In the 1970s, English doctor Brian Richards studied penis size, and his research led to a book titled “Penis Enlargement Methods” by Gary Griffin. In the book, Griffin points to the Chartham Study as prove that men can achieve penis growth through exercise. Richards’ Chartham Study featured 30 men, who followed a regular program of penis exercises for three months. According to Richards, the men achieved an average 1-inch increase in the length of their penises and a 1-inch increase in girth. The greatest increase was 1.5 inches, and the least was still nearly an inch.
According to a website that supplies in-depth information on penis exercises, a more recent study conducted by Dr. Grace Dorey, author of “Stronger and Longer,” indicated that penis exercises help men maintain an erection for a longer period by strengthening the penis. According to Dorey, all of the 55 men who participated in the study were unable to maintain an erection for more than 30 seconds prior to the study, but 40 percent showed no signs of impotence after following the prescribed exercises. Additionally, 35 percent more showed significant improvement in their ability to maintain an erection.
A third study, conducted by German urologist Dr. Frank Sommer, compared the results of men who performed pelvic exercises with men who took erection drugs such as Viagra and men who took a placebo. Sommer’s results indicated 80 percent of men who performed pelvic exercises experienced “stronger, harder erections.” Seventy-four percent of the men who took the drugs showed improvement, and only 18 percent of those who took the placebo showed improvement.
Types of Exercises:
Penis exercises fall into three categories: kegels, stretching and jelqing. The exercises target the penis, which is composed of 50 percent muscle, and pelvic muscles. Penis stretching involves attaching weights to your flaccid penis to elongate it. Kegel exercises are designed to strengthen the pubococcygeus muscles. The PC muscles control the flow of semen and urine and play a role in ejaculation and penis hardness. To learn the location of the PC muscles, stop your urination in midstream. The PC muscles become tight. The contraction of the muscles cause the flow of urine to stop. To exercise the muscles, clench and release for 5 to 10 seconds. Work the muscles for a few minutes each day.
Dr. Richards’ study featured jelqing, a repetitive massage technique described on The Penis Enlargement Guy website.
According to the site, you begin by warming the penis with a warm bath or hot towel. Then you lubricate it. You begin the exercise by wrapping your hand around the base of your semi-erect penis and gripping it. You then milk the penis—as you would a cow—by moving your hand toward the head. The exercise is designed to force blood to the end of the penis. The average workout requires 100-200 milkings. For maximum results, do the exercises once each day. The exercise does not work with a flaccid penis or a fully erect penis. One of the main principles of erection enhancement exercises is to improve circulation of the penis and to increase the volume of blood held within the erectile tissue. The erectile tissue that engorges with blood when sexually aroused results in your erections.
The theory goes that if the erectile tissue can be encouraged to hold a greater volume of blood than it could otherwise naturally accommodate, then this will in turn result in a larger penis size both when erect and flaccid.
The other very important thing when it comes to control your erections is the Pubococcygeal muscle (or PC muscle). This muscle can be trained and it is the one most important thing that helps men maintain their erection.
In addition, the thickness of the penis is determined by two muscles: the Ischio Cavernous (IC) and Bulbo Cavernous (BC). These are voluntary muscles that wrap around the shaft of the penis like the belts on a radial tire. When pumped and contracted they give added rigidity and thickness to the shaft of the penis. As with any of the voluntary muscles, these can be exercised and both their strength and size subsequently improved.Good routines are aimed both at training the muscles and enlarging the blood volume held within the erectile tissue.
