There are various sexual health concerns that affect a huge number of people and that can cause serious negative effects on people’s lives. The two most common sexual health problems for men are erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Sadly, too many men who suffer from these issues are too ashamed to talk about it and so they never get help. There is a really great solution that men can do on their own at home and that has great effects. This solution is kegel exercises, and they have been proven to help men get an erection and last longer by delaying ejaculation. To help all the men who suffer from these two issues, this article will explain why men are using kegel exercises to address these concerns.
What are Kegel Exercises Used For?
Kegel exercises are used to increase men’s sexual stamina, promote healthy erections, and delay male ejaculation. Many of us have heard of women doing kegel exercises, but it is a little less-known in men. There are many resources online that explain the benefits of kegel exercises for men. As you can see in this guide here which demonstrates and explains some of the exercises that men can do, as well as the benefits that they provide. Kegel exercises are one of the best ways to improve a man’s sexual performance. This is very important because erectile dysfunction will affect many men at some point in their lives, whilst one in three men are thought to have an issue with premature ejaculation. Essentially, by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, a man has better control over his erections, performance, and ejaculation.
Why Do Men Have Sexual Performance Issues?
There are various reasons why men have erectile dysfunction issues and problems with premature ejaculation. The first set of factors is physical. As we age, our natural testosterone levels drop and this can cause both issues with erections and with ejaculation. Poor health or a bad lifestyle like excess smoking, drinking, and drug-taking can also lead to issues. There can also be psychological factors that cause sexual problems for men. If a man has had a bad sexual experience in his past it can lead to some trauma that affects his later sexual performance. Similarly, low self-esteem or high levels of stress and anxiety can cause these same problems. Whatever the cause, sexual performance issues can have serious negative effects on a man’s life. They can cause feelings of inadequacy, shame, depression, and cause men to withdraw and not seek out relationships. When in a relationship, sexual performance issues can cause a lot of tension because neither the man nor his partner will be fully satisfied and this can cause both self-pity and resentment.
Because so few men want to talk about the problem, it ends up getting worse. The mental anguish of it can perpetuate it further and cause such performance anxiety that it is really difficult to overcome. Whilst it is always good to understand the root causes of sexual performance issues, it is not totally necessary in order to find a solution. It is very important to note that all men will most likely experience some sexual performance issues sometime in their lives due to stress or tiredness. This is very common and is not something that needs to be worried about. It is, however, very different from regular or chronic dysfunction, which are extremely debilitating and which need an effective solution.
How Do You Do Kegel Exercises?
Kegel exercises strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and if you don’t know what these are, next time you are urinating, stop the flow without using your hands. The muscles that you engage to do this are your pelvic floor muscles, and it is these that we target when we do kegel exercises. In order to get the best results, it is very important that you practice kegel exercises regularly, every day if possible. The first muscles that you need to strengthen are the muscles that wrap around and sit next to the base of your penis and the muscles that encircle your anus. When the muscles contract near the base of your penis they increase the rigidity or stiffness of your penis and help you get and maintain an erection. This is hugely beneficial for men who suffer from chronic erectile dysfunction.
There are many online guides that will tell you exactly how to perform the relevant exercise, but essentially, when you tighten the muscles in and around the base of your penis, you stop the blood flowing out of it so it stays rigid. You may also need to do some endurance training to keep your muscles working during sexual activity to maintain an erection. Endurance training involves you holding your kegel exercises for longer, but with less intensity. These exercises will also give you far greater control over when you ejaculate, so if you have problems with premature ejaculation, kegel exercises will help you overcome them.
By strengthening your pelvic floor muscles regularly, not only will you increase your sexual stamina, but you will also become more attuned to these muscles, and so you will be able to feel when you are close to ejaculating. This will enable you to slow down or stop until your level of arousal has decreased which will delay your climax. Once you have reset your arousal levels, you can start again because you won’t have ejaculated and you will have sustained your erection.
Sexual performance issues are so common and yet far too many men are suffering in silence. Unfortunately, until the taboo is successfully removed, men will continue to stay quiet about their problems and not reach out for help. Fortunately, kegel exercises are a highly effective method for discreetly overcoming these problems on your own at home. Read this article and search online for how to do the exercises correctly, and it could have some enormous benefits for your sex life. It is amazing how many facets of our lives can be affected by sexual problems, and you will find that once you have these issues under control, your self-esteem, mood and overall happiness will improve dramatically.
