Pornography Could Encourage Erectile Dysfunction

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, September 16, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Pornography is undeniably popular and commonly used by many, with 46% of American adult men admitting to having consumed pornography within a one-week period from the time of the survey. Despite this, it’s a subject that few want to talk about – and when it is discussed, it is mostly so that it may be condemned. In recent years, pornography has been batted about as a major penis health issue, with many opponents insisting that use of pornography leads to erectile dysfunction. However, sci...

Cycling is one of the best ways to get regular exercise, and that’s good for a man’s health. That said, cyclists are at risk when it comes to penis health.

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, August 29, 2019, In : Men's Health 

A man and his penis share a hollowed relationship. This relationship, like any other, has its quite literal ups and downs. Nearly 15 percent of men are victims of severe Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in their 70’s. While that number may not seem that high, it doesn’t consider the high percentage of men who experience a range of ED. According to the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and Public Health, a man’s chance of mild or moderate Erectile Dysfunction goes up by every decad...

Gallstones Associated with Erectile Dysfunction Risk

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Avoiding erectile dysfunction is clearly a priority for most men and maintaining good penis health is one way to help. However, sometimes there are physical issues which can contribute to erectile dysfunction which may seem to be somewhat far removed from the penis. That’s because the body is a complex, interrelated system, and so a problem in one area of the body can have ramifications in another part. That’s the case with gallstones, which have been found to be associated with a higher ...

Pollution Might Influence Erectile Dysfunction

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, July 12, 2019, In : Men's Health 

Maintaining good penis health is a no-brainer as a goal, and many men take great pains to keep their penis in great shape. Exercising, eating right, cutting out smoking, watching alcohol intake, using a penis health crème—all of these are things men do to keep their favorite organ healthier and happier—which in turn can keep it in better shape to function properly. But sometimes outside forces can come into play that can bring about erectile dysfunction issues, even for men who take very...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a sort of plague upon men. It seems like it comes out of nowhere and there is no hope in sight. This is not the case for most men, but it can feel like it.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects many men at different points in their life. While it seems to be discussed ad nauseum, not all men really understand erectile dysfunction. Sure, the common knowledge is that it’s a penis problem and can be easily cured with a little blue pill. However, that’s not the truth of the matter. A lot of times, ED goes deeper into a man’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

Guys may do a lot of talking about sexual conquests and the unrelenting prowess of their libido; however, one sexual thing a lot of men won’t talk about is Erectile Dysfunction, also known as ED.

Erectile Dysfunction? Maybe Try a Little Watermelon

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Some men may experience better erectile function during the summer months, and there has long been an old wives’ tale that tries to explain the matter. Sure, summertime may just be a period of the year when men feel naturally friskier, or perhaps the exposure to more sunlight and fresh air helps to explain this penis health change. But folk medicine has for centuries encouraged men who have difficulties with their erections to partake of abundantly available watermelon during the summer sea...

Demystifying Erectile Dysfunction: How We Study It and How It’s Treated

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Men are fortunate to be living in a world in which our knowledge of sexual health has increased to the point that it has. Gone are the days when, say, treating syphilis required a man to drink dangerous quantities of mercury - with little effect on the disease itself, and certainly to the detriment of the patient! Much of what is now known about proper penis health strategies has come about through centuries of observation and trial and error, but much nowadays is learned through rigorously-...

Erectile Dysfunction and the Porn Connection

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, November 13, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Men love to have sex, and if a partner isn’t readily available, a man might just have sex with himself. But in order to do that, many men turn to a virtual partner, the one they find on their computer screen or between the pages of an adult-themed magazine. In fact, taking matters into their own hands is well-known as part of excellent penis care, and most men suffer no penis problems at all from enjoying a little foray into porn from time to time.

Can Erectile Dysfunction Really Be Due to a Cat Scratch?

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, September 29, 2017, In : Men's Health 

One of the major reasons a man devotes time and attention to proper penis care is to reduce the likelihood of erectile dysfunction. Since sexual pleasure and satisfaction tend to revolve around the ability of the penis to attain and maintain an erect state, it’s understandable that erectile dysfunction avoidance is uppermost in a man’s mind.

Dealing with erectile dysfunction can be one of the most heart-wrenching, frightening issues for a guy. This is especially true if there appears to be no physical cause of the problem. With a physical cause, at least a guy has the knowledge that modern medicine can help fix the issue; but when the source of his penis problems is psychological, it can mean that he doesn’t know where to start to fix the problem.

It’s the one thing concerning the penis that men don’t like to talk about: erectile dysfunction.

Yet it’s a far from uncommon issue, with the National Institutes of Health stating that as many as 30,000,000 men in America suffer from it. And while it’s true that it tends to affect older men more readily, plenty of young males are known to have function...

When a guy’s penis is functioning properly, everything’s right with the world. When erectile dysfunction rears its ugly head, the world is no longer so bright and cheery.

There are two words no man ever wants to hear: erectile dysfunction. One of the primary reasons a guy may devote so much time to maintaining his penis health is precisely because he wants to avoid the development of erectile dysfunction.

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, February 15, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Many men are worried about erectile dysfunction, and go to great pains to ensure top-notch penis care in an effort to avoid the problem. In most cases of erectile dysfunction, there is a physical component; for example, a man might suffer from diabetes, circulation issues or other problems that can be addressed by a physician.

But for some men, there appears to be no physical problem at all - other than the fact that he just can’t get it up when it’s time to get busy. This can be quite...

What Penis Health Says about Longevity

Men who pay very close attention to good penis care will often notice immediately if something is not quite right. Almost every man will make note if his erection is softer than usual, takes longer to obtain or doesn’t rise at all.

Sleep Apnea and Erectile Dysfunction: There May Be a Link

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, December 21, 2016, In : Men's Health 

Few things are as of great a concern to a man as erectile dysfunction, and understandably so. Men take pride in the manner in which their penis operates and when there is a "kink" in the machinery, it can create anxiety.

In this regard, one area which has received more attention in recent years is the possibility of a link between sleep apnea and erectile dy...

Erectile dysfunction is an enormous fear of men everywhere, of any age.

Erectile Dysfunction – How to Increase Blood Flow to the Penis

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, October 31, 2014, In : Men's Health 

One of the primary causes of erectile dysfunction is decreased blood flow to the penis. An erection occurs when a rush of blood engorges chambers in the penis called the corpora cavernosa; without healthy blood flow, the penis simply can’t get hard. The impacts of this condition cannot be overstated: A man’s physical and emotional well-being, as well as his relationship health, may be in jeopardy.

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, August 26, 2013, In : Men's Health 

The pleasures of adult videos are easy to understand.

While masturbation to adult videos is healthy in moderation, engaging in the behavior on a compulsive basi...

Natural Help For Erectile Function - The Importance Of L-Arginine

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, January 11, 2013, In : Men’s Issues 
L-arginine is an amino acid that the body uses to make nitric oxide (NO), which plays a role in the development of an erection.

While the body produces some L-arginine on its own, it can be found in certain nuts or administered in the form of supplements. Using L-arginine can improve penis function, accor...

It all sounds ideal, but men who ride their bikes for more than three hours per week, resea...
