Daily Dosage: Your big penis overdose
Remember ExtenZe? Given that I haven’t been burdened with the embarrassment and dissatisfaction of a small penis, I didn’t know much about the “herbal enhancer” until a recent infomercial (Saturday morning, 4:15 a.m.) enlightened me.
The tablets are marketed as a natural way to enlarge your nether regions and boost bedroom performance. Ron Jeremy even appeared in early infomercials for the brand – though he proudly proclaimed (and I think we can all agree) that he doesn’t need any help in the libido department.
According to the ExtenZe website, the pills are a blend of natural herbs and “medicinal substances” - including toxic levels of lead, according to the California district attorney’s office, who sued the company in 2006 after consumer complaints of illness. With that in mind, I had to wonder: can a dude overdose on ExtenZe? And if so, what are the consequences?
Pregnenolone, one of the steroids in the pills, will cause hair loss and acne
Too much Yohimbine, the main ingredient in ExtenZe, causes anxiety and insomnia
Nettle leaf, which sounds benign, may not be: expect gastrointestinal distress with an OD
So you may or may not get a bigger penis. But take more than the recommended dosage, and you’re sure to be a winner in the bedroom: ladies love bald, anxious men with acne, gas and diarrhea. But at least you won’t fall asleep right after you do it. Women hate that.
