NSFW kinda- Women (and men who sleep with men) Have you ever known a guy who had a noticeably successful experience with enhancement products?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14061 points ) August 21st, 2012

Occasionally, I watch TV. And sometimes, I go onto the interwebs.

I notice there exist many, many products, and accompanying testimonials, which promise exceptional changes to a man’s anatomy if they take certain pills or purchase certain products.

I do not trust men to answer, due to the potential for self delusion.

Have you ever noticed an improvement?

I have never been with a guy that has used any “enhancing” products, but, from what I know, “short” of a penile implant the rest is all snake oil. Just like womens breasts. Unless you have augmentation surgery, implants or a lift, pills and herbs and potions are all gimmicks that the insecure and naive fall for IMO.

Speaking as a gay man, I’ve known men who fell for the advertisements, and they all regretted it. The pills never worked.

Yes.
I’m not saying that I recommend them, and I’m not saying that they work, but a man that I was with for a very long time started taking these supplements secretly. I didn’t know that he was taking them, but I noticed a significant and seemingly unexplained difference in the bedroom. It wasn’t until a little while later that I came across an empty pack of the supplements that I put two and two together. At the time, I thought that he felt and looked larger, and his erections were firmer (not that he’d ever had issues with erections before, it was just different.) After I told him that I was worried about the safety of the pills, and that I felt you shouldn’t “fix something that isn’t broken,” he stopped taking them. The mysterious effects faded and never came back.

I’ve only ever read negative experiences with these types of supplements, it seems to be widely agreed upon that they don’t work… but my personal experience was about as unbiased as possible, and they appeared to make a noticeable difference. Maybe it was a placebo effect? Boost in confidence? I don’t know. But, that’s my story.

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought yep, true story. I’m pretty skeptical by nature, I would never just believe that they work (notice that I still don’t know if I believe that they work), but that experience forced me to consider it. I really do suspect it may have been a confidence/placebo thing… but it was really different. I definitely noticed, long before I knew about the supplements.

I suspect the placebo effect is particularly powerful due to the connection between psychology and male physiology. Anxiety and stress can physically inhibit performance.
