Berkeley became an entrepreneurial success story and a major Cincinnati employer. Smilin' Bob's grin grew so big it looked as though it was about to split his face in two, but the grin hid a secret. Though Berkeley bragged in ads that Enzyte had a 96% customer-satisfaction rate, huge numbers of customers had actually complained. The complaints grew loud enough that the head of the Better Business Bureau wrote a letter to Warshak in mid-2004 to announce "serious concerns about the number of complaints" it had received.
Warshak now resides in an Ohio federal prison (his mother Harriet was eventually given five years probation instead of jail time, and due to ill health was released from community service obligations). He forfeited homes, numerous bank accounts, several vehicles, annuities, college savings plans, a $10,000 membership to the La Costa Resort and Spa, two grand pianos, and even a Segway scooter as part of the judgment against him.

Unsurprisingly then, he’s not a fan of the techniques Big Al et al employ. “It may stretch the penis for awhile, but as soon as you let it go, it’s going to go back.

You can also permanently damage nerves, he adds, creating small tears in the penis that cause numbness and internal bleeding.

Guys who feel inadequate are self-conscious and that shows during sex.” How to up your confidence? Use these tips:
