It seems every guy either wants to tell you how huge his penis is, or make it bigger than it is. And there are lots of methods out there that claim to be able to help. From drugs and supplements to devices and injections and even surgery, there’s lots of options. But do they actually work, and are they something you want or need to get involved in?
I found that passionate professionalism a bit unnerving to be honest, but then again, I’ve never had weekly strategy sessions about my dick with a stranger. Like, how do you respond to a statement like this before lunch: “Be very careful not to grip the glans during your exercises, Brian. If you need to use some talcum powder to enhance your grip, that would be fine. Remember to update your log.”
This Jelqing technique is powerful enough to increase the length and girth of the penis. This is because, when you milk your penis, you are actually forcing blood to fill spaces in the Corpara Cavernosa. These spaces will get larger when you jelq or milk your penis. Overtime penis will repair itself and these spaces will become stronger, longer and able to hold more blood.
Those who do not like the idea of taking a tablet every day can take liquid supplements. Liquid supplements contain the same ingredients found in the tablets. Instead of taking a single capsule every day, you simply drink a small amount of the liquid. Nutritional supplements come in several flavors, including a traditional flavor and a citrus flavor. You can drink the male enhancement liquid straight from the bottle, but some men prefer mixing the liquid supplement with water or another drink. The liquid products have the same benefits as the tablets and capsules.
Surgery offers the only permanent solution for enlargement of the penis. Through surgery, the penis can be visually enlarged, usually by just over an inch. The surgeon will cut the ligaments that hold the penis in its usual position, allowing the penis to descend. Weights, or stretching devices, are then used for a few months to affect a permanent increase in size. The procedure may result in scar tissue, the erection will point down, and the base of the penis will be hairy.
All consultations with Big Al are done remotely via Skype, which he conducts from his home office in Central Florida (out of earshot of his wife and young kids). His wife is aware of what he does and is totally cool with it, so long as he’s helping people. Which he appears to be doing from the looks of dozens of seemingly legit testimonials on PEGym, a sexual improvement site for men. Dear Ambellina, for example, says he made some “good and easy newbie gains” before hitting a wall, but Big Al kept him motivated to reach his desired length of 7.5 inches. “A huge part of penis enlargement is mental discipline,” Ambellina explains. “A coaching service like Big Al’s is invaluable because you’re much more likely to follow through when a passionate professional is monitoring your progress and pushing you to achieve.”
However, after more than a century of generally dubious and sometimes lunatic penis enlargement attempts, there's still not much you can do. Sure, there are lots and lots of supposed options out there -- penis pills, creams, brutal stretching exercises, horrific-looking devices, and penis surgery. Almost none of it works. The few approaches that can work often have modest benefits and serious side effects. How serious? In some cases, erectile dysfunction-serious.
The second most popular procedure for men - after pectoral implants - is the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). Who gets this procedure? We asked Dr Matthew Schulman, a surgeon in New York City, who performs many of them. "About 75 per cent of men requesting BBLs are gay and looking to increase the size and roundness of their buttocks," he says. "The other 25 per cent are straight men who complain that they have always had a flat butt." The results are permanent. "The advantage of this procedure is that it also includes liposuction as a way of harvesting donor fat. This allows for simultaneous contouring of the hip flanks and abdomen." Finally, a fat stomach that's good for something.
Penile girth surgery can involve a range of controversial techniques, such as injecting fat taken from other parts of the body. Whilst some studies claim an increase in girth of between 1.4 and 4cm, patients frequently report scarring, disfigurement, lumpiness, even infection. The body usually reabsorbs the injected fat, so the penis soon returns to its original size.
Warshak now resides in an Ohio federal prison (his mother Harriet was eventually given five years probation instead of jail time, and due to ill health was released from community service obligations). He forfeited homes, numerous bank accounts, several vehicles, annuities, college savings plans, a $10,000 membership to the La Costa Resort and Spa, two grand pianos, and even a Segway scooter as part of the judgment against him.
You should wear loose-fitting garments and avoid overexerting yourself. Do no heavy lifting for approximately one month, and refrain from sexual relations for a month to six weeks. Your doctor may instruct you in a course of stretching exercises or a system of weights to ensure optimal results. It may take three to six months before you see the complete results of this surgery.
According to the website of one such product, the safe application of traction encourages tissue cells to divide and multiply, a process called cytokinesis. Over time and with great effort this will lead to tissue growth. The FDA considers these low-risk devices (Class 1) and so provides only general controls intended to be followed by manufacturers.

“The majority of men who come in seeking penile enlargement are average,” says Lipshultz. “I just don’t think men have a realistic idea of what normal is. Hence they think that they are below normal when actually they’re average.” (For the record, the average erect penis measures 5.6 inches, according to research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.)
The secret to our penis enlargement success is born from over thirty years of testing and refining our techniques by founding physician Steven L. Morganstern, MD. Unlike competing approaches, Dr. Morganstern knew the solution wasn’t going to be found in an artificial penile implant or injectable as the primary bulking agent. He pioneered the use of penile implants for treating erectile dysfunction in the 1980’s and better understood the complications and shortcomings of such artificial implantations.
In a last brief conversation with Alistair, he asks if I would ever consider going under the knife. I tell him I’ve seen such a bewildering array of shapes and sizes over the past few weeks, I don’t even know what normal is any more. If it does the job nature intended, I say, that should be enough. For many men wanting an enlargement, it’s probably not so much about what’s in their pants as what, somewhere along the way, has got into their minds – and that can’t be fixed by a fat injection and a severed ligament.
