Average Penis Size and Penis Enlargement


The desire for penis enlargement is common in many men who wish they had a little more than what they were born with. This is especially true of men that are average in size or lower. After finding out the average penis size, then realizing that their own penis is not quite as big as they would like it to be, men often become discouraged. This can lead to a lack of confidence, reduced ego and can have a dramatic impact on the sex life and personal relationships of a man. This is what causes many men to seek ways of enlarging their penis. So what is an average penis size.

Statistics show that the average penis size for most men is about 6 inches. However, this stat can be a little misleading due to the variance in size across the entire male population. In actuality penises range in size from very large to very small and everywhere in between. A more appropriate standard for comparison would be to say that the majority of men have a penis that is between 5 to 7 inches (13 to 16 cms) in length with a girth of about 4 inches (10 cms). For those men at the lower end of that spectrum (or even lower than that), the desire to find the best penis enlargement techniques can be a very serious pursuit.

Once a man understands the average size of a penis, compares that with his own size, the next step is usually wondering if it's possible to make it bigger. With that in mind, let's explore some of the penis enlargement options that are currently available. We will also provide some tips about the positive and negatives aspects of the most common forms of penis enlargement and reveal why most men want to have a penis that is bigger than the average size.

The Surgery Method

This is probably the first method men think of when considering their penis enlargement options for the first time. With modern medicine being so advanced, it's logical to think that there must be some sort of medical procedure that can increase the size of the penis. However, that isn't exactly the case. Surgical procedures for penis enlargement are available, however this type of surgery is very expensive, the results are not guaranteed and its the most risky way to increase the size of the penis. Although it can be effective, the potential for negative side effects are quite significant (as is the case with any surgery). This is especially true for any surgical procedures performed on the penis due to the complex and delicate nature of the penis anatomy. Some of the possible side effects include scaring, urinary dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, and even impotence. For these reasons, surgery is generally not recommended for penis enlargement.

The Magic Pills

This is probably the most widely available form of penis enlargement you will find. Many companies sell different formulas and combinations of herbs and compounds that they claim can be used for penis enlargement. But do these pills deliver any results? Well essentially no. There is no medical evidence that this type of treatment produces any meaningful or lasting increase in penis size. Although you may see some results from taking these pills, such as harder and longer lasting erections. The effects tend to last no more than a couple of days. good money from this type of treatment when it comes to penis enlargement. However there is one caveat to this method. The herbal supplements in some penis enlargement pills can promote penile health and improve the sexual functions of the penis. This can help promote penis growth when used along with other penis enlargement methods.

Penis Pumps

Penis pumps have been around for a while. Although the penis pump has changed slightly over the years, it is still a relatively simple device that operates on a basic principle. An air tight container is placed over the penis, then air is removed from the container by vacuum force. This forces blood into the penis forming an erection. As the vacuum is continuously applied, the penis expands beyond it's usual limits causing the tissues of the penis to stretch and expand beyond it's current size. As a result, penis enlargement occurs. The penis pump can be effective, but the benefits are only temporary when it is only used for a short period of time. When used continuously over time, the benefits can become permanent. However, there is some risk in using the penis pump. Excessive pressure on the penis from too much vacuum force can sometimes lead to circulation problems resulting in erectile dysfunction and even impotence. So the penis pump should be used with caution.

Manual Exercise

One of the most natural forms of penis enlargement is manual stimulation through a process called jelqing or through other similar stretching exercises. The jelq involves a specific daily regimen of physical exercises performed on the penis with your hands. Same with the stretching exercises. The principle behind this method is that by applying tension or pressure to the penis consistently over time, the tissues of the penis naturally respond to the forces applied to it with cell division, thus creating more tissue and a bigger penis. However, gains can be slow to materialize. Still this is the safest and most natural way to increase the size of your penis. The only real downside to this approach is that it is time consuming and it can take many weeks or even months before you see any substantial results. But as long as you are prepared to consistently perform the exercises every day and you have patience, this can be a very effective and safe way to increase the size of your penis over time.

Extender Devices

One of the more recent innovations in penis enlargement technology is the penis extender device. Similar to the penis pumps or manual exercises, the principle behind this device is to apply consistent tension to the penis in order to encourage cellular division which results in increased penis size. This is essentially the exact same approach as the stretching exercises except with this device you don't need your hands. The device does all the pulling. This is beneficial since the hands can quickly fatigue from stretching the penis and the longer you stretch the penis, the more cellular division occurs. However, like with the penis pumps, any time you use any sort of mechanism on the penis, some caution is advised since too much pressure on the penis can be damaging. This method also take time to be effective, but the results are permanent. That said, this is probably the best available option for penis enlargement in terms of effectiveness, safety, cost and time invested.


Although surgery does have a bit of a track record of successful penis enlargement, expense involved and the risk of potential side effects from surgery make it a seldom used option for male enhancement. Using pills isn't a sure way to enlarge your penis by itself. However, the beneficial effects of these herbal supplements can be a valuable part of other, more effective penis enlargement methods. And although the penis pump is somewhat ineffective (and even hazardous), I think it too can play an auxiliary role to other methods. My advice would be to primarily utilize the more natural and effective penis enlargement methods. Use the manual exercise approach or the extender device, or even some combination of both, to increase your penis size. Then incorporate the penis pump and herbal supplements into your routine on a more secondary basis to further promote penile function and circulation. Just simply use caution and common sense with the penis pump. If it hurts or doesn't look right, don't do it.

Although it takes time and dedication, this is a small price to pay for permanent results that are achieved safely.
