They may not be prone to admitting it, but most men don’t know every little thing there is to know about sex – and therefore even the most experienced Romeo could probably benefit from a few sex tips here and there. Most important of sex tips, of course, is to maintain excellent penis health, but there are many others - and not all of them may seem obvious. For example, most men may not know that exposure to simple light can play a role in one’s sexual success.

Spread a little sunshine

On one hand, the idea of light having a positive effect on a man’s sex life might seem counterintuitive. After all, sex is frequently performed at nighttime rather than in daylight, And if the act is not always performed in total darkness, lighting is often set to a mood-enhancing dimness. After all, the last thing we want a partner who is supposed to be in thrall to our overwhelming sexiness to notice is that little flaw in our teeth or those couple of extra pounds we could stand to lose.

But we’re not really discussing the idea of whether a couple should indulge their libidos during the day instead of at night, or whether they should keep bright lights on at night while getting up to their sexual tricks. Rather, this article is looking at how general exposure to sunlight might impact a man’s sex drive and sex life.


There have been studies in this area. Taking their cue from the fact that many people, experience significant mood changes during the dark, winter months, scientists have looked into how lack of light might impact sex drive. These studies have tended to find that men are more inclined to sexual dysfunction situations when they are deprived of light. Those who experienced more exposure to light (including concentrated artificial light) had fewer sexual issues.

Therefore, many doctors recommend that men should take steps to ensure that they get adequate exposure to light sources, especially during winter months or periods of time when they are indoors during the daylight hours.

With that in mind, these simple hacks may enable a guy to get more light (and recharge his solar sex battery, so to speak) during darker months.

Just walk it off. Unless one is near the poles, there’s SOME sunlight at any time of the year; the trick is in catching it. When possible, a man should try to schedule a half hour walk during the daylight, perhaps as part of his lunch break.

Clean up that yard! Doing yardwork, like raking leaves, cleaning gutters, bagging garbage, or emptying water that has gathered in barrels or garbage can lids, gets a man outside in the sun while at the same time making the neighbors smile at him instead of cursing him. Win-win!

Get back into play. A man may be too old to swing on the swings or slide down the slide, but many adults get their kid on by engaging in football, basketball soccer, or any other number of sports activities. The exposure to the sun is great, and it also helps keep them trim and appealing.

Go electric. Natural light is best, but using a high intensity sun lamp has its benefits. Consult with a doctor, however, to determine the proper amount of exposure.

So upping light exposure is good, but no list of male sex tips is complete without reminding guys to daily apply a top notch penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Be sure the crème contains vitamin B5 (aka pantothenic acid), a vital nutrient that is required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue. The crème should also contain alpha lipoic acid, an antioxidant that fights harmful molecules that can lead to premature aging of penis skin.
