Default Re: is all muscles effected?

We did discuss this a while back and if it worked before it should still work. Now I did mention to my Neuro about shrinkage and he said no one else had mentioned it. Someone here did mention it just in passing a week or two ago. Most guys don't want to talk about that so we are left to our own conclusions.

Hey guys, the penis is not a muscle (so stop exercising! ) so as long as you still have blood flow and the spirit, getting an erection is no problem.

Not a lot of muscle there but some. If you live long enough, you will have some atrophy. Not science yet but a theory, I'm working on.

The atrophy theory. No one seems to want to touch that topic.
