Is it possible to increase the size of your penis?
Penis size is a subject that is laden with overwhelming social pressure. Penis size is often associated with manliness or male attractiveness. These ideas often cause self-esteem issues for some men. What's more, the natural desire to satisfy one's partner during sex may lead some men to wonder whether it is possible to increase the size of the penis naturally.

There are many options available (surgery, drugs, sex toys), but their effectiveness is still up for debate. In this article, we'll look at their relative effectiveness and consider natural alternatives to penis enlargement.

Undergoing surgery

Penoplasty (or phalloplasty) will allow you to permanently increase the size of your penis. There are two types of penile surgery.
Enlargement penoplasty involves increasing the circumference of the penis. Fat is taken from the patient's stomach or thigh and injected under the skin of the penis. This is the most common procedure and results in an increase in length of around one inch.
penile lengthening surgery
Penile lengthening surgery increases the length of a flaccid penis. The suspensory ligament of the penis (i.e. the ligament that connects the penis to the pubic bone) is partially cut: the resting penis is lengthened by about one to two and half inches. It should be noted that this operation does not increase the length of the erect penis, and will therefore not be of interest to men who want to impress their partner during sex.
The decision to have surgery should be discussed with a doctor. We would like to emphasise that penis-enlarging surgery does not correct problems such as premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction. It should also be noted that, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications.

Taking penis-enlarging pills

There are many penis-enlarging pills available online, often advertised as 'natural' and harmless. However, there is no conclusive evidence that they actually work.

Remember to consult your doctor before taking any penis enlargement product. Some of them may contain ingredients that are harmful or even dangerous to your health and may cause side effects. They also may cause complications if you’re taking other kinds of medication.

A safer, healthier strategy is to refrain from products that are harmful to erections. Avoid smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating high-sugar and -fat foods wherever possible. A healthier lifestyle and regular exercise will make your erection strong and healthy for years to come.

Wearing a cock ring

A cock ring is a sex toy designed to increase the strength of your erection, as well as the length and girth of your erect penis, by exerting pressure on the blood flow. This toy will also make you last longer in bed. Wearing a cock ring will up your sexual game, allowing you to fully satisfy your partner.

Using a penis pump

A penis pump is another type of sex toy for men. A pump will allow you to temporarily, but very effectively, increase the size of your penis. Once you’ve inserted your penis into the cylinder, you can activate the pump to create a vacuum effect. The vacuum effect will increase your blood flow, creating a harder erection.

LOVE Team Tip
A penis pump can also be used to impress your partner during sex. They’ll love how firm and large your penis feels during penetration.
Remember, the effects of the penis pump are only temporary, but you can make them last longer by using a cock ring at the same time. This will give you an even longer lasting erection, which is sure to please your partner.

Finally, remember to read the user’s manual for your safety and pleasure. Read our penis pump buyer’s guide to make sure you choose the right model for you.

Working on your self-confidence

Let's be clear: self-confidence has never made anyone's penis bigger. However, it's clear that the confidence you display on a daily basis will play an important role in how others perceive you.

If you have enough confidence, the positive energy you radiate will attract potential partners. People are generally charmed by those whose quiet confidence comes across naturally. Let's not forget that satisfying sex is not just about penis size, far from it... The attention you give your partner and your ability to communicate are both essential to a fulfilling sexual experience.

So if you're looking to increase the size of your penis, consider all of the above options before deciding on a particular method. Confidence remains a key factor in attracting a partner and enjoying a fulfilling sexual life. Don't forget that healthy self-esteem will improve your sex life and, more generally, the relationship of trust and sharing you have with your partner.
