There are so many things that can stall out a man’s sex life like an old jalopy on an LA highway. There are work and kids and breakups and in-laws and home repairs, and… the list goes on. Not only is it sucking the joy of sex out of your life, but it’s also affecting your health. Let’s talk about some issues that can arise from a dry spell and how to get the fire back in your bed.You’re more prone to colds and the fluFewer tumbles in the sheets mean less of immunoglobulin A (IgA). IgA is the body’s first line of defense against invading viruses. According to a recent study out of Wilkes-Barre University, having sex just once or twice each week can boost IgA by 30 percent! Save your sniffles and get to bumpin’ uglies.Anxiety increasesSex is one of the best ways to destress and blow off steam. The brain releases pleasure chemicals like endorphins and oxytocin, which relaxes even the most savage soul. It also helped with stress-inducing situations like public speaking. There you go – the next time you have to address the boardroom, squeeze in a quickie beforehand.Relationship insecurities start to rear their ugly headLack of sex not only makes a man unhappy, but he can start to doubt his partner’s interest and commitment. This can cause anger, low self-esteem, anxiety, and breakups.Prostate cancer risk risesA recent study showed that men who ejaculate no less than 21 times each month experienced a 20 percent reduction in risk for prostate cancer.Erectile dysfunction risk increasesIt’s a use it or lose it situation. No, it won’t fall off, but men who don’t have sex all that often are twice as likely to get erectile dysfunction as men who do the wild thing once a week or more. The penis is a muscle, after all.How to Make Sex a Priority1. Do you know people that schedule sex, and you think, “Well, that doesn’t sound like fun.” On the contrary, these are people who are making sure they get it on. One thing though, don’t use the words “plan” or “schedule” since it makes it sound like sex is a chore like washing the dishes or cleaning the shower. Instead, extend an invitation to your partner like, “After dinner tonight, let’s have some dessert… in the bedroom.”2. Pay attention to your partner. How do affairs usually start? Overwhelmingly because partners don’t pay attention to each other, and someone else does. Have a mandatory time that cell phones and screens get turned off each day to make sure you’re connecting. You’ll probably see an increase in intimacy.3. Commit to being sexual with your partner. It’s what separates you from being just a friend or roommates. Make it a priority and talk about your current sex life and talk about what works and what needs some work.4. Get flirty and stoke the fire before you get horizontal (or vertical). Some couples get so caught up in the ho-hum day-to-day stuff that they forget they used to be really into their partner. Sent texts suggesting certain acts or send pics that will get your partner excited.5. Change it up! No one wants to do the same Tuesday night missionary forever, so take it up a notch. Have sex in different places in the house, at a hotel, in the car (but be careful), change positions, set a different mood, or add an adult toy or two to the fix. Most of all, have fun with it!How to Keep Your Penis Ready for Sex at the Drop of a Hat (or Pants)When trying to amp up your sex life, be sure to take good care of your penis.
