Since I’m more interested in length over girth gains, after warming up with the rice sock, Big Al assigns 100 reps of the “Side-to-Side Stretch.” In a standing position, I grab my flaccid penis right below the head (avoiding the glans) and pull down. Maintaining that tension, I proceed to pull it left and right, like a ticking grandfather cock. The goal is to eventually reach 2,000 reps, but after 100, my dick is sufficiently fatigued.
Thankfully, I’ve avoided the emergency room. After six weeks of daily rice socks and side-side-stretching, my penis has, in fact, lengthened. I’m embarrassed to admit how satisfying it felt to notch six inches on my ruler. And I’m confident those increases would continue if I stuck with Big Al, but I think I’ll stop here. After all, as Nelson explains, the average penis is 5.16 inches, so at just over 6, I’m already in the 70th percentile. “You’re an inch bigger than average and thick,” he says. “Holy shit, what more do you want?”
Penis size can be a sensitive issue for many men. Surgery, pills, traction devices, and injections are all methods that have been used to try to enlarge penis size, but these methods are generally only useful for men who have had penile trauma or a medical disorder affecting the function of the penis. A man's penis has important functions and a complex anatomy, which means that enlargement is tricky—and risky.
From an anatomical perspective, not all penises are the same. Take for example the tunica albuginea, which is the tissue surrounding the penis just underneath the skin. The tunica is also an extension of the pelvic floor muscles. Most men have two layers of tunica, some have only one, while others have three. It’s also been speculated that men who practice penis exercises may gain length and girth quicker or slower depending on the number of tunica layers.
Sure, you may encounter partners who may be turned off by that, as with any physical or sexual preference. But you’ll also find partners who are turned on by it, or who don’t care either way. It’s all about finding the right sexual compatibility with the right partner — and that might include adding more oral stimulation, manual stimulation, sex toys, and so on. It's 100% entirely possible to have an amazing sex life with any size penis (or, you know, none at all).
