Penile implant makers to demonstrate wares
pioneer press ^ | 4-23-09 | Christopher Snowbeck

Posted on 04/24/2009 7:43:13 AM PDT by WOBBLY BOB

Penile implant manufacturers in the Twin Cities will be strutting their stuff at a doctors meeting in Chicago this weekend.

Minnetonka-based American Medical Systems said Thursday that it will be introducing a new "concealable" penile prosthesis called Spectra during the annual meeting of the American Urological Association.

The product is the latest in a series of surgical implants developed by AMS for men with severe cases of erectile dysfunction that aren't helped by other treatments such as drugs like Viagra.

The Spectra is a "malleable" prosthesis that is surgically implanted in the penis to provide enough rigidity for sexual intercourse.

But also, "Spectra provides a superior angle of concealment ... which enables discreet placement," the company said in a release.

AMS' primary competitor in the $125 million market for penile implants is a Danish company called Coloplast, which also manufactures the devices in the Twin Cities.

I just want to know, WHO is going to demonstrate the wares?

I don't think I would want the world to know that I had erectile disfunction.

Naw, he's already on someone else's list. (Viagra?)

I was thinking more like Ron Jeremy.
If he had erectile disfunction and they could make HIS member good enough, THAT would be a testimony for their "wares".

I’m sure the various sales staffs are expecting stiff competition. Will each of them be able to stand up to the others?

We have a local guy who has an implant and he loves to brag about it. The problem is, he also has a hearing loss. Like many with hearing loss, he talks loud enough to hear himself. Thus, everyone, EVERYONE, hears anything he says.

IWB vs. FBI strong side: Everyone has their preference for their favorite tool. This one is carried center of necessity, not preference... “Mexican”, I guess.

That’s not an implant - that’s what was left over after a circumcision.

I can already see an ad concept:

The downside is having to explain to your partner why you're doing "armpit farts"....
