Q. I read about some herbal pills on the market that are supposed to increase the length and girth of the penis. I wonder if there is really anything to that. They offer a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the results. The testimonials sent in by customers are convincing. They can’t be made up, can they?
A. Testimonials and money-back guarantees are no proof of safety or efficacy. They have been used in advertising for decades, but manufacturers know very few dissatisfied customers are likely to demand their money back.
We have not seen any well-controlled scientific research to indicate that oral preparations can make the penis significantly larger. This market is ripe for exploitation, however.
One Arizona company selling such products on the Internet was investigated last year. Local authorities seized $20 million along with a Lamborghini, a Ferrari and a Rolls Royce. The same company also allegedly sold products to enlarge women’s breasts and make people taller.
