We ask a lot of the penis, but we rarely spend any time caring for its well being. The penis and scrotum can fall victim to various health problems like infections and disorders. So,in order to protect them, simply follow these tips, which promise to improve your sex drive, fertility and ensure comfort.
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT
Obesity literally steals your manhood and reduces testosterone levels in the body. Abdominal fat converts your male hormone testosterone to the female hormone estrogen. You are also more likely to have fatty plaque deposits, which clog up your blood vessels, including the artery to the penis, making it harder to obtain and maintain a good-quality erection.
WASH YOUR PENIS DAILY
Wash the penis daily with soap and water by retracting the foreskin, if you are an uncircumcised male. Failure to do so can lead to infections, inflammations, phimosis and even tumours
AVOID USING SPRAYS
Use of scented sprays, soaps or use of detergent in clothes can cause irritation. So, avoid usage of scents and sprays as far as possible.
Wholesome and natural foods prevent the build-up of harmful plaque deposits within your blood vessels that compromises blood flow to the penis. Poor dietary choices with meals that are calorie-laden and nutritionally-empty create clogged arteries and greatly impact sexual function.
TAKE A WALK EVERYDAY
When you exercise, blood flow increases — blood rushes through the endothelial cells (the lining of the blood vessels) and stimulates them to make more nitric oxide, a key chemical involved in producing erections. “The healthier a man is, the more nitric oxide he produces, and the harder his erection is,” says Dr. Lamm.
Also, exercise has been shown to be as effective as medication in reducing symptoms of mild depression, another downer for penis performance.
HERE’S HOW TO TRIM PRIVATE PARTS HAIR
You can simply resort to shaving or waxing, to get rid of your pubic hair, but be cautious while using either of these two methods. If you use a razor, make sure you change your blade regularly. The best and safest option to reduce the risk of cuts and infection is by trimming pubic hair with a pair of scissors. Also Read: Top 10 Sexual Hygiene Habits Men & Women Must Follow
AVOID HARSH SOAPS
keep your sex organ clean, so be gentle while cleaning it. Vigourously scrubbing with soaps or liquids will cause a minor infection. So, to avoid infections, just wash it with warm water.
GO TO BED EARLIER
Testosterone levels peak in the morning for men. So irregular sleep patterns, or getting fewer than 7 hours of sleep, can affect the quality of your sleep and your sexual health. Poor sleep is also associated with many health issues that contribute to sexual problems including high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and diabetes.
EAT MORE FISH
The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are good for heart and penis health. But toxins like PCBs and dioxins in some fish can hit you below the belt by reducing your sperm count and lowering testosterone.
Try to avoid large bluefish, striped bass, and farmed salmon. PCBs and dioxins accumulate in the fatty tissues of those fish more so than in younger, smaller fish or species such as wild salmon, skipjack tuna, or sea bass.
In addition to causing cancer, tobacco narrows your blood vessels, impairs blood flow, decreases the supply of oxygen, and also promotes inflammation, compromising every organ in your body.
CONSUME ALCOHOL IN MODERATION
In small amounts, alcohol can alleviate anxiety and act as a vasodilator (increasing blood flow) and can actually improve erectile function, but in large amounts it can be a major risk factor for erectile dysfunction.
STRENGTHEN YOUR PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLES
The pelvic floor muscles play a vital role with respect to both erections and ejaculation. When you are sexually stimulated, the pelvic floor muscles activate and engage to maintain penile rigidity and a skyward angling erection. These muscles are not only responsible for getting the stimulated penis from a tumescent state (plump with blood) to a state of bone-like rigidity, but also for maintaining that rigid state and for being the “motor” of ejaculation. Numerous scientific studies have documented the benefits of pelvic exercises, known as “Kegels,” in the management of erectile dysfunction.
