Men (and women) who have sensual relationships are always at risk for contracting a partner-transmitted disease; even rubbers, which provide a high level of protection, are not always foolproof. Because many diseases can be transmitted from one partner to another without either of them noticing any symptoms, staying healthy means being vigilant about VD prevention - an important issue when it comes to avoiding male organ problems like warts, sores, lesions and other unpleasant and embarrassing symptoms. Men who follow these guidelines for male organ care may lessen their chances of contracting a life-altering infection.
1) Use rubbers for every encounter - no exceptions. Even though rubber use does not guarantee safety, it greatly reduces the risk, so there is no excuse for shrugging them off, ever. Latex rubbers work best, but other options may be explored for those with a latex sensitivity. It is important to read package labeling carefully, because some materials, as well as certain novelty rubbers, do not provide much in the way of real protection and are designed only for aesthetic purposes.
2) Make sure to use the rubber correctly. Follow the instructions carefully for applying the rubber, and use it throughout the entire act. When switching positions, orifices - or partners - always start fresh with an unused rubber. Reusing rubbers, or going from one partner to another or one body part to another, can easily spread infections.
3) Use only water-based lubes. Other types of lubricants may damage the integrity of the rubber, causing it to rupture and expose both partners to potential infections.
4) Get tested. Making an annual - or twice-annual - trip to the doctor for a full round of testing is a must for all active men and women. For those who prefer not to see their general practitioner for this purpose, a VD clinic offers anonymity and speedy results.
5) Do not have relations with a partner who has sores, a rash, warts, or any type of discharge. These symptoms do not always indicate VD, but they certainly can; it is not worth taking a chance.
6) Keep in mind that many VDs can be present without any symptoms, and use this knowledge to reinforce the ‘always use a rubber’ rule.
7) Get vaccinated for Hepatitis B and HPV.
8) Urinate immediately after intimacy. The urine stream can remove infectious agents from the urethra, thus reducing the risk of infection.
9) Wash before and after intimacy. Plain soap can destroy some disease-causing viruses and bacteria - and clean junk is certainly more appealing to a partner.
10) Avoid sharing towels, clothing and other personal items.
Individuals who believe they may be infected should stop having relations until they can get checked by a doctor. If any of the tests are positive, it is very important to follow all of the doctor’s instructions for treatment, including taking all medications for the full recommended course. Many VDs are easily treated with a course of antibiotics or other medications; however, others involve more lengthy treatment, and in some cases, lifelong treatment may be required. Sensual activity should not be resumed until the doctor says it is OK, even if the symptoms have disappeared.
Extra care for overall male organ health
Maintaining manhood health does not stop with disease prevention; men need to take proactive steps to make sure that the equipment is as healthy and responsive as it can be. Supplementing the daily hygiene ritual with a top-notch male organ health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) is an excellent way to start. A cream like this cannot prevent VDs, but a formula enriched with disease-fighting nutrients such as vitamins C, B5 and D can support healthy immune function, while natural emollients (think Shea butter and vitamin E) soothe and smooth the surface of the skin, leaving it soft, touchable and receptive to pleasure.
