A new clinic in Wisconsin gets men to exercise their penises in order to alleviate erectile dysfunction (ED), The Wisconsin Gazette reported October 8th. The article, “Wisconsin clinic offers new hope for men suffering from ED who can't take oral medications,” explained that at the NuMale clinic, doctors restore the penis to full functionality by giving men a chance to exercise it, administering vasodilator drugs which relax smooth tissue and cause arteries to open and allow blood to flow in. Dr. Chris Asandra, a practicing partner at NuMale Medical Centre, commented that men should exercise their penises three or four times a week – ‘the same as going to a gym.’ (

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored how performance anxiety can prevent men from using their penis. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Anxiety is our natural response to stressful situations, but when we’re faced with anxiety over what should be a pleasurable situation it can be less than desirable. Many people, both men and women, get nervous and anxious about their performance in the bedroom, but men in particular are known for having issues with sexual anxiety. The result is the inability to reach an erection or orgasm in a normal way. There are a number of myths which surround this problem, which has manifested a larger problem than the reality for most men.’ (

Yourwellness Magazine noted that arousal is closely linked to emotions and feelings, so when men try to ignore this and focus only on the physical act it can ruin what should be an incredibly enjoyable experience. Yourwellness Magazine also pointed out that physical ailments can affect ability in bed, but the root of this problem is often worry, caused by such factors as stress, body image woes or a fear that the man won’t be good enough to satisfy his partner.
