My journaling may have ended, but my 'life' as an implanted man is just beginning. Since joining the brotherhood at Frank Talk, the advice, encouragement, compassion and support have been priceless. I have been able to share my journey and encouraged other men on theirs. I've celebrated with men whose implants were terrific and prayed for those with less favorable outcomes. I have developed life long relationships with men struggling with ED just like me. Thanks to Frank Talk I can always get and give sfupport whenever it's needed. As long as I can, I will gladly give advice and compassionate support to brothers on their own ', journeys'. Feel free to PM me or add to my threads anytime. Your 'bionic brother,' Rev. DD Bryan.

You think weird? Read Dr Elizabeth Rosenthal's book, An American Sickness (How healthcare became big business and how you can take it back).

Truly worth a listening, if not a thorough read.

Since my implant on Oct 3, 2016 (over 6 months ago) I have made the following observations.
1. My dick is significantly larger. My dick would fluctuate from 2 to 3 inches. Now it is a consistent 5.5 inches. Guys with an implant you will have a larger flaccid dick. My larger dick has greatly increased my self esteem. After pumping it is 7.2 inches (God is good).
2. Sex is no longer stressful. Knowing your dick will never let you down is priceless. A man's dick is always supposed to be able to perform. It makes him feel like a man. When I had ED so severe I had no self esteem. His ability to pleasure himself or his partner is Paramount.
3. My marriage has strengthened as my mood has changed and my wife is always satisfied. With my implant, I can go on and on and on. Pumping up increases and adds spice to post coital foreplay. Not every man can do what we can.
4. As I get older, I see my implant as a blessing rather than a desperate last resort. If I didn't have ED now, odds would increase with age. This is no longer a concern and never will be. Please understand these are my observations. You may or may not agree with me. I hope this will encourage anyone who is considering an implant. It will change your life forever.
