Everyone’s familiar with the zany college movie where young adults are consuming oodles of drugs and tons of alcohol and still having outrageous sex. What they miss is the misfire alcohol and drugs can cause men. These substances can kill an erection or make it so you can’t have one. And if you do, you’re more likely to take part in risky sex, say without a condom. As a result, you’re at higher risk of unwanted pregnancy or acquiring and STD, not to mention how awkward it is the next day. Impulses like wanting to try drugs can end in disastrous results. Recently Addictions.com, a website dedicated to those who are struggling with substance abuse, surveyed over 2,000 participants about drug and alcohol use and how it influenced their sex life. 47% of respondents said they ended up in bed with someone they otherwise wouldn’t have.
Just as with other studies, this one discovered that the chances of acquiring an STD increased when inebriation was present. Since such substances can dampen the immune system, they cause you to become more susceptible to infection or even make it more difficult for your body to fight it off. Another finding, consistent drug or alcohol abuse caused the user to tend to have sex with more than one partner. This can increase your risk of an STD significantly. Drinking or drug use was found to elevate the likelihood of unwanted pregnancy by 13.23%. Meanwhile 22.65% of respondents said they cheated on their partner while drunk or high. 12.63% of male respondents experienced it. While 38.09% couldn’t form an erection. For women, 32.84% couldn’t reach orgasm= and 11.61% suffered from vaginal dryness. Lastly, 10% of sexual assault cases occurred while someone was under the influence. If you believe you have a substance abuse problem, contact a rehab center in your area. Should you be experiencing sexual dysfunction, contact a doctor or urologist.
ED isn’t a condition unto itself. Something causes it. Usually, it’s a serious condition. The topmost cause among sufferers is heart disease, followed by type 2 diabetes. But a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Neurology, finds that it is also an early warning sign of Parkinson’s as well. This is a neurodegenerative disorder known for causing tremors, balance and coordination issues, and motor problems. It gets progressively worse over time. No one knows what causes it. In this study, 3,000 men who recently received an ED diagnosis and 12,000 other, healthy controls, took part. Among those with ED, 52% were found to have Parkinson’s at the seven year follow-up. Once researchers screened for a certain condition, the relationship got even stronger. While type 2 diabetes is a big risk factor for ED, those who have it are three times more likely to develop Parkinson’s.
Of course, lots of other things can cause ED such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, drug or alcohol abuse, certain medications, and so much more. In a minority of cases, an emotional or mood disorder is at fault. These include depression, anxiety, overstress, and relationship issues. Of course, every man has a misfire once in a while, but if it’s consistent over a prolonged period or happens at least once every four times, ED is suspected. So what’s the bottom line? Anyone who has ED or thinks that they do, should take it seriously. Men often want to hide it, as it’s usually a blow to their ego. But this can be the worst thing they can do for their health. Instead, it’s important to address the issue head-on, because the sooner a serious underlying condition is addressed, the better off a patient is. If you suspect that you might have ED, see a doctor or urologist right away.
It’s bound to happen sooner or later. Every man experiences premature ejaculation (PE) at some point. Such an occurrence once in a while is normal. If it happens every time, especially going back to since you’ve first started having sex, a medical or psychological issue may be to blame. In general, most couples laugh it off. But some men get very defensive about it or tend to retreat from intimacy. How you react can affect your partner. Those men who can calm themselves, laugh it off, and go ahead and please their lover, are usually the most successful. Of course, no matter what, a man feels vulnerable at this time. How his partner reacts says a lot about her and their relationship. If she makes him feel bad about himself, she’s probably not relationship material. If she gives him reassurance however, tells him that it’s “No big deal,” or pushes him toward pleasuring her, chances are she’s a keeper.
The vast majority of women don’t orgasm through penetrative intercourse anyway. So even if it doesn’t last that long, she can still have an orgasm. Another poor female reaction is when a woman beats herself up over it or retreats into herself. Some women look for constant reassurance. She may take PE as a sign that you aren’t that into her or aren’t attracted to her. If it’s a long-term relationship and she has a tendency toward low self-esteem, she may take it to mean that you’ve fallen out of love with her, or that you’re no longer attracted to her. Of course, any woman or man for that matter, can feel like this from time to time. But if she harps on it incessantly or if you’re having a problem and instead of focusing on you, she’s preoccupied with her own feelings, she may not be the best partner for you. If she’s emotionally supportive, helpful, and focused on you then she’s definitely the kind of woman you want to be with. Are you having consistent PE? Don’t suffer in silence. Reach out to a doctor or urologist, instead.
Although it’s thought of as a woman’s issue, men suffer anxiety over their bodies too. One of the things that makes them most distraught is, if they think their penis doesn’t size up with expectation. We often hear the phrase “size doesn’t matter.” The idea here is that the vast majority of men have what it takes to please a woman. Most men are average, determined to be exactly 5.1 inches long. Few fall below this although of course, some do. But a new study finds that there is some nuance to the belief that size is irrelevant, at least from the female perspective. A recent study found that the size of a man’s penis was only relevant depending on the type of romantic encounter. If this was a one-night-stand, greater girth, not length, was preferred. For a long-term relationships however, penis size wasn’t considered a relevant factor.
Although most men believe women prefer a longer penis, in actuality this can bruise the cervix, causing pain during intercourse. In this study, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles printed out 3D models of penises. They showed these to 41 women and asked which ones they liked. The criteria the pictures were evaluated on length, girth, and duration of sexual encounter. 33 models were presented. They ranged from four inches long and 2.5 inches in circumference, to 8.5 inches long and seven inches around. Since the nerve endings in the vagina are pressure sensitive, they detect the sensation of stretching. This also brings the clitoris closer to the vaginal opening during penetrative intercourse, which may increase the chances of orgasm. Most women said they preferred a 6.5 inch penis for a short-term partner. For a long-term partner, personality and other considerations were put front row center, and penis size was thrown out the window. Also, women tended to overestimate a man’s size after an encounter, another study found. If you’re concerned about size, see a doctor or urologist about it.
A lot of men suffer from a condition called Erectile Dysfunction (ED). It is a very frustrating, and often embarrassing, experience. The Erectus Shot is a natural male enhancement that makes use of cell-assisted technology and growth factors that are derived from the body. How does it target male enhancement? It helps regenerate penile tissue to support erection, penis size, and greater sexual performance. It helps support a healthier penis as an alternative to medications that are used for the purpose of male enhancement.
The Erectus Shot will also work alongside the body’s regenerative properties to make circulation to the penis better and increase the the quality of the erection. It has even more advantages, like the treatment basically being painless and little to no downtime necessary after the shot. There are very few side effects because the treatment is derived from the patient’s body.
ED means that a man is not able to keep an erection throughout sexual performance. According to one national survey, 10 percent of men reported not being able to maintain an erection. ED can result from failure to fill, initiate, or store the necessary volume of blood within the lacunar network. Although there are some treatments that can help, they are unable to re-establish functionality in all patients. Men with problems like heart disease, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension are all more likely to suffer from ED. Frequently, the medications that are used to treat issues like these will affect ED.
The best candidates for the Erectus Shot are men who experience ED. But a complete exam by a doctor is needed to determine the severity and reason for ED. Don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation now and we can figure out whether you may be an ideal candidate for the Erectus Shot!
It’s something we take for granted, until a problem occurs with our erection. This shouldn’t be confused with age-related changes, however. As we get older, it may take longer to form an erection, and it may not be as rigid as it once was. This is to be expected. Trouble is, men also become more prone to erectile dysfunction. That’s usually do the onset of certain conditions, such as heart disease or type 2 diabetes. One of the most important things to keep in mind, in terms of sexual health as one ages, is maintaining proper blood flow. Fortunately, lifestyle factors have a lot to do with it. If you want to keep your penis in tiptop condition or if you feel like your waning a bit and wonder what you can do, here are a few simple ways you can boost your erection. First, an easy one, drink coffee. Those men shown to consume two to three cups per day were less likely to develop ED, according to a study out of the University of Texas Health Science Center. Just avoid the cream and sugar or else you may increase abdominal weight and undermine your efforts.
How often do you get exercise? Cardio benefits your heart and your penis, too. Those men who get regular aerobic exercise often have a healthier circulatory system. But those who are sedentary or overweight generally have poorer circulation, according to a 2015 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Men who work out more intensely seem to have a healthier sexual response. How often do you eat fruit? Apples and pears seem to be particularly healthy for sexual functioning. One study found that those men who ate apples, berries, oranges, or red wine, somewhere over the course of a week, were 19% less likely to report sexual dysfunction. Researchers believe antioxidants called flavonoids are why. Do you brush your teeth regularly? What about visiting the dentist periodically? If not, you could run into trouble. Those men who have periodontal or gum disease have a higher risk of ED, according to an analysis published in the journal Nature. If you have ED or think that you do, talk to a doctor or urologist about it.
Zion Market Research has some good news for condom company investors and bad news for daters. The US condom market, for both male and female condoms, is expected to jump significantly in the coming years. For the 2017-2022 period, it’s supposed to jump 3.5%. It’ll be work $1,680,220 from $1,366,860 million in 2016. Though some other ideas are on the horizon to stopping unwanted pregnancy, nothing seems to be able to replace the old barrier method, when it comes to halting STDs and HIV infection. In the old days, there was one variety. But today, they vary widely in size, color, texture, materials, and thicknesses. There are also a lot of styles to choose from. The ultra-thin kind are exceedingly popular these days. If used correctly, condoms are highly effective in stopping STDs. But using it right is essential. If you use one, always be sure you have it facing the right way, pinch the air out of the reservoir tip, and roll it down all the way to the base.
According to the CDC, STD infections have gone up every year. This year, they reported the highest level on record. There was just 110 million STD infections in 2008. This year, the CDC estimates we’ll see 19.7 million. 50% of these infections are among men and women ages 15 to 24. Greater public awareness is driving up condom usage more and more. Because of this, there’s actually a Renaissance in condoms today. There are ones that glow in the dark, others that come with warming gels, and others still which have delaying lubricants that help a man to last longer. Though other regions are experiencing record STD rates, the US has seen its increase by 50-100 times. Know that anyone who is having sex is susceptible to STDs. That’s why it’s important to protect yourself, and to get tested annually. If you’re last one was over 12 months ago, see a doctor or urologist for a screening.
What country would you think has the biggest penises on average? One study found that it’s the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). How about the smallest? That’d be North Korea. It may be due to the abject poverty people grow up with there, which stunts their growth in many ways. The record for the world’s longest penis is currently held by an American. He’s 22 years-old and lives in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. How long is he? 19.1 in. (48.5 cm) long. This was recently verified by international authorities at a measuring ceremony that took part at “Daniel’s” home. His real name has been omitted to protect his privacy. But the man told a clutch of reporters assembled there that he was “thrilled” by the results. Roberto Esquivrel Cabrera of Mexico was the record holder up until 2015. Cabrera measures 18.9 in. (48.1 cm). So how far off is this from the average? A recent British study found that 5.1 in. (12.9 cm) erect is the worldwide average. While in girth, the average is 3.5-3.9 in. (9-10 cm).
Most women say they prefer girth over length. While either can hurt, extra length can actually bang into the cervix, causing pain. Although there is a small minority of women who like the feeling of their cervix being reached, albeit gingerly. Since the nerve endings are mostly near the opening of the vagina, more girth could give more sensation. But many men aren’t concerned about their partner’s pleasure but rather, how impressive they look. In any event, a monstrously long penis can actually cause trouble for the man who carries it. Daniel said his girlfriend recently broke up with him because she couldn’t handle it. He finds it difficult to find someone who can. If you think you’re penis is too big or too small, talk to a doctor or urologist about it.
Premature ejaculation (PE) is a different condition than erectile dysfunction. While ED is generally caused by a lack of blood flow, PE can have a myriad of different causes. Viagra and other ED drugs cause blood vessels to expand, letting more blood into the penis. While this is advantageous for ED, it may not work for PE. With PE, there are two main kinds, primary and acquired PE. Men who have had it for all their sexual encounters from the beginning, are said to have primary PE. While those who have had successful sexual encounters before, have acquired PE. Another aspect is expectation versus reality. If you consider internet porn to be the standard, you’re sorely mistaken. The average bout of penetrative intercourse lasts for about five minutes. With PE, that means ejaculating in less than a minute’s time or even before penetration takes place.
Lots of things can cause PE. It might be genetic, as a side effect of a certain medication, a brain chemical imbalance, and more. There are equally as many cures, and the treatment must fit the cause. Some men also like a combination of treatments. There are some times when an ED drug might be appropriate, such as when a man’s primary issue is ED. He’s afraid of losing his erection during the course of penetrative sex. So he ejaculates before losing his erection. In this case, an ED drug may be required. You never want to evaluate or medicate yourself, however. ED drugs can have side effects. What’s more, they can be dangerous when taken alongside other medications. A mood disorder such as anxiety or depression could be behind it. Or a physical cause such as diabetes, high or low blood pressure, high cholesterol, and more. Or it may even be a combination of issues. Be sure and see a doctor or urologist to get to the bottom of it.
President Donald Trump recently announced he was banning the transgendered from serving in the US military. He said it was due to the burden of medical costs surrounding such service members. Many media outlets responded. Transgendered personnel only costs 0.13% of the military’s overall medical budget, or $8.4 million. It spends ten times that much on ED drugs, $84 million. That fills 1.8 million prescriptions. The most common among them is Viagra. This begged the question as to why the military spends so much on the drug. Though it sounds frivolous, their answer is anything but. ED is a common side effect of PTSD. Many active troops and veterans experience post-traumatic stress disorder, particularly those who have returned from the most recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. 85% of veterans with PTSD experience ED, according to a study published in 2002 in the journal Urology. Among the general male population, the rate is 22%.
Meanwhile, a 2012 report found that 257,000 veterans who’ve returned from our most recent conflicts experience PTSD. Viagra actually became available to military personnel the year it came out, 1998. While it costs $25 per pill today, its original price was $10 per pill. Talk about inflation. Servicemen and veterans only receive six per month, and can only get a prescription through the VA “after a thorough evaluation.” Being immersed in a testosterone driven environment such as the military, makes it difficult for men to talk about PTSD and especially ED. But many say that it really helps them to recover and normalize their lives once again. Trauma isn’t an easy thing to recover from. Viagra seems to help many heal the emotional wounds that they’ve accumulated. From that perspective, it’s easy to see why the military finds it an essential part of their medical budget. If you’re suffering from ED, address the issue with a doctor or urologist.
