    My erection's lately haven't been as hard as I would like ideally, I'm only 22 and attribute it to my weight and poor health. I'm 6'2 and about 225 pounds right now, I do run everyday for my job and am in the process of getting in better shape. My mom and I are living together right now and have seriously talked about becoming vegetarians together, she wants to because she is a Buddhist and for the health reasons...I'm primarily interested purely for the health reasons.

    I was wondering if its reasonable to expect a better quality erection after some time on a vegetarian diet? I assume I'll have lost more weight and be in better overall shape, better blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. I always hear that people feel much healthier after being on a vegetarian diet, how has it affected the sex lives of any of our past or present vegetarians?

    Have to say you look very tasty. If you haven't had your blood pressure taken i'd do so and also cholesterol can play a part. If you smoke - stop because that definately can affect blood flow. Remember as silly as it may seem us bigger guys need more blood to pump it up.

    I've never smoked once in my life, both of my parents did and I hated it so much I thankfully never had any interest. Also I'm a little above 6, definitely not as much blood flowing in and out as many other members here. I can actually get as hard as I like but without constant stimulation the blood exits quicker than I want it to, I was told by a few people that more cardio can help with that. I guess in a couple of months I can look back and see if its improved with a healthier diet, weight loss and more exercise.

    I'm not 100% veggie, but after I cut out red meat and started eating vegetarian to compensate (nuts, beans, lentils etc) my health got a lot better. I was dating a vegan and his hard-on was like a 10 on the Mohs scale. Whether or not there's a direct correlation the increase in good calories, decrease in fat and increase in exercise gave me a lot more energy to devote to my erection.

    Cut out the red meat and exercise. Seriously exercise is a natural viagra. Almonds are really good for you (plain ones). Running isn't enough usually. It's a good leg work out but I think cardio would work better for you.

    Go vegan; it'll improve your health profile by over 200 %; also retards aging; as for the erections, probably psychological --- think sex throughout the day... if that doesn't do it, do squats and leg presses ... After working out evenings, after doing squats& the leg presses, I always have trouble getting dressed the next morning because that certain something won't retreat ...

    I've been into no poultry, no meat for 30 years. It's important to eat healthy foods, sure, but it's even more important to do intense cardio workouts. I'm 56, into cycling, still get rock hard, and have great orgasms. Fitness will keep your dick working beautifully. Eating well will fuel your workouts. They go hand in hand.

    Hey dude,

    I'm a vegetarian and I have really good erections. In fact I almost always cum two or three times when I have sex - and often when jerking-off - and I never lose my erection. It's also a very good quality. In fact I just finished having sex (twice) and could go again if I wanted to.

    I'm not sure exactly how much that has to do with the vegetarian diet though. It would definitely makes sense that it would improve my blood flow, and thus help with the erection, but I had never really thought about it until now. I know that sexually speaking, I was like this when I was in my teens as well (and not a vegetarian)....although who isn't like that in their teens? :tongue:


    If you do lose weight you'll probably find that your package looks longer too :wink:

    Anyway, yes, I definitely recommend a vegetarian diet and plenty of exercise as a way of increasing your health and probably your erections. Just make sure that you get enough protein! There's a specific formula to determine how many grams of protein per day you need, unfortunately I can't remember it. I know it's based on your weight though. I need about 50 grams, and I'm about 5'10'' and 155lbs....I would estimate you need about 80 or 90, but I'm ball-parking.

    Also, EAT YOUR FIBER! Lack of fiber is reaching epidemic proportions in the USA! The RDA for Adults (regardless of age, gender, weight, height, etc.) is 25-30 grams. Eating plenty of fiber will help you lose weight, you'll feel fuller longer, it lends itself to good blood sugar levels, and may reduce the risk of cancer. (it'll also make you 'regular').

    So yeah, exercise, go veggie, get plenty of protein, and watch your fiber!

    Good Luck!

    Most men would do anything for a good stalk.

    Caffeine can also affect your erections so if your a heavy coffee drinker you may want to think about cutting back a bit.

    Just do it (or at least try it heh). Go veg. It's really great!!!! I've been vegetarian for almost 4 years now, best thing I've ever done for myself, hands down, period, the end.

    Hard ons are another matter, I've always had a magic stick so I can't directly attribute vegetarianism to any real improvement in boner quality, BUT, I am 36 years old and I'm still solid like a rock :biggrin1:

    Vegetarianism works for some, but not all. While it is a good idea to incorporate a good deal of raw vegetables into one's diet, various meat products and eggs are also beneficial for health.

    A vegetarian diet does not necessarily equal a healthy diet. I would argue that it is more important to limit overall calorie intake and lessen the ingestion of processed foods.

    animal fats in the bloodstream interfere with the blood-brain barrier transport; non-vegetarians also suffer from hormone distortions, eg. DHEA levels in vegetarians remain at the teenage levels well past their twenties, whereas meat eaters suffer a serious drop in their late teens, etc, etc
