Procrasturbation: Self-Pleasuring as a Delay Tactic

Whether it’s a once-in-a-while thing or a part of his daily activities, self-pleasuring is something that almost all guys enjoy (whether they freely admit it or not). It has survived centuries of badmouthing and sometimes-hysterical denunciations for the simply reason that it feels good, produces positive results, is good for male organ health, and, in most cases, is harmless. Of course, like every activity, there can be times when its use can turn to misuse, and then there can be a problem. Such is the case when self-pleasuring turns into procrasturbation.

Procrastur-what?

It’s not in the official dictionary, but procrasturbation is more and more in use in common language. Although originally the term was developed to describe a pleasurable feeling that a person gets from putting off doing a task or job that they really don’t want to do, it has evolved into the much more specific idea of using self-pleasuring as a way to avoid doing that task or job.

The phrase comes about, of course, from combining self-pleasuring with procrastination (the tendency to put off doing an unwanted task or job). Everyone procrastinates, of course – it’s just for some people it’s a very rare thing whereas for others it’s a habit.

Psychologically speaking, procrastination makes sense. As an article in Psychology Today explains, “We are more likely to do things that we expect to succeed at and we value” and “We typically discount future rewards in favor of immediate rewards.” So when we view a task disfavorable – thinking it’s something we might fail at – we have an inclination to avoid it. And since we are more likely to grab at something that immediately rewards us rather than that which rewards us in the future, this heightens our willingness to procrastinate.

And it’s that sense of immediate reward that makes procrasturbation so attractive. Not only does a guy get to put off working on that long, boring report, but he gets to experience the intense pleasure of self-pleasuring as well – seemingly a win-win situation.

Not always

And in fact, on occasion, procrasturbation can indeed by a win-win situation. Stop working on a project that is giving a man grief and spending time self-stimulating his member can in some instances actually help in at least two ways. (1) Sometimes taking a break and steeping back away from a touch job can enable a person to return to it with a fresh eye and perspective, and (2) the chemicals released during self-pleasuring can relax a man so that he feels more refreshed when returning to the problem and also more focused.

However, often procrasturbation just adds to the problems created by regular procrastination – avoiding facing an inevitable problem, usually thereby reducing the amount of time left to work on the problem and creating a greater sense of tension and anxiety because there is now less time to deal with the situation.

If a person finds he engages in frequent procrasturbation, he may wish to consult with a professional. Dealing with procrastination part of procrastubation is usually the way to ease this situation and can lead to less stressful ways of working.

Sometimes procrasturbation results in such intense self-pleasuring that a guy may rub himself rather raw. Using a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can come in handy in such cases. Manhood skin that has been over-self-gratified may be rough and dry, and there by needs significant moisturization. Select a crème that contains a combination of moisturizing agents, such as vitamin E and natural shea butter. In addition, rough handling can lead to de-sensitization of the member. A crème with L-carnitine, which has neuroprotective properties that help maintain male organ sensation, is called for in such cases.

Self-gratification Myths Debunked

Choking the chicken. Waxing the surfboard. Jerkin’ the gherkin. There are a million ways to describe self-gratification and just about as many ways to do it. With an activity so prevalent, it’s odd that there is so much bad information in circulation. Let’s take a minute to talk about nearly every man’s favorite pastime: self-gratification.

What Is Self-gratification?

 

Self-gratification is when a man touches, strokes, and otherwise stimulates his member for pleasure. The hand is not the only thing a man can use for self-pleasure. Many men use a variety of sensual aides for stimulation or things they have made into their own pleasure devices (à la American Pie). Self-gratification can also include more than just the member. Many men also stimulate other erogenous zones such as the nipples, privates, perineum, and back. Usually, self-gratification ends with the release of seed, but it doesn’t need to. Plenty of men enjoy the journey and don’t need the release.

Self-gratification Myth #1: A Man Is a Pervert if He Pleasures Himself

 

Some cultures, societies, and religions demonize self-gratification and believe that if a man pleasures himself, he’s a deviant. However, it’s simply not true. Perversion is described as something that is abnormal and unacceptable. So, if a man pleasuring himself is something that society deems as unacceptable, then he may be perceived as a pervert. But the action of self-pleasure itself is not grounds for calling someone a pervert and, abnormal and unacceptable is a widely subjective designation, anyway.

Self-gratification Myth #2: It Causes Hairy Palms

 

Unless a man is a werewolf and only pleasures himself on the full moon, no, self-gratification does not cause hairy palms. It’s believed that this superstition hails from a book published in 1756 called the Onania. The intent of the book is to frighten people away from self-pleasure and other practices.

Self-gratification Myth #3: A Man Can Lose His Virginity by Pleasuring Himself

Nope. Virginity is not a self-serve sorta thing. Virginity is more a societal ideal than a physical act. It does not require someone of an opposing gender and for women does not require the breaking of the hymen (which often happens well before the act ever happens). Think of self-gratification as more ritual than biological.

Self-gratification Myth #4: Self-gratification Causes Health Problems

Actually, self-gratification can help a man’s health. It is a gateway to intimate health by helping men understand what they like and what they are comfortable with. Self-gratification is a free way to reduce stress and create a happier headspace. It also helps sleep quality and athletic (and sensual) performance.

Believe it or not, studies have shown that regular self-gratification with release is linked to a reduction in the possibility of prostate cancer. A 2016 study showed that men who released 21 times or more each month had a 20-percent decrease in the likelihood of prostate cancer. The only caveats to this are for men who wax the banana when hands are dirty or infected. Also, be sure to do a proper skin test prior to using any lubricant.

Self-gratification Managed

Now, although self-gratification is a healthy, normal activity, it does make sense to take a moment and talk about proper member care because it’s a delicate appendage, after all. First, be sure to give the member enough rest between sessions. Just like any other muscle, it needs a little recovery time. Also, be mindful of how tight the grip is because a too-tight death grip can cause friction burn and make the member less sensitive in both the short and long run.

Second, be sure to wash that mighty member often and after every self-love sesh. Use tepid water and a gentle cleanser like baby wash to gently and meticulously wash the member, being sure to suds up all the privates and retract the foreskin for a soft, squeaky clean. Also, rinse well and either air or towel dry with soft pats as opposed to rubbing the towel across the frisky fella.

Lastly, reward him with an indulgent, specially formulated member health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to nourish and rejuvenate the member. Creams with a natural base like shea butter or vitamin E that include other vitamins that promote manhood wellness, like A, C, and D, are essential for providing the member with vital nutrients and moisture for optimal member health. Look for creams that also have L-carnitine, a science-backed protector against peripheral nerve damage. A little love now will result in some good self-love later!

Obesity and Intimate Health

When talking about obesity, experts and armchair experts alike focus on the major diseases brought on by obesity and the surface issues of beauty and belonging. There’s a lot of discussion and information out there about diabetes, heart disease, and other issues related to obesity. But what about intimate health? Shouldn’t that conversation be happening, too? We think so. So, let’s talk about obesity, intimate health, and what people need to know.

Obesity and Intimate Health: What Are the Risk Factors?

Many men suffering from obesity may also find themselves dealing with a diagnosed medical male organ dysfunction or a psychological issue with having intimate relations. That’s not to say that all obese men have these problems; however, obesity certainly raises their risk.

Relations Stoppers: Medical

Men who have diseases such as high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes often experience issues with intimate health. In fact, men who have diabetes are 50 percent more likely to have member dysfunction (MD) than other men. Obesity contributes to excess narrowing and hardening of the blood flow, which makes it more difficult to swirl around a larger body and down to the member in the vigor that causes the hardness.

These diseases all contribute in some way to the prevention of either getting hard or maintaining the firmness. They damage the inner linings of the blood vessels of the member, which then causes a restriction in blood flow due to lack of dilation.

Obesity can also happen as the result of, and also reduce, the amount of androgen in the body (it’s the original double-edged sword here). Androgen starts taking a dip in men between ages 40 and 50. Androgen starts the whole hardness problem off and without it, or with less of it, drive diminishes.

Finally, the inevitable cause: age. With age, stamina decreases. The entire body ages, so it’s natural that a man who was used to getting hard four times in one day in his 20s may only have the urge or ability three times a week in his 60s.

Relations Stoppers: Psychological

Often overlooked, psychological reasons can cause huge waves in a man’s intimate health. Of course, issues such as depression and anxiety can physically manifest as MD. However, there are much more nefarious effects than MD.

An obese man may be able to produce and maintain hardness without trouble, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he isn’t having problems. Poor self-image is another reason an obese man may shy away from intimacy with a partner. Potential rejection, fear of another person’s unkind judgment, or a demoralizing sense of self can also lead an obese man to ignore his intimate health.

An Easy Reversal

Thankfully, research has shown that 95 percent of male organ dysfunction can be easily treated. First and foremost, a man must address the root cause of his problem, be that medical or mental. After that, he needs to take doctor recommendations and also make lifestyle changes.

Things such as adopting a healthy diet, brining more movement into each day, getting adequate sleep, and not smoking are all critical parts of reversing intimate dysfunction. Doctors also say that a weight reduction of as little as ten percent within a two-month period will vastly improve the issue. Mental health interventions such as therapy and medication may also be part of a treatment plan.

While making these changes, give the member a little extra care. Use an expressly formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to strengthen and protect the member. Look for creams that list L-carnitine as an ingredient, as it is a science-backed guardian against peripheral nerve damage. Find a crème with vitamins A and C to ward off bacteria that can result from sweating, and to boost collagen production while fighting against agents of early aging.

Member Dysfunction: What It Is and How Doctors Diagnose It

Member dysfunction (MD) affects many men at different points in their life. While it seems to be discussed ad nauseum, not all men really understand member dysfunction. Sure, the common knowledge is that it’s a male organ problem and can be easily cured with a little blue tablet. However, that’s not the truth of the matter. A lot of times, MD goes deeper into a man’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

Member Dysfunction Explained

The first point that needs to be made about MD is that it’s a persistent problem. This means that if at least 25 percent of the time a man cannot get or maintain hardness when he “summons” it, he may have member dysfunction. It is a chronic condition, which implies that it is consistent and, while it can be treated, it cannot, for simplicity’s sake, be cured.

Let’s also take a moment to debunk a common myth: men of any age can have member dysfunction. It is not something that only affects older men. That also means that not all older men have MD. However, the risk of getting MD increases significantly as a man ages.

Finally, it must be understood that member dysfunction doesn’t look the same for every man. Some can’t get hard at all, while others can get hard occasionally. Some men can get hard but can’t maintain it. There’s a lot of range to MD, but that also means there’s a wide range for testing and treatment.

What Factors Causes Member Dysfunction?

To understand the diagnosis process for MD, it’s important to understand that it can manifest due to a wide range of causes. For some men, it’s all psychological. Men who are depressed, feeling anxiety, or having body issues can have MD. The most common factor, however, is men who have a disease may be experiencing member dysfunction as a symptom of their initial or root disease. This includes diseases and afflictions such as:

- Diabetes

- Obesity

- High blood pressure

- High cholesterol

- Heart disease

- Stroke

- Multiple sclerosis

- Cancer

Member Dysfunction: Tests for Diagnosis

There are many options for diagnosing member dysfunction. The most common are:

1) Physical Exam. It makes sense to inspect the equipment for any bruising, excessive scar tissue, lumps, or an excessive curve in the member, which could be Peyronie’s disease, and to see what the sensation is like during the exam. This exam will include both the privates.

2) Blood Tests. A blood sample may be drawn to check for signs of heart disease, diabetes, low androgen levels, and other health conditions.

3) Urine test. Like blood tests, this test is also used to look for MD-related illnesses such as diabetes.

4) Psychological Exam. The doctor may ask questions to screen for depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues.

5) Ultrasound. The most physically invasive of the tests, ultrasound is performed by a specialist. He or she will hold a wand-like device over the blood vessels that supply blood to the member. A video image of the test will be given to the treating physician for review to see if blood flow is the issue. This test can also be done in concert with injections of medication into the member, which cause the stimulation of blood flow and production of hardness.

After testing, the doctor will make a diagnosis and a specific treatment plan. Most times, hardness will return with treatment.

Men who suffer from, or believe they may suffer from, MD may want to try a specially formulated sensual organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to promote blood flow for stronger, long-lasting hardness. These special creams are made specifically for male organ problems and concerns and contain vitamins such as A, B, D, and E, which provide healthy cellular function. In addition, men should use a product containing vitamin C, as it boosts blood flow to the member to assist in hardness and strength. Additionally, look for creams with L-arginine, a powerful vasodilator that promotes increased blood flow, which leads to sturdier firmness.

Got Member Pain? Here’s a Guide for When to Call the Doc and When to Just DIY

Member pain may be the worst sort of pain for a man. It can be an aching, throbbing, smelly, hot, angry experience that could have a man baffled as to the cause. Of course, the mind frantically jumps to partner-transmitted infections first, but there are scores of other reasons for member pain. Here are a few that are more common than men think and ways a man can deal with them. Happily, many are easy to fix and allow men to go from having a sore male organ to a happy member quickly.

Member Pain #1: Male Organ Injury

Got a lot of ouch in the privates without any rashes or infection? It’s likely the most common cause for pain, a male organ injury. It can happen virtually anywhere at any time. Everything from Saturday morning mud-football, sensual acrobatics, and accidentally walking into an open cabinet door can all lead to a male organ injury. Thankfully, most times it doesn’t require a visit to the doctor. If it persists more than a week, make an appointment.

For minor injuries, pain reliever and cool (not cold) compresses are the treatment. Also, give the member some rest and stay away from any activities that could endanger your little friend, including all forms of intimacy and self-pleasure, until he is all good again.

Member Pain #2: Smegma

Smelling a bit of funk in the junk? If it smells like sour cheese and sweat, it may be smegma. If there’s a grayish-white, cottage-cheesy discharge, it’s almost certain. Smegma is a naturally made cocktail of fatty acids, sterols, lipids, and dead cells. It also can attract dirt, sweat, and bacteria into the mix. When it overgrows, it brings on an unpleasant odor and a red, angry, sore male organ that spits fire when urinating. Pleasant, right?

Mostly a week of cleaning the big guy gently and consistently will dissolve the issue. If it doesn’t clear up after that, head to the doctor’s office.

Member Pain #3: Balanitis

If the member appears angry and infected, especially on the head, it may be balanitis. Balanitis is an infection of the foreskin and the head of the male organ. This can also be the “next step” once smegma overgrowth goes into warp speed. Head to the doctor for help. If a man can’t urinate, he needs to go to the ER.

The doctor can also check for phimosis and paraphimosis, which are two conditions that affect the foreskin and often have balanitis as a symptom.

Member Pain #4: Peyronie’s Disease

The trouble with the curve isn’t just a Clint Eastwood film, it’s a serious problem that can result in a very sore male organ. If the curve is 20 percent or more, it could be Peyronie’s disease, which affects more than 20 percent of men, usually those over the age of 40. Peyronie’s results from a buildup of scar tissue that forms in the male organ after years of use (or misuse).

If a man suspects he has Peyronie’s, he should see his primary care doctor or urologist for treatment.

Prevent Member Pain

The best way to prevent a sore male organ is to take good care of it on a daily basis. Practicing safe intimacy, knowing when to say when, and using protective gear when necessary are all great steps to prevent member pain.

One of the most basic ways to avert male organ pain is to adopt a regular hygiene ritual. It’s as simple as cleansing the member daily (as well as after sweat sessions of every kind) with a gentle cleanser and tepid water. Be sure to wash thoroughly, pulling the foreskin back gently to ensure a truly clean member.

After a good wash, rinse, and dry, use a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to seal in hydration and fortify the skin. Use creams with a variety of natural vitamins and nutrients to guard against bacteria and nerve damage, while building up collagen for skin elasticity and boosting blood for strong firmness.

Male Organ Protection and Oral Sensual Activity

Conduct a poll among men of their favorite kinds of sensual activity, and oral sensual activity would be right up there near the top. Indeed, for some men, oral sensual activity is their number one choice. Its pleasures and appeal are obvious, but for those in non-monogamous relationships, the male organ protection issue always arises when discussing forms of sensual activity. There is debate over how much concern there should be about male organ health when oral sensual activity comes into play. So, should a guy take any steps in terms of male organ protection where oral sensual activity is concerned?

Risks

As with penetrative sensual activity, oral sensual activity does carry some risk of passing social diseases from one partner to the next. For example, if a man’s member is orally pleased by someone who has a social disease in the throat, there is a significant risk that the social disease will be passed on to that man’s member. Similarly, if a man is orally servicing the member of a man with a social disease on the manhood, that social disease can be passed onto the man’s throat. In the latter case, the chances of a man contracting the social disease are increased further if he has issues such as bleeding gums or gum disease.

What about HIV? The risk of transmission is much, much lower through oral sensual activity than through fastidious or Female cfastidious sensual activity; there are few reported cases, and some researchers suspect that some cases attributed to oral sensual activity may actually have originated through fastidious sensual activity. However, the official consensus is that while the risk of HIV transmission through oral sensual activity is very low, it is still possible. It is further thought that the risk is even lower if there is no swallowing of the sensual emission. As with other social diseases, the risk of transmission is thought to increase if the person servicing the manhood has poor dental hygiene, such as bleeding gums or gum disease.

Male organ protection

Doctors recommend that latex protection be used to decrease further the risk of transmission of social diseases and HIV. However, in practice, it is thought that few men follow this recommendation. If such is the case, and if a man is sensually active outside of a mutually monogamous relationship, there are several things he can do to provide better male organ protection. These include:

- Limiting the number of sensual partners with whom he is active. The greater the number of partners, the higher the risk of transmission.

- Partnering with others who limit their number of partners. Similarly, if the individuals a man partners with also limit their number of partners, the member is better protected.

- Getting tested regularly. Sensually active men in non-monogamous relationships are encouraged to be tested for social diseases and HIV on a regular basis; every three months is the general recommendation. This enables social diseases to be caught early on so that treatment can begin. It is also advised that a man choose sensual partners who are similarly tested on a regular basis. (Remember, in many instances, it is possible to have a social disease and exhibit no symptoms; therefore, regular testing is the best bet for an early diagnosis.)

In general, oral sensual activity is much safer than other forms of sensual activity, and is especially so when latex protection is employed. But it is not without risks by any means.

Male organ protection goes beyond covering one’s bases where oral sensual activity is concerned and includes daily steps to maintain overall male organ health. One of the most important steps in that area is to regularly apply a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . For the best results, find a cream that features a wide range of healthy vitamins, including A, B5, C, D, and E. Ideally, such a cream will also include L-carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient that is helpful in maintaining manhood sensitivity, especially when a member regularly undergoes rough handling.

Tumescent Male Organ Benefit: A Better Memory?

It may seem strange, but male organ health is often impacted by things that might seem unrelated to the manhood—for example, aspects of diabetes can bring about a tumescent male organ problem. By the same token, there can be issues related to the member that can have an impact on seemingly unrelated other parts of the body. One of the more interesting examples of this involves an active tumescent male organ, as some scientists believe that people who have sensual activity more frequently have an improvement in their memory.

Studies

Scientists have good reason to draw this conclusion: they have studied the relationship between sensual activity and memory. For example, in one study, 78 individuals were asked about their frequency of sensual activity. They were then tested on their word memorization skills. Those who reported more frequent rates of sensual activity did noticeably better on the memory quiz.

As most people know, there are many who suffer some degree of memory loss as they age. A more recent large-scale study, from 2018, explored sensual activity and cognitive decline in older adults. In that study, more than 6000 people who were at least 50 years of age took a test that assessed their memory capabilities. They also provided information on a range of subjects, including their frequency of sensual activity. Two years later, the same subjects were given another memory test. After taking into account various variables, it was found that there was better memory performance in those who were more sensually active. (This is not to say that there was no memory decline—just that the decline was comparatively smaller among those more frequently engaging in sensual activity.)

Not proof

Of course, these and other studies have not demonstrated that it is actually sensual activity itself that causes an improvement in memory. It may be that people who engage more in sensual activity also have a stronger bond with a partner, which might give emotional ties that impact memory. Or perhaps they are more frequently involved in mental activities with these partners, such that their memories are thereby kept sharper.

However, there is reason to believe that sensual activity does play some role in improving memory. By using special technology, scientists can measure neurological activity in the hippocampus. The more neurological activity, the more “work” there is being done in that part of the brain—and in rats, that part of the brain is found to be more active when they are engaged in sensual activity.

Anecdotally, there is also evidence. Although there’s a common myth that men let their tumescent male organ think for them, the fact is that many men report having a clearer head and mindset after sensual activity. This does not correlate to memory, but it does support the idea of post-sensual activity neural activity.

The jury may still be out, but it pays to keep one’s tumescent male organ healthy just in case its activity does affect memory—and for purely sensual reasons as well. Daily use of a top-drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is one good way to keep the manhood in better shape. Men should look carefully at the labels on these creams and find one that includes both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that is involved in the production of nitric oxide. This in turn helps keep male organ blood vessels open and expanded for increased blood flow. L-carnitine has neuroprotective properties, which are helpful when a member that has been over-aggressively handled runs the risk of losing sensitivity.

Diet May Impact an Itchy Male Organ

“Oh no, not now!” That’s what goes through every man’s mind when an intense itchy male organ attack occurs, as it inevitably does, on a first date or while making an important presentation in front of all the people who make the salary and promotion decisions. An itchy member is an incredibly common male organ health issue, but that doesn’t change the fact that it causes substantial embarrassment when it happens. Since preventing an itchy male organ situation is desirable, there are some things a man can try – such as proper hygiene, wearing clean underwear, etc. – to reduce the chances of its occurrence. Another one of these strategies is to be careful about the diet he consumes.

By diet, we’re not talking about cutting down on food to lose weight; rather, we’re discussing the choice of foods consumed, as it’s possible that some foods may be “triggers” for an itchy male organ.

The following list contains some of the foods more commonly associated with itchy skin. It’s by no means comprehensive, and it’s also true that every man’s body is different. What causes one man to scratch like crazy may do absolutely nothing to another man. Still, all things being equal, these are foods to consider limiting if eliminating an itchy male organ is a goal.

Changes to diet to consider

- Salt. Too much salt can create an itchy male organ situation rather easily. That’s because salt absorbs water, leading to skin dehydration—and dry skin tends to be itchy skin. So, a first rule is for men who heavily salt everything to cut down on their salt.

- Eggs. Eggs are often associated with skin itches, although exactly why is not clear.

- Seafood. Many men find that, as delicious as they may be, foods like crabs, shrimp, oysters, clams, and squid result in an itchy male organ. This restriction includes dishes in which seafood is only one ingredient of many, such as clam chowder.

- Foods with histamines. Histamines help prevent infection, but too many histamines lead to inflammation and itching. Cutting down on foods high in histamines – which includes spinach, eggplant, cheese, tuna, mackerel and red wine – can keep the itch away.

- Anything that causes an allergic reaction. This may seem like common sense, but many people eat foods they are allergic to—and are surprised when an itchy male organ (or rash or hives) later occurs. So, whether it’s peanuts, tomatoes, strawberries, or wheat, avoid any known or suspected foods that cause allergies.

Okay, so the foods listed above could cause an itchy male organ. Are there any changes to the diet that can help prevent itchy skin problems? Actually, yes. Foods that are rich in vitamins A, C, and E tend to give the body support to keep itchy skin at bay.

Most people know that citrus fruits tend to be rich in vitamin C, so eating oranges and grapefruits is good, as is consuming kiwi, cabbage, and broccoli. For vitamin A, men who are not allergic to eggs or milk can get a good amount there, or they can supplement with liver, cantaloupe, or sweet potatoes. Vitamin E is found in nuts, but many people have nut allergies, so they should instead opt for corn, spinach, olives, or wheat germ.

Fighting an itchy male organ through changes in the diet is an excellent step, as is utilizing a top-notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) for the same reason. As luck would have it, the best creams contain the very same vitamins already discussed as being beneficial for preventing an itchy male organ: vitamins A, C, and E. In addition to the above benefits, these vitamins offer other plusses as well. Vitamin A fights persistent male member odor, vitamin C helps give skin its tone and elasticity, and vitamin E is a natural hydrator, keeping manhood skin smooth and moisturized.

Does Adult Visual Content Damage the Tumescent Male Organ?

It’s definitely not headline news that there is a lot of adult visual content out there or that a lot of men enjoy utilizing it—sometimes a great deal of it. In recent years, there have been claims that exposure to adult visual content is dangerous to male organ health, with the idea promoted that it can cause problems in getting or maintaining a tumescent male organ. But is tumescence dysfunction actually a serious side effect of viewing adult visual content? A new study indicates that the claims are exaggerated.

Adult visual content use

Exactly how many people view adult visual content and how much is not known for sure, but there have been some studies and surveys that provide some possible answers. According to one source, 40,000,000 Americans visit adult sites on a regular basis, and 70% of men between the ages of 18 and 24 visit adult visual content sites monthly. Another survey, run by a non-profit Christian organization, found that almost 80% of men between 18 and 30 view adult content, and that 30% of those men are daily adult visual content consumers.

How accurate these numbers are is difficult to say. Even when surveys and studies provide anonymity, it is likely that at least some (and perhaps many) men may refuse to admit to adult visual content use or may understate their actual usage. But whatever the actual numbers, it’s safe to say that many men utilize adult visual content on a frequent basis.

The tumescent male organ issue

Some groups and individuals claim that an epidemic of adult content use is causing an epidemic of tumescence dysfunction among men, leading to fears of multitudes of men with serious tumescent male organ issues. A study published in a peer-reviewed medical journal looked at this issue.

The study looked at sensually active men whose records were drawn from three sources. Almost 150 undergraduate men in the U.S. were studied, along with almost 300 online survey participants and 433 men drawn from a crowdsourcing platform. As part of the study, all participants were assessed for tumescent male organ issues, as well as for adult visual content use.

When the scientists studied the data, they found no relationship between tumescence dysfunction and mere adult visual content use in general. They reported that, overall, the study participants had “very high levels of tumescence functioning.” In addition, serious tumescence issues were rare among sensually active adult content users.”

The scientists did find a link between those who defined their adult visual content use as problematic and tumescent male organ issues. However, they found that the evidence indicated that this was merely an association, not a causal relationship—in other words, it is unlikely that the tumescence dysfunction resulted from use of adult visual content.

While not conclusive, the study does indicate that, for most men, use of adult visual content in and of itself is not likely to lead to tumescence dysfunction, although there could be other sensual issues associated with its use. Men who find their level of adult content usage to be problematic should seek help from a mental health professional in order to resolve this issue.

Although adult visual content may not create a tumescent male organ issue for most men, it still pays to take steps to keep the organ in its best possible health to better enjoy its performance capabilities. Men should regularly apply a top-drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to better maintain general male organ health. The best creams will have several ingredients that promote healthy members, including L-carnitine and L-arginine. The former is a neuroprotective agent that helps to maintain proper male organ sensitivity, which may otherwise be damaged through rough handling or overuse. The latter is an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide and thereby better enables member blood vessels to expand properly for increased blood flow.

The Aging Member and “Manopause”: What Every Man Needs to Know

As a man ages, he becomes more distinguished, right? The silver foxiness in him comes out, he knows what makes a scotch good, and he has perfected his business portfolio. However, with all of those obvious benefits, he can also expect a dip in androgen, which can change the game a bit. It’s usually around the late 40s and early 50s that a man may experience some noticeable changes, and the previously young member morphs into an aging one. The aging member has learned much in life, but now starts the long stroll down low-androgen road. And for some men, that means something like “menopause.”

Is Male Menopause Really a Thing?

Male menopause, also known as “manopause,” should actually be called andropause because it’s the hormone androgen that starts to dwindle, similar to the way estrogen does in women. However, women experience this in a very short period of time, kind of like that roller coaster that just drops suddenly. Men, on the other hand, have a slow, ambling decline that will subtly go on the rest of their lives. For the few men who do experience this decline rather quickly, an estimated two percent, they will experience andropause.

What Changes Can an Aging Member Expect?

The notable elder statesman can expect some hurdles down low-androgen road, but with creativity and care, many of them can be maneuvered with remarkable grace and style.

1) Fatigue and Weakness – Men with low androgen reported unexplained fatigue and weakness more often than any other symptom. This can be little things like falling asleep while eating ice cream or larger things like no longer sweeping his woman up in his arms to carry her across the threshold of their bedroom for vigorous lovemaking. Which leads to…

2) “Not tonight, I’d like to read my new James Patterson novel” – With age, drive drops. It’s just the facts, Jack. For some men, it’s no biggie. However, for others, or for men in a relationship where it’s negatively impacting them, there are supplements that can help.

3) Loss of Energy – Again, the aging member needs some rest. He’s not retired, but he’s spending more time in his hammock than sinking holes on the golf course.

4) Loss of Muscle Mass – When androgen production declines, men can experience diminishing muscle mass. This also leads them to feel weaker (see #1). Good news is, there’s a multi-billion-dollar fitness industry that can help. To counteract male menopause, add more strength training and protein to a diet to pump up those muscles.

5) Singing the Blues – It’s more than just singing along to a little BB King or Muddy Waters. Depression can be highly influenced by the hormones, so when androgen dips, a man’s mood may as well. If that’s the case, see a doctor or mental health professional for help.

6) Member Dysfunction – This may be the aging member’s worst nightmare – early retirement. Member dysfunction, or MD, is the inability to maintain a firm stance during intimate activities. There are many ways to address MD, from western medication to eastern therapies. See a health practitioner to see which is best for you.

How to Care for the Aging Member

As a result of experiencing male menopause, a man may experience a lot of physical, emotional, and sensual changes. Seeing a therapist or a trusted friend to talk is a good way to keep things in line and to guarantee it doesn’t destructively affect self-worth or relationships.

Things that help curb the symptoms of menopause include getting adequate, restful sleep, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, participating in stress management techniques, and having a strong support circle. Self-care should be top of mind for men experiencing symptoms of male menopause.

Men with an aging member going through male menopause may want to try a specially formulated member health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to improve member health and function. These specials creams are made expressly for the member and contain vitamins such as A, B, D, and E, which moisturize, strengthen, and stop free radicals that cause early aging. A product that also contains vitamin C should be used, as it as it helps blood flow to the member, creating strong, very distinguished, hardness.

Procrasturbation: Self-Pleasuring as a Delay Tactic

Whether it’s a once-in-a-while thing or a part of his daily activities, self-pleasuring is something that almost all guys enjoy (whether they freely admit it or not). It has survived centuries of badmouthing and sometimes-hysterical denunciations for the simply reason that it feels good, produces positive results, is good for male organ health, and, in most cases, is harmless. Of course, like every activity, there can be times when its use can turn to misuse, and then there can be a problem. Such is the case when self-pleasuring turns into procrasturbation.

Procrastur-what?

It’s not in the official dictionary, but procrasturbation is more and more in use in common language. Although originally the term was developed to describe a pleasurable feeling that a person gets from putting off doing a task or job that they really don’t want to do, it has evolved into the much more specific idea of using self-pleasuring as a way to avoid doing that task or job.

The phrase comes about, of course, from combining self-pleasuring with procrastination (the tendency to put off doing an unwanted task or job). Everyone procrastinates, of course – it’s just for some people it’s a very rare thing whereas for others it’s a habit.

Psychologically speaking, procrastination makes sense. As an article in Psychology Today explains, “We are more likely to do things that we expect to succeed at and we value” and “We typically discount future rewards in favor of immediate rewards.” So when we view a task disfavorable – thinking it’s something we might fail at – we have an inclination to avoid it. And since we are more likely to grab at something that immediately rewards us rather than that which rewards us in the future, this heightens our willingness to procrastinate.

And it’s that sense of immediate reward that makes procrasturbation so attractive. Not only does a guy get to put off working on that long, boring report, but he gets to experience the intense pleasure of self-pleasuring as well – seemingly a win-win situation.

Not always

And in fact, on occasion, procrasturbation can indeed by a win-win situation. Stop working on a project that is giving a man grief and spending time self-stimulating his member can in some instances actually help in at least two ways. (1) Sometimes taking a break and steeping back away from a touch job can enable a person to return to it with a fresh eye and perspective, and (2) the chemicals released during self-pleasuring can relax a man so that he feels more refreshed when returning to the problem and also more focused.

However, often procrasturbation just adds to the problems created by regular procrastination – avoiding facing an inevitable problem, usually thereby reducing the amount of time left to work on the problem and creating a greater sense of tension and anxiety because there is now less time to deal with the situation.

If a person finds he engages in frequent procrasturbation, he may wish to consult with a professional. Dealing with procrastination part of procrastubation is usually the way to ease this situation and can lead to less stressful ways of working.

Sometimes procrasturbation results in such intense self-pleasuring that a guy may rub himself rather raw. Using a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can come in handy in such cases. Manhood skin that has been over-self-gratified may be rough and dry, and there by needs significant moisturization. Select a crème that contains a combination of moisturizing agents, such as vitamin E and natural shea butter. In addition, rough handling can lead to de-sensitization of the member. A crème with L-carnitine, which has neuroprotective properties that help maintain male organ sensation, is called for in such cases.

Self-gratification Myths Debunked

Choking the chicken. Waxing the surfboard. Jerkin’ the gherkin. There are a million ways to describe self-gratification and just about as many ways to do it. With an activity so prevalent, it’s odd that there is so much bad information in circulation. Let’s take a minute to talk about nearly every man’s favorite pastime: self-gratification.

What Is Self-gratification?

 

Self-gratification is when a man touches, strokes, and otherwise stimulates his member for pleasure. The hand is not the only thing a man can use for self-pleasure. Many men use a variety of sensual aides for stimulation or things they have made into their own pleasure devices (à la American Pie). Self-gratification can also include more than just the member. Many men also stimulate other erogenous zones such as the nipples, privates, perineum, and back. Usually, self-gratification ends with the release of seed, but it doesn’t need to. Plenty of men enjoy the journey and don’t need the release.

Self-gratification Myth #1: A Man Is a Pervert if He Pleasures Himself

 

Some cultures, societies, and religions demonize self-gratification and believe that if a man pleasures himself, he’s a deviant. However, it’s simply not true. Perversion is described as something that is abnormal and unacceptable. So, if a man pleasuring himself is something that society deems as unacceptable, then he may be perceived as a pervert. But the action of self-pleasure itself is not grounds for calling someone a pervert and, abnormal and unacceptable is a widely subjective designation, anyway.

Self-gratification Myth #2: It Causes Hairy Palms

 

Unless a man is a werewolf and only pleasures himself on the full moon, no, self-gratification does not cause hairy palms. It’s believed that this superstition hails from a book published in 1756 called the Onania. The intent of the book is to frighten people away from self-pleasure and other practices.

Self-gratification Myth #3: A Man Can Lose His Virginity by Pleasuring Himself

Nope. Virginity is not a self-serve sorta thing. Virginity is more a societal ideal than a physical act. It does not require someone of an opposing gender and for women does not require the breaking of the hymen (which often happens well before the act ever happens). Think of self-gratification as more ritual than biological.

Self-gratification Myth #4: Self-gratification Causes Health Problems

Actually, self-gratification can help a man’s health. It is a gateway to intimate health by helping men understand what they like and what they are comfortable with. Self-gratification is a free way to reduce stress and create a happier headspace. It also helps sleep quality and athletic (and sensual) performance.

Believe it or not, studies have shown that regular self-gratification with release is linked to a reduction in the possibility of prostate cancer. A 2016 study showed that men who released 21 times or more each month had a 20-percent decrease in the likelihood of prostate cancer. The only caveats to this are for men who wax the banana when hands are dirty or infected. Also, be sure to do a proper skin test prior to using any lubricant.

Self-gratification Managed

Now, although self-gratification is a healthy, normal activity, it does make sense to take a moment and talk about proper member care because it’s a delicate appendage, after all. First, be sure to give the member enough rest between sessions. Just like any other muscle, it needs a little recovery time. Also, be mindful of how tight the grip is because a too-tight death grip can cause friction burn and make the member less sensitive in both the short and long run.

Second, be sure to wash that mighty member often and after every self-love sesh. Use tepid water and a gentle cleanser like baby wash to gently and meticulously wash the member, being sure to suds up all the privates and retract the foreskin for a soft, squeaky clean. Also, rinse well and either air or towel dry with soft pats as opposed to rubbing the towel across the frisky fella.

Lastly, reward him with an indulgent, specially formulated member health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to nourish and rejuvenate the member. Creams with a natural base like shea butter or vitamin E that include other vitamins that promote manhood wellness, like A, C, and D, are essential for providing the member with vital nutrients and moisture for optimal member health. Look for creams that also have L-carnitine, a science-backed protector against peripheral nerve damage. A little love now will result in some good self-love later!

Obesity and Intimate Health

When talking about obesity, experts and armchair experts alike focus on the major diseases brought on by obesity and the surface issues of beauty and belonging. There’s a lot of discussion and information out there about diabetes, heart disease, and other issues related to obesity. But what about intimate health? Shouldn’t that conversation be happening, too? We think so. So, let’s talk about obesity, intimate health, and what people need to know.

Obesity and Intimate Health: What Are the Risk Factors?

Many men suffering from obesity may also find themselves dealing with a diagnosed medical male organ dysfunction or a psychological issue with having intimate relations. That’s not to say that all obese men have these problems; however, obesity certainly raises their risk.

Relations Stoppers: Medical

Men who have diseases such as high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes often experience issues with intimate health. In fact, men who have diabetes are 50 percent more likely to have member dysfunction (MD) than other men. Obesity contributes to excess narrowing and hardening of the blood flow, which makes it more difficult to swirl around a larger body and down to the member in the vigor that causes the hardness.

These diseases all contribute in some way to the prevention of either getting hard or maintaining the firmness. They damage the inner linings of the blood vessels of the member, which then causes a restriction in blood flow due to lack of dilation.

Obesity can also happen as the result of, and also reduce, the amount of androgen in the body (it’s the original double-edged sword here). Androgen starts taking a dip in men between ages 40 and 50. Androgen starts the whole hardness problem off and without it, or with less of it, drive diminishes.

Finally, the inevitable cause: age. With age, stamina decreases. The entire body ages, so it’s natural that a man who was used to getting hard four times in one day in his 20s may only have the urge or ability three times a week in his 60s.

Relations Stoppers: Psychological

Often overlooked, psychological reasons can cause huge waves in a man’s intimate health. Of course, issues such as depression and anxiety can physically manifest as MD. However, there are much more nefarious effects than MD.

An obese man may be able to produce and maintain hardness without trouble, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he isn’t having problems. Poor self-image is another reason an obese man may shy away from intimacy with a partner. Potential rejection, fear of another person’s unkind judgment, or a demoralizing sense of self can also lead an obese man to ignore his intimate health.

An Easy Reversal

Thankfully, research has shown that 95 percent of male organ dysfunction can be easily treated. First and foremost, a man must address the root cause of his problem, be that medical or mental. After that, he needs to take doctor recommendations and also make lifestyle changes.

Things such as adopting a healthy diet, brining more movement into each day, getting adequate sleep, and not smoking are all critical parts of reversing intimate dysfunction. Doctors also say that a weight reduction of as little as ten percent within a two-month period will vastly improve the issue. Mental health interventions such as therapy and medication may also be part of a treatment plan.

While making these changes, give the member a little extra care. Use an expressly formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to strengthen and protect the member. Look for creams that list L-carnitine as an ingredient, as it is a science-backed guardian against peripheral nerve damage. Find a crème with vitamins A and C to ward off bacteria that can result from sweating, and to boost collagen production while fighting against agents of early aging.

Member Dysfunction: What It Is and How Doctors Diagnose It

Member dysfunction (MD) affects many men at different points in their life. While it seems to be discussed ad nauseum, not all men really understand member dysfunction. Sure, the common knowledge is that it’s a male organ problem and can be easily cured with a little blue tablet. However, that’s not the truth of the matter. A lot of times, MD goes deeper into a man’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

Member Dysfunction Explained

The first point that needs to be made about MD is that it’s a persistent problem. This means that if at least 25 percent of the time a man cannot get or maintain hardness when he “summons” it, he may have member dysfunction. It is a chronic condition, which implies that it is consistent and, while it can be treated, it cannot, for simplicity’s sake, be cured.

Let’s also take a moment to debunk a common myth: men of any age can have member dysfunction. It is not something that only affects older men. That also means that not all older men have MD. However, the risk of getting MD increases significantly as a man ages.

Finally, it must be understood that member dysfunction doesn’t look the same for every man. Some can’t get hard at all, while others can get hard occasionally. Some men can get hard but can’t maintain it. There’s a lot of range to MD, but that also means there’s a wide range for testing and treatment.

What Factors Causes Member Dysfunction?

To understand the diagnosis process for MD, it’s important to understand that it can manifest due to a wide range of causes. For some men, it’s all psychological. Men who are depressed, feeling anxiety, or having body issues can have MD. The most common factor, however, is men who have a disease may be experiencing member dysfunction as a symptom of their initial or root disease. This includes diseases and afflictions such as:

- Diabetes

- Obesity

- High blood pressure

- High cholesterol

- Heart disease

- Stroke

- Multiple sclerosis

- Cancer

Member Dysfunction: Tests for Diagnosis

There are many options for diagnosing member dysfunction. The most common are:

1) Physical Exam. It makes sense to inspect the equipment for any bruising, excessive scar tissue, lumps, or an excessive curve in the member, which could be Peyronie’s disease, and to see what the sensation is like during the exam. This exam will include both the privates.

2) Blood Tests. A blood sample may be drawn to check for signs of heart disease, diabetes, low androgen levels, and other health conditions.

3) Urine test. Like blood tests, this test is also used to look for MD-related illnesses such as diabetes.

4) Psychological Exam. The doctor may ask questions to screen for depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues.

5) Ultrasound. The most physically invasive of the tests, ultrasound is performed by a specialist. He or she will hold a wand-like device over the blood vessels that supply blood to the member. A video image of the test will be given to the treating physician for review to see if blood flow is the issue. This test can also be done in concert with injections of medication into the member, which cause the stimulation of blood flow and production of hardness.

After testing, the doctor will make a diagnosis and a specific treatment plan. Most times, hardness will return with treatment.

Men who suffer from, or believe they may suffer from, MD may want to try a specially formulated sensual organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to promote blood flow for stronger, long-lasting hardness. These special creams are made specifically for male organ problems and concerns and contain vitamins such as A, B, D, and E, which provide healthy cellular function. In addition, men should use a product containing vitamin C, as it boosts blood flow to the member to assist in hardness and strength. Additionally, look for creams with L-arginine, a powerful vasodilator that promotes increased blood flow, which leads to sturdier firmness.

Got Member Pain? Here’s a Guide for When to Call the Doc and When to Just DIY

Member pain may be the worst sort of pain for a man. It can be an aching, throbbing, smelly, hot, angry experience that could have a man baffled as to the cause. Of course, the mind frantically jumps to partner-transmitted infections first, but there are scores of other reasons for member pain. Here are a few that are more common than men think and ways a man can deal with them. Happily, many are easy to fix and allow men to go from having a sore male organ to a happy member quickly.

Member Pain #1: Male Organ Injury

Got a lot of ouch in the privates without any rashes or infection? It’s likely the most common cause for pain, a male organ injury. It can happen virtually anywhere at any time. Everything from Saturday morning mud-football, sensual acrobatics, and accidentally walking into an open cabinet door can all lead to a male organ injury. Thankfully, most times it doesn’t require a visit to the doctor. If it persists more than a week, make an appointment.

For minor injuries, pain reliever and cool (not cold) compresses are the treatment. Also, give the member some rest and stay away from any activities that could endanger your little friend, including all forms of intimacy and self-pleasure, until he is all good again.

Member Pain #2: Smegma

Smelling a bit of funk in the junk? If it smells like sour cheese and sweat, it may be smegma. If there’s a grayish-white, cottage-cheesy discharge, it’s almost certain. Smegma is a naturally made cocktail of fatty acids, sterols, lipids, and dead cells. It also can attract dirt, sweat, and bacteria into the mix. When it overgrows, it brings on an unpleasant odor and a red, angry, sore male organ that spits fire when urinating. Pleasant, right?

Mostly a week of cleaning the big guy gently and consistently will dissolve the issue. If it doesn’t clear up after that, head to the doctor’s office.

Member Pain #3: Balanitis

If the member appears angry and infected, especially on the head, it may be balanitis. Balanitis is an infection of the foreskin and the head of the male organ. This can also be the “next step” once smegma overgrowth goes into warp speed. Head to the doctor for help. If a man can’t urinate, he needs to go to the ER.

The doctor can also check for phimosis and paraphimosis, which are two conditions that affect the foreskin and often have balanitis as a symptom.

Member Pain #4: Peyronie’s Disease

The trouble with the curve isn’t just a Clint Eastwood film, it’s a serious problem that can result in a very sore male organ. If the curve is 20 percent or more, it could be Peyronie’s disease, which affects more than 20 percent of men, usually those over the age of 40. Peyronie’s results from a buildup of scar tissue that forms in the male organ after years of use (or misuse).

If a man suspects he has Peyronie’s, he should see his primary care doctor or urologist for treatment.

Prevent Member Pain

The best way to prevent a sore male organ is to take good care of it on a daily basis. Practicing safe intimacy, knowing when to say when, and using protective gear when necessary are all great steps to prevent member pain.

One of the most basic ways to avert male organ pain is to adopt a regular hygiene ritual. It’s as simple as cleansing the member daily (as well as after sweat sessions of every kind) with a gentle cleanser and tepid water. Be sure to wash thoroughly, pulling the foreskin back gently to ensure a truly clean member.

After a good wash, rinse, and dry, use a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to seal in hydration and fortify the skin. Use creams with a variety of natural vitamins and nutrients to guard against bacteria and nerve damage, while building up collagen for skin elasticity and boosting blood for strong firmness.

Male Organ Protection and Oral Sensual Activity

Conduct a poll among men of their favorite kinds of sensual activity, and oral sensual activity would be right up there near the top. Indeed, for some men, oral sensual activity is their number one choice. Its pleasures and appeal are obvious, but for those in non-monogamous relationships, the male organ protection issue always arises when discussing forms of sensual activity. There is debate over how much concern there should be about male organ health when oral sensual activity comes into play. So, should a guy take any steps in terms of male organ protection where oral sensual activity is concerned?

Risks

As with penetrative sensual activity, oral sensual activity does carry some risk of passing social diseases from one partner to the next. For example, if a man’s member is orally pleased by someone who has a social disease in the throat, there is a significant risk that the social disease will be passed on to that man’s member. Similarly, if a man is orally servicing the member of a man with a social disease on the manhood, that social disease can be passed onto the man’s throat. In the latter case, the chances of a man contracting the social disease are increased further if he has issues such as bleeding gums or gum disease.

What about HIV? The risk of transmission is much, much lower through oral sensual activity than through fastidious or Female cfastidious sensual activity; there are few reported cases, and some researchers suspect that some cases attributed to oral sensual activity may actually have originated through fastidious sensual activity. However, the official consensus is that while the risk of HIV transmission through oral sensual activity is very low, it is still possible. It is further thought that the risk is even lower if there is no swallowing of the sensual emission. As with other social diseases, the risk of transmission is thought to increase if the person servicing the manhood has poor dental hygiene, such as bleeding gums or gum disease.

Male organ protection

Doctors recommend that latex protection be used to decrease further the risk of transmission of social diseases and HIV. However, in practice, it is thought that few men follow this recommendation. If such is the case, and if a man is sensually active outside of a mutually monogamous relationship, there are several things he can do to provide better male organ protection. These include:

- Limiting the number of sensual partners with whom he is active. The greater the number of partners, the higher the risk of transmission.

- Partnering with others who limit their number of partners. Similarly, if the individuals a man partners with also limit their number of partners, the member is better protected.

- Getting tested regularly. Sensually active men in non-monogamous relationships are encouraged to be tested for social diseases and HIV on a regular basis; every three months is the general recommendation. This enables social diseases to be caught early on so that treatment can begin. It is also advised that a man choose sensual partners who are similarly tested on a regular basis. (Remember, in many instances, it is possible to have a social disease and exhibit no symptoms; therefore, regular testing is the best bet for an early diagnosis.)

In general, oral sensual activity is much safer than other forms of sensual activity, and is especially so when latex protection is employed. But it is not without risks by any means.

Male organ protection goes beyond covering one’s bases where oral sensual activity is concerned and includes daily steps to maintain overall male organ health. One of the most important steps in that area is to regularly apply a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . For the best results, find a cream that features a wide range of healthy vitamins, including A, B5, C, D, and E. Ideally, such a cream will also include L-carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient that is helpful in maintaining manhood sensitivity, especially when a member regularly undergoes rough handling.

Tumescent Male Organ Benefit: A Better Memory?

It may seem strange, but male organ health is often impacted by things that might seem unrelated to the manhood—for example, aspects of diabetes can bring about a tumescent male organ problem. By the same token, there can be issues related to the member that can have an impact on seemingly unrelated other parts of the body. One of the more interesting examples of this involves an active tumescent male organ, as some scientists believe that people who have sensual activity more frequently have an improvement in their memory.

Studies

Scientists have good reason to draw this conclusion: they have studied the relationship between sensual activity and memory. For example, in one study, 78 individuals were asked about their frequency of sensual activity. They were then tested on their word memorization skills. Those who reported more frequent rates of sensual activity did noticeably better on the memory quiz.

As most people know, there are many who suffer some degree of memory loss as they age. A more recent large-scale study, from 2018, explored sensual activity and cognitive decline in older adults. In that study, more than 6000 people who were at least 50 years of age took a test that assessed their memory capabilities. They also provided information on a range of subjects, including their frequency of sensual activity. Two years later, the same subjects were given another memory test. After taking into account various variables, it was found that there was better memory performance in those who were more sensually active. (This is not to say that there was no memory decline—just that the decline was comparatively smaller among those more frequently engaging in sensual activity.)

Not proof

Of course, these and other studies have not demonstrated that it is actually sensual activity itself that causes an improvement in memory. It may be that people who engage more in sensual activity also have a stronger bond with a partner, which might give emotional ties that impact memory. Or perhaps they are more frequently involved in mental activities with these partners, such that their memories are thereby kept sharper.

However, there is reason to believe that sensual activity does play some role in improving memory. By using special technology, scientists can measure neurological activity in the hippocampus. The more neurological activity, the more “work” there is being done in that part of the brain—and in rats, that part of the brain is found to be more active when they are engaged in sensual activity.

Anecdotally, there is also evidence. Although there’s a common myth that men let their tumescent male organ think for them, the fact is that many men report having a clearer head and mindset after sensual activity. This does not correlate to memory, but it does support the idea of post-sensual activity neural activity.

The jury may still be out, but it pays to keep one’s tumescent male organ healthy just in case its activity does affect memory—and for purely sensual reasons as well. Daily use of a top-drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is one good way to keep the manhood in better shape. Men should look carefully at the labels on these creams and find one that includes both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The former is an amino acid that is involved in the production of nitric oxide. This in turn helps keep male organ blood vessels open and expanded for increased blood flow. L-carnitine has neuroprotective properties, which are helpful when a member that has been over-aggressively handled runs the risk of losing sensitivity.

Diet May Impact an Itchy Male Organ

“Oh no, not now!” That’s what goes through every man’s mind when an intense itchy male organ attack occurs, as it inevitably does, on a first date or while making an important presentation in front of all the people who make the salary and promotion decisions. An itchy member is an incredibly common male organ health issue, but that doesn’t change the fact that it causes substantial embarrassment when it happens. Since preventing an itchy male organ situation is desirable, there are some things a man can try – such as proper hygiene, wearing clean underwear, etc. – to reduce the chances of its occurrence. Another one of these strategies is to be careful about the diet he consumes.

By diet, we’re not talking about cutting down on food to lose weight; rather, we’re discussing the choice of foods consumed, as it’s possible that some foods may be “triggers” for an itchy male organ.

The following list contains some of the foods more commonly associated with itchy skin. It’s by no means comprehensive, and it’s also true that every man’s body is different. What causes one man to scratch like crazy may do absolutely nothing to another man. Still, all things being equal, these are foods to consider limiting if eliminating an itchy male organ is a goal.

Changes to diet to consider

- Salt. Too much salt can create an itchy male organ situation rather easily. That’s because salt absorbs water, leading to skin dehydration—and dry skin tends to be itchy skin. So, a first rule is for men who heavily salt everything to cut down on their salt.

- Eggs. Eggs are often associated with skin itches, although exactly why is not clear.

- Seafood. Many men find that, as delicious as they may be, foods like crabs, shrimp, oysters, clams, and squid result in an itchy male organ. This restriction includes dishes in which seafood is only one ingredient of many, such as clam chowder.

- Foods with histamines. Histamines help prevent infection, but too many histamines lead to inflammation and itching. Cutting down on foods high in histamines – which includes spinach, eggplant, cheese, tuna, mackerel and red wine – can keep the itch away.

- Anything that causes an allergic reaction. This may seem like common sense, but many people eat foods they are allergic to—and are surprised when an itchy male organ (or rash or hives) later occurs. So, whether it’s peanuts, tomatoes, strawberries, or wheat, avoid any known or suspected foods that cause allergies.

Okay, so the foods listed above could cause an itchy male organ. Are there any changes to the diet that can help prevent itchy skin problems? Actually, yes. Foods that are rich in vitamins A, C, and E tend to give the body support to keep itchy skin at bay.

Most people know that citrus fruits tend to be rich in vitamin C, so eating oranges and grapefruits is good, as is consuming kiwi, cabbage, and broccoli. For vitamin A, men who are not allergic to eggs or milk can get a good amount there, or they can supplement with liver, cantaloupe, or sweet potatoes. Vitamin E is found in nuts, but many people have nut allergies, so they should instead opt for corn, spinach, olives, or wheat germ.

Fighting an itchy male organ through changes in the diet is an excellent step, as is utilizing a top-notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) for the same reason. As luck would have it, the best creams contain the very same vitamins already discussed as being beneficial for preventing an itchy male organ: vitamins A, C, and E. In addition to the above benefits, these vitamins offer other plusses as well. Vitamin A fights persistent male member odor, vitamin C helps give skin its tone and elasticity, and vitamin E is a natural hydrator, keeping manhood skin smooth and moisturized.

Does Adult Visual Content Damage the Tumescent Male Organ?

It’s definitely not headline news that there is a lot of adult visual content out there or that a lot of men enjoy utilizing it—sometimes a great deal of it. In recent years, there have been claims that exposure to adult visual content is dangerous to male organ health, with the idea promoted that it can cause problems in getting or maintaining a tumescent male organ. But is tumescence dysfunction actually a serious side effect of viewing adult visual content? A new study indicates that the claims are exaggerated.

Adult visual content use

Exactly how many people view adult visual content and how much is not known for sure, but there have been some studies and surveys that provide some possible answers. According to one source, 40,000,000 Americans visit adult sites on a regular basis, and 70% of men between the ages of 18 and 24 visit adult visual content sites monthly. Another survey, run by a non-profit Christian organization, found that almost 80% of men between 18 and 30 view adult content, and that 30% of those men are daily adult visual content consumers.

How accurate these numbers are is difficult to say. Even when surveys and studies provide anonymity, it is likely that at least some (and perhaps many) men may refuse to admit to adult visual content use or may understate their actual usage. But whatever the actual numbers, it’s safe to say that many men utilize adult visual content on a frequent basis.

The tumescent male organ issue

Some groups and individuals claim that an epidemic of adult content use is causing an epidemic of tumescence dysfunction among men, leading to fears of multitudes of men with serious tumescent male organ issues. A study published in a peer-reviewed medical journal looked at this issue.

The study looked at sensually active men whose records were drawn from three sources. Almost 150 undergraduate men in the U.S. were studied, along with almost 300 online survey participants and 433 men drawn from a crowdsourcing platform. As part of the study, all participants were assessed for tumescent male organ issues, as well as for adult visual content use.

When the scientists studied the data, they found no relationship between tumescence dysfunction and mere adult visual content use in general. They reported that, overall, the study participants had “very high levels of tumescence functioning.” In addition, serious tumescence issues were rare among sensually active adult content users.”

The scientists did find a link between those who defined their adult visual content use as problematic and tumescent male organ issues. However, they found that the evidence indicated that this was merely an association, not a causal relationship—in other words, it is unlikely that the tumescence dysfunction resulted from use of adult visual content.

While not conclusive, the study does indicate that, for most men, use of adult visual content in and of itself is not likely to lead to tumescence dysfunction, although there could be other sensual issues associated with its use. Men who find their level of adult content usage to be problematic should seek help from a mental health professional in order to resolve this issue.

Although adult visual content may not create a tumescent male organ issue for most men, it still pays to take steps to keep the organ in its best possible health to better enjoy its performance capabilities. Men should regularly apply a top-drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to better maintain general male organ health. The best creams will have several ingredients that promote healthy members, including L-carnitine and L-arginine. The former is a neuroprotective agent that helps to maintain proper male organ sensitivity, which may otherwise be damaged through rough handling or overuse. The latter is an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide and thereby better enables member blood vessels to expand properly for increased blood flow.

The Aging Member and “Manopause”: What Every Man Needs to Know

As a man ages, he becomes more distinguished, right? The silver foxiness in him comes out, he knows what makes a scotch good, and he has perfected his business portfolio. However, with all of those obvious benefits, he can also expect a dip in androgen, which can change the game a bit. It’s usually around the late 40s and early 50s that a man may experience some noticeable changes, and the previously young member morphs into an aging one. The aging member has learned much in life, but now starts the long stroll down low-androgen road. And for some men, that means something like “menopause.”

Is Male Menopause Really a Thing?

Male menopause, also known as “manopause,” should actually be called andropause because it’s the hormone androgen that starts to dwindle, similar to the way estrogen does in women. However, women experience this in a very short period of time, kind of like that roller coaster that just drops suddenly. Men, on the other hand, have a slow, ambling decline that will subtly go on the rest of their lives. For the few men who do experience this decline rather quickly, an estimated two percent, they will experience andropause.

What Changes Can an Aging Member Expect?

The notable elder statesman can expect some hurdles down low-androgen road, but with creativity and care, many of them can be maneuvered with remarkable grace and style.

1) Fatigue and Weakness – Men with low androgen reported unexplained fatigue and weakness more often than any other symptom. This can be little things like falling asleep while eating ice cream or larger things like no longer sweeping his woman up in his arms to carry her across the threshold of their bedroom for vigorous lovemaking. Which leads to…

2) “Not tonight, I’d like to read my new James Patterson novel” – With age, drive drops. It’s just the facts, Jack. For some men, it’s no biggie. However, for others, or for men in a relationship where it’s negatively impacting them, there are supplements that can help.

3) Loss of Energy – Again, the aging member needs some rest. He’s not retired, but he’s spending more time in his hammock than sinking holes on the golf course.

4) Loss of Muscle Mass – When androgen production declines, men can experience diminishing muscle mass. This also leads them to feel weaker (see #1). Good news is, there’s a multi-billion-dollar fitness industry that can help. To counteract male menopause, add more strength training and protein to a diet to pump up those muscles.

5) Singing the Blues – It’s more than just singing along to a little BB King or Muddy Waters. Depression can be highly influenced by the hormones, so when androgen dips, a man’s mood may as well. If that’s the case, see a doctor or mental health professional for help.

6) Member Dysfunction – This may be the aging member’s worst nightmare – early retirement. Member dysfunction, or MD, is the inability to maintain a firm stance during intimate activities. There are many ways to address MD, from western medication to eastern therapies. See a health practitioner to see which is best for you.

How to Care for the Aging Member

As a result of experiencing male menopause, a man may experience a lot of physical, emotional, and sensual changes. Seeing a therapist or a trusted friend to talk is a good way to keep things in line and to guarantee it doesn’t destructively affect self-worth or relationships.

Things that help curb the symptoms of menopause include getting adequate, restful sleep, eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, participating in stress management techniques, and having a strong support circle. Self-care should be top of mind for men experiencing symptoms of male menopause.

Men with an aging member going through male menopause may want to try a specially formulated member health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to improve member health and function. These specials creams are made expressly for the member and contain vitamins such as A, B, D, and E, which moisturize, strengthen, and stop free radicals that cause early aging. A product that also contains vitamin C should be used, as it as it helps blood flow to the member, creating strong, very distinguished, hardness.
