The sexual health of men is not a very common subject for usual conversations or discussion groups. When it comes to erectile dysfunction or diseases that affect penile anatomy and the quality of sex life, people usually get embarrassed or feel discomfort, usually they are not ready to talk about this kind of issue with their family and friends.
The traditional 'let's not talk about that' can make things even more difficult to men who need help and often keep it to themselves any kind of problem that affect their penis. Considering these problems, I felt it was necessary to create some material to talk about urological themes in an easy, informal and informative way, so that men could consult and open their minds regarding the diseases and the treatments that can affect the penis and the sexual life. This is how, in 2015, the book 'How to take care of your best friend (which is not your dog)' came up.
The purpose of this material is to provide clear information on a subject that is kept surrounded by misinformation and innumerable myths. The purpose to write the book was to help and remind men of visiting an urologist in a preventative way and not just to 'put out fire' when problems have already escalated. We know that many of these problems can be avoided with simple preventive methods, which would make it relatively simple if shame and prejudice are set aside.
With a very explanatory content, the book addresses all phases of male sexual formation and seeks to provide knowledge to men, so they can observe those aspects in themselves and seek specialized care. But then I felt that this content should be shared with more people, and that's when the blog with the same name came up.
By providing a discussion about these delicate matters on the internet, men of all ages can access a guide with technical information about their sex life, empowering them about the problems that may occur and about the processes of treatment.
With the necessary information, shame gives way to the awareness that treating is more advantageous than hiding the problems. After all, maintaining an active sex life is important for the physical and psychological health of men and that concerns those who are beginning their sex life, but also those in an older age, so it is not necessary to leave their sexuality aside just because of a problem that can, Yes, be solved.
In this context of seeking for a treatment, the sexual partner is very welcome. With care and companionship everything becomes easier.
In the blog “How to take care of your best friend (which is not your dog)”, you can find a reliable source of articles on man’s health in addition to medical advice on male well-being.
