A lot of men believe that the only way to increase the size of a penis is by getting a penis enlargement surgery. While that would be the only medical and surgical way, it is by no means the only way to enlarge a penis. There is a lot of misinformation out there regarding the sensitive issue of penis enlargement. Since nobody likes to openly talk about their private parts, a lot of men do not get the right information. Yes, penis enlargement surgeries can definitely help increase the size of the penis, but the potential side effects and the high costs render these surgeries almost useless. Fortunately, there are other, safer and cheaper ways to get the penis size you desire.
Is Your Penis Normal?
Before you begin to think about increasing your penis size, you have to answer one important question – do you really need to increase your penis size? Technically, any penis, which is normally formed, fully function and measures more than 7 cm when erect, is considered average and normal sized. Anything larger than that is above average. If you have a penis, which is smaller than 7 cm, it is called a micropenis. Even if the penis is fully function, it may not be able to provide sexual satisfaction to your partner. More important than the actual size of your penis, is its perceived size. How you perceive your penis is very important to how confident you feel about it. A lot of men constantly desire a larger penis even when they have perfectly normal sized genitals. Unfortunately, popular media has distorted the notion of a healthy, normal penis size, making a lot of men uncomfortable with their natural size, and driving them to want larger penises even when there is nothing wrong with what they have.
Penis pumps are specifically designed contractions that are used to create vacuum suction around the penis, to stretch the skin and the muscles of the penis. The basic understanding behind this device is that by apply pressure against the base, creating a vacuum around the penis and by suctioning it in this manner, more blood will flow towards the penis naturally, making it larger. In theory, this is an excellent innovation. However, whether you are able to benefit from it or not depends a lot on whether you use the penis pump correctly. Since pumps do draw blood into the penis and make it swollen, the penis appears bigger. This is a great technique to treat erectile dysfunction. The fact is that it may also give you temporary gains in penis size. However, these gains are only temporary and you may have to use the pump every time you want to gain in size.
Potential Side Effects
Your penis is a very delicate organ, which should ideally be handled very gently. The organ is made of ligaments, which are elastic issue that help in the erections. These support the erectile muscles of your penis and if damaged, they can cause permanent inability to get an erection. Penis pumps work on the premise that they would be used gently, with the recommended pressure. However, there in your over enthusiasm, you may forget this advisory and use the pump with vigor, causing direct damage to the ligaments at the base of your groin. When the elastic tissue is damaged, it can cause permanent damage to your penis and cause erections that are significantly less firms. Regrettably, this elastic tissue cannot be replaced using surgery and any damage to it is permanent and non reversible.
Using a penis pump can be an exciting experience. When you are using the pump, it creates a suctioning around the penis which could cause some kind of sexual stimulation. However, you have to understand that the pump is not designed to give you sexual stimulation and hence should only be used for the purpose it is intended for. The suctioning action and the immediate rush of blood to the penis can make it look swollen and therefore large. This swollen and larger appearance usually only lasts for a few hours and once the blood flow is normalized, your penis will come back to its original shape and size. There are no studies that can verify the claims of a penis pump. At best, what the penis pump does is to make your flaccid penis semi erect so that it can be used for penetration. Repeated pump use cannot and will not offer you any permanent results. In fact, the more you use the pump, the less spectacular the results will seem to be. For those who use the pump several times a day, it could lead to permanent damage to the delicate tendons of the penis.
Which Penis Enlargement Method is the Best?
