Low male libido causes
Aging is the main causal factors of low male libido; however, it is not the only reason for this condition. All men are different and although many maintain their sexual desire throughout life, others suffer a break at certain times and due to various causes. The main causes can be:

Medical problems: Health problems such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, also influence sexual desire, as well as some anti-AIDS drugs and hair loss.
Hormonal causes: Testosterone is the hormone in both male and female, is responsible for sexual desire. In some chronic diseases, due to some medication or after andropause, testosterone levels can undergo breakage, having negative consequences on the male libido. Sexuality can also be affected by low levels of thyroid hormone or prolactin produced in the brain.

This concern about the penis size also existed in other periods of history; however, cultures like ancient Chinese, they were focused on strengthening the penis and erections as a way to increase the sexual pleasure of the man and his partner and reduce unnecessary anxieties.
Taoist sexual practices are specially designed exercises to cultivate vital energy, including sexual, and improve sexual performance of men and women. The following exercises can be helpful to have a harder erection throughout the intimate relationship as well as to enhance your male sexual energy and your level of sexual desire.

The idea is to mobilize energy and also enjoy playing without producing exhaustion.

This exercise allows you to generate and retrieve male sexual energy. Through this massage, boost testosterone level, a sex hormone which is produced in the testes. It serves to revitalize the sexual energy, stronger erection and relieve any pressure in the testes that might feel after intercourse. The Taoist Master Mantak Chia suggests the following steps:
· First, rub your hands to warm and mobilize the healing energy on them.
· With your index finger and thumb hold one of your testicles and massage gently but firmly at once, for one or two minutes. If you feel any pain continue with gentle massage until it disappears. Pain is a signal lock and massage helps bring energy and blood to that area, thereby prevent blocking. Then do the same with the other testicle.
· Then, lift your penis and using middle finger gently tap your testicles for two minutes. This massage invigorates and increases sperm production.
· Finally, hold your base of your penis and scrotum between your thumb and forefinger, and thrust forward, while pushing your pelvic muscles back. Then pull to the left as you run the pelvic muscles to the right, and vice versa. Finally pulling your penis and scrotum down, while directing your pelvic muscles up. It is recommended to repeat this sequence of exercises 9, 18 or 36 times. It also helps maintain healthy sperm ducts.

This exercise is to hold small weights with an erect penis to increase their strength. Attach two objects to your penis with a string of 10-12 inches: one at the base of the penis and another near the glans. Both objects must weigh a total of about 120 grams. It is suggested to do this weight lift for 20 to 40 times a day. You can increase a little weight as you increase your strength, but do not overdo or strain yourself too much. This is not a competition.

Do it gently but firmly while avoiding rapid jerky movements that could cause injury to your penis. Start with 20 repetitions daily and increases gradually to perform 100 repetitions.
