Erectile issues affect a lot of men beyond a certain age and with a hectic lifestyle, stress as well as factors like excessive porn consumption, they are becoming more of a threat to sex lives of young men as well. Apart from Viagra and implants, sound mental and physical health are said to be instrumental in preventing erectile dysfunction.

When it comes to holistic well being of the body and mind, there’s nothing better to ensure that than yoga. By relaxing the body and making the mind stress free, yoga has helped men with several issues like orgasm, ejaculatory control, erection and even synchronisation with their partner.

To do it right and get the best results, here are some of asanas which are ideal for improving sexual functionality for men and keep erectile issues at bay.

1. Naukasana

The boat pose is one that activates hormones in men and increases libido. It also strengthens thigh and hip muscles enabling men to last longer in bed. It’s very basic and involves lying on your back and inhaling while lifting the chest and feet while stretching arms towards the legs. This is followed by holding the position for seconds and exhaling as you get back in the original position.

2. Kumbhakasana

The plank pose is very effective when it comes to erectile dysfunction and it’s known to increase endurance during sexual intercourse. Apart from that upper body strength comes as another advantage. It involves being in a kneeling position with hands on thighs as they are slowly extended on the floor in front. Then the buttocks and knees are to be raised slowly with the head, back, trunks and legs forming a line.

3. Dhanurasana

The bow pose is ideal for stimulation of reproductive organs and in the process it tackles premature ejaculation and intensifies orgasms while being effective against erectile dysfunction. It’s done by lying on the stomach, raising legs and holding ankles which is followed by lifting the chest while breathing in. The legs are then pulled up and the position is to be held for 20 seconds.

4. Ardha ustrasana

This simple pose can help tone the entire body and solve digestion problems along with impacting urogenital system in men. One has to be in a kneeling position with knees apart. Then the left ankle is to be held by the right hand as the left hand is stretched across the head. This position is to be held for 30 secs and then has to be performed again after switching sides.

While pills and treatments promise a lot of benefits for a person’s sex life, yoga and other physical activities are bound to have a much more holistic approach to solving sexual issues and keeping them at bay.
