ExtenZe, XploZion and Sweeten69

Three products have cum my way, so to speak, from the folks at BeAMonStar.com. (They get extra credit for the clever name.) The three products are ExtenZe, XploZion and Sweeten69. Let’s talk about these “supplements” one at a time.

ExtenZe — one week supply — $16.99

For review purposes, I received a two-week supply (14 capsules) of ExtenZe. Theextenze.jpg manufacturer claims that: “ExtenZe is a powerful 100% natural male herbal enhancement pill that is safe, effective, and it is made with high quality ingredients known to aid in improving the health of the genital region.”

Roughly translated, this strongly suggests that the consumer will get a bigger boner by using this supplement. I realize the manufacturer is careful not to come right out and say that, but the wording they use, along with the attendant media that proliferates on the net and TV about this product, leaves little room for doubt about what they are selling.

Here’s a quote from a website that sells ExtenZe: “Having a larger penis and enjoying a more fulfilling sex life is possible and attainable. With today’s technical advancements in chemistry and medicine, there is no reason for a man not to have a larger, healthier penis and a better love life. A man with a larger, harder penis may be more confident and experience greater pleasure from sex.”

  • My experience — I scrupulously followed the directions for use presented by the manufacturer. I experienced no penis growth. Can’t rightly say my cock was any healthier. Nor did my love life improve. But I didn’t experience any adverse side effects either.

When I spoke with a company representative by phone to discuss my findings, she told me the manufacturer recommends an eight-week regime before one can begin to experience the full effect of ExtenZe. WOW! By my calculations that’s a $135 commitment just to get up to a baseline. I didn’t have an 8-week supply to test, so the jury is still out on that claim for me.

Certainly the list of herbal ingredients (and you can get a full list on their website) may improve blood circulation to the genital area. Which may, in turn, assist in achieving maximum erection potential. But will it add inches? Jeez, I seriously doubt that! But better blood flow will surely do wonders for one’s stamina, wellbeing and all-round genital health. Hey, it may even make you a bit more horny.

XploZion — 1 Single Package — $4.99

For review purposes I received two packets containing two capsules each of XploZion, whichxplozion.jpg equals two doses. The manufacturer claims that: “XploZion naturally improves the health of body systems that make the male orgasm happen. You’ll begin to notice results within one hour of your first use. XploZion is based on the same science as ExtenZe, the leading male enhancement supplement now endorsed by the top 12 male porn stars in America.”

Being a porn producer myself, I doubt if I’d ever put any credence in the testimony of any porn star, top tier or not. But it probably doesn’t hurt the ad campaign to use such a claim. 😉

  • My experience — I followed the directions for use presented by the manufacturer of XploZion. I experienced no orgasmic improvement even after two uses. But I also didn’t experience any adverse side effects either.

Again, when speaking the company representative by phone to discuss my findings, she told me the company recommends an eight-week regime to begin to experience the full effect of XploZion. YIKES! By my calculations (60 capsule at $49.95) that’s around $125. I didn’t have an 8-week supply to test, so I can’t comment further on that claim.

As with the previous product, the list of ingredients (and you can get a full list on their website) may improve blood circulation to the genital area, which may assist in the production of more ejaculate. But staying well hydrated will accomplish that too. However, better blood flow will do wonders for one’s libido and all-round genital health. Again, no quarrel with that.

Sweeten69 — 1 Single Package — $4.99

For review purposes I received two packets containing two tablets each of Sweeten69. Whichsweeten69.jpg equals four doses. The manufacturer claims that: “Sweeten69 works with your body’s natural processes to improve the way you taste to your partner when you’re getting really close!” (How’s that for a swell euphemism for cocksucking and pussy-lickin’?) They go on to say; “Using Sweeten69 as a daily dietary supplement, you can actually improve the way your secretions taste during sex.”

  • My experience — I followed the directions for use presented by the manufacturer of Sweeten69. I did notice an improvement in the taste of my own cum with just one use. (But my spooge wasn’t bad tasting to begin with, don’t cha know!) It was noticeably sweeter after using Sweeten69.

Unlike the products above, I couldn’t find a complete list of the proprietary blend of pharmaceutical-grade herbal ingredients. I don’t know why that is.

You may say; “Wait a minute, Dr Dick. Haven’t you mentioned on your site that a guy can sweeten his spooge simply by avoiding junk foods and eating lots of fruits and greens? Didn’t you say that fruit juices like pineapple and cranberry are known to make a dude’s cum taste sweeter? That fruits like melon, mango, apple, or grape, will sweeter your jizz? Didn’t you also say that vegetables like parsley and celery would also sweeten your spunk?” Well, aren’t you clever! Indeed, I did say all of those things at one time or another.

The problem is; unless your eating habits reflect the guidelines above, it’s gonna be difficult to carry around a melon, a jug of fruit juice and/or a bunch of celery or parsley to use on the spare of the moment. That’s why Sweeten69 is a nice alternative. Unlike raw fruits and vegetables, Sweeten69 will easily slip into the smallest purse or the tightest hip pocket…right next to your condoms. 😉

To conclude, it’ll be up to each prospective consumer to determine if the outlay of cash for these products is worth the uncertain benefits. If you do choose to buy, even just enough product to see if it works for you; be sure to buy only from the manufacturer’s website or a reputable online retailer. Be a conscientious consumer! Avoid any auto-billing schemes. There are all kinds of con-job operations out there that will offer free samples of these and other such products, or deep discounts for first time buyers. Once they have your credit card they run up exorbitant monthly charges. So, beware!

Pump’s Effect on Penis Size

This is Part 4 of a 4-part series

In the last section we got acquainted with penis pumps in an up close and personal way. Since there is general agreement that a penis pump can indeed be useful in helping a guy get a hardon, we began our first pumping experience with that precise goal; getting a strong, full erection. In doing so we paid attention to the proper and safe use of a pump.

Now we’ll turn our attention to that more illusive and controversial claim of “male enhancement” through pumping. We’ll begin this second experience with the goal of trying to add length and/or girth to our cock using a pump. In doing so we’ll try to get a handle on all the hype swirling around the whole notion of penis enlargement. And we’ll try to separate what is fact from what is fiction.

We already know that we need to use our penis pump carefully. Overuse or over-enthusiastic pumping can cause blood vessel damage, bruising, and blistering. If you have a pressure gauge on your device, always keep the pressure between -5 and –10 in Hg (mercury inches), never any more.

Last time we discovered that if everything is connected properly and we have an air-tight seal at the base of our dick, we’re able to see our hardon “grow” in length and girth inside the vacuum chamber. By maintaining a nice constant pressure we can feel the erotic pull of the suction while we enjoy the show.

But is our dick really growing? Is it actually gaining length and girth as the hype trumpets? Well yes, in a manner of speaking. The penis pump can temporally inflate our cock to its maximum size, by increasing the amount of blood and other fluids that flow into the corpus cavernosa and surrounding tissue. Increased blood flow into the corpora cavernosa (see Part 1) via pumping can increase the girth of our cock, but can only add a minimal increase to length. In other words, it’s easier to pump girth than it is to pump length. But alas, there is no reliable documentation of long lasting effects in either length or girth though pumping. A word to the wise, “male enhancement” can be had, so to speak, just as long as you don’t expect it to last forever.

I know, I know, I can hear all you avid pumpers out there proclaim;

Hey Dr Dick, my dick is considerably bigger than it was before I began my pumping regiment.

That may be true. All I’m sayin’ is there’s no scientific documentation of long lasting effects. Besides, can you honestly say that your “gains” will last? Or will they evaporate when you cease your pumping regiment, as others have discovered?

Everyone I know who has achieved significant gain in terms of both cock length and girth has done so by transforming their dick into a grotesque balloon lookin’ thing. Don’t believe me? Pictures of these disturbingly misshapen penises can be found online. The owners of these monstrosities, the pump-crazed crowd, pride themselves in their freaky creations. Their cock and balls only faintly resemble their original naturally-given package. And they’ve altered not just the dimensions of their cock and balls, but the skin texture as well. These men are also less likely to be able to get it up without a pump. But, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

Suspensory Ligaments

I want to call your attention to one thing about our anatomy that I haven’t yet talked about: the suspensory ligaments. These ligaments attach your dick to your pubic bone; holding it in place and close to your body. They also support your johnson when it’s erect. I bring this up now, because these ligaments can be stretched, which will cause a modest lengthening of one’s cock. And pumping as well as weighted pumping (as mentioned in Part 3) can cause this to happen.

As an aside, there is a surgical method of “male enhancement” that severs these ligaments allowing the root of a guy’s dick to drop forward and extend out, creating the illusion of a longer cock. But for the most part, the lengthening is just that, an illusion. A guy’s limp dick may appear longer, but the surgery cannot affect the length of his hardon. In fact, there is a real danger that, if the patient doesn’t scrupulously attend to a regiment of penis stretching exercises after surgery, the severed ligaments will actually heal shorter than they previously were and all “gains” will be lost. Sounds risky and expensive; and it is!

So we know that the more one pumps the greater the pumper’s cock will develop in terms of girth. This girth development will also slowly stretch the suspensory ligament and his dick will hang slightly lower. Does this mean he’s actually added length to his cock through pumping? Not really, not any more than the surgical technique mentioned above would do.

Ok, remember the ancient practice of jelqing I mentioned way back in Part 2? The Jelq involves massaging and stretching one’s semi-erect cock in a rhythmic and regular manner; enhancing blood flow within the shaft. The claim is that after several months of this, one can see a size increase; both in girth and length. As it turned out, this age-old method of gentle massaging and pulling is actually a manual means of stretching the suspensory ligament. Building on this technique, pumping buffs have devised a way to pump and stretch the suspensory ligament simultaneously! What clever lads!

Ball Pumping

Perhaps, this is as good a time as any for us to briefly divert our attention to ball pumping. It will have an impact on the whole “male enhancement” thing; as we will see in a minute. I mentioned in Part 1 that guys have been stretching their balls for just about as long as men have had balls…and that’s a mighty long time. A pair of big low hangin’ balls is the only thing that screams male virility and potency as much as a big dick. In fact, many societies throughout history considered a man’s nuts as sacred. They were revered as objects of religious, social, cultural, and even magical power.

When a man would take an oath in ancient Rome, he would grab his balls in the same way we put our hand on a bible today. In fact, that’s where we got the word “testify“, from the Latin: testis. Men discovered early on that ball stretching was erotic, fun, and relatively easy. Just to clarify: when I say “ball stretching”, I really mean sack (scrotum) stretching. One cannot increase the size of his actual balls (testicles). Soon men in many societies were stretching their junk to call attention to their manliness. Men were able to lengthen their balls with very little effort with the help of a stretching device, of which there are several varieties; weighted rings work real nicely.

Pumping buffs have known about ball pumping for decades. It didn’t take a great deal of ingenuity to figure that out, right? The ingenious discovery was that if one used a larger cylinder, the kind that would accommodate both one’s dick and balls at the same time, the pull at the base of one’s cock would be greater than just pumping the dick alone. Clearly, this would intensify the stretching of the suspensory ligament, causing more of a lengthening effect.

Male Enlargement

Here’s a tip: You can only swap out one size cylinder for another size if you have a more advanced penis pump.  These pumps have a more sophisticated coupling device that locks the male (hose) and female (cylinder) parts together; making a secure seal. This setup also allows the pumper to disconnect the hose and pump mechanism from the cylinder, leaving the airtight seal in place on one’s cock. This feature comes in handy if you choose to one day add weights to your pumping device, or if you want to use other attachments.

I am compelled to raise some very serious safety issues here. Every trustworthy pumping guide warns the user away from using a pressure greater than –10 in Hg (mercury inches). But some advocates of extreme pumping go on to say that adding weights to the cylinder will further stretch out the suspensory ligament. The problem is that one cannot add even a modest weight to the cylinder at –10 in Hg and expect the vacuum to hold. Therefore, without coming right out and saying so, these pumpers tacitly advocate pumping at greater pressures. I think this is really irresponsible and dangerous. So prospective pumpers BEWARE!

Pumping session checklist

In the previous posting we took a closer look at the mechanics of a penis pump. Every penis pump has basically the spunksame three features: a cylinder (or vacuum chamber), a pump mechanism attached to the cylinder to create the vacuum and a release valve to eliminate the vacuum.

Now, what do you say we take one of these babies out for a ride? In doing so we’ll pay attention to the proper and safe use of a pump. So why not drop your drawers and get comfy? We may be here for a while.

Here’s what you’ll need to have close at hand: your pump, some lube (I suggest water based lube, it makes clean up a whole lot easier.), your trusty cockring, and some towels for keeping your hands free of lube while operating the pump mechanism.

If you bought your pump as a kit, there’s a good chance the manufacturer included a cockring (or compression ring) in the package. Are you not sure you’d know a cockring from a hole in your head, or know how to use one even if you knew what a cockring was? Ok, here’s a quick tutorial.

Cockring

A cockring is simply a device worn around the base of your dick to help you maintain an erection. All you rocket scientists know that your erection is caused by blood flow, right? Since blood flows into your johnson through arteries deep inside your dick, and blood flows out of your dick through the veins nearer the surface of your tool, wearing a cockring can help to keep more blood inside your dick shaft for a longer period of time.

I recommend a flexible or adjustable cockring. These are generally made of stretchable rubber or leather. For the more daring among us, there are the rings of metal variety. While some of these look way cool, they are a bitch to put on and take off. They can also be dangerous if worn for too long a time.

Here’s how you put on a nonadjustable cockring.
1. Pull your ball sack through the ring first.
2. Follow this by popping each of your balls through the ring one at a time.
3. Now bend your cock down and pull it through the ring.
4. Pull the ring snug against your pubic bone at that base of your cock.

Here’s a tip: Put your cockring on before you have a full hardon, it will make the task easier. To take the cockring off, simply reverse these steps, pushing your flaccid cock back through the ring first, followed by each of your balls, and finally your ball sack.

If you use a cockring before you start pumping you’ll want to use one that is as inconspicuous as possible. Too big a ring will get in the way of you making that all important airtight seal at the base of your dick. Some pumping guides suggest that you put on the cockring after you’ve pumped to a full erection. But you’ll only be able to do that if you use a flexible or adjustable cockring for the reasons I mentioned above.

Since the general agreement is that a penis pump can be useful in helping a guy get an erection, let’s begin our first pumping exercise with this as our objective. We’ll leave the more controversial and illusive “enhancement” goal for later.

Preparation

Take a good look at your willie. If you’ve got a big bush down there or if there’s a lot of hair growing on your rod, you might want to consider doing some light trimming. Anything that will interfere with creating the airtight seal at the base of your dick is going to be a problem. If you do shave, wait a few hours after shaving before you get on with your pumping.

Grab your lube, but before you start slavering all over the place, get a feel for how your pump is going to work. Make sure you know where the release valve is and how it works. To test your pump, press the cylinder against the palm of your hand or your inner thigh, create an airtight seal. Then squeeze the pump mechanism (bulb, piston, plunger, or handgrip) to create the vacuum. You should feel a pull on your skin as the vacuum forms. Once you get the hang of it, press the release valve to eliminate the vacuum.

Ok, let’s try to relax. How about taking some nice deep breaths? The more relaxed and comfortable we are the better our pump session will be.

Start by lubing up your dick. Get a nice boner goin’. Slather the lube around the base of your dick too. Be generous in the application. Wipe off your hands and grab the cylinder. Make sure your pump mechanism is securely attached to the cylinder. If you have a pump with a stretchy rubber, or jelly-like doughnut seal at the base of the cylinder, you’re in luck. These will help create a tighter, more secure seal. Of course, this will also necessitate that you have a hard enough stiffy to push past the seal opening and into the cylinder.

Work some of that lube into the seal itself; either with your fingers or the tip of your dick. Keep wiping off your hands, because when it comes time to actually operate the pump mechanism you don’t want to get that important part of your device covered in lube. It will be too slippery to handle.

Now slip your hardon inside the cylinder. If you’ve lost a bit of your wood, don’t be too worried. Just as long as you can get your dick through the donut seal you’ll be fine. If you can’t get hard enough to do that, remove the seal and place your cock in the cylinder as is. You can always replace the seal later, once you’re good and hard.

Pumping Technique

Press the cylinder tightly against your pubic bone at the base of your cock. Grab the pump mechanism and give it a couple of squeezes. If you’ve got an airtight seal goin’, you will begin to feel a snugness and a pull. If you’re lucky enough to have a pressure gauge on your device, increase the pump till the gauge reads 5, or up to, but never more than 10. If you find that you need to keep pumping just to maintain the pressure, this means you’ve got a leak somewhere. Probably at the base of your cock, but it could also be the connection between the pump mechanism and the cylinder. Either way, you’ll have to resolve this before you continue.

If everything is going smoothly, you’ll be able to see your hardon “grow” (in length and girth) inside the chamber. How fun is that? There ought to be just enough suction for you to feel the pull and enjoy the show. Stay with your body; go slow and be gentle. It will take some time before you discover your body’s own unique response to pumping. Continue to monitor how the pumping session feels. If there’s any discomfort or pain, STOP immediately! Press the release valve to terminate the vacuum.

Your first few sessions should never exceed two 10 minute back-to-back sets with a break in between those sets for some cock massage. Remember, this first pumping exercise has the simple goal of helping you get wood. And you should have accomplished that by now. So let’s not get carried away.

If you’re in an altered state, because of drugs and/or alcohol you should not be pumping. If your body is desensitized you’ll be more likely to make errors in judgment. For example, pumping for too long, or pumping up too quickly. Both will lead to broken capillaries and bruising. Also, keeping the rim of the cylinder in place for too long time will cut into the delicate skin at the root of your dick. You can also cause damage to the ligaments surrounding your dick. So please, have your wits about you during your pump sessions.

Use that massage session in between your pumping sets to do some edging. Don’t know what edging is? Here’s the deal; edging is a way of masturbating where you stimulate your cock to the edge of an orgasm, then either slow or stop the stimulation in order to make things last. This method of delaying orgasm can be fun all by itself, or you can use it to build up a more powerful orgasm when you have one.

Once you’re finished with your pumping session it’s time for clean-up. Be sure to thoroughly wash your cock with soap and water; take a piss too. If you don’t get all that lube off, your skin will be come irritated and you’ll itch like crazy. I strongly advise that you keep your pump cylinder, hose, pump mechanism, and any inserts clean too. Lube build-up is never a good thing. Here’s a tip, the better polycarbonate cylinders and silicone inserts are dishwasher safe.

Composition of the Penis Pump

This is Part 2 of a 4-part series.  Part 1 is HERE

We learned in the previous posting that the penis pump was invented in early 20th century Europe as a “treatment” for impotence, or as we currently know it: erectile dysfunction. The device was simple, an airtight cylinder topped by a bulb that created a vacuum within the chamber. Insert a limp dick – pump, pump, pump and tada! – an impressive erection resulted.cockring

There was a problem, however. When the vacuum was eliminated and the cylinder removed the “faux-erection” drained away nearly as quickly as it arrived. It was only a matter of time until the inventor discovered that one needed to constrict the flow of blood back into the body once the cock was engorged. And so the earliest forms of the penis pump and modern cockring (or compression ring) were born at about the same time.

This is an important part of the story. Because successful pumping, either to treat ED or to work on that illusive endowment enhancement, will depend on the use of both pump and ring. But we’ll learn more about that in Part 4 of this guide.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, I think we’d better take a closer look at the mechanics of a penis pump. Every penis pump has basically the same three features: A cylinder (or vacuum chamber), a pump attached to the cylinder to create the vacuum, and a release valve to eliminate the vacuum. But that’s where the similarities end. There seems to be an endless array of pumps on the market. Prices range from around $25 to over $600. What accounts for the disparity, you might wonder? Well, any number of factors.

Cylinder

Let’s start with the three things each pump has in common. First, the cylinder: These babies come in numerous sizes and a variety of colors. Virtually all are made of transparent plastic; so you can see what’s happening to your unit while you’re working the pump. The more expensive ones are made of a strong polycarbonate material. The cheaper models are fashioned from a reasonably lesser grade of plastic. Consider for a moment what’s going to happen inside the cylinder. You’re going to insert your precious willie, form an air tight seal at the base of your dick, and using the pump, you’ll create a vacuum. Sounds simple enough? Well it is, except, if the cylinder is made of crappy plastic the vacuum will split or even shatter the plastic, rendering the pump useless. So lesson number one: When purchasing a pump, look for a thick plastic cylinder, one that will stand up to a vacuum.

Pump Mechanism

Second, the pump mechanism: This is attached to the cylinder and it is responsible for drawing the air out of the chamber to create the vacuum. Again, sounds simple enough, right? Wrong! For as many different kinds of cylinders there are out there, there’s an even more startling assortment of pump mechanisms. These range from the simple squeeze ball type of pump to the elaborate motorized pump mechanism. Scary, huh? As I mentioned above, the job of the pump is to create the vacuum in the chamber. A feeble pump won’t be able to do the job, and your pumping days will end even before they begin.

Some of the more elaborate pumps come with gauges, “goo-gas,” and whatnot. I guess they’re trying to sell us on how high tech they are. I’m all in favor of having a gauge to monitor the pressure building up in the chamber, but the more moving parts there are, the greater the likelihood that the blasted thing will spring a leak. So lesson number two: When purchasing a penis pump look for a durable but simply designed pump mechanism.

Release Valve

Third, the release valve: This is a small inconspicuous part of the pump, but it is a very vital part nonetheless. The release valve is most often located on the pump mechanism. Again, consider for a moment what’s about to happen when you use a penis pump; you will create a vacuum around your willie. If you’re a novice, or even if you’re an old hand at pumping, your best friend will be the release valve. This will help prevent you from injuring yourself through your inexperience or by overuse. So lesson number three: When purchasing a penis pump look for a release valve that is easy to locate, easy to use, but sturdy enough to last. Remember, you will be using the release valve with each use of the pump. If that puppy leaks or wears out, that’s the end of that.

Before we get to some of the bells and whistles offered by some penis pumps, there’s one more basic thing I want to call your attention to. If you’re lookin’ to buy a pump that will last, take note of how the pump apparatus connects to the vacuum cylinder. The more secure the connection, the stronger and more long-lasting the vacuum. Some of the pumps have a simple hose-to-cylinder connection; the plastic hose, or squeeze bulb device, attaches to the cylinder by forcing one piece of plastic (the hose) over another (the plastic connector). When the pump is new, the connection is tight. However, regular use and cleaning will take their toll. If you use lube with your pump, it could also compromise the connection by getting sucked up into the hose. And when the connection fails, you’ll not get the airtight seal you want… and need.

The more advanced penis pumps have a sophisticated coupling device that locks the male (hose) and female (cylinder) ends together making a secure seal. What’s so great about this setup is it allows the pumper to disconnect the hose and pump mechanism from the cylinder; leaving the airtight seal in place on your cock. This feature will come in handy if you choose to one day add weights to your pumping device, or if you want to use other attachments. But I am getting ahead of myself.

First Penis Enlargement Methods and Devices

This is Part 1 of a 4-part series

Here’s a startling statistic: Dr. Barry McCarthy, co-author of Male Sexual Awareness, found that two out of three men believe their dick is smaller than average. Isn’t that astonishing? How is that possible? I suppose given this culturally induced big dick bias, it’s no wonder why men of almost every historical age and society have been obsessed with disguising their shortcomings, or trying to develop a method to compensate for what they consider to be their inadequacy?

Around two thousand years ago, men of several tribes in Africa popularized the practice of hanging a weight from their cock. Actually, many historians believe the practice harkens back to ancient Egypt. The Pharaohs were known to stretch their cock and balls using weights to increase sexual pleasure. Lots of guys do this very thing today; for pleasure enrichment, not necessarily for endowment enhancement.

Hanging a weight from the end of your cock (and/or balls) will stretch the tissues that make up your shaft (and/or sack); it’s gravity at work. But this can be dangerous because this practice can diminish the circulation of oxygen-rich blood, which is essential for the upkeep of the smooth muscle tissue.

And this kind of tissue makes up about 90% of your cock. This technique essentially robs Peter to pay Paul, so to speak. What lengthening might be accomplished comes at the expense of your dick’s thickness. Just stands to reason, you have only so much cock to work with. If you pull on it, it may get longer, but it’ll also get thinner.

Several other cultures document stretching techniques. There’s the Tao Method of China, supposedly based on Taoist philosophy. This technique includes spiritual concentration, breathing exercises, as well as grasping and pulling on one’s dong. The Polynesians use a woven device, much like a “Chinese finger trap.” They stick their dick in one end of the tube and dangle a weight from the other end.

A modern variation of the age-old stretching techniques is the traction method. A guy puts his cock in a kind of noose and either straps his wiener to his leg, or hooks it up to a traction device; which looks way too much like a torture device for my tastes. The claim here is that constant stretching makes the cells in this area divide and multiply, thus increasing the tissue mass. There’s no arguing with the concept, people have been using this method for centuries as a means of adorning and customizing their bodies, particularly lips and ears. Consider the women of the Surma tribe in Ethiopia who wear lip plates. Their lower lip is pierced when they are young girls and stretched with ever-larger plates over time. But what they gain in beauty, they loose in sensitivity. The same thing is true of a guy’s cock. What he may gain in size he may loose in sensitivity. And that’s not a good thing.

The Jelq or Milking technique is an ancient method of penis enlargement practiced in the Middle East. Traditionally it was taught father to son when the kid reached adolescence. Wealthy families sent their boys to a “Mehbil,” a gym or health club where a highly-train attendant would perform the Jelq technique on the boy each day. As a result of these daily treatments the kid’s dick would develop to dimensions not otherwise attained without the method. Modern day advocates of this technique claim that milking also works on the fully developed adult penis, but I have my reservations. The Jelq involves massaging the semi-erect cock in a rhythmic and regular manner, enhancing blood flow within the shaft. The claim is that after several months of this, one could see a size increase, both in girth and length. Long-time practitioners claim gains of several inches in length are possible, but one can only imagine how many hours that might take over the course of a year or longer. Effective Jelqing demands an hour or more each day for exercises. I mean, who has that kind of free time on his hands? No wonder most men fail to complete their Jelqing programs.

Penis enlargement pills and patches proliferate on internet, but there is virtually no documented evidence that they work. All such products use herbal ingredients, like ginkgo biloba and yohimbe, which act as stimulants and vasodilators. The best one can claim is that some pills may enhance blood flow, which may, in some cases, cause an ever-so-slightly bigger woody. Once a program like this is started, it needs to be continued for as long as you want the effect to continue. Imagine how much that would cost; this stuff is expensive.

Finally, the early 20th century brings the advent of modern technology to the “treatment” of impotence, or as we currently know it: erectile dysfunction. Please note, all the devices and surgical interventions of the last 100 years were initially designed to treat ED. Only later did folks begin to use these interventions as male enhancement schemes. Take the Austrian inventor Otto Ledever for example. He reasoned that if a stiffy was all about blood flow then maybe he could come up with a device that would draw blood into a cock creating an erection where there wasn’t one before.

In 1917, our hero patented an airtight cylinder topped by a bulb that created a vacuum within the chamber. Insert a limp dick – pump, pump, pump and tada! An impressive erection resulted. There was a rub, however. When the vacuum was eliminated and the cylinder removed, the “faux-erection” drained away nearly as quickly as it arrived. It was only a matter of time till he discovered that ya gotta constrict the flow of blood back into the body once the unit was engorged. And that, my friends was the birth of the modern cock ring! Isn’t science amazing?

Hey Sex Fans!

If you’re a guy (or you know someone who is) and you have a butt hole (or the guy you know has one), I’ve got some swell news for YOU! I want to introduce you to three hands-free prostate and perineum massagers that have cum my way. I haven’t been this excited (literally and figuratively) about a line of adult products in a very long time.

Finally, someone got it right! The first thing I want to say about these Aneros products is they areb750.jpg designed and developed by folks who are as serious about prostate health as they are about prostate pleasure. Listen, I’m all in favor of toys that have no other purpose than to dispense a good dose of the jollies. But if a fella can pleasure himself AND do himself some good health-wise…all at the same time; well that just about beats the pants off diddlin’ just for fun.

Before we get down to actually landin’ these babies where the sun don’t shine; I have some general comments to make. Each Aneros product has a unique shape. And there’s a shape for every anal-pleasure experience level — from rank amateur to professional butt pirate.

They’re made of firm, durable, non-toxic plastic. They clean up in a jiffy. Warm water and a mild detergent do just fine. You can also sterilize them by dropping ‘em in boiling water for a couple of minutes. Hell, ya can even pop ‘em in the dishwasher too. What could be easier?

They have an ergonomic elegance about them. They actually remind me of a finely crafted medical device. No surprise there, I suppose; since each Aneros massager is the product of years of research and development. And just so you don’t think I’m pullin’ your leg — these are the only medically patented prostate massagers on the market.

Their Zen-like simplicity is a marvel in and of itself. There are no batteries to wear down, no wires to fumble with. These beauties works their magic in harmony with your body’s own movements. Just lifting or repositioning your leg, tensing your PC muscle, or rolling on your side will stimulate and invigorate your prostate and perineum in a slightly different way. It’s truly amazing. I discovered that if I did a few crunches while my Aneros massager was lodged within; what was previously a workout drudgery became a tingly delight.

Since I had three Aneros products to review, I decided to share the wealth, so to speak. I wanted to find three uninhibited men who were up for an afternoon of prostate pleasuring. I apparently know the right kind of guys, because the very first three fellas I invited jumped at the opportunity. And best of all, we covered the spectrum of anal play experience.

I told my visitors that we had one simple task — to agree or disagree with the Aneros claim that their stimulators increase one’s sexual performance and stamina, facilitate a stronger erection and enhance orgasmic pleasure. Before we set to work, however, I had to remind my friends that we gathered together and dropped our drawers purely in the name of science. So I insisted that they wipe those stupid grins off their faces right away! 😉

Kevin — single, straight, 25 — was the youngest and least experienced among us. (He’s never had more than a finger in his ass.) He chose the Aneros MGX as his challenge. Despite it’s modest girth, he was still a bit apprehensive.

Glenn — partnered, gay, 33 — was the most experienced among us. He’s pretty smug about his talented ass and proudly identifies himself as a power-bottom extraordinaire. Initially he scoffed at all three stimulators. “Shit, I could take all three of them at once!” He proclaimed. I handed him the Aneros Progasm, the largest stimulator of the bunch, and told him to park his famous ass and shut his pie hole for the time being.

Carlos — married, “mostly straight,” 46 — has experimented with a couple of anal toys and would like to do more. He wants to get his wife involved too. However, he’s been having some prostate problems lately, so he was unsure how helpful he’d be. He got the Aneros Helix.

We shared our initial reactions to each product — how they looked and felt in our hand. We talked about what our expectations were, if any. We took note of the different shapes and the configuration of the Perineum Tab and K-Tab on each.

  • I gotta tell ya, we all were stumped by the K-Tab reference. I actually had to go to the Aneros website for an explanation. “Kundalini or “K-Tab” is supposed to add sensations up and down your spine similar to the sensations you’re feeling through your prostate.” Ok, the “Kundalini” reference is way too esoteric for me. I realize this is some kind of tantric reference, but please! Basically the K-Tab hits below your tailbone or coccyx. Sheesh!

c771.jpgNow that my guests and I are all comfortable and naked; the fun begins in earnest. Kevin realizes that he’s gonna need lube to insert his MGX. (Actually everyone needs lube for ass play of any kind. But ya’ll know that already, huh?) Unfortunately, Kevin was using a dainty amount of lube right on his pucker. I guess he thought that was gonna do the trick. He was oh so wrong! Listen up; ya gotta lube the whole chute, don’t cha’ know.

Glenn leaned over with one of the Marksman water-based lube shooters that came with the Aneros stimulators. He showed Kevin how to pop the top, insert the shooter stem to deep-lube his hole. “Ahhh, much better!” Kevin proclaimed. On his side with his lower leg straight and his upper leg cocked to his stomach, he tired to insert the MGX. But failed. I think he was pretty nervous and there was a fair amount of performance anxiety goin’ on too. It didn’t help that, we his audience, were looking on with great anticipation.

Carlos reached over and held Kevin’s upper leg, so he wouldn’t have to tense to hold the position. Then he said; “relax and breathe deep.” Kevin’s next try was successful. As soon as the MGX slipped into place, with its head knockin’ on his prostate, Kevin’s eyes rolled back in his head and he let out a whimper. “Damn! Holy Shit!”

Kevin was a little nervous about lowering his leg, because that movement slightly altered the position of the MGX. Each time he moved, he got a jolt of pleasure. Finally, he was able to roll on to his back and lowered his leg. I told him to do some Kegel exercises. “Tighten your P.C. muscle (like you would if your were trying to stop the flow of pee) and hold that contraction for a slow count of 3. Then relax. Next, contract and relax your P.C. muscle as rapidly as you can — like a flutter.”

Kevin was oozing precum like there was no tomorrow. He had a rock-hard hardon. Ok, so he’s 25, all his boners are rock-hard. He did say, however, that he was afraid to touch his cock, because he thought he’d shoot his load for sure if he did. And he didn’t want to cum right away. He wanted to ride all these new sensations he was having.

Carlos was next. He popped the top and administered his Marksman lube shooter like a pro. His previous experience with ass toys insured an effortless insertion. Maybe because of his enlarged prostate, the Helix hit home with a bang…as it were, and it took his breath away.

Carlos admitted that the experience was right on the edge of being uncomfortable at first. I reminded him that the good people at Aneros suggest that everyone take his time to acquaint his butt with one of their stimulators. “Ya gotta be patient, darlin’!” I insisted. “Your body needs a chance to get familiar with its new friend.”

Carlos worked through the initial discomfort with deep breathing, Kegels and yankin’ on his balls to move the sexual energy around. He too had a powerful hardon and more than the usual amount of precum. This surprised him. Because of his enlarged prostate, Carlos found that he needed to take a break and remove the Helix every once in a while. This was fine with him, because reinserting it was so much fun.

While Carlos and Kevin were riding their stimulators, Glenn was preparing himself for disappointment. He was sure his Progasm was gonna be a bust. He put on a cockring, because he assumed he would need one. No “little” insertable was gonna challenge his pro-hole or give him wood either…or so he thought.

Glenn’s poop chute devoured the Progasm like it was a snack. It slipped into place with an audible pop. We all giggled like schoolgirls. Sure enough, the girth of the Progasm was like playing house for him. What Glenn didn’t count on was the P-Tab and the K-Tab. These little numbers made all the difference in the world. None of his other ass toys had anything like this.

When Glenn could finally admit that bigger isn’t always better, he realized the potential of the Progasm. As every power- bottom will tell you — the secret to enjoying a big toy and/or a ferocious fuck is pelvic muscle control. If you keep your muscles (including your PC muscle) in tip-top shape, a wealth of pleasure awaits you. If you go loose in the caboose…so to speak, you pay the price in pleasure and sphincter control.

While the Progasm didn’t come close to “filling him up,” it did hit the spot. The P-Tab and the K-Tab riveted the Progasm head to his prostate while adding the additional stimulation of his “taint” (perineum) and spine. This was all new territory for Glenn. He found that he had to work at tightening his PC muscle around the more modestly sized Progasm shank. This exercised his muscles more; delivering more pleasure.

Glenn had to remove his cockring because his wood was gettin’ too intense. “Ok, I’m a believer. This thing is pretty fuckin’ amazing! I’m sold, big time!”

Our afternoon session ended in an explosive manner. After only 20 minutes with his MGX, Kevin couldn’t stand it any longer and popped a wad that hurled well over his shoulder. We all cheered him on as he writhed in delicious agony. (Funny how pleasure and pain register as the same on one’s face.) He pulled the plug from his ass and fought to catch his breath. As his dick softened it continued to dribble spooge into a pool near his navel. “This thing rocks!”

Carlos decided to finish himself off without the Helix in place. He said he liked the butt play a lot; it just became too intense as he neared orgasm. He finally gave up his spunk in three waves of bliss. He was surprised at the amount of cum he produced. He figured it was the prostate massage that milked more cum out of him. However, he reported that his prostate was very tender after the orgasm. He though he needed to take more time with the Helix or maybe try the MGX next time.

Meanwhile, Glenn was edging — playing with his sexual tension as he jerked off. He would come right up to the point of ejaculating, and then he’d suddenly let go of his dick. Its hardness would slap against his belly. When the urge to cum subsided he’d start to handle himself again. He said he could usually delay his ejaculation for an hour doing this. Not today, though. The Progasm altered his edging performance and brought him closer to cuming more frequently, until he finally let fly. He said edging usually makes for a more intense orgasm, but this time, with the Progasm pluggin his happy hole, he felt several mini orgasmic quakes before the big one hit. “Like I said, I’m sold!”

As my guests lay spent on the floor, I asked them to rate their particular Aneros product, on a scale of 1-10 — 10 being the highest. Kevin gave his MGX a 10.0. He was gonna go online and buy his own just as soon as he got home. Glenn was happy to be proven wrong. He gave the Progasm a 8.5. He thought he’d probably buy his own, as well. He asked if he could borrow the MGX for his partner, who never bottoms, to try. Carlos rated the Helix at 9.0, but his experience at 8.0. Like he said, I need more time to work with one of these things on my sensitive prostate. He wanted to introduce his wife to the concept and asked if he could borrow the Helix for some homework.

As for me, I tried all three stimulators, I found the Helix fit me best. I sympathized with Carlos and the trouble he has with his enlarged prostate. I know the feeling. Lots of men our age and older are similarly troubled. However, I am discovering that a regular routine of Aneros prostate massage therapy is making a big difference. It’s assisting me in achieving better pelvic muscle tone and increasing oxygen-rich blood flow. This is reducing the size of my prostate and making my erections firmer. Firmer erections mean more sensitivity. And greater sensitivity means more pleasure. It’s a win-win situation all around.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fierce advocate for prostate self-awareness. At the risk of generalizing from my experience, I’d say there’s a very good chance that regular use of an Aneros stimulator will facilitate prostate health and vitality in most men. And a healthy prostate, increased blood flow and added muscle control are the kingpins of powerful orgasms, rejuvenated sexual ability, and stamina, as well as a stiffer cock. So, like I said; “if a fella can pleasure himself AND do himself some good health-wise…all at the same time; well that just about beat the pants off just diddlin’ just for fun.”

ENJOY!
