- Videos appear on the Internet advising men with erectile dysfunction to put toothpaste on their penis
- In addition to being ineffective, it can cause irritation and burns.
When it comes to sexuality, not all advice is good to take. Especially when they are picked up from the Internet and provided by people who are in no way experts.
After cleaning her vagina with baking soda or experimental penis enlargement methods, tutorials that need to be more effective in bed are now in vogue. On YouTube, videos aimed at men with erectile problems have flourished in recent months. They are advised to coat the penis with toothpaste to last longer before ejaculation.
“It will prevent premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction without dangerous drugs – and you will last 30 minutes longer”, so confirmed on his Youtube channel Jose Barber in a video since it was deleted, but which has been viewed more than 1.1 million times.
Risk of burns or blisters
However, in addition to being ineffective, this method can also be dangerous to doctors who warn because it can cause irritation or even burns due to friction during intercourse. “Peppermint oils and other chemicals in toothpaste, including bleaches, can be extremely irritating to sensitive skin. By putting it on the genitals, you actually risk slight burns as well as pain. Blisters and scars.”, warns pharmacist James O’Loan on the site Daily mail.
“Toothpaste is naturally abrasive, which can make sex uncomfortable.”, abounds with urologist Rich Viney, who recalls that toothpaste can too “cause infections in a woman’s vagina”.
More appropriate and safer treatments
“I would demand that someone who is considering trying this rather disturbing technique of ‘toothpaste’ give it up.”, advises James O’Loan, before he remembers having them “real drugs that work”.
Several options are available to patients suffering from erection problems. In addition to Cialis or Viagra medications, which increase blood flow to the penis and thus help achieve an erection, lifestyle changes, pelvic floor exercises or therapy may also be recommended. In any case, it is advisable to talk about it with your doctor to get the safest and most appropriate treatment, instead of testing the “grandmother’s medications” found on the Internet.
