The vacuum pump. This is a cylinder that sucks out air. You stick your penis in and the resulting vacuum draws extra blood into it, making it erect and a little bigger. You then clamp off the penis with a tight ring -- like a tourniquet -- to keep the blood from leaking back into your body. What are the drawbacks? The effect only lasts as long as you have the ring on. Using it for more than 20 to 30 minutes can cause tissue damage. This is sometimes used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, but has not been proven to actually increase the size of the penis.
“Natural male enhancement pills” aren’t difficult to find — they’re advertised on the radio, television and Internet. Each purports to be the “best,” cautioning you against inferior similar products. However, these pills that claim to work miracles in the bedroom are not drugs — they’re dietary supplements. Due to this FDA classification, natural male enhancement pills cannot legally claim to prevent, treat or cure any medical condition, including erectile dysfunction, although many of them do. The FTC has taken numerous legal actions against marketers of natural male enhancement pills that use herbs and botanicals as active ingredients. The FTC, CSPI and the Mayo Clinic consider these products fraudulent. Many of the herbs in male enhancement pills have a longstanding or historical use in various traditional medicines; however, they have not undergone rigorous scientific study.
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
In the world of penis enlargement there are generally three types of options available: surgical procedure, manual exercises, and external devices. While the herbal enhancement supplements and topical solutions available can create a slight increase in size over time, the results are more of an indirect (though beneficial) side effect since their main function is to enhance performance.
Those who do not like the idea of taking a tablet every day can take liquid supplements. Liquid supplements contain the same ingredients found in the tablets. Instead of taking a single capsule every day, you simply drink a small amount of the liquid. Nutritional supplements come in several flavors, including a traditional flavor and a citrus flavor. You can drink the male enhancement liquid straight from the bottle, but some men prefer mixing the liquid supplement with water or another drink. The liquid products have the same benefits as the tablets and capsules.
