Low Drive in Men: Why it Happens and What to Do

Unfortunately, low drive in men is seen as an inevitable side effect of aging, but guys who are headed into their golden years are not always doomed to a loss of interest in a little under-the-sheets play. In fact, the average man may enjoy a hearty appetite for intimacy far into his older years. Conversely, a weak libido can affect younger men. Understanding the underlying causes is the key to overcoming this problem or avoiding it altogether. In the following sections, we will discuss the facts about decreased drive and what to do about it.

Does ED = Decreased Drive?

While it stands to reason that they are connected, low libido and a weak drive should not be put into the same category as reproductive dysfunction, as they are completely different medical issues. In fact, men who have ED may have a very powerful interest in intimacy – they are just not up to the task, so to speak. However, these conditions can co-exist, particularly in men who have cardiovascular disease or a systemic illness such as diabetes. Because of this, a doctor should always be the first stop in determining why you’re not feeling the urge as often.

What about Low T?

Hormones such as androgen do, indeed, play an important role in the ability to feel aroused. Men who have lower-than normal levels of androgen are much less likely to feel turned on or to engage in any sensual activity, even solo. Low T, as it is often called, can be caused by stress, certain medications (such as antidepressants and some blood pressure medications), and other medical factors. Treating these issues and/or switching medications can help put the pep back in your step.

Other hormonal factors

Interestingly enough, not only androgen, but also other hormones play a big role in the sensual arena. Low levels of thyroid hormone or very high levels of prolactin can impact androgen levels, leading to low T issues. Again, treating these medical concerns is the first step in overcoming low drive.

Mental factors

While men are often blamed for thinking with their male organ, rather than their brain, the brain actually plays a very important role in arousal. As such, men who are suffering from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety – conditions that occur in part due to altered brain chemistry, may not feel much like cuddling up with a partner. Likewise, a man who is experiencing relationship stress may not feel turned on by his partner. Therapy, either individual or for couples, can help address these concerns and allow a man to feel more like himself.

Male organ Care

Believe it or not, the confidence and sense of well-being that come from adequate self-care can go a long way toward making anyone – male or female – feel more attractive and sensual. For the average man, this can be accomplished through regular and thorough attention to male organ hygiene. Make sure to clean the area properly to keep it in tip top shape, then dry and moisturize your skin with a product made specifically for men, like a male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). This particular health creme is a super weapon, containing vitamins and nutrients essential to the wellbeing of private area skin, like vitamin C, for collagen production, and Shea butter, which hydrates the skin leaving the area soft and smooth. Keep the male organ skin clean, dry, and hydrated for optimal health.

Self-pleasuring: Your Number-One Stress Management Technique

Given half a chance, it’s likely that many men reading this article could easily list half a dozen or more things in their life that tend to cause them stress – money issues, relationship problems, sensual worries, in-law conflicts, workplace drama, sibling rivalries, political anxieties, etc. And those are just some of the big general topics, any one of which could have many much more specific sub-topics. Stress is far too big a part of many men’s lives, and it can have a negative impact on their general health, as well as on their male organ health, too. Thus, it really pays to take steps to limit stress as much as possible. There are numerous ways in which a person can try to mitigate stress; one of the more enjoyable ways is through self-pleasuring.

Why self-pleasuring

Many a man has noticed that his whole body feels more relaxed and that his mood is enhanced after engaging in a pleasurable self-pleasuring session. Why does self-pleasuring help a guy to de-stress? Basically because sensual activity in all its forms, including self-pleasuring, tends to release dopamine (a chemical which relaxes the body and produces a sense of pleasure) as well as oxytocin, which helps a person better deal with anxiety.

But there are other ways that self-pleasuring can help de-stress a person. When a guy self-stimulates just before bed, he is much more relaxed and more likely to fall asleep more quickly – and that can be especially helpful if a man tends to lie awake tossing and turning at night thinking about work issues or other problems.

In addition, self-pleasuring often helps lower blood pressure, at least temporarily, and blood pressure tens to shoot up during high stress times.

Tips

Self-pleasuring alone is not likely to help a man totally manage his stress – and there certainly are times when a man simply does not have the luxury of self-gratifying. But for those interested in incorporating self-pleasuring into a stress management approach, the following may prove helpful.

Determine if it needs to be scheduled. For some men, the beauty of self-pleasuring is that it can be “slotted in” to his schedule at the spur of the moment. If he becomes aware of high tension, he can sneak away to the men’s room for a quickie and find instant relief. But some men benefit from scheduling it, especially if they are going through a period of consistently high stress. In such cases, they may make it part of their daily wind-down routine or save it for bedtime. They may also schedule it in for, say, the middle of the afternoon, using the promise of a self-pleasuring break as enticement for them to soldier on with their work until break time is here.

Leave the guilt behind. Although there is much greater acceptance of self-pleasuring today, many men still feel some degree of guilt when they self-stimulate. This can diminish the degree of stress relief they feel from self-pleasuring. Such men may find benefit in reminding themselves that almost every man self-fondles and that it is a perfectly normal activity. Some may find it helpful to repeat a few affirmations – “I am a man, and self-pleasuring is one way I celebrate my manhood” or “I deserve to self-stimulate; I am using self-pleasuring not just as a source of pleasure (of which I am deserving) but as a way to maintain my health” – before starting to self-gratify.

Enjoy it. The more that a man is able to feel uninhibited while self-fondling, the more likely he is to de-stress. If in a private place, he should to moan, shout, curse, wriggle and writhe to his heart’s content.

Self-pleasuring can help to relieve stress, but too aggressive a style can result in rawness – and the need for a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Select a crème with both a high end emollient (like shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) to soothe overworked member skin. And one with L-carnitine can help protect manhood sensation so it is not diminished by aggressive fondling.

Male Organ Odor: The Underwear Connection

The lights are low, the music is seductive, and all the moves thus far have been perfectly timed. The man is thinking that things couldn’t have gone more perfectly as he removes his pants, giving his partner the big reveal at last. Unfortunately, the unveiling of his glorious manhood is ruined by the sudden arrival of a distinctly unpleasant aroma – and it’s wafting directly from that newly revealed manhood. Yes, deadly male organ odor has struck again, filling a potential partner’s head with dire imaginings concerning male organ health and causing them to suddenly remember an early morning appointment and rush off. Fighting persistent male organ odor is crucial, which means understanding its causes – one of which is very definitely related to one’s underwear.

Not just underwear

Clearly, male organ odor has a number of causes. For one thing, odors form in areas that are damp, warm and dark, and that describes the male organ to a “t.” Thick thatches of midsection hair make the midsection warm naturally, and keeping the member buried beneath both pants and underwear only adds to the heat quotient – which in turn makes the manhood and friends sweat, releasing bacteria which makes unwanted male organ odor.

But while underwear is not the only culprit, it still plays into the mix – so guys need to take underwear-conscious steps to help decrease the level of male organ odor.

Tips

So what can a guy do in terms of underwear and male organ odor?

- Don’t wear day-olds – or worse. Look, every guy has been there: they wake up, find that somehow there’s no clean underwear even though they know they did laundry just a couple of days ago. After a quick sniff test, they choose what they hope is the least aromatic pair and make a resolve to do a load of laundry that night. In an emergency, a guy does what he has to do – but if possible coupling is on the line, that just won’t do. Make a habit of doing laundry BEFORE getting down to the last pair of briefs. And if he has no clean underwear options, a guy should resist the temptation to borrow a pair from his roommate or best friend – unless they are a brand new pair that has never been worn before.

- Change it when needed. On a normal day, most guys can wear the same pair of boxers or briefs all day. But if he sweats a lot – either naturally or because he was out shooting hoops or working out at the gym – a change of underwear is needed (not to mention a shower, hint-hint). And to be on the safe side, if he’s going out on a date or working the bars, he should change beforehand, even if it’s just been a “normal sweat” day.

- Make the right choice. Choosing the right underwear can help diminish male organ odor. For example, wearing loose-fitting boxers rather than tight briefs can cut down on heat and sweat. And natural fibers like cotton rather than synthetics can also allow the manhood to “breathe” better.

- Go naked. Ideally, a man should “air out” his member for a couple of hours every day. Some housing arrangements make this difficult, but many men sleep naked as a way of airing the equipment out.

Making wise underwear choices can help diminish persistent unwanted male organ odor; it also helps if a guy is regularly applying a top notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) as part of his male member care regimen. The best crème will contain vitamin A, which has anti-bacterial properties which can help fight that darn male organ odor. Ideally, the crème should also contain L-arginine, an amino acid which helps produce nitric oxide and thereby enables manhood blood vessels to more properly expand when necessary.

Male Organ Bumps May Be from Manscaping

Manscaping – shaving the hair on and around the male organ and sacks has become much more common in recent years. Some men like to manscape for purely aesthetic reasons, as they (or their partners) believe it makes their manhood look even better. Some men get into manscaping for more practical reasons. For example, a partner may be object to giving oral sensual activity because the hairs get in their mouth, or all of the hair may make the midsection too hot, causing excess sweating and adding to member odor. In general, manscaping has no male organ health issues, provided one practices enough care with the razor. But in some cases, it may lead to male organ bumps – in a roundabout way.

Why male organ bumps?

Why should shaving the thatch of hair on and around the male organ and sacks bring about male organ bumps? There are a couple of reasons.

One, sometimes the skin is irritated by the shaving process or is allergic to one or more of the shaving products used. In most cases or skin irritation, keeping the skin moisturized will help the irritation to go away within a few days – sometimes a few hours. The same is true of minor allergic reactions to shaving products. If the reaction persists for several days, it’s a good idea to see a doctor. Many people experience these reactions from their first go at manscaping but don’t for subsequent shaves; others may find that these male organ bumps come about each time they shave.

Two, often the bumps that result around the midsection from manscaping are due to ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs can happen at any place on the body, not just in the midsection. And while they can occur naturally, more frequently they are the result of shaving.

Ingrown

After a hair has been shaved, it starts to grow again, usually poking onto the skin and growing upwards. But sometimes the hair will start curling back before it breaks through the surface and continue growing underneath the skin. (This is more common with midsection hair, which tends to be coarse and curly to begin with.)

As it grows beneath the skin, the body interprets it as a foreign object that isn’t supposed to be there. Swelling, redness, itching and sometimes pain result – and the combination of the hair growing underneath the surface and the body’s response to it creates the male organ bumps.

Treatment

Most of the time ingrown hairs resolve on their own, but if they are persistent, a guy may need to do something about them. Dermatologists recommend that the first step is to stop manscaping – at least in the area where the bumps are occurring. Continuing to shave over ingrown hairs will simply irritate the area.

A guy can also apply a warm compress to the area, which can soothe it and also help pores to open up so an escape route may become available for the hair. When the hair starts to peep out, use tweezers to grasp it and try to pull more of the ingrown portion out into the open. Keep the area well moisturized.

If the ingrown hair has become infected, a doctor may prescribe a steroid cream or an antibiotic.

Male organ bumps from manscaping are an annoyance and can sometimes cause itching and soreness. Regular use of a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help make a difference. Selecting a crème with a combination of moisturizing agents, such as vitamin E and shea butter, can help keep the skin properly hydrated, which also diminishes itchiness and soreness in the area. The crème should also include vitamin A, the properties of which can help to gently clear away dead skin cells, better enabling ingrown hairs to break through the surface.

Male Organ Rash Caused by Tinea Versicolor

A skin rash can may an otherwise healthy looking body, and when it is localized as a male organ rash, it can give pause to would-be admirers of said member – enough to often make them decide not to pursue further engagement with the owner of said member While a male organ rash may indeed sometimes indicate a specific male organ health issue, often it is more of a dermatological concern. Such is the case if tinea versicolor is the cause of the male organ rash.

What is tinea versicolor?

Also saddled with the name pityriasis versicolor, tinea versicolor is a fungal infection. (Jock itch, another fungal infection, also belongs in the tinea family.) Tina versicolor is caused by a yeast, which is a kind of fungus.

Many people hear about yeast being on the manhood and find it a gross thought. In fact, yeast commonly do live on the body; it’s just that they don’t often create a situation, like a rash, so most people are unaware of them.

With tinea versicolor, the yeast impedes proper pigmentation. Where the yeast infection is present, the skin is a different shade or color than the skin surrounding it (creating the rash-like effect). Most often with tinea versicolor, the affected skin is lighter than the skin around it, but not always: there have been many cases where the affected skin was darker. It tends to have a very patchy look, often with large areas of the skin forming one large patch.

Tinea versicolor typically appears on the upper trunk, arms and neck, but it can appear anywhere on the body and has appeared as a male organ rash. It would be unusual for it to appear solely as a male organ rash; rather, it would most likely spread at least to the area surrounding the member, and very likely may also have appeared on the torso or other body parts in addition to on the manhood.

Over time, the rash can become scaly and scabby looking. It may also grow itchy, sometimes intensely so. The rash also becomes more pronounced if the skin around it develops a tan (not an issue with the male organ rash except for those who sunbathe nude.)

Causes and treatment

Tinea versicolor develops when the yeast which are already occurring naturally on the skin decide to overproduce. This can be brought on by a number of causes. For example, hormonal changes can be a trigger, so this often happens among pubertal individuals or those experiencing a later change in hormone levels. Hot humid weather can also bring it about, as can skin that is too oily. And people with a weakened immune system are more prone to this disorder.

There are a number of over-the-counter antifungal medications that a doctor may recommend to treat tinea versicolor. If the case is severe or resistant, a prescription strength medication may be required.

Typically, a patient will be required to take medication periodically even after the rash has gone, in order to help prevent its recurrence.

If the male organ rash becomes scaly, it may cause some discomfort during sensual activity, including self-pleasuring.

When a man has a male organ rash, even if from sources other than tinea versicolor, his member skin often becomes overly dry. He can help address this problem by daily application of a top notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Look for a creme that contains both a high end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). This can help create a “moisture lock” to help trap moisture in the affected area. In addition, a crème with a potent antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid can help strengthen delicate member skin by fighting excess free radicals and the damage they can cause.

Male Organ Facts and Fiction

Just because a person owns an impressive car doesn’t mean he knows everything about the intricate workings of its engine or the truth about how many miles per gallon it really gets. For the same reason, a man may have a member but that doesn’t mean he’s up to speed on all male organ facts – especially when those facts deal with male organ health. Yet separating male organ facts from fiction is important in truly understanding one’s manhood and knowing how to treat it.

See if you can tell which of the following are male organ facts vs. fiction.

“Once the manhood is in a rigid tumescent state, it loses flexibility.”

This would seem like an obvious fact to any man who has observed his proudly tumescent member – but in fact it is fiction. While the tumescent member does become very hard, it still maintains a degree of pliability – such that scientists have found that many times it can become almost boomerang-shaped if a given sensual position requires it.

“More men are growers rather than showers.”

That is a fact. According to a survey, 79% of men are growers (that is, their manhood is relatively short when soft but expands significantly when tumescent) and 21% are showers (that is, their soft member is relatively long and expands less significantly when tumescent.)

“The head developed to help displace competitor’s male seed.”

Surprisingly, that’s fact not fiction. The shape of the male organ head helps to “scoop out” male seed which may have been deposited by a previous lover. It was more of an issue during caveman days, but a fact is a fact.

“A guy can only rupture his member during wild partner sensual activity.”

That’s fiction, actually. It turns out that a male organ rupture more often occurs when a man is vigorously self-pleasuring than when having sensual activity with a partner.

“The phrase “use it or lose it’ applies to the member.”

That’s a fact. The manhood needs to be “exercised’ to stay healthy – whether through self-stimulation or partner-based sensual activity. Basically, the smooth muscle in the member requires oxygen to stay healthy, and it gets that oxygen when loads of fresh blood rush into the manhood during the tumescence phase. So self-gratifying or having sensual activity helps the male organ stay healthy and in better shape.

“Manhood sensitivity tends to decrease with age.”

Sadly, a fact. As a man ages, the sensory threshold of his member – that is, the point at which he is able to sense the slightest degree of sensation – lessens. This can have several potential impacts, from making tumescence more difficult to attain and/or maintain to delaying a man’s ability to release seed.

“Male seed is not a diet drink.”

A fact. Some years ago, it was batted about that male seed was a low-calorie, low-carb beverage. In fact, it is mostly fructose – and considering the small amount of male seed typically released at one time, it is relatively high in calories and in carbs. So claiming that it’s good for a person watching their figure is actually a lousy argument for convincing someone to give a guy oral sensual activity.

“About 12% of men have a micromember.”

Fiction – less than 1% of men have a manhood that actually qualifies as a micromember. However, one study found that 12% of men were worried their organ was so small that it was a micromember – indicating again that many men have unrealistic ideas about male organ size.

One of the more important male organ facts (And this is no fiction) is that men need to take steps to maintain male organ health. An excellent way to do this is to daily apply a first class male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). It pays to look for a crème that contains both L-carnitine and L-arginine. The former is neuroprotective and can help protect the manhood from diminished sensitivity. And the latter is an amino acid which helps blood vessels expand, so that more oxygen-rich blood can reach the smooth muscle when needed.

Everything a Man Ever Wanted to Know About Male Emission

Male emission seems like a pretty simple thing. However, it’s a fairly complex process that only really gets investigated when problems like ED pop up. Every man should know the interworking of what needs to happen and what then occurs when men emission to have a better knowledge of self. Male emission happens as the result of a series of steps involving multiple parts of the body (not just the male organ!) working together. Let’s break down what happens from soup to nuts (pun completely intended) when a man gets that special feeling and wants to get it on.

Male Emission Step One: Stimulation

Whether he’s walking down the street, at dinner with a date, or just home alone, the whole process begins at stimulation. The man hears, sees, or feels something that gets Barry White to start singing in his brain, and then the brain sends a sensual telegram down the spinal cord to the reproductive organs which then fill with blood, causing a him to become hard. The privates then pull in toward the body as tension in the general area intensifies, which is why some men feel their heartbeat in their privates when they get hard.

Fun fact: In the process of getting it up, blood goes up to 50 times faster than its normal speed to spring a man’s member to life.

All of this action is fueled by androgen, a hormone responsible for drive and is produced in the reproductive organs. While we’re visiting the reproductive organs, let’s remember that’s where millions of reproductive travelers are made each day. Once they grown, they mingle with white, protein-rich fluids which keep them safe and healthy until male emission. This little man sauce is commonly known as seed.

Male Emission Step Two: Plateau

This is the stage in which a man prepares to release and can last up to two minutes. Muscle tension in the area increases even more and spontaneous body movements, predominantly in the pelvis, begin to take over. A man's heart rate also surges to 150 to 175 beats per minute. Pre-emission, a clear fluid, may also make an appearance from the head of the male organ. This is not only signals that stimulation is high and emission is nearing, but also biologically changes the pH balance of the urethra to improve survival.

This stage is commonly identified by phrases like “Don’t stop,” and praise to a higher universal being.

Male Emission Step Three: Emission

There are two parts to emission. The first is the plateau of pleasure and the second is release. In emission, a man reaches what is known colloquially as the point of no return. Fluid has made its way up the urethra and is ready to meet the world. Male emission happens in a series of intense contractions in both the muscles of the member and at the base of the rectum. Involuntary thrusting has also been known to happen in this stage. At the end of this, the nerves in the male organ send a love note back to the brain telling it to feel pleasure.

Male Emission Step Four: Resolution and Refraction

Now that the confetti has been thrown, the party starts to die down. The male organ empties of blood and the tumescence retreats. Tension fades, which causes many men to feel sleepy, or at minimum, a little drowsy and looking for a nap.

After resolution, men enter a period of time called the refractory period, in which the male organ calms and cannot be roused for a second round for a bit. The refractory period can last a few minutes to nearly an entire day, depending on age and health.

Male Emission: Keeping the Member Ready to Go!

A healthy diet, regular exercise, stress emission, and regular erections are all great ways to achieve high-level male organ health. Another way is to incorporate a hygiene ritual that includes thorough and regular cleansing of the male organ and genital area with a mild cleanser, being sure to feel around for any bumps or bruising. After cleansing the skin, a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) helps to not only keep the skin moisturized but strong as well. Using a crème with special nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D and E and key amino acids like L-Carnitine and L-Arginine keep the male organ young, strong, and protected from nerve damage and free radicals while promoting optimum blood flow. Be sure to apply a quality crème daily for best results.

Male Organ Protection for the Winter Naturist

Many people find the naturist lifestyle very liberating. They often extoll the virtues of experiencing the world around them directly on their skin, without the artificial barrier of clothing between them and Nature. The way the sunshine feels, how they experience a breeze, the difference between various kinds of grasses rubbing against the skin - all are part of the naturist life for many. But during the winter, the naturist may need to take precautions – and men may need to guard their male organ health from winter-related issues by practicing proper male organ protection strategies.

Summer too

Not that the male naturist doesn’t need to worry about male organ protection in the warmer months. When the sun is blazing, member skin needs to be protected from sunburn just as skin elsewhere on the body. And the male organ that brushes against poison ivy or poison oak is not going to be a happy male organ.

Activities

But in the winter, the major male organ health hazard becomes the intensely cold weather. Because of the cold (and ice and snow), many naturists retire to indoor-only naturist activities until warm weather returns. But there are many organized outdoor naturist events during winter. Polar plunges – jumping into ice cold waters – are popular, and hardly any more dangerous than those plunges in which people wear swimsuits. Naked skiing, sledding and snowboarding is increasingly popular. Some hardy souls still enjoy playing volleyball in the buff in winter, and it’s not unusual for a group of naturist friends to get together for an impromptu basketball game. And, of course, simply going for a walk naked (provided it is in enclosed grounds) is an option at any time of the year.

Male organ protection

Since some male naturists will continue to enjoy outdoor activities at least some time during winter, what are some male organ protection tips they should follow?

- Limit exposure. Just as delicate manhood skin shouldn’t be exposed to brutally harsh sunlight for an extended period of time in the summer, so should it not be exposed to sub-freezing temperatures for very long. Moderation is the key – and the colder it is, the less time the member should be out and about.

- Warm it up. Before venturing outdoors, warm the member up. This may mean waiting until the last minute to disrobe or wearing snug, warm briefs until just venturing out. Outdoors, it may pay to rub the manhood occasionally to keep it warm. This is easy to do when alone or with understanding friends; however, since rubbing the male organ often brings about tumescence and is often viewed as self-stimulating, this is not really an option in naturist groups, where manhood manipulation is frowned upon.

- Bring cover-up. It may pay to have some form of cover-up along – a robe, a towel, a pair of underwear – just in case the cold becomes unbearable and one has wandered too far away from shelter.

- Watch out for signs of frostbite. The last thing a guy wants is a frostbitten member, so know the warning signs. If the manhood gets prickly and then numb; turns very red or then turns white, pale or bluish; or turns hard and waxy, then frostbite may have occurred. Basically, if prickliness or numbness occurs, or if the member gets unnaturally reddened, it’s time to get inside before real damage occurs.

The male naturist who practices proper male organ protection should also be sure to include in his regimen the daily application of a top drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Winter weather can dry out skin, so a crème that includes a combination of moisturizers, such as shea butter and vitamin E, is an excellent choice. The skin will be further protected if the crème also contains a mighty antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, to protect it from the ravages brought about by unwanted oxidative stress.

Five Causes of Sore Male Organ Pain and How to Cope

Private area pain can strike any part of the male organ, be it the sturdy shaft or the hypersensitive head. Sore male organ pain, therefore, is no joking matter and needs to be dealt with fast. Sometimes it can be caused by a major medical issue, but most times it’s a small trauma that leaves the male organ reeling. Let’s look at the most common causes of sore male organ pain and how to treat them.

Injury

The most common cause of a sore male organ pain, an injury can affect the male organ the same way it affects any other part of the body. Things like car accidents and contact sports play can be accidental ways to injure the male organ. However, things like rough intimacy, sensual aids which fashion a ring around the male organ to keep blood in for a prolonged period of time and inserting foreign items into the urethra are entirely controllable activities that can lead to both minor and serious injury. Be sure to wear appropriate protective gear for sports and maintain a safe sensual play environment for other extracurricular activities.

In minor cases, a little rest, cool compresses, and pain reliever are recommended. By the way, rest means no play, with a partner or solo, until everything is back to good. In the case of major injury, seek medical care.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Think a man can’t get a UTI? Think again! When bacteria invade the urinary tract, it can lead to a painful infection. Men with a weakened immune system, are uncircumcised, or have an enlarged prostate are at a greater risk of developing UTIs. Some sensual practices like having intimate contact with someone who has an infection, as well as fastidious intimacy can also lead to a UTI.

See a doctor for diagnosis and medication.

Balanitis

Balanitis is an infection of the foreskin and the head of the male organ. While uncircumcised men are at a greater risk for this issue as well, any male that doesn’t properly and diligently wash his male organ. The male organ will take on an angry red hue and can be quite painful. Most times a trip to the doctor is necessary.

To prevent balanitis, employ a simple hygiene routine like the one listed at the end of the article.

Phimosis and Paraphimosis

Happening mostly to uncircumcised men, it’s when the foreskin is too tight and can’t be pulled away from the head of the male organ. This can also affect males who have balanitis or private area scarring resulting from an injury. Medical attention is necessary.

A similar condition, paraphimosis, happens if the foreskin can be pulled back from the male organ but then can’t retract to its normal, upright position. This is a real medical emergency because it can stop a man from urinating and result in private area tissue death.

Peyronie’s Disease

They say to turn into a curve, but that’s hard when a man has a private area curve of 20 percent or greater. Peyronie’s Disease develops when an inflammation causes a tinny sheet of scar tissue, called plaque, to form along the upper or lower ridges of the shaft of the male organ. This scar tissue resides right next to the same tissue that hardens during an erection resulting in a dramatic bend in the male organ which can be quite painful. It affects over 20 percent of men and they are usually over the age of 40 when it’s noticed.

There are several ways to treat Peyronie’s Disease. Private area rejuvenation done via plasma-rich platelet shots have be shown to help, as has surgery. The best course of action is to partner with a urologist experienced in Peyronie’s Disease for treatment.

Prevent Sore Male Organ Pain

Some of the best ways to prevent private area pain is to practice healthy male organ behaviors. Practice safe intimacy with both latex barriers and honest conversations to avoid infections and disease. Also, be observant of intimate practices that may lead to injury.

One of the easiest ways to prevent sore male organ pain is to adopt a regular hygiene ritual. Simply cleanse the male organ daily (more if used) with a mild cleanser and warm water. Be sure to thoroughly cleanse the entire area and pull foreskin back gently to ensure a squeaky-clean male organ everywhere.

After cleansing the skin, 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 lock in hydration and strengthen the skin. Find crèmes with a wide array of vitamins and nutrients to protect against bacteria and nerve damage, while providing the skin with collagen and blood flow boosting properties.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: 8 Ways that Work

Male organs, like all living things, emanate an odor. However, some Johnsons have a serious case of 1970’s funk. There are several reasons why a perfectly normal male organ can quickly morph into a stinky member in what seems like seconds. Here’s a pro’s list of how to get rid of male organ odor.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #1 Observe Pee Etiquette

First, let’s address all men who urinate (that should be pretty much everyone). A shake may not be adequate, guys. After peeing, wipe off the member, otherwise little droplets of urine make their way to underwear. Then the member bakes in the heat of the groin and those little droplets of urine become a big-time stink fest.

For gentlemen who sport a non-cut member, be sure to pull back the foreskin when urinating to prevent from urine getting underneath foreskin causing a not so fragrant odor and irritation.

Pubic hair traps all sorts of things like bacteria, oils, urine, and other fluids and emissions. By keeping the hair down there trimmed, there’s less to preserve less-than-stellar odors. It looks nice too.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #3 Have a Talk BEFORE Intimacy

Partner Transmitted Infections can definitely lead to a stinky member, among other much more serious consequences. Have a talk with a partner prior to intimate contact. If a partner seems to be symptomatic of a PTI and hasn’t disclosed it, stop contact immediately.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #4 Latex barrier and Creme Check!

Be sure to continue the practice of safe intimacy past the very important convo as recommended in #3. Always use latex barriers that protect against PTI when sensually intimate. Also, be sure to use a water-based creme when creme is called for. Oil-based creme and DIY creme, also known as spit, can introduce bacteria into the member.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #5 After Intimacy Protocol

After doing the wild thing, sprint off to the bathroom to give your Jolly Roger a good cleaning. This helps remove bacteria and irritants from the member, as well as any extra…ummm…emissions which may have been left behind.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #6 Loosen Up…Your Drawers that is

For most men, their member is ensconced in underwear or even just pants the majority of the hours of each day. That means his sausage and beans spend a lot of time marinating in a warm, sweaty, smelly environment. Be sure to invest in good quality cotton underwear or equally good dry-wicking underwear to get the area dry. Also, the tighty-whities don’t really need to be tight, in fact, they shouldn’t be. Give the member some room to air out and just hang. This not only prevents a stinky member but protects against peripheral nerve damage as well.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #7 Check for Infection

Some non-STI related infections can cause a man’s nose to curl up. Things like urinary tract infections and yeast infections emit a foul odor and can be quite painful and dangerous. UTIs happen when bacteria have found its way to the urinary tract and often takes on a fishy smell. Yeast infections happen when there is an overgrowth of naturally occurring yeast in the body and is demarked by a moldy smell. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment if it’s a first time offense.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #8 Have a Daily Hygiene Regimen

We saved the best for last! Clean that member, mister! Cleanse the member daily (more if needed) with warm water and a mild cleanser. Be sure to retract the foreskin and give the entire area a gentle, yet thorough washing. When done, rinse well. Pat dry with a soft towel (never rub) or air dry.

Next, apply 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 the area. Crèmes like this include essential nutrients like vitamin A, which is an antibacterial agent, and vitamin C, which promotes healthy cellular function, collagen building, and freshens the member. Add to that several other vitamins and amino acids for strengthening skin and boosting blood flow all wrapped up in a silky Shea butter and moisture-preserving vitamin E. No one will ever accuse a man who follows this regimen of having a stinky member every again!

Low Drive in Men: Why it Happens and What to Do

Unfortunately, low drive in men is seen as an inevitable side effect of aging, but guys who are headed into their golden years are not always doomed to a loss of interest in a little under-the-sheets play. In fact, the average man may enjoy a hearty appetite for intimacy far into his older years. Conversely, a weak libido can affect younger men. Understanding the underlying causes is the key to overcoming this problem or avoiding it altogether. In the following sections, we will discuss the facts about decreased drive and what to do about it.

Does ED = Decreased Drive?

While it stands to reason that they are connected, low libido and a weak drive should not be put into the same category as reproductive dysfunction, as they are completely different medical issues. In fact, men who have ED may have a very powerful interest in intimacy – they are just not up to the task, so to speak. However, these conditions can co-exist, particularly in men who have cardiovascular disease or a systemic illness such as diabetes. Because of this, a doctor should always be the first stop in determining why you’re not feeling the urge as often.

What about Low T?

Hormones such as androgen do, indeed, play an important role in the ability to feel aroused. Men who have lower-than normal levels of androgen are much less likely to feel turned on or to engage in any sensual activity, even solo. Low T, as it is often called, can be caused by stress, certain medications (such as antidepressants and some blood pressure medications), and other medical factors. Treating these issues and/or switching medications can help put the pep back in your step.

Other hormonal factors

Interestingly enough, not only androgen, but also other hormones play a big role in the sensual arena. Low levels of thyroid hormone or very high levels of prolactin can impact androgen levels, leading to low T issues. Again, treating these medical concerns is the first step in overcoming low drive.

Mental factors

While men are often blamed for thinking with their male organ, rather than their brain, the brain actually plays a very important role in arousal. As such, men who are suffering from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety – conditions that occur in part due to altered brain chemistry, may not feel much like cuddling up with a partner. Likewise, a man who is experiencing relationship stress may not feel turned on by his partner. Therapy, either individual or for couples, can help address these concerns and allow a man to feel more like himself.

Male organ Care

Believe it or not, the confidence and sense of well-being that come from adequate self-care can go a long way toward making anyone – male or female – feel more attractive and sensual. For the average man, this can be accomplished through regular and thorough attention to male organ hygiene. Make sure to clean the area properly to keep it in tip top shape, then dry and moisturize your skin with a product made specifically for men, like a male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). This particular health creme is a super weapon, containing vitamins and nutrients essential to the wellbeing of private area skin, like vitamin C, for collagen production, and Shea butter, which hydrates the skin leaving the area soft and smooth. Keep the male organ skin clean, dry, and hydrated for optimal health.

Self-pleasuring: Your Number-One Stress Management Technique

Given half a chance, it’s likely that many men reading this article could easily list half a dozen or more things in their life that tend to cause them stress – money issues, relationship problems, sensual worries, in-law conflicts, workplace drama, sibling rivalries, political anxieties, etc. And those are just some of the big general topics, any one of which could have many much more specific sub-topics. Stress is far too big a part of many men’s lives, and it can have a negative impact on their general health, as well as on their male organ health, too. Thus, it really pays to take steps to limit stress as much as possible. There are numerous ways in which a person can try to mitigate stress; one of the more enjoyable ways is through self-pleasuring.

Why self-pleasuring

Many a man has noticed that his whole body feels more relaxed and that his mood is enhanced after engaging in a pleasurable self-pleasuring session. Why does self-pleasuring help a guy to de-stress? Basically because sensual activity in all its forms, including self-pleasuring, tends to release dopamine (a chemical which relaxes the body and produces a sense of pleasure) as well as oxytocin, which helps a person better deal with anxiety.

But there are other ways that self-pleasuring can help de-stress a person. When a guy self-stimulates just before bed, he is much more relaxed and more likely to fall asleep more quickly – and that can be especially helpful if a man tends to lie awake tossing and turning at night thinking about work issues or other problems.

In addition, self-pleasuring often helps lower blood pressure, at least temporarily, and blood pressure tens to shoot up during high stress times.

Tips

Self-pleasuring alone is not likely to help a man totally manage his stress – and there certainly are times when a man simply does not have the luxury of self-gratifying. But for those interested in incorporating self-pleasuring into a stress management approach, the following may prove helpful.

Determine if it needs to be scheduled. For some men, the beauty of self-pleasuring is that it can be “slotted in” to his schedule at the spur of the moment. If he becomes aware of high tension, he can sneak away to the men’s room for a quickie and find instant relief. But some men benefit from scheduling it, especially if they are going through a period of consistently high stress. In such cases, they may make it part of their daily wind-down routine or save it for bedtime. They may also schedule it in for, say, the middle of the afternoon, using the promise of a self-pleasuring break as enticement for them to soldier on with their work until break time is here.

Leave the guilt behind. Although there is much greater acceptance of self-pleasuring today, many men still feel some degree of guilt when they self-stimulate. This can diminish the degree of stress relief they feel from self-pleasuring. Such men may find benefit in reminding themselves that almost every man self-fondles and that it is a perfectly normal activity. Some may find it helpful to repeat a few affirmations – “I am a man, and self-pleasuring is one way I celebrate my manhood” or “I deserve to self-stimulate; I am using self-pleasuring not just as a source of pleasure (of which I am deserving) but as a way to maintain my health” – before starting to self-gratify.

Enjoy it. The more that a man is able to feel uninhibited while self-fondling, the more likely he is to de-stress. If in a private place, he should to moan, shout, curse, wriggle and writhe to his heart’s content.

Self-pleasuring can help to relieve stress, but too aggressive a style can result in rawness – and the need for a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Select a crème with both a high end emollient (like shea butter) and a natural hydrator (like vitamin E) to soothe overworked member skin. And one with L-carnitine can help protect manhood sensation so it is not diminished by aggressive fondling.

Male Organ Odor: The Underwear Connection

The lights are low, the music is seductive, and all the moves thus far have been perfectly timed. The man is thinking that things couldn’t have gone more perfectly as he removes his pants, giving his partner the big reveal at last. Unfortunately, the unveiling of his glorious manhood is ruined by the sudden arrival of a distinctly unpleasant aroma – and it’s wafting directly from that newly revealed manhood. Yes, deadly male organ odor has struck again, filling a potential partner’s head with dire imaginings concerning male organ health and causing them to suddenly remember an early morning appointment and rush off. Fighting persistent male organ odor is crucial, which means understanding its causes – one of which is very definitely related to one’s underwear.

Not just underwear

Clearly, male organ odor has a number of causes. For one thing, odors form in areas that are damp, warm and dark, and that describes the male organ to a “t.” Thick thatches of midsection hair make the midsection warm naturally, and keeping the member buried beneath both pants and underwear only adds to the heat quotient – which in turn makes the manhood and friends sweat, releasing bacteria which makes unwanted male organ odor.

But while underwear is not the only culprit, it still plays into the mix – so guys need to take underwear-conscious steps to help decrease the level of male organ odor.

Tips

So what can a guy do in terms of underwear and male organ odor?

- Don’t wear day-olds – or worse. Look, every guy has been there: they wake up, find that somehow there’s no clean underwear even though they know they did laundry just a couple of days ago. After a quick sniff test, they choose what they hope is the least aromatic pair and make a resolve to do a load of laundry that night. In an emergency, a guy does what he has to do – but if possible coupling is on the line, that just won’t do. Make a habit of doing laundry BEFORE getting down to the last pair of briefs. And if he has no clean underwear options, a guy should resist the temptation to borrow a pair from his roommate or best friend – unless they are a brand new pair that has never been worn before.

- Change it when needed. On a normal day, most guys can wear the same pair of boxers or briefs all day. But if he sweats a lot – either naturally or because he was out shooting hoops or working out at the gym – a change of underwear is needed (not to mention a shower, hint-hint). And to be on the safe side, if he’s going out on a date or working the bars, he should change beforehand, even if it’s just been a “normal sweat” day.

- Make the right choice. Choosing the right underwear can help diminish male organ odor. For example, wearing loose-fitting boxers rather than tight briefs can cut down on heat and sweat. And natural fibers like cotton rather than synthetics can also allow the manhood to “breathe” better.

- Go naked. Ideally, a man should “air out” his member for a couple of hours every day. Some housing arrangements make this difficult, but many men sleep naked as a way of airing the equipment out.

Making wise underwear choices can help diminish persistent unwanted male organ odor; it also helps if a guy is regularly applying a top notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) as part of his male member care regimen. The best crème will contain vitamin A, which has anti-bacterial properties which can help fight that darn male organ odor. Ideally, the crème should also contain L-arginine, an amino acid which helps produce nitric oxide and thereby enables manhood blood vessels to more properly expand when necessary.

Male Organ Bumps May Be from Manscaping

Manscaping – shaving the hair on and around the male organ and sacks has become much more common in recent years. Some men like to manscape for purely aesthetic reasons, as they (or their partners) believe it makes their manhood look even better. Some men get into manscaping for more practical reasons. For example, a partner may be object to giving oral sensual activity because the hairs get in their mouth, or all of the hair may make the midsection too hot, causing excess sweating and adding to member odor. In general, manscaping has no male organ health issues, provided one practices enough care with the razor. But in some cases, it may lead to male organ bumps – in a roundabout way.

Why male organ bumps?

Why should shaving the thatch of hair on and around the male organ and sacks bring about male organ bumps? There are a couple of reasons.

One, sometimes the skin is irritated by the shaving process or is allergic to one or more of the shaving products used. In most cases or skin irritation, keeping the skin moisturized will help the irritation to go away within a few days – sometimes a few hours. The same is true of minor allergic reactions to shaving products. If the reaction persists for several days, it’s a good idea to see a doctor. Many people experience these reactions from their first go at manscaping but don’t for subsequent shaves; others may find that these male organ bumps come about each time they shave.

Two, often the bumps that result around the midsection from manscaping are due to ingrown hairs. Ingrown hairs can happen at any place on the body, not just in the midsection. And while they can occur naturally, more frequently they are the result of shaving.

Ingrown

After a hair has been shaved, it starts to grow again, usually poking onto the skin and growing upwards. But sometimes the hair will start curling back before it breaks through the surface and continue growing underneath the skin. (This is more common with midsection hair, which tends to be coarse and curly to begin with.)

As it grows beneath the skin, the body interprets it as a foreign object that isn’t supposed to be there. Swelling, redness, itching and sometimes pain result – and the combination of the hair growing underneath the surface and the body’s response to it creates the male organ bumps.

Treatment

Most of the time ingrown hairs resolve on their own, but if they are persistent, a guy may need to do something about them. Dermatologists recommend that the first step is to stop manscaping – at least in the area where the bumps are occurring. Continuing to shave over ingrown hairs will simply irritate the area.

A guy can also apply a warm compress to the area, which can soothe it and also help pores to open up so an escape route may become available for the hair. When the hair starts to peep out, use tweezers to grasp it and try to pull more of the ingrown portion out into the open. Keep the area well moisturized.

If the ingrown hair has become infected, a doctor may prescribe a steroid cream or an antibiotic.

Male organ bumps from manscaping are an annoyance and can sometimes cause itching and soreness. Regular use of a superior male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help make a difference. Selecting a crème with a combination of moisturizing agents, such as vitamin E and shea butter, can help keep the skin properly hydrated, which also diminishes itchiness and soreness in the area. The crème should also include vitamin A, the properties of which can help to gently clear away dead skin cells, better enabling ingrown hairs to break through the surface.

Male Organ Rash Caused by Tinea Versicolor

A skin rash can may an otherwise healthy looking body, and when it is localized as a male organ rash, it can give pause to would-be admirers of said member – enough to often make them decide not to pursue further engagement with the owner of said member While a male organ rash may indeed sometimes indicate a specific male organ health issue, often it is more of a dermatological concern. Such is the case if tinea versicolor is the cause of the male organ rash.

What is tinea versicolor?

Also saddled with the name pityriasis versicolor, tinea versicolor is a fungal infection. (Jock itch, another fungal infection, also belongs in the tinea family.) Tina versicolor is caused by a yeast, which is a kind of fungus.

Many people hear about yeast being on the manhood and find it a gross thought. In fact, yeast commonly do live on the body; it’s just that they don’t often create a situation, like a rash, so most people are unaware of them.

With tinea versicolor, the yeast impedes proper pigmentation. Where the yeast infection is present, the skin is a different shade or color than the skin surrounding it (creating the rash-like effect). Most often with tinea versicolor, the affected skin is lighter than the skin around it, but not always: there have been many cases where the affected skin was darker. It tends to have a very patchy look, often with large areas of the skin forming one large patch.

Tinea versicolor typically appears on the upper trunk, arms and neck, but it can appear anywhere on the body and has appeared as a male organ rash. It would be unusual for it to appear solely as a male organ rash; rather, it would most likely spread at least to the area surrounding the member, and very likely may also have appeared on the torso or other body parts in addition to on the manhood.

Over time, the rash can become scaly and scabby looking. It may also grow itchy, sometimes intensely so. The rash also becomes more pronounced if the skin around it develops a tan (not an issue with the male organ rash except for those who sunbathe nude.)

Causes and treatment

Tinea versicolor develops when the yeast which are already occurring naturally on the skin decide to overproduce. This can be brought on by a number of causes. For example, hormonal changes can be a trigger, so this often happens among pubertal individuals or those experiencing a later change in hormone levels. Hot humid weather can also bring it about, as can skin that is too oily. And people with a weakened immune system are more prone to this disorder.

There are a number of over-the-counter antifungal medications that a doctor may recommend to treat tinea versicolor. If the case is severe or resistant, a prescription strength medication may be required.

Typically, a patient will be required to take medication periodically even after the rash has gone, in order to help prevent its recurrence.

If the male organ rash becomes scaly, it may cause some discomfort during sensual activity, including self-pleasuring.

When a man has a male organ rash, even if from sources other than tinea versicolor, his member skin often becomes overly dry. He can help address this problem by daily application of a top notch male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Look for a creme that contains both a high end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). This can help create a “moisture lock” to help trap moisture in the affected area. In addition, a crème with a potent antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid can help strengthen delicate member skin by fighting excess free radicals and the damage they can cause.

Male Organ Facts and Fiction

Just because a person owns an impressive car doesn’t mean he knows everything about the intricate workings of its engine or the truth about how many miles per gallon it really gets. For the same reason, a man may have a member but that doesn’t mean he’s up to speed on all male organ facts – especially when those facts deal with male organ health. Yet separating male organ facts from fiction is important in truly understanding one’s manhood and knowing how to treat it.

See if you can tell which of the following are male organ facts vs. fiction.

“Once the manhood is in a rigid tumescent state, it loses flexibility.”

This would seem like an obvious fact to any man who has observed his proudly tumescent member – but in fact it is fiction. While the tumescent member does become very hard, it still maintains a degree of pliability – such that scientists have found that many times it can become almost boomerang-shaped if a given sensual position requires it.

“More men are growers rather than showers.”

That is a fact. According to a survey, 79% of men are growers (that is, their manhood is relatively short when soft but expands significantly when tumescent) and 21% are showers (that is, their soft member is relatively long and expands less significantly when tumescent.)

“The head developed to help displace competitor’s male seed.”

Surprisingly, that’s fact not fiction. The shape of the male organ head helps to “scoop out” male seed which may have been deposited by a previous lover. It was more of an issue during caveman days, but a fact is a fact.

“A guy can only rupture his member during wild partner sensual activity.”

That’s fiction, actually. It turns out that a male organ rupture more often occurs when a man is vigorously self-pleasuring than when having sensual activity with a partner.

“The phrase “use it or lose it’ applies to the member.”

That’s a fact. The manhood needs to be “exercised’ to stay healthy – whether through self-stimulation or partner-based sensual activity. Basically, the smooth muscle in the member requires oxygen to stay healthy, and it gets that oxygen when loads of fresh blood rush into the manhood during the tumescence phase. So self-gratifying or having sensual activity helps the male organ stay healthy and in better shape.

“Manhood sensitivity tends to decrease with age.”

Sadly, a fact. As a man ages, the sensory threshold of his member – that is, the point at which he is able to sense the slightest degree of sensation – lessens. This can have several potential impacts, from making tumescence more difficult to attain and/or maintain to delaying a man’s ability to release seed.

“Male seed is not a diet drink.”

A fact. Some years ago, it was batted about that male seed was a low-calorie, low-carb beverage. In fact, it is mostly fructose – and considering the small amount of male seed typically released at one time, it is relatively high in calories and in carbs. So claiming that it’s good for a person watching their figure is actually a lousy argument for convincing someone to give a guy oral sensual activity.

“About 12% of men have a micromember.”

Fiction – less than 1% of men have a manhood that actually qualifies as a micromember. However, one study found that 12% of men were worried their organ was so small that it was a micromember – indicating again that many men have unrealistic ideas about male organ size.

One of the more important male organ facts (And this is no fiction) is that men need to take steps to maintain male organ health. An excellent way to do this is to daily apply a first class male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). It pays to look for a crème that contains both L-carnitine and L-arginine. The former is neuroprotective and can help protect the manhood from diminished sensitivity. And the latter is an amino acid which helps blood vessels expand, so that more oxygen-rich blood can reach the smooth muscle when needed.

Everything a Man Ever Wanted to Know About Male Emission

Male emission seems like a pretty simple thing. However, it’s a fairly complex process that only really gets investigated when problems like ED pop up. Every man should know the interworking of what needs to happen and what then occurs when men emission to have a better knowledge of self. Male emission happens as the result of a series of steps involving multiple parts of the body (not just the male organ!) working together. Let’s break down what happens from soup to nuts (pun completely intended) when a man gets that special feeling and wants to get it on.

Male Emission Step One: Stimulation

Whether he’s walking down the street, at dinner with a date, or just home alone, the whole process begins at stimulation. The man hears, sees, or feels something that gets Barry White to start singing in his brain, and then the brain sends a sensual telegram down the spinal cord to the reproductive organs which then fill with blood, causing a him to become hard. The privates then pull in toward the body as tension in the general area intensifies, which is why some men feel their heartbeat in their privates when they get hard.

Fun fact: In the process of getting it up, blood goes up to 50 times faster than its normal speed to spring a man’s member to life.

All of this action is fueled by androgen, a hormone responsible for drive and is produced in the reproductive organs. While we’re visiting the reproductive organs, let’s remember that’s where millions of reproductive travelers are made each day. Once they grown, they mingle with white, protein-rich fluids which keep them safe and healthy until male emission. This little man sauce is commonly known as seed.

Male Emission Step Two: Plateau

This is the stage in which a man prepares to release and can last up to two minutes. Muscle tension in the area increases even more and spontaneous body movements, predominantly in the pelvis, begin to take over. A man's heart rate also surges to 150 to 175 beats per minute. Pre-emission, a clear fluid, may also make an appearance from the head of the male organ. This is not only signals that stimulation is high and emission is nearing, but also biologically changes the pH balance of the urethra to improve survival.

This stage is commonly identified by phrases like “Don’t stop,” and praise to a higher universal being.

Male Emission Step Three: Emission

There are two parts to emission. The first is the plateau of pleasure and the second is release. In emission, a man reaches what is known colloquially as the point of no return. Fluid has made its way up the urethra and is ready to meet the world. Male emission happens in a series of intense contractions in both the muscles of the member and at the base of the rectum. Involuntary thrusting has also been known to happen in this stage. At the end of this, the nerves in the male organ send a love note back to the brain telling it to feel pleasure.

Male Emission Step Four: Resolution and Refraction

Now that the confetti has been thrown, the party starts to die down. The male organ empties of blood and the tumescence retreats. Tension fades, which causes many men to feel sleepy, or at minimum, a little drowsy and looking for a nap.

After resolution, men enter a period of time called the refractory period, in which the male organ calms and cannot be roused for a second round for a bit. The refractory period can last a few minutes to nearly an entire day, depending on age and health.

Male Emission: Keeping the Member Ready to Go!

A healthy diet, regular exercise, stress emission, and regular erections are all great ways to achieve high-level male organ health. Another way is to incorporate a hygiene ritual that includes thorough and regular cleansing of the male organ and genital area with a mild cleanser, being sure to feel around for any bumps or bruising. After cleansing the skin, a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) helps to not only keep the skin moisturized but strong as well. Using a crème with special nutrients such as vitamins A, C, D and E and key amino acids like L-Carnitine and L-Arginine keep the male organ young, strong, and protected from nerve damage and free radicals while promoting optimum blood flow. Be sure to apply a quality crème daily for best results.

Male Organ Protection for the Winter Naturist

Many people find the naturist lifestyle very liberating. They often extoll the virtues of experiencing the world around them directly on their skin, without the artificial barrier of clothing between them and Nature. The way the sunshine feels, how they experience a breeze, the difference between various kinds of grasses rubbing against the skin - all are part of the naturist life for many. But during the winter, the naturist may need to take precautions – and men may need to guard their male organ health from winter-related issues by practicing proper male organ protection strategies.

Summer too

Not that the male naturist doesn’t need to worry about male organ protection in the warmer months. When the sun is blazing, member skin needs to be protected from sunburn just as skin elsewhere on the body. And the male organ that brushes against poison ivy or poison oak is not going to be a happy male organ.

Activities

But in the winter, the major male organ health hazard becomes the intensely cold weather. Because of the cold (and ice and snow), many naturists retire to indoor-only naturist activities until warm weather returns. But there are many organized outdoor naturist events during winter. Polar plunges – jumping into ice cold waters – are popular, and hardly any more dangerous than those plunges in which people wear swimsuits. Naked skiing, sledding and snowboarding is increasingly popular. Some hardy souls still enjoy playing volleyball in the buff in winter, and it’s not unusual for a group of naturist friends to get together for an impromptu basketball game. And, of course, simply going for a walk naked (provided it is in enclosed grounds) is an option at any time of the year.

Male organ protection

Since some male naturists will continue to enjoy outdoor activities at least some time during winter, what are some male organ protection tips they should follow?

- Limit exposure. Just as delicate manhood skin shouldn’t be exposed to brutally harsh sunlight for an extended period of time in the summer, so should it not be exposed to sub-freezing temperatures for very long. Moderation is the key – and the colder it is, the less time the member should be out and about.

- Warm it up. Before venturing outdoors, warm the member up. This may mean waiting until the last minute to disrobe or wearing snug, warm briefs until just venturing out. Outdoors, it may pay to rub the manhood occasionally to keep it warm. This is easy to do when alone or with understanding friends; however, since rubbing the male organ often brings about tumescence and is often viewed as self-stimulating, this is not really an option in naturist groups, where manhood manipulation is frowned upon.

- Bring cover-up. It may pay to have some form of cover-up along – a robe, a towel, a pair of underwear – just in case the cold becomes unbearable and one has wandered too far away from shelter.

- Watch out for signs of frostbite. The last thing a guy wants is a frostbitten member, so know the warning signs. If the manhood gets prickly and then numb; turns very red or then turns white, pale or bluish; or turns hard and waxy, then frostbite may have occurred. Basically, if prickliness or numbness occurs, or if the member gets unnaturally reddened, it’s time to get inside before real damage occurs.

The male naturist who practices proper male organ protection should also be sure to include in his regimen the daily application of a top drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Winter weather can dry out skin, so a crème that includes a combination of moisturizers, such as shea butter and vitamin E, is an excellent choice. The skin will be further protected if the crème also contains a mighty antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid, to protect it from the ravages brought about by unwanted oxidative stress.

Five Causes of Sore Male Organ Pain and How to Cope

Private area pain can strike any part of the male organ, be it the sturdy shaft or the hypersensitive head. Sore male organ pain, therefore, is no joking matter and needs to be dealt with fast. Sometimes it can be caused by a major medical issue, but most times it’s a small trauma that leaves the male organ reeling. Let’s look at the most common causes of sore male organ pain and how to treat them.

Injury

The most common cause of a sore male organ pain, an injury can affect the male organ the same way it affects any other part of the body. Things like car accidents and contact sports play can be accidental ways to injure the male organ. However, things like rough intimacy, sensual aids which fashion a ring around the male organ to keep blood in for a prolonged period of time and inserting foreign items into the urethra are entirely controllable activities that can lead to both minor and serious injury. Be sure to wear appropriate protective gear for sports and maintain a safe sensual play environment for other extracurricular activities.

In minor cases, a little rest, cool compresses, and pain reliever are recommended. By the way, rest means no play, with a partner or solo, until everything is back to good. In the case of major injury, seek medical care.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

Think a man can’t get a UTI? Think again! When bacteria invade the urinary tract, it can lead to a painful infection. Men with a weakened immune system, are uncircumcised, or have an enlarged prostate are at a greater risk of developing UTIs. Some sensual practices like having intimate contact with someone who has an infection, as well as fastidious intimacy can also lead to a UTI.

See a doctor for diagnosis and medication.

Balanitis

Balanitis is an infection of the foreskin and the head of the male organ. While uncircumcised men are at a greater risk for this issue as well, any male that doesn’t properly and diligently wash his male organ. The male organ will take on an angry red hue and can be quite painful. Most times a trip to the doctor is necessary.

To prevent balanitis, employ a simple hygiene routine like the one listed at the end of the article.

Phimosis and Paraphimosis

Happening mostly to uncircumcised men, it’s when the foreskin is too tight and can’t be pulled away from the head of the male organ. This can also affect males who have balanitis or private area scarring resulting from an injury. Medical attention is necessary.

A similar condition, paraphimosis, happens if the foreskin can be pulled back from the male organ but then can’t retract to its normal, upright position. This is a real medical emergency because it can stop a man from urinating and result in private area tissue death.

Peyronie’s Disease

They say to turn into a curve, but that’s hard when a man has a private area curve of 20 percent or greater. Peyronie’s Disease develops when an inflammation causes a tinny sheet of scar tissue, called plaque, to form along the upper or lower ridges of the shaft of the male organ. This scar tissue resides right next to the same tissue that hardens during an erection resulting in a dramatic bend in the male organ which can be quite painful. It affects over 20 percent of men and they are usually over the age of 40 when it’s noticed.

There are several ways to treat Peyronie’s Disease. Private area rejuvenation done via plasma-rich platelet shots have be shown to help, as has surgery. The best course of action is to partner with a urologist experienced in Peyronie’s Disease for treatment.

Prevent Sore Male Organ Pain

Some of the best ways to prevent private area pain is to practice healthy male organ behaviors. Practice safe intimacy with both latex barriers and honest conversations to avoid infections and disease. Also, be observant of intimate practices that may lead to injury.

One of the easiest ways to prevent sore male organ pain is to adopt a regular hygiene ritual. Simply cleanse the male organ daily (more if used) with a mild cleanser and warm water. Be sure to thoroughly cleanse the entire area and pull foreskin back gently to ensure a squeaky-clean male organ everywhere.

After cleansing the skin, 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 lock in hydration and strengthen the skin. Find crèmes with a wide array of vitamins and nutrients to protect against bacteria and nerve damage, while providing the skin with collagen and blood flow boosting properties.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: 8 Ways that Work

Male organs, like all living things, emanate an odor. However, some Johnsons have a serious case of 1970’s funk. There are several reasons why a perfectly normal male organ can quickly morph into a stinky member in what seems like seconds. Here’s a pro’s list of how to get rid of male organ odor.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #1 Observe Pee Etiquette

First, let’s address all men who urinate (that should be pretty much everyone). A shake may not be adequate, guys. After peeing, wipe off the member, otherwise little droplets of urine make their way to underwear. Then the member bakes in the heat of the groin and those little droplets of urine become a big-time stink fest.

For gentlemen who sport a non-cut member, be sure to pull back the foreskin when urinating to prevent from urine getting underneath foreskin causing a not so fragrant odor and irritation.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #2 Trim the Tree

Pubic hair traps all sorts of things like bacteria, oils, urine, and other fluids and emissions. By keeping the hair down there trimmed, there’s less to preserve less-than-stellar odors. It looks nice too.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #3 Have a Talk BEFORE Intimacy

Partner Transmitted Infections can definitely lead to a stinky member, among other much more serious consequences. Have a talk with a partner prior to intimate contact. If a partner seems to be symptomatic of a PTI and hasn’t disclosed it, stop contact immediately.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #4 Latex barrier and Creme Check!

Be sure to continue the practice of safe intimacy past the very important convo as recommended in #3. Always use latex barriers that protect against PTI when sensually intimate. Also, be sure to use a water-based creme when creme is called for. Oil-based creme and DIY creme, also known as spit, can introduce bacteria into the member.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #5 After Intimacy Protocol

After doing the wild thing, sprint off to the bathroom to give your Jolly Roger a good cleaning. This helps remove bacteria and irritants from the member, as well as any extra…ummm…emissions which may have been left behind.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #6 Loosen Up…Your Drawers that is

For most men, their member is ensconced in underwear or even just pants the majority of the hours of each day. That means his sausage and beans spend a lot of time marinating in a warm, sweaty, smelly environment. Be sure to invest in good quality cotton underwear or equally good dry-wicking underwear to get the area dry. Also, the tighty-whities don’t really need to be tight, in fact, they shouldn’t be. Give the member some room to air out and just hang. This not only prevents a stinky member but protects against peripheral nerve damage as well.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #7 Check for Infection

Some non-STI related infections can cause a man’s nose to curl up. Things like urinary tract infections and yeast infections emit a foul odor and can be quite painful and dangerous. UTIs happen when bacteria have found its way to the urinary tract and often takes on a fishy smell. Yeast infections happen when there is an overgrowth of naturally occurring yeast in the body and is demarked by a moldy smell. See a doctor for diagnosis and treatment if it’s a first time offense.

How to Get Rid of Male Organ Odor: #8 Have a Daily Hygiene Regimen

We saved the best for last! Clean that member, mister! Cleanse the member daily (more if needed) with warm water and a mild cleanser. Be sure to retract the foreskin and give the entire area a gentle, yet thorough washing. When done, rinse well. Pat dry with a soft towel (never rub) or air dry.

Next, apply 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 the area. Crèmes like this include essential nutrients like vitamin A, which is an antibacterial agent, and vitamin C, which promotes healthy cellular function, collagen building, and freshens the member. Add to that several other vitamins and amino acids for strengthening skin and boosting blood flow all wrapped up in a silky Shea butter and moisture-preserving vitamin E. No one will ever accuse a man who follows this regimen of having a stinky member every again!
