Jelqing! Pumping! But BEWARE the Enzyte Ad!!!



Dear Couch,

Actually this is more an answer than a question. I have used pumps in the past and I agree with the few who say they do work. When I started using it I was 6' by 4 1/2 in circumference. I am now 7' by 5 and haven't used the pump for almost a year so the gains are permanent. As for the Jelqing method I have tried it and it seems to work although its hard to remember to do it all the time on a regular basis. I don't believe it can help stop prostate cancer but as for a bigger penis I think it works for some. Some see gains and some don't I know it worked for me.

Signed,
Kevin


Dear Kevin,

We're glad to hear you found something which satisfied your needs and more power to you. We're not going to comment one way or another since, as you mentioned, we've already made our feelings clear on both jelqing and pumping.

We are however going to take this opportunity to address a television commercial we saw today. ' Whoopee!' you're saying. ' I come here for sex advice and these freaks want to discuss TV ads!' . Well, yes we do. Allow us to paint a picture for you. We're working diligently on this site as that's all we do. The real owners of the site left a television on for us to watch from our cages, and one of those pharmaceutical ads starts playing. We didn't pay too much attention to it at first, the usual calming voice talking about symptoms and softened images of people being happy. Then we hear ' ...penis..' and ' ...enlargement...' . ' What's this?!?' , we say, all one thousand of us looking up from our keyboards. A prescription drug promising increased penis size?!? ' Look! A web address for the product!' ....

...Ah, Enzyte (suffragium asotas) capsules, still looking like a legitimate drug manufacturer, then we see that evil word, 'supplement'. It's not an FDA approved drug at all. Just another Yohimbe/Niacin supplement with one hell of a deceitful marketing campaign. Normally, we don't make a big deal out of these supplements. We just point them out, brand a snake-oil-salesman label on their asses and send them out with the rest of the herd. But this is different, VERY DIFFERENT! This television commercial is VERY convincing in presenting itself as your average, FDA approved, fine for human consumption, drug ad. IT AIN'T!!

Notice that in the television ad and on the Web site, the words 'suffragium asotas' appear in parentheses below the 'product' name. This is part of their blatant attempt to deceive consumers into believing this is a legitimate drug product. We've all seen this same thing on legitimate drug marketing materials as it's a standard in the industry. The words in parentheses refer to the chemical name of the product, such as VIAGRA? (sildenafil citrate). Sildenafil citrate is a meaningful chemical identifier. Now look at Enzyte (suffragium asotas). What is ' suffragium asotas' you may ask. It's nonsense. It is not a chemical reference and best we can figure, suffragium is Latin for ' right to vote' . Asotas appears to be pure gibberish. The person at the other end of the ordering number translated this as Latin for ' better sex' . Yea, right.

On the Web site, a supposed ' independent study' is referenced (which is now referred to as a Confidential Customer Survey) to support their product claims. No where on that page or in the rest of the site is it mentioned which company performed the ' independent study' . This is a very important omission as the entire point of an independent study is to hire a company whose sole business is to perform Independent studies and noting the research company's name is what gives posted results validity. From what their site documents, they could have pulled those numbers out of their you know whats as far as we know. As a matter of fact, they state the data was ' ... returned to Lifekey Healthcare, Inc. for interpretation of results.' which is their own company, so we can hardly consider that an ' Independent Study' .

LifeKey Healthcare, Inc, according to the Better Business Bureau of Cincinnati is a reseller of products from 21st Century Nutritional Products, a vitamin and supplement manufacturer. The Better Business Bureau report goes on to state (at the time of this writing), ' Based on BBB files, this company (LifeKey Healthcare, Inc) has an unsatisfactory record with the Bureau due to unanswered complaint(s).' Gee, what a surprise.

We're not going to review this products 'formulation' as listed on this page. All of these ingredients encompass the average list of the supplement industry's ' Magic Elixirs' for anything related to the penis and also supposed 'energy boosters'. Just remember that many of them can cause drug interactions with any current medications and you should always check with your doctor before starting a supplement.

So be careful out there people! The supplement industry is highly unregulated and people will take advantage of this fact. Let us clarify here that we are not suggesting LifeKey Healthcare or Enzyte are in any way stating this is an FDA approved drug. They clearly use the word 'supplement' which under current laws will cover their ass. What we have a really hard time with, is the marketing image being used here. We think even an above average intelligence person could easily mistake this ad campaign as being that of a legitimate, FDA approved, product. Especially the television ad.
