There are many things on the Internet we cannot unsee and we’ll carry those images with us for the rest of our lives. Pop ups are the STIs of the Internet, I mean, you’re minding your own business and suddenly you’re told the secrets to having ‘youthful face’ and how a stunning lady on the other side of the world wants to marry you. I guess the worst crime of all must be the penis enlargement ads, because i’m sure some unsuspecting soul out there must have bought the idea and the silly contraption that is on offer. Those inventions that are lurking out there in the big web that promise to improve your sex life are bogus, but it does make me wonder if there are things in the real world that can truly make things better in the sack. So, I decided to do a little research so you, dear reader, don’t have to be clicking away at those silly pop ups.
The sex improvement market is massive (pun intended) and has been around for years. If you think about it, we’ve always been obsessed with making sex more passionate and intense, and honestly this makes perfect sense. For centuries we’ve heard of techniques and diets to increase the libido or even enlarge the penis. Nowadays, there are blue pills, alternative medications, contraptions like previously mentioned, and yes, exercises. In fact, this eagerness fuels the growth of the industry and with it the many scams that may put people in danger.
One exercise in particular drew my attention. Kegel exercises have been known to work for women but now, apparently it is an exercise that men can benefit from as well.
One important thing to bear in mind is that the muscles in the region don’t work the same way as skeletal muscles, which are those attached to the bones for mobility. Instead, the tissue found on the floor of the pelvis is known as smooth muscle. It can be found in the hollow organs of our body, like the digestive system, or even the heart. These relax or expand, helping the organs that rely on them. So, if these particular muscles don’t work the same, how do these exercises work?
Basically, according to Men’s Health, just like the female Kegel, these exercises consist of a series of repetitions where you must squeeze or contract the muscles you normally use to control the stream of urine. You must contract for just two seconds and relax, but the important thing is to pay close attention to the muscles you’re using because, naturally, that movement could involve the muscles of the glutes or hips. So, according to Andrew Siegel M.D. (urological surgeon and creator of the exercise set), these exercises help reduce erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. The explanation is kind of simple. When you have an erection the arteries dilate, making the penis fill with blood, at the same time, the muscles previously mentioned compress, restricting the circulation of this blood until the erection disappears. So if you exercise these muscles you’ll be able to control them, and as a result, you’ll be able to keep the erection for a longer time or even have multiple orgasms, as they claim.
Now, this sounds logical and natural, and doesn’t represent any possible harm. However, there are other websites that offer alternative set of exercises that involve twisting and bending the penis in a quite unnatural way. Others promote machines that you’re supposed to attach to your penis to hang weights and make it “stronger.” If you want to try the Kegel or pelvic floor exercises, as doctor Siegel named it, it’s fine; it might really help you improve your sexual relationships. But if you think that forcing your body in an unnatural way or attaching stuff to it is really a good idea, well… I don’t even know what to say. At the end of the day, every body is different but is important to talk to your doctor and see what they recommend based on your own physiognomy.
