Permanent non-surgical elongation of the adult penis

  • International institute of Holistic Medicine


A review of medical and psychological literature reveals that the most common concern among males is inadequate penis size. There has been, to this date, very little published in the medical literature on the subject of penis size. Current studies done on 7 adult males replicated those reported in England by Dr. Brian Richards. In the 7 males there was an average increased length in the penis of 0.67 inches, and an average circumference increase of 0.5 inches. The technique is worth considering in those individuals who have psychological concerns about penis adequacy.
... The collection and reporting of scientific data has been used to address the concerns of males regarding their normality (Jamison & Gebhard, 1988 ), particularly in response to increased reported dissatisfaction with phallus dimensions and request for surgical enhancement (da Ros et al., 1994); to investigate the relation between condom failure and penile dimensions (Han, Park, Lee, & Choi, 1999; Richters, This article was received, reviewed, and accepted for publication under the editorship of Richard Green. 1 Family and Child Psychology Research Centre, City University, London, England. 2 To whom correspondence should be addressed at Department of Primary Care and Population Sciences, University College and Royal Free School of Medicine, Rowland Hill Street, London NW3 2PF, England; e-mail: Gerofi, & Donovan, 1995; Tovey & Bonell, 1991 ); to evaluate the effectiveness of permanent elongation of the penis (Shealy, Cady, & Cox, 1995 ); to study the effects of aging on longitudinal deformation (Bondil, Costa, Daures, Louis, & Navratil, 1992); and to estimate sexual arousal among offenders in a sexual behavior clinic (Furr, 1991). The penis has been measured using a variety of methods and a wide range of dimensions has been reported. ...
... A popular method of measurement is stretching of the flaccid penis. The stretched length has been shown to be highly predictive of the erect length (Schonfield & Beebe, 1942; Shealy et al., 1995; Wessells et al., 1995). The strong correlation between stretched length and erect length has led to the stretching method being used where it is not felt appropriate to measure the penis erect or self measurement is not favored. ...

Both physiological and self-measurement methods have been employed to collect data on the dimensions of the erect penis. However, self-measurement using paper strips has often been favored as a less intrusive and time-consuming method, despite the recognition of the increased chance of bias through exaggeration. The current study aimed to establish the test-retest reliability of measurement of the erect penis using paper strips in a sample of 312 gay men. The men were issued with color-coded measuring strips printed with instructions but no calibrations, and asked to measure both the length and circumference of their partners' erect penis. Three months later they were asked to repeat these measures. Mean length on first measurement was 15.3 cm and 15.2 cm on second measurement. Mean girth at first measurement was 12.5 cm and 12.6 cm at second measurement. Test-retest reliability of measurement was found to be moderately low at r = .60 for length and r = .53 for girth. No relation was found between measurement discrepancy and the age, social class, education, ethnicity, or employment status of the partner taking the measurements. Although self-measurement strips are both convenient and acceptable, and widely reported in the literature, they only have moderate test-retest reliability. This may be due to both natural variability in penis size within subjects over time and unreliability of the measurement method.
... Other than surgery, only two other reports of successful penis enlargement have been located. 5,6 The current study was undertaken when one of the authors (JP) reported that male patients had reported spontaneously that they had noticed penis growth after taking vitamin D 3 for immune enhancing benefits. ...

Fourteen adult men volunteered to participate in an experiment to evaluate the potential for penile growth as a result of taking 50,000 units of vitamin D 3 and 100 mcg of vitamin K 2 daily. Penis length increased an average of 0.46 inches and circumference increased an average of 0.523 inches, both statistically significant. These results are comparable to those obtained with use of a vacuum pump or with surgical augmentation. We suggest that men interested in penis augmentation consider this much simpler and safer approach when they are interested in penis enlargement. Introduction:
