10 Tips How to Manage Your Sexual Performance Better
- Reduce stress.
It’s not a secret that stress is a killer of desire and also contributes to occasional sexual failures even in young and healthy men. And if you are over 40, you should think about how to manage your life in a more relaxing and less stressful way. Business is a great game but very demanding and you need to plan not only your work but also your rest.
- Regular sex.
Don’t have gaps in your sexual life. The frequency is not a point, but it is better having intercourse at least once a week than enjoy a short period of crazy sex and, then, have no intimacy for a few months. According to our experts, 3-4 times a week is an optimal frequency for healthy sexual life. But don’t overdo, as it can lead to a lack of desire.
An active style of life improves both your desire and performance. It is better to play sports that involve active movements of the pelvic floor muscles. Skiing or skating is the best, especially if you practice them together with your partner, which create some intimacy.
Another advice: be aware of weight gaining. If your tummy starts increasing dramatically, it may be not only about your diet but a sign of low testosterone levels.
- Do Kegels.
There is also a special technique to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles known as Kegel exercises. In short, it is a contraction and relaxing your pelvic floor muscles. Kegels can be done any time and in any position without interrupting your daily activities.
- Alternative body practices.
Such body practices as yoga, acupuncture or massage can improve your sexual performance as well. They can tone and relax your body and reduce stress already mentioned as an enemy of sexuality.
- Improve your diet.
First of all, make sure that you have enough proteins: low-fat meats, eggs or beans.
Add into your daily ration some food boosting testosterone levels: fresh vegetables and fruits, nuts, whole grains, garlic, and olive oil.
Seafood is considered as a good aphrodisiac. Feel free to add some oysters and mussels to your diet and don’t forget to finish them with lemon juice!
And here is an example of a good booster that you can eat shortly before sex: some ground walnuts mixed with honey can raise your energy very quickly and, if taken regularly, improve your performance.
- Quit smoking and reduce alcohol consumptions.
Smoking negatively affects your vascular system, including the vessels in the genital area, so it is better to give up this bad habit. As to alcohol, it is important what, when and how much you use it. A glass of red wine before sex cannot harm your sexual function, but it’s a well-known fact is that heavily drinking man hardly can be a good lover. So, 5 whiskeys is not a good option to impress your partner. Probably, she will be impressed in an unfavorable way.
- Wear loose clothes.
Be careful with skinny jeans. If you have clothes that are very tight in the groin area, it can cause overheating of testicles and worsen your blood circulation.
- Use Foreplay.
Using foreplay is a good practice to please your partner, but it is also good for you if you are already quitting the age when you are inflamed by a single thought about a woman. Letting your mate take the lead is also a good way to make your more sexually aroused.
- See your doctor before it’s too bad.
If your problem is persistent and not going away, especially, when it comes to the loss of erection, it is better to consult a doctor who may not only give you good advice but also prescribe some ED medicine.
