A vast majority of adult men experience problems with their erections. The older you get, the higher the risk of having trouble achieving or retaining an erection. According to some estimates, 52% of adult men face erection-related problems. At the age of 40, about 40% American men report erection difficulties, but it is estimated the rate could be higher because a vast majority of the male population doesn’t like to discuss this subject with anyone including doctors. Do you find it difficult to achieve an erection? Or maybe your penis gets hard, but it’s not as strong as it used to be? This isn’t the end of your sex life! There are many things you can do overcome this obstacle and yoga is one of them.
Yoga and erection: seriously?
Yoga has been around for centuries, but men usually consider it as a workout for women.

In fact, yoga benefits your overall health, including sexual functionality.

Findings, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, revealed that the completion of yoga sessions resulted in improved sexual functions. Men reported improvements in the intercourse satisfaction, desire, sexual performance, confidence, partner synchronization, orgasm, ejaculatory control, and erection.
