Hi Sulafa,

There is a saying - "If it sounds like it's too good to be true, it
probably is." This link pretty much says it all:

Watch Out For Unsolicited E-Mail: If It's Too Good To Be True, It's Probably A Scam
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2001171118_ptinbo19.html

Your friend probably thought the email you received is not scam
because the link is about a drug and/or when you search for "virility
pro" you'll get hundreds of websites in the result. The truth is, such
a "miracle pill" is a sham. Plain and simple logic will tell you that
if such medication is true and effective, almost all of us would be
using it and probably none will be left short -- well, you know what I
mean.

Here are the two questions you have in mind. Simply press the "Shift"

right-click on the link and choose "Open in New Window" to read the

The answers in the links above are all logically presented and more
than sufficient enough to answer your original question. Penis
enlargement pills are a scam. You won't find any FDA approved
medications that improve penis size. The advertisers make money by
making men feel they are inferior when they aren't. The penis is not
made up of muscles so no amount or type of exercise (or sexercise)
will permanently enlarge it except for surgery.

Now that we're done with logical reasoning, here are some links from a
reliable source of information about penis enlargement, the methods,
and the risks:

Thanks for the information, as i thought most are a scam's. Yet i know
someone who took pills and said that his penis DID get much larger
(dont know by how much) but when he got an eriction his penis was not
as hard as it used to be its much softer.

In the information you gave me it said unless someone did a surgery
nothing else works so i would like a clarification on how its possible
for my friends to get the results he did.

Thanks

"Yet i know someone who took pills and said that his penis DID get much larger"

From what you said it's clear that you just simply believe what the
person "said" without factual basis. Do you have documentation or
proof of the before and after effect? It's very easy to make a claim.
If you do, I suggest you have it scientifically reviewed and certified
because it will be a big news.

The info I gave you are well researched and solidly based on facts. If
you read the contents of the link I gave you about "INSIDE THE PENIS
PILL" you will see that none of the ingredients used have been shown
to do anything to increase penis size.

"...so i would like a clarification on how its possible for my friends
to get the results he did."

Without scientific proof, how can you be sure? Perhaps you should take
note of the quote below I took from one of the links I provided:

"Often the results are pooled from 'self-reports' and as this relies
on men being absolutely truthful about their penis size there may be a
bias towards exaggerate claims. What would you say if called to
measure yours? Would you round up the figure rather than down?"

Regarding the friend who claimed to have experienced enlargement of
his penis after taking the pills, you might want to consider that your
friend's mind may have been playing tricks on him. One's expectations
can definitely affect one's perceptions.

I had a friend who believed that a local hypnotist could increase her
breast size. This hypnotist held group sessions in which he planted
subliminal suggestions that would supposedly cause women's breast
tissue to expand. My friend paid this man over a thousand dollars for
twenty sessions. She was absolutely thrilled by the results. Problem
is, no one else could see any difference in the size of her breasts
after the "treatment." Her husband confided in me that he thought the
"cure" was entirely imaginary, but since the "problem" was imaginary,
too, that worked well.
