penis-stretchingThere are a number of ways that penis stretching can be done, and each site you visit will likely tout a different method or product and it’s effectiveness.

Unfortunately, these sites are often more full of myths than they are facts.

Hand Stretching – Facts and Fiction

There are a number of penis stretching exercises that are supposed to be a “quick and easy” way to help you achieve a harder, longer-lasting erection, or a bigger penis.

Unfortunately, this method is simply completely ineffective.

When you think about it, this really isn’t surprising – if having a bigger penis was that easy, men all over the world would simply stay at home masturbating and pulling on their penis. Not only is this method of penis stretching completely ineffective, it can actually cause you to eventually completely lose your interest in having actual sex.

penis-pumpingPenis Pumps

A penis pump is a device that usually consists of a tube that is fitted over the penis and connected to a vacuum pump type of device, either a hand pump, plunger, or electric pump. The air pumping in and out of the tube supposedly increases blood flow to the penis, quickly providing you with longer, stronger erection. Not only is this not truly possible – it can actually be dangerous.

Over-pumping is a very common occurrence with penis pumps, and one of the leading causes of penis injury. If you overpump, you can cause the penis to fill with too much blood, bursting blood vessels and casing pain and injury. You’re not likely to want sex at all for quite some time after that, completely defeating the purpose of using the pump to begin with. At best, you may end up with a quite massive erection – that is not only painful, but very likely to subside as soon as you remove the pump.

This is one device that may actually work to improve the quality of your erection and lengthen your penis – but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t proceed with caution. Many extenders are very poor quality, producing no results at all. With the ones that do work and can prove that they are high-quality and medically approved, you still need to be very careful. Overextension of the penis can be extremely painful, putting you completely off sex for quite some time. If you do choose to use a penis extender, you can expect the process to take anywhere from six months to a full year before you achieve noticeable results.


On the surface, penis stretching seems like a quick and easy way to improve the quality of your erection and lengthen the penis. Chances are, you’ve probably read dozens of articles that make it sound as if penis stretching is an excellent, well-proven, painless and safe way to not only add inches, but achieve stronger, longer-lasting erections.
