Your sexual drive naturally depends on your health. This explains why stressed couples in the Philippines often end up sharing they don’t enjoy their intimate moments together. Fortunately, it is easier to bring the lost libido back and enjoy a better and healthier sex life. The tips below are based on the scientific and medical findings and are often advised by doctors for male patients having problems in their relationship with their partners due to reduced intimacy level. These tips are applicable for both young and old males who are looking for ways to have better “emission” than they have now.
Eat Healthy Food. It may come as a surprise to know that what you eat affects your sexual performance but that’s the truth and that has been proven using both scientific and medical methods. It also explains why some foods are believed to increase the sexual drive of a person. Foods with lower fat contents are often advised by doctors; that goes without saying that diets that are rich in vitamins and nutrients (i.e. vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and lean cuts of meat) greatly improve one’s libido.
Stop Smoking. You should know that smoking slowly causes erectile dysfunction in men and in the long run, it can make men impotent permanently. This is all because of the toxic substances found in cigarettes. Scientific research found that a specific substance found abundant in cigarettes causes harm to the testes which will greatly affect sperm’s morphology and vitality. Psychologically, many men find smoking more satisfying than sex that’s why many prefer to puff than to kiss their partner.
Engage Into Regular Exercise. Medical studies show that athletic men have more libido and more aggressive during intercourse than men who are timid and inactive. It is because men who are active in sports have longer stamina. These men can surely enjoy during intimate sessions. While not everyone have to time for sports, engaging into light exercises such as walking, jogging, or cycling may offer the same benefits as those who are into more extensive activities. Well, it’s really about muscles don’t you think?
Reduce Alcohol Intake. Surely, men enjoy having booze with friends (at least, most of us). However, if you and your partner are thinking of making love after a drinking session, you might not want to get yourself drowned in alcohol. Medical research suggests that alcohol reduces men’s desire to have sex. Eventually, men who get drunk have difficulty getting and maintaining erections. It has also been noted that alcohol increases men’s sexual aggression and in the long run, it will result to infertility.
Manage Stress. Construction workers, call center agents or anyone working under a very stressful environment often want to spend time sleeping after work. Also, people who are anxious, worried or those who have big problems don’t want to have sex. Stress is a real pleasure-killer that always has a very dangerous effect to one’s personality. Managing it would be the perfect way to avoid sexual and psychological problems.
Always Avoid Use Illegal Substance. More often people think that using illegal substances would give them the sexual boost they need. However, doctors say they give different results. Testimonies of those who have already tried it suggest such method does not really bring satisfaction as it is unnatural.
Have A Yearly Physical Checkup. Health practitioners always advise that men and women have to undergo an annual physical checkup to evaluate their overall and sexual health. While it is not imperative, it is still very important to know the condition of your body.
So, there you go. I hope this post could somehow help you have a healthier and better sexual life. Don’t forget to share this with your friends whom you think are having issues with their partners.
