Foot Fixation? Beware of Jock Itch

Lots of men are sole men – dudes with a particular “thing” for feet. As a matter of fact, some experts believe that a foot fixation is the most common fixation, especially among men. But does a foot fixation come with any potential male organ health concerns? Actually, depending upon how the foot fixation is played out in practice, there could be an increased risk of jock itch among men with this proclivity.
The foot fixation

A 2006 research study found that fixations that involve body parts (or objects associated with body parts, such as shoes) are the most common, and that feet and/or toes are the most popular body parts for sensual fixating on.

When most people think of a foot fixation, they tend to picture a man who worships the foot. He may touch, stroke, sniff, or kiss a foot which he finds attractive. As he does this, he becomes more and more excited. Often he self-stimulates his member while touching or kissing the foot in question, achieving a more intense intense point as a result of the contact with the foot.

But there are other ways in which the foot fixation may be acted out. For example, sometimes the fixation focuses on the shoe which has contained the foot, and he may fondle or kiss the shoe as he self-gratifies. Or rather than self-pleasuring himself as he kisses a foot, he may instead ask the owner of the foot to rub his tumescent member with the foot, or may position himself to rub his manhood against a stationary foot.

The jock itch concern

It’s in this latter type of scenario – one in which there is direct physical contact between the foot and the member itself – that the potential concern about jock itch more likely arises.

To understand why, it’s necessary to know a little about jock itch. Also called tinea cruris, jock itch is a fungal infection that can affect the manhood, sacks, buttocks and midsection. It presents as a red rash and, as its nickname suggests, can be extremely itchy.

As a fungal infection, jock itch thrives in hot, moist places – such as the midsection. And it’s very contagious (which is one reason a guy shouldn’t share underwear with another guy).

But here’s the thing: the fungus that causes jock itch is basically the same one that causes athlete’s foot. And so if a man is rubbing a foot all over his manhood, or is rubbing his manhood all over a foot, and that foot has a fungus – it may easily get spread to the member and cause a case of jock itch. (There is also a similar risk if a man places a sock, stocking or shoe on his member; if the wearer of that item has athlete’s foot, the fungus may have spread to the item and may then spread to the member in question.)

Similarly, a man with jock itch can pass his fungus off to a partner’s foot by physical contact between the two.

Treatment

Men with a foot fixation should ideally ask the owner of any feet they fixate on if they have any foot conditions. Barring that, a man should inspect the foot for signs of a fungal infection, and avoid male organ contact if signs are present.

But, though an annoyance, jock itch does respond we’ll to treatments. Keeping the area dry and free from irritation and using any number of jock itch treatments (most of which are over-the-counter) generally brings relief in a few days. A doctor may also be consulted.

Whether from a foot fixation or not, jock itch can dry the skin, so using a superior male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is advised. Find a crème with both she abutter and vitamin E, two well-regarded moisturizers that can help treat dry manhood skin. It also pays to find a crème that contains vitamin B5. Also called pantothenic acid, B5 provides a boost to cell metabolism and helps maintain healthy manhood tissue.

Male Organ Health and Unclothed Running

With summer in full swing, more people are taking advantage of the fine weather to engage in running activities. Some people are also happy that warm weather means it’s easier to engage in outdoor nudist activities. And there are also some people who combine these two areas and engage in unclothed running. For male enthusiasts of the last-named activity, this does raise the question: are there some male organ health concerns to be considered when one is involved in unclothed running?
Yes, there are some issues that unclothed running men should consider – some of which indicate running unclothed may be beneficial, others of which indicate there may be some considerations to remember. And some of which have less to do with being unclothed and more to do with simply running.

- First and foremost: Be prepared for running . A man who has been a couch potato for the last few years shouldn’t jump into an unclothed marathon. Running is great exercise, but like any exercise it needs to be approached sensibly. Any time a person is significantly changing their exercise routine, checking in with a doctor is advised.

- Sunscreen. Those who are practicing nudists already know the importance of sunscreen. But if a guy does not already engage in a nudist lifestyle, he needs to take special care that those areas of the body that rarely see sun are properly protected.

- Get used to the floppiness. Running devoid of compression shorts can be a bonus for the sacks. Compression shorts can restrict blood flow to the midsection, causing a pain in the sacks – so running unclothed can be a plus. But the member and sacks do flop around while running. This can cause some minor pain, but more often it just feels a little awkward and may take some getting used to.

- Get ready for shrinkage. Most manhoods shrink quite a bit during the process of actually running, due to the physical activity itself. Don’t worry – they grow back to their normal size afterward, but many men feel needlessly embarrassed that they don’t present as more “hung” while running.

- Consider shoes. Some people run an unclothed race completely unclothed; others wear a hat or sunglasses – or shoes. If one’s feet aren’t ready for the rough road, shoes are perfectly legitimate.

- The member and sacks don’t get chafed. With no fabric to rub against, unclothed runners don’t develop the chafing and rashing that many do when wearing clothing.

- The male organ stays cooler and less sweaty. Without the heat of clothing, the member stays cooler. In addition, sweat appears and evaporates, rather than pooling. Sweat tends to come with bacteria and also dries out male organ skin oil, resulting in dry member skin. Unclothed running can reduce this male organ health problem.

- Insects can be a problem. Without protective covering, the manhood and environs can be a target for mosquitoes, ticks, etc. checking for such bites is important, especially if the running route goes through wooded areas.

So to summarize, there are positive male organ health benefits (less heat and pooled sweat, etc.) and some disadvantages (direct exposure to sunlight and insects, etc.) to running unclothed. As in most cases, simple common sense can help to ensure a better run for your member.

Whether running unclothed or not, a guy wants to take certain steps to keep his male organ health a priority. One of these is the daily application of a top drawer male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). For best results, the crème should contain L-arginine. This amino acid helps produce nitric oxide, which is part of the process by which male organ blood vessels are kept receptive to increased blood flow. And the crème should also include vitamin A, which has anti-bacterial properties which can help decrease unwanted and persistent manhood odor.

Hypnosis Can Help You Lose Weight

Did you know that more than 65% of adults in the United States are either overweight or obese? That translates into a host of potential health problems caused by excess pounds. High blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and stroke top the list. Many factors contribute to obesity. The number of calories you consume, your ability and willingness to exercise and your genes all coalesce to determine a person’s weight.

Hypnosis is an effective way to help people lose weight when it’s used in conjunction with other weight loss programs. Many people need six to eight sessions to benefit from hypnosis for weight loss. Hypnosis helps reframe the subconscious thinking that affects our eating behaviors. It helps people control non-hunger related eating.

If you eat too much of the wrong foods to reward yourself after a tough day or if you turn to food when you feel sad or lonely, you can change your responses. Hypnosis can strengthen self esteem, improve decision making, and help you manage stress. Studies have shown that people who combine hypnosis with healthy eating programs keep the weight off longer.

Finding the right weight loss and fitness program for you can make the difference between success and failure. Talk with your doctor about the many options available. Some people find it helpful to attend support groups. Others explore low fat cooking or order prepackaged food that takes minutes to prepare. Look at ways you can realistically increase daily exercise. Researchers have determined that several short periods of exercise during the week provides as much benefit as fewer longer exercise sessions. This is good news for people who find it hard to carve out an hour five times a week to go to a gym or fitness club. Maintaining a lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise takes planning and commitment.

When you manage your weight you reduce the risk of obesity-related health problems. You also feel and look your best. Many people find that weight loss eases depression and improves quality of life. Vitality and energy increase while symptoms of chronic pain and discomfort decrease.

It’s often subconscious thinking that creates the greatest obstacles to achieving long term weight management. You can turn the resentment that often slows or stops your weight loss strategy into feelings of success and well being by using hypnosis.
