Atherosclerosis, a condition in which fatty deposits build up inside arteries, may restrict blood flow to the penis and cause erection difficulties. "The small blood vessels that go to the penis can become diseased much earlier than the [larger] vessels that go to the heart," Karen Boyle, MD, a urologist at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, tells WebMD. "In younger or younger middle-aged men, ED is often the first sign of atherosclerosis."
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.
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?”
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.
How Does it Work? There are a few different types of penis enlargement surgery based on different principles and on the desired outcome. One method is to transplant fatty tissues from elsewhere in the body into the shaft of the penis – this can be successful but is described as being “visually odd”, and the results often disappear within a year as the fat is metabolized. Another technique is to disconnect some supporting ligaments. Reports suggest that this can offer a few fractions of an inch in length, but leave the erection pointing down and not up.
And if you're worrying about your size pleasing your partner, remember that penetration is just one part of sex, and everyone's preferences are different. Many women don't even orgasm from penile-vaginal sex, for instance, and other people don't care very much about size or length. The size of your penis could possibly be unrelated entirely to your partner's ability to experience pleasure.
Chances are, even if you are well endowed, that you’d like to make your dick bigger. It’s basically just the way the male brain ticks, that guys with big dicks want to be titanic, and average hung guys would like to be really big, and small guys… well for small guys the matter tends to become something of an obsession that can lead to painful surgery, injurious penis...

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.
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.
It's not clear if "Stiff Nights" is a "dietary supplement" as its maker claims, or a bad b-movie title, but in either case the FDA says men looking to "regain the thunder" should stay clear because the pill really contains sulfoaildenafil, an untested chemical similar to the active ingredient in Viagra, which can interact badly with nitrates and cause low blood pressure.
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.

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.

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.
Cock Rings. These rubber donut-shaped devices tightly encircle the erect penis. Typically used to help maintain erection, they also provide a small--temporary--size boost. Flaccid or erect, blood circulates in and out of the penis. One of the veins that carries blood out runs close to the organ's skin (on top). A ring restricts outflow somewhat by compressing this vein. Don't expect miracles. Any effect is modest and temporary.
Penile girth surgery can involve a range of controversial techniques, such as injecting fat taken from other parts of the body. Whilst some studies claim an increase in girth of between 1.4 and 4cm, patients frequently report scarring, disfigurement, lumpiness, even infection. The body usually reabsorbs the injected fat, so the penis soon returns to its original size.
While all three of our proven penis enlargement techniques provide increased thickness – and that wider girth enlarges in proportion as your penis gets engorged from arousal, Morganstern offers two different procedures that provide increase in your length – and increased length occurs with both your erect and flaccid state although not in direct proportion to the longer size. Typically? Your increased length during an erect state will be roughly half the increased length you see when flaccid. Thus, if you gained two inches in length when not aroused – you could expect about an inch more size when erect.

Interestingly, studies suggest that men attribute more importance to penis size than their female partners. Generally, what is more, important to women is a partner who is tender and caring. Discovering how your partner likes to be touched and caressed tends to make for better sex. The idea that a woman’s priority during sex is to be penetrated by a giant penis isn’t that accurate. In fact, it’s not the inside of the vagina where most of the pleasurable sensations come from, it’s on the outside, at the clitoris, where the most sensitive parts of a woman’s body can be found. You don’t need a big penis (or any penis) to stimulate her there. During intercourse, a woman’s vagina adapts to her partner’s penis, deepening, widening and lubricating during sexual arousal, so in this sense, the size is not so important. Also, a smaller penis is often preferable for oral and anal sex.
