The male organ is perhaps the most sensitive part of a man’s body. The outer layers of skin cover a fine network of sensory tissue which sends signals of pleasure (and occasionally pain) to the brain, letting the body know that it is time for a physical response. For the most part, men take the sensitivity down there for granted; it has always been responsive, so why wouldn’t it continue to feel good, barring any dramatic accidents?
The truth is that the package is subject to quite a bit of rough handling, and over time, this can lead to a loss of male organ feeling that can detract from male performance and enjoyment. It doesn’t take a major injury to dull the sensation in this delicate tissue. Some of the ways that male organ feeling can be diminished are described here, along with some male organ care tips that can help prevent loss of sensation, and in some cases even restore it.

1. Keratinized dermal tissue. Like the skin on the rest of the body, constant friction against the male organ can cause a layer of tougher skin cells to form. This process, known as keratinization, is the body’s natural response – it is a way for the skin to protect itself against further damage. Unfortunately, this tougher layer of skin can make it harder for the nerve tissue underneath to detect tactile stimulation, such as the touch of a hand. As a result, men have to work even harder to feel pleasure, which in turn leads to further damage. To prevent this from occurring, it is a good idea to use a lube for manual stimulation, not to mention fun with a partner, and to experiment with soft touch, rather than gripping the package as tightly as possible. Wearing soft, non-restrictive clothing can also help, as well as using a high-quality moisturizer.

2. Nerve damage. Some loss of male organ feeling can also occur as a result of peripheral nerve damage related to constant friction or to blunt force injury, such as banging into a partner’s pelvic bone. Another, more serious cause of nerve damage that can dull male organ sensation is a common side effect of diabetes. Men with diabetes frequently experience diabetic neuropathy, where nerve tissue throughout the body deteriorates due to high levels of blood sugar. The male organ, as well as the hands and feet, are among the first parts of the body to be affected. Following a doctor’s instructions for controlling blood sugar, as well as eating right and losing weight, are essential for preventing loss of male organ sensation and reduced reproductive health related to diabetic neuropathy.
3. Circulatory problems. Men who have circulatory issues related to cardiovascular health, and especially to smoking, often have limited circulation to the male organ. As a result, the area becomes starved of blood, causing a deterioration of nerve tissue and subsequent loss of feeling. In addition, without adequate blood flow, it may be difficult to achieve and maintain tumescence. To avoid this outcome, men should get plenty of cardio exercise. Quitting smoking can have a significant effect on circulatory health, as well; and wearing non-binding clothing and staying active can ensure better blood flow to the pelvic area.
