Penis Stretchers & Penile Traction Devices
Penis size has long been a source of anxiety for many men, even if it is unfounded. And while there are quick fixes like a penis pump and cock rings that will give you temporary results in an increased size and girth of your cock, items that provide permanent gains in penis size are few and far between. No one here is saying that you need to increase your length. It's not the size, its how you use it remember? But some men will still long to have more length and now there is actually an item that can help and give you permanent results! Say hello to a penis extender, the ultimate penis enlargement devices!
Enlarging your penis through penile stretching is not new by any means. Penile traction devices or penis extenders have been around for a long time. They were initially created as a post-penis enhancing operation tool to keep the penis stretched while it healed. It quickly became apparent that the device was actually having better results than the surgery itself, so of course, they started to sell the units on their end as a tool for penis enlargement.

For some reason, stretchers never really gained traction as a huge selling item, regardless of the fact that if you ask a man if he thinks he would like an extra inch downstairs, he will probably say yes! I think the reason for this is that these penis enlargement devices take time, effort and are definitely not a quick and easy fix. While not the quickest, they are still constantly called the best penis enlargement device. You will need to repeat the process every day for at least a few months to start seeing any results, and they are not the most comfortable items to wear… but more on that later. However, if you are committed to making penis gains, then penile stretching using an extender can really help you.
A penis extender or penile traction device is a unit that attaches to the base and head of a flaccid penis to slowly stretch it. After wearing the unit for prolonged periods of time, the penis will start to increase in length and, the best bit is that it will stay like that permanently. This is a non-invasive treatment that is actually proven to work. Unlike penis pills or cock creams, this is a treatment that has actually been studied and found to have a proven track record of increasing the length of the flaccid penis. And if the flaccid penis is longer, that makes for a longer erection too.
As you can already tell, these products are primarily used for the amazing results that they can have on the length of the user’s penis but they can actually be used for other reasons too.
Some users have found that over time their erections become stronger too due to the change in the cell structure of the penis. But, there are no studies (yet!) to prove that theory so it might be something to test for yourself. While others find that they also achieve a larger girth.
Another common use for a penis extender is actually to correct a curved penis and it is a popular treatment for those with Peyronie disease. As the penis is forced into a straight line while you are wearing the product, if you use the device for long enough, it can work to straighten out the curve of the penis.
A penis extender is a non-invasive penis enlargement device that is used to gradually increase the size of the penis over a long period of time. It works by applying a constant traction force to the corpora cavernosa of the penis. This results in a size adaptation of the penis as it stimulates the growth of the penile cells as well as the multiplication of the penis cells. The more pressure that is applied to the penis, the more the cells have to shift to compensate which is what leads to new cell production and tissue growth. Basically, the process of cytokinesis right there in your penis.
While this sounds complicated, the device itself is actually pretty simple. It consists of a plastic ring that sits at the base of the penis, a stretchy ring for the head of the penis and a rod down either side of the shaft which attaches the two rings together. These rods can be gradually lengthened to stretch the penis and increase the pressure as you grow.
Most penis extenders are designed to cater to most sizes but if you are already on the larger end of the penis spectrum, then you might find that these items are simply too small for you.
These items are designed to stretch so the rods are adjustable and can cater for most penis sizes up to 7 or 8 inches depending on the brand. But, it is important that you check out the specific measurements of the brand you are looking at to make sure it will work for you. And don’t forget to leave some room for growth! If the extender only just fits you know, there will be little room for any extra length.
If you are willing to pay a bit more, then you will also find there are sets which have different length rods so you can swap them out as you start to gain more length. The Jes Extender range has all you need for a whole lot of length.
You will find that different extenders will attach in different ways so it is important to follow the exact instructions of your particular product. However, there are some general guidelines that you can follow to make things a bit easier as these are products that can take a fair bit of practice to get on comfortably.
- Warm up your body
I recommend that you can your penis ready for action by either having a hot shower or using your hands to massage the area, just don’t get too excited! You need to be flaccid.
- Secure the device at the base of the penis
Get the device secure at the base of the penis and start out with the rods attached but at their shortest point. You want to start with them un-stretched.
- Secure the glans with the comfort strap
You then want to secure the strap that sits around the glans and ensure that this is nice and tight. If it is too loose, it will just pop up over the top of the penis when you try to apply any pressure with the rods.
- Attach the rods to the top strap
Now you can start to explore the stretch of the rods and find a good amount of pressure for you. Some rods will snap into place while others will need to be inserted into the security holes on the strap. The style of your device will determine whether you increase the rod length before or after attaching the two ends with the rods.
Keep in mind that this can be tricky to do and it may take some time to master. Start slow and be patient, it will get easier as you repeat the process.
Again this is something that the specific brand of your penis extender will provide instruction on but most men wear them for a period of 3 -6 hours every single day. 6 hours is the maximum amount of time these should be worn to prevent injury to your penis. For that reason, many men find that they will wear them under their clothes to work if their job is not one that requires a lot of movement. Others may need to wear them overnight.
Penis traction is a marathon, not a sprint so be prepared to wear these units every day for a long while. You will need to use the device for at least 2 months to have results but preferably for up to 6 to really get the most out of the item.
Most users won’t start to see any difference until about the 6-week mark, so hold tight! Just because it is a slow burn process, this doesn’t mean that it is not working. You just need to be patient and committed to the process to see any results from it.
This isn’t a miracle tool and if you are expecting to gain a whole lot of inches, think again. However, you can expect some definite obvious growth. A study published in the journal of the British Association of Urological Surgeons found that, on average, those that were using one of these devices for 4 hours a day over a 2-month period saw an increase in penis length of 0.67 inches. So if this is anything to go by, expecting an increase of an inch or so within 4 months may be possible.
At some point, you will find that you do reach a maximum amount of increased length and find that your progress stops. When this occurs, usually after a matter of 6 or so months, you can stop training your penis and just enjoy your results!
Yes, you read that right. The results from penile traction are permanent. This is due to the stretch creating new cells. And, these cells are permanent. Once you have them, they are there to stay.
So now that you definitely want one, there are a few things to know before you go out buying one. You will find that there is a pretty wide price range for these types of products. From as little as $40 all the up to the $300s. And there is a reason for that. The cheapest options are going to be very basic with only one size option for the rods, and very little in the way of comfort too.
Now you might think that comfort is not so important, but once you have had a penis extender on for a few hours a day, I think you will be changing your mind. You need to wear these for a long period of time and the skin on your penis is delicate but also sensitive. Without a cushioned comfort pad, these can become very uncomfortable items very quickly.
If you are serious about increasing your penis size I recommend you choose a unit that has multiple rod sizes or extenders, replaceable parts in case something breaks and definitely a unit that comes with some cushioning for your favorite body part!
So long as you follow the instructions, you should be fine, but the real answer to this question is yes. With overuse, a cock stretcher is a device that can cause temporary or long term damage if used incorrectly.
Some of the issues that a penis extender may cause are:
- Damage to the skin
- Damage to the blood vessels
- Nerve damage
- Tissue damage
- Impairment of erection function
And the way to avoid any of this is to follow the instructions of your particular unit and to make sure you are paying attention to how it feels while you are wearing it. If you start to feel any new uncomfortable sensations, then you should remove it and let your body rest. As you have to wear it so often it will become very easy to identify if something isn’t feeling right.
And always follow the time restrictions for your device. It may be tempting to overdo it so you can see results faster, but that’s not how it works. If you keep it on too long you are likely to cause damage to your body and actually slow down the process. Slow and steady wins the race remember?! And, if you are going to commit to a product that requires a lot of time to work, you might as well just do it properly and reap the awesome results. Once you have completed your daily stretching, it is very important to keep up with personal hygiene by cleaning your device with an anti-bacterial toy cleaner.
The most important thing to remember is that this is a marathon, not a sprint and you really need to consider it part of a training system for your penis. No instant results here sorry guys! But, with patient and commitment, this is an item that will provide you with real, permanent gains in your penis size.
