How To Naturally BOOST Testosterone Without Drugs Or Danger?

How To Naturally BOOST Testosterone Without Drugs Or Danger?

How to Naturally BOOST Testosterone Without Drugs or Danger?

Who else is looking for a safe, easy and 100% natural way to boost testosterone? If you are anything like most of our readers, the truth is, over the age of 25 or so... you are losing more testosterone with every passing month, and this can have a bevy of negative side effects across all sorts of male performance metrics. (from the bedroom, to the boardroom the beach and beyond)

Simply stated, testosterone is linked to body mass, energy, mood, performance, sexual virility and so much more.

Let's look at some of the various ways to increase testosterone naturally from around the web below including, some unusual approaches like meditation, deep breathing exercises (like Wim Hoff breath work) cold showers, and more.

Lift Weights. Yes, there are many ways to stay in shape these days that DON'T require hitting the weight room in the gym. But when it comes to boosting testosterone through actual exercise, weight resistance training remains one of the very best ways to make it happen, naturally... and in a hurry. Some of our readers claim that lifting weights, even in moderation, can lead to 7-10% improvements in testosterone levels over a 2 month training period.

High interval training. (HIT) This is simply exercise based on EXPLOSIVE movements, over very short periods of time, with high intensity "bursts" repeated frequently. This is well known to be an easy way to improve all sorts of health markers for men, and testosterone levels are just one of the "healthy" hormone increases you'll see from this sort of routine.

Dietary changes can be a HUGE help in naturally increasing testosterone, and in 2 very decidedly different directions. Intermittent fasting has been shown to increase testosterone in 24 hours or less, often by large percentage increases.

16, 20 or even 24 hour fasts (no calories, only water) offer a bevy of benefits including potential longevity and anti-aging potentials as well.

On the other side of the dietary spectrum, increasing the amount of good fat in your diet can lead to dramatic natural gains in testosterone. Avocado, salmon, oily fish, nuts, seeds are all recommended for those of you looking for great gains without drugs, supplements or over the counter treatments.

Lastly, meditation is a great way to get all sorts of natural improvements in many hormones that regulate sexual performance, energy levels and more. Why? Cortisol, the stress hormone, is a well known drain on testosterone levels and meditation is a great way of reducing cortisol, as well as increasing all sorts of other "feel good" hormones in the brain, and body... and some believe, beyond!

Common Sexual Problems in Men - Impotence

Causes

Impotence can have various causes and it can be influenced by both psychological and physical factors.

However, keep in mind that anxiety, stress, sexual boredom, depression or problems in a relationship can also cause impotence.

Facts related to impotence

Believe it or not, impotence can affect one in ten men all around the world. Of course, it is impossible to know the exact number of men who suffer from impotence. This happens because many people who suffer from impotence to embarrassed to go to the doctor. Most of the people in cause consider that they cannot discuss this problem with their doctors or sexual partners. But this is just another obstacle in resolving the problem.

It is much better to treat a dysfunction than to leave it to worsen. So if you have any problems in this area, you can also suffer from disappointment, anxiety, emotion, etc. And the list can continue with even worse conditions, if you do not seek medical advice.

How can erectile dysfunction be treated?

Recently, lots of treatments have been discovered and improved. They have managed to prove to be quite successful. Nowadays, there are lots of treatments that remain available for everyone in need to use. Firstly, you should talk to your partner. Sometimes men can give in to the pressure (intentional or not) to perform. In this case, a serious discussion can take the load off and even encourage an erection.

Lifestyle

This is another thing to consider. For instance, drug abuse, too much alcohol or heavy smoking can intensify the impotence problems. If you suffer from impotence, consider seeing a doctor who can offer you a full and complete consultation. After investigations, this doctor can offer you the proper remedy. There are a couple of popular drugs that are normally prescribed when the problem of male erectile dysfunction strikes. But every man has different problems, so every treatment will also be different. What matters the most is to get healthy and to have a good sex life!

What Causes OCD?

Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, United Kingdom (MRC Psych), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ghaziabad

OCD stands for obsessive compulsive disorder.
Obsessions are repetitive thoughts, ideas, images which the person knows are wrong but cannot stop them resulting in marked anxiety and unease.
Compulsions are repetitive acts either imaginary or physical done in response to an obsession eg repetitive hand washing, cleaning, detail to symmetry, hoarding etc.

Many factors might play a part:

Ocd is sometimes inherited, so it can run in the family. Stressful life events bring it on in about one in three cases. Life changes - when you have to take on more responsibility, such as puberty, the birth of a child, or a new job, if you have ocd for a long time, some experts think that an imbalance of a brain chemical called'serotonin' (also known as 5ht) may be involved. You are a neat, meticulous, methodical person – but go too far. If you have particularly high standards of morality and responsibility, you may feel bad when you have unpleasant thoughts. So, you watch out for them – which makes them more likely to happen.

Erectile Dysfunction - Delaying Treatment Can Make The Problem Worse

Erectile Dysfunction - Delaying Treatment Can Make The Problem Worse

Erectile Dysfunction - Delaying Treatment Can Make The Problem Worse

Erectile Dysfunction issues are more common than you might think. The term erectile dysfunction also known as ED or impotence happens when the manhood does not fill with enough blood so the penis will not harden and expand when a man has sexual intercourse. The number of men these days that suffer with this condition has skyrocketed but fortunately, the number of options for treating the it has also increased.

Erectile dysfunction can happen at any age but does become more common in men as they grow older. This issue is extremely common and affects at least half of all men between the age of 45 - 65 years of age. If you have erectile dysfunction, the treatment recommended will depend on the underlying cause of the problem. In some cases, the problem can go away with little or no treatment at all. In many cases, it can be an on-going issue. If you have trouble with sexual performance more than 25% of the time, it is a problem. This can be a sign of an underlying health issue that needs attention, so seeking the right treatment is important. Research shows that physical factors often cause erectile issues. Erection problems that do not go away can also cause further emotional stress. This includes damage to self-esteem, self-confidence and overall can possibly cause damage to a relationship. The main recommendation is to address the problem at the earliest and seek treatment sooner rather than later.

Hard Facts

1. Erectile dysfunction is not the same as premature ejaculation which is having an orgasm too quickly.
2. Male infertility is also a different from erection issues.
3. Erectile Dysfunction can affect a man at any age. 
4. Physical causes are more common in older men and emotional reasons are more known in younger men.
5. Bad habits such as smoking, excessive alcohol and poor diet are all contributing factors to ED.
6. The underlying root cause of erectile dysfunction can simply be lack of exercise.
7. Intimate relationships often suffer, especially if the situation is not addressed.

Erection Treatments

Aside from pills like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis, there are also pumps and surgical procedures that can bring a flagging sex life back. With the pills, you take a dose before you plan to have sex. Unfortunately many men suffer from many unwanted side effects. The side effects of erection pumps can include pain and bruising. Surgery is usually only recommended as a last resort if all other treatment methods have not worked successfully.

Natural Remedies

Besides the standard treatments, there are several natural remedies and many are now being used more than ever, especially for men who no longer want to tolerate the side effects of medications. For many men, simple lifestyle changes can provide some immediate relief:

• Cut down on smoking, another reason to quit.
• Avoid the use of alcohol or limit it. 
• Exercise 2- 3 times a week even if just a brisk walk.
• Get plenty of rest and take time to relax. Relaxation exercises may be beneficial. 
• Get enough sleep.
• Eat a balanced and healthy diet to maintain good well-being.
• Some super foods for include fish, nuts, fruit, vegetables and grains as they will improve blood circulation.
• Other foods like garlic have aphrodisiac properties and are said to be beneficial for men with this issue.

Once you have the right help for erectile dysfunction, dealing with it as you go through treatment will be easier and not so stressful for yourself and your partner. There are also numerous penile exercises that prove very helpful for men trying to overcome erectile dysfunction.

Sex And Pregnancy: Understanding Penis Health

Sex And Pregnancy: Understanding Penis Health

Sex and Pregnancy: Understanding Penis Health

When a man chooses to father a child, he's likely quite ready for the joys of having a little one around the house. But he might not be so keen on what those nine months of pregnancy (and many months of recovery beyond) will do to his sex life. Though most men have the good sense not to mention this worry to their blossoming partners, it's definitely something that bothers many. Since a guy knows that good penis health requires giving their member exercise on a regular basis, he might wonder how to do that appropriately - and not hurt their partner or put the pregnancy at risk in the meantime.

The good news is that there are many ways around the pregnancy issue when it comes to sex, including ways that a man can ensure his good penis health during those nine months and beyond. Here's how.

1) Be sensitive to positions. Though many women are more than happy to get it on during pregnancy, some positions might be off limits for the duration. That's because a guy who reaches too far into the vaginal canal can lead to pain for the woman, something that nobody wants. Some positions that work well for pain free sex include doggy, with no pressure placed on her abdomen, or side-by-side.

2) Expect a few months of "off limits." There might be some occasions when it seems physically fine to have sex, but the woman is feeling - to put it mildly - like death warmed over. She's throwing up or feeling nauseas, she has a headache, she's dealing with inexplicable back pain, and she's otherwise just not in the best of moods. This often happens during those first months of pregnancy. Be patient and never push the issue.

3) Be careful near the end. Some men find their partners completely irresistible during those final months of pregnancy and they want to have sex as often as possible. However, there are two things to keep in mind: First, her growing bulk might make some positions impossible or might mean that sex hurts, so takes all cues from her. Second, for some women, sex near the end of pregnancy might trigger labor before it's time. That's something a doctor will determine, and if he or she says to avoid sex, heed that advice!

4) Watch out for yeast infections. Pregnancy changes a woman's body in almost every way imaginable, including the environment of her vagina. She might experience significant dryness, or might go the other way and have excess moisture. The hormone changes can also make it more likely for her to suffer yeast infections, which can easily be passed on to a man through intercourse.

5) Study the penis skin carefully. This tip isn't for the man's sake as much as it is for hers. If a guy has issues with his penis skin, such as warts, bumps or redness, it is a good idea to abstain from sexual activity until a doctor clears him for it. This is to protect the woman and unborn child from complications that might arise from passing along infections of any kind.

6) It's okay to not get any. For some, sex is off limits throughout the duration of the pregnancy. Don't get upset if this happens; remember that it's only for a short period of time and the reward at the end is one of the best things that a man can ever experience. In the meantime, he can take things into his own hands in the shower or other private area, and thus keep his penis health up to par during his period of abstinence.

No matter the situation, a man should reach for a specially formulated penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to ensure his member stays in good health. A blend of powerful vitamins and nutrients can be just the ticket to keeping good penis health and being ready to rock when the pregnancy is over.

Myths And Malpractices Related To Breast Cancer

Myths And Malpractices Related To Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer:

These two words are enough to instil anxiety and assumptions in the minds of many. Replete with prejudices, myths and malpractices, this disease is more feared than managed or treated. For example, how often have women wondered if wearing a bra can cause breast cancer? How often have your spouse or a loved one talked themselves out of a diagnosis, because they were shy of the procedure, and also because they thought that there was no way they could have the disease? How often have they concluded that they need to get their breasts removed knowing a close blood relative had the disease or undergo an extremely painful chemotherapy regime if they were diagnosed with breast cancer?

Wondering and presuming these things isn’t their fault- it’s because of the general lack of awareness and hence, several myths the disease brings in its wake. In this section, we answer some of the most common myths surrounding breast cancer, in detail. It is of utmost importance to make women aware of these myths since this often leads to bad practices such as avoiding proper check-ups, which ultimately culminates into the delay in diagnosis treatment breast cancer, which can prove to be fatal.

Myth: Breast cancer risk is very low.

Fact: This misconception is one of the leading causes of a late diagnosis in India. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Indian women, and according to the National Cancer Registry Program of India, it accounts for 27% of all cancer in women, as of 2012. About 1.5 lakh new cases are diagnosed every year of which, 0.75 lakh cases succumb to the disease within the 1st five years. India has the dubious distinction of having the highest incidence-to-mortality conversion in the world attributed to lack of awareness about symptoms, late-stage detection and poor treatment outcomes. In our country, this disease occurs at a much younger, premenopausal age, that is, the average age of around 45 in India as compared to 65 in the West. Approximately 1 in 22  Indian women carries a lifetime risk of developing the disease. Also, approximately 1 in 3 breast cancers will be identified as a triple negative breast cancer which is a aggressive breast cancer and is most prevalent in Indian women, compared to the 10-15% risk in other ethnicities.

Owing to the assumption that the risk is low and that cancer occurs at a much later age group, middle-aged women at a higher risk of breast cancer shy away from diagnosis and do not get annual mammograms done. In fact, according to a study carried out in Oldham, England in 2010, only 35% of Asian women were likely to attend the routine check-up done by National Health Service of England, as opposed to 70% of non-Asian women. The reasons behind shying away from getting an annual check-up done after 40 years of age could be ignorance, financial reasons, discomfort with the check-up procedure or anxiety of the reports. Regardless, this inertia in undergoing routine medically advised check-up of the breasts can result in missing an early diagnosis which then decreases the chances of effective treatment of the disease. At our clinic, we have seen cases where breast cancer has been diagnosed at a very early stage because the women underwent annual mammograms, and thus could be easily managed and cured. It is our humble request to all the women to break their inhibitions and get an annual breast check-up done under the supervision of a breast cancer expert after the age of 40.

Myth: If a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, her breasts will be removed (mastectomized).

Fact: If breast cancer occurs, then there is 80% chance that the breasts will not be removed. Most women will have a single cancerous lump in their breast and the breast can always be saved by a well-planned, cosmetic surgery. Breast reconstruction is done in the same procedure with the same anaesthesia, resulting in better-looking breasts and cosmetics as they can be lifted and shaped according to the patient’s desire. A questionnaire conducted by our centre reported no depression and out of 147 patients surveyed, most were very satisfied with the reconstruction outcomes (94%). Mastectomy, or breast removal surgery, is performed in few percentages of patients- may be 20%, where there are multiple tumours. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that a woman does not fear the outcome of a diagnosis and delay getting examined altogether. Such bad practice can result in an advanced-stage breast cancer, which could have been diagnosed at an early stage and treated, now being treated by mastectomy, owing to the consequent delay in treatment.   

Myth: General health check-ups are excellent for every diagnosis, including breast cancer.

Fact: This is one of the biggest and most dangerous myths. General health check-ups cannot diagnose any cancer, let alone breast cancer. Therefore it is pivotal for a woman to get a mammogram and clinical breast examination done at a specialized breast health centre, under the care of specialists and professionals. National expert panels do not recommend general health check-ups. The Canadian Task Force on the Periodic Health Examination as well as the United States Preventative Service Task Force, recommended focused health checks, as opposed to general ones, in 1979 and 1989, respectively. One review published in the Cochrane Library by Krogsbøllet al. in 2012 reported that “general health checks did not reduce morbidity or mortality, neither overall nor for cardiovascular or cancer causes”, based on the trials that they conducted. According to an article published in 2015, in which a joint analysis was undertaken by medical liability insurers (Doctors Co. and CRICO, USA), amongst the 562 malpractice claims between 2009 to 2014, 39% related to the alleged negligent treatment of patients, including misinterpretation of diagnostic studies in general health check-up schemes.

In general, it is believed that about 48% of the delayed-diagnosis cases involved radiology, with primary care physicians or other clinicians have misread or misinterpreted the radiology report. General health check-ups is also a scheme by hospitals to pick up patients for treatment, with surgeons performing open breast biopsies (i.e, a surgical procedure where a cut is made through the skin to expose and remove tissues), which is an obsolete diagnostic modality for breast cancer. In fact, in America, according to sources, a doctor doing an open breast biopsy is liable to lose his registration. The biopsies should be done after careful radiological investigation and are only minimally invasive needle biopsies. Due to such myths and malpractices, women are afraid to present themselves for diagnosis, because they fear that every lump will be removed with a surgery. The fact is that out of 100 women presented with lumps, maybe 1 or 2 actually need a surgery. 

Myth: Chemotherapy and radiation therapy should be avoided as they are extremely painful.

Fact: Both these types of therapies have been exaggerated to be ‘worse than death itself’. This is absolutely not true. Chemotherapy has improved leaps and bounds with drugs that are much easier to tolerate as they are targeted, which means that they predominantly affect the cancer cells and not the normal ones. Earlier, the known side effects of chemotherapy were nausea, vomiting, reduction of blood counts, and infections. Today with current improvements in the drugs with chemotherapy as well as antidotes against complications, chemotherapy has become extremely safe and the side effects have substantially reduced. In fact, some determined women take chemo and go to work. The only major, common side effect of chemotherapy as of today is the hair loss which is a temporary and reversible phenomenon A daycare facility is extremely proficient with the treatment, with most of the regimens needing just 5 hours or less. Many hospitals admit patients for chemotherapy, more for financial gains than an actual need for inpatient admission procedures. At our facility, chemotherapy is a procedure requiring maximum 5 hours, with loungers and personalized TVs, a counsellor and a nutritionist for free, private consultation in a spa-like ambience.

There are fewer side-effects of radiotherapy as well if done by adept radiotherapists and physicists with extremely sophisticated and state-of-the-art equipment. Both these procedures are extremely safe, with the woman not even needing hospitalization.

Myth: Wearing a bra, antiperspirants and deodorants can cause breast cancer.

Fact: It is due to the existence of these myths that the focus has been shifted from the actual risk factors to such obsolete ones. None of the aforementioned items has been shown to cause breast cancer. The real risk factors leading to breast cancer are of two types: the modifiable and the non-modifiable. The modifiable risk factors include alcohol, smoking, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, not breastfeeding and not having children or having them late. The non-modifiable ones include genetics, having a family history of breast cancer, older age, exposure to radiation, race and ethnicity, early menarche and late menopause. Most of the modifiable risk factors can be avoided if one took care of their health, diet and got sufficient exercise.

Myth: If a woman has a family history of breast cancer, she is likely to develop breast cancer as well.

Fact: While it is true that women who have a family history of breast cancer are at a higher risk of getting the disease, it is also true that most women who have breast cancer have no family history of the disease. Statistically, only 10% of the women diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history.
So what should you do if you have a family history of this disease?

That depends on your relation to that particular family member.
If you have a first-degree relative with breast cancer, that is, if your mother, sister or daughter developed breast cancer under the age of 50, you should consider some form of regular diagnostic breast imaging as well as genetic testing.

When should you consider it?

Starting ten years before the age of your relative’s diagnosis.

Having a first-degree male relative with breast cancer- however rare, but a clinically observed phenomenon also raises a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer.
If you have a second-degree relative with breast cancer, such as a grandmother or an aunt, your risk increases moderately, however, definitely not as much if you had a first-degree relative with breast cancer.
If you have multiple generations diagnosed with breast cancer on the same side of the family, or if there are several individuals who are first-degree relatives to one another or several family members diagnosed at the age of 50, you should be careful, as you have an increased probability of having a defective breast cancer-causing gene, given your breast cancer-prone family history.

In such scenarios, you should consult with a breast cancer specialist and undergo appropriate genetic testing only after prior genetic counselling of the family.

Small Penis Facts: The Micropenis

Small Penis Facts: The Micropenis

Small Penis Facts: The Micropenis

There's no sign that men's anxieties concerning penis size are slowing down; as a matter of fact, some believe that the near-omnipresence of online porn is only making men feel more and more anxious about whether they have a small penis or not. The evidence suggests that the vast majority of men don't need to worry; though they may not have equipment that would make a horse jealous, most men have more than enough equipment to satisfy themselves and their partners. As a matter of fact, the actual occurrence of men with a micropenis seems to be definitely rare. Some studies indicate less than 0.5% of men would qualify as a micropenis possessor, and other studies suggest the prevalence is even smaller.

Of course, just what is a micropenis? There's some debate as to the exact definition, with some believing it is any penis which measures less than 3 inches in length while erect and others opting for 2.5" or 2". So for the purposes of this article, it must be left vague - but it is in any case a smaller than typical penis.

With that in mind, here are a few facts about the small penis referred to as a micropenis.

- A guy with a micropenis may still be a grower rather than a shower. Even though a micropenis is a very small penis when erect, it may be even smaller when flaccid. Also, in some cases it may be bigger in circumference than in length.

- It still works. Though it may be a small penis, it still functions exactly the same as a larger model. The same stimuli create an increase in penile blood flow and retention, leading to a hardening which enables the penis to achieve penetration. Many women report that they still achieve sexual satisfaction even when their partner has a micropenis. And many women have become pregnant from men with a very small penis.

- Urinating can be an issue. If the penis is especially small when soft, it may be difficult to urinate standing up. The penis may not extend far enough out of the flap or it may not reach the urinal or toilet properly.

- Hormones may help. In some cases, especially if the penis is determined to be especially small at an early age, infusions of male hormones may help to increase the length somewhat. This is especially true when the brevity of size is due to a lack of testosterone production while in the womb.

- Kallmann Syndrome may also be to blame. Sometimes a micropenis is the result of a genetic disorder known as Kallmann Syndrome - or indeed of other diseases in the family called hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Essentially, a person with Kallmann Syndrome is kept from starting or fully finishing puberty. The hypothalamus fails to produce GnRH hormone, which in turn means that the body doesn't produce adequate amounts of testosterone. In addition to the penis being small, the testicles are also usually much smaller than normal - which in turn affects the production of sperm and semen.

Many men lament the fact that they have a micropenis, but others have learned to accept it and live much more comfortably with it. Use of penis sleeves or sheaths can sometimes help a man with a very small penis feel more comfortable with his sexual encounters.

Whether a man has a micropenis, a small penis or a large penis, he needs to keep it healthy. Regular application of a superior penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help. Look for a crème that includes among its ingredients vitamin C, a key component of collagen, a tissue in the body that gives skin its tone and elasticity and is vital for penile erections. The crème should also include vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, which is a vital nutrient required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue.

Healing the Sore Penis After Masturbation Marathons

Most men masturbate. And when they do, they usually have their own unique way of getting the most out of the experience. For some, a quickie is all they need and they are on their way. But for others, a masturbation marathon isn't out of the question - and in fact, might be the norm. While this can be an interesting way for a guy to test his mettle or enjoy long hours of pleasure on a lonely night, the result can be a very sore penis the next day.

So what's a guy to do? Nobody wants to give up masturbation marathons, but nobody wants a sore penis, either. The key here is to know how to avoid a sore penis if at all possible - and if it does happen anyway, knowing how to ease the sore penis skin is a sure way to get a guy back in shape in no time.

Preparing for the marathon

As the old wives' tale says, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That's a saying that rings true for almost anything, and that includes masturbation soreness. By taking a few steps before and during his marathon session, a guy can avoid the "cures" that he might be reaching for if he winds up with a sore penis. Here's what he can do.

1) Load up on lube. Though it can be tempting to try dry masturbation, most men are going to wind up in a world of hurt if they do that as part of an all-day interlude. A guy should start out using lube and continue to do so, reapplying it when it wears away. This might mean using half a bottle or more, but that's okay. Avoiding a sore penis is worth it!

2) Vary the grip. Some men have their masturbation routine down, and that's fine for a quickie now and then. But those engaging in a marathon session might want to take their time and explore new worlds, so to speak. Changing up the grip can avoid too much pressure on one area of the penis, which in turn helps a guy maintain good penis sensation all over his equipment.

3) Remember no pain doesn't mean no damage. When a man is really aroused, he might ignore pain signals - or he might not feel them at all. It's only in the aftermath that a guy realizes he hurt his delicate penis skin. To compensate for this rush of hormones that cancel out the pain signals, a guy should stop periodically to consider what he's doing, and whether he needs to change his grip or apply more lube.

What to do about a sore penis?

So what if the prevention steps didn't work? Then it's time to ease the sore penis. Here's how a guy can perform a little TLC for his favorite equipment.

1) Take some time off. A guy who is feeling the not-so-sweet fruits of his labor should take some time away from sexual activity while his penis has a chance to heal. A few days of no touching should be enough to let the skin heal and rejuvenate.

2) Maintain good penis care. In the meantime, good penis care is essential. A guy should wash gently in the shower, never scrub, and pat the skin dry when he's done. He should also take care to watch any irritations or abrasions on the penis, so that he can tell if they are getting worse.

3) Use a penis health crème. The skin will need a little boost in healing, which can be had with a top-notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). He should look specifically for a crème with Shea butter and vitamin E, which provide not only healing, but plenty of hydration to help a guy avoid the dry, sore penis that can result from excessive masturbation.
