Penis Enlargement Article
Everything You Need To Know About Penis Enlargement - My aim for this article is to be as informative as possible about the very prominent issue of penis size. I will be touching upon typical and average penis sizes, issues on penis size and whether it matters, natural penis enlargement techniques, tips and problems one may encounter, other methods of penis enlargement, and my own experiences thus far with penis enlargement.
I will begin with the issue of average penis size. It is almost certain that all men will at some point in their lives question if they are adequate or not. Sex experts continually emphasise that as far as womens list of physical wants goes, penis size is not really all that important at all. However despite this it is fair to see that most men perceive the size of their tool to be very important, and a huge factor in their masculinity and ability to perform sexually. It is also fair to say that if a man feels his penis size is not adequate, he will suffer from depression and lack of confidence, which I personally have been through, and sometimes still do. This is not necessarily because they actually do have a small penis, it may just be that they believe that they do, when in fact they are well within the ranges deemed to be average.
In my opinion, the only way to get some sort of idea of the average penis size is to take a reasonable sample of men and independently measure their erect penis dimensions. Many surveys have been conducted by mens magazines and other organisations, which rely on the participants to measure their own penises and send in the results. Obviously this data is not reliable as men will tend to exaggerate the size of their penises, or measure incorrectly, leading to great inaccuracies in the data. 2 of these surveys I wish to focus on are those of Alfred C Kinsey and Durex Condoms.
The Kinsey study was conducted in 1948 using data collected from 3500 college males. Analysis of the Kinsey data suggests that the average erect length of the 3500 subjects was 6.21 inches and average erect circumference (girth) measured 4.85 inches. The erect length was measured from the tip of the penis to the pubic area, and girth was measure around the middle of the erect penis. While this information may seem valuable, it is very important to note that the subjects measured themselves, by holding a postcard against their penises, marking where the tip of the penis ended, and posting the postcard. Because of this the information may not be entirely accurate as it is fair to assume that some of the men will have exaggerated their size. In addition, only white males were used for the study.
The Durex survey was conducted entirely on the Internet on an anonymous basis. Already, just from this information one can assume that the information is not going to be entirely accurate. Gathering data from around 3000 men from 27 different countries, the survey concluded that average erect length is 6.4 inches, and average erect girth at the thickest point of the penis is 5.1 inches.
So both these surveys that rely on men measuring themselves have returned average values of over 6 inches for length. However if we look at the more accurate surveys where the subjects are independently measured, the results are more modest. The main survey I wish to discuss is that by Lifestyles Condoms, conducted in 2001 using 300 subjects, mostly US college students. They were measured independently by qualified medical staff and as before, measured from the tip of the penis to the pubic area. The results showed that average erect length was 5.877 inches and average erect girth was 4.972 inches. More interestingly, 54% of the men measured between 5.5 inches and 6.3 inches in erect length and 53% measured between 4.725 inches and 5.118 inches in girth. In addition, a Brazilian urologist who recently accurately measured 150 subjects reported that average erect length was 5.7 inches and average girth 4.7 inches.
These results show that men measuring themselves do indeed exaggerate their size, and to conclude, considering all of the information, it is reasonable to suggest that the average erect penis measures between 5.5 and 6.5 inches in length and between 4.5 and 5.5 inches in girth. It would appear that well over 50% of men in any given population fall within these figures. The percentages of men reporting larger size diminish proportionally to the size, for example, the Kinsey data details that 17% of the 3500 men studied reported an erect length or 7 inches or above, while only 1.8% of men reported an erect length of 8 inches or over. However using natural penis enlargement techniques from Penis Health, these sizes can easily be attainable by anyone, including you!
Thats all on the issue of average penis size, I will now discuss probably the most important issues, does size matter? This is an issue, which is very debatable. Some people will say that it does, and give good reasons to support this, while others will say it doesnt, also with good reasons to back this up.
To start, the main sensitive area of the vagina is in the first 3 inches. The fabled G-spot is approximately one inch into the vagina on the front wall. It is NOT as some people believe deep inside the vagina (6 inches + inside). This information would suggest that a man with even a 3 or 4 inch penis can satisfy a woman sexually. However it is not quite this simple. The nervous system of the vagina is stimulated by the motion of the penis moving back and forth against the vaginal nerves, thus causing friction and the associated stimulation and pleasure. Therefore, if you have a longer penis, each stroke will last longer and cause more stimulation of the vaginal nerves. One would argue that in order to compensate for this, a man with a shorter penis can stimulate the woman to the same degree as someone with a larger penis by simply thrusting quicker. For example if a man with an 8 inch penis thrusted once every 2 seconds, a man with a 4 inch penis could provoke the same level of pleasure by doubling the speed, thrusting once every second. However this is a very basic way of looking at things and its not so simple in reality.
My research and experience indicates that it is girth, which is the main factor to a woman. In fact, an extra long penis is even questionably desirable since it may penetrate too deeply and pain the delicate cervix. When questioned, many women say they would prefer a short and fat penis to a long pencil penis. However it is sufficient to say that in any given situation a woman will prefer a longer and thicker penis to a smaller one. While a short penis can stimulate a woman, a larger penis, while not necessarily better, is always going to be more desirable to a woman, and they certainly seem to find larger penises more visually stimulating. However in a relationship penis size is far from the most important factor and many men take their size way too seriously, as I have already stated, smaller penises can still produce a lot of pleasure from a woman. In my opinion, penis size matters more the men than women! And if you are not happy with your penis size, you can do something about it using penis enlargement!
Before I go into natural penis enlargement, I would like to quickly touch upon the other methods available that claim to enlarge your penis. The four main other methods commonly discussed are penis pumps, penis surgery, weighting and stretching devices, and penis pills.
Penis pumps consist of a plastic cylinder, into which the erect penis is placed. At the base of the cylinder there is an airtight seal. Through the use or either an electric or hand pump, the air within the cylinder is then extracted and the resulting vacuum forces increased volumes of blood to be drawn into the penis. This is a similar theory to that of the jelq in natural penis enlargement, forcing more blood into the penis. This increased volume of blood in turn causes the erect penis to temporarily swell in size. The results achieved in erection size are often similar to those experienced during extreme sexual arousal, when the penis is engorged with blood to its full capacity. Although pumps certainly engorge the penis to capacity and result in immediate gains, the effects as mentioned above are in the main only temporary and are lost within a few hours. Penis pumps cannot increase the natural capacity of the erectile chambers, something that is necessary for permanent gains. In addition there can be some negative side effects such as blisters, reduction in sensitivity and problems getting stable, hard erections. More seriously, burst blood vessels can cause bruising or at worst haemorrhages. I certainly would not recommend using pumps if you are serious about achieving permanent gains.
Penis surgery is something I would very strongly recommend against. The 2 main methods of penis surgery aim to increase length and girth respectively. The first technique involves cutting the suspensory ligaments supporting the penis, causing it to droop lower and appear larger. The penis is then stretched as the ligaments heal in order to prevent them from healing shorted than before. Without continuous stretching the gains may be lost. While this can give good increases in flaccid length, it is erect length that matters, and this technique typically only increases erect length by 0.2 0.3 inches, if at all. In addition, side effects can include a significant reduction in the angle of erection as well as increased susceptibility to injury
The method of increasing girth involves removing tissue and fat from the buttocks and inserting them into the penile shaft. This can increase flaccid girth by up to an inch, and erect girth by up to 0.7 inches. However there can also be complications and side effects with this method, including drastic curving of the penis and asymmetry.
With both methods, there are many risks, as in any operation, of things going wrong. It is suggested that penis surgery is only considered for those with documented medical issues, and not for people who just want a bigger penis. Finally, penis surgery will set you back between 3000 and 10000 dollars, whereas you could just join a program like penis health for 50 dollars.
Stretching and weighting devices rely upon the principle of tensile force and the bodys natural ability to adapt under these influences. It has been proven that weighting can permanently increase penis size. However it takes a long time and a lot of use of the devices. One particular device, the JES Extender has been proves to increase the penis 1.25 inches over an 18 week period. However in order for this to happen, the device must be used for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Clearly no normal man would have this amount of time on his hands to use the device. In addition, the device will only increase length and will not do anything for girth, and may even decrease it due to it being spread out more along the penis. Another device, the Penistretcher has been shown to increase girth by just under 0.5 inches with sustained use over 6 months.
Home-made methods of stretching the penis are highly advised against. Long term reduction in blood circulation to the glans of the penis, for example by tying weights to the end of the penile shaft, can lead to infection and the possibility of gangrene. Ultimately, this can end in amputation. Clearly, this would be far from a positive result when such efforts had been made to enlarge the penis. Finally, while cheaper than surgery, these devices will set you back between 500 and 1000 dollars, and for the minimal results and maximum effort required, I would highly recommend a natural program that would cost a fraction of the price and require a fraction of the effort.
Finally, we have penis pills. These claim to do a number of things, most notably improve blood circulation and blood flow to the penis, increase sex drive, and enhance energy levels. Most of the ingredients are herbal based, including recognised herbal remedies for impotence and improved blood circulation, which have minimal side effects, at worst stomach aches and/or headaches. It is highly likely that these pills will increase blood flow to the penis, however whether or not this will cause permanent gains is yet to be proved. Considering the recognised benefits of the ingredients, it is fair to say that the pills will improve general penile fitness and health. However I do not believe that penis pills on their own will give permanent gains. BUT! Penis pills do have a place in penis enlargement. When coupled with a good penis enlargement exercise program, the pills can cause gains to come more quickly and in larger quantities. They can halve the time it will take you to get gains! They are also relatively inexpensive compared to other methods and should definitely be considered if you are using natural penis enlargement exercises.
WARNING Yohimbe. Many penis pills contain an ingredient called Yohimbe, which is known to improve blood circulation and dilate blood vessels, which is a good thing. HOWEVER. Unfortunately, the consumption of Yohimbe can result in other far less desirable side effects. These can include dizziness, nausea, insomnia, anxiety, increased blood pressure and rapid heart beat. Doses in excess of 40mg a day can result in more severe side-effects, including loss of muscle function, vertigo and even hallucinations. Yohimbe is also known to react adversely with certain foods containing high levels of Tyramine. Such foods include cheese, red wine and liver. When combined this may cause severely high blood pressure. Therefore I would suggest taking pills that do not have Yohimbe. Ginkgo Bilboa will cause the same positive effects as Yohimbe without the negatives.
Considering all this, I would recommend ProSolution Pills, as they have all of the good ingredients that will help you enlarge your penis, and do not contain Yohimbe. Taking ProSolution pills in combination with a good exercise program such as Penis Health will certainly help you to rapidly enlarge your penis!
Now I will talk about my programs and experiences regarding natural penis enlargement. I signed up on the 20th of December and for 2 weeks used the following program:
8 mins long schlong
8 mins jelq
5 mins power stretch
This was on a 2 on 1 off basis. After 2 weeks I moved onto this routine:
10 mins long schlong
10 mins jelq
6 mins power stretch
After these 4 weeks I had noticed a larger flaccid penis that looks more healthy and hangs lower. However I had no erect gains. I then sent off for my free consultation and the routine I got was as follows:
5 mins long schlong
5 mins jelq
5 mins pressured long schlong
6 mins jelq and hold
4 mins PC weighted
I have now been using this program for 2-3 weeks, and have also inserted some downward stretching so my routine is now as follows:
5 mins long schlong
2 mins downward stretch
5 mins jelq
5 mins pressured long schlong
2 mins downwad stretch
6 mins jelq and hold
4 mins PC weighted
Now I will go into detail about how I carry out my routines. Firstly, I always do my routines in the bath. To warm up I just let me penis relax in the warm water and massage it with a cloth, I do this for around 5 minutes. For my exercises, I go on a reps basis rather than a time basis. This is because there is a lot of pausing and switching hands etc involved, so if I was to strictly do 5 minutes of long schlong, I would probably end up actually doing only 3 minutes.
Therefore for my long schlong, I do 4 reps of 10 seconds in the directions up, right, and left, so each of these sessions is 2 minutes. For my current routine, I do 2 of these sessions, making 4 minutes, then I do 2 30 second long schlong helis, bringing it to 5 minutes. The actual time taken to do this will be more like 8 minutes but I know I have got 5 minutes of good stretching time.
For my downward stretching I do reps of 30 seconds, 2 with each hand. I spend about 8 minutes on the jelq to compensate for having to manually masturbate a few times when I lose my partial erection. I jelq slow and hard from the base to the head, and I prefer to grip the base with other hand when my jelqing hand reaches half way, not when it is at the head, as I feel I get more engorged doing this. For the pressured schlong I do 10 reps, each rep taking 1 minute.
I stand up, hold the head in my right hand and stretch forwards hard for 10 seconds, the use my left thumb and some soap to apply pressure from the base to the start of the head for 10 seconds, and then back again for 10 seconds. After this exercise I do another 2 mins of downward stretching. For my jelq and hold I jelq hard and slow to the base of the head and hold for 15 seconds. The head is very swollen and purple when I am holding which I feel is good.
I also grip the base of the penis with my other hand when I am holding which causes the shaft to become engorged too. I normally do this exercise for around 9 minutes, again to compensate for manual masturbation. I then do around 6 minutes of PC weighted, where I get as hard as possible, then push down as far as I can and flex my PC muscle for 5 seconds.
To warm down I rinse off in the shower, with the water quite hot and using a cloth to massage my penis as the water falls on it. This is just a basic overview of my current routine. All these instructions along with pictures and videos can be found on the excellent site penis health. However what is more valuable I feel is my experiences with problems I have encountered, and tips for other users. So here we go with my problems
PENIS LIGAMENT PAIN
When I do the long schlong I tend to stretch quite hard as I feel this will give quicker gains. Sometimes my penis ligaments in the base can really start to hurt. When this happens I recommend that you do not stretch as hard and take it a bit easy, still give it a good stretch but dont push it so hard.
GRIPPING THE PENIS
Because I do my exercises in the bath, my penis is wet. This makes it hard to grip it well and get good stretching in exercises such as the long schlong. To overcome this I completely dry my hands and penis before doing such exercises and I find this works well.
This is possibly the worst problem, throughout the entire program I will get hand aches in both hands, usually in the right hand with long schlong exercises, and the left hand in jelqing exercises. There is not really any solution, just grit your teeth. I would suggest after each exercise massaging your hands and holding them in the warm water before you commence the next exercise.
THE PRESSURED SCHLONG
This exercise is by far the most annoying and hardest exercise to do. In order to do 5 minutes of proper pressured schlong, it will usually take me around 15 minutes. This is because the head and below the head of the penis must be dry so I can grip it and pull hard, and the rest of the penis must be lubricated. I find that after 2 reps the lubrication (soap and water in my case) has seeped into where I am gripping the penis with my right hand and I can no longer grip and pull hard. Therefore I have to wash my hands and penis off after 2 reps, re-dry, re-apply lubrication, and do another 2 reps. This is the only way I can figure out to do it properly, and like I said is very time consuming.
LOSING ERECTION WHEN JELQING
This happens frequently and the only way to combat it is to manually masturbate back to a semi-erection. Therefore I add some time onto my jelqing time, so that if my program says 5 mins jelq, I will set the stopwatch for 8 minutes.
WANTING TO EJACULATE
This usually happens doing the PC Weighted, as you have to masturbate to a full erection and I am normally quite aroused after doing all the other exercises. This is just an issue of control and if you feel you are going to ejaculate either stop touching yourself or tense your PC muscle hard. So far I have never ejaculated doing my exercises.
Now onto my tips for other users. Read these and follow them and you will be gaining in no time!
ALWAYS WARM UP AND WARM DOWN
This is very important. You must always warm up your penis and warm down, you cannot just go straight into the exercises without a warm up, you will damage yourself. I find the wake up cloth is a good warm up.
STRETCH HARD, BUT NOT TOO HARD
You need to put some effort into your stretching and give a good hard pull so you can feel it pulling your ligaments at the base of the penis. But dont go too hard, you dont want to tear them completely.
JELQ HARD AND SLOW
You need to get a good grip so blood does not escape as you jelq, jelq slowly forcing the blood up the penis and engorging it fully. Also I like to grip the base again ready for my next jelq when my current jelqing hand is half way up. This means my penis is engorged below the jelqing hand as well as above and since I have been doing this I have been getting blood spots (good sign you are doing a good workout)
TAKE YOUR TIME
Penis Enlargement is very time consuming, although my routine is around 30-40 minutes, I usually spend closer to 60-90 minutes in the bath doing the exercises to make sure I do the correct amount of time for each exercise.
BE POSITIVE AND PERSIST
There is no point doing penis enlargement with a negative outlook. You must be positive even if you do not see gains. I did not see any erect gains in my first month but I have kept at it and I think they are coming now. Just keep at it.
MEASURE ONCE A MONTH
Dont measure yourself after every session, this will only dishearten you and make you negative. Measuring once a month will keep you enthusiastic when you see gains. In the meantime use your eyes, often you can tell you are bigger with your eyes.
EXERCISE YOUR PC MUSCLE
When I got my consultation it said the PC Weighted is the most important exercise in the routine, and at the time I thought it was rubbish because it is not actively doing anything to enlarge the penis, i.e. no stretching or jelqing. However now I understand. If you dont exercise the PC muscle you will not be able to get a good hard erection as the base muscles will not be strong and your penis will be loose and floppy at the base, even when hard.
If you want quick and good gains, combine your exercises with ProSolution pills. This will halve your gain time and further improve your peniss health.
HAVE REST DAYS
You cant go exercising every day or your penis may become damaged, it needs time to recover. I would suggest a program of 3 on 1 off or 2 on 1 off. Personally I exercise 3 on 1 off 2 on 1 off, so I exercise Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
Thats it from me! I hope I have remembered all the important tips and everything, Ive been writing this for a long time so my mind is quite tired now and I may have forgotten something so forgive me if I have! A lot of time, effort, and research went into this article and I hope you all enjoy it!
