Adults may feel embarrassed when they have questions about sensual activity, or when they find out that they have been operating all this time with misconceptions. It’s crucial that such embarrassment doesn’t get in men’s way of pursuing sensual education; a lack of knowledge in this area can not only lead to significant manhood health problems, but unplanned parenthood as well. Consider the following to better protect oneself and one’s partner. |
Nobody Knows Everything
Whether through arrogance or embarrassment, a man may wish to assume that he knows all there is to know about his male organ and about sensual activity. This may be the biggest barrier between him and actual knowledge.
The state of sensual education in the U.S. is not stellar. Most states don’t even mandate that sensual education be part of the curriculum; those that do allow programs to skip discussions of pregnancy prevention and sensual activity before marriage. If a guy is lucky, he may vaguely recall learning about a bunch of weird-sounding infections and watching his health teacher roll a barrier protector over a banana. Either way, there are likely things a guy never learned or has since forgotten. It’s never too late to get educated.
1) Pulling out will prevent pregnancy. This may or may not be true. Fluid released during the big finish contains the most seed, for sure, but pre-finish fluid may contain some as well. Plus, relying on the pull-out method is risky simply because a guy might start to leak before he’s fully exited his partner, as release can happen rather quickly sometimes. Barrier protection is the best way to prevent pregnancy - preferably in conjunction with a second form of birth control.
2) All barrier protections protect against sensually transmitted infections. Most do, but lambskin barriers do not. This type is effective in preventing pregnancy, but the material contains pores large enough for certain infections to pass through.
3) There’s always a symptom when a social disease is present. It would be very nice if this were true, but it’s simply not. There are several infections with no noticeable symptoms. Luckily, some are harmless. But even some of the more serious and contagious ones can be present without noticeable, or with barely noticeable, symptoms. Also consider the fact that most transmitted infections have a period between infection and symptom presentation (when the latter does occur), and that they could be passed along during this period.
4) If tests came back negative, the person is clean. Even more unsettling, perhaps, than the above is the fact that, when one goes in for sensual infection testing, not everything can be tested for! Ask one’s health professional what exactly is being tested for and what is not; ask the same of one’s partner. Understand that there is always a risk when having sensual activity.
5) Lubricant is optional. While it’s true that some partners produce enough lubrication to keep sensual activity comfortable, enjoyable and safe for the most part, even the wettest women out there are bound to run a bit dry now and then, particularly during rough or prolonged sessions. Lube isn’t just about personal preference; it protects delicate manhood and female organ skin from tears that not only hurt but provide harboring grounds for bacteria, viruses and fungi. Ample lubrication is also crucial for preventing barrier protection breakage.
6) Washing and wearing protection are all a man can do for his male organ. Actually, there are skin care products for men designed with the manhood in mind. Maintaining healthy skin condition is necessary in order to preserve sensitivity and keep the member attractive over time. Men should seek out a male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) with the skin-friendly ingredients Shea butter, vitamin E and vitamin C for rejuvenating the male organ. Using a moisturizer like this daily will protect against the ravages of friction from hands, bodies and clothing, keeping the male organ radiant and ready to go.
