There are three things men can do to improve their sexual performance. Often men go to their doctor and never discuss this important topic that worries so many men at one time or another. Aside from the usual advice on diet and exercise, men often have to wonder and speculate about what they can do to help themselves be at the top of their sexual game.
1) Eat well: This means eating a variety of foods that are rich in nutrients. In order to become healthy, many men often try to lower their cholesterol levels by eliminating animal products from their diet. The problem with this is that the man is missing out on essential nutrients that are critical to overall sexual performance. Animal protein is especially helpful for the brain and nervous system because it contains fats and proteins that are essential for nerves. These include the essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Some key foods that are particularly good for the nervous system are eggs, meat, and oily fish like sardines and salmon. Seafood also contains zinc, which is considered a nutrient for manhood.
Good circulation means good sex
In addition to regular exercise, men should strive to keep their height within reasonable limits. Many experts use body mass index (BMI) as a way to distinguish healthy weights from unhealthy weights. The problem for men who use BMI as a measure of their fitness is that this measurement doesn’t take lean muscle mass into account. Lean muscle weighs more than fat. So a man can be labeled as obese based on his BMI, but actually has a very low body fat percentage.
How should a man measure his fitness? Men should have a waist of less than 40 inches (measured 1 inch above your hipbone). This significantly reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease, which directly affects sexual performance and your ability to get and maintain an erection. Ideally, the waist should be around 32 inches (plus or minus 2 inches) depending on your build. So in addition to regular cardiovascular training, strength training and a nutritious and calorie-balanced diet. There is an exercise specific to your manhood that can help you improve your sexual performance.
2) This exercise is called Kegel exercise
The pubococcygeal (PC) wraps around the base of your penis and around your anus in a figure of 8 shape. This is the muscle that allows you to stop peeing midstream. This muscle is also crucial in the ability to achieve and maintain erections and achieve orgasm. Have you heard the expression use it or loose it? That couldn’t be truer than in this department. This muscle can atrophy in both men and women if not exercised regularly. The more you train your PC muscle, the firmer your erection can be. The way you do it is to contract the muscle and hold it for five seconds and then release. Repeat 10 times and do at least 5-6 sets a day. Kegel exercises restore muscle tone and strength in the PC muscle. The next time you visit a healthcare provider for an annual physical exam, you can ask if you’re doing it correctly if you’re still unsure.
The male genitals are more than just the penis and testicles
About 1-2 inches behind your bladder lies an organ that is often overlooked when it comes to men’s health until something serious happens and it needs to be removed. That organ is the prostate. The prostate is a vital gland responsible for the volume of semen produced during an ejaculation. In fact, the prostate makes up 70% of ejaculate. However, it should be treated before your 50th birthday when you would normally have it checked for the first time.
3) Prostate massage is recommended again as researchers discover that prostate massage complements and increases the effectiveness of antibiotics in the treatment of chronic prostatitis. Many find prostate massage to be successful even where other means have failed. Or would you prefer a massage instead of long-term medication. Prostate massage can relieve symptoms, improve blood flow to the prostate, empty the gland, promote bladder health and improve sexual ability. Why? Because a large part of the sexual function is, as already mentioned, dependent on the circulatory system.
Prostate massage can be used as a therapeutic strategy to promote health by increasing blood flow to the prostate. Similar to a massage of the rest of the body, it has a therapeutic effect on your muscles and general well-being. It can be done 1 to 3 times a week to relieve the symptoms of chronic prostatitis. There is also some data to suggest that prostate massage may be helpful in treating premature ejaculation. If you are symptom-free and want to reap the benefits of a prostate massage, a weekly to twice-monthly massage is enough to promote prostate health.
A word of caution about prostate massage
While this has benefits, it’s very important to make sure you don’t have acute prostatitis, as it can lead to a serious infection that will require hospitalization. For this reason, it is recommended that you only see an experienced healthcare provider such as a Nurse Practitioner (NP) or Physician (MD or DO). Not all medical providers perform this service as it is not usually covered by insurance and is somewhat time consuming. It can take up to 20 minutes for drainage to occur. It may be possible to find an NP or MD/DO who won’t accept insurance anyway and be willing to do so. Some massage therapists have been trained in this particular massage technique. They are a suitable and alternative. Significant damage (bleeding and tearing) can occur if done too vigorously. It should be done with no more pressure than you put on your eyeball.
The three steps men can take to improve their sexual performance. Eat well, do Kegal exercises, and get a prostate massage from a qualified healthcare provider.
