Today man lives much more over a long time span. It has opportunity that the man who lived in the millenia before never had. Today man has the possibility of living a new phase of his life and manhood, a new neo andro phase. From here the term androphase.
The existence of male changes and modification with age have been or a long time questioned. The importance of sexual changes with aging have grown in modern society. Reasons for that are longer life, better health conditions, increased importance of non reproductive aspects of human sexuality. Male sexual changes with aging end with regression of all aspects of masculinity. Androphase has a different onset and development, different clinical manifestations. Androphase can begin very early (from 40-45). There are three phases of the androphase: beginning phase, florid state and late phase. Late androphase is the most known phase. It is usually confused with andropause as a whole. In late androphase penetration is not possible. The florid state is featured by inconstant erections, intermittent potency and ability to penetrate, high sensibility to stressors. The beginning phase is a phase where modifications are not always realized. In some people, androphase modifies their sexual desire; in others it shakes their male identity.
