|Do I really want a penis launcher?

So, penis launchers.
Just for background: I get spam every so often. What happens is I'm a moderator on a list that needs to approve its members. As a result, I have to vet people on mails they send to owner-list. The owner-list is not one that is unknown to every spammer on the planet. Ok, so it seems to known to just a few. But as a result, I get a fair share of spam through that. Thankfully, Yahoo helps me out by tagging it as [spam] on the title. So far it's not been wrong. You'd think that Gmail, with its uber-shiny spam filter would pick up on this and filter it out. But anyway, I can see it and tell gmail to delete it.
But anyway, one of the mails I see is "[spam] penis launcher". I really wanna know, what the hell is a penis launcher?
I really have to ask, how does that get someone's attention so they say "Yes, let's read this spam, it's got a penis launcher, it's gotta be good!". What do you expect? Is it like some bazooka or something - and do you launch real penises or fake ones? Do you use different types of ammunition, like hollow point, or explosive tip?
Is the intent of such unsolicited emails to sell us such interesting devices - I eagerly opened on once, and found myself disappointed. I'd open one again, but I fear a double dose of disappointment, once with the content, and the second with myself and my belief that spam companies could change.
