Guy Sex-Anatomy Facts

Always good to clear the air of any misconceptions with some solid facts about the penis:
• Big guys don’t necessarily have big penises. A 6’5” basketball player could have a tiny gherkin-sized penis while a 5’3” shrimpy guy could be extremely well-endowed.
• Likewise, you know what they say about a guy with big feet? Well it doesn’t mean squat. Big hands and feet have nothing to do with penis-size.
• Hairiness (or lack thereof) has nothing to do with virility. Guys who are hairy or who are bald have a predisposition to be that way – it has nothing to do with testosterone or libido.
• Not all guys masturbate regularly. At least 5% pass on this daily activity.
• A veiny penis is totally normal; it is not a sign of infection, infertility, or impotence.
• Mountain Dew will not decrease sperm count. People used to think that yellow dye 5m and caffeine were responsible for a drop in sperm, but both theories have been debunked.
• Not all guys are circumcised and it’s becoming more popular to leave boys fully intact. In fact, 85% of men in the world are uncircumcised. In the US, every year the number of circumcisions drops, and is now only slightly more than 50%.
• The average erect penis is about 5” long. Any hard on bigger than that is considered big.
Erectile dysfunction is not a symptom of aging. Older people are more likely to get Erectile dysfunction because of other illnesses that they’ve acquired over time and because of medications that they may be taking. This is why young men can also experience ED and problems with impotence.
• Guys can fake an orgasm too. Unless a woman knows that a guy generally ejaculates bucket-loads, it’s possible for a guy to fake climax – almost as easy as it is for his partner.

Natural Tips for Treating ED

Though some consider it a touchy subject, erectile dysfunction (ED) is nothing to hide or suffer from in silence, whether you're a man with ED or his partner. According to the the US National Institutes of Health, the number of men with erectile dysfunction may be anywhere from 15 to 30 million men and more and more doctor's office visits by men are made to seek treatment for erectile dysfunction.
Fortunately, aside from prescription medications, men looking for alternative and herbal-based treatments to try have wide variety to choose from which may be promising for providing ED relief. For example, some have used the herb ginkgo biloba successfully for ED; ginkgo works by improving blood flow to the penile veins and arteries and is without many of the side effects of medications.
Other men with decreased libido take Indian Ginseng, a tonic herb that is capable of strengthening the body and is even used by some as an aphrodisiac. Believe it or not, the amino acid, L-Arginine is used by the body to create nitric oxide, the chemical that relaxes the blood vessels, in order to diminish erectile dysfunction.
L-Arginine is found in food sources such as meat, dairy products, poultry and fish. Some men suffering from ED often have a deficiency of the mineralzinc and a simple supplement of 15-30 mg daily can help to improve their symptoms. But before considering adding supplements and medications, men with ED should consider the research which shows that those men who exercise regularly are less likely to develop impotence as they age. Researchers at the New England Research Institutes of Watertown, Mass., studied 593 men, ages 40 to 70, and found that men who burned at least 200 calories a day, were less likely to develop ED than sedentary men, so even minimal exercise is helpful when it comes to maintaining ahealthy sex life.

Impotence or erectile dysfunction

An estimated 10 to 15 million men in the United States suffer from impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction. Some people also use the term impotence to describe other problems such as lack of sexual desire and the inability to ejaculate or have an orgasm. While many people who suffer from impotence suffer in silence, it is a treatable condition at any age.
Impotence is sometimes used to describe female sexual dysfunction, which includes the broad categories of reduced sexual desire, pain during sex, inability to become aroused, and inability to have an orgasm.
Male impotence usually has an underlying medical condition that causes nerve or artery damage. Such damage can interfere with the nerve impulses that are needed to start and sustain an erection or with blood flow that is needed to engorge the tissues in the penis to make it erect. Diabetes, surgery, injuries, vascular diseases, kidney disease, and chronic alcoholism are some medical conditions that may cause impotence. Smoking can also cause impotence by narrowing the blood vessels. Since the likelihood of having some of these conditions increases with age, older men are more likely to suffer from impotence.

Prevention of erectile dysfunction,25452.asp
Many erection problems can be prevented or even reversed by a more relaxed approach to sex and by rediscovering sensuality. Sexual intimacy is a form of communication. If you and your partner talk about your lovemaking, it will help reduce your stress and anxiety, so that your sexual activity becomes more relaxed. Many people avoid talking about problems in their sexual relationship. It may gradually become more difficult to get and maintain an erection as you get older. However, foreplay and the right environment can increase your ability to have an erection, regardless of your age.
Bicycle seats can cause impotence
If you’re a cyclist, it’s a good idea to lift out of your seat when you’re going over bumpy terrain. This could help avoid vascular damage that may lead to erectile dysfunction. Researchers found that the typical narrow, pointed bike seat can crush the arteries that fill the penis with blood. When a male sits on a narrow bike seat, too much weight is placed on the area between the anus and the scrotum, where the cavernosal arteries are located. Researcher Pedram Salimpour of the Boston University School of Medicine found that about four percent of cyclists studied suffered impotence, compared to one percent of runners. Salimpour says the problem can be avoided by using special bike seats with oval gaps, similar to a toilet seat.

How High Blood Pressure Causes Erectile Dysfunction
Nobody knows exactly how high blood pressure causes erectile dysfunction and impotence. One leading theory is that the excess pressure in the blood vessels actually causes damage to small arteries in the penis.
Normally, these arteries dilate in response to sexual stimulation, allowing more blood to flow into the spongy tissue of the penis to produce an erection. It is thought that excessive pressure on these arteries may cause tiny tears, which the body then repairs. In response to these tears, the healed arteries become thicker, allowing them to better resist further damage. These thicker arteries, though, aren’t able to respond as fast, or as completely, to demands for extra blood, so they become a sort of dam in the flow of blood to the erectile tissues of the penis.
One problem with this theory is that some studies seem to show that how long a patient has had high blood pressure is not as important for predicting the risk of erectile dysfunction as is the actual severity of the high blood pressure. In other words, someone who has had moderate hypertension for twenty years sometimes appears to be at lower risk for erectile dysfunction than a young man who has had very serious hypertension for only a few months. In light of this, other theories of how high blood pressure contributes to erectile dysfunction have been proposed.

Erectile Dysfunction And Diabetes
A new study sheds additional light on how erectile dysfunction (ED) interacts with diabetes. The study is another step in uncovering the link between the two disorders, and may lead to improved efficacy in treatments.
Sexual dysfunction is a well-recognized consequence of diabetes mellitus in men. Erectile dysfunction, retrograde ejaculation and the loss of seminal emission have all been described by such patients. This study examined induced penile erection, yawning and stretch in diabetic rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats treated with streptozotocin (STZ) to induce diabetes were used as they exhibit sexual and behavioral symptoms similar to those found in diabetic men with sexual dysfunction.

The ED Conversation Dilemma: Forty Percent Of Men With ED Don't Talk To Their Doctor, Survey Finds
A new survey reveals that while 82 percent of men with erectile dysfunction (ED) surveyed recognize it as an indicator of other health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes, nearly 40 percent have never discussed the condition with their doctors. The survey, conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs and sponsored by Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY), makers of Cialis® (tadalafil), was designed to further understand men's current beliefs about ED and ED treatment options, as well as the perceptions men have about communicating with their healthcare professional about ED.
"Sexual health is considered by many doctors as the window into a man's overall health -- for instance, erectile dysfunction can be an indicator of other health issues," said Ridwan Shabsigh, M.D., director of the Division of Urology at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY and professor of clinical urology at Columbia University. "It's important for men with ED to talk with their healthcare professional about ED and its treatment options. For instance, Cialis for once daily use is a new low-dose ED treatment option taken once a day and may be right for some men."
Perceived Barriers to the ED Conversation
According to the Ipsos survey results, discomfort discussing ED ranked as the number one barrier to good communication between a man and his doctor -- mentioned by 74 percent of men with ED who participated in the survey. The survey also found that, despite their discomfort, 64 percent of ED sufferers surveyed wished they knew more about ED and its treatments.
"Unfortunately, men tend not to talk about ED with their partner, their doctor or their friends," said Michael A. Perelman, Ph.D., co-director of the Human Sexuality Program at the Payne Whitney Clinic at NY Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City. "As a psychologist and sexual medicine specialist, I would encourage any man who thinks he might have ED to talk with a healthcare professional to learn about available treatment options."

Research on premature ejaculation
It is one of man's most common, underestimated sexual problems: Ejaculating earlier than desired. More common than erectile dysfunction, this condition can affect men at any point in their lives, and one in four men experience poor control over ejaculation on a frequent basis.
"Premature ejaculation is a frequent and distinct medical condition that can severely impact quality of life, affecting the physical and emotional well-being of patients and their partners," says James H. Barada, M.D.
The working group found that the term premature ejaculation was universally recognized and accurately understood by men with the condition and their partners, and concluded that changing the name may have the opposite effect, resulting in confusion and requiring extensive re-education. In the research study, which included 61 health care professionals, 75 men with premature ejaculation and 48 partners, other terms that also were occasionally used by physicians to describe the condition like "rapid ejaculation," were not as well understood by the study participants.

A Healthy Lifestyle Helps to Prevent Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) becomes a more common condition as men age. Experts evaluate that about half of men older than 40 years have at least modest problems in achieving and maintaining an erection. Taking into consideration the US male population, that means erectile dysfunction may affect about 18 million men.
Nobody knows yet exactly why ED happens but the consequences are very serious in some cases.
A research team conducted by a scientist working for the manufacturer of Viagra concluded that men had problems in maintaining a relationship had important troubles related to depression, anxiety and self-esteem. After 10 weeks of treating erectile dysfunction, members of trial group restored self-esteem and improved their depression and anxiety condition.
Of course erectile dysfunction treatment is beneficial for people in need and many trials have confirmed the life improvements. But more important is to try to prevent this uncomfortable situation.

Erectile Dysfunction And Diabetes
"Men with diabetes who are having trouble keeping an erection could be at increased risk of serious heart problems", BBC News reported. It said that a study has found that those with erectile dysfunction are twice as likely as other men with diabetes to develop heart disease. This finding could apparently be used to "alert both patients and healthcare providers to the future risk of coronary heart disease".
This study followed 2,306 diabetic men for four years and found that the men with erectile dysfunction were 1.58 times more likely to have a cardiac event (fatal or non-fatal heart attack or surgery for heart disease). It has some potential weaknesses, for example it might not have used the most accurate method for classifying erectile dysfunction, some of the participants may already have had heart disease before the study began, and other drugs they were taking could have had an effect.
Despite its shortcomings however, this research corroborates what other studies have suggested. It suggests that an assessment of erectile dysfunction could be useful when assessing the risk of heart disease in men with diabetes.
