If you’re anything like most men, you probably want to get ready for action between the sheets as soon as you and your lover get frisky in the bedroom.
But the problem is you’re just finding yourself not rising up to the occasion as quickly as you used to these days. There’s no need to worry just yet though. Here are a few reasons why it’s taking longer for you to get rock hard fast…
You don’t exercise regularly.
Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think, sweating it out in a regular basis shouldn’t be exclusive to health buffs. You should have exercise on your daily checklist of activities if you’re looking to keep on getting a stable erection in a snap during sexual arousal.
Apart from helping optimize blood flow that plays a key role in firming up the erectile tissues in the penis, making it a habit to exercise vigorously at least 15 minutes every day also keeps channels like blood vessels, veins and arteries supple and flexible.
When these blood channels lose their elasticity, blood won’t just have difficulty flowing to the parts of the body where it should go. They can also be extremely vulnerable to plaque that can clog them up and even put you at risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke sooner or later if not dealt with properly.
And one of the biggest reasons why blood vessels, veins and arteries lose their elasticity? Lack of exercise.
You drink and smoke too much.
Now while there have been studies that prove moderate use of alcohol can improve heart function and blood circulation in the body, simply guzzling the stuff frequently can lead to negative effects to your sexual performance.
When consumed in excessive amounts, alcohol becomes a vasoconstrictor, which basically means that it will make the blood vessels tighten, significantly affecting the way they allow blood to flow through them.
And if blood doesn’t get to their “destination” when things get hot in the bedroom, chances are you will have a hard time getting an erection or perhaps won’t get one at all.
Smoking causes the same negative effects to the blood vessels as well. Compared to alcohol though, it doesn’t have any health benefits and will only lead to serious health problems in the long run.
You love eating oily and salty foods.
Now while I am not saying that indulging in your favorite salty and oily treats is already bad, keeping in mind to limit your portions moderate and reasonable is a must to keep getting rock hard on demand.
Having excessive levels of fatty oils and salt in the body already makes you very vulnerable to hypertension, a disease that can spike up your blood pressure levels and make achieving erections a challenge.
Plus, these foods also make you feel tired at the least amount of physical exertion, which can ruin your sexual stamina at the same time.
