Gas station male enhancement penis pills do they really work?

Remember the phrase, “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is?” Many of life’s early lessons were accompanied by this statement. So, does the same principle applies to those “Gas Station Erection Pills” aka enhancement pills? Men, you know exactly what I’m talking about - those eye-catching, ornately packaged capsules displayed at the point of purchase at the gas station, convenience store, or local bodega. Sorry to burst your bubble, but those pills won't do anything for male sexual enhancement.

What is in the gas station "natural" male erection dick pills?

You probably have seen them a thousand times at your local convenience stores. The male enhancement pills with names like Rhino 2500, PowerZen, Black Mamba, Super Panther, and Extenze. These products promise everything from the enhancement of penis size and width to providing explosive orgasms, better ejaculatory control, and rock-hard erections. One of the best-selling male enhancement pills, Rinozen Black Fire, even guarantees that one pill “lasts up to eleven days.” Increased sexual stamina for eleven straight days from a single dose. That’s absolutely incredible!

Unfortunately, it’s not amazing. It’s also not true and consumers need to be aware that these sexual enhancement products can be downright dangerous especially if you are taking other medications that control blood pressure. They are also not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many of the promises aren’t even close to accurate, but some actually are, and not for the reasons you may think.

Let’s take a look at the top five claims and see how they stack up.

1) They Make Your Penis Bigger And Increase Girth

Of all the claims, this is the most ridiculous one. Just think for a minute about how absurd this is. If there was a pill - any pill - that actually made your penis bigger, it would be given to men at birth. Your father would insist upon it, no matter what the cost. Just like a pill won’t make you taller, it also won’t increase the size of your penis. This myth has been debunked so many times. The world-renowned Mayo Clinic wrote all about its comprehensive findings here.

2) They Make Your Penis Harder

Actually, in many cases, this is true. Not because the Gas Station Erection Pills contain special herbal and all-natural components as they claim, but because they’re often laced with the active ingredients found in Viagra (sildenafil), Cialis (tadalafil), and other prescription erectile dysfunction medications. It's illegal. And it’s very dangerous. The FDA conducted the largest study to date of these Gas Station sexual enhancement products and found that they contained undisclosed levels of active erectile dysfunction prescriptions. These components, are not listed, may have dangerous side-effects, and can cause complications with other medications that can lead to death.

3) Gas Station Erection Pills Make Orgasms More Explosive

The male orgasm is a complex phenomenon and there are no herbal ingredients in common Gas Station Erection Pills that will enhance the climax experience. Medically speaking, the sexual climax occurs once sufficient intensity and duration of sexual stimulation surpass an ejaculatory “threshold.” The sexual climax consists of three phases: emission, ejaculation, and orgasm. When a certain threshold of sexual stimulation is surpassed, emission occurs, in which secretions from the prostate gland, seminal vesicles, epididymis, and vas deferens are deposited into the urethra within the prostate gland. During ejaculation the pelvic floor muscles contract rhythmically, sending wave-like contractions rippling down the urethra to forcibly propel the semen in a pulsating and explosive eruption. Orgasm is the intense emotional excitement that accompanies the physical act of ejaculation. Want to improve your orgasms?

4) Gas Station Erection Pills Delay Ejaculation

In some cases, this is true. Once again, not because they contain special herbal and "all-natural elements" as they claim, but because they are laced with the active ingredients found prescription drugs such as anti-depression medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors or (SSRIs). One of the main side-effects of SSRI’s is delayed ejaculation. However, these powerful anti-depression medications can be extremely dangerous if taken without a prescription or physicians’ guidance. This is illegal and yet another reason why you should steer clear of them at all costs.

5) Gas Station Erection Pills Are Really "All-Natural"

We have no idea. And nobody really does. The simple fact is that these pills are completely unregulated. While all supplements do not require FDA certification, these Gas Station Erection Pills are not even assembled in factories. The unlisted and unknown ingredients are typically produced overseas, shipped to the United States in bulk, and assembled by the gas station and convenience store owners themselves. Seriously? Yes, Vice News produced a shocking documentary on the production process.

When it comes to Gas Station Erection Pills, the claims don’t stand up. And when they do, it’s for all the wrong reasons. Save your money. Protect your health. Don’t be fooled!

So, what can you do to safely and naturally improve your sexual performance?

There are so many things you can do. Here are some of the most effective ones:

  • EXERCISE REGULARLY - Exercise improves sexual function by reducing stress, improving mood, preventing fatigue, and increasing energy. More importantly, it improves blood flow to the penis by strengthening your heart and vascular system.
  • STRENGTHEN YOUR PELVIC FLOOR MUSCLES - The pelvic floor muscles power your erections. When stimulated, these muscles activate and engage to maintain penile rigidity and a skyward angling erection. Unfortunately, they are weak, to begin with, and get weaker with age, resulting in premature ejaculation, soft erections, and ED. Strengthening your pelvic muscles is proven to improve sexual performance and create longer-lasting and harder erections.
  • MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT - Obesity crushes your manhood. It reduces testosterone levels in the body and destroys sexual performance. Fatty plaque deposits, which clog up your blood vessels, including the artery to the penis, make it harder to obtain and maintain a good-quality erection.
  • EAT SMART - Wholesome and natural foods prevent the build-up of harmful plaque deposits in your blood vessels that compromise blood flow to the penis. Calorie-laden and nutritionally-empty food choices clog arteries and greatly impact sexual function.
  • REDUCE STRESS - Stress causes the release of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Adrenaline narrows blood vessels, which negatively impact erections. If you ever have experienced “performance anxiety” it was because of adrenaline release in response to nervousness. Excessive cortisol secretion, which helps drives your appetite, causes the accumulation of bad belly fat.
  • DON'T DRINK TOO MUCH - In small amounts, alcohol can alleviate anxiety and act as a vasodilator (increasing blood flow) and can actually improve erectile function, but in large amounts, it can be a major risk factor for erectile dysfunction.
  • QUIT SMOKING - In addition to causing cancer, tobacco narrows your blood vessels, impairs blood flow, decreases the supply of oxygen, and also promotes inflammation, compromising every organ in your body.
  • STAY SEXUALLY ACTIVE - Use your penis! You can help keep it in good shape by using it regularly. Scientific studies have clearly demonstrated that men who are more sexually active tend to have fewer problems with erectile dysfunction as they age.

Why You Should Train for the Bedroom
