Explosive Erections   Leave a comment

We all know that nitric oxide relaxes the spongy blood vessels within the penis, allowing increased blood flow and creating the erection. And we all know that Viagra, first designed to treat angina pectoris (chest pains), was accidentally discovered to increase blood flow to the penis as well.

Well, now doctors at University Hospital, London, have published a study in the Journal of Sexual Medecine, uncovering a remedy designed to treat arthritis (containing nitro glycerin) that when rubbed into the male genitals, had the same effect as Viagra. Better still, it worked up to 12 times faster – only 5 minutes waiting time for some!!

In case you didn’t know it already, nitro glycerin is a highly volatile explosive.

But here’s a warning: Viagra, and other nitric oxide donors such as amyl nitrate (known as “poppers”), are PDE 5 inhibitors and should not be used with nitro glycerin gel or spray; the combined effect of the two types of inhibitors are likely to lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. And, unless you have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction (ED), neither product is going to benefit you.

ED can be attributed to many causes and hit men at any age, but increasingly beyond the fifties.If you think you might benefit from chemical help, consult your doctor.

Happy love-making.

Feeling old and wrinkly?   Leave a comment

Researchers at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital tell us that regular sex can prevent lines and wrinkles.
People in their forties who had sex two or three times a week were judged to look seven to thirteen years younger – probably down to DHEA, a hormone released during sex that can increase collagen production.
You heard it here; stay young and beautiful; no excuses now!
Happy love-making

Want to get pregnant?   Leave a comment

Research shows that lying on your back after sex won’t increase a woman’s chances of conceiving.

In a study last year by VU University Medical Centre, Amsterdam, women having artificial insemination were told to stay in bed for 15 minutes, or get up immediately – the latter became pregnant more easily!

The researchers said there was no reason to stay in bed for longer than it takes to ‘get your breath back.’

You can read how fast sperm swim and how long it takes to travel from the man’s ejaculation to penetrating the female egg, and all the struggles it has to face on its way, in Exploring Sex, Love and Lust.

Happy love-making.

The Wrong Blood!   Leave a comment

For a study carried out for Ordu University in Turkey, researchers took blood samples from 350 men in their sixties and split them into two groups according to whether they had erectile problems.

The results revealed men with types A, B, or AB were three to four times more likely to flop in the bedroom than those with blood type ‘O’.┬áJust 16% with O blood types had problems, compared with 42% of those with A blood types.

Happy love-making, whatever your blood type!

Sexy Brains   Leave a comment

Having sex more often improves brain function!

Those who keep their sex life active right through to their golden years were found to have improved fluency and spatial skills, helping in old age, a study by Oxford and Coventry Universities found.

Sex, as I’ve described in my book, Exploring Sex, Love and Lust, releases the ‘feel good’ hormone dopamine into the brain, helping with complex mental tasks. Lead author, Dr Hayley Wright, said: ‘This study shows that more sex at an older age is linked with better brain power …. it is a reminder that it is important to maintain intimate relationships as you age.’ She went on to say, ‘There is still a taboo, where older people don’t want to talk about having sex, and some people don’t want to think about it, but this shows it could be very positive.’

Researchers at Coventry University, in a previous study, found having sex improved older people’s memory – but didn’t look at how often participants had sex. The updated study, published in the Journals of Gerontology, Series B, and reported in the Daily Mail in the UK, asked 73 people aged between 50 and 83, how often they had sex in the previous 12 months – either not at all, or monthly, or weekly.

In tests of their brain power, those who had sex weekly scored 2% higher than those who did every month … and their cognitive abilities were 4% better than those who had been celibate for the past year.

So, clearly, if you want to keep the old brain cells going well into old age, you need to keep up the frequent sex!

Happy love-making,

Good News from Italy   1 comment

Reported in international news today was research on 7,000 men, over 4 years in the Molise region of Italy confirmed that drinking three strong coffees a day cuts the chances of prostate cancer by more than 50%.

Study leader George Pounis, of the Mediterranean Neurological Institute, said: ‘By analysing their coffee consumption habits and comparing them with prostate cancer cases occurring over time, we saw a net reduction of risk of 53% in those who drank more than three cups a day.’

The team confirmed their findings by testing the action of coffee extracts on prostate cancer cells in laboratory studies.

In the UK, prostate cancer in men is the biggest killer after breast cancer in women.

If you’d like a copy of the full report, let me know and I’ll send it to you.

Happy love-making – and survive cancer!

The Wrong Blood   Leave a comment

A study shows that men with blood type A, B or AB are up to four times more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction than men who have blood type O.

It doesn’t alter the fact that smoking, being overweight, and having high blood pressure are thought to be the most important factors, however the study carried out by Ordu University in Turkey suggests your blood type may be as influential.

Researchers took blood samples from 350 men in their sixties and split them into two groups according to whether they had erectile problems. The results revealed men with blood types A, B or AB were three to four times more likely to fail in the bedroom than those with blood type O.

Just 16 per cent with O blood types had problems, compared with 42 per cent of those with blood type A.

If you’re having problems, get checked out – there is help out there.

Happy Love-Making
