Men have their penis issues, and their erections and they find a way for sexual release when they need to; they have sex or masturbate. It’s as simple as ABC. That’s what you think. Just like your common myths and legends, your sexual health has its bizarre yet factual secrets, too. Some you may already know, some you may find surprising and some you wouldn’t even believe. But they’re true.

Years and years of studies have been conducted about the male body, sex organs and sexual health. Those studies have also come up with rather interesting results.

What you think is a simple skin, muscle and organ that gives you pleasure and gives your partner pleasure is actually just as fascinating as the human brain.

Yes, your sexual health is not as simple as you think. Being part of your body and still a part of your overall health, you should know this information.

Not only will it make you more knowledgeable about your body, it will also make you aware of certain things about your sexuality that you may find handy in the future. So, here are 10 facts that you probably didn’t know about your sexual health that may surprise you:

1. Menopause Is Not Just For Women

womenMost people think only women deal with “the change,” but men can, too. It’s specifically known as “andropause.”

Men don’t go through hot flashes or stop menstruating, of course, but men will experience a decrease in the production of male hormones sometime in their 40’s or later.

Their symptoms will vary, but they may include fatigue, low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, weight gain or irritability, while some will not show symptoms at all.

With aging, whether male or female, comes the diminishing of production of hormones, like estrogen, progesterone and testosterone – and more. There are ways to slow its effects, such as testosterone therapy, but this method has proven to have possible serious side effects to your health, so close monitoring of your health is important.

The undeniable fact is that aging will come and there will be a certain descent of some body functions. But it does not mean you can no longer be the sex god that you used to be, though. You can hang on to your youthful vigor, but it will take some effort on your part. Lifestyle can have an impact on health over time, so maintaining healthy habits is the surefire way to go.

2. Vasectomy Is Not Forever

surgeryContrary to what most people think, vasectomy is actually reversible.

The process of vasectomy is a surgical sterilization where the surgeon cuts the vas deferens off, preventing the excretion of sperm– although you will still be able to ejaculate semen.

The production of sperm will continue despite going through vasectomy, too.If you had a vasectomy less than 10 years ago, there is a 95 percent possibility that you can still have the tubes attached back again through surgery. Surgeries for reversing a vasectomy includes a microscopic and intricate process that costs a large sum of money.

3. Orgasm Is Different From Ejaculation

You have probably been under the impression that ejaculation and orgasm are the same things and they happen at the same time. Actually, they are not and it may even happen separately.

Ejaculation is the secretion of semen and sperm through your penis. It’s the part where your penis excretes the whitish fluid originally known to you as your orgasm. But in reality, orgasm is a different thing altogether.

Orgasm is muscle spasm that sends the feeling of pleasure to your brain. It is the intense pleasure that you get which may commonly be accompanied with ejaculation or it may not. Ejaculation can happen before the orgasm, hence the term premature ejaculation.

4. There’s A 60 Percent Chance Of Premature Ejaculation

Premature ejaculation is a common condition for men. You can ejaculate semen and sperm prior to orgasm without even noticing it, and you may not even have to secrete all that semen during the premature ejaculation.

You have to know that there is a 60 percent possibility that you may ejaculate during sex while you are still inside her, therefore sending your sperm in the quest to reach her reproductive organs.

This is the cause of early and unwanted pregnancies. So, it is best to use contraceptives and condoms when having sex to prevent pregnancy, especially if it is not planned and to protect yourself from diseases, as well. That is if you would not want to be a daddy too soon.

5. Men Have Shorter Orgasms Compared To Women.

 women can have longer orgasmsThis may be a little disappointing for men, but studies show that women can have longer orgasms compared the length of time that men experiences them.The difference may only be a few seconds, but it is still a big difference for both sexes.

Orgasm is the spasm of the sex muscles, the contraction sending waves of pleasure to the brain, making it an intense feeling of relaxation and pleasure.

According to recent studies, it was shown that women have longer muscle contractions during orgasm compared to men. But being that it is mainly due to the contractions of the muscles, orgasm and the length of time that you experience it may be something that you can control.

You may have to go through some Kegel exercises or such to develop your pectoral muscles, but the additional time to the orgasm is going to be worth it.

6. Men Can Have Multiple Orgasms

The average man can have another orgasm approximately an hour after the first one. If you are in a sex session with your partner, an hour may be a little longer than how you want it.

The art of multiple orgasms has been studied for thousands of years. It takes practice, patience and a good set of techniques to achieve the ability to have multiple orgasms.

Relaxation and knowing your body and your sexual organs is the key to achieving that phase. Yoga and relaxation can help you control your orgasm while a healthy body will make you active and ready to go any time, including another go at sex.

7. Your Physical Health Affects Your Sexual Health

Your physical health and your sexual health are interrelated with each other. Of course they are – your sex is still a part of your overall being.

That means your physique and energy affects your sexual performance, your stamina, your endurance and the health of your sperm.

If your body is unhealthy, certain areas in your sex life may also be affected. To name a few, you could experience things like premature ejaculation, unhealthy sperm leading to impotency, fatigue and a lack of interest in sex. You can also have low energy and poor endurance. Staying healthy can be beneficial to your overall being and can affect your sexual health greatly.

8. Oral Sex Can Make Your Manhood Bigger

Gentlemen, you’re in for a treat. If you want your penis to grow bigger – or if your lady wants it, too – you can ask her to give you a regular dose of oral sex. Studies show that regular oral sex can make your penis bigger.

In the study that was done, men measured their size before and during oral sex as compared to the conventional sex and using their hands. The men who had oral sex have surprisingly bigger erections compared to not having oral sex.

This is just great news for every guy out there.

9. Your Nipples Are As Sensitive As Hers

Ever wonder how she feels when you play with her nipples? Well, you can actually feel the same thing if you play – or she does – with your nipples, as well.

Your nipples are just as sensitive as your lady’s are. The sensitivity of the nipples heighten during a sexual time, hormones are produced, making them hard and sensitive to touch.

A slight touch can send waves of pleasure for your woman. The good news is that it is the same thing for you. So, playing with her nipples can be done by both parties.

10. Men Have A G-spot, too.

The world of sex is not unfair after all. Not only women have their G-spot – which is sometimes hard to find, by the way. You have your G-spot, too.It is a certain area commonly known as your prostate. Your prostate becomes sensitive during sex and touching it can send waves of pleasure for you.

prostateThe prostate can be as sensitive as just a simple touch of the skin during sex. It stimulates the pleasure and sensation which can lead to a faster and more intense orgasm, exactly how the G-spot does it for women.

Your sexual health is not as easy and simple as you may have come to know. There are limits, differences and reasons why your sex life and your penis performance is the way it is.

Your sexual health is just as important as your overall health and therefore, you should know every curve and corner about it. Not only will it make you aware, it will also give you a choice to live healthier.
