As the name implies, the traction method involves the phallus being placed in an extender and then stretched daily. One team of researchers quoted in the study reported average growth of 0.7 inches (flaccid) in participants who used the method for four to six hours each day over four months. Another team reported an average increase of nearly an inch (0.9 inches, flaccid) plus some slight improvement in girth after similar treatments lasting a course of six months.
As we started to analyze these products we found that there is way too much marketing hype which is completely misleading and is causing people to buy products that not only have no effect, but can also be harmful. There are countless brands to choose from and many of them make outrageous claims about what their product can do without any legitimate studies to back it up. We have done the research and will guide you through this deceptive web we call the male enhancement industry.
Agree with Mary. Most women I've dated have stated they only date men with big dicks (7and up and fat). To many, 7 inches is their minimum. Most women may not have this criterea but many modern women do. Saying penis size doesn't matter is a ridiculous PC answer. However, vaginas come in different sizes. A big dick with a small vagina is not meant to be. The Kama Sutras recommendations in this regard are far more helpful than just denying it matters. It matters... To some women... To varying degrees. Key is in finding partners who are a good mutual fit.
The surgical treatments, the researchers found, were dangerous and had “unacceptably high rate of complications.” But among the nonsurgical methods, at least one appeared to help grow a man’s member: the “traction method,” in which a penile extender stretched the phallus daily, resulted in average growth of 0.7 in., or 1.8 cm, of the flaccid penis in one study. In another study of the same method, men reported an average increase of 0.9 in. (2.3 cm) in length while flaccid and 0.67 in. (1.7 cm) while erect.
Sometimes men with erection problems or a diminished libido have low levels of testosterone, Boyle says. Testosterone deficiencies can also affect mood and energy levels. Boyle tests for testosterone levels and prescribes it as a topical gel, though she warns it is only safe when prescribed and monitored by a physician. Nonprescription testosterone, such as the kind used by some bodybuilders, is dangerous, she warns.

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.
Because of great risk and uncertainty, medical professionals are generally skeptical of penile enlargement and avoid attempting it. Medical doctors do treat micropenis as a medical condition, however, usually by surgery, which can be warranted to improve urinary or sexual function. Most men seeking penis enlargement have normal-size penises, and many may experience penile dysmorphophobia by underestimating their own penis size while overestimating the average size.
How do penis extenders work? There are two fastening points: “One at the base of the penis and one just before the glans," says Rybchin. These connect to bars or rods that "extend the length of the extender. The bars or rods are lengthened by the wearer to stretch the penis over time. Where design differences come into play is the mechanism by which the rods are lengthened and the comfort features (such as padding) of the device itself."
"Some men are confused (or rather not as educated on the matter) and they believe that the outside skin get’s longer and thicker. That’s false. However, some men have false expectations; they think using a penis pump once will cause them to have a bigger penis permanently, and that’s false. As in the gym example before, you have to keep at it, and you have to practice to see results. Yes, early on you will see results like any newbie in the gym, but if you don’t keep at it you will see those results diminish,” says Dubois.
