To preserve s3xual health, men need to maintain healthy habits and, periodically, do a general check up of their health. Despite this, many men still maintain harmful habits which, in the short, medium or long term, harm their s3xual life. It’s just that many do so for lack of knowledge.
How is your s3xual life? Would you like to have more knowledge about what to do to improve it? According to Webmd – Here are at least 4 common habits that damage men’s s3xual health and what you can do to avoid them!
1. Cigarette smoking is the enemy of s3x
This is a reality that many men already know, but still insist on continuing smoking. This happens, most of the time, because the man is already dependent, with a smoking addiction and feels difficulties in quitting the bad habit.
Smoking harms male s3xual health as it damages nerves and blood vessels, making arteries too narrow and thus compromising the blood flow to the male reproductive organs. This is the problem known clinically as vasoconstriction.
Men who smoke a lot end up having their penile sensitivity affected and their s3xual performance tends to drop a lot. Another problem for smokers is that they take longer to become aroused.
2. A poor diet compromises male s3xual health
For many scholars, the secret to good health and a long life lies in proper nutrition. This is what writers like Monteiro Lobato and H. G. Wells (author of a book which talked about the food of the gods, a special diet which allowed men to become immortal) thought.
Modern man is characterised by the exaggerated consumption of fats and sugars, present in fried foods, soft drinks and other foods. Excess fat and sugar make digestion slower and, if consumed just before s3xual intercourse, can hinder men’s performance.
The slower the digestion process, the more energy it consumes, weakening men’s physical activities.
Besides, fats can clog veins and arteries, impairing the blood flow in the body, especially in the male reproductive organs region.
Deficient diet, in the long term, increases cholesterol, triglycerides, glycemia, developing metabolism and cardiovascular problems, such as hypertension and diabetes, diseases that damage the blood vessels, the erector mechanism and lubrication.
3. Sedentary lifestyle negatively affects s3xual performance
Another habit that hinders male s3xual health is the famous sedentarism, very common in the modern man, who has developed technology capable of performing almost everything alone, and seeks more comfort in the routine of his life.
Technology is a benefit, no doubt, but it cannot be an obstacle to the practice of physical activities. Men need to practice physical exercises, walks and sports. Weight training is an example of physical activity that helps improve performance in bed.
A sedentary lifestyle tends to cause the same effects as a poor diet, increasing cholesterol and blood sugar, favoring heart and metabolism diseases, compromising the blood vessels, erection and lubrication.
It also makes men unwell, tired and irritated, hindering s3xual intercourse.
The sedentary person tends to have less endorphin circulating in the organism, which leads to low self-esteem, fundamental for a good s3xual performance.
4. The exaggerated use of medication harms s3xuality
Another thing that harms male s3xual health is the indiscriminate use of medication, even those more common, but which are prone to cause side effects in the long term.
Certain medications, such as some that are indicated for depression, hormonal problems, diabetes or hypertension, can interfere in the erection process, reduce sexual desire, influence heart rate and hinder blood flow.
