How do you feel about your own sex drive? Do you think it’s too high, too low, or just about right?  I recently posed this question to my Instagram followers, and they were split on the answer. Just over half (56%) said they think it’s about right, while 20% said they think it’s too high and 24% said they think it’s too low.  Admittedly, this wasn’t a scientific survey, but the findings track with data from other sources. For instance, in a 2014 study published in the Journal of Sex Research involving more than 35,000 participants, 28% of men reported experiencing difficulty with hyp ..read more

Dating seems to be getting harder and harder.  The ghosting, the catfishing, the blatant lying.  We’ve all been there.  Finding the right match can sometimes feel like taking on a second (or third) job.  Yes, it can seem like work trying to find a way to balance attraction, chemistry, location, and timing to find “the one.”  Now add to that a sexually transmitted infection (STI), and things can get even more complicated. Sexually transmitted infections are nothing new.  They’ve literally been around for centuries.  These infections have gone by different name ..read more

The first scientific report describing the disease that later came to be known as AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) appeared more than 40 years ago. Since then, it is estimated that at least 70 million people around the world have been infected with HIV and that about half of them have died. Much has happened in the years since AIDS was first identified, including many positive developments in both prevention and treatment. Today, we seem to be hearing less and less about this epidemic in the media, which may inadvertently give the impression that we’re out of the woods. But we’re not ..read more

Watch enough sports or listen to any male-centric podcasts long enough and you’re bound to encounter an advertisement about hypogonadism (or “low T” as it’s often referred to).  Many of these ads promote new, “natural” ways to boost your testosterone levels.  Magic pills, potions, and powders that will make you feel decades younger.  But why is there so much attention given to this particular health condition? Low testosterone is certainly a growing problem.  As men get older, it’s almost an inevitable one.  Nearly 40% of men aged 45 years or older have low T.  An ..read more

The Better Sex Diet: Food & Supplements for Libido & Pleasure
Astroglide » Sexual Health
by Dr. Jess
4M ago
The pairing of food and sex is nothing new. Ancient civilizations classified a range of foods as aphrodisiacs – some for their shape, appearance, and texture, and others for their taste, color, and nutritional value. Food and sex have long been celebrated as indulgences with much in common. From the rush of dopamine in response to the anticipation of pleasure to the cascade of chemicals in the brain and body that we experience during a great meal or during great sex, it’s no surprise that gustatory pleasure often leads to erotic pleasure. Over the years, however, research has challenged the ex ..read more

Vasectomy and Sexual Function

As summer comes to a close, so does one of my busiest times of the year.  Urologists perform vasectomies all year long, but summer tends to be one of the more popular seasons to get snipped.  Perhaps it’s because men tend to take more time off work during the summer or because births are highest from July to October, but every year around this time, my office is flooded with men wanting to undergo vasectomy.  Add to that the recent Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court decision allowing states to restrict women’s reproductive freedoms, and you suddenly have an overwhelming number of me ..read more
