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.)
Clark was so inspired that he invented a penis weight-hanging device called the Malehanger, which attaches up to 80 pounds of weight to a flaccid dick for 20 minutes at a time. (It’s best to restore circulation after 15 to 20 minutes, he says.) Clark typically advises customers to use Malehanger instead of jelqing and stretching, since he claims the more focused you are on one type of training, the better results you’ll get.
Penile enlargement pills and patches are devices that you see advertised on-line lots. They promise to become very convenient and discreet solutions if you need to make your penis bigger. However, you have to be conscious of research about the efficacy of those pills and patches are consistent in showing that these pills are ineffective and they are purely offered for profit. Every current brand of pill I know of may also be not FDA approved, so anybody’s researching their claims of safety and efficacy.
“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.
The internet is packed with banner ads and pop-ups that advertise pills and lotions for male enhancement and enlarging the penis. They often contain herbs, hormones, minerals, and vitamins, but none of them have been proven to work . Some pills have been investigated by the FDA and found to have levels of prescription drugs like sildenafil (Viagra) in them, and the FDA notes that there’s a growing trend of dietary supplements that contain hidden chemicals and drugs .
Cock Rings. These rubber donut-shaped devices tightly encircle the erect penis. Typically used to help maintain erection, they also provide a small--temporary--size boost. Flaccid or erect, blood circulates in and out of the penis. One of the veins that carries blood out runs close to the organ's skin (on top). A ring restricts outflow somewhat by compressing this vein. Don't expect miracles. Any effect is modest and temporary.

Panic is the anti-answer, so let’s end that now. Like any situation, this one demands some straight up facts, so let’s begin there. The first and most important fact is to forget what you’ve seen in photographs, in movies, or on the web. Based on a sample of 1,661 guys, the average self-reported erect penis length is 5.6 inches. Technically, according to the Mayo Clinic, a penis is not even considered small unless it measures less than three inches when erect.
Dr. Dudley Seth Danoff, author of The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health: How To Stay Vital at Any Age, has seen more than 100,000 patients (no exaggeration) over his 30 years as a practicing urologist. According to this graduate of both Princeton and Yale, enhancement is not a common request, but a fair number of patients have asked him, "What can I do to make my penis larger?" Still, as Danoff told Medical Daily, “There isn’t a man alive who wouldn’t like a larger penis.”
Being fit and at a healthy weight has a lot to do with how a penis appears and performs (more on that soon) but it also has a lot to do with what we eat. For example, foods like onions are said to increase healthy blood flow and circulation — including to the penis! Salmon is known for this as well, and so are bananas (we’re trying not to make a pun here) and dark chocolate. Also, foods high in protein (say, like eggs or low Greek yogurt) and proper hydration can only work in your favor.
At his Harley Street clinic, Dr Roberto Viel is explaining how a typical enlargement works. First, surgeons sever the organ’s suspensory ligament, causing it to hang an inch or two lower, giving the impression of extra length. They then extract fat from the patient’s stomach and inject it into the penis shaft, increasing girth by around two inches. Erect, it’s worth noting, it remains roughly the same size, suggesting the motives for many men are not necessarily to enhance either their – or a partner’s – sexual experience.
6 weeks passes and I still can’t achieve a full erection. My maximum was 70% and I was having weird symptoms with my member. I had developed a torsion of maybe 10 degrees, as in the head was rotated. Nothing too grotesque as I’ve seen other guys born with this naturally, but it just wasn’t straight anymore. The other symptom led to seaches online pointing to something called ‘hard flaccid,’ something not medically recognized as a real symptom. My penis would not go soft basically. It felt rubbery and stiff all the time, and it only relaxed to what I was used to if I was urinating or laying down on my back. It’s resistant to being moved and prevents me from getting an erection while standing up.
When we asked over 2,000 women across the world what was important to them in the bedroom, what consistently came across in their answers was that women care a lot more about things like foreplay, intimacy and a sense of connection than something like your size. So the conclusion: no, she doesn’t really care about the size of your penis. She probably cares a lot more about you.
I tried stamina-rx. I bought it from the gas station and was super anxious so I thought I’d give it a test run before the big show. Well about 30 minutes later I started sweating my ass off, my face was flushed, my heart starting beating out of my chest, and I got the worst stomach ache ever. I was only 18 and couldn’t tell my mom I was dying because of dick pills, so I laid on the floor and accepted that this was how I was going to die.
If there is one unifying factor, it is a lack of confidence about what nature has provided. The average length of a British penis is, according to a 2016 King’s College London study, 5.16in erect and 3.67in flaccid. Only 0.14% of men have what one University of California study defined as a “micropenis” – that is, less than 2.5 inches when erect. Nonetheless, study after study shows dissatisfaction remains widespread among men.
Brandon Bartling, store manager of The Pleasure Chest, an erotic store located in New York City's West Village, understands this as well. His store carries any number of products that cater to this manly desire, everything from dietary supplements to a “penis extender, which is a sleeve that you literally wear over your penis to increase length and girth. Kind of like a thick, firm condom in a phallus shape,” he told Medical Daily in an email. He added his customers tell him that “the Blue Wolf pills work the best to help boost one’s ability to obtain firmer, longer lasting erections, while others swear by the Bathmates line of Hydromax and Hercules pumps.”
...just as some men care about the size of women's breasts. But many (most?) men think women are as obsessed with penis size as guys are, and that's simply not true. From all the surveys of what women want in a man (and there have been quite a few), penis size is way down the list, if it appears at all. And with all due respect to women who yearn to be "filled up," I've talked with several men who have really huge, porn-star penises, and to a man, they've said their size was not a gift, but a burden, that most women take one look at their phone pole and say, "Oh, wow...but there's NO WAY that thing's going inside me."
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.
It's important to remember that male enhancement is a big industry which reinforces men's insecurities about the size of their penis. Penis enlargement pills do not work, and neither do creams, lotions, supplements or other male enhancement products. If there was an approved and effective treatment it would be available from pharmacies rather than illegitimate online pharmacies only.
