Sure, you know when your sex drive stalls, but we often assume that men are pretty much always down for sex — and that's definitely not the case. So if your guy is having a little trouble below the belt, there are several things that may be to blame. Here are a few common factors that can result in penis problems, plus tips on how to get him going again.
Kegels aren’t just for ladies anymore! For any guy who wants to last longer in bed and experience more powerful orgasms, there is one thing to do: Kegel exercises! Kegel exercises, also known as pelvic floor exercises, are designed to strengthen and tone the muscles of the pelvic floor. Like all muscles in your body, the muscles of the pelvis can be strengthened and toned through focused exercises.
It may be a hard pill to swallow (pun!), but Viagra ice cream is now available. Well, it's available for some people, but not you (sorry!) just yet. But it's only because you're not an "A-list celebrity," so don't get your panties too much in a bunch over it.
A new study done by Cardiovascular Institute of New Jersey at Rutgers University's Robert Wood Johnson Medical School found that anti-cholesterol drugs, known as statins, may help men have stronger erections.
How long you have been suffering these ailments? Has this happened overnight or chronically, over time? Can you recall an occasion you first encountered this problem? Does your erectile problem bother you all the time or you face a problem at times? Do you encounter this disorder with all your sex partners (in case there are more than one partner) or just a particular one? When you are able to have an erection, are you able to insert the penis into the vagina?
Everybody thinks they know everything they need to know about sex. However, if it was so simple, there wouldn't be so many people in need of sex therapy, marriage and relationship counseling, and there certainly wouldn't be so many relationships ending in divorce. Here are seven truths you need to know about sex.
In the past, erectile dysfunction — which affects 20-30 million American men — has been chalked up to factors like anxiety, stress, smoking and bad hygiene. While Viagra and other pills can offer a solution, there's something else men can do to ensure they perform better in bed: check their habits.
Picture this: You're in the middle of a fierce makeout session and reach down to grab what you expect will be a hard, throbbing erection. Instead, your hand is met with a disappointingly soft penis. Or maybe he's got an erection now, but loses it before you can actually get busy. Sure, what goes up must—eventually—come down, but so soon? Your first thought is probably, "Why can't he get it up? Isn't he attracted to me?"
Ladies, there's no need to get into his pants (or receive a naughty picture message) in order to gauge the size of his package. And forget that old wives tale about the size of his shoes. Instead, just take a look at the length of his fingers.
Sex Therapy can be complicated. Fortunately, sometimes it isn’t. About three months ago my patient Sam finally started dating again after his wife left him last summer. After a few nondescript experiences, he met Yolanda, they hit it off, and a few weeks later he found himself in bed with her. Two days later he came in for his weekly session. Five minutes before it ended, he mentioned how he couldn’t “y’know” when he wanted to “y’know.”
For years, manufacturers have gamely attempted to make condoms more fun to use, but alas, even the most delectably flavored varieties don't compensate for that sterile, rubbery sensation. Now, a British biotech firm has taken on the challenge by developing the CSD500, a condom that prolongs a man's erection — hence its unofficial nickname, the "Viagra condom."
Question: The last time I was getting oral sex I lost my erection and now it happens often. Why does this happen and what can I do to stop it? This can be a very common experience. As rapidly as blood engorges your penis to make it erect, the blood can just as quickly drain away leaving you limp. In fact, many men also lose their erections during sexual intercourse.
As a young girl—ovaries yet to ripen and hymen still in intact—reading Judy Blume books were like porn for me … educational porn. These were the pre-internet days, before I could Google "funny feeling down there" or "penis, hard-on." All I had was my imagination and my canon of Judy Blume books to aid my highly curious pre-teen mind. They were a permanent Sharpie mark on my burgeoning deviant mind.
When a man can't get it up, the experience for him and his partner falls somewhere between awkward and utterly mortifying—I've even heard of men not calling women back because they were so ashamed of their inability to keep it up. So what can a woman say or do when her man can't get an erection? Here are five things you can say to help make the best of the situation. Because men are so sensitive about it, and because it's about as embarrassing a moment as he can experience, it puts the woman in a really tough spot. Of course you just want to say, "Honey, is there something I can do to help?" But in some cases, that's exactly what he doesn't want to hear. He's thinking, "No, I'm just dying from the pressure here, and the last thing I want you to do is even notice, much less try to help!" Even worse is if you say, "Is there something wrong?" or "Are you okay?"—because, yes, there obviously is something wrong (you don't have to remind me!) and, no, I'm clearly not OK, I'm flaccid! So what can a woman say or do when her man can't rev up the engines? Here are a few possibilities, but know that any one of these can backfire too, depending on the circumstances. But, in order of most likely to go over well, here are five ways you can say to help make the best of the situation.
