For us men, it is likely that every so often, we may struggle in the bedroom. I mean come on, we all get stressed, worn out, or find that you’re simply not in the mood.
Throughout the pandemic, erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs were selling at an all-time high, with online stores reporting a massive increase in orders and online searches. Whilst we were all stuck in our houses, most of us did become closer to our partners. With the shame around erectile problems starting to diminish.
Erectile dysfunction: what is it?
Also referred to as “ED”, erectile dysfunction affects men all over the world in different ways. For some, we believe that erectile dysfunction is the end of our sex lives as we know it. For others, this may mean they’re incapable of getting an erection at all. Whilst the ones not in those categories could be struggling with the fact that they can get hard, but can’t get it to stay that way.
If I’m being completely honest, we all have different experiences, which makes ED difficult to talk about for many, and then that much more confusing to help treat it. Although, it’s important to also note that so many men across the world suffer from ED, often resulting from depression and stress; both of which would’ve been very present during the pandemic in particular.
What causes ED?
There are many factors that can result in erectile dysfunction, and sometimes it is a combination of these. If you carry a few extra pounds, you may find it difficult to gain an erection; not only that, but it can also affect your stamina.
Emotional stress, depression, anxiety and your testosterone levels all come into play as well!
What can be done?
Not only does it make you more alert and give you a boost, but coffee has been shown to relax the arteries and muscle tissue down there, potentially increasing blood flow.
There are also a few other natural remedies to improve blood flow and have your soldier standing to attention in no time. Here are the top three we’ve picked below:
High in omega-3, kippers have shown to reverse the narrowing of blood vessels, hence supporting a healthy blood flow when you’re needing it most.
We didn’t exactly need another reason to eat chocolate, but here is one anyway! Research has shown that flavonoids, like those found in cocoa, can help in reducing your chances of experiencing erectile dysfunction. Woopdedoo!
As well as other purple-ish foods such as blackberries and aubergine – cherries have been shown to reduce erectile dysfunction by a whopping 14%, due to their anthocyanins content.
And there we have it! Both caffeine and the three foods above can certainly help to fight back against ED.
But if you’re looking for a quicker way to reignite your sex drive, why not try Male Extra? Our unique formula won’t be found in any other product on the market. Get ready for bigger erections, better orgasms, and more stamina than ever before!
We all know that our sex drive can start to change as we get older. Naturally, libido and age are closely linked.
While it’s obvious in our teens that our hormones (and therefore sex drive) can experience a spike, it isn’t necessarily a straight downward slope as we age.
In terms of hitting a peak, it’s (kinda) common knowledge that a woman’s sex drive peaks much later than a man’s. According to research, the female sex drive tends to increase as fertility declines, dipping after menopause.
However, it’s important to note that everyone is different. Your unique sex drive can be determined by a variety of factors, including brain function, hormones and even believes and attitudes towards sex. Aside from that, your health, stress levels and long-term hormonal changes can all play a part even more.
In the rest of this article, we’ll be taking a closer look at how your sex drive changes over time, as well as the expectations of libido at different points in our lives.
Age and libido
The dips and spikes of libido with age can differ hugely between men and women, there’s no doubt about it. For women, female hormones, birth control, pregnancy and menopause all play a role in their sex drive. These factors alone can cause their sex drive to fluctuate.
For us men, however, the primary factors include our testosterone levels and overall health. While we talk about testosterone as a “male hormone”, women do actually have a small amount of it too.
Testosterone and sex drive
We all know that as we age, our testosterone levels start to decline. While this isn’t typically a huge drop overnight, this gradual decline can affect our sex drive. This is totally normal. But, of course, there are some things you can do.
Before opting for testosterone therapy, it’s important to review your overall health (which could be affecting your T-levels), and look at ways to give them a natural boost. More on that later!
However, since testosterone plays an important role, it’s crucial we pay attention to this primary male hormone and the way it affects our sex drive. But before we look at what affects your T, let’s take a quick look at sex drive, testosterone and age.
Your testosterone levels are usually at an all-time high in your 20s, which means that your sex drive is as well. In fact, your T levels tend to peak at around 18, with a slow decline after this point. It’s not a noticeable decline from the age of 18, though – don’t worry.
Generally, your T-levels will be high enough throughout your 20s to support a healthy sex drive. Interestingly, for women, fertility starts to decline in the late 20s, causing an uptick in sex drive.
But if your testosterone levels have started to decline by this point, how do your 30s look?
As your testosterone starts to slowly decline, a dip in your sex drive may become more noticeable, but this isn’t always the case.
In fact, for some women, this is when their sex drive peaks.
With studies showing that the decline of testosterone may speed up to around 1% per year until the age of 40, it’s not uncommon for a dip in libido to be more noticeable in your 40s.
This is when you may start to notice a little less desire for sex, as well as less rigid erections. There is also potential for erectile dysfunction to creep in. Of course, in your 40s, this is totally normal.
Remember, what one guy may experience can be totally different from your own experience. Plus, we all have a range of things that can affect our individual sex drive, such as stress.
When it comes to your 50s, both sexes experience a decline in sexual interest, and in how often they are having sex. For men, these physical changes may include:
Lower quality erections
Reduced ejaculate volume
Less orgasmic pleasure
Lower overall sexual function / erectile dysfunction
But why can your sex drive change so drastically in your 50s? Well, much of this is to do with your overall health. Deterioration in health can not only affect you physically in the bedroom, but also your mental wellbeing, therefore affecting your sex drive and sexual function.
After the age of 60, there are unsurprisingly other health factors to consider, which can be detrimental to your libido. Anything that affects your overall health can contribute to a decline in sexual activity and drive.
However, that doesn’t necessarily that you will (or should expect to) stop having sex as you get older. So much so, that studies have suggested that many couples in their 60s continue to lead active, satisfying sex lives.
So, what is it that can potentially impact your sex life in your 60s?
Body image concerns
While of course the consequences of ageing can’t always be avoided, leading a healthy and active lifestyle can certainly benefit your mental health and libido.
What can you do to increase your sex drive?
Of course, we have to expect some natural changes to our libido as we get older, but that doesn’t mean that things have to come to a complete standstill.
So, if you’re suffering from a low sex drive, there is a number of things you can do to give it a boost. The majority are linked to lifestyle changes – but let’s take a closer look:
Increase activity levels
When it comes to sex drive, health and age, there is a huge link between the three. For example, if you’re carrying a little extra weight, this could be the cause of erectile dysfunction or any erection-related struggles in the bedroom, as well as your libido.
Increasing your activity levels will not only benefit your weight, but also your stamina, mental well-being and self-esteem. Even a small increase in physical activity can boost your sex drive, according to research.
In fact, if weight is your concern, research has shown that men with a higher BMI are 30% more likely to suffer from ED. With around 40% of those having trouble with sex drive, and 50% struggling to perform in bed.
So, if you believe that your sex drive and sexual performance is weight related (which in turn can affect your testosterone levels and erections), increasing your activity levels will certainly help.
Adding exercise into your routine may help with the following:
Your energy levels and stamina
Mood and mental health
Reduced chronic pain
Managing chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes
Boost your libido with food
Did you know that some foods can potentially give your sex drive a boost? Many of them do this by improving blood circulation, supporting erectile function.
Here are a few foods to look out for to give your sex drive a boost:
Garlic, onions, shallots, and leeks
This also means, of course, that there are some foods to look out for that can damage your drive and sexual function. Where possible, these are best avoided or kept to a minimum:
Soy and soy-based products
Mint and menthol
Saturated fats (fatty beef, porn, cheese and butter)
Trans fats (processed fried, battered foods and some baked goods)
Avoiding food that has been processed can benefit your overall health, as well as your mood, energy levels and weight – in turn, having a positive impact on your sex drive.
What else can you do for a healthy libido?
Manage your stress levels
Improve your quality of sleep
Work on communication with your partner
Take Male Extra

Let’s face it, we all have our hangups. But when it’s about the size of your dick… Well, that’s something you’re not easily gonna forget about.
Those you confide in no doubt tell you it’s fine – size doesn’t matter – but to you, it does. Whether you avoid using urinals, getting changed in the gym changing room or chatting to a woman you fancy, nobody wants a small dick. But there are some things to help you get a bigger dick, without drastic measures.
Yep, no surgery! So, if you’re worried about your junk, keep reading, you’re in safe hands.
Sorry, but building muscle isn’t gonna help
Typically, we look to strength training in order to build size. But surprise surprise, there is no ‘dick dumbbell’ workout out there.
The truth is, your penis needs a healthy blood supply to get hard. The more blood, the bigger it’s going to be. Sounds easy, right?
Put simply, you need to be able to increase the amount of blood down there, as well as help it store more while erect. Let’s take a closer look…
How to help your junk receive and store more blood
Now we know what we need to do to get a bigger dick, here’s how.
1. Start jelqing
Right, you’re gonna have to bear with me on this one. While it sounds like your typical solo session, it’s actually not.
But… It does require your penis to be in a semi-erect state. Jelqing doesn’t work when you’re flacid, and it could damage your junk when erect. Now, here’s how to do it.
Get yourself into a semi-erect state. You can start by wrapping a warm towel around it for five minutes or so. It’s very important to stay in this semi-erect state as long as you can! Then, grab a water-based lubricant, and with your left hand form an ‘OK’ sign, curling your index finger into a circle against your thumb.
Now, starting at the base, pull upwards with a tight grip. If it hurts, you’re doing it wrong! It shouldn’t hurt at all, but simply push the blood to the end of your penis. Stop before you get to the glans, and repeat. Repeat this process multiple times, switching hands if it makes it easier.
Where possible, try to perform 100 jelqs daily, on alternate days when you’re first getting started. Build this up to a couple of sessions a day, with a maximum of 300 times per session after around 4 weeks or more.
The next stage is, erm, a little interesting… Now it’s time to ensure that blood is flowing freely to the end of your penis – by slapping it against your thighs. Yep, I’m serious. Hold it at the base and get shaking side to side. Try to count to 30 while doing so!
I’d certainly make sure you’re home alone while doing this! If your partner or housemate were to walk in, I wish you good luck in explaining yourself!
3. Penis pumps
If you’re feeling a little impatient and don’t feel as though you can commit to a long-term big dick plan, a penis pump may be for you.
These will give your dick a boost, but remember, it’s only temporary. Using a cock ring after a penis pump can help to keep the blood in your penis for longer, too.
Remember, don’t get too carried away with a penis pump. While they can be found relatively cheaply (and easily) online, they should be used with caution. Treat it like blowing up a bike tyre, but in this case, you don’t want to rupture a penile artery!
4. Kegel exercises
It’s easy to associate kegel exercises with women, especially when they’re most talked about in relation to strengthening the pelvic floor for better bladder control. Well, my friend, men can do them too.
It’s all about the PC muscle (pubococcygeal, for those who really wanna know), which controls your bowel, bladder and urethra. But that’s not all.
Many men have reported intensity in orgasms, fewer incidents of premature ejaculation and improvement in erectile dysfunction.
Due to their ability in strengthening the ischiocavernosus and bulbocavernosus muscles, kegel exercises can be a key part of your workout for fighting against ED. Here’s what’s even better… You can do them anywhere. Yep, that boring Monday morning meeting, the mall, the drive to work, you name it.
All you need to do to engage this muscle is stop yourself peeing mid-flow. It’s as simple as that. Huh? Urinating in a meeting? Well, not quite, but that’s pretty much a summary of where the muscle is and how it feels to do the action of kegels.
While sitting (wherever you are!) try to replicate that feeling of stopping mid-flow. Feel that tightening between your anus and testicles? That’s your PC muscle. Now you know where it is and how to work it, you need to practice tensing it. It can certainly take some getting used to, so don’t be afraid to start off slow and build up.
As you become a pro at exercising your PC muscle, begin to hold that squeeze a little longer. Count to 10, and relax.
We told you there was no need for drastic measures…
While following a healthy diet and exercising regularly will certainly benefit your sexual performance and help fight ED, there are a bunch of supplements that can also improve your dick’s size.
Ellagic acid – This works to enhance blood circulation, resulting in bigger and harder erections. It is most commonly found in pomegranate juice! Since glugging back fruit juice daily isn’t great for your teeth or sugar levels, many men opt for supplements instead.
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) – This mineral encourages new and healthy cell growth. Without an adequate level of MSM in your system, your body won’t be able to allow the growth of healthy, flexible new cells which will enable your penis to hold more blood.
Niacin (Vitamin B3) – This crucial vitamin gives blood flow a boost, helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax and expand = bigger and harder erections.
Did you know that Male Extra contains all three of these ingredients at the optimal dosage (plus a few more natural ingredients for an extra boost!). Added L-Arginine HCL, L-Methionine and Cordyceps work to increase your libido and sexual stamina, for more pleasurable, longer-lasting sex. Read more about our ingredients.
What else can make your dick look bigger?
In addition to the tips above, there are some other ways to make your dick look bigger.
Give it a trim – Yep, trimming back that bush can definitely make your dick look bigger. Plus, nobody wants a face full of fuzz when they’re down there.
Lose some weight – If you’ve got a bit of a belly, it’s not only going to curb your stamina, but also your erections and the size of your junk. Carrying excess weight can result in erectile dysfunction, as well as make your dick look even smaller!
Ready for a bigger dick?
If you commit to the above, you’ll soon experience a bigger dick! It may take some time, but believe me, the outcome is worth it.
Remember, Male Extra can help to get the blood flowing, with all-natural ingredients, you won’t find our formula anywhere else.

Put simply, erectile dysfunction (ED) can be a different experience from one guy to the next. Often, it revolves around the difficulty of either getting and/or maintaining an erection.
For some men, it may mean that getting an erection is okay, but staying hard enough for sex is incredibly difficult. In short, every guy’s experience of ED can be different.
But before you get too caught up in the details, it’s important to remember that erectile dysfunction (ED) is very common, affecting a huge 30 million men in the US alone. While it’s often a subject we want to steer away from, it can have a huge impact on your sexual confidence and quality of life.
So, what can you do about it? Well, today we’re going to be talking about three of the best exercises for ED, that you can get started on right away. But before we do, let’s look into the potential causes of erectile dysfunction.
What can cause ED (erectile dysfunction)?
There are a number of things that can contribute to erectile dysfunction, including:
Stress and anxiety
Certain diseases and conditions
History of smoking
Drinking too much alcohol
Here are a few diseases and disorders, in particular, that may result in ED:
High blood pressure
Injury to the genitals
Chronis kidney disease
While older men are more likely to experience ED, that doesn’t mean that you will necessarily experience it as a consequence of aging. However, if you do suffer from ED at any time (whether short or long term), it can quickly lead to the following:
Low self esteem
Low sexual confidence
An unhappy sex life
A loss of intimacy
Difficulty trying to conceive with a partner
What are the best exercises for erectile dysfunction?
Cardiovascular health plays a key role in sexual function. Not only does it help to improve fitness (for extra sexual stamina!) but it also helps to fight off obesity and belly fat in particular which can contribute to erectile dysfunction.
So, if you’re looking for the best exercises to fight back against ED, you might want to get these into your workouts. Don’t worry, these aren’t going to take up your entire week…
Pelvic floor exercises
Strengthening your pelvic floor is one of the most targeted exercises for fighting ED. Some have reported huge improvements in their ED symptoms from these exercises alone, with some overcoming ED completely.
For this, picture yourself pulling your genitals up, lifting them with your pelvic floor muscles. Hold this movement for five seconds before releasing for another five. Try to perform 10 of these several times a day. Believe me, you can easily incorporate these into your working day and make a huge difference to any erectile concerns.
Now, it’s kinda up to you here what type of aerobic exercise you’d like to do. But wherever possible, it’s important to incorporate some aerobic exercises into your routine.
Here I’m talking about swimming, walking, running or even rowing. Anything that’s going to get your heart pumping!
These types of exercises are key for helping you maintain a healthy weight, as well as reducing other conditions such as high blood pressure. If you’re not sure about heading out for a run just yet, try a long walk daily.
While anaerobic exercise is still going to get your heart rate up, it may not be quite as successful as the cardio above!
However, anaerobic exercises – such as weight lifting, sprinting and high intensity interval training – have been shown to improve sexual health and lower factors that can contribute to ED.
The bottom line
After getting your weight in check and focusing on regular exercise, if you’re still struggling with erectile dysfunction symptoms, it could be worth looking for other ways to fight ED.

However, if you’ve noticed your libido has dropped off a cliff or want to get a bit more active in the bedroom, but your sex drive is holding you back, then there are a range of effective and natural ways you can boost your libido.
Stress and anxiety, relationship difficulties, age, and diet can impact your libido. Low libido isn’t typically something to worry about. However, we know it can affect relationships, self-esteem, and confidence.
If you’re looking for a natural boost in the bedroom, read on for our top ten tips for naturally revving your libido.
Our top tips to boost your libido
Manage stress and anxiety
A little bit of stress and anxiety in our lives is perfectly natural and normal, unfortunately. However, when stress or anxiety starts to impact your daily life, it’s time to get it in check.
High levels of stress and anxiety from work, caring for a relative or child, or financial worries can all get in the way of your sex drive.
In addition, anxiety and stress can also make it more challenging to get or maintain an erection. A recent study has revealed that anxiety and depression can reduce libido and increase sexual dysfunction such as erectile dysfunction.
There are many things that you can do to manage your anxiety and stress and encourage positive mental health, for example:
get enough high-quality sleep
aim for work-life balance
eat a well-rounded and balanced diet
work on your relationship and communication
speak to a therapist
Work on your relationship
Many of us experience ebbs and flows in sexual desire and arousal throughout our relationships. By working on your relationship to ensure that you’re communicating, staying on the same page, and enjoying your non-sexual time together, you might find that your sex drive bumps up.
Working on your relationship might look like this:
date nights out of the house
doing activities together
practicing your communication
setting aside time just to be together
Don’t skip foreplay
We know, in the movies, they just dive straight into getting hot and heavy. But that’s not quite how it works… And actually, improving the quality of your sexual experiences may boost your sexual desire and libido in the process.
Explore being intimate with your partner before (or even without) sex, and use touching, kissing, sex toys, and oral sex to ignite that passion.
Get more Zzzs
We all know that sleep is essential, right? But did you know that getting good quality sleep can improve our mood, energy levels, and even libido? Ensure that you’re going to be at an appropriate time to bank 7-9 hours of sleep a night, as recommended by the CDC.
Living more healthily with a more nutritious diet and getting plenty of regular exercise could boost your libido in a few different ways. Following a balanced diet can increase your heart health, promote good circulation, and get the blood flowing everywhere.
Plus, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease can impact your sexual function. But eating a diet rich in fresh fruit and veg, low in sugar, and high in protein can help prevent health conditions that can impact libido.
Your testosterone levels have a lot to do with your general health, which can be quickly boosted with regular exercise. In addition, a 2015 study found that regular exercise helped improve sex drive because it alleviated issues with body image, low libido, and relationship changes.
Try Male Extra
Male Extra offers a 100% natural and safe formula that has been carefully developed to boost your testosterone, with just four capsules a day. Its powerful formula is trusted by thousands of men worldwide who are looking for improved energy and performance, enhanced muscle growth, a roaring sex drive and even fat loss.
Maintain a healthy weight
According to experts, obesity can lead to a lowered sex drive and other factors related to sexual function. This is due to your hormones; for example, your testosterone may be reduced.
In addition, some people who are overweight may struggle with lower self-esteem or body confidence. By maintaining a healthy body weight, you can improve your sex drive, physically and psychologically.
Speak to a therapist
Our sexual desire is complicated, and there are psychological and physical aspects. For example, even if a person has a physical condition that affects their libido, for instance, diabetes, by also improving the emotional and psychological aspects of sex can improve sex drive and functioning.
Therapy can target the causes behind low libido, and individual counselling can address negative views around sex and a low sex drive. Whilst relationship or sex therapy can help couples work through their relationship and the impact of sexual desire together.
Look, we all know that smoking cigarettes aren’t great for our health, smoking can impact your cardiovascular system, and good heart health is vital for sexual function.
Many who quit smoking find that their energy levels and sex drive increase after they quit smoking.
The bottom line
Men’s libido is often related to their testosterone levels, which will naturally decline as they get older. Low testosterone can cause erectile dysfunction, libido, depression, and fatigue issues. If you’ve had a sudden drop in sex drive, then it may be worth speaking to a doctor.
Overall, it’s important to remember there is no average sex drive, and having a low libido isn’t bad unless it bothers you. However, if you’re looking to boost your libido, then these ten natural boosts will help you get back to getting hot and steamy in the bedroom in no time.
So, if you’re ready to jump back into bed…
Then it’s time to make Male Extra your go-to for bigger, harder erections and more sexual stamina.
With 100% natural ingredients backed by multiple studies, there’s no denying that Male Extra can increase blood flow, fight back against erectile dysfunction, and reverse your flagging sex life. Order yours today!
When we talk about hurting your junk, we’re going beyond a kick in the nuts, but instead, refer to potentially long-term damage. As well as being painful, injuring your penis can be pretty impactful on your quality of life.
However, it’s worth noting that erectile tissue damage is actually pretty rare. That being said, the long-term effects can be damaging, which is why it’s crucial to get a diagnosis as soon as you can.
Now, let’s take a closer look at what damaging your junk really involves.
What does it mean to damage your penis?
You’ve probably heard horror stories before now about the impact of erectile tissue damage. Typically, damage to the tissues of your junk is quite rare, and usually the result of an injury.
While it makes us all squirm at just the thought of a penis fracture – the rupture of the tunica albuginea – this isn’t something that happens often. In fact, only 1331 cases have been reported between 1935 and 2001.
There are a bunch of ways this type of damage can be caused, often resulting in long-term damage.
How does this type of damage usually happen?
Let’s be honest, the penis is pretty tough and versatile. This means that it has been under some serious pressure in order to experience erectile tissue damage.
The tunica albuginea surrounds the innermost tissues of the penis, in a multi-layered structure. Made of collagen, the tunica albuginea is tougher than you think. It’s also pretty adaptable, supple when soft and able to stay rigid when erect.
While it’s pretty versatile, it does have one slight weakness. When you’re hard, the structure thins from 2mm to as thin as 0.25mm, all while pressure increases during an erection.
This means that your junk is at its most vulnerable when hard, and during sex. Especially when you slip out of your partner all of a sudden. But it’s not just when you’re getting frisky with a partner that it can occur, but it is also shown to occur during masturbation.
If things get a little too rough, damage to your junk externally can occur, such as cuts or burns. But in this instance, we’re focused on the impact on internal erectile tissue damage.
During this type of impact, you’re likely to experience a sharp bend in your penis, along with a “popping” sound. You may have heard this type of injury referred to as “snapping” your “banjo string”. Ouch.
What are the effects of erectile tissue damage?
In the short term, you’re certainly going to feel some pain and even start to notice some bruising. But how does that affect your junk long-term?
Well, you could be faced with disfigurement and difficulty getting or maintaining an erection, which is often referred to as erectile dysfunction (ED). ED affects men in many different ways. While some may struggle to get it up at all, others may not be able to stay hard enough for full sex.
In terms of pain, it can linger or go away fairly quickly. If you see blood at the tip of your penis or when you wee, it could be the sign of a serious urethral injury too.
While it isn’t always the case, some may experience repeated damage. Although rare, Peyronie’s disease – the formation of scar tissue in the erectile tissue – can cause incredibly painful and curved hard ons. However, this is usually only the case when a guy has penile injuries again and again.
How can you treat erectile tissue damage?
In serious cases of penile fractures, surgery is often recommended. In this scenario, a surgeon would cut into the penis and repair any tears, while also identifying (and removing) any potential blood clots.
If you do suffer from Peyronie’s disease, medication is usually the go-to to dissolve scar tissue without the need for surgery.
Struggling with erectile function? Don’t suffer in silence
If you’ve experienced penile trauma, we recommend speaking to a doctor as soon as possible in order to examine the potential damage. Holding out can be incredibly painful, and worrying.
Feeling the effects of erectile damage? Don’t let erectile dysfunction ruin your sex life. Male Extra can support your journey to overcoming erectile damage, so you can get back in the sack with confidence. With 100% natural ingredients backed by multiple studies, you won’t find our formula anywhere else!
Many of us wish we were having more sex. But how much sex is considered ‘normal’ or ‘healthy’, really? The thing is, there’s no right or wrong answer to that million-dollar question.
After all, there are a number of factors that can affect how often you’re jumping in the sack. But if you’re concerned if you’re getting enough, you’re in the right place.
We take a look…
What are the benefits of sex?
There are a bunch of benefits that come with regular sex. But as well as building a strong bond between you and your partner, sex also offers a variety of other health benefits, including:
Improved energy and mood
Lowered blood pressure
Less stress and anxiety
Reduced risk of heart disease
Potential – improved bladder control in women
Potential – reduced prostate cancer risk in men
While these benefits are certainly great, it doesn’t necessarily mean that more sex will improve your health. Nor, does it mean that less or no sex at all will make you less healthy.
After all, sex is only one of many factors that can influence your health. However, studies do show that regular sex can be good for both the mind and body. That being said, there is no “right” amount of sex, as this can vary greatly, for a number of reasons from one individual to a couple.
Frequency of sex
Typically, those that are single tend to have more sex than those in a relationship (married or not). Studies have revealed that couples have sex once weekly on average.
Sex hormone levels also play a key role in our sex lives. Age can increase or decrease the frequency of getting between the sheets, but it largely depends on how high (or declined) sex hormone levels are.
According to one study in 2017, which took a closer look at behavioral data of American adults from 1989 to 2014:
Adults in their 20s have sex 80 times yearly on average (roughly once every five days)
Adults in their 60s have sex 20 times yearly on average (roughly once every 18 days)
In terms of where our sex lives decline, the greatest decline is typically seen in people in their 50s. Alongside this, a variety of factors contribute towards an up-down sex life, including:
Not watching porn
Rest assured, it doesn’t necessarily mean that getting older automatically means less sex, or no sex at all. Just as much as it doesn’t mean that young people will have shed loads of sexual encounters.
In fact, studies have shown that those born around the 1940s and 50s were having more sex in their 20s and 30s than millennials are today.
Relationships and sex
Whether you’re at it several nights of the week, or you’re more a two-weekly individual or couple, having less sex doesn’t mean your relationship is no good. However, sex has been shown to play an important role in a relationship, for a number of reasons.
Research by Harvard University reports that 90% of men and women felt that a “good relationship is important to the quality of life”. From this, half said that although sex was pleasurable, it is not a necessary part of a good relationship. Interesting, huh?
Meanwhile, another survey found that 50% of heterosexual couples were content with the amount of sex in their relationship. Generally, these couples had a more positive outlook on their relationship, too.
While on the other hand, the majority of dissatisfied men said they didn’t get enough sex, with these negative feelings drifting into how they felt about their relationship. When it came to female participants, however, only two-thirds of dissatisfied women felt the same.
What factors reduce sex drive?
It’s easy for us to get caught up with the stress of work, family life and everything in between, which can have an impact on our sex drive, therefore sexual activity.
Mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression can quickly get in the way of us relaxing and having a positive body impact. Feeling positive about ourselves can contribute towards a healthy sex life, and relationship.
A healthy diet and regular exercise play a key role in a healthy libido and sexual function. This is due to the way they affect heart health and blood circulation.
There are a number of factors that can affect sex drive. During surveys, these were the results:
Stress and anxiety
Has Covid impacted our sex lives?
With the impact of lockdowns and rules/restrictions, research has shown 32% of men were having less sex, while 25% of women were getting hot and heavy less often.
A huge 59% of both men and women reported no impact on their sex lives. However, it’s clear to see that the majority of impact was no doubt on couples living apart or single people.
Attitudes towards sex
We all have different experiences when it comes to sex, including our attitudes towards the subject itself. During research, it was obvious that men tend to feel greater distress if they are not totally satisfied with the amount (or quality) of sex.
One study showed that sexual satisfaction was more important to women than quantity, while men are more likely to link their sexual frustration to their relationship.
In addition, research showed that women tend to connect sexual satisfaction with intimacy and the length of their relationship, while men associated it with sexual performance and their ability to satisfy their partner with an orgasm.
The bottom line
On average, couples in the US have sex once a week. The frequency of sex sessions is higher in younger couples, and tends to decline pretty sharply after we hit 50.
Those that are single or without children, tend to have more sex than those with a partner or with children.
But that doesn’t necessarily reflect the true happiness of a relationship, however. What can affect, though, is sexual dissatisfaction. Being dissatisfied about your sex life, as a man, is often linked to both quantity and quality of sex. Women, on the other hand, frequently build an association between sexual satisfaction and intimacy and the duration of a relationship.
So, how can you overcome sexual dissatisfaction? It’s all about communication.
The trouble is with sexual satisfaction is that frequency and satisfaction are closely linked. This means that if both partners are unable to satisfy one another, the frequency can decrease, no matter how old you are.
Struggling to perform in bed?
So, it would seem that both men and women look at a “healthy” sex life differently. The key to having a happy, healthy sex life sits with your communication.
Being open with your partner can help to overcome any problems and improve your satisfaction in the sack.
But if you’re looking for a little help in the bedroom, there’s always Male Extra. Our 100% natural formula gives you bigger and harder erections, for your best performance yet! Get ready for better orgasms and more stamina than ever before.
It’s totally normal for our sex lives to change over time. We discover we like different things, life gets busy and partners change. All in all, plenty of things can throw a spanner in the works!
But what makes a great sex life? Would you rather frequent shorter sex sessions or fewer longer moments of lust?
Well, the thing is, knowing what makes a great sex position is pretty subjective. What one guy loves may be a total turn off to another. Either way, we’re about to dive head first (oo-err!) into why spicing up your sex life will improve your health.
Beware, it’s about to get a little raunchy.
Why trying new things will benefit your health
Trying out new things and sex positions with a partner isn’t, well, new. Let’s face it, there’s a reason why the Kama Sutra is still talked about some 2,400 years after it was first created.
A varied, exciting sex life has a whole world of benefits, both physical and mental – as well as being fun of course. Getting hot and heavy regularly boost your levels of immunoglobulin A, an antibody that fights off infection. But that’s not all.
Regular sex also contributes towards higher quality sleep, as well as making your blood pressure less reactive to stress. But there’s even more… Getting down and dirty on a regular basis has also been shown to reduce your risk of heart disease, according to a huge study by the New England Research Institute.
The importance of keeping things… Spicy
In addition to the health benefits, there is another reason – perhaps an even more convincing one – why it’s important to try some fresh sex positions every now and then. For most people, their sex lives can start to kinda… Get boring.
We’re all busy, tired and sometimes, to be honest, we get a little bored. There is no shame in saying that. This happens especially when you have been with your partner for a long time.
The good news? Not only does sex make us feel great, but it’s also a bonafide relationship booster. Yep, those warm fuzzy feelings post-sex is actually a sexual afterglow, lasting up to 48 hours, according to research.
If you feel as though your sex life has fallen off a cliff – There are plenty of ways to give your time between the sheets a shakeup! Here are our top sex positions to try this year.
The top sex positions for 2022
Looking for something new to try with your partner? You’re going to love these.
Here are my top 5 favorite sex positions to really spice things up.
With your partner lying on her left side, kneel and straddle her left leg. For some extra grip, bend her leg around your waist for extra-deep penetration.
Why this move:
With the right grip and motion, The Pretzel frees up your hands. Make the most of it! Tease her with your fingers and watch her body respond to how you move.
Now, this sex position is certainly a challenging one. With your partner lying on her back, straddle her while facing the other way. Keep her legs lifted and wrapped around your back, elevating her pelvis.
If you need a little extra omphh, try popping a pillow underneath her lower back. She can also grab your backside to guide you in.
Why this move:
While it may feel like a game of Twister, it’s definitely a fun one. If you fancy a challenge, this move is for you.
It’s time for a little bedroom yoga… But thankfully, this one isn’t quite as confusing as the Snow Angel! For this one, you can either sit with your legs crossed or keep them stretched out in front of you, while she straddles you on top. Wrap her legs around your back for extra closeness and her arms around your neck.
Why this move:
Slow and sensual, you can experience deep penetration without arriving too early, while the rocking and grinding movements will stimulate her clitoris and put your partner in control.
Sit on the bed with your legs out straight, leaning your weight back onto your hands. Have her straddle you with her knees bent and feet on either side of your hips.
Why this move:
After the thigh straddle, this is a great position to transition into. She’s in full control here, and you’ve got a great view.
Sit on the bed, facing one another with your legs bent. Lean back, putting your weight on your hands and forearms, gradually shifting closer to one another until you’re ready to enter.
Why this move:
It’s pretty intense, plus you get a great view. Oh, and she’ll be in a great position to grind against your pelvis, stimulating her clitoris.
Ready to get frisky?
These sex positions will certainly get your heart racing!
But if you need a little extra confidence, why not try Male Extra? With 100% natural ingredients backed by multiple studies, there’s no denying that Male Extra can increase blood flow, fight back against erectile dysfunction and reverse your flagging sex life.
There’s no denying it, your testosterone levels are important. This crucial male sex hormone plays a vital role in not only your sex drive, but your muscle mass, sperm production and well, pretty much everything.
So, how can you get more T in your life?
Well, before we tell you how to improve your testosterone levels, let’s take a quick peek at what can happen when your T levels dip, with symptoms of low T including:
Lack of sex drive
Erectile dysfunction (ED)
And the list goes on… Meanwhile, further not-so-obvious symptoms of low testosterone include:
Reduced sperm count
Loss of lean muscle mass
Decreased bone density
Whichever way you look at it, having low T sucks. With a variety of factors coming into play, something else going on in your health could be flagging up low testosterone levels. There are also psychological factors to consider – which can have a huge impact on your confidence in the bedroom – leading to erectile dysfunction (ED).
Nevertheless, you’re not here for a lowdown of what to look out for, you’re here to make a change, am I right? So if you’re looking to increase your testosterone levels, you’ve come to the right place.
Here are seven tips for you.
1. Exercise often
Generally speaking, your testosterone levels have a lot to do with your general health, which can be quickly boosted with regular exercise.
Whether it’s hitting the gym, doing a home workout or even yoga, getting your heart pumping is one of the best ways to promote the healthy production of testosterone. One study alone has shown that a 6 week HIIT training program can significantly improve T levels.
But what type of exercise should you be doing? Resistance training is our best recommendation, compared to lengthy endurance training which has been shown to potentially lower T levels.
2. Eat well
Much like keeping that heart pumping strong, what you eat matters too. A healthy, varied diet is key for the normal production of testosterone. Without knowing, you could even have a micro-nutrient deficiency, which could be having a detrimental impact on your T levels.
There are a bunch of foods that increase your libido naturally, but if you’re looking to put together your own diet plan, be sure to include these nutrients:
Furthermore, if you’re contemplating a low-fat, high-fiber diet, think again, as one study showed it could have a negative impact on your T levels. Meanwhile, a high-carb diet (compared to a high-protein) diet has been shown to aid greater testosterone production.
3. Sex or masturbation
There has long been a debate around whether masturbation decreases testosterone levels… With more than a little confusion as to the real result. It’s pretty clear that testosterone is linked to sexual stimuli, however. So, naturally, when you’re turned on, your T levels are going to peak.
Post-sex or masturbation, they will gradually return to their usual level – however, they won’t decrease. Alongside this, there is also a lot of (very interesting) research into abstinence and its potential to increase T levels – peaking after 7 days. While there’s always room for further research, it’s an interesting possibility to discover.
A pharmaceutical herb that has long been used for a wide range of illnesses, ashwagandha has been linked with testosterone more and more in recent years. Of course, there’s room for a little more research, but studies so far have supported its potential.
One study in particular on male fertility showed a 17% increase in T levels when taking this fascinating herb. Furthermore, further research supported the positive effects of ashwagandha root in men.
5. Testosterone replacement therapy
This is a slightly more drastic route to take, and not one we’d suggest as your first route of exploration. With plenty of ways to boost your testosterone naturally (including the above, and our natural formula, Male Extra), testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) is more of a last resort solution to low T.
It typically comes in several forms, including gels, injections and even patches. But before you take the plunge, it’s worth exploring other options first.
Sleep plays an incredibly important role in any man’s life, supporting healthy bodily functions – including testosterone production. Alongside this, getting plenty of rest can support your mood, energy levels, memory consolidation and help your body to heal.
Testosterone peaks during the REM (rapid eye movement) cycle of your sleep, so if you’re missing out on crucial shuteye you could be stunting testosterone production. But don’t just take my word for it, as studies have shown that sleep deprivation has been linked to lower T levels.
7. Use Testogen
Looking for a natural way to boost your T levels? Then look no further! Testogen’s 100% natural and safe formula has been carefully developed to boost your testosterone, with just 4 capsules a day.
Its powerful formula is trusted by thousands of men around the world, looking for improved energy and performance, enhanced muscle growth, a roaring sex drive and even fat loss.

With 100% natural ingredients backed by multiple studies, there’s no denying that Male Extra can increase blood flow, fight back against erectile dysfunction and reverse your flagging sex life. Order yours now.
We all do our best to follow a healthy lifestyle, right?
We work out, we eat well, we drink plenty of water… You name it. But did you know that some foods – and fruit in particular – can boost your sex life more than others?
Yep, it’s time to get fruity my friend! Here are 5 fruits to supercharge your sex life.
It comes as no surprise that watermelon has earned the term, the ‘natural viagra’ due to its powerful amino acid and antioxidant content – both of which help to improve blood flow. But is it all it’s cracked up to be?
Put simply, it all comes down to a watermelon being rich in the amino acid, citrulline. Our bodies convert citrulline to arginine, which reacts with other chemicals in the body to create nitric oxide.
Now, you might wonder why that’s such a big deal? Well, nitric oxide is what keeps our blood vessels healthy, making it easier to get hard – and stay hard. But don’t just take my word for it… Studies have shown that an L-citrulline supplement can have a positive impact on erectile dysfunction (ED), revealing that watermelon’s amino acid content could be stronger than we think.
Now, this pretty pink fruit may seem harmless, but it could actually be having a negative effect on your erections. Yep, this is a fruit to avoid that’ll change your sex life for good.
If you’re currently taking any medications that contain sildenafil – such as Viagra – grapefruit could actually be playing havoc with its success. This is because grapefruit contains a bunch of chemicals that interact with the way medication is absorbed.
Big fan of grapefruit and those little blue pills? If your meds aren’t working as they should, it could be down to this mighty fruit.
Unlike grapefruit, there is little to comment on (in a good way!) regarding the way that lemon interacts with medications. However, it could be more beneficial than you first think, as lemons are rich in vitamin C and plant compounds that can help to lower high blood pressure.
As we’re all well aware, high blood pressure isn’t good for our general health, let alone erectile function. Bringing that blood pressure down has got to be beneficial to your hard ons, let’s face it.
You’ve undoubtedly heard about the potential ED magic powers of pomegranate before now.
But are the rumors true?
Well, studies have shown that men have reported improvements in ED after drinking a glass of pomegranate juice. Rich in antioxidants, pomegranate is both great for your heart and your erections. It comes as no surprise that we feature pomegranate 40% ellagic acid 500mg in Male Extra’s 100% natural formula.
Packed with potassium, bananas are great for heart health and circulation. So when it comes to getting hard and staying that way, healthy circulation is key.
Not only are they easy to grab on the go and chomp on during your drive to work, but you can easily incorporate them into smoothies and breakfasts, too.
Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, these fruits can certainly benefit your junk. It’s important to balance a healthy varied diet with regular exercise to support your general health and erectile function.
Struggling to keep up in the bedroom? Give your best performance yet with Male Extra!
For most of us, our lives are full of to-do lists, work commitments, family responsibilities, and that’s without counting in any hobbies or exercise.
When all this starts to get a little too much, how do you ensure that you stay in touch with your partner and work on your relationship?
Working on your relationship requires time, effort, openness and honesty, and we are here to share a secret with you: pillow talk.
Ready to find out more? Let’s jump in.
What is pillow talk, anyway?
Pillow talk is a close and open conversation between two people in a relationship. This kind of safe, loving and honest communication usually takes place in bed or when you are cuddling. It can also happen before or after sex, but sex isn’t necessarily part of the equation.
Since these types of conversations usually do not involve eye contact, you will feel that you will be able to speak more freely, which will allow for in-depth discussions. For some of us, it may be difficult to open up, while for others, this type of conversation may be easy and natural.
Pillow talk vs talking dirty
While dirty talking during sex can lead to a serious, intimate experience with your partner, it’s not the same as pillow talk. Although the two are about intimacy, pillow talks are about emotional intimacy and being jointly vulnerable.
Although pillow talk usually takes place before or after sex, the conversation is less related to sex and it’s important you both feel relaxed, comfortable and close.
What about pillow talk and intimacy? How can it help?
If your sex life has been a bit slow lately, you’re probably wondering if pillow talk can help. The short answer is yes. Pillow talk will allow you to take down your guard, feel close with one another and help you communicate your wishes and needs.
While lying down, having a cuddle and doing a little pillow talk, you are likely to notice an increase in oxytocin, the love and bonding hormone. Oxytocin helps us feel connected, closer and enhances feelings of love. In addition, pillow talking can help elevate a relationship; it is the difference between casual sex and dating and being in love.
But it’s not just the talking that contributes to a loving relationship, a 2014 study revealed that snuggling, talking, and caressing all contribute to a better sex life.
What does pillow talk sound like?
Need some tips for getting started with pillow talk? Here are my top tips:
Share what you love about each other and remind each other of your love
Talk about your dreams for the future, travel, new jobs, adventures, and things you want to try as a couple
Reminisce about memorable moments, like when you first fell in love or a time that you celebrated something special together
Bring up fears that need comforting
Share positive attributes and gestures that can help your partner feel safer and more confident
Get started with pillow talk
So to get started, have a pillow plan; For example, you may have a conversation where you will not be able to talk for ten minutes about your work, any relationship issues, your friends, children, to-do lists, and see how it goes.
Start making it a habit to have this conversation with no one but you two every night. Over time, this will seem more natural and second nature.
As well as pillow talk, these can help:
touching or hugging each other
smile or laugh
reassure the other person
Other ways to feel close to your partner
It’s not just pillow talk that can help with intimacy! Here are some other great love-worthy tips to increase those feelings of closeness.
Spend more time touching each other
Avoid looking at screens in bed
Hold hands more
Share your feelings
Ready to get intimate?
If you feel out of touch with your partner lately or your sex life is not what it used to be, the commitment to spend a lot of time with your partner and practice pillow talk can improve your relationship, bring you closer and stimulate emotional intimacy.
Remember, this can feel annoying or embarrassing at first, but the more you do it, the more natural it will feel to you. In addition, the more you feel emotionally connected and close, the more you will see the benefits of all other aspects of your relationship – including the bedroom!
Need help keeping things going? Male Extra is a 100% natural male performance enhancer that will help you fight erectile dysfunction, enhance your sexual stamina and restart your sexual power! Get ready to jump back in the sack with confidence – with a little pillow talk, of course.
