“I hate to say it, but I think Elist is wrong,” counters male sexuality educator Paul Nelson, who wonders if Elist is confused with penis pumps, because Nelson says gains with penile extenders are absolutely permanent. There may be some retraction if you’re using it every day and suddenly stop, but most of it, he promises you’ll retain.

Whatever. I don’t understand the penis-insecurity but I am going to do my best to rid this world of penis insecurities, one cock at a time.
