Men are on a constant quest to find the holy grail of sexual performance. That is because as they age, men typically lower their sex drives as a result of their dwindling testosterone levels.
Although there is really nothing that you can do to stop this process, there are some things that you can do to improve your condition somewhat. There are male enhancement pills but I recommend that you only take them as a last resort.
In today’s article, I will go over some ways men can improve their sexual performance.
Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
The typical male diet includes 70% protein, 20% carbs, 5% fat, and the rest is for fruits and vegetables. Well, that is not the most ideal portion size, especially if you want to improve your overall health.
If you are really bent on improving your sexual performance, half of your plate should be filled with different fruits and vegetables.
Which vegetables should you pay particularly close attention to? Well, think about adding onions, garlic, cruciferous vegetables like kale and broccoli, bell peppers, chili peppers, and more.
Consider Lean Proteins
Now, I know that the typical ‘man food’ is steak and eggs and although they are rich in nutrients, you may want to cut down on their consumption. You see, a steak is part of the red meat category and eggs are generally okay, provided that you do not consume way too much.
So, what are better alternatives? If you do not like plant-based protein, you can opt for fatty fish like salmon or tuna, kidney beans or peanuts, and 3-5 whole eggs per day (well, eggs are okay to consume in moderation).
Ditch Bad Habits
I’ve worked in the call center industry before and because of the nature of the job, people resort to smoking cigarettes just to cope. That is actually not a really good thing to do.
If you are working in a stressful environment, the last thing that you want to do is smoke or drink alcohol. Instead, you can turn to more positive hobbies such as exercising or playing computer games or whatnot.
Get Some Exposure
Getting exposed to the sun can provide you with a lot of health benefits. For one, it can help stimulate the production of Vitamin D. Second, it reduces melatonin levels in the body- priming you to move. Third, sun exposure (at least not too much) is great for your skin.
Pay More Attention to Your Partner’s Needs
Most often than not, men think about their own happiness. Well, it is great to be happy but what’s even better is if you also factor in your partner’s satisfaction as well.
Penetration is not the only way for your partner to reach orgasm as foreplay and playing with sex toys are also proven ways for her to reach the ‘Big O’.
Masturbation is Key
Believe it or not, masturbation can actually help you last longer in bed. Let me explain. Whenever a man ejaculates- may it be due to sex or masturbation- they undergo what is known as a refractory period where a man’s sensitivity to sexual stimulation diminishes considerably for a good amount of time.
If you happen to ejaculate way too quickly, masturbating two hours before sex can certainly help you in some way.
