Nothing is more wonderful for the human spirit, body, and mind than the free and uninhibited expression of sexuality. Nothing is more glorious than the joyful sharing of physical pleasure between two generous, enthusiastic human beings. A current plague of confusion and self-consciousness causes most men to have less sex than they would like, and they enjoy the sex they do have a lot less.
As a health benefit, sex should be a fun and relaxing part of your life, not a chore. It is certainly life’s cheapest luxury. But for too many men and women, sex has become a worrisome task—a source of tension, a burden. Sex is viewed as a problem to solve or a test to take. On the contrary, sex should be simple and natural, and it should bring a pleasure that erases worries, tensions, and burdens.
Using your penis for the purpose nature intended not only gives us one of life’s great pleasures but also provides excellent health benefits. Sex is good for your cardiovascular health, your mood, and your psychological well-being. Penis use is a natural tranquilizer with no bad side effects. Sex also provides physical exercise and is excellent for overall fitness. It benefits circulation, stimulates the nervous system and the prostate gland, and clears up mental cobwebs by invigorating the whole body.
Men who are sexually frustrated tend to be tense and irritable, and they often seem angry at the world. Anger is an emotion to be avoided at all costs, as it has an adverse effect on your mental and cardiovascular health. But men who are sexually satisfied and feel good about themselves as sexual beings tend to have a positive outlook and a warm glow of health.
Contrary to certain myths, you cannot wear out your penis with sexual activity. There is no preset allotment of orgasms. Vigorous exercise of the penis is best expressed with the childhood ditty “Use it, use it, you cannot abuse it, and if you don’t, you’re gonna lose it.”
The general condition of your mind and body is reflected in the health of your penis power. For that reason, it is vital for men to maintain a high level of mental and physical well-being. Here are some basic tips:
- Get fit and stay fit: A good exercise program is central to overall health and sexual fitness. It takes energy and strength to make love. The muscles of your arms, legs, back, and abdomen are all involved. If your body becomes flabby, your penis also risks becoming flabby. Build up your muscle strength with weights, push-ups, sit-ups, yoga, or whatever exercise you prefer. You don’t have to be sculpted like a Greek god, but it is important to develop muscular strength and flexibility.
- Commit to cardiovascular fitness: A vigorous half hour of aerobic exercise four or five times a week is recommended for developing and maintaining cardiovascular fitness. Physical inactivity leads to deterioration of your body as a whole and can also lead to deterioration of your penis power. If you start wheezing or gasping for breath while making love, your penis will get the message that you need to rest, and that is exactly what it will do.
- Pay attention to what you eat: A diet low in saturated fat and high in fiber is the most effective diet for maintaining penis power. Getting the proper amount of blood flow is essential to maintaining an erection, and sufficient blood flow depends on clean arteries. Do not gum up the works by ingesting saturated fats and bad cholesterol. If you have ever made love when you felt bloated or constipated, you know how much better you function when your digestive system is not overtaxed. Do not overeat—and make sure you consume plenty of fiber. Wining and dining can be romantic, but the romance withers if you overdo either one. Too much alcohol might increase your desire, but it will surely diminish your penis power. Too much dining will make you feel sluggish, heavy, and tired.
In addition, the maintenance of good prostate health is essential. Reliable evidence supports a low-fat, high-fiber, high-protein diet in addition to regular exercise as part of a good overall regimen to keep your prostate healthy.
- Maintain weight control: Let’s face the truth—it is a lot easier to operate smoothly and vigorously in bed if you are not carrying a 20-pound belt of blubber around your waist. Not only are there health risks to being overweight, but for most women, a lean physique is much more attractive than a chubby one. But even more important than how other people see you is your perception of your body. Maintaining a healthy body weight encourages self-confidence and promotes a healthy and positive outlook on life. In addition, if you are overweight and looking down at your penis from above a big belly, you might start thinking of your penis as small because layers of fat obscure so much of it. The illusion of a short penis, in turn, will cause you to think “small” about your penis power.
In general, I have found that men with poor body images have some degree of penis weakness. Men who are comfortable with their bodies and are content with their looks have a higher likelihood for super potency. Believe it or not, men with positive body images are not necessarily hunks. Some good-looking, well-built men have far worse body images than men with ordinary bodies. It is all a matter of how you see yourself. Some men are so insecure and vain that if they do not see a “Brad Pitt” when they look in the mirror, they hate their bodies and ultimately spread a pall of negativity on their self-esteem. Others are content with what nature gave them, as long as they stay in reasonable shape. Every man is capable of realizing his personal body-image goals. To start, set your standards of health and fitness, maintain a regular routine, and above all, have more sex!
