Studies suggest that when erect, the average adult penis measures around 13cm in length and 10cm to 12cm in circumference. It might be comforting to know that a penis that is smaller when flaccid may be a similar length to that of a larger flaccid penis when both are erect. But measuring your penis isn’t going to change its size, so ask yourself, why measure it? Do you think that discovering that your penis is within the ‘average range’ will soothe your anxieties about it being small? What will you do if you discover it is in fact, smaller than average? Unfortunately, many men try to increase their penis size through various interventions that can be invasive, costly and not make a difference to the way they feel about themselves. The solution is more likely to be a change of attitude towards yourself and your penis, namely learning to love what you’ve got.
How do penis extenders work? There are two fastening points: “One at the base of the penis and one just before the glans," says Rybchin. These connect to bars or rods that "extend the length of the extender. The bars or rods are lengthened by the wearer to stretch the penis over time. Where design differences come into play is the mechanism by which the rods are lengthened and the comfort features (such as padding) of the device itself."
So in 1997 he pivoted to the penis full-time, flexing his male enhancement chops by answering questions in web forums, Usenet groups and AOL chat rooms. Whatever he didn’t know, he learned, combing medical journals and consulting urologists to base his methodology on sound research. He was frustrated, though, by a dearth of information on natural, exercise-based male enhancement training and says the majority of online communities at the turn of the millenium were only focused on pumping. (Both jelqing and penis pumping force blood to the penis but do so differently. Imagine a tube of toothpaste: Starting at the bottom and squeezing the toothpaste out is jelqing; sucking the toothpaste out is pumping.)
Men who have lost all or part of their penis as a result of injury or surgery are certainly candidates for reconstructive operations. And, in certain cases where a man has a very small penis that is causing him severe, intractable psychological problems, cosmetic surgery may be considered a last resort. However, this is a radical step and clearly not a decision that can be rushed into. It is strongly recommended that anyone considering surgery should consult a urologist, as well as a therapist to discuss the issue and its psychological ramifications.
So how can we be sure it really exists? “Because the number of men seeking surgery, or the growth of this strange industry selling pills and other so-called enlargement remedies, these numbers do not map up with the numbers of men who actually have a significantly smaller penis than average,” Veale says. “So, these men are worrying about – and seeking solutions for – a problem they do not have.”

Good sex is certainly not about performance. Worrying about your penis size is falling victim to performance anxiety, which can lead to erectile difficulties and other sexual problems. For more information on Erectile Dysfunction, visit our ED Clinic for advice or a free assessment. Good sex is about being relaxed, in the moment, not focused on other things apart from enhancing thoughts and enjoying the physical sensations you experience with your partner.
Many men feel anxiety with regards to the size of their penis. There are an abundance of treatments offered online which claim to help you enlarge your penis. However, these are scams - there is no scientifically proven and safe treatment which can increase penis size. Find out what constitutes an average size and how to protect yourself from harmful treatments.
Veale’s theory chimes with the experience of a retired sales manager I meet in a drab Sheffield consultancy room. A lifelong bachelor, Eric Bell, 68, is charming and well-dressed, if, with a beard tinted blue, a touch eccentric. He is also preparing for his third penis enlargement – an operation that, judging from the sizeable member already between his legs, is unnecessary. “I’d just like it a bit fatter here,” he explains, circling thumb and middle finger around the top of his shaft. “I’m single, but it makes me happy knowing I have something eye-opening down there.” We spend five minutes discussing the merits of this before he asks his own question: “Can I put it away now?”
The surgical treatments, the researchers found, were dangerous and had “unacceptably high rate of complications.” But among the nonsurgical methods, at least one appeared to help grow a man’s member: the “traction method,” in which a penile extender stretched the phallus daily, resulted in average growth of 0.7 in., or 1.8 cm, of the flaccid penis in one study. In another study of the same method, men reported an average increase of 0.9 in. (2.3 cm) in length while flaccid and 0.67 in. (1.7 cm) while erect.
The FastSize Extender device promises results, but it's far from quick and easy. Just ask Bob, a retail manager from New Jersey. He says he's gained over 2 inches of erect length. All it took was 25 months and over 2,600 hours wearing the device, typically five hours a day, seven days a week. "I was afraid my girlfriend would think I was a freak, but she was supportive because she felt a difference in her satisfaction and I felt more confident in myself," Bob tells WebMD.
If you think that penis implant surgery may be the answer to your quest to make your penis bigger, the opposite can actually be true. Following the implantation of a penile prosthesis, some couples have reported dissatisfaction with penile girth and length. While penis implant surgery may improve penile rigidity, but it may confound a couple’s satisfaction with penile size to variable degrees [26]. Another review found that loss of penile size is a common complaint after penile prosthetic implant surgery, and pre-insertion, intraoperative, and post-insertion strategies are recommended to address these issues to reduce dissatisfaction with size after penis implant surgery [27].
“I hate to say it, but I think Elist is wrong,” counters male sexuality educator Paul Nelson, who wonders if Elist is confused with penis pumps, because Nelson says gains with penile extenders are absolutely permanent. There may be some retraction if you’re using it every day and suddenly stop, but most of it, he promises you’ll retain. Nelson agrees that jelqing could be dangerous, though, particularly for guys who believe that “some is good and more is better” and jelq too hard. “He may finish a jelqing session and think, That was good, let me do it again harder. And a little bit more next time. The next thing he knows, he’s got snapped nerves, torn tunicas and all kinds of devastating injuries.”
Big Al has been a pioneer in penis enlargement for going on two decades. The 44-year-old Miami native tells me he was a “thin, shy and bookish child” until age 14, when he began lifting weights and caught the self-improvement bug. After a five-year stint in the Army, he became a self-taught expert on nutrition, kinesiology and biomechanics. While researching a book on steroid-free natural bodybuilding, Big Al noticed the muscle mags were all filled with ads for penis enlargement pumps, pills and surgical procedures, so he developed a natural penis enlargement program as a free bonus for his bodybuilding course. “Surprisingly, nine out of ten weightlifters I spoke with were only interested in male enhancement,” he says.
Before starting this exercise, make sure you wait for thirty seconds to trap a lot of blood. Then, use your second hand to start stroking the penis towards the head position in a slow and firm stroke. Take three seconds to complete the stroke and wait one or two seconds at the head of the penis. Move your hand back to the starting position and repeat the milking motion.
Of all the sex-related topics out there, the one surrounded by the most myth is definitely penis enlargement. If you’re a guy who’s ever checked their spam folder, you’ll see reams and reams of emails promising more inches with pills, creams, surgery and more. Don’t trust them, obviously — however, there are so many who are trying to sell people on having a bigger penis that there must be more to it, right?
As I recently learned from Missouri State sociology professor Alicia M. Walker, men’s obsession with the diminutive size of their dicks can be debilitating. She’d spoken to numerous men who haven’t been to the doctor for a physical in a decade because they didn’t want to be naked in front of their doctor. Others had never approached someone for a romantic relationship because they didn’t believe anyone would be interested in them because of their penis size.
Here's why sexologists say size doesn't matter. Any size penis can provide great pleasure for the man it's attached to. An estimated 95 percent of penises are average size (3 to 5 inches flaccid, 5 to 7 inches erect). Very few are significantly larger or smaller. When women have been surveyed about what they want in a lover, they consistently mention attractiveness, kindness, caring, listening, sense of humor, and shared interests and values. Very few mention penis size. Finally, sex therapists report that women clients almost never complain about their partner's size. As a result, most sexologists say size doesn't matter.
• Embrace meditative relaxation. The arteries the carry blood into the penis are surrounded by muscle tissue. When men feel anxious (including worrying about penis size), these muscles contract, constricting the arteries and reducing blood inflow and size. But as men relax deeply, these muscles also relax, opening the arteries, maximizing blood flow, and boosting size, (Erection drugs work by relaxing these muscles.)
The sheer symbolism of what’s in a man’s pants may be a factor. As Harrison Pope and Katharine Phillips write in their book on male body obsessions, The Adonis Complex, genitals have been equated with “virility, procreative potency, and power” throughout history. This has been compounded by an apparent rise in general masculine vanity. Figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons show the total number of male procedures doubled between 2005 and 2015, with breast reduction, rhinoplasty and neck lifts especially popular. For those in need of rejuvenation, surgery is cheaper and more easily available than ever.
Androgen Deprivation Therapy – Androgen deprivation therapy is used to eliminate as much testosterone as possible in the body to treat prostate cancer. This may be done with GnRH or LHRH agonists, which reduce the amount of testosterone in the body or with anti-androgens, which block the use of testosterone by cancer cells. Unfortunately, the reduction of testosterone can cause genital shrinkage [21]. While other treatments are available if you’re worried about shrinkage, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons with your medical professional when making a decision.
• Eat less meat and cheese, and more fruits the vegetables. A diet high in animal fat raises cholesterol, which narrows the arteries, including those that carry blood into the penis. Try going a day or two a week without meat or cheese. And eat five to eight daily servings of fruits and vegetables. They contain antioxidants that help keep the arteries open.

“The penis extends for two to three inches inside the body in the pubococcygeus (PC) muscle, which can be strengthened in order to achieve stronger erections and orgasms. It also helps a great deal with obtaining better ejaculatory control,” says Hall. “The PC muscle, which surrounds the prostate gland, is like a valve around the genitals. Orgasm builds from the prostate, so learning to develop these muscles is highly beneficial. Doing PC muscle exercises helps to strengthen the muscle, and men can even add weight to help build it up,” says Hall.
Salvini moonlights as a pastor and views Matters of Size as a Christian brotherhood — it’s tribal, he says. Men call each other “brother,” which makes it feel like a family rather than a business. The most common issue, he says, is men who were mocked about the size of their dick. “That’s 80 percent of it,” he says. “A lot of women are vindictive and know exactly what to shoot for to hurt a man. If you have a six-inch dick, she’s gonna say it’s eight inches and stroke your ego when she falls in love with you. But when the relationship ends and she suddenly hates you, she’ll deduct two inches and go around saying you have a four-inch nubby cock. That’s just the way it is.”
Before taking this erect girth measurement, you should make sure your penis is at 100% erect. Hold the penis with one hand, so it is parallel to the ground. Use the other hand to wrap the tape around the penis but don’t pull it too tightly. Usually, average erect girth is around 4.5″ – 5.0″. Measure the erect girth around the penis and note down the measurement.
Lengthening the penis. The most common procedure is to cut the ligament that connects the penis to the pelvic bone. This allows a little more of the shaft -- on average less than an inch -- to become visible outside the body. It's not really lengthening the penis so much as revealing more of what's usually hidden. To prevent the ligament from reattaching, a guy would need weights or stretching devices daily for about six months.
