No need to go under the knife for a larger penis

No need to go under the knife for a larger penis | Jo Divine

While many women worry about the size of their breasts with many undergoing breast augmentations, more men are turning to surgery and alternative methods to increase their penis size.

Even though many surveys show that women aren’t concerned about how big their partner’s penis is, many men worry about their size.

According to Indian Association of Sexology chairman Dr T Kamaraj, a Chennai-based sexologist, it is estimated at least 1% of men in India suffer from this ‘changing room syndrome’. He says that, “They don’t walk into a crowded urinal because they are paranoid others will see. They rule out marriage and, worse, feel miserable about themselves”.

A study of over 14,000 men and women by Dr Kristen Mark, Assistant professor of Health Promotion at University of Kentucky, revealed that it’s not about your size, but what you do with it. He found that 45% of men wanted a bigger penis, yet 66% of all respondents agreed that size didn’t matter, whereas performance and creativity did.

One key aspect of the research was the duration of sexual intercourse, not penis size. Women wished that sexual intercourse would last longer, as it often left them unsatisfied. 45% of men said they didn’t last as long as they’d like to, leaving their partners sexually unfulfilled.

This is mainly a problem about women taking longer to become aroused and lack of appropriate stimulation, as 70% of women orgasm through clitoral stimulation, not penetrative sex.

Interestingly, 45.7% of men said they would be willing to try a penis enhancement product to last longer.

Recent research from UCLA and Cal State LA (2014) found that 84% of women feel “very satisfied” with their man’s penis size, 14% wished it was bigger and 25% would prefer their partner to have a smaller penis. The survey was completed by 26,437 women aged between 18-65, a self selected group, but large enough to allay concerns about demographic representation.

The typical non erect penis is 3.5 inches long but smaller flaccid penises grow more when erect compared to larger flaccid penises.

2.5% of erections measure less than 3.8 inches, 13.5% are 3.8-4.5 inches, 68% are 4.6-6 inches, 13.5% are 6.1-6.8 inches and 2.5% are longer than 6.9 inches.

So are men going under the knife unnecessarily to increase the size of their penis?

One leading cosmetic surgeon in the UK, Dr Roberto Viel, says that penis size can be significantly enhanced in both length and girth without affecting sexual performance or sensitivity by well established surgical penoplasty.

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks such as infection, bleeding, loss of sensation and scarring, in addition to the penis becoming misshapened from having fat injected into it to increase girth.

Sexual medicine consultant Professor Kevin Wylie advises that penis enlargement can be ineffective, expensive and potentially harmful. He says that injecting fat into the penis leads to the body absorbing the fat over time, reducing the penis back to its former size. Having a penoplasty may boost a man’s confidence, but if he doesn’t make some lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and taking regular exercise, the outcome will not be long lasting.

Non invasive ways to increase the size of your penis

Lose weight

Being overweight can make a man either feel unattractive or no longer attractive to his partner, who may avoid having sex, and it can also make his penis appear shorter too.

As fat accumulates in the lower abdomen, the apparent size of the penis changes according to Dr Ira Shalip, clinical professor of urology at the University of California. A large pre-pubic fat pad can make the penile shaft look shorter, in effect, burying the penis.

Many urologists often motivate their patients to lose weight by telling them that they will gain at least an inch in size by simply losing weight.

Poor dietary habits can cause heart attacks due to fatty deposits sticking to the lining of the arteries around the heart, restricting blood flow in the coronary arteries. This can also impede the blood flow to and within the penis, preventing it from becoming erect.

Studies have found that erectile dysfunction is relatively uncommon in men who eat a traditional Mediterranean diet, which includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, olives and wine, particularly red (K. Esposito et al, 2006).

Exercise regularly

Exercising regularly will not only make you feel better, boosting your sexual self confidence, but can also help with weight loss, reduce high blood pressure, stress and anxiety, improving overall health and well-being. Any form of anaerobic exercise that increases your heart rate is beneficial, including cycling, running, brisk walking and swimming.

Men have a pelvic floor too

Men have a pelvic floor too, just like women, but very few men are aware that doing pelvic floor exercises can increase penile hardness and rigidity, improving the quality of your erections. It is recommended that you seek advice from a physiotherapist trained in men’s health to instruct you how to do these exercises correctly.

Using a penis pump

Often considered a gimmick, some penis pumps, such as the Bathmate Hydromax can help improve the size of your penis and quality of erections too. The saying “use it or lose it” is true and the penis needs to be exercised to keep it functioning properly.

Not just beneficial for men who have erectile dysfunction, using a penis pump regularly can help prevent men from developing ED by maintaining good penis health, which, in turn, improves the quality of erections, strength of orgasms and helps you last longer in bed too.

The risks of side effects or complications of using a penis pump are lower than those of medication and surgery. Occasionally, slight bruising may occur around the base of the pump where it is pressed against the body, but this sensation disappears over time as you get used to using it daily.

Penis pumps are completely non-invasive and do not have lasting side effects, unlike surgical treatments, injections or medication.

By using a hydro pump, rather than an air pump, you reduce the risk of over pumping, a problem that can occur with other devices. Using warm water relaxes the tissues of the penis and enhances blood flow throughout the penis, while the vacuum opens up the tissues and blood vessels. Whilst inside the Bathmate Hydromax, the volume of the penis will usually be over 25% bigger than your normal erection, which refreshes the penis with fresh oxygenated blood and helps enlarge the corpora cavernosa – the spongy tissue that holds blood during an erection.

By using a hydro pump for 15 minutes as part of your daily shower or bath routine, you can help avoid erectile dysfunction and improve your sexual performance.

Regular use of a penis pump improves oxygenation of penile tissues, enhances blood flow and prevents formation of cavernosal fibrosis, all of which increase the chances of preserving erectile function, girth and length and improving the quality and quantity of erections (Dalkin et al 2007).

Most men who regularly use penis pumps experience more pronounced growth in the girth of their penis than in the length of their penis, which many women find to be more important for sexual stimulation than overall length.

Constriction Rings

Constriction rings are a great way to increase the size of your penis and help you to last longer. From vibrating cockrings that also offer clitoral stimulation to your partner to non-vibrating cockrings that can even be worn around the testicles too, these are a simple way to enhance your penis size and sexual pleasure too.

Rather than being concerned about the size of their penis, men should concentrate on talking to their partners about what they both want sexually and explore new ways in which to enjoy sexual intimacy and pleasure, such as using sexual lubricant, incorporating sex toys into their sex play and trying new positions.

Whatever the size of your penis, most men can rest assured that their partner is more than happy with their manhood. It is what you do with it that matters, not how big it is: so stop worrying and start enjoying sex.
