Zapping penis with ‘magic wand’ could beat erectile dysfunction in just 15 minutes 0 252

A “magic wand” is giving men their erections back with treatment sessions of just 15 minutes, experts say.

The device for erectile dysfunction (ED) gives out shockwaves that help blood flow to the penis, while also repairing damaged tissue.

It’s a relatively new way of tackling the common problem, adding to various pills, hacks and tech.

A clinic in Surrey, Men’s Health Clinic Kingston, is finding huge success with shockwave therapy, which usually requires around six sessions for six weeks.

Dr Peter Holy said: “Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can be done in just 15 minutes and without anaesthesia.

“It has proven to be an effective procedure for our patients who suffer from erectile dysfunction.

“But shockwave therapy has also got a huge range of other benefits too.

“Other conditions that can be treated by shockwave therapy are chronic pelvic pain conditions, chronic prostatitis and penile pain.”

Shockwave therapy is best for patients who have vascular ED, when blood flow to the penis is restricted.

This could be due to atherosclerosis – when the arteries become clogged or narrowed, often due to conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol and obesity.

After applying a numbing gel, sound waves of a high-frequency are applied to the penis through a wand which strengthens blood vessels.

The pulses stimulate the growth of new blood vessels while also breaking down plaque built-up in existing vessels. 

According to Men’s Health Clinic, 50 per cent of men with mild to severe ED could benefit from it.

It claims after six sessions, 50 to 80 per cent of patients will report an improvement in their erections.

One study suggested the effects last around a year, Healthline reports.

Dr Holy said: “Advances in tech in recent years means treating erectile dysfunction has never been easier or more effective.”

ED, also called impotence, is very common, the NHS says.

Its causes include depression, alcohol abuse or hormone problems, which are not known to benefit from shockwave therapy.

Treatments for ED sometimes target the root problem, such as therapy for a psychological cause or lifestyle changes.

ED is more often a problem in men over the age of 40, and is also a common side-effect of prostate cancer, with an estimated 47,500 British men diagnosed with the disease each year.

Dr Holy’s clinic works closely with leading prostate cancer facility Proton Therapy Center Prague in taking a holistic approach to treating the deadly disease.

“Thankfully, there are some incredibly effective treatments available today and the effects of prostate cancer can be treated better than ever before,” he said.

Supporting Ukraine Through Purchasing Power: The Initiatives Keeping the Country’s Economy Afloat 0 171

Amidst the Russian invasion, Ukrainian creatives are launching initiatives to keep the country’s economy going by harnessing consumer power. Spend With Ukraine is one such online resource that connects consumers to Ukraine-based businesses across various industries, while the Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund allows for donations to support artists. Co-founder of Spend With Ukraine, Andrey Klen, emphasizes the importance of supporting the Ukrainian economy through purchasing decisions. He states, “Armies win battles, but economies win wars.”

Ukrainian brands are still operating and many are donating a portion of their sales to different needs to support the country. To sustain interest in supporting Ukraine through spending, increasing the visibility of these initiatives is key. As Klen says, “We want it to blow out.” These efforts not only help Ukrainian creatives but also support existing industries and provide a sense of normality in these difficult times.

Ensuring Safety and Consent in the Adult Film Industry: A Vital Discussion 0 256

One topic that may be of interest to readers in the adult film industry is the topic of workplace safety and consent.

The adult film industry, like any other industry, has a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of its workers. This includes providing a safe working environment, protecting workers from physical and emotional harm, and ensuring that all acts are consensual. However, the nature of the adult film industry can make it difficult to ensure that these standards are met. Actors and actresses may feel pressure to perform acts that they are not comfortable with, and there have been instances of abuse and exploitation in the industry.

To address these issues, it is essential for the industry to have clear guidelines and policies in place to protect the rights and safety of workers. This includes providing education and resources for performers, implementing strict consent protocols, and holding producers and directors accountable for ensuring a safe working environment.

Another important aspect of this topic is the importance of consent in adult film. Consent is a crucial aspect of any sexual encounter and must be obtained freely, enthusiastically, and without coercion. In the adult film industry, where performers are engaging in sexual acts on camera, it is especially important that consent is explicitly obtained and respected. This can be achieved through the use of consent forms and communication between performers before and during filming.

By discussing these topics, the industry can work towards creating a safer and more respectful environment for all performers and ensure that the rights and well-being of workers are protected.
