Itchy Penis: Will Shaving Cure Pubic Lice?

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Pubic lice. Crabs. Genital parasites. Whatever one calls them, they all mean one thing: an embarrassingly itchy penis that necessitates refraining from sexual congress. As penis health issues go, pubic lice are more of a n annoyance than a crisis. Aside from the itchy penis, they may bring about a fever and a feeling of fatigue; and as with any itch situation, scratching too much and too intensely can result in an infection. But otherwise, pubic lice are just a pest.

Everyman has no doubt gotten a little overzealous at some point in his life and masturbated until he wound up with a red penis and a lot of discomfort.

It happens to everyone and can make for a very unpleasant day. Dryness and itching on penis skin are always unwanted.

A study in 2014 out of Italy found interesting data that low levels of vitamin D may increase the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED). Lead researcher, Alessandra Barassi, and her team found that of the 143 men they studied with ED, nearly half of them were deficient in vitamin D.

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, November 22, 2018, In : Men's Health 

This is hardly the kind of news that would take the internet by storm, but men really, really like oral sex. When a partner offers to orally satisfy them, they tend to be on cloud nine – possibly even higher. And if they practice proper penis care, their partner is more likely to be open to making such an offer. But when a partner isn’t around, many a man has wondered if they could orally please their own erect penis. And many a man has also made at least a half-hearted try, especially if...

Locations for Better Sex

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, November 22, 2018, In : Men's Health 

The adage that the three most important things in real estate are location, location, and location doesn’t exactly apply to better sex. But there’s no denying that changing locations can indeed spruce things up where the bed game is concerned. (Of course, this assumes that penis health is adequate in the first place.) Mind you, there is absolutely nothing wrong if a couple finds that they are perfectly sexually satisfied in the bedroom (or wherever they habitually engage in sex). But for...

Too many guys have had this happen: They are sexily undressing in front of a new bedmate, and as they get to the big reveal and strip off their underwear, the room is filled with an obscenely strong penis odor. Rank penis odor is a common penis health issue, and one which can ruin a promising evening. The causes of penis odor are numerous; one of the lesser known culprits involves the body producing too much of a substance called methionine.

Male Organ Function and Medications That Increase Prolactin

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Male organ health and male organ function are often linked, with a healthy manhood usually more likely to have fewer issues with male organ function. However, there can be factors which impede male organ function which come about even when a man is taking every step possible to ensure the health of his favorite organ.

Parents face this question when having a male child and adult men face it later in life: Is circumcision necessary?

An uncontrollable urge to scratch an itchy penis is a familiar sensation for every man. When a guy is alone, of course, there’s no problem; but when in a social, public situation, the last thing a guy wants is to be caught with his hand rubbing his penis. If the itchy penis is more than a passing problem, it may be a penis health issue that needs attention. In such cases, identifying the cause of the itchiness is necessary. Neurodermatitis may be that cause in certain cases.

Dryness Around the Penis: What it Means and How to Fix It

You’re not alone if you’re suffering from dryness around the penis. It’s the worst place that dry skin can happen, and is very common for all men, in all walks of life.

To all the men out there who are overly concerned about the fact that they don’t pack a monster inside their pants: It’s time to chill. As I discuss in an original article posted on Ezinearticles.com, despite the incredible play that penis size gets in modern culture, and despite the fact that so many guys in porn videos sport massive endowments, the fact is that penis size does not have a real correlation to sexual performance and satisfaction. Indeed, assuming he takes care of his peni...

(Guys do surreptitiously check each other out in, say, the locker room with a quick glance.) As we note in our article originally published on Ezinearticles.com, that’s one reason practicing appropriate penis health is important. When the skin is clean and clear, it assures onlookers that it is in good shape and disease-free (although, of course, in some cases appearances...

Most men would like to possess a so-called “trouser snake” that is the equivalent of an anaconda – in spite of the fact that most guys know that size is less important than penis health and penis skill. More than a few men, unhappy with the length of their penis, decide to take steps to change its size, and often many look into penis stretching as an option.

A rash on any part of the body is inconvenient, but a penis rash can be especially so.

Penile skin is delicate and is often compared to the skin that takes up residence around the eyes so it’s important to care for it in a similar fashion.
