Careful there smart ass.


I'm a big fan of 50 Cent, or as we call him in Zimbabwe, four hundred million dollars.

RESULTS: After 6 months the mean gain in length was significant, meeting the goals of the effect size, at 2.3 and 1.7 cm for the flaccid and stretched penis, respectively. No significant changes in penile girth were detected. The EF domain scores improved significantly at the end of study. Treatment satisfaction scores were consistent with acceptable to good improvement in all items, except for penile girth, where the score was either 'no change' or 'mild improvement'.

Effect of Penile-Extender Device in Increasing Penile Size in Men with Shortened Penis: Preliminary Results

Results. Twenty-three cases with a mean age of 26.5 ± 8.1 years entered the study. The mean flaccid penile length increased from 8.8 ± 1.2 cm to 10.1 ± 1.2 cm and 10.5 ± 1.2 cm, respectively, in the first and third months of follow-up, which was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Mean stretched penile length also significantly increased from 11.5 ± 1.0 cm to, respectively, 12.4 ± 1.3 cm and 13.2 ± 1.4 cm during the first and second follow-up (P < 0.05). No significant difference was found regarding proximal penile girth. However, it was not the same regarding the circumference of the glans penis (9.3 ± 0.86 cm vs. 8.8 ± 0.66 cm, P < 0.05).

Original Research - Peyronie’s Disease

In our study population, the penile extender produced an improvement in penile curvature of clinical interest when compared with that achieved with other commonly used treatment modalities such us intralesional injections. Overall, the reduction of curvature was not of great clinical relevancy. However, results were achieved in a selected population with stable disease, a condition where the existing treatment options are less likely to be effective. Significant lengthening of the penis both in the flaccid and in the stretched state was also recorded, albeit of lower magnitude than that obtained in studies on short penis. The device caused negligible side effects. Overall results were self-reported as “acceptable,” making this minimally invasive treatment modality a potential new treatment option in selected Peyronie’s disease patients.

A Guide to Peyronie’s Disease
Someone was talking about using a pump to rectify curvature and this contains information in that regard.

Only one US Company manufactures the device for medical distribution in the Americas, fsPhysioMed LLC, and a clinical trial have been completed in the US on this device. The results confirmed the efficacy of mechanical traction. All of the patients in the trial received some measure of improvement of their curvatures, ranging from 10 to 45 degrees of the original curve. They also gained girth and length, up to an increase in length of 2.5cm in one case. This is an important side-effect of value to patients who have suffered a decrease in penile length with the disease.

FastSize™ Medical Extender for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease
Although it has not yet been formally studied, the device also appears to have applications beyond Peyronie's disease; such as offering potential for offsetting penile shortening prior to implant surgery, preventing shortening following PD penile reconstruction and after radical prostatectomy where loss of penile length is commonly reported. The recent trial noted that, over a 6-month period, patients reported increases in penile length of 1-2.0 cm, with an accompanying increase in girth.

Penile size and the ‘small penis syndrome’
A recent study of 31 men, with a mean baseline stretched penile length of 12 cm, showed that with daily use of the Phallosan® extender system for ≥3 h, by 3 months there was a mean stretched length of 13 cm with a further increase to 13.8 cm by 6 months (P<0.001) [30].

These were found using Google Scholar (at the top of the page there are links Web Images Videos Maps News Books Gmail more. Click more and select scholar.) and this literally took 5 minutes to find all of this. Took more time to edit it all into this post. Some of these studies were done to determine traction device efficiency when treating peyronie’s disease but found that penile lengthening was a common side effect.

First three studies are always the same Paolo Gontero ‘study.

Interesting what the other one says:
“An older study reported the use of a
stretching device (Penistretcher®) in nine men
with a baseline stretched length of 12 cm.
They reported that after using this device for
≥6 h per day over a 4-month period, the mean
increase in stretched length was 1.8 cm [31].
Both these reports included few men and
were only reported as abstracts. There are
currently no peer-reviewed publications
related to the use of these devices in men
with SPS.

(pag. 4).

Anyway, wherever a study is published, it can’t be that reliable if there isn’t a protocol that mask the Researcher’s expectation and it’s effects on the outcome - that could create placebo effects, errors in measurements etc..

I think a poll we could do on this forum would have about the same ‘scientificity’ of those studies.

Hmmm, so this is saying that PE has nothing conclusive to it? Interesting, considering the reported gains from this site.

Starting Stats (APR '11): BPEL - 7.0" Base EG - 6.1" NBPFL - 4.75"

Current Stats (DEC '14): BPEL - 7.6" Base EG - 6.4" NBPFL - 5.5"

Interesting read. I didn’t see anything about PE having nothing conclusive to it. They said that researchers found that the extender DOES work. I already know that since I use my extender almost everyday.

Personally I don’t know if there is anything conclusive about jelqing. I only say that because the first time I did PE, I had gained 1/2” in length and had been on it for about 5 months. I came back and only retained 1/16” of those gains. I think you may have to doing PE from time to time later on. However, things could change because this time around since I’m using an extender, which works on a different principle.

Re-Start 3.10.2011 - BPEL: 6.750" EG: 4.5" | Current 7.3.2011 - BPEL: 7.250" EG: 4.625" | Just made my first 1/2"!

STUDY: Yes, men really can make it longer...

STUDY: Yes, men really can make it longer…

AFP - Some non-surgical methods for increasing the length of the male sex organ do in fact work, while others are likely to result only in soreness and disappointment, a review of medical literature has shown.

Surgical procedures, however, can be dangerous and have an “unacceptably high rate of complications,” according to the study, published this week in the Journal of the British Association of Urological Surgeons.

“An increasing number of patients seek urological advice for the so-called ‘short penis’,” the researchers reported.

This is true despite the fact that “penile length is normal in most of these men, who tend to overestimate normal phallic dimension.”

A male member — measured on the dorsal, or upper, side — can be considered normal in length if it is at least four centimetres (1.6 inches) when limp, and 7.5 centimetres (three inches) when rigid, noted several of the studies evaluated.

Some allowances, they added, must be made for a man’s height and his body-mass index (BMI), which measures deviation from optimal levels of body fat.

To determine the efficacy and safety of both surgical and non-surgical techniques for so-called “male enhancement,” Marco Orderda and Paolo Gontero of the University of Turin in Italy canvassed scientific literature.

They found 10 relevant studies. Half reported on surgical techniques, performed on 121 men.

Among the non-invasive methods, tested on 109 subjects, so-called penile extenders that stretch the phallus through traction were shown to be most effective.

One study reported an average increase of 1.8 centimetres (0.7 inches), while another measured an extra 2.3 centimetres (0.9 inches) in a flaccid state, and 1.7 centimetres (0.67 inches) when erect.

But the regimen for achieving these gains was arduous: six hours of daily traction over four months in the first case, and four hours every day over six months in the second.

Another device, known as a “penis pump,” uses a manual or motorised pump to create a vacuum inside a hard cylinder sheath, stretching the phallus.

Six months of treatment, however, “was not found to be effective for penile elongation, although is provided some sort of psychological satisfaction for some men,” the researchers said.

So-called peno-scrotal rings — expandable or rigid bands that fit around the base of the scrotum and penis — “might help to augment penile size and maintain erections in men suffering from anxiety”, they reported, but only two cases were evaluated.

Advertisements claiming that another popular technique — so-called “penile lengthening exercises” — can add centimetres or inches to one’s manhood are unfounded, say Oderda and Gontero.

Even the methods that did show some increase in length did not result in a gain in thickness, they noted.

But nor was their shrinkage.

“It is interesting that no girth decrease was reported with traction therapy, as one would have instinctively thought,” the researchers said.

What did these “researchers” do that anyone with Google can’t do?

Well it made Drudge so the secret is out. Ha

Actually, it wouldn’t deserve to be called ‘study’. It is just an article that wonders if non-surgical penis lenghtening is possible:

What's known on the subject? and What does the study add?

Penile lengthening methods remain a controversial issue. Surgical procedures of
“lengthening phalloplasty” are characterized by poorly defined indications and an
unacceptably high rate of complications, as recently outlined by a literature review, while
non-surgical techniques are largely popularized by the media but often lack scientific
evidence. In the literature we found only ten articles/abstracts of studies pertaining to the
topic of our review.
With our review, we aimed to explore whether non-surgical methods of penile
lengthening may have some scientific background”…010.09647.x/pdf

So it was a review of existing literature. We should not be giving this so much attention.

I’m only replying here because I’m 13,400 posts behind marinera and I need to catch up.
