Gums, and Penises--oh my!

I never knew this but I read an article today by Time, written back from 2012, that if you have problems with your gums and teeth, this can effect your erections.  It makes sense now that I read the article and it will probably do the same for you too.  Apparently, the bacteria build up from fighting inflammation in your gums can dump into your blood stream and damage blood vessels, even down in the family jewels.   I will make a confession: I don't brush often.  Interestingly enough, I have less cavities now than when I did when I brushed often.  This is because I eat an apple every day.  This was a good, gentle reminder to not skip brushing so much as I have been. So, if you enjoy sex, brush your teeth more! Click the link below to read more:
