    Too Much Sex a Bad Thing 

    PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has made the slogan “Too Much Sex a Bad Thing” something like a “brand” for their campaign for birth control for cats and dogs.

    Over the years they’ve produced a string of suitably ‘scandalous’ ads featuring scantily clad or naked women and the latest to join the strip roster is porn star/ actress Sasha Grey.

    You could ask why they haven’t used buff young men as well and you’d have to conclude they know as well as anyone who attracts the most attention.

    Sasha is photographed naked, glancing alluringly over her shoulder with the caption: “Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing: Have your cats and dogs spayed or neutered.”

    You can judge for yourself the effectiveness of the campaign:

    And if you really want to see why some folk object, take a look at one of the earlier campaigns which upset the Catholic church:

    Sex Good For Humans

    Interestingly, unless you’ve concerns about sexually transmitted diseases or over population, the same can’t be said for humans.

    Sex is Good for You was one of this blog’s most popular posts, and it’s true that the emotional and health benefits of an active sex life are being steadily recognised.

    Even for animals other than companion pets, it’s something to be generally encouraged. The company that produces a herbal sex tonic for men, Herbal Ignite, reports one happy customer for many years was the owner of the pure bred stallion, who popped a few pills of Ignite in his morning chaff to boost his performance.

    More Men Living Alone 

    Men in their 40s and 50s are the fastest growing part of Australia’s living-alone population – and according to new research many of them are lonely, struggling, and hoping their solo state is temporary.

    The increase in men alone is due to more never having married, and many more getting divorced but not living with their children, according to a recent Sydney Morning Herald report.

    A survey of 2006 census data, and a related La Trobe University project shows the proportion of people aged 40 to 49 who live on their own has risen 75 per cent from 5.2 per cent to 9.1 per cent.

    Living Alone in Your 40s

    People in their 40s are now more likely to live alone than those in their 20s or 30s.

    Living Alone in Australia, shows that for people under 60, living alone is mainly a male phenomenon, and the men have become older.

    The middle-aged men who were living alone were on average less well-off, less educated and in lower-status jobs compared with middle-aged women living alone, or other men, the paper said.

    They also tended to say they were lonely. ”They are considerably more socially disadvantaged,” researcher Professor David de Vaus said. ”It might be they find it harder to partner, or re-partner.”

    Have Your Say

    Are you living alone, or have you had a period living alone in the past? Which do you prefer? What are the pros and cons of living with someone else? Give us your ideas on what you enjoy the most.  If you’re a man who’s worried about starting a new relationship help is at hand at with a new natural sex enhancer which  could give you a new sense of confidence.

      I lived with a life partner for 43 years until she died. Living alone stinks. I am sure I will find someone to share my bed but I doubt that I will ever find another person to share my mind. Dont go to church and the person I’m looking for wont be there anyway. Wont find many superior minds in bars so not likely to look there. In the end I’ll settle for the bed being filed and my family, children and grandchildren sharing my mind.

        You are so right you will never find another companion who will share your life for 43 years like you last partner. but I wouldn’t be quite so defeatist about never finding someone special again. Why not think about how you can give back to your community in an area you enjoy and are interested in? You just might find someone who shares many of your interests – when you are focusing on needs beyond your own.

    Five Great Gift Ideas For Men 

    Get smart this year. Take the stress out of Christmas. Shop early and shop online. To help your deliberations we asked our man about the place Sam (late 20s and about to be married,)  to tell us what he wants. It might inspire you too.

    1.       Anything Top Gear. I love Top Gear, and I don’t mind watching them again and again. Whether it is a t-shirt saying “I am the Stig”, or the 4 DVD Stig helmet collection or the Top Gear top tunes CD. I just can’t have enough Top Gear just like 350 million other men around the globe.  http://www.officialproducts.co.uk/

    2.       Adventure activities. I was over the moon when I got a flight training voucher on my birthday from my fiancée.  In addition to that I would be equally delighted to get a voucher to drive a race car or a rally car. Anything that makes memorable memories is highly recommended. http://www.freemanx.co.nz

    3.       Rugby / cricket /basketball tickets. With Christmas being in middle of summer there is always a cricket match going on in some part of New Zealand or Australia. Also you can purchase Rugby League or Super 14 tickets in advance. Aussi NBL tickets can also be highly appreciated. http://premier.ticketek.co.nz/

    4. Tools/ Power tools. Depending on your budget, you can find a tool or a power fitting in your budget. Choices vary from a Swiss Army knife to Makita power drills and air compressors for Nail guns. https://www.toolking.com/

    5. Apple products /accessories. If you have a geek in your family or friends, then the ideal gift to give them is an Apple product. If your budget forbids you from spending bucket loads of money on Iphone or MacBook, then go for fancy accessories that bling your Iphone. http://www.gadgetgear.com.au

    PS For the man who has everything, Herbal Ignite will give a little zest to his love life. http://www.herbalignite.com

    Lower Testosterone Equals More Falls 

    herbal igniteIn sports, testosterone shots or creams are supposed to be magic bullets that spur athletes to train harder, run or bicycle more quickly, jump higher, swim faster, hit a baseball farther, recover sooner, and, let’s not forget, increased sex drive and combativeness.

    Testosterone injections can make male rats more aggressive in marking their territories, cause castrated red deer to grow antlers, and induce female rhesus monkeys to screech like males. In studies on humans, testosterone injections have increased and strengthened muscles.

    Now research has shown men 65 years and older with low testosterone have more falls than men of similar age with higher levels of the sex hormone.

    Researchers think this might be because low testosterone levels also lead to impaired vision, muddled thinking and poor coordination, according to a study by the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. The research found men with the lowest testosterone levels had a 40 per cent higher risk of falling.

    Die Sooner Too

    The study involved 2,587 men aged 65 to 99 starting in 2000 and continuing to March of 2005. Their testosterone levels were checked through a blood test, their grip strength, leg power and balance ability were recorded and every four months they reported whether they had fallen.

    Testosterone decline is a normal part of aging in men. The doctors noted that previous studies have shown that older men with reduced testosterone who got shots of testosterone experienced an increase in muscle mass and strength.

    Older men with low levels of the hormone testosterone may die sooner than other men their age with normal testosterone levels, another study suggests. But no “cause-and-effect” link has been established to justify testosterone supplementation, the professionals say.

    Regain Youth with Testosterone

    Researchers found that among 794 generally healthy older men, those with the lowest testosterone levels were 40 percent more likely to die within the 1985-2004 study period.

    “Like women on hormone replacement therapy, many older men are turning to testosterone therapy to regain some of what has been lost physically and mentally in the aging process,” said Dr. Eric Orwoll, a professor of medicine at the Oregon school.

    “These results validate the need for more research on this trend in treatment for men in the advanced years of life.”

    Testosterone in Herbal Products

    The herb tribulus terrestris has been shown in clinical trials in Europe to naturally build testosterone levels in men when taken as a dietary supplement. If you want to give testosterone levels a boost but don’t want to resort to injections, this in one option to consider.  Herbal Products like Herbal Ignite have been used with success by thousands of men to  increase testosterone levels and with them, enjoy the benefits including better sexual performance and higher energy levels.

    Sugar Kills Your Sex Life 

    cokeNext time you’re tempted to bite into a chocolate muffin at morning tea, just think: too much sugar could be making your sex life a turn off.

    New research shows high levels of fructose and glucose entering your blood can deactivate the gene controlling the amounts of sex hormones in both men and women, as revealed by a Canadian research published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.

    How Sugar Impacts Hormones

    The research on mice and human cell cultures shows we should replace simple sugars (like table sugar, glucose and fructose) with complex ones, like starches, found in grains, fruits, legumes (peas and beans), and other vegetables, if we want to keep the fires going in bed.

    That’s because when the simple sugars go to the liver to be metabolized, the excess is stored as fats. All that work for cells synthesizing fats, deactivates the SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) gene, plummeting the levels of SHBG protein in the bloodstream.

    This protein tunes the levels of testosterone and estrogen circulating through the body.

    Why that’s a Problem

    Less SHBG protein translates into higher testosterone and estrogen levels, increasing the likelihood of acne, infertility, polycystic ovaries, and uterine cancer in overweight women. T

    It also impairs the ratio of estrogen to testosterone, so women are more exposed to heart disease.

    Blood SHBG is already used to assess the levels of blood testosterone, to check for hormonal imbalances and likelihood of getting type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

    Previously, it was thought that high insulin levels lowered SHBG, as overweight, pre-diabetic persons possess high blood amounts of insulin and decreased SHBG levels.

    What To Do About It

    The answer is to eat less of the simple sugars – candies, sugary drinks – and more complex ones found in grains and vegetables.

    If you’ve already noted a decline in sexual performance you could consider supplementing with a herbal sexual enhancer like Herbal Ignite, made of totally natural herbal ingredients, while you get your lifestyle changes in place for long term benefits.

    Movember Madness 

    john keyTV3’s sports host Rod Cheeseman is in. Prime Minister John Key – though he says he’s in favour – won’t participate because he says his wife doesn’t like hairy men. But Bronagh, what’s not to like about our photo-shopped mo-wearing John Key? And we have to ask – would you date this man?

    We’re talking Movember, the annual, month-long celebration of the moustache, when thousands of men around NZ, Australia and now the world grow a moustache to highlight men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and depression.

    Mo Bros, supported by their Mo Sistas, start Movember (November 1st) clean shaven and then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache.

    Mo-Growing Online

    And this year Herbal Ignite’s general manager Sam Kamani has joined the fray with a mo-growing experiment we’ll track on line.

    Says Sam: “I’m quite enjoying my ‘motor-biker mo look’ even though my fiance hates it and is waiting for the days of Movember to finish.”

    During Movember, each Mo Bro effectively becomes a walking billboard for men’s health and, via their Mo, raises essential funds and awareness for Movember’s men’s health partners – The Cancer Society and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.

    The idea for Movember came about in 2003 when a few mates were having a beer in a small bar in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Inspired by the women’s health movement, it was recognized that men were lacking a way to engage and actively involve themselves in their own health.

    During a conversation about fashion and past trends, the idea came up to bring the moustache back for one month, and in doing so, have some fun, raise a small amount of money and hopefully encourage men to talk about their health with each other.

    $60m Raised Globally

    Since this time, Movember has continued to grow each year, both in terms of participation numbers and funds raised. In its first year, 30 Mo Bros took part in Movember and since 2006, the first year in New Zealand, more than 50,000 people have participated and $4million has been raised for Movember’s Kiwi men’s health partners.

    Today, in its sixth consecutive year, Movember now take splace not just in Australasia but also in the US, Canada, UK and Ireland.

    To date, Movember has raised AUS$60 million globally for the fight against prostate cancer and depression in men. And, more importantly, as a direct result, male awareness of health issues has improved with Movember helping to spread health messages directly to millions of Mo Bros & Sistas around the world.

    Going forward, Movember will continue to work towards helping to change established habits and attitudes and make men aware of the risks they face, thereby increasing early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

    Herbals For Prostate Health

    A range of herbs have been shown to improve prostate health, but non more so than saw palmetto, a herb grown in the US and found in Herbal Quup (pronounced Kew Up) a supplement to help reduce those midnight trips to the bathroom caused by an enlarged prostate.

    Quup contains saw palmetto, lycopene from tomatoes, the red ingredient which has found to have a good preventive action against prostate cancer, as well as zinc and selenium, both good for sperm health.

    Goodbye Timothy John Bickerstaff 

    Tim Bickerstaff

    Pay tribute to Tim or share your recollections of him by clicking “Reply” or filling in the text box above.

    Radio broadcaster and health products marketer Tim Bickerstaff was that unusual character – a macho man who didn’t mind taking the risk of other’s ridicule.

    You couldn’t say he had a small ego, but even he wouldn’t have thought that his passing would be the “Most Read” item on the NZ Herald’s webpage – partly because this man who was almost a recluse in his private life was found dead by trick-or-treat kids on Halloween.

    Famously dyslexic – he never could spell – he was also a brilliant marketer who could work out profit margins in seconds and recall sports statistics without a blink. In his later life that willingness to break convention included talking about men’s sex lives and erectile dysfunction.

    When he began raising the topic on radio with his brutal sense of humour 13 years ago, it was still a “cringe” topic. Men didn’t talk about it for fear of being “unmanly”, and women didn’t talk about it because they didn’t want their men to feel they’d had their balls cut off.

    Short-Lived Career as a Viagra Importer

    Tim didn’t care. Before Viagra was a legal prescription product in New Zealand he was buying it off the web and on-selling it to his car dealer and horse trainer friends – being Tim at a good profit margin of course.

    In the process he got practised at talking to his mates about whether they still “got it up”  or not – and so when Viagra was legally introduced he dropped the small scale importing and looked around for alternatives.

    And that was how Herbal Ignite, the men’s health product which Tim marketed with success for the next decade got launched – and talk about it he did until his death in October 2009. By then the company had developed a life of its own and was well established to continue strong growth without its feisty founder at the helm.

    Outrage Provoked Slashed Tyres

    That ability to crack convention could be seen again and again in Tim Bickerstaff’s life. At a time when political correctness hadn’t yet been invented, Tim provoked enough outrage to get his tyres slashed by irate listeners.

    Over 40 years in radio Tim was New Zealand’s answer to Derryn Hinch or US “shock jock” Howard Stern.  He was the “King of Contra” – the first to foster the negotiating skill whereby radio men sell “time” on air for products, and then sell those products on their own account.

    He foresaw an era of professional sport in the 1980s and was involved in backing the controversial Cavaliers Rugby tour to South Africa.

    King of ‘Contra’

    He famously had a company called Artnoc – Contra spelt backwards – and for most of his career he was never paid a salary by the station, he simply developed his own list of advertisers and sold their product on “time” – a certain number of minutes an hour – the station gave him in lieu of salary.

    Effectively it meant the radio host was competing with the station’s own sales staff, and no one did it better than Timothy John Bickerstaff.

    TVs, Refrigerators, microwaves, or Souvenir editions of All Black or All White books – Tim could sell them all, while at the same time drawing listeners with his controversial commentaries on sport.

    He had a prodigious memory for sports statistics, boxing in particular, and loved nothing better than staging sports quizzes on air.  But with TJB you could never be quite sure whether the show was for real or rigged.

    Love Him or Hate Him

    He loved a poster one he’d seen of a small boy with his fore finger in the air in a defiant “up you too” gesture, and there was always something of the delinquent in his anti-authoritarian salvos which fired up radio listeners.

    At one time he deliberately taunted traffic officers on air about the speed limit on a stretch of highway which he traversed on his way home at night – and found himself regularly copping tickets on said stretch. It’s no wonder that in the 70s and 80s he managed to make his “love him or hate him” show compulsive listening.

    Death On Air

    When interviewing high profile real estate auctioneer Dick Gladding ‘live’ on air in 1989 Tim asked Gladding if his agency used “ring-ins” to boost the bidding. Gladding replied “Tim, I feel sick”. To which Tim replied “I thought you would say that”.

    There was a long silent pause and Tim looked at Gladding. He had suffered a heart attack and was dead in the studio chair. (This was believed to be the first time in the history of world radio that this had ever happened).

    In the 90s he wrote a successful sports book with a team of journalists Heroes and Villains recalling some of the scandals of sport – as a tabloid man at heart there was nothing Tim liked better that a good scandal…

    Poking Finger At Authority

    Bickerstaff has gone and in our PC era there is no one nearly as funny or entertaining to follow him on air.  The spirit Tim embodied is found today more with Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson that Radio Live’s Michael Laws. It’s the spirit of the rebel male poking a finger at authority. He’s naughty but never loses his sense of humour.

    His legacy will live on, because Happy Families, the company he founded, succeeds him in good heart and Herbal Ignite has a strong future, but if you’ve got a favourite Bickerstaff story from the past we’d love to hear it.

    Is there a place for that unrepentant male in today’s media?  Has all this talking about “getting it up” just made males into “menopausal” men? Tell us your favourite Bickerstaff story, celebrate an era, add to the tributes below as we celebrate a hell raiser who was at heart a very private man.

    Warm regards

    I am of similar vintage to Tim.I never met him but his radio show in the seventies & eighties with Geoff Sinclair was compulsive listening.There has never been one to equal it since.It was one fantastic ride to be on & I am glad I got to experience two great talents & personalities.Radio is not the same now,but I still have the fantastic memories of those nightly programs when you rushed home from work to switch on to Radio Pacific at 5pm, a nightly ritual Monday to Friday.Irrepressible,sure,but you never wanted to miss one show,sheer entertainment everyone of them

    Thanks Tim,you are unforgettable,in the best way.

    Bruce.

    ————————————————————————————————————

    My condolences on the passing of Tim, and hope you are going well
    yourself through this time.

    I quite liked Tim and had just recently been thinking about taking a
    drive over to Whitianga to drop in and say hi. He was a great
    character and I’m glad to have gotten to know him and yourself.

    Best wishes with all, and my thoughts are with you.

    Best regards,

    Please accept our condolences on the passing of Tim.
    We are very sorry but we can’t attend Tim’s service in Manukau on the seventh.
    Let us know if there is anything we can help you with in Whitianga.

    Hope to meet you soon,

    Kindest regards,

    It was with considerable sadness that I saw Mondays paper which talked of Tims passing . I talked to him within the last little while and he seemed fineI feel that a part of my life has also passed….I knew Tim for almost 30 years and had a lot of enjoyable,funny and irreverent times with him…not so much since he made his home in Whitianga but we talked often

    He truly was a larger than life character and one of New Zealand’s great broadcasters…his legacy in the world of radio will endure.

    Regettably I am away from Auckland this Saturday and so cannot attend the funeral…but I will be thinking of him as I have done a lot over the last few days

    He was too young to go but he lived a fuller more exciting life than most and I’m sure Tim himself would acknowledge that

    All my love and best wishes

    Laura Hay (Derek Lowe’s former PA) is in London, as I am.  As two former Radio Pacific employees we worked with Tim Bickerstaff and we want to pass on our sincere condolences to you and his family.
    Tim was THE original contra king – before Murray Deaker thought of it!  In fact, Murray may have copied Tim in these endeavours.
    We were always intimidated by Tim’s presence, his manner, his manna, his directness. We would shake in our shoes if he pointed his finger at either one of us and want a discussion!  But, when we got to know him, we got to understand he was a pussy cat with a teddy bear covering.  And he could be very funny indeed.  He was his own man, certainly, and for that we always admired him.
    A literally large part of Radio Pacific has now gone.  Sports broadcasting was tame when Tim arrived at Pacific and not the same when he left.  He has left that important legacy among many others.  He made his mark and how wonderful that mark was.
    Our thoughts are with you and the wider Bickerstaff family and friends.
    All our love,
    Sandy Myhre

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very sad time with the loss of your special friend. Regards Carrick and the Thompson family.

    To Jenny Wheeler, the Bickerstaff family and Tim’s colleagues,
    Kindest regards and respects to you at this time. It was one of my career highlights to spend time and interview Tim a decade ago (for Brass magazine) – that’s where I’ve pulled quotes from.
    Like many Aucklanders young and old, Tim switched us on to sports news entertainment, and his work lives on.
    Apologies for not being able to be at the celebration tomorrow, as I’ll be on-air with my own radio show.

      My thoughts are with you at this time, and although we have never met, I did enjoy my chats with Tim on phone in recent years re our family history. I have many happy memories of Tim and his family during our growing years and he certainly lived life to the fullest, and will be sadly missed for his sense of humour alone!!!!!!!!!

      Tim’s Poem:
      The wine glass is empty, as the bar tender shouts:
      ‘Last call for drinks, before I throw you all out’

      The cab drivers waiting, to give you a ride.
      He’s taking you home, to it’s safety inside.

      A spare seat is waiting, at Heaven’s dining table.
      ‘Take your seat Timmy, and tell us a Fable!’

      You’ll make the angels laugh, and see the grin on God’s dial.
      With you at their table, they can’t help but smile!

      Your glass will never be empty, and hang-overs don’t exist.
      Have fun and drink up, ’cause you’ll never get p*ssed!

      You tried to disguise yourself as the big grizzly bear, but to me you were a big soft teddy with a heart of gold! Your house was always our ‘escape’ from life, and I will miss those weekend visits drinking wine and talking food!

      Safe trip Timmy, only you could have had the last laugh on Halloween of all days!
      All our love to Jenny and Tim’s friends and family

      Farwell Tim & good luck in your new appointment!

      We had some good years doing Ignite together, and we had some great discussions about people and world matters in the midst of it. I always appreciated your sharp attitude and awareness… and your wine cellar :)

      You moved on when you got a better deal, but I can’t complain as that was how I got the gig in the first place. Biz is biz and you were sharp and calculating. My respect for your formidable marketing capabilities stands. I regret never having a chance to catch up again.

      A great character moves on, and it was an honour to know and work with Tim.

      All my best to Jenny & all Tim’s friends and extended family.

    pelvisDoctors have recognised for years now that erectile dysfunction is often an early warning sign of coronary artery disease, often preceding the onset of atherosclerosis by three years.

    Not surprising then that doctors at medicine’s “cutting edge” should look to the stent – a standard treatment for coronary disease – for fixing erectile dysfunction.

    And that is just what is happening, with ten medical centers in the US embarking on a stent trial that will no doubt perk the attention of men with ED who have found no other alternative that works for them.

    While some doctors involved in the trial see the results as mainly being suitable for young men who have suffered traumatic injuries that affect arterial flow, others are more hopeful the technique – if successful – might have wider uses.

    From Heart to Pelvis

    Stents are metal mesh tubes that commonly are placed in heart arteries during angioplasty procedures.

    With coronary disease, arteries become occluded and blood flow is decreased. In the new procedure being trialled with 50 men in ten medical centres throughout the US, the stent is placed in arteries in the pelvis to open up the arteries and allow blood flow, thus correcting the erectile dysfunction.

    The stent surgery may be invasive, but if it works, it may become quite commercial in the sense that it will be popular, like the breast implant, according to ABC news.

    Viagra Doesn’t Work for 50%

    Lead researcher Dr Jason H Rogers (UC Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, CA) says studies have shown that up to half of the 25 million U.S. men who report erectile dysfunction, or ED, do not adequately respond to drugs such as Viagra and Cialis.

    “There is an unmet clinical need for some other therapy to help these men.”

    Besides Viagra and Cialis, other ED treatments include vacuum pumps, self-injected medications and implants, each of which has drawbacks, Rogers said.

    “Invasiveness and the lack of spontaneity for intercourse are two of the major drawbacks” of the alternatives to popular medications such as Viagra, Rogers said.

    Not Penile Implant

    In the study, a tiny mesh tube coated with a drug would be threaded though a small incision in the body and implanted in arteries that supply blood to the penis, Rogers said.

    “Our theory is there are men who have blockages in arteries that feed the penis and that limits their ability to get an erection,” Rogers said. “We are not putting stents inside the penis, or putting some rigid metal tubes in the penis to make it stiff.”

    Results will be known in 2011.  Would you be interested in having this treatment, or interested in your man having it? Is it just a natural progression of medical science for an increasingly aged population? Let us know what you think.

    Drunkest Ever Guy Goes For Beer 

    This guy gives new meaning to the word “paralytic” drunk and that’s for sure. The Drunkest Guy Ever has already gathered millions of YouTube views and you can see why – it’s horribly riveting to watch him scuttle around on his back like a crippled beetle, trying to right itself.

    And you can bet his problems in “getting up” will extend far beyond standing on his two legs.

    His girl friend – if this loser has a woman in his life which would be surprising – will have already discovered that excess alcohol consumption produces budding “super-studs” who end up being “all talk and no action!”

    Alcohol Abuse Causes Impotence

    Case studies have shown that long-term alcohol abuse causes alcohol impotence in men even when they are sober.

    The bottom line is that at best excess alcohol leads to chronic sexual under-performance and at worst chronic alcohol impotence.

    Yet other recent research shows women with any brains don’t stick around for men who drink and smoke excessively. Sorry buddy, failing to get more beer is the least of your problems!

    Herbal Help

    Herbal alternatives can help with erectile dysfunction, but if you’re drinking as heavily as our friend here is, there’s nothing going to save you from a life of bummed out sexual disappointments.  For the rest of the men in more control of their lives, there’s Herbal Ignite.

    Drink Hard, Fail in Bed 

    drinkWhen you are involved in a marketing a herbal supplement that helps men recover their mojo – as we are with Herbal Ignite – you frequently get men ringing up asking whether they can drink alcohol with the product.

    The answer is yes, no problem (ie., no unpleasant side effects) but I always want to ask them “Just how much alcohol are you planning on drinking?” That’s because the question raises red flags about how their drinking may be affecting their health.

    Are they in fact suffering from alcohol-related erectile dysfunction and expecting a herbal pill to fix the problem?

    For as wise old William (Shakespeare) of Stratford noted hundreds of years ago alcohol “provokes the desire but takes away the performance” (paraphrased.)

    The level of safe drinking recommended by medical authorities is around 14 units (glasses) a week for women and 21 a week for men. Indulge in a little “stress relief” via glass or bottle a few times a week and it takes no time at all to have exceeded the recommended levels.

    Moderation Good for Sex

    There’s no argument that small amounts of alcohol, in particular red wine, can be good for you. Alcohol consumed in moderate amounts can release sexual inhibitions, intensify libido and temporarily enhance feelings of wellbeing and self-esteem.

    A Harvard study which showed heavy drinkers and abstainers were the most likely to become impotent also showed moderate drinkers were the least likely to have erectile dysfunction problems.

    These findings are consistent with other studies, which have shown that people who have one or two drinks a day have lower cholesterol and therefore better blood flow. Good circulation is essential for male sexual performance and restricted blood circulation is also a cause of sexual difficulties among women.

    Heavy Drinking Deflates Mojo

    Long term over-consumption however affects the nervous system and impairs the impulses between the brain’s pituitary gland and the genitals, causing problems with triggering and sustaining an erection.

    Alcoholism also disrupts hormone levels, in particular, testosterone and estrogen. Low levels of testosterone diminish sexual drive and function.

    It’s not surprising then, given these facts, that excess alcohol consumption often produces budding “super-studs” who end up being “all talk and no action!”

    Case studies have shown that long-term alcohol abuse causes alcohol impotence in men even when they are sober.

    Regardless of whether over-consumption is caused by physical or psychological factors, the bottom line is that at best excess alcohol leads to chronic sexual under-performance and at worst chronic alcohol impotence.

    Solutions for Alcohol Caused Impotence

    The obvious answer is to seek help in controlling drinking.

    These days a large number of people are looking into alternative medication to get stronger erections and increase libido.

    While conventional remedies for Erectile Dysfunction such as Viagra or Cialis are helpful but they come with a huge price tag and side effects.

    Supplements like Herbal Ignite are proving increasingly popular cause of its 100% natural and herbal makeup.
