Although it is something not commonly talked about, there are many men who are unsatisfied with the size of their penis. Because of this, there are a number of different options available to them, ranging from herbal pills and surgery to penis traction devices.
This latter option works on a theory that has been used by people for centuries to extend certain parts of their body – that is, by stretching the penis consistently, cells will divide, causing an increase in length overtime. In addition to increasing length, most men find that the penis girth also grows, due to the overall amount of tissue growth.
There are many products available on the market that are designed to lengthen the penis and of course, some are of better quality than others. It is vital that the consumer does some research into the different brands available to ensure that the manufacturer is reputable and well-established. It is also a good sign if the product has been doctor recommended and approved, and has favorable independent consumer reviews.
Whichever brand of penis traction device is used, they all work in a similar way. A plastic ring is placed around the base of the penis and then joined to a ‘holder’, also made of plastic, sometimes silicone, which attaches to the penis head. The metal rods that join these two parts are adjustable and provide different amounts of pressure, depending on the consumer’s choice. It is customary for these dynamic metal rods to be made of nickel, but because some men are allergic to this substance, certain companies, such as Andropenis, offer a product that uses gold.
While many men obtain good results from using a penis traction device, the one drawback is the cost – they can range in price from $100-$500 depending on the brand. However, unlike penis enhancement pills, the device is a one-time purchase, making it more cost effective in the long run. Another negative effect is that the device may be uncomfortable or cumbersome to wear. It is essential that it is used correctly and while some soreness and slight discomfort is to be expected, men should stop using the device if it is unbearable and, if they are unsure how to attach the product seek professional advice.
