Erection of a man

Love? Does it get up in her pants? What factors control a man's erection? All about testosterone, erection, sex and penis. How to have an iron, honest and strong boner?

No matter how men praise and cherish their reproductive organ, it is not for nothing that there is an opinion that the sexiest and largest organ is located much above the belt - in the head. Only the brain is able to give impulses, creating the necessary mood, the desire for sex, flirting, seduction, it pushes for acquaintances and subsequent actions, makes one reach out to the opposite sex and is responsible for the reactions caused by excitement.

Scientists designate attraction of a sexual nature between people with the interesting word "libido". Combined with eye-pleasing pictures and tactile pleasure, libido awakens the sex center in the brain and causes arousal.

How an erection occurs

And here the trembling heart and rapid breathing are already connected, the pressure jumps. Only then do the centers of the spinal cord “raise” the penis, filling it with blood, increasing and straining it for combat readiness.

The process of erection

Excitation, emotions, the sexual act itself leads to irritation and activation of the head of the penis, then the seminal vesicles contract and finally the seed is ejected, ejaculation occurs and orgasm occurs. Each link in the process is of particular importance. As soon as one of them fails, sexual frustration, dysfunction, and weak erection can immediately set in.

A remedy for constant readiness

For centuries, people have been trying to find a miracle cure that can reward men with eternal libido and the ability to satisfy their woman at any time. In honor of the goddess of love and sensuality (Aphrodite), the word "aphrodisiacum" was coined, which should mean a magic pill / powder / drink of love.

To begin with, it was already joyful that the tonic properties of vitamins and ginseng were discovered. Excitation can also cause dark chocolate and coffee drinks. Someone was helped by certain talismans, which rather had a placebo effect and influenced the psyche of a man. Only the bark of the yohimbe tree, which grows in Africa, turned out to be really effective.

Organ control

It is amazing that a person who is able to control every part of his body even with his eyes closed, being in weightlessness, in a dream, after a series of operations, does not can be sure of how confidently he owns the penis. The ability to manage and command only those muscles that are attached to the bones makes life a little more difficult for a man.

Responsible for the reproductive organ is precisely the muscles located in the uncontrolled territory - in the walls of blood vessels and internal organs. Of course, no one canceled the influence of nerve impulses, but the influence of the will of the owner is a little lost. In the process of excitation, electrical signals are carried along the nerves, impulses affect the “behavior” of the organ, muscles contract and relax.

Structure of an organ

Inside a man's penis there are two cavernous bodies, muscles run along their walls, due to which the organ is able to change in size. At rest, these muscles, like the muscles of small arteries, maintain a state of tone, contracting extremely weakly. Small volumes of blood circulate in them without interruption, but they are not able to bring the organ into an elastic state.

As soon as the right moment comes, the most powerful impulses come to the reproductive system responsible for the reproductive organ, the muscles relax, blood flows to the penis in large volumes, filling its “caverns”. This is how an erection occurs.

As soon as the excitement subsides, the muscles begin to contract again, the blood is squeezed out under their influence, the penis is again relaxed. The order to relax the muscles is received with the help of acetylcholine, the action of which is easily destroyed by a special enzyme.

Erection and age

The very first awakening of the penis occurs in boys 5-6 years old, it has nothing to do with sexual emotions. Then the phenomenon becomes more frequent, especially during puberty of a young man. An erection reaches its peak at about 20 years of age. Then there is a decline, but it can completely disappear at completely different ages. For some, this is 40 years old, and some men are still able to surprise at 90.

Detrimental effect on erection

If you do not want to see a sluggish and incapable organ by the age of 40, stop drinking alcohol. We think it’s not worth talking about drugs, everything is clear here anyway. Dangerous for male confidence and diabetes, prostatitis, hormonal dysfunction, vascular sclerosis. An excess of male sex hormones without a doctor's instructions can also lead to disastrous results. Any strong stress, depression, excitement also make the body be in a calm state.

We are talking about age-related changes, but if you encounter erection problems during the first sexual intercourse, do not worry, this is just excessive arousal or too long foreplay.

Adversely affects sexual ability and lack of balance. Long breaks without sex, as well as everyday intercourse, can affect erections. Of course, all people are different, and everyone has their own norm. But the average 30-year-old man, without harm to health, has sex three times a week. The minimum you need to do is once every two weeks.

Despite the fact that erection begins to weaken by the age of 30, this does not affect the production of hormones, on the contrary, the ability to conceive is at its peak at this moment. But if the hormones are initially not enough, then this can lead to problems with erection.

And finally, physical activity. Moderation does not hurt here either, it will improve erection. Muscular and tired men who abuse training may suffer because of their desire to be healthy and beautiful, no matter how paradoxical it may sound.

It only remains to say about nationality. It is believed that the southern nationalities are able to easily and quickly get excited, but they are unlikely to provide their lady with long sex. What can not be said about northern men. Whoever you are, take care of your health and surprise your loved ones with your unbridled desire and possibilities!
