I’m trying to picture this one in my head. You’d start by saying something like: “Son, when I was a boy I used to masturbate. Now I’m trying to cure my impotence with male enhancement products like VigRx Plus.”
And he’d be out the door before you could finish the sentence, wouldn’t he? Who wants to hear about his father’ problems with erectile dysfunction and his attempt to cure it with penis pills?
Though I’m all for talking to kids, teenage boys and girls do not, under any circumstances, want to hear about their parents’ masturbatory habits. Nor do they want to discuss their own with their parents.
Topics such as masturbation, sex, penis enlargement, and male enhancement pills should be dealt with before children get to the point where they would rather chop off their right hand than have their parents know what they use it for.
On the upside, you are probably worrying about nothing. Only a very small minority of boys masturbate their penis face down and although there is a school of thought which suggests that masturbating prone might be linked to erectile dysfunction, very little research has been done on the subject. In any case, I don’t think psychological treatment is going to help his penis find a new source of attraction.
In 1998, Dr. Lawrence I. Sank published a paper in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, which established a link between masturbating the penis in the prone position and erectile dysfunction.
Dr. Sank based his research on only four male patients, one of whom was a 62-year-old African-American man who had recently started his first sexual relationship after decades spent in a religious order. He found that he needed a four-week treatment of the male enhancement product called VigRx Plus in order to re-awaken his penis.
In 2003, Josie Lipsith and Dr. David Goldmeier cited Dr. Sank’s research in a paper “Male psychogenic sexual dysfunction: the role of masturbation”, which was published in the Journal of Sexual and Relationship Therapy, but still, the relationship between prone masturbation of the penis and erectile dysfunction could hardly be described as well established. Ultimately, there is no evidence that natural male enhancement pills would fix this so-called penis problem.
On the downside, more than half of all men aged from 40 to 70 suffer from some degree of erectile dysfunction. Illness (diabetes, high blood pressure, nerve or heart conditions), medications (antidepressants, beta-blockers) or lifestyle choices (alcohol, smoking or drugs) can all cause erectile dysfunction.
In younger men, performance problems with the penis can also be triggered by psychological problems such as stress, anxiety, relationship problems or even something as simple as feeling insecure about wearing a condom.
Often erectile dysfunction is triggered by a combination of the physical and psychological. Occasional erectile difficulties caused by too much to drink or a stressful day at work start a cycle of self-doubt that aggravates the problem.
Whatever the cause of your penis difficulties, it is essential that you get yourself checked out by a doctor. Erectile dysfunction affects about one man in ten and is usually treatable, often with something so simple as a natural herbal remedy such as VigRx Plus, yet according to the Sexual Dysfunction Association, only about 10 percent of men get any treatment for it.
There are countless pharmaceutical options and natural male enhancement products available, but making lifestyle changes is equally important. If you smoke, now is the time to stop. And keep alcohol to a minimum. You need to try to reduce your stress levels, too.
Regular exercise is probably the single most important way that you (and your son) can improve your health and stop your erectile function deteriorating. Exercise is good for the penis! It also sets a great example to your son.
Walking to work, taking the stairs, jogging, swimming, surfing or playing football in the park will make you both stronger, healthier and fitter. If you exercise regularly, you might not even need male enhancement products.
