Mayo clinic: Stop it with the penis pumps and pills fellas

Anyone with an email address has probably received some form of “grow your penis” spam at some point — advertising a pill, a pump or a balm that purports to transform the under-endowed into owners of porn-worthy dongs in a matter of weeks. Some men, I like to call them dipsh-ts, actually believe, or want to believe, that these ridiculous measures work. But now, the Mayo clinic is thankfully, FINALLY, stepping up to say what most of us already know: you can’t take a pill to make your c*ck bigger.

Reports the Daily News:

Men with “short penis syndrome” often have perfectly average-sized genitalia but believe strongly that they are inadequate.

“Penile size is a matter of great interest among men who are affected by ‘short penis syndrome’ or just believe themselves to have a small penis, even though the dimensions of the organ fall within the normal range,” stated University of Turin urologists Marco Oderda and Paolo Gontero in British Journal of Urology International, where their work is published this month.

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic are warning men who are obsessed with the size of their penises to think twice before investing time and money into pills, pumps and procedures that are as likely to disappoint as they are to cause harm.

Jimmy Johnson begs to differ.
