Penis enlargement is defined as all means and methods used to temporarily or permanently increase the size of the erect penis and its erectile tissue. Often the word is used in conjunction with a surgical penis enlargement, but it is not limited to surgical means and also includes manual training like jelqing, certain foods and supplements, devices and pumps to stretch the penis.
“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.

Consider ginkgo biloba. This herb is often taken to boost memory, but it also help with blood circulation and may enhance blood flow to the penis. According to a study conducted at the University of California, ginkgo is most effective at helping men on anti-depressants that can lead to sexual dysfunction. Another study found that gingko had no effect. Scientific data is inconclusive, but since gingko enhances memory and has relatively few side effects, it might be worth a try.


No, there’s no evidence that essential oils can change the size of your penis. If you decide to try an oil anyway, do a patch test on another area of your body (such as the inside of your forearm) to make sure you don’t react badly before applying it to the sensitive skin on your penis. Avoid getting any oils in the opening of your urinary tract, since this can cause irritation. Always tell your sexual partner if you’re using oils on your penis, since the oils might irritate them or cause an allergic reaction.
Neither food nor any supplements influence penis growth or size. That’s the reason why all the so called penis pills offered on the internet simply don’t work at all, don’t believe all the fake promises. All those pills increase the blood flow only, which may cause a harder erections, but the effect instantly stops once you stop taking those pills. We examined and tested dozens of different pills over several years, none of them was able to deliver permanent results.

In contrast to common believe, the small penis syndrome is a mental disorder, subsumed under body dismorphic disorders (BDDs) and/or anxiety disorders. Basically, it’s a wrong perception of the own body, Men affected by it believe their penis is way too small, are almost obsessed by this thought, although their manhood has a normal length and girth. While the symtoms are very severe, including depression, anxiety and isolation, it’s a very rare psycological disorder. It’s often triggered by very negative personal experiences, e.g. rejection by a woman and other sexual problems. In case you think your penis is tiny, but has normal measurements, seeking professional help is recommended. There is also a very detailed article by clinical psychologist Ph.D. Mark Dombeck on MentalHelp we recommend for more details about SPS, characteristics and treatment. He points out: “It appears to us that some men have perfectly adequate penises, based on the measurements they’ve communicated. These penises are not going to break any world records, but they are probably just fine, however, these men are firmly convinced that they are hopelessly inadequately small.”

The side effects of lengthening surgeries are numerous and include infections, nerve damage, reduced sensitivity, and difficulty getting an erection. Perhaps most disturbing, scarring can leave you with a penis that's shorter than what you started with. Widening the penis is even more controversial. Side effects can be unsightly -- a lumpy, bumpy, uneven penis.
