...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."
Penis extenders and traction devices are other options often advertised to make your penis bigger, and they are designed to stretch the penis by exerting traction on it. One small study done on 23 men saw a small increase in both flaccid penile length and stretched penile length after using a penile extender . Another small study on 15 patients saw more significant gains in length after six months of using penile extenders, along with improvements in erectile function . It’s important to note that both of these studies are very small, and while they look promising, further studies on penis extension and penis stretching are needed.
...follow the program I outlined. If he smokes, he should quit. If he's sedentary, he should exercise regularly, ideally the equivalent of 30-60 minutes a day of brisk walking. To add a meditative, deep relaxation component, he might try yoga, or tai chi. And if he eats a lot of meat and cheese, he should try a few meat-less, cheese-less days a week, and eat more fruits and vegetables. This lifestyle approach won't change his size overnight, but over time (like a year), you might notice a difference.
“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.”
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.
If you’re worried about satisfying your partner with an average or smaller penis, you’ll be happy to know that most of the vagina’s nerves are located on the outer third of the vagina, which is why you can finger a woman to orgasm (more here). If you have an average size penis, you can target this area by entering from on top while your partner lies with her legs flat on the bed. It reduces the depth of penetration and puts more tension on the vaginal lips, improving stimulation for both of you.
As I recently learned from Missouri State sociology professor Alicia M. Walker, men’s obsession with the diminutive size of their dicks can be debilitating. She’d spoken to numerous men who haven’t been to the doctor for a physical in a decade because they didn’t want to be naked in front of their doctor. Others had never approached someone for a romantic relationship because they didn’t believe anyone would be interested in them because of their penis size.
So it’s worth asking, guys, do you really need a bigger penis? Most men who seek treatment for the condition called “short penis” actually fall within normal penis size, the researchers found; their sense of what’s normal is simply warped. To qualify for the clinical definition of short-penis syndrome, a man must be smaller than 1.6 in. (4 cm) when limp and under 3 in. (7.6 cm) when erect. In a 2005 study of 92 men who sought treatment for short penis, researchers found that none qualified for the syndrome.
However, after more than a century of generally dubious and sometimes lunatic penis enlargement attempts, there's still not much you can do. Sure, there are lots and lots of supposed options out there -- penis pills, creams, brutal stretching exercises, horrific-looking devices, and penis surgery. Almost none of it works. The few approaches that can work often have modest benefits and serious side effects. How serious? In some cases, erectile dysfunction-serious.
