About Sensum+® and Reduced Penile Sensitivity
Sensum+® is a non-medicated cream which moisturizes the head and shaft of the penis for enhanced feelings of sensation and greater sexual satisfaction. It is a patent-pending blend of essential oils and ingredients generally recognized as safe that recently commenced marketing in the U.S. The safety and efficacy of Sensum+® was evaluated in two post-marketing clinical survey studies in circumcised and non-circumcised men. A total of 382 men used Sensum+® twice daily for 14 consecutive days followed by once daily for eight weeks and as needed thereafter. Study participants reported a ~50% increase in penile sensitivity with the use of Sensum+®. For more information, visit www.sensumplus.com or www.sensumplus.co.uk for UK customers.
Reduced Penile Sensitivity (“RPS”) results form a gradual loss of penile sensitivity over time. RPS is observed in diabetic patients, patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, 20% of patients undergoing hernia surgery and circumcised men.
