Improve Sexual Recovery Time
(One of the most common questions I get asked)
How can I improve my recovery time?
I mean, it makes sense… After all, sex is pretty fun, and the less ‘down time’ the better. Fortunately, there are plenty of things that you can do to improve your recovery time and get you better erections. Read on to find out how to get your recovery time down to a few minutes instead of a few days.
Boost Testosterone to Improve Sexual Recovery Time
Boosting your testosterone NATURALLY is one of the best things you can do for your sex drive. First off, it means that the frequency and power of your erections will increase. The more prepared your body is to get it up in general; the easier you’re going to find it to get hard again after a vigorous bout of knocking boots. It’s essentially the ‘rising tides lifts all boats’ idea – more erections all the time mean more erections straight after as well. So why does this happen? The short answer is that we don’t know why testosterone improves your sex life. All we know is that there’s a correlation between high testosterone and good erections. There are a few potential reasons trying to explain this relationship:
- Women find men with higher T more attractive
- Men with low T have harder arteries (which means less erection action)
- Low testosterone is associated with insomnia
- Low T usually means higher estrogen
But at the end of the day, we just don’t know exactly why testosterone causes erections. My money says that it’s some combination of all of these things, and probably dozens of other factors we haven’t discovered yet.
We’re not really sure.
But for now, all you need to know is that there IS a correlation between low testosterone and poor erections (and infrequent). So to improve your recovery time, a good place to start is to boost your testosterone. What can you do to boost your testosterone? Given that your recovery time gets better when you up your T, you might be tempted to turn to some Schwarzenegger-esque remedies. Don’t. You might get a short-term boost but in the long term, you’re going to end up screwing up your hormonal balance. Instead, these are natural supplements and foods you can use to boost your testosterone:
- Mucuna Extract
- Tongkat Ali
- Shilajit Extract

Reduce Porn Consumption
Porn works pretty much like any addiction – we like it because it activates the dopamine centers in our brain, which makes them go haywire, which makes us feel good. The thing is, just like any drug, we naturally begin to develop a tolerance to dopamine; and it takes more and more to get the same effect. This has some pretty obvious implications for your erections, sex life, and recovery.
First, it means that it’s harder to get it up at all.
Dopamine plays a key role in the biochemical process that triggers an erection. If your body has been desensitized to dopamine due to too much porn; it’s going to take more and more to have the same effect. This is also why for a lot of guys, over time they find themselves watching more and more intense pornography to get them going at all – they’re insensitive to their own dopamine production. Second, your ability to PRODUCE dopamine is reduced as well, since the cells involved are, frankly, burned out after all your porn consumption. So to recap, watching porn too much will, over time, reduce your sensitivity to dopamine as well as your ability to produce it.
Fortunately, this is easy to reverse.
If you REDUCE your porn consumption, your dopamine levels will eventually go UP and your dopamine sensitivity will improve as well. Plus, (added bonus) higher dopamine is associated with lower prolactin, a hormone responsible for triggering milk production in women during pregnancy. All in all, less porn means more dopamine, more sensitive dopamine receptors, and less cock blocking hormones like prolactin – which makes for a shorter recovery time.
Lower Stress Levels
You’re probably not surprised to learn that stress is bad for you, and low stress is GOOD for you.
- First, the more relaxed you are, the easier it is to get in the mood in the first place. That much is intuitive.
- Second, stress has been linked as a direct cause of ED, and stress reduction has been shown to significantly improve your sex life.
- Third, and this is the most important reason for recovery, stress causes a reduction in testosterone.
Why? It’s all about hormonal balance. When we feel stressed, our bodies release stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. As these hormone levels increase, your testosterone levels go down. So if you can reduce your stress, you’ll find it easier to get in the mood and easier to stay focused on being in the moment. You’ll also find that your erections are more powerful when you’re relaxed because your stress hormones levels are down and thus, your testosterone levels are up.
Consume Nitrate-Rich Foods
Like most health problems, you can make big improvements to your recovery time just by tweaking your diet. And when it comes to your wood (or wood round two, as the case may be) nothing will give you a result like nitrate-rich foods.
Because nitrate is absolutely essential to the process of getting an erection. Nitric Oxide (NO) is the key ingredient for an erection because it’s the chemical tool your body uses to get blood flowing into your penis and the key tool your body uses to keep it there. Basically, no NO = no erection. And to boost your NO…you need to give your body the right stuff to work with. Which is nitrate. So by boosting your nitrate, you make it easier for your body to produce the NO needed to get hard.
My favorite nitrate-rich foods
There are lots of ways you can increase your nitrate levels with food, but here are my personal favorites:
- Arugula – highest nitrate concentration of any food. Plus, it tastes good and is incredibly versatile
- Beet juice – slightly lower, but easy to consume via smoothies
- Butter leaf lettuce and spring greens – mix these with arugula to whip up a side salad and get a huge boost of nitrate quickly and easily
Focus on Your Her While You Recover
After all, the life of your erection really starts in your head. So focus on your partner while you’re recovering, instead of the erection, and it will reappear much faster due to lack of pressure to perform. Staying in the moment is a great way to keep the good times rolling, and trust me, your girl will appreciate the extra attention…
Improving your sexual recovery time doesn’t have to be an arduous task. For the most part, it’s about tweaking what you put into your body to support your own natural erection rhythms and improve the length, virility, and frequency of your erections in general. Plus, doing things like improving your testosterone levels, reducing stress, and eating more nitrates all have positive spin-off effects on your life, so you’ll feel and look better than ever. The shorter recovery time is really just the icing on the cake.
