Berkeley became an entrepreneurial success story and a major Cincinnati employer. Smilin' Bob's grin grew so big it looked as though it was about to split his face in two, but the grin hid a secret. Though Berkeley bragged in ads that Enzyte had a 96% customer-satisfaction rate, huge numbers of customers had actually complained. The complaints grew loud enough that the head of the Better Business Bureau wrote a letter to Warshak in mid-2004 to announce "serious concerns about the number of complaints" it had received.
Penis-lengthening surgery is also an option for men, but it is a highly controversial procedure. The American Urological Association says a common form of lengthening surgery (involving cutting the suspensory ligament of the penis) has not been shown to be safe or effective. The group also refuses to endorse surgeries that inject fat cells in the penis with the goal of increasing penile girth.
The Fourth Amendment to the US constitution wasn't written with e-mail in mind. It protects "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures" and says that this security "shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause." Read literally, this applies much more obviously to tangible items than to electrical signals on a wire.
All this might be leading to more than simple image anxiety; some have pointed to a new mental-health issue they term penile dysmorphic disorder. “It is a minority of men – and we don’t know how many – but it certainly exists and it’s as damaging as any other body dysmorphia,” says Professor David Veale, of King’s College London, an authority on health anxieties. “These men might seek out surgery, and for a few months they will be happy with the results. But then the same anxieties reappear. So, they seek out further surgery. It becomes a circle. But you cannot keep making your penis bigger. This requires therapy.”
Many manufacturers market the products as dietary supplements because the products contain natural ingredients, including vitamins and minerals. When shopping for male enhancement products, read the label carefully. You might find that the product contains the same ingredients as those found in a multivitamin. You should also look at what the product does because not all supplements promise the same thing. Some shoppers want a male enhancement supplement that increases stamina, but some men want a product that only contains natural ingredients.
