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.
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.
Professor Ralph at UCL believes that some clinics are feeding patients’ unrealistic expectations. “Initially, they don’t see doctors, they see sales people. It’s a hard sell: ‘We can get you an extra inch or two.’ I’ve been practising in the NHS for 30 years: if it was that easy to increase the length of a normal penis, I’d be in the Mediterranean on my cruise liner now.”
O’Connor says he had no concerns beforehand (“My main worry was having the anaesthetic – I’m scared of needles”) and no regrets afterwards. The pain was manageable and there were no complications. He views the procedure as akin to working out. “I’m not obsessed by my body – I have too many other things going on in my life,” O’Connor says. “But I’m proud of it and I like that it’s in good shape – every part of it.”
People get fillers and injections for all sorts of cosmetic reasons, but you can also get injections in your penis. "I have so many patients who come in stressing about the size of their penis when, in reality, the relationship between size and sexual satisfaction is a myth. The average vagina length is 5 inches, which is less than average penis size in America, which is 5.5 inches. What most men don’t realize is that when it comes to sexual satisfaction, girth is more important than length. There are things men can do to enhance their girth but it won’t come in the form of pill, and although penis pumps can improve an erection, they don’t help with overall size. Also, penis exercises are not totally validated to increase size. Sorry guys! But, there are solutions,” says Dr. Muhammad Mirza, sexual men's health expert and founder of ErectileDoctor.com.
I found that passionate professionalism a bit unnerving to be honest, but then again, I’ve never had weekly strategy sessions about my dick with a stranger. Like, how do you respond to a statement like this before lunch: “Be very careful not to grip the glans during your exercises, Brian. If you need to use some talcum powder to enhance your grip, that would be fine. Remember to update your log.”
I ask for his pre-op dimensions. He doesn’t want his exact measurements reported, but they are surprising: while flaccid, he was smaller than most men; erect, his penis grew significantly. Modecai, it seems, experienced two decades of stress despite the fact that, fully extended, he was bigger than the UK average. This apparent contradiction does not surprise Angela Gregory, a psychosexual therapist based at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. “Penis enlargements can be about a lot of things,” she says. “But the amount of anxiety a man experiences rarely, in my experience, correlates with his actual size.”
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.”
It is also worth noting that a man’s penis may change size considerably depending on time of day, temperature, and factors other than sexual stimulation or excitement. During sexual stimulation or excitement, the penis becomes engorged with blood and stands erect – but there is a wide variation in normal size and shape and angle for an erect penis also. In some men, the erect penis is almost the same size as the flaccid (soft or non-erect) penis, while in other men the erect penis is much longer and wider than the flaccid penis. You cannot tell by looking at a man’s flaccid penis what size it will be when erect.
The side effects of lengthening surgeries are numerous and include infections, nerve damage, reduced sensitivity, and difficulty getting an erection. Perhaps most disturbing, scarring can leave you with a penis that's shorter than what you started with. Widening the penis is even more controversial. Side effects can be unsightly -- a lumpy, bumpy, uneven penis.
It's not clear if "Stiff Nights" is a "dietary supplement" as its maker claims, or a bad b-movie title, but in either case the FDA says men looking to "regain the thunder" should stay clear because the pill really contains sulfoaildenafil, an untested chemical similar to the active ingredient in Viagra, which can interact badly with nitrates and cause low blood pressure.
Well, you are right – no pills or pump can increase penis size. But the thing is that men still use them and do you know why? Because of a hype and a believe. It can be a Placebo Effect or a real thing but men do feel more confided in bed when they use male enhancement products and it looks kike this is what matters at the end of the day. The more confident a man is the better it performs naked.
All this might be leading to more than simple image anxiety; some have pointed to a new mental-health issue they term penile dysmorphic disorder. “It is a minority of men – and we don’t know how many – but it certainly exists and it’s as damaging as any other body dysmorphia,” says Professor David Veale, of King’s College London, an authority on health anxieties. “These men might seek out surgery, and for a few months they will be happy with the results. But then the same anxieties reappear. So, they seek out further surgery. It becomes a circle. But you cannot keep making your penis bigger. This requires therapy.”
Penis stretching is the type of penis enlargement treatment that few dare to take on. It is one of the most prevalent penis enlargement treatments available today, however due to the expense in purchasing a device or practicing masturbation like exercise techniques or even because of the tedious and redundant stretching process, many men, myself included, never thought twice about this type of treatment.
Men dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) have a higher risk of dealing with penile shrinkage. One study that included 1,027 adult men looked at normal adult men and ED patients with no differences in height, race, weight, and age. The ED patients have a significantly shorter penis length, showing an association between ED and shrinkage . Another case-control study also found that both diabetic and nondiabetic men with ED dealt with a decline in penile dimensions, and the decline was even more prevalent in diabetic patients . Working with your doctor to find an effective treatment for ED may help prevent shrinkage due to ED, and if you have comorbidities like diabetes along with ED, effectively managing both may be important to prevent a decline in penile dimensions.
• 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.
Another surgical technique known as a dermal implant can increase girth and length. This procedure transplants fat cells from other parts of the body to the penis. As the size of the head of the penis cannot be increased, the results can lead to a penis with an unusual shape. And sometimes the distribution of the grafted cells results in clumping and gives far from smooth results. Many urologists will not perform this type of surgery unless there are good therapeutic reasons.
