When it comes to giving your lover the sexual pleasure that she’s always wanted, getting a strong and stable erection is definitely on top of your checklist.
But the thing is you’re feeling that your erections are not as hard and intense like they used to.
There’s no need to worry just yet though or perhaps start loading up on artificial stuff like creams and pills.
Chances are you’re simply making the following mistakes that are disrupting your erections…
Erection-Sapper #1: You’re not getting enough shuteye.
I know this sounds a bit crazy, but you’re sure to experience problems with your ability to rise up to the occasion when things get really hot between the sheets.
This is because hormones play a very important role in prepping you up for action in bed. And one of these hormones is testosterone.
Now while the body constantly produces testosterone, modern scientific studies show that a lot of it is made during REM (dream) sleep. And if you’re not sleeping enough, your testosterone levels are going to be significantly affected.
Erection-Sapper #2: You’re drinking too much.
Sure we’ve previously touched on the positive contribution of having a drink or two of your favorite brew in terms of getting strong erections, but overdoing the whole thing will only lead to the opposite.
This is because excessive levels of alcohol in the system won’t just cause a massive hangover the next day.
The part of your brain in charge of sexual arousal will also be temporarily put out of commission, which will make it really tricky for you to get an erection when you need one.
Just keep in mind to have a couple of drinks at most and you’ll be good to go.
Erection-Sapper #3: You’re a regular smoker.
Did you know that you’re getting more than just a dose of nicotine when you’re puffing on a cigarette?
You are also getting a hit of numerous dangerous chemicals like hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide, arsenic, formaldehyde and tar that can wreak havoc with your body’s ability to get ready for sex.
These chemicals can cause a health problem called “vasoconstriction” that can make the blood vessels stiffen up and make it really tough to direct blood to the erectile tissues in the penis to get an erection going.
And unlike indulging in your favorite booze, kicking the smoking habit is the only way to go to prevent weakening your erections.
