If you have read some of my articles, you would know that using a penis extender is one of the three methods that I recommend for increasing the length of your penis. But if you are new to the idea of natural penis enlargement, you might not be convinced.
Well, there is a study that was published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine that presented overwhelming evidence that point to the fact that using penis extenders daily for a period of time would increase your penis length permanently.
What Is A Penis Extender?
Penis extenders (also known as traction devices) are devices that apply a constant stretch on the penile tissues when worn on the penis so that after a period of regular use, the penis becomes longer and also thicker.
This device has a ring which grips the base of your penis and another that grips just below the penis head. In between these two rings are two bars that put tension which stretch the penis continually. It is this tension on the flaccid penis that encourages the penile tissues to increase in length.
The penis extender is a simple device that is easy to use. The bars that separate the two rings which act as grips can be adjusted to create more tension depending on how long you have been using the device.
Participants Of The Study On Penis Extenders
The study participants consisted of 23 men who had an average age of 26.5 years. These men were required to use only penis extender as a method of penis enlargement. All of the men in the study were seeking an increase in their penis length because they felt that they had a shorter than the average penis.
The men that were interested only in increasing their penis girth were not included in the study because the major aim of the study was on increasing penis length.
The medical histories of the participants were obtained so as to find out before hand if any of the participants had any penile disorders that could adversely affect the use of the penile extender and prevent any progress in their penis lengthening.
The Method Used In The Penis Extender Study
The men that partook in the penile extender study were required to wear the device and they followed these instructions:
1.) For the first 2 weeks, the men wore the penis extender for 4 – 6 hours every day. And they increased the length of the penis extender (by adjusting the bars) by 0.5 centimetres after every 5 days.
2.) At the start of the 3rd week to the end of the 8th week, the men wore the device every day for 9 hours. And they increased the length of the penis extender (by adjusting the bars) by 0.5 centimetres after every 2 weeks.
3.) Between the 9th week and 12th week, the men kept wearing the penile extender on a daily basis for 9 hours. And they increased the length of the penis extender (by adjusting the bars) by 0.5 centimetres after every 2 weeks.
The men that participate in the study received follow ups at the end of the 4th week and 12th week of wearing the penis extender as a method of penile lengthening.
When the researches met with each participant of the study, they measured the length and circumference of their penises – it was done by the same physician so that the measurement readings would be constant. The researchers measured the flaccid length and the stretched length, circumference of the penis shaft (middle) and glans (penis head).
The Study Results Revealed Penile Length Increase
The study results revealed that the men experience an increase in both the stretched and flaccid length of their penis by using a penis extender as instructed by the researchers. The study results for the flaccid penile length are:
- Average flaccid penis length of the participants at the start of the study – 8.8 centimetres
- Average flaccid penis length of the participants after 4 weeks of using a penis extender – 10.1 centimetres
- Average flaccid penis length of the participants after 12 weeks of using a penis extender – 10.5 centimetres
In order words, participants of the study had an average increase of 1.7 centimetres in flaccid penis length after 12 weeks of using the penis extender that they were given.
The researchers also found out similar results for increase in stretched penis length after the participants made use of penile extender as a method of penis lengthening. The study results for the stretched penis length are:
- Average stretched penis length of the participants at the start of the study – 11.5 centimetres
- Average stretched penis length of the participants after 4 weeks of using a penis extender – 12.4 centimetres
- Average stretched penis length of the participants after 12 weeks of using a penis extender – 13.2 centimetres
Similar to the flaccid penis increase, the participants of the study had an average increase of 1.7 centimetres in stretched penis length after 12 weeks of using the penis extender that they were given.
The participants did not get any significant increase in the girth of their penis. But, they had a small average increase of 0.5 centimetres in the girth of their penis head (glans) after 12 weeks of using the penis extender on a daily basis.
The study is scientific proof for what I have know for a very long time now – penis extender can make your penis longer but it would do little in increase your penis thickness. The device was designed specifically to give men a longer penis and NOT a thicker penis.
If you want a thicker penis by using penis devices then you would have to use a water-assisted penis pumps.
The problem with penis extenders and water-assisted penis pumps is that they are expensive for the average Nigerian man to afford. A quality penis extender (or water-assisted penis pump) costs around $320 to ship it to Nigeria.
This is why I recommend that men should always start with penis exercises first. These dedicated exercises can help you increase both the length and girth of your penis while also increasing the strength of your erections.
The only downside is that it is not as effortless as penis extender that you wear and forget it. You would need to do these exercises for 20 – 30 minutes for 3 or 4 times a week. However, you start seeing results after 4 weeks so you would know that it is working and be motivated to keep doing it.
