Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, In : Men's Health

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, May 24, 2013, In : Men's Health 

It is not uncommon for a man - or a woman for that matter - to be nervous about a sexual experience, particularly if it is with a new partner. A man may be worried about his skills in the sack, self-conscious about being naked, or just plain afraid his partner won’t be satisfied with his love stick.

Penis Sensitivity Secrets: Experimentation Can Be the Key to Lasting Pleasure

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, May 24, 2013, In : Men's Health 

It might sound corny, but a man's penis is as individual as his fingerprint. The tool he was born with, the care he's given to the equipment, and the ways in which he's used his body in the past can all lead up to a very specific sensory map. As a result, every guy might have specific parts of the penis that are intensely pleasurable, even when other men can touch that same spot on their own bodies and feel nothing at all in response.

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, In : Men's Health 

According to our cultural mythology, the average male is like a raging bull in terms of his sexual desire; men are viewed as having an unending libido. A great majority of men identify their virility with their sex drive, so it is not surprising that few are willing to confess the truth - that they, like their female counterparts, may experience flagging desire that may or may not have to do with age, hormones or relationship issues.

It is something most men don’t want to talk about, nearly all men will deny ever having experienced, and yet will affect virtually everyone at some point in their lifetime.

Prostate cancer is the second most common form of cancer to affect men, after skin cancer; in the United States alone, this aggressive cancer claims the lives of over 30,000 men per year.

Most young boys are subjected to the dreaded birds-and-bees conversation early in life. That same information is also typically provided in school, during embarrassing sex education classes.

Can too much masturbation hurt one’s sex life?

Most men have heard the myth that too much masturbation causes hairy palms, or even blindness - which would certainly be worrisome if that were true. Luckily, that statement holds about as much water as the idea that a woman can’t get pregnant while standing up, which is a sexual myth that is in fact false.

The zipper has a remarkable ability to pull two separate pieces of fabric together and hold them together securely. It's a wonderful invention, but it's unlikely that the person who came up with this innovation really thought the application through clearly.

Many men protest the use of condoms during sex. Women are often told by their partners that sex just doesn’t feel as good when they are using a condom, or that it is unfair to make them wrap it up.

The foreskin is more than just an extra flap of skin at the end of the penis. This bit of tissue, also known as the prepuce, plays an important role in penis health. From birth, it protects the glans penis (or head) from the outside world, helping to prevent injury and preserving sensitivity.

While circumcision, or surgical ablation of the foreskin, is common practice in a number of cultures, most males retain their foreskin. In order to prevent problems from developing and keep the skin c...
