they also use drugs (and injections EEK!) to increase the volume
Maybe shouldn't ask, but now I am morbidly curious.... what substances would increase the volume?
I don't know - I'm not involved in any current-day porn production (as I have said: in the late 1980's I was in a porn flick [or 2], and in the 2000's I was a part-time recruiter [talent scout] as well, but nothing but an illicit consumer these days)...
But I do know some current-day porn performers, and they tell me that some studios will LITERALLY inject something (I don't know what, and I cannot - for the LIFE of me - understand why anyone would submit to this) directly into your penis to give you a "better" erection (and, apparently, a move voluminous ejaculate)...
@vmalar I was skeptical of your question -- until I got the old search engine going, and found that "kegels for men" are indeed quite real, and useful for a variety of conditions or overall male wellness.
Kegel exercises work specific muscle groups in the pelvic floor area to help strengthen and tone this region. This helps incontinence and bowel control, but clearly there's an opportunity for new erotic horizons, as well:
When doing Kegel exercises, a man will feel his penis “jump” and slightly raise. It’s more visible with an erect penis than a flaccid penis, and you will see and/or feel a slight, upward movement. Gaining more control may also help a man to last longer in bed.
So, for anyone with an interest, take a look at the links below. The first three are for reading, and the last is (ahem) a short video clip:
I cannot imagine a more personal decision to have or make.
Some things to consider about circumcision:
It is primarily a cultural and/or religious decision (e.g.: it is a ritual part of the Jewish religion, very common in Islam, and previously was a highly-common cultural practice in America (US)... although the percentages in the US are down to about 50%, and continue to drop ca. 2021).
Because it is/was a US Cultural preference, there are all kinds of false reports of benefits to circumcision (increased sensitivity, health/safety benefits, claims that women prefer circumcised, even reports that children who were circumcised grew larger penises!) - the vast majority of these reports in favor of circumcision are false or misleading (for example: report of circumcised men having fewer health concerns than uncircumcised ones are usually based on conditions that are easily resolved by simply teaching young boys HOW to clean their penis - the same way young girls have to learn HOW to care for their vaginas to prevent health problems).
There are some (rare) medical conditions for which circumcision is the preferred treatment.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO consensus world-wide - even in medical communities - about whether there are medical benefits to being or not-being circumcised.
Long story short: if it was done to you as a child/baby, you don't have a say. Sorry, but blame your parents, or pediatrician, or religious leader...
If it was NOT done to you as a baby, you can choose to have this done to you... but really, why?
In case you're wondering, as a 50+ year old white US citizen, I was circumcised as a baby. I've never known anything different. But, I have known 2 men who have had the procedure done AS ADULTS, and both later regretted it. (Your mileage may vary, of course).
@clockedin Ah, another person who turned to dota 2. I remember dumping hundreds of hours on that when things were rough. Nothing like having complete strangers on the internet say the worst things over voice chat to make a bad mood worse.
Honestly, a nice, calming hobby goes a long way with keeping dark thoughts at bay. People crave a sense of purpose, visible progression, and entertainment to keep their mental state well. A good hobby will help with all of this.
Always talk to a doctor. It could be many things, even (depending where you live) the change of the season, the heat from the summer time… But it may be something more serious than simply feeling tired "because of the weather".
Making an appointment with a doctor would be the best thing to do to find out what's happening.
Considering the author does not say his age, this is likely an apt suggestion.
Thanks for the fast reply. I will keep doing the exercises, it's still better than doing nothing. I will definitely check out Reddit too. As far as diet is concerned, getting rid of sugar is the hardest part for me, especially when my mom keeps baking one delicious cake and cookie after the other. … I'm trying to restrain myself from eating them though, with more or less success.
The pleasure of eating a cookie only exists while you are actually eating it: looking at it, smelling it, touching it, putting it in your mouth, chewing it, tasting it, swallowing it. Five minutes later, you have only a memory of eating the cookie. The memory is pretty much the same whether you ate three small bites or three big cookies.
If you only ate three small bites, you don't have the remorse from eating three big cookies. So if you are very conscious about eating treats, savoring them in small quantities and then deliberately recalling the experience, you will learn to enjoy eating treats in moderation more than in excess.
It might also help to go on YouTube and watch some especially disgusting mukbang videos to see how gross overeating is.
