Can This Device Lengthen Your Penis by One-Third?
You've seen the evil looking devices at the back of the girlie magazines - tubes that use suction, claiming to extend the length of your penis. Crazy, right? Well, a scientific study released today shows that one such device the "Andro-Penis" actually does increase your penis size by as much as one third.
The study, which took place at San Giovanni Battista Hospital in Turin, Italy, followed 21 patients who used the extender device every day for 6 months. Five patients failed to complete the course for various reasons, including "pain and penile bruising". Ouch!
But the patients that did complete the course extended their penis size by 36 percent. The men in the study started out with an average flaccid penis length of 2.82 inches, which increased to 3.72 inches a year later. No significant increase in girth was reported.
The Andro-Penis device consists of a plastic ring, two extender rods, and a silicon band to hold the penis in place. The study participants were told to increase the traction from 600 grams in the first month to up to 1,200 grams in month six. Their progress was then checked for another six months.
The device applies a traction force on the penis over continuous periods of time. Such traction creates an adaptative reaction of the penile tissue components at a structural level, with an increase in cellular multiplication.
Here's how the Andro-Penis website describes the method:
If you stretch something over a large time period, your body will adjust to the stretching and this, in men?s case, results in a better sized penis. There are many examples of this kind of tissue adjustments, but the most common one is the pregnancy of a woman. A lot of people look at it as a miracle because it is amazing how the skin tissue can expand in that way for over 9 months. It is proved by clinical studies that a high percentage of the people nowadays that use the penis enlargement by traction technique were able to gain length and girth in their penises by stretching the tissue.
"Our study showed that the penile extender device produces an effective and durable lengthening of the penis, both in the flaccid and stretched state," said consultant urologist Dr. Paolo Gontero. "If these results are confirmed by further research, we propose that the device should be used as a first-line treatment option for men seeking a penile lengthening procedure."
The research was reported today in British Journal of Urology International.
