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.

Erection Hardening

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.

Penis Pumps

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.

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.

Permanent Options

Penis Surgery

Let’s start with penis enlargement surgery.

As you probably know, most people care about two things when it comes to penis size: length and girth.

Surgeons needed to create two separate procedures to enhance both of these:

First, you’ve got penis lengthening where a surgeon will sever the ligaments connecting the pubic bone and the base of your penis allowing it to drop down a couple of centimetres and appear bigger.

This doesn’t actually increase your size, it just reveals part of your penis that is hidden. And, it is only really noticeable when your penis is flaccid.

There’s also a risk that by cutting too deeply into the ligaments, it can cause your erection to lose its ability to stand up straight - which is kind of important.

The other part of penis enlargement surgery is to do with increasing your girth.

This is achieved by inserting fatty tissues that have been removed from other parts of your body into your penis, making it thicker.

This does work while flaccid and erect, however, be aware that the fatty tissue does tend to get re-absorbed into your body over time.

And, with surgery costs typically being well over $10,000, having a regular top-up doesn’t really make sense.

Especially when you need to take 6 weeks off sex after the procedure.

Unless you are having a mental crisis and need a bigger penis right this instant, then surgery isn’t very appealing.

Penis Stretching

That brings us to our last method which is called penis stretching.

It works by encouraging the cells in your penis to duplicate in a process called ‘cell division’. Which, over time causes your penis to grow in size.


There’s a couple of different versions of penis stretching with the oldest one being called the ‘arabic jelq’ and more recently, just ‘jelqing’.

In this version, you pull on your penis hundreds of times per day in as consistent a motion as possible with the hope that your penis will grow.

The problem with jelqing is that it’s difficult to gauge how much pressure you’re applying.

Sometimes, you can use too much and damage your veins and nerve endings resulting in erectile dysfunction.

Other times, you’ll apply more pressure on one side of your penis and cause it to become curved.

Both of these scenarios - you will obviously want to avoid.

Penis Weights

Some guys became aware of these risks and started coming up with solutions that would reduce the negative effects.

The first attempt at this was called penis weights.

The idea behind these devices is that by attaching weights to your penis and letting them hang, you’ll have more control over the level of tension.

But, there’s a problem.

It’s not exactly easy to wear penis weights and just stand in a stationary position for hours on end.

And, if you move, you’re going to shift the tension so your penis doesn’t get an even pull resulting in the same negative effects you had with Jelqing.

So, penis weights aren’t recommended either.

Penis Extenders

Now, here’s where penis enlargement actually made a lot of progress…

Around 30 years ago, a device was invented that allowed you to get the precision of jelqing and the consistency of penis weights even whilst you’re moving around.

These devices are called penis extenders.

Basically, you attach one end to the base of your penis and the other to the tip which results in a more constant pressure.

Because that tension is more controlled, you’ll get a steady, but even increase in size without harming yourself.

After these devices started going through clinical trials and seeing positive results, it became clear that this method was a winner.

When you weigh up your options… penis surgery vs penis extenders, it’s a pretty easy decision.

They are cheaper, safer and many of the brands offer a money-back guarantee so there’s really no risk.
