2) Watch what you eat.

2) Watch what you eat.

According to WedMD , research has shown that foods bad for the heart are also bad for the penis—which makes sense, since the heart and penis both depend on blood flow to function properly.

The Mediterranean diet—which includes, fruits, whole grains, heart-healthy fats like nuts and olive oil, red wine, and vegetables—is a good place to start.

"The link between the Mediterranean diet and improved sexual function has been scientifically established," Irwin Goldstein, MD, director of sexual medicine at Alvarado Hospital in San Diego, told WedMD.

10) Take it easy when you‘re thrusting.

One vigorously misplaced thrust is all it takes to rupture the corposa cavernosa, the elongated “erectile chambers” that run the length of your penis.

Don’t believe us? Try aiming your erect penis at the trunk of a tree—it’s roughly the same density as your partner’s pubic bone.

12) Yawn a lot.

Sorry if that photo made you yawn just now. Actually, we're not sorry—because as far as your body’s concerned, yawning and getting an erection are practically the same thing.

9) Get your testosterone levels checked.

Low testosterone doesn't directly affect the mechanisms involved in your erection, but it does affect your libido, making it harder to get turned on—and harder to get, well, hard . If you notice an uncharacteristic drop in your sex drive—or any of these symptoms of low testosterone—you m...

Those erections are not there just to make life interesting for your bedmate. They w...

14 Tips to getting hard erection and staying longer
