The average flaccid penis is between 3.5 and 5 inches long and 3.5 inches around, while the average erect penis is a little more than 5 inches in length and 4.5 inches in girth. Some men feel inadequate, even though their penis size is perfectly normal. Nearly 70% of men say they’re not happy with their size, and about half wish they could be larger.
Even in reputable studies, the statistical average varies, US median is about 5.5 inch according to the biggest study (1661 sexually active men) we could find by the well known Journal of Sexual Medicine. Most men have an erect size between 5 and 6 inch, so below 5 inch can be considered small. This data matches my own long term experiences as an andrologist. Don’t be fooled by the penis sizes you often see in adult movies, all actors are selected individuals far above the average size. These movies certainly don’t depict any statistical average and also use visual tricks to make the manhood of the male actors appear even larger. Nevertheless, many men ask themselves how to get a bigger penis the natural way, without any unnecessary risks and dangers.
The one thing that can be a little confusing when first using the device is knowing how much traction you should start with. Too little and you see gains, too much and you’ll hurt yourself. Here’s a simple way to determine how much to use: In a flaccid state, take your penis and stretch it. Add 1 centimeter to that and that is where you stop the device. So 1 centimeter above a stretch. Don’t over stretch. Remember the key is to be consistent, not super man. It is not a contest. If you stick to it and do it properly, you’ll win by adding at least a couple of inches to your manhood in less time than it takes for a season to change. There you have it, that’s how to grow your dick safely and effectively.
A great thing about supplements is that if the right brand is chosen, it can produce noticeable improvements naturally, without any side effects. A lot of new changes have gone into the world of supplements, making it a more reliable and useful way of experiencing benefits. This is also the safest possible way to increase penis size since there’s now ingredients supported by real clinical studies.
The easiest way to stick with a routine is to make it as easy as possible on yourself. For example, if you want to get fit, you may want to consider buying a gym membership that does laundry for you (at a small extra cost), so that that you always have work-out clothes, and decrease the possibility of missing a workout – prevent yourself from having an excuse like, "Oh, well I don’t have clothes today, I’ll just workout tomorrow."
Like extenders, pumps are suitable for all kinds of users. However, while extenders affect length alone, pumps affect both length and girth. Also, you have to allocate a certain time per day for a pumping routine. Intermediate users usually add 10-15 minutes of pumping time to their workout while advanced users can prolong the duration to half an hour. 2-3 rest days per week are required to facilitate recovery.
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).
First of all, we have to define what small really means and what statistics apart from any personal impressions and taste actually say: The flaccid size is irrelevant, some men have a rather small penis growing to enormous size when erect, on the other hand there are men with a rather impressive flaccid penis that just erects itself when aroused and doesn’t grow much in girth or length. Flaccid and erect size don’t correlate.
Depends. Some methods seem to be getting better responses than others. “Studies are being done to improve male girth through injections of hyaluronic acid, which is used as a filler (and is used in orthopedics to improve knee arthritis),” says Dr. Steve from SiriusXM's Weird Medicine on FactionTalk. (Here's a study that supports what Dr Steve is talking about). “The average vagina is 4 inches deep, so girth is much more likely to enhance pleasure for the woman than an increase of length, given that the average male penis length is approximately 5.5 inches,” says Dr. Steve.
When you do Kegel exercises, you can target, train and strengthen your pelvic muscles. “Strengthening your pelvic muscles improves sexual performance, reverses or prevents erectile dysfunction, promotes urinary health (incontinence and overactive bladder), and benefits prostate health by providing increased blood flow,” says Rybchin. “Once you achieve initial pelvic muscle strength, you then add the resistance training — a resistance ring and weights. As you get stronger, you then add the additional weight.”
Contrary to popular belief, your penis is not a muscle, nor does it contain a bone. It's better to think of it as a kind of sponge, which, when flaccid, is soft and malleable, but can quickly become engorged when filled with blood. Two large cylindrical chambers, the corpus cavernosum and the corpus spongiosum (see?), fill with blood during arousal, causing your penis to harden and grow in size.
A high-quality penis sleeve can provide extra length and girth. “It can also be of help when a man has difficulty maintaining an erection. The problem with many sleeves [...] is that they are made of toxic chemicals and/or are porous, so they can hold bacteria and germs, even HPV. If a man is with multiple partners, these would not want to be shared. My client with lifelong ED swears by his silicone sleeve. Even with his penile implant, he says his wife enjoys the extra length,” says Yelverton.
Definitely yes, if you have a big or small penis is mostly defined by your genes. Sons of men with a large penis often have a large penis. Sons of men with a small penis often have a smaller penis. There are certainly exceptions, but in general genes are very dominant when it comes to erect penis size. From my own experience and research, genetics are the most dominant factor in size, environmental factors or lifestyle only have very limited to no effects.
“I have personally recommended this to men and I have received lots of great feedback regarding its long(er) term use. It’s a hydropump, so it works by using water when you’re in the shower or bathtub. To fully understand this, it’s important to know that the penis has three soft chambers, the corpora cavernosa (two large one’s on the top of the penis) and the Carpus Spongiosum (a smaller one on the bottom of the two). When these two fill with blood, you get an erection. What Bathmate or a penis pump can do is expand these chambers, thereby allowing more blood to fill in."
Don't bother with stretching or weight-hanging. These two techniques are said to lengthen the penis, and in some cases they do. But the longer it gets, the thinner it gets; both methods cause the penis to lose girth as it stretches out. The only time to use a penis stretcher is after having surgery, when it's necessary to prevent the accumulation of scar tissue.
Being fit and at a healthy weight has a lot to do with how a penis appears and performs (more on that soon) but it also has a lot to do with what we eat. For example, foods like onions are said to increase healthy blood flow and circulation — including to the penis! Salmon is known for this as well, and so are bananas (we’re trying not to make a pun here) and dark chocolate. Also, foods high in protein (say, like eggs or low Greek yogurt) and proper hydration can only work in your favor.
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.
