ExtaMax Infomercial Review and Videos Now Online

I’ve written a full review of the ExtaMax, the most shameless male enhancement infomercial yet.

Check it out: Review of the ExtaMax infomercial. And don’t miss the video clips at the bottom of the page.

There is one thing, however, that I left out of my review. During the “Men’s Minute” segments, stock photos appear in the background. These are labeled with the words, “Actual Disappointment,” “Actual Hopelessness,” or “Actual Happiness.”

The images are obviously stock photos, so it is a questionable claim that the models in them are feeling “actual disappointment,” etc. Even if they were having these feelings it would have nothing to do with ExtaMax or with the inadequate size of a male endowment.

  • Yeah, “the crotch grab.” Good idea. When a man does that to a woman, it’s called assault.

  • They should just called the infomercial “Skanks Like Big Weiners” and get it over with.

  • On an unrelated note, is anyone planning on attending the Snuggie Pub Crawl in their area? I want to attend the event here in SF, but fear that my Snuggie will not ship in time.

  • This reminds me of an earlier post of yours where you talk about excessive random cleavage in infomercials. I guess it’s more appropriate in a “male enhancement” ad than it is for some get-rich-quick scheme, but still….

  • I am not quite sure what is more stupefying about this infomercial. Is it the blithe inanity and uplifting of pure, unadulterated sluttage to intimidate poor schmucks into buying? Or is it the probable and disturbing fact that a considerable audience of poor schmucks exists that value the insights that female waste-products such as these spout out on late-night television?
    It’s one thing to look at an infomercial and become bewildered at its foibled attempts to draw money from more-or-less normal audiences and the public at-large. It’s quite another–and this is what we have here–to be astonished by the fact that a portion of the public actually exists that would exhibit a buying response favorable to the producers of an infomercial whose tactics are so tacky and tasteless as to defy reason.
    All male enhancement infomercials shed light on the opinions of loose & easy women to make a buck. It’s unavoidable. But Extamax reaches a new level of sluttiness and skankhood that somehow manages to blatantly bash men and allure them (the most idiotic of them, anyway) at the same time. I couldn’t agree more that this is “the most shameless male enhancement infomercial yet.”

  • I cannot believe how offensive this commercial is…to men, to women, to EVERYBODY. Who in the world were they trying to reach with this kind of crap?

  • Yeah, “the crotch grab.” Good idea. When a man does that to a woman, it’s called assault.

    I should call assault on that if a woman does that to me and says that she doesn’t want to sleep with me because I am not able to give her an adequate daily supply of meat, I should take her to court for damages to my well being.

  • If there were a vagina infomercial..and obligatory bashings im sure N.O.W. would be picketing the company etc..but we live in an age where its open saeson on the male speceies and the internet is the vehicle women and alot of companies use to gulit men into buying their products==special place in hell for people like that.

  • This is not only offensive to guys because it assumes that all we think about is our dicks and it states that ALL women only care about how thick your wallet is and how big your bulge is. It’s also an amazing coincidence that the infomercial is dominated by women with big boobs and skimpy clothes that talk guys down the ENTIRE time. I didn’t even care to watch this. it just came on on comedy central at 4 in the morning but it really pissed me off. This infomercial depicts half of what is wrong with society. who cares about feelings, love and relationships when we have SEX! Sex is great but it shouldnt be the only thing we care about!
