Loss of penis sensation is a common problem, even in younger men. Manufacturers of impotence drugs and penile enhancements often use this to their advantage to market pharmaceuticals that are generally ineffective and may cause harmful side effects. What many men do not realize is that penis sensitivity can be treated without resorting to drugs and gimmicks by following a few simple tips. In addition, regular use of a formula containing penis-specific vitamins and minerals can help to maintain normal sensitivity of the penis and may even assist in restoring lost penile sensitivity. The following suggestions are often all that is needed to rejuvenate the penis skin and boost the enjoyment of sex.
Relax and enjoy the moment
Although the erogenous skin of the penis obviously plays a big role in sexual stimulation, research has shown that sexual desire and satisfaction is primarily a mental process. Men who are able to relax and enjoy the process of sex, rather than focusing on the end result, tend to have deeper and more satisfying orgasms.
Try something new
Men who find themselves in a rut, masturbating in the same manner every time or going for a jackrabbit effect during intercourse, are prone to loss of penis sensation. This problem may occur when the penis skin is desensitized by the constant friction, similar to the callouses that develop on the hands over time as a result of physical labor.
Mixing it up — using feathers or other toys, or just the tips of the fingers — to stimulate the skin on other parts of the body can create a new range of sensations that lead to arousal, giving the penis skin a break and allowing men to enjoy greater sensitivity and pleasure during sex.
Avoid tobacco use and limit the intake of alcohol
Chemical substances such as tobacco and alcohol can wreak havoc on the circulatory and nervous system. Regular smoking, in particular, can lead to desensitization of the penis and limit the ability to enjoy sex. Since smoking is bad for the health on many levels, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain by quitting. In addition, limiting alcohol consumption to no more than a few drinks each week can improve the body’s ability to heal and to rejuvenate damaged skin and nerve cells that may cause loss of penis sensitivity.
Wear soft, loose-fitting clothing
Wearing restrictive clothing can interfere with circulation, limiting the amount of blood flow to the penis and inhibiting penis sensation. In addition, rough fabrics that constantly rub against the penis skin can cause penile desensitization over time. Wearing looser, breathable clothing (all-natural fabrics are best) can improve blood flow to the area and prevent chafing and long-term damage to the skin.
Use a daily vitamin formula
Vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids are just as important to penis health as they are to the rest of the body. Here are just some of the nutrients that play an essential role in penis sensitivity and overall penis health:
— Vitamin A promotes youthful, supple penis skin that is receptive to tactile stimulation;
— Vitamin C supports the circulatory system and maintains the skin’s natural elasticity, as well as helping the body to fight off the effects of chemical damage from tobacco, alcohol and other harmful substances;
— Vitamin E creates a natural moisture barrier, preventing drying and dehydration of the penis skin that can cause the buildup of toughened skin cells that often results in loss of penis sensation.
— Natural oils such as shea butter moisturize the skin, leaving it smooth and responsive without irritation.
Choosing a penis sensitivity treatment
While numerous skin crèmes are available that contain some combination of the above ingredients, not all of these are appropriate for application to the penis. Many skin moisturizers contain fragrances and other chemicals that can actually cause irritation, which is a factor in penile sensation loss. In order to receive the maximum benefits of these and other essential vitamins and minerals, use of a penis health formula (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) that is applied directly to the target area is advised.
