“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.)
“My advice to men is that before they try any potions, creams, pumps or surgery, improve your technique. You will feel more confident and women will like you a lot more, at least in the bedroom,” says Dr. David Shusterman, MD, the Medical Director of NY Urology. A lot of men don't invest money into the right products that will improve the outcomes. “At every Duane Reade they have what I call a penis enhancement pack; it includes a penis ring with a vibrator on it. The pack is $10 and it will achieve what the men want to achieve without going through surgery,” says Dr. Shusterman. A lot of men want enhancement but it tends to only hurt your sex life, not help. “Most guys regret going through surgical enhancement,” says Dr. Shusterman.
The best ways to make the penis bigger naturally are to lose weight in the groin area and for men to do Kegel exercises. “There is almost as much penis inside the body (as an anchor) as there is visibly outside of the body. When a man loses weight, the exterior portion will actually be longer. I believe it is about 1/2"-1" for every 10 lbs lost. It is why often skinny guys seem to be more well-endowed,” says Yelverton. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor and the majority of men in studies report longer and stronger erections (which men often equate to size).
Streching devices and penis pumps are increasingly popular, often selling for hundreds of US dollars. We recommend staying away from these devices, because using them can lead to permanent damage of the cavernous body and blood vessels of your penis. In worst case, the usage of penis extenders can result in erectile dysfunction, the inability to get and maintain an erection. Although many surgeons, including our advisory team, keep warning about them, these warnings are unheard and ignored by many men. Reconstructive surgery for a penis damaged by excessive and wrong use of streching devices is very expensive and rarely results in full recovery.
Not really. “My personal belief, experience and view: There is a way to make the male penis bigger, but there isn't a single universal technique that would equally add X amount of inches to every man equally. Men, in their capitalistic frenzy to super-size everything in existence while ignoring the variety of insight offered from alternate possibilities of power, identity and potency, are fiendishly focused on having the biggest *insert protruding masculine status symbol here*, and miss out on so much more,” says Malcolm Lovejoy, who is based in Toronto and is an adult film performer.
Lengthening the penis. The most common procedure is to cut the ligament that connects the penis to the pelvic bone. This allows a little more of the shaft -- on average less than an inch -- to become visible outside the body. It's not really lengthening the penis so much as revealing more of what's usually hidden. To prevent the ligament from reattaching, a guy would need weights or stretching devices daily for about six months.
