• What does your handshake say about your erection

    A handshake can be interpreted in several ways: by the strength of the grip; by the vigorousness of the shake; by the use of one or two hands by the shaker; … And the firmness of the handgrip can be taken to mean more than an assertion of power or a sign of dominance and control.

    Of course, whether a man gives a full-on strong handshake or just presents you with the equivalent of a dead wet fish is very much down to him. But if he is trying to give you his best grip and it is still weak then it could be an indication that he has, or is very likely to develop, health problems. 

    A research team from Chonnam National University in South Korea reported* at the end of 2017 that ageing men with weaker handgrip strength have a higher risk of moderate to severe erectile dysfunction, They also found that a high level of moderate to vigorous physical activity is associated with a lower risk.

    We are not saying that you should all start to strengthen your handgrip to ward off the possibility of not being able to get or maintain an erection as you age. It is unlikely that a weakening handgrip is the cause of weaker erections. There is little you can do about getting older, however there is much that can be done to ward off the effects of ageing. 

    We suggest you keep your physical and sexual activity levels up; you keep your mental health in a good place; you keep your diet a healthy diet, neither under eating nor over eating; you avoid intoxicants, if possible; you maintain a good network of social contacts; and you ensure you get enough sleep.

    And should you find yourself shaking hands with a male colleague or friend and it seems to you that their handgrip is not what it could be, just tell them about the benefits of keeping active. If they say they can't fit in exercising into their lives then tell them of the sustaining effects of cockrings and how you’ve found using a Velv’Or cockring to be life enhancing. Spread the word!
