Before taking this erect girth measurement, you should make sure your penis is at 100% erect. Hold the penis with one hand, so it is parallel to the ground. Use the other hand to wrap the tape around the penis but don’t pull it too tightly. Usually, average erect girth is around 4.5″ – 5.0″. Measure the erect girth around the penis and note down the measurement.
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.
It's ironic that the male preoccupation with enhancement seems to be independent of the needs of women, the supposed benefactors of improved sexual performance. A recent study found that 85% of women are pleased with their partner's penis proportions, but 45% of men say they want a larger penis. Given that the vast majority of men fall within a certain penis size -- about 5.5 to 6.2 inches long when erect -- most men fall within the normal range.
Vacuum pumps are often used to treat erectile dysfunction because they draw blood into the penis, causing it to swell. Some men have tried to use vacuum pumps to increase size, but routinely using a penis pump or using it longer than typically used to treat ED can result in damage to the elastic tissue of the penis, resulting in less-firm erections. Although a vacuum pump may create the illusion of a larger penis at the time, the results are not permanent [4].
Penis pumps. These plastic tubes create a partial vacuum around the penis. The vacuum draws blood into the organ, resulting in temporary size enhancement. Models differ, but all include a plastic tube and a pump operated by a hand bulb. You squeeze the bulb, which evacuates air from the tube, drawing a little extra blood into the penis. Just remember, the effect is modest and temporary.
Almost all men have a normal size penis – although many young men are concerned that their penis is too short or too small. Sometimes they believe this because they have compared themselves with friends or classmates in a common shower or locker room, or maybe someone teased them or made a hurtful comment. Or they might have seen pornographic pictures or movies and compared themselves with the porno “stars” (many of whom have unusually large genitalia).

Lengthening the penis. The most common procedure is to cut the ligament that connects the penis to the pelvic bone. This allows a little more of the shaft -- on average less than an inch -- to become visible outside the body. It's not really lengthening the penis so much as revealing more of what's usually hidden. To prevent the ligament from reattaching, a guy would need weights or stretching devices daily for about six months.

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.

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.
People get fillers and injections for all sorts of cosmetic reasons, but you can also get injections in your penis. "I have so many patients who come in stressing about the size of their penis when, in reality, the relationship between size and sexual satisfaction is a myth. The average vagina length is 5 inches, which is less than average penis size in America, which is 5.5 inches. What most men don’t realize is that when it comes to sexual satisfaction, girth is more important than length. There are things men can do to enhance their girth but it won’t come in the form of pill, and although penis pumps can improve an erection, they don’t help with overall size. Also, penis exercises are not totally validated to increase size. Sorry guys! But, there are solutions,” says Dr. Muhammad Mirza, sexual men's health expert and founder of ErectileDoctor.com.
There are several surgical treatments, most of which carry a risk of significant complications.[6] Procedures by unlicensed surgeons can lead to serious complications.[7] Risky surgical treatments include subcutaneous fat injection, division of the suspensory ligament, and the injection of dermal fillers, silicone gel, or PMMA.[8][9] The American Urological Association (AUA) and the Urology Care Foundation "consider subcutaneous fat injection for increasing penile girth to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious. The AUA also considers the division of the suspensory ligament of the penis for increasing penile length in adults to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious."[10] Dermal fillers are also not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the penis.[11]
Thankfully, I’ve avoided the emergency room. After six weeks of daily rice socks and side-side-stretching, my penis has, in fact, lengthened. I’m embarrassed to admit how satisfying it felt to notch six inches on my ruler. And I’m confident those increases would continue if I stuck with Big Al, but I think I’ll stop here. After all, as Nelson explains, the average penis is 5.16 inches, so at just over 6, I’m already in the 70th percentile. “You’re an inch bigger than average and thick,” he says. “Holy shit, what more do you want?”
“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.
Shaking your penis. This is another simple and effective method, and perhaps the quickest of them all. Instead of tugging or stretching, just give your penis several gentle shakes. Think of it as "waking your penis up". Just like any other body part that becomes stiff or remains stagnant for long periods of time, we like to shake these parts, wake them up, and in turn they go from stiff to stretched out and elongated. Same thing works for your penis. Shake him out some and not ony does the tissue become stretched, but blood flow will increase some which also creates larger size.
Doctors view the penial pump or Vacuum Erection Devices — as a safe, effectual, cost-effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. According to American Urological Association, these devices may also be useful in cases where such PDE5 drugs as Viagra have failed to work. In addition, the most up-to-date evidence strongly suggests that the prolonged use of these devices will enhance the size of your penis permanently.
My only concern was TIME. Many people reporting they are getting only 0.25-0.50 inch increase after whole year. I don’t know about you but for me these are not type of results that I want. I want something quick so my research lands me to John Collin’s Penis Enlargement Bible that talks about 2-step method for penis growth. At first I was skeptical about it but then again when I saw couple of real people testimonials I decided to give it a try mainly because it comes with 60-days guarantee.

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.

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.
“I hate to say it, but I think Elist is wrong,” counters male sexuality educator Paul Nelson, who wonders if Elist is confused with penis pumps, because Nelson says gains with penile extenders are absolutely permanent. There may be some retraction if you’re using it every day and suddenly stop, but most of it, he promises you’ll retain. Nelson agrees that jelqing could be dangerous, though, particularly for guys who believe that “some is good and more is better” and jelq too hard. “He may finish a jelqing session and think, That was good, let me do it again harder. And a little bit more next time. The next thing he knows, he’s got snapped nerves, torn tunicas and all kinds of devastating injuries.”
My boyfrien is 6'1" tall and he weights 247 pounds now, he has been on a diet and lost 35 pounds already and yes he has been better in bed but in the outside he still doesn't look at the way he wants (I would appreciate too if his penis can look bigger),you said that quit meat and we have been doing that for a year, he doesn't smoke neither, his problem is his sedentary life even that he is trying to walk and do exercise more often now.
I’ve had working girls take pics on their phone, I’ve had a girl call the maid in to take a look (that was sexy), I’ve had a girl who didn’t offer full sex, offer full sex “because I want to see what it feels like” and I have had freebies. I ended up seeing a legit Chinese therapist for after-hours sex, because “when I saw your dick it turned me on so much.” No money changed hands. (A tip: Asian women are always interested, as the average Asian guy is smaller than most Westerners. When I unleash my hose, they can’t believe it – but, be warned, I have been turned down for full sex twice by Thai girls who said I was too big.”
Though generously endowed by nature and confident enough in his body to have appeared in some adult films in his 20s, O’Connor decided to enhance his girth in 2013. “It was just something I fancied,” he says with a shrug. “Some men have hair transplants or belly tucks. I wanted a truncheon in my pants. My whole life I’ve enjoyed impressing women; this was just an extension of that. You could call it a gentlemanly thing to do.”
Results from a study of over 4,000 men from the Archives of Sexual Behaviour, found that one of the keys to a happy sex life could be something as simple as self-acceptance. They used the ‘Index of Male Genital Image’ (IMGI) to study the men’s perceptions of their genital size, and perhaps unsurprisingly the men who were dissatisfied with their genital size were less likely to report being sexually active.
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 [26]. 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 [27].
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.”
Herbal remedies, Kegels (pelvic floor exercises — learn more here), and exercises have all been mentioned as potential ways to make your penis bigger. However, we’ve searched and searched for medical evidence that these techniques will work to grow your penis, but there’s simply zero, zilch, nada, no evidence. You may find lots of unverified anecdotes, which come from a sample size of one, but they simply cannot be trusted. After all, no one on the internet knows you’re a dog (or liar). We recommend that you avoid these techniques.

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.
One of the questions that gets asked a lot is about finding something that will permanently extend the size of your penis. Nothing, other than painful and not always successful surgery, can permanently extend the size of your penis.  The American Urological Association [6] does not promote penis augmentation surgery as effective or beneficial. Sometimes, these surgeries even leave the penis smaller than before [7].

At the end of the second week, I woke up to find that I could no longer get hard. I assumed maybe I overworked it, whatever. This lasted for five days and I was panicking. The day I went to a clinic to find out what was wrong, I was finally getting erections again at about 30%. They referred me to a urologist and I explained to him what happened. He said to take a rest for 6 weeks, hopefully everything will be okay.


The physiological goal of Big Al’s program is to expand the spongy bodies of the penis — known as the corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum — while simultaneously stretching the tunica that holds those spongy bodies and spreading the suspensory ligaments that anchor the penis to the pubis. Cell walls grow and expand with each exercise session, Big Al tells me, and the compound effect over time is increased length. “One-third to one-half of the entire length of the penile body is hidden behind the pubis,” he notes. “Lengthening exercises like the Side-to-Side Stretch permanently expand these ligaments, allowing more of the inner penis to be exposed, and thereby, lengthening the measurable portion of the penis.”

Salvini moonlights as a pastor and views Matters of Size as a Christian brotherhood — it’s tribal, he says. Men call each other “brother,” which makes it feel like a family rather than a business. The most common issue, he says, is men who were mocked about the size of their dick. “That’s 80 percent of it,” he says. “A lot of women are vindictive and know exactly what to shoot for to hurt a man. If you have a six-inch dick, she’s gonna say it’s eight inches and stroke your ego when she falls in love with you. But when the relationship ends and she suddenly hates you, she’ll deduct two inches and go around saying you have a four-inch nubby cock. That’s just the way it is.”

Brandon Bartling, store manager of The Pleasure Chest, an erotic store located in New York City's West Village, understands this as well. His store carries any number of products that cater to this manly desire, everything from dietary supplements to a “penis extender, which is a sleeve that you literally wear over your penis to increase length and girth. Kind of like a thick, firm condom in a phallus shape,” he told Medical Daily in an email. He added his customers tell him that “the Blue Wolf pills work the best to help boost one’s ability to obtain firmer, longer lasting erections, while others swear by the Bathmates line of Hydromax and Hercules pumps.”
