Penis extenders sound a lot more promising than penis enhancement surgery, right? You wear a device, keep wearing it for a few months, and then at the end of it, you have permanent results. It sounds too good to be true for a lot of people.
But do penis stretchers really deliver lasting results?
Can you really have a longer, thicker penis without going through a horrifying surgery? Yes.
Effectiveness varies, and the type of technology used in the penis extender matters, too. The best penis extender may promise 2″ of growth or more, but everyone is different. The science is solid, and there’s a very high chance you’ll see results.
And if you don’t see any results, a lot of the manufacturers will offer you your money back.
It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved. You have the potential to make your penis bigger. The manufacturer has the potential to make a lot of money, and in the end, everyone is happy (hopefully).
But if you want to know if a penis extender really works, you need to have a complete understanding of the technology behind these products. I am going to get you up to speed so that you know exactly what to look for in a penis extender and how these products work on a technical level.
You’ll know more about penis extenders than most salesmen.
How Effective Are Penis Stretchers?
Effectiveness varies from person-to-person. I know a lot of users get upset when they first start using their extenders because they don’t see results now. You need to give one of these extenders a long time before judging how effective it is.
You need to be in it for the long-term.
If you’re not the type of person that has patience, you might as well just save your money.
You see, and you’ll understand why after reading the next section, but you need to use a penis extender over 12 – 24 weeks to see lasting results. A lot of people will start to see minor results after a few weeks, but long-lasting results, the type of results I think all of us men want, are going to take time.
The general rule of thumb is that:
- Users gain 0.7″ in 4 months
But there are people with 2.5″ gains, so it all depends on the person. You can expect to reach nearly an inch in penile length gained. That’s pretty impressive.
And you need to think of it this way.
Penis extenders have virtually no risk when used correctly. When you use an extender, there is virtually nothing that can go wrong aside from human error.
You never have to worry about:
- Losing erection quality
- Damaging nerves
- Turning black and blue
None of that happens with extenders; this can happen with pumps or surgery. Some users will gain 25% in size, so that means the average 5″ penis would be 6.25″ after using an extender for just four to six months.
That’s darn impressive.
The routine that you follow will have a major impact on the effectiveness of these devices. I will go into great detail on how to use a penis extender near the end of this article. But let’s just say that you can’t use an extender for just an hour every other day and see real results.
This is a scientific process, and it takes a lot of time and work (yes, I said it: work) for it to be fruitful.
I don’t know about you, but I can commit to using one of these devices daily, for six hours or so, to have lifelong results.
Again, effectiveness will depend on the person, but generally, you can expect to gain 0.7″ or more in penile length. You’ll also experience massive girth gains. Girth is the thickness of your penis, and a lot of women claim that they prefer a man with a bigger girth than longer length.
So, you’ll be hitting her or him with a double whammy: longer rod and thicker shaft.
Extenders are more than just about length and width, too. These devices offer a plethora of other benefits, including:
- Long-lasting erections in the bedroom
- Firmer, harder erection quality
- Longer, thicker penis
- Confidence in the bedroom
You see, you’ll have the confidence to be an animal in the bedroom. This, for me, is a major selling point of the penis extender. If you have confidence, sex becomes a whole lot more fun. You’ll know that you can force your partner to an orgasm at near-will.
It’s a great feeling to actually feel adequate and not worry that your penis is too small for your partner.
There’s never a reason to worry about your penis size again, and it’s all a result of penis stretching. Don’t get me wrong, you won’t be able to see these results through stretching your penis by hand.
You really need an extender since you need to use this form of penis enlargement for hours per day.
But don’t let that intimidate you at all. Penis extenders, especially the ones I recommend, are all about comfort these days. A lot of them can be worn under your pants so that you can go about your day without worrying that someone will see you trying to make your member bigger.
So, how does this whole stretching thing lead to growth?
How Does Stretching the Penis Help Growth?
Penis growth occurs because of stretching, or what’s better known as tension. I will explain tension in a few minutes, but it’s important to know what this whole concept of stretching is all about.
When you use an extender, you’ll extend your penis through stretching.
What the entire penis extender industry is based on is extension. You put the device on, apply traction, and keep the device on for an extended period of time. Eventually, the body learns to adapt and adjust to the tension applied to the penis.
What is Penis Traction?
Penis traction is more of an industry term than anything else. The traction principle is simple: keep the body part stretched for a long time, and see results. Your body has an amazing ability to heal and adapt.
I think this is something that we can all agree on.
Traction works through cell hyperplasia. This is a concept you may have heard about before. You know how the cells in your body will split and duplicate? Well, the idea is that through penis traction, you can make this happen.
Most penis extenders will utilize penile traction to extend your penis.
So, you put the device on, slide your penis in and adjust the traction level to stretch your penis slowly over the course of months.
On a scientific level, you’ll be:
- Causing small micro tears
- Causing cell hyperplasia to occur
- Splitting your cells
- Dividing your cells
- Increasing the number of penis tissue cells
And as you can imagine, this is a lengthy process. Cell division takes some time, and you need to divide a lot of cells if you hope to add several inches of girth and length to your penis.
Think of this much like lifting weights.
You won’t see results from going to the gym once a month no matter how happy you feel about it. Your body can’t do much in just one month, but give it time, and you’ll be shocked by just how much a penis extender can do for you.
Cell division is a great way to extend your penis because it’s natural.
Pills and other forms of “extension” are not natural at all. Your body has used cell division before, and there are no nasty side effects or anything to worry about.
You just have to stay the course to really benefit from this process.
Cell division is the same process that was used to grow your penis as a child and early teen. It’s part of the natural growth cycle.
After puberty, your body stops the cell division process of the penis tissue.
Hormones were responsible for the original growth of your penis because these hormones trigger the cell division process. Your body won’t start making these hormones again, and if you take a pill to trigger the process, you’re putting yourself in the cross hairs of some pretty nasty side effects.
Traction is what years of research and development has found to trigger your penis’ cell division.
Penis Extender Methods of Traction
Traction is something that manufacturers have been working on for years. Everyone wants to stand out from the competition, so they’re always working on the next “breakthrough” to make a penis bigger.
And for all of this time, really only two methods have been introduced.
It’s a rather simplistic concept, but it’s a concept that works. I don’t expect many other forms of traction to develop any time soon, so the types listed below are what you can expect from the industry for quite some time.
- Rod Extenders
- Noose is used to hold the penis head
- Rods are used to adjust the unit
Spring systems are also an integral part of the rod extender design. The rods or spring system allow you to apply difference levels of force to the penis. “Force” is not a bad thing. Essentially, force is a slight stretch of the penis that is used to force the cell division process to occur.
You’ll adjust the rods, which will extend the device slightly.
You’ll want to have your penis inside of the traction device with your glans under the noose. You’ll tighten the noose to hold it down and stretch the penis.
It’s a rather easy process, so don’t let the sound of it intimidate you.
- Pulling Extenders
Another form of extender is the pulling extender. These extenders are starting to become a popular option, but it’s really up to you to determine what type of extender you prefer. For the most part, both types of extenders will work well.
Pulling extenders work in much the same way that they sound: they pull to create traction.
You’ll attach the extender to the top of your penile shaft, and a belt will be used to anchor the device to the base of the penis.
Pulling extenders sound like they would hurt, but they’re rather comfortable. In fact, the Phallosan Forte is now our #1 choice for real results because it is the most comfortable device which makes it much easier to wear daily.
You’ll also be able to enjoy one benefit that a lot of men seem to overlook: you can wear a pulling extender under your clothes.
It’s very difficult to see one of these extenders under your clothes.
So, you can wear them to work, when you’re at the store, or in the car. You don’t need to sit home for six hours a day to experience positive penis growth.
Again, I like both types of extenders, and I recommend that you give either type a try for yourself. The goal is to find a device that is comfortable. A general rule of thumb is that if an extender isn’t comfortable enough to wear it for several hours a day, you’ll likely not wear it often.
But you need to wear the extender daily.
If you don’t think that you can commit to wearing an extender daily, you might as well give up now and start getting comfortable with your penis size.
In fact, I am going to make it as easy as possible for you and provide you with a complete routine geared towards wearing and using a penis extender.
How to Choose the Best Penis Extender
You’ll find a lot of penis extenders on the market – some good, some bad.
Extenders are a hot product, and when trying to choose between models that look the same, function the same and offer near identical results, it’s difficult to settle on just one model.
A few points that will help to make your selection easier are:
- Visibility. If you plan to bring your extender with you outside of the home, it’s not something you want the world to see. A lot of men forget this one little fact, and they’re forced to wear their extenders at night or when they come home from work. You definitely want to see if you can conceal the extender unless you want to wear the extender exclusively at home. Most extenders will boast about their concealment if it’s offered.
- Guarantee. You might as well safeguard your investment with a guarantee. A lot of companies are offering some form of a guarantee on their extenders, and this allows you to return the device if it doesn’t work for you. Make sure to read the fine print to see what is required of you if you plan to return the device. Some companies even require you to journal your experience and take pictures.
- Fit. The fit is the most important thing. Extenders can slide off, which is very uncomfortable. You’ll also want to make sure that there is some form of a comfort system in place. A comfort system allows you to wear your extender for an extended period of time without feeling any pain or discomfort along the way.
Read reviews and see what other people are saying about an extender before you buy one. It’s an expense that you want to benefit you in the long-term rather than just burn a hole through your wallet.
How to Use a Penis Extender
You need to be dedicated and follow a routine if you plan on using a penis extender. Even the best penis extender won’t do you any good if you’re not consistent. I am going to make this as simple as possible:
- Wear your device 3 – 6 hours a day; the more, the better.
- Start wearing the device for 2 – 3 hours a day for the first week or two if you’re getting used to the way it feels.
- Apply just enough force to get a good stretch, but don’t go crazy with the level of tension.
- Clean your penis extender often to remove dead skin cells and make sure that it’s sanitary. Your instruction manual will have a cleaning routine to follow.
These are just a few of the basic steps that will help guide you along your routine. Remember to read the unit’s instruction manual and listen to the manufacturer’s advice. You need to wear this device for quite a long time, so a few ideas are:
- Start your day wearing the device. Make sure to go to the bathroom first and shower.
- Wear the device until lunch and then take it off.
If you follow this routine, you should get in at least four good hours of penis traction per day. It’s really that simple.
Anyone wanting an even more intense routine can choose to just take off the extender at lunch to give yourself a break. You’ll then put it back on and wear it until you get home.
Why do I recommend this routine?
It’s the easiest one to follow.
I know once I get home, I want to do anything else but worry about my penis extender. You might even have a lady or male friend coming over, and the last thing you want to do is ask him or her to hold on while you take off your extender.
Nope, it’s not something that most people will find attractive.
If you wear the device all day long, you can come home, take it off, and forget about it. Wearing it during work, as long as it isn’t noticeable, really seems to work the best. I find that I can commit to this sort of routine with greater ease than any other routine.
What to Expect When Wearing a Penis Extender
I’m afraid to put any form of an extender on my penis for the first time. A question that a lot of people ask – I did, too – is: how does it feel? The force on the penis is light, and unless you go overboard, you should just feel a light pulling sensation.
This is akin to a very light stretch.
Some men say that the stretch feels good to them, but I am indifferent. It doesn’t hurt, and it doesn’t feel good to me either.
The longer you use the device, the more discomfort you’ll feel in your:
And this is why I recommend starting off slow with your extender session.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Yes, you will notice that the tension level you started with isn’t providing a stretch any longer. Push yourself to apply more tension at this point.
The goal is to apply tension to the penis at all times.
When that tension and stretching sensation is gone, you need to put the tension level higher so that you can see results. It’s that simple.
Now, if your penis is hurting or you experience any pain, listen to your body.
I’ve never personally felt pain, but if I did, I know I wouldn’t take a chance potentially hurting my penis. Take the extender off, massage your penis and call it a day at this point. There will be plenty of other days where you can use your penis extender and hopefully see positive results.
I’m not going to say that you don’t have any concerns with a penis extender because that’s simply not true. Penis extenders are extremely safe, and there are really only two main ways that you can hurt yourself:
- Time. If you wear your extender for 8 hours or more a day, you may hurt yourself. Keep your wear to 8 hours or less if you want to make sure that you’re not injuring your penis.
- Traction. You can’t go balls to the wall immediately with traction. Optimal traction keeps your flaccid penis in extension and pulls it slightly further. Any more than this and you’re asking for trouble.
You will want to look through your instruction manual and make sure that you’re following all of the instructions 100%. If you follow the instructions, you should be fine to wear your penis extender and start seeing some positive gains.
Speaking of gains.
When Can You Expect to See Size Gains?
Your efforts aren’t for nothing. You want a thicker, longer penis, and if you’re not going to achieve that, you might as well put your energy into something else. Little by little, you’ll start to see results.
I actually recommend measuring yourself before your first time using a penis extender so that you have a base measurement to follow.
You will have gains the first time you use your extender, but the gains are so small that you won’t be able to measure them or see them with any form of accuracy. Many users state that they really start seeing gains after two weeks.
Again, these are small gains, but these small gains add up. By the fourth month, you’ll have significant penile gains that are easily noticeable with the naked eye.
Measure yourself monthly, keep track of your gains, and use these small gains to motivate you to keep going with your routine. You’ll be surprised by how much you gain in such a little amount of time.
A cool 0.7″ makes a huge difference in the bedroom.
You’re likely to achieve results that even surpass this amount, so it’s going to be an entirely new experience in the bedroom.
The neat thing is that you can use any recommended extender and start seeing results. Yes, some extenders are more expensive and offer a higher level of comfort, and I highly recommend these penis extenders for long-term use.
But it’s often worth spending a little more for a device that is comfortable and doesn’t make you hate every minute of the penis extension process.
