Lasting Longer May Lead to Better Sex

No man wants to be known as being “quick on the trigger” while in bed, so lasting longer during intercourse is a big goal for many men. While this is not exactly a penis health issue in the way that, say, penis odor may be, it still can be a significant concern. For those for whom “better sex” means “lasting longer after penetrating,” the following may be of some help.

It’s natural – sort of

So, the fact of the matter is that it seems that men tend to orgasm before their mates is somewhat natural. Studies have shown that, on average, a man will ejaculate some 6 or so minutes after he first penetrates the vagina. By contrast, the typical woman requires about 13 minutes – and very often she requires more than just intercourse to achieve her orgasm.

So how can a guy last longer and achieve better sex if Nature has stacked the odds against him? It’s a challenge, but he can try the following

Penis Care of the Uncircumcised Man

Circumcision has long been a practice filled with controversy, and that seems to become even more contentious as time goes on. There are some who swear by circumcision as a way to alleviate the many problems a man can suffer with penis health as he grows older. However, there are also those that decry circumcision as destroying a man’s unique penis sensitivity, and in some cases, the practice is even seen as mutilation – it’s a surgical procedure that a man cannot consent to at a young age, but something that will affect him for the rest of his life. No wonder the issue is so fraught with concern!

But there is one area where much of the public and physicians agree: Those who are uncircumcised often have more penis health issues than those who are circumcised. This is thanks to the foreskin, which preserves full sensitivity for the man but can also cause problems for some. From a foreskin that is far too tight to one that is adhered firmly to the penis to the

Want a Healthy Penis? Look to Overall Health

Every man knows that there are certain “must have” penis care steps to keep a penis as healthy as possible. That includes good hygiene, such as showering on a regular basis, carefully cleaning the penis with a gentle cleanser, and taking the time to inspect the penis on a daily basis to make sure it’s healthy. Other factors come into play too, such as using a condom to protect a healthy penis, seeing the doctor at the first sign of a problem, and making sure to make good use of his favorite tool in order to keep things flowing freely, so to speak.

But there are other factors that matter, such as a man’s overall health. Here’s what he should be looking for when it comes to a holistic approach to penis care.

Keep a Healthy Diet

Paying attention to penis skin care is part of any good penis health regimen. Most men know the basics, but here are some more “rare” penis skin care tips to remember.

Tips

Razor Burn Can Cause an Itchy Penis

As a quick glance around the locker room may confirm, more and more men are manscaping nowadays. Whether it’s a total torso right-to-the-skin shave or just a neat-and-tidy trim of the pubic hair, it’s common now for men to take their razors and move below the neck nowadays. As long as a guy is appropriately careful when shaving the penis and balls, there’s no overt penis health issue, of course. But there can be a secondary issue when manscaping leads to razor burn, namely an itchy penis.

Razor burn

Most men who are regular shavers already have some familiarity with razor burn. Also known as razor bumps or barber’s itch, and clinically called pseudofolliculitis barbae (when anywhere on the body) or pseudofolliculitis pubis (when specifically on the penis, balls or crotch), razor burn is a situation where small, raised red bumps appear after shaving. (Although typically not immediately after shaving; at first, skin appears to fee

Wearable Viagra? Well, kind of. No, you don’t make a bracelet of little blue pills and string it around your junk.

Is the Keto Craze Increasing Penis Odor?

Diet fads come and go with alarming regularity – which isn’t to say they don’t necessarily have benefits, merely that there always seems to be some new diet coming along that attracts a great deal of attention for at least a while. Recently, the keto (for ketogenic) diet popped up on the scene and went viral quickly. And as it has become more popular, questions have been raised about whether it might not contribute to any penis health issues – most prominently, to penis odor.

About the keto diet

The basic premise behind the keto diet is not really new and has formed the basis of many previous diet trends. Essentially, the idea is to cut down on carbohydrates and increase proteins and fats. When the body is absorbing only small amounts of carbohydrates, it has less of the readily-available ingredients needed for blood sugar levels. With few carbohydrates to get energy from, it switches to fats and proteins instead. And when it do

Penis Function Challenge: Treating Anejaculation

Penis function is a valuable and important subset of penis health and one which, when in the midst of sexual situations, is of primary importance to a man. After all, when with a partner in bed, the last thing a man wants to be concerned about is whether his penis will operate in the manner that is expected. Often, penis function matters revolve around erectile issues or around premature ejaculation, but there can be other penis function concerns – such as anejaculation.

About anejaculation

Because it is not something that occurs commonly, few men are even aware that anejaculation exists. Simply put, anejaculation refers to a situation in which a man is unable to ejaculate semen. This is not the same thing as impotence, as most men with anejaculation have a penis that still responds to stimulation and can become aroused and erect; many men with anejaculation are even able to experience an orgasm. It is simply not accompanied by the traditional ex
