FDA has identified an emerging trend where over-the-counter products, frequently represented as dietary supplements, contain hidden active ingredients that could be harmful. Consumers may unknowingly take products laced with varying quantities of approved prescription drug ingredients, controlled substances, and untested and unstudied pharmaceutically active ingredients. These deceptive products can harm you! Hidden ingredients are increasingly becoming a problem in products promoted for sexual enhancement.
Vacuum pumps are often used to treat erectile dysfunction because they draw blood into the penis, causing it to swell. Some men have tried to use vacuum pumps to increase size, but routinely using a penis pump or using it longer than typically used to treat ED can result in damage to the elastic tissue of the penis, resulting in less-firm erections. Although a vacuum pump may create the illusion of a larger penis at the time, the results are not permanent .
“Young men generally become preoccupied with the size of their genitals when they compare with others,” she says. “Historically, this was limited to changing rooms or the odd top-shelf magazine. But now there is this almost routine exposure to porn via smartphones. And that is creating a generation of men whose expectations of what they should look like are entirely unattainable.”
The best ways to make the penis bigger naturally are to lose weight in the groin area and for men to do Kegel exercises. “There is almost as much penis inside the body (as an anchor) as there is visibly outside of the body. When a man loses weight, the exterior portion will actually be longer. I believe it is about 1/2"-1" for every 10 lbs lost. It is why often skinny guys seem to be more well-endowed,” says Yelverton. Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor and the majority of men in studies report longer and stronger erections (which men often equate to size).
"Some men are confused (or rather not as educated on the matter) and they believe that the outside skin get’s longer and thicker. That’s false. However, some men have false expectations; they think using a penis pump once will cause them to have a bigger penis permanently, and that’s false. As in the gym example before, you have to keep at it, and you have to practice to see results. Yes, early on you will see results like any newbie in the gym, but if you don’t keep at it you will see those results diminish,” says Dubois.
