How Smoking Affects Male Sexual Health


Today we will talk about everybody’s favourite subject of most people’s anyway – sex. A lot of science, a lot of investigation, a lot of money get spent to find a quick way to improve people’s sex life. There are a lot of things that you can do on your own, and they won’t be even cos you much. But I want to go over a few things that can help.

There are some natural substances you can use. But firstly let’s back up a little bit if you just work on keeping yourself healthy, your sex life is going to be better. First of all, you have to exercise. If you don’t exercise, you just don’t have the same experience. You are not going to have the blood flow to be able to get the sexual organs to work a well anyway. You are not going to have that endurance and the ability to do things that are required when people make love. So you have got to be in shape. The better shape you are – the more enjoyable the sex life.


You have got to take care of yourself. You don’t want to smoke. A lot of people think that smoking is a damage to the lungs. And yes it is. But it is most damaging to the circulatory system. Most smokers have some real circulation problem; the blood just doesn’t’ get delivered. And you can have a lot of numbness, you can have a lot of tissue damage. But the main thing id sex doesn’t work because the blood can’t be delivered, because you have been smoking. Something to think about.

Smoking makes your body more acid. And in acid environment nitric oxide things can’t be done as well. That is the important thing. You can’t perform the sexual act, male or female, if you can’t get good blood flow, you can’t make nitric oxide. It has to do with how the blood flow is to the genitals; it has to do with the whole response of the sexual act, it has to do with enjoying the sexual act.

And pretty important that you take care of these mechanisms, they are going to let the whole act occur. It is not just about finding the right pill to take. You can’t just take a pill and have a good experience. There are a lot of other things going on around there.
