  • I'll tell you right now (and I've got proof), that anyone who tells you "size doesn't matter to women" is flat out lying to your face and trying to make you feel better... Heck, just recently I asked a focus group of women via an anonymous online survey if size matters, and again and again they said "Oh my god, I HATE IT when it's SMALL." For a long time I didn't know what to tell the guys who'd write in to me and ask how to get "bigger." I'd say something lame like "Women actually like guys who are smaller... you just have to get good with your hands." Then I found "THE BIBLE of Penis Enlargement" by this guy named John Collins ★★★ https://tinyurl.com/getpebible2019
