Male Virility Treatments
Penis problems can be a big issue, at least among the men who suffer from premature ejaculation and Erectile Dysfunction (ED). So, I wanted to try a few products to see if they worked. Of course, being penis challenged, I couldn’t try the products myself, so recruited my significant other to test them for me.
He tried two products:
First a bit of Background History
My S/O (Gladiator) has no trouble getting an erection and maintaining an erection during masturbation. He also does not experience premature ejaculation. However, he does have problems with maintaining stamina (and erections) during partner sex. Both Sta-Erect Prolonging Spray and System JO-Male Virility, should be products that help improve his longevity during sex and staying power, a predicament I think many men suffer from.
Sta-Erect Prolonging Spray contains benzocaine, which is a local anesthetic which is used as a topical pain reliever in many oral products like Anbesol for children and Blistex. It is also used in some condoms as well, to increase performance like Performa from Durex and TROJAN Extended Pleasure Condoms with Climax Control Lubricant.
Sta-Erect Prolonging Spray works by desensitizing the penis to, so a man can stay harder and last longer. To use, you simply spritz a quick squirt on the head of the penis and within 5-10 minutes it begins to work. I have heard of men using a dab of toothpaste on the head of their penis to do the same thing, but have never seen it applied in practice.
Does it work? Yes and no. Sta-Erect Prolonging Spray does desensitize the penis. However, you have to be careful about how much you use, as it could numb the penis completely, taking away all the pleasure, which would lead to loosing the erection. I have heard some men swear by this product, and others who found it numbed them too much.
Gladiator fell into the second group. The Sta-Erect Prolonging Spray numbed his penis too much and took away most of his pleasure, resulting in less staying power. While he may have been over-zealous in application, needless to say, he wasn’t too excited about continuing to be my guinea pig and try it again.
System JO-Male Virility
System JO-Male Virility are sexual enhancement pills designed to increase stimulate the sex drive and increase erections. I’m always a bit dubious about remedies of this kind, but do believe in the power of herbs and vitamins to increase health. System JO-Male Virility is 100% natural and contains ingredients such as Damiana and Gingko Biloba, which reportedly have aphrodisiac qualities.
“Damiana, or wild yam, has a traditional use as an aphrodisiac and chemical analysis shows that it contains chemicals that can increase sensitivity in the genitals. Damiana also has a reputation for inducing erotic dreams, when drunk at bedtime, although it has not been proven in clinical trials.”—Natural Sex Aphrodisiac at Health.Discovery.com
“Ginkgo is commonly used for age-related memory loss, but some have had success using it to treat sexual dysfunction; possibly by stimulating the release of nitric oxide, widening blood vessels of the genitals and erectile tissue. Ginkgo shouldn’t be taken with blood-thinning drugs or by people with heart disease.” .”—Natural Sex Aphrodisiac at Health.Discovery.com
Polygonum multiflorum root extract or Fo-ti Root: “Modern research indicates that this herb contains an alkaloid that has rejuvenating effects on the nerves, brain cells and endocrine glands. It stimulates a portion of the adrenal gland and helps to detoxify the body. Hair health, energy and sexual vigor are the products of this rejuvenation.”—Fo-ti Root on Homeherbs.co.uk
Much of the other ingredients such as Stinging Nettle also, reportedly have aphrodisiac qualities.
How does it work? Marketed as a Viagra alternative, t is designed to “improve hormonal chemistry and increase sexual function” as well as “stimulating the sex drive”, “increase blood flow” and “increase erections”. The bottle comes with 60 tables (one month’s supply) and you take two a day.
Gladiator reported that he was hornier than usual, and he is usually pretty horny, often masturbating several times a day (days off of course!). He did find also he had increased stamina and overall more vigor. His erections also did last longer. The only downside was having to remember to take the pills every day. But, if you rake other medication or vitamins on a daily basis, this shouldn’t be a problem.
