Category 'Male Sexual Health'

Male sexual health is an important aspect of the overall health of a male. It is wise to have regular doctor checkups to ensure that a male’s entire body is in good health. Some teens will have questions about their sexual health, as hormonal changes can cause many changes regarding a male’s sexual organs. When a male teen is going through puberty some changes will occur and should not cause any fear. A male teen may find that they may awaken to a wet bed. This is normal; as a male’s sexual organ may have secretions during the night. In addition, it is quite normal for a male’s sexual organ to become erect upon waking up. This is a natural occurrence and it usually goes away after a few minutes. It actually has nothing to do with sexual thoughts. If a male is sexually active and notices any changes such as colored secretions throughout the day, itching, rashes or toner symptoms, a doctor’s visit is needed. Some issues can be easily treated with medicines. In addition, it is vital to know if a sexually transmitted disease has been contracted. A teen should not feel embarrassed to see a doctor, as doctors see many patients, every day, and are there to help.

Moreover, too many macho males think sex is all that really matters in a relationship; sharing feelings and problems, being tender and caring, doing things together that she likes to do, getting to know each other deeply, etc. are seen too often as silly women’s stuff. These men just don’t get it: good loving is not in the penis, it is in the heart and the mind. If sex were just coming to a climax, then we’d just masturbate.
