For thousands of years, men have been trying to increase the size of their penises using all sorts of contraptions.

Interestingly, 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.

These organisations are playing it cautious to avoid lawsuits, so understandably you may take their advice with a pinch of salt.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are people who advocate their use to make sales, but leave out may inconvenient truths.

I've written this article because there isn't enough unbiased advice for people who are researching penis weights and I want to reduce the risk of anyone hurting themselves.

I'll be discussing the following subjects:

  • How body stretching works
  • How penis weights work
  • The problem with penis weights
  • Why Use A Penis Extender Instead

How Penis Stretching Works

Body stretching has been around for a long time (thousands of years) and has been used outside of penis enlargement to make fleshy body parts bigger.

Here are a couple of examples of its use:

Neck Elongation by indigenous tribes from South-East Asia

Ear lobe stretching by many different cultures around the world

We can clearly see that the process of body stretching works; there's no disputing the evidence.

Let's take a closer look at how it happens so you can get an idea of how it is transferrable to penis enlargement.

The Science

By applying tension to your penis, it will cause the cells to divide and grow.

Before penis elongation devices existed, the most common way to achieve this was to pull on your penis in a process known as 'jelqing'.

The problem with this technique is its lack of consistency. It's hard to tell how much pressure is enough. And, it's very easy to apply more on one side of your penis than the other.

As a result, many men have caused themselves irreparable damage to their penises making their lives difficult.

The most common issue is called Peyronie's disease. This is where curvature is developed in your penis.

How Penis Weights Work

Penis weights were invented in order to reduce the likelihood of adverse effects and achieve a more controlled stretch.

The idea is that by attaching a weight to the tip of your penis while in a standing position, gravity will apply pressure to the whole penis resulting in a stretch.

The weights come in a range of different levels with the idea that you will start on a lower level and work up to bigger weights as your penis increases and you get used to the tension levels.

The Problem With Penis Weights

Although some people swear by their use, there's a valid reason for government websites to warn against their use.

Firstly, there is a risk that the weight distribution will be uneven and the same problems will occur (nobody has perfect posture).

And secondly, standing for hours and hours every day with a weight attached to your penis isn't exactly practical.

There are very little things you can do whilst wearing penis weights so it's very difficult to maintain a regular habit.

Why Use Penis Extenders Instead

More recently, a device called penis extenders were invented.

The basis for how these devices work is the same (penis stretching). However, the key difference was the level of control you could achieve the placement of your penis and the level of tension that was applied.

In the 1980s, they passed numerous clinical trials and since then, millions of men have used them to safely increase their penis size.
