Are You A Candidate For Erectile Dysfunction?

Are You A Candidate For Erectile Dysfunction?

Have you ever thought about the question “are you at risk of getting erectile dysfunction?”

If you have, then this article should help you to figure out the answer.

To start with, let’s have a quick rundown of how erections happen to really understand why some men tend to suffer from the dreaded softie syndrome quite unexpectedly.

At its simplest, an erection is the end result of a process that begins in the brain. When a guy gets sexually aroused, certain receptors in the brain are activated, which release hormones that increase the flow of blood channelled to the penile region.

The spongy erectile tissues in the penis absorb the blood directed to them, which in turn makes them stiffen up. If maintained for a prolonged period of time, the penis is now ready for sexual intercourse and a man can achieve orgasm if it is stimulated.

However, there are key factors that significantly affect how fast a guy can get and how long a guy can keep an erection. These include diet, frequency of exercise, overall fitness and certain health conditions that can interfere with the flow of blood in the body like hypertension and high cholesterol levels.

Interestingly, I also learned one other very crucial factor that can easily ruin a man’s ability to get rock hard on demand during my extensive research into female psychology…

And this factor is smoking.

See, the main active ingredient in cigarette smoke is nicotine. Now while it does have some calming properties when absorbed by the bloodstream, it’s the only good thing you get when you habitually expose your system to nicotine when you are a chronic smoker. Everything else is harmful to your body, especially to your ability to get a stable erection.

Let me explain what I mean…

Nicotine pinches veins and arteries that channel blood throughout the body. Besides making it really hard for blood to pass through them, it also prevents the flow of essential nutrients and oxygen that cells and tissues need to rejuvenate themselves.

This means you won’t just have a difficult time getting hard when things get hot in the bedroom, but you’ll also be exposing yourself to a lot of potential health problems in the long run.

So if you’re looking to get a stable erection each and every time you and your lover get frisky, make it a point to kick your smoking habit or else suffer from the dreaded softie syndrome when you least expect it.

(And here’s why you should take oral health seriously.)
