A Lark in the Park May Put a Correction in Your Erection

I recently attended the American Urologic Society meeting in San Francisco, May 31-June 3, and I attended a program about male sexual dysfunction.  I was pleasantly surprised to hear of a study that reported that men who exercised on a regular basis were better performers in the bedroom.  Those men who exercised regularly had better erections and had sexual intimacy more frequently those men who led sedentary life styles.  Even men who had  moderate exercise, like take a brisk walk for 30 minutes four times a week were much less likely to have sexual dysfunction than those who were walkers.  It was noteworthy that even moderate exercise such as yoga and walking were just as beneficial as strenuous exercise such as jogging and swimming.

The researches from Duke University suggested that exercise may increase blood flow through the penis, making it easier to get an erection.  Also, working out may make men feel better about themselves and that in turn may improve sexual prowess.

Bottom Line: Men, you may just be able to keep that Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis tablet in the medicine cabinet if you started a regular exercise program.  The best would be to take that walk with your partner as your relationship will also improve if you take time to be with each other on a regular basis.
