This is what happens to your penis as you grow older - and it doesn't just shrink The effects of age on manhood are numerous and not always pleasant Age is a cruel mistress. On the one hand, it supposedly comes with wisdom, feeling more comfortable in your skin and being liberated from sweating the small stuff. Then again, its not particularly celebrated - whereas skin elasticity and a youthful glow is. Its not just greying, hair-loss, aches, pains and wrinkles to worry about though.
A lot of these are inevitable . For half of the population, its also their manhood which shows the effects of the passing years. Your penis will age, and this is how. Getting all the uncomfortable details were Mens Health , who spoke to Brian Steixner, MD, the director of the Institute of Men’s Health for the Jersey Urology Group. Seeing purple: The aubergine is thought to represent first food, but it also has more sexual connotations. It will permanently shrink.
In a continuous and determined fashion. This is owing to once-normal and hearty cells being replaced by non-elastic fibers called collagen, which cause an overall diminished effect. One thing which can be done to lessen the effects of the collagen is to keep weight gain down as much as possible - especially around the mid-section. As weight gain increases around the belly, the fat pad pushes out and a larger penile percentage gets buried under the skin. It will develop a bend.
With age comes curvature. Its not your fault and theres very little you can do about it. Its simply because of repeated trauma from everyday (maybe) activities like sports and sex. These cause scar tissue to accumulate along the length of your penis. Whats more, this scar tissue does not care for symmetry. Into your sixties and seventies, Steixner told the site, it can get worse and worse. Ive seen patients (whose penises) look for all appearances like a question mark.. It will droop more.
In plain talk, as you get older your scrotum droops. This you can thank loss of muscle mass for. In its most extreme manifestation, this drooping can cause something which Steixner calls splash down which is your scrotum hitting the water when you sit to use the toilet. There may be performance issues.
Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, and with 30 million men affected worldwide, its not an uncommon problem. What causes it, however, is blood loss. As Steixner cheerily puts it, Having ED is like having a heart attack of the penis. And preventing it involves pretty much the same advice you give to someone with a heart condition. Eat well, exercise - control those and you should be fine.
Although treatment is big bucks and big business, Steixner does stress that taking care of yourself, health-wise, should mitigate against ED. And what all men should be conscious of. Finally, men should know to check for the signs of prostate and testicular cancer - especially as they age - but skin cancer is also a risk.
This is particularly true if youre a fan of sunbathing and tanning in the nude. Sunbathing in the nude is to be avoided. Steixner also says uncircumcised men are at risk, especially when their personal hygiene could be improved. Its not a huge number of men who are affected by this, but the long-term consequences are very unpleasant.
