What is Male Enhancement Cream?

Male enhancement cream is a term for any lotion that is applied to and rubbed onto the penis.

This also includes penis enlargement oil.

The effects are marketed differently ranging from claims to increased penis size to improving erectile quality.

We will learn from this article which effects are true and which ones are pure fiction.

Why guys think that creams work.

There are no clinical studies proving that penis enlargement creams work.

Unfortunately, this is the case. That's too bad because a cream is convenient and easy to apply.

However, they fall in the same category as hair re-growth creams in terms of their effectiveness.

Additionally, if they could increase penis size, you would expect penis creams to be ubiquitous and you'd know that every guy would be using it.

That's partially why guys think that creams work, because they're so easy to use. They figure that they might as well try it. They start to feel some of the natural sensational effects (which we will discuss below) and think it's working.

Either that, or they have a case of buyer's denial and continue to use them even though they see no measurable results or visual improvement.

What to truly expect when using male enlargement cream?

First of all, it really depends on what brand of cream that you're buying.

This is important because a lot of the creams simply don't do anything at all.

We've typically found this to be true of the ones from Asia that are simply placebos.

What about the ones that actually do something?

If you happen to use a male enhancement cream that actually does something, then when you first apply it, you can expect to feel a tingle.

Some creams also simply increase the sensitivity of the penis and make stimulating it feel better.

Other creams tend to temporarily increase blood flow in the penis because the absorbed cream contains compounds that cause vasodilation. Of all the creams you might try, these might be the most useful out of all the ones that actually do something.

One could argue that penis enlargement creams that cause vasodilation can help with enlargement, however the temporal effects of them are so small, the effects may be negligible.

Does male enhancement cream help with penis enlargement?

Long answer, short? No.

Any topical cream - cream that is rubbed onto the skin of the penis - simply doesn't help with penis enlargement in any way.

This also includes using it in conjunction with penis enlargement exercises and techniques that work, like jelqing and penis stretching.

The way they try to market penis creams for penis enlargement.

Unfortunately, companies have tried to market male enhancement creams as products that can permanently increase penis size.

We know this is not true because the only way to permanently enlargen your penis (besides surgery) is through exercises which triggers cell hyperplasia (the proven science behind it's growth).

Better ways to increase blood flow in your penis

A free, better way to increase blood flow in your penis

If you haven't tried this before, this method is a routine that you can follow to regularly increase blood flow in your penis. That, and it requires zero effort to do. Literally.

That method is none other than regulating a warm to high body temperature when you're sleeping. This because heat naturally creates vasodilation in the penis.

A perfect example is to consider the opposite when you're freezing. Your pores close up, and you tend to curl up. Combine this with the fact that blood pressure also tends to increase in cold temperatures. In a nutshell this is the opposite of vasodilation: vasoconstriction.

However, when warm, pores open up, blood flow naturally increases because you can actually measure your blood pressure and it will generally be lower. This is also a contributor to why flaccid penis lengths of men in tropical climates like Africa and South America tend to be longer - simply more blood flowing down there.

Make your own erection tea brew.

Why rub a sticky cream on your penis when you can simply make a great tasting drink that takes just as much time as it takes to make a cup of coffee?

My making this erection tea brew, you'll get fuller, harder erections for only cents. Not only is this a better option compared to male enhancement cream, but it's also much better than a lot of the penis pills on the market.

It works because it uses black tea which is a cortisol blocker and its effect is that it lowers blood pressure. The ginger in the erection tea is also known for its vasodilation properties and has been used for thousands of years in Asia.

However if brewing a takes too much time, simply eat these foods for improved penis size.

The Verdict?

Penis enhancement cream has been on the market for a while, but it has only gained minor traction.

While some are not inherently bad, there are a lot on the market that are placebos and do nothing.

When they do have some effects, they mostly just help to improve blood flow in the penis, however they are still advertised as a 'penis enlargement product'.

For improving blood flow, there are cheaper and more practical alternatives like erection tea and simply keeping warm at night for a good 6-8 hours.

If you're truly looking to enlargen your penis perfectly, just know that it's 100% possible, learn the results to expect from enlargement, and that it can only be done with penis exercises, all of which are found in our guide on how to increase penis size.
