Let me start by saying I’m not stifling a giggle while working on this article. I’m not some elementary kid who laughs at anything that’s related to penis sizes. I repeat, I AM NOT GIGGLING. With that said, let’s move on to the topic at hand.
It has been brought to our attention—meaning a very inquisitive guy wrote a comment on our Facebook page—that guys are concerned about getting their penis bigger (thank you for the topic suggestion, by the way, we’re always happy to hear from you). It’s a totally understandable concern. When it comes to penis sizes, you either go big or go home. LOL.
A small dick isn’t the end of the world. A big dick isn’t everything. Don’t let those countless penis size augmentation advertisements and porn stars with giant dicks you see all over the internet tell you otherwise. And besides, you may be surprised to know that you may actually have an average-sized penis. Research already revealed that an average erect penis measures around 5-6.5 inches in length with 4-5 inches girth. Now, if you’re still convinced that yours is in the short side, don’t worry. There’s still hope. Read this article to find out how you can have fun in bed with your girlfriend if you have a small schlong.
But if you’re the kind of guy who likes to take a more proactive approach, you’ve probably thought about finding ways on how you can get a bigger penis. We’re here to make things easier for you. We’ve done all the research to give you the real deal on what actually works, what needs more research, and what options are just flat out scams.
Here are some common penis augmentation tips:
Right off the bat, do pills and lotions actually work?
We’ve seen those pills and lotions advertisements on our web browsers that claim they can give you a longer and bigger boner. They’re like magical solutions to your small penis problems. Remember what your mama always said, “If something is too good to be true, then it’s most likely not true”. This applies to those pills and lotions too. They don’t have any magic in them at all, but what they do have are herbs, minerals, and vitamins. There’s no evidence proving that they work, and what’s bad news is that some of them may even be harmful to your health.
And then there’s jelqing
If you’ve never heard what jelqing is all about, allow us to give you a crash course on jelqing 101. Jelqing, in a nutshell, pretty much involves a penis massage that pushes blood from the base of the penis down to the tip. It’s what you call a work out for your dick. Throughout the years, this technique has been getting a lot of attention because of the internet. It has been dubbed as the “easy way” to get a bigger penis. While there’s been a lot of anecdotal reports proving that jelqing worked for them, there’s really no research to back this claim.
Here’s how it’s supposed to work. By regularly pulling and stretching, you make the tissues in your penis fill up with blood, resulting in a permanent swelling. It sounds convincing if you put it that way. But your penis anatomy has something else to say. Your penis is an organ and not a muscle, so it’s not something that you can strengthen through exercise. Jelqing may actually do you more harm than good since there’s a risk of penile damage which can lead to irritation, tears and scar formation on your peepee.
Okay, but what about penis pumps?
Penis pumps are used by men who have erectile dysfunction but they’re also being used in the bedroom for longer and stronger erections. It creates a vacuum that pulls and tugs the tissues on your penis, drawing the blood flow and making your penis larger and thicker. It does work, and you get the illusion of a bigger penis. The result, however, is only temporary. Word of advice, penis pumps are relatively safe to use but don’t use penis pumps longer than the recommended time. It may end up damaging the elastic tissues of your penis.
Any truth on penile extenders and traction devices?
Yes, and no. Penile extenders and traction devices are built to elongate the penis by exerting traction on it. A study concluded that there was indeed a small increase in both flaccid and penile length after using a penile extender. Another study also revealed that there was a significant increase in length after using penile extenders in six months. The only catch is that there were only a few participants involved in the study. More research needs to be done before the results become conclusive. It does seem very promising.
Should you try injections?
You may have heard about this. There are different injections that are believed to give your penis a boost in size. Among the popular ones are the hyaluronic acid injections and Priapus shot. Hyaluronic acid injections work by injecting the penis with stabilized, hyaluronic acid-based non-animal gel. The Priapus shot, on one hand, is a procedure that involves drawing blood from the arm, then separating the platelets using a centrifuge. The platelets are led to think the body has been injured. This prompts them to release growth factors. It’s then injected into the penis with a needle. Both of these procedures may seem promising but more research is still needed to prove its effective long-term results.
What’s the real deal with a surgical intervention?
Before you decide on getting a male genital corrective surgery, you may want to think about it some more. It is a recommended treatment for micropenis. But there is not enough evidence to support its long-term effectiveness. Medical organizations are not endorsing penile elongation surgery for cosmetic reasons.
Are there any other options?
Yeah, turns out you have other routes you can take that aren’t too abrasive. The previous methods may be popular. But they are not yet proven. While the next options may not make your penis bigger, they do give your penis the appearance of a bigger size.
Lose the extra weight
For all my chubby men out there, if you’re looking to have a bigger penis, you may need to drop the extra weight. No, we’re not trying to trick you. Medical practitioners have something to say about it. They’re recommending you lose weight to make your penis look bigger. It’s not gonna make your penis bigger per se. But when you lose weight, you lessen the pad of fat surrounding your pubic bone. This helps you expose more of your penis and make it appear bigger.
Trim your pubes
If you’re not fond of trimming your pubes, consider doing it now. Sometimes, it’s all about aesthetics. Cutting the grass on your front lawn may not only make oral sex a lot easier and more hygienic. It can also give you the appearance of a bigger penis. And besides, trimming the hair around the base of your penis is less of a hassle than actually getting a painful surgical correction or sketchy injections.
Make sure your erection is reaching its maximum potential
Sometimes, men are not reaching their maximum boners because of unhealthy lifestyles. Smoking, lack of exercise, and drinking alcohol excessively are just some of the habits you can blame for that. It can cause an increase in cholesterol level in your body, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other cardiovascular diseases. All of which disrupts the blood flow to your penis. So if you want to really get into your penis enlargement journey, start by getting a healthy lifestyle.
The bottom line here…
Big dicks may be associated with virility and masculinity. But we are here to tell you that a big dong isn’t everything about being a man. As much as we want to tell you there’s a single and proven solution to make your penis bigger, we can’t lie. At the end of the day, your penis is only going to grow at a size that you’re capable of reaching. There may be a few changes you can do to give it an illusion of a bigger size. But that’s just it. It’s just an illusion. So instead of worrying about something that you can’t change, why not focus on the things that you can improve on? Try improving your performance in bed.
