Robert: Men are warned not to rub toothpaste on their junk
I guarantee you, the look you have on your face right now is the same one I had on my face when I read the same headline.
A sort of urban legend has gone viral on popular websites like YouTube and Reddit, claiming that toothpaste can improve a man’s sexual performance by staving off premature ejaculation and assisting with erectile dysfunction.
“I’d urge anyone thinking of trying this rather worrying ‘toothpaste’ technique to cease and desist – because it won’t do anything at all to combat premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction, despite the claims being made in these videos,” says an medical expert. “The peppermint oils and other chemicals in toothpaste, including bleaching agents, can be extremely irritating to sensitive skin, by putting it on your genitals you actually risk a mild burn, as well as blisters and scarring. And toothpaste should in no way be used as a lubricant, either.”
So in summary, don’t put toothpaste near your downstairs area.
