As another year ends, a new one begins. For many people, this provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on the year gone by, and make some decisions about what they will change for the year ahead. Is 2022 going to be your year?
If you’re dissatisfied with your sex life, your ability to get an erection, or even the size of your penis - now is the time to take control and make a change! Nobody is going to fix these problems for you - you need to be the person that puts in the effort.
So, what can you do in 2022 to improve your sex life and your sexual health?
Here are nine great new years resolutions to boost your sex life in 2022.
1. Cut Back on the Sugar
Recently, we talked to you about the effect that sugar may be having on your sex life. Not only can excessive sugar consumption lead to the development of type 2 diabetes, but it can also lead to erectile dysfunction.
Sugar only provides a short term energy boost. Once the sugar high has passed, it leaves you feeling sluggish and lethargic - lacking the energy to have sex.
Your libido is integral to your ability to have sex. Too much sugar can leave you resistant to leptin - which has a knock-on effect on your desire for sex. It can also increase your cortisol levels, leaving you stressed out while pulling blood away from your vital organ.
We all like a sweet treat every now and again, but before you devour that entire box of donuts, ask yourself whether you’re doing your sexual health a disservice.
Why not make 2022 the year you cut back on sugar? Not only will you feel fitter and healthier for it, but you’ll have better erections and an improved sex drive.
2. Ditch the Dad Bod
Did someone once tell you that dad bods were sexy? Maybe you heard this myth and decided it was okay to pile on the extra pounds and shirk exercise! While conforming to near-impossible physical health standards may be a challenge to most - letting go and developing dad bods can lead to a whole raft of health problems - one of which is erectile dysfunction.
If you look down at your penis and all you see is your gut hanging over your waist, now is the time to do something about it.
Now, we’re not suggesting you need to be in the gym every day sculpting a bodybuilder’s physique, but you should at least look after yourself.
Having a dad bod is a sure sign that you neglect yourself and that you just don’t care about your health. Potential partners pick up on these things, and it’s hardly a turn on.
If you want to turn your luck around in 2022, ditch the dad bod and earn some new self-respect - your sex life will thank you for it!
3. Open Up About Your Erectile Dysfunction
Erectile dysfunction can cause a lot of doubt and shame. Maybe the first couple of times it happened you managed to brush it off - but as it becomes a problem that you really start to take notice of, it can make you want to avoid sex altogether.
It can be hard to talk to your partner about what you’re going through. Nobody likes to admit that they’ve got ED - but it happens to more guys than you might expect. You’re not alone - and it isn’t your fault.
Talk it through with your partner. Don’t leave them feeling as though you don’t want them sexually, as avoiding sex and not talking about the reasons behind your problem will only lead to resentment and arguments.

4. Engage In Intimacy More Often
Make 2022 the year you have more sex! Sex is great for your physical and mental health, and it boosts the production of feel-good hormones such as oxytocin.
Let’s face it, 2021 hasn’t been the best of years - living through a pandemic has put additional stress on many relationships, and for those who aren’t dating - it’s made meeting new people that little bit harder. In 2022, why not strive to be physically intimate more often?

5. Cut Back on Cholesterol
If you’re a younger guy, you may think that you don’t need to worry about your heart health just yet. After all, heart problems are not something that affects younger guys?
If you’re struggling with erectile dysfunction and you’re still young, high cholesterol may be a cause.
This year, get healthy by cutting back on fatty meats and dairy produce. Instead, maximize your intake of vegetables and whole grains - and get more active. You’ll enjoy better erections and an improvement in your sexual health.
It’s probably worth getting a ‘man up’ check-up to find out how your blood pressure is holding up. Having regular check-ups such as this will ensure you stay on top of your health.
6. Stop Vaping
Okay, so you quit smoking. That’s a massive achievement. But instead of smoking, you now vape! Contrary to what you may think, vaping is not good for your body. Having to deal with restrictive nicotine in your system can actually lead to ED.
This year, make it your mission to quit vaping for good.
7. Bring Your Bathmate To College
If you’re taking your Bathmate to college with you - read our guide for some great tips.
Improving yourself doesn’t just have to be physical. Enrolling in a college course can help you gain new skills, improve your self-confidence, boost your career prospects, and make you more attractive to potential partners.
Going to college is also a great way to meet new people and explore more sexually.
Make 2022 the year that you challenge yourself in every aspect of your life. Big dick energy isn’t just about your sexual prowess, it’s also about your emotional intelligence.
8. Drink More Water
Did you know that there is a link between dehydration and erectile dysfunction? Back in March, we discussed this link and talked about why it’s important to drink plenty of water.
It’s all to do with the way that water helps the delivery of oxygen to your penis. If you’ve not already made a concerted effort to make drinking water a habit - do so this year.
9. Loosen the Death Grip
We’re not going to tell you to stop masturbating entirely, but if you’re going at it like a jackhammer day and night, you’re not going to want sex, and you could end up with a nasty case of ED.
Cutting back on the amount you masturbate, loosening up, and dialing back the intensity of your wanking sessions will ensure you’re not developing death grip syndrome (DGS).
Another related problem may be porn-induced erectile dysfunction (PIED) - too much exposure to porn can leave you lacking in the bedroom.
If you’re already noticing the effects of DGS or even PIED, you may want to quit fapping and porn altogether and January is a great time to make a fresh start of it.
