Penile Enlargement
    #2279933 - 01/28/04 07:58 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

According to one manufacturer (Extenz), they have sold 250,000,000 capsules. As there are 3 or 4 competitors that number might be approaching 500,000,000 capsules of penile extending herbal formula sold.

Of course listening to a skeptic investigator would have told these gullible souls that the male anatomy is pre-determined by genetics and can only be altered surgically. Certain supplements might make one "hornier", but never larger. So how do they do it?

1. Propose a solution to an imaginary "problem".


2. Offer a money-back guarantee. This has 3 built-in protections:

a. If you cannot get your money back, will you incur thousands of dollars in legal fees for $60 (or whatever the going price is)?

b. Placebo effect: maybe you noticed a slight increase because you hoped for it.

c. You are too lazy to try to get your money back - not worth the effort.


3. Many anecdotal stories about how it worked for "others" that keep you hoping.


What does this have to do with S&P? It has to do with belief and anecdotal evidence. The scientific evidence is nil yet the general populace keeps buying.

Note: I am sending the damned things back!  :eyemouth:

I think fear has a lot to do with marketing. I see how this is related to S&P in the sense that people will believe what they want to believe. I guess the only truth is personal truth. I guess the money back guarentee would be that even if ya don't believe in Christ or whomever as long as you fake it you've got your golden ticket to heaven so you got nothing to lose. As Well of course all the spiritual gurus would be the "others" that "it" has worked for and we take testimonials from. As far as providing a solution to some sort of problem I'd say enlightenment, peace of mind or enternal happiness is a pretty big carrot to dangle in front of us.

Wow...people are stupid. But on the bright side, I guess that just goes to show you what your head can do for you...... -suspense music-. :grin:
No, not that head either. :wink:

Well okay, that head too.

Marketing is all about making people discontent with what they have. One who is content doesn't have the urge to buy more stuff.

Oh yeah, and Swami, the male porn actors aren't representative of the average penile length.

You're forgetting the sexy actresses. Remind people that they like sex, and you're likely to sell your product, especially if your product is related to having sex.

But there ain't nothing wrong with sexy ladies, just their exploitation... err, for profit that is :wink:

Those enzyte commercials are the worst...


"This is Bob, his game of golf has benefited from a new surge of confidence since he called enzyte. Now that his dick is 10 inches, he got a promotion at work, he finishes 18 holes 14 stokes under par, and now he dates a trophy woman. If your penis is on the small side, you are a skeletal wreck of man and their all going to laugh at you."

I cannot believe that marketing campaign. I understand why men can be insecure, because their are millions of small penis jokes in pop culture, but it is disgusting that a company is profiting off of those insecurities.

I know. WE should be profiting off of other's insecurities. Let's come up with a shroomery penile lengthener and ALL share in the $$$.

I'll chip for that investment. If I all I have to do is invest some cash, and I'm guaranteed a huge return, I'm willing to sacrifice my morals and exploit the insecurities of brainwashed innocent for profit.

ACtually I've changed my mind. You're not getting a dime from me.

I think we should have penis icons beside our avatars. They should grow with our post count and positive feedback.
