There are over 40 billion e-mails exchanged around the world in one day, and around 40% of that is spam. That's a whole lotta spam. Who falls for this crap anyway?
Apparently, a lot of men are falling for these kinds of advertising. Sales of Longitude, penis enlargement pills often advertised on the internet and television a couple years ago, were up around $80 million in 2003. That's a lot of pills, that's a lot of money, and that's a lot of disappointed and short-changed men (pun intended).
And you still see advertisements in other mediums including television and magazines. Everyone knows about that stupid smiling Bob that goes around impressing neighbors, losing his shorts in the pool, and hitting the golf ball further than everyone because of his newfound confidence. Enzyte, made by Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals Incorporated, originally was advertising that it would increase your penis size by 41%.
David Parker, of Sydney Austrailia, had a filed a class action lawsuit against the makers of Enzyte last year. "Mr Parker took Enzyte for the directed eight-month period, but "experienced no increase", the lawsuit stated. "Mr Parker went to get his double-your-money-back offer, and they said it was no longer in effect. The lawsuit states that "Berkeley's failure to honour its 'double your money back' guarantee was deceptive, unconscionable, and fraudulent."
Products like Longitude and Enzyte contain natural herbs and suppliments - many of them believed to increase penis power. Things like ginseng root, ginko biloba, saw palmetto, and maca are believed to have been used as sexual enchancements for centuries.
True, many of the ingredients are showing promise in helping men's health in certain areas. But again, is there the right quantity in the bottle to help? Is it the right quality to help? Is it safe?
Many of these pills say they help increase blood flow to the penis. OK...that's what Viagra does. But it doesn't permanently make your penis bigger. "It makes no sense medically," according to urologist Kenneth Goldberg from Dallas. "There's no way that increasing blood flow to the penis, as Enzyte claims to do, will actually increase its size."
With the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, the FDA's ability to require information on adverse drugs reactions and tests for safety and efficacy for these suppliments is non-existent. In other words, those vitamins you're taking have NOT had to meet any real standards at all.
It's really about making money and selling dreams. "You've got an industry that just can invent something, grind up some root, put it in a bottle, [and] sell it," said Dr. Sydney Wolfe, author of Best Pills, Worst Pills. When you have a company spending over $1 million per month on advertising, it's easy to see where their resources are going.
With Enzyte, you'll pay nearly $100 for 60 capsules. Longitude was around $60 a bottle, but cost only $2.50 per bottle to manufacture! Talk about money-maker.
What's the solution?
How about trashing all those stupid spam e-mails? These products prey on a man's obsession with having a bigger penis. It's that simple. They hit on men's insecurties. Couple that with performance anxiety and inferiority complexes, you've got a ton of guys willing to pay a lot of money for a "miracle pill."
Here's a list of some things that do not, may not, might, or do help male sexual health:
1)Various exercise techniques, often called "Jelq" or "Jojido" exercises. This is based on the premise that if you crank your yank in various ways, you'll strengthen the penis and it will grow. This is a bunch of hogwash. After pressing, pulling, and yanking, and tearing, all you're going to get is a sore and inflammed member. Now STOP it!
2)Lose weight. Being overweight will make your unit look smaller. High blood pressure also negatively affects erections.
3)Pumps. Ouch! Pumps don't make you bigger permanently. And you could hurt yourself, Hoover-boy!
4)Viagra/Cailis. Do NOT buy this stuff via internet or spam. You do not know what you're getting.
5)Surgery. Side effects include scarring and loss of function. Plus, with the injections, you might end up with a lumpy looking penis. Um, no thanks.
6)Using weights. Again, ouch! Stretching the tunica albuginea is dangerous. Plus, it will probably really really hurt. What if you break it?
7)Proper, safe, proven suppliments. "Nature's Viagra." Make sure to get them from a reputable source that follows the United States Pharmacoepia standards. These helpful suppliments are:
Horny goatweed - wow, this stuff actually makes you horny
Niacin - B3 also lowers bad cholestorol and increases the good stuff.
Omega-3 fatty acids - does a body good
Pycnogenol and L-arginine - Batman and Robin of good penis health.
Pycnogeonol is an antioxidant and helps with blood circulation. L-arginine has been known to help with erection duration and quality.
OPCs - oligomeric proanthocyanidins (phew!). Powerful antioxidant and blood vessel protector. (By the way, I take these every single day).
8)Getting the right information. Dr. Steven Lamm is an expert in this field, and his book, The Hardness Factor, cuts through all the bull and gives men the facts - and a step by step plan to increase sexual fitness.
PT Barnum said, "There's a sucker born every minute." Don't be a sucker. BUYER BEWARE! So trash that spam, remove that heavy weight you've tied to your unit, and go find some horny goat weed! Then go to a mirror and say, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and I'm HARD enough. And doggone it, people like me!"
