Buzzer: What things can you do to make sure your penis gets as much blood to it as possible?
No doubt, you'll probably get a number of good responses from others here. I'll lead off.
Staying in good shape physically and eating sensibly sound like simple ideas but they are important of course.
Making sure you get (regular) good cardio-vascular exercise and avoiding fatty foods (which clog the arteries) makes sense.
If you are having "good-quality" firm erections regularly (preferably several each day) this would indicate your penile circulation is adequate. Even awakening with an erection each morning or so is an encouraging sign that you have nothing to worry about.
Noticing your exceptional stats, I was wondering if you might be experiencing some-less-than desired performance in erection strength which prompted your question (?). Lots of men in that size catagory report problems, especially as they get older. It happens.
If you are noticing some deficiency you may want to try adding a few nutritional supplements to your diet which would encourage better circulation to the genitals as well as promote overall improved male health--particularly prostate health. It is a delicate balance that men require to keep things working in top order. Check health food stores; even the net under men's health and nutrition and READ THOSE LABELS before purchasing. Start (and try to stay) with only the BASIC supplements for men's health first.--See how they work, but only if you really NEED to try them.
Yohimbe, Ginko Biloba, Tribulus, L-Arginine,Saw Palmetto, Muira Puama, Horny Goat Weed, and Trichilia Catigua Bark are among those you'll read about. And, you need not think of taking them all! --These are just among the most common and currently popular. Many of these nutrients are available as "combinations" under men's health capsule products taken once or twice daily. I have taken many of these nutritients for two years now (at LESS than suggested doses to be on the safe side) and have gotten favorable results.)
Jelq exercises are beneficial (once each week) to help stimulate and encourage improved circulation to the penis. (Jelq is not merely used for enlargement!)
Go to the net and research basic jelq techniques.
(Very simple to learn really...require MINIMAL time for the purpose you would be doing them!) In fact, many men would benefit from routine "maintenance" jelqing in simple weekly routine fashion. Ten minutes would do it.
Someone here could no doubt mention Viagra as a stimulant to improve circulation/erection quality. It certainly is an effective drug. Using it immediately without trying other means first seems premature and not prudent really. No need to "abuse" Viagra too early in life or develop a dependancy upon it for super erections.
If you are having more than just occasional problems, you may want to be examined. Sometimes simple "breakdowns" occur in the circulatory system whereby blood flow is reduced or blocked from its regular course which would affect erections. These breakdowns could occur within the genital area itself --or not (i.e. abdomen area) which would impede blood flow to the penis. That would be the rare, more serious scenario however...but certainly fixable.
'Hope this helps.
Buzzer: Well, sometimes, I don't have that erection of steel I'd like. I get good erections, and plenty of them, but... sometimes, I'll miss out on a quarter inch of length or so because I'm not steel hard.
What you describe happens to alot of us. It's been brought up from time to time in a couple of threads.
For what it's worth, my erection is "off" by a much as 1/2" or so sometimes.....I don't hit maximum size every single erection. Mentally, it is nice to know that size is possible!
Also, the hardness comes and goes to some extent as well through one of "my sessions" if you will.
For one thing, it takes me at least a minute (or minute and half to two minutes) to build to full erection length overall....Pretty much "spongy-hard" by that point. Then, rock hard quality sets in and then that subsides a bit (back to spongy hard) but then builds again "big-time" just before climax. MY glans size varies abit as well but ultimately hits its largest size just before the grand finale.
You and I are close in size and afterall, we are talking about a great volume of blood required here overall!
You probably don't have anything to worry about.
If I were you, I would try the jelq technique to condition and encourage maximum circulation...once a week.
See how that goes. You probably don't require supps or anything else just now.
You have not responded in particular as to what might be the nature of conditions that might be causing your "softer" erections. Are you under any kind of stress? Is this a condition that has been appearing gradually over time? Do you smoke or drink alcohol regularly (or do other "recreational substances")? How often does this happen?
Your age is only 25 and although larger guys tend to experience this more often and at an earlier age, you are kinda young for you to have noticed this change in your erection performance enough to post here. So, apparently this has reached a point to where it is causing you some concern.
However, without some details, I really can''t give you any specific help. The information provided by benderten2001 although good in the general sense, might not be specific enough for you to select the remedy(s) that will solve your problem if you are not familiar with these different solutions.
I dont believe a once a week jelq will do much to SOLVE an erection problem due to poor circulation. A "regular" program in my experience is needed to correct the problem, THEN when the desired results are achieved, a maintenance program of maybe twice week for a few minutes can be employed to preserve the results. The jelq regimens found on the net are overwhelmingly designed for enlargement. The jelq programs for erection improvement and maintenance are different, since most of the larger guys don't want to get any bigger.
Just as another guy more or less in your size range to add a little to what benderten and jimbo have already said:
I notice that if I am training pretty regularly at the gym, say at least twice a week; if I am sleeping well; eating reasonably balanced food; and not stressed ... (hard to achieve all these at any one time I know!) ... my erections are harder, more frequent -- still to the point of embarrassment, even in a guy in his 50s -- and bigger that my standard size. I have never regularly used any supplement, and have never stuck with jelq in a disciplined way.
My experience has always been that a big guy's erections vary a lot in strength and size. It was so for me right from the start.
As usual, you always come through with great info!
You have made good points as to the "variance" in ages represented and the matters of the stress factor.
I tried to point out in my comments that jelqing in this particular case should be kept simple and to a minimum...it's not for enlargement purposes.
I believe our member Buzzer should be on to getting some good help here!
Buzzer: I think I've given the wrong impression here.
I don't have a problem. I have very good hard erections, and I get them on a regular basis. I just notice I never get the "so hard it hurts" erections now and then. But, I did't masturbate then as much as I do now, so maybe that has something to do with it.
Actually frequent masturbation could very well be the main reason. I for one am more "horny" if i wait longer between sexual sessions whether intercourse and/or masturbation. It has something to do with what is called the "refractory" period where the male body needs time to "recharge". At your age, this time is generally much shorter than a man of say 50.
After you recharge then the urge to "release" builds up an increasing sense of urgency and corresponding desire, which manifests in stronger erections. Depending on your natural sex drive and your mastubation frequency, you are not allowing that urge to build up the same sense of "urgency" and therefore erection intensity that you would have if you mastubated LESS often.
Really? I find the opposite to be true in my case. That is, if I have masturbated or had sex recently, I am MORE likely to want to do it again, usually within a few hours, while if I don't have sex for a while, the urge gradually diminishes with time. Up until about 10 days or so, then of course it becomes quite urgent... but during that time the desire to have sex, or play with it can be suppressed by me being busy with work, social stuff, stress, etc.
I should add, I'm 30 now, and I know what Buzzer means - my erections are good and hard, but not the steel-hard I used to occasionally get up until a couple of years ago. And back then I used to masturbate up to three times a day when I had time. Oh, those were the days... now, the more stressed I am, the less I masturbate.
Buzzer: I get steel erections when I wake up, actually - but that goes away when I piss.
I just miss the old "ow, god damn this boner hurts". It'd probably come back if I didn't masturbate four times a day.

By this point of things in how this thread has gone, you probably wonder why you even brought this subject up!
I'm glad you did. And, you have been a good sport about it all.
And, some good information has been exchanged.
If it's any consolation to you regarding your "four times a day" you may be one of those men who need more frequent releases to handle the building "pressures of manhood" so to speak. Personally, I can't go longer than about 24 hours before I start having not only the urge to shoot but other symptoms that tell me that adjustments have to be made and soon...testicular achiness, irritability, frequent (sometimes annoying, ill-timed) erections and the like. And, I've been that way all my adult life BEFORE taking supplements (so don't blame those for my situation!)
--We have to make allowances for the individual men that we are. We all have our own "systems" which we learn to live with. As we get older, things do change (particularly for the larger among us) and we just accept them and try not to worry. If anything, it's reassuring that when we notice these changes, we're not by ourselves. Other men notice them, too. They just don't talk about them...(or, have anyone to talk about them with). That's the advantage of being here with us.
