But the pills work, right?

I got some bad news, guys. It seems that if you're not already, uh, proportioned like a porn star, those e-mails you've been getting probably aren't going to help.
"For patients with psychological concern about the size of the penis -- particularly if it is normal size -- there is little point in offering them surgery because it makes no difference," said Nim Christopher, a urologist at St Peter's Andrology Center in London.
Well, at least the guy is honest about it. And did you catch the name of the hospital he works at? St. Peter's? Heh.

Anyway, now that we've established that I have the sense of humor of a twelve-year-old, let's get back to the article:
Christopher and his colleagues, who questioned 42 men who had the surgery, found the dissatisfaction rate was very high. Often the men requested another surgical procedure.
Yeah, whenever I'm dissatisfied with the way the surgery on my wedding tackle went, I immediately leap to the conclusion that I ought to have more surgery. Makes sense.
He added that spam e-mails advertising penis enlargement surgery were inaccurate and gave men unrealistic expectations.
Damn, if you can't trust spammers, who can you trust?
