The practice of male enhancement has been happening for centuries, stretching as far back as 2,000 years ago with African tribes.
Yet the fruits of this fascination have only come into realisation in the last 20-30 years with the development of medically backed penis traction devices, historically support penis exercise programmes and surgical procedures.
For men looking to enlarge the penis 2,000 years ago, all they could look forward to was manual methods of stretching the penis with hanging weights attached to their scrotum or having a slit cut down their shaft.
The most advanced method for penis enlargement then was used by Polynesian men who used a woven sleeve – similar to a Chinese finger trap – to increase penis length. Other than that, the types of instruments used to encourage penis growth were risky and extremely hazardous.
Luckily during the century alternative methods have come into practice. Developments that have transformed these desires for a thicker longer penis, into real credible results: jelqing, surgery and penis traction devices.
First used in the Middle East as a bonding exercise between father and son (as they helped them prepare for a sexual relationship), jelqing is a simple workout which is now globally established amongst men for inducing increased stamina and a longer, thicker penis.
Known to typically take 30 minutes to do, jelqing consists of up to 200 movements that when completed will offer users a penis enlargement of 1.4 inches in length and 1 inch in girth.
Widely popular in America since the 1980’s, there are commonly 3 types of penis enlargement surgery: penile injection, ligament cutting and inflatable implants.
Penile injection: the insertion of cells from the body into the shaft of your penis.
Ligament cutting: the basal ligament of the penis is cut. Unfortunately although this can lead to a penile length increase of 2 inches, the penis is now unable to stand erect.
Inflatable implants: implants replace the corpora cavernosa (the part of the penis that fills with blood during erections) and is manually inflated.
Though all highly recommended each of these surgeries does come with their own risks. From penis deformations, scarring and an inability to perform sexually; ligament cutting is particularly damaging as it can prevent your penis from standing erect.
First patented in 1911, some modern penis enlargement devices are medically backed to CE standards and are clinically proven to stimulate the reproduction of new tissue cells within the penis.
Some penis stretching devices are able to offer men results within 7 days, with a 30% increase being possible within 24 weeks. In addition, results from penis stretching devices tend to be permanent.

With such a multitude of methods widely available for use, male enhancement has come a long way since its first depictions in cave painting in 440BC.
Today you can achieve the penis size you want without having to run the risk of damaging your penis or your health. Instead there are a variety of safe ways to enlarge the penis by such methods as the penis traction device as well as through penis exercises.
