Missing Out on Sexual Pleasure?

No matter how taboo talking about sex in our society is considered to be, let’s face it that the broader outlook on this issue has to be attained in order to bid adieu to several significant problems prevalent in the society. Who is not familiar with the renowned and basic Maslow’s hierarchy of needs! After physiological and safety needs, he has placed love and belonging needs on the third level in which sexual intimacy shares a major space. There cannot be put much emphasis on how indispensable sex is for healthy body as well as quality life.

Nerve-wracking lifestyle, however, these days has given birth to discrete sexual problems in men becoming a hindrance in their way of enjoying happy sexual life. Sexual dysfunction is defined as the inability to have a satisfactory sexual relationship. Read on if you are also one of those who have fallen prey to the following undesired sexual problems.

1. Low libido – Low libido is the condition in which sexual desire is diminished or totally absent. This sexual desire problem affects quite a small segment of men of the general population. Libido is mainly a hormonal and brain phenomenon. Sexual desire requires normal levels of male hormone, that is, testosterone in the blood and a certain attraction for the partner in question.

There are many causes which can contribute to the declined sexual desire in men, such as alcohol, fatigue, recreational drugs, sexual aversion disorder, anxiety, devoid of time, certain medication, depression, hypoactive sexual disorder, testosterone deficiency, relationship problems, history of sexual abuse, fear of humiliation, systemic illness and hormonal problem like hyperthyroidism.

2. Erectile dysfunction – Erectile dysfunction, commonly known as impotency, is defined as the inability to acquire or maintain a satisfactory erection to conduct sexual intercourse. There exists three types of erections; one which is caused by tactile stimulation, another is caused by mental stimulation and the last is which men experience while asleep. In order to have an erection, men need stimuli; they need blood arriving from the arteries and veins capable of locking the blood in place. Each of the numerous steps in this system can fail making erectile dysfunction a complex problem for investigation.

Potential causes behind erectile dysfunction are neurologic causes including stroke, dementia, pelvic trauma, epilepsy, spinal cord or back injury, prostate surgery, diabetic neuropathy, nervous system tumor, multiple sclerosis; vascular causes involving diabetes, atherosclerosis, congenital anomaly; hormonal causes comprising low testosterone blood level, hyperthyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, hypothyroidism, Cushing’s disease, Addison’s disease; and penile dysfunction like Peyronie’s disease.

3. Premature ejaculation – Premature ejaculation is the most common of the ejaculatory disorders resulting in approximately 20%-30% of men suffering from this. Ejaculation problems constitute the improper discharge of sperm, prostatic and seminal vesicle fluid through the urethra.
There are three sorts of ejaculation problems:

Premature ejaculation – Ejaculation after minimal or no physical stimulation
Retarded ejaculation – Ejaculation after a long delay of physical stimulation
Retrograde ejaculation – Orgasm without ejaculation, also known as “dry” ejaculation

Premature ejaculation may be caused by negative conditioning and penile hypersensitivity. Retarded ejaculation may be an early sign of diabetes or may develop following surgery for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Retrograde ejaculation may be caused by radical prostatectomy, cystoprostatectomy (removal of the bladder and the rectum), or the use of certain medications such as alpha-blockers (tamsulosin) and antidepressants (SSRIs).

4. Disordered orgasm – Disordered orgasm is the inability to reach an orgasm after adequate stimulation. However, orgasm differs from person to person and is a phenomenon that is poorly understood.
The causes of disordered orgasm incorporate psychiatric disorder, multiple sclerosis, pelvic trauma, diabetic neuropathy, drugs and complications from genital surgery.

As it has been aforestated that your lifestyle choices can create quite havoc to your sexual life. Certain habits not only affect your overall health but could have a drastic impact on your sex life more than you could have imagined.
Follow the following instructions and try the natural remedies mentioned for curing male sexual impotence.

1. Get Set Go

Exercises

There are many lifestyle changes that can help treat sexual dysfunction but exercise is the change that can have the greatest impact. Exercise works on several fronts to combat the male impotency and helps reverse it once it has become a problem. Exercise improves blood flow which is vitally important for a strong erection as well as improves blood pressure by increasing nitric oxide in blood vessels, the manner in which Viagra works. Testosterone, being a significant factor in erectile strength and sex drive, can be increased by weight bearing exercise.

2. Balanced Diet

Diet

What you eat has an immense impact on your sexual health. A diet rich in fruits, veggies, whole grains and fish, with fewer servings of red meat and refined grains minimizes the risk of male sexual dysfunction. Certain foods, however, are particularly consumed for combating with this problem, such as, garlic referred to as “the poor man’s penicillin” because it is a sex rejuvenator; carrot known to enhance sexual stamina; onion considered to be an effective aphrodisiac and one of the best libido enhancers; lady finger which improves masculine strength and ease erection; and drumsticks which treat sexual debility and functional infertility.

3. Quit Smoking

Quit Smoking

Smoking can worsen your plight since it interferes with your circulatory system and is linked to the vascular diseases which cause sexual dysfunction. If you’re having trouble sustaining an erection, it might be high the time that you give up those cigarettes for your own good. If quitting right away doesn’t seem possible, try to cut back as much as you can. Limiting your smoking to few cigarettes a day is anytime better than smoking a whole pack.

4. Sleeping Schedules

Sleeping

Poor sleeping patterns can be another contributing factor to unsatisfactory sex life. It has been found in a study conducted on the impact of sleep loss on testosterone levels in men that low concentrations of sex hormones are associated with sexual dysfunction. Hormone secretion is controlled by the body’s internal clock and sleep patterns help the body determine when to release certain hormones. Sticking to a set sleep schedule is a natural treatment which ensures that those signals are clear and consistent.

5. Relieve Stress

Stress

They say worry is like a funeral pyre and indubitably anxiety turns out to be the biggest culprit when it comes to impotency. Indulge yourself in stress buster techniques. Carve out an effective time management strategy for you to give yourself much needed breaks from your tightly packed schedule. Intake plenty of water and spend more time outdoors amid the nature inhaling fresh air. Do not bottle up your emotions inside you; if something is bothering you, talk it out. Communicate with your partner.
