Why Being Physically Inactive Can Make You Sexually Inactive

Why Being Physically Inactive Can Make You Sexually Inactive

Let’s start things off with a quick rundown on what happens inside your body when you get sexually aroused.

Unlike what a lot of men mistakenly think, getting ready for lovemaking isn’t something that occurs automatically whenever things get hot in the bedroom. It is actually the result of a process that gets set off by a hormonal reaction.

As it turns out, the brain stimulates the endocrine glands to produce and release specific hormones that cause a few significant changes in the body during sexual arousal.

Besides directing a more substantial amount of blood to the pelvic region to firm up the erectile tissues in the penis, these hormones also make the male reproductive organs and the areas around them more sensitive to stimulation.

Ideally, this is what happens during sexual arousal. However, things won’t go smoothly as they are supposed to if you have a sedentary lifestyle. Now while this may sound hard to believe, habitually spending your days physically inactive can easily weaken your sexual performance in the long run.

I’m not just talking about losing a considerable amount of your sexual stamina here. There is also a very big risk of not getting rock hard the next time you and your lover get frisky in bed.

Let me explain what I mean…

See, exercise plays a significant role in your sex life. To put it as simply as I can, not sweating it out regularly impairs the brain’s ability to stimulate the hormone-producing glands during sexual arousal.

Interestingly, one thing I’ve discovered while researching about the male sexuality is that the brain is highly suggestible. Depending on how you do it, you can either train your brain to help you become a better lover or perhaps the other way around.

When you make exercise a regular in your schedule, the brain is able to maintain its sharpness when it comes to reacting during sexual arousal. This means you won’t have a problem getting ready for lovemaking because it won’t be difficult to get a stable erection going and keep it long enough to satisfy your partner in bed.

On the other hand, constantly spending your day being a couch potato makes the brain rusty and impairs its ability to stimulate the endocrine glands. Besides not being able to get fully rock hard when things get hot in the bedroom, there is also a very big risk that you won’t get one at all.

So if you’re looking to keep your erections as strong as you can and stay a great lover, making regular exercise a priority is definitely a must.
