There has always been a lot of controversy regarding penis enlargement and the various methods that reportedly allow a man to increase his size naturally. Do these methods work? Are they safe? These are the types of questions that men interested in penis enlargement often ask. One article recently published in an online medical journal helps provide answers by examining some of the more popular techniques in use today. The conclusion reached, with specific regard to penis traction devices, is "Yes, they do work!" The ability to physically enlarge the penis without any type of surgical procedure is a FACT.
Before we get to the article itself, let's learn a little about the source. Formerly known as the British Journal of Urology, the BJUI was first established in 1929 and covers the field of urology. Urology is the medical and surgical specialty that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males.
The BJUI publishes peer-reviewed papers on urological oncology, evidence-based medicine, sexual medicine, laparoscopic and robotic urology, upper and lower urinary tract, reconstructive, pediatric, and investigative urology. It is the official journal of the British Association of Urological Surgeons, Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand, The Urological Society of India, and The Caribbean Urological Association.
Why am I spending time talking about the BJUI? Aside from the fact that you should always know the source of information, I want to make it clear that this is no crack-pot organization. Membership is composed of Doctors, Surgeons, Scientists and Researchers who excel in their practices and are considered some of the top minds in their field.
The Article - Non-invasive methods of penile lengthening: fact or fiction?
The aforementioned article is entitled "Non-invasive methods of penile lengthening: fact or fiction?" The abstract from the article reads:
"Penile size is a matter of great interest among men who are affected by 'short penis syndrome' or just believe themselves to have a small penis, even though the dimensions of the organ fall within the normal range. Surgical procedures of 'lengthening phalloplasty' lack standardized indications and carry a high risk of complications. Several non-invasive methods of penile lengthening have been described, such as vacuum devices, penile traction devices and penoscrotal rings; even 'physical exercises' have been popularized through the media. Most of these techniques, however, are not supported by any scientific evidence. We briefly analyse the efficacy and scientific background of such non-surgical methods of penile lengthening."
It's important to note that they are referencing "non-invasive" methods of penis enlargement. Penis surgery is considered an "invasive" method since it involves the actual cutting of skin and tissues. The article continues:
"It seems that penile extenders represent the only evidence-based technique of penile elongation. Results achieved do not seem to be inferior to surgery, making these traction devices an ideal first-line treatment option for patients seeking a penile lengthening procedure."

Although this conclusion may be unnecessary for the thousands of men across the globe who have already successfully enlarged their penises using traction devices (also called penis extenders), it is nice to see some confirmation from a published and reputable source. It is not the first scientific affirmation of the effectiveness of penis extender devices but it does somewhat help reduce the stigma commonly associated with natural penis enlargement.
I hope and anticipate that future medical studies and reports will continue to surface and bring about a greater understanding of the options men have when seeking to enlarge their penis. Men who are unsatisfied with penis size and wish to increase it can achieve that goal... they just need to be made aware that it's possible! These types of reports will hopefully serve to reassure men and raise awareness of the non-surgical options that exist to them.
