Health Benefits of Red Wine

Good For the Heart: Red wine is apparently good for the ol’ ticker. That may be something worth considering for general heart health.

Good Anti-inflammatory Agent: Resveratrol in red wine helps to prevent aging, oxidation, and fungal infections caused by damaging factors like extreme temperatures, ultraviolet light and block the activation of the COX-2 enzyme, the usual suspect in bodily inflammation and pain.

Published

By

Here’s some unsexy news about getting it on: STD rates are at an all-time high. For guys, gonorrhea is becoming increasingly common.

gonorrhea-symptoms-for-man

Data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention shows that gonorrhea rates have doubled in guys from 2016 to 2017.

Gonorrhea is treatable with antibiotics, and will clear up within several days of being treated, according to Dr. Gabriel Rebick, clinical assistant professor of infectious diseases and immunology at NYU Langone Health.

However, regular STD testing and speedy treatment can help stop the spread, which makes it vital to head to the doctor once you think something is wrong. Although some guys with gonorrhea won’t exhibit any symptoms, there are certain tell-tale signs, particularly as the infection progresses, says Rebick.

Left untreated, gonorrhea infections could spread to the scrotum, prostate, testes, or more rarely, your blood, he explains. Once it spreads, the infection could cause scarring in the epididymis, a part of the testicle that stores and carries sperm, and possible result in infertility.

Here’s are four gonorrhea symptoms you should watch out for.

1) Discharge from your penis.
“Discharge is by far the most common sign of the infection,” says Rebick. Discharge may be thin or thick, depending on the guy. According to the CDC, guys may experience discharge within two weeks of being infected. Although color and consistency vary, no amount of discharge is normal, says Rebick. You should head to the doctor if you experience discharge of any sort.

2) Your butt itches.

Gonorrhea can also affect the rectum, which may cause anal itching and discharge or blood, according to the Mayo Clinic. Rebick says some people may experience diarrhea and pain when going to the bathroom.

3) A sore throat.

“It’s important to know that you can get gonorrhea from oral sex too,” says Rebick. He says many people who develop gonorrhea in their throat don’t have symptoms. However, some may experience a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes, according to the Mayo Clinic.

4) Pain or swelling.

Some guys may not have initial symptoms when they contract gonorrhea, Rebick says. But once the infection spreads to surrounding areas, like the scrotum and testicle, guys could develop an inflamed epididymis, which would be accompanied by groin pain, writes the Mayo Clinic.

Researchers Identify ‘Male Contraceptive Pill’ That Stops Sperm Without Affecting Hormones

Published

on

By

Researchers have identified a compound which turns off the sperm’s ability to swim, thereby significantly limiting fertilisation capabilities without causing any physical side effects.

The compound called EP055 affects the mobility of sperm, and was successful in tests with monkeys, suggesting a “male contraceptive pill” could be on the way.

In a study with monkeys, researchers found EP055 binds to sperm proteins and slows their mobility. The findings were published on Friday in the journal PLOS ONE.

Currently, condoms and surgical vasectomy are the only safe forms of birth control currently available for men.

There are hormonal drugs in clinical trials that target the production of sperm, but these affect the natural hormones in men much like female contraceptives affect hormones in women.

During the study, 30 hours following a high-dose intravenous infusion of EP055 in male monkeys, the researchers found no indication of normal sperm motility. Further, no physical side effects were observed.

“At 18 days post-infusion, all macaques showed signs of complete recovery,” said study co-investigator Mary Zelinski from Oregon National Primate Research Center at Oregon Health and Science University in the US.

“Simply put, the compound turns-off the sperm’s ability to swim, significantly limiting fertilization capabilities,” said lead investigator Michael O’Rand, a retired professor in University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine and President/CEO of Eppin Pharma Inc.

“This makes EP055 an ideal candidate for non-hormonal male contraception,” O’Rand added.

7 Foods You Should be Eating Before Having $ex

Everyone has their own version of a ritual before it becomes their time to shine, however, are you maximizing your full potential before $ex?

Aphrodisiacs are things that stimulate $exual desire or arouse excitement within the body. Different kinds of foods or drinks can jump-start this libido, and really spice things up in the bedroom. Aka it’s time to listen up and try eating these before $ex.

NUTS

Nuts contain large amounts of zinc, which is one of the key factors to a healthy libido. According to SELF, nuts also contain omega-3, which can cause a $exual response due to an increase in dopamine production.

STRAWBERRY

This one should be obvious. Strawberries have been used in a seductive manner for years now, bonus if they are covered in chocolate. The stunning red color, mixed with the sweet flavor of the berry, how could they not be absolutely tantalizing? Plus, back in the ancient Roman days, strawberries were known as a symbol of Venus.

COFFEE

Most of us drink coffee in the morning to help put a little extra pep in our step. So, why not give it a shot before $ex? Coffee helps to wake you up, get the blood flowing and increases stamina; all pretty useful, if not essential.

AVOCADOS

I guess there was a good reason for the avocado craze. According to PBS, “the Aztecs explained that [the avocado’s] name, ahucatl (meaning testicle), came not only from their physical appearance, but also from their ability to incite $exual passion.” The avocado helped many boost their immune system and their libido.

SEA FOOD

Seafood, oysters more specifically, is a great choice, again, because of our good friend, zinc. In addition to the zinc, hand feeding oysters or sushi could be all you need to spice it up in the bedroom.

BEETS

Maybe Dwight Schrute had it right all along. Beets contain tryptophan and betaine, which contribute to positive feelings. They also contain boron, which is a substance that helps to increase $ex hormones in the body.

DARK CHOCOLATE

Chocolate has always been a fan favorite for the indication of $ex. However, science has delved into the wonders behind what makes chocolate so powerful. Two essential parts were found phenethylamine and tryptophan. Apparently, these two components help us to fall in love and create serotonin in our brain.

POMEGRANATES

In 2011, it was discovered that by drinking pomegranate juice it lowered cortisol levels, thus increasing testosterone in men and women. Additionally, according to PBS, Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love planted the first pomegranate tree, and due to “their many seeds, pomegranates are often associated with fertility and abundance.”

Next time the mood strikes, impress your partner by stepping up your game and trying something new. What have you got to lose?
