Instead of furtively turning to untested methods, men with persistent concerns should consider opening up about them with their doctors. That's because performance problems sometimes act as an early warning signal for serious health problems. Your doctor might be able to prescribe something that can really help, or least provide a valuable dose of perspective about what constitutes "normal" sexual performance.
Overall, most studies seem to conclude that women are not overly concerned about penis size. In fact, some studies have reported that 84% of women are very satisfied with the size of their partner’s penis size . In another questionnaire on penis size, 55% of women responded that the length of the penis was unimportant and 22% responded that penis length was totally unimportant. Their opinions about penis girth followed the same trend, although length was found to be less important to women than girth .
It seems every guy either wants to tell you how huge his penis is, or make it bigger than it is. And there are lots of methods out there that claim to be able to help. From drugs and supplements to devices and injections and even surgery, there’s lots of options. But do they actually work, and are they something you want or need to get involved in?
Clark was so inspired that he invented a penis weight-hanging device called the Malehanger, which attaches up to 80 pounds of weight to a flaccid dick for 20 minutes at a time. (It’s best to restore circulation after 15 to 20 minutes, he says.) Clark typically advises customers to use Malehanger instead of jelqing and stretching, since he claims the more focused you are on one type of training, the better results you’ll get.
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.”
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.
If you think that penis implant surgery may be the answer to your quest to make your penis bigger, the opposite can actually be true. Following the implantation of a penile prosthesis, some couples have reported dissatisfaction with penile girth and length. While penis implant surgery may improve penile rigidity, but it may confound a couple’s satisfaction with penile size to variable degrees . Another review found that loss of penile size is a common complaint after penile prosthetic implant surgery, and pre-insertion, intraoperative, and post-insertion strategies are recommended to address these issues to reduce dissatisfaction with size after penis implant surgery .
This kind of belief probably expresses much of how you feel about yourself and your body and how you think others perceive you. Often, doubts and feelings of shame and inadequacy about penis shape and size stem from comments bandied about in school changing rooms, during puberty. Furthermore, messages we receive from the media and society can all too often link masculinity, power and virility to penis size, thus re-enforcing this self-doubt and poor body image.
So how can we be sure it really exists? “Because the number of men seeking surgery, or the growth of this strange industry selling pills and other so-called enlargement remedies, these numbers do not map up with the numbers of men who actually have a significantly smaller penis than average,” Veale says. “So, these men are worrying about – and seeking solutions for – a problem they do not have.”
The sheer symbolism of what’s in a man’s pants may be a factor. As Harrison Pope and Katharine Phillips write in their book on male body obsessions, The Adonis Complex, genitals have been equated with “virility, procreative potency, and power” throughout history. This has been compounded by an apparent rise in general masculine vanity. Figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons show the total number of male procedures doubled between 2005 and 2015, with breast reduction, rhinoplasty and neck lifts especially popular. For those in need of rejuvenation, surgery is cheaper and more easily available than ever.
Testosterone injections — or making sure your testosterone levels are healthy — will help with erections and sex drive. “I am not sure if it can actually increase size. My opinion is that it could slightly increase size, if the man was severely deficient and then his testosterone levels were balanced. Mainly because he was probably not getting fully aroused with low testosterone, so when it is increased, he would seem bigger. Trans men do however experience clitoral growth when given testosterone, making the clitoris look like a mini penis,” says Yelverton.
Before starting penis enlargement exercise, you have to measure your penis both in flaccid state and erect state. Also, you need to keep a logbook to track your gains. While measuring your penis, you need to round down your measurements, this way when you see gain you will not think it is because you didn’t measure correctly. Measure your penis size once a month, if you measure your penis everyday, it will lead to inaccurate results, and it will become harder to motivate yourself.
6 weeks passes and I still can’t achieve a full erection. My maximum was 70% and I was having weird symptoms with my member. I had developed a torsion of maybe 10 degrees, as in the head was rotated. Nothing too grotesque as I’ve seen other guys born with this naturally, but it just wasn’t straight anymore. The other symptom led to seaches online pointing to something called ‘hard flaccid,’ something not medically recognized as a real symptom. My penis would not go soft basically. It felt rubbery and stiff all the time, and it only relaxed to what I was used to if I was urinating or laying down on my back. It’s resistant to being moved and prevents me from getting an erection while standing up.
Good sex is certainly not about performance. Worrying about your penis size is falling victim to performance anxiety, which can lead to erectile difficulties and other sexual problems. For more information on Erectile Dysfunction, visit our ED Clinic for advice or a free assessment. Good sex is about being relaxed, in the moment, not focused on other things apart from enhancing thoughts and enjoying the physical sensations you experience with your partner.
If there were any justice in the world this book would have hit the New York Times bestseller list. As what, I don't know. Humor? Non-fiction? Fiction? Pure wicked genius? I got it from the library but I'm going to have to buy a copy for my keeper shelf. Somebody give Mr. Purnell a MacArthur so he can have time to write more brilliant books like this.
