Anxiety and depression are also commonly linked to psoriasis and are also causes of erectile ...

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...

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, In : Men's Health 

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. There are many purported treatments out there, promising a rocket-ready dong, from penis pumps to little blue pills to special lotions and potions.

There’s a lot of old wives’ tales centered around masturbation. According to myths, it can make a man go blind, yield the hairiest of hands, and even make a penis fall off.

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.

Posted by John Dugan on Monday, January 7, 2019, In : Men's 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. That’s a shame because experts estimate that affects nearly 30 million men, especially those over 65.

Erectile dysfunction: two of the most terrifying words a man can ever hear in connection with his penis health. Yet it’s something which is not uncommon. According to one source, about 10% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 have severe or complete erectile dysfunction, and 25% more have moderate or intermittent cases of it. That’s a full one-third of men in that age range affected to some degree by erectile difficulties. That’s one reason why it’s important to know the possible cau...

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...

"Erectile dysfunction" is one phrase no man wants to hear, but it’s something which unfortunately does happen to a lot of men. As a matter of fact, the National Institute for Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases estimates about 30,000,000 men in America are affected by erectile dysfunction, making it a significant sexual health issue.

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 Function and DHEA Supplementation: Game Changer or Dead End?

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, August 10, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Not surprisingly, one of the main issues when it comes to penis health is erectile function (or dysfunction, as the case may be). This is an area in which there is a great degree of interest, and many researchers are looking at various possible factors which might contribute to the development of erectile dysfunction in men.

Erectile Function and Psoriasis: Is There a Connection?

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, July 27, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Penis health maintenance is multi-faceted, meaning that there are many areas a man wants to pay attention to. For example, there’s the state of the penis skin, blood circulation within the penis and surrounding areas, semen production, erectile function, urinary tract conditions, penis odor, and much more. And sometimes one penis health issue can have an effect on another. For example, some studies suggest that a common skin condition, namely psoriasis, could potentially have an effect on ...

Erectile Function and Penile Blood Flow: Understanding the Anatomy of an Erection

Posted by John Dugan on Friday, July 13, 2018, In : Men's Health 

The human body is a wonder, a complicated organism that is a beautiful machine. Individual body parts are also wonders, including the penis - and not just because of the sheer pleasure the penis provides to its owner (and to partners of the owner). Of course, like all parts of the body, it requires proper care and attention, which is why penis health is so important. And part of understanding penis health lies in knowing the various components of the penis and how they are affected by other ...

Why should penis health be connected with oral health? It may seem strange, but there can be a connection. In recent years, several doctors and scientists have written about a link between periodontitis, a kind of gum disease, and erectile dysfunction. A recently published article provides yet more ammunition for existence of this link.

When a man is spending a lot of time on his bicycle, he’s likely doing what he can to promote his best possible health. But what happens when all that bike riding leads to serious penis health problems? Unfortunately, many cyclists find that over time, they start to experience penis health issues, such as nerve problems and erectile dysfunction. When a guy is spending more than three hours a week in the cycle seat, he’s much more prone to penis injury. Here’s what a guy needs to know t...

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.

But what about those men who suddenly r...

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. Recently, the internet has been abuzz with a rumor that cat scratches can cause a guy to become impotent. Is this just a rumor, or is there truth in...

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. In addition to great penis care, a man might also need to look into better menta...

Can a Bent Penis Cause Erectile Issues?

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, May 6, 2017, In : Men's Health 

Not every penis stands up straight and tall when aroused. Some degree of curvature is absolutely normal in many men, and is no indication of a penis health issue or other concern. But sometimes a man has a bent penis in which the curvature is excessive, perhaps to the degree that it can impact his sexual performance due to difficulty in inserting said penis. But does an extremely bent penis also carry the risk of creating an erectile issue?

When Erectile Dysfunction Strikes a Young Guy

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, May 4, 2017, In : Men's Health 

It’s the one thing concerning the penis that men don’t like to talk about: erectile dysfunction. Probably the single biggest reason that men pay extra special attention to their penis health is to keep erectile dysfunction at bay. 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.

Could Erectile Dysfunction and Blood Type Be Linked?

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

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. Yet this issue can have many different factors as a cause, some of which may be beyond the control of any man - and a study in an Italian medical journal raises the possibility that one of those causes may be a guy’s own blood type.

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. And though every man had the occasional erectile dysfunction - usually after a night of drinking too much! - sometimes the problem continues through several sex sessions.

When that happens, it is vitally important to get things checked out. That’s because go...

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. Clearly, erectile dysfunction is linked to the greater area of penis health, but it can also be related to more general health matters. 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. Whatever the cause, performance problems are a sign of poor penis health that requires diag...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is often thought of as an age-related problem; unfortunately, men who are a little past their prime may be too quick to dismiss impotence issues as a natural side effect of the aging process.

The physiology of an erection is highly complex and involves almost all of the systems of the body. Fortunately, most aspects of the process happen without much in the way of conscious control, meaning that a man doesn’t need to know exactly how it works in order to get it up.

While guys tend to pride themselves on their ability to get an erection on call, this same issue can become problematic when a woody shows up uninvited at the wrong time.

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, June 18, 2013, In : Men's Health 

What is Peyronie’s disease?

Peyronie’s disease refers to the occurrence of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis.

In spite of its sensitivity, the penis is a fairly resilient instrument. It has to be, given the rough treatment it is subjected to on a regular basis. However, like the rest of the body, the manhood is not invulnerable, and it can develop overuse injuries and other issues that lead to pain.

A diagnosis of prostate cancer is frightening, and hundreds of thousands of men each year are forced to face the difficult decision about what to do next. In many cases, men are advised by their doctors to "wait and see" how the disease progresses, and some research indicates that, especially in older men, surgery is not always necessary.

In today’s world, there seems to be an ongoing conflict between the need to convince people of the dangers of obesity and the need to let everyone know that they are worthwhile and attractive no matter what. While it is true that a person’s worth is not based on their physical appearance, and body type is not an indicator of humanity, the hard truth is that being overweight is simply not healthy.

Penis Performance Boosters – Fire it Up with L-Arginine

Posted by John Dugan on Saturday, April 6, 2013, In : Men's Health 

A piece of fried chicken served with a glass of milk can supply men with L-arginine, an enzyme that's considered vital for penis health. However, that chicken dinner must take a long and tortured course through the body before it reaches the organ in question, and sometimes, the body spends its L-arginine quota before it ever reaches the penis, leaving the penile tissues starving for the nutrition they need. As a result, supplementation can be considered an important part of a man's penis p...

When things go awry in the bedroom for a man, the problem is often attributed to the physical health of the penis. While it is true that conditions such as blood pressure, diabetes, heart health or other problems with the plumbing can contribute to a less than Oscar-worthy performance between the sheets, there may also be psychological factors at play.

An erect penis is a force to be reckoned with, and it's reasonable for men to compare notes and wonder if the tool they've been given measures up to the equipment of other guys. But if an erection is the yardstick by which men are measured, the judging can get tricky, as erections can look vastly different, depending on a man's anatomical gifts, hereditary tendencies and penis care techniques.

At one time or another, most men are likely to run into problems with impotence - even younger men may have erectile issues once in a while. For men who are otherwise healthy, an unresponsive penis can be an embarrassment and an inconvenience; but for men who are affected by diabetes, loss of erectile function can be a chronic problem.

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. Raising a man’s NO level can improve his sexual health by causing a relaxation of blood vessels through a process called a vasodilation, stimulating a greater blood flow through the penis. 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...

Bike Commuters: Improper Technique And Poor Seats May Lead To Erectile Dysfunction

Bicycles aren't just for kids anymore. As consumers look for ways to cut costs and reduce their carbon footprints, they're hitting the open road on their bikes and leaving their gas-guzzling cars in the driveway. A quick commute on a bike can cost a rider nothing at all, and the buzz from the workout could help that commuter focus at work and perhaps handle day-to-day stresses just a little bit better. It all sounds ideal, but men who ride their bikes for more than three hours per week, resea...
