Dont know. Tend to be suspect of most claims as they often are made by the people making a profit off of the sale. Until recently most Americans were rural and the most sexually active farm animal was the goat, which is why all the quacks in the early 1900's started implanting goat testicles into healthy men that wanted more vigor or better sex life. Of course, many became very sick, infected, scarred or died from the scam operation. Don't know but wonder if this where the name comes from. Would love to hear from others.
