Erectile Dysfunction and Vascular Disease

In medicine, erectile dysfunction is defined as “lack of man’s ability to obtain or maintain hard erection sufficient for sexual intercourse”. The erection of the penis requires orchestrated operation of vascular, nervous and hormonal region. The message of sexual stimulation triggered by the brain is transmitted through the spinal cord to nerve endings that reach the corpora cavernosa – spongy consistency of structures to fill with blood causing the penis erection.

When receiving the message, endothelial cells (lining of the inner wall of the arteries) of the penile arteries release neurotransmitters which will relax the smooth muscle of the blood vessels supplying the corpus cavernosum, facilitating their filling.

Chief among these is the neurotransmitter nitric oxide. The accumulation of this substance facilitates the relaxation of the trabeculae which constitute the corpora cavernosa to increase the inflow of blood. Most drugs used for treatment of erectile dysfunction, exerts its action by increasing concentrations of dopamine in the vessels of the penis.

As men do not like to admit they suffer from erectile dysfunction, it is not always easy to estimate the prevalence of the problem. In one of the most respected studies on the subject, the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, conducted with 1290 men between 40 and 70 years, it was shown that 52% had some degree of dysfunction and 10% had complete absence of erection.

The erectile dysfunction can be classified as psychogenic, organic or mixed. The organic cause can be of vascular origin, neurogenic, hormonal, and drug-induced or be associated with anatomical changes in the corpus cavernosum.

Contrary to what many think, the organic causes are the most common: they are about 80% of cases. Important among them are vascular causes:

1) Atherosclerosis:

It is the most common of all causes. In the mechanism of formation of atherosclerotic plaques occurs to induce endothelial injury with consequent reduction of the internal diameter of the vessel and difficulty maintaining blood flow. Aging also changes the endothelium nitric oxide levels, damaging the blood into the corpora cavernosa.

2) Cigarette:

Smoking for many years is one of the biggest risk factors for the development of erectile dysfunction vascular cause. Toxic substances present in cigarette cause damage to the endothelium and reduce the levels of nitric oxide in the penis. In addition, nicotine itself causes contraction of smooth muscles of blood vessels that irrigate the corpora cavernosa, reducing the blood supply to the site.

3) Diabetes:

In the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, 28% of diabetic patients had erectile dysfunction, compared to 9.6% of non-diabetics (prevalence three times). The causes are linked to more accelerated atherosclerosis, changes in the tissues of the corpora cavernosa and diabetic neuropathy.

4) Hypertension:

It is a major cause of erectile dysfunction as American study cited above made clear. Would it be caused by hypertension itself or was related to the anti-hypertensive medication? This controversy was clarified by a recent study: both drugs as hypertension itself can be held responsible for erection difficulties.

5) Hyperlipidemia:

The presence of high blood levels of LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides and fibrinogen are associated with erectile dysfunction in both smokers and non-smokers.

The listing above shows that the factors erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular diseases share similar risk factors. Erection difficulty may be the first symptom of coronary disease, since both are linked to impairment of the endothelium, an essential framework for the regulation of the circulatory functions.

Since the risk factors mentioned act synergistically on the vascular endothelium, the extent and severity of cardiovascular involvement is often proportional to the degree of difficulty of erection.

Female Ejaculation

Even today, when sex is no longer a taboo and all the information regarding sex is available on the internet, only a small number of people is familiar with female ejaculation. Even the old Indians who lived few thousand years ago knew about female ejaculation. Unfortunately, many modern men and women have only heard about it, but they are not sure if this type of ejaculation actually exists. In tantric yoga, the ancient eastern practice that combines spirituality and sexuality, the fluid ejaculated by women is called amrita or divine nectar. This fluid in the vagina is which occurs during sexual arousal comes from many sources – Bartholin and Skene’s glands, which are located at the crossroads of the opening of the vagina and vulva and the walls of vagina during sexual stimulation. Properly stimulated women during sexual intercourse experience a rush of fluids in the vagina and this fluid is usually discharged during orgasm.

All those men who wonder whether the feeling of female ejaculation is similar to their ejaculation should know that these feelings are not similar because female ejaculation is much stronger. Many women and men look at this ejaculation as some kind of achievement. Men are really proud because they believe if ejaculation occurs then they were especially good in the bed. But, this is the moment when we need to point out that the mechanism of female ejaculation is not physiologically identical to male ejaculation. Female ejaculation doesn’t even have to be (in fact it often isn’t) associated with orgasm, but more with great excitement and stimulation of certain body parts. So, female ejaculation is not necessarily a guarantee of a stronger, better, longer and more intense orgasm, although it usually means greater excitement. Now let’s see how this work in practice.

The “recipe” is actually very simple. If you want to make your partner ejaculate during the sexual intercourse, stimulate and excite her, but don’t let her reach an orgasm. Of course, you need to be aware that this procedure is much easier in cases when the partners are together for a long period of time. Some modern women are frustrated because of a variety of reasons that they are ready to grab the first orgasm offered to them and they tend to be very dissatisfied if you stop doing the things that suit them, change the pace or something similar. Many people view women as climbers that slowly but surely climb to the peak. This means that women are able to reach an orgasm only when they are certain that they can reach it. This is the only time when they are relaxed enough.

It is good to point out that there is no universal rule. Each woman requires individual approach. Before you start this journey when you have time and will, when you are well rested and never create pressure on your partner by saying that this is the night when she will ejaculate strong. Keep in mind that female ejaculation is not something that can be planned, it doesn’t happen every time and if sometimes doesn’t occur this doesn’t mean that your partner is less satisfied.

Few Ways to Make Sex Last Longer

There are a lot of men who are wondering how they can extend the time of the sexual intercourse. The answer is actually really simple – through practicing some exercises and learning few techniques.

A lot of articles deal with premature ejaculation, but very few focus on extending the normal sexual intercourse. Many men feel uncomfortable because they want their sex to last longer but they can’t find a way to postpone the ejaculation for some period. It is important to be aware that the key factor for making you lasting longer in bed is in your head. The more you are worried the worse results in your bed you will have. Having a partner that constantly makes pressure about the duration of sex can also worsen the situation. If you want to improve and extend your sex, both of you should be patient, careful and optimistic. There are many ways to extend your intercourse and one of the most important thing sis to known your own body and the way it is functioning. Once you master that, your intercourse will be much better. Now let’s see some of the ways that can help you extend your sex.

First of all, try to stimulate your penis to the point where you start to feel that ejaculation is about to happen. In that moment stop the stimulation or even pull out the penis from the vagina and keep it outside until your sexual desire decreases. You can do this several times during one intercourse. After few weeks you will feel the results – you will last longer and you won’t need to practice this technique. Of course, your partner should be aware before you start using this technique because the sudden stop in the intercourse can be unpleasant. Once you explain the benefits she will surely support you.

Another similar method has proven to be effective too. Right before you feel that you are about to ejaculate squeeze your penis. Use the thumb under the glans penis and use the index finger to hold the glans penis. Remember to make a firm grip. The best thing to do is to focus on squeezing the urethra which passes along the penis.

Although condoms are usually used for prevention of unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases, condoms can also be used to gain endurance during sexual intercourse. Using a thicker condom will additionally decrease the sensitivity of your penis during the intercourse.

Masturbation is another great way to improve sexual endurance and decrease sexual tension. With more frequent masturbation you can develop a routine that can lead to extended sexual intercourse. You can also stop masturbating before ejaculation if you want to get better results.

Just like masturbation, using sex toys can make you feel more resistant to sexual stimulation. There are many different types of sex toys on the market and the most efficient ones are the so-called sexual stimulators. You can also use a sex toy during sex especially in the periods when you feel that you can’t stop ejaculation any longer.

How To Make Him Reach Orgasm Faster?

There are some days when women are not in the mood for having a long sex or they are just tired of pleasing their men for a longer period. Luckily there are few things that women can do to help men reach orgasm faster.

First of all, you can use his foreskin in order to speed up things. If you gently pull the foreskin of his penis down, he will feel the stimulation in a much more intensive way. This will of course cause him to ejaculate much faster. Experienced men can always keep their ejaculation a little bit longer, especially if they are focused on satisfying their partner.

Have you ever heard about frenulum? The frenulum is by far the most sensitive part of the penis. The frenulum is actually the part of the penis just under the glans penis and you can easily spot it because it looks like a spot where the penis is pressed – like it has some kind of seam. You can certainly speed up the ejaculation if you properly stimulate this part of the penis. This can be achieved very easily if you use some kind of lubricant, which will dampen the dry skin. If you are practicing oral sex, use the tip of your tongue to tease the frenulum and if you use your hands and fingers, glide over that area with clenched fingers while gently stroking his penis. Make sure that the pressure you apply on the penis is not too strong, because too rough or too fast stroking can cause insensitivity or even some injuries. So this can cause a counter effect if you don’t do it properly.

Manual stimulation of the penis (or so-called handjob) is another way to help men reach orgasm faster. If you are getting ready to perform a massage like that make sure you apply oil on your hands and use your whole hand to pull the penis up and down. Remember that this massage must be performed gently and try to determine what kind of rhythm makes him more aroused. You can make a combination of this sexual stimulation with oral sex which can stimulate his penis even more. Don’t be carried away by this act because you can easily get injured (neck injuries).

Many men find female masturbation very attractive. So, don’t be shy and gently rub your nipples and vagina. This will instantly cause a reaction in your partner and he will most likely start to masturbate too. This is a great way to take a break if you are very tired.

Some men have a spot on the bottom of their penis, right under the testicles or in some cases near to the anus, which can intensify their feelings if it’s under pressure. If you know where that spot is find the right moment and press that spot when you think that he is near to the end. You can also combine this method with oral sex, but this is only possible for women that are very experienced.

How To Increase Sexual Excitement

People that are in a relationship for a short time are usually crazy about each other; all the time spent together is fun, intense and beautiful. But after a while the excitement is gone although it looks like the couple is in love even more than before.

Excitement that we feel at the beginning of the relationship is caused by the exciting feeling of unknown and unexpected because the person that we don’t know that well, but looks beautiful to us, can easily surprise us. Of course the routine that comes after awhile has its benefits; because we must admit that the excitement and stress that we feel at the beginning can be devastating for our health if it lasts for years. This doesn’t mean that people should not do something different occasionally in order to rise the levels of adrenaline in their systems. These are some of the things that you can do to increase the sexual excitement in your relationship

  • Fear can be helpful

When we experience fear the levels of adrenaline raise and this state can be compared to sexual arousal. The symptoms are the same – the heart is beating faster, we sweat and almost all our senses are activated. It is no wonder why people practice extreme sports in order to feel alive. Controlled fear is excellent for good sex, so if you don’t like extreme sports try something other that can boost your adrenaline – visit some theme park or something else but most importantly do that with your partner.

  • Be bold

Younger people enjoy swimming naked during night time when there are no people around but there is a possibility that someone might see that. The excitement that anticipation brings is amazing.

So use your imagination and try something similar even if you are older, take nude photos of your partner while you are in an elevator, begin the foreplay at the cinema etc. People often forget how this kind of “fooling around” can give the mind a sexual stimulation.

  • Reveal all the secrets

People become closer when they talk about the most intimate things about them and even if you are with the same partner for a long time there are always things that you forgot to tell or maybe you were to scared to tell. This could be an excellent game of revealing secrets; you should start first by revealing one secret then it would be your partner’s turn. Those secrets don’t have to be something important; a simple small lie can do the job.

  • Recreate your first date

You probably remember many details of the day when you first met your partner. These memories alone bring pleasant feeling every time. So maybe it’s time to recreate that first date. Try going to the same place where you first met each other and start acting like you don’t know each other. Introduce yourself and start flirting. This role paying is very interesting and can lead to real eruption in your bed!
