Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, February 26, 2013, In : Men's Health 

While most men would like to think of themselves as a smoldering fire just waiting for the right invitation to burst into flame, the truth - as even many younger men are aware - is that the fire is prone to fizzle from time to time, leaving them feeling embarrassed and unsatisfied.

Erectile dysfunction is estimated to plague as many as 15 to 30 million men in the United States. While it’s true that men over 65 are more likely to have erectile dysfunction, many young bucks have had the very same problems in the bedroom. Ther...

It is common wisdom that all men, including those with darker skin, need sunscreen to protect themselves from sunburn during the summer months; but even guys who are conscientious about applying sun protection products on the rest of their body tend to neglect one important issue - the penis.

There is something to be said for an earthy, manly smell, and many women will admit that they find a subtle male odor to be exciting. But when it comes to penis odor, there can certainly be too much of a good thing.

Penis Health Facts – A Nutrient Boost for Sexual Function

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, February 20, 2013, In : Men's Health 

The penis is a complex organ - perhaps more so than most people give it credit for. And just like the other vital organs in the body, the penis needs to be cared for on a daily basis. The penis is powered by a system of arteries that allows blood to engorge the manhood, leading to an erection, which is, of course, necessary for sex. Any breakdown in this system can lead to a sluggish penis - and, perhaps, an equally sluggish love life.

As a general rule, what’s good for the heart is good...

Regardless of the attention that men give to the condition of their skin in general, the penis is almost always a cause for concern; the average man could draw a map of his package with his eyes closed. As a result, it is not surprising that the appearance of anything unusual - from dryness to bumps to red spots or acne - can turn into a source for anxiety.

While a discolored penis is generally nothing to worry about, there are a variety of issues that can change the appearance of the peni...

Over the years, there have been plenty of myths and old wives’ tales about penis performance and size; nearly everyone has heard the story that masturbation causes blindness or hairy palms.

Men are notorious for putting off going to the doctor, but when it comes to penis pain, most men would agree that medical attention is a must.

All relationships take work, and sexual relationships are no different.

Penis Pain – Why Ignoring It Could Lead to Lasting Consequences

Most men go to great lengths to protect their nether regions -- and for good reason; a shot to the family jewels is not only extremely painful, it can cause long-term damage to the area. Though the penis is made of tissue and cannot technically be broken in the same way as a bone, trauma to the penile area can result in scarring, which in turn may result in bending or curvature of the penis.

This condition is characterized by a plaque build-up, or hard lump, that develops in the tissue of ...

Very little can cause more alarm in a man than discovering a lump or bump on his penis or scrotum. The first thought on his mind may be that he is suffering from a sexually transmitted disease (STD).
