Added Dimensions Publishing, established in 1987 by Gary Griffin, is dedicated to distributing the latest in male sexuality research in a clear, straightforward manner, with a dash of humor.  The response to Gary Griffin's first groundbreaking book, Penis Enlargement Methods was so enthusiastic that his readers asked for more, prompting research in other related areas.  This eventually resulted in a complete catalog of thirteen books.  The goal is to take the mystery and taboo out of male sexuality and to help every man by providing factual information about his body and its function.  As the Executive Director of the American Academy of Phalloplasty Surgeons, Gary Griffin witnessed an amazing increase in interest in the subject of male sexuality that shows no signs of abating.

About the Author: Many doctors refer to Gary Griffin as the Ralph Nader of penis enlargement.  A staunch consumer advocate, he lets his readers know the truth about a variety of procedures and other practices.  In the interest of benefiting the patient, Gary formed the Association of Phalloplasty Augmentation Surgeons to provide a forum for doctors to exchange information and network with each other.  Nobody has networked with doctors and stayed on top of developments like Gary Griffin, and his books are highly recommended.
