Using weights to make your pecker bigger is one of the oldest penis enlargement practices in the world. Heck, the Pharaohs in Ancient Egypt apparently tied weights to their member in the hopes it would add size. This method was also used by African tribes 2,000 years ago. Yep, since the dawn of time men have tried to make their members bigger.
Using weights on your Johnson is not like pumping iron at the gym. The penis is not a muscle and this practice does not involve lifting the weight. Rather the weights are used to stretch the tunica albuginea and other tissues of the penis, making it hang better and allowing more blood to flow when engorged. A device made of rope or a strap is attached to the penis gland and weights are attached. The weights range from 1/16 pound to the heaviest which are usually 1/4 pound or more. The weights are not cheap and retail for around $1,000.
According to tests carried out by penile weights manufacturers (if you can believe they’re impartial) men wearing penile weights 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for 4 ½ months gained 1.25 inches in length. Using weights on the penis will not increase the girth of the penis. In fact it may actually reduce it. Using weights can also be extremely dangerous and can actually cause more harm than good, such as nerve damage, chronic pain, and impotence.

Jelqing is a form of penis massage that folklore has it originated in the Middle East and resulted in men “growing” their penis up to 20 inches. Now this is most likely fairy dust and the only scientific evidence that it works consist of a bunch on guys on the Internet who swear by it. The method apparently increases penis length and girth by forcing more blood into the corpora cavernosa, which is the spongy tissue that makes up the penis.
The exercise is strange and seems more like a half-hearted attempt at masturbation. The first step of the exercise is to apply a hot compress to your crotch. Once you've sufficiently warmed up the area, begin by making an OK sign with your hand. Then apply lubricant to your semi-erect penis. For some reason, under no circumstances should you jelq a fully erect penis. Then proceed to “milk” the penis by grasping it at the base near the pubic bone and moving in an upward direction to the base of the penis head. Do not jelq the penis head. The exercise should be performed 100 – 200 times a day.
Scientifically the effects of this exercise are unknown, though one study is routinely touted online. It was apparently conducted by a Dr. Brian Richards and published in the British Journal of Sexual Medicine, though the article is suspiciously missing from journal’s website. The study, apparently conducted in the 1970s, found that jelqing increased the penis size of 87 percent of the men participating in the study, with each gaining an average of 1.4 inches in length and up to one inch in girth.
3. Use a Penis Extender
A penis extender may resemble a medieval torture device, but it’s actually a medical apparatus that’s attached to the penis and stretches it. It keeps the penis in a constant state of traction. This supposedly causes cells in the penis to divide and expand. It’s suggested the device be worn daily for five to eight hours for a minimum of six months.
Some research shows that this method actually works. A study conducted at the University of Turin and published in 2009 in the British Journal of Urology showed that men gained about an inch of penis length over a six month period using a penis extender. It should be noted that the male candidates involved in the study all had below average penile dimensions. It is not scientifically known whether the method produces a similar result for average-sized men.

Having your penis surgically enhanced is a drastic but increasingly common procedure. It is also the only measure to make your member permanently larger. There are two types of surgeries men can have performed, one to make the penis longer and the other to increase girth.
The penis is made longer by cutting a ligament that holds the penis to the pubic bone and utilizing man’s “hidden penis.” It is said that one-third to one-half of the penis exists inside the body. This procedure can add one to two inches. Increasing the girth of the penis is a little more complicated. The girth procedure involves injecting skin tissue into the penis. This course of action can increase girth by staggering thirty to fifty percent.
According to Philadelphia’s Dr. Mark Solomon the surgery costs roughly $6,000 a procedure. He should know. Philadelphia is reportedly the penis enlargement surgery capital of the world.

For guys, shaving “down there” is still somewhat of a taboo. While society deems it perfectly okay for women to go completely bald, men feel they need to encase their member in a bushy forest. Apparently only 15 percent of men admit to pruning their pubes. Guys have the choice of either manscaping or going the porn star route by removing all hair. By clipping the hedges you can make your member look one to two inches longer.
There’s an added advantage to manscaping-- it will also make sex feel better. By removing the extra padding you’ll help expose the sensitive skin around the base of your shaft which will help heighten sexual intercourse. Also it’s highly likely that your partner will like your cleaner, smoother, and better smelling heat-seeking love missile—and we all know what that means.
If you are going for a close shave or taking it all off, be sure to apply a soothing cream afterwards to avoid pimples and itches. After all, you don’t want your partner thinking you have an STD.
If after all this you’re still worried about what’s between your legs, the real problem probably exists between your ears.
