During the course of our life, many of us are looking for ways
to enhance our sexual performance. This can include tackling existing problems
or searching for new ways to keep our partner happy.

What's important to remember is that blood pressure plays an important role in our sexual function, so we need to make sure our circulatory system is in tip top shape.
What is good for our heart is good for our sexual health. Here is how we can improve our sexual performance:

We stay in shape
Cardiovascular exercise is one of the best ways to improve our health. By exercising regularly, we keep our heart in shape and therefore help our sexual performance. Running, swimming or other type of exercise for 30 minutes a day can boost our libido sky high.

We are what we eat
There are plenty of foods that can also help increase blood flow, such as:

  • Chilies and peppers. All-natural spicy foods help our blood flow by reducing hypertension and inflammation.
  • Bananas. This potassium-rich fruit can help lower our blood pressure, can benefit our important sexual parts and boost sexual performance.
  • Onions and garlic. Although these foods may give you bad breath, they can help our blood circulation.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids. These essential polyunsaturated fatty acids increase blood flow. We can easily find them in salmon, anchovies, tuna, avocados, olive oil and in the form of food supplements.
  • Vitamin B-1. This vitamin is crucial in swiftly passing signals in our nervous system, including signals from our brain to our penis. It's found in pork, peanuts, and kidney beans.
  • Eggs. High in other B vitamins, eggs help balance hormone levels. This can decrease stress that often inhibits an erection.

Take time to relax
Stress can affect all areas of our health, including our libido.
Stress interferes with our heart rate (in a bad way) and increases blood pressure. Both of these are damaging to sexual desire and performance.
Psychological stress can also affect achieving an erection or reaching an orgasm.
Exercise is a great way to reduce stress and improve our health.
Talking to our partner about our stress can also calm us down, while strengthening our relationship at the same time.
Stress can also trigger bad habits, such as smoking or alcohol consumption, which can harm our sexual performance.

No more bad habits
Smoking and alcohol consumption might make us feel relaxed, but on the other hand, could also affect sexual performance.
While studies suggest that a little red wine can improve circulation, too much alcohol can have adverse effects. Stimulants narrow blood vessels and have been linked to impotence.
Cutting down or quitting smoking is one of the first steps to improve performance and boost sexual health.

Let the sunshine in!
Melatonin is a hormone that helps us sleep but also reduces our sexual urges. Sunlight stops the body's production of melatonin. Less melatonin means the potential for more sexual desire.
We go outside and let the sun hit our skin. This can help wake up our sex drive, especially during the winter months when the body produces more melatonin.

Practice makes perfect
Practice, practice, practice!
Sex might be the best way to practice for sex, but masturbation can also help us improve our longevity.
However, how you masturbate could have detrimental effects. If you rush through it, you could inadvertently decrease the time you last with your partner. The secret is making it last, just like you want to, when you're not alone.

P for partner
Sex is a two-way street. We pay special attention to our partner's desires not only to make sex pleasurable for them, but to help turn us on or slow us down. Talking about this beforehand can help ease any awkwardness if we need to slow down during a heated moment.
Alternating pace or focusing on our partner while we take a break can make for a more enjoyable experience for both of us.

We are not alone
In case we experience erectile dysfunction (impotence) or other diagnosed disorders, we don't hesitate to talk to our doctor about how we can improve our sexual performance.
