Can You Make Your Penis Bigger?

Of all the sex-related topics out there, the one surrounded by the most myth is definitely penis enlargement. If you’re a guy who’s ever checked their spam folder, you’ll see reams and reams of emails promising more inches with pills, creams, surgery and more. Don’t trust them, obviously — however, there are so many who are trying to sell people on having a bigger penis that there must be more to it, right?

Sadly, not really.

Can you make your penis bigger?

A past article we wrote on this blog was about how to have sex if his manhood is too big. In that article, we stressed that size isn’t all that important (when a guy’s penis is big, it’s the positions that matter, not the penis size). However, what we are doing today is presenting clear information about some of the most commonly talked-about size enhancing techniques out there, starting with the penis pump.


Penis pumping is the act of slipping your manhood into a specially-designed pump, letting all the air out and letting it do all the work for you.

How does it work? Pumping the penis pump creates a vacuum around your penis, causing the blood vessels and associated muscles to expand as blood is drawn into the vacuum.

Is it effective? Yes and no. With a penis pump, your penis really does grow – noticeably so. However as soon as you release the vacuum, your penis goes right back to original size. There’s no evidence of long-term benefits, but they do have one advantage for sufferers of erectile dysfunction: since the vacuum draws blood into the penis, you can quickly roll on a gently constricting cockring after removing the pump, thereby ‘trapping’ the penis in an erect state. While some people who have tried this technique report positive findings, we suggest consulting a doctor first.


Jelqing is an ancient tradition of penis enlargement that employs weights or tensioners – or simply the hands – to slowly stretch the penis. It’s gaining a resurgence of sorts, popping up more and more in popular culture.

So, how does jelqing work? Most commonly, jelqing works by slowly stretching the tip of the penis away from the base over time, causing muscle fibers inside the shaft to split into two, using the logic of bodybuilding and how muscles grow as they repair the damage from working out.

Does it work? NO. Think about it: if penises got bigger when you pulled them, we would all be packing 3 feet by the age of 18. Muscle repair theory is shaky science based on muscle damage and the penis is not a muscle. There are no muscles in the penis. None. Stop.


Penile enhancement pills are blends of naturally occurring herbs that are supposed to supplement blood flow to the penis. Often though, they contain all sorts of things. They’re not generally regulated and as such, there’s not much research into their safety or their side-effects. Just stay clear of them.

How Do Penis Pills Work? They don’t.

Are they Actually Effective? Nope.


What is it? One of a number of procedures designed to augment the size of the patient’s penis.

How Does it Work? There are a few different types of penis enlargement surgery based on different principles and on the desired outcome. One method is to transplant fatty tissues from elsewhere in the body into the shaft of the penis – this can be successful but is described as being “visually odd”, and the results often disappear within a year as the fat is metabolized. Another technique is to disconnect some supporting ligaments. Reports suggest that this can offer a few fractions of an inch in length, but leave the erection pointing down and not up.

Is It Actually Effective? There’s conflicting evidence about this, and it’s mainly anecdotal. Some reports suggest success, but more suggest permanent damage was incurred as a result of the procedure. The only major medical research body to give this topic any real consideration eventually decided that there was no evidence that the penis can be permanently enlarged, and that most men would not want to go ahead with the surgery if they knew the risks and dangers involved.

So, What Can I Do To Make My Penis Bigger?

Seriously? Haven’t you been reading this entire time? There’s no way to actually make your penis bigger. HOWEVER, there are ways you can make it appear bigger, like for instance:

Shave or trim your pubes. A little less foliage can make the trunk of the tree look bigger. This certainly isn’t some kind of well-known saying but it holds truth — some thoughtful shearing can definitely enhance how big your penis appears.

There’s also another way that makes you harder, longer and thicker by around 15-20% that doesn’t require stretching, surgery or pills; wear a cock ring like the popular TOR™ 2 penis ring. The size-enhancing effect of cock rings are simple and immediately effective: it works by restricting the blood flow in your penis, and provides a fuller appearance while worn.

Again, the effects are not permanent, but they’re real.

  1. when will you come out with a tor 3 / with a remote control even though the tor 2 is great its hard to adjust modes & speed while wearing

  2. Pill pump jelqing not working for me.

  3. Hashmi Dawakhana

    Very good article. It has been a pleasure reading it.

  4. It says penis don’t have muscles
    And I’m a medical student and i totally disagree with that statement

  5. Anu, the length of the penis depends on how big the erectile tissue will become. The muscles are irrelevant in this subject.

  6. Men are so silly when it comes to this subject. Being an attentive lover is so much more important than being able to sport a club between your legs.

  7. Men obsess about size, which is a factor – but health is also very important. More men need to use a first class penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to address issues like odor, dry/flaky skin, loss of sensation, member blood flow, etc.

  8. OMG I can’t believe

  9. Have you seen the video about the 45 year old German man that has enlarged his penis with silicone to the point where he can’t even have intercourse anymore? Crazy

  10. Yes we saw that! He didn’t seem to unhappy about it though: it was as though he was more interested in the process of body modification itself than in the end result. Maybe there’s some nobility in that!

  11. My penis is not quite 6″ erect, my wife says she is okay withthe length and girth, however, I findit difficult to experiment amd try different positions. If I could gain and extra inch or two, not necessarily girth, we could expand from the standard missionary and doggy style positions. I may try a penis pump after reading this article.


  12. Ever thought that most men have a good size but just want it larger? Mine has been said to be large and super fat. But I still want a larger one.

  13. I’m 8.5″ currently but we bought a pump that is 10″ in length. It came with a rubber sleeve around the opening but after a few uses that was ripped so now I use just the housing but bottom out in it. My wife has noticed the girth after using is a little more then she likes but overall it makes for some good fun.

  14. I’ve been using a pump for a year. My before measurement was 8-3/4″ erect x 6.2″ girth. After a year my erect length is now 9.5″ x 6.6″ girth. I’m very very happy with the results but ive had a few woman not able to handle certain positions. Some have loved it though so it depends I guess on what is preferred. I love the look on their face when we first start as I’m a athletic build but only 5′-10″ tall so having a 9.5″ penis starts a good conversation.

  15. I have a 6″and ya I would like to ad 2″if I could, I was just thinkingot getting a pump

  16. Seems to me that if you used the pump, eventually your blood vessels in your penis would have to stretch and increase in size, both flaccid and erect.

  17. i have to say Jelqing dose work. its not pulling on your penis what you do is cut off the circulation in your penis then force the blood to your tip by squeezing hard alot fucking harder than jacking. i take ahold of my penis like im trying to kill it. and i have to say ive grown in length and girth since ive started doing this

  18. Find justin thosoju on facebook her method work greats to make your penis bigger.

  19. I am 10.5 inches erect. But that’s when I first get aroused by her. After we start banging, I stretch to 11.5. She’s satisfied, to say the least. And so am I. 😉

  20. Shit jelqing work for me fr i gained 1 and half inches doing it

  21. Well, I’m pretty large and Women say how great it is. So, ya, when Women say “oh..it doesn’t matter” I call bullshit. And that doesn’t help out the guy that isn’t big.

  22. Well, you are right – no pills or pump can increase penis size. But the thing is that men still use them and do you know why? Because of a hype and a believe. It can be a Placebo Effect or a real thing but men do feel more confided in bed when they use male enhancement products and it looks kike this is what matters at the end of the day. The more confident a man is the better it performs naked.

  23. I’ve just recorded my first ‘significant’ growth, 1/4 of an inch after 2 1/2 weeks of PEing. Might not sound like much but I’ve ‘never’ been over 6 and a half. Last while PEing I got a hard-on and my cock measured in at 6 3/4. I couldn’t believe it! This stuff really works. I’m not going to measure for another 4 weeks

  24. Does pump really work?

  25. Jake, I dont think so, if it really worked, there would me much more buzz around it. With penis pump you are risking to make your erections softer after some time… I would use cocking, it cannot harm you
