Many men are avid fans of nude sunbathing, taking pains to ensure proper penis health by keeping the organ covered in a good, effective sunscreen. The pleasures of nude sunbathing are many, and as long as appropriate penis care is practiced, it can add an extra element of fun and freedom to one’s beach or backyard experience. And interestingly, there may be a testosterone benefit associated with tanning in the nude as well.
Testosterone, of course, is the male sex hormone and something about which men often have concerns. While few men ever actually know what their exact testosterone levels are, most men want to make sure that they are on the high side.
That’s understandable. In popular culture, high testosterone levels are associated with true manliness: a hairy chest, bulging muscles, a sperm-filled sack and a massive penis always standing erect and ready for action. While the truth is that there is not quite such a direct link between the hormone and these attributes, testosterone nevertheless plays an important role in both physical development and sexual issues, including the sex drive.
Sunlight is of great importance to the continued health of any individual, male or female. In men, sunlight can play a role in increasing the amount of testosterone produced by the body. This is one of the reasons that ancient Greeks used to exercise outdoors in the sun. While an indoor gymnasium has its advantages, the lack of sunlight is a definite detriment.
When bare skin is exposed to sunlight, there is a definite increase in testosterone production. One study found that exposure to sunlight on the back increased testosterone production by about 120%.
Even more impressive, exposure of the genitals to sunlight increased testosterone by 200%. (That might be one reason so many erections pop up on a nude beach – that and the presence of shapely nude women, of course.)
Add in some exercise
If a guy really wants to get the testosterone levels climbing, he should consider combining exercise with his nude sunbathing. Vigorous exercise also stimulates the process by which testosterone is produced, so engaging in a naked workout outdoors should have even more of a benefit.
One can bring weights to the beach if one wants, but it may be easier to just engage in more sports-like activities. A game of nude volleyball or bare basketball can get the job done and be much more enjoyable. (But do remember, men: you’re playing without an athletic supporter, so be careful.)
Another activity that can be entertaining is nude yoga. This has become more and more common in recent years. It’s worth investigating if any practitioners are in one’s area and if there is a clothing-optional outdoor space where a class could be held.
Remember, the direct exposure of the penis to sunlight results in the testosterone boost. This means that a man needs to go the full Monty to derive the maximum benefit. This also means that a man needs …Read More
