Let’s face it, there’s not a single man out there who hasn’t at some point in their life snuck a sly glance in the locker room or let their attention wander during their favourite porn film, towards another guys jutting member for a quick comparison. Penis size is a sensitive, personal, mysterious and much joked about topic, and if you’ve caught yourself wondering if you have the proverbial ‘small penis’ syndrome, you’re certainly not alone.

Dick envy is such a singularly male compulsion simply because it’s hard to judge another guy’s package to compare on a day to day basis. There’s no shortage of women who glare jealously at another girl’s chest, but it’s not such an all consuming concern for them because breasts are more or less out there for everyone to see. Somehow, the uncertainty of not being quite sure whether you’re packing the same as every other man out there is the real killer. Breast enhancement – and reduction – surgery is commonplace and not at all as controversial as it once was, and small penis enlargement is rapidly heading in the same direction, if not already there. However, the difference is that men don’t have to go under the knife to get an extra few inches. There are a large range of options available to a guy who’s feeling a little lacking, including medical supplements, exercise, stretching devices, and penis pumps. Penis Enlargement
But, before we jump straight to the solutions, let’s consider a few facts, figures and fears on the subject of small penises and why it might or might not be a good idea to consider enlargement.
Setting the Stereotypes Straight
If you have been sneaking the odd eyeful in the locker room while your buddies are in the shower, chances are that any conclusions you’ve drawn are inaccurate, unless your friends have a habit of getting fully erect mid-shower. Flaccid penis size varies dramatically between different men, and often has no bearing on the erect length. This is where the term ‘a grower not a shower’ comes in. Just because the weight lifter in the corner has a small penis while he’s towelling dry doesn’t mean it’s not 8” plus when he’s aroused, and the chubby man on the bench might be sporting a hefty 5” while flaccid, but show him a dirty magazine and it might barely lengthen at all.
Another interesting area of penis size is making the most of your length. A small penis stays a small penis whatever fitness or weight a guy is, but its length can be partially obscured by extra fat deposits around the hip and pubic area. Slimming down if you’re carrying a little extra weight can help your member look a little more impressive, as well as helping your health.
The well-endowed studs in porn are a source of a lot of guys’ insecurities and small penis size, simply because the majority of a guy’s exposure to other men’s cocks is a by-product of watching their favourite videos and concentrating on the big cock sliding in and out of the man or woman spreading their legs for them. Obviously, erotic film studios choose their actors based on a couple of very important attributes: penis size, and stamina. The ability to keep thrusting away for hours is just as important as an actor being genitally gifted. Lighting and carefully chosen camera angles help give this effect, and while it can’t be denied that these men are well-hung, it’s important to remember that they are the pick of the crop as far as inches are concerned. A trick that is often used in the industry is shaving pubic hair, which can sometimes give the illusion of adding a little extra.
However, chances are that you’re reading this thinking: that’s all very well, but fancy lighting and some extra exercise can only help me so much. At this point, perhaps it’s a good idea to get a little more technical.
You can twist and turn in front of a mirror for as long as you want, but the only way to be sure how long your penis is must be to get out the measuring tape and put a number to it. There are a lot of accepted ways to measure penis length, and no one seems to have laid down the rules for the best way to start. Most men agree that you should start from the base of the penis at the top, and measure when fully erect to the tip of the penis.
Once you have your magic number, it’s still a fairly mystical process to identify where you lie on the scale of size. Average penis size will never give an accurate number until every man in the world is measured, because of the imprecision of testing. Surveys and questionnaires that require men to provide their size verbally don’t allow for human error in measuring or the pride of the man in question. Imagine a pretty lab technician asking for your length and girth and you can see why some guys add a couple of inches in the heat of the moment. Even research that requires participants to be measured in a controlled environment aren’t 100% reliable, because the range of men who are likely to apply to be tested will contain more test subjects smuggling a penis to be proud of than those who are hiding a tiny dick.
Average sizes are also based on country and ethnic origin, and just as importantly: age. Men can lose up to an inch of their penis size as they edge into old age. Generally the average size in
Do Inches Matter? Penis Enlargement
The answer to this is simple: don’t obsess over the number. What is commonly agreed to be much more important is how the size of your penis makes you feel. If the subject of size is always on your mind and knowing the facts hasn’t made you feel any more at ease, you should probably at least seriously consider penis enlargement. If it’s bothering you so intensely, it may help you psychologically whether you’re below or above average, and it’s an option that’s worth looking into to decide whether or not it’s for you.
Before you make a decision though, you should sit down and carefully think about your motivation, and the root causes of your self-consciousness that’s leading you to think of penis enlargement. A guy is usually insecure for one or a few of the following reasons:
1. To Impress Other Men...
No one’s saying that you’d unzip you jeans and slap your dick on the table to show off to your friends if you were 8 inches long, but an insecurity about having a small penis is often the cause of speaking with other guys. Sometimes this begins at school with bullying, but huge cock boasts don’t end in the classroom. Judging a guy’s power by their physical traits is a nod to our animal roots, but it has an important subconscious effect as the size of another man’s penis is seen to reflect their testosterone, sexual virility, and their dominance. Although it has no proven effect on a man’s performance socially, economically or athletically, studies have shown that a lot of people assume successful men have large members and that knowing the size of someone’s penis makes others react differently to them. A good example is that no one expects David Beckham or Peyton Manning to have a two incher hanging between their legs, purely based on their achievements in the sporting field. It’s important to remember that unless you personally have seen what another man’s packing, you have no idea whether they’re exaggerating or not. It might seem like penis enlargement is a good option because you’ll feel more of a man when you tell your best mate that your latest conquest said they’d never had someone so big in his or her life, but they have no idea if you’re lying or not.
2. For The Benefit Of A Partner...
This one’s a bit complicated. Let’s say that you have a regular partner who has made derogatory comments about your length in the past, and you want to do something about it. There’s bound to be an element of truth to their complaints, as they probably wouldn’t risk saying and hurting your pride unless it really bothered them. Small penis enlargement for the sake of another person is an admirable concept, but always remember that it’s your body and therefore your decision.
There are some cases where the penis might be small enough that a partner is not getting properly stimulated. Both the G-Spot and the prostate gland are a few inches in and therefore may not be correctly reached by a very small penis. Width or girth is also an issue, as many women claim that it is more important than length to them.
If you’re thinking of penis enlargement for the benefit of lovers you haven’t even met yet, the same issues apply, but having a larger dick might give you a boost of confidence when you drop your pants and her eyes widen. Despite what size you are, if you’re nervous about it then it tends to show and you might find yourself imagining disappointment in your prospective partner’s eyes. One night stands put more emphasis on penis size because they want to get as much enjoyment out of your time together as possible, although no one is likely to start pulling on clothes and leave if you’re not as big as they expected.
3. For Self Confidence...
Penis enlargement for the sake of giving a helping hand to a guy’s own self confidence is the best motivation by far. This applies to any form of physical self improvement, but if a small penis is affecting your confidence it might be easier to fix than you think. This kind of insecurity can affect not only a man’s sexual prowess, but other parts of his day to day life too. There are a number of options available to you, even if surgery sounds a bit too extreme.
The most natural approach to penis enlargement is a series of exercises designed to improve the size of a small penis. There are several different techniques that aim to effect the penis in different ways, such as ‘Jelq’, that improves circulation to the penis and therefore gain an increased blood flow in the erectile tissue, exercises that stretch the suspensory ligaments and enlarge length, and ‘kegels’, which also help blood flow, but by contracting and releasing the muscles of the pelvic floor.
For best results all of these techniques should be used together, and usually involve repetitions of simple movements that exercise certain muscles in the shaft or head. Because they rely on strengthening and improving the body, natural small penis enlargement exercises need a carefully designed structure and system just like any exercising routine. Unfortunately, the internet is saturated with these exercises, and it’s very difficult to identify which are professionally designed and therefore which will get the best results. To ensure a quality exercise routine, money will probably have to change hands with someone who knows what they’re doing, so this shouldn’t be termed the ‘cheap and easy’ option. Results – if they come – are usually not dramatic even after extended persistence, and tend to affect flaccid penis length rather than erect length.
Another danger of the ‘natural’ approach to penis enlargement is that it may seem like the most fun choice – you’d be hard pushed to find a guy who loathed the thought of spending an hour or two a day playing with his dick – too much enthusiasm can cause damage. This can range from mild bruising and soreness to sharp pain and in some cases permanent damage. If penis enlargement exercises sound like the best choice, make sure you spend the money on a correct training routine.
2. Vacuum Pumps
Vacuum pumps aim to enlarge a small penis by placing a plastic tube around the penis and creating a vacuum around it that draws more blood into the erectile tissue than would normally be held there. After repetitive use, the tissue adapts to automatically store more blood than it would naturally, adding girth and length to the penis. With pumps, the decision of whether or not it’s a good choice of enlargement rests with how regularly the pump is used. Extra length and girth is gained to a noticeable degree when the pump is applied, although this gradually reduces over time once it is removed. With regular use, erections are larger than normal between pump usages, however this is not permanent and pumping must be continued to retain these gains.
Some aspects of vacuum pumps to consider are that the penis can become less sensitive after the pumps application and that in some cases circumcised patients have found that the foreskin begins to re-grow with extended use. Over-use of a vacuum pump can rupture blood vessels in the shaft and head that cause dark bruises, and even internal haemorrhages. The elastic ligaments in the penis can also become damaged, giving softer, less persistent erections that may even become reliant of vacuum pumping to occur at all.
Vacuum pumps do give the user an enlarged penis size, both in terms of girth and length and sometimes up to 50% of the original size. However, improvements are never permanent and enlargement requires persistence and a quality vacuum pump.
3. Stretching Applications
Devices that stretch the penis to enlarge it operate by placing two bands – one around the head and one around the base of the penis – on the shaft and adjusting the length of the poles that separate the bands. The human body is designed to adapt, and cells along the shaft will multiply to lessen the strain between the two bands of the stretcher. Over time, this adds to the length of the penis.
Gains tend to be in length rather than girth because of the shape of the device and the direction that the penis is being stretched in, but on average users gain an inch in length on a short term basis. Stretching devices require long periods of wearing, but this can be up to twelve hours at a time, or only two, as long as the routine of stretching is consistent. Improvements can be measured by the total number of hours the device is worn no matter how long each bout of stretching takes, and because of the fixed nature of a stretching device, penis enlargement requires relatively little active involvement from the subject – there’s certainly no need to waste hours of a day rubbing in creams or tensing in business meetings.
Stretching has been scientifically proven to get results of varying degrees, and most importantly: changes in length are permanent. This fact might have been the one to catch your eye so far, which is unsurprising considering the vague guarantees and temporary nature of the majority of small penis enlargement techniques. Subjects of penis enlargement surgery are usually required to wear stretching devices, as it ensures that the damaged tissue lengthens and grows in the right direction, and although undamaged tissue will not grow as quickly, eventually similar gains in length can be guaranteed without prior surgery as the penis adapts.
Like all methods of enlargement, stretching has its dangers. Nerve damage can occur after extended use, and the reduction of blood flow to the penis head can cause damage if the furthest band of the stretching device is too tight. These can be easily avoided by periods of recovery between stretching sessions – just as you would allow muscles to recover and re-knit after extensive work-outs – and it is unlikely to gain serious damage from reduced blood flow without noticing the warning signs and discolouration of the penis skin first.
Stretching devices have a wide range of price tags attached, but the design is relatively simple. Potential users should be severely warned off making their own simply because all commercially available stretchers will have been tested before they’re made available to the public, but stretchers don’t have to cost thousands to be effective. The Koala Penis Enlargement System is an example of a relatively simple system that costs less than $40 and can be worn beneath loose fitting clothing. Many enlargement devices are designed this way so that stretching isn’t limited to the home, and all are easily adjustable to promote gradual growth. Stretching devices are an excellent choice as long as you abide by the Slow and Steady Wins the Race rule, which will give you the extra inches you desire without any risk as long as you just take it slow and let your penis recover between stretches.
4. Supplements and Pills
We’ve all had the emails about pills ‘guaranteed to increase your size’, often boasting of pills with nothing more than natural ingredients and innocents vitamins packed inside those tiny pills. The truth is that there are no genuine scientific studies that prove that pills and supplements give permanent results, even if you opt for more professional suppliers. Sure the vitamins might give you a little more bounce in your step, but any increases in penis size are negligible, and most likely coincidental. Usually any results involve more powerful, firm erections, as the ingredients are aimed at increasing blood flow and natural male hormones such as testosterone, but this is enthusiasm rather than size. That said, supplements produced by professional companies that have been tested and trialled will not cause any negative effects and might improve general sexual health.
Obviously, surgery is best considered after the other options, because of the costs and dangers associated with it. Lengthening the penis is brought about by cutting the ligaments that support the penis, therefore allowing the ‘hidden’ portion of the shaft held within the body to protrude further from the base of the penis. There are therefore limits to the amount of length that can be gained from this procedure, and many cosmetic surgeons refuse to carry it out because of the debatable enlargement that results from it, which is on average only an inch of increased length.
As the body has been damaged during the surgery, the ligaments will heal, which can sometimes cause scarring inside the penis that will actually negate any increased length, or even reduce the size. As mentioned before, stretching is required to avoid this, and to try to maximise any gains in length, and because the ligaments previously supported the structure of the penis, the angle of erection is often different and less firm. Despite these dangers, if you opt for a certified surgeon with a wealth of experience in the area, the chances of any damage being caused are minimal, and less than 10% of men do not gain any length at all. Unfortunately, the penis is only enlarged when flaccid, while erect length remains very similar if not the same as prior to the operation. Surgery costs can vary dramatically, but $3000 is an average cost for lengthening with a professional, trustworthy surgeon.
The girth of the penis can also be enlarged, which is a separate operation and genuinely considered much safer and more effective. Fat is grafted from other areas of the body to the shaft of the penis, which causes increases in width when both flaccid and erect. This is a much more reliable operation with results that are almost guaranteed, however if it’s inches that you’re missing from your length, surgery is probably not the best option.
The emphasis here is very much on the individual. People respond to different approaches with varying degrees of success, and what works for a friend might not work for you. Choosing to add length or girth is a decision that shouldn’t be rushed into, and should be attempted for the right reasons. Other men might not be as unsympathetic as you think – and more likely have at least once in their lives shared your fears – so it’s always worth speaking to someone else before you decide.
The limited risks and more likely results of stretching make it an attractive option, especially when length increases are permanent and it only involves making your body naturally stretch. It takes significantly less effort from the guy trying to enlarge his member, but it’s important to remember that all approaches to small penis enlargement require a lot of dedication, patience and care in order to get results. Over enthusiasm can be your worst enemy, so if you don’t want to hurt yourself or worse, cause permanent damage, take things slow and accept that improvements won’t be instantaneous. So, if you’ve decided to undertake penis enlargement, do your research, choose carefully, and give the more natural options a go before you head straight for something drastic!
