Sexual health is an integral aspect of health and one that should not be taken lightly. Sexual health problems are quite common, even more than you think and if you are experiencing any difficulty in this aspect of your life, you should get help.
You should get help because a sexual health problem could be an indication of an underlying medical condition, and even if it’s not, it could affect your mental health in very important ways. So you should seek help if you suspect or know something is wrong.
While sexual health problems are common, you should not be quick to assume that you have a problem when you do not measure to some sexual performance standards.
The media has succeeded in giving off a false idea about sex and a lot of people have believed in this falsehood. Men especially worry about their sexual performance and some other things relating to sex. Women also worry but their concerns have to do more about their appearance.
As a man, you definitely must have heard quite a number of things relating to sex and maybe you are bothered that you do not fit in into the “ideal” and you think you have a problem. Before you make such conclusions, here are three things you should know:
- Regardless of what the media or pornography portrays, real sex usually lasts for just a few minutes. In other words, the average time for sexual intercourse is not as long as we are made to think
- The size of a man’s penis does not in any way affect sexual performance or satisfaction
- There is no perfect penis size. Although it is possible for a man to have a very small penis, the condition is very rare and it is often discovered at birth and not when a man is an adult
If you have difficulty achieving and maintaining an erection, a condition known as erectile dysfunction, or you have other problems such as premature ejaculation and lack of sexual desire, then you should see a doctor.
