Reproductive function and Male Organ Blood
Flow: Understanding the Anatomy of Tumescence
The human body is a wonder, a complicated organism that is a beautiful
machine. Individual body parts are also wonders, including the manhood –
and not just because of the sheer pleasure the manhood provides to its owner
(and to partners of the owner). Of course, like all parts of the body, it
requires proper care and attention, which is why male organ health is so
important. And part of understanding male organ health lies in knowing the
various components of the manhood and how they are affected by other
parts of the body. One prime example of this is how male organ blood flow
is affected by factors outside the manhood itself.
The process of achieving tumescence
If a guy were to look inside his manhood, he would see that there are two
“chambers” on either side of it, which start at the head and travel all the way
down the shaft and into the pelvis. These chambers are called the corpora
cavernosa, and each one of them is filled with spongy tissue.
Most of the time, the tissues in the corpora cavernosa have a small supply of
blood, provided by arteries and vessels in the manhood. This supplies
oxygen to the tissue, which keeps it healthy. During this time, the vessels
and arteries are only partially opened, because a greater flow of blood is not
However, when a man becomes stimulated, a signal is sent to open up the
arteries and vessels so that more blood can get in to the corpora cavernosa.
As this happens, the blood fills up the spongy tissue, which expands. As it
expands, it fills up more space in the manhood, causing the flexible
manhood to become hard. When it is stiff, the blood flow stops, and blood is
trapped in the manhood so that it remains this way. After completing the act
of intimacy, blood is allowed to leave the manhood, and it returns to its
normal state.
Flow is important
Clearly, male organ blood flow is important for a man’s performance. But
there are factors that have an impact on male organ blood flow which may
not seem obvious on the surface. These include things that cause plaque
build-up in the arteries. When there is too much plaque, the arteries cannot
expand the way that they need to. As a result, less blood gets through than is
When this happens in the manhood, the big rush of blood that is needed to
create a fully stiff manhood is impeded. This can result in tumescence that is
not as hard and firm as needed, or in some cases can prevent it from
occurring at all. Clearly, this is a situation most men would rather avoid.
Other things that can contribute to plaque build-up in the arteries (and
potentially impact male organ blood flow) include:
 Smoking.
 Drinking too much alcohol.
 Too much low density lipoprotein (LDL), which is commonly known
as “bad” cholesterol.
 High blood sugar.
 High blood pressure (or hypertension).
 Carrying too much weight.
 Not getting sufficient exercise.
As with so many things, it can take time to see the effects of these factors –
so taking steps to prevent them before they impede male organ blood flow is
strongly suggested. Consulting with a doctor to determine a plan of action
can be very helpful and produce good results.
It also pays to take steps to ensure the overall health of the manhood.
Regular application of a top notch male organ health crème (health
professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven
mild and safe for skin) can be a help here. When selecting a crème,
examine the ingredients and find one that includes L-arginine. This amino
acid helps produce nitric oxide, which in turn helps keep male organ blood
vessels open when increased blood flow is needed. It also is advised to select
a crème with vitamin A. This vitamin has anti-bacterial properties which can
help fight the bacteria that cause excessive manhood odor, a major problem
for some men.
