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.
As you rise to the occasion, your penis contains spongy erectile tissue that fills with blood, thus determining the size of your erection. Unfortunately, the tissue isn’t easily changed, according to Walsh. "These fibrous cylinders are fixed to the pelvic bone, and by virtue of being fixed to the pelvic bone, they are not easily manipulated,” he says. “They are fixed in place, and for most men, the length of the penis that they achieve through puberty becomes their maximum length.”
“Lots of them are placebos and gimmicks that are sometimes semi-poisonous. But I also do believe that extended time exercising the penile muscles will lead to increased blood flow, and over time, this increase may not diminish. Permanent damage has been done in the pursuit of modification to the body that is not the one we were born with!” says Lovejoy. Male pride is a rascally creature, isn't it?
“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.)
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).
