Something tells me you’re not an 18 year old wide-eyed college freshman reading this. According to statistics, more than 18 million men in the United States over the age of 20 are affected by erectile dysfunction (or ED). Most men’s erectile issues begin in their 30s and 40s. After age 50, the average guy’s sexual performance slowly declines. And by age 70, sex is often just a distant memory. I don’t know about you, but I still want to be making ‘whoopee’ as an old man! Popping a Viagra pill can work, but do you really want a 4 hour erection? Read below for 7 natural remedies to getting and maintaining a stronger, harder erection.
Eat healthy foods
Get this equation in your head: healthy eating = healthy erection. Eating healthy, nutritious foods (e.g. fruits and vegetables) boosts your sexual performance. For example, tomatoes contains lycopene, a chemical that helps maintain prostate and sexual health.
If eating healthy foods is on the list, you know exercise is not far behind. There are numerous reports showing that working out on a consistent basis boosts sexual performance. In addition, the prevalence of erectile dysfunction is not only strongly linked with age but also a lack of physical activity. If you want to be strong below the waist, then lift weights and get stronger everywhere else.
Missionary position more often
You may want to do 1001 sex positions like your favorite porn star to impress your partner, but it’s actually not necessary. In fact, the missionary position is all you need to please her. Taking advantage of gravity and being on top can help give you increased blood flow, leading to a better erection.
Stress is cancerous to your libido. Studies show that high levels of anxiety can negatively affect your sex drive. In other words, being hard on yourself equals no hard-on. It’s understandable that work, school, family and other life activities can be stressful. That’s why we advise you to start meditating at least 10 minutes per day. Just a few minutes of stress-free solitude will help boost your sexual mood.
Get At Least 7 Hours of Sleep
Not getting enough ‘zzz’s’ will make it hard to sexually please. Sleeping less than seven hours a night disrupts the hormones that govern sex drive and sexual potency. It’s best to lay off the late-night TV shows and start hitting the sack early so you can please her better.
Dismiss Your Mistress
Let’s keep it real. There are a number of guys in the world cheating on their spouse. If you’re one of them, I’m not here to judge. However, if you’re having issues getting an erection for your wife or partner, it’s probably due to guilt. Guilt can transform into anxiety very quickly. As stated earlier, anxiety is detrimental to your sex drive. If you’re messing around with another woman (or women), it makes it hard to get a hard-on for your main lover. For that reason alone, it’s best to kick your mistress to the curb. Besides, if you’re not pleasing your lover, they may go elsewhere to get their kicks (if they haven’t already).
We know that improving self-confidence is not something that happens overnight. And it’s easy to say, but not stressing too much over getting an erection will do the world of good in both boosting your confidence and ultimately being able to get and maintain a firm erection. If your mindset is so focused on thinking about how you’re not erect, instead of on how attractive your partner is, then this might be the problem. If your lack of confidence is size related, then there’s many exercises or devices which can help with increasing your penis size. The SizeGenetics penis extender can help with increasing your size and your confidence. Find out more about how it works here.
