The Aging Manhood and its Impact on Reproductive Health

When a guy is in his prime of life, it’s hard to even imagine that a day could come when his interest in intimate relations might have died down. Young guys feel “up and at ‘em” on what seems like a 24-hour-a-day basis. But what about when they get older? Society’s perception of older men tends to be one of guys who have much less sensual desire than they used to; worse, the stereotype is that even when they do feet hot and bothered, they often can’t attain the tumescence that they need to satisfy the desire. But is there a basis for this view? Can keeping an eye on proper care have an impact on a man’s aging manhood?

A 2009 article from a noted journal provides a good starting point for looking into this issue. The article states that “biological factors have an indisputable effect on [reproductive] activity among the elderly, but they do not directly determine it.” Yes, aging does have a direct impact on the physical functioning of the male reproductive apparatus, and other indirect health factors, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, which may increase in prevalence among an aging population, can also play a big role.

With information drawn from two national surveys from Finland in the 1990s, the study found that aging men had more intimacy than aging women and that partner activity among aging men depended largely on an individual’s self-esteem, good health and an active intimate history. In other words, those who took care of themselves physically, had a good opinion of their general sensual ability and had been intimately active earlier in life generally continued to be more active later in life.

More recent research

A 2016 study on the quality of life and aging looked at this perceived problem and came up with a different point of view. Analyzing data from more than 6200 men and women from the Midlife in the United State study, the scientists sought to include aging with such factors as frequency of engaging in relations, number of partners, etc. When incorporating all of these factors, aging went from being negatively correlated with sensual quality of life to being positively correlated with it. It was felt that the sensual quality of life of older adults (both male and female) was affected more by the quality rather than the quantity of sensual activity. In other words, aging brought with it a kind of wisdom in which sensual satisfaction had a changing definition for the participants.

More recently, a 2018 article looked at the intimate lives of elderly men and women in Europe, examining about 3800 people in Denmark, Norway, Belgium and Portugal. It concluded that “good health, an active [intimate] life throughout the lifespan, direction of relationship, and feeling emotionally close to partner during [intimacy]” were the major factors for sensual satisfaction among the aging set.

All these studies indicate that, while there may be some changes as one ages, it is quite possible to have a satisfying intimate life in the later years.

One common factor is the state of one’s male organ health, so men should really consistently make use of a top drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The most sought-after cremes will include a wide range of healthy, beneficial vitamins, including A, B5, C, D and E, the topical application of which can more directly target the manhood. Also desirable in a crème is L-arginine, which helps boost nitric oxide production and thereby aids in keeping male organ blood vessels open for increased blood volume.

Red Male Organ – Problem or Good Circulation?

Sometimes maintaining good male organ health can lead a man to some confusion about whether some aspect of his member indicates a problem or not. For example, searching through men’s health sites, one often learns that a red male organ can be a sign of a problem, such as an infection. That’s definitely true, but it’s also important to remember that not every red male organ achieves that coloration due to infection. In many instances, a red male organ may be the result of a healthy circulation system – and that’s a good thing.
The “bad” red male organ

Self-diagnosing can be tricky – which is why consulting a doctor about male organ health concerns is advised. Very often when “red male organ” is listed as negative, it’s referring to a redness which is fairly limited in scope. For example, when balanitis is the cause of redness (almost exclusively in uncircumcised men), it’s generally localized in the head and top of the prepuce. In other instances, the redness may refer to a splotchy rash, which may have any number of causes, and which is generally not a consistent, even redness throughout the manhood.

There can be instances when a member is basically a deep red throughout the organ that indicates a problem – such as a member which has received a sunburn after a day at the nude beach – but more often, when the redness affects the entire manhood, it may in fact be a sign of good health.

The healthy red male organ

Why is that? Because in such instances, the redness is generally occurring during tumescence and is due to good circulation pumping blood throughout the manhood.

As most men know, it’s blood flow to the member that is largely responsible for the physical act of tumescence. (Arousal and stimulation may help to set up the circumstances for the tumescence, but it’s a rush of blood that actually creates the hardening of the organ.)

How much blood does the manhood capture during tumescence? As much as eight times the amount of blood that it uses when the organ is flaccid. That’s why it is so important to keep male organ blood vessels healthy and able to expand fully, so that when the time comes, an adequate supply of blood can fill the member and make an impressive tumescence possible.

And it’s that entrapment of blood which causes the manhood in fair-skinned men to achieve a healthy red glow. (In darker-skinned men, the hue is less often red but there is still typically some change in coloration.) Male organ skin is very thin, so the presence of blood is visibly represented by a reddening of the manhood.

And overall health

So a guy wants to have good male organ circulation in order for his tumescences to be firm. But it’s also worth noting that a red male organ from healthy circulation often means is a sign that a gut’s overall circulatory health is probably pretty good. (There can be exceptions.) By the same token, if tumescences are weak due to circulation problems, it may be a sign that a man’s overall circulatory health may be under par – and should be checked out by a doctor.

Good circulation can be indicated by a red male organ – but in some cases a red male organ may also come about when the organ has been rubbed raw due to overuse or unlubricated use. Applying a first rate male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) can help provide relief. The best creme for this will offer a combination of moisturizers, such as a high end emollient (like shea butter) and a natural hydrating agent (like vitamin E). The moisturization helps heal rawness, and the presence of a potent antioxidant (alpha lipoic acid is an excellent one) helps strengthen the male organ skin against future damage by fighting excess free radicals that weaken the skin.

Avoiding a Sore Male Organ from a Male Chastity Cage

In general, most men like to avoid anything which can produce a sore male organ. One of the reasons a guy pays attention to good male organ care is so his member will not be sore when given the opportunity to go into action. But some men do enjoy certain sensual roles which, while they provide them with pleasure, might also result in a sore male organ. One such situation can occur when a man enjoys wearing a male chastity cage (or similarly male chastity device) around his manhood.
This presents a bit of a catch-22 situation. Many times a man who enjoys having his member bound up in a male chastity cage is also a man who prefers to engage in submissive play as well ,which again can often lead to the member and/or bsacks being manhandled or otherwise inflicted with varying degrees of pain. And indeed, one of the purposes of a chastity cage is to provide pain when the manhood becomes firm. So does a man with a chastity cage actually want to avoid a sore male organ?

The answer varies

There’s no hard and fast answer to this question, but a very general rule of thumb might be that if a man’s experience with a chastity cage is relegated to role playing, rather than to what might be termed a lifestyle choice, he is perhaps more leery of a sore male organ resulting from his experiences. In other words, if a guy likes to spend a couple of hours playing a submissive role to a partner that includes the use of a cage for a couple of hours, he is probably not in the market for a lingering sore male organ experience. On the other hand, if the man does not view his submissiveness as a role he is playing but more as an expression of who he actually is, he may be more inclined to view member pain as a welcome side effect of having his manhood imprisoned in a cage.

Avoiding a sore male organ

So assuming a sore male organ is to be avoided, what are some strategies a man should employ when indulging in limited cage play?

- Only do so with a trusted partner. This goes without saying, but role playing should only be entered into with a willing partner who is “on the same page” about rules.

- Establish keywords. The participants should decide on words to use to stop the game. Otherwise, a partner may assume that a man’s request to be removed from the cage is all part of the fun.

- Limit time in the cage. Some urologists suggest no more than 3-4 hours at one go.

- Choose the cage carefully. Some are designed specifically to produce pain or discomfort, such as those lined with little metal points or bumps.

- Beware of the weight. Although cages are relatively small, they can be relatively heavy – and that extra weight may cause some unexpected soreness.

Many people find that some degree of manhood pain helps fulfill them sensually. Experimenting with this can add to one’s sensual life, but a guy should still take steps to make sure no real damage is being done to the member.

A sore male organ, whether from a chastity cage, over-exertion or other reasons, may benefit from the regular application of a top drawer male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). The best crème will include vitamin C among its ingredients. This vitamin is a key component of collagen, which gives tone and elasticity to male organ skin. The crème should also include L-arginine, an amino acid which is neuroprotective. When a sore male organ results in loss of manhood sensation, L-arginine can help restore lost sensitivity.
