We've rounded up the most common methods that promise to improve male dignity and see if they actually work. Our experts help us in this regard: from psychologists to the Society of Urologists.
The most popular ways to increase masculinity are massage techniques: acupressure and a movement called jelqing. Popularizers of these techniques claim that a few months of daily training will help improve male dignity.
"None of the scientific studies have confirmed the therapeutic properties of massage techniques, " experts say. "They just improve the blood supply to the penis, which can make it a little bigger. But it's a very temporary phenomenon - within a few hours, the effect wears off.
Experts do not recommend such techniques, especially in those with diabetes, atherosclerosis, and congenital vascular abnormalities. When an erection does not go away even after ejaculation, various complications can occur, including priapism. This is an acute surgical pathology that is fraught with complete loss of organ function in the future.
Watch out, heavyweight!
Stretching promises to quickly increase a man's dignity to 3 cm: there are various weights attached directly to the penis, as well as special stretching devices.
"They really increase. But experts warn they can seriously injure the tunica albuginea of the corpus cavernosum. - As a result, Peyronie's disease can develop - scarring plaques form on the penis, which will lead to curving and erectile dysfunction. Pain during sex. And these consequences are irreversible.
There is an opinion that introducing testosterone and drugs that stimulate its production will add centimeters.
"This is a myth! Androgens affect sexual function, not size, experts explain. - In addition, the use of such drugs without consulting a doctor can disrupt the hormone chain: so-called testosterone pits can occur (often inobserved in bodybuilders taking unreasonably high doses of hormones). This is fraught with loss of sexual function, male infertility and problems with many body systems. "
Cream - a few hours
Penis enlargement creams flood the internet. They are easy to use and guarantee great results. This is bribing men who want to increase unit purchases.
"The money has absolutely no effect: it's like buying a cream to enlarge your arms or nose, " the expert assures. - The only thing this medication can provide is a slight noticeable (up to 1. 5 cm) increase over 5-6 hours. This happens because of its warming and vasodilatory effects.
Also, some creams may be "chemically contaminated": contain hormone supplements and dangerous allergenic ingredients. They cause common irritation and damage to mucous membranes, up to chemical burns.
The vacuum pump has been tested!
It involves negative pressure therapy. This is the only safety remedy that can be used at home!
"Combined with warm salve, the vacuum pump does increase (1-3cm) and thicken (up to 5mm) the penis and also improves erections. - But it's important to understand: if the patient is exercising regularly and living a full lifeSex life, it will achieve the effect. It is impossible to increase it once and for all with the help of a vacuum pump!
There is one more important note: you need to be careful to use it correctly so as not to damage the blood vessels and mucous membranes of the penis. Use independently only after consulting an andrologist.
Knife help, or surgery
With the help of surgical methods, an increase in masculinity is guaranteed. The least harmful is frenuloplasty, in which the penis is lengthened by 1. 5-2 cm. A more aggressive approach is to dissect the suprapubic region of the ligaments that fix the penis. Thickening (5-10mm) is widely used in the implantation of special implants, which can be used to make prostheses.
"But you need to understand that it's forever - it's impossible to get your size back. - Every method has drawbacks, so you need to weigh all the pros and cons. The surgical procedure should only be performed by a qualified doctor.
Contraindications to penis enlargement surgery include general disease, hormonal disorders, vascular disease, diabetes, and old age. But before resorting to surgery, it's worth seeing a psychiatrist. Because a man's size can be fine, but due to circumstances (for example, he's not satisfying his partner), there is a sudden desire to change something. But size doesn't matter! The most important thing for a man is to study his partner.
The whole problem lies in society and nature
The "more is better" stereotype comes from ancient times: in most peoples and cultures, the penis is considered a symbol of strength and fertility, and the bigger the better. Thus, the problem of dissatisfaction with size has a social character.
"The little boy doesn't care about size. Then comes the topic of sex for the first time - usually through watching porn. The young man associates his size with what he sees - the first seeds of self-doubt have been planted! Then add in anecdotes and stereotypes, and men start to get complicated, " explains the expert psychologist. However: Which penis is considered small and which is large? "In an erect adult, a penis smaller than 12 centimeters is a micropenis. The average size is 12-17 centimeters, and a penis over 18 centimeters is already considered very large, " the expert said, cautioning: In psychiatry, There is even a diagnosis for those who are dissatisfied with their size - "dyemorphic disorder" (similar to anorexia).
In general, try sexual tricks before increasing your masculinity. But most importantly, love sincerely. Then happiness is guaranteed!
