Testicle massage or scrotum massage! Have you ever heard of this? Most probably the answer is “NO”. You might even be a little suspicious about this, or may be you think I am just joking. But, what if I told you that a regular testicle massage could lead to increased sperm count, boost testesterone and improve your erections!
Men often forget their testicles to take care of. But, do you know that your testicles play an important role in sexual health. Testicles are vital organs and if you keep them in shape they will help you to give harder erections, higher amounts of semen and more sex drive.
Your testicles work to manufacture sperm and create 95 percent of your testosterone. Testosterone is a sex hormone which helps in the development of male reproductive tissues. For proper testicular functioning and testicular health, it is important to circulate proper blood flow to the penile and testicular area. And, the best way to activate better blood flow is through massage.
What are testicles?
The testicles, also known as the testes, are two small, egg-shaped glands that are located in the scrotum. The main role of the testicles is to produce sperm and testosterone. However, the testicles also play a role in sexual pleasure. For many men, the sensation of having their testicles massaged can be extremely pleasurable.
Men who are suffering from prostate cancer or other health issues involving the prostate should not receive scrotum massage. If you have any doubts about whether or not you should receive this type of massage, consult your doctor first.
