One Stockport-based surgeon, Ravi Kant Agarwal, was struck off (though later allowed to practise again) after botching two procedures. One of his patients, the General Medical Council heard, was left with a penis “bent like a boomerang”. Agarwal was criticised for failing to explain potential complications and misleading patients about the possible outcome, as well as for not having anaesthetic backup during the operations.

Whatever the intellectual oddities of this position, seizing e-mail from Internet servers quickly became a practical boon for investigators. "Even just five years ago, if the government wanted to get access to potentially incriminating evidence from the home computers of ten different suspects, investigators had to convince a judge that they had probable cause in order to obtain a search warrant for each person," wrote security researcher Chris Soghoian in a 2009 paper. "The investigating agency would then send agents to raid the homes of the individuals, remove the computers, and later perform labor-intensive forensic analysis in order to get the files."

“There’s no legitimate way to do it,” Danoff said, explaining that, unlike the breasts or the nose, the penis is not a static organ, it needs to move, and “there’s not a grafting material that’s suitable for that.” While there is one procedure that involves cutting the suspensory ligament, this only gives “an illusion of length,” he said. It doesn't actually extend it.

Those who do not like the idea of taking a tablet every day can take liquid supplements. Liquid supplements contain the same ingredients found in the tablets. Instead of taking a single capsule every day, you simply drink a small amount of the liquid. Nutritional supplements come in several flavors, including a traditional flavor and a citrus flavor. You can drink the male enhancement liquid straight from the bottle, but some men prefer mixing the liquid supplement with water or another drink. The liquid products have the same benefits as the tablets and capsules.
