"Some good news, guys: A new analysis of penis sizes will help reassure most of you that you're normal, researchers say.
Many males worry about their penis size, even when there's no cause for concern. But until now, there has been no formal review of research into penis size and no attempt to develop a system to show the range of sizes of flaccid or erect penises, the researchers said.
The British investigators reviewed 17 published studies that included more than 15,500 men whose penises were measured by health professionals using a standard procedure.
The average length of a flaccid penis was 3.6 inches, the average length of a flaccid stretched penis was 5.3 inches, and the average length of an erect penis was 5.2 inches."
Read the article above for more information on the study and its findings.
Like many of you I had a terrible case of jock itch last summer. Like everything else they evolve and become impervious to previous solutions. Nothing I tried did more than relieve the most terrible urge to scratch only for a few hours. I finally found some 1 percent mentax which is not prescription but at many drug stores is kept behind the pharmacy counter. I applied the mentax on the fungus for a week and the symptoms were gone, but kept up the application for 30 days. It has not come back. The metax has also improved the formation and texture of my unholy toenails to the point I can now properly manicure them. I am 79 years old. I have always showered at least once a day and more if needed. Mentax is the only product I have found to keep me free of fungus problems. I only use it occaisionally now on my toe nails, as I have not had any other problems since that time. I also use hand soap instead of the soft soap I was using, mainly because it has more lye in it and I feel it fights bacteria more readily .I intend to switch to octagon lye soap as soon as I can find a vender.View Thread
Hi Its your meds there sex killers, your only way out would be to find a natural way of getting your HBP under control. Are you on statins? Two of the first areas to look at for correcting high blood pressure are diet and exercise. Artery clogging trans-fats, processed meats and other items in the SADS diet of most Americans often lead to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems. Switching to a healthy diet can lower high blood pressure and prevent it from occurring in the future. Likewise, physical exercise helps lower and prevent high blood pressure and cardiovascular problems. The combination of good diet and physical activity works even better. These could help you, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Omega 3, Cayenne pepper and Turmeric, Garlic. Now because of me having ED this part of what I take. The way out and clearing away plaque would be to get on Cayenne Pepper, Turmeric and garlic, take this each morning and see how you go. You just mix CP and Turmeric 50/50 in olive oil and then mix with tomato paste and thin it with olive oil, at first you just mix this to a heat that suits you, and over time you can slowly increase the CP and Turmeric. You take 3 small teaspoonful each morning first thing, you wash each spoonful down with water, before anything else just after you get up, one thing it will warm you up, with this, which will also help would be very fine chopped garlic, just do a whole head, chopped fine, and keep in olive oil, with this you add dried parsley, a couple of good desert spoonfuls and mix, you just add a teaspoonful on top of the CP an turmeric mix, just mix into the top take as said. The Parsley its very good for the blood and helps keep your Cholesterol down. No if you read up about all three, the very good for ED, your heart and prostate, garlic is also very good for your blood, so along with the CP and turmeric, your be doing your body the world of good. And yes have had ED now in recovery and do take what is above along with other stuff. If you google these titles, there posts of mine on franktalk.org. DRUGE EVRSUS HERBS, HERBS MY CHOICE ************same again but add**************, daily intake NOHARDS HERB LIST WITH LINKS NOHARDS HERBS FOR ED, PART 2 If you want to try it do a 12 week trail, it takes time for things to work So do hope this helps you. Good Luck
Cialis worked better for me than Levitra or Sildenafil. The only thing I didn't like was retrograde ejaculation. Daily Cialis would not be cost effective for me because of infrequency of intercourse. My HMO previously offered Levitra and now Sildenafil at a very low cost. I haven't priced it for a while but daily Cialis would cost me over $200 a month. I did the 30 day free trial. It also helped with my BPH.View Thread
Hi You really need to stay focused, when your with your g/f just try being naked with her, get all warm and relaxed with her but keep focused on her try oral sex 69 can be fun, but enjoy it, get through that then go on to full intercourse but let her put the condom on for you, get her to play with your penis at the same time why you enjoying her body.
Try this and see how you go.
But if your getting morning woods, its not an ED problem, its just you, do the above and see how it goes.
Look up these to exercises on www.pegym.com one is edging and the other is kegels. ok the first one should help you keep your erections why helping you last longer, the second does lots of things for your pelvic floor, it also helps you pump blood into your penis.
Hi, Trimex may be the thing for you, its for injecting, but have you tried pumping and using a torsion ring to keep it hard for longer. But as you say your drugs are not helping. Have a look on www,franktalk.org its a place where us old farts go with ED problems, you could gather some more info there. Good Luck
Hi Sounds like you have been over masturbating, say 3 to 4 times a day, then its hit your nerves, and memory, just give up masturbating for the next 12 weeks, full stop, give it a chance and things will come back.
But just keep your penis in your pants anytime you fill like masturbating just get where people are, and of a night time find a pair of boxing glove;s to sleep in, these will stop you playing with yourself.

Hello I was wondering if anyone ever had this issue. I have had a problem for at least 13 years or so now and no doctor has been able to pin point the issue. It all started with a pain on my left side below my rib cage that I could almost feel in my back area as well. Once the pain comes into play I would get dizzy and really weak to where it would seem that I would almost faint and be out of it. Then it would go away through the years I have been to numerous doctors and done numerous tests and nothing has ever been found. I have done sonograms, x-rays, cat scans, MRI's, endoscopy, colonoscopy, stress tests you name it I have done it. Its weird because sometimes its starts with the pain in my side or left side would be a little jumpy or just weird symptoms but in the end the dizziness and weakness would prevail. It would seems as thought I am just off balance and couldn't do anything. The issue is I could lay down wake up and nothing at all or after a few days of these constant symptoms it would go away. Now that it has happen s0 long for so often I kind of got used to it but it drives me crazy that no doctor can fix me it gets discouraging. Every doctor adds a different test while I continue to suffer with no relief in sight. I am over weight I get that and I take a pill for blood pressure but they have that under control and they had me checking my sugar to make it isn't diabetes but nothing. its funny it seems that as I get older the episodes are happening more often it would be great to live a life without this pain but it seems it will be dead and gone before they figure this out. One doctor even suggest it was in my mind but it not I feel the pain and pressure when it hits me and with the dizziness and weakness in my body it really takes me down. I keep thinking its some organ that is malfunctioning periodically and causing this than it goes back to normal but I am no doctor. I live in MD and have tried 5 different doctors and have went to 3 different hospital ER and nothing found to this pointView Thread
I would like your thoughts on this. I'm experiencing a decreased feeling or partial numbness on the top of the penis shaft. I can still pain, cold, etc. but when my penis is flaccid and facing downwards in my underwear I get the feeling that my penis is not there. However, the underside of my penis has 100% feeling, so like if i place my penis upwards where the underside is touching the underwear I can feel my penis is there. Can someone explain what's happening here? Will it get better? I can still get nighttime erections caz I felt them during sleep, and able to ejaculate (but little semen comes out).View Thread
So I have eczema and I think that's what thus rash is. But I'm not sure If I can treat it with my regular medicated lotion, because it so close to my genital area. I tried alo Vera but it seemed to make the rash redder and just worse in general. Do you have any suggestions?View Thread
just discovered i have low t. i am 60 and hae had several back surgeries. last few months i have increased fatigue and feel lousy, my numbers were were very low and i wonder what i can take to bring them up?View Thread
Hi, that is a real problem. sounds like it can be a couple of things maybe low testosterone causing no desire. performance anxiety. try introducing toys like vibrators to remove some of the pressure to perform. try Cialis is much better than Viagra. keep it light the mood, so he doesn't feel like failing. keep it sexy and fun. remember good sex is driven by desire. also make sure he isn't masturbating to much. couples porn may help with arousal. little alcohol doesn't hurt either. good luck.

I'm with John on this one -- a penis health creme is probably the way to go. Just like skin on the rest of the body, penile skin can dry out. Seeing a doctor is a good idea though whenever something abnormal is going on. Better safe than sorry.View Thread
Iam 34 and I have been suffering from this for prob about ten years, sometimes has been decent but most of the time its extremely hard for me to get erection and sometimes cant at all. In the last year I have been put on some testosterone treatment but by a doctor with no knowledge. I have seen some mourning wood come back but not that often. I have no kind of mental stimulation but with a lot of effort I can manage most of the time with a lot of help from my wife. I also suffer from restless leg syndrome and have anxiety problems but I don't think it is my anxiety because I cant even get myself erect. That's why I think it is libido. Its almost like I cant get in the right mood for it. I will post my last bloodwork .

Hi from the way you put it its, round the wrong way physiological and then physical.
Its just your thoughts are getting ahead of your body.
Try relaxing and think sexy thoughts, see how that works, or try looking at some porn but just looking no touching, hold those images in your brain and use them as a way to getting erections, even if your with a woman and things are not going the way you want in bed just use the images.

this has been happening for about four months now, the head of my penis will be significantly colder then the rest of my body, like i'll press it against my leg and it'll be really really cold, it was usually never like that could someone explain why? my testicles shrinkle up now as well more then ever and it's harder for me to get and sustain erections then before, im 20 btw could someone explain to me as to why this is occuring?View Thread
Possibly a yeast infection or sensitive skin reaction. An over-the-counter antifungal cream can help if it is a yeast infection. Try using sensitive skin cleansers instead of regular soap in the shower, and wear only cotton underwear. A penis health cream can help with the itching and dryness - just don't apply any creams to open sores.View Thread

Hello, I am 37 yo male who has been struggling off and on with the above referenced issues since about age 24.
It usually manifests in prostate pain in general, or at different times swelling and irritation in my left scrotum area with pain radiating into the left abdomen and down the left leg.
Usually the symptoms will last a few days to a week and a half and then subside on their own. At one point last year I did experience some discharge and was prescribed some antibiotics and the issue cleared up.
But most recently, the dull ache in the scrotum has returned, although no discharge. Im getting really tired of this and I want to something different this time.
After doing a lot of reading online it seems like there is a lot vagueness about this condition esp when it recurrs and goes away for no apparent reason. I am going to contact my doctor tomorrow to see if he wants to prescribe another round of antibiotics, but it seems really fruitless in light of the recurring nature of my problem.
I am sexually active hetrosexual, with one exclusive partner for the last two years. She is apparently healthy, but has had HPV in the past but told me her doctor has told her it cleared up. I have no reason to believe she has other sex partners, but I don't know.
I have struggled with this problem while abstient from sex in prior yearsso I feel that it is problably something else other than an std esp since it is recurring, lingers for awhile and then comes back again and goes away.
I am very interested in herbal homeopathic remedies, but I havent tried them.
Can anyone shed light or share their own experiences with alternative treatment like herbal or other suggestions for coping and healing, and possibly getting cured of the problem?
