Loss of penis sensitivity happens as men get older, but it can also be a result of having too much fun — i.e., being overly rough or aggressive when having sex (solo or partner), and also it can come from the penis experiencing a trauma such as being hit hard or otherwise damaged. One way to help maintain penis sensitivity is to regularly use a superior penis vitamin formula (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). You want to use a formula that includes the ingredient known as acetyl L carnitine; it is neuroprotective and can help with sensitivity issues. Good luck!View Thread
First, I want to make sure we're talking about the same thing: when you say you are not ejaculating, you mean that you are satisfactorily reaching the end of a masturbation session with an orgasm, but no fluid is coming out (sometimes called a dry orgasm), yes? Assuming that is the case, you may be experiencing something that is known as retrograde ejaculation, when the bladder sphincter does not operate properly, causing semen to enter the bladder rather than the urethra. (It is then expelled from the body mixed in with urine at a later time.) Definitely make an appointment with a urologist and tell him what has been going on; he can confirm if this is retrograde ejaculation or another issue. Meanwhile, kudos to you for keeping a proper eye on your penis health, something too many men choose to ignore. To keep your penis in good overall health, try using a top drawer penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). Look for one that includes L-arginine, an ingredient which is helpful in the process of ensuring proper penis blood flow. Good luck!View Thread
It may be that your penis is staying irritated because the soap and/or laundry detergent you use is too harsh. Penis skin is very thin, and so it is especially sensitive; being kept inside two layers of clothing makes for a warm, moist environment which also makes the skin react negatively to some stimuli. So the cream the doctor recommended might not be working because the soap/detergent issue could be irritating your skin too much. Try something as mild and chemical/fragrance-free as possible. Also, you may want to incorporate a good penis nutrient cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) into your health routine. Pick one with vitamin E and shea butter, which help with keeping the skin properly moisturized. Good luck!View Thread
Although some white patches can be an early indicator of cancer, this is very rare; however, getting them checked is usually a good idea, just to put your mind at ease. Often white (or red) patches appear as the result of a yeast infection, and a doctor can also recommend the appropriate ointment for this issue as well. For general penis health, keep the tool nice and clean, and use a good penis nutrient formula (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) daily. If you use a formula that includes vitamin A, that can also help with offensive penis odors.View Thread
Every man is different, so this may be your body's version of seasonal affective disorder. If so, you can either learn to adjust to it or seek either medical or mental health assistance: a doctor may prescribe an erectile aid, although at your age that may seem to be jumping the gun. A mental health professional might be able to help you discover deeper reasons for the issue and suggest strategies for overcoming it. On the physical front, it's also just a good idea to ensure you are keeping your penis in optimal physical health; try adding a top flight penis nutrient cream (health professional recommend Man1 Man Oil) to your daily regimen. Look for a cream that contains L-arginine, an enzyme that helps blood vessels to expand and increases blood flow capabilities.View Thread
Congratulations on taking the plunge and doing something proactive about your diminishing sensitivity. You're right that many vibrators are designed for women, but they can easily be used on the penis as well, with really great results. (Speaking from experience here). Too many men are afraid of experimenting with sex toys and aids, even when they have a desire or functional need to. Penis sensitivity naturally declines with age, as you've noted; one thing you might want to try is regularly applying a really good penis nutrient formula (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). The trick is to find one that has ingredients that promote penis sensitivity, such as acetyl L carnitine. Good luck with your continued experiences!View Thread
First, while getting advice from a forum like this is a good idea, it's probably best to go see a doctor and rule out any medical issues that might be causing this problem; he may also have some treatments to suggest. This could be any number of issues, including a psychological block, but I'm wondering if it might be either a case of penile scarring (which happens fairly easily) leading to de-sensitization or an impediment to blood flow or both. When the penile skin builds up scar tissue, it makes it less sensitive and therefore less responsive to sexual manipulation; when blood flow is an issue, it may mean that the circulation is not strong and clear enough to maintain erection. A doctor can talk to you about these possibilities. You can also try to keep your penis in just generally good health — washing regularly, for example, and treating it with a penis nutrient cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) regularly. Good penis creams should have ingredients that act on scarring (such as acetyl L carnitine) and that help with blood circulation issues (such as L-arginine).View Thread
It does sound like your husband may have Peyronie's disease, and that could be causing some loss of penis sensitivity, affecting his arousal state. However, he may also have some psychological issues that are contributing to this and should consider seeing a therapist to determine what might be holding him back. He can also try regularly making use of a reputable penis vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). Look for one with acetyl L carnitine, which can enhance penis sensitivity by helping to avoid peripheral penis nerve injury. Good luck!View Thread
This is too long only if you feel it is too long; I myself love a long masturbation and feel especially blessed when I have the time to indulge in one. One piece of advice I would give you if you typically masturbate for lengthy periods of time is to think about regularly using a good penis nutrient cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil). Why? Well, after a really good long workout, your penis is apt to be sore or may have some skin irritation. Using a good cream, especially one with alpha lipoic acid which helps prevent penile "aging," keeps it feeling healthy and better prepared for the next go-round.View Thread
