Benefits of Cold Water Showers
While doctors may no longer instruct their patients to take a cold bath and call them in the morning, a shot of cold water can still impart real health benefits:
Improves circulation. Good blood circulation is vital for overall cardiovascular health. Healthy blood circulation also speeds up recovery time from strenuous exercises and work. Alternating between hot and cold water while you shower is an easy way to improve your circulation. Cold water causes your blood to move to your organs to keep them warm. Warm water reverses the effect by causing the blood to move towards the surface of the skin. Cold shower proponents argue that stimulating the circulatory system in this way keeps them healthier and younger looking than their hot water-loving counterparts.
Relieves depression. Lots of great men from history suffered bouts of depression. Henry David Thoreau is one such man. But perhaps Thoreauís baths in chilly Walden Pond helped keep his black dog at bay. Research at the Department of Radiation Oncology at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine indicates that short cold showers may stimulate the brainís ďblue spotĒ- the brainís primary source of noradrenaline ó a chemical that could help mitigate depression. I guess a bout of the blues isnít so bad after all.
Keeps skin and hair healthy. Hot water dries out skin and hair. If you want to avoid an irritating itch and ashy elbows, turn down the temperature of your showers. Also, cold water can make your manly mane look shinier and your skin look healthier by closing up your cuticles and pores.
Strengthens immunity. According to a study done in 1993 by the Thrombosis Research Institute in England, individuals who took daily cold showers saw an increase in the number of virus fighting white blood cells compared to individuals who took hot showers. Researchers believe that the increased metabolic rate, which results from the bodyís attempt to warm itself up, activates the immune system and releases more white blood cells in response.
Increases testosterone. During the 19th century, many doctors and ministers recommended that young men take baths in cold water to reduce the sin of ďself-pollution,Ē i.e. whacking off. Cold water was thought to extinguish a manís flaming carnal desires. There was even a ghastly device invented on this principle.
How wrong they were! The same study by the Thrombosis Research Institute cited above showed that cold water showers actually increase testosterone production in men. Increased testosterone levels not only boost a manís libido, but also his overall strength and energy level. If youíre looking to increase your testosterone, instead of juicing up like Mark McGwire, hop into a cold shower.
Increases fertility. Trying to become a dad? Cold showers are good for your little swimmers. Your testes arenít meant to get too hot; thatís why they hang outside your body. Sperm counts decrease when the temperature of a manís testes increases. Experiments done in the 1950s showed that hot baths were an effective contraceptive. Men who took a 30 minute hot bath every other day for 3 weeks were infertile for the next six months. More recently, the University of California at San Francisco did a study with men who were exposed to 30 minutes of ďwet heatĒ (hot baths and such) a week. When the men cut this exposure out, their sperm count went up by 491%, and their spermís motility improved as well. While switching from a hot to cold shower may not have as dramatic an effect, if youíre trying to create some progeny, it surely wonít hurt.
Increases energy and well-being. Every time I end a shower with cold water, I leave feeling invigorated and energized. Your heart starts pumping, and the rush of blood through your body helps shake off the lethargy of the previous nightís sleep. For me, the spike in energy lasts several hours. Itís almost like drinking a can of Diet Mountain Dew, minus the aspartame. And while it hasnít been studied, many people swear that cold showers are a surefire stress reducer. Iím a believer.
Getting Started with Cold Water Showers
If youíve spent most of your life taking hot showers, suddenly turning the dial in the other direction can be a big shock to the system. I took a break from the James Bond Showers for a few months. When I decided to get started again with them, my heart almost jumped out of my chest, and I nearly passed out from hyperventilating when the cold water hit my body. Too much, too soon.
My suggestion (based on personal experience) is to gradually decrease the temp of the water so your body can adjust.
Which reminds me, some people with certain conditions should avoid cold showers because of the shock to the bodyís system. If you have the following conditions, youíll have to harness your inner 007 another way:
* Heart disease. If my normal, healthy heart felt like it was about to explode, imagine how a diseased heart will feel.
* High blood pressure. The contraction in your blood vessels caused by cold water could cause a stroke. Apparently.
* Overheated or feverish. Your blood vessels need to dilate in order to release heat. Cold water causes them to constrict.

This doesn't seem to say anything about warming up being bad in any way (unless maybe you're trying to get your lady pregnant), it just touts the benefits of cold showers. No reason you can't do both if you want to, i.e., warmth with PE, cold showers another time.

I actually have STOPPED warming up because I don't want excessive heat anywhere near my testicles anymore.
Now, for a warmup, I am simply doing 10-20 mini-jelqs to get the blood flowing and the tissues somewhat stretched.
Good post superman. Rep points for sure!

I'm gonna stick to warming for the duration of my noob routine, but excluding the balls. After that I'll see what I'll do.Self-improvement is a good thing on any field. The field of schlong is no exception.

Bed Fowers or lazy ass stretches are pretty decent at warming while excluding your testicles.

People are way too paranoid when it comes to heat and testicles. You balls can take some heat. Just dont put a laptop over your balls for 3 hours +. Take a warm shower or warm bath, you will NOT become sterile, I guarantee it.
Putting cold water on my penis is, in my opinion, a really crappy means of making yourself heal. The penis is very sensitive to temperature. Put cold on your dick, it'll turtle up. Turtling up sucks, in my opinion.
Heat will give you that nice, plump flaccid hang.
Dont make big claims like "Warm up is possibly VERY DANGEROUS"...thats just bullcrap. We have proof that heat is BENEFICIAL for your dick. Not the other way around.Starting stats: October 15th, 2008 - NBPEL: 6.25' EG: 5.00'
Current stats October 15th, 2009 - (100% erection) NBPEL: 7.20' EG: 5.375'
Goal: NBPEL: 8' EG: 6' (objective: girth)
