Losing penis sensitivity is a fear of every man, and unfortunately, science has shown that penis sensitivity does often go on a downhill slide as a man ages. The use of a top-quality penis health crème and excellent daily penis care can help a man maintain sensitivity for as long as possible. However, there are some men who might deal with a decrease in sensitivity quite early in life; this is known as Reduced Penis Sensation, or RPS.
What is RPS?
RPS is exactly what it sounds like – the sensations a man feels in his penis are reduced. For some it might be a particular spot on the penis that isn’t as sensitive as it once was. For others, it might be the entire manhood that gradually suffers from decreased sensation and tactile pleasure.
Though a man can still get excited and have erections as normal, his ability to enjoy the sexual act becomes more and more distant. In fact, RPS is usually diagnosed in a man who has a normal sex drive and no problem with arousal, but who cannot enjoy the physical stimulation to the penis that would lead to orgasm.
RPS can lead to other problems as well, such as low self-esteem and a lack of confidence. The problems it might lead to in the bedroom can also cause relationship issues, especially if the cause of the RPS is not identified and thus understood by both partners.
What causes RPS?
Doctors have a wide variety of theories on what might cause Reduced Penis Sensation. In some cases, the reason is obvious, such as a man who has suffered penis trauma at some point and thus has lingering nerve damage. But in most cases, RPS is a mystery.
Doctors do agree that it must be caused by nerve damage or circulatory issues. That leads to a wide range of potential issues, including cardiovascular problems, diabetes, obesity, or even a job that requires prolonged sitting, which can lead to problems with circulation to the midsection. Nerve damage from a botched circumcision, prostate surgery or spinal injuries might also lead to a loss of sensation.
Rough handling or friction to the penis for an extended period of time might lead to a buildup of thicker skin in certain areas, which could explain the ‘spotty’ type of RPS that some men suffer.
How to alleviate RPS
In some cases, RPS has a medical condition as its source. For instance, men who suffer from diabetes can improve their penis sensitivity over time by keeping their blood sugar levels under tight control, or men who suffer from cardiovascular issues can speak to their doctor about medications and lifestyle changes that will result in an uptick in their overall health.
Men can also look to lifestyle changes that might help increase penis sensation. For example, a man who masturbates with a ‘death grip’ might change his routine so that he doesn’t apply so much friction to the penis. Sometimes overall lifestyle changes, including quitting smoking or losing weight, can be the magic cure for RPS.
No matter what the cause of RPS, the use of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin), applied every single day, can work wonders to increase the sensitivity of the penis. The smart man will look to a crème that contains acetyl-L-carnitine, which protects against peripheral nerve damage, as well as vitamin A, which has plenty of anti-aging properties. Remember to include vitamin D as well, as it is great for supporting healthy cellular function. All those vitamins and nutrients combined in a base of Shea butter and vitamin E can help hydrate the skin and help restore sensitivity.
