Most men know that good looks and excellent hygiene habits can make them more attractive to their sexual partners. But sometimes it takes more than that to please your mate in bed. Studies have shown that certain physical traits may be linked to sexual performance. Here’s a list of the top 10 critical components.
In this case, bigger isn’t better. Men with extra belly fat tend to have low testosterone levels. Hormone imbalances due to obesity can lead to erectile dysfunction and lack of sex drive.
Some men are afflicted by a condition called Dupytren’s contracture, a systemic metabolic disorder of the connective tissue that makes it difficult to stretch the tendons in the hands and body. Men with this disorder may also have a curved penis, which can affect sexual performance.
You’ve probably heard about the association between penis size and shoe size. Could the length of your penis be linked to the length of other appendages? The answer seems to be yes. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men with longer arms tend to have longer erections.
Belly fat shape
Does your belly fat hang low? It could have an impact on your penis. Low hanging belly fat can obscure your penis and make it difficult to have sex. Men with low-hanging belly fat also typically have low testosterone levels and poor sex drive.
There may be a correlation between the relative length of your index and ring fingers and your testosterone level. If your index finger is longer than your ring finger, you may have low testosterone. If the opposite is true, you probably have higher testosterone and an amped up sex drive.
The tubercle is the somewhat plump protrusion located at the bottom of your upper lip. A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that women with a prominent tubercle are more likely to experience orgasms. This correlation may also exist in men.
Men with excess fat in the chest area may have low testosterone levels. That’s because excess fat converts testosterone to estrogen. If you have this condition, it may be difficult for you to get and maintain an erection.
Snoring is associated with obesity and low testosterone. It may also indicate that you have a disorder such as sleep apnea. Sleep depravation and low testosterone levels can deprive you of the energy and drive you need to have sex.
Feeling down? It could have a negative affect on your sex life. Mental disorders such as depression make it difficult for men to focus on having sex. In fact, depression can lead to a condition called anhedonia that makes it difficult or impossible to feel pleasure.
How you walk may be linked to how you perform in bed. If your pelvis lacks mobility, it may be more difficult for you to achieve orgasm. An inflexible spine can also indicate that you have a nerve impingement that could affect your ability to get an erection.
