Surgery Versus Exercise
“Size doesn’t matter.” How many times have you heard that before? It’s a great notion that physical looks don’t matter, but when it comes to looking for a partner, you typically want a woman who’s as beautiful and fit as possible. You’re looking for the ideal mate. Women feel the same way, and like it or not, a large penis is somewhat of a status symbol. Part of this is in our biology – a small penis can indicate a low level of testosterone, the greatest building block of masculine traits. It’s the same reason you’re naturally attracted to curvy hips and large breasts: they indicate fertility. Besides biological reasons, there’s something more attractive and macho about having a big dick. It also makes sex a lot more enjoyable for her. The problem is, how do you get there when you weren’t born with it?
Male enhancement treatments claim to help your penis grow larger in girth and length. A lot of these treatments, unfortunately, are full of you know what. Besides wild spam email claims, though, some male enhancement supplements or exercises do legitimately work. Some men, especially those with true micropenises (less than 3 inches erect) opt for surgical methods to lengthen and enlarge their penises. These surgeries, as you can imagine, can be expensive, very dangerous, and only somewhat successful. Why opt for surgery when nonsurgical procedures have been proven to work? There’s actual research that supports some of them.
For instance, urological researchers from the University of Torin in Italy studied male enhancement results. The two men, Marco Ordera and Paolo Gontero, found truly positive, measurable results when examining about 100 test subjects. One method is known as the traction method, in which a penis extender actually stretches you out daily. The men being studied had to wear the extender for four to six hours for four months – and they only grew about half an inch when erect. That’s a lot of time to put into a small change. Still, this is a positive result, and more time could result in more growth.
Another study found a way for men to experience short-term penis growth through the use of penoscrotal rings which are situated around the scrotum at the base of the penis. They made the erection larger in girth and length and allowed men with erectile dysfunction to maintain an erection for longer.
On the other hand, painful penis pumping was found to be ineffective, so throw yours out.
When it comes to physical exercise for penis growth, it’s about as effective as women doing chest exercises to increase the size of their bust. If this is bad news for you, don’t worry all that much. There is still much research to be done on what methods work, and some male enhancement supplements have had more positive results as well. The good news is, surgery tends to not work, which means the temptation to shovel money into a highly questionable and damaging procedure is just not worth giving into. There are better options out there that are much easier and safer, too!
