Dr. Oz: The Penis Is A Dipstick For The Male Health (VIDEO)

Television personality and health expert Dr. Mehmet Oz told HuffPost Live Monday that libido -- or lack thereof -- can provide a glimpse into the overall state of a man's health.

"The penis is a dipstick for the male health," Oz told HuffPost Live host Jacob Soboroff and Alyona Minkovski. "If it's not able to get erect, it's a reflection that the cells that allow blood to engorge that organ aren't working in other parts of the body; they're not working in your kidneys, not working in your heart, your brain, your skin -- there are lots of issues going on."

"And so when people are not embarrassed but thoughtful about what this signal is, then, you know, people find solutions," Oz added.

Dr. Oz appeared on HuffPost Live to discuss a recent talk he gave to a group of governors, during which he advised all of them to have more sex so that they might live longer, healthier lives.
