The average penis size is a question which has always bothered men of any race and civil status and even women are also get concerned in that that they want to be sure that their partner has the right size. It is said that size does not matter but then it is also a fact that size becomes obsession to people generally. Penis size is blamed when a partner is not satisfied after sex. If orgasm is not achieved by the woman, the size of the penis is usually questioned and at this time, the man starts asking himself if he has the normal size or if he has a small penis that needs to be increased in length and girth. Size does not matter but many men still worry about the size of their sexual tools. This trend leads most men to find ways on how to enlarge their penis size believing that they are either small in size or just average. Confidence level takes a nosedive as men realize that they have this problem
Jelqing is a penis enhancement technique aimed to making the penis larger by exercising the smooth muscle and other tissues in the penis, with the aim of perpetually augmenting the maximum erect penis size. This method is also called milking and involves covering the thumb and index finger around the penis while the penis is 70% erect and repeatedly pulling them away from one’s body to force blood into the glans, thus encouraging more vascularity in the corpus cavernosum and other related tissues. Jelqing is preceded by a warm-up with hot towels on the genitals, and finished similarly. The aim of the warm-up is to copy the normal system of the biological processes of the penis which occur at the four stages of arousal. Note that the third stage is heat. During this stage the smooth muscles of the ‘glans’ can more or less stretch to their greatest potential size. Surgical methods Surgical techniques used for penis lengthening known as enhancement phalloplasty and penis widening which is girth enhancement have been in the urologic literature for many years.
Penis girth enlargement surgery The method involves injection of silicone, PMMA, and other material substances in the penis and scrotum, to get girth enlargement. Research done on penile augmentation surgery confirms that surgical methods used to thicken the penis are far more effective than those aimed to increase the penis length. In the research sample of men studied, flaccid circumference following the above procedure had increased from an average of 3.1 inches to an average of 4.1 inches, whilst erect penile circumference increased from an average of 4.1 inches before the surgery to 4.8 inches after surgery although it is irreversible and may have bad side effects like loss of sensation, scarring, deformation and inability to perform penetrative intercourse. Penis length enlargement surgery About one-third to one-half of the penis is inside the body, where it is internally attached to the under surface of the pubic bone. Penis lengthening surgery involves the release of the fundiform ligament and the suspending ligament that attaches the two erectile bodies to the pubic bone. These ligaments make the penis arch under the pubic bone. The release of this ligament allows the penis to project on a straighter path, further outward to give impression of a longer physical appearance. With the penis on stretch, the ligament is divided close to the pubic bone until all mid line attachments have been freed. Once these ligaments have been cut, part of the penile shaft (usually held within the body) drops forward and extends out, enlarging the penis by 2-3 cm (0.78-1.18 in.). This penile lengthening is not a common or safe procedure because of high risk of losing the ability to have an erection. It can only safely be practiced during implantation of penile prostheses in patients with erectile dysfunction or Peyronie’s disease. Surgeons can only expose the penis more outside the body with visible results in obese patients and those with different deformities of penile skin in which the penis is layered.
Inflatable implants Inflatable implants method replaces the two corpora cavernosa with inflatable penile implants. This is done as a therapeutic surgery for men suffering from total impotence; an implanted pump in the groin or scrotum can be operated by hand to fill these cylinders from an implanted reservoir to achieve an erection. The replacement cylinders are mostly sized to be like the corpus cavernosa, but bigger ones can be implanted. The main advantage to this surgery is that an erection can be achieved when desired and for as long as is desired and as firm as required. Note that this surgical procedure can never be reversed.
Cosmetic Without attempting to change the actual size of the penis, one can easily make it appear bigger, by trimming the pubic hair or by losing weight.
Pills Penis enlargement pills, penis patches or ointments are always offered online. Tests done by Flora Research of California and the University of Maryland have found some harmful contaminants in a number of penis enlargement pills. These included dangerous E. coli bacteria, mould, pesticides, yeast and lead. An authority from the University of Maryland has described herbal pills marketed as having heavy fecal contamination, most likely from animals grazing near the plants harvested for herbal ingredients. Penis pump The penis pump is a type of cylinder that is fitted on the penis, using a manual or motorized pump to achieve suction. As the pump creates a partial vacuum around the penis, blood is drawn into the penis, helping it to become big. When the vacuum increase, the difference between the inner blood-pressure and the pump pressure increases. High pressure causes vascular damage rather than a stiff penis. Penis pumps of vacuum pump type are used in treatment of impotence. The pump as described above are often made to higher standards of quality with a much higher price and arrangements are made for distribution by suppliers of medical equipment. Often flexible compression rings called cock rings are added. When fitted on the open end of the cylinder, an erection is created by pumping. These the rings are pushed by hand onto the base of the erect penis before releasing the vacuum. The rings restrict out flow of blood from the penis but not in, enabling the erection to be achieved even when there are problems of vascular or nervous system which would otherwise lead to immediate loss of erection. In the best circumstances erections can be maintained for long periods although manufacturers recommend that rings should be removed after 30 minutes for safety. The pumping must be done correctly otherwise serious injury can occur. Sustained pumping can rupture blood vessels and cause blisters. Testicles have unexpectedly been pulled into the cylinder causing severe pain and injury. The cylinder rim can cut into the skin and after time cause damage to the ligaments surrounding the penis. Pumping without reading manufacture’s guide may cause too much suction and cause permanent and irreparable damage to penis. People have been known to use vacuum cleaners for this purpose which has resulted in serious injuries because the vacuum cleaners produce too much suction. The usefulness of these penis pumps was analyzed by Kazem, Hosseini and Alizadeh. They studied 37 men with penis lengths less than 10 cm and found no major changes in penis length after using pumps for six months, but other studies found 30% satisfaction with the pumps. Another study conducted by the Department of Urology at St Peter’s Hospitals and the Institute of Urology in London checking the effectiveness of pumps to correct the penile curvature associated with Peyronie’s disease found that,there was a clinically and statistically major improvement in penile length, angle of curvature and pain after 12 weeks of using the vacuum pump. In this exercise, patients with Peyronie’s did two ten minute pumping sessions every day for twelve weeks. This penis length was an unexpected side effect and not one of the intended aims of the research, but large enough to be statistically significant.
This method consists of applying a penis stretcher or extender to the penis for certain periods. The appliance exerts a constant traction on the penis theoretically lengthening and widening the penis. The stretching causes the cells in the penis to divide and expand. A study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research reported that penis extenders are effective at elongating the penis and also increases in length correlate with the length of time the appliance is worn. Another study done at the University of Turin and published in the British Journal of Urology portrayed like results. The method used was a penile extender putting a progressive and without interruption increasing traction force on the penis. This appliance consists of a plastic ring in which the penis is placed with two dynamic metallic rods which exert the traction. After using the appliance for a minimum of four hours each day for six months, the average increase in length in flaccid state was 2.3 cm, with major improvement of erectile function level and treatment satisfaction levels of acceptable to good improvement in all items, except for penile girth, where there was no major change.
Clamping is a very risky and dangerous method. The aim of clamping is to enlarge the girth of the penis. This method uses a compressing item such as a string or a tight cock ring. The item is firmly tied, clamped, or put, respectively, on the base of the erect penis while extended masturbation is done on a firmly erect penis. Using a metal cock ring is dangerous because trapped blood in the penis can make it impossible to remove the rings without amputation or emergency intervention such as sawing the ring off. Clamping must be considered extremely dangerous by both practitioners and the medical community as it can cause irreversible catastrophic injury to the penis
Hanging is likely the oldest self-applied technique of penis enlargement, with evidence showing that it was practiced by certain African tribes a long time ago. Weight hanging consists of attaching usually a rope or a strap that grips the glans or just behind the glans and allows a weight to be suspended for a certain amount of time. A deliberate effort is made to exercise the penis by raising the weight in repetitions beginning with the lightest weight to the heaviest to increase the strength and stamina as well as lengthening of the penis. Weight hanging; carry serious risks, which may include chronic pain, nerve damage, scarring and impotence. The level of these risks is substantially increased if the patient is not directly trained by a qualified certified therapist..Hanging has additional health risks due to the restriction of blood flow to the glans which include possible erectile dysfunction.
