Sexual Health

Lifestyle Changes Can Improve Sexual Health

Lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, exercising more, and eating healthier foods, are sometimes recommended for people with sexual problems. But how much of an effect do these changes have? Scientists considered this issue in a recent study by the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

In particular, they looked at how six lifestyle factors – smoking, alcohol use, physical activity, diet, caffeine consumption and cannabis use – affected three sexual health outcomes – female sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation.

The female sexual dysfunction includes a wide range of sexual problems such as vaginal dryness, low desire and interest or pain during intercourse. It is estimated that 41% of pre-menopausal women worldwide have some degree of sexual dysfunction.

The researchers reviewed 89 medical studies related to lifestyle and sexual problems. Overall, the studies included almost 350,000 people worldwide. On average, participants were about 49 years old.

For women, physical activity was linked to a lower risk of sexual dysfunction. Following a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables seemed to help as well. But the researchers found no link between smoking, alcohol use and caffeine intake with women’s sexual health.

Men who smoked were more likely to have erectile dysfunction (ED). Heavier smokers tend to have more severe cases of erectile dysfunction. There was also an association with physical activity. Erectile dysfunction was more common in men who exercise less. Moderate alcohol consumption (an average of 8 drinks per week) was associated with a lower risk of ED, but high consumption (an average of 23 drinks per week) was not. Following a healthy diet seemed to be good for erections.

Changing lifestyle habits can improve overall health, which can have sexual benefits. For example, low testosterone and obesity can interfere with sexual function. But physical activity can increase testosterone levels and help people lose weight. Likewise, diabetes is associated with sexual problems, such as erectile dysfunction, in men and poor lubrication in women. But physical activity can lessen the effects of diabetes and, in turn, the sexual impact.

The authors noted that the effects on sexual health of diet, caffeine and cannabis were not as widely studied as other lifestyle factors, so their conclusions were “less robust”.

They added that there were fewer studies related to women’s sexual health and premature ejaculation and recommended additional studies in these areas.

Secrets For More Satisfying Sex

3 Secrets For More Satisfying Sex

These sex secrets do not require special techniques or potions ordered via email, they are mostly simple things you can try at home.

Take care of yourself

Maintaining your body in excellent condition will allow you to enjoy more satisfying sex life. Here are some easy steps to help you get there.

  • Get some exercise. It improves resistance and facilitates blood circulation (necessary for an effective erection). In addition, you will appear fit and more muscular!
  • Eat healthy. Healthy food will help you maintain your weight and also provide you with the fuel you need for daily activities, including sex.
  • Quit smoking. You will improve your health and you will have fresh breath.
  • Seek help to resolve your health problems. If you have sexual health problems, such as low libido, erectile dysfunction, or premature ejaculation, see your sexologist in Delhi. These disorders can be treated. Discovering and treating other health problems, such as sexually transmitted infections (also known as sexually transmitted diseases), nervousness, or blood vessel problems, can also improve your sex life.
  • Take your medication as recommended.

Communicate with your partner

Communication is the key to fulfilling sexuality:

  • Speak. Even if talking about sex makes you uncomfortable at first, it’s worth it.
  • Be honest. If you don’t like something your partner is doing to you, if you’re not comfortable with what’s going on, let them know.
  • Focus on the positive. If your partner is doing something you love, tell them.
  • If you are shy, use non-verbal cues. By moving and making sounds, you can let your partner know how you are feeling without saying a word.
  • Tell your partner what you like in bed and, conversely, find out what they like.
  • Don’t hide an STD. If you have a sexually transmitted infection (also known as a sexually transmitted disease), let your partners know so that they can protect themselves.
  • Do not hide sexual problems. If you are struggling with a sexual problem, be it low libido, erectile dysfunction, or premature ejaculation, talk to your partner. She will understand that she is not responsible for it and you will give her the opportunity to help you.

Good communication will possibly take your sex life and your romantic relationship to new heights.

Shake it baby!

Sex life should be enjoyable! Strangely enough, it’s easy to forget it. Find pleasure in doing some small experiments.

  • Exchange your fantasies. Find out what your partner would like to try in bed, and let them know your own wishes.
  • Add to the wardrobe. Buy your partner’s new underwear or sexy sleepwear.
  • Vary the decor. Try making love in a new, unusual place.
  • Fix a moment. No time to make love? Put it on your calendar. Make an appointment for sex or plan a sexy getaway. Sex doesn’t have to be spontaneous to be good.
  • Dream. Take a few moments during the day to think about sex, it keeps the engine going.
