Historical Perspective of Penis Stretching

ancient-buildingConsidered as the most natural of all methods of penis ,  through stretching or traction-based devices such as extenders is actually not so new. While the invention of modern hi-tech extenders is quite new, the concept is not. In fact, the principle of stretching or traction has been successfully used for thousands of years in different regions of the world to enlarge various body parts including neck, arms, legs and, of course, penis.

Historically, several tribes have used weights and other instruments to stretch body parts, whether it be lips, ears and even the penis. Many cultures and tribal societies have pursued penis  in one form or another over the centuries. Anthropologist Margaret Mead reported Polynesian males stretching their penises using a woven sleeve made of plant fiber similar to a Chinese finger trap. The penis was inserted into one end and a rock or other heavy object was hung from the other end. Archeological surveys have also revealed cave drawings that date all the way back to 440 BC. Many of these cave drawings show men (normally kings) with large penises.


Like in many other cultures, penis and sexual potency has always been used as the symbol of male virility and masculinity in ancient Arabs. Ancient Arab fiction tales of explicitly describe various sexual encounters and the resulting male sexual dominance because of their genitalia size and power. The famous well-known penis- technique of “Jelqing” is thought to be originated from Arab culture. In the late 70's Dr. Brian Richards, carried some detailed studies on the effectiveness of the Arabic Jelq and his research was published also by the British Journal of Sexual Medicine and showed extremely positive results for 87% of the test group. However, the overall penis growth was not very significant and also took a lot of time. Many sexperts today, therefore, advocate the “combined” use of penis stretching exercises along with the penis extenders to get the maximum results in the shortest possible time.


The practice of penis  through extension / traction has been widely used in Africa and South America by tribe members who have done lip and ear stretching for purely their own culture. This practice has been still going on throughout the centuries. In certain tribes of Africa, women have used this practice often. One can still see pictures of Aferican women whose necks have been stretched, enlarged and elongated and they wear the gold rings around their necks. This practice and tradition starts when the girls are just 6 years old and the process takes a long time. Most women stop the process by the time they reach 20 years old.

Similarly, the women from the Mursi Tribe residing in the Omo Valley in Southern Ethiopia wear certain traditional lip disks. The disks are worn as a reminder of a woman’s status.  If the disk is large enough, it shows sexual maturity and social status. Sometimes, this lip disk is also worn to increase the size of the lower lip as a symbol of feminine beauty. Gradually, over the period of time, some of the Mursi Tribe women can even pull their lips up to their heads.

South America

Likewise, the Suya Tribesmen from the Amazon have used extension as a tradition when it comes to spiritual and cultural reasons. The men of the tribe used to pierce their ears and lips when they were young and as they got older the stretching continued and lips and ears were actually extended over 300 percent more.


About ancient Rome and Greece, there are several ancient references to 'preparation of the member by placing a heavy burden' and by way of a 'heated massage'. Even the younger boys were taught how to complete certain penis exercises that helped them to add length and girth.


The history of penis stretching and  even dates back to pre-Egyptian dynasty days when ancient manuscripts detailing the crude experimentation on slaves and penis  were written. It has been shown that the pharaohs of ancient Egypt practiced the “weight hanging” method of penis . However, many scientists now believe that weight hanging is not a safe and fully effective method of penis . It has been shown that while even though the length of the penis may increase over a long period of time; its thickness is actually decreased. Depending upon the hanging device, blood circulation also decreases, which can, in turn, cause necrosis (death) of the tissue.

India (South East Asia)

The Indian Sadkhus tribes achieved tremendous results by hanging stones onto penises with lianas or grass. Heavy stones extended the penis tissues with equal force during all the period while they were fixed on it. Similarly, the famous African Neck Ladies, who were able to increase the size of their necks by almost 50% by applying small amounts of pressure to their body.

In short, the above geographical and historical evidence confirms the effectiveness and success of various penis stretching and  techniques, methods and devices. As for different types of penis extenders technology, the concept of a persistent traction device like with an extender (being self-contained from the body) might not go back that far, manual stretching and jelqing surely do.
