If you’ve found this page, I’m guessing you have already done some preliminary research on penis extenders. You know that they are one of the few scientifically-backed methods (see studies here, here and here) for extending the size of your penis.
The right device can tack on a couple of inches to your length. That can be life-changing.
Of course, the wrong device can result in some serious problems—even permanent injury to your member. Not cool.
So your first step to choosing a penis extender is to find one which offers you the quality design you need for safe, effective gains.
But that is not your only step. There are actually a few really great devices on the market, and each of them has different strengths. This is why some guys actually will end up investing in more than one.
In this guide, I am going to introduce you to the best penis extenders in different categories. Some of this is based on my personal experience. The rest is the result of extensive research.
Before I dive in though, I want to review a few basics with you, just in case you are still pretty new to the world of penile extenders.
What Are Penile Extenders?
First of all, here are the very basics.
A penis extender is a device you wear on your penis which exerts gentle traction on your member. If you wear it for several hours a day and do so conscientiously for a period of months, this will over time extend the length of your penis.
The basic design of a penis extender usually consists of bars or rods with two fastening points, one around the base, the other just in front of the glans. You adjust the device so that a light stretch is exerted, and then you just go on with whatever you would typically do with your day. The tension rods can be adjusted over time as you add length to your penis so that they continue to exert a gentle stretch.
It takes six months or more to get dramatic results with a penis extender. So you have to be patient. But it can change your life.
The best part is that the gains you get with a penis extender are yours forever. Contrast this with a penis pump, which only works briefly.
Are Penile Extenders Safe?
Are appropriately designed penis extenders safe? Definitely, so long as you are using them correctly. Are all penis extenders safe? No. There are some really dodgy products out there which you need to stay far, far away from.
What Should You Look For When Choosing?
So how can you tell a quality penis extender from an ineffectual or unsafe product?
Here are some guidelines:
- A reputable brand. Do not purchase a product from some fly-by-night company you have never heard of and cannot learn anything about. Vague “About” pages, missing contact information, and unrealistic promises are all red flags. Buy from a company that is transparent, does not make promises which are too good to be true, and which has positive (but believable) reviews.
- Medical endorsements (that are real). If reputable medical professionals have endorsed a particular device, that is a great sign. Just make sure that you actually look up the doctors who are named to confirm that they are real people with actual credentials. Scientific studies highlighting the benefits of a device are also great, but keep in mind that commercial interests can skew how a study is performed and how the results are interpreted.
- Conforms to important regulations. Shop for a device which meets the strict quality control protocols set forth by the FDA and other key regulatory bodies.
- High-quality materials. Penis extenders made of tough materials will stand the test of time. Since you will be wearing the device for months, you need one which is not going to break down and become unusable. This is also important for reasons of safety. The best devices use sturdy medical-grade materials.
- A comfortable design. The importance of comfort cannot be overstated with a device that you will be wearing for hours a day. If you do not pick an extender which is comfortable to wear, you may give up long before you ever see the results you are aiming for.
- Extra attachments, bonus materials, and other freebies. The best penis extenders often include a lot of great extra features for comfort and convenience. You might for example get a carrying case, moisturizer, DVDs, and so on. All of these add value to your purchase.
- A strong warranty. Hopefully your penis extender will never break, but even high quality devices sometimes fail. Look for an extender which is backed by a solid warranty.
How To Get The Most Out Of Your Investment
Now you know how to choose the right device we hope you have had the chance to learn even more about how penile extenders work and what they can do for you.
But as I mentioned earlier, even with a high quality extender, you might not get the results you are looking for, and may even injure yourself, if you are not following best practices.
So here are some tips for safety and efficacy to help you get the most out of your purchase:
- Start out by jelqing or using a penis pump (like Penomet) to increase blood flow before you use your penis extender. This can help you achieve results faster, and may also reduce the likelihood of injury. If you use a penis pump, make sure you are not at a full erection when you put on your extender.
- Consider combining extenders for better results. For example, you can switch on and off between SizeGenetics and PHALLOSAN® Forte during the day, or you can wear SizeGenetics during the day and PHALLOSAN® Forte while you are sleeping. That way you will get the best increases in both length and girth. We call this practice PhalloGenetics.
- Wear the device(s) you choose for at least one hour a day. It is better to aim for four or five, but start small, and increase the time gradually as you get more and more comfortable.
- Be sure to wear your penis extender every day, and do it for four months or more before you try to judge the results. While you may start seeing improvements inside a few weeks, typically you are not going to see the really dramatic results until you have gone four months or longer. It took me about four months to add two inches.
Choose the Best Device for Your Needs and You Should See Outstanding Results With Consistent Use
Lets be honest, a quality penis extender is not cheap; it is going to run you at least a couple hundred bucks. But most guys I have known who have made that investment discovered it was a life changing one.
So ask yourself what is most important to you in a penis extender.
Do you want to save money? Get the top value? Make sure you have a solid warranty in place? Increase girth as well as length? You may even find that two penis extenders fit your needs and work great in combination to deliver the gains you are after.
Whichever device(s) you decide on, make a commitment now that you are going to wear the device daily for four months or more. Follow through on that commitment, and you could gain two or more inches in length and maybe even see some increase in girth as well.
As for the tremendous increase in self-esteem you can expect when you finally have the penis size you never imagined possible, that is something that can’t be measured in inches!
