So You're Not Getting Hard As Intensely As Usual

So You’re Not Getting Hard As Intensely As Usual

I came across a very interesting question from Pasquale, who began following my posts on AdviceForHim.com just recently, while checking out my inbox this morning and I’d like to share it with you.

Pasquale asks why he isn’t getting hard as intensely as usual these days. He speculates that his problem of not fully rising up to the occasion may be because of his age. Pasquale also adds that he will celebrate his 61st birthday in just a couple of weeks.

Let me kick things off by saying that age has nothing to do with weakening erections. Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think, you won’t begin to experience bouts of erectile dysfunction when you reach a certain age.

However, during my extensive research into the male sexuality, I learned two very significant factors that can easily prevent you from really getting rock hard like you used to no matter how old you may be.

But before I explain this more in detail, let me give you a quick rundown on what happens inside your body during sexual arousal to help you understand the whole thing better…

As soon as the brain detects that you and your lover are already heating things up in the bedroom, it immediately triggers the endocrine glands to start churning out feel-good hormones that set off key changes in your system to prepare you for lovemaking.

The most prominent of these changes include increased heart and breathing rates, extra sensitivity of the skin as well as a more than usual amount of blood directed to the pelvic region, where most of it is absorbed by the erectile tissues in the penis to firm it up.

Now we’ve got that covered, let’s move on to the two significant factors that I told you about earlier…

The first factor is the amount of stress that you experience each day. The more stressed out you feel, the slower the endocrine glands can produce and release feel-good hormones since they are more inclined to let loose stress hormones.

Besides making you feel more anxious and jittery instead of being hyped up for a lovemaking session, these stress hormones can also raise your chances of coming sooner than you’d like to if you do manage to sexually penetrate your partner.

The second factor is the prescribed medications that you are taking. Now while this may sound surprising, you can be at risk of not getting hard as intensely as usual if you regularly take antidepressants, hypertension drugs, cardiovascular medicines, painkillers and decongestants.

Not using these medications properly can also lead to the same problem, so make sure you consult your doctor first before using them.

(And now that you know that age doesn’t have anything to do with your erections, here are a few useful tips to make sure that you’ll get rock hard each time you and your lover are at it in bed.)
