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.




The Refractory Phase   Leave a comment

Ever wondered why as soon as you have ejaculated your manly equipment goes limp? And don’t you just wish you could get it up again and start all over?

This is called the refractory phase, and can take hours or even days before you get another erection. This phase can vary from one minute for a 16 year old to one month for a 90 year old man. Clearly the younger you are the quicker the recovery.

As soon as you have ejaculated two types of chemical messengers are created: adrenaline and endorphins. The adrenaline causes the blood vessels to the penis and the smooth muscle within the penis to contract. Endorphins, the feel-good chemical, provide a feeling of calm and euphoria – which explains why so many guys just want to turn over and go to sleep!

What you need to get an erection is nitric oxide (NO), and the adrenaline and endorphins suppress production of NO until they’re out of the system and the man starts to produce NO once more. The NO relaxes the blood vessels, they widen, and the penis becomes engorged and erect again. Ready for more action.

Interesting, isn’t it?!
