Penis Size Myths and Facts

Myths about Penis Size

As long as men have existed there have been myths regarding the size of the penis and how that relates to a man’s masculinity. Many of these myths have morphed into old wives tales that still permeate societies all over Myths about Penis Sizethe world. It would be laughable if it weren’t for the fact that so many men are concerned about the size of their packages. To give you an idea of what we’re talking about we’ll present some of those myths here as well as a couple of facts you may not be aware of.

Let’s begin with a few of the myths:

  • Index Finger/Thumb Myth – One of the older myths regarding penis size comes by way of the index finger and thumb. It is said that if a man lays his hand flat on the table with fingers stretched out in moral position, a measurement of the distance between the tip of the index finger and thumb would be the same as the length of the penis. The myth doesn’t say whether that length would be in the flaccid or erect state, but it matters not either way. It’s just not true.
  • Size of the Feet – Another similar myth states that the size of a man’s feet in relation to its overall height is indicative of the size of his penis. As the myth goes, the larger the feet are in proportion to height the larger the penis will be in the erect state. This myth has also never proven to be true.
  • Masturbation and Penis Size – In the old days it was not uncommon for parents and doctors to tell pre-teen boys that excessive masturbation could reduce penis size. This was probably just a way to try to discourage them from practicing self pleasure. As it turns out, excessive masturbation has no affect on penis size unless a boy engages in it so often and so aggressively as to cause himself permanent physical injury.

FactsSome Scientific Facts

  • Testosterone Levels – It’s been believed for some time that prenatal testosterone levels will have an effect on male growth in several ways. Last year a study from Asia lent credence to this fact specifically as it relates to penis size. Researchers found a definite correlation between the length of a man’s ring finger in relation to his index finger, and the size of his penis. It’s believed that increased levels of prenatal testosterone are directly responsible for the size of both.
  • Growth During Puberty – Science has established that the growth of the penis and scrotum follows a pretty standard pattern among normal, healthy boys. For most boys the penis will begin to get larger before the scrotum, usually between 10 and 12 years old. The length of the penis will increase by about .8″ per year between the ages of 10 and 15. From there growth slows down to .5″ or less until age 18 or 19.
  • Penis Enlargement – The length and girth of the male penis can be increased through a process known as traction. This process has been used for centuries to lengthen shortened limbs, produce extra skin necessary for grafting, and elongate various parts of the body for cosmetic purposes.

What You Can Do

Men who are unsatisfied with the size of their penis can do something about it with the use of enlargement device. Such devices utilize either suction or traction as the main mechanism to add length and girth. I recommend traction over suction for two reasons:

The idea of traction, which is what the Quick Extender Pro is based on, is to apply a gentle but steady pulling on the penis in order to stretch the tissue. This stretching encourages the body to produce more tissue to fill in the gaps, thereby increasing size. Traction takes advantage of the body’s natural repair mechanisms; the same mechanisms that enable bodybuilders to increase muscle mass through intense exercise.

In order for traction to be efficient, productive, and comfortable all the same time, the device used must be designed to work slowly, over time, rather than trying to finish the job too quickly. A device that stresses speed is one that tends to pull too hard, cause pain, and potentially cause injury.

A device like the Quick Extender Pro applies a more gentle pressure over a longer period of time. Most men can begin to see measurable results in 4 to 5 weeks; an inch or more can be achieved over 3 to 6 months.

Now that you know some of the myths and facts about penis size it’s up to you to decide whether or not you are comfortable with your current package. If so, enjoy! If not, consider doing something about it using a penis enlargement device.
