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.
Still, since size is so important to men, here are some elongation exercises that can help you make the most of your penis. Keep in mind that width is generally more satisfying than length, but if length is what you're after, here's how to get it naturally. More importantly, these exercises will not only increase the length and girth of your penis, they're good for you.
You can also try penis traction, a clinically tested method with a penis extender. “A penis extender applies traction to your penis and stretches it over a longer period of time — up to six hours per day. The constant stretch to which the penis is exposed, called cytokinesis, causes natural cell division, which results in a longer and thicker penis,” says Stacy Rybchin, founder & CEO of My Secret Luxury. Once your cells have grown and your penis size has increased, you will keep your extra penis length and girth forever.
And if you're worrying about your size pleasing your partner, remember that penetration is just one part of sex, and everyone's preferences are different. Many women don't even orgasm from penile-vaginal sex, for instance, and other people don't care very much about size or length. The size of your penis could possibly be unrelated entirely to your partner's ability to experience pleasure.
“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.

Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
