Stan also reminded me that once in a while I should include more than just the "young studs" in my posts.
While all the youngsters are lovely to look at, sometimes we need a reminder that we men may get older but we don't lose our interest in sexual things.
What does happen is that our Testosterone levels begin to wane in our mid-to-late forties. Then blood flow to the genitals diminishes, resulting in boners that no longer quite measure up on the Erection Scale.
As the commercials for Cialis state, "Oftentimes erectile dysfunction can be a matter of blood flow."
But, there are things we can do to stave off, or at least minimize, the effects of aging on our man parts
Kegels. You should begin doing Kegel exercises. Do them every day. This will strengthen the penile anchoring tendons and suspensory ligaments.
Exercise, and healthy diet, of course. But, the old adage "If you don't use it, you lose it" is spot on. Once the hormone rush of our teen years has left, we continue to get spontaneous boners. But, our minds become preoccupied with work and family life and we don't pay much attention to them. Those semi-hard spontaneous erections are still doing their job of supplying the spongeosum tissues with oxygen-rich blood, but they don't fill out as hard.
You can do your future self a favor, though, by deliberately working up a good, solid, raging hard-on at least twice per day - every day to supplement the nighttime boners.
