My girlfriend and I discovered that every time she gives me oral sex, her mouth gets really dry and later she gets this mouth ulcer. Can you tell me if the two are related?
It’s important for your girlfriend to have these post-oral sex mouth ulcers diagnosed as canker sores instead of cold sores to rule out type 1 herpes simplex.
Canker sores are shallow mouth ulcers that aren’t a symptom of an STD. In most cases, canker sores tend to develop because of stress, fatigue, viral illness or bacterial infection. Nevertheless, they are nothing to worry about seeing as they aren’t contagious and usually dissipate within a few days.
Cold sores, on the other hand, are red blisters that generally affect the lip and the edge of the mouth, and are a symptom of herpes simplex virus.
Please refrain from oral sex before her sores are diagnosed. If she does indeed have herpes, you are at risk for developing genital herpes because of this direct contact.
weak erectionsI’m 18 and I can't get it up like I used to. When I was younger I had a solid seven-inch penis, and now my erections are soft and it feels like not all the blood is getting there. I don't understand; I’m not in bad shape, and I don't smoke. How do I get back to the way it used to be?
You mean you don’t get it up like you used to when you were a pubescent 14-year-old boy with raging testosterone? Rest assured that no man can get an erection like he used to back then. However, at your young age, obtaining an erection shouldn’t be such a difficult endeavor.
Weak erections occur when there is insufficient blood flow to the penis, which can be caused by smoking, drinking and eating a high-fat diet. If you don’t smoke or drink excessively, and if you’re eating a healthy diet, psychological issues like low self-esteem or nervousness before sex might be the cause of your weak erection.
Try to eliminate the possible causes, and if you still don’t experience the kind of erection you had “back in the day,” seek the advice of a professional. Weak erections are not only important to treat because they don’t provide proper stimulation for your partner, but also because they can also lead to premature ejaculation.
Increasing semen volume and pleasuring a circumcised woman…
semen volumeIn regards to taking amino acids to increase semen volume, what is the daily milligram dosage that produces results?
Increasing semen volume is a common goal amongst men. Even if they aren’t having fertility issues, many men aim to increase their semen volume for personal reasons, like to have more confidence or to raise self-esteem in the bedroom… especially, if they’re lacking in other areas, like penis size.
Lysine is a recommended amino acid for increasing semen volume, with the daily nutritional requirement being 1 g to 1.5 g.
If you’re interested in increasing ejaculation volume in lieu of or in addition to sperm volume, 11 mg of zinc a day should suffice.
erection-killing condomWhenever I wear a condom, I end up going flaccid when being intimate with my girlfriend. She went on birth control for my sake, but as college students we can't always afford it. Is there a way to go about preventing being flaccid?
If you only have trouble maintaining an erection when you’re wearing a condom, it is safe to say that you’re not suffering from erectile dysfunction. This is a good thing, since we can deduce that there isn’t anything physically wrong with you.
My educated guess is that the condoms you’re using are either too small or aren’t providing you with enough stimulation. If going up a size doesn’t do the trick, opt for a thinner condom. Many trusted brands like Durex and Trojan offer condoms made from thinner latex that helps heighten penis sensitivity during sex all while offering you optimal protection.
If these recommendations still leave you flaccid, then discuss splitting the cost of birth control with your girlfriend for an easy solution to your problem.
female circumcisionMy woman is circumcised like most Egyptian women. Because there is no clitoris for stimulation I have tried all the other things (sweet talk, kisses, etc.), but they don’t work. How can I help her feel satisfied?
I’m afraid your desire to pleasure your wife goes against the original purpose of her circumcision. Many African and Middle Eastern women have been subject to the ritual of circumcision (which involves removing the clitoris and, in some cases, the labia) for the sole purpose of eliminating her ability to feel sexual pleasure.
But all hope is not lost for you, Romany. While most women achieve orgasm through clitoral stimulation, a small percentage (about 10%) can achieve it through vaginal intercourse. Also, arousal is possible for women through stimulation of alternate erogenous zones, like the neck, ears and nipples.
Start by stimulating these erogenous zones, and then indulging in some positions that help facilitate vaginal (or “G-spot”) orgasms, like positions that raise or tilt her pelvis upward.
