Your sexual satisfaction is important. It’s the glue that binds a relationship together, making it unique from all other human interactions. Making love creates a powerful bond, and is a marvelous stress-buster and a natural sleep aid. It’s also one of the best ways to stay healthy. “Use it or lose it” is very true: many of the health benefits that accrue as the result of an active, satisfying sex life can go missing when sex becomes just one more chore to get through on your overwhelming to-do list before blessed sleep can overtake you.
It was once thought that erectile and arousal problems were purely psychological in origin. These days, we tend to assume that libido woes are a matter of bio-chemical imbalance, to be cured with a pill. But did you know you can improve sexual performance without drugs or psychotherapy?
Statistics show that most popular, manufactured drugs work on fewer than 39% of the population. They also have potential side effects, some frightening indeed: infertility, headache, dizziness, heart palpitations, blurred vision, risk of blindness and, perhaps most frustrating of all from a love-making standpoint, orgasm without its accompanying knock-your-socks-off sensations.
Occasionally, these drugs can also cause priapism, a condition in which an erection lasts for four or more hours. Again, this is a side effect that many people laugh about, but it's painful, even dangerous condition that must be treated immediately. Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis also interact with prescription drugs, including nitrates (nitroglycerine), taken for heart disease, and alpha-blockers (Cardura, Minipress, and Hytrin), which are used to lower blood pressure. And of cause, with a cost of several dollars per dose, another of these drugs' side effects is damage to your bank account. With so many perils surrounding conventional drugs, many men would prefer a safer lower-cost alternative.
