If you've perused the PEGym member forums, looking for penis enlargement exercises, chances are you've happened upon several of our members who've had positive results using penile extenders as part of their penis enlargement routine. However, if you're new to penis exercises, you still may be a bit skeptical. Now, The Journal of Sexual Medicine has released study findings giving scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of penile extenders in increasing penis length, as a form of penis enlargement exercise.
What Are Penile/Penis Enlargement Extenders
Penis extenders are a type of traction device used for penis enlargement exercises. Most devices consist of a ring that goes around your penis and sits flush against your body and a fastening device that goes around your penis, right before the glans. Bars separating the two fastening points can be lengthened to put tension on the penis, stretching it, while in a flaccid state, promoting penis enlargement. The penis extender is one of the most straight-forward penis exercise tools.
The Penile Extender Study Participants
Twenty-three men, with a mean age of 26.5 years of age, entered into the study concerning penis extenders and penis enlargement exercises. All of the patients complained of having a short penis. Patients seeking girth only penis enhancement were excluded, as the study focus was primarily on length improvements. Medical histories were taken, to ensure there were no anatomic penile disorders that would negatively affect the use of the penis extender and progress with the penis enlargement exercises.
The Penile Extender Study Method
The subjects participating in the penis enlargement exercise study were asked to wear the penis extender per the following protocol:
- During the first 2 weeks, participants wore the device daily for 4 to 6 hours per day, and increased the length of the penile extender a 1/2 cm every 5 days.
- From the beginning of the 3rd week to the end of the 2nd month, participants wore the penis extender daily for 9 hours a day, increasing the length a 1/2 cm every 2 weeks.
- During the 3rd month, the participants continued to wear the penile extender for 9 hours a day, increasing the length a 1/2 cm every 2 weeks.
Study participants were followed up with at the end of the first and the third months of wearing the penis extender as a form of penis enlargement exercise. During each visit, penis length and circumference were measured by the same physician, to help ensure measurements were taken consistently. Measurements were taken for both flaccid and stretched length numbers, proximal girth, and circumference of the glans.
Penile Extender Study Results Show Penis Enlargement
Positive penis enlargement results were found concerning both increases in flaccid and stretched penis length, with the use of the penile extender, as a form of penis exercise. The results were as follows for flaccid penis length:
- Starting mean penile flaccid length for participants – 8.8 cm
- End of the 1st month mean penile flaccid length – 10.1 cm
- End of the 3rd month mean penile flaccid length – 10.5 cm
This showed an average increase of 1.7 cm in flaccid length by the end of the third month.
Similar results were found for stretched length increases, for using a penis extender for penis enlargement exercises. The results were as follows for stretched penis length:
- Starting mean penile stretched length for participants – 11.5 cm
- End of the 1st month mean penile stretched length – 12.4 cm
- End of the 3rd month mean penile stretched length – 13.2 cm
This showed an average increase of 1.7 cm stretched length by the end of the third month as well, of use of the penis extender for penis enlargement exercise.
There were no significant improvements found in penile girth. However, the circumference of the glans did show an average increase of 1/2 cm between the first and the third month, from using a penile extender.
