With the increasing popularity of men performing physical stretching in order to extend the size of their genitalia, it's easy to assume that this method of penis enlargement is a relatively new practice. However, as we explored in the previous article about the ancient practice of penis stretching, this assumption could not be any farther from the truth. In reality, many societies have adopted body-altering techniques such as penis stretching as a form of cultural tradition.
We continue our exploration of this unique practice by visiting three different regions of the world that have a history of body self-modification through various types of physical stretching.
Indian Extreme Genital Stretching
On the subcontinent of India exists an order of Hindu monks known as the "sadhus", or holy men, who are renowned for their reclusive lifestyles and spiritual practices. Through years of vigorous meditation and training, these monks are able to demonstrate almost unbelievable feats, such as balancing on one leg for months and even years without ever moving from that spot.
Another of the monks exploits, albeit spoken less of due to it's graphic nature, involved the stretching of their genitalia into incredible lengths. The sadhus accomplished this by hanging a heavy stone from their penis using lengths of woven grass. The monks would gradually increase the weight by adding heavier stones which would over time lengthen the shaft of their penises.
Through this practice a monk could stretch his penis up to an amazing 4 feet in length. One unfortunate side effect to this type of radical training was that although the penis would become very long it usually would be stretched extremely thin as well.
African Cultural Stretching
Extension of the penis and other parts of the body through the use of stretching is perhaps best well-known among certain tribes on the continent of Africa. While these stretching rituals have been followed by the indigenous people for many centuries, there are in fact still many who practice them to this very day.
Unlike other cultures where these practices are specifically reserved for men, in some of these tribes the women also take part in these rituals. One bizarre female practice in particular involves stretching of the neck by stacking rings upon each other until the neck is forced to expand in length.
South American Body Modification
In some cultures the use of instruments to increase the size of body parts is actually handed down from generation to generation as a tradition. For example the Suya, a tribe located in the country of Brazil, is best known for their body modification methods used to increase lip size.
The men of the Suya tribe would have their lower lip pierced and a small wooden disk would be inserted inside. Over time they would slowly increase the dimensions of the disk until the lip was stretched several times its original size. Similar to the principle employed by modern day penis traction devices, the human body will compensate, adapt and expand when sufficient stimulus is applied.
There are many historical accounts of body modification through stretching techniques. Ears, lips, necks, arms, legs and even the penis has been elongated for both cultural reasons as well as for personal gratification.
Today most of the men who practice penile stretching do it for the simple reason of not being satisfied with their current penis size. Modern traction-based devices such as penis extenders provide an opportunity to attain a larger penis without any of the risks that ancient historical methods posed.
Next we'll look at some of the newer solutions that have been devised for stretching the penis to increase it's size. These include high-tech devices such as special belts and extenders that don't involve the sometimes dangerous weight-stretching mechanisms.
