Hi Folks, interesting conversation going on here! The use of magnets dates back to at least 2000 BC in China. As you all know, alternative forms of therapy that were scoffed at years ago, are now paid for by most medical insurance carriers...take Acupuncture for example. In my lifetime I have seen the acceptance of this therapy grow to the point that traditional medical practitioners send their patients to Acupuncture professionals on a regular basis. And those who receive treatment report unexplained benefits beyond what the medical community could do for them.
China has practiced alternative therapies for centuries, and magnets have been a big part of their beliefs. Magnets have been found to relieve pain, restore energy, and increase sexual energy. With regards to sexuality, the Chinese believe that magnets center the energy of the spine and increase the flow of testosterone and progesterone.
We know that alternative therapies are not for everyone, but we have traveled extensively throughout Asia and see the power that is placed on these therapies. It's ok to see it as a "gimmick," but a billion Chinese would tend to differ with you on that. The plus side to this debate is these are all high quality, stretchy TPR enhancers that maintain an erection, and provide stimulation for a partner...so on that level, these are great accessories. The magnetic feature, in my mind, is a bonus...you can say that all or some of the alternative therapies that are practiced in Asia provide a positive approach to wellness. The user's state of mind is a big part of centering the healing powers and benefits to a focal point that ones own beliefs tend to cause or create the benefits...however you look at it, these products were created by the Chinese who understand the power of the magnet, and we respect their years of following these methods.
So...I guess it just boils down to beliefs. For us, we put products out in the market to cover all price points, benefits, functions, and wellness properties. The final choice is left to the consumer, and when we look at our sales after a two year life cycle, we will then decide if it worked or it didn't.
