Penis enlargement from A to Z

Updated on 26 October 2023.

femme-choqueeWhen a man is looking for a solution to enlarge his penis, it’s not a whim or a luxury. It’s often the result of a real physical and psychological need that makes penis enlargement necessary, even indispensable, to achieve stable emotional balance and serene physical fulfillment.

If you’re interested in this subject, you’ll find everything you need to know on this page to help you in your quest for the perfect phalus.

Let’s start with this:

The difference between enlarging the penis, lengthening it or making it bigger

Lengthening the penis
It’s clear: we’re talking about adding centimetres to the length of the penis.

Many men suffer from micropenis syndrome: medicine classifies a penis as such when it doesn’t exceed 8 centimetres when erect.

As a result, there are many different penis lengths.

Jonah Falcon is the proud owner (seriously?) of the world’s longest penis: 24.13 cm at rest and 34.29 cm when erect!

But is Jonah a happy man? Nothing could be further from the truth! The truth is, we don’t really know, because he doesn’t talk about it much. But it’s worth knowing that having a large penis (longer than normal) can also be a source of worry for a man: in most cases, partners in bed shun him because intercourse is difficult, painful, even dangerous.

In short, for those of you with less disproportionate expectations, it’s entirely possible to lengthen the penis using certain methods that we explain at length here on our site.

Penis enlargement
spicy handHere, it’s more a question of modifying the diameter and circumference of the penis. Some men consider their penis long enough, but not very big. The average penis is 12 cm in circumference when erect.

These men are thought to have concerns about the aesthetics of their penis. They would like to have a sex that is proportional in terms of length/girth.

One of the best-known methods for dealing with this concern is self-grafting of fat into the body of the penis.
More specifically, this involves taking fat from the patient himself and placing it under the skin of the penis using a special procedure.

By the way, the circumference of the penis has no real impact on sexual intercourse. The spongy body on the underside of the penis is soft, allowing it to adapt to the diameter of the vagina.

Penis enlargement
Both at once! A man may wish to have a longer and larger penis at the same time: a big penis, that is! Needless to say (as mentioned above), there are methods to satisfy this need.

The important thing is to take the time to make THE right decision. When you know exactly what you need, you’ll know which solution to adopt. That way, you won’t go down the wrong road and waste time.

In the next section, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about your penis. Once you’ve got a clearer picture, you’ll be able to browse through the products we’ve tested and reviewed to find the right solution for your needs and expectations.

But above all! Will enlarging your penis help you feel better about yourself and your sexuality? Are you doing it for the right reasons?

Why do you want to enlarge your penis?

There are many reasons why a man might want to increase the size of his penis.

In essence, a man tends to define himself through his penis: it’s the sexual attribute that sets him apart from the opposite sex.

The penis enlargement industry has flourished in recent years in response to men’s concerns about penis size and its impact on their personal development as individuals and as couples.

Studies carried out on this subject show that and the various male motivations for enlarging the penis would be:

  • To regain self-confidence ;
  • To please one’s partner;
  • Reconciling with one’s own image;
  • To fit into the global norm;
  • To go beyond the norm and achieve a personal feat;
  • To be more beautiful, to have more sex appeal; …

As you can see, most of the reasons behind this choice are psychological!

It’s our attitude towards our sexual organ that drives us to worry about it. Which is perfectly legitimate.

Since the dawn of time, man has never stopped thinking about improving his physical condition. Skin, hair, nails and many other parts of the body have always been the object of maintenance and modification to appear more beautiful. The penis is no exception.

man-who-watches-a-movie-XNow there’s also a fashion effect, accentuated by the easy and exaggerated access to pornographic images.

All those long, big penises populating the screens end up making every man question his own “material”. And sometimes, to look for ways to make it bigger!

Let’s remember at this point that porn is first and foremost an industry based on tight casting, filming and editing techniques designed to idealize male performance, to satisfy fantasies! There’s nothing real about it!

We’ll talk more about pornography vs. real life below, to further explain this phenomenon.

There are also medical motivations (physical or organic) that drive people to undergo more extensive procedures.

We’re talking here about penis surgery, which may be unavoidable because it’s long past time to intervene. This is the case for micro-sized penises (or micropenises), abnormally constituted or abnormally curved penises…
In short, these are rather medical cases where intervention is imperative, whereas in the first case, it’s a matter of choice that depends on the person’s attitude (which normally doesn’t really require intervention).

In any case, the decision to enlarge a penis rests with the person concerned, and this is perfectly normal.

We’re going to take a closer look at the issue, to provide you with some elements that might help you make THE right decision, so that you won’t have any regrets later on. We’ve put together some information to help you understand the issues surrounding penis enlargement.

Everyone has the right to aspire to something better, to achieve true satisfaction and self-esteem. But the question is: Do I really need this?

What is a normal penis size?

exhibitionistIt’s a question that has long preoccupied all men. Particularly back in the days when no man really knew what other penises were like: it was normal for no one to flaunt their sex in public, or at least not very much…

Nowadays, with the Internet, photos and videos spread freely and without restriction. Just type “penis” into Google and you’ll come across thousands of photos and videos!

This brings us back to our original question:

What is a normal penis?

It’s true that we hear of very long penises exceeding 20 centimetres, sometimes even reaching 30 centimetres!

In this age of image-editing software, it’s not uncommon to come across photos of guys with long, sometimes even frightening penises, often with young women looking surprised and mouths agape at the sight of such monsters!

But wait a minute…

Studies carried out on a fairly large number of men, on an international scale, have tried to get to the bottom of this.

Resting and erect penises were measured to identify the average size of the male genitalia.

How big is the average sex?

Scrolling meterThe results are clear and unanimous: an average penis (before we talk about normal!) is more or less between 12 and 15 centimetres, when erect.

At restthe average penis is between 8 and 10 centimetres.

For those of you who have a ruler now and measure your penis while reading this article: Don’t worry, you have a normal penis and you may even be above average!

If we forget about size, length or girth for a moment, we can define a normally functioning penis as… a normal penis!

Yes, a normal penis would also be a sex with the common shape of a penis (glans, trunk and testicles), able to become erect, able to ejaculate normally (and urinate too, don’t forget!).

In short, it’s a fully functional penis that can make a woman come and fulfills its role.. That’s a normal penis!

Penis size is generally a matter of aesthetics and ego.

Many men are quite happy with their current penis size, the main thing being that it’s functional and always delivers.

Others, on the other hand, are less so and aspire to more, which is perfectly understandable and legitimate. Everyone has the right to feel good about themselves and their bodies!

Once we know the average size worldwide, we’re entitled to ask ourselves a number of questions: Am I normal? Is my penis normal? Do I really need to enlarge my penis?

How do I know if I have a normal penis?

Whatever the case, you’re here to find answers to your questions and, perhaps, solutions to your worries. Our answer, right now!

You have three options:

  • Your penis works well, even if it’s not above the world average, and you’re happy with its performance: keep up the good work and keep your spirits high!
  • Your penis isn’t above average, it’s performing well but you’d like to do better: take charge and start looking for a penis enlargement solution that’s right for you.
  • Your penis isn’t above average and breakdowns are frequent and even begin to weigh you down: take charge and start the improvement process.
  • The solutions are out there, but you’ve got to put your heart and soul into it, and be patient. You’ll get there!

You can take a look at the different solutions we’ve already examined on AOF, to help you decide which method is best for you.

Our tests will help you make that decision:

The right technique for measuring your penis

Just a moment… how do you know if your penis isn’t the world’s average? Have you measured your penis WELL? Are you sure your measurements aren’t off?

In short, do you really know how to measure a penis properly?

Let’s start by learning how to measure properly

There are many parameters to consider when measuring a penis.

Many men think that their penis doesn’t fit the standards just because they haven’t measured properly. Here’s how!
Climate
Did you know that climate plays a major role in penis measurement?
Cold and heat have an influence on erection and can easily distort measurements.
That’s why a penis that’s warm will be more relaxed, while one that’s cold will be curled up and shrunken. These are the laws of physics! So take care when measuring your sex and make sure it’s as relaxed as possible.

EyeOptical illusion is one of the main causes of misconceptions about penis size.

When you look at your own penis, it’s more than normal for it to appear small – sometimes too small in your eyes! We remind you that you’re in “bird’s-eye” mode: in fact, this is a filming technique used in the movie industry to “crush” the subject being filmed!

On the other hand, when you observe the proportion of your penis to your body from a “medium” shot perspective (if you have your picture taken properly, for example), you’ll have a precise idea of the size of your contraption.

While we’re on the subject of cinema, let’s take this opportunity to talk about other tricks you can use to show off your penis:

– photographing/filming in “low-angle” mode ;
– photographing/filming it in the foreground in relation to the face;

This gives very good results, as evidenced by the photos guys take of their “devices” on blogs (e.g. on Tumblr).

PerpendicularThe external appearance of the penis can affect penis measurement.

Too much fat (that’s the case with well-wrapped penises!) on the skin of the penis can totally give the illusion that the penis is short. When the skin is pulled towards the base of the penis, its true length is revealed.

After the cinematography course, here comes the math…!

That’s why you need to make sure that the ruler you use to measure really starts from the base of the penis, parallel to its entire length and perpendicular to the pubis.

IncurvedThe shape of the penis can also distort a measuring operation.

A curved penis gives the impression that it’s shorter.

If you measure it properly and make sure that the measuring tool (ruler or tape) fits perfectly over the entire surface of the penis, then you’ll get the right result along its length.

Tape measureThe measuring technique itself gives more or less good or bad results.

Many men measure from the testicles: avoid!

There’s no way to tell where to place the zero centimeter on the testicles! You have to measure from the other side: where the penis “comes out” of the lower abdomen. This is the only way to get a true penis size. You also need to make sure that the measurement goes all the way to the head of the glans.

Easter statuesAnother trick used to obtain more accurate measurements is to reproduce a sculpture of the penis.

Yes, specialists can help you reproduce a plastic or latex copy of your penis: there you’ll be able to take it in hand and make all the necessary measurements. In fact, this is how dildos are made. And who knows? Maybe this will be a good model for an intimate toy! 🙂

Measuring wireAnother trick is to use a thin thread or rope, stretched over the penis from its base to the glans.

This method also seems to ensure that the correct measurements are taken for both length and circumference. The circumference can also be measured with a (dressmaker’s) tape measure.

Finally, all methods are good for measuring the penis, just make sure there are no things that could distort the measurement.

Why do some people have very long penises?

Woman-with-a-banana-smile

There are exceptions: penises that reach “super-human” lengths! But these are exceptions, that’s all!

We saw, in another article, that Jonah Falcon has the world’s longest penis, recorded to date, at over 34 centimetres: it’s true that it’s a very long penis… but that doesn’t make it a benchmark! That’s why he’s (currently and apparently) one of the only human beings to be so mounted.

When we spoke of an average size of 14 centimetres, we meant that measured penises had sizes both below and above this average. YES, long penises do exist, but they’re not the standard, nor the rule.

For those of you unfamiliar with Gauss’s Law (also known as the Normal Law), we’d like to take this opportunity to say that it’s a law that describes the worldwide normality of any natural phenomenon.

According to this law, the largest majority is found around the general average (in our case, the 14 cm), while the other sizes (those under 8 cm and over 18 cm) are at the extremes: we could say that, compared to this large majority, they are less important in terms of numbers.

Many people believe that penis size is closely linked to a man’s origin, race or ethnicity.

A common misconception is that all black men have very long penises, while Asians have micropenises.

Other urban legends have always linked general body size to penis size.

Or the size of the foot or the size of the nose could give an idea of the size of the penis.

Of course, this is all nonsense! The only thing to remember is the norm, which is an average of 14 cm for everyone.

Note about Jonah Falcon: We don’t know if this “mounted” person exists! We do know, however, that the human body contains a total of around 5 to 6 liters of blood! So it must be pretty hard for Jonah to get that little monster to stiffen up properly!

Is penis size really important for a man?

The question is legitimate… but it’s still incomplete!!! Is penis size important…
To whom? For the man? For the woman?

Let’s find out! For men, it’s usually a question of ego. Indeed, except in the case of micropenis, size becomes important when men compare themselves with their peers.

Once again, we come back to the issue of access to the sexual image of others. It’s because a man has seen another man’s penis that he begins to compare.

Have you heard of the locker-room complex?

It begins in adolescence, when after sports, in the shower, future adults start asking each other questions about their respective sizes.

These days, the problem is compounded when we compare ourselves to porn actors who have been selected precisely for their advantageous proportions or astonishing performances. By adding special effects in terms of shots and fittings, the uninformed viewer is quickly put off.

He or she can then enter an atmosphere where a penis must necessarily be long, fat, stiff and ejaculating large quantities of semen!

Is this really important for a woman?

Woman surprise big penisAnd what about the woman?

Studies have shown that penis size is only important to a very small proportion of women. These women fantasize all the time about a partner who’s as big as a horse and who’ll give them a run for their money!

But don’t worry! Most women, who are rather realistic and reserved when it comes to sex, don’t conceive of men with very long, imposing penises: it shocks them, frightens them and hurts them. It’s just not practical!

In general, women are more interested in an understanding, nurturing partner, with a penis size within the norm (+/- 7 to 16 cm), on the sole condition that it’s functional!

So, gentlemen, instead of trying to reach lengths that are sometimes inconceivable, work on the quality of your erection, the general appearance of your penis and, above all, make good use of all your sexual assets. A healthy penis does what it’s told.

Pornography Versus Real Life: A Big Difference

Pornography, by definition, is a part of the film industry that focuses on sex (and not on a man’s sex life – that’s quite different!). That said, it’s cinema!

Speaking of porn in this way, our aim is to remind you that X-rated films are essentially fictions whose aim is to entertain rather than to educate or to reflect reality.

For those of you who are more interested, you can do some research to understand what the porn industry is all about.

As with any film production, porn actors are cast according to the producer’s vision.

Clearly, the most sought-after characteristics in male actors are :

  • a long penis (beyond the norm, in any case) ;
  • a stiff, erect penis;
  • athletic stamina;
  • good control of erection and ejaculation (with plenty of it!).

Producer ChairYou see, we’re just listing your worries, gentlemen.

You’d like to have a big, fat, long, stiff penis that lasts for hours and shoots lots of semen!

But why? Are you planning a career in porn 🙂

Pornography is not a standard

Indeed, porn isn’t a rulebook, and no man should base his decision to enlarge his penis on the proportions of porn stars.

Of course, those responsible for these films will seek out the rare pearls of “sex beasts” to push their productions even further.

And let’s not forget all the (obligatory, it has to be said) special effects that guarantee a good average 20-30 minute scene, where the guy gets hard all the time, satisfies his partner completely and only ejaculates once, at the end!

What do you mean, you ejaculate after just 5 minutes?! Oh La La La La…

Don’t worry: you’re normal! By the way, this is what can be seen on another form of pornographic production, this time quite unofficial: amateur videos on the Internet, where you can see how normal people are!

Another article explains all about ejaculation: Premature ejaculation from A to Z.

Pornography is full of mistakes!

Before we finish talking about pornography, it’s worth noting a few problems with the industry:

  • Bodies are too idealized. Men have big penises, women have big breasts and everyone is clean-shaven. Hello clichĂ©s!
  • Stereotypes are accentuated. For example, lesbianism only features in the deepest male fantasies: it’s not a sexual trend in its own right;
  • A distinct lack of communication. Discussions between couples are very rare (even if they do take place, they don’t really talk about sex life as such). Partners intuitively know each other’s needs beforehand. A quick “hi” and then boom-boom!
  • The condom is not very prominently displayed. This goes against all the efforts made in the area of sexual protection;
  • Exaggerated sexual practices. Repeated orgasms at short intervals are not commonplace. Scenes of excessive ejaculation are sometimes well worked out to satisfy certain fantasies, … ;
  • Frequent mysoginism. The condition of women in X-rated films is not always very edifying. She is generally badly treated, even humiliated to the extreme, once again to satisfy viewers’ fantasies ;
  • … and so on!

To conclude this XXX section, we invite our readers (and our female readers too!) to take what they see in X-rated films with a grain of salt.

An informed man is worth two!

On the other hand, if you’re still interested in lengthening your penis and gaining a few centimetres to make it look more reassuring, read on.

Solutions and methods for enlarging your penis

For a long, long time, men have been trying every possible solution to get a longer penis.

But why are they so preoccupied with penis enlargement?

The penis has always been, and will continue to be until further notice, THE symbol of virility.

Having a giant penis has always been synonymous with superiority. Just take a look at the various drawings and books left by our ancestors to get a clearer idea of the place occupied by penis size in their imaginations.

So, men have tried all sorts of techniques to enlarge the penis, from the most absurd to the most superstitious! Some have even gone so far as to invoke spirits and use magic.

However, of all these techniques, it is of course only those explained by science that have proved their worth.

How to enlarge your sex naturally?

We take a look at the various proven methods for enlarging the penis, for you.

Starting with :

Penis enlargement pills

Nature speaks!
Since the dawn of time, there have been components in the foods we eat that are known to have a positive effect on the human body.

When it comes to penis size, science clearly explains that it’s a question of the overall health of the body first, and then of the penis itself. If the penis is well supplied with blood, the blood circulating in its vessels will swell the cavernous and spongy bodies of the penis. The penis will then reach its maximum size when erect, and even when at rest.

Compare your penis to a pneumatic tire that’s not properly filled with air: it will look stunted and “dead”.
Inflate it all the way and you’ll see how it looks! It’s as simple as that.

Penis enlargement pills contain ingredients that have been tested for their ability to supply the penis with the blood needed for a quality erection.

One example is Male Extra, a well-thought-out blend of ingredients that gets straight to the point and does what it’s supposed to do. (Read our Male Extra test for more information).

Extenders for penis enlargement

cylindrical dynamometerSince time immemorial, men have guessed that the traction exerted on the penis eventually had a noticeable effect on its size.

Using rudimentary materials, many ancient tribes built devices which, when “worn” on their penises all day long, eventually increased their size.
Today, these devices are known as extenders, and are manufactured under medical supervision to calculate the tensile force required to enlarge the penis.

It’s important to remember, however, that penile tissue is still fragile and that you need to take it easy to see results.

This method is based on the phenomenon of duplication of stretched cells. A case in point are the “giraffe women” of Padaung, Burma: for more information, see this article on Wikipedia.

See the TOP 3 analyses of penis extenders:

Penis enlargement through physical exercise

The human body is made up of muscles, ligaments and skin, all of which can change with exercise.

A body that trains is a healthy, slender body that ensures a certain level of comfort for its owner.

The penis, being an integral part of the human body, must also benefit from physical exercise to improve not only its performance but also its appearance.

A well-thought-out series of exercises for the penis helps to give it a healthy, lively appearance, and the principle is very simple: blood circulation, once again.
Regular but well-measured massages ensure that the penis has a lively skin and veins that are relaxed and clear enough to guarantee the passage of the blood flow needed to fill the whole penis.

Some natural methods even claim to enlarge the penis just by applying a few maneuvers on a daily basis.

Plastic surgery to repair or enlarge the penis

Penis enlargement surgeryAs a last resort, surgery remains the most expensive solution, with considerable risks.

For obvious reasons, it is rarely chosen by the patient. It is generally recommended and validated by a doctor.

Plastic surgery (as the name suggests) is used for cosmetic changes, whereas reconstructive surgery is more in-depth.

It should be remembered here that reconstructive surgery is covered by social security (recommended by a doctor), whereas plastic surgery is not.

Tips for penis enlargement!

When you can’t get over an obstacle, you’d better get around it!

An adage that always comes in handy when it comes to other methods of penis enlargement.

It’s no coincidence that women who want to lose weight are advised to wear black or vertically striped clothing to accentuate the illusion of a slimmer waist! These are solutions to worries that are generally psychological in nature.

It’s common for people who are already within the norm but who are still not satisfied. It’s also a way of being patient and prepared until the desired size is achieved, with well-chosen treatments.

When it comes to penis size, such tricks also exist, and they work!

Here are just a few:

  • Shave the pubis completely.
    Removing all the hair around the penis gives you a clearer idea of its shape and size. Many people thought they had a small penis until the day they shaved their pubis! Surprise: centimetres were well hidden!
  • Lose weight to make your penis stand out.
    Yes, a pendulous belly does affect the appearance of the penis, making it look smaller. If a man can eliminate excess belly fat, the health and shape of the penis will improve dramatically. Not only is it visible, it also boosts performance!
  • Opt for sexual positions that mathematically make your partner feel every inch of your penis!
  • … and much, much more! If you come across any tips, please share them with us.

In short, we all come up with tips to improve our daily sex lives. And don’t hesitate to take advantage of them!
