The principles behind the mechanism of penis straightening and enlargement are pretty much the same – stretching the penile tissue over time.
If you are trying to make your penis straighter you are also enlarging its size at the same time. And other way around – by trying to make it bigger (the right way, without causing damage) you are also making it straighter.
How To Make Your Penis Straighter
First read my complete guide on how to make your penis straighter and why.
NOTE: I’m not going to go into detail about how to make your penis straighter in this post as I have written quite a few articles that cover the topic extensively. I recommend that you read them before moving on:

How to make your penis bigger and why?
The reason most people want it done naturally is because it is much cheaper, has less or no side effects and it doesn’t require a doctor and in most cases you can do it at home.
Pills and Supplements
Here’s the truth you probably didn’t want to hear.
I’ve got some bad news for you people. There are NO pills or creams that can change the size of your penis in any way, shape or form! Your little friend can not grow past its genetic potential no matter what food you eat or supplements you take!
However… If it’s not developed properly due to some medical condition like hypogonadism(low testosterone and DHT levels) than this might be somewhat different story. If you suspect that this may be your problem ask your doctor about it.
If you want to correct this naturally, you can try to do so with some lifestyle changes. Also, be sure to read the Testosterone and DHT optimization part of my Curved Penis Guide here.
But don’t worry, there are some good news too – There are some devices and exercises that CAN enlarge your dick size naturally. And there are also some pills that CAN improve you libido and erections but more on that in the next chapter.
Penis Enlargement Surgery
Before we go into natural options, lets see what are the other »un-natural options«. Let’s talk about surgery first.
»I have a small dick and it really bothers me… I wish I had a money for a surgery«.
Surgery is usually one of the first things that come to mind when you want a bigger tool. And you think you would get it if only you had enough money.
But the reality is that money doesn’t matter because to this date there has been no really effective surgical procedure to really increase the size of your penis by that much.
**Another interesting article by Medical Daily about surgeries is here.

How are the surgeries done, you wonder?
Most common surgical procedure today is cutting the suspensory ligament (check the above picture where that is). This basically means that they cut that part which connects your penis to the pubic bone. All that does is letting it hang out a bit more. Nothing else! It does not actually make it bigger nor thicker – it just makes it more visible. How much more? About 1 cm …that is LESS than half an inch!
Definitely not worth the money or the pain… or the side effects (which means possibly no more erections! – check here).
Another common surgery is cutting out the fat pad above your penis. So what this does is… again, it makes more of it visible while it stays exactly the same size. How much more visible? Not much. Depends on your fat depth. But again, not worth it. It is better choice to just to lose some weight and results will be much more satisfying overall.
And third options is stuffing the tissue with silicon-like materials or tissues harvested from cadaver making it look thicker and longer. Mostly in FLACCID state. Same principle as boob job for women. Meaning you will have implants to make it appear bigger.
Why is Penis Surgery NOT a Good Option
As nicely stated by the Mayo Clinic
»Studies have shown that the majority of men who undergo penis-enlargement surgery aren’t satisfied with the results. At best, surgery may add half an inch (1 centimetre) to the length in the flaccid state. At worst, surgery can result in complications such as infection, scarring, and loss of sensation or function.« (source)
Besides that, it is not really a cheap nor pleasant experience. I personally wouldn’t let anybody touch that area with a scalpel.
Now here is another interesting part! After the surgery is done you also need to wear an enlargement device for a few months in order to gain some size!
What is interesting here is that basically it is the device that does majority the work, not the surgery. You don’t even need the surgery at first place…
So what are the actually effective natural male enhancement options?
Effective and safe products and devices
Most common are extenders and vacuum pumps. Lets go through the options and check the science behind them.
Penis Tractions Devices
Also known as “extenders” or “traction devices”.
Extenders work by an old principle of putting a constant stretch on the penile tissue and lengthening it over time. They use »mechanical traction to progressively elongate the penis«.
As Dr. E. Douglas Whitehead said that the human body, even bone, can be stretched: “So stretching the penis, when done long enough, will work«.
But we are more interested about real studies than about what doctors say, right? There are actually more than a few studies that showed these devices can produce an “effective and durable lengthening“. Just what we want.
- A small study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research showed that a stretcher (extender) could add7 inches (1.8 centimeters)on average to the sex organ after four months of use for at least six hours a day.
- Another extender was also shown to increase penile length in participants of a study. The mean flaccid penile length increasedfrom 8.8 ± 1.2 cm to 10.1 ± 1.2 cm and 10.5 ± 1.2 cm. Results of the study are very positive. »Findings supported the efficacy of the device in increasing penile length.« Besides adding length this study also found another interesting result. Results also suggested the possibility of girth enhancement of the glans using penile extender.« Meaning that extenders can make your tool longer and also give you a nice thick glans! (source)
- Another one here – Results show »meeting the goals of the effect size, at3 and 1.7 cmfor the flaccid and stretched state”.
»Penile extenders should be regarded as a minimally invasive and effective treatment option to elongate the penile shaft.« (source)
- This is the study done on an extender that I use right now,you can check ithere. The conclusion of a clinical study carried out by a German urological clinic is that this extender is effective:
- The average result of all test patients in increase of length at non erect/erect stage: 6 cm (1.41 inches) / 2.9 cm (1.14 inches)(wearing time 6 hours 5 days a week)
- The highest result achieved after 6 months in length at non erect/erect stage:
9 cm (1.9 inches) / 4.0 cm (1.47 inches)(wearing time 9 hours 6 days a week).
Those are just few, there are many more – you can look for them yourself if you are interested.
I personally used some of the extenders and I can confirm the results. However I was using them for another purpose – for straightening my slight curve and the added size was just a bonus. It lengthened my penis for almost an inch by now and I’m still using it to hopefully gain another half an inch.
If you are interested in that story or you also have a curve you can check my full guide onhow to fix a curved penis here.
The extender I personally use right now is a little different than the ordinary extenders that you see on the ads because you can wear it during sleep, so you don’t have to deal with this hassle during the day when you generally don’t have time to wear it. It’s the most comfortable way of increasing size and correcting curvature I have tried until now. I have put a link to it before, but again, you can check it here if you are interested.
Yes, that pump from Austin Powers movies. They are not really effective for permanent enlargement but if you use them directly before sex they can give you a nice boost in erection size since they pump the blood into it.
Based on one study, vacuum devices showed no significant penile elongation after six months of therapy. So that says it all.
However they are prescribed by doctor to help treat Peyronies’d disease (curved penis).
If you do not want to use the device then I have two more possibilities for you:
If you don’t like the device doing the work for you, you can also do it by yourself. It is probably not as effective but you can do it any time you want without any equipment.
WARNING: As I have also stated previously I tried those exercises at the beginning but due to my curvature it did not feel right. Unless you have a perfectly straight penis It is safer to use the extender device or you can make things worse due to uneven pressure on the tissue! There have been many cases where people damaged their penises with exercises! Be careful!
Also Dr. Gontero and his colleagues found no scientific evidence to support manual exercises. Which makes sense. There is no benefits in conducting such a study. But there are some forums that deal with this kind of exercises and they have some success stories.
The most successful stories use effective exercise regimen process that is in most cases combined with the use of traction devices.
Bonus: Loose fat?
Now here’s a rule –for every 10 pounds of fat you loose 1 inch..
I think this one is self explanatory. The bigger your gut, the smaller the visible part of your penis. This is the same as with fat pad surgery, the less fat you have above and around your tool the bigger it appears. It is not actually bigger…but it looks bigger for what’s that worth!
