Whoever said that the penis is man’s best friend, wasn’t kidding! At least… it can be, if it is in working order! There are many problems a guy can have with his own best friend. Some are worried about the size, some are worried about the shape. But the biggest problem of all… might very well be the problem you’ve got when it’s not working. Or when it’s working, but its performance is sub par.
In most men, the penis will become erect just so long as they are sexually aroused and not feeling incredibly pressured to perform. But for some guys, it’s not that easy anymore finding the sex drive that you need in order to pleasure their partner. However, there are ways to increase your libido. For most men, this will mean that their best friend starts performing again as it always has!
Prescription Drugs For Male Sexual Enhancement
Naturally, when a guy’s got a problem with a disfunctional penis… he’s going to be thinking about Viagra, Cialis, Levitra and other male enhancement drugs that are available through a prescription. While it is true that these drugs have a very high success rate, they are not the end all solution to your libido problems.
The Downsides To Enhancement Drugs
While these prescription drugs can work wonders, the downside is that your doctor will have to prescribe them to you. The reality of the situation is that not all guys will be able to convince their doctors that these type of drugs are the right solution for them.
And even when you do manage to get your doctor to prescribe them to you, they will still not melt away your problems like snow in the sun. There are real side effects that you can find yourself suffering from when you go on prescription male enhancement drugs. Side effects that have been observed over the past few years:
- allergic reactions
- chest pain
- prolonged (painful) erections
You’re going to have to ask yourself whether or not an increased libido is worth it. There is no such thing as a panacea when it comes to libido problems, unfortunately.
And even when male enhancement medication does work for you without the side effects or with very little side effects… there is still the very real risk that you will become addicted to these drugs. That means if you go off the drugs, you won’t be able to perform at all anymore.
When it comes to prescription drugs, you’ve got to keep a clear head. They are not the final solution to your penile problems There are trade offs and you will have to think whether or not it’s worth it. Everybody’s situation is unique. It’s best to inform yourself as well as you can before taking the plunge.
Over The Counter Natural Supplements For Increased Libido
Another option at your disposal for enhancing your best friend’s functionality, is to take the natural route and buy supplements that are available over the counter. These kinds of supplements aren’t nearly as risky or dangerous as prescription drugs are, but whether they actually work or not remains unclear.
Some men have reported an increase in penile performance through natural supplements that contain natural ingredients such as:
- Wild Yam
- Gingko Bilbao
- Korean Ginseng
Any natural supplement that supposedly increased penis health is likely to contain one or more of these ingredients. All these kinds of supplements are always some kind of blend of botanical ingriends and herbs.
L-arginine’s Effectiveness Has Been Well Documented By Science
L-arginine, for example, is scientifically known to help people with erectile dysfunction, because it increases the blood flow to the penis when it is supposed to jump into action.
L-arginine is one of the 20 amino acids that our bodies use to make the much needed building blocks for itself: proteins.
You may ask yourself why it’s called ‘L-arginine’ and not just plain ‘arginine’. That’s because arginine comes in two shapes: D-arginine and L-arginine. And the latter just so happens to be most compatible with the human body.
The body can synthesize L-arginine on its own. Therefore, it is called a ‘non essential amino acid’.
However, not everybody’s body synthesizes enough of it in order to get good blood circulation in their penis. So it helps to make sure you get some extra of this wonderful amino acid from some other source. Getting it through food rather than supplements, will be the easiest and most inexpensive way.
Some Of The Best L-arginine Food Sources
In order to get a decent amount of L-arginine in you, you don’t necessarily have to drive down to your local apothecary and buy expensive supplements. You can also get a good L-arginine intake from regular food.
For your convenience, here’s a list of foods that are known to contain lots of L-arginine:
- sunflower seeds
- brazil nuts
- pistachio nuts
- flax seeds
Looking at the list, I’m sure you’ll have noticed that most of these foods are nuts! Imagine that… nuts to help you increase your penis health… You can’t make this stuff up!
If you don’t like nuts, then there are other foods that will help you get a good L-arginine intake as well. Most of them are fruits, vegetables and fish. And if you don’t like any of those, then you can still get moderate amounts of L-arginine from eggs, milk and pork. If you don’t like any of those either… you’ve got a problem!
What More Can You Do To Combat Impotency?
We all get older and with each passing year after 15, we gradually lose our ability for physical performance. That doesn’t mean we’re all destined to die as impotent, old men. There are steps you can take to prevent spiralling down the can, penis-wise.
The fact of the matter is that if you are living an unhealthy lifestyle, you are at a much higher risk of developing problems with your penis. If you’re living on a junkfood diet of cheesburgers and cola, chances are your performance in the sack is already much lower than that of the average, healthy male.
The excessive smoking of cigarettes and drinking of alcohol also don’t really do anything except take your libido away. Smoking pretty much destroys your blood circulation. Alcohol abuse causes drops in testosterone and shrinking (damaging) of the testicles.
Think about it. What are the two things you need most in order to achieve good, hard erections?
- Good blood circulation
- High testosterone levels
Just call me ‘Captain Obvious’ from now on.
Eating healthy and physical exercise is probably your best bet against a flacid weener. And when I say ‘physical exercise’, I don’t necessarily mean ‘sports’ only. Some penis enlargement exercises are also known to increase overall penile health. But more on that in another post!
Living A Healthy Lifestyle Is The Best Weapon Against Impotence!
The good news is that most of you have the power to turn your life around and get better performance in the bedroom. The bad news is that you’re going to have to work at it. You can’t simply buy your way out of an erectile dysfunction problem. You will have to invest some time and energy in your own body.
Oh sure… everybody loves to stuff junkfood down their faces, but the reality of the situation is that you’d be better off with broccoli. At first, it might be tough making the switch from a junkfood addicted couch potato kind of lifestyle to a more healthy lifestyle that includes vegetables and exercise… but you bet your ass it’s going to be worth it!
Don’t spend too much time thinking about what a shame it is to have had a lowered libido for all those years due to junkfood. Instead, be glad you’ve got the power to change it and look forward to seeing some results from your hard efforts!
Did you know you only need about 20 minutes of exercise in order to become ‘fit’? It might seem to good to be true, but it’s true. Don’t take my word for it. Instead, just try it. Start by taking a walk every day. Maybe later you can incorporate some jogging and maybe even weight lifting. A bit of physical exercise works wonders for your penis’ performance!
In Order To Get The Pressure On, Get The Pressure Off!
While a healthy lifestyle including fruits, veggies, nuts and physical exercise is going to work wonders for your physical health… you’re also going to need a certain amount of mental health.
If you are currently suffering from…
… odds are you’re still not going to be able to perform as well as you like with your bed partner. Even when you’ve had your broccoli earlier that day!
You need to get the tension off. Every single athlete requires a clear mind in order to perform optimally. The same goes for you when you are trying to please your wife / girlfriend / boyfriend, or what have you.
It is not necessary for you to solve all the big, long running problems you have in your life in order to get some ease of mind. It’s good enough to just take your thoughts away from your job, mortgage, kids and whatnot.
Anti Depression Drugs
It is well known that anti depression drugs such as Zoloft and the like will have a negative effect on your penis’ ability to perform. I myself have tried anti depression drugs. Not only did the drug not work to make me feel better… it also took my potency away just like that.
As soon as I got off the drugs, it came back straight away. So I’m just sayin’… is an anti depression drug really worth it if it takes your sexual performance away? How does a vanished libido help you in becoming a healthier and happier person?
If you ask me, you’re much better off without most of the chemical prescription crap that big pharma is trying to shove down our collective throats. I’d rather kick anti depression medication to the curb and get rid of my anxiety in a way that’s:
- actually works
- is way more fun!
So what would that be, I hear you asking…
A good way to get yourself in the mood, is by taking your sweet time for the foreplay. You know what foreplay is, right? That’s all the touchy feely stuff you do before your soldier puts on his purple helmet.
Kisses, cuddles, caresses, massages, compliments, kind words and dirty words. Too often, people simply skip these essential steps and try to jump right into the action. As if the act of sex is just another chore to get finished that day!
It’s much better to take 30 to 60 minutes to really get in the mood with some good old fashioned foreplay to get the mind clear and the juices flowing. Hell… dim down the lights, light a few candles and play some ambient music while you’re at it. Anything worth doing… is worth doing right, isn’t it?
Summing It All Up!
While some men will be unlucky enough to have a real problem with their penis that will either require surgery or is actually unfixable, for most of us the underlying problem is with our bodies and our heads.
Living in this consumerism addicted society, we’ve gotten used to buying our way out of any problem. Even when we don’t have the money to do so. But when push comes to shove… there’s no hiding from the fact that physical exercise and a healthy diet are going to fix your penis problem right up!
Supplements aren’t completely bullshit and can give you that extra edge you need in order to be impressed with your own results. But don’t kid yourself into thinking that popping a supplement by itself is going to solve the problem.
Exercise and a good diet will not only help you become healthier (leading to an overall increase in performance of your entire body), it will also help you achieve a calm state of mind. Another one of those useful tools in improving your bedroom performance!
Speaking of which… did you know meditation can work wonders when it comes to stopping your never ending train of thoughts and clear your head?
I’m saving that one for another post, though!
