Manhood enhancement


Manhood enhancement


your avatar   "InLove," 32-year-old man

As I researched the web on help to improve the size of my manhood, I found sites that suggested different pumps. Others suggested programs (with no specific details, of course, unless you buy them), and even sites that suggested dietary measures. Of course I would like to explore my sexuality to the maximum, as well as my partner's, but I would like to have a scientific opinion, not one from a marketing site that wants to make a "quick" buck.

Is there really a way other than surgery that allows a man to add inches to his penis and/or width to it? If so, are there risks in using these techniques? Thanks.

You asked if there was anything short of surgery that could guarantee an increase in the length or girth of a penis... trust me, there is nothing guaranteed out there INCLUDING surgery! A penis is a pretty delicate hydraulic mechanism... three bundles of erectile tissue each surrounded by its own sheath, each rich with arteries and veins and having the complicated task of getting blood in and, when appropriate, trapping it and packing the erectile tissue to their fullest extend (as dictated by the amount of blood captured, the amount of erectile tissue available, and the stretching threshold of the sheaths that surround it all. I'm impressed that everything works as well as it does! I'd sure as hell not want to mess with that... the design has been good for a billion years (give or take several million).

Seriously, the pumps will make a penis swell up... but you could hit one with a hammer and get the same effect! (Sorry, I promised to be serious.) That little bit of swelling can be painful, uneven, discoloring and temporary... and even at its best this transient puffiness would not be perceivable by a woman!

There are no effective pills or potions, no creams or ointments... and I think you already sense that. What other part of your body containing soft tissue could you enlarge with any of this stuff they sell? The penis is not a muscle, so you can't really exercise it... and most of us have been pulling on them for a lot of years with no noticeable increase in size.

Save you money and devote your time to being a kind and considerate lover. Remember, most women are not orgasmic during intercourse, no matter how long the man can last or how long his "manhood" is... in fact, your manhood is not located in your penis... you express that manhood in many many ways with or without an erection, with or without insertion and thrusting. Perfect your lovemaking skills... remember, in addition to your penis, you have your hands and you have your mouth... and most important, you have your heart.
