This is a story of how the penis is connected to a man's heart. When his penis is ill, his heart will also be ill.
The Star reported a study by the National Population and Family Development Board (NPFDB) that sexual problems of men above 40 years old are signs that they can suffer from chronic diseases like heart-related problems or diabetes later.
The 2006 study by the NPFDB , in collaboration with the Malaysian Society of Andrology, revealed that almost 60% of men in the Klang Valley, between the ages of 40 and 70, suffered from erectile dysfunction (ED). And a high percentage of these men also suffered from major illnesses like high blood pressure and diabetes.
An associate professor from Universiti Sains Malaysia's Men’s Health Clinic confirmed that men with erectile dysfunction had a high possibility of developing chronic diseases such as diabetes or heart-related problems. He said that there were many cases of men with ED who died years later from diabetes or heart-related illnesses.
According to the spokesperson for the NPFDB, many men with sexual problems choose not to seek professional help to detect early symptoms of serious diseases.
This was the shocking revelation at Third Sexual Health Conference attended by medical professionals.
Despite what was mentioned at the conference, some Malaysian men will continue going for the batin massage, a traditional Malay genital massage, believed to assist in blood circulation to the penis to strengthen erections and improve sexual stamina.
