“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.
Unfortunately, whenever it’s recognised that people feel insecure about an aspect of themselves, such as their appearance or sexuality, there will be unscrupulous types who’ll try to turn it into a money-making opportunity. This is why ads for miracle ‘cures’ for the small penis abound – on the internet, in magazines, in your inbox – not because they work, but because the advertisers know that millions of men hope these claims just might be true.
Of all the sex-related topics out there, the one surrounded by the most myth is definitely penis enlargement. If you’re a guy who’s ever checked their spam folder, you’ll see reams and reams of emails promising more inches with pills, creams, surgery and more. Don’t trust them, obviously — however, there are so many who are trying to sell people on having a bigger penis that there must be more to it, right?
"It's a real shame that penis size hang-ups make so many men feel inadequate," says sex educator Betty Dodson, Ph.D. "I urge men to make peace with their penises. It's fine as it is. Enjoy what you've got, and you'll be a happier lover--and probably a better lover. And if you want to be a really great lover, understand that while most women enjoy gentle, well-lubricated intercourse, what makes them come is clitoral caresses--and for most women, intercourse doesn't provide much clitoral action. I couldn't care less about a man's size. Give me an enthusiastic tongue on my clit any time."
Chicago urologist Laurence A. Levine, MD, director of the male fertility program at Rush University Medical Center, tested the FastSize Extender on 10 men afflicted with Peyronie's disease, which can cause bending and shrinkage of the penis. At the end of the six-month study, which was funded by the maker of the FastSize Extender, Levine found increased penile length and reduced curvature in every man and increased girth in seven of the men. Calling the results "remarkable," Levine now prescribes the device to many of his Peyronie's patients and reports no significant complications. (Levine has also worked as a paid consultant to FastSize Extender.)
“Operations are very safe,” says Viel, who founded the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery with his twin brother Maurizio. “Perhaps 95% of our patients are very happy. Where they are not, it is often to do with expectations. Some men want 10 inches when nature gave them four or five. I have to say, gently, ‘This is not possible. I am not a miracle worker.’”
Surgery offers the only permanent solution for enlargement of the penis. Through surgery, the penis can be visually enlarged, usually by just over an inch. The surgeon will cut the ligaments that hold the penis in its usual position, allowing the penis to descend. Weights, or stretching devices, are then used for a few months to affect a permanent increase in size. The procedure may result in scar tissue, the erection will point down, and the base of the penis will be hairy.
Another injection option to consider if you want to make your penis bigger is hyaluronic acid injections, which involves injecting stabilized, hyaluronic acid-based non-animal gel into the penis. One study assessed patients who underwent either hyaluronic acid shots or lipofilling, looking at the charts of 83 patients who underwent one of these treatments for penis enlargement. Studies showed that all patients saw an increase in penis length of between 1.8-3.6 centimeters and the patients treated with hyaluronic acid had no complications . While this study showed good results, more studies are necessary.
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.
“There’s no legitimate way to do it,” Danoff said, explaining that, unlike the breasts or the nose, the penis is not a static organ, it needs to move, and “there’s not a grafting material that’s suitable for that.” While there is one procedure that involves cutting the suspensory ligament, this only gives “an illusion of length,” he said. It doesn't actually extend it.
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.
The FastSize Extender device promises results, but it's far from quick and easy. Just ask Bob, a retail manager from New Jersey. He says he's gained over 2 inches of erect length. All it took was 25 months and over 2,600 hours wearing the device, typically five hours a day, seven days a week. "I was afraid my girlfriend would think I was a freak, but she was supportive because she felt a difference in her satisfaction and I felt more confident in myself," Bob tells WebMD.
The “Rice Sock Technique” is the preferred warm-up of AJ “Big Al” Alfaro, my “Male Enhancement Coach” (i.e., dick enlargement tutor), who explicitly warns me NOT to skip this step. Some guys cut corners because they’re short on time, he explains, but warming up is essential when working out the penis because it prevents injuries and maximizes gains, as with any kind of exercise. I’m hoping to add an extra inch — to go from five and a half inches to six and a half inches, which Big Al assures me can be done in a matter of months so long as I follow his direction. We meet weekly via Skype to discuss my training regimen, and I receive occasional emails reminding me to update my training log. “The most difficult part of my job is getting men to comply with the Journal Progress Log,” he says sternly.
Make friends with your penis. If you see your penis as your enemy, always letting you down and embarrassing you, that is not a good starting point for fostering positive feelings about your body and sexual relationships. Think about what conditions might make a better environment for your penis to function. Feeling relaxed, warm, sober, having the right kind of stimulation and an encouraging partner are a few suggestions.
...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."
Performed on the halfway tumescent penis, jelqing is a manual manipulation of simultaneous squeezing and stroking the shaft from base to corona. Also called "milking", the technique has ancient Arab origins. Despite many anecdotal reports of success, medical evidence is absent. Journalists have dismissed the method as biologically implausible, or even impossible, albeit unlikely to seriously damage the penis. Still, if done excessively or harshly, jelqing could conceivably cause ruptures, scarring, disfigurement, and desensitization.
