better sex starts here

When you’re having sex, we’re pretty sure you’re not thinking about porridge. (If you are, please keep it to yourself.) Your cholesterol numbers are the furthest things from your mind. You’re probably not consumed with thoughts of how single-leg stability-ball jackknives or squat thrusts might improve your performance. And we’d bet you’re not pondering the chemical and psychological mysteries of her libido at. This. Very. Moment. One of the many very nice things about sex is that you don’t have to do a lot of thinking. But with sex, as with anything you wish to be skilled at and enjoy more, a little additional knowledge – authoritative, intensely researched, cutting-edge knowledge – can make the difference between “good” and “great”. You probably picked up this book because you are familiar with the…

giddy up again… and again

How to have a round two, three or more: 1. Don’t masturbate for several days. The more you ejaculate, the longer your refractory periods (the time it takes you to be able to be stimulated again) will be. 2. Skip the post-romp smoke. Nicotine kills erections. 3. Trade post-sex massages. Releasing muscle tension eases anxiety, a factor in subsequent erections. 4. Have a sip of wine. Alcohol in low doses increases the arousal signals from your brain to your penile tissue. 5. Stand up and move around. Improving blood circulation will help. 6. Change the stimuli. Move into another room, watch an erotic movie, whip out a sex toy or try a sexy new position.…

10 ways having more sex can improve your health

SEX MAY PROTECT YOUR HEART. A study in the American Journal of Cardiology suggests that men who have sex twice a week have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than men who have less frequent sex. And this was true even after researchers adjusted for erectile dysfunction. Analysing the health records of 1 165 men who were monitored for 16 years as part of the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, epidemiologists at the New England Research Institutes found that men who had sexual activity once a month or less were at a 50 percent greater risk of cardiovascular disease than the men who had sex more than once a week.“Our research found that a low frequency of sexual activity predicted new cardiovascular events,” says Dr Susan Hall. Hall says a number…

THE PARTS We’ll pass over the penis for the moment and skip to the undercarriage, the twin testicles (or testes), where your genital tract begins. Each testicle contains millionsoftinyangel-hairspaghettiliketubesthataretightlycompressed in a strong casing. Each is a little bigger than a ping-pong ball, a little smaller than a hard-boiled egg. (Get to know how healthy testes should feel by learning the testicular cancer self-test on page 28.) Your testicles hang beneath the big guy in a gnarly hacky-sack called the scrotum. They swing there away from the body for good reason: to keep cool. Optimal sperm production requires testes…

buy a wider bike seat

Bicycling is great cardio exercise, but it has a downside. When a rider rests his weight on the narrow protruding nose of a bicycle saddle, the nerves and arteries can be compressed against the pelvic bone, compromising blood flow to the genitals and causing numbness and tingling in the penis, according to Dr Irwin Goldstein, founding editor of the Journal of Sexual Medicine. A study of 1 700 men in their 40s to 70s, which included recreational cyclists, exercisers on stationary bikes and serious cyclists, demonstrated a correlation between cycling at least three hours per week and long-term damage. If you’re a cyclist, you can reduce your risk by replacing your narrow saddle with a wider seat that transfers pressure onto your “sit bones” and muscle of the buttocks. In…

the angle of the dangle

The erect penis at age… 135 to 120 degrees. Everything is hunky-dory. 120 to 100 degrees. Watching your partner undress may not trigger as firm an erection as it once did. You may need foreplay just as she does. Refractory period starts to increase. 100 to 80 degrees Nerves in the penis begin to lose sensitivity. It may take some men longer to ejaculate. 80 to 90 degrees. Slower arterial flow of blood to the penis affects erection strength. Volume and velocity of the ejaculate decreases. Your refractory period may last three days.…
