Penis exercises, often referred to as jelqing, were already used in ancient Egypt as a method for penis enlargement. Since these origins they have constantly been improved and optimized for effectivity and safety. While the multi billion dollar pills and expander industry that’s trying to sell you their overpriced herbs or pulling devices claims these methods don’t work well, they actually do. Reputable training programs like the “Penis Enlargement Remedy” helped thousands of men to increase their penis size.
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.
• 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.
Penis pumps and vacuums are popularly used as sexual aids to promote erections in men. They are also used by some with the intent of increasing penis size. These devices are placed over the penis (and sometimes the scrotum) and use suction to engorge the penis with blood. If used consistently over a long period of time, they can cause the skin of the penis to become "spongy" and have a thicker appearance.
Even technology is offering some help, let’s call it digital male enhancement, although some people may qualify it as cheating: An android app called “RetouchMe” is offering retouching services for your face and body and explicitly includes an option to virtually get a bigger dick. Sample photos only include dressed men with a big bulge in their pants, a bit silly in my opinion, but judge yourself. Use at your own risk and always remember, making promises you can’t keep on Tinder, Instagram or your favourite dating site may result in disappointed women and that’s not what real enlargement is about.

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.”
Testosterone injections — or making sure your testosterone levels are healthy — will help with erections and sex drive. “I am not sure if it can actually increase size. My opinion is that it could slightly increase size, if the man was severely deficient and then his testosterone levels were balanced. Mainly because he was probably not getting fully aroused with low testosterone, so when it is increased, he would seem bigger. Trans men do however experience clitoral growth when given testosterone, making the clitoris look like a mini penis,” says Yelverton.
If you want to increase the size of your penis, there are several herbs you can use that may stimulate blood flow to the area and temporarily help it get fully erect. More permanent natural solutions to increase its length and width include making dietary changes, getting more exercise and losing weight around your midsection. Much simpler and safer than surgical enhancement, right? See Step 1 to learn more about how you can make your penis larger without resorting to drugs or surgery.
There’s not much evidence that the food you eat can actually change the size of your penis. However, eating a healthy diet can improve blood flow, helping you achieve bigger erections. Losing belly fat can also help your penis look bigger. Stick to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. Avoid lots of high-fat foods, like cheese or fatty meat.
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.
A penis enlargement procedure may be indicated for a man who has experienced penile trauma or has a medical disorder that affects the function of the penis. In cases where penis size affects fertility or quality of life, penis enlargement may be considered under the direction of a urologist. These include surgical procedures known as penile augmentation (a.k.a. augmentation phalloplasty).
