Is Increasing Penis Size Possible?
What if I told you it was 100% possible to increase your penis size?
But, let's be 100% clear. We're not talking about 3 or 5 inch length and girth gains.
I'll say it upfront - that's 100% BS
In fact, we'll as far as to say that a 5 inch gain is impossible.
However, a 3/4 inch gain or even 1 inch is completely possible.
When we're talking about penis enlargement we mean, on average, 1.5 inches and for every guy and a strong potential of up to two inches gained in their lifetime.
Oh, did I mention that these methods are all-natural (as backed up by scientific evidence within the past decade) and extremely cost effective?
Not to mention it's becoming exceedingly popular all around the world.
How to Increase Penis Length
Increasing penis length is fairly straightforward.
All you really have to do is train by stretching it.
All these methods "stretch" the penis to train it.
First we're going to explain why it works.
The Science Behind Penis Size Growth
This is why stretching works:
You're creating small disruptions in your penile tissue called micro-tears.
Your body's natural response to micro-tears is to heal and repair itself bigger and stronger.
This is almost exactly like conventional bodybuilding (weight training).
With weight training it's called hypertrophy.
With penis stretching, it's called hyperplasia.
The main difference between the two is that in cell hypertrophy, each individual tissue cell grows bigger and the result is more visual size.
In the case of cell hyperplasia, the micro tears are filled in with more cells so you gain real, visual, physical size by simply having more cells in your penile tissue.
The best thing about cell hyperplasia is that the results are essentially permanent.
With weight training at the gym? Not permanent.
Ever see someone "go out of shape"? They essentially lose all their muscle from not working out in a long time.
But that's only in the case of hypertrophy, not hyperplasia.
This is a really important fact.
Why is it so important?
It's because you essentially only have to do your penis training once in your lifetime and you'll have the gains for the rest of your life.
Proof From Clinical Studies
Don't take our word for it.
Clinical labs have literally collected data in studies done on stretching methods.
The results are as follows.
(Specifically, clinical studies were done with penis extender devices.)
Here are the clinical results for one such study:
Amazing, huh? This study showed that an average erect length gain of 0.71 inches was achieved after 6 months of using a penis extender device!
Penis Extender Devices
Don't want to spend all that time and effort stretching?
Then you might want to let a penis extender device do all the stretching for you automatically!
Check out the best penis extenders - and learn how they work, and the best one to buy.
But do penis extenders work?
Penis extenders are the only method that have been clinically proven in a rigorous medical setting.
Here are before and after photos of men who have used penis extenders (PhalloGauge Medical Lab Study):
Penis Stretching Exercises
There are about 15 different penis stretching exercises.
If you want to get started on them right away - we'll teach you how to do all the exercises here.
Hangers and Weights
Penis Enlargement Hangers & Weights:
Penis hanging utilizes the same traction principle as extender devices.
However, instead of the device creating the traction through elongation of the device, the traction is created by weights that are hung from the penis as a result of gravity.
Like weight lifting, you increase the load by increasing the weights hung from the device are done as you progress from a newbie to a veteran.
While these devices can induce great stretches, they are obviously very inconvenient to use unless you can set aside a specific time and place to use them.
How to Increase Penis Girth
Penis girth is a measure of how wide or thick your penis shaft is.
The science behind penis girth size gains is the same as length - only the direction of growth is outward, not length-wise.
So how do you increase girth?
There's a couple ways that you can do it.
The first way is an extremely popular, well-known exercise known as jelqing.
Jelqing is popular because it's free - all you need is your hands to do the exercise.
It also can contribute to something minor length gains as well, due to the pulling nature of the exercise.
To summarize jelqing in a few words, it's essentially like milking your penis.
You create a OK sign with your fingers and "milk" your semi-hard (70-80% of your maximum hardness erection level) penis from the base of your shaft down to the base of your glans (mushroom tip).
That's the whole process in a nutshell.
However, there's a whole bunch of important considerations that you need to learn to make sure you're doing it properly.
In our ultimate jelqing guide, you'll learn:
- How hard to jelq.
- A solid jelqing routine.
- What lubricant to use
- What angles to jelq at.
We go way more into detail about penis pumps here.
Unlike traditional air-based vacuum pumps, the Bathmate is our favorite because it uses a water-filled chamber to create the suction on your penis.
The reason it's safer compared to air-based pumps is because the water prevents your penis from getting blisters.
Additionally, the pressure is much easier to maintain and control which also contributes to the safety factor.
Air-based vacuums put pressure directly on your penis skin and have the safety risk. Water-based vacuums distribute the pressure evenly in the liquid, evenly spreading the pressure forces on your penis.
The Bathmate will provide temporary girth gains that are immediately noticeable after doing a training session with it.
However, long-term girth gains can be observed with consistent use.
The Bathmate was meant to be used in the shower or bathtub with single-day training sessions that last between 10 to 15 minutes.
Contrary to what you might expect at first, using the Bathmate is actually kind of fun rather than tedious.
It never gets old to see how much bigger your penis temporarily increases immediately after a Bathmate session.
These exercises for girth use compression to stress the tissues of the penis, encouraging new cellular growth and enlargement. Compression exercises are particularly good for girth expansion.
The Compressor is one of the more common advanced compression exercises and is excellent for girth enhancement. This is a two-handed exercise. Here are the steps for doing the Compressor exercise:
- Use an overhand OK-grip tightly around the base of your penis.
- Place your other hand in an overhand OK-grip, tightly over the area where the glans of your penis meets the shaft. Do not put direct pressure on the glans.
- Slowly bring both hands slightly toward each other, compressing the shaft of the penis.
- While the shaft is compressed, bend the shaft back and forth, to put tension along those areas to increase growth.
Common Penis Enlargement Supplements
You can check out the normal, day-to-day foods that you can eat to increase penis size here.
However, here are some non-conventional herbs that you can eat to increase size:

Penis Enlargement Surgery
Surgery is the most radical, risky method of enlarging your penis.
The effects are permanent and the results are immediate.
The increases are most noticeable in the flaccid state, so be sure you understand that quoted increases may reflect flaccid growth, and not erect.
How Penis Enlargement Surgery Works
Penis enlargement surgery involves medical alterations to the various parts of the penis.
There are different procedures for what you are trying to specifically accomplish.
For lengthening, the ligament attaching the inner penis to the public bone is severed, allowing the inner penis to slip forward.
For widening, fat is injected under the skin of the shaft, or a cellular matrix sheet is wrapped around the penis shaft, under the skin.
Glanular enhancement enlarges the head of the penis, through injection of fat material, to keep it proportional when other surgery is performed.
Just as there are many plastic surgery options to target your nose, cheekbones, or breasts, there are a few different ones to target length, girth, and specific part, in the penis surgical procedures; there is no one solution procedure to getting a bigger penis.
Risks of penis enlargement surgery include:
- Loss of erection angle
- Erectile dysfunction (not being able to get a proper erection or orgasm)
- Nerve damage or loss of sensation
- Numerous other potential complications, up to and including death
Common Penis Enlargement Procedures
There are three primary surgeries used for penis enlargement:
- Ligament severing
- Dermal implant
- Glanular enhancement
How to Increase Penis Hardness
After all, it's useless to have all that size when you can't even get your penis fully erect when it's time to do the dirty.
Let's take a step back and make sure we understand how the penis works again.
When its flaccid or hanging, that means there's little to no blood flow in the penis. But when you're at your maximum erection size, blood flow is at a maximum.
That is, a lot of blood is flowing in all of the cells and cavities of your penile tissue.
I'm sure you already know this but as you age, the ability to get blood flowing in your penis decreases.
This is called erectile dysfunction.
However just because you're not old, it doesn't mean your subject to your penis not working properly.
In fact there are some guys who simply watch too much porn such that they can't even get hard in real life sex.
Again, if you have trouble getting hard for whatever reason, you're wasting all the time and effort you put into making size gains because it can't even be used.
That's why we here on the PhalloGauge Team constantly stress how important blood flow is for increasing penis size, as well as overall men's sexual health.
One exercise that you can do to improve blood flow and increase overall hardness is called kegels.
Originally, it was an exercise for women but even the Harvard Men's Health Journal recognizes its health benefits and penile health as well.
In a nutshell, kegels are the squeezing of your PC muscles which are located slightly above the area between your testicles and anus.
By training these muscles you can get harder erections and a stronger ejaculate shot.
It also used to naturally increase blood flow. As a result, you can get harder, fuller erections, allowing you to consistently reach your maximum erect size.
Another popular technique to increase and the maximize blood flow through your penis is to do another exercise called edging.
When doing edging, you are trying to maintain a 80-90% arousal level.
The goal is to not hit 100% arousal level or else you orgasm. Game over. Edging training failed - try again after you recover.
Naturally, you're maximizing blood flow in your penis during this time, but another side benefit is that it strengthens your mind-penis connection so that you don't orgasm too early when you're having sex.
It's a great exercise to treat premature ejaculation, a type of erectile dysfunction.
However, if you're too lazy to do kegels or edging, then you can use thermal wraps to wrap around your penis which trap heat inside your penis to prevent vasoconstriction or the narrowing of the blood vessels.
These wraps naturally provides an enhanced blood flow to your penis without having to put in any time or effort.
All you do is just where the thermal wrap and reap the benefits.
How Long Will it Take to Increase My Penis Size?
It all depends on how much time and effort you're willing to put into it.
Overall, the more time and effort you put into it, they more results you're going to get.
Obviously, that's up to a certain point. Like we said at the beginning of the article you can't increase your penis size by 5 inches.
There's some genetic limit that prevents you from doing so.
But, like we also said at the beginning of the article, every guy can expect at least 2 inches of size gains in their lifetime.
Call me crazy, but that's a lot of size, considering the average size is about 5.5 inches.
Managing your expectations is important. So the time it takes to obtain these sorts of realistic size gains will usually take between 4 to 6 months.
After this amount of time you will definitely notice an increase in size.
Again, we like to stress that these results are permanent unlike muscle weight training which you have to spend hours and days maintaining for the rest of your life. That is, if you want to keep those muscle gains.
Penis Enlargement Safety
Is it safe?
If you do it properly then it's 100% safe.
The complications start to occur when guys get too ambitious and impatient and start to overtrain.
Then, they end up pulling a ligament or bursting a blood vessel due to their own irresponsibility.
If you go to the gym and it's your first time ever, you wouldn't go straight to 300 pound dumbbells, would you?
The same is 100% true with increasing penis size.
Just be smart about it, start off small, and slowly work your way up and you will gain your size without sacrificing your penile health.
Again, we urge you to speak with your doctor or urologist before trying to increase your penis size.
Common Mistakes to Avoid When Trying to Increase Penis Size
While there are actually a few more common mistakes that guys make than the ones listed here, we're going to cover the ones you definitely need to know, right now.
Just like with regular fitness, overtraining is very real and undesirable.
It usually happens when guys get too excited and start stretching either too hard or too long during the day.
The biggest disadvantage to over training is that when you injure yourself, you set yourself back 1 - 3 months - a big loss of time.
That's because you have to spend time healing yourself - very similar to a athlete who tears their ACL or breaks their leg.
Natural penis enlargement is also not the fastest process, so any setbacks simply increase the burden on you.
In terms of not stretching too hard, the easiest rule to follow is to make sure that you don't feel any sharp intense pain.
If you follow that simple rule then you won't overtrain from applying too much force.
Overtraining from pulling to hard is not an issue that arises a lot, because once guys feel pain, they will stop - their natural reaction to pain.
Complications occur when guys think that they have to create pain to get results - completely untrue, and now you know better!
Just like regular fitness training, recovery is a very important aspect of succeeding.
The most common way that guys will overtrain is when they spend too much time each day stretching.
Specifically, you need to give yourself sufficient time every single day to rest and allow the tissues to regrow bigger and stronger than before.
So what's the general rule to follow for overtraining by stretching for too long?
For manual penis stretching exercises, don't stretch more than 20 minutes a day.
For those who use penis extender devices, don't stretch for more than 6 hours a day.
Again if you follow these simple rules then you shouldn't run into the issues of over training.
Undertraining is the opposite, but also an undesirable result.
Undertraining is pretty simple: it's when you either don't pull hard enough or you don't pull for long enough.
Again, we will make the common fitness analogy: Like with regular fitness, you always want to be challenging yourself.
So if you do a stretch and you don't feel any pain, try to see if you can pull a little harder. Then, try to see if you can go for a little longer.
It helps to log and report your progress, just as gym goers do in their notebooks. They keep track of number of reps done and weight used.
So what's the general rule to follow to prevent undertraining?
The rule is, if you feel you can go a little harder or go for a little longer, then you're probably not pushing yourself hard enough.
It helps to log how long you've been training for so that you can get a solid record on what works and what doesn't work for you.
With manual stretching exercises, they're a little bit more tricky compared to wearing a penis extender device because it's hard to apply a stable and consistent force in both the strength of the force and the amount of time you're applying that force for.
Penis extender devices don't have this problem because you just set the tension in the extender and then you wear it for a certain amount of time - usually 3 to 4 hours a day.
Additionally, with penis extender devices, you don't have to account for the "downtime" that you experience between each manual stretching repetition.
A common mistake is that guys will unknowingly cut corners by timing their manual stretching session for 20 minutes, but don't account for the time spent between each rep.
So what happens is they think they spent 20 minutes stretching, but really only spent 13 minutes in reality.
See, if you just follow the prescribed instructions for penis extender devices then you're pretty much set and you don't really have to worry about overtraining or undertraining at all.
The main point is that manual stretching exercises require more effort on your part - both mental and physical effort.
But if you decide to go the manual stretching route, you have to be very diligent to make sure you're avoiding these mistakes.
Not Getting a Proper Blood Flow
Not getting the proper blood flow in your penis is also another big mistake we see guys made.
They think that they can just stretch and do the exercises and they'll gain size.
This couldn't be farther from the truth.
The exercises and penis extender devices just allow you to train and break your penile tissue down.
But it's absolutely crucial that you have a blood flow that allows you to recover.
The strong blood flow is what delivers the nutrients to your penile tissue so that it can build back stronger and bigger.
The easiest way to remember why you need a strong blood flow is that you can't build something out of nothing.
This means you have to deliver the building blocks to your penile tissue somehow.
How? With your blood!
Unfortunately, with the advent of pornography and other overstimulating images being increasingly common across the internet, many guys are victim to killing their own blood flow by giving themselves and erectile dysfunction that makes it really hard for them to get hard.
If you're not able to give yourself a solid erection within 15 minutes of trying, then you probably have an erectile dysfunction problem.
This will also affect your progress with your penis stretching exercises and your results for length.
Remember, the tissue won't be able to grow and the actual length gains won't be made.
But blood flow isn't just for length gains, it's also the direct indicator of how well you can reach your maximum size when it's time to actually have sex.
So blood flow is actually twice as important.
Don't write it off as irrelevant.
Greatly reduce the risk of injury
Avoiding injury has two major reasons. One is general penile health, you need your penis working properly. After all, you use it every day when you use the bathroom. The second reason is because injury creates long-setbacks. If you injure yourself, you cannot continue to do penis stretching training, which adds on a 1-3 months of delay because you need to focus on recovery, instead.
Maximize efficiency to achieve desired results
Maximizing efficiency is important because while we all want to get results instantly, the simple fact is, it’s impossible. No bodybuilder went from 150 lbs. to 230 lbs. in a month. However, we can focus on avoiding mistakes and doing the correct things to make sure we are efficiently maximizing our efforts to achieve results as fast as possible.
This guide emphasizes on penis stretching traction methods, but is completely applicable to manual exercises
The reason we focus on penile extender traction methods is because they are clinically proven. The purpose of this guide is to fill in the blanks so that you avoid any pitfalls when you start to use the penis stretching methods.
Don't use too much force when stretching
The biggest misconception about penis training: "I need to use lots of force"
When you work out at the gym, what size weights are there, usually? The dumbbells usually range from 5 lbs. to 80 lbs. For most people, 5 lb. to 40 lb. dumbbells are what most people deal with. These weights ranges are fairly comfortable for people to use and, of course, with sufficient training, you increase to much higher.
That’s the context for gym weight training.
How about for penis stretching? Your penis is not a muscle, it’s a flexible organ. It is simply not capable of handling 10 lbs. of force, especially when you’re first starting out.
Yet for some reason, guys feel that they have to apply such large forces to the penis to achieve results. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Force on its own does not increase penis length - repair micro tears in the penis tissue does.
The force you need to apply is just enough to induce micro-tears in your penis tissue. Fortunately, this is way less than 3 lbs. of force. In fact, the micro-tears are safely generated by applying small to moderate force for long periods of time. Applying a small force for long periods of time (4-6 hours a day), is the correct way to create the micro-tears and go about penis stretching. It’s also the best way to ensure safety and prevent injury.
Good news is that you don't have to measure the exact stretching force.
Since the emphasis is focused on the time, and not so much the level of force, this allows you to not be so concerned with the exact force you need to apply. The bets rule of thumb is: APPLY ENOUGH FORCE THAT KEEPS YOUR PENIS IN ITS FULLY ELONGATED, LENGTHENED TRACTION POSITION.
That’s as much force as you need to apply. The long duration will slowly, but surely act upon your penis, inducing the necessary micro-tears to be repaired bigger and stronger, later.
Don't stretch for too many hours each day
It doesn't give your body enough time to repair and grow bigger and stronger
Another extremely common problem we see with guys is similar to using too much force when stretching. They feel that if they stretch longer during the day, they will make gains faster.
Unfortunately, this is not true, simply because cellular growth has a ceiling which and is limited by the amount of hormones in your body. For example, when everyone hits puberty, you get your "growth spurt" because of the massive hormonal changes that are going through your body.
Remember, stretching facilitates, or induces penis growth, by creating the micro-tears, and then your body responds to the changes by repairing the tears bigger and stronger.
If you stretch for too long each day, your body doesn’t have enough time to repair itself. This is exactly like the key pillar of weight training: Adequate rest and recovery is essential to maximizing gains. Bodybuilders will do this by not working a muscle group in consecutive days, but rather let the muscle group rest and work on a different muscle group the following day.
Aim for 4-6 hours of automatic stretching or 20-30 minutes of manual stretching each day.
However, you don’t want to stretch too little hours during the day such as to not stimulate significant growth. If you are stretching between 4 – 6 hours each day, you’re right on track. We don’t advise going over 8 hours a day.
Always warm-up before doing any sort of exercise
It's not a mission-critical mistake, but it increases the time-to-results
How to warm-up:
This is one of the most important things you do to prevent injury:
With a hot wash cloth, warm your entire groin area for a period of 8 to 10 minutes. Re-heat washcloth every minute or so to keep it hot. This is recommended, as moist heat penetrates better.
This wrap is a silicone-rubber insulator that traps heat in your penis.
It because it’s 100% functional. The simple but smart design sticks to itself, and is easily cleaned with just water.
Make sure your penis is wrapped and thoroughly heated.
You want to feel your penis radiating heat when you are through. You want to warm all the ligaments even the ones under your penis and the sides of your groin area.
Not doing any penis exercises on a daily basis
How impotant is consistency?
Extremely important. No consistency, no results. Period.
While you won’t technically lose your results if, for some reason, you fall-off with your routine, the results you get by 2-4 weeks won’t be noticeable.
Then, some guys actually believe that penis stretching doesn’t work. When, in fact, the problem was that they never really committed and stuck with a solid routine.
Consistency is very hard with manual enlargement exercises
We’re going to be honest. Doing manual exercises is extremely hard to maintain consistency with.
Most guys will be super motivated, and go strong and do their daily exercises for 2 weeks.
Then they might start missing a couple days by week 3. No big deal right?
Well, 2 missed days a week turns into 3, then, by the time you know it most guys say to themselves "is it really worth it?" or "I have to focus on other priorities right now (work, school, etc.)".
We’ve all been there. Whether it’s getting in shape, or working on a long-term side project, lack of consistency is the single-most important reason why we don’t reach the goal. It’s marathon, not a sprint.
Here's how to improve exercise consistency:
The key to being consistent is developing a routine.
A routine is where desire and commitment meets practicality.
This is pretty self-explanatory. If you value health over money, you’ll find yourself cooking your meals every day rather than eating-out every night. Or probably some healthy, balanced medium: e.g. eat out for lunch, cook for dinner.
The easiest way to stick with a routine is to make it as easy as possible on yourself. For example, if you want to get fit, you may want to consider buying a gym membership that does laundry for you (at a small extra cost), so that that you always have work-out clothes, and decrease the possibility of missing a workout – prevent yourself from having an excuse like, "Oh, well I don’t have clothes today, I’ll just workout tomorrow."
Be sure to always stop if you feel pain
There is "good" pain and "bad" pain
Let’s be real clear on what pain is good and what pain is bad. Pain is your body’s natural line of defense to let you know that something is wrong. Without pain, we could be putting our hand on a stove, and not even know it. With pain, our body can make a sound judgement and react to such dangers.
Good Pain: Slight Discomfort
These are sensations that you should be experiencing if you’re doing penis stretching correctly.
- Mild burning sensation, similar to muscle soreness during a gym workout.
- Slight, weak sensation after finishing manual exercises, or a penis extender device session.
- Rashes. While common, yet annoying, and provide slight discomfort, sometimes they are unavoidable, but tend to go away after a while.
- Any discomfort that goes away after 30-minutes to an hour.
Bad Pain: Sharp, Intense, Extreme Sensations
These sensations occur when you’ve either over-trained or pushed yourself too hard. As with any form of physical therapy, to extremely minimize the risk of such injury, start off small and easy, and work your way up.
- Any sharp, acute, intense pain in penis ligaments or skin.
- Any pain that lasts more than 24 hours and has no signs of decreasing in intensity (see a doctor, immediately).
Do not stretch while unconscious or sleeping
Why is it bad? Isn't sleeping the best time to multitask?
For those using penis extender devices, some may naturally have the idea, "Hey, why don’t I stretch at night – it’s the perfect time to multitask." Some may also hear the idea from other people. Fair enough, but we’ll tell you why you should never stretch at night.
There's no way to monitor current condition of your body
When you’re sleeping, your detection senses are completely impaired. This is bad because the device may slip off, especially if you roll around in your sleep. If this happens within the first hour or so, and the device comes off, you’re effectively not stretching at all, and you won’t get results.
The opposite is also true. Say you sleep for 8 or more hours and the devices stays on that whole time. This starts to get into the region of overtraining and can negatively affect your results and penis health.
Additionally, if a device malfunctions on you, it has risks against your health and you have no way to monitor or fix the problem.
You won't get a good sleep
This is A HUGE REASON, and by itself, is the best reason to not wear a penis traction extender device while sleeping.
Wearing a penis device creates a slight discomfort at your pelvis area, naturally, because it is a training exercise. This is normal. However, this discomfort while trying to sleep is completely abnormal. It will affect your sleep quality, ability to fall asleep, and ability to stay asleep.
Hate to say it, but sleep is way more important than penis size. Quality of sleep affects how you function during the day, your mood, as well as happiness, and productivity. It also affects hormonal balances that directly affect your health. Sacrificing these essential lifestyle factors for penis size is completely not worth it.
Instead, multitask and stretch during work or school
That way, in case there is an emergency, you can take action and fix it -- this can't be done while sleeping.
Our device, the PhalloGauge was designed to address this problem. It was meant to be used during the day, to multitask during work or other daily activities to get your daily stretch in.
It accomplishes this by being 100% discreet (even under tight jeans), and is very easy to put on and take off each day (less than 30 seconds, each).
Nobody wants to come home tired from work and have to do manual stretching. So do it during the day with the PhalloGauge and when you get home? Relax.
In conclusion, increasing your penis size it is 100% possible for every guy.
As we found out in this article, it takes a lot of work, but with all of the guides and tutorials on our site, you'll be light years ahead of the average guy.
Additionally, because natural enlargement is 100% possible, technological advancements have been made to help automate the stretching exercise process to help you save both time and effort.
