The 9 health symptoms men should NEVER ignore, from problems in the bedroom to heavy drinking and needing the loo in the night…

From blood in the urine to ‘man boobs’, there are a host of signs that things aren’t quite right in the male body. And sometimes seemingly everyday symptoms can be a sign of a more serious disease.

  • There are ‘every day’ or little known symptoms of male health problems
  • For example, heavy drinking could be how depression manifests in men
  • And problems getting an erection are an early sign of heart disease
  • Lack of smell can signal low levels of male hormones, affecting fertility

Five ‘erection killers’ you can change

The easy availability and effectiveness of prescriptions to treat erectile dysfunction (eg. Viagra, Cialis, Levitra) lead some men to immediately seek medications when they have difficulty getting and maintaining an erection. Unfortunately, not many men have good knowledge of things that they can do themselves to both prevent and treat erectile dysfunction (ED). ... read more 

Essential facts all men should know about ED drugs
Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects nearly every man at some point in his life. Whether it happens only occasionally or has become a chronic problem (or somewhere in between), men frequently turn to erectile dysfunction drugs. While the “little blue pill” and its cousins usually come to mind first, there are other medications for erectile dysfunction that are not taken orally. It’s good to have choices; and fortunately, you do.

What’s the first thing you should do if you are experiencing erectile dysfunction? What do you know about the different erectile dysfunction drugs? What side effects can you expect? How effective are these … read more

Coffee May Perk Up More Than Men’s Brains: It Could Stave Off Erectile Dysfunction

According to a new study, caffeine intake is linked to reduced odds of having erectile dysfunction (ED) in men who drink the equivalent of two to three cups of coffee per day. Among the lifestyle factors that are known to put a man at risk of ED – poor diet, physical inactivity, smoking, and alcohol consumptions – caffeine has not been of the biggest candidates. But the new study suggests that like other areas of physical and mental health, ED may be another beneficiary of caffeine’s fascinating benefits.

Men with diabetes did not experience the same protective effects from caffeine, possibly because diabetes brings with it its own set of vascular problems.

But experts don’t often recommend picking up a new habit (especially with an addictive substance) if a person has gone his whole life without it. It’s probably worth talking with your doctor if you’re considering starting a coffee habit.

Does Walking Make you Stiff?
If you have a heart attack today, you’ve a better chance of walking out of hospital than ever before. And new stents and new drugs – and a better understanding of how to use them – have combined to increase your chances of still being alive 5 years after your first attack to better than four in five.

All this does presuppose you actually make it to hospital. The first few minutes of a heart attack are pretty dicey, and still the best way to have a long and healthy life is to avoid a heart attack in the first place. … read on

 

SEXUALITY MATTERS: Opening up a dialogue about erectile dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects a wide range of men. In fact, research shows that 20 percent of men in all age groups and 40 percent of older men are affected with erectile dysfunction. It is a disorder shrouded with taboos and anxiety that often impacts men’s quality-of-life. This often prevents men from discussing the disorder and seeking treatment.

Despite the large numbers of men struggling with ED and the availability of effective pharmacological interventions, men are often reluctant to seek treatment primarily because they believe that their primary care physician will not take them seriously.
According to research studies, a strong connection has been found between erectile function and the quality of life and partnership for men. Therefore, if a man has difficulty with maintaining an erection, this can lead to relationship issues, particularly communication problems, and he may gradually lose closeness with his partner.
So, if your partner has erectile dysfunction, please be sensitive to his problem and begin a discussion with him to seek treatment.  Read more ...

6 Exercises Every Man Should Do To Improve His Sex Life
The key to giving your sex life an added boost is as simple as hitting the gym. Exercise increases energy, tones your muscles, burns fat and improves your mood and self-image. But for more reasons than you may know, exercise can also improve your sex life. For instance, research shows that if you burn as little as 200 additional calories a day, you can lower your risk of erectile dysfunction.

7 tips to boost male stamina in the bedroom

In the minds of many men, sexual stamina is synonymous with staying power and sexual performance rolled into one. Others realize that placing a lot of emphasis on stamina can result in feelings of anxiety and stress, which work against sexual satisfaction. A better appreciation and understanding of sexual stamina may benefit all men and their partners and bring some balance to the discussion, so here are seven tips to get you started.

 

Have Heart Disease? Feel Confident Resuming Sexual Activity!

The majority of people diagnosed with heart disease after a heart attack or heart surgery have very real concerns about returning to sexual activity. This issue often gets buried in a long list of questions for the doctor or is difficult to bring up.

The good news is that fitness can improve your motivation and confidence to resume your sex life, and the cardiovascular risks surrounding sexual activity and heart disease are comparatively low.

With increasing research, the message is becoming clear: For most people with uncomplicated heart disease, the risk of angina, arrhythmia or death is relatively low during sexual activity … (continue reading)

10 Things That Can Deflate Your Erection

What happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom.  Erectile Dysfunction is one of those topics considered taboo.  Now, let’s talk about it in the open.  There are factors that affects erectile dysfunction, and this time, all secrets are out.

  1. Depression – sexual excitement starts in the brain. Since the brain is an erogenous zone, depression can seriously affect your performance for the night (or day).  Medication for depression can have an adverse effect on your sex life: Sex drive, difficulty in having an erection, and delay in orgasm.
  2. Alcohol – this depends on the magnitude of alcohol … (continue reading)


Why Can't Guys Get Hard Sometimes? 9 Reasons Why Men Can't Get It Up

Most of us are raised to believe that men are ravenous sex-beasts, eternally horny and only pretending to be a part of polite society so that they can find some new crevice to jam their Jeremy Irons into. So the first time we cross paths (and genitals) with a guy who can’t get an erection, many of us immediately panic and assume that the problem must be us. We must be profoundly unsexy. After all, what could else possibly stop these hormone-addled maniacs from getting an erection? 

As it turns out, there are actually tons of things that can keep guys from getting an erection that have nothing to do with you. And while erectile issues are often seen as an older man’s problem, in reality, one quarter of men seeking medical treatment for erectile difficulties are under 40.

What To Do If Your Man Has Erectile Dysfunction
There is a stereotype that the male libido is always in overdrive. A man can be tall, dark and handsome on the outside but have issues on the inside that can be a total deal breaker. Most men take pride in knowing that they can satisfy their woman on a regular basis, but there are times that they just can’t seem to “rise” to the occasion. Get the hint? Every sexually active woman’s been there at least once.

Contrary to popular belief, erectile dysfunction (ED) is not just an older man’s problem.  One in 10 men will suffer from ED at some point in their life. So, what exactly should you do when your man is exhibiting signs? …  read more

Why You Should Be Concerned About His Erectile Dysfunction

While erectile dysfunction has a huge impact on your sex life, it could be an indicator of a bigger issue for your man.

When you think of erectile dysfunction (ED), there are two assumptions that often come to mind: first, that ED only happens to old men and, second, that your sex life or appearance is to blame. We’re here to put both of these myths to rest.

Recent research found that one in four men seeking help for erectile dysfunction is younger than 40. What’s more, 50 percent of men over 50 are struggling with some variation of ED.  Clearly, this is a common issue—so what’s causing the lack of lust below the belt? Read more ...

Erectile Dysfunction: Best Options Beyond Medication, Lifestyle Changes

Most men who experience erectile dysfunction (ED) can achieve stimulation through oral medications like Viagra®, Levitra® and Cialis®. Lifestyle changes can also help remedy the problem. They may quit smoking or lose weight, or undergo psychotherapy.

While these are the most common methods, they may not work for everyone.  There are a few other options, each with its own pros and cons.

Why You May Be Having Pain in Your Penis
Penis pain involves any pain or discomfort, internal or external, of the penis.  If you’re experiencing aches and pains in the penis, whether during sexual intercourse or at other times, you should schedule a trip to your doctor or a urologist if symptoms persist or are severe.

Chief among the causes of penis pain is Peyronie’s disease, an abnormal curvature of the penis usually caused by scar tissue in the tunica albuginea — the strength layer of the penis. Peyronie’s can interfere with intercourse either by making it painful or by leading to erectile dysfunction.  About one in 20 men develop Peyronie’s at some point in their lives.

Other issues may cause penis pain.  Read more ...

Erectile dysfunction a common problem
Many believe that women lose their libido at menopause and go off sex for life. Less is said about the large number of older men who begin to suffer erectile difficulties. Prostate problems are common, and some treatments can leave a man with no erection. Unfortunately, men tend to locate their masculinity, potency, and strength in their erect penis. It is not merely a tool required for a man to penetrate and mate with a woman. Psychologically, many men feel ashamed and humiliated by erectile dysfunction. It is this loss of self-image and esteem that impacts most destructively on their ability to give and receive sexual pleasure through an intimate encounter with a woman.  Read more …

Dull sex life? 30 minutes of daily exercise could be the cure

Did you know there’s an epidemic of low libido, lack of sexual mojo and high sexual dysfunction–and it’s sweeping the Western world?

Do you want to know one of the main reasons why? Lack of exercise

Men, that spare tire warns erectile dysfunction (ED) is on the way; the jellyroll means clogged capillaries in the penis. And without ready blood flow to those capillaries, that wood’s no good.

But it’s not just guys; women pay penalties for belly fat, too. For one thing, carrying excess weight hurts heterosexual women, more than straight men, when they’re seeking a partner. That’s because men routinely approach … read more

5 Alternatives to Viagra Worth Trying

The little blue pill is only one way to get back to passionate pursuits.

When the action isn’t happening below the belt, guys are surprisingly hesitant to seek help: Only one-quarter of men diagnosed with erectile dysfunction (ED) actually seek treatment for the problem, according to a study.  That means 75 percent of guys with ED aren’t taking anything for their performance issues.  “There’s no question that we have effective treatments — there are pills, pellets, shots, and there’s surgery. And they are nearly 100 percent effective in total.” ... read more

Overworked and undersexed: Job stress can affect your libido — and that’s bad news for your health
So how does job strain affect one’s sex life? First, let’s recognize that loss of libido and erectile dysfunction are very common, and become more prevalent as we get older. In varying degrees of severity, sexual dysfunction will afflict close to 20% of middle-aged men by their fifth decade.

The increasing intensity of our careers, with technology that keeps us just one click away from checking in on work, also plays a role. One psychological study examining the link between job stress and sex demonstrated that longer working hours and “the pressure to do more in less time” had a significant … continue reading

What to Do When Diabetes Affects Your Sex Life

Half of all men with diabetes have erectile dysfunction
Men living with diabetes have enough on their plate. They need to monitor their blood glucose level, blood pressure and, most likely, several medications. If this is you, and you’re experiencing problems in your sex life, there’s a good chance you’re  feeling anxious, frustrated and depressed.

You may know that erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or maintain an erection. But did you know that ED is common among men who have diabetes? This condition can stem from problems caused by poor long-term blood sugar control, which damages nerves and blood vessels. ED also can be linked to other … (continue reading)

For Many Men, Impotence Is Treatable Without Drugs
A new study reminds men with erectile dysfunction that there's help out there that doesn't require a prescription: diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes.

Losing weight, eating better, getting more active, drinking less alcohol and getting better sleep can all help reverse problems that contribute to impotence, according to a new study published recently in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Erectile dysfunction and low sexual desire are often linked to the development of heart disease. The researchers discovered that a large proportion of men were able to naturally overcome erectile dysfunction with heart-healthy changes -- no pharmaceutical help necessary.

What's more, focusing on lifestyle change helps ensure an overall healthier and longer life, the researchers added.

Trouble in the bedroom, men? Try making these lifestyle changes first

ED is a highly prevalent condition among men as they age and has a significant negative impact on not only the quality of life of the man, but their partner as well. As always, we initially look for the easy answers like taking a pill (Viagra, for example) but prevention is a much a wiser method not only for your penis but for your heart too!

If Sexual Dysfunction Were a Virus, "It'd Be Pandemic": Expert

After more than 30 years of marriage, Ernie and Cynthia Dillard thought their sex life was over.

“I never thought that ED (erectile dysfunction) was something I would have to deal with,” Ernie Dillard said. “I felt like I was not meeting my responsibilities as a husband, as a man. Something’s wrong, you’re getting too old; you can’t have sex anymore. All the negative things popped up.”

Cynthia Dillard thought it was her fault.

“My first reaction was, ‘It’s me. I guess I’m not sexy enough anymore,’ and he kept saying no, but he didn’t want to talk about it either,” Cynthia Dillard said.

Their experience is common, according to sexual health expert ... (read on)

 

Sex Ed: Pumped Up Prostates
Before their debut on thousands of seedy websites, negative pressure vacuum pumps had the noble duty of giving life to the limp. The transparent tubular mechanisms drew blood into penis capillaries, creating otherwise impossible erections for men with chronic diabetes or circulatory disorders.

Surviving prostate cancer is certainly grounds for celebration, but, sadly, along with the loss of the prostate can come the inability to produce and maintain an erection. Because it is virtually impossible to perform radical prostatectomy surgery without disturbing nerves that control the erection process, erectile dysfunction (ED) is an almost guaranteed by product of the procedure.

This is insult to injury for those men who probably experienced some degree of ED due to the cancer in the first place. The good news is, with the help of vacuum therapy, the prostateless masses may not have to endure a flaccid future. A growing number of studies indicate that vacuum therapy has an important role to play in prostate surgery recovery.

New hope for women suffering from sexual dysfunction?
For males, sexual dysfunction is considered a mechanical or plumbing issue that can be easily treated. Men who are diagnosed with erectile dysfunction/sexual dysfunction can take Viagra with approval from their physician, and may have overall improved blood flow to genitalia.

With women, the mechanics are quite different. A diagnosis of hypoactive sexual drive disorder (HSDD), means that the woman’s libido isn’t there or she has difficulty with arousal, and it’s much more complex than the male form of the condition.

Roughly 33 percent women complain of low libido and symptoms can include:
A loss of interest in sex
Pain during intercourse
Sexual dissatisfaction: Some people with signs of HSDD find sex aversive, traumatic, painful, or boring

Keeping It Up: The Science of Erections
For many men, getting an erection is as simple as breathing. But it's an incredibly complex process involving a precise sequence of psychological and physiological events that can easily go wrong. 

Erectile dysfunction is defined as the inability to get or keep an erection firm enough to have satisfactory sexual intercourse, however you define that. It can describe a complete or inconsistent inability to achieve an erection, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. 

Here's how erections work — and how science is helping millions of men keep it up

 

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction occurs when a man cannot have an erection for enough time to have sex, or other sexual activity.  ED manifests as either:

  • an ability to achieve erection, but inability to control ejaculation
  • an inability to maintain erections
  • an occasional ability to achieve erection
  • total inability to achieve erection

Erectile dysfunction: A red flag for some medical conditions

Erectile dysfunction isn’t just about sex. It shouldn’t be ignored, experts say.

“New onset of erection problems is often an early sign of cardiovascular disease,” says urologist Daniel Shoskes, MD. “Erectile dysfunction can signal compromised blood flow in other parts of the body.”

It can also be a sign of other medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and low testosterone.

Of course, besides medical conditions, there are other possible causes for ED:

Can’t get an erection? You might have heart disease
Erectile dysfunction is a common but little-known warning sign for heart attacks and strokes. Seeking help early could save your life, as one man found out.

As a keen swimmer and golfer, 60-year-old Michael saw no reason to worry about his heart. So when an annual health check showed his right coronary artery was dangerously blocked, he was taken aback.

“I had an angiogram on a Monday. The surgeon came over straight away and told me they’d found a 99% blockage, and would be operating on my heart that Thursday,” he says. “It came as a shock as I’m pretty healthy, and …

Erectile dysfunction may be more than just a problem in bed

Erection problems are common but they can be embarrassing for men to discuss with partners and doctors.

The sales of erection drugs on the internet or billboard advertising are boosted by keeping erectile problems in the dark. They reinforce the idea that it’s an embarrassing problem that can be fixed without seeking help from doctors.

But this means men are missing out on an opportunity to improve their health.

Many men will be surprised to learn that erectile dysfunction affects about one in five men over the age of 40 and two in three men over 70. There’s also increasing research evidence linking erectile dysfunction with other general health problems, such as diabetes and heart disease.

And it’s becoming clearer that erectile dysfunction can be an early warning sign of chronic health conditions, but many men and some doctors still don’t appreciate this.

Why ED was the Best Thing to Happen to My Intimacy

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the best thing to happen to me and my intimacy. There, I said it. Actually, I say it a lot. On radio, TV, print, online and occasionally gatherings (it’s a great way to quiet a room down if things get rowdy). If some guy had made the same claim to me just two years ago, I would have thought he was either insane or just messing with me. Being fully impotent (i.e. can’t get it up to save my life, even with the pills) is not something most men would be willing to discuss. Or for that matter, even comfortable listening to men talk about. The way some men react, you would think that my ‘condition’ is contagious.

However, my impotence is just a context, a gateway if you will, to discoveries about extraordinary intimacy that I would have never experienced on my own otherwise. It served as the most unlikely of shepherds guiding my female partner and me to levels of emotional and physical intimacy most normally functioning couples can barely imagine. In order to fully appreciate how we arrived at such a blissful place, it helps to see the state I was in prior to this unlikely transformation.

Erectile dysfunction: Viagra and other oral medications
Viagra, Levitra or Cialis is often the first oral medication tried for erectile dysfunction. For most men who have trouble keeping an erection firm enough for sex (erectile dysfunction), these medications work well and cause few side effects.

Sildenafil (Viagra), vardenafil (Levitra or Staxyn) and tadalafil (Cialis) are all medications that reverse erectile dysfunction by increasing nitric oxide, a chemical naturally produced by your body. Nitric oxide opens and relaxes blood vessels in the penis, helping you get and keep an erection. These erectile dysfunction medications don't increase your sex drive and only cause erections when you are sexually stimulated.

Not all men can safely take erectile dysfunction medications. They can be dangerous if you have certain health problems or you're taking particular medications.

Fighting Erectile Dysfunction with a Stroll Around the Block
With all of the commercials out there about “low T” and magic blue pills, it would be easy to think that erectile dysfunction (ED) is curable only by using plenty of meds. The reality for most men is something quite different. Many of the primary causes of Erectile Dysfunction are preventable. Even better, many of these causes have a treatment method in common with a highly effective Erectile Dysfunction treatment: exercise.

The link between aging and a decreased sex drive is relatively well-known and not entirely unexpected. When low libido turns into genuine Erectile Dysfunction, however, it can’t usually be attributed entirely to …Continue Reading

Docs say sex after 60 enhances life, despite the obstacles
Many older people experience problems having sex and therefore avoid it. Even though this lack of intimacy lessens the quality of their lives, they are reluctant to talk about the subject, even with their doctor.

But a group of more than 50 people did at least want to hear about it at a recent presentation at The Willows, a retirement community in Worcester.

Dr. Randall S. Morse and Dr. Catherine DuBeau of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and UMass Memorial Medical Center gave a talk called “Sex After 60: Yes, You Can,” a frank, informative program that touched on basic physiology, sexual problems common to older people and possible solutions.

“Being interested in sex is totally normal,” DuBeau told the group. “Sex is a normal part of life throughout the life span.”

Quit Smoking to Help Fight Impotence
Smoking has been linked to erectile dysfunction for many years. A study has added further proof that this is the case.

The study in Hong Kong has revealed that smokers enjoyed a better sex life after quitting the habit.

The research team looked at around 700 smokers, aged between 30 and 50, who were suffering from erectile dysfunction.

They found that 53.8 of the subjects who quit smoking reported an overall improvement in their erection problems. This was recorded within …Continue Reading

Causes of erectile dysfunction
Testosterone plays an important role in keeping your mind sharp and your body healthy-from the heart to muscles and bones to erectile dysfunction (ED). If you’re middle-aged, your body’s testosterone levels have already begun to decline.

Testosterone is a hormone that is produced primarily in the testicles. It is essential in the development of masculine characteristics, muscle strength, fat distribution and sex drive. Testosterone peaks during adolescence and as you get older; your testosterone level gradually declines — typically about 1 per cent a year.

Researchers have found low testosterone contributes to weight gain and obesity, elevated harmful blood fats, and insulin Continue Reading

What’s causing my erectile dysfunction?
Testosterone plays an important role in keeping your mind sharp and your body healthy—from the heart to muscles and bones to erectile dysfunction (ED). If you’re middle-aged, your body’s testosterone levels have already begun to decline.

Testosterone is a hormone that is produced primarily in the testicles. It is essential in the development of masculine characteristics, muscle strength, fat distribution and sex drive. Testosterone peaks during adolescence and as you get older, your testosterone level gradually declines — typically about 1 per cent a year.

Researchers have found low testosterone contributes to weight gain and obesity, elevated harmful blood fats, and insulin resistance – each of which is a risk factor for the development heart disease, type 2 diabetes and ED.

Heart health concerns with testosterone include elevated cholesterol and blood pressure, thus increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. According to a UK-based study, having high testosterone isn’t what makes men susceptible to heart issues—it’s having too little.

Weight gain, diabetes and alcohol use can lead to fat forming around the mid-section — this contributes to the production of the female hormone oestrogen that counteracts the function of testosterone.

“Other men produce testosterone but may be resistant to it, just like diabetics are resistant to insulin,” says Dr Malcolm Carruthers, founder of The Centre for Men’s Health in London.

Low testosterone has also been linked to changes in sexual function. This may include reduced sexual desire, fewer spontaneous erections, and infertility. Many men blame their age or their relationship for problems with their sex lives, but it could be due to a hormonal imbalance.  Continue reading ...

What To Do When THIS Awkward Bedroom Problem Arises
Picture this: You’re finishing up a hot date. Your chemistry with this guy has been off the charts all night, and you can’t wait to get him back to your bed. Finally, you’re in your room and all over each other. The lights dim, the clothes come off — and your man’s penis is completely soft. Your first thought? “What did I do wrong?!”

Whether this guy is someone you’re casually dating or you’ve been with for years, when something goes amiss on his end — a flaccid penis or an early ejaculation — we women tend to take the blame. And, chances are, he’s not giving you any clues as to why it’s happening. Relax, ladies, because if he were to give you an accurate explanation of what’s up (or not so up) down below, it would probably start with, “It’s not you, it’s me.”

When it comes to erectile dysfunction or the inability to hold an erection, the culprit may be a few too many drinks or cigarettes, but it’s more likely something going on in his head. “Erectile dysfunction happens to some degree with all men,” says Laurence Levine MD, professor of urology at Rush University Medical Center. “There are a number of distractions that can interfere with arousal mechanisms, like having a tough day at work or having a recent argument.” And, don’t underestimate the fact the he may be a little too attracted to you.  Read more

Erection problems not just a bedroom issue
It's not a popular conversation topic among men – or even one most men will raise with their partner – but research shows erectile dysfunction has affected 61 per cent of Australian men over the age of 45.

Having an occasional problem getting or keeping an erection is normal. But when it happens often and it's severe – so you can't have sex with penetration – it's called erectile dysfunction.

But erection issues aren't only a problem in the bedroom, there is now strong evidence they are "the canary in the trousers" – a warning sign you may have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes or damaged arteries that may increase your risk of heart attacks.

Erectile dysfunction ‘a disease of the blood vessels’
The number of young men suffering from erectile dysfunction is higher than once thought.  According to new research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, one fourth of men seeking help for ED are under the age of 40, and half of those reported severe ED.

“There are several things that need to happen for a man to have an erection,” said Dr. Johnnie Cook, a family physician at Intermountain Healthcare in Layton. “The nerves to the penis must be functioning properly, the blood circulation in the penis must be adequate, the veins must be able to trap and keep the blood inside the penis, there must be stimulus from the brain.”

If there is something interfering with any or all of these conditions, Cook said, a full erection will not occur.

De-Stress for Better Sex
Commercials featuring smiling grey-hairs cruising around in mid-life-crisis convertibles have pretty much put the "old guy" stamp on erectile dysfunction (ED). But it isn't just older guys having problems getting it up. A new study found that one in four men seeking help for erectile dysfunction is under 40 and nearly half of young guys with ED have a severe form. These findings show that sexual-performance problems are far more common among the under-40 set than doctors previously thought.  But here's what's really interesting (read on)

Get fit for the bedroom - Lower risk of ED
Exercise not only delivers a number of amazing health benefits - it can also improve your sex life.

The biggest boost exercise can give to your sex life is to lower your risk of erectile dysfunction, says Jorge Chavarro, MD, of the Harvard School of Public Health. “Exercise that helps open the arteries to benefit your heart will also increase blood flow to the penis,” he says.

Weight Loss Found To Improve Sexual Health
Scientists and nutritionists have recently released information that suggests losing weight is the most effective method of solving and correcting many sexual conditions, including erectile dysfunction. It has been known for centuries that carrying around extra pounds can be detrimental to a person’s long-term health and can greatly limit their general mobility, but experts are now delving into possible causes for a bevy of common sexual health issues that have come into focus in the past decade.

They have discovered that following a regular workout regimen is the most effective way to reverse sexual dysfunctions that are commonly caused by blood circulation issues. By re-designing the body to be more effective from within, problems are solved internally and naturally. This is essentially the opposite approach of pharmaceuticals, which aim to treat the symptoms of a problem instead of its cause.

Sex has been idealised so much in movies and magazines that we'd be forgiven for thinking that we're the only people in the world who encounter a few problems in the bedroom department.  As the realistic world of painful sex, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation attests, sex isn't always about lacy lingerie, sheet-grabbing pleasure and perfectly timed orgasms.

How to Talk About Erectile DysfunctionTogether
Dear Mr. Manners: My husband seems to be suffering from erectile dysfunction but I don’t really know how to broach the topic – or even if I should. What’s the best thing to do or say? Help, please! – A lonely wife

A: First of all, know that your husband is hardly alone; millions and millions of American men are affected by what’s called erectile dysfunction (ED), not to mention the less direct effects this condition can have on spouses, like you. So, I’m glad you reached out – especially because all the TV advertisements for ED could lead you to think that popping a pill is the simple answer to fire up your tiger’s tiger.

As you may know, ED is an honest-to-god-real-life medical condition, defined by the inability to achieve or sustain an erection long enough for sexual intercourse. It can be brought about by depression, stress, anxiety or aging. However, its most frequent cause is undiagnosed conditions like high cholesterol, diabetes, even early heart disease — as well as the medications often used to combat these ailments (notably high blood pressure drugs). I tell you this for two reasons: Why should there be such a stigma for a medical condition? And second, many women tend to see impotence as a sexual or relationship issue, blaming themselves if not their partners. That’s not so helpful. (continue reading)
