Only one-fourth of the women bought them online and they had nothing much to say except that it was more convenient given the station of life they were in.

Almost all of them sans a couple of them and both men said that they were satisfied with the result that the supplements gave and they were regularly buying more of the same stuff. Eye-opening? You can read this post for more info. Here is the link!…
