Especially strechers are aggressively marketed because manufacturing costs are only about $20 in China and they sell to consumers from $150 up to almost $500. Don’t believe it? Check chinese websites/marketplaces like Alibaba for wholesale prices. A profit margin of up to 2500% is something even many drug lords are envious of, so the companies selling extenders build shiny websites, pay medical personnel for fake testimonials or raving reviews of these useless and dangerous devices.
Berkeley went frantic in its attempt to keep the chargeback ratio low. The company "double-dinged" on charges, splitting transactions into two parts (one for the product, one for shipping), billing each separately. By 2003, it was triple-dinging charges to make the volume of "good" transactions appear higher. If Berkeley thought its chargeback ratio was too poor in any given month, employees would bill Warshak's personal credit cards with a host of one-dollar transactions until his card limits were reached; Warshak would then be reimbursed by the company.

• This can be done by using a measurement tape to measure the penis circumference during an erection in the area that represents the midpoint of the penis length. If a measuirng tape is not available, use a piece of string. Place a knot near the end of the string. Wrap the string around the erect penis and hold the string adjacent to the knot. Place the string on a ruler by continuing to hold the string where first grasped and determine the length of the string from that grasping point to the knot. This will give you the circumference.
Something extraordinary was also taking place at Berkeley Nutraceuticals, the Cincinnati, Ohio, startup behind Enzyte. The company, founded by Steven Warshak, eventually sold 13 different herbal products with vaguely medical-sounding names like Rovicid (allegedly enhanced sex), Ogoplex (allegedly intensified orgasms), and Keflex (allegedly masked drug traces in urine), but it was Enzyte that became the corporate gold mine.
Richard, a mechanic from upstate New York, is a muscular, athletic guy. He has a loving wife who has always enjoyed their sex life. But ever since he was a young boy, Richard couldn't get over the feeling that his penis was too small. In public bathrooms, he'd use the handicapped stall. He felt embarrassed in gym locker rooms and when standing naked before his wife. "I didn't feel manly enough," he tells WebMD.
