According to recent surveys, 85% or more of all men experience some degree of lost penile sensation, some as early as their teenage years. Obviously, reduced sensitivity of the male organ is an alarming problem, with the first concern being whether there is any hope of restoring normal sensation. There are several possible causes for this potentially devastating issue, including underlying health problems such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease, as well as spinal injuries. |
For most men, however, the answer may be much more straightforward; frequent self-stimulation can, over time, reduce the tactile sensitivity of the penile head and shaft, leading to penile desensitization. Fortunately, researchers have identified a number of vitamins and minerals that support penile health and may help to protect against loss of sensation, or even restore diminished sensitivity.
How does self-pleasuring affect penile sensation? Self-stimulating can affect penile sensitivity in two basic ways:
1. Dry rubbing of the manhood causes friction, which results in damage to the outer layers of dermal tissue. The damage may not be visible to the naked eye, or it may only present as reddened skin or mild soreness which resolves quickly on its own; however, as the damaged skin cells are replaced, the new skin is thicker, creating a barrier between the outer layers of skin and the nerve receptors under the skin’s surface. This, of course, means that more friction is necessary to create a pleasurable sensation, beginning the cycle over again. Over time, men who self-pleasure often without protecting and nourishing the penile skin or providing the nutrient support needed to promote healing may experience a notable loss of sensitivity. 2. Under the skin covering the head and shaft of the male organ is a delicate network of nervous tissue. These tiny fibers are responsible for transmitting the tactile sensation which occurs during manual rubbing or intercourse to the brain, creating feelings of pleasure. However, constant friction caused by self-pleasuring, intercourse, or even restrictive clothing can damage the delicate nerve endings. Without sufficient nutrients such as the vitamins, minerals and amino acids needed to repair damaged nerve tissue quickly and stimulate proper nerve function, the rate of nerve cell death may outpace the formation of new tissue; this can result in a loss of sensation over time.
What are the symptoms of penile desensitization? Men who are experiencing loss of penile sensation will, of course, require greater stimulation to feel pleasure. This effect may range from mild to pronounced, with some men reporting that they are unable to feel any sensation on certain areas of the manhood. The results of this issue vary, with some men taking much longer to reach climax, and others becoming unable even to become aroused. In some cases, men with reduced penile sensitivity may climax without any feeling of pleasure.
How to prevent loss of penile sensitivity The key to preventing lost penile sensation is to provide the skin and nerves of the manhood with the nutrients needed to heal quickly and restore damaged tissue. In addition, moisturizing the male organ and creating a protective barrier to prevent dehydration protects the skin from further damage and leaves the dermal tissue smooth, supple, and responsive to the touch.
Can penile sensation be restored? For men whose lost penile sensation is the result of desensitized skin or nerve tissue, rebuilding the damaged cells through the use of vitamins such as C, E, and B5, as well as amino acids such as L-arginine, can restore the damaged tissue and promote improved sensitivity of the manhood.
How to provide nutritional support for the male organ Even for the most nutrition-savvy of men, getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals in the diet to promote penile health can prove to be a significant challenge; and unfortunately, the truth is that most oral nutritional supplements are poorly absorbed and do not provide the full benefits of the nutrients they contain. On the other hand, treating the penile skin directly, using a specialized penile health formula (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can ensure that these vitamins and minerals are delivered directly where they are needed most – to the skin of the manhood, where they can be absorbed and provide the maximum penile health benefits. In addition, men’s health treatments containing natural moisturizers such as shea butter, vitamin E and vitamin A can improve the overall texture and elasticity of the penile skin.
