Paul Nelson, Member Medical Advisory Board, The Private Gym and Clinical Sexuality Educator (AASECT) shares his top ten tips for better erections.
If It’s good for your heart, it’s good for your penis! Low fat, low carbs, low junk food.
Get rid of the typical man-on-top missionary position. It involves every major muscle group thereby draining blood away from the penis. For maximum blood flow, stand next to the bed with your partner's hips on the edge of the bed.

Stress kills boners! Do some yoga or start sex with a nice massage.
First, buy good condoms…Drug store condoms are usually not great. Get them snug and thin to transfer sensation. Condomania.com has a great sample pack so you can find the right one. They also can make custom fitted condoms.
Sperm can’t survive in our 98.6 degree body temperature which is why the testes are hanging outside the body in the scrotum. A laptop on a lap heats up testes, killing sperm and lowering your ejaculate volume.
Blood Pressure meds, muscle relaxants, and even antacids can hurt erections. But the SSRI antidepressants have long been known to kill libido, erections, and orgasms. Interestingly, however, one antidepressant, Bupropion (Wellbutrin) is a dopamine enhancer. Dopamine is a HUGE part of orgasms. Taking Bupropion can make it easier for many men to orgasm while still treating the underlying issues.
Everyone knows that going to the gym can help with overall sexual health. But not many men know that they can improve sexual performance and health by working out their pelvic muscles. These muscles affect strength of the erection, endurance, ejaculation control, orgasms, and even penis angle. The Private Gym Pelvic Fitness Program For Men isolates and strengthens these important muscles.
Nicotine from any tobacco product constricts blood vessels, depletes oxygen and destroys Nitric Oxide (the boner molecule). A study in the British Journal of Urology proved that quitting tobacco use gave men bigger and fuller erections. Get help to quit smoking and your penis will reward you with years of service.
Ever heard of “Brewer’s Droop”? A little drink like a glass of wine, will help you relax. But too much simply impairs nerves which control your erection. You can’t walk after too many drinks? Think of your poor penis after too many drinks. You’re both stumbling and falling down.
Most healthy men, with a healthy masturbation technique, can masturbate every day and still have perfectly good sex. HOW you masturbate is more important than how often they masturbate. Dry, fast, hard, furious, chafing masturbation will desensitize a penis. Use lube - Organic Refined Coconut Oil is the best sex lube around. It’s edible, odorless, tasteless and it washes out of all fabric.
