Guys have been trying to get their penis bigger for several decades now. Penis enlargement has even been dated back to tribes who used exercises to enlarge their penis. Then came a variety of pills which promised larger size, yet rarely delivered. Contraptions like penis pumps made their way into the game, yet most guys were more freaked out on the potential dangers of using pumping or stretching devices on the penis.
So what’s new in penis enlargement? Here we are, well into the future from when enlargement techniques started, what are the latest advances, if any?
Penis pills continue to be present in the market, and still with high claims of large size gains. Have they improved at all?
Well, yes and no.
Back in the day, pills were nothing more than useless herbs, filler ingredient, and even sometimes harmful ingredients. At best, they relied on the placebo effect, or the hope that the user would “believe” his size was increasing.
Today pills have actually improved. There are pills now days that include effective herbs which can increase blood flow to the penis. This creates larger size and improved hardness, leading to stronger erections.
While this may sound impressive, the gains unfortunately are only temporary. Many of the commercial claims regarding size are actual more legit in that guys are experiencing some size increases. But, as said, this is not the permanent size increases most guys are interested in. They are temporary and don’t translate into larger size gains when the pills are discontinued.
What about penis pumps? Illustrations of these contraptions from the past look downright scary. Yet they have continued to remain somewhat popular throughout the years.
Now days pumps have actually improved, both in safety and potential effectiveness. Now there are water based pumps. These use water to create more secure pressure. They are much easier to use, and gains can be seen quickly (yet these initial gains are only temporary).
As for permanent gains, guys have reported gaining size with water based pumps. It is still bit of a gray area as pumps still draw in guys who are hungry to get bigger, but then are hesitant to continue using pumps for extended periods of time due to safety fears. This is still the case even with the newer brand pumps, so results remain in that gray area.
What’s new with penis exercises? We mentioned that tribes were famous for employing exercises to develop larger size. Are there any current day exercise routines that have improved on the older methods?
Yes and no. It still remains that “jelqing” is the most popular when it comes to penis exercises (jelqing is the method said to be used by the previous mentioned tribes).
However, jelqing has come a long way. Traditionally jelqs were performed by making a circle with one hand (joining the thumb and forefinger together) and starting at the base, one would massage forward to just before the head. This was then repeated with the other hand for a certain number of sets and reps.
Now days there are many different variations on the exercise. There is jelqing for girth, for guys only wanting to get thicker, there are stretching employed jelqs focusing more on length, and there are new techniques to accomplish both.
Positive jelqing results continue to be reported, yet now guys are doing much shorter routines, while adding in additional exercises for improved results and quicker progress.
Supplementation has also been implemented with jelqing. These aren’t the same as penis pills, but rather supplements which naturally increase hormones and/or testosterone creating the perfect environment for growth to occur when exercises are performed.
