Let’s face it… dating can be the worst! With all of the unmet expectations, awkward and sometimes awful sexual interactions, and the inevitable letdowns, it is a wonder why we put ourselves through it at all! Except for… well, it is also sort of the best at the same time. Mitchell from Cali writes, “I don’t know if I am choosy or just jaded, but I am starting to think if I will ever find someone who I actually want to be in a relationship with again. Is it all pointless?” After dating a few people who were just so wrong from the start, it isn’t just ok to become more apprehensive about dating someone new; it’s a survival skill. But if you find yourself thinking that you are just not cut out for a healthy romantic relationship, you are becoming your inner saboteur. STAYING READY WITH PETER PANOS Peter Panos, Lifestyle Blogger @thepeterpanos We’ve all been there: you’re going out for a night with friends and you’re hoping that your night plays out like the romantic comedies we gush over (I’m always Jennifer Lopez in mine). You know, the ones where you’re out sipping on your favorite cocktail and in walks the guy of your dreams (preferably in slow motion). Small talk leads to laughs, the laughs lead into a passionate gaze into one another’s eyes, and the next thing you know, things get steamy. And if you’re lucky, you took care of everything before you went out as part of your getting ready routine so you’re good to go for a night of passion. But what happens when you met someone you’re connecting with unexpectedly? If you’re anything like me, you want to be ready at all times. And guys, you know what I mean. Whether just going out with friends or if I’m on a date that could lead to more, I like to make sure that I’m always feeling fresh and clean. That’s one of the many reasons that I love Pure for Men. They are an all-natural cleanliness supplement brand that was developed especially to keep their clients ready for those hot and heavy moments. I love that their products let you confidently enjoy private moments without being nervous that you aren’t. These are some of my favorite products that I use from their line!
Dietary Fiber I make sure to take the Pure for Men high-grade fiber supplement every day. It’s an all-natural supplement designed for gay men to take away the anxiety out of bottoming and you enjoy your most intimate moments, no matter how spontaneous they may be. These supplements are a blend of chia, flaxseed, psyllium husk, and aloe vera. Pure for Men ensures that you feel good, stay clean, and #STAYREADY when it matters most. Soap Bar This is an all-in-one cleansing and deodorizing soap that is made with activated charcoal and gently cleanses and nourishes your body. It washes away any odor-causing bacteria and excess oils and the best part is it won’t dry you out. I’m very particular with what body washes and soaps I use in the shower because my skin tends to be drier after I shower so I try to stay away from any soaps that tend to make my skin feel dry. But the Stay Ready Bar is made with anti-inflammatory tea tree oil that has a super soothing effect on your skin. The best part is that it’s made with lavender essential oil (which is one of my all-time favorite scents!) and only leaves you with a very light scent that won’t clash with whatever fragrance or deodorant you choose to wear. Body Scrub The Stay Ready Scrub is my go-to an all-in-one exfoliating scrub that I love to use in the shower. It’s a super hydrating scrub that gently exfoliates anywhere and everywhere to smooth out skin and eliminate any unwanted odors. With a fresh scent of lemon and spearmint, it will always leave you with a bottom worth tending to. Cream The Stay Ready Cream is an all-in-one hydrating and deodorizing lotion that has quickly become one of my go-to body lotions after I shower. Not only. does it hydrate and nourish your skin, but it also leaves you with a sexy mint and clove scent that smells super sexy and clean. Lube With so many lubricants on the market, it can be hard to find the right one for you. But honey, I mean it when I tell you that the Stay Ready Lube is the one! This premium lubricant has an amazing non-sticky formula that helps you feel empowered in bed and allows you top or bottom with complete confidence. It is that it is available in two formulas: silicone or water-based. The best part is that it’s also super easy to cleans up!
It’s no secret that we gay men are active and if you find yourself needing an energy boost, Vitamin B12 may be the answer. Deficiency can lead to fatigue, weakness, constipation, weight loss, loss of appetite, neurological changes, dementia and memory problems, depression, confusion, and difficulty with balance. Men should get 2.4 mcg of B12 on a daily basis.
This is one of the most important minerals to look for when finding a multivitamin that has it all. Zinc plays a role in cell growth, division, and DNA synthesis. It helps with growth development and aids in immune health and wound healing. Men should get at least 11 mg of zinc every day.
One of the most important vitamins during this time of a global pandemic is Vitamin C. This is an antioxidant that aids in healing and immune function, taken daily can be very effective and not just when you are sick. Men should get 90 mg daily.
Multivitamins have been the go-to supplement to fill nutrient gaps for the last few decades, and they do provide a strong health boost for those lacking in certain nutrients. Taking the right vitamins and supplements may help fill nutrient gaps and greatly benefit your health, that is why we are here to help.
