Mens Health > Men’s Sexual Health
Men’s sexual health is clearly as important as women’s sexual health. Why then is theirs not as important to them? The consensus has it that men’s sexual health is often neglected by those who do not have someone to nudge them, nurture them, care for or care about them because men don’t pay heed to their health in general. This article, then, (as well as a number of other articles) will focus on men as they should be focused on—it will give them attention and will give attention to their sexual health concerns in ways they might not care to.
Prioritization is something most of us are naturally good at. But since what we prioritize is just as important as how we do it, it must be noted that when men’s sexual health is ticked off last on the list, it might be the top-listed problem down the line. Granted, they are working to make ends meet, working to support families, entertaining and dedicating time to family and friends, and then working some more…. These might contribute to the need for a man to at some point cry out that he needs
Yes! He needs to know that taking time for selfish things is taking time for selfless things. His sexual health in tact will ensure he can go on entertaining, providing, nurturing, and partying. His health in tact means he will not suffer and will not have to share his suffering by being (begrudgingly dependent upon others because he neglected his ’s sexual health issues or concerns and now is helpless.
For instance, the number of possible problems in the area of men’s sexual health that must get attention is great: erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, altered sex drive, and painful intercourse are, however neglected. Is it because men feel selfish if they take time out to attend regularly scheduled appointments? Is it because men get wrapped up in enjoying or consumed by doing the twelve hundred other daily duties that the last thing they would remember is a dental cleaning or a blood pressure check? Premature ejaculation can be treated easily with the drug tramadol and repeats can be given without going back to the doctor every time.
Men’s sexual health concerns are revealed—in general terms—in the statistics: they are four times less likely to see a doctor than women. This is according to Dr. Hilary Jones at netdoctor.co.uk. At the same time, however, 30% of all men suffer from some kind of sexual problem, and Sexual Health 11.
So it is shame? Control? Or is it the invincibility syndrome at any age that takes over and prevents men from preventing such health problems, illness, disorders, and diseases as epididymitis, hypertension, peptic ulcer, heart attack, cancer…. I will ask this again, in the next ten articles, hoping to get a response. Or at least get my men friends to their first middle-age checkup.
