America's leading dating and sex expert gives the scoop on keeping both your Mo and your body in top shape.

On Moustaches and Penises

Size Does Matter
Whoever said size doesn’t matter hasn’t kissed a man with a moustache. Guys, the bigger your moustache, the more you need to worry about your whiskers rubbing her the wrong way. Your participation in Movember is definitely a turn on, but nobody likes a hair in their mouth after a kiss. Take the time to trim hair away from your upper lip. We love your moustaches, but we don’t want to kiss them!

Keep Things Trimmed 
Speaking of grooming, Movember is a great opportunity to have an open conversation with your partner on body grooming. As you work to perfect your moustache, ask your partner if they’re interested in you trimming, shaving or waxing any other parts of your body. If you are open to some adventurous fundraising, consider collecting donations in exchange for a public chest waxing. 

Two Balls, Zero Strikes
Take an active role in protecting your balls by doing a monthly testicular self-exam. From the American Cancer Society, “Hold your penis out of the way and check one testicle at a time. Hold the testicle between your thumbs and fingers of both hands and roll it gently between your fingers. Look and feel for any hard lumps or smooth rounded bumps or any change in the size, shape, or consistency of the testicles.” 
Remember that it’s very common for one testicle to be slightly bigger than the other, and it’s normal for one to hang lower than the other. 

Swipe Right on Movember 
Attention single men, women find the following things sexy: foreign accents, six pack abs, well-tailored jeans and men who are committed to a cause. If you're really into Movember and you're actively on the dating scene, show off your moustache in your dating profile pic. Just do us one favor: Caption your picture with a nod to Movember so we know it’s for the cause.  
Use your moustache wisely during Movember to show off your commitment to the cause because they can go from cute to creepy starting on December 1st. 

Expand Your Workout 
I know what you’re thinking. Kegels? For Men? Yup. Commonly thought to only apply to women, Kegel exercises are essential to treating and preventing prostate cancer; and, are important for good sex. Doctors recommend Kegel exercises before and after prostate cancer surgery in order to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Strong muscles provide more control over the flow of semen, helps the firmness of penis during erection and the shooting power of an ejaculation. 

Cover your Lip, Cover your Tip
A big part of a man's overall health is his sexual wellness. And when it comes to sex, it's not only about protecting yourself against the risk of STI's, it's also about protecting your partner.
