Studies suggest that when erect, the average adult penis measures around 13cm in length and 10cm to 12cm in circumference. It might be comforting to know that a penis that is smaller when flaccid may be a similar length to that of a larger flaccid penis when both are erect. But measuring your penis isn’t going to change its size, so ask yourself, why measure it? Do you think that discovering that your penis is within the ‘average range’ will soothe your anxieties about it being small? What will you do if you discover it is in fact, smaller than average? Unfortunately, many men try to increase their penis size through various interventions that can be invasive, costly and not make a difference to the way they feel about themselves. The solution is more likely to be a change of attitude towards yourself and your penis, namely learning to love what you’ve got.
hey man you need two things for good sex. an erect penis and a vagina which can hug that penis sufficiently. if your penis does not touch the vaginal walls has it ever occurred to you that its time for vaginal exercises? normally speaking a vagina has the ability to grip whatever goes inside, be it a finger or a penis or whatever. when women are unable to feel anything, the penis is quickly blamed! but it might as well be that their little tunnel has lost grip.
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.
Obviously my gf broke up the week after I had my issue. I don’t blame her for anything, it was my own insecurities that led me to my decision. I’m a young guy who didn’t know how to deal with the situation and I ended up doing something stupid. I’ve been majorly abstinent over the course of these four months or so. I didn’t touch anything down there until about two weeks ago. It’s been a challenge but I’m putting my health first.

The vacuum pump. This is a cylinder that sucks out air. You stick your penis in and the resulting vacuum draws extra blood into it, making it erect and a little bigger. You then clamp off the penis with a tight ring -- like a tourniquet -- to keep the blood from leaking back into your body. What are the drawbacks? The effect only lasts as long as you have the ring on. Using it for more than 20 to 30 minutes can cause tissue damage. This is sometimes used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, but has not been proven to actually increase the size of the penis.
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.

Being fit and at a healthy weight has a lot to do with how a penis appears and performs (more on that soon) but it also has a lot to do with what we eat. For example, foods like onions are said to increase healthy blood flow and circulation — including to the penis! Salmon is known for this as well, and so are bananas (we’re trying not to make a pun here) and dark chocolate. Also, foods high in protein (say, like eggs or low Greek yogurt) and proper hydration can only work in your favor.
Sure, you may encounter partners who may be turned off by that, as with any physical or sexual preference. But you’ll also find partners who are turned on by it, or who don’t care either way. It’s all about finding the right sexual compatibility with the right partner — and that might include adding more oral stimulation, manual stimulation, sex toys, and so on. It's 100% entirely possible to have an amazing sex life with any size penis (or, you know, none at all).
“There are at least six major complications with penile jelqing and stretching that have been documented in the medical literature,” explains urologist James Elist, inventor of the only FDA-approved penis enlargement implant on the market. Unsurprisingly then, he’s not a fan of the techniques Big Al et al employ. “It may stretch the penis for awhile, but as soon as you let it go, it’s going to go back. So in the long-term, I don’t think it has any effect, but it does have major major side effects.” For example, he says, stretching penile skin continuously forms thick scar tissue around the penis like a condom under the skin, limiting how much it can expand. You can also permanently damage nerves, he adds, creating small tears in the penis that cause numbness and internal bleeding.
“I’ve seen a lot of shifts over the years,” Big Al says after explaining a reverse kegel called the DLD Blaster. “When I first started, most guys were just looking for raw size — length and girth.” As time has passed, though, he’s given much more attention to things like erection quality, sexual confidence and addiction to porn. In fact, these days, four out of five of Big Al’s clients are self-diagnosed porn addicts.

This is not some fanciful idea, or is it theoretical hogwash. Evidence from one study of 367 military personnel, all men, and no one older than 40, found those who felt most satisfied in terms of male genital self-image had lower levels of sexual anxiety and better sexual functioning. And what about the self-doubting ones, those who disliked the appearance of their member? The researchers found the opposite to be true in some (though not all) cases. Dissatisfaction led to anxiety, which led to sexual difficulties — a vicious cycle.
All consultations with Big Al are done remotely via Skype, which he conducts from his home office in Central Florida (out of earshot of his wife and young kids). His wife is aware of what he does and is totally cool with it, so long as he’s helping people. Which he appears to be doing from the looks of dozens of seemingly legit testimonials on PEGym, a sexual improvement site for men. Dear Ambellina, for example, says he made some “good and easy newbie gains” before hitting a wall, but Big Al kept him motivated to reach his desired length of 7.5 inches. “A huge part of penis enlargement is mental discipline,” Ambellina explains. “A coaching service like Big Al’s is invaluable because you’re much more likely to follow through when a passionate professional is monitoring your progress and pushing you to achieve.”

If you’re shorter than average, you still have options to please your partner and enjoy sex yourself. Riding high bringing the base of the penis against the clitoris while grinding against the pubic bone instead of thrusting can work well for you. This focuses on the rocking motion, and it won’t matter how long or short you are when you’re not thrusting.
According to the website of one such product, the safe application of traction encourages tissue cells to divide and multiply, a process called cytokinesis. Over time and with great effort this will lead to tissue growth. The FDA considers these low-risk devices (Class 1) and so provides only general controls intended to be followed by manufacturers.
If you want to improve your penis size effectively, you should work out every day. When you do physical exercise, your body will be in good shape, your self-esteem is also improved. Whenever you feel good, you will feel more satisfied about sex, and you will increase penis size accordingly. I will also share with you a penis medicine that are extremely effective.
For men trying to figure out how to get a bigger penis, innovative surgical techniques for lengthening the penis and enhancing girth have sparked interest. Male genital corrective surgery is becoming a more popular request by patients, but there’s not a lot of long-term data and patient-related satisfaction details surrounding surgical intervention as a method for penis enlargement [15]. Penile elongation surgery is an option for restoring the penis to functional size for satisfactory sexual intercourse, although it’s generally only recommended as a treatment for micropenis [16]. Currently, reputable medical organizations do not endorse surgical intervention for purely cosmetic reasons [4].

In terms of what constitutes small, big and average, a 2007 study from British urologists Kevan Wylie and Ian Eardley revealed that the average erect penis is 5.5 inches in length and 4.7 inches in girth. According to Wylie and Eardley, most men who suffer from small penis syndrome (i.e., the anxiety of thinking their penis is too small even though it isn’t) have nowhere close to what scientists define as a micropenis. Not to mention, according to one of the studies cited, 85 percent of women surveyed said they were satisfied with their partner’s genitals, whereas only 55 percent of men were happy with what nature had given them. In other words, almost half of the men surveyed would like to have a bigger dick.
If these scientific facts do not change your feelings, consider the fact that maybe, like a woman bombarded by photoshopped images of "vixens" who have been surgically enhanced, you may also be comparing yourself to some unreality and suffering needlessly as a result. In fact, one 2005 study appearing in the journal Urology found exactly this to be the case. Of 92 patients who complained of a short penis, almost all of them had “overestimated the normal penile size,” noted the authors. More importantly, not one of these men actually had short penises.
Would I do it again? Hell no, its not worth it. After my penis injury scare I realized that its more embarrassing having to go to the hospital and tell them that I broke my dick in a penis pump than it is to have a average sized dick. After I got laid for the first time at 20 (late bloomer) I realized dick size didn’t even matter to most women and if it did that they aren’t the type of person I would want a relationship with anyways. I now have more self confidence than I did but I don’t contribute any of that to my magnum dong.
A past article we wrote on this blog was about how to have sex if his manhood is too big. In that article, we stressed that size isn’t all that important (when a guy’s penis is big, it’s the positions that matter, not the penis size). However, what we are doing today is presenting clear information about some of the most commonly talked-about size enhancing techniques out there, starting with the penis pump.
Pubic hair grooming in men has increased, with recent surveys finding that 50.5% of men surveyed reported regular pubic hair grooming [20]. While men groom their pubic hair for many different reasons, from regular hygiene to making oral sex easier, improved appearance and making the penis look longer were found to be fairly common reasons for male grooming. Trimming pubic hair, particularly around the base of the penis, may give you the appearance of a larger penis.
Androgen Deprivation Therapy – Androgen deprivation therapy is used to eliminate as much testosterone as possible in the body to treat prostate cancer. This may be done with GnRH or LHRH agonists, which reduce the amount of testosterone in the body or with anti-androgens, which block the use of testosterone by cancer cells. Unfortunately, the reduction of testosterone can cause genital shrinkage [21]. While other treatments are available if you’re worried about shrinkage, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons with your medical professional when making a decision.
These products usually contain vitamins, minerals, herbs or hormones that claim to enlarge the penis. Despite their impressive claims, there's absolutely no clinical evidence that these products work and some may even be harmful. The University of Maryland in the US carried out an analysis on some of these and found traces of lead, pesticides, E. coli bacteria and animal faeces.
For our top ten tips for better sex, read this blog post. Like all body parts, penises come in different shapes and sizes. When erect, many have a natural curve and they point in different directions. Sometimes physical problems do arise and require medical or surgical intervention, so if you are concerned, seek advice from your GP. Studies suggest that men with low self-esteem and a negative body image are more likely to believe that their penis is too small. If you find that you are preoccupied with the size of your penis, to the point that it affects your daily life and causes significant distress, visit your GP who may refer you for specialist help.
But flaccid or erect, penis size depends on the amount of blood flowing through the organ. The more blood, the larger the man looks. Blood flow into the penis depends on the diameter of the arteries that carry blood into it. You want wide open arteries that carry the most blood. Relaxation allows these arteries to open up. Stress and tension constrict them. So men who are relaxed look larger. Please tell your boyfriend that worrying about his size makes him look smaller. If he relaxes about it, he should look larger.

When I personally talk with John Collins and tell him my situation he suggests me to combine penis exercises with his 2-step method which makes sense to me. So after combining my penis exercise routine with Collin’s two-step method I gained 2.3 inches in 6 months and whenever I say anyone that I gained 2.5 in 6 months they get desperate to know about my penis enlargement secret.
A high-quality penis sleeve can provide extra length and girth. “It can also be of help when a man has difficulty maintaining an erection. The problem with many sleeves [...] is that they are made of toxic chemicals and/or are porous, so they can hold bacteria and germs, even HPV. If a man is with multiple partners, these would not want to be shared. My client with lifelong ED swears by his silicone sleeve. Even with his penile implant, he says his wife enjoys the extra length,” says Yelverton.
My husband was feeling exhausted, getting older that happens ! Pharmacist said try adding free testosterone, bought him nugenix for a high price for one month supply, he didn't even notice any difference. Was searching for something else for him to try, after reading many reviews and product descriptions, hours of reading, I decided to get him this, he is on 3rd bottle and feeling better. Hubby is 50, thinks he is 25!
“My advice to men is that before they try any potions, creams, pumps or surgery, improve your technique. You will feel more confident and women will like you a lot more, at least in the bedroom,” says Dr. David Shusterman, MD, the Medical Director of NY Urology. A lot of men don't invest money into the right products that will improve the outcomes. “At every Duane Reade they have what I call a penis enhancement pack; it includes a penis ring with a vibrator on it. The pack is $10 and it will achieve what the men want to achieve without going through surgery,” says Dr. Shusterman. A lot of men want enhancement but it tends to only hurt your sex life, not help. “Most guys regret going through surgical enhancement,” says Dr. Shusterman.
For years urologists have recommended constriction devices ( cock rings, penis rings, erection rings, etc) as a first and least invasive line of defense against impotence and many forms of erection dysfunction. Now, bringing the technology of constriction based male enhancement into the new millennium HARDWEAR introduces a two piece framework for sexual enhancement that allows unmatched power and intensity with an unprecedented level of easy on \ easy off safety that no other cock ring can compete with. That same ground breaking design also makes it the only adjustable metal cock ring, and its attractive shape isn’t only stunning to look at, but is also tailored to fit the male anatomy—tailored to trigger erection response, to allow blood into the penis but to restrict its exit, to slow the climb to ejaculation, giving men the ability to delay and control their orgasm and also amplifying the intensity of the ejaculation\orgasm when it does occur. Nothing on the market, chemical or mechanical, does male enhancement like HARDWEAR does.

As previously noted, gaining weight can result in the penis appearing shorter because the base becomes buried in fat. Liposuction may be used to reduce the pubic fat pad to make the penis appear larger [18]. Studies show that suprapubic liposuction is very safe and successful with minor or no complications when it is performed meticulously, and long with improving associated esthetic concerns, it may help improve self-esteem as well [19].
Alistair took out a £5,000 loan to add to £3,000 of savings, and paid to go under the knife. (Surgery is difficult to obtain on the NHS, though it can be offered for psychological reasons, or to correct a true micropenis.) “It was the worst thing I’ve ever done,” he says. “The pain afterwards… I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t stand. It was beyond anything they told me to expect. The wound got infected, and when they gave me antibiotics, it kept seeping pus. The scarring has barely faded even now.” He says the fat injection became lumpy, while his erection no longer stands straight. “It just doesn’t look right. It’s deformed.”
“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.”
Ben Clark was introduced to Big Al and the Double Long Daddy in the late 1990s after seeing Boogie Nights. Mark Wahlberg’s character is based on John Holmes, perhaps the biggest-dicked porn star of all time. Clark had never thought about the size of his penis — or how he measured up against other guys — but he became a major size queen after watching Wahlberg unfurl his monster cock in the film. He poked around on Lycos, a pre-Google search engine, which turned up a bunch of penis-enlargement spam links. One was a forum administered by Big Al who explained he’d developed a series of exercises proven to add significant length. “I guess you can say that changed everything for me,” Clark says with a laugh. “Big Al has always been a positive influence and inspiration for this industry. I’ve always known him to be honest about what he says and does.”
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.
Trimming. Of course the classic method which needs to be emphasized because it really is probably the simplest of all these techniques, is trimming your pubic hair, mainly around the base of your penis. This will visually make your penis look much larger than when covered up with pubes. Some guys have used this trick in the past, yet simply forgot about it, or they were not consistent with trimming and hence "the forest grew back" covering up the bean stalk.
There is so much misinformation and so many bogus products surrounding penis enlargement that when they discover the solution, no one will believe. So here goes; any male can permanently increase length and girth in the same way a bodybuilder adds mass and becomes larger. As you stress tissue, the body goes into a natural process of creating new cells making you larger. The question is not whether permanent enlargement is possible but instead, how do you safely stress penile tissue to promote cell growth? The answers can be found online at MagnumRings

NONE of these methods has been shown to be effective (or safe) by any reputable scientific studies, and none have been approved by medical institutions or government agencies. Some of the ads punting such products may claim that they are backed by scientific research, but a little digging will quickly show that such research is highly dubious. You can’t trust customer testimonials either.
Is It Actually Effective? There’s conflicting evidence about this, and it’s mainly anecdotal. Some reports suggest success, but more suggest permanent damage was incurred as a result of the procedure. The only major medical research body to give this topic any real consideration eventually decided that there was no evidence that the penis can be permanently enlarged, and that most men would not want to go ahead with the surgery if they knew the risks and dangers involved.
Adrian, I've been using your fat loss workouts & my weight is continually dropping to where I'm beginning to look better naked. 6 weeks ago my stomach flap below my navel, when standing, I could grab two hands full. Well it is now gone and when I got out of the shower this morning, standing straight up I looked down and I can finally see my penis (a much bigger penis!) Mike Meachem
Penile shrinkage can occur for many reasons, many of which we’ve discussed, such as prostate cancer and surgery, erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s disease, or perhaps even aging. In some cases, the use of PDE5 inhibitors, which are erectile dysfunction medications like Viagra, may be used to treat shrinkage. For example, in men dealing with shrinkage due to testosterone deprivation therapy, erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis may be used to manage shortening of the penis by increasing the blood flow to the tissue [22].

All this might be leading to more than simple image anxiety; some have pointed to a new mental-health issue they term penile dysmorphic disorder. “It is a minority of men – and we don’t know how many – but it certainly exists and it’s as damaging as any other body dysmorphia,” says Professor David Veale, of King’s College London, an authority on health anxieties. “These men might seek out surgery, and for a few months they will be happy with the results. But then the same anxieties reappear. So, they seek out further surgery. It becomes a circle. But you cannot keep making your penis bigger. This requires therapy.”


There are a number of additional potential complications associated with these surgeries, including scarring, hair on the base of the penis, a low-hanging penis, impotence, urinary incontinence, persistent pain, infection, sensory loss, excessive bleeding, and even a shorter penis.It may be necessary to undergo additional operations to correct deformities resulting from the initial surgery.

In recent years, researchers at the University of California School of Medicine injected the penis of diabetic rats with adipose tissue-derived stem cells, and the results were the improvement of erectile function as well as an altering of the microarchitecture of the corpus cavernosum with an increase in the number of endothelial cells in this area [13]. Simply put – the rats had harder erections and more tissue. It’s thought that the growth factors caused this improvement, and these are the same types of growth factors found in PRP injections.

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.

To start the stretching, you have to create an ‘OK’ using your thumb and index finger with whatever hand you are going to use for stretching. Wrap your thumb and index finger just below the penis head. Start by stretching out your penis in front of you. Make sure you stretch firmly, not hard as it will cause pain and hold the stretch for 30 minutes. Then, move to your next stretch.

The flip size is I have been with women with incredable vagina's that grip evry inch of my cock and makes it almost impossible not to come without pausing. I have also been with women with large vagina's that don't even come close to feeling as good. My thinking is the reatshi between the cock and vagina is key and you just have to fins the correct fit.

...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.
Anxiety is everywhere, floating freely through the air, passing from person to person like a virus on the wings of a sneeze. While some of us feel nervous about our jobs, our health, or our families, others feel a very personal dread about our own bodies. Preoccupied by physical appearances, we can become distracted from what matters most in life, and turn instead to worrying about some highly specific body part. If, by chance, we zero in on the piece of ourselves most closely associated with intimacy — our genitals — we might shut down entirely.
