Male sexual enhancement product distributer goes to jail for fraud

According to Law.com, Steve Warshak – the founder of a company that sells supposed "male sexual enhancement products" (and other supposedly herbal supplements) has been sentenced to prison for 25 years. Family members involved in the case face penalties, too. As you may remember me discussing in previous posts, there are few very medical options available for male sexual health issues. The most well-known are, of course, related to erectile function (e.g., Vigra, Cialis, Levitra) and are sold by established pharmaceutical companies. Penis enlargement pills don’t have science to back up their claims – at least as far as I have ever seen. Companies that promise male sexual enhancement prey on men who feel insecure about their sexual performance – which is quite a lot of men, given the pressures that our culture places on men to have strong erections whenever (and wherever) they want them and to last "long enough". You can read the full article about the case on Law.com.
