation, compromising every organ in your body.

5. Consume Alcohol in Moderation

In small amounts, alcohol can alleviate anxiety and act as a vasodilator (increases blood flow) and can actually improve erectile function, but in large amounts it can be a major risk factor for erectile dysfunction.

6. Sleep Well

Sleeping has a vitally important restorative function as your brain and body requires this important down time. Sleep deprivation causes a disruption in endocrine, metabolic, and immune function, resulting in decreased levels of leptin (your appetite suppressant), increased ghrelin levels (your appetite stimulant), increased cortisol, and increased glucose levels (higher amounts of sugar in the bloodstream). If you are exhausted, your penis is going to be weary as well.

7. Exercise Regularly

Exercise has a remarkable effect on sexual function. It reduces stress, improves mood, prevents fatigue, and increases energy. Long term it will reduce your risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, some cancers, osteoporosis, chronic medical problems, and physical disability. Exercise makes your heart a better and stronger pump, your blood vessels more elastic, and your muscles better able at using oxygen. Exercises that work out the muscles involved in sex – the core muscles, the external rotators of the hip, and the all important pelvic floor muscles will improve your performance.

8. Strengthen Your Pelvic Floor Muscles

The pelvic floor muscles play a vital role with respect to both erections and ejaculation. When you are sexually stimulated, the pelvic floor muscles activate and engage to maintain penile rigidity and a skyward angling erection. These muscles are not only responsible for getting the stimulated penis from a tumescent state (plump with blood) to a state of bone like rigidity, but also for maintaining that rigid state and for being the “motor” of ejaculation. Numerous scientific studies have documented the benefits of pelvic exercises, known as “Kegels,” in the management of erectile dysfunction.

9. Stay Sexually Active

Use your penis. You can help keep it in good shape by using it regularly. Scientific studies have clearly demonstrated that men who are more sexually active tend to have fewer problems with erectile dysfunction as they age.

10. Maintain a Healthy Relationship

It takes two to tango, so relationship harmony factors strongly into good sexual functioning just as discord and interpersonal issues can profoundly contribute to ED. The mind-body connection is of immense importance to sexual function.

I am passionate about men's sexual health and my goal is to get more men talking about the subject. Generally speaking, men get all of the drugs and none of the therapy, while women get all of the therapy and none of the drugs. For men, there are so few resources, and very few people to talk to. I believe this is an incredibly important topic and one that needs greater national discussion. My goal is to get more men connected to their sexual health through exercise - - that is why we created The Private Gym for Men.

I'd add, stay away from eating processed foods and GMO's. They are the worst substances you can put in your body and can have a catastrophic affect on your sex life. \

I'm 46 and healthy in every way but I feel bombarded by media that tells me that I'm going to fall apart at 50. The lead image in this post is, pardon the pun, ridiculous! Please stop making universal statements based on age or anything else. Thank you.
