What is penis enlargement?

Penis enlargement is the process of permanently increasing your penis size.

Methods with no scientific grounding

The following methods are often highlighted in the media, but have no basis for their claims:

#1: Penis enlargement pills

Although there is plenty of evidence to show that penis enlargement pills can stimulate an erection by increasing blood flow into the penis, there is no basis for claims that they can permanently increase the size.

#2: Penis enlargement creams / oils

Much like pills, there may be an argument that creams and oils can be absorbed into the body and result in an erection, but there is no evidence that they can actually increase your penis size though.

#3: Penis pumps

Another commonly acknowledged way of increasing your penis size is penis pumps. This rumour took off after the film Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery showcased a pump in an airport scene.

The truth is though, penis pumps are not effective in enlarging your penis size. Instead, their goal is to help guys to get an erection by encouraging blood towards the penis.

Methods that work, but are dangerous

Although the following methods of penis enlargement can work, they are not advised.

#1: Penis enlargement surgery

Although penis enlargement surgery can increase your penis size and girth, it is only effective when your penis is flaccid. This means that you will gain no benefit from the surgery during sex.

#2: Jelqing

Jelqing is a form of penis stretching that involves using your hands to stretch your penis many times throughout the course of the day in order to stretch the cells in your body and cause growth.

Although penis stretching is a proven method of penis enlargement, there is a significant risk that the inconsistency of the jelqing technique can result in damage to your penis.

Many men have developed a penile curvature issue, known as Peyronie's Disease, after following jelqing programmes.

#3: Penis weights

Penis weights are a slightly more developed form of penis stretching. By hanging a weight to the end of your penis, a tension is created which stretches your penis over time.

There are two problems with this method though: 1) It's still not consistent enough to prevent damage to your penis 2) it's impractical to hang a weight from your penis and still live a normal lifestyle.

Note: if you are frustrated with having a small penis, don't panic. 

Instead, it's better to focus on learning how to solve the problem.

How to enlarge your penis properly

The device with the highest success rate for penis enlargement is called a penis extender.

They work on the same principles of jelqing and penis weights, however there is one crucial different; they keep your penis firmly strapped in place during use.

The benefits of this feature are twofold: 1) you are not at risk to developing a curved penis 2) you are able to continue your normal lifestyle even while wearing the device.

How much do penis stretchers cost?

Penis stretchers cost between $150 and $1000.
