Have A Great Love Life
No Matter What Your Age
Understanding what is going on is half the battle. From there you can work on making the changes that will make your erections and arousal time what you want them to be. This article gives you the what, why and how to get better.
Slower to Arouse
Why It’s Happening:
In midlife, changes in the blood vessels that are responsible for creating and maintaining an erection may slow down arousal time. As a result, it’s normal for most men in their 40s and 50s to need more time or stimulation to achieve an erection than when they were in their 20s or 30s.
What You Can Do:
If your body’s not performing as you’d expect, first take a look at what you’re putting into it. Cigarette smoking and alcohol intake are correlated with erectile difficulties (as are recreational drugs). Certain prescription drugs can impede sexual arousal, too, including tranquilizers, antidepressants, antihypertensives and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories.
Ask your doctor how any prescription or over-the-counter drugs you are taking may affect your sexual functions.
That said, there is nothing “wrong” with slower sexual arousal at midlife. It’s normal for men in midlife to require more genital stimulation to get an erection. You may also require more erotic stimuli, fantasy, sight, sound and smells, but you still experience sexual pleasure.
In midlife, some men may require direct physical stimulation to get an erection, or they may not hit full hardness until they are in place.
While many men take advantage of slower arousal times to pleasure their partners with extravagant foreplay, others choose to start popping Viagra at the first sign of erectile slowdowns. We do not recommend taking the blue pill or others like it for the following reasons…
In theory, Viagra does not enhance normal erections. It is not an aphrodisiac and doesn’t work in the absence of sexual stimulation. It also doesn’t work in every man.
In fact, the drug is only effective for about 70% of all men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction (ED). Less than half of those with severe cases say Viagra has helped restore satisfactory sexual functioning.
Although most Viagra users never experience side effects, some do. These include headache, upset stomach, stuffy nose, flushing skin on face and body, urinary tract infection, diarrhea, and mild and temporary changes in the perception of blue/green colors or an increased sensitivity to light. In addition, no one knows what the long-term side effects of Viagra may entail.
As a drug that dilates blood vessels, Viagra may pose a serious threat to some men with cardiovascular problems. Taking Viagra may be an urgent issue for men who take other drugs that dilate blood vessels, because the drug’s interactions may bring blood pressure dangerously low.
Men who feel they are having serious problems with arousal and sexual response are best advised to see a urologist specializing in male urology.
Why It’s Happening:
There’s nothing physically wrong with someone in his 40s having a softer erection. A patient who reports that he’s having softer erections does not have ED (erectile dysfunction). He’s just having a normal sexual experience for a male in his forties.
Even a midlife man who is always able to get hard enough to do his duty tends to suffer a bit of loss of upward mobility of his penis due to changes in the blood vessels that are responsible for creating and maintaining an erection.
What You Can Do:
Recognize that while erections tend to become less firm in midlife, this never affects sexual pleasure or fulfillment.
Continue taking African Fly 3 times a day to get your erections their strongest level. From there you can manage the dosage according to your needs.
Our studies show that men who exercise regularly elevate their moods and enjoy increased energy. Imagine how an elevated mood and higher energy level could spice up your sex life — as well as life out of the bedroom.
Exercise leads to enhanced alertness, better weight control, loss of fat, replacement of fat with muscle, better immunity, increased creativity, and better quality and quantity of sleep
