You may think you love your penis and treat it right, but are you absolutely sure? It does so much for you, it’s time you start doing more for it. And no, I’m not talking about THAT.

Here are some things you may be doing that are hurting your Johnson:

  1. You’re Not Working Out

According to studies from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, guys that exercise more have better erectile and sexual function. Are you a couch potato or hitting the gym 3-5 times per week? Your penis wants you to exercise more.

  1. You’re Smoking

Studies have also shown that men who smoke are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED). This goes for nicotine and cannabis.

  1. You’re Not Getting Laid Enough

Talk about a win/win. It turns out the more sex you have, the less likely you are to suffer from ED according to a study published in The American Journal of Medicine. Men that had sex less than one time per week had DOUBLE the incidence of ED as those men who had sex at least once a week. You should aim to have sex at least 3 times per week. If your lady claims to have a headache, tell her you have to or your dick will get sick.

  1. You’re Not Getting Enough Sleep

A 2011 study from the University of Chicago even found that men who get less than five hours of sleep a night for a week or longer suffer significantly lower testosterone levels. It’s important to get 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

  1. You’re Stressed

Stress causes our blood vessels to constrict. When that happens, blood has a harder time getting to your penis and you can get or keep it up. Exercise will help you destress, as will having more sex. Try to meditate as well to help you chill out and stay as far away as possible from negative people and situations.

  1. You’re Eating Way Too Much Junk Food

You already know eating junk food can pack on the pounds and cause heart disease and hypertension. But a 2011 Harvard study found that men who ate a lot of processed foods had poorer sperm quality than those who ate a healthy diet.

  1. You’re Binge-Watching TV

Studies have shown that men who watch more than 20 hours of TV have a 44% lower sperm count than men who watched very little TV. Lack of physical activity leads to weak sperm.

  1. Sunscreen

Sunscreen is great for preventing sunburn and skin cancer, but it also ups your odds of suffering from infertility. Chemicals used to protect against UV rays up a man’s chance of infertility. So be sure to always wash sunscreen off completely once your outdoor activities are over.

  1. Poor Dental Hygiene

Researchers from the Journal of Periodontology found gum disease is 7x more common in men with erectile dysfunction. Bacteria in your gums can travel throughout your entire body and cause inflammation, which can damage blood vessels in your penis and cause ED.

  1. You Don’t Drink Enough Coffee

Finally, a reason to drink more coffee. Researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center found that 42% of men who drink between 2 to 3 cups of coffee per day were less likely to report instances of erectile dysfunction. A reminder, a cup is not a giant mug or sugary Vente latte from Starbucks!
