As the name implies, the traction method involves the phallus being placed in an extender and then stretched daily. One team of researchers quoted in the study reported average growth of 0.7 inches (flaccid) in participants who used the method for four to six hours each day over four months. Another team reported an average increase of nearly an inch (0.9 inches, flaccid) plus some slight improvement in girth after similar treatments lasting a course of six months.
Tanya (San Diego, California)—My fiancé’s penis size has always been something of a hush, hush topic for me because, having been with larger men in the past, he’s just over five and a quarter inches long and just under 4 inches around, I missed the intensity of the sex I used to have with larger endowed lovers from the past. I know is size is average, on the smaller side of average. And it’s not that he couldn’t give me an orgasm (sometimes), the thing about Travis (let’s call him that for the sake of this letter) is that he’s very focused and works very hard to please me. He knows what to do with his tongue and fingers and even his penis, but it’s always just been a matter of him working within his means. Before any guys read this and think that I’m just being a selfish bitch, it’s not like that. I never did reveal to Travis that his penis size was a problem for me, and I never ever would have. His feelings are very important to me, so I would have just gone on silently longing for the big hard intensity that I missed from the past.
Big pharma companies don’t publish what’s going on in their secret labs, but we are sure they would come up with some sort of enlargement pill if it would be possible. Viagra was a sensational success for Pfizer, any medication for penile enhancement would become a bestseller, too, a patent worth billions. Doesn’t look like this will ever happen, there is no imaginable way how a pill could increase size.
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 [14]. While this study showed good results, more studies are necessary.
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.
Penis extenders and traction devices are other options often advertised to make your penis bigger, and they are designed to stretch the penis by exerting traction on it. One small study done on 23 men saw a small increase in both flaccid penile length and stretched penile length after using a penile extender [7]. Another small study on 15 patients saw more significant gains in length after six months of using penile extenders, along with improvements in erectile function [8]. It’s important to note that both of these studies are very small, and while they look promising, further studies on penis extension and penis stretching are needed.
For men who do have concerns about their penis size, doctors suggest that they start by losing weight. Although your penis won’t actually get bigger, losing weight can reduce this pad of fat around the pubic bone, exposing more of the penis and making it appear larger [17]. Even though it might not make your penis look longer, changes in your body can make it look that way.
Well, you are right – no pills or pump can increase penis size. But the thing is that men still use them and do you know why? Because of a hype and a believe. It can be a Placebo Effect or a real thing but men do feel more confided in bed when they use male enhancement products and it looks kike this is what matters at the end of the day. The more confident a man is the better it performs naked.

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.


Panic is the anti-answer, so let’s end that now. Like any situation, this one demands some straight up facts, so let’s begin there. The first and most important fact is to forget what you’ve seen in photographs, in movies, or on the web. Based on a sample of 1,661 guys, the average self-reported erect penis length is 5.6 inches. Technically, according to the Mayo Clinic, a penis is not even considered small unless it measures less than three inches when erect.
When you do Kegel exercises, you can target, train and strengthen your pelvic muscles. “Strengthening your pelvic muscles improves sexual performance, reverses or prevents erectile dysfunction, promotes urinary health (incontinence and overactive bladder), and benefits prostate health by providing increased blood flow,” says Rybchin. “Once you achieve initial pelvic muscle strength, you then add the resistance training — a resistance ring and weights. As you get stronger, you then add the additional weight.”
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
