There are a plethora of resources available on the subject of vaginal health, but what about penile wellness? When it comes to the dude’s side of things, people tend to dismiss them. Perhaps this is due to the fact that it is not a cavernous environment that is susceptible to yeast infections or other irritating conditions.
Men’s genital health, on the other hand, is as vital.
In order to better understand how to care for your ding dong, let’s look at some direct and indirect methods.
WATER IS ESSENTIAL TO THE HEALTH OF THE PENIS
Several studies have found a connection between dehydration and erectile dysfunction. Aside from the fact that it is beneficial to one’s overall health, try to drink those couple of litres for the benefit of your mini-me.
The colour of your urine can tell you whether or not you’re receiving enough water…
It is possible that you are dehydrated if your urine is clear.
Urine that is yellow to amber in colour is deemed typical.
You may be dehydrated if your urine is orange or brown in colour.
- PELVIC EXERCISES FOR THE HEALTH OF THE PENIS
With regard to the subject of water, you may have heard that women should perform Kegel exercises to strengthen their pelvic floor – mostly to counteract changes that occur during pregnancy or complications that arise as women become older (like leaking pee).
But did you know that males should participate in these activities as well?
And it’s not just your underwear that will benefit; you’ll be cleaner on the inside as well. Anyone who wants to bring you down will receive an additional incentive. Because, believe me when I say (based on personal experience), getting a mouthful of urine residue is disgusting.
Simply squeeze for five seconds, then relax, and continue for a total of ten rounds with the muscles you use to pee. Work your way up to twenty reps, three or four times a day, gradually increasing the number of repetitions. Any leakage will be resolved within a short period of time.
- PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE! WASH IN THE APPROPRIATE MANNER
The answer is no, you cannot simply stand in the shower and allow the cascading water to do all the job for you. It’s time to get in there and do some serious cleaning. Don’t forget to clean the areas around it as well – such your perineum, inner thighs, and the areas around your butt cheeks and bum hole. Why? There are several places where sweat can gather.
If you haven’t been cut yet, gently pull back the foreskin and wash that area to avoid smegma buildup in the future. Because dick cheese can result in more serious health problems such as balanitis (aka glans swelling).
You haven’t finished yet, though!
Examine your skin for things like warts, rashes, blisters, and unusual discharge. These could be indicators of a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
- PENIS HEALTH AND GROOMING FOR THE PUBLIC
It is entirely up to you whether or not to trim or shave the hedges. There is no such thing as right or wrong.
You should be cautious, however, if you decide to get your hands dirty and remove some metaphorical weeds in the process.
When shaving, make sure to shave in the same direction as the hair development. You will prevent getting a shaving rash if you follow these instructions.
Never, ever share a razor (for obvious reasons)
If you want to have your hair waxed, hire a professional that uses clean equipment.
When trimming with scissors, sterilise the scissors before and after each use.
If you plan to use chemical products (such as Nair), try a small patch first and get items that are specifically designed for sensitive areas.
- PRACTICE SAFE SEX IN A SAFE ENVIRONMENT!
Genital warts are a serious infection that should not be taken lightly. Make sure to use a condom during each and every sexual interaction. Additionally, every new partner should be tested.
