So, a lot of wasted money for non-permanent effect. It’s tempting, the sellers of those pills will show you doctors smiling from their websites, pseudo scientific studies from India they paid for, raving testimonials from famous pornstars but it’s just a huge scam scheme. It’s an extremely profitable business, selling cheap herbs for astronomical prices, combined with often shady long term recurring billing that’s hard to cancel. Bottom line: Penis pills are pure “snake oil” often made of cheap ingredients importet from China, overpriced and even potentially harmful for you health. Especially the contamination with heavy metals and carcinogenic colorings is a possible problem. Some sellers claim their products are manufactured in FDA approved laboratories, but this doesn’t mean the product itself is controlled by the FDA, like prescription drugs.
“The majority of men who come in seeking penile enlargement are average,” says Lipshultz. “I just don’t think men have a realistic idea of what normal is. Hence they think that they are below normal when actually they’re average.” (For the record, the average erect penis measures 5.6 inches, according to research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.)
The vacuum pump. This is a cylinder that sucks out air. You stick your penis in and the resulting vacuum draws extra blood into it, making it erect and a little bigger. You then clamp off the penis with a tight ring -- like a tourniquet -- to keep the blood from leaking back into your body. What are the drawbacks? The effect only lasts as long as you have the ring on. Using it for more than 20 to 30 minutes can cause tissue damage. This is sometimes used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, but has not been proven to actually increase the size of the penis.
