Alcohol and Sex – Effects of Alcohol on Sexual Activity – Sexual Dysfunction and Alcohol

alcoholism-sexual dysfunction

Definition Sexual dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is broadly defined as the inability to fully enjoy sexual intercourse. Specifically, sexual dysfunctions are disorders that interfere with a full sexual response cycle. These disorders make it difficult for a person to enjoy or to have sexual intercourse. While sexual dysfunction rarely threatens physical health, it can take a heavy psychological toll, bringing on depression, anxiety, and debilitating feelings of inadequacy.

Definition Alcoholism
Alcoholism or alcohol dependence is defined by the American Medical Association (AMA) as “a primary, chronic disease with genetic, psychosocial, and environmental factors influencing its development and manifestations.”

Extended Definition Alcoholism

Alcoholism is characterized by:

  • a prolonged period of frequent, heavy alcohol use.
  • the inability to control drinking once it has begun.
  • physical dependence manifested by withdrawal symptoms when the individual stops using alcohol.
  • tolerance, or the need to use more and more alcohol to achieve the same effects.
  • a variety of social and/or legal problems arising from alcohol use.

Why Does Alcohol Affect Sexual Behavior?

Men and women both are more likely to engaged in casual sexual behavior when there is alcohol involved
Alcohol lowers inhibitions about engaging in sexual behaviors
Alcohol increases perceptions of attractiveness for both men and women, further promoting the possibility of engaging in casual sexual behaviors
65% reported alcohol or drugs being involved in their more recent casual sex encounter

How Does Alcohol Affect Sexual Performance and Pleasure?

For men, alcohol use before sex results in DECREASED

  • penis engorgement (hardness)
  • orgasmic intensity
  • overall satisfaction and pleasure

For women, alcohol use before sex results in DECREASED

  • ability to orgasm (and some women may not be able to orgasm at all)
  • orgasmic intensity
  • overall satisfaction and pleasure

Sex and Alcohol on Spring Break: Some Statistics

  • 26% of males and nearly 36% of females failed to use a condom during sex with someone they met on spring break
  • Nearly 50% of the males and 41% of the females reported having consumed alcohol just prior to sex
  • When asked about their alcohol use in connection with their sexual activities, 49% of men and 38% of women reported having sex as a direct result of drinking
  • 75% of all students reported never or rarely using a condom on spring break
  • Students reported their decision were negatively influenced by alcohol or drug use just prior to sexual activity
  • 74% of males and nearly 88% of females reported never or rarely worrying about STDs/HIV, even though they were at risk
  • About 48% of men and women who had sex under the influence regretted the experience.

STDs and Alcohol

Several risk factors for STDs are common when alcohol influences sexual behavior:

  • multiple sex partners
  • engaging in unprotected sex (in other words, sex without a condom)
  • combining substance use with sexual activity
  • Young adults who used alcohol were seven times more likely to have unprotected sex
  • About 23% of sexually active teens and young adults say they have had UNPROTECTED sex because they were using alcohol or drugs at the time
  • Only 28% of young adults said they were concerned about STDs or pregnancy because of sexual intercourse they had while using alcohol or drugs, even though they were at increased risk
  • Oral sex under the influence of alcohol tends to involve less discussion of safe sex practices than without alcohol, thus increasing risk for STD transmission
  • Young adults who used alcohol were twice as likely to have multiple sex partners, a HIGH risk factor for contracting STDs
  • Substance use can cause biological alterations that place a person physically more at risk for an STD infection because alcohol can impair a person’s immune system and the ability to fight off an STD

Sexual Assault: How Is It Related to Alcohol?

  • 20-25% of college women reported some kind of rape (attempted or completed)
  • At least 50% of college students’ sexual assaults are associated with alcohol use
  • 47% of the sexual assaults reported by college men involved alcohol consumption
  • In 81% of the alcohol related sexual assaults both victim and the perpetrator had consumed alcohol
  • When alcohol is involved, survivors are less likely to name the experience “rape”

Effects of alcohol: sexual dysfunction and dry skin

Alcohol has many effects on the human body, from drunkenness or clouding our mental ability and thoughts to thinning of the blood and possibly lowering the risk of heart attack and other cardiovascular related issues.  But did you know that alcohol will also cause sexual dysfunction in both men and women and varying degrees of dry skin (dependent upon age and condition of skin?  The major school of thought on this evolves around hydration.  Alcohol tends to remove water from the body, reducing its hydration levels and actually results in aging of the body’s various organs.  The body needs water to survive and high levels of hydration for optimum performance.

Two areas that are immediately effected by the drop in hydration caused by alcohol are sexual performance and our skin.  For men, any marked drop in hydration reduces the production of sperm and ejaculate in the groin area.  Studies have shown that a drop in sperm and ejaculate will cause a similar drop in sexual desire and arousal.  A study at Yale University by Dr. Brachman has shown that marked drops in hydration cause an increase in various sexual dysfunctions.  “Men produce lower sperm counts and women tend to have an increase in genital dryness and discomfort.  This leads to a marked decrease in sexual desire for both sexes.”  Alcohol will greatly reduce the actual number of sperm produced and the amounts of ejaculate or semen that are produced.

A study on over 17,000 alcoholic men found that after several years of no alcohol 50% of the men  returned to normal erectile functioning, and the other 50% were either partially or completely unable to get an erection, even when sexual desire returned. Alcohol abuse can also be associated with worsening other physical conditions in the body which again are responsible for causing erectile dysfunction. These conditions are diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. While the anti-impotence drugs like Levitra can take care of your erectile dysfunction even in tough conditions, alcohol has the potential of smothering your passion, possibly even permanently.

So it is obvious that proper hydration is essential to sexual performance, function and human reproduction.  But did you also know that another immediate effect of decreased hydration due to alcohol is dry skin and various related and similar skin conditions and problems?  Yes, any marked decrease in the body’s hydration levels will cause the skin to become less pliable and will slow down its repair mechanisms.  This drop in hydration from alcohol will actually age the skin as it will lead to wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, etc… Your skin needs high levels of hydration and you must drink plenty of water every day to maintain this.  Improper hydration of the skin can lead to or actually worsen conditions such as acne, rosacea, shingles, and many other skin only diseases and problems.

Now, it is important to note that there are many more problems caused by improper hydration (dehydration) through alcohol consumption than we have listed here, but these are two immediately effected areas which will also show a marked regeneration and healthiness when proper hydration is restored to the body.  For proper sexual function and healthy skin it is recommended that one drink 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day and limit alcohol consumption to one drink per day at most.

UK Case Study: In recent years, it’s become clear that as a country, the UK drinks far too much alcohol. UK is now among the top 10 nations of the world for per capita alcohol consumption.

That’s a worrying statistic, because excessive use of alcohol is very bad for your health – and it doesn’t do your sex life any good either!

Fortunately, in the last few years in UK, national alcohol consumption has fallen a little. Nevertheleass, experts are concerned about the fact that many people – and especially the young – go in for dangerous ‘risk-taking’ sexual behaviour when they’re under the influence of drink.

A particular danger is the phenomenon of ‘beer goggles’, a term which has been invented in recent years to describe the way in which a person whose blood alcohol is high can start seeing others as much more desirable than they really are.

A 2009 study in the British Journal of Psychology showed that men who had taken alcohol were attracted to potential sex partners who wouldn’t have been chosen by them when they were sober.

Alcohol affects people’s sex lives in many ways. We can divide its effects into ‘good’ and ‘bad’.

Good effects of alcohol

Small amounts of alcohol oil the social wheels and reduce shyness – thereby making it easier for people to meet up. It also helps a lot of men and women to relax and chat easily with each other.

Similarly, a little wine or a cocktail will often make a person feel romantic – or perhaps less ‘uptight’ about sex.

alcohol-statisticsAlso, a very small ‘dose’ of alcohol can extend the time that a nervous young man takes before he climaxes – thus combating any slight tendency to come too soon or experience mild premature ejaculation (PE). However, alcohol is definitely not a treatment for this condition.
Bad effects of alcohol

Unfortunately, the list of ‘bad’ effects of alcohol is much longer!

  • Alcohol makes people far more likely to have unwise sex with the wrong person – and therefore to get pregnant, to catch infections, and to embark on affairs that cause marriage break-ups. In fact, booze is the main reason why in 2011, there is a massive demand for the so-called ‘morning-after pill’ (the emergency contraceptive) on Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings.
  • Alcohol makes people fuddled, so that they don’t take proper contraceptive precautions.
  • Alcohol is bad for the unborn baby – so it should only be taken very sparingly in pregnancy. During 2008, there have been conflicting reports about how safe it is for pregnant women. Some authorities feel that during pregnancy it should be avoided totally. At present we don’t know whether alcohol taken on the night of conception could be bad for the baby.
  • Alcohol is a major cause of impotence (erectile dysfunction). A lot of younger males don’t realise this because they think that booze boosts ‘horniness’. But as Shakespeare says in the Scottish play: ‘It increases the desire, but it takes away the performance.’
  • A lot of men who are hooked on alcohol develop permanent ‘Brewer’s droop’ – and often loss of interest in sex as well.
  • We do not yet know if excessive alcohol use can cause female sexual problems, but on the basis of probabilities it does seem likely that some cases of diminished libido are due to excessive alcohol consumption.

Hydrocele Causes, Symptoms, Cure and Hydrocele Treatment

hydrocele-treatment-healthpad.info

Hydroceles usually aren’t painful. Typically not harmful, hydroceles may require no treatment. However, if you have scrotal swelling, see your doctor to rule out other causes, such as testicular cancer or other conditions.

What is a hydrocele?

A hydrocele is a scrotal collection of clear fluid (“hydro” = water) in a thin walled sack (“cele” = swelling) that also contains the testicle. Less frequently, due to the common embryological background of male and female gonadal structures, female children or women may also experience a hydrocele. In this case, the sack and connection exist in the labia majora (the outermost and larger of the two labial structures). Because of less potential concern for complications in females with hydroceles, this article will focus predominantly on the male gender. A hydrocele may involve either one side (unilateral) or both sides (bilateral) of the scrotum.

What causes hydroceles?

Embryology
Between the 28th and 36th week of gestation, the testes, associated blood vessels and nerves migrate from the upper posterior abdominal wall adjacent to the kidneys to the lower abdominal cavity and through a tunnel (inguinal canal) into the scrotum. As each gonad exits the pelvic region through the inguinal canal into the scrotum, it is preceded by a thinly lined “sack” called the process vaginalis. Once the testes and associated structures have entered the scrotum, the trailing end of the process vaginalis generally closes off, completely isolating the contents of the abdominal cavity and obstructing their passage into the inguinal canal or scrotum. Should this closure be incomplete and the communication narrow, free fluid in the abdominal cavity (peritoneal fluid) may seep into and through the process vaginalis and collect in the scrotum forming a hydrocele. If the connection is larger and a portion of the small intestine migrates out of the abdominal cavity into the inguinal canal and/or scrotum, a hernia has developed.

What are the physical features and types hydroceles?

A hydrocele is characterized as a non-painful, soft swelling of the scrotum (one or both sides). The overlying skin is not tender or inflamed. There are two types of hydroceles:

communicating, and

non-communicating.

Communicating hydroceles
Communicating hydroceles are present at birth and occur as a consequence of the failure of the “tail” end of the process vaginalis to completely close off. Peritoneal fluid (free fluid in the abdominal cavity) is thus free to pass into the scrotum in which the process vaginalis surrounds the testicle.

hydrocele-symptoms-healthpad.info

A characteristic feature of communicating hydroceles is their tendency to be relatively small in the morning (having been horizontal during sleep) and increase in size during the day (peritoneal fluid drainage assisted by gravity). Actions which increase intra-abdominal pressure (for example, crying, severe coughing, etc.) will also tend to increase the size of the hydrocele.

Non-communicating hydroceles
Non-communicating hydroceles may also be present at birth or develop as a boy matures. In a non-communicating hydrocele the tail end of the process vaginalis has closed appropriately. The fluid surrounding the testicle is created by the lining cells of the process vaginalis and is unable to either drain or be reabsorbed efficiently and thus accumulates. Since this fluid is walled off, the size of the hydrocele is generally stable and does not reflect intra abdominal pressure.

How are hydroceles diagnosed?

The diagnosis of a hydrocele is generally made clinically. An apt description of a hydrocele surrounding a palpable (something that can be felt) testis would be that of a small water balloon containing a peanut. The differences between communicating and non-communicating hydroceles described above help to support the suspected diagnosis.

A bedside test, transillumination, provides confirmation of the condition. Transillumination involves placing a small light source (commonly an otoscope – the medical device used to examine the ear) against the swollen scrotum. The fluid filled nature of the hydrocele side is distinctly different from the non-involved side of the scrotum. In rare cases either ultrasound or X-ray study of the region may be indicated. In unusual cases where a hydrocele may be a secondary phenomenon to pathologic cause (caused by disease), surgical exploration may be necessary to establish the diagnosis.

What is the treatment for hydroceles?

In 95% of congenital (present at birth) hydroceles, the natural history is one of gradual and complete resolution by one year of age. For those lasting longer than one year or for those non-communicating hydroceles that manifest after the first year, surgical repair is indicated since these rarely resolve spontaneously.

What are other non-tender scrotal swelling conditions?

The differential diagnosis (list of possibilities) of chronic non tender scrotal swellings (besides hydroceles) includes:
Hernia: A hernia involves the introduction of a segment of the small intestine into the inguinal canal. A sign of a hernia in the small intestinal region is swelling in the groin alone, or may also include the scrotum on the same side. Many complain of an “ache” or “sense of fullness” during this time. If the small intestine spontaneously slides back into the abdominal cavity or if a physician reduces it, the patient is generally referred to a surgeon for closure of the inguinal canal as a preventative move to preclude a repeat experience.

If the small intestine is trapped and cannot be reduced, this is a surgical emergency and the patient will be brought to the operating room in order to avoid intestinal swelling and subsequent limiting of blood flow to the region, and consequent possible death of the trapped bowel tissue.

Varicocele: A varicocele represents engorgement of the testicular veins and clinically has been likened to a “bag of worms”. While it is a relatively rare finding in the preadolescent, approximately 20% of late teens and adult men have been found to have a varicocele. More common on the left side of the scrotum, the varicocele characteristically “deflates” when the male reclines, and becomes engorged due to gravity when standing.

In the older teen and adult, varicoceles generally require no specific management other than observation. In a younger male, if the varicocele becomes painful, or there is an associated size decrease in the same sided testicle, evaluation with a doctor specializing in urology conditions (urologist) should be sought.

Tumor: childhood tumors of the structures contained within the scrotum are more often benign when compared to those of teens and adults. The most common tumor in this latter age range is testicular cancer. As a response to the notoriety of Lance Armstrong’s battle with testicular cancer, the recommendation for monthly self-testicular exams (especially for teens and young adults who have a predisposition for this cancer) has found a more receptive audience than in the past.

Hydrocele At A Glance

While hydroceles may occur in either gender, they are much more common in males.

A hydrocele is a collection of clear fluid in a thin walled sack present in the scrotum.

Hydroceles may be either one sided or occupy both sides.

Hydroceles are painless, soft swellings and may be either present at birth (congenital) or develop later.

A very large majority of hydroceles present at birth resolve spontaneously by one year of age.

Hydroceles that are not congenital or those still present after one year of age generally warrant surgical correction.

There are other conditions that must be considered when evaluating a boy with chronic, non-tender scrotal swelling. These include hernia, varicocele and tumor. Physical examination is very helpful in sorting through these options. Rarely are diagnostic or invasive studies necessary.

Causes

Hydroceles are common in newborn infants.

During normal development, the testicles descend down a tube from the abdomen into the scrotum. Hydroceles result when this tube fails to close. Fluid drains from the abdomen through the open tube. The fluid builds up in the scrotum, where it becomes trapped. This causes the scrotum to become swollen.

hydrocele-causes-healthpad.infoHydroceles normally go away a few months after birth, but their appearance may worry new parents. Occasionally, a hydrocele may be associated with an inguinal hernia.

Hydroceles may also be caused by inflammation or injury of the testicle or epididymis, or by fluid or blood blockage within the spermatic cord. This type of hydrocele is more common in older men.

The main symptom is a painless, swollen testicle , which feels like a water balloon. A hydrocele may occur on one or both sides.

During a physical exam, the doctor usually finds an swollen scrotum that is not tender. Often, the testicle cannot be felt because of the surrounding fluid. The size of the fluid-filled sack can sometimes be increased and decreased by pressure to the abdomen or the scrotum.

If the size of the fluid collection varies, it is more likely to be associated with an inguinal hernia.

Hydroceles can be easily demonstrated by shining a flashlight (transillumination) through the enlarged portion of the scrotum. If the scrotum is full of clear fluid, as in a hydrocele, the scrotum will light up.

An ultrasound may be done to confirm the diagnosis.

Hydroceles are usually not dangerous, and they are usually only treated when they cause discomfort or embarrassment, or if they are large enough to threaten the testicle’s blood supply.

One option is to remove the fluid in the scrotum with a needle, a process called aspiration. However, surgery is generally preferred. Aspiration may be the best alternative for people who have certain surgical risks.

Sclerosing (thickening or hardening) medications may be injected after aspiration to close off the opening. This helps prevent the future build up of fluid.

Hydroceles associated with an inguinal hernia should be repaired surgically as quickly as possible. Hydroceles that do not go away on their own over a period of months should be evaluated for possible surgery. A surgical procedure, called a hydrocelectomy, is often performed to correct a hydrocele.

Generally, a simple hydrocele goes away without surgery. If surgery is necessary, it is a simple procedure for a skilled surgeon, and usually has an excellent outcome.

Complications may occur from hydrocele treatment.

Risks related to hydrocele surgery may include:

  • Blood clots
  • Infection
  • Injury to the scrotal tissue or structures

Risks related to aspiration and sclerosing may include:

  • Infection
  • Fibrosis
  • Mild-to-moderate pain in the scrotal area

Call for an appointment with your health care provider if you have symptoms of hydrocele (to rule out other causes of a testicle lump).

Acute pain in the scrotum or testicles is a surgical emergency. If enlargement of the scrotum is associated with acute pain, seek medical attention immediately.

Hydrocele – Disease Definition, Description for Students
Definition of Hydrocele
A hydrocele is an accumulation of fluid in any sac-like cavity or duct – specifically in the tunica vaginalis testis or along the spermatic cord. The condition is caused by inflammation of the epididymis or testis or by lymphatic or venous obstruction of the cord.

The term hydrocele literally means a sac of water.

Description of Hydrocele
Scrotal malignancies are rare and of unknown etiology. There are, however, a number of benign scrotal conditions that may present as a scrotal mass and must be differentiated from a malignant process.

A hydrocele is a collection of serous fluid between the two layers of the tunica vaginalis which normally surrounds the testis. This is the most common benign cause of scrotal swelling and has been estimated to occur in as many as 1 percent of the adult male population.

Causes and Risk Factors of Hydrocele
In the pediatric age group, it is usually due to a patent processus vaginalis.

In older men, any process that acts to stimulate increased production of serous fluid (e.g., tumor, inflammation, trauma) by the tunica or decreases the resorption of this fluid (e.g., inguinal surgery) by the scrotal lymphatics or venous system will result in the formation of a hydrocele.

Symptoms of Hydrocele
Men who appear at a physician’s office for the evaluation of a scrotal mass are frequently asymptomatic. It is not unusual to elicit an incidental history of scrotal or perineal trauma, which has prompted self-examination and discovery of the mass. The history of frequency, urgency, and dysuria associated with bacteriuria and of painful scrotal swelling suggests an inflammatory cause. There may also be pain in the groin or testicle.

An accurate diagnosis can usually be made solely on the basis of physical findings. A complete examination of the scrotum – consisting of inspection, palpation, and transillumination – is made in every case.

The presence of erythema and edema with loss of the normal scrotal rugae is suggestive of an inflammatory lesion (i.e., epididymitis or epididymo-orchitis.) In the presence of acute epididymitis, the epididymis is exquisitely tender to palpation and, in the absence of orchitis, easily separated from the normal testicle. Pain is aggravated by standing and should be relieved when the testicle is elevated (Prehn’s sign).

A smooth, cystic feeling mass completely surrounding the testicle and not involving the spermatic cord is characteristic of a hydrocele. A cystic, non-tender mass arising from the head of the epididymis and distinct from the testicle is characteristic of a spermatocele.

Treatment of Hydrocele
When they are small and asymptomatic, hydroceles, spermatoceles, and varicoceles require no therapy other than reassurance. Indications for intervention include scrotal discomfort or disfigurement due to the sheer size of the mass. Treatment options include needle aspiration, aspiration with injection of a sclerosing agent, and surgical excision.

Simple needle aspiration is seldom therapeutic because the cause of the problem is not addressed and the fluid typically reaccumulates.

Excellent results are possible with either surgical excision or needle aspiration combined with injection of a sclerosing agent. Success rates ranging from 33 to 100 percent have been reported.

When intervention is indicated, surgical excision is perhaps the most effective form of treatment. In surgery, the bulk of the hydrocele sac is cut away, and what remains is turned inside out. As a result, the fluid-secreting surface is now in contact with the inner skin of the scrotum rather than that of the testicle with which it made previous contact. The scrotal tissue blots up any fluid that is secreted, unlike the testicular tissue that cannot absorb fluid.

Simplified Summary Hydrocele (Urology)

A hydrocele is a fluid-filled sac that surrounds a testicle, causing swelling of the scrotum. About one in 10 male infants has a hydrocele at birth, but most hydroceles disappear without treatment within the first year of life. Additionally, men — usually older than 40 — can develop a hydrocele due to inflammation or injury within the scrotum.

Hydroceles usually aren’t painful. Typically not harmful, hydroceles may require no treatment. However, if you have scrotal swelling, see your doctor to rule out other causes, such as testicular cancer or other conditions.
Signs & Symptoms

Usually the only indication of a hydrocele is a painless swelling of one or both testicles.

Summarized Hydrocele Causes, etc

Causes

For baby boys, a hydrocele can develop in the womb a few weeks before birth. At about the eighth month of gestation, the testicles descend from the developing baby’s abdominal cavity into the scrotum. A sac (processus vaginalis) accompanies each testicle, allowing fluid to surround them.

In most cases, the sac closes and the fluid is absorbed. However, if the fluid remains after the sac closes, the condition is known as a noncommunicating hydrocele. Because the sac is closed, fluid can’t flow back into the abdomen. Usually the fluid gets absorbed within a year.

In some cases, however, the sac remains open. With this condition, known as communicating hydrocele, the sac can change size or, if the scrotal sac is compressed, fluid can flow back into the abdomen.

In older males, a hydrocele can develop as a result of inflammation or injury within the scrotum. Inflammation may be the result of infection of the small coiled tube at the back of each testicle (epididymitis) or of the testicle (orchitis).

How to Seduce Strangers For Healthy Sex

seduction-healthpad.info

Every men has fantasy of hooking with stranger women;  young or old – places like office, library, bus, train, party hub, bar, conference and more.

One of the biggest mysteries for every man is how to seduce a stranger. Many men believe that women aren’t just women. They feel like we have to know each of them intimately in order to push their buttons. The fact of the matter is that you don’t. You can use the following tools to help seduce a stranger.

Hooking With Strangers in Bar

Hooking With Strangers in Bar

Always give the stranger your name before they can give you their name. Normally you would only give your name out if the woman asked for. This is great way to tell if she’s interested in you. However, since you are taking the chance and approaching her cold, it’s best to introduce yourself first. When you’re trying to seduce a stranger, you want her to feel comfortable in her environment.

Don’t play grab ass. When you first try to seduce a stranger, you are a stranger to them also. Don’t touch them until they touch you first. This could be a slight brush of the leg or a pat on the shoulder.

Tell her why you came over. Playing a game with her and trying to drop hints with metaphors is never going to work on a stranger. You want her to know why you came over to her. This is essential seducing a stranger because it conveys your confidence.

Determine her status. Making an ass out of yourself for no reason is never good. You need to see if she’s single. If she tells you that she has a boyfriend, retreat immediately. She’s not playing hard to get. She’s saying leave me alone.

Don’t run game. You don’t want it to seem like you’re running some kind of routine on her. Seducing a stranger is all about improvisation. Have a little fun, but stay on task.

Expect rejection but don’t show it. A lot of women do not feel comfortable with being approached by a stranger, but some really get off on it. If you plan on getting rejected you can have a plan in place for when she lies about a boyfriend.

Seducing a stranger is not easy, but it can get easier over time. Follow these rules and you’ll definitely see a difference in the way that women react to your approaches.

Interactive Movements

Technique #1: Open Posture
In uncomfortable situations it is typical to keep to oneself. One way this manifests itself is through our posture. When we’re uncomfortable often we’ll cross our arms, touch our face or cross our legs while standing. Perhaps it makes us feel more secure. However, the impression this can give off is very negative. When we cross our arms we give off the impression that we’re defensive, combative, displeased and not ready to talk to anyone. In order to become approachable it is important to adopt an open posture. When trying to pick up chicks, make sure that your arms are by your sides or in you lap and that you are not touching your face. Make sure to avoid crossing your arms and legs.

Technique #2: Smile
Now that you’ve got your posture down and are no longer closing yourself off to others lets add a smile. Nothing welcomes a stranger more than a smile. If someone catches your eye and you show them a smile they will think “Hey, here is someone who isn’t going to rip me to shreds if I go up and approach him.” A smile shows strangers that you want to be friendly. Nothing is more attractive on a man or woman than a smile. So don’t forget to smile, soon it will come naturally!

Technique #3: Sit Tall
When you’re talking to someone sit up and keep straight. This shows that you’re interested in what they’re saying. If you’re sitting back and slouching it shows that you’re not giving the person your full attention and that you are getting bored with what they’re saying. It may be more comfortable and you may be tired, but you’re telling the person that what they’re saying is not important enough to require your full attention. It is a major turn off and people may think you’re arrogant.

Technique #4: Shake Hands
Don’t wait for others to shake hands and introduce themselves, take the initiative. It is important to take the initiative, because if you don’t the other person may be shy and then you run the risk of not being introduced. Then you become reluctant to start talking with the person and you can end up sitting in awkward silence. By shaking hands and introducing yourself with something like “Hi, I’m John Smith. It’s nice to meet you.” You are making a connection with the person and making yourself approachable. The handshake is a non-aggressive way for men to “connect” with women.

Technique #5: Eye Contact
Girls love to look into a guys eyes, so be sure to let them! (They think the eyes are a gateway into the soul or some mumbo jumbo like that.). Maintaining eye contact when talking shows that you’re interested and paying attention to what they’re saying. Nothing is more attractive to a woman. DO NOT stare at their body or breasts no matter what when they are talking. Also, when making eye contact with a stranger across the room, make sure not to stare at them. Give them a look that acknowledges them long enough to make a connection and then go back to what you were doing. Don’t just immediately look away once they look at you. This is instinctive, so it takes a while to overcome. Practice makes perfect! A cool rule is the “45 second rule” Once you make eye contact with a girl, if she looks back at you after 45 seconds you’ve got their interest. Go up and introduce yourself. If you don’t maintain eye contact with a girl while dancing or talking you will find her excusing herself after a while.

So there you have it. Five ways to make yourself approachable. Let’s put it all together. You’re at a gathering of friends. Make sure to use an OPEN POSTURE and SMILE. When given the first opportunity SHAKE HANDS and introduce yourself giving you name. (Make sure to remember *their* name). When you sit down be sure to SIT STRAIGHT UP and be attentive. Finally, when talking be sure to MAINTAIN EYE CONTACT to show that you’re interested in what the other person is saying. Follow these five rules and you should have no trouble finding girls to talk with and they’ll think you’re a genuinely attractive guy.

Penis Size – How To Increase Penis Size Naturally – Without Pills, Surgery Penis Enlargement

Since ancient history manhood endowment is always confused with the potent level or high libido in an individual, the myth is busted recently, but the curiosity to make penis size bigger and thicker is still most pursued by men who take their penis size seriously. Even there are women, who love to offer penetrative or oral sex to bigger penises.

Women Are Curious of Penis Size

Women Are Curious of Penis Size


Average length of the penis of an adult human male ranges from 2 inches to 4 inches (in flaccid position) and 6.5 inches (+/- 1.2 inches) in the erect position. The size of the penis differs also as per the sexual orientation (Homosexual, Bisexual or Straight, with straight men having the average length less than the other two).
Race also determines the size of the penis, with East Asians having the smallest average length while Caucasians have the longest average length.

There is a simple technique, which will help you increase the size of penis:

  • It is called the Power Stretch Technique. It involves squeezing and pulling the penis on regular basis.
  • Breath in deeply when you start stretching your penis, hold the stretch for a couple of seconds.
  • Release the stretch but maintain the grip while exhaling for two seconds.
  • This exercise will increase the size of the penis in both flaccid and erect state.
  • While performing the exercise, if you get an erection, wait till the erection subsides and then continue the exercise.
  • The exercise is best done in the flaccid state.
  • Take caution of not stretching the penis too much and pressing it too hard. Overdoing it may affect local circulation and is harmful.

The penis erection has been a persistent problem for males since ages. It is very important for the males to realize that the penis size is very much dependent on the protein content and also the hormonal levels of the body. In the ancient days, there were many ways in which the people used to increase their potency.

Penis large or small all are driven by the same hormones but it is the amount of the hormones secreted in the body which determines the size of the penis.

There three ancient exercises which are really effective:

  • Jelqing: It is the most ancient form of the penis enlargement exercise that we have ever come across. It was widely in use by the nomadic tribes of the Arabic sands. It involves the milking of the penis and massaging it at the portion called Corpora Covernosa which will make it visibly larger and stronger.
  • Penis Stretching: The penis stretching is one often best ways to get rid of the sexual impotency and increase the penis size. The stretching of the same penis tissues can make you a great sexual mate giving the perfect orgasm to your mates. The stretching helps the elastic sexual gland cells to increase the volume and length.
  • Kegel Exercises: It is an exercise which can help you elongate every fragment of the penis tissues. It can help you elongate the epidermal muscle layers.

Phycholocigal Health – Issues on male sex abuse

No matter how we deny the fact, a growing number of the present male population admit to having been sexually abused in their respective workplace. Defying society’s preconceived notions of male chauvinism, with men as the aggressor, isn’t necessarily what happens in real life. No matter how strong their portrayal of male power is, they too need some protection from workplace abuse and sexual advances. A growing number of male employees are officially seeking for judicial protection and legal option as they openly profess their predicament – being sexual abused.

Male sexuality, because of society’s precepts, is often misconstrued. They think that all males are incapable of being abused just because they are the stronger sex. And it’s just but fine for men to be at the receiving end of dirty talk, suggestive actions and indecent proposal — both male or female proponents.

For its part, the World Health Organization(WHO) defines sexual health as a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Male sexual health, to be properly observed, must be free from discrimination, violence and coercion. Now with this in mind, let us ask ourselves, is male sexual health being observed in an avenue of chronic sexual abuse?

However, according to a recent study, men do have second thoughts in filing a law suit against a female co-worker or supervisors.

There are a lot of male abuses that are being reported nowadays. With this, men are slowly opening up to the fact that they need not to conceal the harsh things that they experienced in the workplace. They are slowly being sex-educated with what they need to know about healthy male sexuality.

Sexual health, as defined, requires an agreement and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences. Men do need to enjoy these acts of procreation. But how in the world would a man enjoy such things under harsh and uncomfortable circumstance? (Yes, men also can feel awkwardness.)

Observing male sexual health doesn’t necessarily only mean the ability to enjoy and engage in sexual activity.  More than that, it is the idea of protecting one’s healthy sexuality within his utmost ability. The sad part is, some male, due to the preconceived notions of male abrasiveness, keep mum about the issue and continue to live their lives as if nothing nefarious has transpired.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Federal agency in charge of administrative and judicial enforcement of the federal civil rights laws, enjoins all male who have experienced sexual advances and abuse to file complaint following first the company’s protocol on such complaints. They also said that if the employer cannot – or will purposely not – act on the complaint, their agency is willing to help you in all means possible.

Men also have the right to seek justice for any sexual abuse that has been done to them. Being open about it doesn’t necessarily make you less of a man, but the idea vigilance further stress the mark of being a man. Keeping mum on the issue wouldn’t help at all. Being vocal about it, however, could call attention and would secure proper and immediate actions to be dished out to you.
