It seems there is never enough time in the morning — no matter how early a guy gets up. Men are rushing to the shower, rushing through the morning routine, only to sit in rush hour traffic to get to work. Unfortunately, all this rushing can cause a man to rush through things important to his overall health. Skipping breakfast too often can lead to a poorly balanced diet, overeating at lunch and even issues with one’s metabolism. Rushing through or skipping teeth care, can lead to cavities. Rushing or skipping penis care can lead to a loss of sensation, dry cracked skin, and in some cases, even Peyronie’s disease. Learn more about the importance of taking a few moments out of the day to engage in penis care.
Why is penis care important?
Most men do not give caring for the penis a second thought. The equipment may get a quick shot of soap in the shower, and that is all the attention to penis care the little guy gets until it is time for a checkup from the doctor. Unfortunately, this lackadaisical approach to penis care can dramatically impact the health and wellness of the penis. Why? The answer is simple: the penis gets used, and used often.
Furthermore, though the penis is a very sensitive part of the male anatomy, it is not treated with gentleness 24/7. Rough sex, masturbation, sex pills and even the rubbing up against zippers and rough jeans while urinating, can all take a toll on the skin of the penis. This can lead to dry, itchy, irritated and even cracking skin in an area where itching is not always publicly acceptable. What man hasn’t done an awkward lunge or squat to try to sneakily scratch an irritated unit?
Dry skin is not the only problem of a neglected penis. The wear and tear of frequent use can actually damage the delicate tissue of the penis, burst blood vessels and lead to plaque buildup on the shaft of the penis. This condition, known as Peyronie’s disease, can cause a painful curvature of the penis, and in extreme cases, make sex difficult and unpleasant. The scar tissue that builds up as a result of Peyronie’s disease can also shorten the penis — and penis length is one thing no man wants to part with.
