Universally, men frequently look for ways to improve or enhance their love life. Next to sleep and what they’re going to eat at their next meal, a man’s thoughts often turn to sexual performance – or lack thereof.
All men aim to be good lovers. Part of being a good lover is having the endurance to make the pleasurable time together last as long as possible. Men having difficulties in sexual performance endurance are usually open and willing to listen to tips on improving this area.
Bedroom performance begins long before the sexual act occurs. The little things you do over the course of a day add up to a big production of fireworks at night.
Instead of relying on unregulated male enhancement supplements or other “sexual aids” lacking scientific evidence, here are powerful tips to make you the man a woman sees not as a good lover but a great one.
Don’t think of this as being vain. Think of it as long-term sex insurance that will be there for you throughout the years. Men who exercise by doing cardiovascular and strength training workouts will not only be healthier but sexier. Regular exercise such as running or swimming improves heart health and wonders for your libido. Strength training is a good way to boost testosterone naturally and boost your self-confidence, which is a big turn-on for women.
Choose foods wisely
Sometimes men may need a little help increasing blood flow to the penis. Without good blood flow, achieving and maintaining an erection will be more difficult. Certain foods can aid in getting the blood pumping to the right areas. These foods include:
- Chilies and peppers – to get things hot in the bedroom, try eating spicy foods. Spicy foods help blood flow by reducing hypertension and inflammation.
- Onions and garlic – these vegetables are known for improving blood circulation. However, don’t forget to brush your teeth before showing your love.
- Bananas – a rich source of potassium, bananas can lower blood pressure which improves blood flow and boost sexual performance.
- Eggs – this naturally good source of protein and high in B vitamins, eggs also naturally balance hormone levels, reducing stress to improving chances of achieving an erection.
Stress can put a damper on your sex life. One way is by lowering libido. When under pressure and stress, your heart rate and blood pressure increase. Few men will feel in the mood when they feel like a pressure cooker ready to explode. Both psychological and physical stress will make it unlikely to lead to being in the mood for love or achieving an erection. Finding healthy ways to relieve stress, such as exercise, meditation, yoga, or simply talking with your partner, can help get the feelings out in the open while finding solutions to reducing it.
Be a good communicator and a good listener
The ability to carry on a good conversation while actively listening is one of the biggest turn-ons for any woman. It’s not all about how much you say but rather about what you are saying. Good communication is a great libido booster for women. Most women love to talk and like someone who will converse with them – they like attention. They also like to be heard, so practicing hearing what they are saying by listening intently will impress them to no end. When women feel they have someone they can not only talk with but will listen and understand what they want, they’ve hit the jackpot of opening the doors to love.
Soak up some sunlight
Do you spend the majority of your day indoors? If so, it’s time to step outside and soak up some sunlight. Spending too much time indoors will only increase the production of melatonin, a hormone that can be a sleep inducer, instead of inducing the desire for sex. Melatonin may help us sleep, but it also squelches sexual urges. Getting outdoors in the sunshine can help wake up your sex drive, especially during the winter when the body produces more melatonin.
Kick bad habits
Bad habits, such as consuming too much alcohol or choosing to smoke cigarettes, can negatively affect sexual performance. While studies suggest that a little red wine can improve circulation, too much alcohol can do the opposite. Stimulants narrow blood vessels and have been linked to impotence. Cutting down or quitting smoking is a smart way to give yourself a sexual boost.
Do your Kegels
Pelvic floor exercises, known as kegel exercises, are used to significantly strengthen a man’s pelvic muscles, which are involved during sexual intercourse. When performed daily, kegel exercises enhance pelvic floor muscles by improving and directing blood flow to the groin, which enhances men’s sexual function and performance. As a result, the increased blood flow to the groin helps men achieve firmer erections, delayed ejaculations, increased pleasure, and the number of orgasms.
