procedures (sometimes euphemistically referred to as male enhancement
procedures in spam email and television advertisements) are techniques
alleged to make the human penis larger. These procedures range from
manual exercises to devices and medical interventions,with reports of
successes and failures around the world, and while some areknown to be
hoaxes, there is no popularly known scientific proof about their
effectiveness in general.

techniques used for penis lengthening (enhancement phalloplasty)and
penis widening (girth enhancement) have been in the urologic literature
formany years. In a study conducted at St. Peter's Andrology Centre and
Instituteof Urology, in London, it was determined that most patients
who underwent penis-lengthening surgery were unsatisfied with the
1.Penis enlargement (length) surgery
one-third to one-half of the penis is inside the body, and is
internally attached to the undersurface of the pubic bone. Penis
lengthening involves the release of the fundiform ligament and the
suspensory ligament thatattaches the two erectile bodies to the pubic
The suspensory ligament makes the penis
arch under the pubic bone. Release of thisligament allows the penis to
protrude on a straighter path, further outward togive a longer physical
appearance.With the penison stretch, the ligament is divided close to
the pubic bone until all midlineattachments 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 20-30 mm
After surgery, part ofthe postoperative
treatment includes stretching of the penis to prevent thesevered
suspensory ligament from healing shorter than it was previously.
Thearticle "Penile Suspensory Ligament Division for Penile
Augmentation:Indications and Results" discussed the subject. According
to Nim Christopher, a urologist at St. Peter's AndrologyCenter in
London, among men who have had the surgery,"the dissatisfaction rate
was in excess of 70 percent".
Real penile lengthening (i.e.,
lengthening of corporal bodies vs.ligamentolysis) is not a routine and
safe procedure because of high risk oflosing the ability to have an
erection. It can be done safely only in patientswith erectile
dysfunction or Mb Peyronies concomitantly with implantation ofpenile
The world's leading urologists specializing in the
field of penis enlargement surgery use only ligamentolysis, liposuction
of the pubic area, and skin redistribution. They state clearly
thatsurgeons can only expose the penis more outside the body with
especially visible results in obese patients and ones with different
deformities of penile skin where the penis is layered.
result penile surgery is strongly discouraged in all patients with
normal, functional penises. Such individuals should not engage in
penile enlargement surgery, in addition such a sugery is encouraged
only for men bornwith a congenital abnormality, who have suffered an
injury, or who have severe erectile dysfunction.
further method is to replace the two corpora cavernosa with inflatable
penile implants. This is performed primarily as a therapeutic surgery
for men suffering from complete impotence; an implanted pump in the
groin or scrotum can be manipulated by hand to fill these cylinders
from an implanted reservoir in order to achieve an erection. The
replacement cylinders are normally sized to be direct replacements for
the corpus cavernosa, but larger ones can be implanted.
advantage to this surgery is that an erection can be created whenever
desired, for as long as is desired and as firm as desired. However,
this surgical procedure can never be reversed.
scientific research supports the use of any nonsurgical method to
enlarge the penis, and no reputable medical society endorses
penis-enlargement surgery performed for purely cosmetic reasons.
than attempt to change the actual size of the penis, one may make it
appear bigger, by trimming the pubic hair or by losing weight.
enlargement pills" or ointments are commonly offered over the Internet.
Analyses performed by Flora Research of Californiaand by the University
of Maryland have uncovered harmful contaminants in a number of "penis
enlargement"pills. Contaminants found included mold, yeast,dangerous
E.coli bacteria,pesticides,and lead. Dr. Michael Donnenberg of the
University of Maryland has described herbal pills marketed as having
"heavy fecal contamination", possibly from animals grazing near the
plants harvested for herbal ingredients. There is no scientific
evidence that any of these preparations are effective,but there may be
a psychological placebo effect, in which the user thinks he now has a
larger penis, and thus gains confidence, when there has been no actual
change to his penis size.
3Kegel Exercise Devices
Kegel Male Exercise Trainer (also called The Stud Trainer) is a male
Kegel exercise device created by Florida entrepreneur and inventor, Al
Dana. It is a PC muscle exerciser that serves as an alternative to
pharmaceutical male enhancement products. These Kegel exercises,
patterned after the research of Arnold Kegel provide a natural
substitute to pills such as Viagra, Levitra and Cialis, which have been
found to have negative side effects and risks.Dana created this Kegel
muscle resistance training device after experiencing problems with
premature ejaculation, stress and urinary incontinence in hislate 40?s.
His study of Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, in which the phallus is
depicted as the Sun and was considered central to the whole and
flourishing man, was the impetus leading to the Dana'sinvention.
penis pump is a cylinder that is fitted over the penis, with amanual or
motorized pump to create suction. As the apparatus creates a vacuum
around the penis, blood is drawn into the penis, helping it to become
engorged. As vacuum increases, the difference between the inner
blood-pressure and the pump pressure increases as well; excessive
pressure causes vascular damage rather than a harder penis.
pumps, usually described in this context as vacuum pumps, have use
inconventional treatment of impotence. The pump itself is essentially
as described above, although often made to higher standards of quality
with a much higher price, and arrangements for distribution by
suppliers of medical equipment.
Flexible compression rings,
commonly called cock rings,can be added. Fitted on the open end of the
cylinder, then an erection iscreated by pumping. Then the rings are
pushed by hand onto the base of the erect penis before releasing the
vacuum. This restricts blood flow, enabling the erection to be held
even in the presence of problems of the vascular or nervous system
which would otherwise lead to immediate loss of erection. In the best
circumstances erections can be maintained for a considerable time, but
manufacturers' literature recommends that, for safety, rings should be
removed after no more than 30 minutes.
Pumping must be done very
carefully to avoid injury. Over-enthusiastic pumping can burst blood
vessels and form blisters. In some cases the testicles can be
unexpectedly pulled into the cylinder and cause severe pain and injury.
It is also believed that the rim of the cylinder can cut into the skin
and over time cause damage to the ligaments surrounding the penis.
Impatiently pumping without reading explanatory material can produce
too much suction (any pressure lowerthan 10 torr/1,333Pa) and cause
permanent injury. Attempts at using vacuum cleaner units for this
purpose have resulted in severe injury as the machine produces far too
However, scientists Graham Rutherford and Anne
Henke have also undertaken significant research in this area, being
funded by some of the major names insexual pleasure toys, such as Ann
Summers. Mild pumping has led to the strengthening of penis muscles and
also, for psychosomatic reasons, has led to decreased masturbatory
rates in later life.
In August 2006, Oklahomadistrict court judge
Donald Thompson was sentenced to four years in prison for exposing
himself and using a penis pumpwhile presiding over various court cases,
including several murder cases.
Jelqing is a method intended to enlarge the penis by exercising the
smooth muscle and other tissues in the penis, with the goal of
permanently increasing the maximum erect size of the penis. This
technique, also called"milking", involves wrapping the thumb and index
finger around the penis while semi-erect and repeatedly drawing them
away from one's body to force blood into the glans, thus encouraging
more vascularity in the corpus cavernosa and associated tissues.Whether
jelqing actually works or not is a subject of controversy.
that exist from this exercise are: burst blood vessels, sometimes
causing bleeding from the urethra (which can lead to infection and
other complications if not taken care of), and temporary or even
permanent erectile dysfunction.
There are many products (tools,
instructions, etc.) that one can buy;however, much of what they offer
(instructions) is available on forums and free websites.
is typically preceded by a warm-up with a hot compress on the genitals,
and concluded the same way. The reasoning behind the 'warm-up' mimics
the normal operation of the biological processes of the penis during
the four stages of arousal. The third stage is heat. At this stage the
smooth muscles of the 'glans' can easily expand to their present (not
future)greatest potential size. However with much more advanced
instruction one can over time, achieve a significant physical (not
merely psychosomatic) increase in size i.e. length and girth.
is a technique that uses a constricting device, such as a shoe string,
cable clamp, or a tight cock ring.The clamp is firmly tied, clamped, or
put, respectively, on the base of the erect penis while "edgeing"
(extended masturbation) with a firmly erect penis. Extreme caution
should be used to prevent permanent damage to the tissue. Use of a
metal cock ring is not advised because trapped blood engorging the
penis can make it impossible to remove.
Stretching consists of attaching a penis stretcher or"extender" device
to the penis for set periods of time. The device exerts a constant
traction on the penis, which, in theory, lengthens and widens the
penis. The traction supposedly causes the cells in the penis to"split"
and then reform and expand. In 2002 a study published in the
International Journal of Impotence Research concluded that penis
extender devices are effective at elongating the penis and furthermore
the increases in length correlate with the amount of time the device is
worn. A small pilot study released by Italian researchers in 2009
concluded that penis extender devices should be regarded as an
effective treatment option to enlongate the penis.
is perhaps the oldest self-applied method of penis enlargement, with
evidence suggesting it was practiced by certain African tribes as long
as 2,000 years ago. Weight hanging consists of attaching a device
(usually a rope or a strap) that grips the glans or just behind the
glans and allows aweight to be suspended for a specific amount of time.
Then a conscious effort is made to exercise the penis by raising the
weight in repetitions (lasting no more than 5 to 10 minutes at a time)
starting with the smallest and lightestweight 1/16 pound to the
heaviest usually 1/4 pound or more, to increase the strength and
stamina as well as elongation of the penis. Overtime the result is like
that achieved in pilates with the same positive results as one would
achieve in practicing pilates only with'Hanging' one also increases
stamina, strength, longevity and lean mass. As in pilates the
individual is also required to change his diet to that of a healthy one
which includes but is not limited to the intake of herbs like Green tea
and Ginger tea as well asthe intake of supplements like "One-a-Day for
Men" and Chromiumpicolinate (these are taken only as directed). But as
with any exercise resultsmay vary.
Also it is strongly advised
against if the individual is uncircumcised.You must be completely
healed after circumcisionbefore attempting 'Hanging'. Weight hanging,
however, can also carry serious risks, which include nerve damage,
chronic pain, scarring and impotence. The potential of these risk is
dramatically increased if the patient is not directly trained by a
qualified Certified Therapist. The idea behind weight hanging is to
stretch the Tunica Albuginea and other various tissues of the penis.
The general effect is to elongate the penis, although widening can also
Hanging carries additional health risks due to the
restriction of blood flow to the glans, including possible erectile
disfunction. Tribes with male practitioners of weight hanging, usually
results in the men being impotent,although urine is still able to pass
