Brain Sensation: Part 4

BSMWe swallow a mouthful of food then, eventually, the entire meal is consumed. What follows is an incredibly complex chain of processes the brain and body must conduct to digest, assimilate and eliminate food.

To explain briefly, dozens of enzymes work tirelessly to break up the large chunks of swallowed food into microscopic bits, as large chunks simply cannot permeate the porous intestinal lining. Once they are broken down, or pulverized, these microscopic food particles can now pass through the intestinal lining and enter the bloodstream while, on the flip-side, an entirely different group of enzymes, with equal determination and faculty, re-assemble the microscopic food particles to construct brand new living tissue and repair old withered ones; i.e., muscle, bone, and organ included.

Eventually, food becomes us. We (really) are what we eat!

Brain Sensation: Part 3

BSMA man sees a woman he’s attracted to. Conversely, a woman sees a man she’s smitten with. Deep inside their brains their hypothalamus glands releases gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GNRH). This (procreative/sexual) hormone is immediately sent to their pituitary glands to release the gonadotrophins. The pituitary responds by sending the gonadotrophins to the gonads; testicles for the man and ovaries for the woman. This is the scientific way of explaining the ‘big head, little head’ connection which makes the sexual response mechanism possible; it’s another one of our procreative genes.

As a result of this hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal * responce, a man’s genital region experiences an influx of blood with a corresponding dilation of penile tissue to create an erection. Conversely, the female genital region also receives a surge in blood supply which triggers heightened sensitivity and enlargement of her clitoris, with corresponding secretions of vaginal fluids and dilation of the vaginal chamber in preparation for intercourse.

Needless to say, this is the beginning of new life; our procreative mechanism in its infancy. The brain really is the largest sex organ in the body.

* Often referred to as the acronyms HPGA or HPTA; ’T’ for testicular

Ten Tips for Boosting Testosterone & Having Better Sex


  1. Pump up: It’s a fact that men (and women) who regularly engage in weight training effectively boost their overall health, bone and muscle density, and testosterone levels. Resistance exercise, 3-5 times per week, for 30-45 minutes sessions, stimulates a man’s (natural, or endogenous) anabolic/androgenic metabolism, which is chiefly fueled by testosterone. Testosterone also plays an essential role in libido, spontaneous and quality erections, penile sensitivity and overall sexual performance. The more muscle a man has the more testosterone his body is likely to produce to nourish and maintain that muscle.
  2. Die it out: The #1 cause for erectile dysfunction and hormonal imbalances is smoking. Smoking destroys the integrity of the blood vessels that circulate fresh blood supplies into the organs of the body, including the penis. Without blood surging into the penis, a man will not become, or remain erect. Male smokers (falsely) believe prescription erection pills will assist them with their waning bedroom performances. But statistics indicate that as high as 60% of men who use prescription erection pills are either unable to obtain, or sustain their erections, or get very sick trying.
  3. Chow down: Protein contains nutritional constituents called amino acids. These are the microscopic power sources that are essential for building muscle, strengthening the cardiovascular and nervous systems, boosting immunity, and nourishing a man’s sexual-reproductive system, to name a few. Eggs, chicken, turkey, fish and lean red meats are excellent sources of protein to add to your meals. Combined with resistance exercise, the testosterone-boosting / sex-enhancing benefits from a diet rich in high-quality proteins are impressive.
  4. Calm down: The testicles produce most of a man’s testosterone, approximately 95%. What many do not know, or regard as significant, is that the adrenals produce the other 5%. In comparison to the number 95, the number ‘5’ may seem low, or insignificant, but for the man experiencing Low-T, hypogonadism or Andropause, that 5% is often that extra androgenic boost a man needs to A) spontaneously achieve an erection, B) sustain the erection long enough to please his partner, C) experience heightened sensitivity which results in great pleasure and a powerful orgasm, D) be ready to repeat the entire erection-to-orgasm cycle as quickly as possible and E) maintain a favorable muscle-to-ratio profile. The adrenals become hyper-active when consistently responding to stress. So, over time, the adrenals become exhausted and depleted, producing less and less androgenic testosterone. Millions of men suffering erectile dysfunction are merely deficient in adequate supplies of testosterone (i.e., andropause) due to the deleterious consequences of stress. These men have the ‘parts‘ to perform sex, they simply lack the ‘fuel‘. Learning to relax in stressful situations eases the activity of the adrenals that, in turn, helps to maintain a healthier testosterone level. Save your T for the bedroom and gym, and don’t waste it driving through rush-hour traffic.
  5. Trim the fat: It’s a statistical fact that obese men are more likely to achieve hormonal imbalances. When men accumulate excess fat they’re likely to concurrently produce less testosterone and more estrogen; an undesirable ratio. From bulging love-handles to protruding breast-like chests with female-looking nipples, to more flaccid penises, men become feminized simply by adding too much fat onto their body. One of my sayings is “Estrogen loves fat while testosterone loves muscle”. The more muscle a man has the more testosterone he’s likely to manufacturer.
  6. No rules: Many guys march into the bedroom with specific rules of engagement, previous ‘best’ performances to exceed, or the mere intention to prove they’re the best man their partner has ever had. Especially for the aging male, that mindset can instigate varying levels of performance anxiety forcing that man to tap-out long before he can ever make-out. Anxiety has been shown to be highly responsible for crippling sexual performances. Take it slow and easy. Calm down and scrap the rules book. And remember that many women love a man who ‘takes his time’. According to many sexperts, taking it slow enables a man to fully enjoy every second they’re lucky enough to be in a lovemaking experience.
  7. Check with your doctor: Medical advice is always suggested to any person who is experiencing hormonal and health challenges, and this includes men with sexual dysfunctions. But before you schedule an appointment make sure your doctor is, 1) educated in nutrition and 2) understands the complex science of male [hormonal] sexuality. If your doctor qualifies visit with him once or twice a year for regular check-ups and request a complete hormonal blood panel and prostate exam. As youngsters, men didn’t have to be concerned about their ‘little buddies’ but as men age predicable hormonal, genital and sexual challenges may ensue. Be a wise guy!
  8. Say ‘Goodbye’ to Five-Finger Mary: Excessive masturbation desensitizes a man’s penis, lowers his sperm count, and could strain the functionality of his prostate. Men who masturbate incessantly may also develop distorted sexual-psychological behavior patterns; Internet porn has exasperated this form of sexual addiction. It’s also known that many men are fully capable, and successful, of achieving an erection and an orgasm on their own but they become impotent when attempting to engage in sex with a partner. Many experts believe these performance-stopping reactions are created by  the thought-sensation response that has (again) become distorted, or perverted, while many of these men have conditioned themselves to believe it’s easier, faster, less embarrassing, and (oftentimes) safer to have sex with oneself than it is to have sex with another person. Refraining from or, at least, limiting, self-sex enables a man to fully enjoy himself when he has that special partner lying next to him!
  9. Bottom’s down: Excess alcohol consumption, and all prescription drugs, cause side effects. The statistics are staggering of men who are becoming impotent and/or experiencing severe hormonal deficiencies as a result of intoxicating themselves. The body, and its organs, simply cannot manage the abuse and, over time, they will break down. The first organ to often shutdown is the penis, and no matter how much stimulation or how potent the prescription erection pills are these men struggle to get it up, or keep it up.
  10. Nutritional Supplementation: It’s nearly impossible to obtain all of the nutrition an active man needs merely from food alone. Men, with all their muscles and active lifestyles, combined with the fact that they want to remain sexually active, must nourish their sexual-reproductive (androgenic) systems which includes many glands like the pituitary, hypothalamus, adrenals, testicles, and prostate. High-quality protein foods, fresh fruits and vegetables and natural sources of starchy (complex) carbohydrates are the winning combination!

Good Luck!

Testosterone Replacement Therapy: Is it all that’s it’s hyped up to be?

BookWhile testosterone can be taken by injection, by implant or transdermally (topical to skin, usually in the armpit), why do the purported benefits range so greatly for men using it?  Because, it really does!

Through their physician, some men (roughly between 40 and 75) choose HRT or TRT to primarily increase libido or sex drive, but also to look and perform better, with more energy and overall vitality. However, both anecdote and science data suggests that for a fair percentage of T users, there’s less than a sterling response. Once more, the longer a man relies on exogenous testosterone replacement the less effective this hormone seems to benefit him (especially sexually). There also becomes (more or less), a lifelong dependence on the exogenous testosterone therapy.

Man is a Sensory Creature!

What man ‘senses’ often stimulates psycho-biological reactions that prepare the body to ‘manage’ that which is being sensed. By this I mean, when a man’s brain ‘senses’ it’s hot his body shifts fluids from organs, muscle and blood to the surface of the skin to cool himself off (i.e., perspiration). When the temperature drops, and that same man senses it’s cold, his muscles shiver to elevate body temperature from friction. Another example is a man who’s asleep under the rays (sunbathing in his back yard), jumps completely off his lawn chair when he ‘hears’ a firecracker, loud noise or car backfire. His brain immediately ‘senses’ danger. Essentially, his hypothalamus gland releases a chemical signal, to signal or alert his adrenal glands to secrete adrenaline. This reaction accelerates respiration and heart rate, both to supply more energy and oxygen (blood) to suddenly tensing muscles that have to either ‘fight or flight’; or jump off of lawn chairs, to ‘manage’ the eminent danger. This is one of man’s ‘caveman’ genes.

In regards to sexual performance, the brain works in a similar fashion. When man sees, smells, tastes, hears, touches, or is touched by ‘something sexy’, his brain ‘releases’ chemical signals aimed at enticing his sexual-reproductive organs to ‘manage the thing’ being sensed. Under brain-scan technology, known as positron-emission tomography (PET), a specific compartment in the brain illuminates during sex and orgasm; all while the five senses are (erotically) active. Interestingly, that same brain compartment, known as the ventral tegmental area, (VTA) also shows heightened activity during memory-related imagery and vision stimulation1; or when the sixth sense is active.

PET scan technology links all of the (obvious) five senses to the ‘brain / genital’ (big head/little head) connection but, more interestingly, to the often ignored or misunderstood, sixth sense. Man’s ‘sixth sense’ is summed as “his desire, erotic memories and fantasies, lust, and libido.”

In a healthy sexual context, the sheer ‘thought’ of sex ignites the same reactions that are triggered when a person is ‘physically’ engaged in sex as the genitals (gonads and penis) receive persuasive chemical messengers from the brain that stimulate sperm production, genital sensitivity and erections (to name a few reactions). It’s man’s genetic code, his original DNA programming, to be a pro-creative being. Removing religious and cultural connotations, this is man’s primary mission, other than eating, drinking, sleeping and generally seeking shelter.

Considering the mathematical success of the human race we started out with two people (or, at least as Genesis in the Bible may suggest), while today we’re at 7 billion. As God suggested we have been fruitful and have multiplied! By all accounts, man is very successful at fulfilling his genetic obligations which ‘Mother Nature’ made easy by rewarding him with extreme pleasure for just trying to ‘advance the species’.

“Everything man does is motivated by his passion to fulfill his sexual desires”

Dr. Sigmund Freud

“The Big Head or Little Head — Who’s Really in Charge?”

Many consider testosterone the king of all male hormones. However, there’s a new wave of sexual-health specialists who are rethinking a single-hormone approach to sexual enhancement. To them, several hormones need to be considered. In particular, the gonadotrophins; i.e., luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicular stimulating hormone (FSH), both of which influence genital health and performance.

The gonadotrophins are produced through a close relationship between the hypothalamus and pituitary glands; that, coincidently, influence the VTA region. Upon an erotic ‘sensation’ from any one, or all of the six senses, the hypothalamus delivers gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRh) to the pituitary. When properly received, the pituitary responds by ‘releasing’ the gonadotrophins to the genitals that (ultimately) influences testicular sperm production and penile erection; to mention two. This sequence of events is called the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis, or HPTA; some replace testicular with ‘gonadal’, for HPGA, relating to both sexes; female gonads are the ovaries.

One possible reason why some ‘disappointed guys’ no longer respond to their TRT can be blamed on HPTA down-regulation with concurrent declines in the gonadotrophins. Basically, the ‘regular’ operations for the hypothalamus and pituitary have slowed or shut ‘down’, while the testicles and penis are not receiving adequate hormonal (performance) fuel.

Confusingly, many of the men who are dissatisfied with the purported sex-boosting benefits of TRT actually register mid-normal to high-normal total testosterone blood levels, say 500-600 ‘units’. However, down-regulation typically occurs when the brain ‘senses’ the presence of exogenous testosterone. When a man becomes ‘de-sensitized’ in this manner there’s a “disconnect” between his brain and genitals, and when he ‘senses’ sex is about to occur he often complains, “It just isn’t happening”.

Another reasonable hypothesis is to get a better understanding of exactly what is considered “normal” testosterone blood levels. Let’s say a man measures ‘normal’ with a 300 ng/dl (nanogram per deciliter of blood) level of total testosterone, when 250 ng/dl — 750 ng/dl is regarded as a low-to-high “range of normal” by most physicians.  However, consider that when this guy was a young whippersnapper of 21, his blood ‘T’ levels could have measured a normal of 700-1000 units. Many ‘undereducated’ examiners ignorantly inform their sexually challenged male patients, “Your testosterone levels are normal. Go home and get some rest, you’ll be perking up soon”.

However, it’s NOT this simple. These practitioners may have failed to consider this man’s ‘T’ levels are now measuring in at one-third the man he once was. Even this normal ‘T’ levels; especially those exogenously produced, are not providing satisfactory boosts in libido and erection capabilities, for way too many men.

Of course, it’s a lot more complicated than this.

Here are a few things to consider about HRT or TRT:

• Men should cycle on-and-off TRT to avoid HPTA shutdown and testicular suppression to intentionally (attempt to) reboot endogenous hormonal productions. Some rebooting techniques suggest a use of clomid, HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) and other (off-label, very expensive) prescription drugs that ‘trick’ the HTPA into returning to normal function2.

• Physicians must examine men with sexual performance challenges by also taking into account their lifestyle, diet, emotional, physical and financial conditions. Does this man smoke, drink alcohol or use varying medications or drugs? Is he over-caffeinated or over-stimulated? Adrenal suppression depletes a significant portion of a man’s endogenous testosterone.

• Is the man a current or former anabolic steroid user? Date shows that chronic (more than 2-5 years of steady steroid use) can permanently damage the HPTA.

• Work and emotion are so critical. Many men are physically capable of having sex but are in ‘fear of failing’ and experiencing performance anxiety. All it takes is a couple failed (sexual) experiences, (or some condescending remark from an inconsiderate mate), and men will ‘shrivel’ up and encounter the ‘turtle effect’3.

• Is the man financially stable? A man might be able to procreate, per se, but if he’s not capable of supporting his family (or himself) he may feel he is not fulfilling his other two genetic obligations that money provides; (i.e., eating and shelter)! Financially challenged men, especially at the age range from 35-65, often suffer excessive levels of stress that ‘rob them’ of much of their manhood.

• Is the man obtaining proper nourishment from healthy foods and certain supplements? Natural foods and herbs are traced back to the beginning of man, original hunters and gatherers, and who’ve kept man re-producing, and having a lot of sex, ever since. The biggest problem is a diet that is too low in essential fatty acids.

• Normal, even high-normal, blood ‘T’ levels (say 600-700) often fail to enhance many men’s sexual capabilities! You see, a single-hormone ‘sex-enhancing’ strategy may be instigating or exasperating a HPTA disturbance.

Let’s say this for sure. TRT has become BIG business. Once more, too many ill-informed prescribers are striving to propagate testosterone alone hormone to gain business and position themselves on the popular side of consumer demand. (It USED to be that growth hormone was wrongly touted as the single be-all and end-all hormone).

My conclusion to all of you is that TRT is “an infant” science. Doctors simply don’t have all the answers, yet. One thing you can be sure of, PLANET MUSCLE will continue to explore this emerging science and present it all to you!

Protein Requirements: by John Abdo

Protein is a super important class of nutrients our bodies need to survive and THRIVE.  Whether you’re a hard training athlete or someone who just wants to live a normal healthy life, living without protein is impossible.  Protein is needed for proper growth, maintenance and repair of body cells and tissues. Protein is made up of smaller compounds called amino acids (AAs).  When a protein food or supplement contains all of the essential AAs it is regarded as a complete protein. Essential AAs are those which the body cannot synthesize therefore they must be provided from food or supplementation on daily basis.

There are also many other foods which contain protein but are considered incomplete because they lack one or several of the essential AAs. If any one food source lacks an essential amino acid by simply eating another food might just supply the limiting amino acid and make the body accessible to the complete array of protein essentials needed for growth and repair.

When combining incomplete protein foods, even when both foods are incomplete, each one might just have its own missing amino acids that differs from the other food. So when combining foods, one’s chances for obtaining all the essential AAs are greatly increased.

In total, experts claim there are 22 amino acids needed for optimum human health. All of these 22 AAs must be available to the body on a daily basis if one is to live a healthy productive life. Of these 22 AAs, 8 of them are considered essential for human health. The term essential refers to the fact that it is essential one must eat or ingest these AAs on a daily basis from food or supplement sources. The remaining 14 AAs can be produced, or synthesized, by the body in the event they are not made available with food.

Proteins are complex molecular structures which are very interesting and versatile. Most other nutrients contain carbon (C), oxygen (O), and hydrogen (H). Protein contains COH but includes a backbone of nitrogen (N). The more N our bodies can retain the stronger and healthier we become.

When protein intake is adequate to meet normal daily requirements and no more, a condition known as nitrogen equilibrium is experienced. When one is deprived of adequate protein a negative nitrogen balance is the known condition. Of course, equilibrium is the better of the two conditions, but those who maintain a N equilibrium oftentimes remain at the same strength and size despite changes in training intensity.

Negative nitrogen balance is bad news. When one is sick, injured, or being deprived of food, their body immediately tries to fill its nutritional void by cannibalizing itself–also know as catabolism. The body actually eats, or atrophies away its own muscle tissues (heart and lungs included) to extract the amino acids needed for current biological operations. This is why I endorse the daily use of high-protein foods and supplements.

The ideal condition for all health enthusiasts and athletes is to obtain a condition known as positive nitrogen balance. Positive nitrogen balance simply means your tissues are receiving more protein, and retaining more N than what’s being excreted daily.

Physiologic dynamics         TISSUE REMODELING

I’ve explained that protein must be consumed on a daily basis if one is to achieve optimum health and performance. When one is deprived of protein, their body will fall into a catabolic state and literally cannibalize itself until protein is supplied by some food source or supplement. Muscle tissue is living tissue, which means it’s metabolically active. When one attains a healthy degree of lean tissue, they are healthier, and can keep off excess body fat easier as muscles need fuel to operate. In comparison, fat is inert and requires very little energy to maintain itself, that’s why developing muscle helps to keep off excess fat. The muscle maintenance process is fueled by fat. While stored fat, and the maintenance thereof, requires no energy so it remains right where it has decided to embed itself–usually on ones waistline, hips, buttocks, etc, get the point?

Scientists claim that in as little as every 6 months, all of the muscle tissue in our body is completely replaced by the food you eat. Since muscle tissue is constantly being remodeled it makes sense to feed our bodies with adequate protein on a regular basis–high quality foods and protein-rich supplements.

When you see a true health enthusiast, someone who eats correctly all the time, or an athlete who trains hard [and smart] year-round, you see individuals with a symmetrical tone to their physiques and exorbitant levels of energy that can only be explained by proper eating. As their bodies are growing, and at the same time remodeling, their exterior appearance looks very aesthetic due to the fact that the proteins [and other efficacious nutrients] they’ve been eating manifests in ultimate performance and appearance. Maintaining a positive nitrogen balance assures these benefits, and more!

I believe in food first then nutritional supplements to support nutritional voids and to empower the body with extra energy resources. The best times to eat protein is frequently throughout the day. Proper applications to nutritional strategies will produce dramatic benefits to muscle strength and endurance, overall health and, as a Bonus, you’ll look terrific as well!

Gaining Functional Muscle Weight: By John Abdo

It is ironic that a large segment of our population spends billions of dollars each year in attempts to lose excess weight (fat), while others exert lots of energy and also spend big bucks striving to gain weight—muscle weight that is.

No one needs instruction on how to gain fat, that’s easy; just eat and perform little, or no activity. On the other hand, gaining functional muscle weight is a highly sophisticated science, and complicated discipline. Let’s look at it closer.

To gain functional muscle mass, weight training with a specific range of resistances is one of the best prime stimulators, in addition to proper nutrition.

On a microscopic level, weight training actually traumatizes, or tears down muscle fibers; this is scientifically referred to as catabolism. Upon cessation of the catabolic phase, the body’s recuperative metabolism kicks into action; it’s known as the anabolic phase. The anabolic phase is the body’s reparation and rejuvenation metabolism that replenishes depleted energy storages while repairing damaged tissues and growing muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, bones and hormones. The catabolic/anabolic cycles are metabolic counterparts that are referred to as the ‘no pain, no gain’ cycle.

To stimulate the best anabolic state, strength authorities claim that medium-to-heavy resistances should be employed during weight training to induce the best catabolic phase. Generally speaking, many of the basic and/or multi-muscle weight-training movements; like bench presses, squats, power cleans, rows, leg presses and others, should be composed of sets that total between 5-12 repetitions. A weight that can only be performed for repetitions lower than 5 are typically too heavy a load, while a weight that can be performed for repetitions exceeding 12 means are typically too light.

The key to selecting accurate loads or resistances is simply select weights that allow failure between the 5-12 rep range. If a set for an exercise falls short or goes beyond this 5-12 rep range, the athlete simply adjusts their resistance on subsequent sets, or workouts, to remain within the range they need for progressive muscle building.

Although weight training is the main stimulus for anabolism, it’s nutrition that fuels both the catabolic and anabolic phases. Food and supplemental resources obtained from quality proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, certain herbs and adaptogens, all play essential roles in energy expenditure (catabolism/pain) and muscle growth (anabolism/gain).

Of course, gaining functional muscle mass, and the entire discipline of weight training for that matter, are far more complicated than my brief treatise, but there are always exceptions to most every rule. So have fun, experiment and watch your body grow stronger and bigger each and every week.

I Wish You Great Success!

HeF: Our Playboy’s nickname

It’s a Thursday night, approaching 10:00 pm. I’m slumped atop my recliner, ottoman comforting my feet, exhausted after a long day. Remote control in hand, perusing my DVR recordings. I like those storage and pawn shows. So with a few beers to hydrate myself, a can of salted mixed nuts, and a bowl of pretzels within arm’s reach, I click “Play” to watch the latest episode featuring rare Civil War relics.

The instant I stretched over to grab my second beer the phone rings, “Hey numb nuts“, that’s what my crazy-ass x-roommate, Frank, calls me when, in his mind, he thinks he’s got something extraordinary to offer me.

Franks’ quite the lady’s man, to say the least. We call him ‘HeF’; an obvious connotation to Hefner, because the initials for his nickname are HF. In our minds, he’s not just Frank, he’s Horny Frank. His lifestyle characterizes ‘Playboy’ to the truest sense of the word, and would certainly impress the real Hef.

Get your fat ass off that couch and over to Mario’s”, Frank shouts inside the crowded and loud Mario’s. “The place is packed. And Joey, Tommy and me are sitting at a bachelorette party’s table. These chicks are all already drunk, so your cheap ass doesn’t have to worry about spending a friggin penny bro!

Mario’s is a cool place to hangout. It’s quite a drive but they got cheap drinks and I can eat all the salted nuts and pretzels I want. The place always has some kinda private party going on, and the babes regularly out-number the guys.

Before I get a chance to say ‘boo’, Frank hangs up. I could tell the guys are having a great time but, to be honest, I’m getting too old for this nightlife stuff, especially during the week when I have to work the next day. But as corrupting as he is, Frank does motivate me to socialize more than I would on my own and, occasionally, we all get ‘lucky’; if you know what I mean???

If it were up to me, like Frank blurted out, I would bury my ass on my couch, drink beer and stuff my face all night till I crashed.

I’m Irish and the guys are Italian. We’re all horny, but Frank is on another level. He’s always scored with the chicks; and Joey, Tommy and me customarily end up having a blast just being part of Frank’s wild and crazy escapades.

Awhile back, even though there’s-no-way-in-this-lifetime-he-needed-it, Frank enrolled in this on-line course called ‘Pick Up Artist’; PUA for short. When he completed that course you’d think the friggin guy graduated Harvard or won the lottery. He was so gung-ho on mastering, more like proving, his new techniques. And ‘master’ he is.

I listened to Frank, cleaned up in a rush, and since I had started drinking, waved a taxi to take me to Mario’s. (That was the only money I ended up spending that night, thanks to Frank.)

Vow Wow

So I end up at Mario’s. The place is rockin; guess I’m the only person in town interested in Civil War relics. I see Joey first then Tommy. They’re both laughing hysterically pointing at the bachelorette party’s table; not ‘at’ the table, they’re pointing ‘under’ it.

As I bent over to look under the table I thought maybe one of the babes wasn’t wearing any panties and the guys wanted me to see who was showing off her beaver. But it wasn’t just a beaver, it was the bride-to-be. She was the one the guys were pointing to under the table, she was totally naked and sucking off the male stripper; great way to pay honor to her upcoming marriage???

Even though Mario’s gets really wild at times, tonight hit an all-time high. And just take a guess who the friggin stripper was? It was Frank! He sweet-talked the maid of honour into letting him be their exotic dancer; making a deal he’d strip butt naked and dance for her best friends’ bachelorette party in return for a few ‘favors’; wink, wink, wink; or as it ended up Joey, Tommy and me. Frank’s just that type of character; a master PUA, and he gets away with this type of shit all the time; while Joey, Tommy and me just forage up all the left-over’s.

When the bride-to-be is done servicing Frank he tells her, “Hey honey! You gotta take care of my brothers now.” as he points to all three of us, “This is the last time you’ll ever be able to have this much fun before you vow to a life of monogamy!

I won’t speak for Joey or Tommy, but I wasn’t going there, and Frank knew it. Even though he has as many sexual morals as you can count of one, fingerless, hand, Frank let me slide on this one. Plus, he knew Father O’Callahan would choke me silly inside the confessional on Sunday if he found out I had sex with a bride-to-be.

So, instead, Frank reluctantly agrees with me for the first time in my life and turns his attention to the maid of honour he cut his deal with. “Hey honey, it’s your turn to repay those favors you agreed to. Take care of my three little brothers for the great entertainment I’m giving your best friend and bride-to-be, and we’ll call it even!

So there I was, plumped across my recliner getting ready to learn about some rare Civil War relics, drinking beers and stuffing my face with nuts and pretzels, and I end up getting laid by the maid of honour under a table at Mario’s. This is your classic HeF story.

Our Happy Ending

It’s almost 2:00 am when the lights flicker on then off then ON; Mario’s is closing. I hitch a ride home from Frank. He was still fired up, he wanted more, “Hey, Hot Shot’s is open til 5. Let’s swing over there for a couple hours!”. I told him just to take me the f—k home; I was worn out and completely satisfied how things turned out tonight.

As we drove all he did was reminisce every little tiny detail of tonight’s bachelorette party; and when I say detail I mean ‘detail’. He bragged how terrific a PUA he was while emphasizing how great a brother he was for sharing his babes with the PUAs ‘Wingmen’. Wingmen are the PUAs low-life sidekicks who don’t have the balls to approach girls on their own but who stand in the wings; positioned off to the sides, in the background, and who ultimately get laid because they’re all in on some giant sexual conspiracy.

While we’re driving and he’s running his mouth, Frank starts to have trouble clearing his throat, his mouth and throat are obviously worn out. I tell him, “Why the f–k don’t you shut up and save your voice. You gotta get up for work too in a couple of hours.” He asks me to reach into his glove compartment and get him the box of lozenges. As I reached inside I noticed this bottle that was obviously some kind of vitamin supplement or nutritional formula. I picked it up, read the label and ask, “Frank, what’s this?”

For the first time all night Frank started muttering, pretending he desperately needs that throat lozenge; obviously not wanting me to know what he was concealing from all of us. He kept trying to divert me from asking again, using distracting gestures and trying to change the subject like pointing out the window and saying, ‘Hey bro! That’s the new Vette. It’s loaded. Fastest one Chevy’s ever made. That bitch can clock out at 200 mile per hour!

Screw you Frank. Quit changing the subject. Yohimbine? Tribulus? Epimedium? Isn’t that stuff called ‘Horney Goat Weed’ too? Like you need to get more horney!” as I read the label ingredients and try to get him to respond.

I’m asking him what this stuff is but I know what this stuff is. I’m holding the friggin bottle in my hand and just finished reading the label. My beef isn’t that I found a nutritional formula in his glove box; my beef is that Frank never told us about it. He’s breaking one of our brotherly codes of honor. He always tells Joey, Tommy and me we’re the only (three) people on the planet he tells ‘everything’ to; but he’s obviously hiding this stuff from us.

I can read Frank. Male Performance? Stamina? Energy? This label reads exactly like your resume! You never told Tommy, Joey or me about this. Some brother you are. Why are you holding out? Is this what’s making you so friggin horny all the time?

Realizing I’m not letting up and can give a shit about 200 mph Vette’s, Frank gives in a bit and discloses he’s been using this herbal formula for a little over a year. In addition to his daily protein shakes he uses this stuff to nourish his ‘other’ muscle, as he sarcastically refers to it. Frank blurts out in typical Frank style, “It’s like taking steroids for my dick and balls, but this stuff is all-natural and safe. I wanted to make sure it worked for me before I let you and the guys in on this. Does that make you happy now?

I respond, “Oh, so now you’re our crash test dummy? Your PUA course and now steroids for your family jewels are all for us? You’re so full of shit, you weren’t gonna tell us; I know it. You said you’ve been using this for over a year. How long does it take for you to know if that Italian sausage of yours is working better?

I kept laying into him because he knows I don’t eat well and have had some health issues lately. I could really use something nutritious in my life. Frank’s always digging into me for all the weight I’ve gained, how shitty I’m playing these days when we go 2-on-2 on the basketball court, and he knows I’ve lost a lot of my passion, motivation and desire.

Frank always tries to teach us his PUA techniques but they only work when you want them to work; when you have the energy and motivation to make them work. A couch potato like me isn’t ever gonna be a successful PUA. So I think I could really benefit from this stuff. It seems so simple. Just pop a pill. That’s something I’m willing to commit to, especially if it makes me feel, and perform, a fraction as good as Frank does.

Frank continues, “It helps me get hard lightning quick, and stay hard. My erections have all the babes screaming. That’s why they crave me, and my Italian sausage. And the best part is after I’m done cumming I can do it all over again. These herbs are great by themselves but when mixed together into this formula, it’s magic bro, and it does everything the label says it does, and MORE!

I ask, “How much hornier do you want to get Frank? You’ve already screwed every single girl in this town now you’re going to get us all killed by screwing the married ones.”

Correction!” Frank says, “Soon-to-be-married. She hasn’t committed to her vows yet. Father O’Callahan would let you slide for that one!

You’re sick man. Come on, tell me; where I can get this stuff? If it weren’t for you I’d be telling the guys at work later today stories about rare Civil War relics. I’m sure they’ll enjoy my HeF-at-Mario’s story much better!


By the way, I’m Mickey. An Irish Catholic who still goes to church on Sundays. I used to be an alter boy, now I’m a paltry Wingman; Frank has had more influence on my life than Father O’Callahan.

As you can tell, I enjoy boasting about the adventures we have with Frank. There’s plenty more HeF stories I’ll share with you later, but that’s the latest, and craziest one for now.

Hope I wasn’t out of line with my fowl language but trust me, Frank, Tommy and Joey are much worse.

It was nice to talk to you!

Hi John,

I have read about a third of the book so far…GOOD STUFF!   Exactly what I wanted to understand.   This will be a big hit.   There are sooo many guys out there that just don’t know.   Also I was even surprised to read about the soy product affects.    Hmm.   I use soy milk with my bran flakes every day…… No dairy at all!

I’ll keep in touch.

Hello Ron:

The soy might not hurt you all that much, but given the reason why you’re reading my book, it would be wise to (at least) cut down a bit, and especially get the lowest fat versions you can find.  Men also need estrogen but the growers and distributors of soy have done a terrific job at marketing this product and, in my opinion, it’s over rated but, nonetheless, is a healthy natural food. You might want to try Lactose Free NonFat Milk, or brand name Lactaid, much better if your stomach tolerates it.

Little adjustments like these can help to re-set your entire metabolism.

Keep in touch. Good luck to your greater half as well!

Hi John,

Well said…. and my next purchase will be lactaid.

In further reading today…I have book marked pages 100- 103.   Testosterone…

Very interesting…wow!   The average “Joe” out there really do not have a clue about this!

As I look back on my years….  In school I was really never into sports, running, lifting,  etc..    Music and arts were more interesting to me.   Even though I tried sports…and quite clumsy at best…just wasn’t for me.  I felt bad about that ….cause my 2 older brothers (9 – 10 years my senior) were both star athlets in High School.

Could it be that levels of testosterone are less even at that early age?   I will check with my Dr and the exam results from my December 22nd checkup.

Hey Ron:

Choosing music and arts over sports doesn’t necessarily mean lower testosterone, just preference, ambitions and, as a kid, peer influence.  Let me challenge you to ask your doctor some questions you never asked him before, now fully loaded with the information from the book. This will help you because it helps the doctor, a two-way street, and the better you communicate with him then better, and more expedient, he can treat you.

Think Up!

Getting into the book, so far so good. Do you suggest I get a blood test (Hormonal Fuel Tank)?

I actually made love to my wife.  I assumed I would be stronger since it had been a week, it was not. Took a while. I am not willing to tolerate it.  I have changed some of the things I eat already.

Just want to thank you again,

Hi Joell:

Getting a blood exam is always a wise thing to do, and will help steer you in the right direction. Utilize the discounts I’ve been able to secure with the Life Extension Foundation (see below), just give them a call and they can inform you how to proceed.

The Life Extension Foundation

Give everything a little more time, but be confident that changes are definitely being made on a cellular level, and will ultimately manifest in other areas in your body. Keep notes, and send me another email soon.  You deserve to be the absolute best you can be.
