Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060755512, Hardcover)

Lamm (The Virility Solution, Thinner at Last), a practicing internist and expert on male sexual health, insists there is a direct link between the quality of a man’s overall health and the quality of his erections. Just as physicians can measure a patient’s blood pressure and percentage of body fat, Lamm claims he can measure the strength of a man’s erections (The Hardness Factor) using a new computerized device invented by a Spanish urologist. He is, therefore, not just interested in whether or not a guy can get hard during sex, but how hard. No wonder he’s such a popular guest on women’s talk shows like Oprah and The View. It is this ability to measure hardness that allows Lamm to argue it can be improved in six weeks. The program outlined in the book is heavily focused on diet and exercise with the use of a few key supplements (Pycnogenol, L-Arginine, omega-3 fatty acids, Niacin, Vitamins C and E, and Horny Goat Weed). While there is a place for prescription drugs like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis, Lamm believes these should generally be reserved for those with more serious health problems limiting their ability to achieve erections, such as diabetes, heart disease, and the aftermath of prostate cancer surgery. Most men he treats don’t need them. And one upside to this often-embarrassing issue is that by getting healthier in order to get harder, men can avoid the underlying illnesses that would require the use of such drugs in the future.--Patrick Jennings
