Techniques

Here is a listing of various male enhancement techniques

 

Male Enhancement which is also referred to as penis enlargement are techniques or procedures to increase the girth, length, or hardness of the male penis.

There are a number of different techniques available for male enhancement, these include:

Surgery

There are several surgical treatments, all carrying a risk of significant complications. The most common procedure is division of the suspensory ligament. Those who advocate this procedure say that, at best, the unerect penis length increases by 2 cm.

Pills and supplements

Penis enlargement pills, patches, and ointments are available online and depending on the product users have noticed varying amounts of success.

Extenders

Extenders are devices which assist in elongating the penis by lengthing the ligament that attached the penis to the pubic bone.

Penis pump

penis pump is a cylinder that is fitted over the penis, with a manual or motorized pump to create suction. The apparatus creates a partialvacuum around the penis, engorging it as blood is drawn in. As vacuum increases, the difference between the inner blood pressure and the pump pressure increases as well; excessive vacuum causes vascular damage.

Penis pumps can be used to temporarily overcome symptoms of impotence, but do not cure the condition: a ring must be applied to maintain the erection which will otherwise immediately subside. Pumps may work even if there is nerve or vascular damage preventing a natural erection.

A flexible compression ring (or sometimes more than one), commonly called cock rings when used recreationally, must be used. It is fitted on the open end of the cylinder, then an erection is created by pumping. Then the ring is pushed by hand onto the base of the erect penis before releasing the vacuum. This restricts blood flow out of the now erect penis, enabling the erection to be held even in the presence of problems of the vascular or nervous system which would otherwise lead to immediate loss of erection. In the best circumstances erections can be maintained for a considerable time, but manufacturers’ literature recommends that, for safety, rings should be removed after no more than 30 minutes. Very prolonged use (hours) will cause permanent harm.

A personal lubricant of a type not harmful to the ring material is used, primarily to make a good seal at the base of the pump to prevent air leakage, in the same way that vacuum grease is used with a laboratory vacuum pump. It also makes it easier to slide the ring off the cylinder, and later to remove the ring.

Pumping must be done very carefully to avoid serious injury: over-enthusiastic pumping can burst blood vessels and form blisters. In some cases the testicles can be unexpectedly pulled into the cylinder, causing discomfort, pain, and possibly injury.It is also believed that the rim of the cylinder can cut into the skin and over time cause damage to the ligaments surrounding the penis. Impatiently pumping without reading explanatory material can produce too much suction (any pressure lower than 10 torr/1,333 Pa) and cause permanent and irreparable injury. Attempts at using vacuum cleaner units for this purpose have resulted in extremely severe injuries because the suction is far too powerful.

Pumps used with rings are virtually always effective, as they operate by a simple mechanical process, in cases of ED, even when pharmaceutical methods fail. They may nonetheless be found unsatisfactory due to the inconvenience and similar factors.

The effectiveness of penis pumps for permanent penis enlargement was examined by Kazem, Hosseini and Alizadeh. They studied 37 men with penis length less than 10 cm and found no significant change in penile length after using pumps for six months, although the follow-up have found 30% satisfaction with the method. The conclusion of the paper stated that vacuum treatment of the penis is not an effective method for penile elongation, but provides psychological satisfaction for some men.

A 31-patient study conducted by the Department of Urology at St Peter’s Hospitals and the Institute of Urology in London investigating the usefulness of pumps to correct the penile curvature associated with Peyronie’s disease found that “There was a clinically and statistically significant improvement in penile length, angle of curvature and pain after 12 weeks of using the vacuum pump“. In this study, subjects with Peyronie’s undertook two ten-minute pumping sessions per day for twelve weeks. The additional penis length of 0.5 cm average was an unexpected side effect found in approximately one third of the subjects and not an intended aim of the study. In the US, Penis pumps may be funded by Medicare, where a patient’s erectile dysfunction is deemed to necessitate this.

Clamping

Clamping is a risky and dangerous technique. The goal of clamping is to increase the growth of the penis. This enlargement technique uses a constricting device, such as a shoe string, cable clamp, or a tight cock ring. The device is firmly tied, clamped, or put, respectively, on the base of the erect penis while “edging” (extended masturbation) with a firmly erect penis. Use of a metal cock ring is not advised because trapped blood engorging the penis can make it impossible to remove without amputation or emergency intervention such as sawing the ring off. Clamping is considered extremely dangerous by both practitioners and the medical community as it can cause permanent catastrophic damage to the penis.

Hanging

Weight hanging consists of attaching a weighted device that grips the glans or just behind the glans and allows a weight to be suspended for a specific amount of time. Then, a conscious effort is made to exercise the penis by raising the weight.

Weight hanging, however, carries serious risks due to the restriction of blood flow to the glans. These include nerve damage, chronic pain, scarring and impotence. The idea behind weight hanging is to stretch various tissues of the penis.
