Full hair is traditionally a symbol of strength, health and sexual stamina. Studies clearly show that the vast majority of women prefer men with full and strong hair, basically because it is a synonym for fertility. Hair loss is triggered by a variety of causes, genetic factors, hormonal factors, medical conditions as well as certain medications. In a first step, seeing a doctor is always recommended since serious medical conditions like thyroid gland problems, skin disorders or infections as well as a disease called Alopecia areata could be the reason.
Far more common are hormonal and genetic reasons, often hair thinning already starts in puberty or at relatively early age. The most effective, but painful and expensive treatment is surgical hair transplantation. Another option is a variety of anti hair loss products sold over the counter, including foams, pill supplements, shampoos and other special scalp treatment products. They all contain different ingredients that stimulate the blood flow in the scalp as well as the remaining hair follicles. While the effect it limited, many men report positive results from using Rogaine, Hairomega, Minoxidil or similar.
It is a relatively cheap, safe and still effective alternative the surgery, you should not expect miracles, but often a slight improvement results in a big boost of self-confidence. Worth a try, since the cost is really low compared to the reward you can expect.
Many so-called facts about the penis are just myths, time to bust 5 really popular ones:
1. Men with large palms, a large nose or large feed have a big penis
While tall men have a bigger penis than short men on average, statistics are just grand numbers with loads of exceptions. There are very short men with a really huge penis as well are very tall men with an extremely shirt penis. While penis size is mostly defined by the genes, it doesn't follow any predictable patterns and certainly can't be judged by the size of palms, nose, feet or any other part of the human body.
2. The penis is a muscle or bone
Having a bone in the penis would certainly be a very painful experience and although many men would love to be able to train their penis like muscles, it isn't a muscle. It primarily consists of a sponge like tissue, arteries and veins. An erection is purely based on the blood flow into the penis, zero muscles or bones involved.
3. The number of ejaculations in life is limited
Fortunately, it isn't, there isn't a sperm depot that's empty and doesn't get refilled after X ejaculations. The testicles constantly produce new sperms. While sperm quality and fertility slowly decreases the older an individual becomes, this doesn't influence the ability to ejaculate and has no relation to the number of overall ejaculations.
4. You last longer with a circumcised penis
Common believe, but there are no studies or scientific facts that would back up this claim. The average duration of intercourse isn't lower or higher in europe for example, where the majority of men is not circumcised. The nerve damage done by circumcision is quickly repaired by the body, the only exception is circumcision at adult age, but with refined surgical methods today, it is minimal anyway.
5. Women don't care for penis size
All about technique, size doesn't matter? This may be true for an average sized penis, but most women in anonymous surveys claim to have less fun with a penis that is significantly small than average (5-6 inches). This matches with the fact that the female orgasm can be achieved by clitoral stimulation only but is more intense and often longer with additional vaginal stimulation.
Some interesting facts concerning medication and ED, according to a study by the reputable British Journal of Urology International, the is a clear correlation between the amount of meds men have to take daily and the occurrence of moderate or temporary forms of erectile dysfunction. Men's Health summed this up in a nice infographics we'd like to share here, too:
Really shocking, especially high-blood pressure and anti-depression drugs often have negative side effects on the ability to get hard and lasting erections. So, before trying Viagra, Cialis or similar, visiting your doctor and having a close look at what medications you are taking and what alternatives exist may be a really smart decision.
