Smoking can have a plethora of negative effects on men, including penis shrinkage and even erectile dysfunction, according to specialists.
That cig you thought would make you look totally cool (when you were a teenager) could actually be the cause your penis has withered. Marc Laniado, a Harley Street urologist, disclosed it is not as rare as you might guess. He claimed: “I see erectile dysfunction a great deal. To have a firm erection, you need sufficient blood flow. Smokers have a higher incidence of artherosclerosis in all blood vessels, including those in the penis, which can reduce blood flow. The chemicals in smoke may also have an effect on firmness; nicotine causes blood vessels to become narrow. This can be temporary or – eventually – permanent.”
He continued: “Often they will say, ‘My erection is not so good, I don’t wake up with an erection in the morning as much as I used to or my penis isn’t quite so hard when I’m having sexual relations.’ But also sometimes people say that their penis is getting shorter as they get older, as smoking stops the blood flowing through the penis, which stops the spontaneous and nightly erections that are needed to stretch the penis and keep it at a good length. So in summary smoking can make your penis appear shorter or in fact become shorter.” However the specialist said it’s not just men who could endure the effects of smoking on their chthonics, women could too be in trouble. He furthered: “Women’s arousal is – if you think about it – also affected by blood flow to the area.”
Researchers have before identified links between performance in the sack and cigarettes. Cigs have toxins which can damage the blood vessels in a man’s weasel, according to Medical News Today. During a 1998 study, Boston University of Medicine scientists examined the erect penises of 200 men and found that those men who were puffers were some way off from those who did not. The study too concluded that smoking impedes blood flow to your genitalia, stopping the phallus from stretching.
