Manhood Facts: Handy Sensual Tips

Just because a guy has a male organ doesn’t mean he knows everything there is to know about it, no matter how much quality time he spends with it. There are many manhood facts – some basic, some obscure – that lots of guys don’t know (although hopefully they know enough basics to keep their manhood health covered). And sometimes those member facts can fall into the area of sensual tips, which is something most guys are interested in. Not that most guys really ever need any sensual tips, of course!

Still, for any guy curious to test his knowledge of manhood facts and sensual tips, the following can come in handy.

•Most guys don’t need huge latex protections. Okay, so all guys like to claim that their members are incredibly massive. It’s just part of being a dude. But it’s important to not let that claim cause a guy to purchase the wrong size latex protection, just to save face. Only about 6% of men need the extra-large latex protections – and if a guy isn’t part of that 6%, he needs to just face up to it. Wearing protection that is too large means it might slip off during sensual activity, or that it will be loose enough that seed might drip out – and that defeats the purpose of the protection.

•Size can be dependent on method of tumescence. Some studies have indicated that a man’s tumescent member will be slightly longer when measured after oral sensual activity or female organ penetration as compared to when measured after simply becoming firm through non-physical excitement. So it may pay to have a little round of oral stimulation before inserting into the female organ.

•The member works all night. Most men average between three to five episodes of hardness while they sleep. This nocturnal workout helps to keep the manhood healthy, working on its tone and elasticity. Men who do not experience nocturnal tumescence may have some sensual function issues, and so should discuss any lack of nighttime tumescence with their doctor.

•The prepuce is rich in Langerhans cells. Langerhans cells, which are more susceptible to HIV, are abundant in the prepuce. This means that intact men need to take extra care (such as wearing a latex protection) to help prevent acquisition of HIV.

•Size dissatisfaction doesn’t always make sense. Many men who believe that their member is too small actually have a manhood that is of normal size – or even larger. It’s important to understand (1) that size matters only up to a point and that the vast majority of men have members that are capable of providing pleasure, and (2) focusing too much of manhood size, especially when one’s member is of a decent size, can lead to sensual dysfunction.

•Smoking is bad for a member. Some studies indicate that cigarette smoking can actually cause the manhood to shrink a little. However, the bigger problem is that smoking can have a bad impact on circulation, making it more difficult for the member to get the amount of blood it needs to achieve and maintain tumescence.

One of the most important manhood facts (which can also double as one of the sensual tips): Guys need to take special steps to ensure their member health. One of the most basic steps is to regularly apply a first rate male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best crèmes will include an amino acid known as L-arginine. This ingredient is a crucial part of the process by which nitric oxide is produced – and nitric oxide plays a big role in keeping manhood blood vessels open so they can accommodate increased blood flow. Also important in a crème is vitamin C, which is a key component of collagen, a tissue in the body that gives skin its tone and elasticity and is vital for member tumescence.
