Penis Stretching – Does it Work?

There are thousands of products on the market that claim to increase the length and girth of your penis, but do any of them actually work? Or are penis lengthening techniques just a modern day snake oil?

If you’re looking to increase the size of your penis, there is only one safe and effective way to accomplish those gains: penis stretching. There are three different ways to stretch your penis: extenders (also known as traction devices), vacuuming assisted devices, and stretching exercises.

The safest and most effective tool for increasing the size of your penis is the extender or penile traction device. These devices add a gentle stretching tension to the penis. When worn over an extended period of time (up to 12 hours a day, for a minimum of 6 weeks), these devices create micro tears in the tissues of the penis, similar to those that appear in muscles during exercise. The presence of these tears encourages the body to generate new cells and new tissue in the affected areas. Over time, this accumulation of new tissues can increase the length and girth of the penis.

Vacuum assisted devices, known colloquially as penis pumps, are another way to increase the size of the penis. These devices create a vacuum around the penis, drawing more blood into the penis. Not only can this result in harder and more pleasurable erections, the additional blood can encourage healthy cell growth in the penis. When used correctly, a vacuum assisted device can slowly increase the size of the penis.

Vacuum devices should be used carefully though. Air-assisted pumps can be ‘over pumped, ‘causing the small blood vessels in the penis to burst resulting in a soft, spongy erection that is often an unpleasant purple color. In extreme cases, it can require a trip to the doctor to treat. Water assisted pumps remove some of the danger of over pumping, but they should still be used with care.

Penis stretching exercises are, as their name suggests, a series of exercises designed to slowly increase the length and girth of the penis. These exercises are designed to stimulate the same cell growth that using a penis extender or penis pump can do, without the need for purchasing a device. They are mildly effective when performed on a regular basis, but cannot provide the same sort of results that a vacuum assisted device or penis extender would be able to accomplish. They can be a good way to maintain your current results if you are away from your penis stretching devices, though.


Penis stretching is possible, but the results take time. With constant use, you should see some results within 6 weeks. Studies have shown that, when using a penis extender, patients experience the best results while wearing the device for 10-12 hours a day for 24 weeks. For many average users, this isn’t a feasible schedule.   Just make sure that, whichever technique you choose, you follow all instructions and use the devices carefully.
