Pumping does give your temporary gains, and those temporary gains can get more and more significant the more you pump. Those temporary gains are a blast to me. I know it’ll “deflate” back to normal in some hours, but it’s a blast while it’s large. it gets addictive, too. You try to chase that huge pump you had a few days ago, but your body just isn’t there sometimes. It’s like working out. Somedays you can run 10 miles and feel great, or your breaking personal lifting records. Somedays you can barely put a dent in your usual routine.
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
“I had a patient last week who was using a vacuum to masturbate and half of his penis turned black after iron absorbed into the skin. Unfortunately you can’t do anything but replace the skin.” As for the legions of men who’ve reported significant gains via stretching and jelqing, Elist rolls his eyes. “It’s just temporary. As soon as they stop, in a matter of few months, it will go back. There’s no doubt about that.”
Tanya (San Diego, California)—My fiancé’s penis size has always been something of a hush, hush topic for me because, having been with larger men in the past, he’s just over five and a quarter inches long and just under 4 inches around, I missed the intensity of the sex I used to have with larger endowed lovers from the past. I know is size is average, on the smaller side of average. And it’s not that he couldn’t give me an orgasm (sometimes), the thing about Travis (let’s call him that for the sake of this letter) is that he’s very focused and works very hard to please me. He knows what to do with his tongue and fingers and even his penis, but it’s always just been a matter of him working within his means. Before any guys read this and think that I’m just being a selfish bitch, it’s not like that. I never did reveal to Travis that his penis size was a problem for me, and I never ever would have. His feelings are very important to me, so I would have just gone on silently longing for the big hard intensity that I missed from the past.
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.
