Melatonin and Muscle Mass – How Melatonin Can Make You Stronger

melatonin and muscle mass

While I don’t like to take melatonin on a regular basis (begins to make me feel groggy if I take it too many days in a row), I have begun to take a small dose of melatonin on days I’m particularly tired, or when I’ve hit a heavy workout. I do this to more fully recharge my batteries, but also to help me gain more muscle. Science has made some particularly interesting discoveries about melatonin and muscle mass that has led me to do this.

It’s during our sleep that our muscles really grow, thanks to the release of human growth hormone. So I believe the deeper sleep allowed with melatonin really boosts this function. But it appears, melatonin in itself has properties that aid in the recovery and growth of muscles after a workout.

Melatonin has been shown to do the following for muscles:

  • Induces an increase in skeletal muscle PGC-1alpha, a key regulator of energy metabolism, and optimizes glycogen replenishment (study).
  • Reduces muscle damage, oxidative stress and inflammation during short term intense exercises (study).
  • Reduces body fat and increases lean muscle (study).

So on nights where you really need some rest, or after a particularly heavy workout and you want to make some extra gains, consider taking some melatonin before bed. And make sure to take some extra protein right before bed for even more growth!

Why Do Some Women Like to Be Choked During Sex?

why women like being choked during sex

Ever wonder why some women like to be choked during sex?

I dated a woman a few years ago who liked to be choked, smacked, hair pulled, and called dirty names during sex. Now, I’ve had rough sex with women before, but this was really pushing my limits as to how I naturally interact with a woman during sex. But she liked it!

At first sex was great, but within the realm of normal activities… then one day, when she was feeling especially unfiltered, she asked me to choke her… took me a minute, but I obliged… just had to make sure she knew deep down that she was safe, and that she was getting enough air!

I’ll be honest, wasn’t a big fan of it, but she seemed to really get aroused from it. As to the hair pulling, I had done that before, and had no problem working that in… strange, but it was arousing feeling like I was pulling on a horse’s mane or something when it was up in a pony tail, and that I never had an issue with, especially when she was riding herself into an orgasm, head pulled back.

But it got me thinking… why do some women like being choked during sex, and otherwise mistreated? I did some research and got a better understanding of what’s behind it…

Why Do Women Like To Be Choked During Sex

So it turns out that this most likely goes back to some ingrained cave man days behavior. Women like to feel like they are being taken by force, or “ravished”. It opens up something in them that is primal and animalistic, and the act of being “taken by force” releases greater amounts of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is key to orgasm.

The idea here is that you’d be willing to do anything to have her, and as a result, women feel like they have an erotic power over you.

It’s good to know these insights…

There’s another physiological reason why women like to be choked during sex. When the rush of air comes in after being choked, it also releases greater amounts of dopamine, when combined with the cocktail of neurotransmitters going on during sex, heightens erotic excitement and chances of female orgasm.

Do Many Women Like Being Choked During Sex?

According to a Twitter poll of 1,447 women carried out by Women’s Health Magazine, being choked during sex is popular with many women, although the majority won’t be into it.

57% said they wouldn’t be into it, and never tried it. However 32% had tried it, with 23% liking it! Another 10% hadn’t tried it, but said they would.

So just ask her… does she want to try it? You might surprised by her answer.

Be Careful When Getting Rough During Sex, Especially With Choking

Things can go very wrong if you go overboard with the rough sex, especially if choking a woman. You want to ease into it, make sure there’s a safe signal (will be hard to get a safe word out), and that you pay close attention to how she’s reacting. Always go lighter than heavier… regardless of demands from the other party. Women have died from this.

There are lighter ways to “ravish” a woman and take her by force, such as those mentioned before (hair pulling, slapping), or rough kissing or licking her neck during sex, that provides some lighter reduction of air flow.

But if you’re going to try it, take it easy, and be careful!

A Lack of Sleep Can Lead to Premature Ejaculation

lack of sleep can lead to premature ejaculation

Throughout my whole life, for some reason, I’ve been obsessed with getting my 8 hours of sleep when possible. And little did I know it was with good reason because… a lack of sleep can lead to premature ejaculation.

In the study “Poor Sleep Quality is an Independent Risk Factor for Acquired Premature Ejaculation” published in Nature and Science of Sleep, researchers discovered how a lack of sleep not only leads to premature ejaculation, but several other negative effects we don’t want to experience as men.

In this case they studied men who acquired premature ejaculation later in age (APE), not men who had primary premature ejaculation, as primary premature ejaculation generally has a genetic cause, while acquired has comorbidities that can be observed (and altered).

First off, there were a few factors found more often in the PE group than in the control group, including:

(Note: As to older age correlating with premature ejaculation, this is not a given. From what I’ve seen, in my experience and in feedback I’ve heard from others, as long as you have some ejaculation control basics, you should be able to last longer the older you get… however, without the basic knowledge, appears age is not your friend when it comes to lasting power.)

From the study:

“A total of 349 men were enrolled in the study after completing the questionnaires and the medical history survey. Among 349 men, 203 individuals (58.17%) suffered from acquired PE. The IIEF-5 [erectile function] score, IPSS [prostate score], GAD-7 [anxiety] score, PHQ-9 [overall health] score, and PSQI [sleep quality] score of the population with PE were significantly different from the non-PE group. Further multivariate analysis showed that erectile dysfunction, depression, severe prostatitis-like symptoms, and poor sleep quality were high-risk factors of APE. Additionally, our study showed that premature ejaculation diagnostic tool (PEDT) score was associated with IPSS/GAD-7/PHQ-9/PSQI scores positively and associated with IIEF-5 scores negatively. The stratified analysis of sleep quality showed that APE patients with different sleep qualities have different prevalence rates of anxiety, depression, prostatitis-like symptoms, and erectile function.”

It was thought that one of the major reasons that a lack of sleep can lead to premature ejaculation is because “long-term sleep intervention may affect central ejaculation regulation”.

Besides being associated with premature ejaculation, a lack of sleep can get in the way of the restoration of our manly biological processes and lead to low testosterone, erectile dysfunction, and infertility…

So get your Z’s… and lose weight, and take care of your prostate, and get your mental health in order… making a conscious effort in these areas generally leads to a cycle positively influencing each aspect…

How to Sleep Better and Improve Your Sexual Stamina and Health

While getting sufficient sleep is nowhere near enough to help you last longer during sex on its own, it’s just one extra piece of the puzzle you can have in place to help tackle the problem.

Some things that will help you sleep better:

  • Cutting out electronics – bright screens – at least for some time before sleeping. Keeps the mind from being too active.
  • Not exercising too close to bedtime – keep the heart rate low
  • Cutting out caffeine later in the day – the effects are long-lasting and can keep your mind awake much longer than you’d believe
  • Meditation – helps to empty the mind, reduce the heavy thinking and clutter
  • Taking a warm shower – lowers your core temperature, a circadian sleep signal
  • Not taking a nap for too long or too late

Gaining mental control over your arousal and physically strengthening your PC muscles are much larger pieces of the puzzle, but if you’re struggling with PE, why not keep a closer eye on your sleep schedule?

Covid Can Cause Erectile Dysfunction

covid causes erectile dysfunction

Still reason to maintain some caution… covid can cause erectile dysfunction.

The Urologists United For Vaccination Education (UU4VE) are warning men everywhere – If you get infected with Covid-19 you are 6 times more likely to develop erectile dysfunction.

Apparently, Covid stays in the penis long after the virus has left the rest of your body (it’s been found up to 8 months later!). Covid causes erectile dysfunction by affecting the blood vessels in your penis similar to how it affects the blood vessels in your lungs, preventing them from providing enough blood for your erection to properly function.

Covid has caused ED so bad in some cases, that men had to undergo penis implant surgery, when previous to infection they didn’t suffer from ED at all.

Ranjith Ramasamy, Director of the Reproductive Urology Program at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Miami compared the damage caused to the penis from Covid to the organ damage that not only affects the lungs, but kidneys and brain.

And this might not be something temporary to be taken likely. Looks like it’s possible that Covid causes erectile dysfunction in the long run. “We think the penis also could be affected in a similar way. We don’t think this is a temporary effect. We think this could be permanent”, said Ramasamy.

Dr. Ramasamy and his team at the Miller School also previously discovered that Covid-19 can invade the tissues in your testicles, potentially having a negative effect on male fertility.

In the “Mask up to keep up” study published in the medical journal Andrology, a team from the University of Rome reviewed online surveys conducted by 100 sexually active men, including 25 who tested positive for Covid-19. The prevalence of ED was significantly higher (28%) among the 25 who had tested positive for Covid-19 compared to the 75 who had not (9.33%).

So don’t let your guard down completely just yet.
