Save your money. Go to the sex shop and get the adjustable constriction ring. They look like a lassoo made of surgical rubber tubing and have a bead that the loop goes through. It costs less than $10 and does EXACTLY what the actis band does. It seems hysterical that a "medical" company makes the same thing that sex shops have been selling for years and can charge a lot more!
Adjustable constriction rings are the best friend of every PCa guy battling ED. It turns the "almost there" into fully usable. Be sure to trim/shave pubic hair. All rings can rip hair out and ruin an otherwise great time.
