Golden rules of assertiveness
increase in the amount of blood flowing to the penis. This bloodgets trapped in the penis andcauses it to become long and firm.Sometimes boys who are havingsex lose the erection. This may bedue to fear or other stress. Oldermen sometimes cannot sustain anerection because they suffer froma disorder like diabetes which canaffect the blood flow to the penis.In contrast, some men have noproblem with erections but cannotimpregnate a female. They areinfertile. The biggest cause of infertility is untreated STDs. STDsmay cause scars that block thetubes leading from the testicles. Theman can still have erections andejaculate, but the seminal fluid willcontain very few or no sperms atall.If you are worried about not beingable to have a baby, the best thingis to protect yourself from STDsat all times. So boys, do not listento grandparents who want you tohurry to produce babies for theclan. Smile at them, take your timeand choose the best.
