Do sex enhancement drugs improve sexual performance?

 

Among sexually active men, especially young people, there is a feeling of anxiety over their sexual performance. Sometimes, there is a basis for these feelings, other times, these feelings are borne out of a need to prove their manhood. These men worry about

  • the size of their penis,
  • hitting the right spots during sex,
  • giving their partners maximum pleasure during sex,
  • maintaining a good erection

 

When they find cause to be worried about their sexual performance and making their partner feel maximum pleasure, they seek advice from their peers. In most of the cases, these young men are advised to seek recourse in sex enhancement drugs, but do these drugs really enhance sexual performance?

What are sex enhancement drugs?

Sexual enhancement drugs enhance (normal/abnormal) erectile function and aphrodisiacs which increase sexual arousal and desire. Generally speaking, ‘male enhancement pills’ describe pills marketed to men. They contain mixtures of different herbal ingredients, and sellers often claim they will improve sexual performance and/or increase penis size. 

There’s no medical proof that these kinds of pills do what they claim to, so you might want to think twice about buying and using them. If you’re looking for pills to help improve your sex life, there are a few licensed treatments that can help. These can work by:

 

There are also other non-licensed sex pills that some people have tried, which include herbal products. These kinds of pills aren’t proven to work and can actually be dangerous since we are unsure about what they contain and how the combination of ingredients could affect your body. Sexual enhancers are drugs that enhance (normal/abnormal) erectile function and aphrodisiacs which increase sexual arousal and desire.

What are some examples?

  • Sildenafil (Viagra): for erectile dysfunction
  • Vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn)
  • Tadalafil (Cialis)
  • Avanafil (Stendra)
  • Priligy(dapoxetine): for pre-mature ejaculation

 

The medications listed above are used to treat erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Men seeking to improve their sexual performance also use herbal concoctions and male enhancement pills. The danger in using male enhancement pills and herbal concoctions is that in most cases, the chemical constituents and possible side effects are not known.

Possible side effects:

  • Headaches
  • Body aches and pains
  • Digestive system problems
  • Dizziness
  • Vision changes
  • Flushes. Flushes are temporary periods of redness of the skin. Flushes from ED medications may get worse when you:
    1. eat hot or spicy foods
    2. drink alcohol
  • are outside in warm temperatures
  • Congestion and runny nose

 

What you should do instead…

The penis works on blood pressure. Instead of taking sex enhancement drugs, try these to be in good sexual health.

  • Regular exercise. Thirty minutes a day of sweat-breaking exercises, such as running and swimming, can do wonders to boost your libido.
  • Consume more fruits and vegetables such as onions, garlic, bananas, chilies, and peppers.
  • Eat these meats, eggs, and other foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, tuna, avocados, and olive oil), Vitamin B-1 (pork, peanuts, and kidney beans).
  • Reduce stress
  • Kick bad habits such as smoking and excess alcohol consumption.
  • Get some sun. Sunlight stops the body’s production of melatonin. This hormone helps us sleep but also quiets our sexual urges. Less melatonin means the potential for more sexual desire.
  • Pay attention to your partner
  • Get more help if you need it. If you have erectile dysfunctionPeyronie’s disease, or other diagnosed disorders, you may need medical treatment. Don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor about how you can improve your sexual performance.
