Obesity - Did you know that fat in a man's pubic region actually decreases the available length of his penis? That's right! Most of the penis lies rooted within the abdominal fat, with only a small stub protruding. Losing 35 pounds of excess weight can translate to an extra inch of penis! Excess fat also blocks your arteries and ruins your ability to become erect. If you are overweight, work to lose that excess body fat!
Lose pounds to gain inches! Many men can correct their weight simply by improving their diet.
Low zinc - Zinc is perhaps the most important single nutrient for a man's sexuality. It is crucial for the production of sperm and seminal fluid. Clinical studies show that men who supplement zinc experience a dramatic increase in testosterone levels. Zinc also reduces the pituitary's formation of prolactin, a hormone that stops testosterone production.
Have a zinc-rich meal every day. Promise yourself some food from the sea every day. Fish and seafood also provide essential fatty acids to protect your heart and improve circulation. Or have two handfuls of pumpkin or sunflower seeds or nuts; or a cup of peas or beans. If you like liver, it's rich in zinc. If you like toasted wheat germ, sprinkle a tablespoonful on your cereal, salad or soup for more zinc.
Drug reactions - Doctors rarely mention
the many ways that drugs interfere with sex. They worry
(and rightly so) that men will be reluctant to take a drug
that they know could interfere with this basic human drive.
side effects are hardly ever discussed when drugs are prescribed. Besides lowering libido, drugs can cause drowsiness, lethargy, confusion, depression and weight gain. Some drugs have a direct impact on brain chemistry.
Neurotransmitters, the brain's chemical messengers, are critical to sexual interest, performance and enjoyment. A wide range of medications – like antidepressants and high blood pressure medications – disrupt neurotransmitters, interfering with a man's ability to achieve erection or reach orgasm. The result is extreme frustration - imagine the outcome if neither you or your partner know a drug is to blame?!
If you are currently using medications that rob you of your sex life, find a good holistic physician and work out the lifestyle problems you have. In many cases, you may not need to resign yourself to a life without sex. If you think sex-robbing drugs don't apply to you, take a look at the long list of current drugs that do just that .
Lack of exercise - Exercise reduces tension, depression and anxiety. It increases self esteem, positive attitude, the capacity for joy, mental acuity, aerobic capacity, energy, and libido. Even a brief aerobic workout can point your mood towards lovemaking and encourage more intense orgasms. Most men have no idea how closely regular exercise is linked to their sexual performance.
During exercise, the body produces endorphins - the "feel-good" chemicals that increase arousal and orgasm intensity. This sexy effect reportedly lasts 1 hour or more after just 10 minutes of activity. In one new study, 78 healthy but sedentary men were studied during nine months of regular exercise. The men exercised for 60 minutes a day, three days a week. Every man in the study reported significantly enhanced sexuality, including increased frequency, performance and satisfaction.
Rising sexuality has even been correlated with the degree of fitness improvement! The results were clear: The higher the level of physical fitness a man is able to attain, the better his sex life.
Cardiovascular disease - Great sex for
men depends on clear arteries. Most men know that being
overweight increases their risk for heart disease but cardiovascular
disease will destroy a man's sex life long before it kills
him. Reason: when blood vessels are blocked, a man can't get the proper engorgement needed to achieve an erection.
Reversing atherosclerosis means better blood flow - and that translates to better erections and more sensitivity to touch. Those nerve endings that bring you so much pleasure during sex depend on good blood flow to be fully sensitized. Circulating blood disperses hormones, which regulate sexual function and response. And, of course, your heart has to be strong for the deep body, physical activity of lovemaking.
Change your diet. Avoid fatty fried foods and red meat. Eat more vegetables and salads. Again, exercise, exercise, exercise!
