Do you feel like your penis is hidden behind a fat pouch in the male groin area?
Is it stopping you from enjoying the simple things in life like buying clothes that fit, moving around naturally or having quality sex?
With over 32% of American men reported to be overweight, you’re not alone.
To help the millions of men out there, we’ve created this simple guide showing what causes this problem and the best methods to reduce that fatty pouch and start feeling attractive again.
What Causes A Fatty Build Up In The Pubic Area?
Before we begin to look at methods of fat reduction, it’s worthwhile looking at what may have caused the problem in the first place.
That way, you can tackle the problem from two angles; discontinuing the negative behaviours and adding new positive behaviours which will result in faster progress.
Rapid Weight Loss
Often, men get caught up in crash diets and weight loss FADs…while these programmes can give you temporary results, the hidden side-effects are rarely spoken about.
Rapid weight loss causes the skin around your abdomen to become flabby and loose. When the programme ends, most men tend to go back to their normal routine and put the weight right back on.
Naturally, the new fat fills up in the flabby area and results in a fatty pouch being created.
Our advice: if you decide to start a new fitness plan, don’t just focus on short-term results. By having a yearly goal (rather than monthly) your fat-loss will be much more natural.
Stress & Anxiety
When you get stressed or anxious, your body will release a hormone called cortisol which encourages the body to store fat in the abdominal area.
This is due to your body triggering a ‘fight or flight’ response and attempting to save energy for a later date.
If you get stressed on a regular basis, it can lead to a significant increase in fat levels around your abdominal area.
By far, the easiest way to reduce your stress levels is to get into a routine of having an early night of sleep.
This will help you feel more organised and in control of your day, resulting in less cortisol production.
Methods To Lose Pubic Fat
Now that you know the main causes of building up fat in this area, let’s get into the steps you can take to actively reduce it…
Change Your Diet
As most physical trainers will attest, changing your body starts in the kitchen.
Now, it goes without saying that - to lose weight - you’re going to need to eat fewer calories.
However, there are some types of food that will give you an added boost on your way to getting rid of your fatty pouch…
Foods Rich In Vitamin C
If you’re someone who tends to get stressed on a regular basis, then increasing your Vitamin C intake may be the answer to your problems.
Recent studies have shown that Vitamin C can help to control the release of cortisol; resulting in less energy storage and therefore, a reduced fatty pouch.
Here are some foods with a high concentration of Vitamin C:
Yellow bell peppers
Leafy vegetables (e.g. kale)
Citrus fruits (e.g. oranges)
Berries (e.g. strawberries)
Foods Rich In Omega 3
Another cortisol regulating substance is Omega 3. Studies have shown that you can significantly reduce your stress levels through the consumption of fish oil (rich in Omega 3).
“After three weeks of a diet supplemented with n-3 fatty acids, the stimulation by mental stress of plasma epinephrine, cortisol, energy expenditure, and plasma non-esterified fatty acids concentrations, were all significantly blunted,” the study revealed.
Here are a number of foods rich in Omega 3 that you may want to try:
Widely used amongst people with diabetes, cinnamon is an effective way to regulate your insulin levels.
The problem with having too much insulin is that it can lead to fatty deposits and result in a build up in your abdomen area.
The easiest way to add cinnamon to your diet is to put it to your tea.
Avoid Refined Foods
Understandably, this is a big ask, but it does go a long way in helping you to get rid of those fatty areas.
Why is it so important? Well, there are two reasons, actually.
Firstly, through the refining process, a lot of the nutrients get removed, making your meals less healthy!
Secondly, refined flours and sugars often get added to these foods in order to make them bulkier and tastier (without them, they’d be disgusting).
When you just cram empty calories down your throat, not only is your body going feel more sluggish, there’s a high chance that it could result in inflammation in your intestines, resulting in more of a fatty pouch too.
Instead, opt for fresh green vegetables, fruits, and zero-refined food and sugars.
Try replacing pre-packaged goods with things you take with you.
Rather than a chocolate bar for a snack, go with some almonds or cashews, which satiate you better and don’t have any sugars in.
Reduce Your Alcohol Consumption
Although this category could technically come under ‘refined foods’, few people realise the importance of reducing their alcohol consumption in fighting belly fat.
All alcoholic beverages are essentially empty calories that do nothing for the body, killing protein and metabolising as pure sugar as the kidney breaks it down.
Beer is the worst offender here, as it has many simple sugars that add to the overall caloric content.
If you have to go out boozing with the lads, drink vodka or tequila as these have the lowest in terms of calories.
Try swapping a glass of water after each drink too. This has a double effect of taking in fewer calories and also helping to stimulate the metabolism and burn some of those calories with the water.
Plus, it helps you avoid any hangovers you might experience the day after.
Exercises To The Lose Fat Pouch In The Male Groin Area
Finally, we get onto exercise. It’s an obvious one, but it only works if it becomes a regular habit.
By combining the exercises we’re going to show you with an increased level of daily activity, you’ll get rid of your fatty pouch in no time!
Scissor kicks are incredibly effective at blasting that lower belly flab off your body.
To get started just lie on your back with your legs straight and arms by your side and your palms facing down.
Lift your legs to a comfortable position, making sure that your back is firmly on the floor.
If you notice your back is arching you need to lift your legs higher until it no longer arches.
Bring your legs out to a wide “V” and then bring them in while crossing your right foot over the other.
Open them again into a “V” and then bring your left foot over the other.
Repeat while alternating which foot crosses over.
Reverse crunches will work your abdominal muscles hard, resulting in faster results than doing normal crunches.
Lie on the floor with your back flat and your palms facing down.
Bring your knees in towards your chest, then raise your hips off the floor and crunch your knees in with your toes reaching towards the ceiling.
Slowly lower your legs back down into the starting position and repeat.
Remember to use your core muscles to lift your legs and hips up so that you are correctly working your ab muscles.
Repeat this as many times as possible.
A leg raise is another exercise that can greatly impact the appearance of your abdomen, give you abdominal cuts and reduce your pubic area fat.
For this position, lay flat on your back with your shoulders and head resting on the floor.
Now, lock your knees and straighten your legs.
Place your hands under your butt and point your feet forward.
Slowly raise your legs and bring them up to a 45-degree angle (for beginners) and then bring them back to the basic position.
Repeat this for about 15 times and include it into your circuit if you can. Take a look at the video to better understand this position.
Pubic Fat Surgery
Surgery is very much a last option and doctors will rarely recommend it when losing fat can be achieved naturally.
With that being said, so you know what’s involved, here are the two types of pubic fat reduction surgery that available:
Most people have heard the word ‘liposuction’ before to describe weight loss surgery, but the specifics are rarely described (or well known).
In liposuction, an incision is made into a region of your body and a suction tube is inserted; fat is then removed through the vacuum.
As with any other cosmetic surgery, liposuction is very expensive with the cost typically ranging between $5,000 and $10,000.
The second procedure is called monsplasty and is actually a pubic lift. It essentially gets rid of any fat deposit or loose skin around your lower abdomen.
The procedure is also used to tighten inner muscles for a smaller and leaner groin area.
Usually, this is a follow up to a tummy tuck, but it can be done individually as well.
However, the procedure may cost you anything between $5,500 and $7,500.
Once your pubic fat area is gone either naturally or surgically, you need to make sure that you continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis.
This is the only way you can keep all that unwanted fat away.
Hopefully, this guide has helped to direct you on the right track to losing your fatty pouch and reveal your hidden penis.
Unfortunately, losing weight in this area can only help you so much as your penis won’t actually increase in size, more will be just revealed.
If you want to learn about the most popular types of penis enlargement, then just click here.
For thousands of years, men have been trying to extend the length of their penises using all sorts of contraptions.
Interestingly though, it’s penis weights that seem to get the most attention, flying in the face of warnings from authoritative voices such as the UK’s NHS who warn against their use.
Now, it might be a fair point to say that organisations such as the NHS are erring hard on the side of caution and for that reason, many people disregard their advice.
If you are interested in finding out the legitimacy of the claims made by manufacturers of penis hangers, then please read on as I’ll be covering exactly that in this article.
Plus, I’ll be discussing how they compare to other penis enlargement methods towards the end so don’t miss out on that either because it is highly valuable.
The idea behind penis stretching is that by gradually stretching the cells in your body, it will cause them to tear and, therefore, duplicate in a process called mitosis.
Over time, the duplication of millions of cells results in the growth of the region of the body that you have been focusing on.
By attaching to the tip of your penis and hanging whilst in a standing position, gravity will apply pressure, resulting in a stretch.
The weights come in a range of different levels with the idea that you will start on a lower weight class and work up to heavier classes as your penis gradually increases and you get used to the tension levels.
Do They Work?
I think at this point in time, that before we go down any anecdotal rabbit holes of success stories, it’s important to accept the fact that no clinical trials have actually been carried out on the use of penis hangers.
And, for that reason, it would be unfair to say for certain whether they have the ability to increase the size of your penis or not.
With that in mind, I do believe that there is validity in making a like-for-like comparison of a similar product category on the market that has been through numerous trials and has been proven to get results.
While the answer you are probably looking for is an emphatic yes, unfortunately, penis weights only work slightly.
Issues With Penis Weights
In fact, the amount of risk you will undergo in order to learn first hand the answer to: “do penis weights work?” will likely outweigh the benefits!
Penis enlargement weights can, and should, help increase the length and girth of your penis.
But, as I mentioned before, the process will only work if done correctly.
Your penis is made of a sponge-like tissue that expands with blood.
Not only does your penis lack the proper amount of muscle needed for significant penis girth and length gains, but hanging heavy penis weights can cause serious, permanent damage to your favorite organ.
In summary, to answer the question “Do penis weights work?”, I would have to go with a strong maybe, but only when done properly.
If you are a beginner, I recommend you check out my advanced list of safe and practical penis exercises for girth and length which is available here.
Although some people swear by their use, there’s a valid reason for government websites warn against them.
You see, if you hang these weights to the end of your penis, then there’s a fairly high chance that the weight distribution will be uneven.
This means that even though the device is technically working, the issue becomes more about possible complications.
There have been numerous comments from men who have tried penis weights and ended up with a curved penis.
Some have even suffered nerve damage in their penis, preventing them from getting the same pleasure levels as before.
Although there may be a chance that, by using a penis hanger that you’ll see an increase in your penis size, I don’t believe that it’s worth the risk, especially when you take into account the fact that there are alternative options available that have been clinically tested.
In particular, I’m referring to penis extenders, which I mentioned earlier on in this article.
Although they are more expensive than weights, I think the knowledge that what your doing is safety is worth the price
You may have noticed that there’s a whole host of different penis enlargement creams and oils being touted online recently, appearing on all sorts of website from the extremely dodgy looking ones to Amazon!
Additionally, these products have a huge variation in reviews with most of them sitting in the 5-star area or the 1-star area.
This screams out both ‘self-promotion’ and ‘scam’ to me.
However, I’m never one to just go along with the consensus and, as such, I’ve decided to look deeper into the validity of these claims made by these companies to find out what kind of results (if any) they can provide.
Make sure to read the whole article as there is key information at the bottom that will help you make a decision on the best penis enlargement method for your needs.
What Is A Penis Enlargement Cream?
First up, let’s get clear on what a ‘Penis Enlargement Cream/Oil’ is…
Right away, I find the name misleading.
You see, there are two ways of looking at any ‘penis enlargement product’.
They either work:
Permanently, by changing your penis size OR
Temporarily, by inducing an erection
And, it’s absolutely clear from the sales pitches that I’ve seen that many manufacturers of these products like to blur the lines between these distinctions with the aim of misleading men into buying!
So, let’s get clear.
There is no scientific evidence to suggest that by applying a cream or oil to your penis that it can permanently increase your penis size.
Just as with penis enlargement pills, which contain certain vitamins and minerals that can, indeed, increase blood flow to your penis, resulting in a harder erection for longer, there is a chance that creams may be able to do the same.
However, there have been no clinical trials to suggest that the intake of these vitamins through skin absorption will have any benefit over ingestion.
In the circumstance that these creams did have some benefit in increasing blood flow, there is still a fundamental problem with the marketing of these products that must be addressed.
Any company that makes claims that their cream can in any way increase your size (rather than just improve erection strength) is lying to you.
Therefore, if they are willing to lie to you so blatantly, there’s a high chance that they will also be bending the rules in other areas too.
Are the ingredients they claim actually in these creams?
Is the cream toxic?
Will you even receive the package at all?
It’s difficult to predict when the makers of these products are so well hidden behind fake companies.
If you do decide to try any type of penis cream or lotion, we’d recommend staying away from any supplier who makes claims that seem at all dubious or exaggerated.
How (Might) Penis Enlargement Creams Work
Although I’ve started off this article with a pretty harsh tone towards these companies, I only think it’s fair to give these products a chance by suggesting how they might work since there have been no clinical trials.
The main claim of these brands is that penis creams are absorbed through a biological process called osmosis where a liquid passes through a semi-permeable membrane (such as your skin) and becomes absorbed into the area.
Although osmosis is a well-known biological process, it’s difficult to tell whether or not that absorption through a particular area in your body, such as your penis, will have any effect on that area vs. just being absorbed generally.
With that being said, it’s common to rub arnica oil into certain parts of your body with the aim of relieving aches and pains, so it’s possible that this will have a similar ability to increase blood flow.
Another plausible way of looking at penis creams is that by they may include certain sensual smells that will induce an erection.
By this logic, you could have a nice candle, diffuser in your room or even some sensual lubrication and achieve the same result.
The Placebo Effect
Lastly, and probably the most plausible of the ways that these creams work is that, if your partner helps apply it, it will result in arousal.
This will subsequently result in an erection and the increase in the size of your penis too.
Now, it’s fair to say that no matter if the result is caused by osmosis, sensual aromatics or even a placebo - if it works, it works.
So, why knock it?
Going forward, let’s assume that osmosis is the method in which penis creams work…
It’s important that you are careful with the ingredients of these creams as some can potentially do you harm.
Dietary and herbal supplements aren’t regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which means these brands are pretty much free to say whatever they want about their supposed benefits.
Ingredients With Promise
L-Arginine & Pycnogenol
After numerous inclusive studies into the effects of L-Arginine in the late 90s, it was found in 2003 that by adding Pycnogenol(extract from maritime pine bark) to the dose, 92.5% of participants were able to achieve a normal erection after being deemed as having erectile dysfunction.
Note: if you have had a heart attack in the past, L-Arginine is not recommended.
One study found that the use of fenugreek was able to effectively increase testosterone in a sample of men.
In multiple clinical trials, propionyl-L-carnitine has been shown to both increase sperm count and mobility, increasing the chances of getting your partner pregnant.
Additionally, it has shown to have a positive impact on erection strength too, albeit in limited trials.
One study found that the use of Maca could increase sexual function, but the sample size for this study was very limited and suggested that more work needs to be done before drawing any conclusion on its effectiveness.
Using DHEA supplements can increase your risk of cancer, lower good cholesterol levels, and affect your mental health.
There is no research to support the use of pregnanolone in helping with erection strength. Additionally, it may negatively affect your mental health.
Catuaba Bark Extract.
This ingredient has shown some promise as an antidepressant, but no research has indicated that it has any effect on your ability to achieve an erection
Although hawthorn berry has been known to have some benefit in treating heart disease, it is not proven to help with increasing erection strength. In fact, it has been found that if you take too much, it can cause side effects such as dizziness and nausea.
In a 2011 study, it was found that 50% of participants were able to achieve a harder erection through the use of Citrulline. This was followed up with a 2018 study which added the use of Transresveratrol, however, the results were, again, insignificant enough to warrant any claims of success.
Additionally, in both of these studies, the sample size was very small and further exploration was deemed necessary before any conclusions could be drawn.
Panax (Red) Ginseng
A number of clinical trials have investigated the use of panax (red) ginseng and its effect on men suffering from erectile dysfunction with mixed results. However, a 2013 review by the NHS in the UK refuted the evidence as being unclear.
Although Ginkgo Biloba has become widely popularized through its addition to energy drinks as a way to increase blood flow, the effects are largely unclear.
The closest clinical study available is a 2008 look at how it affected sexual dysfunction in women, however, it was found that sexual therapy played a larger role in the alleviation of symptoms than Gingko Biloba.
Additionally, a Harvard Health study further denounced the use of Gingko Biloba for its use as a sexual stimulant.
Horny Goat Weed
Although its name may sound colorful, there’s no evidence that horny goat weed can affect your sexual performance at all.
Important note: all of the linked studied above have looked at these ingredients through oral consumption, not via the use of creams. There is currently no evidence that applying a cream will affect your erection.
Are These Creams Safe?
Largely, it’s fair to assume that these creams will be harmless.
However, if you’re currently using medication of any kind, you should be aware that the use of penis creams may have side effects.
One way to figure out if you will experience issues is to do a patch test.
This involves the following steps::
Rub a small amount of oil into your forearm.
Cover the area with a bandage.
Wait 24 hours and check for irritation.
If, after the patch test, you show no signs of irritation, it’s a good sign that you can apply it elsewhere. However, make sure to keep the cream well away from your urinary opening.
Additionally, make sure not to use any penis creams without talking to your partner first as it may expose them to allergens that they may not be able to deal with.
Therefore, it’s wise to give them a patch test too before you go ahead and have sex.
Hopefully, this article has helped you understand the use of penis creams and how they could potentially help you.
If you would like to explore more penis enlargement methods, I would strongly encourage you to read my full article on the subject which highlights some techniques that give permanent results.
Been scouring the internet in search of penis enlargement methods, but struggling to find a definitive source that presents all the information in an easy-to-follow way?
I was having that difficulty too.
I had spent 8 years trying to increase my penis size (mainly to boost my confidence) and I’d spent thousands of dollars testing out all sorts of different methods.
Some of the things I tried were stupid and painful, but in the end, I did end up increasing my penis size from 4.4 inches to 6 inches; going from well below average to giving a “pretty pleasurable experience” as one girl recently told me.
After I’d been through all that, I thought I may as well write a guide for all the other men who may be going through the same issues.
Hopefully, I can dispel some of the myths about penis enlargement and direct you towards the products that actually work.
What Is Penis Enlargement?
Although the term ‘penis enlargement’ does sound pretty self-explanatory, the truth is it’s pretty broad.
Technically, any product that increases the size of your penis is ‘enlarging’ it.
However, for the purposes of clarity, in the penis enlargement industry, there are two key different types of product:
Temporary solutions that work on erection strength
Permanent solutions that increase your size
The reason this distinction needs to be made is that many companies sell their temporary solutions under the guise of being permanent in order to make more sales.
Note: any brand in the temporary category making claims about being permanent size changes should be avoided.
Before we get into this topic, I just want to remind you that a lot of products in this industry make outrageous claims and therefore, should be taken with a pinch of salt.
With that in mind, there is a degree of validity to what they are saying, and many of the products do work.
The key issue many men have isn’t that their penis is too small, it’s that they can’t get fully erect. And, as a result, their penis appears smaller than it is.
There are really two causes of erectile dysfunction:
Mental problems (excessive porn use / masturbation)
A lack of blood flow to the penis.
Most erection dysfunction solutions aim to increase the blood flow in your penis.
First up, we’ve got the ‘penis pump’.
You might have seen this device in the film, Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery where Austin gets his bag checked at the airport resulting in an awkward but hilarious moment.
What’s not so funny is that the makers of these devices aren’t telling the whole truth when they say they can increase your penis size.
Penis pumps work by creating a vacuum around your penis which increases the blood flow, giving you an erection.

Supplements & Nutrition
Penis Enlargement Pills
Next knock-off is…penis pills.
With that being said, some of these pills contain certain ingredients such as Ginseng that can help to overcome erectile dysfunction by improving blood flow to the penis.
If you would like to learn more about penis enlargement pills, click here.
Penis Enlargement Creams
Last up, penis enlargement creams.
These products talk a big game about increasing your penis size, but the truth is they can do no such thing.
Penis enlargement creams are effectively a lubricant with a few extra ingredients that claim to cause a reaction in your penis and give you a harder erection.
However, it’s tough to say whether these ingredients are working or whether you just get harder because your partner has used some lubricant and is playing with your penis.
In 2017, a Swedish man died from penis surgery at just 30-year-old and the world was in shock!
Online, there’s been a lot of conjecture about the cause of his death as well as the risks of this type of surgery.
With it being the first case in thousands of operations of this nature where someone has died, it’s worthwhile exploring deeper to help uncover the truth to help men decide if it’s the right type of operation for them.
Through the proliferation of adult films over the last 30 years, men around the world have become much more aware of the size of their penises.
This has led to a trend towards methods of penis enlargement ranging from the absurd to the dangerous.
Of course, surgeons found a way to throw their hat in the ring and earn some money from this trend through a procedure known as penoplasty.
During this operation, two procedures are carried out. One involves the lengthening of the penis by severing a ligament at the pubic bone. The other involves the increase of girth by injection of fatty tissue into the penis itself.
This is where fat enters the bloodstream via a vein which results in blockage, resulting in a heart attack.
During the penile elongation procedure, the surgeon has most likely cut into one of the veins, opening up the possibility for foreign bodies to enter. Following this, the girth enlargement procedure’s fatty injection is likely to have leaked into the vein and resulted in contamination.
With around 2 ounces of fatty cells being injected, there was a high risk of complication.
In the case report, it was noted that fat embolism is a “rare, but feared complication” of liposuction and is more common after a traumatic event such as a long bone fracture or orthopaedic surgery (such as spinal surgery or hip replacement).
However, it was noted that because of the pre-traumatized tissue in the region, there was a higher risk.
