Our Review process

When buying a penis extender, it can be tricky figuring out which features are most important.

As such, we’ve narrowed it down to the following six areas:

Step 1: Effectiveness

This might go without saying, but the starting point for selecting a penis extender really should be determining if it works or not.

In order for it to do its job properly, it needs to be able to firmly attach to the base and tip of your penis whilst applying an even tension level between 800g and 2000g.

Poorly made penis extender brands have a number of problems. Namely, the fact that they do not sit securely. This means that they will not apply the same level of stretch to both sides of the penis which could result in the creation of a curvature, also known as peyronie’s disease.

Additionally, if too little tension is applied then the penis will not be stretched enough to grow. Therefore, it’s important that you use a device that has a minimum level of 800g.

Step 2: Comfortability

While many devices do their best to highlight their tension levels (traction), they miss out on a crucial detail; the amount of time you spend using the penis extender is the most critical factor in getting results.

If it’s at all uncomfortable, then it will discourage you from using it and you won’t see any success.

From our experience, the following factors all contribute to the level of comfort you experience whilst wearing any device:

  • The angle that the device sits
  • The materials used
  • The situation in which you’re wearing it

Step 3: Durability

It’s all well and good buying a comfortable penis stretching device and using it regularly, but if it breaks during the first month of use, then you’re not going to make much progress. So, the next feature that you should consider is durability.

By testing each device’s ability to deal with varying levels of damage, we was able to get a gauge of how they could cope with wear and tear. On top of that, we read through thousands of customer reviews to make sure that our own findings were consistent with what was being said by others.

Step 4: Ease Of Use

If a device is inconvenient for you to use then you’ll be less likely to stay on the right track.

Step 5: Guarantee

Every company offers a money-back guarantee. However, not all of these guarantees are of equal value.

Some brands need you to jump through all sorts of hoops in order to get your money back, while others are much more lenient.

Step 6: Price

Lastly, we wanted to touch upon the price of these devices so you can understand what’s fair value and what’s overpriced.

Penis extenders tend to cost between $99 and $500 depending on the brand you go for and if you decide to purchase any additional accessories with them.

Considering the fact that the only other option, penile surgery, can cost in the region of $10,000 then this doesn’t seem too bad.

Frequently asked questions

What is a penis extender?

A penis extender is a traction creation device that attaches to the base and tip of your penis. By applying a constant and controlled level of tension, it will result in an increase in your penis size over time.

Outside of penile surgery, penis extension devices are the only clinically proven way of enlargening your size.

Is there any studies to back this up?

If used correctly, yes. All of the penis extension brands I’ve highlighted in this review have been through clinical trials with impressive results. With that being said, complications can occur if you jump start using the device at a tension level beyond your comfort zone.

I’ve also only highlighted penis extension brands that have: a) An FDA class 1 medical classification b) A European CE health stamp c) Approval from trained doctors d) Been through rigorous clinical trials

How long per day should you use the device?

It really depends on the brands you’re using. Some suggest up to 12 hours of use per day. However, as much as you’ve got to think about the length of use, it’s equally important to consider the tension levels you apply.

To maximize results, you should wear the device for as long as possible at the highest tension whilst still feeling comfortable. Instead of going full-on, we’d recommend a more balanced approach and building up tension levels and usage over time so that the process becomes easy.

Try using your device for at least 1-3 hours per day in the first month, 3-6 hours per day in the second month and 9-12 hours per day thereafter.

How do they work?

If you were to stretch a balloon, it would hold more air - these devices work in the same way. By attaching a strap to the base and top of your penis and applying a constant stretch along the shaft causing it to become longer, thicker and harder.

Will penis extension devices work if you’re circumcised?

Yes, being circumcised will not impact your use. One thing to note is that if you are uncircumcised, we’d recommend cleaning the device more regularly (every 2 days vs once per week) as there tends to be more of a build-up of bacteria underneath your foreskin.

How long does it take to achieve results?

It’s important to remember that everyone has a different penis size. For that reason, results are very much relative to the individual. If you’ve got a 3-inch penis, then even a half an inch increase will amount to a 20% increase in size.

However, if you’re wielding a 5-inch penis then half an inch is only a 10% gain. Success is very much dependent on the individual (as well as their expectations).

Additionally, you need to be aware that bodies react differently - some people will experience faster transformations than others. Now, with that being said, from numerous clinical trials, the average man was able to increase their size by 1 inch after 9 months of daily use.

Do they hurt to use?

Depending on which brand you buy and the manner in which they are used can cause different results. Some devices are more comfortable than others and easier to use.

Additionally, if you crank the tension levels on the device up to the max, then this may lead to some soreness. We recommend that you start off your penis enlargement journey on a low tension level to get used to it.

Will it increase your flaccid and erect length?

Yes, when the cells duplicate in your penis they stay stretched. That means that you’ll notice the difference both when flaccid and erect. This is a major selling point of penis stretching devices in comparison with penile surgery as the results of an operation are often lost over time.

Are the results permanent?

Yes, by applying a constant tension upon the shaft of your penis, it will cause an increase in the number of cells causing permanent results.

How visible are they underneath your clothes?

Each device is shaped differently so it really depends on the model that you choose. All the devices we recommend can be worn discreetly under boxer shorts and loose fitting trousers. The Phallosan Forte tends to be the best device at ‘tucking away’.

What happens if you continue to use the device?

Your penis size will continue to increase in size. Penis enlargement devices tend to only go up to 9 inches though, however, most men (and women) don’t want a penis bigger than this.

If I stop using the device, will it go back to my original size?

No, once you increase the cells in your penis through stretching, the results will be permanent.

Can you wear it whilst sleeping?

Yes, all devices can be used whilst sleeping. We’d suggest checking out the Phallosan Forte if this is you intend to enlarge your penis whilst sleeping. Click here for more information on the Phallosan Forte.

Does your penis need to be a certain size in order to use one of these devices?

This depends on the device you buy. Most devices are able to work with penis sizes from 2 inches to 9 inches. If your penis is smaller than 2 inches then penile enlargement surgery may be more appropriate for you.

Do they increase girth as well as length?

Yes, by promoting general tissue growth along the whole penis you will see an increase in length as well as girth.

Can penis extenders correct a curved penis?

Yes, the original creation of these devices was actually to help treat curved penis issues (also known as Peyronie’s disease). By stretching increase the cell duplication more on one side, your penis will eventually become straighter.
