Q: I saw ur tweets about prcessed food causing erectile dysfunction… how does that work? Keeping it up or getting it up at all?
Oh, let’s get this one out of the way quickly, shall we?
(First, my twitter is @bgg2wl. Just putting that out there.)
Yes, your diet affects your man’s (your?) ability to develop and maintain an erection. How? In a few ways. But first, let’s start with anatomy.
According to WebMD, when a man is stimulated, the brain reacts by telling the blood vessels in the p-nis to relax, thereby allowing blood to flow into the p-nis. At this point, the p-nis uses this blood flow to develop and sustain erection.
Let’s focus on the blood flow issue.
Your diet affects your body’s ability to transport blood freely everywhere it needs to go. An excess of sodium (salt, monosodium glutamate in its various forms) in the diet compels the body to retain water (lovingly referred to as “bloating” among the ladies), “which exerts excess fluid pressure on blood vessel walls. Those walls react to said stress by thickening and narrowing, leaving less space for the fluid already cramped in the blood compartment, raising resistance and requiring higher pressure to move blood to the organs. [source]”
Think about high cholesterol. The unhealthy fats (think trans fat and some saturated fat sources) and excess hyperprocessed grains that affect your high- and low-density lipoproteins (HDL and LDL, respectively) also cause high blood pressure, thereby inhibiting the body’s ability to do its job.
If the heart can’t pump blood adequately to the p-nis, then it stifles a man’s ability to form an erection. It’s that simple.
So…put your man on that “Good Sex” diet and hand your man a stalk of broccoli so that y’all can effectively help you build a fit booty together, please?
And I say that with love.
