Satisfaction in the bedroom is one of the biggest causes of stress for men. Am I big enough? This is one of the most stressful, self-questions, with regards to bedroom activities. Of course, love and compatibility are the number one factors in enjoying sex, stressing and worrying about the size of your organ can have negative effects on your performance. Thanks to the advancement of technology and medicine, there are a number of different ways to temporarily or permanently acquire a larger penis. Some of these are as simple as applying a device to your genitals before sex, and some are full-on surgery (with a little bit of everything in between). Many of these treatments have also been known to help with other conditions like erectile dysfunction and Peyronies Disease also known as curvature of the penis. Using these tools can also help you feel more assured in yourself and that can also positively affect bedroom performance. Nothing is sexier than self-confidence.
Yes, you read that correctly. Penis stretching, also known as ‘jelqing’ has become more popular over the last couple of years. There are exercises that can increase the size of your penis. There have been mixed reports, some have said that it doesn’t work while others rave about their results, claiming to have grown over a half an inch in length. Here are a few for you to try (be careful!):
- Grip (not too tightly, but firm) your penis just below the head. Slowly and gently pull the shaft downward and hold for 30 seconds.
- Repeat the process in every direction (N, S, E, W) holding the stretch for 30 seconds each time.
A-Stretch Penis Stretch:
- Firmly hold your penis about an inch from the tip, and pull away from your body.
- Place your forearm directly beneath the shaft and carefully stretch your penis over your arm.
- Hold this pose for approximately 15-20 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
- Firmly pull your penis straight out in front of you. It should be taut but not painful.
- Hold for 3 seconds. Release.
- Let your penis relax for 3 seconds.
- Repeat the process. 12 reps of 3.
These are but a few penile exercises/stretches that you can try. Use this as a starting point and give it a shot. Pain does not mean improvement, so if it hurts, you are doing it too hard. Be careful, and gentle.
Shaving the Pubic Area
Call it an optical illusion, but it really does work. Trimming your pubic hair is not only super considerate of your partner, but it can also make you look much bigger, where it counts. One fair warning about going completely bald: It can make you look pre-pubescent. This is especially true for those that are smaller than average. As an added bonus, less hair can increase sensitivity.
If women can get breast enlargements, then why can’t men do the same for their little soldier? Get this. They can. It doesn’t come cheap though, with a total cost of around $15,000 (or more) and with at least $1000 down for a deposit this is not one of the cheaper fixes. Unless you have a legitimate medical condition, your insurance isn’t likely to cover any cosmetic surgery. However, if you are willing to pay the price, then this could be a valid option. It is a simple surgery, with a small incision made above the base of your penis in which a silicone implant is placed. This results in a longer, and wider, penis in the size of your choice – Large, X-Large, and XX-Large.
Before heading under the knife, there are a few things that you should keep in mind.
- It is a fairly simple surgery, but it is still a surgery, nonetheless. You will be going under general anesthetic which poses its own risks. You will need to arrange a ride to and from your appointment. You will get to go home the same day though!
- This surgery does not treat, nor cure erectile dysfunction.
- You must be circumcised. If you are not, you’ll need to get that done before proceeding with this surgery.
- You can expect penile swelling for up to a few weeks.
- No sexual activities with yourself or others for at least 6 months.
This is one of the more permanent solutions. The surgery itself only takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Those who’ve had this procedure done have reported that they gained anywhere from 1.5 to 2.5 inches, with the typical post-surgery size from 6.1 to 7.7 inches. Not too shabby. Worth 15 grand (or more)? That one, I’ll let you decide.
Fat transfer penis enlargement shots/injections involve two separate procedures. First, fat is liposuctioned from elsewhere on your body, such as from the thighs or abdomen. This fat is then filtered to isolate the fat cells and remove and discard the other material. The resulting ‘cleaned’ fat is then injected into the shaft of the penis. A growth of 2-2.5 inches is not uncommon, according to those that have had the injections. The penis has a softer, more pillowy feel than a non injected erection. Be sure to do your research when picking a doctor, because if the procedure is done incorrectly, it can cause unsightly lumpiness and scar tissue, which is difficult to reverse.
The power of the human mind is a wondrous thing. Believe it or not, there are quite a few men who swear that meditation, if done correctly, can enhance the size of their penis. If you look beyond the hoopla, it actually does make sense. The arteries that carry blood into the penis are surrounded by muscle tissue. Anxiety and stress can cause these muscles to contract, which, in turn, constricts the arteries, reducing blood flow and the less blood flow, the smaller the size. Meditation can help you relax deeply, helping your muscles relax, opening up the arteries, increasing blood flow and boosting your size.
Freeing your mind mixed with a little mental; programming:
In a quiet, comfortable area, breathing in and out deeply, clear your mind as completely as possible.
- Envision yourself as you are, followed by a realistic version of how you want to be (if you are average, realistically you are not going to grow an additional 6 inches; Be reasonable in your expectations).
- Complete focus and visualization can be done up to three times daily at intervals of 20-30 minutes each time.
I know, it seems too simple, but there are more than a few men that praise the technique, especially when used in conjunction with other methods like a pump, drugs, or medical procedures. It does not cost anything so why not give it a try? No harm, no foul.
A relatively simple procedure (invented by Dr. Charles Runels), the platelet-rich plasma injection, also known as the Priapus Shot or the PRP, is supposed to be able to increase the size of the penis by encouraging regrowth of the tissues. There have not been many studies on this, but, some claim that it does, indeed, work.
The non-surgical procedure:
- After numbing the penis, your blood is drawn.
- The blood is then centrifuged (concentrated).
- The platelet-rich plasma is injected into the head and the shaft of the penis.
Other than initial swelling, the recovery is typically painless. Typical results were seen after 1-2 treatments, with some claiming 10-20% increase in length and girth. The procedure is not permanent, and repeated treatments run the risk of causing scarring. On another note, it has been proven to help those with Peyronies Disease.
This handy little contraption is more helpful in adding length as opposed to girth but it apparently does its job well. In fact, over a 6 month period, using penis extender for 4 hours a day helped increase penis length by over a half an inch. Typically comprised of a plastic yoke that attaches to the head of the penis connected to two metal rods that are secured to the other end which sits at the base of your manhood. These two rods can be gradually lengthened, effectively stretching your penis over time.
These rings can come in a couple of different styles, but it is usually a rubber ring that is placed at the base of, and around the penis and the scrotum. By trapping the blood inside the shaft, it can help maintain an erection while also adding size and enhancing the feel of sex. Using this male sex toy has also been known to help prevent early ejaculation. As to the different types, the four main ones are adjustable rings, stretchy rings, vibrating rings, and solid ones. All being pretty self-explanatory, the vibrating one is also aimed at your partners’ pleasure.
- Be sure it is not too small. It should be tight, but not so tight that you go numb.
- Remove after 20 minutes of use. Prolonged use can cause permanent injury.
- If you notice a change in skin color, pain, or numbness, remove the ring immediately.
If used right, a ring can be a helpful, temporary tool to add some inches in the bedroom. Do some research and consult with your partner before deciding which one to get.
There are quite a few supplements that say they can add size to your package. Whether they work or not depends upon who you ask. Many of these pills are formulated with natural ingredients such as L-arginine and pomegranate which are supposed to significantly increase the nitric oxide production. Nitric oxide is known to raise blood flow and widen veins. So, in theory, yes it could work. Some men say that male enhancement supplements have improved their size and encouraged a more intense orgasm.
The stigma around the size of the male penis is blown way out of proportion (pun intended). The majority of women do not care about size. However, low self-esteem and stress can affect performance, so there is no harm in doing what makes you happy with yourself (if you are happy, then likely so is your partner). Do not make a snap judgment, especially if going the surgery or medical route. Do in-depth research before making a decision as it is one that could potentially affect you for the rest of your life.
