A shelf of flab suspended above your nether regions serves only two functions: 1. As somewhere to place your pint while ordering another and 2. As a prompt for someone to exclaim ‘fart and give us a clue’ when you drop your knickers and challenge them to pinpoint your Grand Canyon. Splurging on sugar can lead to decreased blood circulation in your body, with all paths leading back to your wanger. Rule number one: anything that is bad for your heart is also bad for your boner.
Everyone knows about Brewers’ droop. Too much booze may fuel your desire, but it can leave you lustful and limp when it comes to getting to full mast and staying there. A lifetime of heavy drinking damages your liver and your nerves which, in turn, affects sex hormone levels – leading to the dreaded erectile dysfunction.
Ensure that you use your bed for its primary function – sleeping, not just fucking. Too many sleepless nights slash your testosterone levels. Watch out for stress too, as this bolsters levels of the hormone adrenaline, thereby contracting blood vessels.

This one surely shouldn’t be too hard for body-obsessed gays – regular exercise! Aerobic exercises such as running and swimming are the deadly enemies of erectile dysfunction. But a word of warning: avoid too much activity that puts excessive pressure on the perineum (that vital area between your balls and your bucket) – and yes, this could well include those dodgy sexual positions. Oh, and too much cycling has also been adversely linked to one’s ability to sustain a rigid crossbar.
Work it, girl!
That Muscle Mary down the gym who won’t give you the time of day, well, guess what – she’s got less than a tantalising tool and more twitching toothpick down below. Anabolic steroids shrivel your scrote and sap its ability to create testosterone. Oh, and steroids can make you bald and very moody – AVOID!
