Hot & helpful sex and health tips to help you get game and keep it.
Having an affair could lead to broken hearts — or a “broken” penis. A recent study showed that more than half of the injured penises coming through emergency rooms are the result of sexual encounters in extramarital affairs. (How do you explain that little accident to your wife? It’s certainly one way for karma to come back and bite you where it hurts most.) Unconventional places people meet during affairs, such as the back of a car, often lead to awkward bending, twisting or putting extra pressure on the penis that can cause injury, said the study’s lead researcher, Dr. Andrew Kramer, a urologist at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Fracturing the penis tears the tunica albuginea, causing hemorrhaging and swelling. It’s believed that many men don’t report the injury because of embarrassment.
Turns out guys are big softies. A stereotype-busting study from the Kinsey Institute reveals that tenderness and cuddling are actually more important to men than to women. Middle-aged men reported being happier in their relationships than women — especially if they kissed their wives often, and made it a priority to ensure she had orgasms. Women were more likely to be satisfied with their relationships after they had kids. The study, which analyzed more than 1,000 couples around the world, discovered relationships improved with age, with both men and women being happier the longer they’ve been together, and also reporting having better sex.
Save the little blue pill for a last resort, and in the meantime try natural ways to boost your sex life. Researchers at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, found mood lighting really does work to ignite sex drive. Light some candles or turn down the dimmer switch to turn on the libido. And a study reported in Food Research International concluded that saffron and ginseng are the best natural aphrodisiacs found in the kitchen — both appear to enhance sex drive and performance.
Before you visit your doctor to get a prescription to “fix” your flassing sex tuber, consider the following factors that could be causing the problem.
• Cold and flu remedies kill your libido and your Johnson, so use them sparingly.
• White bread and other refined carbs release sugars faster leading to energy slumps (and no energy to — you know).
• Blood pressure pills reduce libido and cause erectile dysfunction. Talk to your doctor about other options.
• Iron deficiency could decrease the quality of blood flow (we don’t need to elaborate on this one, right?) and reduce energy levels and stem blood flow to Mr. Not-So-Happy.
• A large waist (what they refer to as having an apple-shaped figure) decreases the amount of sex hormone-binding globulin, a protein produced in the liver.

A report from the American Heart Association reveals an increased risk of sudden death during sex for married men having affairs. The study showed being with younger women in “unfamiliar settings” creates more stress on men’s hearts. Scientists analyzed autopsy reports from nearly 6,000 sudden deaths and found that of those happening during sex, 93% were during affairs. Moral of the story: If you’re going to cheat, do it in a familiar setting — and make sure you’re young.
