Men: How to maintain Sexual Health throughout your life

Male sexual health is not only the absence of disease. Optimal male sexual health includes sexual desire (libido) and the ability to act on this desire through getting and sustaining an erection (erectile function).

Many men start to think about sex early in life and will still think about it in their last days on earth.  Sex is an important part of life.

It can be seen as just another hormone-driven bodily function to keep the species going.  On another level, it is known to be a pleasurable activity and can help seal the bond between two people.

A lot of factors can play an important role in both the desire for sex and the ability to have sex.  Physiology, mental health and emotional factors can all play important roles in sexual health.

Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and maintain an erection long enough for satisfying sexual activity.  The probable causes for erectile dysfunction are numerous but can include, stress, depression, relationship issues, low testosterone and even cholesterol clogged arteries.

Where most erectile dysfunctions can be treated with male enhancement products, it is still better to make sure what the cause is.  Through treating the cause, the problem might clear altogether.

Ways to improve sexual health through looking after yourself

What is good for your heart is good for your sexual health.  Make sure that your circulatory system works in top shape.  Keep in mind that your sex organs work on blood flow and blood pressure.

Stay active.  Sex might get your heart rate up, but through regular exercise, you can help your sexual performance by keeping your heart in shape.

Reduce stress.  Stress causes a lot of negative reactions in your body.  It increases your heart rate and blood pressure, both of which are damaging to your sexual health.  Exercise is a good way to reduce stress or talk to your partner about the stress.  This might calm you down.

Sexual performance declines naturally in ageing men, but a rapid or severe decline in libido can be an early warning sign for other illnesses.  There are links between sexual and overall health that can send a red flag as a warning sign for bigger issues and health concerns.
