    I had read that Researchers I beleive in Europe had found a correlation with eating watermelon increase erection sort of like being a natural Viagra. Has anyone experience and increase ease or maintaining an erection due to over indulgence in the fruit.

    Okay now I don't mean "fucking the damn thing" so don't go there.
    Googled it and seem there are varying opinions on the research. :biggrin1:

    I liken to the conclusion for some that PE doesn't work and yet there are ample members testimony that it does.

    Quick search on the Internet - this is only a little more than a joke. From WebMD:

    Watermelon's Viagra-Like Effects

    On hearing about the Texas finding, Irwin Goldstein, MD, editor-in-chief of The Journal of Sexual Medicine, was underwhelmed. Suggesting a man feast on watermelon to boost performance, he says, "would be the equivalent of someone dropping a beer bottle in Minneapolis, where the Mississippi River starts, and hoping to see it make an impact on someone in New Orleans."

    "To say that watermelon is Viagra-like is sort of fun," says Goldstein. "But to even vaguely hope that eating watermelon will alleviate ED is misleading."

    "The vast majority of Americans produce enough arginine," adds Goldstein, medical director of Alvarado Hospital Medical Center, San Diego, and clinical professor of surgery, University of California San Diego School of Medicine. "Men with ED are not deficient in arginine."

    Though arginine is required to make nitric oxide, and nitric oxide is required to dilate blood vessels and have an erection, "that doesn't mean eating something that is rich in citrulline will make enough arginine that it will lead to better penile erections," Goldstein says.

    Goldstein has served as a consultant for many companies that make ED drugs.

    Calling watermelon a natural Viagra is "clearly premature," says Roger Clemens, DrPH, adjunct professor of pharmacology and pharmaceutical sciences, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, and a spokesman for the Institute of Food Technologists.

    Clemens studied the amino acid arginine himself, researching a supplement to improve vascular flow for patients with hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis. He has since abandoned that line of research, he says.

    It can require a lot of watermelon to boost blood levels of arginine, he adds. In a study published in 2007 in Nutrition, he says, volunteers who drank three 8-ounce glasses of watermelon juice daily for three weeks boosted their arginine levels by 11%.

    Watermelon is low in calories and provides potassium and the phytonutrients lycopene and beta-carotene, in addition to the citrulline.

    Clemens' advice on watermelon and the Fourth of July? "Put salt on it and enjoy."

    Just don't expect fireworks anywhere but in the sky.

    As much as I like doing research and browse the Internet, tha vast amount of information on any topic can be overwhelming, like wise the vast mount of knowledge on LPSG is commendable as we have a broad spectrum of knowledgeable people here who can easily discern between the likely and ridiculous.

    When I heard of this much of my use of this information has been in gist in response to a one line comment or sarcasm. So knowing more facts are useful and I thank you for sharing what u have shared.

    Funny I always thought the Mississippi starts at Lake Itasca, a couple hundred miles northwest of Minneapolis.

    I'm guessing he knows as much about geography as you do about medicine. Certainly he's plenty close enough for the purposes of the discussion.

    Whew! What a relief! I thought that one of you was sticking a watermelon up his butt to get a larger, and harder erection.

    It is probably a joke with racial undertones.

    Proper hydration me thinks; what makes melon so good. Put two and two together about people catching a cold in the fall and winter, when they're not drinking enough water 'cause they don't get as thirsty in the cooler weather; a mild dehydration weakens you enough to get sick.

    You want to have stamina in bed? - drink water

    I've heard you have to consume about 1500 pounds of watermelon to have the hardon effect, and by then, who the hell would want to fuck.

    A botanist once told me that watermelon was the most nutrient-rich fruit.

    That claim always gets attacked, though.

    You've got two questions from what I can see.

    1. Does eating watermellon increase your erection strength.
    2. Does it make your penis larger.

    The answer to 1 is possibly, but its most likely more of the water effect.

    The answer to 2 is No, watermellon won't cause your penis to grow more than its normal erect size.

    from what I've heard (from a traditional medicines practitioner), watermelon has cooling property (or yin fruit in Chinese traditional medicine), it may tame your hard on, not promote it by the way!!

    so please think twice when you read some research 'news' today!!! I think watermelon has been grown too much and is now over the stock, so it needs a way to sell or the right word, upsell!!

    what between the lines is ... upselling the over-stock watermelons in the market! (sorry, I have to be very sincere to say this out loud!)

    yes! it's marketing from the agricultural industry!!

    more news regarding the research on this watermelon,
    citrulline - helps protect skin from the UV (I think it maybe right as if you have some beta carotene and lycopene from those reddish, tangy produces like carrots, tomatoes, it helps protect your skin from UV rays)

    what else? you can see how this marketing behind the research today works in our daily lives.

    sex and beauty are the most attractive issues in the upselling anything (in this case, viagra for men, skin cancer protection for women, so the end of the day, all watermelons sold for everyone, how smart! just one research news release makes all the produced wiped from the shelf!!!!!), so think twice or more than twice when you read news today, then learn more, don't just believe it right away!

    I never done a watermelon, way to big, and such a hole will cause some people to start looking weird at me if they ever saw that. I will have to admit that I do sometimes use a holed out cucumber, and warm it up for a few seconds in the microwave. That's by far the weirdest thing I ever done, felt great to though :tongue:
