Penis Extender Studies and Research
Penis extenders, or penile traction devices as they're commonly called, are part of an evolving trend towards do-it-yourself penis enlargement modification therapy. While medical science has already acknowledged the effectiveness of these devices in the treatment of conditions such as Peyronies Disease (curvature of the penis), it is their incredible ability to increase both the length and girth of the penis that has captured the most attention.
If your interest is in using one of these devices to increase penis size rather than reviewing research data, please see our enlargement device comparison table for more information on the latest and most effective models.
The ever-growing body of documented evidence is proving that penis extenders are not only a safe and inexpensive alternative to surgery, but perhaps one of the most effective means ever developed to naturally enlarge the penis.
The results from this penis extender pilot study were published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine (Mar. 2008). Results confirm both the reduction of penile curvature as well as an increase in overall penis length and girth.
