It’s a familiar trope; a man frolics with his lover in the ocean under a moonlit sky. All is romance incarnate until it’s time to walk back onto the beach. As he emerges like Neptune, proud triton in hand, he notices he couldn’t fight a seahorse with what he’s packing since the cold water and colder night air have shrunk his schlong. Well, this isn’t the kind of male organ shrinkage dealt with here. That temporary, chilly-weather inducing shrinkage is nothing to be concerned with; it’ll be back to full shaft in minutes. However, genital atrophy is a different story. It happens when the member becomes smaller due to a significant loss of genital tissue. Not all genital atrophy is permanent, however, and can often be helped and even reversed. Let’s get the skinny on male organ shrinkage and what to do about it.
What Causes Male Organ Shrinkage?
Genital atrophy can be caused by a number of things, some of them being permanent, and some of which can be changed with lifestyle adjustments. Here are five of the most common things that will make a member into a Shrinky-Dink.
1) Dunlap Syndrome – This phenomenon happens when the belly ‘dun laps” over a man’s belt due to weight gain in the abdomen. While it sounds like a joke, it really isn’t. The member is attached to the abdominal wall, so when the stomach inflates (gains weight), it pulls the member into it, making it appear smaller. A man can get those inches back by losing weight.
2) Smoking Shrinks the Stick – Smoking withers and damages blood vessels in the member, which then prevents blood from filling the member resulting in a semi or no hard-on at all. Think that’s something from the No Smoking Council? It was proved by a study out of Boston University of Medicine that concluded male smokers had smaller members. Ready to go cold turkey now?
3) Medication – Now, take this with a grain of salt because it would be unwise to stop a medication that’s treating an underlying condition to get a few millimeters back. Some prescription medications such as Adderall, antipsychotics, and antidepressants can cause male organ shrinkage. See a doctor to chat about potential options.
4) Peyronie’s Disease – Genital fibrosis, commonly known as Peyronie’s disease, affects over 20 percent of men over 40. It is the buildup of scar tissue that causes the member to extensively curve when hard. Peyronie’s can produce a reduction of both length and girth in the member.
5) Aging – Sorry, but this is one a man can’t really stop in its tracks. Over a man’s lifetime, scar tissue from decades of marathon intimacy and sports injuries can damage member tissue, resulting in male organ shrinkage.
Treating Male Organ Shrinkage?
Here are three ways men can deal with genital atrophy:
1) Get down to a healthy weight. Weight loss, as previously discussed, will give a man some of his length back. It also improves blood flow, which makes the member look fuller and bigger.
2) Quit Smoking. In less than three months, a man can see dramatic results from kicking the habit, and that includes in the trousers.
3) Surgery. Only appropriate for severe cases, men with excessive scar tissue can find help with surgery, but it won’t reverse shrinkage. It will improve sensual performance and feeling, however.
Preventing Male Organ Shrinkage
While a man can’t avoid aging, there are several things he can do to prevent male organ shrinkage. Here are five things a man should incorporate today:
1) Maintain a healthy weight.
2) Practice safe intimacy – both with latex barriers and with caution.
3) Wear a cup or other protective device for risky athletic activities.
4) Have frequent hard-ons to “workout” the member, keeping blood flow regularly re-oxygenating the genital tissues.
5) Use a specially formulated male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) daily to protect delicate genital skin. These crèmes include essential vitamins, amino acids, nutrients, and minerals, which keep the member active, vigorous, and healthy for years to come.
