Ow! Intimacy Tips for Men with Back Pain

Although intimacy drives vary, most men enjoy engaging in sensual activity with a certain frequency, hence the plethora of intimacy tips available that are geared at increasing the amount of intimacy a man gets. But men also have a need for intimacy tips that address issues related to quality, not quantity of intimacy – such as what to do if lower back pain is a deterrent to sensual enjoyment. Manhood care is clearly crucial to a guy’s intimate life, but sometimes there are impediments to optimal sensual engagement that don’t directly concern the manhood itself.

Back pain

Everyone gets some kind of back pain at some point. Often it’s due to an easily-identifiable cause. A guy helps his buddies move into a new apartment and the strain makes his back ache a little for the next day or two. Or sometimes a man over-reaches for something on the top shelf and develops a little twitch in the back that causes discomfort for a while.

But many people get what might be termed more serious back pain – something that has a higher level of pain associated with it and/or that lasts for a longer period of time than a couple of days. Exact statistics are hard to come by, but one study estimates that 36% of the population at some point in their lives experiences a low back pain problem that lasts for a year or more.

And that back pain can have an impact on a man’s intimate life. As many as 84% of men with low back pain say that it has a negative impact on how often (and how well) they have relations. Many men with low back pain also report that when they do have intimacy, it increases the back pain afterward.

Intimacy tips to help

With low back pain a common occurrence, men need to know what steps they can take to help combat this problem and still enjoy coupling. The following intimacy tips may help.

  • Talk to the doctor. It’s good to discuss one’s back pain with a doctor and to see if they have any suggestions or warnings that need to be taken into consideration.
  • Try a new position. This is a no-brainer, but many men don’t think about it. The position employed during relations has a huge impact on both the range and the force of motion involved in thrusting, which in turn relates to the pressure put on the back. A 2014 medical study looked at 5 intimacy positions and their relation to back pain in males. This study found that "doggy" style intimacy – in which the woman is on all fours and the man enters the Female canal from behind while kneeling – is the most supportive of men with back issues. (The study found, interestingly, that this position works best when the woman supports her upper body by leaning on her elbows, rather than on her hands.)
  • Vary an old position. Sometimes small adjustments in a position can make a big difference. The 2014 study mentioned above found that men who had intimacy in the missionary position experienced less back strain if they supported their upper body with their hands, rather than resting on their elbows.
  • Work it out before and after. It helps to prep the sore back before relations and soothe it afterwards. For example, applying a nice warm towel to the back beforehand can help relax the muscles; a nice massage afterward can similarly loosen the muscles and ease strain.

Men with back pain of course need some general intimacy tips that don’t relate to the back. For example, all men should regularly apply a top notch manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to keep the manhood healthy and ready for sensual opportunities. Making sure the manhood is properly sensitized increases enjoyment of sensual acts, so using a crème with acetyl L carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient, is key. The crème also needs to include vitamin D, the "miracle vitamin" that supports healthy male organ cellular function and aids in fighting disease. A properly cared-for manhood will amply reward its owner, whether he suffers from back pain or not.
