Take a glance at the Vital Info section of our website, and you’ll find a huge range of articles and advice on everything from sex toys to men’s sexual wellness. Of course, we’re not alone in creating and sharing this kind of information – but we strive to ensure the information you read here is the best available online.
In this guide, we’ll explain exactly what we do to ensure all the information on The Enhanced Male is interesting, helpful, and accurate.
To do this, we’ll cover the four main principles that our in-house and guest writers adhere to:
- Writing that’s done for humans by humans
- Strict fact-checking and research
- The use of reputable sources
- Collaboration with trusted experts
When you’ve finished reading, you’ll understand why these factors are so crucial to our business – and how they’ve helped us become one of the most trusted resources online for men looking for trustworthy health and sexual wellness advice.
Content for humans, by humans
A quick online search for sex toy advice or men’s health information will likely return millions of possible articles, blogs, or product suggestions. The trouble is, it’s often impossible to know whether knowledgeable and experienced writers create this information.
Unfortunately, the rise of AI writing tools has made sorting the good from the bad even harder. AI tools undoubtedly have interesting uses – but when used to write about in-depth topics, they simply recycle old information that can already be found online.
So, what makes us different?
The biggest factor is our chief writer and editor, Danny Garrett. Danny is a certified sexual wellness expert through the Eldorado Sexual Health Board with experience writing for a series of high-profile publications and businesses, including Marriage.com, Selfgrowth.com, and many others.
Danny’s expertise in sexual wellness is second to none. He uses his cutting-edge knowledge of sexual wellness research to make sure every word we publish is accurate and helpful. His position and connections also mean he’s got up-to-the-minute knowledge of everything happening in the men’s wellness and sexual wellbeing world.
Content that’s focused on your needs
The tens of thousands of people who visit The Enhanced Male every month all have different reasons for exploring our site. Some will be looking to enhance their sex life with new and exciting products. Other people are sometimes just here to read – getting detailed information and advice about men’s health issues.
Danny’s extensive experience means we can approach all these topics from your point of view. We can think about the questions you have and the answers you’re looking for. This makes it possible for us to give you detailed information that’s specific to your needs.
Research and fact-checking are critical in our process
Although Danny and our writing team’s knowledge is excellent, we don’t ever expect our readers to take us at our word when it comes to important sex and health questions.
As such, everything we write is based on trustworthy information taken from different trusted fields of healthcare and science, including:
- Sexology (the study of human sexual behavior)
- Pharmacology (the science of medications)
- Physiology (the science of anatomy)
- Psychology (the study of the human mind and its functions)
- Linguistics (the study of language and communication)
The difficulty with these fields is the complexity of the information they publish. We firmly believe that science shouldn’t just be for scientists – so we keep on top of everything that’s happening in these areas, then take the key facts and present them to our readers in an interesting and accessible way.
What does this look like in action on The Enhanced Male?
The best way to show our commitment to great research and sharing relevant information is to show how it works in our writing.

This isn’t a quantity-over-quality approach either. When we make reference to a study or source, we make sure that information is “peer-reviewed,” – which means the scientific validity of the findings has been checked by other scientists to ensure accuracy.
We believe our readers deserve the best information – so that’s exactly what we provide.
We approach everything we read with a critical mind
Science and opinion in men’s health and sexual wellness are constantly developing – so what was once fact can sometimes be disproved or challenged. Because of this, we have a highly critical approach to research, always looking for both sides of an opinion before we create any information.
By doing this, we aim to remove bias from the things we write. When different opinions or contradicting studies occur, we explain why this can happen, so you can fully understand the gaps in the current scientific approaches.
Critical thinking is an important part of helping people decide what’s right for them – so we’ll always do our best to make sure you’re getting both sides of a story. We believe that well-balanced and researched knowledge is the key to helping out readers make their own minds up on important issues.
