We are all sexual beings, and negating to look after your sexual health can be detrimental to your overall well being. We do not claim to be specialists on male sexual problems, but do have a product that can assist in sexual functioning and discuss some interesting bits and pieces dealing with various aspects.
We have listed some interesting points below, but please note that this information is not meant as medical advice, or as a substitute for medical advice, nor should it be used to treat any disease.
When you suffer from impotence, it is the inability to achieve or sustain an erection, and most men will experience this very frustrating problem at some time. It can either be a once-in-a-lifetime problem, or occur periodically or chronically.
When this happens it can cause anxiety, depression, and a variety of other problems, since it could lead to a man questioning his sexual prowess. Several diseases such as diabetes can cause impotence; yet other factors such as worry, over-work, and fatigue can cause this highly frustrating experience.
Circulation of blood is of prime importance, since if the blood flow to the penis is not 100%, then problems may be experienced with achieving and maintaining an erection.
Nutrition also plays a large role in sexual prowess, and that is where the belief originated regarding oysters and sex - the reason is simple - oysters contain zinc and men need zinc for normal sexual functioning.
Zinc is an ingredient needed for testosterone manufacture and for sperm production. A shortage of zinc can also contribute to mental problems, which may also contribute to a loss of libido. Zinc is also required for proper prostate functioning.
One very important point to keep in mind is to discuss any sexual problem with your partner - this will clear the air, and will also help to lessen any psychological pressure that you may be feeling.
The male’s sexual peak is reached in early adulthood and then declines after that - but - men can stay sexually active until a very advanced age, should they so choose.
Citing age as a contributing factor for sexual dysfunction is mostly used as an excuse not to have sex, since age as such does not mean that you should be sexually inactive.
The size of a penis is a very important point to most men, since some men believe that there is a correlation between size and the level of sexual fulfillment given to their sexual partners. This is not true since sexual technique is really more important than size, although a very small penis, or a penis that is not totally erect could hamper sexual activity.
The normal erect penis can reach 12 inches, with the general size being around 5 - 7 inches.
The size of the flaccid male member (when not aroused) does not indicate the size of the erect penis, and very large flaccid penises do not increase much in size when aroused, but will simply become firmer.
Should there be a problem with circulation a man may find that his penis does not extend to its full potential, and a less satisfying sex life could result. This is where Ageless Herbal Sexual Health Supplement - Vuka Nkuzi can be of assistance since it will also help to ensure proper circulation.
Without testosterone in the body, normal sexual functioning cannot happen, but should this be a problem it is easily treatable by a medical doctor. There is no clear-cut indication that testosterone levels influence the size of the penis.
The correlation between blood testosterone levels and sexual activity is a disputed area, since some studies indicate that increased testosterone levels influence sexual behavior, yet some conflicting studies exist on the amount of testosterone required to perform properly.
Some men might experience an increase in libido when a large quantity of alcohol is consumed, or when certain addictive substances are used, but the downside of this is possible erectile dysfunction.
Addictive substances, and here we include alcohol, may lead to problems with achieving an erection, a decrease in the duration of the erection and an increase in time to ejaculate.
Chronic alcoholism and substance abuse may lead to impotence, since some studies have shown that the liver is stimulated to produce an enzyme which destroys testosterone - the male hormone, and the body does not compensate for this loss. It is therefore suggested that a healthy as possible lifestyle be followed if you wish to maximize your sex life.
Many drugs are prescribed for a variety of problems - from high blood pressure medication to anti-anxiety and anti-depression drugs, as well as medication for ulcers. These may cause loss of libido, impotence, as well as other sexual disturbances which could include breast enlargement, decreased emission etc.
The important point to know when taking this type of medication is that these side effects exist, to enable you to discuss them with your doctor should it adversely impact on your sex life.
Should this happen your doctor could look at substituting the particular drug. If substituting with another type of medication is not possible it is important to know why your sexual functioning is impaired to prevent you doubting yourself.
The use of aphrodisiacs have been used since the beginning of time, and although some of them may help sexual functioning, some also have detrimental side effects.
Spanish fly, poppers etc, may help to some extent, but can carry a host of medical problems for the people using them.
Viagra, the wonder pill made by Pfizer, has changed the face of sexuality, yet it is interesting to note that Viagra does not offer a 100% success rate, and also has a range of undesirable side effects.
Ageless Herbal Sexual Supplement - Vuka Nkuzi is a nutritional supplement, which we believe, helps with sexual functioning since it contains some dietary ingredients important to the sexual health of males.
Premature ejaculation is a very common sexual problem experienced by men, and can sometimes lead to men shying away from sex, yet there are many things that could help with this problem.
Premature ejaculation simply means that the man reaches orgasm too soon, and to overcome this problem the orgasm has to be delayed.
One idea is to have sex more regularly, as long gaps between having sex can accelerate the incidence of premature ejaculation.
Another tip is to have “stop-start” sex, where the male gets stimulated to nearly the point of ejaculation and then stops, gets stimulated again and then stops again - this is helpful in helping control your ejaculation.
Doing some simple pelvic exercises can also greatly assist with this problem. Stand upright and contract your buttock muscles tightly together as if to prevent a bowel movement, and hold the contraction for a count of 5 seconds. Repeat the exercise 10 times - at least twice a day. Increase the repetitions to reach at least 50.
Although the rate of male infertility varies, a reported 5% of males are found to be infertile when problems exist if the female is having a problem falling pregnant. Each ejaculation contains between 140 to 400 million sperms, which need to be motile to be effective.
Male infertility can be caused by a variety of problems from injury to the testes, un-descended testes, prolonged high fever, thyroid, pituitary or adrenal disorders, drug toxicity and many others.
Many male infertility problems are treatable and great successes are recorded. Timing of intercourse can also be helpful to increase the possibility of fertilization and artificial insemination can also be used to increase the ratio.
Resorting to a penile implant can assist physical impairment in cases of urological malformation, spinal injury, diabetes etc. But should only be considered in cases of organic impotence, since the implant may destroy the natural mechanism for achieving an erection.
Should you experience sexual problems, you may want to look at changing your sexual position, since some positions are better for optimum enjoyment and to assist should you be experiencing a problem.
If you are experiencing a problem in maintaining an erection, you could try having sex standing up, since doing it in a standing position can help to increase blood flow to your genitals.
A high fat diet, which can cause plaque build-up in arteries, can impede blood flow to your genitals, which will impact on the type of erection that you achieve, since impeded circulation may prevent your penis from growing totally erect.
To remedy this, re-asses your diet and also check your nutritional intake since there are certain ingredients that can help your sex life.
Some of the nutritional ingredients that you can look at would include
- vitamin b complex
- vitamin e
- ginkgo biloba
- tribulus terrestris
- muira puama
- vitamin c, etc.
Not all men have multiple orgasms, and this depends on many factors. Some men report to have up to 4 per day, while some could reach 2 in one hour.
Multiple orgasms however are not the norm and general good health would play a great part in achieving multiple orgasms.
More and more males rely on vasectomies to help with family planning, and this is a relatively simple procedure where the sperm duct is closed off. Since there may be some residual sperm in the duct after the operation a supplementary contraceptive method should be used for at least four to six weeks after the operation.
This sterilization method does not affect sexual potency, and the male hormone testosterone is in no way affected by a vasectomy. Sterilization should not be confused with impotence, although some men might mistakenly equate the ability to father a child with virility.
After the operation, the testes still form sperm, which cannot be ejaculated but is re-absorbed in the body. The appearance and quantity of the semen will remain basically unchanged - but will not contain sperm.
Although Aids has changed the way that most people feel about casual sex, venereal diseases like gonorrhea and syphilis are still around, and can seriously impact on your health.
Casual sex should never be an option, but if practiced, great care should be taken not to contract any venereal disease, or if picked up should be treated immediately.
- If untreated, syphilis can be deadly since it has the modus operandi of symptoms disappearing after the initial infection, yet it still is in the body, causing damage to a variety of organs from the brain to the eyes etc.
- The symptoms of syphilis are firstly a sore developing on the genitals in the early stages - about three to six weeks after contact - followed by a body rash, sore throat and other non-specific symptoms about three weeks thereafter. Should these symptoms be left untreated they will disappear, yet the organism will quietly undermine various organs for many years until it does lethal damage.
- This sexually transmitted disease manifests itself as a white discharge from the penis accompanied by either normal or burning urination after about three to seven days after infestation. Should this not be treated, it can affect the prostate and cause infertility.
- With gonorrhea, treatment should be affected promptly and correctly, as non-completed treatment, as well as repeated treatment can cause resistance to treatment in general.
