Getting a bigger penis, the methods

how to get a bigger penis

We see our penis size as a symbol of our virility. The male brain has been programmed to be competitive which gives us the uncontrollable urge to compare sizes in the toilet or the dressing room in a very fast and invisible manner. Most forms of machismo and compensatory behaviour can be reduced to this source of male insecurity. We all have a spam folder brimmed with ways to increase our penis size, since we all want a bigger penis.

According to those spam emails there are plenty of ways to get a bigger penis, like creams, pills, exercises, apparel and operations. All claim to be more simple and easier than one another and we all secretly want to believe this deep down inside. BUT which method works and which method is a waste of time and money? More importantly, when is a penis enlargement necessary? 

An undersized penis: a matter of perception

One thing all artists learn at the art school is that from a top perspective objects seem smaller than from any other view point. Unfortunately men just have that top view to judge the length of their penis. So if we compare ours to other gentlemen’s, we start from a distorted frame of reference, which makes your penis seems smaller than it actually is.

We only see other people’s penises in limp condition when we’re in urinals, dressing rooms or saunas, and every man knows in the back of his head that a size of a limp penis is not really representative of the erect form’s size.

So the point of reference should be an erect penis, but a heterosexual man only sees an erect penis in porn movies, where the horse-size seems to be the norm.

Size and the importance we attach to it are also culturally related. In ancient Greece today’s porn stars would belong in a circus. Ancient Greeks laughed about large penises; they preferred a smaller sized one and were proud of it. It also depends on where on earth you live. In Asia a Western European man would feel quite good, whereas in Africa he would not be so chuffed.

Penis size is relative, so the best way to compare is to do it by measuring large numbers of them, in the name of science and then measuring yourself against the average.

The average penis size

how to get a bigger penis and what is the average penis sizeEvery man wants to know how his penis size relates to the average and luckily there is an abundance of research available.

The definition that is used for an undersized or oversized penis is the following:  An undersized penis is too small for penetration or stimulation of a woman; an oversized penis is too big, making intercourse too painful.

The large majority of men have average sizes, between 11 and 22 cm. This is medically normal. Smaller than 11cm is considered too small; smaller than 7cm is called a micropenis.

The average sizes are quite wide. Some research suggests it is 13.5cm, while others suggest 15.5 cm. It also depends on which population you belong to. To give a few examples, the average for Asian men is 9.6 cm, for Africans it is 18 cm and for Northern- Europeans the average is circa 14.5 cm.

These averages don’t mean much; first of all because of the many different ways of researching and secondly because the real issue is the perception. According to research into this matter, men think all too soon that their penis is too small. Urologists also indicate that a majority of man claiming their penis is too small actually have a normal sized one.

This doesn’t take away from the fact that you can feel very insecure about this. Lengthening your penis by a couple of centimetres would already put your mind at ease. It is also very normal to worry about this because the length of your penis is somehow connected to your self-esteem. But because of all the penis enlargement methods you may become confused. It is a grey area and a lot of people want to keep it that way because your ignorance is a lucrative business for them.

Pills for a bigger penis

The first thing everyone immediately thinks of is pills to get a bigger penis. Most men’s spam box is filled with offers for them and everyone will probably have considered opening one of those mails at least once. The fact that you don’t do it is a healthy one, not healthy for your computer but also because you never know what’s inside those pills you would order online.

They are sold as food supplements and not as medication, which means that there is no legal requirement to test these pills for the effect they have on humans.

The best case scenario is that they are vitamins that you can equally buy in the super market around the corner; a worse scenario is that they are filled with rubbish.

Still, they are appealing and it seems they are being sold, because if no-one would buy them, you wouldn’t be getting these emails. They are using your insecurities; the images of exotic plant extracts from the Colombian rain forest make it seem like they might just do the job.

All this may sound good, but have you ever heard of a food that makes any body part grow? It’s a fairy tale. The best outcome would be that it improves your circulation (which means a better and healthier erection), but you can find these ingredients in other food supplements at a fraction of the price.  More movement is good for the circulation too, and it is free.

A bigger penis by hypnosis

Your body cells are always renewing, the cells of your penis as well. Cell memory which is part of your sub consciousness is the reason why cells keep having the same form. So by manipulating your sub consciousness with hypnosis, you can change the cell-renewal and even increase the size of the cells, which would change the size of your penis.

This is the theory of hypnotic penis enlargement and it is of course total nonsense and biologically impossible. It is one of those miracle methods from a magic trick box that you may come across. This is the way such sales talk works:  The basic message is a semi scientific message, which can be used to come to very odd conclusions.  These messages always contain a bit of truth to make it more credible. Your body cells do always renew themselves, but the cell memory is not stored in your sub consciousness. The cells are stem cells and proteins that can’t be changed by hypnosis. Not everyone is aware of the scientific truth of course and it can take a long time to research these claims. Just remember that if it did work, it would have made headlines already.

Penis enlargement operation

Maybe you have considered this. Medical science can achieve a lot these days, so an operation to enlarge your penis size should be easy, right? Compared to let’s say a heart transplant, it definitely is. The surgical procedure lasts for just a few hours, but there are a lot of issues with this form of treatment.

Your GP, plastic surgeon or urologist will never advise this procedure to you. Why not? Because the risks outweigh the advantages. The connection between the penis and the pubis will (partly) be cut through and rearranged. This doesn’t technically get you a bigger penis, but it can add some centimetres. It only creates extra length but no extra thickness.

The risks are quite big.  One of the risks is life-long impotence because of infections and nerve damage, just for a few extra centimetres. Even without taking these risks into account and considering the operation were successful, you can’t have sex for three months following the operation. Your penis will also be a lot more fragile and will have a tendency to bend when erect; because that connection to the pubis isn’t there anymore. The connection may also just regrow, making the 6000€ you spent and the 3 months of no sex really worthless.

This kind of intervention is only meant for those men who really need it and who have nothing to lose, like men with a micro penis, a malformation or a serious erectile dysfunction ( inability to get an erection due to nerve damage), not for men who are not happy with their 12 cm dick.

A bigger penis by injections

Over the past two years there has been a real hype among Vietnamese men to inject their penis with fluid silicone or Botox. The theory behind this was that it would widen the erectile tissue, making the penis larger when limp or erect. This procedure was mostly carried out by the men themselves and very rarely by doctors.

The consequences were clear: strange swellings because of the wrong distribution of the product, infections, nerve damage and even tumours. Necrosis (dying off  or turning black of the tissue) is a much occurring consequence as well. The big problem is that it can take up to six months for these complications to occur. The hype was well on its way and wide spread before the start of the complications. A lot of men have been harmed with lasting damage and will never be able to have a healthy erection again. Those Vietnamese men whose penis has been saved have to cope with a penis that is 20% shorter than before the procedure.  A penis enlargement is not worth this risk.

Penis enlargement using a penis pump

The theory behind a penis pump is very simple: By creating a does a penispump help you get a bigger penisvacuum around your penis, you draw blood into it. This causes an erection and the cell walls and erectile tissue will also enlarge. By doing this regularly your penis should grow longer and wider, thus creating a bigger penis.

But the penis pump only creates an erection, nothing more. It works wonders for men suffering from erection problems or erectile dysfunction, but not for men who want a bigger penis.

The penis consists of three erectile tissues: the corpora cavernosa (on top) and the corpus spongiosum (at the bottom and around the ureter). You can imagine these as sponges. If you add blood, they will hold on to it and grow, but, just like a normal sponge they have a point of saturation, adding fluids after that will not make the sponge grow any more.

The amount of blood that can be absorbed in the penis is determined by the cell wall surrounding the erectile tissue (the sponges). The elasticity of the cell wall determines the length and thickness of your penis. A penis pump will only draw more blood to the penis, it doesn’t extend the elasticity of the cell wall. So you can pump as much as you want, it won’t help you getting a bigger penis. Better mind the amount of time you spend pumping as well, because the last thing you want is to damage your Johnson.

Clamping for penis enlargement

As explained above, a penis pump is not effective because the blood is drained immediately before the cell walls can expand. By clamping off the veins you can prevent this natural blood flow. This is the principle behind clamping. You prevent the draining of blood and ensure that extra blood will stay in your penis by using a rope or a penis ring.

After that you start with edging.  Edging is masturbating for a long time while constantly postponing your orgasm, just as you’re on the edge of cumming. This is an often used method to prevent premature ejaculation, but in this case the aim is to expand the tissues in order to lengthen and thicken your penis.

It is a simple procedure and it seems logical, but it is also dangerous.  Your erection stays because the blood can’t drain away. This is the reason why men suffering from erection problems use a penis ring. But once you get too much blood in the penis and this blood can’t drain because of that ring, you have a big problem, especially when you use a metal ring. By the blood surplus you will slowly damage the tissue and the clamping can kill off some cells. The worst scenario is that you end up in the hospital to be saved with a rotation tool…

Lengthening your penis using weights

Using weights to enlarge the penis is a method that is over 2000 years old. The Egyptian pharaohs did it and this method is still being used in some African tribes today. By hanging weights on your penis you extend it without the dangers of clamping.

But this doesn’t mean this method is safe. You can still damage the blood vessels and/or the erectile tissue. A worse blood circulation will mean at best a less strong erection and at worst the dying off of tissue. Leaving the risks at the side, it will increase the penis length, but often at cost of the thickness. You will get a longer but thinner penis. 

Lengthening your penis the natural way

Is there a safe way that doesn’t need strange apparel or interventions and is also safe? Yes there are, although they are just relatively safe. Your penis is a very sensitive organ, so whatever you try, you also need to be very cautious. The best way is always the natural way to avoid any accidents or damage.

The simplest method that can deliver one extra centimetre is an erection which is as natural as possible. This means to let your penis grow stiff without or with a little as possible touch or stimulation. The only stimulation you should use is your fantasy. By touch you make blood drain back to your body. Without touch or stimulation you will get a bigger and fuller erection, because the erectile tissue will be filled to the maximum.

This will give you some gain. For the longer term, there is a method called jelqing. This is said to be an Arabic method, (meaning to milk), but the true origin is not clear. It could also just be one of those marketing ploys to make this method sound exotic. But it is a safe method which is worth your while, it needs patience and perseverance to get a bigger penis.

The method consists of daily exercises and some men see results after a month, other need 6 months to a year.

Hold your thumb and index close around the shaft of your penis. The penis has to be limp or half-limp (an erect penis can cause damage). Make a milking gesture to the top of your penis and repeat this a few times.

There has been little scientific research into natural penis enlargement. Some research has started to be done slowly over the last few years, so there is no real proof that this method really works. This doesn’t mean it does not work, there are many for a on the internet where men claim to have benefitted with this method.

Do you really need a bigger penis?

The majority of men, who think their penis is too small, actually have an average size.  As said before, this is because of the perspective. It is possible to improve this perspective. Getting rid of a beer belly will help, and what about pubic hair? Cutting it short will improve the sight as well, to create the look of a bigger penis without any exercise.

And apart from all that, men always worry about the length of their penis, not about the thickness, nearly all research indicates that women prefer a thicker penis (so not a bigger penis), and they only say that when asked about which they prefer, because in the end women don’t care about length or thickness. The exterior part of the vagina is a lot more sensitive, so oral sex is a much better tool to make a woman orgasm. More cunnilingus, less penetration is the real message.

It’s not how big your penis is, it’s what you do with it that matters. That is partly true, because women fall for self-confidence. But if you still feel insecure about the length of your penis, knowing this won’t help at all. A few centimetres would give your self- confidence a boost, and self -confidence would ensure better sex.
