Convicted forger A. Schiller was serving his time in Sing Sing prison in the late 1800s when guards found him dead in his cell.
On his body they found seven regular straight pins whose heads measured the typical 47/1000ths of an inch or 1.17 millimeters in diameter.
Under 500 magnification it was found that the tiny etchings seen on the heads of the pins were the words to The Lord's Prayer, which is 65 words and 254 letters long.
Of the seven pins, six were silver and one was gold - the gold pin's prayer was flawless and a true masterpiece.
Schiller had spent the last 25 years of his life creating the pins, using a tool too small to be seen by the naked eye. It is estimated that it took 1,863 sepatate carving strokes to make it. Schiller went blind because of his artwork.
Although you’re not likely to get a trick for giving a bad treat these days, that sad and disappointed look on a child’s face is quite enough to make you regret giving anything but excellent Halloween handouts. They’re all bubbly when they get to your door, and then you had to go and ruin it with some healthy food, right? You’re such awful person! How dare you think of the child’s wellbeing?
Well, Halloween isn’t about being healthy. It’s about candy – and lots of it! It’s like Christmas except earlier in the year, with fewer presents but more costumes. In any case, don’t worry too much. Their parents will moderate their candy intake. Trust me, the last thing any parent truly wants is a bunch of kids hopped up on candy for an entire day. Worst case scenario they’ll dose ‘em up and send them to grandma’s house (but I digress).
Halloween No-No Number One – Mary Janes
Yeah, we bet you didn’t know those weird orange peanut butter and molasses things even had a name, but they do: They’re called Mary Janes, and they’ve been grossing kids out for nearly 100 years. Although 100 years ago most things kind of sucked anyway, so maybe these were considered good back then. That might explain why it’s mainly really old people that give them out.
Halloween No-No Number Two – Huge Lollipops
Not only do they take up a lot of room in that tiny little bin (which would be much better occupied by Three Musketeers bars, might I add), these surprisingly bland juggernauts of the candy family are something only an army of ants could love. Not to mention they contain enough sugar to put most kids into a coma if eaten in one sitting (or at least give them extremely sore tongue muscles).
Halloween No-No Number Three – Black Licorice
Black licorice is definitely an acquired taste – and being acquired implies one has lived long enough to remember at least 2 or 3 presidential elections. Most adults don’t even like black licorice (just like many don’t participate in presidential elections), so it’s best just to avoid black licorice altogether. Trust me, it won’t get many votes.
Halloween No-No Number Four – Candy Corn
Candy corn is the fruit cake of Halloween – you either love it or hate it, and there always seems to be a never-ending supply of it. There’s plenty of candy corn to go around as it is, and if their kids love it, trust me there’s already a big bucket of the stuff at home. Giving out candy corn on Halloween is like giving milk to a dairy farmer – either they’ve got plenty of it and have no need for more, or they make cheese and don’t even need it at all.
Halloween No-No Number Five – Healthy Food
Unless the town you live in is full of hippies, apples and bananas just aren’t going to fly. Not only are they heavy, but parents will usually throw them out – or at least they will if they’re smart. Who knows what you did to that seemingly innocent fruit? When it comes right down to it, it’s a gift from a stranger, and since it isn’t packaged, it isn’t safe – or even wanted. And giving out toothbrushes or dental floss is just asking for a kick in the ass.
The best idea is to have a lot of the “safe stuff” with a few “strange” options and ask if they have any special requests. Who knows – maybe you will make a new black licorice loving health food fanatic friend. Stranger things have happened (although, I should probably be more careful with that saying… it is Halloween, after all).
And that is one of the issues with getting ideas out of books in which fantasy creatures live, undetected, among the rest of us. The point is that they are mostly indistinguishable from your everyday, run of the mill, “folks.” These characters can make for a trendy bit of pop literature, but they don’t offer much in the realm of creative and distinct costuming.
If you’re interested in getting good costume ideas out of books, though, there are plenty to be had. Here are 15 books that offer great costume ideas:
1. Dracula: Now here’s a vampire you can identify. The widow’s peak. The long cloak. The fangs. Bram Stoker’s “mystery story” remains one of his most famous works, and a true classic, even today.
2. Frankenstein: This is another classic monster tale that provides ample opportunity for you to create a distinctive and recognizable costume. Dressing up as Mary Shelley’s hideous Frankenstein’s monster, or Dr. Frankenstein himself, are very real options. And everyone knows who these characters are. No need to explain why your skin is green and you have bolts sticking out of your neck…
3. Harry Potter: This series of books for pre-teens and teens is a no-brainer. There are a ton of great costume ideas throughout the series. From individual wizards, like Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Bellatrix Lestrange, Lord Voldemort and Professor Dumbledore (all of which are described with specific and distinguishable features), to creatures such as house elves, goblins and giants, there are a number of great costume ideas.
You can wear school robes or don Quidditch gear. For those who enjoy props, wands and broomsticks can be used to enhance the costumes. The ideas are endless when it comes to Harry Potter. Of course, you do have to deal with the fact that there are likely to be plenty of others with Harry Potter costumes running around. You will be far from unique.
4. Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit: These beloved fantasy novels provide the fodder for a host of recognizable creatures. J.R.R. Tolkien offers descriptions of elves and dwarves (he even offers his own spellings), and of hobbits and men. Characters such as Sauron and Gollum, as well as Frodo, Legolas and Gimli are possible to recreate, and do so in a way that is distinguishable. The popularity of the Lord of the Rings movies creates a visual that you can use as a touchstone. And if you’re feeling really spendy, you can get accessories (jewelry, weaponry, armor) that looks like what was used in the movies.
5. The Chronicles of Narnia: Most fantasy sagas are a veritable gold mine of costume ideas, and The Chronicles of Narnia is no exception. You can dress in armor and fancy clothes, and carry identifying accessories as one of the main characters, or you can dress up as one of the fantastical creatures C.S. Lewis uses in the series. And I don’t mean Aslan, the talking lion, either. There are mermaids, fauns, satyrs and centaurs galore in Chronicles. (You can learn how to construct a centaur costume on deviantART.)
6. The Egypt Game: If you are into something a little last fantastical, you can consider The Egypt Game. This Newbery Honor winner provides costume ideas out of ancient Egypt. From Nefertiti to the cat goddess Bastet to bird-headed Thoth, you can get some pretty far-out costume ideas rooted in mythology. Author Zipha Keatley Snyder also wrote The Gypsy Game andThe Headless Cupid, in case you were looking for more costume ideas.
7. The Wizard of Oz: This is another classic full of costume ideas. Many people have enjoyed portraying Glinda (the good witch), the Wicked Witch of the West, the Tin Man and other characters from L. Frank Baum’s well-known classic. The characters are often easy to dress up as, yet still distinctive and recognizable (ruby slippers, anyone?). You can even put on a little hat and find some wings and be one of the flying monkeys.
8. Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass: Charles Dodgson wrote his books about Alice and her strange adventures under the pen-name Lewis Carroll. These books offer interesting costume possibilities, from the Queen of Hearts, to the White Rabbit, to the Mad Hatter, to the Cheshire Cat to Alice herself. Twins can be Tweedle-Dee and Tweedle-Dum. Like many other fairy stories, the characters in the Alice adventures have their own distinguishing props.
9. The Indian in the Cupboard: If you’re more into Western themes, this book offers some interesting possibilities. A Native American and a cowboy are each represented, and there is a World War I medic as well. Lynne Reid Banks’ book is a classic tale with sequels that offer other ideas from nurses to soldiers to colonists.
10. Johnny Tremain: Esther Forbes offers an interesting historical novel that follows the life of one boy in the years immediately leading up to the Revolutionary War. Historical figures like Paul Revere populate this tale, walking amongst fictional characters.
11. The Three Musketeers: This swash-buckling classic from Alexandre Dumas provides a number of period costume ideas. Dress as a musketeer with the distinctive costume. You can be Cardinal Richelieu if you like. Or, if you like, dress up as the king and queen of France. Dumas also wrote other related books, Twenty Years Later and The Man in the Iron Mask, which have other interesting opportunities for costumes.
12. Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Clearly, the plays offered by William Shakespeare provide a wealth of costume possibilities. Simple costumes, from Hamlet’s unrelieved black, to the more complex costume ideas available in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, all give one a classicism that is undeniable. There are couple costumes for those who like to match each other (”Romeo and Juliet”, Rosalind and Orlando from “As You Like It” — which offers interesting possibilities since Rosalind cross-dresses as a man).
13. Winnie the Pooh: A.A. Milne’s beloved characters offer great costume ideas. Winnie the Pooh is a fun costume idea for very young children, and adults can enjoy dressing up in these costumers as well. A number of characters are recognizable, although it might be difficult in some cases to create costumes that look like animals.
14. The Cat in the Hat: Dr. Seuss is always an interesting subject for crazy costumes. Another book for children, The Cat in the Hat offers whimsical costumes for all ages. Other Dr. Seuss books provide equally recognized characters.
15. The Bible: This is one of the most recognized pieces of literature. If you are looking for character costume ideas, The Bible is a great place to go — especially if you want to add a little Christian sensibility to Halloween. Clearly, for the devout, dressing up as Jesus may not be the best option. But there are a number of characters — Eve, Moses, Joseph, Jezebel, and more besides — that can be portrayed through costume and with props. If The Bible isn’t your thing, there are plenty of characters in religious texts from other world religions.
Halloween is one of the most exciting and captivating holidays celebrated by both the young and old. Every year we break out the costumes and the spooky decorations in October. We carve our pumpkins, we buy the candy. But how much about this frighteningly fun holiday do we really know? There are many fun and interesting facts about Halloween that many people are not aware of.
Enjoy these terrifyingly true trivia facts and impress your friends with your extensive Halloween knowledge. We cover everything interesting about Halloween from history facts to Halloween around the world. Keep reading for 32 of the most bizarre Halloween facts we could find!
1. The history of Halloween began in ancient times with the Celts living on the British Isles. The Pagan calendar had October 31st as the last day of the year called Samhain. Celtic priests honored their god of death, known as Samhain, on the night of the 31st. The Celtic people believed that the spirits of the dead rose on that night and so they wore costumes to scare them away.
2. After the rise of Christianity the first day of November was known as All Saints Day which was originally called All Hallows Day. That made October 31st All Hallows Eve. That is how Halloween got its name.
3. It is believed that the Irish began the tradition of Trick or Treating. In preparation for All Hallow’s Eve, Irish townsfolk would visit neighbors and ask for contributions of food for a feast in the town.
4. After the Roman Empire gained control of the British Isles, Samhain also became a harvest festival honoring Pomona, the goddess of fruit trees. Bobbing for apples is thought to have originated from this harvest festival.
5. Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance, and tell fortunes. By the second half of the nineteenth century there was in influx of immigrants (particularly the millions of Irish fleeing the potato famine in Ireland) who helped popularize Halloween and make it the holiday it is today.
6. In the United States the first citywide Halloween celebration was held in Anoka, Minnesota in 1921. It is believed that the reason the townspeople decided to put on this celebration was to divert its youngsters from committing Halloween pranks. Anoka is now known as “The Halloween Capital of the World”.
7. The earliest known use of the words “Trick or Treat” did not occur until 1934, when a Portland, Oregon newspaper ran an article about how Halloween pranks kept local police officers on their toes. There would be sporadic instances of the phrase “Trick or Treat” used in the media during the 1930s. But the practice we see today, children dressed in costume, going house to house saying “Trick or Treat” did not really come about until the mid 1940s.
The Scoop on Pumpkins
8. A pumpkin is a berry in the cucurbitaceae family, which also includes melons, squash, cucumbers, and gourds. All of these plants are native to the Americas.
9. Pumpkins are 90% water and generally weigh between 15 and 30lbs. They are rich in vitamin A, beta-carotene, and potassium and their seeds provide iron and protein. Pumpkins also come in white, blue, grey, and green. Great for carving unique jack o
10. Jack o lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candles in hollowed-out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts. When they immigrated here they found that turnips were not as plentiful so they used pumpkins instead. Today, 99% of America’s pumpkins are used for Jack-o-lanterns.
11. Pumpkins originated in Central America. When Europeans arrived in the New World, they found that this plentiful food was often used in cooking by Native Americans. They took pumpkin seeds back to Europe where they quickly became very popular.
12. Growing giant pumpkins is a big time hobby with big time rewards. Top prize money for the biggest giant pumpkin can be as much as $25,000 at fall festivals. A new Guinness world record was set October 1, 2005 for the biggest pumpkin. This giant pumpkin weighed 1,469 lbs. and was grown by Larry Checkon of North Cambria, PA. Checkon’s pumpkin outweighed the 2004 winner by about 23 lbs.
Halloween Around the World
13. In Mexico, Halloween is called “Dia De Los Muertos” which means “Day of the Dead” in English. It is a joyous and happy holiday, a time to remember friends and family who have died. Mexicans have a 3 day celebration beginning on October 31st and ending on All Soul’s Day.
14. In Austria, some people will leave bread, water and a lighted lamp on the table before going to bed on Halloween night. The reason for this is because it was once believed such items would welcome the dead souls back to earth on a night which for the Austrians was considered to be full of strong cosmic energies.
15. In Czechoslovakia, chairs are placed by the fireside on Halloween night. There is one chair for each living family member and one for each family member’s spirit.
16. The Halloween celebration in Hong Kong is known as “Yue Lan” which translates to Festival of the Hungry Ghosts. This is a time when it is believed that spirits roam the world for twenty-four hours. Some people burn pictures of fruit or money at this time, believing these images would reach the spirit world and bring comfort to the ghosts.
17. In Belgium, on Halloween night the custom is to light candles in memory of dead loved ones.
18. In Germany, the people put away their knives on Halloween night. The reason for this is because they do not want to risk harm to the returning spirits.
19. In China, the Halloween festival is known as Teng Chieh. Food and water are placed in front of photographs of family members who have departed while bonfires and lanterns are lit in order to light the paths of the spirits as they travel the earth on Halloween night.

Zits. The mere mention of the word brings terror to teenagers and grown-ups alike. They have a knack for appearing when you least like them to -- a day before prom night, hours before a blind date, and minutes before your center stage performance. This dreadful skin problem has neither mercy nor respect for anyone -- whether you're a hot celebrity or a regular teenager, getting a big, fat, pus-filled bump can happen to you. But instead of freaking out whenever you see one of these monsters creeping up your face, you should do something about it.
The bad news about acne is that there are about a dozen of reasons why they just pop almost out of nowhere. According to the skin care specialists at Healthypores.com, acne occurs when a pore breaks down and blocks the oil within which causes the inflammation that results in acne.
Some of the well-known culprits of acne include improper diet, stress, overactive hormones, bacteria, vitamin deficiency, evolutionary biology, or a combination of all. The good news is that there are also about a gazillion things that can help you fight off acne and other unwanted skin problems. Since acne starts in the pores, keeping the pores clean is one of the best ways to keep acne from plaguing your skin.
Why do you need to keep your skin clean?
First and foremost, the skin is the outermost layer of the body and is essentially its first line of defense against various elements. It covers approximately 19 square feet, so it's more or less the largest organ of your body. What's more, the skin (particularly that on the face) is the first thing people see when they look at you, so it's really important that you keep it clean, smooth, and acne-free. The only way you can do that is if you follow a good skin regimen.
The truth is that there is only one good skin regimen and it includes three (sometimes four) steps: cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. These three skin care steps are the basics, and they should be done everyday if you really want to maintain your beautiful skin. Experts at Healthypores.com even recommend that you do this skin regimen twice a day, right after you wake up and right before you sleep.
A Step-by-Step Guide to Proper Cleansing
1. Remove your makeup before washing your face.
Most cleansers work better and more efficiently if your face is thoroughly wet. Removing your makeup ensures that the oils in the cosmetics would not repel water and allow the cleanser to reach a good lather. You can do this by using baby oil or makeup remover on cotton balls and rubbing the makeup lightly off your face.
2. Wash your face thoroughly using lukewarm or room-temperature water.
Never wash your face with water that is too hot or too cold. Extreme temperatures can break capillaries, dehydrate skin, or even aggravate pimples. Studies also show that there is a marked improvement between the effectiveness of cleansers used with water of the right temperature over those that were applied with hot or cold water.
3. Use a gentle anti-acne cleanser specially formulated for your skin type.
If you have hypersensitive skin, you should choose a product that is mild and hypoallergenic. Meanwhile, if you have very oily skin, you might want to choose something that's slightly stronger than your regular cleanser. If you're uncertain about what kind of product to use, you should consult your dermatologist first or just go for one of those dermatologist-tested products that are good for any skin type like the Healthy Pores acne system.
4. Apply a small amount of cleanser on your face.
Pour a pea-sized amount of cleanser on your wet palms and lather it before applying on your face. Since most cleansers are concentrated, they can dehydrate your face and strip it of necessary moisture. Diluting it with water activates its ingredients and allows it to be spread evenly on your face.
Cleansers like Healthy Pores have microbeads loaded with antibacterial agents that act like scrubs so let it work for you. Most people think that the more they scrub, the more dirt they can get off their faces. This is wrong. Not only do they risk breaking capillaries, but scrubbing can also aggravate acne by pushing dirt and bacteria deeper into the pores. What you should do is massage the lather or foam onto your face in a gentle circular motion. This facilitates the blood flow in your face which improves your complexion while allowing the ingredients of your cleanser to penetrate deep in your skin.
5. Rinse your face completely and pat it dry.
Rinse your face with lukewarm running water thoroughly. Although trusted cleansers like Healthy Pores have easy-rinse formulations, it is best to ensure that you thoroughly wash your face of any trace of foam or lather. Not doing so might leave residues behind that can block your pores and aggravate your acne. After rinsing the cleanser off, use a soft, clean towel to dry your face. Never rub the towel on your face as though you are removing stubborn dirt. Just pat it dry with a non-abrasive towel.
If you are using a skin care system like Healthy Pores, you could follow this cleansing ritual with a special toner and moisturizer. Remember that when choosing a toner and a moisturizer, you should go for the ones that are compatible with your cleanser and your skin. However, if you are using a skin care system such as Healthy Pores, product incompatibility should not be a problem.
Now that you know how to properly cleanse your face, acne would surely become the least of your worries. Always keep in mind that a clean skin is a beautiful skin.
The definition for premature ejaculation is vague at best. It could mean either ejaculating before intercourse, or just as you begin intercourse, maybe a couple of minutes in. Some even define intercourse as finishing before your partner! How many times have you wished you could have more staying power? You aren't alone. In fact, the National Health and Social Life Survey (NHSLS) reports that 30% of men ejaculate prematurely.
Premature ejaculation is not a disease, but simply a sexual condition. While premature ejaculation in no way physically harms the sufferer, it does affect his relationship with his partner, who he likely leaves sexually unsatisfied. This in turn will affect his self-esteem, which leaks into other aspects of his life. But lucky for you, there is a cure. You can't just be expected to control this function though, without a little bit of help. You've probably tried thinking of something else other than sex, which may work but all it does is decrease the intensity of your orgasm. Or, that you need to turn to prescription medication which is both pricey and rife with side effects. Both are completely unnecessary. Instead, we'll teach you a few easy tricks so you can enjoy sex for longer.
Learning how to start and stop is your most effective tool in preventing early orgasm. That is, while having sex recognize the moment before you orgasm, and hold off. It should first be practiced during masturbation, and then incorporated with a partner. Learn to find that moment right as you build towards orgasm, which is signalled by a tingling feeling. Stop any stimulation once you feel this tingling. After the sensation subsides, resume stimulation. See how many times you can do this, then let yourself orgasm. It may sound easy, but you'll see it's far more difficult than it sounds. You may find that you will occasionally lose the strength of your erection - this happens occasionally. Just continue as you were before. Once you are ready for partner sex with this routine, try caressing and kissing during these little breaks.
Kegel exercises are another great way of holding off orgasm. Kegel exercises strengthen the pubococcygeus muscles, otherwise known as the PC muscles. To find these muscles, stop your urination midstream - that would be the PC muscles. Now, to do a Kegel exercise, clench the muscle, hold it for five seconds, then release. Repeat these in sets of ten until you are tired. Slowly, over time, increase the number of reps, and should ideally be repeated three times a day. You won't see any results quickly, at least not for three to four weeks. How this works is during sex, once you feel yourself building towards orgasm in the same way you learned with the start and stop technique, clench this muscle. This can be done in conjunction with the start and stop.
An herbal supplement is also a great help, as long as it comes from a reputable company. Extenze promises a longer, firmer, thicker erection. Who doesn't want that? More importantly, it increases your staying power while still increasing the power of your orgasm. This probably sounds too good to be true. But it does work, through a carefully selected blend of natural sexual enhancers. Expect results with no side effects.
Erectile Dysfunction, or ED, is a sexual dysfunction that will affect 20% of American men at some time in their life. Whether the problem is temporary or chronic, it is a condition that greatly affects a male's self-worth.
Your physical or emotional health may likely be the biggest barrier between you and a satisfying erection. While medical attention may be necessary, particularly if erectile difficulty is a symptom of a greater medical issue that has gone undiagnosed, there are many things you can do to cure ED yourself, naturally. It's easier than you think; just follow these few suggestions.
Smoking causes impotence because nicotine is a vasoconstrictor, tightening blood vessels and restricting blood flow. Drinking is well-known to cause the dreaded 'whiskey-dick,' in which too much alcohol has been consumed to maintain an erection.
Reaching your sexual peak isn't just about taking out the negative, though - it's about creating a healthy lifestyle. Too many of us forget that erections are a process of the body, and to reach peak erection results your body must also be in peak condition. A well-balanced diet, with as little processed sugars and refined foods as possible, and a few hours of exercise a week will do wonders for your sex life. Regular exercise, between three to five hours a week, has proven to reduce the chances of impotence by 30% according to a Harvard Health Professionals Follow-up Study (HPFS).
We all know sleep is important, for a variety of reasons; for example, sleep deprivation affects your mood, memory, and concentration. It also affects your erection. Sleep deprivation is a common reason for being unable to maintain an erection. So be sure to get enough sleep. While 'enough' fluctuates from person to person, that's about seven to eight hours a night.
There are a number of herbs that have been used as aphrodisiacs for thousands of years, and are recommended by doctors. An herbal supplement takes the guess work out of ingredients and dosage, containing all you need in one single capsule taken daily. We recommend Magna RX. It contains 17 key ingredients, like horny goat weed, also known as epimedium, used in traditional Chinese medicine as an aphrodisiac for centuries, and L-Arginine, an amino acid that dilates the blood vessels and increases blood flow. There are no side effects to taking Magna RX; it's completely safe and natural.
Temporary erectile dysfunction is most commonly caused by psychological factors, such as stress, worry, or guilt. Try addressing any negative feelings that may be keeping you from focusing on the task at hand. There are registered sexual therapists who are trained in these situations.
What are pheromones?
Pheromones are chemical scent signals that all humans/mammals give off. Subconsciously detected, pheromones give information about your immune system, your fertility, your current state of sexual interest… and the list goes on. Some of these pheromones target the opposite sex, and naturally trigger attraction arousal and readiness for sex. With the right chemical-hormonal signals, she automatically, instinctively responds – without even realizing what is drawing her to you!
How are pheromones detected?
Pheromone signals are detected through an organ 3 inches inside the nose called the Vomeronasal Organ (VNO). When the VNO detects the pheromone, it sends a response signal to the brain. So, while the sense of smell is usually discussed in studies of pheromone attraction, it is really a chemical response that occurs, rather than a specific identifiable smell. In other words, she responds to your chemistry on a subconscious level, with feelings of attraction, arousal, interest and excitement.
How come I haven't heard about this interesting new sense organ and human pheromones before?
Because it's a recent discovery! Although you may not have heard of pheromones and the sixth sense yet, you will: They're fast becoming household words.
Do we give off pheromones naturally?
Absolutely, we are chemically communicating with each other all the time. These pheromones that we give off are the base for most pheromone cologne style products.
If we have our own pheromones, why do we need a pheromone cologne?
Because of our cultural habits... What do we do first thing in the morning, every morning? Take a shower. Then we apply deodorants and maybe lotions or aftershaves that further mask our real body chemistry. Next, we tend to dress from head to toe, thereby covering 90% of the very skin that releases pheromones into the air. Some studies have also shown that through evolution, our natural pheromone production has gradually decreased, as civilizations have turned to social customs and norms when choosing a mate.
When you put on a pheromone cologne like Nexus Pheromones™, you're not only replacing pheromones you've washed off, covered up or lost, but adding a chemical miracle brew that will work on most women. By replenishing and even boosting your lost pheromones you can really "get back to nature," and re-establish chemical communication with people around you. People respond without even understanding why. They just know they like you.
How long do they last?
This varies a great deal depending on each person's individual chemistry and the particular scent they choose. One of the best products, Nexus Pheromones™, says its pheromone-based cologne lasts approximately 8 to 10 hours when applied on appropriate spots.
Why should I buy pheromone products?
This could be the thing that gives you the competitive edge and the confidence you need to achieve your social and sexual goals, whatever they may be. Pheromones are an easy way to boost your attraction, and then compound it with the confidence you'll have from all of the choices and attention.
Are all pheromone products about the same?
No, definitely not. They're all quite different, and the savvy consumer should always shop carefully. You should look for a product that contains pure androstenone pheromone concentrate preferably in "double strength" potency. If you are having trouble finding the right product, we recommend you consider Nexus Pheromones™.
Also, be careful of what you're paying for: be sure to compare package sizes when you buy. Some companies put as little as 10ml in a bottle while charging a hefty price.
What results should I expect with a pheromone cologne?
- More eye contact, interest and smiles from the opposite sex
- More sex appeal
- More dates and sexual intercourse
- A rejuvenation of your current relationship
- More passionate lovemaking
- A relaxing, easy effect on others around you
- More instances of being approached by the opposite sex
- Increased self confidence
- Intuitive respect and focus on you by others
Can I order and still maintain my privacy?
A good company will ship discreetly with nothing on the package to identify the precise contents. If you aren’t sure, ask before you order, though you won’t need to if you are looking at a good product.
Are there other ways to increase my sexual libido?
Of course, the best way to improve any aspect of your health is to eliminate bad habits like smoking and excessive drinking, give yourself a better diet and exercise regularly. While you're working on healthier living overall, adding a male enhancement supplement can take you to an even better level of sexual performance and pleasure.
Keeping the flame burning between a couple is hard; keeping the sexual chemistry is even harder! Being in the same monogamous relationship for years, one can use up all his ideas about foreplays and sex, creating dull and boring lovemaking routines. After all, it's inevitable for the sex to become a usual procedure and the foreplay's excitement to fade away.
Foreplay is as essential as the sex itself. When that point comes, don't let familiarity and boredom take over. You aren't alone; every couple wades through the same dilemma. Hopefully a long monogamous relationship leads to being comfortable enough for sexual experimentation. Otherwise, some tips may help in reviewing and experimenting foreplays to exalt sexual relationship.
Just the giving of a man's attention to his partner already sparks up sensual connection; thus, the connection would be much more evident when she is conversed with and really listened to. Even when a man has decided to be open and is simply sharing thoughts to a woman, the attraction becomes more intense. Try showing casual interest in a woman's ideas and stories; it makes them feel loved and important and eventually, make them sexually provoked. A man can talk about his dreams with his partner in it, his wild fantasies that he would want to experience, or anything he would want to share that could bring excitement.
Eyes can be so powerful in teasing; one can communicate by just looking at a woman with so much enthusiasm. The lower lips can be bitten in such a manner that can tell how much a girl is craved. The hands may also be used to wander around the body; the hands can land on a woman's inner thighs while watching television. As for the arms, one or both may be stretched out to display more of chest area to urge a woman to dive into him relentlessly.
There is so much a person could do and use to tease -- almost every body part. In fact, one can use something natural within him: sex appeal. But if it begins to pall as the relationship runs long, there are commercially available hormones, called pheromones, which could help a person bring his appeal back.
Pheromones were first identified in animals and were used to naturally attract a possible mate. According to Nexuspheromones.com, researchers eventually found the same hormone in humans' body. After years of studies and experiments, these pheromones were proven to be among the main causes of attraction. Today, pheromone products, such as Nexus Pheromones™, make the said substance readily available to instantly attract the opposite sex.
But whatever a man chooses as his method for teasing a woman, the trick is to take one step at a time. Let her wait and let her want more. The longer the teasing goes, the more she'll want you.
The art of kissing does not simply consist of lips and tongue work. Kissing requires hands--hands that can stroke that body and can let passion be felt. The tongue work can be saved for the sex part, when the man is already on the genital part of his partner.
While kissing, a man can glide his fingers gently to the woman's cheeks, her neck, and then through her scalp and her hairtips. Hands can be stroked against her back down to her butt slowly. Remember that a woman wants to be kissed with emotions and desire. Thus, with this in mind, the kissing will surely turn her on regardless of where men's kisses land on.
It may seem unimportant but undressing is actually a cunning part of the foreplay. A shirt could be pulled off a woman's body in a sexy, slow way.. Through some practice, a man can unbutton and unzip the pants of his partner not using the hands--just the lips and teeth alone.
Undressing a woman in a sensual way depends greatly on what type of dress and undergarments she wears. Don't try to undress her as if you'll tear her clothes off because it may send the message that you are dying to get into her right away. Learn the art in it and make it a vital step in your foreplay.
Some are only used to getting a massage only when their muscles are fatigued, but this kind of trick can also induce their muscles' exhaustion after the relaxation! To complement a massage, there are lot of scented candles and oils which can insinuate lovemaking. Scented candles can soothe and calm her senses while oil helps in giving a good glide of the massage all over her naked body. Colognes and sprays can also be used over the body before giving a massage. Some of the market product hormones come in sprays, like Nexus Pheromones™, making it easier for them to be desired.
Being able to offer a good relaxing massage may mean that both of them really are comfortable and well-connected with each other. But a man may also not depend on his hands alone. Massaging a woman's body with his own can result in a higher sexual intensity.
Today, there are many pheromones products in the market, and you most probably wonder what these products, such as the Nexus Pheromones, are for.
The word pheromone originates from theGreek words "pherein" (to transfer) and "hormon" (to stimulate). Coined by experts Adolf Butenandt and Peter Karlson in 1959, this term describes the chemical signals among living organisms that elicit response from the physiology or behavior of other members. Pheromones are chemical substances generated by one living organism and are transmitted to other organisms that belong in one species. Pheromones are substances that usually ignite the sexual urge among animals or people.
But for animals, pheromones are commonly used for communication. There are different pheromone types, with each type belonging to two categories of usage: as territory markers or as attraction or aggression starters. The epideictic pheromones, territorial pheromones, and trail pheromones belong to the first category. The epideictic pheromones are usually seen in insects. Commonly, female insects leave substances around the vicinity where they clutch their eggs so that other insects will automatically find another place. This pheromone type is similar with the territorial pheromones that animals use to label the scope of their territories. For example, dogs use urine to mark their territories. Lastly, the trail pheromones are used by social insects like ants, which leave chemical elements on paths they tread on so they can go back to their nests correctly. Ants also use their pheromones to guide other members to the right path, usually toward a source of food.
The second category includes the aggregation pheromones, alarm pheromones, primer pheromones, and sex pheromones. The primer pheromones are the most uncommon among the four types while the aggregation pheromones are substances that attract both male and female organisms. The latter pheromones are unusual because the typical pheromones attract specific members of the community only; for instance, if you're a man, you'll normally attract women. Meanwhile, there are species that, when attacked, release a substance that triggers aggression in other members of the community of that species-- a substance called alarm pheromone. But other than aggression, there are also pheromones that lure mates for breeding that are called sex pheromones. Generally, a male insect can sense or detect the pheromones created by a female insect even if he is 10 kilometers away from her.
Proven that these classifications of pheromones are natural tools used by animals for communication, scientists also believe that pheromones also work in human beings. The human vomeronasal organ (VNO), a tiny organ situated in the human's nasal cavity, serves as the body's receptor of such substances. Since the vomeronasal organ is linked to the vessels of the brain, it sends the signals that it receives from the pheromones to the human brain. Then, the brain dictates the response of the body, which becomes evident in the man's behavior.
In connection to the statement above, studies show that human beings use the sense of smell to select their mates. In fact, Swedish experts have proven that, with the use of the latest brain imaging device, both homosexual males and heterosexual females react in a common manner when they are sexually aroused by male odors. Another study has found out that through the use of odor, pheromones have the ability to synchronize the menstrual cycles of different women. With pheromones, the female's ovulation can either shorten or lengthen depending on the signal that the female receives. Scientists call this process McClintock effect.
To further prove that pheromones are natural parts of human beings or their everyday lives, scientists have documented their findings using medical journals including Nature, The Scientist, and Microscopy-UK and Micscape Magazine as well as reports such as Report from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Presentation to International Society for Human Ethology, Simon Fraser University. Due to the unbelievable functions of pheromones, even TV and print media have covered different scientific facts about these body substances. Dateline NBC, 20/20, ABC News, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, and Time Magazine are examples of those media.
Consequently, various companies have produced pheromone products like Nexus Pheromones to help people find partners. These products are clinically proven formulations that attract males and females. Pheromone products are created specifically for men to allow them to communicate silently to women, using only their odors. Some males use these products by blending them with their aftershaves. The Nexus Pheromones, for example, can be mixed by men in their aftershaves so that women will be able to smell their scents when they have a chance to get close to women. With these pheromone products, men do not need to take muscle pills or waste their sweat in the gym anymore just to improve their likeability; all they need is a simple scent produced by pheromones products.
However, men must not rely on pheromones products alone to attract women. They should also consider the importance of hygiene and appearance. For instance, a man uses Nexus Pheromones but he does not shower everyday, does not brush his teeth, and dresses up like a filthy street beggar. Do you think this kind of look will attract women? Certainly not, because women prefer both good-smelling and good-looking men. Simply put, pheromones products can help men lure women, but the end result also depends on the man's presentation of himself.
The aforementioned scientific discoveries and explanations may seem to be so simple that a lot of people already believe in the 'mysterious' works of pheromones to the body, specifically factors that influence the attraction between human beings. Indeed, with the use of vomeronasal organs and pheromones, people often find themselves attracted to someone they do not even know. Probably, this is the reason for that thing called "chemistry," but whatever label people attach to this kind of attraction, one thing is for sure: the effect that pheromones bring is not mere speculation but a proven fact.
What is in topical erection oils?
The formulations vary by manufacturer as to their exact ingredients. They may contain herbs, nutrients, amino acids and other natural ingredients. Look for a statement that attests to the product's purity and effectiveness, and also for information about the transdermal delivery of ingredients. Formulations without the correct considerations for transdermal delivery may not be as effective.
How do topical erection oils compare with Viagra?
Many of the effects are quite similar, however, topical erection oils come in transdermal form, and are applied to the genitals, so unlike Viagra, you don't ingest anything. One of the benefits of this is that topical oil works much faster -- within seconds -- because there's no waiting for a drug to work its way through the digestive system. Next, topical erection oils are all natural, based on time-tested botanicals and new transdermal technology. That means you can get the product without a prescription, there are no side effects. Erection oils are effective and far more affordable than prescription drugs.
Are topical erection oils condom-compatible?
This varies from product to product, as well as the type of condom you are using. Latex condoms should not be used with oil, so if this is a concern, look for formulas that do not contain petroleum jelly or mineral oil. Water based formulas, like VigRX Oil™, are best.
Will it leave a greasy or oily residue?
Again, check the specific ingredients of a product. Water-based formulas provide immediate absorption into the tissue of the penis without an oily or greasy feeling. Oil based formulas tend to leave greasy residue, so read the product information carefully.
Which topical erection oils are safe to use for oral sex?
Oils with no synthetic, chemical, petrochemical by-products, artificial colors and/or fragrances are safe to use. VigRX Oil™, the industry leader, has a natural base with the therapeutic ingredients to offer the safest, most effective product available to date. This varies from product to product, and the answer to this question is most often found in the FAQ section.
How do I apply it?
Whenever using any fluid or oil on sensitive areas of your body, it is best to test it out on a small scale first. If there are no problems on the test, try massaging the oil into the penis all over until an erection is achieved. When you first begin to use the product, we suggest masturbating with it before using it during sex to become more comfortable with the amount needed and the sensation it produces.
Can these oils complicate sexual disease?
Erection oils are not recommended for those with a Herpes Simplex Virus outbreak or any other open sores or skin lesions in the genital area. Check with your doctor for appropriate practice if you have any sexual health concerns.
How is this different from an oral tablet?
The effects are similar, however, topical oils are meant to give an immediate response that lasts throughout your sexual session. Pills tend to be more long-term and overall-sexual-health focused, giving ongoing benefits all the time. Oils are scientifically designed to penetrate the deepest layers of the penile tissue instantaneously giving noticeable results within 90 seconds. With an oil, 95% of the therapeutic ingredients are absorbed, compared to approximately 5-10% with an herbal capsule or tablet. The products can be used concurrently; however, we feel its best to use oil and a tablet from the same manufacturer that were designed to work together. VigRX™ pills and VigRX Oil™ are a good example -- these are produced by a reputable company and can be used together safely and with excellent results.
Will this increase penile and sexual performance?
Yes, one is most likely to notice the benefit in the areas of strength and rigidity of the penis and also a reduction in the occurrence of premature ejaculation.
Will this oil increase the size of my penis?
Because oils will allow for greater blood flow to the penis, you may notice your erection feels more powerful and seems larger in circumference and strength. Although your penis will not grow in size from the product, it will reach its full size capacity.
How much does it cost?
Topical erection oils are much less expensive than prescription drugs. But because good, effective oils contain pure natural ingredients, they do cost more than a simple lubricant. Overall, they're surprisingly inexpensive for all you get. Prices range from $40 to $150 a bottle. Most companies offer a discount if you purchase in larger quantities. VigRX Oil™ is one of the most recommended products, and it costs $49.95 USD a bottle.
What type of guarantee do I get?
We'd recommend that you never buy from a company that does NOT offer a full money-back guarantee. Before you order, you should feel that if you don't see a substantial increase in the hardness of your erections, or better sexual performance, then you can return it for a refund, no questions asked. This is the VigRX Oil™ guarantee, and we think it should be the industry standard. Unfortunately, not everyone offers a guarantee as good as this.
Are there other ways to improve my sexual health?
Of course, the best way to improve any aspect of your health is to eliminate bad habits like smoking and excessive drinking, give yourself a better diet and exercise regularly. While you're working on healthier living overall, adding a male enhancement supplement can take you to an even better level of sexual performance and pleasure.
New transdermal technologies have made it possible to encapsulate active, herbal ingredients into an oil that you can apply right to the source of the action -- so they take effect immediately. You just massage a little oil onto your penis, and let the games begin.
Too good to be true? Nope. Transdermal oils really do work, and their application as an erection and sexual stamina enhancer is like a match made in heaven.
Here's how it works: ideally, the oil is silky, condom-compatible (aka: water based), and non-greasy. It provides naturally occurring nutrients and herbal extracts directly to the male organ via a breakthrough method known as the transdermal method, or in some products like VigRX Oil™, the German Transdermal Delivery system. This is the latest scientific development in beneficial nutrient absorption through the skin, so the naturally-derived therapeutic ingredients, botanical extracts, vitamin complexes and antioxidants go straight into the tissues of the penis, creating fast and immediately effective results.
Good-quality oils in this category should produce greater penile firmness, an increase in penile tissue engorgement, a longer-lasting erection, and a far reduced occurrence of premature ejaculation.
So how are these oils different from an oral tablet for male enhancement? Enhancement oils are designed to penetrate the deepest layers of the penile tissue and testicles instantaneously, and give noticeable results within 30 - 90 seconds. Because the absorption is direct to the genitals using the transdermal method, 95% of the beneficial ingredients are absorbed, compared to approx 5 to 10% with an herbal capsule or tablet. The other benefit: it lets you be ready for anything! The last-minute nature of this product means you can use it right when you need it with nothing else to remember or take.
Male enhancement oils are part of the next generation of sexual products, and are revolutionizing the industry with their effectiveness. Although commonly referred to as oils, many of these products are water-based. If you are going to be using your “oil” with condoms, make sure the formula you select is water based as oil based formulas reduce the effectiveness of latex. If you are unsure which products are safe with condoms, we suggest you try VigRX Oil™.
The ingredients vary widely by manufacturer, but may include variety of natural herbal remedies, vitamins, amino acids and flavoring. One of the main ingredients in assisting with the sexual boost is L-Argynine, an amino acid which converts to nitric oxide, a fundamental building block to the cycle of orgasm in men. Two other good indicators of quality are the method of manufacture and the longevity of the maker, that is, how long they've been in business.
Since oils are one of the easiest and most fun products to test, the best way to learn about them is just by trying them. For all-around effectiveness and quality control, we like VigRX Oil™, made by the same company as the most popular male oral supplement available, VigRX pills. The criteria for a good oil are all met by VigRX Oil™, and the company offers a full money back guarantee that we’ve tested and verified.
At some point in his sexual life, man gets to experience some form of incapacity. Often, this causes him to push the panic button, erroneously thinking that he may have lost the power to give pleasure to a woman. Such a reaction is actually uncalled for, since male sexual incapacity is often a temporary thing, and in most cases, will tend to resolve itself over time.
Still, most men will take such experiences quite seriously, regardless of how fleeting these may be, because their thinking is that the problem may be permanent and that it could be something that is exclusive to them. However, the situation is far from the truth, because male sexual concerns are common among men regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or social class.
For the male population, there are generally two common sexual difficulties. These are impotence and infertility, with the former now more accurately referred to as ED or erectile dysfunction, which sometimes carries another similar disorder, which is premature ejaculation or PE.
Some people often think that infertility and impotence or erectile dysfunction are one and the same, but actually, they are not. Infertility involves the inability of the male sex organ to produce the needed sperm that will impregnate a woman, something that is usually a permanent problem. On the other hand, erectile dysfunction or ED is described as the inability of man to keep an erection, especially in the midst of sexual intercourse, and is often viewed as temporary and highly treatable.
With premature ejaculation, meanwhile, the problem results when man reaches orgasm prior to, during, or shortly after penetration is made, and often before he and his mate desires it. Actually, this particular dysfunction falls under the more general male sexual dysfunction of orgasmic disorder which also includes inhibited ejaculation, where man is unable to ejaculate even when he has reached sexual orgasm. Both disorders are believed to be brought on by either physical or psychological factors, or even both, but are generally quite treatable through the use of special sexual techniques.
These sexual difficulties are considered as the more common ones usually experienced by man at various stages of his life. There is usually a sort of pattern when these problems crop up, although it does not automatically mean that when man experiences one, the others will follow sooner or later. In any case, premature ejaculation takes place at that point in life when man is still sexually inexperienced and often gets to resolve itself over time. Later in his life, as man gains adequate sexual experiences, he could temporarily experience erectile dysfunction or impotence, significantly affecting his desire to produce a baby and start a family. Then much later in life, during old age, his biological make-up has undergone many changes that results in the inability of his organ to produce the needed sperm essential for pregnancy to take place.
Whatever sexual problem man gets to experience in his life, there is no doubt that it can have devastating effects on his self-esteem. Society has often viewed male as a strong species, best characterized by his ability to reproduce. When he fails to discharge this particular function, he is often looked down upon, and generally regarded as an inferior being.
Yet what most men do not realize is that majority of the sexual problems that they encounter can be readily resolved These days modern technology has allowed us to develop an innumerable number of formulations that provide effective solutions to many modern disorders and diseases.
For example, premature ejaculation that has psychological origins can be conveniently treated through the help of experienced sex therapists who can determine what factors interplayed among one another, eventually resulting to the disorder. Alternatively, several anti-depressant drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil, have been known to be effective treatments in several premature ejaculation cases, particularly when taken in correct dosages.
With ED or erectile dysfunction, no single definite cause can be accurately identified, but rather a mix of both psychological and biological factors. Among the more common ones are performance anxiety, a basic fear among men that they may not get to perform satisfactorily in bed, giving rise to stress and significantly affecting future performances; communication gap, the lack or the absence of dialogue among couples as to how they want to be treated can result in the eventual loss of sexual interest for one another; cardiovascular disorders, diseases affecting the heart often involves damages to the blood vessels, which are essential in sexual intercourse; and medications, several prescription drugs often used to address common disorders like diabetes, depression, and hypertension can have adverse effects on sexual functions.
In the case of infertility, the culprit is usually biological in nature, and can come about essentially because of old age. Particularly, as man goes beyond his prime years, the male sexual hormone testosterone is produced at significantly lower amounts, drastically affecting his desire for sexual intimacy. In contrast, the stress hormone, cortisol, is produced at comparatively higher amounts, perhaps due to family-related problems and even to post-work concerns. Either way, this further dampens sexual desires.
Regardless of the cause, man need not really panic when he gets to encounter any of these sexual concerns. They are not isolated cases, and majority of men from all across the globe experience one or several of them one way or the other. The key is to admit that there is a problem, identify the cause, and try to find the appropriate solution, ideally by seeking medical help.
Most sex experts will probably prescribe a particular treatment program, especially in premature ejaculation cases. On the other hand, erectile dysfunction or ED, and even infertility, is often addressed through the use of short-term treatments, typically sex pills and formulated solutions like VigRX Oil. These alternatives are increasingly becoming popular these days largely because of their safety and effectiveness. VigRX Oil, in particular, is made up of herbal plant extracts taken from various parts of the world including China, South America, and Europe. Herbal plants, of course, have long been known to contain aphrodisiac qualities, specifically those endemic to China. Apparently, their inclusion as main ingredients of VigRX Oil should provide adequate answers for most male sexual concerns.
Actually, alternative sexual treatments like VigRX Oil are not entirely new in the market. They have been around for centuries but modern medicine has previously frowned upon them as effective solutions, having particular preference for more sophisticated treatments. It is only recently that modern science has realized the true worth of these alternative medicines, hence their incorporation in the modern set-up of things.
When it comes to the sack, men follow this general protocol: get it up and keep it up. Failure to do either (or worse, both) is bound to make a man think less of himself. Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation are perhaps two of the things men fear the most; that's probably why they decided to reduce these terms into abbreviations--- ED and PE--- to lessen the shock it brings. While premature ejaculation is the lesser evil between the two, it is nonetheless the more baffling.
The Hard Truth
The truth is that most men are not even sure what constitutes a premature ejaculation. For many, premature ejaculation is when they released their load even before they succeeded in sexually satisfying their partner. This often leads men to think of premature ejaculation in terms of how long instead of just plain how. While time can be a major factor in premature ejaculation, the issue is actually more about control. Some men may consider lasting for 20 minutes without ejaculating a feat, but what good does it bring if within that time frame, you weren't even able to hold it a little longer to satisfy your woman? Making it last long simply isn't synonymous to making it last long enough to make your partner happy.
The thing about premature ejaculation is that even though it's the most common sexual problem in men, not many are willing to discuss it. Men who suffer from premature ejaculation often feel some sort of stigma. It's hard enough to know that you can't keep it up in bed, but making other people (aside from your partner) know about it is always harder. However, it might bring you some relief to know that you're not alone on this ride. Truth of the matter is that the majority of men experience premature ejaculation at one point of their lives. According to a study based on the 1992 National Health and Social Life Survey data, out of 1,410 men, one-third of them had frequent problems with premature ejaculation. So really, there's no need to panic--- not if you can help it.
Solving the Problem
It will undoubtedly delight you to know that premature ejaculation is curable. As long as you are keen on getting help and putting in considerable time and effort to solve your problem, you're guaranteed to get yourself out of this one fast. There are plenty of ways out there that can help you treat premature ejaculation. From natural methods to medical means, it's all up to you to make your choice.
Whenever you feel like you're on the verge of reaching the ejaculatory process, try thinking of something other than the act you're doing. For instance, try thinking about what you had for dinner or what you'll be doing next Saturday. You can also divert your attention by looking at any inanimate object in the room and taking interest on it instead. This technique will help you stall your ejaculation but there's a downside to it. While it can slow down your orgasm, it can also have a major effect on its intensity. Another downside is that you may find yourself totally distracted that you start performing poorly.
Do the Kegel
Kegel exercises are also recommended by medical experts to help you put off ejaculation. The purpose of Kegel exercises is to strengthen your pelvic muscles and let you have more control over ejaculating. The good thing about Kegel exercises is that you can do them almost anytime and anywhere. They are done by contracting your pelvic muscles (the ones you use for holding and starting bowel movement and urination) for three seconds and relaxing them for another three. You can do this routine for about 10 times in a day.
Wearing a thick rubber before having sex serves two purposes: it gives you protection from sexually transmitted diseases and it reduces the amount of sensation you feel through the entire deed. The latter is actually the reason some men and women aren't all crazy about condoms. However, if you often experience premature ejaculation, using thick condoms can help you prolong. Again, there's a downside to it. If you're partner is one of those women who don't like the feel of condom inside them, then this technique obviously isn't for you.
Another way to delay ejaculation is to use desensitizing creams. Like thick condoms, these creams can help lessen the stimulation on your member and as a result, you get to do the thing you do sans the anxiety of getting there in record time. The creams are very effective, but just like the previous treatments, this one also has its downside. The biggest hurdle with creams is that it takes a few minutes before it can take effect. Thus, it's a bit difficult to "introduce" it in bed without your partner raising an eyebrow. It's all good for men who are already in long-term relationships because there's a big chance that their partners won't mind but it's a different case with men who's about to have sex with a new partner for the first time.
This is where you'll need a product that will work fast and will not draw curious looks from your girl. VigRX Oil is just one of the few well-known products out there that can help you with this sticky situation. Unlike creams, VigRX Oil works in less than a minute so you no longer need to wait for it to take effect before you can get some action. What's more, this product looks like a lubricant so there's a little chance that your girl will question you about it. And since it's made from nature-derived ingredients, you won't have to worry about adverse side effects, either. It's safe, effective, doctor-endorsed, and above all, it works fast-- what more can you possibly ask for?
Since time immemorial, man has continuously sought ways to give himself sexual pleasure. These include experimenting on a wide variety of devices such as condoms and lubricants. Condoms have traditionally been targeted for men while lubricants have been obviously for women, although in recent years, modern technology has come up with the female version of condoms and a lubricant known for being applicable on the male sex organ.
While condoms are strictly known as contraceptive devices and protection against sexually transmitted diseases, lubricants are largely intended to give sexual pleasure, thereby making sexual intercourse more enjoyable. They can ably do this by providing the needed fluid to make the intimate area of the human body wet, and thereby slippery, making for a totally pleasurable sexual experience.
Of course, in the case of a woman, her physical composition has been specifically built to lubricate itself, so that in most cases, the need for a sex lubricant is done away with. Still, in several instances, lubricants become quite essential, if only to make sex even more enjoyable, and at the same time, to provide a sense of adventure to an otherwise normal act.
Additionally, lubricants are known to reduce friction during intercourse, enhancing the sexual pleasures that both partners feel. Aside from that, using lubricants eliminates the chances of damage taking place in the genital tissues which are obviously quite sensitive. This is especially true in cases when a woman experiences vaginal dryness, which is actually a normal occurrence. This is basically because estrogen production tends to fluctuate at times, resulting to vaginal dryness, and this usually happens during specific times, namely, during a woman's monthly period, during stressed-out moments, and during intercourse when a condom is used without a lubricant.
Some women, meanwhile, make use of lubricants in order to increase their cervical fluid count, and this is generally acceptable, although it must be pointed out that lubricants are not supposed to replace the natural fluid that a woman produces when sexually aroused. At most, they should merely be resorted to in order to stimulate the cervix to produce the said fluids in significantly larger amounts so that sex becomes truly enjoyable, especially for women.
Sexual lubricants come in a wide variety of forms, with variations often centered in the areas of texture, taste, smell, and flavor. Typically, however, lubricants are commonly available in three distinct kinds namely water-based, silicone-based, and oil-based.
If one is practicing safe sex, the general recommendation is to use either silicone-based or water-based sexual lubricants since these are both considered condom-friendly. Oil-based types are known to destroy latex, the main component of most modern-day condoms, and will not effectively work with them in preventing the further spread of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV.
The choice of which lubricant type to use is really a question of preference because each one has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. For example, lubricants based on water are far more popular and comparatively cheaper. They can also be easily removed from the body aside from being available in various types such as warming and flavored.
Silicon-based sexual lubricants, meanwhile, are known to be more expensive and can only be removed from the skin by means of water and soap. However, they do have the advantage of not drying up or evaporating since they do not have water ingredients, aside from the fact that the skin will not get to absorb them.
For its part, oil-based sexual lubricants are often recommended for masturbation since they usually stay longer and are quite slick. The downside of it is that the main component, petroleum, is known to destroy a wide variety of sexual contraceptives like condoms, diaphragms, sponges, cervical caps, and other devices that are latex-based. Some oil-based products are also known for producing a thick coating around the vaginal walls. Over time, this becomes difficult to remove, paving the way for the formation of genital bacterias and infections.
Many sexual lubricants have been out in the market for years, with some of them ably creating a good and credible name among their patrons. Thus far, water-based types are still the most popular of lubricants, primarily because they offer no significant side effects to users, making them relatively safe to use. Recent studies, however, have centered around parabens, a known preservative utilized in a number of water-formed sexual lubricants, ostensibly to prevent the possible growth of microbes and bacterias.
Using preservatives in many lubricants is an accepted practice since the potential for bacterial growth is quite great given the kind of ingredients that most lubricants carry. However, studies show that several breast tumor cases contain the parabens element, giving rise to the possibility that parabens actually contributes to breast cancer.
Another study indicates the possible link of parabens to skin aging. The preservative is known to be capable of sensitizing the skin, making it vulnerable to allergies. Eventually, the process is said to adversely affect the skin, by inhibiting the creation of new cells and thereby accelerating the process of aging.
The studies are still considered by many to be quite inconclusive as they only involved a fairly small segment of the affected population. Thus, for the most part, water-based sexual lubricants are still user-friendly, even with the presence of parabens. Nevertheless, just to be on the safe side, it is always best to settle for lubricants that contain natural ingredients like herbal plant extracts. VigRX Oil is one such product and also happens to be water-based.
Some people may not find VigRX Oil to be strictly a sexual lubricant. Yet, considering the fact that it is generally used prior to intercourse and is intended to enhance the pleasures that accompany the act, there is little doubt that VigRX Oil is indeed an excellent lubricant. Of course, the big difference between VigRX Oil and most other lubricants is that the former is principally marketed for the male population. Definitely, this is one innovation that will go a long way in advancing the cause of sexual intimacy.
What do transdermal male enhancement "patches" do?
The patch is the latest method of delivering pharmaceutical or natural ingredients to the body. You've seen many common medications that now are available as a patch. In the case of male enhancement patches, the ingredients pass directly through the skin and into the bloodstream to increase overall virility and sexual health in men. harder erections and better stamina, increased physical sensations, improved sex drive, and greater confidence. With continued use of a good patch product, you can expect consistent, reliably superior sexual performance.
How do transdermal male enhancement patches work?
Because the skin is a barrier through which many pharmaceutical ingredients can pass, transdermal, or "through the skin" technology has gained popularity in recent years. The ingredients bypass the digestive system, so dosing is often more accurate with transdermal patches and results in a more predictable blood level of the pharmaceutical ingredients. With this latest transdermal technology, a high-quality patch works by releasing all-natural active ingredients directly into the bloodstream. Patches for male sexual benefits vary in terms of exact formulation of ingredients and quality of preparation of the actual patch, but most contain a fairly lengthy list of botanical ingredients known to have positive effects for men. These ingredients work by increasing production of testosterone, increasing circulation to the male reproductive organs, balancing hormones to create the correct chemistry for strong libido and performance, and improved erectile function. Look for a product that fully explains the purpose and effect of each of its ingredients, plus a statement of manufacture in a certified laboratory.
Are there any side effects?
There are no side effects at all for most men. In very few cases, there are mild skin irritations that occur at the site of the patch application. Transdermal patches are a great way to avoid side effects, since a patch's ingredients do not enter the digestive system, the chance of getting an upset stomach is small. Our studies awarded the MaxiDerm™ patch the best ranking for side effects, a great honor when considering that MaxiDerm™ was also recognized for making the greatest difference.

It's fast becoming the preferred method of taking medicines, because there's no dilution of potency, no nausea or side effects to the digestive system, continuous time-released delivery and more accurate blood levels of the desired ingredients. It's also very easy to use and has a long shelf life.
It's no surprise, then, that this popular method of administering pharmaceuticals has also come to the all-natural male enhancement sector. Once only available in oral tablets or capsules, male enhancement benefits are now in the patch, making it super effective and more convenient than ever.
Thousands of men have already used the patch to address these concerns: Natural penis enhancement, harder, longer-lasting erections when aroused, better ejaculation control, consistently stronger sex drive, and greater orgasm intensity.
Patch products for male enhancement benefit from years of research and the latest up-to-the-minute know-how on transdermal pharmaceutical delivery. The patches release their active ingredients directly through the skin into the bloodstream in a sustained, gradual way over several hours. Because the ingredients don’t have to travel through the stomach, potency is much more predictable and efficient. Unlike pills, which often have to be taken at frequent intervals, the patch is a simple one-time application for full strength throughout the day.
The patch maintains consistent, non-fluctuating levels of active ingredients in the bloodstream - so there are no sudden dips or crashes.
For male enhancement, quality patches are difficult to come by. The companies that have a good track record of customer ordering, customer results and involvement by medical professionals are obviously the ones to choose. The surveys we conducted showed that the MaxiDerm™ product gave the greatest results, and Albion Medical, the company that produces it, has a long history of satisfied customers.
