At the Sexual Health Expo this year I met with a dynamic couple, Mark and Lisa Schneider, who have created a brand new device called The Elator. It’s so simple, yet it’s quite revolutionary because it’s completely natural and custom fit for every penis. The trick is, you need to measure your penis so that they can send you your individual custom-fit Elator. So you can’t lie about your size!

We connected at my seminar for Sex & Disabilities where they were interested in reaching out to men with issues like premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer recovery or men with spinal cord injuries who could all benefit from The Elator.

I’m happy to introduce them to my Sexpert audience because I’m a great believer that any product that help people have better sex is valuable and can lead to a happier life. I interviewed them to find out more information on why and how they came to create the Elator.


Mark and I just celebrated 9 very happy years of marriage on September 20th, 2015. We decided to work together because we both share the same passion of the desire to become young entrepreneurs. I had been working in Corporate America for years holding demanding management positions that honestly became unattractive after awhile.   After having two beautiful children together and in order to find a healthy balance in life we decided to go for it. Being that I have 20 years of experience with sales and marketing and Mark had 20 years of design and R & D experience, we felt that our skill sets highly complimented each other talents, which is an awesome formula for success.


Mark’s father has a condition called Venus Leakage which involves the valve that holds the blood in the penis. When one suffers from Venus, the blood flow becomes weak and therefore he had challenges with erectile frequency. Mark’s Father researched external penile support device and found answers among a group of inventors. These inventors were looking for successful individuals that would take their product to market. The device was intriguing for both Mark and for a few reasons; we both lead healthy, natural lifestyles and natural products appeal to us. Being a happily married couple with a healthy sex life, we felt the desire to help other couples that may not be as fortunate. We believe that all couples should be able to be intimate, even those with challenges with Erectile Dysfunction. We felt that it wasn’t fair that only unnatural solutions were available to those that suffered. It was then that we knew we wanted to help couples all around the world and present them with a natural solution., The Elator.


There is nothing like the Elator on the market. The Elator is an ultra thin but durable wearable support device. It’s basically a support splint that allows men to have intercourse without an erection. The Elator has no side effects, which is very different than what other ED products face.

  • For example, ED pills and prescription medications are highly ineffective in roughly 30% of men and have a long list of dangerous side effects.
  • The vacuum pump does not allow men to achieve a full erection and leaves their penis only 80%-90% engorged for a short period of time, depending if a clamp is used.
  • Injections and suppositories are not always effective and are very painful to administer
  • Surgery is very expensive, invasive and come with great risk with many possible complications.



  • The Elator can be attached and ready for intercourse in less then 30 seconds
  • No reported side effects
  • Cost effective – A custom Elator is only $298.00 and allows for nearly 4 years of use
  • No risk of losing your erection
  • Allows you to have intercourse as long as you like even after ejaculation


  • Measuring your penis can be tricky. Approximately 25% of the time it requires an additional shaft.
  • Initial investment may seem a bit expensive for some men because it is not yet covered by medical insurance.
  • The gentle sensation of the shaft may take some getting use to for both the man or woman


It’s not required but some men choose to. The only area that could pinch or pull hair is where the back of the Elator attaches to the base ring.


As long as the man or woman is physically capable.


A woman may introduce the Elator to her partner as a simple and effective natural solution that has been especially designed for a healthy sex life. It can be encouraged for a simple way to have intercourse never like before. One that will increase intimacy within a relationship. It can also be positioned for those moments where by erectile frequency may be a challenge. Just by keeping in the night stand drawers helps the confidence levels to know that its there, just in case.


Communication is critical in any relationship. It is important for the man to share his feelings as to how important intimacy is when in a relationship. It is essential to include your partner when discussing options for ED treatment and possible ED solutions. Communication about ED may be uncomfortable, however it plays a significant part to relieve unwanted stress. Resilient communication creates a strong bond within a relationship for those struggling with erectile dysfunction. With each conversation, those involved may experience unexpected highs and lows. It is critical to have a loving, compassionate partner to be patient and supportive through the process. Physical connection is essential in any healthy relationship and this connection should be your end goal no matter what obstacles are involved. It is imperative to unite and agree that you are in this together and together you will prevail with the device.


How do I measure my penis? We have an online video on YouTube which addresses this question.

Will it hurt my partner? No, it will not hurt my partner. In addition, it is made with medical grade silicon which is safe for woman.


Our feed back has been consistent. Women say they don’t feel the front loop because it is gently tucked behind the head of the penis. Woman have reported they slightly feel the support bars on the bottom but it is not painful or uncomfortable. In some instances it actually feels like an erect penis.


The device is available worldwide. Due to its custom nature we ship everything from San Diego, California.


We are working on vibrating attachment to the base ring.

    Wow!  I have been diabetic for 20 years and have been unable to achieve penetration for 2.  I was ready to give up until I discovered this product.  The Elator, along with daily Cialis, has done the trick.

    "Amazing all around!  I had to think about making this kind of investment but sent for the measuring kit and ultimately decided to order. Literally three nights later I’m lying in bed with a silly grin, on my face, knowing this awesome device works!  It’s well designed and built, and incredibly effective while simple to put on and use. No injections, no tight constricting bands, and feels like normal sex. And... talk about speedy. Once you order something you want it immediately. Well, 3rd day after ordering, it was waiting in my mailbox. Thanks again for a great, speedy answer to ED."

    I have tried every single product available pills, injection and a vacuum pump all failed. I have been suffering from ED since 1995 that is when I had a Nesbit procedure and it ruined my penis right from the start worst thing I have ever done in my life. But this product works I highly recommend this to everyone suffering from severe ED or premature ejaculation. I can't say enough only wish I would have learned about this sooner.

    After the ED drugs quit working I started searching for an alternative to gain an erection again. The only thing I came across was having am penile prosthesis implanted, but the cost was just too much. So we resorted to using some types of adult toys. These helped but the feeling of intercourse and the closeness it brings was not there. About a few months ago, I stumbled on to the Elator through an article. I found the Elator website but was still not sure, as all of you know there are plenty of sites claiming to boost libido. So I did a scam search, and I found nothing. This is not to say there are some dissatisfied individuals, I just did not find them. What I did find was lots of men and women who were happy they had successfully used the Elator. I order it. When it finally arrived, I did not show it to my wife right away but tried it on to see how it felt. I was OK, kind of tight but not uncomfortable. So I finally showed it to my wife, she looked at it and said, Hmmuff and walk-away. Not deterred, I simply waited until she was ready. When we finally had intercourse, Boys and Girls, she enjoyed it and did not complain about the plastic ring which surrounds the neck of the corona gland. Thank you Elator

    I must admit the first time I tried the Elator it was with a great deal of trepidation. Even though I read through the brochure and
    watched your video several times I didn’t put it on 100% correct. But the second time I did everything right and it was
    absolutely fantastic! We hadn’t had intercourse in 10 years till we tried the Elator and it felt like we were on our honeymoon many years ago. I can’t see why anyone would use meds with all the side effects and costs involved when your product is as natural as can be with a 1-time expense. Thanks to everyone involved at the Elator company!

    My husband had issues both in getting and keeping an erection due to his surgery and hernia. This is the only device that really worked, and we tried several!

    After trying stay hard and they kept tearing I decide to try the elator. I am completely satisfied with it.  It made me feel 18 again.

    "Since I had my prostate removed 12 years ago I tried the pills. There were too many side effects so I was not able to take them. I experienced headaches, and my blood pressure was high. I saw the website for the Elator and decided to try it out. After the first time using it, I was very pleased with the results. It was comfortable to use for me and my wife. The DVD showing how to measure was very simple. We ordered online and within 4-5 days we received it. That was awesome, just in time for “date night”!  Thank you Elator 🙂"

    I just tried my Elator for the first time. I had prostate cancer about 16 years ago and have been using an injection drug since then. I always hated doing it, and when I went on Medicare and they would not pay for the expensive drug, I had to find an alternative.  I am very pleased with the Elator.  My wife was a bit worried at first, but she achieved several organisms, as did I. It fits comfortably and she did not feel it. The only thing I need to get used to is that the head of my penis used to get hard with the injection drug-- it is not with the Elator, obviously, but with lubrication, it worked just fine. I just wish I knew about the Elator years ago!

    Due to being diabetic spontaneous sex has been hit or miss. I've tried several medication approaches, which have worked, but I'm not happy with the side effects.

    I made it a priority to find a less invasive approach to ED. Through sheer luck, I stumbled onto the Elator. The product looked so simple, I had a why don't more people know about this moment. After getting the measuring kit - I made the decision to give the Elator a try. 

    Literally, within a minute or two it was on - and I had immediate results, that we're better than I expected. I'm still a newbie with the Elator but for the two weeks I've had this product - it's a game-changer for me.

    Neuropathy has made making love impossible.  We purchased a similar,  but less expensive device online which worked, but quickly broke.  The metal frame broke through the tubing, leaving a sharp, and potentially dangerous edge.  We decided cheaper is not better and purchased the Elator.  We are very glad we did.  The Elator works great, is easy to use and is comfortable for both of us.  This is the best sex has been in many years and makes me feel so good that I can make love to my beautiful wife of 46 years in the manner she deserves.  She said today, this is the best “sex toy” you have ever bought.  It isn’t a toy.  It is a real “game-changer.”  Thanks, Elator!

    I have had health problems and ended up[ with ED for the last few years. Didn't have much faith in this new gimmick but desperation will let you try most anything.
    The bottom line is.... my WIFE says "It was worth it!" And I agree.

    I love it! It really helped me get back the confidence I needed in the bedroom. I can finally be happy I'm fully satisfying my partner. 10/10!

  • Oct 21, 2019

    Great product and does exactly what you promote it will do. My girlfriend really enjoyed it and said she did not experience any discomfort.  I did need a second fitting as my girth was larger than I initially measured.  The process for a new refit was no hassle and easy.

    "After five years of trying to find a solution for erectile issues, the Elator has been the most successful solution.  After spending close to $2,000 on other ideas that did not work, the Elator was well worth the investment.  It has provided us with the ability for a more intimate experience than we've been able to since my prostate removal.  Thank you!"

    "I was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer in 2016 and the radiation and associated chemo therapy pretty much wiped out my ability to even get an erection, let alone maintain one. I tried many different options including viagra, a pump device and several generic pills which did not help me in any way.

    I was extremely depressed at the lack of intimacy I could offer my wife (we had a very good sex life for 30+ years of marriage) and the possibility that things would never be the same again.

    Your product, literally, saved me and us. Regardless of whether I can obtain any kind of erection The Elator WORKS. My wife and I both cried the first time I used the device and we were able to have intercourse for the first time in 3 years!

    And, yes, it gives HER tremendous pleasure every time!

    Thank you for helping me find the huge part of our relationship again!"

    "My wife and I have been looking for a way to rekindle our intimacy without all the side effects. This product works with or without an erection. My wife says that she couldn't tell I was wearing anything. We have intercourse in several different positions for an hour. After 6 yes 6 orgasms we were both totally exhausted. I couldn't do that when I was much younger. It takes literally seconds to put on and take off. Clean up is easy with soap and water and let dry. I would definitely recommend this product. As far as I can tell there are no side effects other than complete exhaustion. Give it a try."

    "I wish I had found this a long time ago. I have had ED since I was diagnosed with cancer 9 years ago. Side effects of chemo contributed to my ED. I also have Peyronie'ss disease. I have tried many treatments and devices to correct my ED. I was even considering surgery. I am so glad to have found the Elator. I have only used it a few times, but it has worked great with penetration and intercourse. Thank you very much."

    Your product is great. I had prostate surgery and it left me completely impotent. Pills no longer worked, but your product did. I was really skeptical when I ordered, but since I used it my wife and I are enjoying it greatly.  This has brought our relationship back together into a stronger one and has completely restored my self confidence.

    Thanks again,

    I would just like to say that i have explored most of the possibilities of a cure for ED. i do not like the drug option because of expense and potential health risk. i am at risk for cardio vascular disease and thus heart attack because of my family history. in fact, my brother had a heart attack which was partially due to taking viagra. so one day, several years ago i accidently discovered the elator as a result of a online search via google. i decided to order the elator and give it a chance. i was not disappointed with the results. not only does the elator cure e.d. but it also allows a man to last as long as necessary in order to bring his partner to MULTIBLE orgasms. also, the elator allows a man to have sex with his partner as many times as her heart desires!! basicly, the elator transforms an average man into a super stud! i kid you not folks. any man who is having difficulty in the bedroom owes it to himself and his partner to aquire the elator. it is a life changing device. the look in your womans eyes after you fulfill her needs in the bedroom with use of the elator is priceless! the most importent thing when ordering the elator is proper is critical. so be sure to order the measuring kit from good luck and happy trails.

    I suffer from Peyronie's condition (quite a marked curvature of the penis once erect) after a prostatectomy operation undergone several years ago. The Elator not only rectifies this condition, but my wife says she feels no discomfort while I am using it.

    Thank you for a successful outcome all around.



  • May 9, 2017

    I must say the Elator is a miracle! Very awesome and clever thinking. I am 56 years old and have had ED for at least 6 years. I have tried all kinds of treatments (viagra, cialis, hormone pills, injections, caverject) and none of them did any good, the only option was surgery in which I wasn't very willing. With the Elator my wife and I were able to achieve penetration during sex for the first time in 6 years. Though it slipped out a few times so I need to get a new shaft with a tighter girth, this was a big step for me which brought new hope, confidence and joy! I think I will also buy a tickle shaft very soon since the replacement shafts are a cheaper price.

    Since I have received and used the Elator, I am happy to report I have been able to maintain an erection long enough to satisfy my wife. Using the Elator, I know I am not doing any damage to my body and this will help to keep my heart healthy.

    Thank you,

    Pills just don't do an adequate job. The Elator gives you the firmness that you need. I suggest that you practice putting it on a few times to eliminate 'fumbling around' when you need it.
