Is Penis Enlargement Possible?

Let’s talk about penis enlargement, or (to put it bluntly) how to make your dick bigger. I’m going to cover what’s true and what’s just wishful thinking about male enhancement products and techniques, and what is deceptive marketing designed to bilk you out of your credit card digits.

I’ve read a huge number of scientific studies. I’ve interviewed Urologists. I’ve spent time on dozens of Reddit groups, and online communities devoted to Jelqing and penis enlargement. I’ve gone ahead and purchased about a dozen penis enlargement products, such as the Bathmate and VigRX Plus. And I have also conducted my own study by surveying a group of more than a thousand men about their experiences and results with penis enlargement techniques, devices and pills.

And I’m going to share everything I learned right here.

Jelqing is a term used for a technique of stretching your penis. The basic Jelqing technique is to make a circle with your fingers around the base of your penis and then stroke towards the head without going over the head itself. That’s important, because you could easily injure yourself if you pass over the head of the penis with force.

Some techniques involve closing a circle around the base with one hand using the other hand to stroke and stretch towards the head. Some are the opposite. Some guides tell you have to be semi-erect first, but not fully erect. And there are about a thousand variations on these basic strokes.

Before I get into that, let’s get to the question at hand (so to speak): does Jelqing actually work? Well, its complicated (sorry). Here’s everything I’ve learned and I’ll let you decide.

First, I bought a bunch of these programs and they’re are all largely the same.

Second, I had a conversation with the owner of one of the most popular penis enlargement guides on the internet. And this guy is a multi, multi-millionaire from selling penis enlargement stuff. And one of the impressive things about his particular program are the testimonials, and there are lots of them. And a bunch of videos for men who used the program and got great results. These videos are pretty heartfelt, and they’re pretty convincing.

So I asked him point blank: “Are these guys real or did you script these?” Now, obviously I shouldn’t tell you what he said because it was confidential, but it led me to believe that a lot of the “true stories” and before-and-after pictures that you’ve seen all over the internet are most likely manufactured.

Male Enhancement

Third, urologists, will tell you the penis enlargement is bullshit – except recently a few doctors have gotten into the game, too. There is money to be made and there are therapies like the P-shot, ultrasonic treatments, and stretching devices. They’re being sold as penis enlargement by doctors. But if you ask those doctors point blank they will have to tell you the truth: these treatments do not make your dick bigger.

They’re useful treatments for Peyronie’s disease, which is a curvature of the penis, or for erectile dysfunction. They may increase blood flow which can give you a harder erection (which is great by the way). And that means that you haven’t actually grown, but rather your penis is just as big as it can get, because its fuller instead of partially empty when erect.

Now, if you’re 25 you already get rock hard erections, and these treatments are going to do nothing for you. But if you’re 65 and you want a little more pressure in the hose, these treatments do work – but honestly, so will Viagara or Cialis.

Anyway, let’s go over my own study where thousands of men told me about their experiences and their results with Jelqing. So a majority said no, they didn’t get results, which is what I expected. But here’s where things get weird. A small percentage of them said that they did grow.

Now the bad news is, the vast majority of these guys said it was only by about half an inch. I think what most likely is happening is that they were stretching the suspensory ligament, so the penis isn’t actually growing, but is getting pulled out of the body more. The consequences of this is a lowering of the angle of erection, which may or may not be a good trade off since a higher angle of erection is more correlated with pleasure for women during intercourse than size is.

But, most of the men said that their flaccid length did improve. If you’re a grower but not a shower, as they say, and your issue is locker room embarrassment in front of the other guys when you’re limp, Jelqing might be the thing for you. And I will tell you that as a guy who’s not that big, and who is a grower and not a shower, when I was younger my dick size did make me crazy insecure. And it was incredibly emasculating and embarrassing to have a small dick in the locker room. And while I’ve gotten over that and so should you, I totally get it if an increase in flacid length is important to you. From everything that I’ve researched Jelqing is gonna work for that so that is good news.

Okay, so this last bit is interesting, because that leaves the less than 1% of outliers who told me that after Jelqing or using stretching devices they actually grew significantly, by more than an inch. Wishful thinking? Lying? Did it work? Well I can’t know for sure.

Science says no. And personally I come down on the side of it being BS. After years of counseling men on highly emotional issues, I can tell you humans have an unbelievable ability for self-deception. So if you’re desperate to grow your dick, here’s another thing that is worth considering. As I said, I purchased a bunch of these programs that advertise online. I had a research assistant go through them, pull out all the BS, the filler, and the case studies, and condense it down to just the techniques that they all agree on.

Penis Enlargement and Male Enhancement

One of the things that really struck me was how much time and effort this shit takes. Some of the programs say as little as 20 minutes a day, but then you get the program and it includes 40 minutes of warm ups prior, and then 20 minutes of Jelqing, and then 10 more minutes of stuff you must do afterwards.

There are big warnings: don’t skip the warm up or you could injure yourself. The part about injury at least, is true. Several Urologists have told me that they often see men who have injured their penis’s from Jelqing. But the point is, maybe so few men get good results because so few men can take that time out of their lives. Maybe, this stuff works. It’s only retired guys or guys living on welfare who live alone that can spend their days stretching their dick for months, and then you know they’re the only ones that got the results and that’s why it’s a small percentage.

Maybe. My personal opinion is that the reason that these programs tell you that you have to do all this stuff for such long periods of time is simply that they know that most men won’t stick with it. They add complexities, like you have to be 65% erect or it won’t work. If you get more erect you have to stop, and wait until you calm down. Or if you don’t get erect enough, you have to stop and get yourself a little more aroused.

So this shit can be difficult. And then they know that most men won’t ask for a refund even though they didn’t get results, if they believe that it was their fault because they didn’t follow the program. So they make it intentionally near impossible for most men to follow. That might sound cynical but I know a lot about these guys and how they market their products, and I have a good reason to be cynical.

But if you’re still determined to try out some of those enlargement programs, stretching devices, weights, and all that stuff, I can’t tell you with 100% certainty that it won’t work for you. But my honest assessment is that it won’t, and that the hours you spent on this are something you will regret when you’re 85 and looking back on how you spent your days. And also these efforts will actually underscore your own sense of inferiority and inadequacy in your own subconscious mind. So I hope you make a better choice.

Top 5 Health Tips for Men Over 40

As much as we may hate admitting it, we’re all getting older. And if you’re like many others, you may be noticing a change in the way your body looks and responds to what you do to it.

Those of you who know what I’m talking about will recognize that those days of eating whatever, whenever, and how much of what you wanted are long gone, and your body will probably be a lot more stubborn when it comes to change these days.

And speaking of stubborn, the weight doesn’t seem to come off nearly easily as it used to. Just doing moderate exercise and a change in diet doesn’t seem to cut it anymore.

Keeping in shape at any age can be a challenge, but once we get into middle-aged territory, things really begin to slow down and we need to put in that much more effort to maintain and improve our fitness.

Here are five easy-to-remeber lifestyle changes any man can make to get back into shape and on the road to fitness.

1. Adopt a Healthy Diet

It goes without saying that the more you practice a healthy lifestyle the more your body stays healthy. At this age when your body’s tissues and muscles start to lose tone, you need to take in more nutrition to help you bolster up your immune system as well as strengthen and protect your bones.

Proteins are a must to help your body since muscles are required for exercise, so get plenty of lean meat, fish, and poultry. Also make fresh fruits and vegetables your habit, whether in a smoothie, or eat them raw, and you should have a zeal for salads.

The importance of water can’t be ignored in the quest for a healthy lifestyle. Water hydrates your body’s organs and keeps them healthy all throughout the day. A good habit to help you achieve this is always having a water bottle with you all times.

2. Regular Exercise

Training your body with exercise helps your body in building muscle, maintaining body composition, and keeps your bones stronger. You don’t actually have to do the strenuous exercises (such as weight lifting) every day. Rather, you can substitute that with morning runs/jogs, squats, planks and more healthy fitness exercises.

Maintaining regular exercises gives you the added advantage of counteracting the complications associated with aging.

3. You have to get enough sleep

As year 40 approaches, your body hormones start to change due to increased stress levels, fatigue, and due to the fact that your muscles and tissues become weaker. Failure to get enough sleep may lower your immunity and that’s why you are advised to get 8-9 hours of sleep every day.

Avoid over-dependency on alarms and train your body to wake up naturally at a specific time. Sleep will reduce your stress level and help you recover from the day’s extreme exercises. As a result, your mornings will be full of life – which is something that’s very important at this age.

4. Relax your body

The amount of fatigue and stress levels associated with people over 40 demands a lot of body relaxation. There are a lot of ways to achieve relaxation: you can meditate, you can hang out with friends, take walks in parks or elsewhere in nature, or you can commit to regular exercise. All these options and more will be key to relaxing your body, and that’s why you’re encouraged to make an habit of getting involved with any one of them on a daily basis.

5. Increase your testosterone levels

For men, checking and maintaining a healthy level of testosterone will be key in your 40’s. Not only will your testosterone levels boost your libido, it fights against erectile dysfunction, and improves fertility and your sperm quality.

When added all together, maintaining healthy testosterone levels will give you and your partner quality bedtime, which at this age is vital to any relationship and shouldn’t be ignored. It’s a known fact that orgasms reduce stress levels as well – and for the doubters, you should try it and thank me later!

Top 4 Ways For Coping with Stress at the Office

Work-related stress is probably one of the leading causes of mental health issues, as shown by APA’s Stress in America survey, where most participants rated work as the main source of their chronic stress.

The worst part is that there’s very little that can be done about it. There is a high-opportunity cost associated with starting a new job since it can potentially uproot your life – and even then, there’s no guarantee that things will be any better.

However, chronic stress can be very crippling and overwhelming. Stress can make you gain weight and lead to depression and a host of other physical and mental health issues. Once it gets bad, it is very easy to fall into a downward spiral.

So if we can’t eliminate stress by getting a new job, there should be ways to handle that stress. As people handle stress very differently, there are a myriad of ways people cope with it.

Some methods include:

1. Getting mental health support

Many organizations and businesses have recently started realizing the value of the mental health for their employees’ productivity. So, your employer may have solutions in place to help you get the resources you need to deal with stress.

It’s best to ask your employer what options they have in place. You may be able to get free counseling or therapy sessions, and if the stress is very crippling, your employers may make arrangements made for you to have more flexible working (such as working from home for some time).

2. Lead a healthy lifestyle

This is an obvious tip, but leading a healthy lifestyle can drastically reduce your risk. Eating fried, unhealthy foods can cause inflammation in the body and affect your mood.

Also, exercising regularly increases your dopamine levels, which can reduce stress. From a psychological perspective, a healthy lifestyle can distract you from your problems and potentially help you expand your social circle.

Avoid beverages like coffee or energy drinks because they can make you feel restless and worsen your stress levels.

3. Try out relaxation techniques

Not everyone has generous employers and therapy can be expensive. In this case you can try alternative methods like meditation.

Meditation has been linked extensively to increased focus, better sleep, improved breathing and reduced stress levels. The best part? You can do it in minutes.

Studies have shown that even as little as 5 minutes a day can vastly improve your memory and stress levels.  You can find meditation apps and guides for free.

Here are some basic relaxation techniques.

4. Confront your stressors

This is probably the hardest part, since you have very little control. For most people, being surrounded by toxic colleagues is the sole cause of stress.

In this case, you should make an active choice to cut them off or talk to your employer to see if there could be an arrangement to limit your contact with them.

5 Key Benefits of Yoga for Men

There are many practices people do for relaxation, mental improvement and even concentration. Yoga is one of the practices and comes with a dozen benefits for both men and women.

Yoga is a practice that involves breathing, meditation and body postures. All these are combined in one practice.

There are many yoga styles and all of them target to improve the mind, breathing and strengthening of body muscles. You can learn yoga online and there are many trainers around the world who can help you enjoy the benefits of yoga.

Below is a brief discussion of five yoga benefits for men.

1. Extends the range of motion

As mentioned above, yoga involves a wide range of body postures. We all know that men have certain muscles that are improved by exercises at the gym.

These muscles include abdomen, shoulders, glutes and even hamstrings. Certain yoga practices can train these muscles through various motions and postures.

When practicing yoga you tend to use your natural body weight and resistance to build strong and lean muscles. You also lengthen the muscles and that improves blood flow.

With an increased flow of circulation, there is more oxygen getting to the muscles, and that helps them to grow and recover faster between workouts.

2. Improves breathing

Yoga involves breathing techniques that help to improves your lung capacity. Many yoga practices focus on breathing in and out. It helps you to get in more air.

This is very good in strengthening lung muscles and increasing the capacity of the lungs. This helps you to get in more oxygen which is evenly distributed in the body.

With yoga, you can enjoy deeper breaths, which is highly essential in increasing energy and vitality during workouts and daily activities.

3. Helps in relaxation

Unlike yoga, many exercises will make your body active but can’t help you relax. Yoga helps your body to take a break, keep your mind and body active, and also encourages the smooth flow of blood.

This makes you feel good, as energy is well distributed in the body. During yoga practices you concentrate on your breathing or specific body postures. This helps your mind and body muscles to relax and recover, getting you ready for the next activity.

4. Improves men’s sex life

Yoga is helpful in improving your sexual performance. It improves blood flow to the genital area, and that’s good for stronger erections.

On top of that, it helps to get rid of toxins that can affect your performance. More so, with yoga men can deal with anxiety, which is a main concern when it comes to sex life.

5. Improves body and mind balance

Yoga focuses on improving concentration. When you focus on your breathing while meditating you improve your concentration, and that is a good thing for the mind.

On top of that, yoga has proved to improve the balance of the body by helping muscles to support each other equally. This is a result of various body postures and other yoga techniques.

Final thoughts

Yoga is a good practice that you should include in your exercise routine. It helps to improve breathing, concentration and even building stronger muscles. It is a good practice for men, women and even children.

So go ahead, give yoga a try, and you will enjoy all the above benefits for men.
