Streching devices and penis pumps are increasingly popular, often selling for hundreds of dollars. We recommend staying away from these devices, because using them can lead to permanent damage of the cavernous body and blood vessels of your penis. In worst case, the usage of penis extenders can result in erectile dysfunction, the inability to get and maintain an erection. Although many surgeons keep warning about them, these warnings are unheard and ignored by many men. Reconstructive surgery for a penis damaged by excessive and wrong use of streching devices is very expensive and rarely results in full recovery. Some of the world’s top penis enlargement surgeons from the well-known German Urology Center (Ph.D. Christoph Jethon et al.) even say that they are not interested in patients suffering from these kinds of injuries, because fixing these damages is extremely difficult. So, quickly forget about all this “Stud Quick Extender Mark III Pro Power Solution Super Size” crap! Don’t let the companies offering them fool you with claims like certifications as a medical device, doctor approvals, paid testimonials, photoshopped before and after pictures or similar.
According to Danoff, most of the “thousands of [products] on the market today rely on the placebo effect.” The well-known placebo effect simply means that “about 40 percent of people,” in Danoff’s words, will report a positive result when given a useless product and told it will work. “When it comes to things sexual, the power of suggestion is overwhelmingly more than what goes on between your legs,” said Danoff, explaining how once you’ve paid your $39.99 for a pill or a device, you’ll be inclined to believe it really works.
“Male anxiety about penis size may not reflect internalized, culturally arbitrary masculine stereotypes, but an accurate appreciation that size matters to many women — just as men feel legitimate anxiety when they enter the mating market about their intelligence, personality traits, sense of humor, social status, height, wealth, and other traits known to be favored by women across cultures,” study researcher Stuart Brody, a psychologist at the University of the West of Scotland, told LiveScience.”
Alistair took out a £5,000 loan to add to £3,000 of savings, and paid to go under the knife. (Surgery is difficult to obtain on the NHS, though it can be offered for psychological reasons, or to correct a true micropenis.) “It was the worst thing I’ve ever done,” he says. “The pain afterwards… I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t stand. It was beyond anything they told me to expect. The wound got infected, and when they gave me antibiotics, it kept seeping pus. The scarring has barely faded even now.” He says the fat injection became lumpy, while his erection no longer stands straight. “It just doesn’t look right. It’s deformed.”
They didn't convince either a jury or a set of appeals court judges. (As Judge Boggs eventually wrote of the company, "A reasonable juror could easily conclude that Berkeley's sales operation was, for the entire duration of its existence, little more than a colossal fraud.") After a six-week federal trial in early 2008, Warshak was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison, and he had to surrender $459 million in proceeds from the sale of Berkeley products and another $44 million for money laundering. His mother, Harriet, got two years in jail. Berkeley eventually entered bankruptcy.
Penis size is a considerable concern for men of all ages. Throughout history, the penis has defined masculinity. Discussion of the penis has been deemed taboo, socially unacceptable; and at other times, it is the topic of lighthearted conversation and jokes. The penis length, girth (width) and function, however, have been an issue for men throughout history.
Short of cosmetic, reconstructive surgery, there's not really much you can do. There are no magic pills – drugs or herbal – that are going to do it for you. Any of these that have any actual safe effects just promote effective blood flow within the penis, which is what's responsible for causing an erection. Increasing the bloodflow safely in the penis will allow the fullest erection you can physically have, or might prolong erection. But you can't get a bigger penis in this way safely.
Now that you know how to be all you can be, guys, I'm here to explain that men hung up on penis size are clueless about good sex. Any size penis can bring its owner great pleasure. But the best way to impress women erotically is to give them pleasure without using your penis. Only 25 percent of women are consistently orgasmic during vaginal intercourse no matter what the man's size, so for the vast majority of women, vaginal stretching and deep penetration are not direct routes to pleasure and orgasm. Most women need--and appreciate--gentle, patient, sensual clitoral stimulation with fingers, tongue, or toy.
Yes, it can, but surgery is always associated with risks, including anesthesia, wound healing deficits, pain from scars, worst case even a deformed penis or permanent erectile problems. It’s effective without a doubt, but the last resort in our opinion. For men with a real micropenis (smaller than 2.75 inch) it’s often the only solution and covered by health insurance, but only about 0.5% of all men worldwide suffer from this condition. If you are just a bit below average, the risk versus reward calculation is negative for surgical penis enlargement. Especially one problem that arises from cutting the ligaments, the erection pointing slightly downwards instead of straight forward, can become a real problem according to professor Kevan Wylie from the NHS, he said “It can make sex quite uncomfortable. You’ve got to do a lot more manoeuvring with your partner. The advantage of a 2cm (0,8 inch) gain in flaccid length is far outweighed by the loss of angle of erection.”
Penis pumps. These plastic tubes create a partial vacuum around the penis. The vacuum draws blood into the organ, resulting in temporary size enhancement. Models differ, but all include a plastic tube and a pump operated by a hand bulb. You squeeze the bulb, which evacuates air from the tube, drawing a little extra blood into the penis. Just remember, the effect is modest and temporary.
Sometimes men with erection problems or a diminished libido have low levels of testosterone, Boyle says. Testosterone deficiencies can also affect mood and energy levels. Boyle tests for testosterone levels and prescribes it as a topical gel, though she warns it is only safe when prescribed and monitored by a physician. Nonprescription testosterone, such as the kind used by some bodybuilders, is dangerous, she warns.
