Time is not a friend. The same applies to his penis.
As we all march forward into old age (yes, that’s ALL of us. Even you), you’re going to notice changes all over the place, including below your waistline. While you’re maybe worried about wrinkles appearing on your face and grey hairs on your head, spare a thought for your penis, your lifelong friend who is with you from day one to day done.
Because it is, obviously, like every other part of your body. your penis You will see the changes of time. However, if you’ve never considered them before, here we are listing the changes you can expect to see as you enter your autumn and winter years of life.
Change 1: Use less T in your testes
Your testicles start to produce less testosterone after the age of 40. They will actually produce less testosterone per year once you reach your thirties. Testosterone was what enabled your penis to grow to its full size and fuelled you sexual desire throughout your adulthood. Its decline can cause you to see Your penis shrinks in sizeThe change is small enough that you won’t notice.
What’s more likely to make your penis appear smaller however isn’t shrinkage, but rather optics: Compared to your gut, which will likely become softer and larger with age, your penis is going to appear smaller. What’s a better reason than to work out your abs?
Change 2: Going grey
The same way you might notice that you’re going a little silver around your temples, your pubic hair is going to start changing to reflect your age. That’s not to say it’s going to look like a powdered judge’s wig: It’ll happen slowly, if it happens at all.
As you age, the amount melanin in your body will start to decline. This means that your hair colour will become less vibrant or disappear altogether. That is where your greys are born. Your genes will determine when this happens in your 20s and 30s, 40s and 50s.
Change 3: Ball shrinkage
You will also notice a decrease in testosterone levels, which may cause your penis to shrink. Your testes can shrink for a variety of reasons. This could be due to past injuries, as well as a decrease in blood flow. HOWEVER, if you’re feeling any discomfort or Any abnormalities you may noticeTalk to your doctor immediately.
Change 4: Your bag sags
Like all things age-related gravity will take its toll. You might notice an increased chin wattle in your older years that extends beyond your shirt collar. Your ball sack will also hang lower than in your youth. As your skin begins to lose its natural elasticity, it’s only natural for this to happen, but much like a plastic surgeon can tighten the skin on your face, a professional can also give your scrotum a nip and tuck in order to scale back your sack.
Change 5: It just doesn’t work like it used to
This one you knew was coming. Strong erections will become harder to find as you age. Because of the lower testosterone levels in your body and diminished blood flow, old age can make it harder to get strong erections. It becomes more difficult to get a tough, firm work-in as you age.
You may also notice that your orgasm will take longer than usual because your penis is less sensitive. This is why it is important to stop stimulating more vigorously. Your shaft skin is already thinned, and it will continue to become thinner and less elastic as you get older.
There are some good news for guys: So many resources There are many medical advances that can help us transition into autumn with our penises intact.
