Yikes! Stress Heightens Male Organ Odor

July 25, 2017

Stress is hardly something new under the sun, but the degree of stress the average person feels nowadays is almost certainly higher than in years past. It’s a fast-paced world in which personal and professional stakes can be very high, so it’s natural (if very unfortunate) that stress levels tend to be elevated among so many people. And as if stress by itself isn’t bad enough, guys need to realize that stress can contribute to a manhood health issue - namely, male organ odor. Yes, feeling stressed out can add to that unwanted reek emanating from a guy’s trousers.

Stress is prevalent

How big an issue is stress? According to the American Institute of Stress, 75% of all visits to a physician are for stress-related complaints and 20% of Americans report feeling "extreme stress." And the American Psychological Association reports that money, work and family are the top stressors for individuals surveyed.

As most people who have experienced stress know, it is also accompanied by an increased rate of perspiration. Now, sweat by itself does not create odor. Theoretically, a person could be drenched in sweat and still smell fresh as a daisy - provided that there weren’t any bacteria around to start breaking it down, which is what causes the aroma issue.

Interestingly, not all sweat is created equal when it comes to attracting bacteria. Obviously, there are certainly areas of the body where sweat tends to create a stench - the member and sacks, the armpits, the feet. But when a little sweat is trickling down the leg, say, it tends not to stink up the joint in the same way.

Why should that be? Basically it’s because of the specific glands that create sweat in the manhood and other "odiferous" areas. These are apocrine glands, and the sweat they produce includes a milky fluid which is basically catnip to bacteria. They descend on that particular sweat and have a real feast. And it’s these glands that are often overproducing when stress levels are high.

The male organ odor situation isn’t helped by the fact that the manhood lies beneath (typically) two layers of clothing, creating more heat (and therefore more sweat) and trapping the odor in an enclosed space. This makes it more concentrated - and more assertive when it gets released.

Lower stress

Men whose male organ odor may be impacted by stress sweat need to take steps to decrease their stress levels - both for the odor issue and for the larger issues (such as high blood pressure) that accompany stress.

Among the methods recommended for reducing stress are:

- Meditation. Spending time quietly concentrating on basic meditation techniques is a proven stress reducer for millions of people.

- Exercise. Physical activity often provides a physical outlet for the stress people are holding inside. Ironically, of course, exercise may also produce sweat, but it may be an appropriate trade-off for those who are highly stressed. And some forms of exercise, such as yoga, are both especially good at lowering stress and not as prone to inducing high levels of sweat.

- Reading. Spending time in a quiet room with a good book often makes a person feel they are in another - and much less stressful - world.

- Laughing. Studies have demonstrated that the simple act of laughing can help keep stress down.

- Self-pleasuring. Spending a little "me" time releases hormones that can relax a guy and keep anxiety down.

Reducing stress helps fight male organ odor, but so does regularly using a top drawer manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . It’s crucial that the crème includes vitamin A among its ingredients. Also known as retinol, vitamin A has anti-bacterial properties that can help diminish unwanted male organ odor. The crème should also include vitamin D, which supports healthy cellular function, especially during the dark winter months - a time when some people feel anxiety and stress due to lack of sunlight.

Got a Raw, Red Member? It Might Be Too Much Self-Gratifying

July 24, 2017

How much is too much? When it comes to self-gratifying, there is no easy answer to the question. Men might wonder from time to time if they are indulging in solo play a little too often, but since it’s tough to find hard-and-fast numbers on such private matters, they really don’t have any baseline to go by. But one red flag for a problem might be the persistence of a raw, red member - even when proper manhood care is practiced on a regular basis to prevent that very thing from happening!

How does a man know when self-gratifying is too much?

Though there is no set guideline that tells a man he is indulging in self-gratifying too often, there is definitely a way to look at the situation that can help a guy decide if he needs to lay off the personal fun for a while. Here are a few points to ponder:

- Does self-gratifying happen from time to time, but doesn’t stop a guy from doing his day-to-day activities? For instance, if he is invited out for dinner with friends, does he choose the dinner - or does he choose to stay home and fondle? If a man chooses dinner with friends, it’s a sure bet he has a healthy relationship with self-gratifying and isn’t letting the act consume his every thought.

- Does a guy think about self-gratifying all the time? A man who thinks about getting his next ‘fix’ even when he’s at work, out with his buddies or on a date might want to examine just how often he’s getting off and whether that time is cutting into other aspects of his life. Staying in for a good solo play session now and then is fine. But staying in for a self-gratifying session when it interferes with work, school and a social life is a sign of impending trouble.

- Does a guy have trouble getting off with a partner? This is a big red flag that should make a man truly reconsider how much self-gratifying he’s doing. He runs the risk of self-pleasuring so much that his brain eventually comes to recognize what he’s doing with his hand as the best, most efficient way to achieve release, and that can make it difficult for him to fully enjoy private time with a lovely new partner.

- Finally, is a man self-pleasuring so much that it is actually causing physical harm? This might be rawness, redness, swelling, pain or other issues concerning his manhood. And even when he does cause this harm, he goes back for ‘one more round’ more than once, thus making the problem worse. If a guy is suffering from a raw, red member but feels a compulsion to stroke it even more, it’s safe to say he’s probably self-pleasuring too often.

What to do about it?

For most men, these points will lead them to conclude there is no problem. And in that case, they will go along with their day-to-day lives, making self-gratifying a fun part of their routine!

But for those who have just realized things have gotten out of hand (so to speak), there are steps he can take to break free of the problem. The first move a man should make it to visit his physician and explain what’s happening. A good doctor will listen closely and help a man find the assistance he needs.

In the meantime, it’s important to mitigate the damage as much as possible. This can be achieved with a specially formulated male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) , especially one that contains Shea butter and vitamin E for soothing, as well as L-carnitine for relief of peripheral nerve damage that can result from rough handling.

Manhood Pain: Phimosis or Paraphimosis?

July 24, 2017

While most matters revolving around the circumcised/intact debate don’t have a huge impact on male organ health, a couple of manhood pain issues land squarely in the intact male camp - mainly because they involve the prepuce itself. Many intact men have heard of phimosis and paraphimosis - but many aren’t sure what each of them means and how they are different. And they are different, even if they both result in some manhood pain

Phimosis

Phimosis refers to a situation in which the prepuce cannot be pulled back to reveal the head. It is a very common condition in boys, much less so in adult men. The situation usually resolves itself by age 7 in 90% of cases and by age 16 in 99%.

Unretracted prepuce in the soft manhood does not itself produce pain; in the case of tumescence, however, there can be considerable discomfort. In addition, boys and men with phimosis are at a greater risk of balanitis, an inflammation of the head. As a matter of fact, often balanitis is the cause of phimosis in adult men or in boys who had previously successfully retracted their prepuce.

Paraphimosis

So what about paraphimosis? This condition is actually the opposite of phimosis. In paraphimosis, a man (or boy) has retracted his prepuce back past the head - but it becomes stuck there and can’t get released to expand back over the head.

Paraphimosis is much less common than phimosis - and is considered by most doctors to be a medical emergency if it lasts for an extended period of time (such as several hours). Why? Because paraphimosis usually means that the prepuce is tighter than it should be; otherwise, it would fall back over the head. (Although sometimes the issue is not that the prepuce is too tight but that the head is too swollen, usually due to balanitis.) If the prepuce is too tight and trapped behind the head, it may severely constrict blood flow in the manhood.

Unlike with phimosis, manhood pain is almost always associated with paraphimosis. The pain may increase if the tightness near the head results in swelling. In some cases, the lack of blood flow can create an extremely serious condition in which gangrene can develop, which may necessitate amputation of affected parts. This is why a man must consult a doctor if paraphimosis occurs for more than a couple of hours.

Management

In adults, phimosis is generally related to balanitis or another cause of an inflamed head. If this is not the case and the skin is simply too tight, there may be "loosening" exercises a man can employ to try to stretch out the prepuce. However, he should consult with a doctor before attempting these.

Paraphimosis often resolves itself within a couple of hours, with no prolonged swelling. However, when it persists, or if swelling appears, it is best to call the doctor. If the skin changes color, it is imperative to seek help at once, even if there is an absence of swelling. The manhood pain associated with paraphimosis may require local anesthesia in some cases.

Manhood pain can result from many causes other than phimosis or paraphimosis. Often, minor pain and soreness can be eased by regular application of a top notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Keeping the skin supple often eases pain, so select a crème with a combination of powerful moisturizing ingredients, such as vitamin E and natural Shea butter. It’s even better if the crème also contains vitamin C, as that vitamin helps boost the elasticity of member skin.

Avoid Manhood Pain with These Jock Strap Tips

July 22, 2017

During fast and furious sports, a man’s very delicate equipment can be quite vulnerable. That’s especially true if he chooses not to wear a cup or jock strap. This innovative protective device helps ensure a man’s member and sacks stay comfortable, held against his body in such a way that the chances of injury are lessened. But for many men, manhood pain might result from choosing the wrong jock strap. Here’s what a man needs to know about choosing and using a jock strap, as well as proper member care when using one.

Using a jock strap properly

A man will usually do anything to avoid manhood pain, so why are so many men reluctant to use a jock strap or cup? Some men say that the jock strap is too uncomfortable, especially when a cup is inserted. Others say that it simply makes them far too hot when they are in the midst of a good game on the field. And still others say that proper fit means it’s all too tight, and feels as though it limits their range of movement when they most need flexibility and speed.

To combat these ideas, try these tips:

1. Use a cup only when necessary. Not all sports require use of a cup. Basketball is a good example. A cup might not provide much protection during the game, but a jock strap is essential to keep the junk from bouncing as a man runs all over the court. However, those playing football, soccer or hockey - where rigorous contact might occur - are advised to use a cup. Those who play baseball are as well, as even the best reflexes probably won’t be able to deflect a 90-mph ball coming off the bat right toward the family jewels.

2. Look for a thick waistband. Though the thin waistbands can look appealing, especially on men who have great abs, keep in mind that this visual isn’t going to do him any favors in the protection department. In fact, it’s unlikely a man is going to be getting it on with a partner while wearing the jock strap, so why not go for functional? A thick waistband will hold the jock strap firmly in place, which is exactly what a guy needs when he’s moving around on the field.

3. Choose proper leg straps. Though men might be uncomfortable at first with the way a jock strap fits around their body, those straps are there for a reason. A man will get used to the feeling over time. So instead of choosing very loose legs straps, which could rotate during play and expose the most delicate regions, a man should go with leg straps that fit firmly but comfortably.

4. Try it on. Avoiding manhood pain can’t be achieved if a man refuses to test out the jock strap before hitting the field. The best route is to try it on in the sportswear store. Wear tight compression shorts underneath the jock strap, then slip a cup into place. Walk around a bit to see how it feels. Running in place might also help. Keep in mind that just as jock straps come in a variety of sizes, so do cups. A guy must take the time to figure out which ones are the perfect fit for his body and athletic use.

Member care when using jock straps

Even with a properly-fitted jock strap and cup, a man will sometimes face chafing - and that can lead to manhood pain. A man should always take care to wash the area thoroughly after his sports adventures, then reach for a great male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to soothe and heal. Look for a crème that contains vitamin D, C and B5 for their healing properties, as well as alpha-lipoic acid to fight free radicals and L-carnitine to protect against peripheral nerve damage. All this in a Shea butter base is great for member care when using jock straps.

How to Solve Manhood Odor Problems

July 21, 2017

When it comes to male organ problems, it’s safe to say the most common issue is manhood odor. Depending upon the guy, a smelly male organ can show up even a few hours after a good shower during which he practiced proper member care and good hygiene. For other guys, manhood odor might not start to show up until he finishes a tough gym workout, spent a long day out at the lake or otherwise got hot and sweaty without the opportunity for another shower.

The good news is that a man can often keep manhood odor at bay by simply doing a few things every single day. These steps will help ensure a guy doesn’t wind up in an embarrassing situation.

But what causes manhood odor?

A man might become quite frustrated at the fact that it can be tough to eradicate manhood odor. In order to understand how to fight this particular male organ problem, a guy should know what caused it in the first place. Though a man might practice excellent hygiene, he still can’t stop the buildup of bacteria that naturally occurs on the human body. The bacteria love dark, damp areas - which are often found around the male organ. In addition to the bacteria that causes odor, other factors contribute, such as the occasional drop of urine, sweat that clings to hair in the area, and other bodily fluids.

In men who are uncut, smegma buildup might also be a problem. Smegma is a layer of white, cheesy buildup that usually occurs right below the hood of the male organ. This buildup is made of dead skin cells, skin oils, and bacteria that are attracted to the area. The result is a wicked manhood odor, one that can be strong enough to stop a man in his tracks.

How to solve manhood odor

Manhood odor can be tackled through excellent hygiene, which includes bathing or showering at least once a day. A man should use a mild cleanser. When cleaning the male organ area, he should take care to work the cleanser into the hair, thus stripping away the sweat and bacteria there. He should also pull back the hood of the male organ and clear away any smegma (assuming he is uncut, of course).

And speaking of cleansers, the one a man chooses can make or break the manhood odor situation. That’s because when the male organ skin becomes very dry, it often develops tiny cracks. These cracks are a perfect harbor for bacteria, which can then multiply merrily and lead to intense manhood odor. A well-moisturized male organ allows much less opportunity for bacteria to set up shop.

A man should also take care to shower or bathe at certain times of the day. For instance, a guy who has just gone to the gym should take the time to shower immediately after his workout, thus getting rid of all that sweat that built up while he was working out. A man who notices a buildup of manhood odor during the day might want to take two showers, one in the morning and one in the evening, to help alleviate the problem. And of course, before getting intimate with a partner, a guy will want to shower and make sure everything is fresh down there.

In addition to this careful attention to member care, a guy should reach for a top-notch member health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . This can be applied on a daily basis, thus helping ensure the best defense possible against manhood odor. Look for a crème that contains vitamin A, also known as retinol, which has powerful antibacterial properties. A crème should also contain vitamin C, B5 and D, all of which are known for helping to fight diseases and bacteria. Finally, look for a crème that has plenty of Shea butter and vitamin E. Both are natural hydrators that can keep skin smooth and supple.

Sensual Toys for a Bent Male Organ

July 21, 2017

Can a man with Peyronie’s disease utilize sensual toys in his private life? Many men with a severely bent male organ have wondered about this, and it’s a very legitimate question. While not strictly member health issue, it does speak to the ability of a man to enjoy sensual activity, so exploring this question is quite valid.

Peyronie’s

Many men have a curve in their member. Instead of being perfectly straight, it bends a little to the left or right, or perhaps up or down. Indeed, many men are especially proud of having a bent male organ, feeling that the slight curvature gives their organ distinction. And many women find a little curvature aesthetically appealing. More than one female has found that a manhood that curves at just the right angle is actually more prone to reach her sensitive spots during sensual activity.

But when a man has a curve that is too pronounced, it can be another story. Most men with excessive curvature are said to have Peyronie’s disease. This occurs when the connective tissue in the manhood is kept from doing its job. For example, if there is trauma to the member - such as rough handling during sensual activity (partner-based or solo) or if the member experiences a sharp blow, especially when tumescent - it may cause some of the tissue to rupture or tear. When the body goes about healing this tear, it does so by creating a thin layer of scar tissue. If tears and trauma keep recurring, more and more scar tissue is built up - and this can cause the problem.

The scar tissue lacks the flexibility of the connective tissue it is replacing. As more scar tissue builds up, the manhood has less flexibility when it goes from a soft state to a tumescent one. If, for instance, there is a large degree of scar tissue on the top of the member, then when the member becomes tumescent, there is less room for it grow on top. The underside of the manhood continues to grow at the rate to which it is accustomed, but the top "runs out" of connective tissue, causing the manhood to curve upward.

Many men with Peyronie’s find it does not affect them in the least. Some, however, find that the degree of curvature makes penetration difficult, or the inflexibility of the scar tissue causes pain when the male organ becomes firm.

Sensual toys to help?

For men for whom sensual activity is impeded due to their Peyronie’s, the use of toys might be valuable. The sensual toy most frequently suggested for men with Peyronie’s is a male organ sleeve. This is a hollowed-out, member-shaped toy, usually made of silicon, plastic or rubber, meant to fit over a man’s own male organ. Some men with a bent organ have found this can straighten the bend in their member while they are wearing it (although the curve returns when the sleeve is removed). Many of the sleeves come equipped with features, such as rings or bumps, which can provide extra stimulation to both the male and female organs.

Sometimes the degree of curvature of the manhood is not the problem; rather, the scar tissue build-up deadens the sensation in the member, making the ability to maintain tumescence difficult. Wearing a male organ ring (or a vibrating male organ ring) helps some men with this issue.

Of course, many men with a bent male organ require no sensual toys to achieve a happy life. But like all men, they do need to keep their male organ health at a high level, and application of a top rate member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help with that. It’s best to select a crème with both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that helps to keep member blood vessels receptive to increased blood flow. The latter, meanwhile, is neuroprotective and can aid a man in maintaining a proper degree of manhood sensitivity and sensation.

An Itchy Member May Accompany Plasma Cell Balanitis

July 20, 2017

Every man falls prey to an itchy member at one time or another, inevitably finding themselves caught while scratching away when they thought they were in a private situation. Often that itchy member is caused by some male organ health condition, hopefully one that is fairly minor and basically benign. In that category is plasma cell balanitis, a manhood issue often accompanied by some degree of itchiness.

Plasma cell balanitis

Also known as Zoon balanitis (after the man who described it in the medical literature in 1952), plasma cell balanitis is usually considered as distinct from "regular" balanitis. The latter is an inflammation of the manhood, usually spread out over much of the prepuce of the male organ. Plasma cell balanitis differs in that it almost always presents in a much more localized form; rather than being spread out, it appears as a smaller, more concentrated area, looking like one plaque or rash. Sometimes the red plaque may also have smaller pin-sized dots of a different shade.

Plasma cell balanitis is much more common in men who are intact than in men who are cut. Although it can occur at any age, it is almost always found in middle-aged or older men. (A female variant can occur in women.)

Cause unclear

Although it was first described in 1952, not a lot is known about this condition. The cause, for example, is not well-defined. The fact that it often occurs in intact men suggests some connection with the precupe, and indeed one of the primary accepted causes has to do with irritation to the area caused by secretions building up. (Urine sneaking under the prepuce and drying may also be partially to blame.) As the skin rubs back and forth, this creates an inflammatory irritation.

This would imply that the disorder occurs only in intact men who do not practice adequate male organ hygiene. However, it has been noted in some intact men with superior hygiene, as well as in a much smaller number of cut men. In such cases, friction, heat or some form of external irritating factor may be to blame. Some doctors theorize that bacterial infection, or possibly even HPV, could be causes as well.

Benign

Although many men mistake plasma cell balanitis for a social disease, it is in fact a benign condition that is not sensually transmitted. It may cause a red, itchy member - and may in some cases be accompanied by some minor pain - but it is essentially harmless.

Treatment

In some cases, initiating and maintaining proper manhood hygiene may result in the disappearance of the balanitis. Topical steroids are often recommended, as are topical calcineurin inhibitors (TCIs). Photodynamic therapy (using tablets which are then exposed to special lights) has been used by some doctors. In many cases, circumcision may be recommended.

With treatment, most cases resolve within 4-8 weeks, although an individual may find that the period is longer or shorter.

Plasma cell balanitis is considered a rare dermatological issue, but its exact rate is unknown; many doctors believe it is significantly underreported and that there may be more cases than is generally thought.

When plasma cell balanitis creates an itchy member situation, a man will want to take steps to help alleviate the itchiness. One way to help treat an itchy member is to regularly use a first class male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Member skin that is well hydrated is less likely to itch, so select a crème with both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). Skin will be further strengthened if the crème contains a potent antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, to fight the free radicals that can contribute to harmful oxidative stress.

Unusual Manhood Problems: Member Acne

July 20, 2017

Most people have dealt with pimples at some point in their lives. Rare is the lucky soul who hasn’t seen a pimple on their face, neck, or even their back. But when a man sees a pimple on his male organ, he might be amazed - how did acne get down there, of all places? Interestingly, men might wind up with member acne even if they are doing their best to perform top-notch male organ care on a day-to-day basis. The good news is that member acne tends to be rather easy to treat.

More about member acne

Acne on the male organ usually looks exactly like pimples on the face. Some might be red with a little white spot in the middle. Others might have a brown or red tinge. Some might take their time in growing larger, while others might simply appear overnight and vanish the next day.

Just as with acne on the face, it’s never a good idea to squeeze or pick at member acne. Doing so can force infection deeper into the skin, which can then make the pimple last much longer, or even lead to a broader infection. The best care is to ensure the area is clean, by washing with a mild cleanser, then drying it thoroughly by patting, not rubbing. Using a warm compress on the area if it hurts is a great way to help the pimple heal faster.

Is it really member acne?

Many guys worry about whether any bump or spot on their male organ might be something more serious. That’s perfectly normal - after all, it’s a man’s favorite body part! When it comes to member acne, the signs are often clear as to what it is. Not only does it look exactly like a pimple a man would see on his face, it also happens only here and there, rarely in clusters. The pimple usually clears up as quickly as one might on the face as well. For some people this might be a few days, but for others, it might be a few weeks.

If the member acne does not go away or becomes worse, it’s time to visit the doctor to rule out anything more serious. But rest assured, usually it’s really just as simple as an annoying pimple.

How to Treat Member acne

Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of the male organ skin, using the typical pimple remedies is not an option for member acne. As mentioned earlier, keeping the area very clean and using a warm compress to mitigate any discomfort is a good idea. The warm compress can also hasten healing.

Member acne that persists, gets worse or seems to move around with no end in sight should be seen by a doctor. Once all other causes have been ruled out, a man who is suffering from severe member acne might be able to take oral medications that can help his body fight off the problem. These types of medications are preferred over topical medications, as creams that are designed to fight blemishes are never to be used on the male organ area.

In addition to keep the skin as clean as possible and learning how to properly treat pimples when they arise, a man can step up his daily manhood care through use of a specially formulated male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . A man should look for a crème that contains vitamin A, for the antibacterial properties that can fight against acne, as well as alpha lipoic acid, which is known for fighting off free radicals that can lead to signs of aging. Since healing is important, vitamin E should also be included on the list. Other nutrients and vitamins, wrapped up in a luxurious Shea butter base, can help ensure a man’s male organ health stays as great as possible.

Male Organ Size Myths: Getting the Facts

July 19, 2017

There’s a time and a place for myths - but not when talking about male organ size. Just as it’s important to get straight-shooting facts when locating information on member health, so does a guy need to shoot down any myths about male organ size that may come his way.

Why? Well, because society places such a disproportionate emphasis on size - and it does so generally for reasons that are based more on myths than on reality. As long as guys go on thinking that it takes 7 or 8 massive inches to provide proper satisfaction to a partner, they’re going to have disappointment, potential manhood problems and lowered self-esteem.

With that in mind, let’s look at common male organ size myths.

- The average member is six inches long. For many years, this was accepted as a fact, but some more recent studies indicate that a firm member is more likely to be about 5.1" inches long. That means that many guys who are perfectly normal have thought they were "substandard" for not being the erroneously-reported 6" average - let along the sought-after 7" or more.

- Women crave a man with a long manhood. In fact, surveys indicate that, if size is all a person is looking at, most women (about 90%) are more interested in male organ width than length. More importantly, about 85% of women report being perfectly satisfied with their current partner’s endowment. (Interestingly enough, usually only between 40 and 55% of men say they are satisfied with their own male organ size.)

- Even if they don’t crave it, women still PREFER a longer manhood. In fact, for many women an above-average member can be problematic. While the female organ can stretch to accommodate a surprising range of sizes, it doesn’t necessarily do so without some pain. A woman who dates a man with an especially big male organ may find that it can take many attempts to achieve proper penetration - and many more to achieve painless penetration.

- Gay men are better endowed than straight men. This myth gained some scientific currency due to a 1999 retrospective study that did find that gay men, on average, had larger equipment. However, that study looked at data that was fifty years old. More importantly, the data was entirely self-reported - which brings into question its validity. At this point, there is no reason to suggest that sensual preference impacts male organ size.

- Hand size correlates with male organ size. Sorry, but tiny hands do not mean a tiny manhood - or vice versa. Neither does foot size. Yes, in some cases a man with a large hand or foot will have a large member, but he’s equally likely to have a moderate or small one. And the same is true in reverse for a man with small hands and a small organ. Simply more myths.

- A guy with a small member is more likely to be faithful. There aren’t really valid studies to support this myth. One study (not especially valid) found that men with a large member were more likely to cheat on their partners, which makes it easy to infer therefore that a man with a small manhood will be faithful. But there really is nothing to suggest that male organ size and fidelity are really correlated.

Male organ size myths need to be debunked so men can get on with more important and fruitful things - such as seeing to their member health. One excellent way to maintain manhood care is via the daily application of a first rate member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Many men will benefit from a crème that contains two key ingredients: L arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that plays a crucial role in allowing male organ blood vessels to more open and receptive to increased blood flow. The latter is a neuroprotective ingredient. If a man fears loss of sensation in his manhood from rough handling, L-carnitine can help to protect from loss of male member sensitivity.

What to Expect During a Social Infection Screening

July 19, 2017

From time to time, it’s a good idea for a man to undergo a social infection screening. This is true if a man is enjoying the company of more than one sensual partner, if he isn’t sure that his partner is monogamous (or if he is not), or if he’s thinking about unprotected intimacy with a steady partner for the first time. Men should consider social infection screening an integral part of male organ care, not something that can be overlooked or put off!

What happens during a social infection screening?

For many men, the thought of a strange messing around with their junk is the stuff of nightmares - even if that inspection happens in a medical setting. Here’s what a guy can expect:

1. A ton of questions. A guy will be asked a multitude of questions, and some of them might seem to be asking for ‘too much information.’ A doctor will need to know about a man’s sensual history, how many partners he has had recently (or ever), what kind of sensual activity he engages in and any health issues that might have arisen during those encounters. The doctor will ask blunt questions and expect frank answers. This is not the time to be coy!

2. A physical examination. A guy can expect to have his equipment explored a bit by the physician. This will include a visual examination for any lesions, irritations, bumps, bruises, sores and the like. It will also include a physical examination in which the doctor will touch the manhood and surrounding area. The goal is to find any lumps or bumps that can’t be seen, only felt.

3. Swabs and urine tests. During a screening, the doctor might want to take samples for examination by a laboratory. In order to do this, swabbing is typically used. This means using an instrument that looks very much like a Q-tip, passing it over and around any questionable areas to pick up a variety of cells from that area, and then sending those cells to the lab for examination. A man might also be used to provide a urine sample.

4. Blood testing. Blood tests are extremely helpful in screening, as they pick up infections that might be latent in the body - meaning that there are no outward signs of it at the moment. Herpes is a good example of this. A man who is having an active outbreak shows signs of the problem, but during the times between outbreaks, it can be impossible to tell a man has herpes simply by looking at him. A blood test, however, can reveal the truth.

5. More invasive examinations. A man who is dealing with a particular issue might undergo more invasive testing. For instance, a guy who engages in regular backdoor play and complains of bleeding or pain in that area might be examined there to figure out what the problem might be. However, rest assured that the doctor will be gentle and try to cause as little embarrassment as possible. Doctors have seen it all, so nothing a guy says will shock them or make them view him differently.

Staying healthy

A man who is worried about socially shared infections should take special care to prevent the problem by using barrier protection whenever he is intimate with a new partner, ensuring he is in a monogamous relationship before going without protection, and getting social infection screening on a regular basis, regardless of his relationship status.

When it comes to manhood health, a man can also make great strides toward better member care with a good male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Though no crème can prevent a socially shared disease, the regular application of a crème indicates good manhood hygiene; and that means a man will be faster to catch the first signs of an infection if he does contract one. A guy should look for a luxurious combination of Shea butter and vitamin E, as well as other nutrients and vitamins, to ensure his manhood skin stays in tip-top shape.

Yikes! Stress Heightens Male Organ Odor

July 25, 2017

Stress is hardly something new under the sun, but the degree of stress the average person feels nowadays is almost certainly higher than in years past. It’s a fast-paced world in which personal and professional stakes can be very high, so it’s natural (if very unfortunate) that stress levels tend to be elevated among so many people. And as if stress by itself isn’t bad enough, guys need to realize that stress can contribute to a manhood health issue - namely, male organ odor. Yes, feeling stressed out can add to that unwanted reek emanating from a guy’s trousers.

Stress is prevalent

How big an issue is stress? According to the American Institute of Stress, 75% of all visits to a physician are for stress-related complaints and 20% of Americans report feeling "extreme stress." And the American Psychological Association reports that money, work and family are the top stressors for individuals surveyed.

As most people who have experienced stress know, it is also accompanied by an increased rate of perspiration. Now, sweat by itself does not create odor. Theoretically, a person could be drenched in sweat and still smell fresh as a daisy - provided that there weren’t any bacteria around to start breaking it down, which is what causes the aroma issue.

Interestingly, not all sweat is created equal when it comes to attracting bacteria. Obviously, there are certainly areas of the body where sweat tends to create a stench - the member and sacks, the armpits, the feet. But when a little sweat is trickling down the leg, say, it tends not to stink up the joint in the same way.

Why should that be? Basically it’s because of the specific glands that create sweat in the manhood and other "odiferous" areas. These are apocrine glands, and the sweat they produce includes a milky fluid which is basically catnip to bacteria. They descend on that particular sweat and have a real feast. And it’s these glands that are often overproducing when stress levels are high.

The male organ odor situation isn’t helped by the fact that the manhood lies beneath (typically) two layers of clothing, creating more heat (and therefore more sweat) and trapping the odor in an enclosed space. This makes it more concentrated - and more assertive when it gets released.

Lower stress

Men whose male organ odor may be impacted by stress sweat need to take steps to decrease their stress levels - both for the odor issue and for the larger issues (such as high blood pressure) that accompany stress.

Among the methods recommended for reducing stress are:

- Meditation. Spending time quietly concentrating on basic meditation techniques is a proven stress reducer for millions of people.

- Exercise. Physical activity often provides a physical outlet for the stress people are holding inside. Ironically, of course, exercise may also produce sweat, but it may be an appropriate trade-off for those who are highly stressed. And some forms of exercise, such as yoga, are both especially good at lowering stress and not as prone to inducing high levels of sweat.

- Reading. Spending time in a quiet room with a good book often makes a person feel they are in another - and much less stressful - world.

- Laughing. Studies have demonstrated that the simple act of laughing can help keep stress down.

- Self-pleasuring. Spending a little "me" time releases hormones that can relax a guy and keep anxiety down.

Reducing stress helps fight male organ odor, but so does regularly using a top drawer manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . It’s crucial that the crème includes vitamin A among its ingredients. Also known as retinol, vitamin A has anti-bacterial properties that can help diminish unwanted male organ odor. The crème should also include vitamin D, which supports healthy cellular function, especially during the dark winter months - a time when some people feel anxiety and stress due to lack of sunlight.

Got a Raw, Red Member? It Might Be Too Much Self-Gratifying

July 24, 2017

How much is too much? When it comes to self-gratifying, there is no easy answer to the question. Men might wonder from time to time if they are indulging in solo play a little too often, but since it’s tough to find hard-and-fast numbers on such private matters, they really don’t have any baseline to go by. But one red flag for a problem might be the persistence of a raw, red member - even when proper manhood care is practiced on a regular basis to prevent that very thing from happening!

How does a man know when self-gratifying is too much?

Though there is no set guideline that tells a man he is indulging in self-gratifying too often, there is definitely a way to look at the situation that can help a guy decide if he needs to lay off the personal fun for a while. Here are a few points to ponder:

- Does self-gratifying happen from time to time, but doesn’t stop a guy from doing his day-to-day activities? For instance, if he is invited out for dinner with friends, does he choose the dinner - or does he choose to stay home and fondle? If a man chooses dinner with friends, it’s a sure bet he has a healthy relationship with self-gratifying and isn’t letting the act consume his every thought.

- Does a guy think about self-gratifying all the time? A man who thinks about getting his next ‘fix’ even when he’s at work, out with his buddies or on a date might want to examine just how often he’s getting off and whether that time is cutting into other aspects of his life. Staying in for a good solo play session now and then is fine. But staying in for a self-gratifying session when it interferes with work, school and a social life is a sign of impending trouble.

- Does a guy have trouble getting off with a partner? This is a big red flag that should make a man truly reconsider how much self-gratifying he’s doing. He runs the risk of self-pleasuring so much that his brain eventually comes to recognize what he’s doing with his hand as the best, most efficient way to achieve release, and that can make it difficult for him to fully enjoy private time with a lovely new partner.

- Finally, is a man self-pleasuring so much that it is actually causing physical harm? This might be rawness, redness, swelling, pain or other issues concerning his manhood. And even when he does cause this harm, he goes back for ‘one more round’ more than once, thus making the problem worse. If a guy is suffering from a raw, red member but feels a compulsion to stroke it even more, it’s safe to say he’s probably self-pleasuring too often.

What to do about it?

For most men, these points will lead them to conclude there is no problem. And in that case, they will go along with their day-to-day lives, making self-gratifying a fun part of their routine!

But for those who have just realized things have gotten out of hand (so to speak), there are steps he can take to break free of the problem. The first move a man should make it to visit his physician and explain what’s happening. A good doctor will listen closely and help a man find the assistance he needs.

In the meantime, it’s important to mitigate the damage as much as possible. This can be achieved with a specially formulated male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) , especially one that contains Shea butter and vitamin E for soothing, as well as L-carnitine for relief of peripheral nerve damage that can result from rough handling.

Manhood Pain: Phimosis or Paraphimosis?

July 24, 2017

While most matters revolving around the circumcised/intact debate don’t have a huge impact on male organ health, a couple of manhood pain issues land squarely in the intact male camp - mainly because they involve the prepuce itself. Many intact men have heard of phimosis and paraphimosis - but many aren’t sure what each of them means and how they are different. And they are different, even if they both result in some manhood pain

Phimosis

Phimosis refers to a situation in which the prepuce cannot be pulled back to reveal the head. It is a very common condition in boys, much less so in adult men. The situation usually resolves itself by age 7 in 90% of cases and by age 16 in 99%.

Unretracted prepuce in the soft manhood does not itself produce pain; in the case of tumescence, however, there can be considerable discomfort. In addition, boys and men with phimosis are at a greater risk of balanitis, an inflammation of the head. As a matter of fact, often balanitis is the cause of phimosis in adult men or in boys who had previously successfully retracted their prepuce.

Paraphimosis

So what about paraphimosis? This condition is actually the opposite of phimosis. In paraphimosis, a man (or boy) has retracted his prepuce back past the head - but it becomes stuck there and can’t get released to expand back over the head.

Paraphimosis is much less common than phimosis - and is considered by most doctors to be a medical emergency if it lasts for an extended period of time (such as several hours). Why? Because paraphimosis usually means that the prepuce is tighter than it should be; otherwise, it would fall back over the head. (Although sometimes the issue is not that the prepuce is too tight but that the head is too swollen, usually due to balanitis.) If the prepuce is too tight and trapped behind the head, it may severely constrict blood flow in the manhood.

Unlike with phimosis, manhood pain is almost always associated with paraphimosis. The pain may increase if the tightness near the head results in swelling. In some cases, the lack of blood flow can create an extremely serious condition in which gangrene can develop, which may necessitate amputation of affected parts. This is why a man must consult a doctor if paraphimosis occurs for more than a couple of hours.

Management

In adults, phimosis is generally related to balanitis or another cause of an inflamed head. If this is not the case and the skin is simply too tight, there may be "loosening" exercises a man can employ to try to stretch out the prepuce. However, he should consult with a doctor before attempting these.

Paraphimosis often resolves itself within a couple of hours, with no prolonged swelling. However, when it persists, or if swelling appears, it is best to call the doctor. If the skin changes color, it is imperative to seek help at once, even if there is an absence of swelling. The manhood pain associated with paraphimosis may require local anesthesia in some cases.

Manhood pain can result from many causes other than phimosis or paraphimosis. Often, minor pain and soreness can be eased by regular application of a top notch male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Keeping the skin supple often eases pain, so select a crème with a combination of powerful moisturizing ingredients, such as vitamin E and natural Shea butter. It’s even better if the crème also contains vitamin C, as that vitamin helps boost the elasticity of member skin.

Avoid Manhood Pain with These Jock Strap Tips

July 22, 2017

During fast and furious sports, a man’s very delicate equipment can be quite vulnerable. That’s especially true if he chooses not to wear a cup or jock strap. This innovative protective device helps ensure a man’s member and sacks stay comfortable, held against his body in such a way that the chances of injury are lessened. But for many men, manhood pain might result from choosing the wrong jock strap. Here’s what a man needs to know about choosing and using a jock strap, as well as proper member care when using one.

Using a jock strap properly

A man will usually do anything to avoid manhood pain, so why are so many men reluctant to use a jock strap or cup? Some men say that the jock strap is too uncomfortable, especially when a cup is inserted. Others say that it simply makes them far too hot when they are in the midst of a good game on the field. And still others say that proper fit means it’s all too tight, and feels as though it limits their range of movement when they most need flexibility and speed.

To combat these ideas, try these tips:

1. Use a cup only when necessary. Not all sports require use of a cup. Basketball is a good example. A cup might not provide much protection during the game, but a jock strap is essential to keep the junk from bouncing as a man runs all over the court. However, those playing football, soccer or hockey - where rigorous contact might occur - are advised to use a cup. Those who play baseball are as well, as even the best reflexes probably won’t be able to deflect a 90-mph ball coming off the bat right toward the family jewels.

2. Look for a thick waistband. Though the thin waistbands can look appealing, especially on men who have great abs, keep in mind that this visual isn’t going to do him any favors in the protection department. In fact, it’s unlikely a man is going to be getting it on with a partner while wearing the jock strap, so why not go for functional? A thick waistband will hold the jock strap firmly in place, which is exactly what a guy needs when he’s moving around on the field.

3. Choose proper leg straps. Though men might be uncomfortable at first with the way a jock strap fits around their body, those straps are there for a reason. A man will get used to the feeling over time. So instead of choosing very loose legs straps, which could rotate during play and expose the most delicate regions, a man should go with leg straps that fit firmly but comfortably.

4. Try it on. Avoiding manhood pain can’t be achieved if a man refuses to test out the jock strap before hitting the field. The best route is to try it on in the sportswear store. Wear tight compression shorts underneath the jock strap, then slip a cup into place. Walk around a bit to see how it feels. Running in place might also help. Keep in mind that just as jock straps come in a variety of sizes, so do cups. A guy must take the time to figure out which ones are the perfect fit for his body and athletic use.

Member care when using jock straps

Even with a properly-fitted jock strap and cup, a man will sometimes face chafing - and that can lead to manhood pain. A man should always take care to wash the area thoroughly after his sports adventures, then reach for a great male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to soothe and heal. Look for a crème that contains vitamin D, C and B5 for their healing properties, as well as alpha-lipoic acid to fight free radicals and L-carnitine to protect against peripheral nerve damage. All this in a Shea butter base is great for member care when using jock straps.

How to Solve Manhood Odor Problems

July 21, 2017

When it comes to male organ problems, it’s safe to say the most common issue is manhood odor. Depending upon the guy, a smelly male organ can show up even a few hours after a good shower during which he practiced proper member care and good hygiene. For other guys, manhood odor might not start to show up until he finishes a tough gym workout, spent a long day out at the lake or otherwise got hot and sweaty without the opportunity for another shower.

The good news is that a man can often keep manhood odor at bay by simply doing a few things every single day. These steps will help ensure a guy doesn’t wind up in an embarrassing situation.

But what causes manhood odor?

A man might become quite frustrated at the fact that it can be tough to eradicate manhood odor. In order to understand how to fight this particular male organ problem, a guy should know what caused it in the first place. Though a man might practice excellent hygiene, he still can’t stop the buildup of bacteria that naturally occurs on the human body. The bacteria love dark, damp areas - which are often found around the male organ. In addition to the bacteria that causes odor, other factors contribute, such as the occasional drop of urine, sweat that clings to hair in the area, and other bodily fluids.

In men who are uncut, smegma buildup might also be a problem. Smegma is a layer of white, cheesy buildup that usually occurs right below the hood of the male organ. This buildup is made of dead skin cells, skin oils, and bacteria that are attracted to the area. The result is a wicked manhood odor, one that can be strong enough to stop a man in his tracks.

How to solve manhood odor

Manhood odor can be tackled through excellent hygiene, which includes bathing or showering at least once a day. A man should use a mild cleanser. When cleaning the male organ area, he should take care to work the cleanser into the hair, thus stripping away the sweat and bacteria there. He should also pull back the hood of the male organ and clear away any smegma (assuming he is uncut, of course).

And speaking of cleansers, the one a man chooses can make or break the manhood odor situation. That’s because when the male organ skin becomes very dry, it often develops tiny cracks. These cracks are a perfect harbor for bacteria, which can then multiply merrily and lead to intense manhood odor. A well-moisturized male organ allows much less opportunity for bacteria to set up shop.

A man should also take care to shower or bathe at certain times of the day. For instance, a guy who has just gone to the gym should take the time to shower immediately after his workout, thus getting rid of all that sweat that built up while he was working out. A man who notices a buildup of manhood odor during the day might want to take two showers, one in the morning and one in the evening, to help alleviate the problem. And of course, before getting intimate with a partner, a guy will want to shower and make sure everything is fresh down there.

In addition to this careful attention to member care, a guy should reach for a top-notch member health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . This can be applied on a daily basis, thus helping ensure the best defense possible against manhood odor. Look for a crème that contains vitamin A, also known as retinol, which has powerful antibacterial properties. A crème should also contain vitamin C, B5 and D, all of which are known for helping to fight diseases and bacteria. Finally, look for a crème that has plenty of Shea butter and vitamin E. Both are natural hydrators that can keep skin smooth and supple.

Sensual Toys for a Bent Male Organ

July 21, 2017

Can a man with Peyronie’s disease utilize sensual toys in his private life? Many men with a severely bent male organ have wondered about this, and it’s a very legitimate question. While not strictly member health issue, it does speak to the ability of a man to enjoy sensual activity, so exploring this question is quite valid.

Peyronie’s

Many men have a curve in their member. Instead of being perfectly straight, it bends a little to the left or right, or perhaps up or down. Indeed, many men are especially proud of having a bent male organ, feeling that the slight curvature gives their organ distinction. And many women find a little curvature aesthetically appealing. More than one female has found that a manhood that curves at just the right angle is actually more prone to reach her sensitive spots during sensual activity.

But when a man has a curve that is too pronounced, it can be another story. Most men with excessive curvature are said to have Peyronie’s disease. This occurs when the connective tissue in the manhood is kept from doing its job. For example, if there is trauma to the member - such as rough handling during sensual activity (partner-based or solo) or if the member experiences a sharp blow, especially when tumescent - it may cause some of the tissue to rupture or tear. When the body goes about healing this tear, it does so by creating a thin layer of scar tissue. If tears and trauma keep recurring, more and more scar tissue is built up - and this can cause the problem.

The scar tissue lacks the flexibility of the connective tissue it is replacing. As more scar tissue builds up, the manhood has less flexibility when it goes from a soft state to a tumescent one. If, for instance, there is a large degree of scar tissue on the top of the member, then when the member becomes tumescent, there is less room for it grow on top. The underside of the manhood continues to grow at the rate to which it is accustomed, but the top "runs out" of connective tissue, causing the manhood to curve upward.

Many men with Peyronie’s find it does not affect them in the least. Some, however, find that the degree of curvature makes penetration difficult, or the inflexibility of the scar tissue causes pain when the male organ becomes firm.

Sensual toys to help?

For men for whom sensual activity is impeded due to their Peyronie’s, the use of toys might be valuable. The sensual toy most frequently suggested for men with Peyronie’s is a male organ sleeve. This is a hollowed-out, member-shaped toy, usually made of silicon, plastic or rubber, meant to fit over a man’s own male organ. Some men with a bent organ have found this can straighten the bend in their member while they are wearing it (although the curve returns when the sleeve is removed). Many of the sleeves come equipped with features, such as rings or bumps, which can provide extra stimulation to both the male and female organs.

Sometimes the degree of curvature of the manhood is not the problem; rather, the scar tissue build-up deadens the sensation in the member, making the ability to maintain tumescence difficult. Wearing a male organ ring (or a vibrating male organ ring) helps some men with this issue.

Of course, many men with a bent male organ require no sensual toys to achieve a happy life. But like all men, they do need to keep their male organ health at a high level, and application of a top rate member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help with that. It’s best to select a crème with both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that helps to keep member blood vessels receptive to increased blood flow. The latter, meanwhile, is neuroprotective and can aid a man in maintaining a proper degree of manhood sensitivity and sensation.

An Itchy Member May Accompany Plasma Cell Balanitis

July 20, 2017

Every man falls prey to an itchy member at one time or another, inevitably finding themselves caught while scratching away when they thought they were in a private situation. Often that itchy member is caused by some male organ health condition, hopefully one that is fairly minor and basically benign. In that category is plasma cell balanitis, a manhood issue often accompanied by some degree of itchiness.

Plasma cell balanitis

Also known as Zoon balanitis (after the man who described it in the medical literature in 1952), plasma cell balanitis is usually considered as distinct from "regular" balanitis. The latter is an inflammation of the manhood, usually spread out over much of the prepuce of the male organ. Plasma cell balanitis differs in that it almost always presents in a much more localized form; rather than being spread out, it appears as a smaller, more concentrated area, looking like one plaque or rash. Sometimes the red plaque may also have smaller pin-sized dots of a different shade.

Plasma cell balanitis is much more common in men who are intact than in men who are cut. Although it can occur at any age, it is almost always found in middle-aged or older men. (A female variant can occur in women.)

Cause unclear

Although it was first described in 1952, not a lot is known about this condition. The cause, for example, is not well-defined. The fact that it often occurs in intact men suggests some connection with the precupe, and indeed one of the primary accepted causes has to do with irritation to the area caused by secretions building up. (Urine sneaking under the prepuce and drying may also be partially to blame.) As the skin rubs back and forth, this creates an inflammatory irritation.

This would imply that the disorder occurs only in intact men who do not practice adequate male organ hygiene. However, it has been noted in some intact men with superior hygiene, as well as in a much smaller number of cut men. In such cases, friction, heat or some form of external irritating factor may be to blame. Some doctors theorize that bacterial infection, or possibly even HPV, could be causes as well.

Benign

Although many men mistake plasma cell balanitis for a social disease, it is in fact a benign condition that is not sensually transmitted. It may cause a red, itchy member - and may in some cases be accompanied by some minor pain - but it is essentially harmless.

Treatment

In some cases, initiating and maintaining proper manhood hygiene may result in the disappearance of the balanitis. Topical steroids are often recommended, as are topical calcineurin inhibitors (TCIs). Photodynamic therapy (using tablets which are then exposed to special lights) has been used by some doctors. In many cases, circumcision may be recommended.

With treatment, most cases resolve within 4-8 weeks, although an individual may find that the period is longer or shorter.

Plasma cell balanitis is considered a rare dermatological issue, but its exact rate is unknown; many doctors believe it is significantly underreported and that there may be more cases than is generally thought.

When plasma cell balanitis creates an itchy member situation, a man will want to take steps to help alleviate the itchiness. One way to help treat an itchy member is to regularly use a first class male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Member skin that is well hydrated is less likely to itch, so select a crème with both a high-end emollient (such as Shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). Skin will be further strengthened if the crème contains a potent antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, to fight the free radicals that can contribute to harmful oxidative stress.

Unusual Manhood Problems: Member Acne

July 20, 2017

Most people have dealt with pimples at some point in their lives. Rare is the lucky soul who hasn’t seen a pimple on their face, neck, or even their back. But when a man sees a pimple on his male organ, he might be amazed - how did acne get down there, of all places? Interestingly, men might wind up with member acne even if they are doing their best to perform top-notch male organ care on a day-to-day basis. The good news is that member acne tends to be rather easy to treat.

More about member acne

Acne on the male organ usually looks exactly like pimples on the face. Some might be red with a little white spot in the middle. Others might have a brown or red tinge. Some might take their time in growing larger, while others might simply appear overnight and vanish the next day.

Just as with acne on the face, it’s never a good idea to squeeze or pick at member acne. Doing so can force infection deeper into the skin, which can then make the pimple last much longer, or even lead to a broader infection. The best care is to ensure the area is clean, by washing with a mild cleanser, then drying it thoroughly by patting, not rubbing. Using a warm compress on the area if it hurts is a great way to help the pimple heal faster.

Is it really member acne?

Many guys worry about whether any bump or spot on their male organ might be something more serious. That’s perfectly normal - after all, it’s a man’s favorite body part! When it comes to member acne, the signs are often clear as to what it is. Not only does it look exactly like a pimple a man would see on his face, it also happens only here and there, rarely in clusters. The pimple usually clears up as quickly as one might on the face as well. For some people this might be a few days, but for others, it might be a few weeks.

If the member acne does not go away or becomes worse, it’s time to visit the doctor to rule out anything more serious. But rest assured, usually it’s really just as simple as an annoying pimple.

How to Treat Member acne

Unfortunately, due to the sensitive nature of the male organ skin, using the typical pimple remedies is not an option for member acne. As mentioned earlier, keeping the area very clean and using a warm compress to mitigate any discomfort is a good idea. The warm compress can also hasten healing.

Member acne that persists, gets worse or seems to move around with no end in sight should be seen by a doctor. Once all other causes have been ruled out, a man who is suffering from severe member acne might be able to take oral medications that can help his body fight off the problem. These types of medications are preferred over topical medications, as creams that are designed to fight blemishes are never to be used on the male organ area.

In addition to keep the skin as clean as possible and learning how to properly treat pimples when they arise, a man can step up his daily manhood care through use of a specially formulated male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . A man should look for a crème that contains vitamin A, for the antibacterial properties that can fight against acne, as well as alpha lipoic acid, which is known for fighting off free radicals that can lead to signs of aging. Since healing is important, vitamin E should also be included on the list. Other nutrients and vitamins, wrapped up in a luxurious Shea butter base, can help ensure a man’s male organ health stays as great as possible.

Male Organ Size Myths: Getting the Facts

July 19, 2017

There’s a time and a place for myths - but not when talking about male organ size. Just as it’s important to get straight-shooting facts when locating information on member health, so does a guy need to shoot down any myths about male organ size that may come his way.

Why? Well, because society places such a disproportionate emphasis on size - and it does so generally for reasons that are based more on myths than on reality. As long as guys go on thinking that it takes 7 or 8 massive inches to provide proper satisfaction to a partner, they’re going to have disappointment, potential manhood problems and lowered self-esteem.

With that in mind, let’s look at common male organ size myths.

- The average member is six inches long. For many years, this was accepted as a fact, but some more recent studies indicate that a firm member is more likely to be about 5.1" inches long. That means that many guys who are perfectly normal have thought they were "substandard" for not being the erroneously-reported 6" average - let along the sought-after 7" or more.

- Women crave a man with a long manhood. In fact, surveys indicate that, if size is all a person is looking at, most women (about 90%) are more interested in male organ width than length. More importantly, about 85% of women report being perfectly satisfied with their current partner’s endowment. (Interestingly enough, usually only between 40 and 55% of men say they are satisfied with their own male organ size.)

- Even if they don’t crave it, women still PREFER a longer manhood. In fact, for many women an above-average member can be problematic. While the female organ can stretch to accommodate a surprising range of sizes, it doesn’t necessarily do so without some pain. A woman who dates a man with an especially big male organ may find that it can take many attempts to achieve proper penetration - and many more to achieve painless penetration.

- Gay men are better endowed than straight men. This myth gained some scientific currency due to a 1999 retrospective study that did find that gay men, on average, had larger equipment. However, that study looked at data that was fifty years old. More importantly, the data was entirely self-reported - which brings into question its validity. At this point, there is no reason to suggest that sensual preference impacts male organ size.

- Hand size correlates with male organ size. Sorry, but tiny hands do not mean a tiny manhood - or vice versa. Neither does foot size. Yes, in some cases a man with a large hand or foot will have a large member, but he’s equally likely to have a moderate or small one. And the same is true in reverse for a man with small hands and a small organ. Simply more myths.

- A guy with a small member is more likely to be faithful. There aren’t really valid studies to support this myth. One study (not especially valid) found that men with a large member were more likely to cheat on their partners, which makes it easy to infer therefore that a man with a small manhood will be faithful. But there really is nothing to suggest that male organ size and fidelity are really correlated.

Male organ size myths need to be debunked so men can get on with more important and fruitful things - such as seeing to their member health. One excellent way to maintain manhood care is via the daily application of a first rate member health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Many men will benefit from a crème that contains two key ingredients: L arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that plays a crucial role in allowing male organ blood vessels to more open and receptive to increased blood flow. The latter is a neuroprotective ingredient. If a man fears loss of sensation in his manhood from rough handling, L-carnitine can help to protect from loss of male member sensitivity.

What to Expect During a Social Infection Screening

July 19, 2017

From time to time, it’s a good idea for a man to undergo a social infection screening. This is true if a man is enjoying the company of more than one sensual partner, if he isn’t sure that his partner is monogamous (or if he is not), or if he’s thinking about unprotected intimacy with a steady partner for the first time. Men should consider social infection screening an integral part of male organ care, not something that can be overlooked or put off!

What happens during a social infection screening?

For many men, the thought of a strange messing around with their junk is the stuff of nightmares - even if that inspection happens in a medical setting. Here’s what a guy can expect:

1. A ton of questions. A guy will be asked a multitude of questions, and some of them might seem to be asking for ‘too much information.’ A doctor will need to know about a man’s sensual history, how many partners he has had recently (or ever), what kind of sensual activity he engages in and any health issues that might have arisen during those encounters. The doctor will ask blunt questions and expect frank answers. This is not the time to be coy!

2. A physical examination. A guy can expect to have his equipment explored a bit by the physician. This will include a visual examination for any lesions, irritations, bumps, bruises, sores and the like. It will also include a physical examination in which the doctor will touch the manhood and surrounding area. The goal is to find any lumps or bumps that can’t be seen, only felt.

3. Swabs and urine tests. During a screening, the doctor might want to take samples for examination by a laboratory. In order to do this, swabbing is typically used. This means using an instrument that looks very much like a Q-tip, passing it over and around any questionable areas to pick up a variety of cells from that area, and then sending those cells to the lab for examination. A man might also be used to provide a urine sample.

4. Blood testing. Blood tests are extremely helpful in screening, as they pick up infections that might be latent in the body - meaning that there are no outward signs of it at the moment. Herpes is a good example of this. A man who is having an active outbreak shows signs of the problem, but during the times between outbreaks, it can be impossible to tell a man has herpes simply by looking at him. A blood test, however, can reveal the truth.

5. More invasive examinations. A man who is dealing with a particular issue might undergo more invasive testing. For instance, a guy who engages in regular backdoor play and complains of bleeding or pain in that area might be examined there to figure out what the problem might be. However, rest assured that the doctor will be gentle and try to cause as little embarrassment as possible. Doctors have seen it all, so nothing a guy says will shock them or make them view him differently.

Staying healthy

A man who is worried about socially shared infections should take special care to prevent the problem by using barrier protection whenever he is intimate with a new partner, ensuring he is in a monogamous relationship before going without protection, and getting social infection screening on a regular basis, regardless of his relationship status.

When it comes to manhood health, a man can also make great strides toward better member care with a good male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . Though no crème can prevent a socially shared disease, the regular application of a crème indicates good manhood hygiene; and that means a man will be faster to catch the first signs of an infection if he does contract one. A guy should look for a luxurious combination of Shea butter and vitamin E, as well as other nutrients and vitamins, to ensure his manhood skin stays in tip-top shape.
