Economist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz recently found that men search Google for “how to make my penis bigger” more than any other phrase. He also concluded that “The degree of a man’s worry about his genitals is profound...male body insecurity is not far behind female body insecurity.” After all the searching, what can men do to improve penile insecurity?
A man’s sense of identity is often defined by his penis. Consider these observations:
Most men think they have a small penis - when in fact they are most likely average or even above the average size. Despite reality, men are constantly searching for easy ways to improve their penis size. They want to believe that there is a pill or herbal supplement that magically makes the penis grow. Reality check: if there were an effective and safe means to increase penile size with a pill, you would know about it already. You can pretty much bet that the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies would be making it.
The Internet is overrun with male “sexual enhancement” herbal supplements products that claim to increase one’s penis size. They capitalize on male insecurity, which has created a huge market for these products, with hordes of men willing to pay top dollar for products that have misleading claims and are often mislabeled, contaminated and falsely advertised. Unfortunately, such supplements are exempt from the stringent regulatory oversight applied to prescription drugs, which requires reviews of a product’s safety and effectiveness before it goes to market. Don’t waste your money!
Penile enlargement surgery is risky, ineffective and certainly not ready for prime time. Some techniques are what I call “sleight of penis” procedures including cutting the suspensory ligaments, disconnecting and moving the attachment of the scrotum to the penile base, and liposuction of the pubic fat pad. These procedures unveil some of the “inner” penis, but do nothing to enhance overall length. Other procedures attempt to “bulk up” the penis by injections of fat, silicone and other tissue grafts. The side effects can include an unsightly, lumpy, discolored, painful and perhaps poorly functioning penis—a far cry from a “proud soldier” and more like a “wounded warrior.” Stay away from penile enlargement surgery!
While you can’t make your penis bigger with an herbal supplement, you can make it harder, stronger, and improve your sexual performance by strengthening the muscles that support and control your penis. The Private Gym is the first comprehensive, interactive, follow-along exercise program that strengthens the male pelvic floor muscles.
A clinical trial of the Private Gym is underway with most participants having completed it. Participants had either no or minimal erectile dysfunction and went through the 8 week Private Gym program. They completed 4 weeks of Basic Training, a series of progressive and graduated “Kegel” exercises, and thereafter did 4 weeks of Complete Training using the Private Gym patented resistance equipment.
Comments from the participants included the following:
“I’m more in tune with my body”
“Increased ejaculate volume”
“Improved sexual experience”
”I’m surprised that muscles affected sex”
“I have increased sexual prowess”
“I get pre-cum for the first time”
“Improved premature ejaculation”
“The resistance made a big difference”
“Saved my marriage”
“Now I understand that it needs exercise like any other body part”
“I feel younger”
“I do it during sex and she orgasms”
“Sex is more fun.”

So, realistically, in the quest for a larger member, the best we can hope for is to accept the endowment given to us by nature and optimize our sexual function by staying fit and keeping our pelvic floor muscles well conditioned. We can’t make it bigger, but we can make it better and cultivate the sexual confidence to overcome penis insecurity.

The Private Gym Program is the first FDA-registered pelvic muscle training system for men. In a four-month clinical trial, 75% of men improved erectile rigidity and 90% reported great improvement in their sexual self-confidence.

Kegels, or pelvic floor exercises, are not just for women. Nor can they be performed any old place at any old time. Kegels are so much more than just squeezing and releasing. Explore this post as we set all the Kegel myths straight.
