I'm much, much better today. And I truly appreciate all the comments and emails over the last few days.
So, what's been roiling around in my mind is the way our bodies betray us men as we age. Things which we value so highly begin to ... well, slow down. The prostate grows larger causing a blockage of sorts, halting the ability to fully empty the bladder. The result is needing to piss more frequently.
Yes, it's annoying, but there are several meds available to help, one of which assists us in developing better boners.
But the real culprits of our discontent are The Boys
Not only do they manufacture our swimmers, they produce Testosterone. The lovely, lovely chemical which helps us maintain our virility and vitality. The older we get, the less T they produce, robbing us not only of muscle mass, but our energy. We tend to feel sleepy and lethargic - which is why you hear about old men frequently nodding off.
Now, mind you, there's nothing wrong with a good nap at any age
especially if it's preceded by a good ejaculation
The one thing that does assist us in staving those things off is diet and exercise.
Keeping the body in good shape, keeps the parts functioning better for longer. It's a bit of the old "use it or lose it" school of thought. The more often you put the goods to use, the longer they'll serve you.
