Sexual Fitness for Aging Men - Strategies for delaying, minimizing and even reversing andropause.
The journey of men through sexual maturity and aging can be a tumultuous, emotionally-charged string of disappointments for some or a confidence-building, ego-stroking series of satisfying experiences for others. Most men eventually find some degree of satisfaction with a partner they love and live a far more subdued sex life than in the days of youth. But eventually we notice that interest in sex starts to diminish and the machinery doesn't work as well either. This can a strangely mixed blessing or ironic curse depending on the appetites of the partner. For men, the decline of desire, performance and satisfaction can lead to a wide array of responses, some constructive, some destructive, altering our relationships and lifestyles.
Many men respond by trying to find more exciting stimuli; affairs, prostitutes, S&M, pornography - the fabled mid-life crisis is often driven by the emotions of dealing with this decline. Others handle it more wisely, channeling remaining sexual energy into efforts, hobbies, projects or ventures where a sense of accomplishment can be achieved. Our goal is to find the information to moderate, minimize or even reverse this functional decline if we desire to do so.
Many factors affect the male sexual mindset, libido and ability to function sexually. Sexual desire is largely a function of free-testosterone levels; the more you have, the more you think about sex, but many other factors are involved including stress, fatigue, thyroid fuction, disease and emotional well-being. The ability to perform sexually depends primarily on blood flow to the penile vessels, but there are neurological factors and prostate health involved in achieving satisfying orgasms. Products for enhancing sexual experience on the market today focus primary on improving blood flow to the penis and boosting testosterone levels. Happily, many of these products work fairly well, and can extend our sexual vitality for decades - how's that for positive thinking! Also, the right kind of exercise builds testosterone levels and improves circulation. Starting an exercise program is one of the best ways to improve both sexual desire and performance.
