    I think it might be useful to post your ideas on keeping your playmate healthy and always ready for action.

    I have always enjoyed plenty of activity, intercourse and self pleasuring. A good many years ago I was starting to have difficulty with getting an erection. To make a long story short, I quit smoking cold turkey, with the goal of restoring my youthful vigor and I also had a complete physical and found out that my colestrol was higher than it should be. Not dangerous, but elevated. Having used collestrol drugs for several years now and I can certainly state that my erections are very adequate and I feel much better about myself.

    I would encourage others to report their stores here for the benefit of others visiting this site. I enjoy LPSG and also have learned a lot from this site.

    Hippie: I don't smoke and gave up booze 5 years ago and am 55ys old. I've never had a problem with my penis, it seems always ready for action. Even in the bad old days when I was constantly drunk, it still seemed to work. However, I suppose I have always been blessed with a positive and optimistic outlook, and despite those schoolyard jibes about size and sexual prowess or its lack in which we all indulged, I have a very comfortable attitude toward my dick.

    I recently spent some time with a mate with whom I was at school. I always knew he was gay, although he only recently admitted it to himself properly. We had a masturbation session and it seems that he has difficulty maintaining an erection and achieving an orgasm. He said that this has been the case for many years. I can only think that it is his life-long repression of his sexuality that makes sex a difficulty for him. He really is convinced that he is inadequate, and no amount of encouragement is able to shake him out of this self oppression.

    It seems to me that if you feel good about yourself (give up smoking by all means, that'll make you feel good all round) that positive attitude will affect all areas of your life, including the sexual. Feel good, stay healthy, think positive and most of all engage optimistically with others and you'll be fine. Convince yourself that you are inadequate, slouch on the sofa feeling sorry for yourself, shut yourself away because no-one would be interested and you have a whole heap of intractable problems and a truly unhappy life. You choose.

    Hippie makes some very valid comments in his post. I post again on this topic to bring it to the top of the heap. Interesting fact, many read it; however only one LPSG member responded. Maybe I am unique and have experienced problems. In any regard, I posted to bring this topic up and possible learn of other ways to resolve the problems I posted about and experienced.

    No problem. Thank You Hippie and others who may desire to post.

    I don't smoke,
    I don't drink alcoholic beverages,
    My total cholesterol is 163,
    I'm not an adulterer,
    Nor a fornicator.
    And I take a bath once a week whether I need it or not.

    Most people don't realize "fornication" comes from the Greek word for prostitute. Actually, I don't think I've ever heard the term outside of revivals. (And I don't mean of Annie Get Your Gun either.)

    Well, not being a guy, I have no experience on erectile issues, but I decided at 41 to give myself a complete health overhaul. Much of my motivation came from the idea of improving my sex life, and if that made me want to be healthier, so be it. I think we are all sexual creatures and we just have to find out where we fit into the general scheme of things to feel good about ourselves.

    Hippie, I wholeheartedly agree with your summation of how our attitudes affect our reality. Self-fulfilling prophecies are the one thing we CAN control!

    itsabigone: I have to agree that a lot of habits like smoking and drinking tend to cut down on any guy's libido, but in my experience I have found that a simple frame of mind can make the difference between a full salute or not. If you lack confidence and the person that you are with can't give you any by complimenting you, then it can be difficult. Being 21 and in my prime, I have learned a lot when it comes to sexuality. As a teenager, you grow and develop confidence in yourself through your experiences. If you have bad experiences, it cuts down on your self esteem and you can lose confidence in yourself. Positive experiences will strengthen you and you will become much more relaxed and your body responds much better. The best thing for anybody is someone who has a healthy love for what you can do(and even what you can't do) and can instill the confidence you need to make it a relaxed and pleasurable experience. I suffered with troubles of getting condoms to fit and positions to facilitate my larger size. But my girlfriend showed me so much love, support, and patience that it soon no longer bothered me and I could relax and just enjoy myself and Voila!! Sucess. Just stay positive and have faith in yourself. B)

    You know, in thinking about this, it's a doggone shame we men often try to keep our overall bodies in shape and often ignore giving thought to "conditioning and maintaining our penises". --That IS an important part of our body. And we often take our penis for granted...assuming it's okay and will "work" upon demand. Most of the time it does of course. But is it really at optimum performance?
    Do we ever think about that?

    Since erections occur due to "blood flow into the penis", it just makes sense then, for a man to do everything possible to assure good circulation and "heart-health".
    Diet and cholesterol management, curtailing smoking,and other preventative measures seem appropriate for all men, regardless of age.

    I like to add too, that a "good penis workout" (beyond intercourse and sexual play) also makes good sense. This "exercise session" can be done just once a week and good results can occur. Achieving a fairly good, stiff erection and then taking the required extra time to "slowly work over the penis" along its entire length and even doing some light squeezes (and holding them briefly) at different sections of the penis shaft will help increase blood flow to the inner tissues. Even when the penis is just "semi-hard", a man can still continue to work out and "work over" his penis to continue the increased blood flow and engorgement of the tissues. Lightly stretch and bend the shaft in each direction (within painfree limits, that is!) is good, too. Of course, using a lubricant ( Baby Oil, KY, petroleum jelly, astroglide) all help in keeping the penis skin from becoming too irritated "from all the attention" . I'm 50 now and over the last several years, I have been following this regimen described above and see considerable improvement in overall erection "strength" and even frequent "AM Wood" (which had diminished before doing exercises, btw).

    For those of us not all that sexually active, it 's worth noting (I believe) that current medical rationale is telling us fellas that regular ejaculations (whatever that means to us as individual men--daily, every other day, whatever--) i.e. keeping ourselves "relieved of semen" only encourages healthier prostates! Not regularly "using" our male systems isn't good for us. And let's face it--not all of us men have wetdreams (or can even rely on them!) to do keep down the pressures of just "being men". We also need to lose the guilty feelings over this stuff.

    This is the kind of talk we so often DON'T talk about as guys.
    -- But, we really should. ;)
