Many men are desperate to increase their penis size. Studies show that, while 95% of men fall within a narrow average range, most men feel they are too small. Society creates strange links between the length of the manhood and a man’s character, along with his sexual abilities. For some men, anxiety around the size of the penis becomes an obsession, inhibiting sexual and therefore penile health.

It is perhaps no surprise, then, that the internet is flooded with advertisements in the form of webpages and Youtube videos devoted to products that promise to enlarge the penis. Creams, pills and strange contraptions are marketed on the basis of men’s unwarranted fears. Let’s take a look at some of the things men can expect from common enlargement methods.


Some guys turn to creams to fulfil their enlargement dreams. Many creams and oils tout natural ingredients, making them possibly (but not definitely) safe for the delicate male skin. And some of these creams contain nutrients that support penile health.

But no nutrient is going to make the penis bigger. A man may notice that his skin is softer when using a cream; depending on the nutrients, he may be supporting good blood flow to the member. If the cream contains chemicals or fragrances, he may notice irritation, tingling and/or burning.

What he won’t see is a bigger penis.


As noted above, there are nutrients that support penis health - particularly those that support good circulation. Blood flow into the penis is what creates strong erections, so anything that contributes to healthy circulation stands to benefit sexual health.

Pills may contain herbs and other nutrients that support penile health. As with creams, though, they will not make it bigger.

Another important thing to note is that supplements are not regulated. They may contain ingredients not listed on the package, and they may not contain some of the things they claim to. This means that taking a supplement is a gamble, particularly if the product doesn’t come from a reputable supplier. It’s possible for people to have negative reactions to supplements, so don’t think that natural always means safe.


Some people use stretching devices - either full contraptions or weights that hang off the penis - to increase length. It is possible that, after prolonged use of such devices, the penis may have slightly more length. However, this comes at the cost of girth, which is NOT a boon to sexual performance. Also, the devices can cause tearing of the tissues of the penis, something that is hardly worth the risk.


Some guys use penis pumps in hopes of enlarging their members. Pumps serve the purpose of forcing blood into the penis to create an erection. While this is great for many guys with erectile dysfunction, for the average man it is not recommended. Not only does using a pump not permanently increase size, but prolonged or frequent use can actually damage elastic tissue within the penis that is needed to have strong natural erections. On top of this serious drawback, pumps can cause pain, bruising and bleeding under the skin that creates little red dots all over the penis.

If a man wants to invest in a product for his penis, he would be better off going for something that promotes health, not size. Quality lubrications and condoms are worthy investments, as they protect the penis from infections and damage from chafing. Guys can also consider purchasing a penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to further protect against chafing. This product contains a combination of natural moisturizers (Shea butter and vitamin E) that promote optimal skin health. A man ought to love what he has and treat it well.
