Bathmate is recommending that motorcyclists, and no doubt many other sportsmen, should consider reaching for one of the company’s products after their exertions in order to protect their most prized possessions. John Oakes, who invented the Bathmate Hydropump, is a keen competitor in the ACU/Norasport Supermoto British Championship, and he recently explained why a hard ride on a motorcycle can result in soft issues elsewhere.
“There has been a lot of research done regarding the beneficial effects of exercise and how that can slow down the ageing process,” he said. “Exercise also makes you feel better due to the release of the body’s feel-good chemicals called endorphins. The better the blood flow to any organ, the healthier that organ will be – good blood flow really does equal good health. The blood contains all the micro nutrients to keep the body in a healthy position. When you exercise you raise your heart rate, which in turn pumps more blood round the body, delivering all the good stuff in the blood to the places where it’s needed.”
With regard to motorcycling, Oakes said: “When you are riding aggressively the cardiovascular system demands the blood from all the areas of the body where the blood is not currently needed – that’s bad news for the penis and leads directly to the term sports shrinkage, which is where the penis and scrotum contract to get out of the way to make exercise easier. The blood that’s normally contained in the penis can be put to better use in the cardiovascular system to power through the demands of the ride. There is also a secondary problem linked with racing ‘vibration’ – the vibrations that rise through the frame and tank can cause damage to the micro capillaries in the penis, leading to poorer erection quality. Just think about the guys you see at the side of the road using a jack hammer, they end up with a condition called ‘vibration white finger’, where all the capillaries have broken down and they no longer have the ability to hold blood. That’s definitely not something that you want to happen to your penis!”
He added: “Sports shrinkage has a negative effect as all the toxins contained in the groin are forced into a smaller area, concentrating the toxins. Every athlete knows the term sports shrinkage and we all accept that our healthy life style has this effect. What we hadn’t considered is that it may have a negative effect on our sexual health. These toxins, if left in place, eventually lead to a furring up of the blood vessels leading to the penis, and this will have a negative effect on an erection.”
Oakes recommends that to stay healthy, riders should reach for a Bathmate after a hard day’s racing. “The Bathmate will increase blood flow to the penis and flush all the toxins out of the groin area and fill the penis with nutrient rich blood, returning the penis to its normal healthy state.”
Drawing on his own experiences, he said: “I’ve been using, first the Hercules and then the Hydromax X40 since I started the company and I have to say I’m delighted with the results. Not only do I feel that I’m doing everything I can to stay healthy, I can also say that there has been a big improvement in both the length and girth of my most prized possession. In addition to the many health benefits, I personally find regularly using the Bathmate gives me far more confidence off the track, improving sexual drive and stamina between the bed sheets. So to stay fit and healthy, to look great, it has to be the Bathmate – I wouldn’t race without it!”
