In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a new favorite male performance supplement in town. Male Ultracore, the new brand of male performance that seemed to pop up from nowhere, is the new king of male performance supplements. As predicted by our experts, the best products are meant to be replaced by something even better, and now the time has come for Male Ultracore to take its rightful spot as the top male performance brand.
We’ve been planning to write about Male Ultracore for several weeks now, but as you know, it takes a good amount of time to fully evaluate a product for ourselves. It’s been a while since we’ve reviewed a supplement of this quality, and we want to make sure that we do this right.
In order to conduct an objective review of Male Ultracore, we first had to be free of any effects from the supplements that we usually take. As you know, we love our male enhancement pills, and putting them aside for a month is a huge blow to our sex lives. But it has to be done in the name of science. We opted to make our reviews as objective as possible, since many of our readers take our recommendations, especially with male performance supplements. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at Male Ultracore and see exactly why thousands of men choose this brand over the hundreds of other male performance brands in the market today.
What you need to know about Male Ultracore
Male Ultracore isn’t your garden variety male performance supplement. Unlike most pills, it doesn’t claim that it can increase penis size, although its ingredients may suggest a size benefit, it outright claims that all it does is increase your sexual performance by boosting your libido and testosterone.
It’s one of the few male performance pills that actually discuss the course that your body will take once the pill is in full effect, which is quite rare, given that majority of the pills in the same niche opt to make vague claims to put themselves at a safe situation with their customers.
Male Ultracore is also one of the few brands that offer a real money-back guarantee. They let their customers evaluate the product up to 90 days and see if it meets their expectations. If you’re not completely satisfied with the product you got, you can call them directly and ask for a refund, it’s that simple.
While all of these qualities are great in male enhancement supplements, many would still expect a size boosting effect from Male Ultracore. If we are going by what they claim to their customers, Male Ultracore isn’t for men who are looking to boost size, BUT you can stack it with your penis enlargement pill of choice and enjoy the benefits of a boosted libido and performance, combined with a significant size increase.
The Science Behind Male Ultracore
If you’ve read any of our reviews, you’d know that we are big when it comes to the science behind the supplements. We simply don’t let any supplement get away with false claims and fake formulas. We test the science behind the supplement to see if it can really produce the results as they say it would.
We first studied the science behind Male Ultracore to learn the concept behind the product. If we’re going by the clinical tests, we can definitely say that the libido-boosting complex of Male Ultracore is one of the best that this industry has ever seen.
The idea behind Male Ultracore is the use of testosterone-boosting ingredients to enhance free testosterone production. On its own, testosterone-boosting ingredients are already highly-effective given that it enhances libido almost instantly after taking your first dose. However, it is also important to note that taking testosterone-boosting ingredients means that you would also have to deal with the compounds derived from testosterone, such as estrogen and estradiol.
Estrogen and estradiol are the reasons why men who take testosterone replacement treatments develop man boobs or gynecomastia, since estrogen is derived from testosterone through the aromatase enzyme. Male Ultracore has an intense blend of testosterone-boosting ingredients and it caps it off with an aromatase enzyme inhibitor to improve testosterone retention and intensify the effects of testosterone in the body.
Male Ultracore also contains PDE-5 inhibitors which mimic the effects of the popular blue pill. The combined benefits of libido boosters and PDE-5 inhibitors would turn any man into the ultimate sex machine, especially if they take the pill as intended.
Our experience with Male Ultracore
First 2 Weeks
The first week of Male Ultracore was a little bit underwhelming. Like many other male enhancement pills, nothing really happens on the first week, and we expected it from Male Ultracore. However, it is interesting that two of our volunteers reported a significant boost in his libido when he had the chance to have sex. It is noted that during the first week, only 2 of our 5 volunteers got the chance to have sex, and they both experienced a significant libido boost. If we are going to interpret this scenario, we are inclined to believe that Male Ultracore doesn’t induce awkward erections like most aphrodisiacs do, but it keeps your body prepared for sex regardless if you’re not having sex.
By the third week, almost everyone who volunteered had experienced an improved libido and performance. We were so used to the effects of Male Ultracore that we noticed that it boosted our confidence in the bedroom. It’s also important to note that the increase in libido wasn’t like an uncontrollable sexual urge, it was more getting in sync with what your body wants to do during sex, and it became such an unexplainable, sexually-satisfying experience.
Male Ultracore INGREDIENTS
See what’s inside every Male Ultracore pill
Our favorite Asian herb – Tongkat Ali. We mentioned in one of our reviews before that we wouldn’t take any aphrodisiac blend seriously if it doesn’t contain Tongkat Ali – it’s just that impactful in any supplement formula that you’d put it in. Tongkat Ali is an all-in-one ingredient – it boosts libido, improves erections, and it maximizes your stamina.
L-Arginine is common in bodybuilding supplements that aim to boost pump and recovery. It acts as a precursor to nitric oxide, which is responsible for improving your blood flow. Many erectile dysfunction cases are caused by poor blood flow, and L-Arginine works to eliminate blood flow problems.
Tribulus Terrestris is the ingredient that is responsible for prolonging the effects of testosterone in the body. It synergizes perfectly with the testosterone-boosting ingredients such as tongkat ali and horny goat weed. Tribulus Terrestris inhibits the aromatase enzyme to prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.
Horny Goat Weed
Horny Goat Weed is one of the most efficient aphrodisiacs in the market today. It has been used for centuries as an aphrodisiac, and modern technology turned it into the ultimate testosterone booster. Its main extract, Icariin, is responsible for all its testosterone-boosting capabilities. Male Ultracore contains a 60% Icariin extract from Horny Goat Weed, which is the purest extract that you can get from HGW.
Maca is an important ingredient in the formula since it helps maximize your stamina. It also helps eliminate the risk of premature ejaculation by improving your control over your sexual satisfaction. Maca Root inhibits oxytocin and prolactin, which controls your arousal after experiencing an orgasm.
Muira Puama is the ingredient responsible for Male Ultracore’s fast-acting capabilities. Thanks to Muira Puama, Male Ultracore can be absorbed in minutes, and be effective in less than an hour. Muira Puama kickstarts the formula by acting as the first aphrodisiac and PDE-5 inhibitor absorbed by the body.
Damiana Extract is well-known as a study aid and cognitive enhancer. Its role in the formula is to enhance the sexual pleasure that the user feels when having sex. Its combination with strong aphrodisiacs further enhance the pleasure that a user experiences when having sex.
Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa acts as a booster for the other aphrodisiacs in the formula.
Butea Superba synergizes with Muira Puama to produce intense results in the first minutes after taking the first dose.
Male Ultracore definitely changed the way we thought about male enhancement supplements. A size boost is good, but it’s not everything that you need to improve your sexual performance. If anything, Male Ultracore would make you a better sexual performer than any other penis enlargement pill.
We’ve tried plenty of other male performance pills, but Male Ultracore is definintely on a class of its own. As men who review supplements for a living, we can honestly say that it’s better than anything that we’ve ever tried. Taking Male Ultracore daily is like going back to your young adult years when you had the energy and passion for sex. The only difference is that you now have the experience and the know-how to make yourself an even better sexual partner than you ever were.
When it comes to spanking, I’m sure you’ve done your fair share of it with one woman or another. I mean, even if you haven’t, you must’ve at least tried it once or twice. Either way, whether you’ve tried it or not, let this scene play out in your head:
You’re in the middle of having face down ass up sex, when you have this sudden urge to spank her rear end hard. Now, the two of you haven’t talked about this prior to today, but you figure it’ll be fine, so you go for it. Hell, you’re in the moment and so is she, maybe she won’t mind. However, once you spank that booty, your girl automatically feels uncomfortable, pulls you out of her, and walks away towards the bathroom mirror to check out the print you left on her. She comes back into the bedroom and explains that that’s not what she wants during sex, and that it’s unacceptable to not talk to her about things such as this before acting on them.
Now, what did you do wrong in this situation? You didn’t communicate with her before going full-force into spanking territory. This is a huge no-no for some girls and a huge yes-yes for others. In order to know what kind of girl you’re dealing with, you should always talk about the matter before taking matters into your own hands.
While some women think it’s extremely painful and disrespectful, others feel as if it’s sexy and a huge turn on; Some take it to the point of where it is a fetish for them. In fact, it’s one of the most popular fetish’s out there today. I’d like to advise you, though, that a woman probably will not let you spank her unless she 100% trusts you, so I wouldn’t bring the topic up if you guys just started dating.
Anyways, I’m going to give you a few steps to follow before you start spanking your partner (or before they start spanking you). Let’s make this experience as safe and sensual as possible.
Always talk about it beforehand.
As I’ve stated above, spanking usually just happens in the moment and out of the blue. However, I would highly advise to not do this, and instead to talk about it before you think you’ll do it. In addition to talking to your partner about it, you might want to come to some sort of solution regarding the matter. This could range from not doing it at all to doing it all the time, and even to negotiating certain times where it’s acceptable.
The key here is to just be respectful of one another by always talking it through.
Your partner may not be into this kind of kinky stuff, so make sure you’re okay with that.
Spanking may be something you like and may be something your partner does not like. Sometimes, it can even trigger your partner in such negative ways, that they won’t feel comfortable having sex with you for quite some time. You don’t want this to happen. Especially if your partner has experienced some abuse in the past or even if your partner associates danger and violence with spanking.
So, try to be okay with the answer your partner spits back at you; Don’t become hostile if they aren’t willing to abide by your spanking desires. Allow your significant other to think through their thoughts and come back to you with their decision. And once the decision is made, understand and accept it.
Don’t bring the topic up as if it were a demand; Bring it up as if it’s a casual topic the two of you can talk about.
Okay, before you think it, I’ll say it: Spanking is not an easy topic to bring up. I know, I get it, believe me. However, there are ways to bring the topic up without either of you feeling uncomfortable. For example, try to bring it up when the two of you are being sexy towards one another or when you’re in a sexual setting, such as a romantic night out or a make-out session on the couch. And, say something along the lines of, “I can’t stop fantasizing about running my hands all over your body. I’d even like to give you a little smack on the butt if you’d like me to.” Get creative with it!
Put everything out on the table, including your expectations. And make them clear.
While you’re talking about the possibility of incorporating spanking into your sex life with your partner, you should also probably make your expectations clear. For example, what one person may see as a small love tap, another person may see as painful and unbearable. Be sure to know what your partner is comfortable with and be sure to tell your partner what you’re comfortable with.
If you’re having difficulties determining what’s too hard or too soft, use the point scale system. For example, slap a little on the softer side and ask your partner to rate the spank. If they say to go up or go down, change your spanking accordingly.
Always start slow and don’t overdo it.
Once you’ve both agreed on how hard or how soft to spank, it’s easy to start spanking during sex. Even though this may be true, you should still start off slow with your partner, especially if they’ve never done this before. My suggestion would be to spank the booty, and then slowly rub or caress it. You can also rub or caress the inner thighs to make your partner feel more comfortable and turned on.
Tip? If you’ve agreed to spank hard, save those for when you or your partner (whoever’s getting the spank) is about to orgasm. When you’re reaching the brink of orgasm, you’re pain threshold is higher, so this will work in your favor.
Lastly, throw some sex toys in the mix.
Pick and choose these according to your preference. With sex toys and spanking, you’ll be on your way to an entirely new sex life in no time (if you and your partner agree to it).
By Jenny Lyn
When it comes to sex, men and women approach the topic as differently as two people possibly can. If you’re in a new relationship, it can feel like getting a new car, only to find it a stick shift, whereas you’ve only driven gear shift all your life: you’ve made it so far as to actually get in comfortably, but now you have to relearn almost everything else.
No two women are alike in how they communicate, especially in how they communicate they’re ready for sex. Every woman has a different time where they’re ready, and a different means and approach to informing you. However, there are patterns that are common across most women that can give you a good idea as to what they want. So if you’re a man who’s entered a new relationship with a woman, and you want to know when the right time is to start introducing sex, here are the most common signs women tend to employ to let you know they’re at least ready for the topic to be brought up. This article will focus on straight couples, as same sex couples and how they communicate is an entire article in itself.
She invites you to her house
Just to be clear, this is not an instant indication that she wants to jump in bed with you, necessarily, but it’s definitely a clear sign that she feels comfortable enough around you that she’s willing to be alone with you. It’s a definite sign of trust, of her saying that she’s willing to be alone in an empty house with you for the night. And if she wants to have sex, the other signs on this list will not be too far behind this one. Remember to keep taking it slow and respect whatever boundaries she may still have, whatever they may be. She’s putting a lot of trust in you by doing this, so keep that in mind.
She’s comfortable with other physical activities
This includes cuddling on the couch or in bed, kissing in public, or just leaning against you while watching TV Women on average take a while to get going when it comes to arousal, needing to be comfortable partaking in less sensual but no less romantic physical activities before they’re ready for the big one. And like the introduction said, this may take one night, it may take months. It depends on how serious the two of you are taking the relationship, and on what type of person she is. These small actions are a great first step towards further intimacy, showing that she’s willing to be held and kissed by you, and that soon, she’ll be open to the rest. As always, the key is patience.
She lets you into her personal life
The clearest sign that you’re getting closer to a woman is she starts introducing you to her family and her personal life. It shows she’s confident that you’re not going anywhere anytime soon, and that she can start letting down her walls and let you into her life.
As odd as the practice seems at face value, this is why a common ritual among couples is for them to meet their parents or siblings. It’s a sign of confidence and trust that their family will accept you if this relationship goes further. This should also be around the time you show her to your family, and start letting her in on any personal baggage you may have. Obviously your mileage may vary depending on said baggage, but if she’s opening up to you, it’s a sign of willing vulnerability that you should at least reciprocate somewhat as a sign that you also trust her that much.
She starts licking her lips a lot
Maybe you like a woman who loves to take the initiative, showing you straight up, on no uncertain terms, that she wants to jump your bones. One seduction method women often employ is licking their lips whenever they look at you. A lot. This habit is very hard to fake, and is not done this much by accident. It’s a subconscious response used when they’re undressing you with their eyes. And if they pair this practice up with the next entry on this list, it’s a guarantee that she’s sending you deliberate signals.
She starts wearing sexier clothing when you’re alone
So you come over to her house for Halloween movie night. She tells you to go ahead and put the movie in, while she’s getting ready. When she comes out, she’s wearing a lacy nighty that would barely qualify as a shirt, let alone a dress. She acts like nothing is wrong, but you sense this coy tone in her voice, a wryness that suggests she knows exactly what her outfit is doing to you. This will probably be paired up with her doing things that she’s figured out by now are your turn ons (if you think she doesn’t know, then she definitely knows). Unless you are denser than the core of a dying star, your first step should be turning off the movie and giving her your full attention.
She straight up tells you
Some women are nervous about sex, not wanting to be that intimate with the wrong person, even if they do want to bed you. However, some women are not, and, when you are sufficiently close enough, will just outright tell you that you turn them on and they want to have sex. Granted, this will usually come after several minutes of seduction and making out, and may not be as blunt as this entry is making it sound, but you’ll know when she’s telling you. If your girlfriend is so utterly aroused by you that they forego seduction and tell you that they want you to take them to bed, you will most definitely know it when you hear it.
As was said in the introduction, no two women are alike. Some will be open about their wish to go down on you, and some will be more shy and hesitant. It’s important to communicate clearly with your girlfriend and figure out her tells so that when you both have sex, it’ll be the best thing in the world for the both of you.
When asked if you’re addicted to something, would you say you can’t live without coffee? Many men would probably say they’re addicted to sports or playing mobile games on their smartphone. Others may talk about their addiction to working out. But what about sex addiction?
There are psychologists who believe in the concept of sex addiction. The phrase “sex addiction” was coined back in the late 70s, and since then there have been many studies about what it is and how to treat it. On the other hand, there are also psychologists who don’t believe that sex addiction exists as a medical condition or psychological disorder. Here are some of their arguments.
Criteria For Addiction
In the past, the term addiction was only applied to substances such as tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. For an addiction to be medically diagnosed, there are four criteria that need to be met. First, there’s tolerance. This means that people who are addicted build up their tolerance such that the more they consume whatever it is they’re addicted to, the higher the amounts or concentrations they need to satisfy their craving.
Next, there’s the matter of craving. It’s not just a regular craving, like when you’re thinking of eating something you haven’t tasted for a long time. Unlike a craving for chocolates, people who are addicted experience such intense cravings that they go out of their way to get what they’re craving for.
The third criterion is withdrawal. The concept of withdrawal is something that most people are familiar with. In most cases, when you stop taking something you’re addicted to, you experience debilitating physiological effects. This is similar to drug addicts experiencing irritability, restlessness, and hot flashes when they stop taking drugs.
The last criterion is all about the consequences of the addiction. The more severe the addiction, the more severe the consequences. Addicts do almost anything in order to obtain and use whatever they’re addicted to, regardless of whatever negative consequences there might be, even if it means losing their job, their families, or their health.
Debate Among Specialists
To date, sex addiction is not listed as a mental disorder in the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V). This means that sex addiction is not officially or medically considered as a mental disorder.
Psychologists who object to the idea of sex addiction point out that it doesn’t meet the four criteria which are used to diagnose an addiction. For instance, there are no withdrawal symptoms or tolerance levels associated with sex addiction.
To put it simply, if you are supposedly a sex addict, how would a tolerance build up manifest? Would it mean that you will need more partners every time you have sex, or would it mean you will spend more time having sex? Moreover, what symptoms would you experience if you don’t engage in sex for several days?
If you’re craving for sex, you would probably just send a message to your partner and tell her to come home early or meet up somewhere to spend an intimate night together. But this is also not the same intense craving that drug addicts experience when they’re jonesing for their drug of choice.
You’ve probably experienced taking a day off or being absent from work because your lover wanted to meet up. But that’s hardly the same scenario as when drug addicts report to work high on drugs or disregard deadlines or not report to work for several days at all.
If we were to base it on the four criteria mentioned earlier, it would be difficult to say that sex addiction actually meets the criterion. Moreover, measuring how a supposedly sex-addicted person qualifies for each criteria would also be very challenging.
On the other side of the issue, neuroscientists may have the answer. It appears that engaging in compulsive or excessive sex triggers spikes in dopamine levels in the brain. And the scientists are saying that the neurological changes happening in the brain follow the same pattern that drug addicts show.
To answer the question of tolerance and dependence, scientists are saying that it’s all about dopamine and dynorphin, a protein in the brain that balances the release of dopamine. When dynorphin levels are high, it dampens your brain’s reward system, so you don’t feel any pleasure. To overcome this state, you’ll need more dopamine released into your brain, which is why you’ll need to engage in the behavior you’re addicted to. In this case, it means engaging in sex.
From this point of view, it would appear that tolerance is not about how many partners you have during sex, or how many hours you spend having sex. It would be all about how much pleasure you derive from the act. Tolerance could mean that you’re no longer satisfied with the usual missionary position, so you crave for more exotic or extraordinary positions or sexual behaviors.
This would explain why people who are considered as hypersexual exhibit risk-taking behaviors. Hypersexuality is considered as a dysfunction, and it involves obsessive and excessive pursuit of sexual behaviors such as masturbation, pornography, and casual sex.
Neuroscientists are also saying that the same parts of the brain that get triggered when cocaine addicts are shown images of cocaine also get triggered when they are shown erotic images. This suggests that the same neural networks are involved whenever the brain is presented with any rewarding stimulus, whether its cocaine for drug addicts or pornographic images for those with compulsive sexual behavior.
However, specialists who don’t believe in sex addiction are saying that it’s unnecessarily being pathologized or medicalized. This means that the behavior is viewed as a disorder or medical condition when it shouldn’t be. On the other hand, those who believe in the concept of sex addiction believe that it is an abnormal behavior that needs to be treated.
If you’ve been wanting to ask whether your interest in sex is healthy, or if you’re being excessive and obsessive about it, the answer may differ based on your therapist or sex counselor’s approach to sex addiction.
Sometimes your sex life can feel like the most prominent problem in your life. Whether you are dating, married, or just hanging out, sex seems to be one of the more important things in your relationship. This is because, guess what, sex is good for you. By having regular sex with your partner you are less likely to get sick, it relieves stress, plus your prostate gland will be less likely to contract any diseases or cancers. Plus sex can increase both you and your partner’s moods and can ease pain. No matter what age you are, sex is actually good for you. Try some of these tips and you will be well on your way to having a healthy sex life.
Have sex more often, maybe even tonight.
Regular intercourse is very good for you. It helps to keep your sex drive up and can increase the production of testosterone. Testosterone is responsible for your libido, your sex drive, so the more sex you have, the better your sex drive will be.
This is just an all-around good suggestion for your overall health. It can also help your sex life tremendously. Smoking has been known to clog blood vessels, including the ones in your penis. Once you quit smoking, you will have an easy time getting ready to get busy.
Do you know all the side effects of your medications?
You should really sit down and look at all the side effects of the various medications you may take. If there are any that may be diminishing your sex life, talk to your doctor about alternatives. Many medications for heart disease and depression can cause erection problems. There are many ways to get around these medications causing this, so make sure that you talk to your doctor about maybe switching brands or even the time you take your medication, before you do it.
Start taking ginkgo biloba supplements.
Always check with your doctor before you begin taking any new medications. Ginkgo biloba supplements help to increase blood flow, and I’m sure you can see where I’m going with this. It will greatly help your sex life, if you have been having trouble getting there.
Make physical contact with your partner.
When you are around your partner make sure that you are either regularly touching them, like holding hands or cuddling on the couch, or even kiss them every so often. The more physical contact that you have with your partner that does not involve sex, the more likely you two are to end up having a healthy sex life.
Make sure you are communicating.
In, and out, of bed you should communicate with your partner. The more that you are communicating when you are not in bed, the more likely you two will start to communicate while in bed. Little things during regular sex can become much better if you are communicating with your partner. It can make sex so much better if neither of you are afraid to say what you really want.
If you have kids, send them to grandmas.
You two do not need to go out, just send the kids away for the night. Spend the night together, in your home, and you will see how your sex life can be better. It will be nice to not have to leave your home, but you two can still feel like you can be intimate because your kids won’t be around.
Before you go to bed, make a list.
Make a list of what you need to do the next day, any worries that you have, or anything else that will distract you from sex. If you make this list, it will help you to get these things off your mind and make it more likely to become aroused. The more relaxed you are when you are laying down for the night, the more likely you will be to become intimate with your partner.
Do not overdrink.
This is an extremely good rule whether it is your first date or 100th date. Small amounts of alcohol can relax both you and your partner, but too much alcohol will just ruin everything. Even if you two end up having sex after a lot of alcohol, it is never very intimate and it can be bad if you want a healthy sex life. Keep the drinks to a minimum and see how your relationship becomes healthier and more intimate.
Tell your partner what you love about them every day.
This can be as simple as watching them do an everyday task and you telling them how much you love watching them do it. The more that you tell your partner why you love them, the more appreciation and love they will have for you. This is a good way to keep, or create, a healthy sex life with your partner.
Call your partner during the day.
Give your partner a call, to just have a conversation. Do not call to complain or nag about something that is wrong, instead have a conversation about the dog you saw at the park or the lady having an intense conversation in the coffee line. Basically, talk about something that will make your partner feel like you were thinking about them and felt the need to call and tell them about something. This can help to create a feeling of intimacy outside of the bedroom for both you and your partner.
Be physical together.
I don’t mean be physical in bed, instead go for a walk or to the gym together. You can even take a walk down the beach or to downtown. You can go hiking or skiing. No matter what it is, as long as it is physical, and you two are together, it will be just fine. This can help you two to see each other in a very different light. Plus this physical activity can lead to other physical activities.
As we age, many things happen to our bodies. It can be especially difficult once you start to experience low T levels. Don’t worry, as this is not the end of the world and is a natural thing for every male as they age. There are many things that you can do to help prevent low T levels. Here are a few suggestions to help you prevent low T levels, or to help raise yours.
Otherwise known as BPA, this can be one of the biggest culprits of low T levels in males. If you don’t know, this is a chemical that is found in many plastics and is activated when these plastics heat up. This can be a something in your household items that you had no idea about. Make sure that you are buying BPA free plastics, if you are buying any at all.
Okay, you don’t have to completely cut beer out of your life, but it would be a good start to begin cutting back on it. The hops found in beer can potentially lower T levels in men. Hops is estrogenic, yes estrogen, and this what combats against high levels of testosterone in the body. Drinking beer will not make you into a woman, but it does contain hops, which contains chemicals that can combat against your testosterone levels. Try switching to hard alcohol instead of having six or more beers on the weekends.
Soy is not good for testosterone levels, and you should be completely avoiding it. Especially if you are overweight, you should be avoiding soy based foods. This can be good for your overall health as well as your T levels. You should implement a soy free diet so that it is not affecting your testosterone levels.
Lack of sleep is a direct cause of low T levels. Sometimes it can be hard to get enough sleep, especially with our busy lifestyles it feels like we have to keep going and going. By missing sleep, you raise your cortisol levels, which can reduce your testosterone levels. You should be getting enough sleep, about seven hours, every night if you want to keep healthy T levels.
The, seemingly, never ending problem for us. Trying to eliminate stress in your life is an overall good thing for your health, and it can help to combat against low T levels. Cortisol is a stress hormone that, much like with lack of sleep, is created when you are stressed. Cortisol can suppress libido in men of all ages. When you are stressed, you are less likely to be performing at your highest. Try to eliminate stress in your life, for both your overall health and your testosterone health.
Carrying around those extra pounds is so bad for your health. It can lead to many different conditions and diseases, like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and so much more. Did you know that it can also affect your T levels? Any of the conditions and diseases that come with obesity can affect your T levels also. When it comes to obesity, your fat tissue can affect your production of testosterone, making your levels lower than they should be. It is a good idea to help yourself, by losing those extra pounds that your body does not need.
What you eat could be affecting your T levels. Your body uses many vitamins and minerals to create testosterone, especially zinc. If you are not getting enough zinc in your diet, it is probably affecting your T levels. You should also be eating more fat, and I mean good fats not saturated fats that are found in junk food. A low fat diet is a thing of the past, and you should leave it there. Good fats in your diet can help you to create more testosterone.
Here are a few examples of zinc enriched and high, (good) fat foods:
- Shellfish is a good source of zinc in your diet. This can include anything from lobster to shrimp. It is very easy to buy this either fresh or frozen at your local supermarket.
- Beef also contains zinc. It can be an easy way to incorporate more zinc into your diet, without having to change your diet too much.
- Pork is another meat that has high levels of zinc. The nice part about pork is that it comes in many different shapes and forms. Remember, although bacon does fall into the pork category, something like a pork chop is much better for you.
- Dark meat poultry is something that most people don’t think about when it comes to zinc. It has much higher levels of zinc than white meat does. Make sure that you are choosing dark meat, if you are trying to add more zinc to your diet.
- Zinc supplements. If you are vegan, vegetarian, or just don’t really like meat, adding zinc supplements to your daily supplements is a good thing. You can buy zinc supplements at any pharmacy or supermarket.
- Grass-fed butter is higher in fat than other butters, but will not be bad to add to your diet. Remember that this isn’t something that you should just eat by itself, but rather to cook your food in.
- Almond butter. Almonds are a great source of good fats, so in turn almond butter is also. If you are looking to add more than just regular butter into your life, try almond butter. It is easy to swap out on toast, bagels, and anything else that you slather in butter.

So, you’re out with this girl. She’s funny, she‘s cute, she’s smart, she’s quick-witted. She’s checking all of the boxes. You’d love to see her again, and then you can see if this is all really a thing or just working for the first date. What’s the number one thing that you can do to make sure that you get a call and get her to agree on going on a second date with you? Well, according to the data, it’s not picking up the check or showing up in a fancy car. Can you make her laugh? That’s it. A sense of humor. You hear it over and over again, but 90% of women will go on a second date with a guy who can make them laugh.
There are a lot of reasons for this. There are some deeper things at play and connections that are made. A woman who sees you as having a good sense of humor will connect that with intelligence. If you have a good sense of humor and a quick wit about you, that must mean that your mind is more agile, able to make connections quickly, and you must have a base level of knowledge to make connections yourself to make a joke.
Also, they connect a sense of humor and wit with creativity. Intelligence and creativity are both positive attributes that women believe that they can connect with on a deeper level. A sense of humor is seen as a hint that there are deeper layers to you and that you’re worth getting to know on a deeper level. And since they want to get to know you, that means they’re more likely to give you that second date to see where things might go.
Another aspect of a good sense of humor that women find attractive is that it hints that you don’t always take things too seriously. This is a positive attribute in a mate because you don’t want to drag your stress and baggage into a relationship. At least not on the first date. It’s a good thing to sometimes just be able to let things go. She’ll see you as someone who doesn’t always take life so seriously. Further down the road, she’s not going to want to be with someone who doesn’t take anything about life seriously, but that’s an argument to have at a different time. For now, you’re just trying to get that second date, so — go ahead — make her laugh.
So, what if you’re having an off day and the jokes aren’t rolling like they can sometimes?
What if your quick wit’s a little slow or taking the day off because some really bad stuff went down at work and you took the hit on it? We all have bad days, and you don’t want to drag that on to a first date, you don’t want to blow off the date entirely. She seems really cool and you’d hate to give the impression you’re not interested. Not to worry, good sir, because running a very close second in terms of what is important to women on.a first date is showing her that you’re interested in her. Lend an ear to her views, her ideas, her career, her life. Let her tell you about herself. Listen. Ask follow up questions. Follow up questions using information that you’ve already gleaned from her show her that you’re listening, that you’re interested and that you want to know more — you want to go deeper.
And don’t try to combine the two. You can use your sense of humor to show that you’re listening, making connections and interested in her. But don’t make a mockery of her, her views, her ideas or her career. Yikes. That will not end well.
So, you’re on the first date. You’re knocking her socks off. Listening. Asking her about her. Throwing a well-placed joke here and there. It’s going great. How do you stick the landing though? How do you make sure that nothing goes wrong to derail this for you? Well, women pointed to some specific things that they hate to see from a guy on a first date — some stuff that should be pretty easy to avoid.
Do not hit on or check out other women.
Let’s say she’s telling you a story about something that happened at work. It’s a dry spell in an otherwise interesting conversation. You start to haze up a little bit. Your mind wanders. Hey, look at that cutie by the bar and — nope. Don’t go there. Keep your eyes on hers and take it in. Even if you don’t think she’s looking. She is. And it’s the very first date. Try to be a gentleman for a few hours. Women also noted specifically that a huge turn off is hitting on the waitress. So be careful about how those interactions go. You’re on your first date with this woman for a reason. I realize it’s the first date and you’re not married to her, but you are trying to build some kind of connection. You may want to keep your options open, I get that, but you have to keep it together for now. You can always come back later if this date is a dud and make whatever move you feel like you need to.
Don’t read the previous advice about hitting on the waitress as a free ride to treating her like crap either though.
That’s a known turn off as well. Make sure you treat your waitress with respect. And give her a healthy tip. It’ll go a long way to showing that you respect other people, — particularly other women — and that you’re genuinely a good person. People take note of how their partners handle wait staff or people in the service industry and judge them on it.
If you want that second date, make sure you’re taken care of your hygiene.
Give your teeth a brushing. Throw in some mouthwash. Use a mint. It’s all pretty basic stuff so you don’t come off as some kind of a gross slob. Easy stuff there.
Good luck out there and good luck getting that second date.
Every guy wants to be able to give their all in the bedroom. It’s wrapped up in our self-identity, to some extent; it validates us as men when we can give our partner a mind-blowing time. But, especially as we age, it gets harder and harder to perform at our peak. Growing older is no reason to give up, though. There are tons of avenues available for the man who wants to boost their performance in a safe and healthy way. There’s no need to ever feel inadequate when you can take your performance into your own hands.
If you don’t get regular exercise, that’s likely to take a significant toll on your sex life. Working out is vital to your body performing healthily, and that counts for your sexual organs as well. If you get a lot of cardio, then that will strengthen your heart over time and keep it pumping strong. Achieving and maintaining erections is pretty much an issue of blood flow, so the better your blood is flowing, longer and harder you’ll be able to maintain an erection.
Furthermore, the best sex involves a good deal of strength and stretching. If you want to be able to toss your partner around, then get yourself on a weight lifting routine. Yoga and tai chi, on the other hand, are perfect exercises for making yourself more flexible and capable of trying more varied and interesting positions. As sex is a fundamentally physical activity, exercising more will make you better at pretty much every aspect of sex.
Exercise isn’t the only thing that will keep your blood flowing stronger. There are a number of foods that are good for your blood flow; bananas will help lower your blood pressure, omega-3 rich fish and nuts will lower your cholesterol, onions and garlic increase your overall blood flow, and natural spicy foods reduce inflammation and hypertension. All of that will get help out your blood flow, which in turn will help your erection. There are also foods that will naturally boost your libido, aphrodisiacs like chocolate or oysters. They say you are what you eat, so if you want to be a fantastic lover, you’re going that have to eat the right fuel. Eating healthier, and avoiding junk food, will also make you taste better, so doing so will make your partner thank you.
Sex isn’t all about physicality and biology. The best sex is between partners who openly and honestly communicate with each other. If you have hangups about sexual discussion, try to confront them. You can’t have good sex without talking about it. Ask questions of your partner, ask them what they might want to try, let them know what you might want as well. See if there are any things that make your partner feel uncomfortable, and let them know that you won’t judge them.
The more you’re able to communicate your own wants, desires, and concerns, and the more that your partner can do the same, the more you’ll be able to enjoy sex together. Communication is the bedrock of any relationship; whether it’s your wife of many years or a casual friend with benefits, being able to talk about sex will always make it better.
You don’t have to settle for regular, vanilla sex. It’s possible that vanilla sex is all that you ever want, and if that’s the case, don’t feel pressured to try crazy things. On the other hand, if you are curious about trying new things, don’t hold back. Discuss with your partner new experiences that you might want to try, and explore free of shame. Read up on what other people have to say; you can garner wisdom and learn new things to try from what others have done before you. If you’re not sure whether you’ll like something or not, try it; if you don’t like it, then don’t seek it again. Experimenting will widen your boundaries and provide you with better sex over all.
Often times, trouble achieving or maintaining an erection has nothing to do with biology or anything physical. Sometimes, it’s entirely in your own head. You start to lose the erection a little bit in the middle of the act, and it starts to make you worry. You focus on trying to bring it back, but the more you focus, the more it goes away. Ultimately, this is a psychological problem. Trying to “make” yourself perform through sheer force of will is roughly the same as deliberately not thinking of a pink elephant. It’s counterproductive. If you start to have issues with your erection, don’t force it to come back. Just relax, and enjoy the sensations, instead of trying to correct the course. The more you’re able to relax, the more likely it is to come back and stay longer.
If you have trouble lasting long enough, then masturbating is a good way to help you maintain for longer. If you can masturbate in the same day that you’re expecting to have a sexual encounter, then you can clear out the pipes, so to speak, and last longer once it comes time for the big event. Of course, it can work the other way; if you last too long, or if you have trouble maintaining an erection at all, masturbating before sex might just make the experience worse.
You don’t need to take a pill in order to maintain an erection. There are perfectly natural supplements available on the market that don’t require a prescription and don’t come with a laundry list of potential side effects. Using natural ingredients like the south american plant maca, supplements will keep you performing better, lasting longer, and enjoying the experience more. The best part about natural supplements is that they don’t have to be a cure for anything; even young men who can perform perfectly fine can take supplements and have their sexual prowess enhanced.

A relationship filled with paranoia and doubts significantly contribute to its eventual demise. The damage goes beyond the quality of the relationship as it also leaves a scarring experience, making it even harder to be in healthy relationships in the future. Self-sabotaging thoughts not only hurt any future that your relationship has, it also hurts your mental and emotional health that puts your self-worth to a plummeting doom. It brings you down and makes you believe that you’re the worst.
It is important to recognize the signs that you or your significant other is unreasonably being paranoid. It’s also crucial that the problem is addressed head-on. And, it is a terrible mistake to identify paranoia as part of love or being in love. It can’t even be justified by that. Remember, love in its purest form, without doubts and malice, only breeds peace and happiness. The other problems that arise in any relationship; well, that’s people and their own baggage.
Here are ways you can stop paranoia from damaging your relationship:
Stop the urge to call and text when they’re out with friends
Being incessant on your calls and messages just because your partner is having a good time with friends implies mistrust and even insecurity. Why would it make you feel bad that the love of your life is having fun with others every now and then? Instead of getting worried for no reason, try to divert your attention to something else. Take a deep breath, put your phone down, and concentrate on other activities that you could be enjoying, either by yourself or with friends.
Go out and have fun with your friends as well
Instead of just sitting at home waiting for your partner to come home like a complete loser, go out with your friends as well and have fun with them. Couples that follow their individual interests have more to talk about when they’re together. Besides, spending time venturing on your personal hobbies makes you less likely to have unreasonable doubts and worries about your partner when they’re away. So, it’s pretty much a great distraction that also ends up doing you good.
Strive for honesty to recover
In the case of infidelity and both of you still want to save the relationship, honesty is important. Don’t be hesitant to seek professional help, too, if you think that’ll be best for the relationship and its healing. Psychologists can help people in terms of changing the way you think and feel, especially your thoughts and feelings in your relationship. While opting to overcome an affair can be both painful and confusing, it can be gratifying if you find the right expert to help you and your partner start anew.
Redirect concern by writing it down
It may be healing and beneficial to write down things that bother you as means of re-channeling negativities. This is better than being paranoid as this can be eventually frustrating for yourself and your partner at the same time. While it’s normal to be anxious about infidelity, you can control how you feel about it through journaling as this helps you gain wider perspectives that can make you feel better about yourself and whatever situation you’re in.
Be less guarded and cautious
People who are paranoid are always on guard because they strongly think that others are always looking for the chance to degrade, hurt, or terrorize them. These beliefs, which generally don’t have basis, in addition to their habits of culpability and disbelief, might get in the way when it comes to their capacity to establish close and healthy romantic relationships.
Take a deep breath before making your reaction heard, seen, or felt
The key to dealing with paranoia is to learn means of coping that help a person not react based on their emotions but on logic or reason. Surely, this isn’t easy as it seems especially when emotions are running high. But, if you make it a goal to, you can gradually help yourself to be more calm and mindful even during emotional situations. Learn how to delay reactivity and respond from a reasonable frame of mind in order to avoid severe conflicts with your significant other.
Resist being consumed by posts on social media
Obviously, social media can feed on someone’s paranoia because it is how people discreetly keep an eye out for possible suspicious behavior or activity. It’s also remarkable how a vague post can instantly fuel one’s insecurity or doubts. All of sudden, there’s a story you’re fabricating in your mind and it’s negatively impacting how you feel about yourself, your partner, and the status of your relationship. Rather than stalking your partner’s social media and devising stories solely based on this one comment from this person you don’t know, ask them unswervingly about it.
It can help if you can concentrate on every moment and understand the things that are happening right there and then, physically and emotionally. This practice can help decrease self-sabotaging mindset and behavior. For instance, understand what triggers certain worries and anxieties. Being able to identify the triggers help you prepare for them the next time something like that happens. With this, you can reconsider acting out on impulse. Without being fully aware of what’s taking place at a certain moment, you’re not able to think about your reactions.
Open your heart and give trust
In order to trust your partner and avoid feelings of doubts, you need to be able to love yourself first. Focus on your self-love and self-worth. Only then can you fully trust other people around you. If you’re insecure, that will manifest in how you handle your relationship, which means constant doubts, mistrust, and jealousy. If you want to change that, focus on self-love. This doesn’t mean being selfish or self-centered, just the healthy kind of love you can give to yourself.
