A review of medical literature has revealed that some non-surgical methods to increase penis size do actually work – but some result in disappointment. A study published in the journal of British Association of Urological Surgeons found that traction methods were most effective in extending length. However it found that surgical procedures can be dangerous and have an ‘unacceptably high’ rate of complications. The study was conducted by Italian scientists Marco Ordera and Paolo Gontero at the University of Turin. The pair examined literature on both surgical and non-surgical methods for so called ‘male enhancement’ and found ten relevant studies. Half reported on surgical techniques performed on 121 men, while the others discussed non-invasive methods used by 109 men.
One study of the traction method reported an average increase of 1. 8cm while in a flaccid state. Another reported that the penis measured an extra 2. 3cm on average when flaccid and 1. However to achieve these results the men had to follow an arduous regime which involved six hours of traction a day for four months in the first example, and four hours for six months in the second. Other methods the scientists investigated included a ‘penis pump’ which uses a vacuum to stretch the organ.
