Desire For A Mandingo; Do Them Penis Enlargements Actually Work?

If you, like many men out there, have been secretly rallying for an increase, you may be getting curious about whether or not these penis enlargement flyers and adverts selling dreams hold any truth to them. Dig in and find out!

If you’ve taken a walk down the Johannesburg CBD, you probably have endured and tallied a number of penis enlargement pamphlets being thrust in your face at every corner. Now we know that may sound a bit wrong, but we are hounded by adverts referring us to obscure specialists promising all sorts of tricks and herbs to enhance our manhood significantly.

The flyers are tip of the iceberg.

The fact that the words ‘penis enlargement’ return with almost 3 million results on Google is not only a tell tale sign that penis size is big business, but it also reveals that men are curious and most importantly – keen.

Now the big question – is there any truth to any of the claims? Certainly the languaging is quite seductive. We are told that pills and procedures will yield untold fortunes. “Make her squeal”, “Win your lover back”

Do They Work?

The short answer is NO. With a bit of digging around, we found some expert answers on why these pills, herbs, procedures, exercise and rituals will not blow you up in the sack.

But first, what constitutes a large penis and why do men desire one?

How do you know if your penis is too small?

Well, according to the Mayo Clinic, an average penis size ranges between 8 to 13 centimetres flaccid, 13 to 18 centimetres when erect. Medically speaking, a small penis is one that grows to be less than 8 centimetres when  erect, a condition called micropenis. In fact, it has been reported that most men that seek and pursue penis enlargement intervention actually have average penises.

Does Size Actually Matter?

It all goes back to the age old question, does the size of one man’s penis actually affect their ability to satisfy their partner sexually? The answer to that depends from person to person, but research has generally disproved this line of reasoning. No, you don’t have to be Mandingo down there bud…

Here’s How The Whole Erection Process Works

You probably reckon that you out of everyone would know how your own erection works better than anyone else – and you have a point-but here’s the medical explanation of how things materialise. According to Mens Health, the penis consists of spongy erectile bodies that get filled with blood when you are sexually aroused. The sad part, at least for those of you who rally for an increase, is that these fibrous cylinders and attached to the pelvic bone, rendering them unable to be played around with.

As such, your penis size is pretty much determined by puberty. All that a supplement claiming to increase penis size can do is  make those bodies fill at an accelerated speed which will delay your journey to climax. But really, that’s all.

So…

We can spend the whole day chatting about this back and forth but the bottom line is, they don’t work. But fortunately, you do not need to them. Not unless you are prepping for a porn flick audition, that is.

‘Pain Is Real But So Is Hope’- Lalla Hirayama Opens Up About Suffering With Panic Disorder & Depression

Published

on

Lalla Hirayama has battled with Anxiety, Panic Disorder as well as Depression. The media personality opened up about battling with the mental illness on her Twitter account, revealing that at some point, “suicide was a serious thought.”

As part of Mandela Day, she  volunteered her time helping out at the South African Depression and Anxiety Group.  The Lalla in Lalaland presenter shared some of her experiences with her followers, urging those who struggle with the mental disorder to move beyond the steep of social stigma and seek professional help.

SADAG MENTAL HEALTH LINE: 011 234 4837 

“Even if you don’t have money, (SADAG) is there to help”, she tweeted. “Pain is real but so is hope. No one is alone.”

Speaking against the stigma that keeps anxiety disorder suppressed in codes of shame and secrecy, which force those who are suffer from the mental illness to secretly suffer alone, Lalla says there’s no shame in seeking professional help to improve one’s mental health.

While anxiety disorder has standard symptoms, which we discuss below, different people are affected differently by the illness. Before being diagnosed, Lalla felt like she was ‘possessed’, and considered suicide.

SADAG SUICIDE CRISIS LINE: 0800 567 56 OR SMS 31393

However, she revealed that she has been seeking professional help. She says that calling in to the SADAG has helped her deal with disorder on so many occasions.

WHAT IS PANIC DISORDER? 

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America describes a panic attack as ‘the abrupt onset of intense fear or discomfort that reaches a peak within minutes and includes at least four of the following symptoms:

  • Palpitations, pounding heart, or accelerated heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Sensations of shortness of breath or smothering
  • Feelings of choking
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Nausea or abdominal distress
  • Feeling dizzy, unsteady, light-headed, or faint
  • Chills or heat sensations
  • Paresthesia (numbness or tingling sensations)
  • Derealisation (feelings of unreality) or depersonalisation (being detached from oneself)
  • Fear of losing control or “going crazy”
  • Fear of dying

Because these symptoms are very similar to those of heart related diseases, such as heart attacks, thyroid problems etc., they can easily be mistaken for them. That only makes the attacks that much more scary.

ANXIETY DISORDER

Everyone gets anxious about stuff from time. But people who suffer with generalised anxiety disorder worry unstoppably about common situations. People with this condition worry so much that feelings of stress and restlessness, while overwhelming, and sometimes paralysing, cannot be easily managed even when the person is aware that these thoughts are irrational. This uncontrollable and incessant worrying can affect someone’s wellbeing, personal relationships and professional life.

Healthline.com lists these symptoms

 

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue and exhaustion
  • Muscle tension
  • Repeated stomachaches or diarrhea
  • Wweaty palms
  • Shaking
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Neurological symptoms, such as numbness or tingling in different parts of the body

Controversial drug Nyaope enters the ‘legalise it’ convo

Legalise nyaope so that we can be able to control it – a professor from UP has suggested unapologetically. Read his explanation and join the debate

Published

on

A professor at the University of the University of Pretoria has taken up a very controversial stance by suggesting that nyaope be legalised, according to recent reports on TimesLIVE. But before you throw a stone, hear him out first – he is very educated after all.

Prof Jannie Hugo has worked a lot with homeless children affected the hardest by the highly addictive drug, and now believes that it is within the best interests of the fight against the scourge to shift the conversation from the criminal element of the drug to the actual problem

“Legalise the drug”, he said. “I’m not apologetic about it. I know there might be other effects but we work with nyaope-addicted children and I am telling you, it would be better if the thing was legal”.

As to exactly why he would take on this seemingly radical stance, Hugo explained that legalising implies the capacity and ability to control.

“We need to focus on controlling it but now the focus is on the crime part of it.”

The National health department has of course come forward to say, well, nope.

Does the professor have a point or is he out of line? Talk to us in the comments section below
