• Realistic figures

    Numbers of sperm in western man's semen have apparently declined by 50% in the past 40 years, according to a recent academic study. Unsurprisingly, the announcement has resulted in a cascade of follow up articles. Sex stories sell magazines and increase footfall to websites!

    The Guardian, an English language newspaper from the United Kingdom, published an article about the declining sperm counts and suggested that an average man ejaculates 14 gallons of semen in his sexual lifetime. 14 gallons in the United States of America, which is were the figure seems to have come from (see www.menshealth.com), is 52.997 litres.

    The average male ejaculate is 3.7 mL of semen according to the World Health Organisation, though some guys deliver significantly more. So, 14 USA gallons equates to 14,323 average sized shots, which is one a day for roughly 39 years and 3 months.

    The 14 gallons figure caused a lot of correspondence in the United Kingdom, because in the UK 14 gallons converts to 63.645 litres, i.e. 20% more than in the USA.

    The UK and the USA are known to be two countries separated by a common language. Less well known is that they are also two countries separated by different volumetric systems.

    Leave a comment below - tells us what you think.

    Here’s a selection of some of the correspondence printed in the Guardian:

    Andrew Barnard. Staines, Middlesex – In her article (Making babies is beginning to look as difficult for men as it always has for women, 27 July), Suzanne Moore states that the average man “produces 14 gallons of ejaculate in a lifetime”. One doesn’t have to be Einstein to work out that 14 gallons of semen would require 12,740 ejaculations of five millilitres volume (the oft-quoted average). This would mean an average of just over four ejaculations per week, every week for a 60-year period (or five per week over 50 years, etc), say from early teens to early seventies. This seems unlikely. Perhaps Ms Moore is confusing gallons with litres – 14 litres produces rather more believable averages. I think that some proper checking of journalists’ figures is required. 

    Mark Oates. London – Andrew Barnard (Letters, 2 August) wrote in response to Suzanne Moore’s article (Making babies is beginning to look as difficult for men as it always has for women, 27 July) that her statistics were exaggerated and need to be checked because they would mean “an average of just over four ejaculations per week”. Mr Barnard needs to check what his male friends are up to, because a 2007 survey by Cupid Bay suggested men ejaculate on average eight times a week. It may also be worth his while to read the current NHS guidance on avoiding prostate cancer which encourages ejaculating at least 21 times a month. His suggestion that the author might have got her gallons mixed up with litres is laughable and would leave a large number of men hitting the lifetime average in their teenage years.

    Derek Worthing. Bristol – I wonder whether Andrew Barnard has considered that Suzanne Moore’s statistics are correct and that he is just not trying hard enough?

    Meirion Bowen. London – Andrew Barnard is quite right, though I would have thought that ejaculation rates vary according to age – i.e. the frequency is greater from teenage years to about late 40s, but declines thereafter. I’m also curious to know how these figures were obtained. Were men (or their partners) asked to keep records of the number of ejaculations per day over an extended period? I understand also that boars can shoot out 800 milligrams at one go. What fun!

    Paul Tattam. Chinley, Derbyshire – Suzanne Moore estimated total male ejaculate at 14 gallons, Andrew Barnard thought it more likely to be 14 litres, but I reckon Max got it just about right in Phoenix Nights when he confided to Paddy that he’d only been allotted “a bucket and an ’alf”. According to my garden bucket that amounts to 20 litres.

    David Collins. Kidderminster, Worcestershire – I must dispute Andrew Barnard’s “oft-quoted average” volume of ejaculate as 5ml. As any pop fan with an interest in band name derivations knows, a “Lovin’ Spoonful” is “10cc”. This immediately reduces the average lifetime’s ejaculations to a more realistic 6,370. 

    Ian Grieve. "Gordon Bennett", Shropshire Union canal  After a brief discussion with my wife about the ongoing debate quantifying male ejaculation (Letters, 5 August), I have been told in no uncertain terms to keep my hands, and anything else, away from our measuring jug.

    Adrian Brodkin. London  Eight times a week? Fourteen gallons? Fourteen litres? 6,370 ejaculations per lifetime? The figures given for ejaculation statistics differ wildly but surely, as between all these numbers, it is appropriate for there to be a vas deferens? 

    Chris Baker. Willington, Derbyshire  Has the stream of letters about ejaculation reached its climax (Letters 8 August) or are there lots more to come?

    Michael Cunningham, Wolverhampton  Chris Baker wonders whether the ejaculation letters have reached a climax (Letters, 10 August). Is it possible that  your male correspondents have finished sooner than their female counterparts? 

  • Velv’Or’s JBoa is just one of our simple yet beautiful cockrings for the ultimate gentleman. 

    With one, you'll do more than just rise. Once erect and enRinged with a JBoa you'll be as firm and as functional as one of our new elegant Jewel didoes. You’ll be hitting all the right spots.

    The JBoa is simplicity: a silicone cord held in a loop by a stainless steel cylinder. It, the JBoa Ridged and the JBoa Necklace / Bracelet with its extra long cord, are our ready to wear designs. The more ornately designed JBoa Special and the JPython, with its silver cylinder both belong to our bespoke range.

    The cord used is made of a comfortable to the touch, FDA approved, black silicone. The metal cylinders of the JBoas are fashioned from stainless steel, and those of the JPython are crafted from silver by our master silversmith. Ready to wear or bespoke, each comes in its own aluminium storage case with instructions on how to rethread the cylinder with the cord should they become separated.

    We know you’ll enjoy these amazing high quality products, so much so that you’ll be tempted to over use them. Please don’t! We don't want to be thought of as spoil sports, but we recommend you wear one for no longer than 30 minutes at any time.

    To wear, simply follow these instructions and you’ll remain constricted and ready for action:

    - Pull the silicone cord through the cylinder, so that the loop is large enough to fit around the shaft of your erect penis

    - Place the loop over your erection and move it down the shaft so that it is positioned at the base, as close to your body as possible

    - When in place, hold the cylinder and pull the loose ends of the cord so that the loop tightens around your penis and is comfortable

    It is as simple as that, you provide the wherewithal - an erect penis - and our JBoa or JPython will keep it firm and enduring.

    Once adjusted, enjoy yourself being conStricted. 

    For maximum comfort, we recommend you position the ends of the cord so that they hang beneath your penis, though the choice is yours. 

    If using the JBoa Necklace / Bracelet it is up to you to decide what you want to do with the longer cord. Why not try double looping your shaft, or wrapping the cord ends around your balls, or perhaps your partner will use the cord to whip you into a frenzy. Who knows where your play will take you.

    Instead of thinking what you might do, visit our Online store today to purchase your JBoa or your JPyhon. Better still pick up two JBoas at a special discounted price with our ConStricted Gentleman offer. Whilst at the store sign up for our newsletter and, if you are interested, contact us to find out more about our new Jewel.

  • What's that useless piece of skin at the end of a penis called? 

    Well it all depends on how you look at it. It’s a matter of perspective.

    Some people will say it’s a foreskin, the more medical amongst us may call it a prepuce, and some folks will have a personally favoured name for it. Then there are folks who come at it from a different perspective. They’ll tell you it’s a man or a waste of space.  And of course the analytical amongst us will ask, "What does "useless" mean in this context?" 

    The answers given to this seemingly simple question depend on the individual’s upbringing, perceptions and perspectives. Whether your answer was a foreskin, a prepuce, or a man, it will not change the fact that a penis is a penis, unless it has been circumcised - in which case it is something a bit less than nature intended. 

    As for the term "useless", context is everything. In reality few things are useless in life. The foreskin has evolved as part of the human penis, so it does have some purpose in order to have been retained through evolutionary selection. It is just a matter of seeing the purpose, and realizing it is not useless.

    In a similar way, some men think a cock ring as being useless for them. These men are happy with their hard-ons. For them cock rings can be synonymous with erectile dysfunction, flaccidity at the wrong time, soft-ons, … 

    To our minds though their perceptions are limiting their experiences. Even the man capable of a robustly engorged erection can benefit from the right type of cock ring. That's why at Velv'Or we offer a wide range of rings: from our stretchy BeauGosse BG 001 that will definitely keep you rock hard, through to our platinum King JCobra, that bestows a marked level of exuberance. 

    We are proud of all our range, especially our bright and beautiful 3D printed cock rings: the JNada, the JNaja, the JNamo, and the JNata. Available in a range of colours and sizes, they can all help you make the most of your manhood whether worn then flaccid or ready for action. You will look stylishly fit EnRinged with whichever one you wear. It will maximize the blood retained in your penis boosting its length and girth. It will help sustain your erection, your orgasm will be more intense and you will find you ejaculate with more force. Wearing one adds panache, pizazz and potency.

    So if you’re not one of our League of EnRinged Gentlemen, who know the usefulness of our cock rings, have a look at what is available in our online store and purchase one or two. And if you are one of the League, then why not add to your collection?

    Wear a Velv’Or cock ring and there’ll be no risk of being thought of as a useless piece of skin at the end of your penis.

  • A short while ago I was introduced to Erotica Books writer Charlie Wish by Taylor from Organic Loven. Charlie was very interested in the JNaja and decided to include it in his latest book called The Not So Good Samaritan a book about Gary that finds his dominant streak that has been buried inside of him all his life.

    Read the book and find out when and how he becomes a member of Velv'Or's League Of EnRinged Gentlemen.

  • Does using one of our invigorating Velv’Or cock rings, benefit you more than giving you that enRinged feeling and empowering your erection so your sexual activities last longer? 

    The answer is a rock hard, “Yes”. 

    The longer you are enjoying whatever it is you get up to when enRinged, the more likely you will become sweaty. And, the sweatier you become the better it is for your skin microbiome.

    What’s you skin microbiome and why does it like sweat? 

    Your skin microbiome is the group of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc.) that live on the surface of your body. And, the compounds released in your sweat will help maintain and feed the microorganisms helping keep your skin microbiome healthy.

    Can we define what is a healthy skin microbiome?

    Studies have revealed that the types and quantities of microorganisms on people’s skin differ remarkably. Much of this diversity remains unexplained, though diet, environment, the levels of light exposure, genetics, gender, age and early exposure to microorganism have all been implicated. So as yet no one type of skin microbiome is considered ideal. What we do know is that the microorganisms living on your skin are primarily affected by whether the skin is moist, dry, hairy, or oily. 

    So as a man, your penis, your scrotum and your perineum with their different skin types will each have different types of microorganism living on them. In addition, if your penis has been circumcised or has had any other type of modification, such as a piercing or a subincision or a superincision, then the microorganisms living on it will be different from that would have existed had the modification not been made.

    So why is your skin microbiome important? 

    The main benefit of having healthy skin microbiomes is that the skin microbiome helps keep your immune system and your defences to infection in good shape. That’s not to say that all harmful infections can be stopped by a health skin microbiome, some will not be. The skin microbiome also aids in wound healing, limits exposure to allergens and UV radiation, and minimizes oxidative damage.

    Your skin microbiome and the immune system in the skin work in harmony to reduce inflammation. When the balance of microorganisms in the microbiome is off, the immune system can release various antimicrobial compounds to help rebalance it. Similarly, the beneficial microorganisms in the microbiome can inhibit the release of inflammatory compounds from the skin immune system. 

    A healthy microbiome protects against infection by crowding out overgrowth of harmful microorganisms. The skin microbiome helps create a relatively acidic environment on your skin, which also inhibits growth of the harmful microorganisms.

    What can you do to look after your skin microbiome?

    You can do several things to help your skin microbiome, in particular by avoiding activities that will damage the microorganisms. 

    Keep clean. Wash carefully and dry thoroughly afterwards. 

    If possible, avoid using harsh chemicals on your skin that are intended to kill bacteria and fungi. These are sometimes present in soaps, shampoos and shower gels. Make sure as well that the clothes you wear have been laundered so that there are no washing product residues left on them to come into contact with your skin.

    Creams containing antibiotic for topical application will also affect the skin microbiome, as can some antibiotics that even if taken orally can be excreted onto your skin. Ask your doctor or pharmacist in what way will any medicines you are using affect your skin microbiome and what you can do about it.

    Minimise the risks of introducing harmful microorganisms to your skin microbiome. Be mindful that you swop microorganisms during any form of contact with another person’s body, but don't lose sight of the fact that we have evolved to accommodate that happening. It is part of the evolutionary process that has helped us become what we are today. So don’t fixate about it, but if uncertain take precautions or refrain from activities you feel uncomfortable about. Condoms reduce the chances of harmful microbes being spread during sexual activities.

    Eat a healthy diet. What nourishes your body will also nourish your skin microbiome. Remember that some of the compounds in what you eat, e.g. garlic flavours, will be excreted through your skin and will affect the microorganisms. Eating excesses of certain foods, e.g. sugars, will affect the microorganisms on your skin.

    Exercise regularly, so that you sweat. There are many ways of doing this – some more satisfying than others. Instead of hitting the gym or taking a sauna why not enjoy a prolonged yet vigorous sex session? Wearing a Velv’Or cock ring will help you and as you become sweatier your skin microbiome will be thanking you. 

    If you don't have one or two of our cock rings already then have a look at what is available on our online store.
  • I lately had an interview with The Sexpert from the Australian store AdultSmart.

    Please check it out at http://adultsmart.com.au/blog/jelle-plantenga/

  • With a huge smile on my face I can tell you that Sex Toy Reviewer Jay from Tess Tessts adjusted his view on cockrings! For years he thought they were stupid and only for men with erection problems!
    After wearing the JNaja he set aside his prejudices and now is a very PROUD member of the League Of EnRinged Gentlemen!

    Here is a small part of the review in Dutch:

    Al draagt een aap een gouden cockring

    Velv’Or JNaja is volgens de maker een nieuwe ervaring als het gaat om het dragen van cockringen. Ik heb natuurlijk al eens wat cockringen geprobeerd, en mijn relatie met deze “uithoudingsvermogen” verhogende ringen is er een van haat/liefde.

    Voornamelijk omdat ik het omdoen van alle “vaste” (dus niet verstelbare van rubber of staal of normaal hout of wat voor materiaal dan ook) een enorm geklooi is met glijdmiddel, knellingen op plekken waar ik die ECHT niet wil hebben, en na het klaarkomen een lange periode van “OMG DAT DING MOET NU AF” in acht nemen wachtende tot mijn harde lid zacht wordt en ik met veel geglibber en gevloek de ring weer af mag doen.

    Daarbij komt ook nog het feit dat ik jarenlang vond dat cockringen stom waren en vooral voor mannen die hun piemel niet hard konden houden. Wist ik veel, dat zijn van die vooroordelen die je hebt, maar inmiddels ben ik daarvan af gestapt. Eigenlijk vooral ook door mijn ervaring met de Velv’Or JNaja.

    Toen ik deze, in mijn geval, rode hard nylon cockring met perineum stimulator, via Euphoria mocht ontvangen kon je je ook wel voorstellen dat, gezien mijn eerdere opmerkingen, het enthousiasme nou niet bepaald hoog was van mijn kant.

    Maar, aangezien ik alles test wat we ontvangen eerlijk review, ging ik toch iets verder kijken dan mijn lang neus was.

  • The brand name Velv'Or came to life after a long brainstorm session with a close friend of mine. The same counts for the name JCobra. Now I like your support as well by helping me to find a cool name for the brand new dildo. One that is created to be used by the partner and hits the G-Spot or P-Spot perfectly.

    I am looking forward reading your comments.

  • Great review of our JNada by a Dutch member of our League of EnRinged Gentlemen

    The new JNada is delivered to me in a shiny a plastic bag instead of the stylish box in which the JNaja was delivered to me.

    The JNada is not the first product from Velv’Or I own therefore I can compare the JNada with the JNaja.

    Wearing the JNada feels different from wearing the same size JNaja while there is less pressure. Less pressure is good when wearing it while being seated at work or biking. The perineum part of the JNaja is sometimes a challenge when I wear the JNaja in my daily life while it can get in the way. When the body says stop you should listen to your body and un-ring yourself. Being enringed for many years I know that my body sometimes says Stop.

    Certainly, the JNada is used at special occasions, but the main reason for buying the JNada is the comfort of wearing it all day. Needless to say that wearing the JNada lifts your male spirit like the JNaja does!!

    The bed part is not the most important to me. The sex is different and of course the aid of the Gentlemen's Ring is noticeable. The best part for me is not having to worry about the JNada afterwards. Where most Cock Rings have to be removed at some point the JNada can stay in his place. The JNaja “works” better in bed and when I want the challenge or stimulation I would choose the JNada, or both of them. Yes, they fit nicely together giving some vibrations when moving against one another. I think a novice user might not have the space in “the package” to do this. But believe me in time things become more flexible.

    My negative remark on the JNada as well ast the JNaja is the discoloration. If you buy a nice colourful JNada or JNaja  it is a little pity to see the colour disappear in time. Personally I do not think this is a unique feature as Velv'Or says, it is just a fact of the color fading. And it is not even in the sunlight for most of the time.

    Some might think that there also is an other issue while most shops only sell 45 mm, 50 mm, and 55 mm as JNaja sizes.
    I can not wear 45 mm or 50 mm comfortably for a long time. For me 47,5 mm is really the best size to wear. So buy your JNada at Velv’Or and wait for your JNada to be printed specially for You. I think it is worth waiting for to have your JNada or JNaja is the perfect size for you.

  • You’ve got your eyes on one of our stunningly beautiful JCobras. In fact, you’ve had your eyes on one for some time now. So what’s stopping you contacting us to enquire about having one made for you? An enquiry does not mean you will be committed to commissioning one for yourself. Though, it does mean we can provide answers to your questions. Write, message, Skype or phone us – find out how to here.

    In the meantime, here are some thoughts that may help you obtain your JCobra. 

    Is it that your JCobra is not high enough up your wish list of things you desire? What might help you reprioritize you list? At Velv’Or we say review your wish list regularly. Once every six months might be sensible. Keep only those items on your list that are going to bring you pleasure once you get them. Place them in order – the more pleasure they are likely to bring you the closer they should be to the top of you list. When doing this consider how quickly things are moving off your list and how long it might take for your JCobra to reach a position where you’ll reward yourself by ordering it. And, don't leave it so long that your wish list has become a bucket list. Life is for the living – so get out there and indulge yourself as soon as possible.

    Is it that you are worried you might order the wrong size JCobra? We won’t say we’ll take you by the hand because you could get the wrong idea, but we will guide you through the process so that you can be sure you get the right size and will be assured of benefiting from your JCobra.

    Is the price of your JCobra holding you back from commissioning it? Yes, they are bespoke luxury items, that can't be denied. Their prices reflect the craftsmanship that has gone into their design and creation, as well as reflecting the types and amounts of noble metals used. We offer hollow and solid versions. It could be that a lighter hollow version would suit you more than a heavier solid version.

    The JCobra is intended to last: so many things these days are thrown away all too soon. With that in mind, think of how much pleasure your JCobra will bring you each time you wear it. Think too of how often you want to experience that level of pleasure across the years to come. Is a JCobra such a big investment when you think in those terms? No. So why shouldn't you indulge yourself now? Or will you still be coveting a JCobra when your wish list has become your bucket list? Can you truly afford to miss out? 

    A JCobra is a longterm commitment to yourself, to your sexuality, and to both the mental and physical aspects of your sexual health. The sooner you are EnRinged with your JCobra, the more you’ll be able to enjoy your investment.

  • Many people ask me: "Jelle, can the BeauGosse BG 001 or JBoa be worn around the Penis & Scrotum/Balls like a normal cock ring?"

    My answer always is: Yes, but I created them Just for the Penis; wearing them just around the penis makes them more effective.

    The next question normally is: "Where on the penis should I wear a BeauGosse BG 001 or JBoa?"

    My answer to this question is always: As close to the body as possible, so the base of the penis is ConStricted. By doing this you create a barrier, which lets only minimal amounts of blood out of the spongy chambers (Corpora Cavernosa & Corpus Spongisum) in the penis. This results in a firmer and fuller erection.

    The ConStricted gentleman can decide for himself when he wants to release the effect, which he can do by moving the BeauGosse BG 001 forward up the shaft of his penis or by adjusting the JBoa's loop by lowering the stainless steel cylinder/toggle.

    Another frequently asked question is: "Can the BeauGosse BG 001 or the JBoa only be worn during intercourse, or can they also be worn during masturbation, or even when not being active sexually?"

    To this I always answer that both can be worn whatever you are doing. They will intensify the pleasure and sensation the gentleman is experiencing while his penis is being stroked. The feeling of a shredded ConStricted penis cannot be compared with the feeling of one that is not ConStricted. It is as simple as that. His ejaculation will blow him into heaven.

    And even if worn when not active sexually the experience will be rewarding. I always wear one of them during, and for a time after, showering. I do this as it make me feel more masculine, and it helps enlarge the blood chambers (Corpora Cavernosa & Corpus Spongisum) of my penis. My penis then remains more there/in the moment for the rest of the day.

    To sum things up, both the BeauGosse BG 001 and the JBoa can both be worn during and for multiple experiences.

    I wish you a sensual day & hope you enjoyed reading this newsletter!! If you have any questions for a next newsletter feel free to mention them in a reply.

  • Let’s talk landing strips – and lets get it clear from the start, we’re talking the aeronautical type not the sculpted pubic hair type. 

    Have you ever been in a plane in a bumpy landing, or had your flight delayed because of poor local conditions? 

    Henk Hesselink, Senior Research and Development Manager at the Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR), is leading a team to help overcome some of those experiences. 

    Henk and his team are working on the EU funded Endless Runway project. They know that a circular runway, compared with a straight landing strip, can markedly improving take off and landing. In turn, this increases the efficiency and effectiveness of the airport and the user experience all round.

    Encircling an airport with a runway allows planes to take off and land with less impact from wind direction. The planes just land on or take off from the least wind-affected section of the runway. If the wind changes direction, then the pilots use another section of the landing strip. That means fewer delays waiting for the correct conditions and fewer bad experiences for all those on board.

    Circular runways allow airports to be more functional and make better use of the land they occupy. They help squeeze out an improved performance from the resources available. 

    The idea of a circular runway may sound odd - that’s probably because we’ve lived with and become accustomed to the long straight ones for many years now. The idea though is not new. Back in 1931, architect Charles Glover proposed to increase airborne traffic in London by building an elevated airport above the railway sidings of King’s Cross.

    At Velv’Or, we are applying modern thinking to an old idea, too. 

    At Velv’Or, we know what EnRinging your resources can do for you. You’ll find your assets are maximised using one of our rings or loops. 

    Choose from our bespoke range of JCobras and JPythons, or from our ready to wear JNajas, JNadas and JBoas. They will make your more effective: as will wearing one of our BeauGosse. There’ll certainly be fewer bumpy rides for you!

    Visit our online store to join our League of EnRinged Gentlemen. Whether you choose bespoke first class or ready to wear business class, you’ll find yourself coming in to land in comfort.

    The images we found on the web and are not ours. We hope the owners do not mind us using them. If so please let us know so we will delete them!!

    The Exercise That Could Save Your Sex Life

    That's right: There's a workout for your penis

    You probably think of Kegel exercises as a chick-only thing. She squeezes her pelvic floor muscles to prep her for childbirth or make sex more intense. But it turns out, they're not just for women. 
    Velv’Or - Some years later now and still many men are not aware of these muscles they own.

    A new review in the journal Urology found that strengthening a man's pelvic floor—the muscles that surround the base of your penis and form a shelf across the bottom of your pelvis—can help diminish erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. How so? When you get hard, your pelvic muscles keeps blood in your shaft. This helps to enhance and maintain your rigidity, says urological surgeon Andrew Siegel, M.D., the study's author and creator of pelvic floor exercise DVD Private Gym. And for premature ejaculators, squeezing those muscles can delay your orgasm. The stronger these muscles, the better the effect, Dr. Siegel says.
    Velv’Or - As you know we fully agree with Dr. Andrew Siegel and recommend all men to train their pelvic floor muscles on a daily basis. Strengthening these muscles will for sure help you with your erection dysfunctions while you can squeeze/push blood into the blood chambers of your penis while performing Kegel exercises. For delaying your orgasms if premature ejaculations emerge during sex we need to say that you can delay your orgasms by squeezing your pelvic floor muscles but this takes many days of intense practice.

    It might sound too good to be true, but science backs him up. A 2005 study from the United Kingdom found that 75 percent of men improved erectile function after doing Kegels. In another study, Italian researchers found that 61 percent of men were cured of premature ejaculation through rehabilitation of the pelvic floor muscles.
    Velv’Or - The results show how effective the exercises are when performed correctly and for repeatedly.

    However, there are many different causes of erectile and ejaculatory problems, so Kegels may not solve all your sexual woes, says Christopher Kelly, MD, assistant professor of urology at NYU Langone Medical Center. But they're free, easy to do, and worth giving a shot before you turn to medication. 
    Velv’Or - Correct they can be performed while sitting, standing, walking or simply by lying down. If you take a sauna after your gym session why not finish your workout off with a Pelvic Floor Muscle exercise??

    Ready to try it for yourself? Here's how to do it: Squeeze the muscles that you would use to stop the stream of urine and hold the contraction for 1 to 2 seconds (concentrate on only using your pelvic muscles, and not your glutes, thigh, or hip muscles). Release. Repeat 30 times, resting one minute when you're finished. Perform 3 sets, 3 to 4 times a week.

    Does Your Penis Size Matter? A video with Dr. Debby Herbenick

    Original post can be found at http://www.menshealth.com/sex-women/workout-for-your-penis

  • Around the northern hemisphere, the sap has been rising, plants are green again, and spring is well and truly here. 

    Spring is traditionally a time to celebrate fertility and fecundity, and different cultures have their own ways of doing this. 

    The Japanese have matsuri (festivals) to celebrate their hopes for an abundant harvests and good fortune for future generations. The best known is the centuries old Hōnen Matsuri (Prosperous Year Festival) in Komaki, Aichi Prefecture, where each year a newly carved 600 pound 2.5m long Cyprus wood penis is paraded through the streets as part of the festivities. (One wonders what happens to the previous years’ penises.) Surprisingly, it is not the human penis that is being venerated, but the fertility of the earth under the participants’ feet.

    The Hōnen Matsuri should not be confused with the Kanamara Matsuri (Festival of the Steel Phallus), where residents of Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan also parade penises through their streets. This festival has less to do with soil fertility than with commercialism. It dates back only to the 1960s, though the local Shinto shrine has been visited since the 1600s as a place to pray for protection against sexually transmitted diseases.

    In many European countries, communities often celebrate spring by holding festivals at the end of April (Walpurgis Night and Baltane) and on the first day of May (May Day). Traditionally, May Day celebrations include dancing, especially dancing around a maypole. Such dances, which involve the dancers weaving a colourful cover to the maypole with ribbons tied to the top of the pole, are termed dressing the maypole. There are many ways of dressing a maypole depending upon the steps and turns of the dancers.

    Some people have seen maypoles as having phallic symbolism, though not all have. English author John Cleveland is one who certainly did. He wrote in 1748 in Fanny Hill: Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure:

    “... and now, disengag'd from the shirt, I saw, with wonder and surprise, what? not the play-thing of a boy, not the weapon of a man, but a maypole of so enormous a standard, that had proportions been observ'd, it must have belong'd to a young giant.”
