After a robust workout at the gym, nothing feels quite so good as spending a little time in a sauna or steam room. The concentrated heat pouring over the body seeps into the muscles and relaxes them after their exertions and helps a guy wind down. But is there any reason to wonder if using a sauna (or similar options, like a steam room) could have an impact on male organ health, and in particular, on member function? It’s a good question and one which those concerned about their member should consider.
There are two basic types of saunas: wet and dry. Wet saunas use steam to create their hot environment. Dry ones do not. Saunas often use very hot rocks as their heating source, with water added to them to create the steam. Wet saunas tend to be hotter than dry ones, but both create situations where a person produces sweat. This sweat helps to cool the body down while at the same time helping to release toxins.
Pros and Cons
There are many pros and cons associated with using a sauna. Some of the pros include:
�Reducing stress. Spending an appropriate amount of time in a sauna can help relax a body and reduce levels of stress. Stress, of course, is associated with many health problems and can be a contributing factor to member function issues.
�Increasing blood circulation. Blood vessels tend to relax through sauna exposure, and pulse rates go up. This allows the blood to circulate freely and rapidly throughout the body. (Healthy and unimpeded blood flow, of course, is also important for good member function.)
�Weight loss. While sitting in a sauna is not going to shed poundage in a significant way, long-term consistent use, especially in tandem with exercise and dietary changes, can contribute to losing a little bit of weight. And since obesity can be a detriment to member function, this doesn’t hurt.
�Healthy skin. By ridding the body of toxins, skin � including manhood skin � often benefits by being healthier and stronger.
But what about cons? Some negatives to consider include:
�Dry skin. If a guy spends too much time in the sauna, the healthy skin benefits dry up � literally, as the oils that are necessary for good skin maintenance get sucked out.
�Blood pressure may react negatively. People with hypertension need to be careful about how much time they spend in a sauna. The increase in circulation and pulse rate can also lead to an increase in blood pressure, if a guy with hypertensive tendencies doesn’t pace himself. And high blood pressure situations are a no-no for sustained member function.
�Male seed effect. Male seed do not appreciate excessive heat situations. Prolonged exposure to hot conditions is known to lower male seed count, so staying too long in the sauna may affect a guy’s little swimmers.
Ultimately, whether a sauna is good or bad for a man’s member function really depends on the individual; certainly men with cardiac or blood pressure issues should consult with a doctor before using a sauna. But in general, for a typically healthy man, most sauna use is fine so long as common sense is used. In other words, don’t spend too long a time in the sauna, be sure to stay hydrated, leave if feeling sick, etc.
