Penis Extension Devices
Throughout history, men have turned to penis extension devices to increase their sexual prowess and improve their self-esteem. Many cultures have identified the male genital area as the center of masculinity. Well-endowed men were thought to produce a greater number of male children, sons who could one day inherit their fathers’ fortunes and noble status. Even today, a man is said to “have big balls” if he has done something that is particularly courageous. Men with large penises are believed to be more attractive to women and are revered for their ability to give their partners greater sexual pleasure. Because of this, a number of penis extension devices have been devised to help men who are not lucky enough to be well-endowed at birth.
The History of Male Enhancement
In Ancient Egypt, a large penis was seen as a sign of life, fertility and masculinity. Geb, the god of creation, was often depicted with an immense, erect penis. The Romans also honored the penis as a source of masculine fertility, depicting the harvest god Priapus as being very well endowed indeed. In some pictures, Priapus is even shown weighing his enormous penis against a bag of gold. One of the many stories in the Arabian Nights tells about “Ali with the Large Member,” a boy that is blessed with a penis of extraordinary size. The Senegalese King Dihythia was revered for his large penis and is often shown surrounded by lusting women. Even the bible gets in on the act, describing the prostitute Oholiba, who “lusted after lovers with genitals as large as a donkey’s and emissions like those of a horse.”
With such a history, it seems that the desire for male enhancement comes naturally. It is no surprise, then, that many men have come up with ways to make themselves look and feel larger. One of the oldest forms of penile extension is stretching, or weighting. In order to make their penises physically larger, men would tie weights to head area in order to stretch the shaft. This method was painful and dangerous, and generally took a number of years before men would experience permanent growth. It was effective, however, especially if treatment started at puberty. Another ancient method that is still used today is known as jelqing. This method involves massaging the penis in order to push blood into the glans and stretch the corpus cavernosum. Jelqing is believed to have originated in the Middle East, where young men preparing themselves for marriage practiced it.
Modern Methods of Male Enhancement
Today, men with small penises have more options than ever. From cosmetic procedures to high-end penis extension devices, modern male enhancement is safer and more effective than it has been at any other time in history. Cosmetic surgery is one of the most popular methods for extending the length of the penis. During surgery, doctors cut two tendons that hold the penis back against the body. Without the tendons, the penis is thrust forward and around two inches are added to its total length. Although this is the most immediate and permanent form of male enhancement, some doctors have questioned the medical wisdom of the procedure.
Men who are unhappy with their size but do not want to have surgery, often turn to a number of devices designed to help with male enhancement. One of the most popular of these is the penis pump. This cylindrical pump uses suction to stretch the penis, making it temporarily harder and larger. It is often used to relieve impotence as well as to increase length and girth. Some men also take natural supplements to increase their size. Supplements are administered in the form of a pill, patch or lotion. Most claim to contain ingredients that expand cavities within the penis. During arousal, these cavities can fill with more blood than before, increasing the total size of the erect penis. Although many men claim to have found success with these supplements, it is important to note that there is little scientific research to back up their claims.
The Benefits of Male Enhancement
The use of penis extension devices has a number of benefits for men who are suffering from low self-esteem. Study after study has shown that penis size is directly related to confidence levels in men of all ages. In fact, most men exaggerate the size of their penises in order to appear larger to others than they actually are. Men with low confidence, for whatever reason, are less likely to get the jobs they want, have the relationships they want, or take control of their lives. Additionally, studies have shown that some women really do care about penis size, although most believe that girth is more important than length. Even women who are ambivalent about the size of their partners’ penises often list confidence as one of the most attractive qualities a man can have. In short, men who suffer from low self-esteem may find that penis extension devices really will make them lucky in love and lucky in life.
