• Forget surgery. The full monty, lengthening and girth enhancement, is expensive (around $15,000) and problematic. Lengthening surgery cuts the ligament that makes an erection stand up. This adds an inch, but erections no longer salute. They just hang between your legs and must be manually directed into erotic openings. Girth enhancement takes fat from the buttocks and injects it under the penis skin. Sounds good, but quite often, the result is a lumpy, deformed-looking penis.
The Stored Communications Act (SCA) covers situations like this one in which user data is held by a third-party service like NuVox or Google or Yahoo and is stored on that company's servers, and it makes that data fairly simple to get. Full warrants are often not required, in part because such surveillance is "retrospective;" the government gets access only to messages already stored on the server by a suspect. Even the name of the act makes this distinction clear—it was meant to cover "stored" material.
A three-judge panel of Sixth Circuit appellate judges took up the question in a lengthy opinion handed down on December 14, 2010. To address the Fourth Amendment issue, the judges first had to decide if taking the e-mails from NuVox constituted a "search" at all—with "search" in this case defined as the government infringing upon "an expectation of privacy" that "society is prepared to consider reasonable."
Brandon Bartling, store manager of The Pleasure Chest, an erotic store located in New York City's West Village, understands this as well. His store carries any number of products that cater to this manly desire, everything from dietary supplements to a “penis extender, which is a sleeve that you literally wear over your penis to increase length and girth. Kind of like a thick, firm condom in a phallus shape,” he told Medical Daily in an email. He added his customers tell him that “the Blue Wolf pills work the best to help boost one’s ability to obtain firmer, longer lasting erections, while others swear by the Bathmates line of Hydromax and Hercules pumps.”
Try ginseng. Korean red ginseng is said to give the nervous system a boost through ginsenosides, a natural component of the plant. While there is no conclusive scientific evidence that ginseng causes the penis to get bigger, men who took ginseng extract tablets as part of a study in South Korea experienced better sexual function after taking the supplements for several weeks.
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.
