Why Weight Loss Can Improve Male Sexual Health - By Marie K Gordon

I could reasonably claim without fear of contradiction, that virtually all women are obsessesd by their weight, their figure, their body image and their overall appearance in general!

Speaking as a woman, I suppose that I would have to admit that we are just never ever completely happy with ourselves! Just imagine what you might hear if you could listen in to female conversations,(we are much much more intimate with each other than men are you know!). Women talk to each other about the most trivial(often to men) things in abundant detail, home, family, men, makeup, sex, clothes, in fact probably about everything under the sun.

However, a pretty large part of womens' conversations with one another usually center round some aspect of their appearance in some shape or form. Mostly they are either on a diet, just finished with a diet , or trying to motivate themselves to start some new weight loss program or other!

What I am getting at here is that women can be obsessive about how they look, and in truth, most men probably don,t really understand why! If a woman asks her partner how she looks, say just before they are going out somewhere, ninety nine times out of one hundred he will say she looks fine, and I guess in his eyes so she does!

My partner does tell me that he actually means what he says when asked that question, but when a woman hears the word "fine", she probably thinks that there still must be something wrong somewhere,and will go and start changing her outfit all over again.

Lets face it though, men and women will never understand each other, and that's part of the attraction!

Women are also bombarded on a daily basis with magazines, advertisements, television etc, all trying to portray how we should look. and in fact how we should feel as well!

So we are under much more peer pressure about our looks, weight, image, etc, etc, than men ever will be! Probably it is little wonder then that most men are completely mystified by women in general, and most certainly where health and weight loss issues are concerned.

I am going to make the very serious point however that men should be much more concerned about these things than they are.

In the last ten years or so, there has been a much greater trend among men to be more concerned about their health and appearance, and this is particularly true of the younger man. Perhaps they also are increasingly influenced by male magazines who now feature these types of topics on a regular basis. This can only be good for male health awareness in general, at least in my view.

So what has all this got to do with the Male Sexual Health, that I mentioned in the title to this article! My point is, that if men were as image and appearance concious as the majority of women are, and with their weight in particular, then some really positive benefits would automatically occur with regard to their sexual performance.(it is the man who must "perform" when all is said and done)

Let me summarize by making the point that good sexual relations depend to a great extent on how good you feel about yourself, mentally as well as physically! So if men were as concerned about weight loss as most women are, I suggest that their sexual health would automatically benefit. The rigorous regime of healthy eating, exercise, and general self control required to succeed in losing weight, would by default make them much better in bed, to get down to the basics of it!

Everyone needs to feel good about themselves for better sex, but I think that this applies especially to men. It is a subject that I do go into in much greater detail in a report that I have written called "How To Have An Unforgettably Good Time Between The Sheets". This is a free bonus included with my Weight Loss Program, and amongst other things, there is a section in it called "Get Him Fit For Fooling Around".

A quick summary of this article might read, "If you are not healthy, you are not sexy", in my opinion at any rate!

To conclude, I have included a couple of really good exercises particularly beneficial to tightening up those all important muscles in the lower region.

1 Minute Back Stretch

- Sit with your legs straight out in front of you and your back straight.

- Place your right palm flat on the floor behind you as you twist your head and shoulders so that you are looking over your right shoulder.

- Make sure that you keep both buttocks flat on the floor.

- Hold for 15 then do the other side.

Repeat twice.

1 Minute Back Scratcher

- Sit with your legs stretched out in front of you and your back straight.

- Stretch your right arm and bend it at the elbow as if you are going to scratch your back between your shoulder blades.

- Reach your left arm behind your back to touch or hold the fingers of your right hand.

- Hold this position for 30 seconds.

- Repeat on the other side.

I hope you find these exercises helpful, do remember that everything in life is about striking a balance. Lets hope that men continue to take more care of themselves though!
