Throughout history, men have had a reputation for being brave about everything except seeking medical advice. Men are notorious for avoiding doctor’s appointments and while this provides plenty of fertile material for jokes, it’s become no laughing matter for health care professionals or for men who have finally realized their health is worth their time.
A number of changes in how we see health and wellness have contributed to this change in approach for men. Perhaps the most significant contributing factor is the rise and popularity of male enhancement products and services. Clinics that offer help with premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction and sexual health have proven that men will seek out help when it’s available.
More to the point, the proliferation of male enhancement products that can be bought and used at home have given men everywhere inspiration to learn more about their overall health and how their choices and behaviours can affect not only their physical health, but also their sex life.
Male enhancement has always been focused on sexual health and happiness since, let’s face it, that’s the kind of enhancement most men are interested in. There’s nothing wrong with using sex to help people find their way to overall health and this approach has proven to be effective for men.
One of the best ways to show just how involved and interested men have become in health as a result of male enhancement is to look at the explosion of male enhancement reviews which have cropped up on a variety of websites. These reviews show not only that men are willing to be a part of product development, but that they are critical judges of what works, what doesn’t and how men can fashion their own plan for health.
More importantly, the influx of male enhancement reviews written by men who had never considered writing reviews shows just how powerful the draw of male enhancement and a better sex life can be. In many cases, these male enhancement reviews cover more than just the products they review, but also the problems many men face.
By inviting men to become involved in the process by writing male enhancement reviews, the industry has provided men with the foundation for support communities and access to more information both from the medical establishment and from lay writers. That has had the added effect of making men more likely not only to seek out answers and information about any issues they have, but to see that whatever they are dealing with – they’re not alone.
While the proliferation of products and services available to men is important, the fact that men have become so heavily involved in review writing, offering advice and the building of online communities proves that the old stereotype of men never asking for help is quickly becoming outdated. While men may still be slow to go to the doctor for some things, clearly, when issues begin to affect his sex life, any reservations are quickly thrown out the window. For the industry this means an active customer base but the benefits for men are far greater.
Improving your sex life is a huge motivator for both men and women but while women have always been seen as actively involved in their health, this perception is a new one for men. But through their involvement, perseverance and active participation, the male enhancement industry has grown by leaps and bounds, making it a fertile ground for research and development. In this way, men have shattered stereotypes and begun to build a new idea of how men act when it comes to health.
