If you’ve spent any time wishing you had a bigger dick, welcome to the club! The funny thing is, most men who aren’t happy with the size of their penis think they’re alone. Or at least, in something of a minority. In reality, it’s the exact opposite. The overwhelming majority of men would do just about anything for a bigger penis. The question is – how to make your dick bigger and harder? Ideally in a way that’s fast, safe, and guarantees noticeable results?
Here’s a fact to chew on before we get started. Research has suggested that almost half of all men are dissatisfied with their size. But what’s interesting is how most men who think they have a small penis are perfectly normal in size. More importantly, the overwhelming majority of women are happy with their partner’s penis. A full 85% stating their partner’s member is just fine the way it is.
Still, it’s all largely inconsequential. you aren’t happy with the size of your penis, that’s really all that matters. If you think your dick is small, it can take a real toll on your confidence and. The good news is that while the vast majority of penis enlargement methods are basically BS, there is at least some penis stretching activities that can work.
But which of the approaches to making your dick bigger actually work? Which has been tried, tested, and approved as both effective and safe?
Let’s dig into the whole thing in a little more detail:
What is the Average Penis Size?
Before going any further, a few important facts and figures to consider:
- The average penis size when erect is 5.16 inches
- Around 90% of men have an average-sized penis
- 45% of men admit being dissatisfied with their penis size
- Penis anxiety is blamed on pop culture and pornography
- Most penis enlargement methods are ineffective and dangerous
Of course, whether your penis is a reasonable size from a statistical perspective is irrelevant. If you’re completely dissatisfied with the size of your penis, it can cripple your confidence. In which case, doing something about it is the only sensible option.
Reasons for Men Having a Smaller Penis
For the most part, there’s no specific reason why some men have smaller members than others. It’s just one of many unique characteristics we all have – no two penises are ever the same.
That said, there are some issues and conditions that can cause a degree of penis shrinkage. Or at least, make the penis look smaller than it actually is.
The three most common examples of which being as follows:
For obvious reasons, difficulties achieving or maintaining an erection can make a penis look smaller. If there’s not enough blood being channeled downstairs, the penis is unable to reach its maximum size. ED doesn’t necessarily cause a permanently small penis, but can understandably cause catastrophic confidence issues.
This is the scientific term for a condition that results in the curvature of the penis. Again, it’s a condition that doesn’t ‘shrink’ the penis in the conventional sense. However, Peyronie’s disease can make it difficult or impossible to achieve an erection or painful to do so. It’s also another condition that can cause crippling anxiety and low self-esteem.
As if prostate cancer treatment wasn’t bad enough in its own right, it can also shrink the penis. Shrinkage by up to an inch is a common side effect of a prostatectomy. On the plus side, it almost always recovers within a year following the surgery. Incredibly, it’s a common side-effect of this kind of surgery that patients are almost never warned about in advance.
What is a Micropenis?
This is less a condition, more something of a biological or developmental abnormality. For a newborn baby, the average penis size is between 1.1 and 1.6 inches. Average circumference being between 0.35 and 0.5 inches. If a baby’s penis falls outside these average ranges, it may indicate micropenis syndrome.
Currently, there’s no specific known cause for micropenis. It’s assumed to be linked with hormone disorders affecting the sexual organs, though it could also be genetic in nature. If a hormone deficiency is detected, hormone therapy may be recommended to treat the issue.
However, if the penis perfectly healthy (despite being undersized), no treatment or medication may be recommended.
Does Penis Size Matter?
The answer to this question depends entirely on who you ask.
Contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of women are happy with the size of their partner’s penis. In a recent survey, 85% of women said they were perfectly satisfied with their partner’s penis size. By contrast, just 14% stated outright that they would appreciate a larger penis.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t offer any comfort for the millions of men who aren’t happy with their members. If you lack confidence in your size and appearance, all the statistics in the world are inconsequential.
In which case, you could state that size doesn’t matter for most women. By contrast, ask the vast majority of men and the answer is yes – size matters big time. If the size of your penis is affecting your confidence and self-esteem, it’s a big deal to take seriously.
Common Methods to Increase Penis Size
Suppose you’ve decided to take action, kudos on your proactivity. However, now comes the time to assess which penis enlargement methods actually work. Not to mention, which are considered safe and worth putting your trust in.
Let’s take a look at some of the most common methods used to increase penis size and their effectiveness:
Penis Enlargement Surgery
Let’s start with that particular option. Penis enlargement surgery may seem like something of a no-brainer. In reality, it’s not actually recommended by the vast majority of experts. Even if the surgery does make your dick grow bigger to a degree, the side effects and potential complications can be severe, to say the least.
There’s a procedure available to increase the length of the penis, which involves cutting the suspensory ligament to enable the penis to be stretched. The result of which is indeed a longer penis, but at the expense of an erection that will sag lower for the rest of your life. A heavy price to pay for a little extra length.
If it’s additional girth you’re after, there’s a separate procedure available that involves layering sterile organic tissue under the skin of the penis to increase its width and circumference. The problem being that not only is the procedure exceptionally expensive and seriously painful, it also brings risks of complications like skin necrosis and infection into the mix. Again, a hefty price to pay for negligible girth gains.
Penile plastic surgery involves the physical restructuring of the ligaments and tissues of the penis. Typically averaging around $10,000 where available, it rarely adds more than 0.5 extra inches of extra length. Unsurprisingly, this rarely meets the expectations of patients. Particular when considering the potential side effects, such as numbness, weak/painful erections, and the potential for serious infections.
Getting a Penile Implant
As it stands, there’s only one surgeon in the world cup claims to offer effective penile implants. He’s based in LA and charges around $13,000 for the privilege. Which, where successful, can apparently add 1.5inches to penis length and 2.5inches more girth. All well and good, but leading male sexual health experts advise entirely against implants. Along with the risk of breakage and infection, the result of the surgery is a permanently semi-hard penis. Something that can become incredibly uncomfortable and inconvenient in everyday life.
Penis Enlargement Injections
Penile injections are becoming increasingly popular, though again bring all manner of risks and side effects into consideration. The four most common types of penis enlargement injections right now are as follows:
Dermal fillers can be used across various regions of the body to create a fuller and more defined look. The penis is no exception to the rule, potentially adding up to an extra inch in length. The problem is that not only are the results strictly temporary, but the risk of side-effects is high. Common examples of which include bruising, swelling, and lumps under the skin.
Also referred to as platelet-rich plasma injections, this is relatively new grounds in penis enlargement stakes. Research is at a remedial stage, though it suggests the natural stimulation of blood flow could prove beneficial. However, there’s not been nearly enough time to assess the potential risks of P-Shot procedures. Or, for that matter, whether or not they’re in any way effective long-term.
Another popular cosmetic procedure, which involves doses of the patient’s own fat, is injected into the penis. Negligible in its effectiveness and extremely risky, male health experts advise entirely against fat injections. It’s a procedure that’s already been blamed for at least one fatality, so it is best avoided at all costs.
Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Typically costing around $5,000 a time, hyaluronic acid injections are a surprisingly popular non-surgical option. Though in this instance, one that’s designed exclusively to add girth – not length. It’s also a relatively new and almost totally unregulated procedure that lacks intensive research. For this reason alone, urologists worldwide are discouraging men from considering hyaluronic acid injections.
Over the years, several different exercises have been touted as effective in increasing penis size. In terms of scientific evidence, however, there’s very little to go on. In addition, male health experts warn against getting carried away with any of the following exercises.
While these techniques have (apparently) worked for some, they can lead to permanent damage when performed incorrectly or excessively:
This is an exercise that involves manually forcing blood towards the tip of the penis. You grab your semi-erect penis between your thumb and forefinger at the bottom of the shaft, before moving slowly towards the top with constant pressure. Each ‘jelq’ should take 2 to 3 seconds to complete
With this exercise, you grab your penis just below the head and pull it outwards gently. You’re looking to achieve a firm stretch but shouldn’t feel any pain. At which point, you can move your penis in a circular motion for 30 seconds, maintaining the pressure. Use your right hand for the clockwise motion, then your left hand for the anti-clockwise rotations. Repeat the process three times in both directions, one after the other.
This is simply an exercise to improve the strength of your Pubococcygeus muscle. If you haven’t heard of it, this is the muscle used to stop the flow of urine while peeing. Once you’ve identified this muscle, you’ll know how to use it. At which point, you can contract and hold it in place for 5 seconds before releasing it. Repeat this for around 30 minutes each day over the course of several weeks. Kegel exercises apparently have the capacity to improve erection strength and orgasm intensity.
Similar to the rotating stretch, though without the rotation and performed using two hands. With one hand, you grip the penis just below the head. With the other, you grab the bottom of the shaft. You then stretch your penis by pulling your hands in opposite directions. Hold the stretch in place for 30 seconds before releasing, then repeat a few more times.
Last up, this is another stretching method that takes place in two directions. First, you grab your penis firmly just behind the head. You then stretch it downwards towards the ground (gently but firmly) and hold it in position for 30 seconds. After which, you stretch it upwards (towards the sky) for another 30 seconds. You can then repeat the same stretch to the left, and then they’re right before allowing time to relax.
Again, it’s worth noting that the effectiveness of any of these methods is questionable. If in doubt, consult with your doctor before performing any potentially risk exercises on your penis.
These things have been used for generations, and the jury is still out as to their effectiveness. Which says a lot, given how much ‘research’ has been carried out on them by millions of men over the years. But what we do know for sure is that when penis pumps do deliver positive results, they’re typically too minor to be considered of any real consequence.
For example, a study published a few years ago examined the effects of penis pumps on 37 different men with very different physiological compositions. It was determined that, on average, those who showed any signs of improvement experienced no more than 0.3cm growth over the course of six months. That’s 3mm in six months – hardly worth bothering with.
More importantly, the treatment was found to be 90% ineffective in total. Penis pumps are said to have at least some therapeutic value for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, but even in this department, their effectiveness and safety remains a subject of heavy debate.
Funnily enough, losing weight is actually one of the only tried, tested, and trusted ways of improving penis size naturally. There are two reasons for this, though it’s worth bearing in mind that neither of them will have you hung like a porn star a few weeks down the line!
First of all, losing weight (and a fair amount of it) creates what’s technically the illusion of a larger penis. By eliminating a bunch of fat reserves around your groin, your penis looks significantly bigger – despite having not actually grown in size. Nevertheless, there’s a decent chance you’ll take more pride in your appearance than you did before.
Secondly, losing weight is associated with improved health and wellbeing in general. Improved health means more efficient circulation and blood flow, which has the potential to contribute to penile health and strength. The long and short of it is that the healthier the blood flow to the penis, the more capable it is of doing its job, standing to attention and looking good.
Lose Belly Fat
Will losing weight give you a bigger penis? Not in the conventional sense, but shedding a few pounds around the waist can give the impression of a bigger penis.
This is because the more excess fat you’re carrying around your groin, the more of your penis is hidden. Precisely why obese individuals almost always appear to have smaller penises.
Of course, losing weight isn’t going to result in you suddenly developing the penis of a porn star. Nevertheless, it could help reveal more of your true size, which could make a big difference.
In any case, losing a few pounds if you’re carrying too much belly fat is never a bad idea.
Shaving The Pubes
Worth mentioning if purely for tongue-in-cheek value. The art of ‘manscaping’ is becoming more popular all the time. The simple fact of the matter is that when done right, shaving or trimming pubic hair can make your dick look bigger. Depending on your physiology and how unkempt you normally keep yourself, of course. But it can actually make a surprisingly big difference.
Though again, it’s more about drawing attention to your penis as it exists in its current form. Rather than actually doing anything for its size and shape. Take a picture before and after shaving. You’ll probably be surprised just how much bigger and more defined it looks.
Just be sure to go about the job as carefully and gently as possible. Cuts, nicks, and grazed skin in this particular area of the body are borderline unbearable.
As already touched upon, one of several approaches to surgical penis enlargement is fat injections. Liposuction is one approach to this kind of surgery, which involves transplanting fat from other parts of the body.
Technically speaking, injecting fat into the penis can make it look bigger. Unfortunately, it’s a potentially dangerous procedure that delivers temporary results at best.
Again, there’s already been at least one fatality attributed to fat injections for added penis size. Precisely why the vast majority of surgeons are unwilling to go near procedures like these.
Male Enhancement Pills
Speaking of which, the above is pretty much the size of it where male enhancement pills are concerned. Whether reaching for Viagra, VigRX Plus, or anything of a similar nature, you’re basically looking at a slight twist on the same standard methodology.
Male enhancement pills contain carefully balanced blends of natural (and sometimes synthetic) ingredients, which, when consumed in combination with one another, drive masses of blood downstairs. When this huge torrent of oxygen-rich blood hits the penis, it springs into life and does its thing. For a while at least, this can create the illusion of a bigger dick overall.
Unfortunately, the effect of male enhancement pills only lasts as long as the pills stick around in your system. Which is usually no more than a few hours, after which it’s back to business as usual. There isn’t a single pill on the market right now that will make your penis noticeably bigger.
If there was, each and every man on earth would have been taking it for years by now!
Unfortunate as it may be, there isn’t a lotion on earth that can give you a bigger dick. If there was, every man in the world would be using them. The problem is that the market is packed with thousands of products that claim quite the contrary. Ointments that can apparently add inches over the course of time. If you come across any lotion that makes such claims, avoid it like the plague. Manufacturers like these are playing you for a fool – they do not work because they cannot work period.
Last in our listings comes the only method to have received the backing of male sexual health experts. According to those in the know, the way to make your dick bigger and longer permanently is to reach for an approved penis extender.
One example of which being the FDA-proved and clinically tested SizeGenetics device. One which, over the course of six months, has been shown to improve penis size by an average of 8% to 30%. SizeGenetics features a unique ‘comfort system’ and can be adjusted in dozens of ways. Suitable for all penis shapes and sizes, getting the job done gently and comfortably in time.
Just for the record, these aren’t the kinds of devices that guarantee miraculous results overnight. Instead, it’s a case of science, letting it do its thing over time. Much better than forcing temporary results. The biggest plus point with SizeGenetics being that once you’ve completed the full course of treatment, the results are permanent.
When Will I See Results?
Here’s the overriding point – getting a bigger dick isn’t something you can rush. There are a couple of effective options available, but none are capable of overnight miracles.
Try your luck with the six most popular penis enhancement methods, and this is how long you can expect to wait to see results:
Penis Injections: The results of penis injections are more or less instantaneous, though it can be accompanied by bruising and swelling. Though in all instances, penis injections offer strictly temporary size increases. After this, you could be left with a lumpy, uneven, and misshapen penis for life.
Penis Pumps: Penis pumps can be great for contributing towards stronger and longer-lasting erections. However, there’s no evidence to suggest any penis pump actually contributes to penis size. A great male enhancement product in general, but incapable of adding length or girth to your penis.
Penis Enlargement Surgery: All swelling, bleeding and bruising following penis enlargement surgery typically subsides within a few weeks. At which point, you’ll see the positive results. Though, as touched upon, the average gain is no more than around 0.5-inches. Not nearly enough to justify the hefty price tag or the risk of permanent damage to the penis.
Penis Exercises: It’s impossible to say how long it takes for penis exercises to have the desired effect. For one thing, it depends on how they are performed, how frequently, and for how long. It also depends entirely on the physiology of the man in question and how their body responds. It could be weeks; it could be months – it might never happen at all.
Pills and Lotions: Speaking of which, ‘never’ is when you can expect to see results with pills and lotions. They cannot work and will not work – you’re wasting your time and money if you think they can. Physical changes to the penis by way of pills and lotions are scientifically impossible. Stay away from products that make bogus claims like these at all costs.
Penis Traction Devices: Last up, one of the only clinically proven penis enlargement methods is an approved penis traction system. One like SizeGenetics, which is an FDA-approved Grade 1 medical device. Systems like these take around six months to deliver optimum results, though they are scientifically proven as effective. They’re also 100% side-effect free and (in the case of SizeGenetics) ship with an extensive money-back guarantee. Well worth checking out, as even if it doesn’t have the desired effect, you’ll get a full refund.
The long and short of it (pun intended) with penis extension methods is relatively simple. There’s no secret shortcut or magic formula that can or will solve the problem. How to get a bigger dick quickly, safely, painlessly, and permanently takes time. If you’re serious about boosting the size of your penis, opt for a science-based approach i.e penis traction device is the one that is recommended by male sexual health experts.
In all instances, it’s worth consulting with your physician ahead of time, before getting started. Though the only option on this list that experts will recommend is the SizeGenetics penis extension device to make your dick bigger.
