How to get a bigger d**k

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.

While it may sound pretty crazy, those who commit to jelqing have seen impressive results. Some men have reported a 1inch increase in girth, and 2inches in length after six months of regular jelqing.

Top tips for jelqing:

  • If it hurts, stop and take a rest for a day or two
  • Always use a good lubricant
  • Switch hands if it’s easier
  • Is your penis curved? Jelq against the curve only, and allow your junk to stay a little more erect than your usual jelqing state

2. Stretch your penis

Don’t worry, it’s not as disturbing as it sounds! Although relatively similar to jelqing, penis stretching works to increase the length of the suspensory ligament within the penis.

While jelqing involves pulling along the length of your dick, penis stretching is more about the glans, instead. Make the same ‘OK’ hand shape with your index finger and thumb, then grasp the glans.

Now, firmly twist clockwise, but only as far as is comfortable. Do this 5 times, then repeat in an anti-clockwise motion.

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!

Also Read: How often are you jumping in the sack?

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.

5. Supplements

pomegranate sex drive

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.

How to Increase Your Libido Naturally

Low sex drive in men can influence life in a lot of ways. It can affect your relationships, your confidence, and even your overall energy levels and the way that you interact socially.

It’s no wonder that so many men are wondering how to increase their sex drive.

What Will I Learn?

Unfortunately, a lot of men are driven to using pharmaceutical products like viagra to improve their sex lives. While drugs like these might work, they tend to cause a lot of side effects and can be disastrous for your health.

Fortunately, there are lots of natural ways that you can increase your sex drive, improve your sexual performance, and become a high sex drive man. This article will deal with lifestyle choices, herbal treatments, and other natural methods that can help you to boost your overall sex drive.

What Are the Causes of a Low Sex Drive in Men?

There are a lot of different reasons that men can have a low sex drive. Anything from diet to hormonal problems and lifestyle choices can influence the male sex drive. Here are some of the main causes of low sex drive in men.

Low Testosterone

One of the first things that most men think of when they realize they have a low sex drive is their testosterone levels. There’s a reason for this: testosterone is one of the most important hormones for men, and it’s largely responsible for our sex drive.

Men can have varying levels of testosterone, and it’s not generally considered an issue unless you have T levels lower than 300 nanograms per deciliter. The best way to figure out if you have low T is to get your levels checked by a doctor – otherwise, it’s best not to assume.

Medication

There are a huge number of commonly-prescribed medications that can totally destroy a man’s libido. If you’ve recently started taking a new medication and you’ve noticed a drop in your sex drive, the meds are probably the culprit.

Depression

Men with depression are much more likely to struggle with low libido than men who aren’t depressed. Depressed people tend to lose interest in all manner of activities – including sex.

Unfortunately, this can make things difficult in relationships. This problem is further compounded by the fact that many commonly-prescribed antidepressants can actually reduce libido. If you’re depressed, the best thing to do is figure out why you’re depressed and work to correct the issues.

Illness

There are a number of reasons that chronic illness and sickness might lead to low libido. The first and foremost issue is that when you’re seriously ill, sex is probably pretty low on your list of priorities. 

Other forms of illness can also directly affect your libido. Things like high blood pressure and high cholesterol can lead to erectile dysfunction. Diabetes, obesity, and heart disease can also affect your libido and your ability to get an erection.

Sleep Issues

Research has shown that people who struggle with sleep apnea can have an adverse effect on libido. The low quality of sleep can lead to a decrease in testosterone levels. This, in turn, can reduce male libido and sex drive.

Age

One of the leading causes of reduced libido is age. As men get older, their testosterone levels tend to decrease. As mentioned, testosterone is highly involved in male sexual health and libido. This is one of the reasons that sex drive tends to drop as we get older.

Stress

People who are highly stressed may be less interested in sexual activity. Stress also tends to lead to physical issues such as increased blood pressure, which can make it difficult for men to get an erection. Studies have revealed that stress can adversely affect sexual health in both genders.

Best Ways to Increase Low Sex Drive

There are a number of ways that you can improve your sex drive if you’re struggling with it. These are some of the most popular ways.

Medical Treatments

While I can’t recommend medical treatments as being the ‘best’ way to increase your sex drive, they are generally effective. Unfortunately, medical treatments can be risky. We’ll go into more detail about medical treatments in the next section, but remember that these treatments are more likely to lead to undesirable side effects.

Some medical treatments, such as surgery, are also irreversible.

Lifestyle Choices

If you have an unhealthy lifestyle, then this will be reflected in your sexual health. People who don’t get enough exercise or who eat garbage food all the time are more likely to have a low sex drive.

On the flip side, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and exercising on a regular basis are among the best ways to make sure that you can improve your sex life. We’ll go into more detail about lifestyle choices like diet and exercise below.

Herbal Supplements

For thousands of years, practitioners of the traditional medicine system have been prescribing patients herbal medicine to increase their libido. Now, science is finally catching up to the reality that these herbal supplements are really effective.

Herbs can work in a variety of different ways to improve your sexual health. Some of them can boost testosterone, some of them enhance blood flow throughout the body, and yet others improve libido. We’ll go into a list of some of the best supplements for improving libido later in the article.

What Treatments Are Available?

There are lots of medical treatments available to help men increase their sex drive. Medical treatments are often risky and can lead to undesirable side effects – and yet people still take the risks rather than choosing natural alternatives.

Here are some commonly available treatments.

Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Testosterone replacement therapy is generally only recommended for people who struggle with a genuine testosterone production issue. TRT is especially useful for older men, especially those who have already tried natural methods and have seen no success.

Medication

Drugs like Viagra and Cialis don’t technically increase libido – they just make it easier to get an erection. However, many men still use these drugs when they’re struggling with a low sex drive. Unfortunately, they can cause dangerous side effects.

Counseling and Therapy

One of the best and most holistic methods to treat psychological libido issues is to seek a counselor or a therapist. This is particularly true if your low sex drive is related to some issues like anxiety or depression.

Seeking counseling can help you figure out the root cause of your sexual issues and overcome that without the use of medication.

What to Eat to Have a High Sex Drive?

If you want to have a healthy sex drive, you need to have a healthy diet. First and foremost, you should make sure that your diet primarily consists of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and high-quality proteins. Get your omega-3 fatty acids and make sure that all your nutritional needs are met.

Food that increases sex drive

If you’re already eating a good diet and you’re still having problems with your sex drive, then there are a few foods that are known for being particularly effective at boosting libido. Here are some of the best:

  • Pomegranate. Pomegranate – especially the juice of the pomegranate – has been known to be an effective libido booster. It helps so much at balancing hormone levels that many natural libido-boosting supplements include pomegranate extract.
  • Oysters. Oysters are one of the best food sources of zinc, and zinc is one of the most important minerals for male sexual health. Zinc has been shown to help increase sex drive, especially in men who are deficient in the mineral.
  • Chocolate. Dark (or better yet, raw) chocolate contains a number of compounds that can impact your sex drive. Two of the most prominent are theobromine and phenethylamine (PEA).
    PEA helps to release neurotransmitters like dopamine. These brain chemicals are highly involved in the sex/reward circuit and can increase libido. Theobromine is a compound similar to caffeine that lowers blood pressure and can improve arousal in both men and women.
  • Watermelon. Watermelon is a food that is rich in the amino acid L-citrulline. L-citrulline is turned by your body into L-arginine, an amino acid that is involved in the dilation of blood vessels. Healthy levels of L-arginine ensure that you’re able to get an erection easily.

Does Exercise Boost Sex Drive?

People who live sedentary lives and don’t get a lot of exercises are generally more likely to have a low sex drive. 

There are lots of reasons for this. If you don’t exercise, your circulation goes down, making it harder to get an erection. Your body won’t be as capable of producing hormones or neurotransmitters that are responsible for stimulating libido. And, you’ll be more likely to become overweight which can lead to self-esteem issues and low libido on its own.

There are lots of different forms of exercise that are particularly effective at improving libido in males.

Strength Training

Strength training is quite possibly the most effective type of exercise for boosting male libido.

You probably already know that testosterone is involved in the production of muscle tissue. Well, the opposite is also true: men with more muscle tend to produce more testosterone. For this reason, dudes who participate in strength training exercises are more likely to experience increased T levels.

Strength training is generally regarded as doing heavy lifts that cause you to max out after 8-12 reps. The study linked to above showed that testosterone and growth hormone levels increased significantly after just 12 weeks of strength training.

Cardiovascular Exercise

Cardiovascular exercise is anything that gets your heart pumping. Cardio exercise can help boost libido and sexual health in a couple of different ways.

  • First off, cardiovascular exercise ensures that blood flows properly throughout your body. This can be useful for men who struggle with erectile dysfunction, as this ensures that they can have blood flow to their penis.
  • Regular exercise helps the body produce neurotransmitters and hormones that are responsible for regulating and improving libido.

Exercise – both cardio and strength training – will also make you more fit, which can improve your self-esteem and make you more attractive. Increased self-confidence can give men a major boost to their libido.

Kegel Exercises

Kegel exercises involve the strengthening of your pelvic floor muscles. While they may not directly boost your libido, they can certainly improve your sexual performance. This can increase your self-confidence and self-esteem and can make you more comfortable with your sex life. 

Yoga

Yoga may not be the exercise that you first think of when you’re trying to boost your libido, but it’s certainly useful. Yoga can be useful in a number of ways.

  • It can help to enhance circulation and blood flow and fight erectile dysfunction.
  • It can help enhance your mood and mental health, getting rid of things like depression and anxiety that get in the way of healthy sex life.
  • Yoga gets you more in tune with your body and can promote body awareness which is tremendously important for anyone hoping to enjoy a healthy sex life.

What Are the Best Supplements for a Low Sex Drive?

There are a lot of different supplements out there that are useful for enhancing male sexual health. These are some of the most common.

  • L-arginine. As discussed earlier, L-arginine is an important compound for ensuring that blood can flow properly throughout your body and making sure that you can get strong erections.
  • Ginseng. Used for thousands of years in various traditional medicine systems, ginseng has been shown to improve sexual performance, libido, and energy levels in both men and women.
  • Methyl Sulfonyl Methane (MSM), a compound that helps to prevent the cells in your penis from becoming rigid or weak.
  • Cordyceps, a mushroom supplement that has been shown to help enhance libido and overall energy levels.
  • Zinc. Zinc is one of the minerals that people are most deficient in. If you don’t want to start eating tons of oysters, one of the best things that you can do is take a zinc supplement.

If you’re not sure about which of these supplements to take, you could find a supplement like Male Extra. Male Extra combines all of these ingredients together in a great ratio to ensure that you can experience increased libido without running the risk of side effects.

Conclusion

There are many things that can cause low libido in men, but fortunately, there are just as many solutions. Hopefully, this article has helped you learn a bit about the healthier natural methods that you can employ to boost your sex drive and become the best version of yourself. You will also be able to please your woman better and improve your intimate relationship.

4 Practical Male Enhancement Solutions to Make 2022 Your Biggest Year Ever!

Were you obsessing over the size of your penis for the whole of 2021? Did you miss out on action because you were afraid you wouldn’t be able to perform in the bedroom? Tired of beating yourself up over your sexual life (or lack thereof)? Hey, it happens to most guys: you obsess so much over the size of your penis and how well you use it that you sabotage yourself – and it’s got to stop!

Rather than spending all that time worrying, why not spend it more wisely, and find out what you can do to fix your ‘situation’? Here are four practical male enhancement solutions to help boost your penis size, let you perform like a beast in the bedroom, and make 2022 your best sexual year ever.

1 – Lose weight

Did you know that for every 30 pounds (13 kilograms) of body fat you gain, you won’t be able to see an inch of your penis? Now imagine being 100 pounds overweight. You essentially have a wall of belly fat cutting off contact between you and your penis. Yikes!

Gaining weight won’t just act as a barrier so you can’t see your dick, it can also choke the life out of it. When fatty deposits build up inside the arteries of the penis, this is called atherosclerosis. Studies show that this condition can restrict and cut off blood flow to the penis, resulting in erectile dysfunction.

What to do? Take action and sort it out. This year, focus on adopting a healthy diet and exercise program. Cut out empty calories such as soda, sugar-loaded coffee drinks, and alcohol. Aim to lose one pound per week, but don’t forget to take into account inches lost above all else as that’s what really matters for your health (and for your penis).

2 – Focus on muscle building

Testosterone is an essential growth hormone that’s responsible for making your balls drop, deepening your voice, and sprouting hair on your face. It’s also essential for your sex life.

Low levels of testosterone carry with them a slew of unpleasant side effects such as mood swings, weight gain, and sexual dysfunction. A lot of guys with low testosterone don’t have a sex drive and they aren’t able to get it up. This only adds fuel to the fire of the problem of having a small penis.

One of the best ways to boost testosterone is through building muscle. Along with adopting a healthy diet and focusing on weight loss, you should be using resistance training to promote lean muscle development. Studies show that resistance training has been linked to higher levels of testosterone and growth hormone, both of which are essential for a happy and healthy sex life.

Start with a three-day full-body weightlifting program. Focus on the basics: squats, bench presses, and deadlifts. Perform three to five sets of eight to twelve repetitions, always increasing the weight a bit from week to week.

3 – Male enhancement supplements

What started out as a two-product industry has exploded into a global phenomenon. There is now a supplement for everything including male enhancement. But not all penis enlargement pills are created equal. Here are the most scientifically proven male enhancement ingredients:

L-Arginine HCL: This amino acid is essential for increasing blood flow through nitric oxide production. Medications for erectile dysfunction do the same thing: boost blood flow to the penis; however, L-arginine is all natural. No prescription needed!

Ellagic Acid: Inside the pomegranate fruit, you’ll find the antioxidant super nutrient, ellagic acid. Studies have found that ellagic acid can improve blood circulation and reduce the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. If you need a reason to eat more pomegranate, this is it!

Zinc: Essential for a variety of bodily processes, zinc plays an important role in sexual health and development. In particular, studies have found that zinc supplementation has successfully increased t- levels in men with low testosterone.

Cordyceps: If you want to send your sex drive through the roof, listen up. Cordyceps is a natural aphrodisiac that has been shown to increase sexual desire as well as improve how well you can get it up.

Niacin (Vitamin B3): Another blood flow booster, niacin is a proven way to increase the blood circulation and flow you need to achieve and maintain a healthy erection.

It sounds like a lot of pills to buy and take, right? Don’t panic. There’s no need to buy each of these ingredients separately; you can find them all in one supplement: MaleExtra. Scientific studies show that MaleExtra can support proper blood flow to the penis, reduce symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and promote natural male enhancement.

4 – Surgery (Does it work?)

Finally, there’s the option of surgery. Sure, surgery works, but we’d recommend using it as a last-ditch effort.

To determine whether you should talk with your doctor about penile enlargement surgery, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you constantly worried about the size of your penis?
  • Do these thoughts keep you from enjoying a healthy social and sex life?
  • Are you experiencing high levels of anxiety?
  • Have you tried several methods (including the ones on this list) with no success?
  • Have you been considering penile enlargement surgery for at least a year?

If you’ve tried a variety of options with little or no success and you answered “yes” to most or all of the questions above, then you might want to chat with your doctor about the possibility of penile enlargement surgery.

Get big, get it up in 2022

Don’t let this new year be the same as the last. Lose weight, build muscle, and use male enhancement supplements to turn your sex life around.

What Are the Side Effects of Taking Male Enhancement Pills?

Over the counter male enhancement pills such as Viagra can benefit many men who are suffering from erectile dysfunction. Plus it’s not uncommon for men over 40 to need a pick-me-up down below. However, like any prescription based medication, they could contain potent chemicals that come with side effects.

Shameless plug alert: This is one of the reasons why Male Extra is available without a prescription. Our product is made from 100% safe and natural ingredients with absolutely no known side effects.

If you are currently taking over the counter (OTC) male enhancement pills such as Viagra, the following side effects are worth taking note of – especially as some can be very serious.

To be clear, for the purposes of this article, when we refer to male enhancement drugs or erectile dysfunction drugs, we are referring to their over the counter prescription based equivalents.

Flushed skin

Much like a sudden rush of embarrassment, flushing is a sudden warmth and redness on the skin. Although flushing can appear across the face, neck and upper chest. Flushed skin can be a result of both erectile dysfunction (ED) medication and a side effect of male enhancement pills. With increased blood flow being the main goal of male enhancement drugs, flushing of the skin is nothing to be too worried about. Much like a sudden blush, it should pass shortly.

This is a common side effect of OTC male enhancement pills, as your skin can be one of the first parts of your body to show signs of this medicine.

Congestion

A common side effect of over the counter male enhancement drugs, you may experience a stuffy nose or congestion – although these side effects usually disappear on their own. In some cases, you may experience a runny nose instead, but there’s not much to worry about as this is common. Most medications have low-level side effects and male enhancement pills are no different here.

If nasal problems persist, get in touch with your doctor.

Permanent penis damage

While you’re trying to gain a rock hard erection, if it’s lasting for over 4 hours, you may have a problem. Believe it or not, the medical term for an erection that lasts too long (yep, that really is a thing) is priapism – which, left untreated, can cause permanent damage. This side effect of penis pills can be a little overwhelming, but if you don’t seek medical attention you’ll risk permanent erectile dysfunction and even scarring.

Although it may feel a little embarrassing to call the doctor about your hard-on, it’s best to save yourself from potentially permanent damage.

Ringing ears

Although not a very common side effect, noticing that your ears are ringing can be the result of starting a male enhancement pill. It can be quite uncomfortable and a little alarming at first, usually involving a high pitched sound in one or both of your ears. It may change pitch before passing. If it does continue, consult your doctor. However, there are more hearing-related side effects associated with male enhancement pills…

Hearing loss

In more rare cases, sudden hearing loss has been reported as a side effect of certain male enhancement drugs. One study found that 47 cases resulted in permanent hearing loss, with it taking quick effect – occurring within 24 hours of taking a male enhancement pill. Although this is rare, it is possible. If you start to notice any hearing-related side effects within a short amount of time of taking a male enhancement pill, call a doctor immediately.

Headache

Headaches are a very common side effect of enlargement pills. Since their intention is to increase blood flow, often your head can feel the effects too. I wouldn’t worry about it too much, though, as this side effect usually passes on its own. This tends to be an across-the-board side effect of male enhancement drugs, so switching brands may not help, unfortunately.

Chat to your doctor if the side effect continues as there may be something that can help prevent them.

Upset stomach

You’d be surprised what a male enhancement drug can affect, and your digestive system can be quite an easy target. During this time, you may experience indigestion, diarrhea or nausea. These are pretty common side effects of penis pills, but they’re definitely a little more uncomfortable than a blocked-up nose or headache. There are ways to help, however – try to mix up your diet slightly or if it continues, grab an over the counter Pepto-Bismol.

Making your stomach feel a bit uncomfortable is a common side effect of enhancement pills.

Vision loss

Sudden vision loss is a very serious – but very possible – side effect from male enlargement pills. Although rare, there have been reports of sudden blindness from men using male enhancement pills such as Cialis and Viagra. Although the aim of male enhancement drugs is to increase blood flow, the blindness can occur when the flow to your optic nerve is blocked.

So, if your eyes start feeling the effects of male enhancement pills, get in touch with a doctor immediately. Although this is considered a rare side effect, as of 2013 there had been 43 reported cases of blindness as a result of erectile dysfunction medication – with 38 of those alone coming from men using Viagra.

Dizziness

We’re familiar with seeing medication warnings regarding dizziness, with male enhancement pills also falling into this category. When you first start taking male enhancement drugs, allow your body a little time to get used to it. As many other medications warn, don’t operate heavy machinery or drive if you’re feeling a little unsteady.

Much like flushing of the skin, this feeling should pass. But if it doesn’t go away or starts to feel worse, always consults your doctor.

Allergic reactions

If you are unfamiliar with male enhancement drugs, there’s always the possibility that you’ll have an allergic reaction. These can vary greatly between mild allergic responses and those that are pretty damn serious. This can vary hugely from person to person. However, if you start to notice an itchiness, skin rash or hives, the chances are it’s an allergic reaction. Our skin is often one of the first places to respond to new medication – so if you notice anything as a side effect of taking male enhancement pills, stop right away.

Always contact a doctor if you notice any type of allergic reaction to erectile dysfunction medications.

Muscle pain

Aches and muscle pain may occur as a side effect of male enhancement drugs. These are common in the lower back or throughout other muscles, and can usually be treated with over-the-counter pain relief.

Always speak to a medical professional before taking pain relief alongside male enhancement pills as some medications can clash and cause further issues.

Clash of medications

When you take multiple medications, there is always the opportunity that some may clash and cause a reaction. The side effects from this can vary from quite mild to extremely serious, depending on the medications. If you’re considering taking male enhancement pills alongside your usual medications, it’s always best to check beforehand to avoid any nasty side effects.

According to Viagra, it should not be taken alongside medications known as nitrates, which are usually prescribed for hypertension or chest pain.

Before getting started with a male enhancement pill, consult your doctor if you’re currently taking any medications.

Stroke

This is a very rare side effect of male enhancement pills, and when it has occurred it has been predominantly been in men with an underlying medical condition. A 2003 study linked Viagra to increased stroke risk, although the medication is generally very safe. Symptoms of a stroke as the result of male enhancement drugs usually include confusion, difficulty controlling one side of the body, vision problems and more.

If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately.

Heart attack

Viagra state that in rare cases, a heart attack can be a (very) serious side effect. Their website also points out that most (although not all) of the men who experienced a heart attack as a result of their product had an underlying heart condition beforehand. Although each person’s situation can vary greatly, Viagra is generally safe for men with a heart condition.

However, it’s always best to consult with your doctor before you start taking a male enhancement drug.

Death

The last in our list, but the most serious. In very rare circumstances, death can be the result of taking over the counter male enhancement drugs. This can be the repercussion from a variety of factors we’ve already mentioned – including a heart attack, stroke or very serious allergic reaction.

Those with underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk of death, which is why we always recommend your receive an evaluation from your doctor or another medical professional prior to taking any new medication. In most cases, however, no side effects or very minimal side effects can happen.

Conclusion

Although some of these side effects can feel quite scary, the reality is, they are quite rare. From headaches to muscle pains, some of these side effects can be quite uncomfortable, although not life-threatening.

To eliminate all side of effects of male enhancement supplements, we recommend giving Male Extra a try. It’s made from 100% safe and natural ingredients and there are absolutely no known side effects.

What are the early signs of erectile dysfunction?

You may feel as though your hard-on is always raring to go, keeping both you and your partner satisfied. But sadly, erectile dysfunction (ED) can rear its ugly head at any moment.

Yep, that’s right. You could feel like the hottest stud in the bedroom and still be on your way to erectile dysfunction.

Fortunately, there are some things to look out for when it comes to ED.

What are the early signs of erectile dysfunction?

Early signs of ED

You’re struggling to get hard – or stay hard

If you’re hard enough to perform as you usually do, you may not even consider the possibility of erectile dysfunction. However, any change in your erection can signal the early stages of ED.

While ED won’t happen overnight, any gradual changes in your hard-on can be a sign you can’t afford to ignore. You may notice that your erection isn’t as firm as it usually is, or you may be struggling to keep it that way. Either way, these changes from your own personal norm are worth noting.

We all know that stress, a lack of sleep and alcohol can affect your ability to get hard, but if you can’t think of a reason for feeling limp, it could be a sign of a bigger issue.

Sex isn’t on your mind as much as it used to be

If you’re no longer finding yourself daydreaming about sex, there’s a high chance that your testosterone levels are a little lower than normal.

As the main hormone responsible for your sex drive, a lower level of testosterone can lead to losing your hard-on – therefore killing your sex life.

One of the best ways to increase your testosterone levels is exercise. Incorporating strength training into your exercise regime can give your libido the boost it needs. While cardio exercise will truly get your heart pumping, helping to increase your sexual ability and keep that all-important wood.

Morning glory is a thing of the past

Morning glory

We all remember those surprise hard-ons, right? Waking up with morning wood may often feel like a burden, but it can actually be a good thing. Your morning glory indicates that the blood vessels to your cock are healthy and well, allowing blood to flow.

So, while a morning hard-on may feel like a total inconvenience, not waking up with one more frequently could be a telltale sign of erectile dysfunction in the long run.

Your cholesterol or blood pressure reading is looking high

Remember us briefly mentioning your blood vessels? Well, it’s a topic you need to pay attention to when it comes to a high cholesterol or blood pressure reading. Which in turn, will damage your blood vessels, therefore making their mission to flow blood to your penis all that much more difficult.

So, if you’re wondering why you’re not getting the hard-on you deserve, it could be down to your cholesterol or blood pressure. If you’re feeling uncertain, head to your GP for a quick examination.

You’ve recently started taking a new prescription medication

While you may have gotten on top of your high blood pressure with medication, unfortunately, these particular meds can also impact your arousal.

Both antidepressants and high blood pressure medication can make it trickier for hormones and chemical signals (the ones you need to make you feel aroused) to reach the brain.

If you’re struggling to get hard, it could be worth taking a look at your prescription medication to help pin down the possible culprit.

Your gums are feeling tender and bleed easily

Checking gums signs of ED

Swollen, painful or bleeding gums are usually associated with gum disease. But did you know how these problems in your mouth can set off a chain of events down below?

But how? Well, with gum disease leading to inflammation throughout your body, this inflammation can damage your blood vessels – therefore affecting the blood flow that keeps your dick performing how it should.

Your kidneys are causing problems

You may not know it, but kidney disease can be a huge problem for keeping hard. Medical conditions like these can have an impact on your hormone levels, blood circulation (we already covered blood vessels!) and even your energy.

With kidney disease causing an emotional and physical impact, it comes as no surprise that it can impact your performance in the bedroom. It can even cause some guys to lose interest in sex – nevertheless, with treatment, you can be feeling hard in no time. Not all men with kidney issues will experience erectile dysfunction, however, but it’s always worth consulting a doctor for the best possible outcome.

You’re struggling in the sleep department too

We’ve already mentioned that a lack of sleep can steal the glory away from your hard-on. Whether you suffer from sleep apnea or you’re feeling particularly stressed, a lack of sleep can cause your testosterone levels to dip. This combination can kill your sex drive, making it even more difficult to get a hard-on when you want it most.

That morning glory doesn’t seem so bad now, does it?

Sleeping too little or too much can lead to problems down below. Make sure you get enough sleep each night – between 8 and 9 hours is the perfect spot to hit.

How you can improve your sex life and power up your erections

A combination of exercise, healthy diet, sleep and important vitamins can all work towards improving your erections.

Male Extra combines herbal supplements, zinc and niacin to produce serious results in a short period of time. Working towards a healthy sex life includes plenty of exercise, eating healthy, avoiding drugs and alcohol and the right amount of sleep.

These steps to improving your health will keep you harder for longer, avoiding damage to your all-important blood vessels and boosting your testosterone levels. So you can get back to daydreaming about sex and feeling firm in the bedroom.

A Difference Between a Penis Massage and Male Enhancement Exercises

It’s pretty standard for men to want to enhance the size of their penis or improve their sexual performance. Men tend to attach a fair amount of their self-confidence to their sexual ability, performance, and appearance, and as such it’s normal for them to want to be the best that they can be.

There are lots of different male enhancement exercises that are touted to help men with their sexual performance – but how many of these work? The short answer is that quite a few of them do work, but they require dedication and they might not produce results as profound as advertisements would tell you.

What Will I Learn

In this article, we’re going to discuss some of the best male enhancement exercises and explain how they’re different than a simple penis massage (though certain types of penis massage can be useful for enhancing your performance!)

The Best Male Enhancement Exercises

There are quite a few different male enhancement exercises out there, and not all of them produce the same results. It’s a good idea to consider the differences between these different types of exercises and try them out so you can figure out which ones work best for you.

Stretching

Stretching is a simple method that can allegedly increase the size of your penis. However, a cautious male would be aware that stretching might only increase the length of your flaccid penis.

This is because stretching is generally done when you’re flaccid, and as such, you’ll only really be increasing the stretchiness of your penis skin. While this can be great for impressing ladies with your long, dangling schlong, it probably won’t do much for enhancing the size of your erection or changing your ability to penetrate.

Penis stretching can be done pretty easily, and if you do it regularly you should be able to put on at least an extra half-inch.

  • Grab your flaccid penis by the head. Pull it forward until it’s stretched out fully.
  • Hold the stretch for 15 seconds, then let go.
  • Shake it about. Do the windmill. Do any kind of movement to help your penis relax.
  • Repeat the process, stretching in all directions (left, right, up, down, and on the diagonals, if you want) so that you get a full stretch.

Be cautious when stretching, and don’t do it too hard or too many times per day. If you experience pain or discomfort, you’re going too hard.

Jelqing

Jelqing is one of the more popular penis enhancement exercises and one of the few that has been scientifically studied since it originated in ancient Arabic times. Jelqing generally provides more results than some of the other techniques on the list.

Jelqing helps encourage blood flow to the penis which can enhance the size of your erections. It can also physically stretch the penis, increasing flaccid penis length. Furthermore, jelqing can cause microtears in the penis that can heal over in a similar way that torn muscle tissues heal over to increase muscle mass. This can improve your girth.

Jelqing is similar to stretching but the process is a bit more refined. You don’t just stretch willy-nilly (pun intended). You make a specific shape and use that to draw blood through your penis.

You may want to use lube when jelqing to reduce the chance of injury.

  • Make sure that you’re about 3/4 erect. You don’t want to be totally flaccid or totally erect.
  • Touch your thumb and forefinger so they’re making a circle.
  • Using this shape, grip the base of your semi-erect penis. Applying not too much pressure, pull forward towards the tip of your penis.
  • Repeat this process for around ten minutes, once a day, for at least a month.

Squeezing

Despite the simple name, squeezing is considered a more complicated technique. You should be careful when doing squeezing because if you’re not doing it right, you run the risk of making a mistake and hurting yourself.

Basic precautionary tips involve not squeezing too hard or for too long. As soon as you start to feel discomfort or pain, you had better stop for the day.

  • You want to make sure that you have a full erection when you’re doing squeezing.
  • Just like you were jelqing, touch your index finger and your thumb together to make an O shape. Hold the base of your penis with this hand, and make the same shape with your other hand.
  • With your other hand, squeeze your penis. The goal is that you’re going to be stretching the tissue of your penis: by applying pressure at one point, this stretches the skin in the other areas of your penis.

This technique is good for increasing flaccid penis length, and some men have reported success in increasing the length of both erect and flaccid penis length.

Penis massage

Edging

Edging is a great tool for men who are hoping to overcome premature ejaculation. Some men have also reported that it can be useful for working through erectile dysfunction. And, no matter how you look at it, edging (if you continue to edge instead of releasing at the end of the session) is a fantastic way to build willpower, mental stamina, and sexual strength.

Edging basically involves masturbating until you’re right before the point of no return. This is the point that you reach right before you orgasm when you realize that ejaculation is imminent.

By stopping right before the point of no return, waiting a few moments, and then resuming masturbation, you can increase your sexual prowess. First, you’ll notice that it probably takes you longer to reach the point of no return. Do this several times a day and you’ll find that your sexual stamina increases.

Psychologically, this also trains you to stop associating the sexual act and sexual pleasure with orgasm and ejaculation – especially if you do your edging sessions without having an orgasm at all. 

One of the main reasons men experience PE is because they have trained themselves from an early age to focus on reaching orgasm during sexual activity. Over time, their bodies adapt and try to ejaculate immediately upon experiencing sexual stimuli.

Edging can also be useful for training your PC muscles by actually going over the point of no return, clenching the muscles, and having an orgasm without ejaculating.

The one thing to be aware of during edging is that it can lead to serious porn addiction, especially if you’re learning to have orgasms without ejaculating. 

Pubococcygeus Training / Kegels

The pubococcygeus, or PC muscle is what you’re training when you’re doing kegel exercises. These muscles are involved in ejaculation, urination, and bowel movements. Training and strengthening them allows you to gain more control over these experiences.

  • First, identify your PC muscle. This is best done by stopping yourself from peeing while you’re midstream. This contraction is the same contraction that you will contract during a kegel.
  • There are various theories about the best way to do these exercises. Some say to hold the muscle for as long as you can, as many times a day. Others recommend doing sets of 20, three times a day. Yet others say you should alternate between sets of long squeezes and “power kegels,” which are flexing and relaxing the muscle as fast as you can several dozen times in a row.

What Are the Benefits and Dangers of Male Enhancement Exercises

There are lots of benefits of male enhancement exercises, but there are also some things that you should be cautious of if you’re starting to practice these techniques. Penis health is important!

Benefits

Some of the exercises are known to help enhance the girth and length of your penis. Jelqing, squeezing, and stretching are all known to help enhance the length of your penis – at least when it’s flaccid.

Other techniques can be useful for enhancing your actual sexual performance. 

Edging, for example, can help train you not to ejaculate quickly while having sex. Kegels can be useful for helping you train the actual muscle responsible for ejaculation, which can allow you to basically “override” the ejaculation response.

Precautions

While these benefits are fantastic, it’s also a good idea to be cautious when you’re doing anything with your penis. It’s a sensitive organ and you want to make sure that you don’t damage it.

Penis exercises like stretching and jelqing can actually damage the skin of your penis if you do them too hard, too often, or for too long. This can lead to scarring and can actually impair the function of your penis.

You may also experience other unpleasantries such as ruptured veins, discoloration or spots, inflammation, sores, or numbness. Remember – don’t go too hard! Don’t over-stretch or injure yourself trying to get results overnight. These practices take time to deliver results, and if you work yourself too hard you could get hurt.

If you do too many kegel exercises or flex too hard, you can actually do damage to your PC muscle. This can have an effect on your sexual performance, your bowel function or your urinary continence.

Edging is also dangerous because it can lead to psychological porn addiction, which can become an impediment. Some men with serious porn addictions tend to neglect their work or social lives and may reject relationships instead of preferring to stay home and masturbate.

Tips to avoid injury or psychological problems:

  • Wrapping a warm cloth or towel around the penis helps promote blood flow and can reduce the chances of you getting injured.
  • Use lube, especially when jelqing, to prevent injury.
  • Stop when you feel pain or discomfort.
  • Avoid using porn when edging.
  • Be patient!

How to Massage a Penis – Guide

Let’s start with what a penis massage is not: a handjob or masturbation.

Penis massages can be done by yourself, but they’re also a great way to get intimate with your partner. Generally, penis massages are done without the intention of actually ejaculating. In this way, they can work a lot like edging in that they help you dissociate with the idea of penile stimulation leading to orgasm. 

This can increase your sexual stamina and make it take longer for you to ejaculate. Aside from that, they feel great.

So what is a penis massage? It’s just like a massage anywhere else on your body: a slow, relaxed, and often sensual form of touch that makes you feel good. There isn’t really a ‘point’ aside from that, though it can be used as a form of ejaculation delay training.

When your partner is giving a penis massage, they should remember that the focus is on allowing the penis to do whatever it wants to do. If you come, great! If you don’t, great! If you don’t get erect, great! It’s all the same.

Giving a Penis Massage

  • Make sure that you (and your partner) are both comfortable. You want to make sure that nobody’s muscles get tired so that you can both enjoy the massage.
  • Make sure that you have lots of lube. You want to have as little friction as possible. This also allows the massage to last longer without becoming uncomfortable.
  • You can use a timer. A good recommendation is half an hour, though some people prefer to do more than that. A half-hour is a good minimum to ensure that you can really get relaxed and into the experience.
  • Explore! This isn’t a handjob, and you don’t want to do repetitive jerking motions. You want to explore the different areas and sensitivities of the penis by touching, rubbing, pressing, and playing with all of them. Don’t ignore the balls!
  • Play with the edge. If your partner is giving you the massage, get them to take you close to the edge by paying attention to your breathing and body motions. This is great because they’ll be able to learn more about your physical responses during sex so they can pull back if you’re getting close to coming.

The end goal doesn’t have to be ejaculation, but men who aren’t familiar with tantric practices and sexual energy are probably going to feel pretty uncomfortable if they get a penis massage and don’t get to come at the end. 

What’s a Difference Between Natural Male Enhancement Exercises and a Penis Massage

While a penis massage can be used as a form of male enhancement exercise, it’s generally not considered one. Male enhancement exercises are done specifically to enhance male performance and penis size, whereas penis massages are done more for the sheer experience and enjoyability of it.

Conclusion

Male enhancement exercises and penis massages are very different things. However, when they are both done together, they can be a great way to learn about and strengthen your sex organs. Now that you know more about these practices, go ahead and get started.

How to Increase Libido in Men – The Best Natural Libido Boosters

If testosterone levels can vary amongst men, then it makes sense that libidos can vary too. So while you might think of yourself as a virile stallion; there is always a chance that your sexual desire could plummet, and that you might find yourself struggling to get it up.

So what can you do? How can you ensure that you aren’t another statistic? Well, the good news is there are a number of ways to restore your sex drive and ensure that it is in prime condition. From the foods you eat to proven libido boosters and male libido supplements, to getting more sleep; in this article, you shall discover how to increase your libido 100% naturally and safely.

Causes of low libido in men

Sadly, there could be a number of reasons why your libido has dropped. Yet, the most common trigger is fluctuations in your hormone levels, namely drops in natural testosterone production.

The Science:

Primarily produced in your testicles, testosterone can affect your appearance (facial hair), sexual development, sperm production, bone, and muscle mass, and you guessed it – your sex drive.

Now, before you panic – falling T-levels are a natural part of the aging process, meaning it is inevitable that you will see a decline once you hit your 30s. However, while for the majority of us these drops won’t outwardly affect our bodies – aside from a little weight gain and loss in muscle mass – should your testosterone levels fall below 300ng/dL, it CAN impact on your libido, erection strength, longevity, and ultimately your ability to get it up.

In fact, according to the American Urological Association, 2 out of 10 men aged over 60 suffer from low testosterone and libido levels; while 1 in 5 men have reported losses in sexual interest. This suggests that testosterone and your libido are strongly linked.

Yet, a waning sex drive cannot be blamed on falling testosterone levels alone. There are other issues which can also affect both testosterone production and sexual desire:

Psychological issues

Feelings of stress and anxiety – resulting from work, family or relationship problems – can all have an impact on your arousal levels and sexual desire. Depression, in particular, can lead to a lack of interest in all things you’ve previously found pleasurable I.e. sex. However, while you can resolve this with the help of antidepressants, one of the most common side effects of some of these pills is low libido, leaving you in an endless cycle of anxiety.

Stress is another common trigger, as alongside disrupting your hormone levels, it can also cause your arteries to narrow; hindering blood flows and making it harder for you to maintain an erection.

Medical issues

Diabetes, obesity, chronic pain, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels can all have a profound effect on your libido. Chronic illnesses such as cancer, as well as kidney and heart failure have all been linked to a reduction in sperm production.

Hormone levels

Testosterone is not the only hormone that will mess with your libido. A combination of low dopamine and thyroid hormones with high levels of prolactin have all been found to affect your sex drive.

Likewise, low dopamine levels (which help your brain to send messages around your body) can harm your libido. During one study on participants with Parkinson’s disease, when they were given dopamine-stimulating drugs, they saw rises in sexual desire.

Sleep deprivation

Studies by the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine on non-obese men with apnea have revealed that not sleeping enough can affect testosterone levels, leading to reductions in sexual activity. This point is further proven by a study on healthy, young men with good testosterone levels. They saw falls of 10-15% after just a week of sleeping only 5 hours a night.

Aging

We mentioned aging earlier in this article, yet it is one of the biggest symptoms of low libido. As teenagers we have no qualms becoming aroused or getting it up as our testosterone levels are at an all-time high. However, as we get older, as our T-levels fall so does our ability to enjoy sex. From you taking longer to orgasm, ejaculate and become aroused, to struggling to stay hard (and for as long); age can influence your performance in the sack.

Too little or too much exercise

We are all well aware that not exercising enough can contribute to weight gain and problems with your heart – both of which can influence your libido (as your body struggles to transport blood). However, the notion that too much exercise can also harm it may come as surprising.

The problem rests with your hormone levels. When you exercise moderately it can help combat obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes, while also lowering your cortisol levels (a stress hormone). Yet, push too hard and this can have the opposite effect and can cause your libido to fall.

Substance abuse

Alcohol, drugs, and smoking can all harm your libido. In fact, drinking 14 mixed drinks a week has been reported to lower testosterone production while smoking tobacco and marijuana can also negatively impact sperm production and movement.

Foods that increase libido

Okay, you know the causes and have by now probably figured out why your libido has vanished. Yet what can you do to resolve it? How can you restore your sex drive without having to resort to medication?

Interestingly enough, you can revitalize your libido by simply rethinking your eating habits and reviewing what you put into your body. It all stems down to improving your blood flow, circulation and heart. Do that and you can ensure that your body is able to efficiently react to feelings of arousal.

Foods that increase libido

Take the following suggestions. All are proven foods that can increase your libido and restore your passion for sex:

Mediterranean diet

There is a reason this diet earns the top spot – from eating plenty of lean proteins and vegetables to lowering your sugar intake; these foods can help to keep the pounds at bay and ensure that your heart remains healthy (instantly preventing health issues i.e. diabetes, heart disease, obesity, etc.)

Fruit

Certain fruits – figs, bananas, and avocados – are believed to have aphrodisiac properties that can help to awaken your libido. This is due to their breadth of vitamins and minerals which work in synergy to enhance blood flows to your genital

Dark Chocolate

During one study, the phenylethylamine found in dark chocolate was reported to boost serotonin release – a hormone that is known to lift your mood and heighten feelings of desire.

Further research has linked the presence of phenylethylamine to the release of endorphins and dopamine which can also help to lower your inhibitions and leave you feeling good.

Wine

As long as you stick to one glass, drinking wine can eliminate inhibitions and put you at ease, making it easier for your body to respond to intimacy.

Walnuts

High in omega-3 fatty acids, these healthy fats can help to lower your cholesterol and in turn minimize heart disease. Another bonus walnuts bring to the table, is their ability to boost arginine, an amino acid that is believed to relax blood vessels and enable your body – particularly your dick – to receive sufficient blood and oxygen when aroused.

Oysters

This well-known aphrodisiac is full of zinc which can help boost healthy sperm production, as well as a number of amino acids that are reputed to positively influence testosterone levels. Combining these nutrients can help to heighten your sexual appetite – just like they did with Casanova.

Asparagus

This vegetable is incredibly nutritious thanks to its high folate content. In fact, it is responsible for the creation of histamine, a chemical that is released when you orgasm. As you can rightly guess, adding this to your diet will make your desire even more intense.

Spices – Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Cayenne

These spices don’t just make foods more flavorsome; for centuries nutmeg and cinnamon have been used (by various cultures) to heighten desire, as it stimulates increased circulation.

Watermelon

This juicy fruit is high in citrulline, a compound that is known to relax your blood vessels and boost blood flow. Again, this can strengthen your libido and arousal.

Bananas

Rich in potassium, this mineral is great for supporting muscle contractions – which is vital for great sex. Similarly, this compound can boost testosterone production.

Other natural libido boosters

The likelihood is – there is more than one thing affecting your libido. If anything, you might be dealing with multiple issues.

Because of this, you shouldn’t rely on dietary changes alone to boost your sex drive. Instead, we recommend incorporating the following natural libido boosters into your daily routine, so you can revamp your sex drive from the foundation up:

Manage anxiety

Decreasing anxiety triggered by life stress, relationships, and even performance issues, can all help to elevate your desire.

The trick is finding the right tool for you…

For many, simply exercising more and talking openly with loved ones is enough to reduce anxiety. However, you can also try:

  • Picking a new hobby
  • Sleeping more
  • Working on relationships – plan activities outside of the bedroom, such as going on dates. Likewise, you should aim to improve communication by setting aside time for each other. This will increase intimacy, as well as take pressure off of your bedroom antics. If anything, it will help you to grow more comfortable around each other.
  • Meditating – taking slow and deep breaths during stressful situations
  • Speaking to a therapist/counselor
  • Eating a nutritious diet

Foreplay

Benefits of higher libido

Touching, kissing, using toys and performing oral can all help to heighten your sexual experiences. In turn, they will give your body more time to respond to desire.

Sleep quality

Aside from helping to reduce feelings of anxiety; getting a good night’s sleep can also improve your energy levels and mood, which in turn can strengthen your libido. For this reason, aim to get up to 8-10 hours’ sleep a night. Less than 5 will impact testosterone production and ultimately your libido.

Regular exercise

A 2015 study on men who were receiving androgen deprivation therapy (which is known to lower testosterone), discovered that regular exercise helped them to address their body image concerns, flagging libidos, and relationship concerns.

Healthy weight

Given the connection between obesity and declining sex drives, it makes sense that losing weight will improve your sexual health. Your testosterone levels – as well as your confidence – will rise as the weight drops off.

To achieve this – and ensure that the weight stays off – we suggest adopting a diet that is high is proteins, low in carbs and contains a healthy balance of good fats, vegetables, and fruit. Likewise, you should exercise regularly, as this will naturally increase your energy levels.

Quit smoking

Smoking has got a strong reputation for reducing blood vessel dilation, which can hinder blood flow to your dick and organs. Quitting can help to boost your sex drive and endurance.

Boost your self-confidence

The way you feel about your body can impact how you respond to sexual situations. After all, if you’ve got a poor perception of yourself, it is likely that it will put you off having sex – and enjoying it – as you will have to ‘reveal’ yourself to your partner.

To elevate your confidence, self-esteem and ultimately your sex drive, we encourage you to focus on your positive attributes. This will help you to stay in the moment and concentrate on your pleasure.

Meditation

We mentioned this idea briefly when discussing stress; yet, meditation is a great way to eliminate anxiety and ensure that you feel relaxed and more open to having sex. Alternatively, if you don’t fancy meditating you can also try tai chi and yoga.

The Best Male libido supplements

While changing your diet, exercising more and getting extra sleep, can all make a difference to your libido; if you’re truly concerned about the impact low testosterone will have on your sex life, then there are other avenues you can explore to turn it around i.e. male libido supplements.

These herbal remedies aim to revitalize your body’s existing bodily functions, so you can efficiently: create testosterone; heighten nitric oxide release; improve brain signals and response times (when you’re aroused), and protect yourself from the negative consequences of diabetes, heart disease, obesity, etc.

Now, there are tonnes of male libido supplements out there, and we could spend forever listing them and going over their pros and cons. However, the key to choosing the right one is looking at their ingredients list.

You see, you need the right combination of ingredients – in the right amounts – to achieve optimal results. For that reason, we suggest looking for the following ingredients when reviewing products.

According to a 2015 study, each of these herbs helped to improve the sexual function and erection strength of participants:

  • Maca
  • Tribulus
  • Ginkgo Biloba – research has found this Chinese leaf to be effective at combating erectile dysfunction.
  • Ginseng
  • Yohimbine – this bark is believed to work a bit like Viagra, as it aims to boost blood flow and make it easier for you to maintain an erection.

Male Extra is a primary example of a male libido supplement that combines multiple proven and natural ingredients to help improve your sex life. From enhancing your erection strength and stamina to improving orgasm longevity and your penis size (by a couple of inches); this libido booster can revitalize your bedroom performance, and make testosterone and libido issues a thing of the past.

In fact, Male Extra purposefully uses L’arginine, zinc, pomegranate, Cordyceps, Niacin, MSM and L-methionine to help combat erectile dysfunction, as it seeks to: naturally, increase nitric oxide; block the conversion of histidine into histamine (stopping you from climaxing too quickly); improve blood flows, and stimulate testosterone production – all of which are essential for healthy, lasting erections.

In other words, by placing all of these ingredients into one unique formula; together they can help you to achieve optimal sexual function.

Male extra supplement

Conclusion

As you can see, learning how to increase libido levels doesn’t have to be a long or perilous journey. Instead, by switching your focus to its common triggers i.e. falling testosterone levels, stress, lack of sleep, poor dietary choices and negative self-image; you CAN turn your sex drive around and ensure that it remains fulfilling and satisfying.

Likewise, adding proven libido boosters such as Male Extra into the mix can help eliminate low libidos in men, as they will effectively support your body – from the inside out.

From replenishing your zinc, nitric oxide and testosterone levels, to providing you with the tools to maintain and support an erection; with Male Extra you can learn how to boost your libido in a matter of weeks.

Discover Male Enhancement Pills That Work Fast to Improve Your Sex Life

For as long as the internet’s been around, people have been falling victim to a certain type of advertisement that we’re all familiar with male enhancement pills.

Many of us were in our childhood or early teenage years when the internet first became widespread, and we were often told by our parents that these ads were nonsense, drivel, and spam. These pills didn’t work, and there was no point in paying attention to the ads. They were scams, and they just wanted your money.

But the popularity of male enhancement pills hasn’t gone down. If anything, it’s increased. In this article, we’re going to discuss whether or not male enhancement pills can actually be effective. If so, we’ll discuss which one’s are the best and how exactly they do what they do.

Table of Contents:

The search for male enhancement pills that work fast

The search for male enhancement products is nothing new.

In fact, male enhancement has been a topic for at least as long as humans have recognized the importance of herbal medicine. Traditional medicine systems such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine have been prescribing herbs and medicines for male enhancement for more than five thousand years.

Granted, thousands of years ago it was generally believed that fertility – a man’s ability to actually conceive a child – was a bit more important than his ability to be able to perform for extended periods or the size of his penis. However, the basic premise has remained the same: men seem to have an innate desire to perform at their sexual best.

This desire has led to the current situation that we see where men are looking for pills, supplements, and exercises to help them with their sexual performance. One of the differences these days, however, is that men aren’t just interested in improving fertility: they are also looking for the best male enhancement pills for length and girth.

There are plenty of reasons for this.

  • Many men base their self-confidence based on how well they are able to perform for women.
  • A man’s ability to perform and conceive a child relates to his masculinity and, some men believe, their overall ability to be a strong human
  • Men want to be able to perform well to satisfy their partners in relationships

It’s drilled into men’s heads since early teenagehood that these things define manhood. We need to be strong, have big penises, and be able to perform well sexually – otherwise, we’re not men. These beliefs have led to the marketing success of male enhancement supplements.

What is a normal penis size

Most men have worried, at one time or another, about the size of their penis. Generally, men are worried that their penis will look too small to be impressive, or that it won’t be large enough to please their partner.

Most men are pleasantly surprised to learn that the average penis size is actually quite a lot smaller than what many guys would suggest.

Another thing that many men don’t realize is that the size of their flaccid penis doesn’t necessarily reflect the size of their erect penis. Men who have a fairly short flaccid penis length may find that they have an above-average length of penis when it’s erect. Conversely, men who have large flaccid penises may find that they don’t actually increase in length once they become erect.

The ‘average’ penis length is around 5 inches, and a penis shouldn’t really be considered short unless it’s less than 3 inches long. For the most part, penises around the 5-inch mark are average size and are plenty big enough to satisfy most women.

To measure your penis, simply use a ruler. Get an erection and measure your penis from base to tip.

If you are still concerned, talk to your partner to get an objective answer regarding the length of your penis. Chances are, your partner cares less than you think they do. More important than penis size is communication, technique, and meeting your partner’s needs.

Male enhancement methods

There are many different ways that men are trying to enhance their sexual ability. These methods have been tried with varying degrees of success:

Male enhancement pills

Male enhancement pills are one of the most popular ways that men try to enhance their penis length and sexual performance. The main reason that male enhancement pills are so popular is the same reason that herbal supplements and prescription medications are so popular: they promise a quick fix to a long-standing problem.
Later in the article, we’ll discuss whether or not these pills can actually do the job.

Lotions and creams

Penis creams and lotions contain ingredients like vitamins and herbs that allegedly increase the size of your penis. At best, these lotions and creams may be able to enhance blood flow to your penis making it easier to get an erection. It’s unlikely they’ll increase the length of your penis permanently.

Pumps

Penis pumps, also known as vacuum pumps, draw blood into the penis. These can stretch the skin of the penis and make it appear larger. However, done improperly, vacuum pumps can lead to damage. They also don’t tend to make the penis larger permanently, and if they do, it’s usually just by increasing the length of the flaccid penis.

Penis exercises

Penis exercises like jelqing and Kegels are supposed to be able to help enhance the length of the penis.

  • Jelqing is a technique that allows men to create microtears in the skin of their penis by pulling blood from the base of their semi-erect penis towards the tip. When these microtears heal, they can increase the girth of the penis.
  • Kegels help to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles and can lead to stronger and more firm erections.

Surgery and medication

For men who are unwilling to try natural methods, or who have not had success using exercises or natural male enhancement pills, there are more serious options.

Prescription drugs like Viagra and Cialis can help enhance a man’s performance by encouraging long-lasting erections. Unfortunately, these drugs also tend to cause fairly serious side effects.

Men can also get surgery to permanently enhance the length of their penis or make it easier to get an erection. Again, this should be used as a last resort.

Link between herbs and male enhancement

As mentioned above, herbs have been used for thousands of years to help lead to male enhancement.

Science is now catching up to these ancient methods and recognizing that natural medicines can definitely increase male sexual performance. In fact, many of the ingredients in the top male enhancement pills are simply natural medicines that have been adapted for sexual use.

Here are some of the best herbs for increasing male sexual performance.

  • Panax ginseng has been used for hundreds of years to help promote blood flow throughout the body, enhance libido, and increase fertility.
  • Fenugreek is an ingredient commonly used in curry that has also been shown to enhance libido and lead to improved sexual performance in men.
  • Pomegranate juice and extract contains valuable nutritional compounds that have been shown to enhance male sexual health.
  • Maca root is a powerful herbal supplement that was once reserved for warriors and royalty in Peru. It is now used for its potent ability to enhance male libido, sexual desire, and performance.
  • Horny goat weed is an aptly named herb that was first recognized by a Chinese farmer who noticed that his goats would have abnormal amounts of sex after eating the herb.

How do male enhancement pills work

Male enhancement pills that work fast are generally a scam. Male enhancement pills that DO work tend to work in a more holistic manner, and work in a variety of different ways depending on the ingredients involved.

Generally, the ingredients used in natural male enhancement pills help with the following things.

  • Increasing blood flow throughout the body. The penis needs a steady supply of blood to become erect. By increasing blood flow in the body, it becomes easier for men to gain a stronger and more reliable erection.
  • Increasing libido. Many herbal supplements help to increase libido and sex drive in men, which can make it easier for them to get strong erections.
  • Increasing sperm count and fertility. Some ingredients help a man produce more sperm, increase the quality of his sperm, and can intensify orgasms and ejaculation. These things can make it easier for a man to actually impregnate his partner.
  • Increasing energy levels and vitality. Many herbal supplements help increase a man’s vigor, stamina, and energy levels, making it easier for them to perform at a high level of intensity for an extended period.

Are male enhancement supplements effective?

It depends on what you’re attempting to achieve.

In short, male enhancement pills that work fast will very rarely deliver results as serious as the ones that you see in advertisements. It’s quite common to see advertisements for pills that will extend the length of your penis by an inch within a week, or that will make you able to last for hours.

That’s not going to happen.

However, with patience, dedication, and a combination of natural male enhancement pills and exercises, you can certainly see an improvement.

The problem is that many men take these pills and expect to wake up in the morning with an 8-inch penis and a rock-hard erection. What these pills really do is help to encourage libido, promote healthy blood flow to the penis, and boost energy levels.

What you choose to do with all these improvements is up to you, but if you choose to practice some penis exercises, continue having lots of sex, and don’t set your expectations too high, you will certainly see improvements.

Best male enhancement pills

One of the best male enhancement pills that we’ve seen on the market is MaleExtra. It is formulated to help enhance a man’s stamina, libido, and ability to get an erection. It also makes use of most of the male enhancement herbal supplements that we discussed earlier in the article.

MaleExtra has been on the market for a number of years, and customers are consistently quite happy with the results that they get. I would say that MaleExtra is one of the top male enhancement pills you can buy – and for good reason.

MaleExtra uses a carefully formulated mixture of ingredients that all work together to promote male sexual health by increasing blood flow, promoting arousal, increasing energy levels, and enhancing libido.

Some of the ingredients used are:

  • Pomegranate extract. As described earlier, pomegranate is powerful food for helping to enhance sexual health. Studies have been done that indicate people who consume pomegranate juice on a regular basis experience almost a 20% increase in blood flow.
  • Zinc citrate. Zinc is one of the most important minerals for male sexual health. Unfortunately, many people are also deficient in zinc. Zinc helps to promote testosterone levels and encourage erectile health in men.
  • Cordyceps is another natural medicine used for thousands of years as a powerful aphrodisiac.

These ingredients, combined with other natural amino acids and mineral supplements, make MaleExtra a powerful option for anyone hoping to enhance sexual health.

Conclusion

In the end, one can only be certain whether or not a male enhancement pill works by looking at the ingredients and trying it out themselves. Some pills use reliable herbal ingredients that have been proven to help enhance male sexual health.

What Are the Best Sex Pills for Men?

As you are probably well aware, there are a ton of different sex pills on the market.

Sex pills come in a variety of different forms. Some are prescription-only, such as the ever-popular Viagra and its cousin, Cialis. Others are illegitimate, promising massive effects and delivering none. Yet others are herbal supplements with thousands of years of history being used for enhancing sexual health.

Sex pills are also made for different purposes. Some are made to make it easier to get an erection, whereas others are made to enlarge the size of your penis. Some others are made so that your libido increases.

Whatever it is you’re looking for, one thing is certain: you want to make sure that you get high-quality goods. In this article, we’re going to outline the best types of sex pills that you can buy today.

Table of Contents:

Different sex pills for men

There are lots of different sex pills for men. Different sex pills target different problems, and there are often different brands and types of pills for each. These are some of the most common sex pills for men.

Erectile dysfunction pills

Pills designed to treat erectile dysfunction are among the most common. These include the ‘main’ type of sex pills that are available from doctors, such as Viagra and Cialis.

Erectile dysfunction pills generally have two main functions.

  • They help to make it easier for a man to gain an erection
  • They make it easier for a man to sustain their erection

ED pills generally do this by changing the way that the body’s blood flow works. By encouraging greater blood flow to the genital region, ED pills make it easier for a man to get and maintain an erection.

While ED pills are great for people who have a hard time getting an erection in the first place, they don’t do much for men who are hoping to improve the size of their penis. In some cases, they can be useful for people with premature ejaculation – more about this in a moment.

Premature Ejaculation pills

Premature ejaculation pills are those which are designed to help men who struggle to delay their ejaculation. Men with PE tend to ejaculate before their partner is able to achieve satisfaction, which can lead to a great deal of embarrassment and can make relationships difficult.

As it stands, there are not actually a lot of approved medications that are useful for helping men work through PE. In most cases, pills marketed for treating PE use the same ingredients as those that are marketed for other sexual problems.

In fact, even things like Viagra can be occasionally helpful for men struggling with PE. This is because they may help to inhibit the refractory period. The refractory period is the period after a man ejaculates in which he has a hard time getting another erection.

If a man is able to reduce his refractory period, then it doesn’t really matter how quickly he ejaculates because he will only have to wait a short time before he is able to get another erection and resume sexual activity.

Male enhancement pills

Male enhancement pills are a broad term and can actually describe any form of pill designed to help improve a man’s sexual performance. This means that both PE pills and ED pills can be considered male enhancement pills.

However, in many cases, male enhancement pills are specifically designed to improve a man’s genital size, sexual stamina and performance while making use of natural ingredients. Male enhancement pills that use natural ingredients are much less dangerous and pose less of a risk of causing side effects.

In many cases, the herbal ingredients used in male enhancement pills have been used for thousands of years by people across the globe because of their ability to enhance sexual performance. Nowadays, many of these herbs have stood up to scientific scrutiny and are proven to be useful for improving sexual performance.

Best sex pills for men

There are lots of different sex pills on the market, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. These are some of the most common pills, along with some pros and cons of each.

Viagra
It would be pointless to have a list of the best sex pills for men without including Viagra. While not everyone prefers Viagra, it has remained the most popular sex pill for men because it works.

Viagra works by directing blood flow to the penis, and can allow a man to stay hard for several hours. While this may seem ideal, viagra is also known to cause a number of side effects. Viagra can lead to nausea, dizziness, headaches, back pain, and a serious condition known as a priapism – a sustained, long-lasting erection that becomes quite painful and won’t go away.

MaleExtra
MaleExtra is one of the leading natural brands of male sex pills. MaleExtra uses a formula of natural herbal ingredients that have all been used for enhancing sexual performance and stamina for thousands of years.

MaleExtra is not known for causing side effects, and while its effects may not be as immediate and profound as Viagra, it’s able to help you without being as risky.

Vialis
Vialis – a neat combination of the names of two other popular ED medications, Viagra and Cialis – is another natural ED pill that has gained a lot of popularity. Vialis is unique in that it uses a number of mushroom extracts, such as diamond truffle extract, to improve its potency.

Sex pills for women

Women are just as likely to experience sexual problems as men, though the symptoms may not be as obvious. Generally, the symptoms include a loss of libido and difficulty getting wet.

While there aren’t as many sex pills developed solely for women, there are a few types of medication that may be able to restore female libido.

It’s also a fact that many of the ingredients used in male herbal supplements are not strictly effective for men. That means that women may also experience benefits by using them. Herbs like ginseng and maca are effective for restoring libido to both men and women.

The most popular ingredients

There are a lot of different ingredients that are commonly used in male enhancement pills. Some of the most popular are:

  • Fenugreek is an ingredient found in as many as 1/3rd of male enhancement products. While many know fenugreek to be an ingredient in curry, research has also shown it has the potential to balance testosterone levels, enhance libido and improve orgasm in men.
  • Ginkgo biloba is a powerful herb that enhances blood flow throughout the body, thus allowing men to achieve erections much easier. Ginkgo biloba may not be good to take if you have a blood pressure condition or are taking meds that affect your blood pressure.
  • Maca root is a very powerful adaptogenic herb that grows in Peru. Its invigorating and libido-boosting effects are so powerful that, in years past, it was reserved solely for royalty and warriors before they went into battle.
  • Ginseng is another popular ingredient that has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It can enhance blood flow, boost energy, and increase libido. It may interact adversely with people taking blood pressure medication.

Where to buy sex pills

Sex pills can be purchased all over the place.

If you are looking to get prescription sex pills, then your best bet is to go and see a doctor. This is the only (legal) way that you’re going to get these pills.

Legal male enhancement pills, on the other hand, are not too hard to find. They can be found in pharmacies, drug stores, and even in big chain stores like Wal-Mart. If you are looking for a specific brand, then don’t hesitate to look online.

Different ways to improve your sex life

If you’re hoping to improve your sex life, you might not actually need to get sex pills in the first place. The best thing to do is to make sure that you’re living a healthy lifestyle. Here are some tips that can improve your lifestyle without the need to take pills.

  • Make sure you eat healthy. Blood flow, libido, and other important aspects of sexual health are all regulated by the nutrients that your body gets through the food that you eat. If you aren’t eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains, and other healthy foods, then your body will lack the nutrients that it needs for you to have a healthy sex life.
  • Get your exercise. Getting an erection means having blood flow into your penis. If you want blood to flow that far down your body, then you need to have a strong cardiovascular system. The best way to do this is to make sure that you get the proper amount of exercise. Try doing cardiovascular exercise to strengthen your heart.

How to Get a Longer Penis: Go Natural First

Every guy has wondered whether he should do something to increase the length of his penis. If you’re serious about a bigger penis, we recommend going natural first by changing your lifestyle including fitness and diet. Start supplementing with a natural male enhancer like MaleExtra and consider going to therapy.

If you exhaust all those options, then it might be worth chatting with your doctor about more invasive procedures.

Conclusion

All in all, there are lots of ways that you can improve your sexual health.

The first and most important thing to do is to make sure that you’re living a healthy lifestyle. If you’re living and eating healthy and you still can’t get an erection, it’s a good idea to try using an herbal supplement that makes use of a number of complementary ingredients like MaleExtra.

These natural herbal supplements are a great way to restore health to your sex life without causing the risk of side effects.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

It’s easy enough to decide whether or not you have erectile dysfunction. If you have a hard time getting or keeping an erection for long enough to satisfy yourself or your partner, then there’s reason to suspect that you might have ED.

What’s a little bit less easy to determine is the cause of your erectile dysfunction. ED can be caused by physical and psychological factors: diseases, anxieties, and the like. It can also be a sign of other underlying conditions.

In this article, we’ll briefly touch on what erectile dysfunction is before discussing some of the most common causes of ED. In the end, we’ll discuss some of the potential treatments for this condition.

 

Different Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

How do you get erectile dysfunction? There are lots of different answers to this question, ranging from medical conditions and the medications used to treat them, to psychological issues and lifestyle choices. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most common issues that can lead to ED.

Erectile Dysfunction Caused by Medical Conditions

If you are wondering what causes erectile dysfunction, you might be surprised to learn that some of the causes seemingly have nothing to do with sexual health. In fact, in some cases, erectile dysfunction can be an indicator of another health problem. These are some of the most common health problems associated with ED.

Cardiovascular Diseases

As you probably know, an erection is caused by blood flowing into the penis. Here, it fills up the soft tissues of the penis, leading a man to get an erection.

The cardiovascular system – composed of your heart, veins, arteries, etc – is responsible for this blood flow. If your cardiovascular system is not in good shape, then you will have trouble successfully getting blood to flow to your penis.

  • Atherosclerosis, a problem caused by the buildup of cholesterol and eventual hardening of the arteries, can lead to high blood pressure and make it hard to get blood to flow through the body.
  • Hypertension, or high blood pressure, can be caused by a number of things and can make it very difficult for a man to get an erection.

Hormonal Problems

Hormonal problems can also lead to difficulty getting or maintaining an erection.

Low testosterone and ed

Thyroid conditions, testosterone deficiency or excessive amounts of estrogen can make it hard for men to get erections.

Diabetes

Diabetes is another condition that can lead to the development of ED. Diabetes can cause high blood pressure, which can contribute to ED on its own. Diabetes and high blood pressure can also both contribute to atherosclerosis which can aggravate or cause erectile dysfunction.

Obesity

Obesity is another health problem that is often linked to erectile dysfunction. If you are struggling with obesity, you may be prone to developing high blood pressure. You may also be more likely to develop diabetes. As mentioned above, both of these issues can lead to ED.

Neurological Diseases

Neurological and degenerative diseases, such as Parksinson’s and multiple sclerosis, can both contribute to erectile dysfunction. However, if you are struggling with a serious neurological disease, there are most likely other significant symptoms.

Prescription Drugs That May Cause ED

Many prescription drugs are also capable of causing ED. In fact, many of the drugs which are used to treat the conditions above can also contribute to ED. Here are some common drugs which may cause problems with male sexual health.

  • Drugs that affect blood pressure or the heart
  • Anything that affects the central nervous system, be they stimulants (like amphetamines) or depressants (like benzodiazepines)
  • Anxiety medications, like benzodiazepines, often suppress the nervous system and engage the parasympathetic nervous system which can make it difficult to maintain an erection
  • Common antidepressants such as MAOIs, SSRIs, and tricyclics
  • Opioids like morphine
  • Drugs that affect the prostate
  • Anticholinergic drugs
  • Any drugs that affect the hormonal system

Recreational Drugs That Can Cause ED

Recreational drugs are also notorious for causing erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, if the cause of your ED is a recreational drug, the problem will generally only last as long as the drug is taking effect.

Alcohol

You have probably heard the term ‘whiskey dick,’ which accurately describes a situation in which a man is unable to get an erection after consuming alcohol. Some men only experience ED after consuming large amounts of alcohol, whereas others may experience it after only a few drinks.

In some cases, alcohol-related ED may persist into the morning after. It rarely lasts for more than 24 hours after consuming the last drink.

Amphetamines

Amphetamines and stimulants such as cocaine are a class of drugs that stimulate the central nervous system, providing a significant boost of energy. In doing this, they also significantly raise blood pressure, which can make it difficult for a man using these drugs to maintain or get an erection.

Opioids

Opioids are central nervous system depressants, which heavily activate the body’s parasympathetic nervous system. When this system is engaged, a person becomes incredibly relaxed – often far too relaxed to be able to get anything close to an erection.

Should You Avoid Cycling?

Recent research is suggesting that one of the world’s healthiest activities – cycling – may actually pose a threat to men’s sexual health.

However, not all research is in agreement. The only consensus agreed upon widely is that long hours of cycling can create problems for a man’s prostate, and may increase the risk of prostate cancer. This is likely the case, however, with any activities that place continuous pressure on the prostate.

Cycling, specifically, puts a great deal of pressure on the pudendal arteries, which supply blood to your penis. If these arteries are constantly pressurized, they may lose some of their ability to provide adequate blood for an erection.

Psychological Erectile Dysfunction Causes

Physical health isn’t the only issue that can contribute to ED.

Graph with ed causes

There are a number of mental causes that can lead to ED as well.

Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common causes for ED. In many cases, if you struggle with ED and are in good physical health, anxiety may be the cause.

The body responds intuitively to anxiety related to sexual performance. A man who is worried about satisfying his partner, performing well, or the size of his penis may simply ‘freeze up’ and be unable to get an erection. This is a physical response to a psychological issue that would prevent the main from failing to perform well (although, in doing this, it prevents him from performing at all.)

Depression

Depression has a number of symptoms and side effects, both physical and psychological. One of the most common symptoms of depression is being unable to get or maintain an erection. Men with depression may also lose their libido, making it tough for them to perform for their partners.

Issues with self-image can also be related to impression and can affect your ability to get an erection.

Stress

Stress has a number of physical symptoms, one of which can be difficulty getting an erection. Stress can also lead to high blood pressure, which can physically prevent a man from being able to get hard.

Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction In 20s

Many of the health problems listed above aren’t as common for men in their 20s. However, some issues are more pressing for younger men than others.

  • Drug abuse and recreational drinking. Younger people are often more prone to using recreational drugs and binge drinking, both of which can have an adverse affect on their ability to get an erection.
  • Stress. The stress of juggling school, work, and relationships can often compound and adversely affect a young man. This can make it hard for them to focus on sex and can lead to ED.
  • Depression and anxiety are very common problems among younger men, both of which can lead to ED.
  • Hormonal problems can affect both young, middle-aged, and older men, making it difficult for them to get an erection.

Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction In 40s

As we get older, physical health problems become more of a concern. As such, some of these problems are more likely to affect men in their 40s.

  • High blood pressure can affect men in their 40s, especially men who did not deal with stressful situations or anxiety earlier in their lives.
  • Obesity and diabetes are becoming more common among men in their 40s, particularly if they did not follow a healthy diet earlier on.
  • Men in their 40s are more likely to be using some manner of prescription drugs, which can lead to ED.

Available Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

While there are a large number of potential causes for ED, there are also a variety of treatments.

Here are some of the most common.

  • Medication. Medications like Viagra and Cialis can certainly help a man get rid of ED. However, it’s important to remember that these drugs don’t actually treat the root cause of the issue. It’s more important to actually fix the problem contributing to ED than it is to use medication. In addition, medications can cause side effects like headaches, dizziness, and back pain.
  • Herbal supplements. Herbal supplements are a great alternative to medications, and can provide many similar benefits without the same sort of side effects.
  • Surgery is another option for men struggling with serious erectile dysfunction, however this should only be attempted in the most serious situations.

If you think you are struggling with ED, don’t hesitate to get a diagnosis from a professional.

Conclusion

There are many causes of erectile dysfunction. Some are physical, some are psychological, and all are important and should be addressed properly.

While there are also many treatments for ED, the most important thing is that you figure out what’s actually causing your ED and work to correct that issue. Once you do this, you will return to optimal sexual health.

The Best Treatments and Drugs for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which a man has a difficult time achieving or maintaining an erection. They may be able to get an erection briefly, for a period of minutes or seconds, or not at all.

As you can imagine, erectile dysfunction can be an embarrassment for any man. Unfortunately, it’s a very common problem. In fact, it’s one of the most common issues that men around the world face.

Fortunately, there are just about as many treatments for erectile dysfunction as there are causes. Ranging from the world-famous Viagra to herbal supplements and penile exercises, there’s definitely a way that you can get your erections to be strong and long-lasting.

In this article, we’ll explain a bit about what erectile dysfunction is and then outline some of the most common treatments for the problem.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction, also known as impotence, is a condition in which a man is unable to achieve an erection that enables him to perform sexual activity to his satisfaction. This may mean that he is unable to get an erection hard enough to penetrate his partner, or that he may not be able to maintain the erection for long enough to satisfy his partner or himself.

It’s normal for most men to have a hard time getting an erection from time-to-time. However, if this becomes a chronic problem that interferes with the man’s quality of life or his relationship with his partner, it can be a cause for concern.

Another reason that erectile dysfunction might be a concern is because it can indicate another, more serious health problem. Cardiovascular problems, for example, can make it hard for a man to get an erection.

How to check if you have erectile dysfunction

The first and most obvious way to check if you have erectile dysfunction is to try and get an erection. This can be done on your own, with the use of imagination or pornography, or with a partner.

If you repeatedly find yourself unable to get hard, then you probably have erectile dysfunction.

However, we don’t blame you for wanting to get a better diagnosis. You can go see your doctor for this. In most cases, your doctor will only need to give you a physical exam and ask you a few questions to determine whether or not you have erectile dysfunction.

Based on your answers and your medical history, however, your doctor might decide that an underlying health condition is responsible for your erectile dysfunction. In this case, they might follow up with further tests.

  • Blood tests and urine tests can both be done to help determine if you struggle with a health problem like diabetes, which can impede blood flow and make it hard to get an erection.
  • Ultrasound tests use special devices to get a visual understanding of what the blood vessels in your penis look like. This information can be used to make a diagnosis.
  • Psychological tests can determine if an emotional or mental health problem like depression or anxiety is causing your erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction treatments

There are a lot of different erectile dysfunction treatments available. You can get erectile dysfunction drugs over the counter in many places, and there are plenty of erectile dysfunction medications available at the hands of your doctor. There are also natural treatments for ED, as well as herbal remedies and exercises that have been proven useful for helping men struggling with ED.

Erectile dysfunction drugs – oral medications

These are the most common ED drugs on the market. These ones generally require a doctor’s prescription, but it’s pretty easy to get a diagnosis and prescription for ED. It’s important to remember, though, that erectile dysfunction drugs often cause unpleasant side effects.

It’s also important to note that all erectile dysfunction medications can interact negatively with other medications that you might be taking, such as high blood pressure medication. Be sure to talk to your doctor before taking any of these drugs.

Sildenafil (Viagra)
Sildenafil is the active ingredient found in the drug Viagra. This is one of the most common drugs used for the treatment of ED, and can be found in pharmacies around the world. Sildefanil encourages more blood to flow into the tissues and veins of your penis, making it much easier to get and keep an erection.

Sildefanil can cause side effects like headaches, dizziness, high blood pressure, and heartburn. Sildefanil and other erectile dysfunction medications can also cause the risk of priapism, a long-lasting and extremely painful erection that won’t go away.

Tadalafil (Adcirca, Cialis)
Tadalafil is the active ingredient in Cialis, which is the second-most-popular ED drug on the market today. The main difference is that Tadalafil lasts much longer than Sildenafil, and can remain active in the body for up to 35 hours whereas Sildenafil is generally inactive after 5 hours.

Tadalafil can cause similar side effects as Sildenafil, and the risk of priapism is the same – except the priapism might last a lot longer.

Avanafil (Stendra)
Avanafil, the main ingredient in Stendra, is one of the newest erectile dysfunction drugs on the market. It works in a similar way as all the other -nafil drugs, however there are a few differences.

  • It selectively targets penis tissues, making it less likely to cause side effects like back pain
  • It starts to work very quickly, within 15 minutes
  • It lasts about 6 hours

Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)
Vardenafil is the active ingredient in Levitra. It lasts a bit longer than Sildenafil, remaining active for somewhere between 5 and 8 hours. It’s much stronger than Viagra, and as such you will only need to be prescribed much smaller doses to reap the same effects.

As with any of these compounds, Vardenafil can cause side effects, especially at higher doses.

Injections

If you don’t think oral medications are for you (and you’re not afraid of needles), you can also get an injection to help with your ED.

Testosterone replacement therapy
In some cases, erectile dysfunction can be caused by problems with low testosterone. In these cases, your doctor may recommend testosterone replacement therapy to help correct the issue.

Alprostadil self-injection
If you are adventurous, it’s possible to inject your penis with a substance known as Alprostadil. This substance is designed to cause blood to flow directly to the tissues in your penis, giving you an erection that will last no more than an hour.

This can be uncomfortable, can cause pain or bleeding, and can eventually lead to the development of scar tissue if used over time.

Penile implants

If you don’t think that medications or injections are working, it’s possible to actually get a penile implant that will allow you to get an erection on-command (in addition to being classified as a cyborg).

Penile implants generally come in the form of two inflatable rods. One of these rods is placed on either side of your penis. The rods are malleable, allowing your penis to remain somewhat flexible.

Penile implants are generally not recommended except as a last resort.

Penis pumps

Penis pumps can be used to help a man gain an erection. The air-tight tube is placed around the penis, and a suction pump pulls the air out of the tube. This draws blood into the penis and should allow the man to get an erection. After this, they can place a cock ring around the base of their penis to keep the blood in.

Exercise

Exercise is another good way to help treat erectile dysfunction. If you live a sedentary lifestyle without much exercise and spend most of your day sitting, it’s quite likely that you’re struggling with ED because your cardiovascular system doesn’t get much of a workout.

If your heart isn’t strong, then it simply won’t be able to work hard enough to consistently pump blood down to your penis. A regular exercise routine can strengthen your heart and make it easier to gain an erection.

How to Get a Longer Penis: Go Natural First

Every guy has wondered whether he should do something to increase the length of his penis. If you’re serious about a bigger penis, we recommend going natural first by changing your lifestyle including fitness and diet. Start supplementing with a natural male enhancer like MaleExtra and consider going to therapy.

If you exhaust all those options, then it might be worth chatting with your doctor about more invasive procedures.

Herbal supplements

There are lots of herbal supplements that can be useful for helping someone work through ED. Some of these include:

Ginseng. Ginseng is a powerful adaptogenic herb that has been used for thousands of years to help people improve their sexual health, energy levels, and fertility. It’s an important herb that can help men fight off erectile dysfunction.

Pomegranate. Pomegranate is more than just a strange-looking fruit. Pomegranate extract has been proven to be great for helping to improve male libido and can be useful for helping to fight erectile dysfunction.

L-arginine may not be a herbal supplement on its own, but it’s a compound found in natural herbal substances such as green tea. L-arginine is an amino acid that helps to reduce high blood pressure and increase blood flow to the genitals, making it an ideal supplement for men hoping to improve their sexual health.

One of the best things that you can do is try a herbal supplement that includes a number of different ingredients that all work together.

Cure Your ED with Lifestyle Changes

Before you run to the doctor and get medicated, it’s important that you at least try to make some lifestyle changes. In many cases, having a healthy lifestyle will ensure that you don’t get ED.

This can include:

  • Eating healthy. Nutritional deficiencies can lead to health problems and can contribute to sexual health issues. Vitamin D, for example, has been linked to ED.
  • Exercising. As mentioned, exercise is important for cardiovascular health and can reduce ED.
  • Avoiding pornography. Watching porn regularly can make it difficult to get an erection when you’re actually with a partner in person.

Medical Help for ED

If you find that natural remedies are not working, don’t hesitate to seek a doctor to help you with your erectile dysfunction. They can help you get a prescription, or recommend penile implants in serious cases.

Many men have found success using herbal supplements and natural remedies, such as exercise or a professionally-formulated product like MaleExtra, to treat their ED.

Hopefully, this article has helped you make a decision regarding how you can work on your ED.

The Most Common Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that prevents a man from getting an erection or staying hard. ED can lead to a number of problems – it can affect relationships, hurt a man’s self-esteem, and lead to problems conceiving a child.

Erectile dysfunction is a very common condition among men of all ages. However, just because you have a hard time getting an erection once in a while doesn’t necessarily mean that you have erectile dysfunction.

Many men struggle to get hard two or three times and then rush to the doctor to get a prescription or a diagnosis for ED. However, that’s not always necessary.

In this article, we’re going to talk about the other symptoms of ED, provide some tips on how you can help with the diagnosis of ED with your partner, and give you some tips and tricks on how to treat erectile dysfunction.

Not all erection issues are signs of erectile dysfunction

If a man has a hard time getting an erection, it’s quick for them to jump to the assumption that they have ED. However, there are lots of things that can affect a man’s ability to get an erection, ranging from alcohol to unhealthy food.

Because of the many different issues that can lead to ED, you can’t really be certain that you have it unless it’s a recurring experience. There are also a number of other symptoms associated with ED that aren’t an inability to gain an erection.

Symptoms of erectile dysfunction

So, what are the symptoms of erectile dysfunction? They mostly relate to the penis itself, and all tend to prevent a man from finding sexual satisfaction.

If you are experiencing a few of these symptoms, and have been experiencing them with some regularity for an extended period, it may be time to go to the doctor and seek a diagnosis for ED.

Difficulty getting an erection

The first and most common symptom associated with this embarrassing condition is an inability to get an erection. Men with ED are often unable to get an erection at all, or if they are, they are unable to get one that’s hard enough to actually penetrate their partner.

Difficulty keeping an erection

Some men may struggle from a form of ED in which they have trouble sustaining an erection. They may not have a hard time getting an erection, but once they do, they have a very hard time keeping it up.

Softer erections

Some men with ED may be able to get somewhat hard. They may even be able to maintain this soft erection for an extended period. However, generally, these soft erections are not hard enough to penetrate the partner or to provide satisfaction.

Less girthy erections

Another thing that men with ED may notice is less girth in their erections. This is because less blood is able to flow into the penis. This means that the soft tissues composing your penis cannot grow larger, and as such, you will seem less girthy.

Reduced sensitivity

Another issue that men with ED may experience is reduced sensitivity. This lack of sensitivity often makes it hard for them to ejaculate, if they are able to get hard at all. If they are unable to get hard, the reduced sensation will make it much harder for them to actually get an erection even if they’re being stimulated.

Reduced sexual desire

Another symptom of ED can be reduced sexual desire, although more often than not this is the result of another problem. Reduced sexual desire tends to contribute to ED, not the other way around. One of the reasons that ED is such a difficult problem for men is because it prevents them from fulfilling their sexual desires.

How to discover erectile dysfunction symptoms with your partner

It can be a good idea to ask your partner, if you have one, to help you identify symptoms of erectile dysfunction. One of the reasons for this is because your partner is more aware – or at least aware of different aspects – of your penis. This means that they’ll be able to provide you with some information you might not be aware of yourself.

First off, your partner can simply tell you whether or not they are satisfied after you lose your erection. If they aren’t, ask them why.

If your erection has become softer, for example, you might not be aware of this. However, your partner might be. They will also be able to tell you if you’ve lost some girth or if there has been a change in the angle of your penis.

Getting your partner to tell you everything that they’re experiencing is a good way for you to determine whether or not you have ED.

Medical advice tips

If you are struggling with ED and have confirmed it, it can be useful to go see a doctor to get a formal diagnosis.

It’s also a good idea to see a doctor if you are struggling with other symptoms along with ED. Erectile dysfunction can actually be a sign of another health complication. If this is the case, you would require additional medical care.

Health complications related to erectile dysfunction

There are a number of health conditions, complications, and behaviours that can put someone at risk for developing ED. These are some of the most common risk factors:

  • Diabetes, which can lead to high blood pressure and make it harder to get an erection
  • Atherosclerosis, a hardening of the arteries that prevents blood flow
  • Stress and anxiety can lead to high blood pressure, making it hard to get an erection. Some forms of ED are also purely psychological in nature and can be treated by seeing a therapist
  • Drinking and smoking can both lead to changes in blood pressure and hormones, making it hard to achieve an erection
  • Prescription medications can also interfere with blood pressure, libido, and sexual health
  • Injuries to the brain and spine
  • Hormonal conditions, such as hypogonadism – a condition in which someone can’t produce enough testosterone
  • Radiation therapy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Strokes

Any of these conditions can lead to ED. If you are having a hard time maintaining an erection and are also noticing other, seemingly unrelated symptoms, it could be a good idea to go see a doctor.

What to do to prevent erectile dysfunction

The best way to treat ED is to avoid getting it in the first place. That means taking preventative measures to ensure that you don’t get ED.

However, the following preventatives can also work as natural, lifestyle-related treatments for ED. Before going to the doctor and seeking medication, make sure that you’re doing all of the following things. If you’re not, then this could be the cause of your ED.

  • Avoid smoking and drinking. Smoking – especially over the long term – can lead to chronic high blood pressure and make it very difficult for a man to get an erection.Repeated drinking can do this, as well.Occasional drinking (once or twice a week) may not lead to permanent ED, however, most male drinkers are aware of the effects of “whiskey dick,” a temporary, alcohol-induced form of ED. Whiskey dick does not usually last much longer than the alcohol itself.
  • Eat healthy. Our body relies on a large number of vitamins, minerals, fats, and other nutrients to keep in good shape. Most of these nutrients come from the food that we eat. Make sure to eat a diet rich in vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruits. Make sure to stay hydrated, as well – being hydrated ensures that these nutrients are easier absorbed.
  • Watch your weight. Being overweight can lead to conditions like diabetes, and can cause high blood pressure. Both of these things can make someone more prone to ED.
  • Stay active. Exercise is what primes your cardiovascular system: your heart, your veins, and your arteries. This system is responsible for pumping blood throughout your body – including your penis.If you never exercise and don’t have a strong cardiovascular system, then your heart will simply not be able to reliably pump blood down to your penis. As you can imagine, this would make it pretty difficult to get an erection.

Ways to treat erectile dysfunction

Fortunately, there are lots of ways that you can treat the problem. If you are just noticing the warning signs of erectile dysfunction, try some of the simpler, all-natural methods first.

Improve Your Lifestyle

As mentioned above, having a healthy lifestyle is important for making sure that you don’t get ED. Make sure that you eat healthy, stay hydrated, get enough sleep, and exercise on a regular basis. If you are doing all these things and are still struggling to get an erection, it could be time to try another method.

Use Herbal Supplements

There are plenty of herbal supplements that have been used for helping to treat erectile dysfunction. Some of the most common are:

  • Ginseng, an herb used since ancient times to help improve sexual health and vitality of both males and females
  • Horny goat weed, an aptly-named herb that helps boost libido and blood flow to the penis
  • Maca root, a superfood herb that grows in Peru and has incredibly potent libido-boosting effects

If you are looking for a natural way to cure your ED, check MaleExtra supplement that contains multiple effective ingredients that work together.

Get Medication

If herbal supplements and lifestyle changes aren’t working for you, then there is always medication that you can use for your ED.

  • Viagra is one of the most common drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction symptoms. It works by bringing blood into the penis.
  • Cialis is another medication that works in the same way but lasts for a few hours longer.

Remember, medically prescribed medications like Viagra and Cialis can lead to side effects like dizziness, nausea, headaches, back-aches, and priapism: a painful, long-lasting erection that won’t go away for several hours and may require hospitalization.

Conclusion

There are lots of symptoms associated with ED – not simply being unable to get an erection. If you think you are experiencing ED based on the symptoms that you read today, then don’t hesitate to try out some of the all-natural remedies we’ve suggested.

In serious cases, if these remedies don’t work, it can be a good idea to consult a doctor.
