My penis is too small, how to enlarge it?

First of all, we have to define what small really means and what statistics apart from any personal impressions and taste actually say: The flaccid size is irrelevant, some men have a rather small penis growing to enormous size when erect, on the other hand there are men with a rather impressive flaccid penis that just erects itself when aroused and doesn’t grow much in girth or length. Flaccid and erect size don’t correlate.

Even in reputable studies, the statistical average varies, US median is about 5.5 inch according to the biggest study (1661 sexually active men) we could find by the well known Journal of Sexual Medicine. Most men have an erect size between 5 and 6 inch, so below 5 inch can be considered small. Don’t be fooled by the penis sizes you often see in adult movies, all actors are selected individuals far above the average size. These movies certainly don’t depict any statistical average and also use visual tricks to make the manhood of the male actors appear even larger.

Does penis size matter for women?

The question most men probably care for most. While many woman claim that penis size isn’t important for them and it’s all about the right technique and a loving partner treating them well, that’s only half the truth. In totally anonymous surveys, the number of women claiming that penis size is important for them, at least from a aesthetic viewpoint, is significantly higher than in face to face surveys. This fact doesn’t mean a smaller penis can’t satisfy a women, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a perfect sex life with a small penis, but the the harsh truth is: Size matters, at least for some women. No need to panic if you have a small penis, according to a combined study of several reasearch institutes since 1942, 85% of all women are happy with the penis size of their partner, while only 55% of all men are happy with their own penis. So, the percieved problem is bigger than the real one.

Good news: Too big isn’t good, if you are hung like a horse chances are high that intercourse isn’t possible in some positions since it hurts. While being very stretchable, the average vagina is only about 4.5 inch deep. So, average or a little below average can have it’s advantages as well, especially if you perfer practices like anal sex.

Is penis size determined by genetics?

Definitely yes, if you have a big or small penis is mostly defined by your genes. Sons of men with a large penis often have a large penis. Sons of men with a small penis often have a smaller penis. There are certainly exceptions, but in general genes are very dominant when it comes to erect penis size.

Can food or supplements help my penis grow?

Neither food nor any supplements influence penis growth or size. That’s the reason why all the so called penis pills offered on the internet simply don’t work at all, don’t believe all the fake promises. All those pills increase the blood flow only, which may cause a harder erections, but the effect instantly stops once you stop taking those pills. So, a lot of wasted money for non-permanent effect. It’s tempting, the sellers of those pills will show you doctors smiling from their websites, pseudo scientific studies from India they paid for, raving testimonials from famous pornstars but it’s just a huge scam scheme. It’s an extremely profitable business, selling cheap herbs for astronomical prices, combined with often shady long term recurring billing that’s hard to cancel. Bottom line: Penis pills are pure “snake oil” often made of cheap ingredients importet from China, overpriced and even potentially harmful for you health. Especially the contamination with heavy metals and carcinogenic colorings is a possible problem. Some sellers claim their products are manufactured in FDA approved laboratories, but this doesn’t mean the product itself is controlled by the FDA, like prescription drugs.

Even worse, many of these pills contain undeclared substances to make buyer believe the product works. There are hundreds of different so called penis enalrgement pills on the FDAs official “Tainted Sexual Health Products” warning list, including some very well known and popular pill brands. The hidden drug ingredients are often Sildenafil (Viagra), Tadalafil (Cialis) or Vardenafil, subtances used to treat erection problems, short ED (erectile dysfunction). While these prescription only drugs can help patients suffering from ED, they can also have dangerous side effects and interactions, especially for people taking certain cardiac drugs. In the worst case, they can cause heart attacks, there are several verified actual deaths related to dubious penis pills. Don’t risk your life and stay away from enhancement pills, no matter how tempting the advertsing or fake reviews sound. Go for effective natural training instead.

Can surgery increase penis size?

Yes, it can, but surgery is always associated with risks, including anesthesia, wound healing deficits, pain from scars, worst case even a deformed penis or permanent erectile problems. It’s effective without a doubt, but the last resort in our opinion. For men with a real micropenis (smaller than 2.75 inch) it’s often the only solution and covered by health insurance, but only about 0.5% of all men worldwide suffer from this condition. If you are just a bit below average, the risk versus reward calculation is negative for surgical penis enlargement. Especially one problem that arises from cutting the ligaments, the erection pointing slightly downwards instead of straight forward, can become a real problem according to professor Kevan Wylie from the NHS, he said “It can make sex quite uncomfortable. You’ve got to do a lot more manoeuvring with your partner. The advantage of a 2cm (0,8 inch) gain in flaccid length is far outweighed by the loss of angle of erection.”

Apart from the risks, penoplasty (surgical penile lengthening and girth enhancement) is the most expensive way for penile enhancement. According to About Health it ranges from $4000 up to $17000. If you are interested in surgical enhancement, we recommend reading the in-depth article on Medscape about possible surgical techniques and results. There is a less risky new method, the FDA-cleared Penuma implant developed by Dr. Elist (James Elist, MD) for flacid size enlargement, but the erect size lengthening is minimal and the cost is in the low five digits, too.

This doesn’t mean penis surgery isn’t a viable solution for various medical indications like e.g. a penile prosthesis in case of complete impotence (erectile dysfunction), circumcision in case of serious foreskin constriction (phimosis) but for enlagement only, there are less risky ways with good rewards as well. Responsible plastic surgeons only offer surgical penis enlargement for patients suffering from a very small penis or micro penis. In addition, there are only very few surgeons who have the skills and knowledge to safely perform this very special type of medical intervention.

Can extender or pumps make a small penis grow?

Streching devices and penis pumps are increasingly popular, often selling for hundreds of dollars. We recommend staying away from these devices, because using them can lead to permanent damage of the cavernous body and blood vessels of your penis. In worst case, the usage of penis extenders can result in erectile dysfunction, the inability to get and maintain an erection. Although many surgeons keep warning about them, these warnings are unheard and ignored by many men. Reconstructive surgery for a penis damaged by excessive and wrong use of streching devices is very expensive and rarely results in full recovery. Some of the world’s top penis enlargement surgeons from the well-known German Urology Center (Ph.D. Christoph Jethon et al.) even say that they are not interested in patients suffering from these kinds of injuries, because fixing these damages is extremely difficult. So, quickly forget about all this “Stud Quick Extender Mark III Pro Power Solution Super Size” crap! Don’t let the companies offering them fool you with claims like certifications as a medical device, doctor approvals, paid testimonials, photoshopped before and after pictures or similar.

Especially strechers are aggressively marketed because manufacturing costs are only about $20 in China and they sell to consumers from $150 up to almost $500. Don’t believe it? Check chinese websites/marketplaces like Alibaba for wholesale prices. A profit margin of up to 2500% is something even many drug lords are envious of, so the companies selling extenders build shiny websites, pay medical personnel for fake testimonials or raving reviews of these useless and dangerous devices.

Can training make my small penis bigger?

Penis exercises, often referred to as jelqing, were already used in ancient Egypt as a method for penis enlargement. While the multi billion dollar pills and expander industry that’s trying to sell you their overpriced herbs or pulling devices claims these methods don’t work well, they actually do. Reputable training programs like the “Penis Enlargement Remedy” helped thousands of men to increase their penis size.

Do not expect miracles, but adding about 2 inches to your erect size after a few weeks of training isn’t an exception. Many men report this kind of result, some even up to 4 inches. Like all workouts, results won’t magically show after a few days, but with the right exercise plan, you’ll recognize a slow but steady growth.

The advantages: It’s safe, you won’t harm your health by trying. It’s inexpensive, most penis enlargement programs for a small penis cost about $50, one time investment, no hidden recurring charges. That’s less than half the money a one month supply of ineffective penis pills would cost you.

Important: Especially young men often feel insecure about their penis, while it is still growing. Penis exercises are only suitable for adults, when natural penis growth is finished, that’s in the early twenties. Starting before this age is not recommended.

How long does penis enlargement take?

For the best results, calculate three to six months for significant results. The success of penis exercises varies, some guys are really lucky and see a measurable growth in just a few weeks, for some guys it takes a little longer. Don’t give up if you don’t get fast results, every penis is a little different, but jelqing already worked in ancient egypt, so it will work for you, too. Todays techniques and exercises are a lot more sophisticated than in the beginning, tested by thousands of men who successfully enlarged their penis this way, so it’s really only a matter of time. It works for everybody, without exceptions. It’s no easy way, like training in the gym: Cheating yourself, skipping exercises or being lazy and neglecting your training means it will take longer till you notice results. Do it!

Are there any ways to make my penis look bigger?

Great news, even without a real increase in size, you can make your penis look bigger, in erect and flaccid state. The easiest one is to shave or trim your public hair, if this extra inch hidden in the jungle is suddenly visible, it already makes you manhood look a bit more impressive. In case you have a few extra pounds, losing lower belly fat can optically enhance your penis, too. Unfortunately, this is a purely optical enlargement, but an easy and instant way to present your penis in a particularly advantageous possible way.

Another option for an “emergency” short term size increase is simply having a warm bath, a shower, wrapping your penis with a wet and warm towel or simply pulling it by hand. The blood flow increases and the flaccid size increases, too. The effect only lasts for minutes, but there are situations this may become handy, especially if you were in a cold environment before and your penis size has “shrunk” to even smaller than usual.

Even technology is offering some help, let’s call it digital male enhancement, although some people may qualify it as cheating: An android app called “RetouchMe” is offering retouching services for your face and body and explicitly includes an option to virtually get a bigger dick. Sample photos only include dressed men with a big bulge in their pants. Use at your own risk and always remember, making promises you can’t keep on Tinder, Instagram or your favourite dating site may result in disappointed women and that’s not what real enlargement is about.

What is the small penis syndrome (SPS)?

In contrast to common believe, the small penis syndrome is a mental disorder, subsumed under body dismorphic disorders (BDDs) and/or anxiety disorders. Basically, it’s a wrong perception of the own body, Men affected by it believe their penis is way too small, are almost obsessed by this thought, although their manhood has a normal length and girth. While the symtoms are very severe, including depression, anxiety and isolation, it’s a very rare psycological disorder. It’s often triggered by very negative personal experiences, e.g. rejection by a woman and other sexual problems. In case you think your penis is tiny, but has normal measurements, seeking professional help is recommended. There is also a very detailed article by clinical psychologist Ph.D. Mark Dombeck on MentalHelp we recommend for more details about SPS, characteristics and treatment. He points out: “It appears to us that some men have perfectly adequate penises, based on the measurements they’ve communicated. These penises are not going to break any world records, but they are probably just fine, however, these men are firmly convinced that they are hopelessly inadequately small.”

Is there a correlation between penis size and premature ejaculation?

A small penis isn’t more sensitive than a larger one, but surprisingly there is some correlation, many men with a relatively small penis report that they ejaculate prematurely. From the purely medical point of view, this could be conincidence, but not from the psychological. No matter how important or unimportant penis size is for the female partner, men with a smaller penis often feel unsecure, at least subconsciously. Insecurity leads to stress and bodily tension, which encourages coming too fast. This subjective failure causes even more stress the next time, a cycle that’s hard to break. That’s the main reason why penis enlargement often assists in lasting longer in bed, too.

Small penis size or girth and self confidence

Last but not least, the biggest problem of a small penis isn’t the penis itself, but guy attached to it. Every penis is different and unique, you can have a wonderful and sexually fulfilled life even if your size is below average. Always keep in mind that the majority of sexual stimulation a women feels during intercourse comes from her clit, not her vagina. Additionally, there is much more about being a man than the size of what you are carrying around between your legs. That’s probably the most important and valuable advice we can give: Try to relax, a large penis doesn’t automatically or magically make you happier or more adorable for women. Don’t let your penis size control your self-esteem.

Where do I get additional help and support?

Doing exercises and staying on track can sometimes be tedious and requires motivation. If you tend to procrastinate things, it can be helpful to have someone coaching you, someone who knows how penis enlargement works, someone who already helped thousands of guys to get a bigger penis, more stamina and and overall better sex. The most famous male enhancement coach, who was even featured on CNN, MSNBC and sites like Men’s Health, is AJ Alfaro, also called “Big Al”. He is one of the few real male enhancement experts worldwide who offers 1 on 1 coaching, helping you to get exactly the penis you want, no matter if your problem is length, girth or a curvature. This personal coaching called “MeCoach” costs a little more than a normal at home training program without additional support, but is inexpensive anyway, starting at about $25 a month depending on the package you choose (1 month, 3 month or 3 month with additional weekly calls by phone and direct access to your coach via Skype). So, if you are insecure if you can exercise correctly with a guide or you need additional information, some extra motivation and documentation of your progress, this program is what you are looking for. Of course, absolute discretion is guaranteed.

    Hi, I’d have a quick question: The jelqing technique creates micro fissures, which is pretty much the same way penis extenders work. So, from my point of view, it’s basically the same and doing jelq exercises sounds more time consuming than just wearing a device. Is there any flaw in my assumption?

    Reply
    1. SPE Post author

      Hi JJohn,

      you are right, both approaches are based on the fact that healing micro fissures slowly grow new tissue. At first glance, they are similar, but there are huge differences in the force applied. When jelqing, no matter if wet or dry jelqs, you are just using your thumb and index finger most of the time (“ok” sign) pulling softly and applying light pressure, usually no longer than 20 minutes. You got full control. Same with Kegel exercises, you can’t do any harm with them. A stretching device is totally different, while the pulling force can be regulated for some of these devices, it’s pulling much stronger, in just one direction, without interruptions and for hours, with your glans locked in the device. You don’t have control.

      Also keep in mind that, with a few rare exceptions, these devices aren’t certified medical devices. Don’t get fooled by advertisements with people in a white coat, not everybody wearing one is a real doctor or a doctor qualified to give advice on male enhancement. There are only two pharmacies are allowed to sell (Phallosan Forte and Penimaster Pro) which are relatively safe if you correctly follow all instructions. Especially if you are a beginner, the chances of hurting yourself with one of those agressively advertised extenders is high, even if you stick to the instructional videos or guides. Any severe damage done to the erectile tissue may require corrective sugery or may even result in irreverible erectile problems. Taking unnecessary risks just to add a few inches isn’t a good idea. Stay safe!

    I’m Greg and I’m 27, but never had a sexual relationship with a woman before. The reason is my 3,3 inches, I doubt that’s enough to satisfy a women and I’m really insecure what I should do to solve this problem. I really fear the disappointment and rejection.

      Hi Greg,

      first of all, talking about your problem is really bold and the right step. While 3,3 inches may be below average, it doesn’t mean you can’t satisfy a women. There are many more ways than just intercourse and there are women who absolutely prefer a smaller penis over a large one, because a big penis is painful for them. For many, 3,3 inches are fine and enough. There is much more about being a man than just penis size, a huge penis doesn’t make you a better man, a good husband or a loving father. Just because the guys in adult movies are hung like a horse and keep an erection for hours virtually doesn’t mean that’s normal, they often heavily rely on vacuum pumps and chemical help like PDE5 inhibitors. That’s not the average guy, that’s not what average women want. So, there is absolutely no reason to be ashamed or too shy, don’t let your penis define your self-confidence!

    Just a bit of feedback on the penis enlargement remedy pdf you recommend: I tried quite a few enhancement guides I found on the web, but this is the first one I’m really happy with. Thanks! The reasons are: It’s realistic and doesn’t have too many too complicated exercises only suitable for people who have previous experience, it concentrates on the effective ones that keep giving you gains. My total length gain so far is 1.2 inches, with half an inch plus in girth. That’s only from the jelqing exercises, I never tried any traction devices or similar.

    I really appreciate that your warning on so called enlargment pills, it’s the first thing I tried since it sounded so easy and comfortable, but none of them ever worked. I spent several hundred dollars on this crap, all I got was heartburn and some mild diarrhea.

      Hi AussiG,

      thanks a lot for your feedback! We are happy you found the program that fits your needs, we personally reviewed and tested all the ones mentioned on the comparison subpage. The other two very popular ones aren’t bad, too, but in terms of user friendliness, PER certainly sticks out of the crowd. That’s the main advantage we see, too, the more complicated and time consuming, the higher the chances that users quit because they lose interest. It’s not like it’s the only way to success, but one that is straight to the point and works well for many men.

    Are there any breaktroughs or new methods in enlargement? Do any big pharma companies have something in their development pipeline?

    Reply
    1. SPE Post author

      Hi Nick and Rick,

      the most significant new method is probably a surgical one, the Penuma penis implant. Like silicone implants for female breasts, it gives a permanent legthening effect and is, and that’s the most important part, easily reversible. As far as non-surgical methods are concerned, there is a lot of research on stem cells to make new tissue grow in general. Maybe the future to make your penis bigger, but so far it’s more like science fiction, even far from an experimental stage.

      Big pharma companies don’t publish what’s going on in their secret labs, but we are sure they would come up with some sort of enlargement pill if it would be possible. Viagra was a sensational success for Pfizer, any medication for penile enhancement would become a bestseller, too, a patent worth billions. Doesn’t look like this will ever happen, there is no imaginable way how a pill could increase size.

      If there is anything newsworthy for our visitors, we’ll make sure to be among the first to publish it!

    Thanks for your insight. I spent hours on research on male enhancement and your site is the first one I’m really happy with. There is an abundance of website on PE, but most list treatment options (mostly surgery, not my preference), facts, but without any feasible recommendations. I think coaching instead of a written guide is exactly what I need, I’ll report back.

      Hi Samtha,

      I’m happy to hear that you are interested in more information, we update the site whenever there is someting newsworthy, but don’t expect any breakthrough development in penis enlargement soon. From time to time, there is a new surgical technique, often not much better than the ones already existing. As far as non-surgical, natural length and girth improvement is concerned, there are limits set by nature, it’s not like there are endless possibilities. Some sort of traction causing a slow tissue growth. Stem cells are a big hope, but that’s all experimental and pretty difficult.

      That’s the reason why we don’t have a newsletter. It’s pointless since there aren’t many news and we don’t want to send advertising newsletters because there isn’t a huge number of good or recommandable products anyway. Reporting personal gains once a week or once a month is barely interesting for anyone. There are enough newsletters filling our inboxes daily, trying to sell things noone needs. It’s annoying me, it’s annoying most recipients. That’s not my approach and not the approach of the rest of the team, we want to offer real value and it works best the way it is.
