A hot tub can be a great place to relax and unwind. After a bracing workout at the gym, spending time in the hot tub can feel great on sore muscles. During the summer, spending time in an outdoor hot tub with a refreshing cool drink at hand can be the perfect way to end a barbecue. But are there any potential male organ health issues that can arise when using a hot tub? In some cases, yes, and these tips can help a man use a hot tub with fewer male organ health concerns.
â€¢Watch the jets. When using a private hot tub, itâ€™s not uncommon for a man to slip out of a swimsuit and enjoy the experience in the buff. If heâ€™s alone and feeling frisky, he may decide to see just what effect those pulsating jets have on his member. Doing so does pose a potential male organ health risk, although if he is careful and explores this option in moderation, the risk is lessened. Itâ€™s key to keep a little distance between the jets and the member and to not spend too much time letting the water pound the organ. Too much time spent in this way could cause some tiny tearing of manhood tissue. And under no circumstances should a man attempt to insert his member into the jet opening, even if it is currently turned off.
â€¢Be sure the water is clean. Hot tubs come with specific instructions on how they should be maintained, and those instructions should be followed scrupulously. Bacteria love the combination of heat and water, so making sure appropriate amounts of chlorine are used to keep bacteria at bay. (Avoid too much chlorine, as this can damage the skin on the manhood and elsewhere.)
â€¢Watch the heat. The temperature also shouldnâ€™t be too high, as excess heat is bad for delicate male organ skin and can dry it out. In addition, spending too much time in a hot tub can in some cases affect male seed production â€“ although in most cases, this is a temporary issuer rather than a lingering male organ health concern.
â€¢Stay hydrated. Though not specifically a male organ health concern, anyone using a hot tub should be sure to stay hydrated. That means keeping fresh water close at hand and taking a few sips regularly.
â€¢Approach coupling with caution. Many couples enjoy getting it on in their private hot tub. Doing so does require extra caution, however, not least because hot tubs can be slippery. Finding the right position can take practice, and fitting on a latex barrier can be challenging. (Some people believe that the chlorine in the hot tub will kill any male seed, but male seed that is inside a womanâ€™s body may not be affected.) Also, be aware that if the hot tub has started drying out the manhood skin prior to initiation of coupling, some rawness and discomfort may result.
â€¢Shower. Itâ€™s a good idea to take a shower after spending time in a hot tub in order to rinse off excess chlorine which may otherwise damage sensitive member skin.
Maintaining male organ health when using a hot tub is easier when a man already includes a quality male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) as part of his daily manhood hygiene regimen. When dealing with a hot tub, caring for the male organ skin must be considered. Therefore, choose a crÃ¨me that has a combination of highly effective moisturizing agents, such as shea butter and vitamin E, to help rehydrate worn member skin. The crÃ¨me should also include pantothenic acid (commonly called vitamin B5), which is required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue.
