As we started to analyze these products we found that there is way too much marketing hype which is completely misleading and is causing people to buy products that not only have no effect, but can also be harmful. There are countless brands to choose from and many of them make outrageous claims about what their product can do without any legitimate studies to back it up. We have done the research and will guide you through this deceptive web we call the male enhancement industry.
There have been long periods when I haven’t pumped, and I pump away from my wife, when she is not in the house. I do this, as my wife and I no longer have sex, and I discreetly visit massage parlours and occasionally prostitutes. My size is often a talking point with the women I see. Sure, they’re paid to pay compliments and flatter my ego, but my penis size has led to me getting a more intimate service and freebies. Fact.
The extenders we’re discussing here are not like the devices mentioned above that are used for penis extension. Instead, these tools, usually made from realistic materials, are worn on the penis during sex and make you feel bigger to your partner without changing the size of your penis. They can add a bit of girth and length if they’re the style that are closed at the end (some are shorter than a penis and remain open).
Other tips for preventing penis shrinkage such as stopping smoking and optimizing blood flow to the penis may not have a lot of studies to back them up, but we do know there’s a relationship between healthy blood flow and sexual health. Taking measures to maintain blood flow throughout the body, which includes quitting smoking, may not specifically prevent shrinkage but can promote overall sexual health and wellness.
In terms of what constitutes small, big and average, a 2007 study from British urologists Kevan Wylie and Ian Eardley revealed that the average erect penis is 5.5 inches in length and 4.7 inches in girth. According to Wylie and Eardley, most men who suffer from small penis syndrome (i.e., the anxiety of thinking their penis is too small even though it isn’t) have nowhere close to what scientists define as a micropenis. Not to mention, according to one of the studies cited, 85 percent of women surveyed said they were satisfied with their partner’s genitals, whereas only 55 percent of men were happy with what nature had given them. In other words, almost half of the men surveyed would like to have a bigger dick.
For men with performance issues who are physically healthy, Boyle often prescribes counseling, such as marriage counseling for men with relationship issues or psychiatric help for men who are preoccupied with a problem in penile appearance. For young men with sexual performance problems and no signs of physical problems, Boyle may prescribe counseling and a low dose of Viagra as they work out issues of insecurity. "They need reassurance from a physician that everything is OK," she says.
Not all agree though. Pills and supplements seem sometimes to satisfy men who are looking for something that will not be permanent but are worried more about performance. “Penis pills don’t require a device or consistency and practice. I’ve seen pills work at making the penis not only harder, but also last longer. I always say that men have never seen the full potential of their penis. Until you pop some penis pills or try a cock ring or a penis pump, you will have never seen what your penis is capable of,” says Leo Debois of AdamsToyBox, a male-focused adult toy store.
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?”
Two urological researchers, Marco Ordera and Paolo Gontero of the University of Turin in Italy, examined outcomes from both surgical and nonsurgical procedures for “male enhancement” in previous studies. Half of the studies involved surgical procedures performed on 121 men; the other half involved nonsurgical enhancement techniques used by 109 men.
Using penile extenders involves hanging a weight off the penis for hours at a time, which doesn't increase size. To the contrary, this can cause tissue damage and there have been reports of it causing Peyronie's disease (curving of the penis). Rather than resulting in enlargement, using penile extenders could cause injury and have a negative effect on your ability to get an erection.
The secret to our penis enlargement success is born from over thirty years of testing and refining our techniques by founding physician Steven L. Morganstern, MD. Unlike competing approaches, Dr. Morganstern knew the solution wasn’t going to be found in an artificial penile implant or injectable as the primary bulking agent. He pioneered the use of penile implants for treating erectile dysfunction in the 1980’s and better understood the complications and shortcomings of such artificial implantations.
According to Danoff, most of the “thousands of [products] on the market today rely on the placebo effect.” The well-known placebo effect simply means that “about 40 percent of people,” in Danoff’s words, will report a positive result when given a useless product and told it will work. “When it comes to things sexual, the power of suggestion is overwhelmingly more than what goes on between your legs,” said Danoff, explaining how once you’ve paid your $39.99 for a pill or a device, you’ll be inclined to believe it really works.
One of the things I took away from dating him is how insecure men can be about their penis size. So whenever I date anyone, I always tell them the very specific details in how I love their penis. I never lie – that would be too tough to maintain long-term – but I always find something. Huge girth. Love the way it curves. The hardest I’ve ever been with. I can barely fit it in my mouth. Whatever. I don’t understand the penis-insecurity but I am going to do my best to rid this world of penis insecurities, one cock at a time.
