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 2006 study published in the journal Psychology of Men & Masculinity found that men are much more concerned about their penis size than their partners are. While many men wonder if they’re big enough, 85 percent of women in the study said they were satisfied with their partner’s penis size. Only 14 percent wanted their partner to have a larger penis.

Apart from the risks, penoplasty (surgical penile lengthening and girth enhancement, often by releasing the penile suspensory ligaments, so just an optical improvement) is the most expensive way for penile enhancement. According to About Health it ranges from $4000 up to $17000. If you are interested in surgical enhancement, we recommend reading the in-depth article on Medscape about possible surgical techniques and results. There is a less risky new method, the FDA-cleared Penuma implant developed by my collegue Dr. Elist (James Elist, MD) for flacid size enlargement, but the erect size lengthening is minimal and the cost is in the low five digits, too.

“Many men think that the hardest and thickest they can get it just by letting nature take its course and when that blood reaches the penis they get an erection and it ends there. I don’t think that’s the case. It’s like working out in the gym. You will have a whole different workout and your muscles will respond (and look) differently when you have taken a pre-workout, creatine or some other supplement — your pumps will be bigger and your muscles will look fuller. Well the same goes for the penis: if you pop a pill or pump it with a hydro or air pump, you will surely see a difference,” says Debois. The Extenze is one of those popular penis/erection supplements.
After warming up process, you will move to the lubrication exercise, which is one of the most important ways to increase your penis size naturally. In fact, you can find out a lot of lubricants to enlarge penis size, but the usual method is to use petroleum-based or water-based lubricants. I recommend lubricant oil, which includes botanical extracts, vitamin complexes, and antioxidants that go straight into the tissues of the penis for fast, targeted, immediate results. Remember that water-base lubricant can be dried out fast, therefore, you should put the lubricant during the exercise.
• Exercise counts. Exercise improves arterial health, allowing more blood into the penis. But exercising the penis itself is pointless. The sex media sometimes refer to the penis as the “love muscle,” implying that like the biceps, certain exercises can buff it up. But there are different kinds of muscle tissue. The penis contains smooth muscle, not the kind that gets bigger with exercise. Lose the big belly, because a big belly encroaches on the base of the penis, making the organ look smaller. Lose abdominal fat, and your penis looks larger.

• Forget enlargement products.. Three simple words: Waste of Time. Well, three more words: Waste of Money. They are expensive, and 99% of them are clinical frauds. No pill, potion, device, or exercise can permanently enlarge a penis. Some may give you other effects, like tingly down there or increased heart rate, which will have you THINK that it’s working, but it’s really now.


Some men seek injections of natural and synthetic fillers to increase the girth of the penis. Others seek surgery if a smaller penis size or penile abnormality (like hypospadias) is interfering with the ability to urinate or quality of life. Small penis size usually is not an indication for surgery to treat infertility. In such cases, assisted fertility procedures may be the better option.
