penis stretching deviceThe use of penis stretching equipment, commonly called "traction devices" or "penis extenders", is quickly becoming one of the most popular natural methods used for enlarging the penis. But how exactly do these devices work? Here we'll look at the different parts of the penis that come into play when using these devices and the effect they have on penis growth.

The primary goal behind using a traction device is to stretch all the tissues that make up the penis and ultimately create a longer and thicker penis. While worn, the plastic ring that is attached to steel rods stretches the penis and forces the Tunica Albuginea, Corpora Cavernosa and Corpus Spongiosum to adjust to the new length. In order to handle the increased blood flow that results, the arteries and veins contained within the penis are forced to grow in size. When used properly over time, this combination of forces along with the resulting enhanced vascularity ultimately helps to create larger and stronger erections.

Because penis stretchers are designed to work on the penis in it's flaccid (non-erect) state, they also effect the ligaments that keep the penis attached to the body. This however is not the primary focus of these devices. While they do deliver a measure of force upon the ligaments, their main use is to stretch the delicate tissues of the penis and slowly increase it's length and girth.

Stretching the ligaments that attach the penis to the body is more effectively done through natural enlargement exercises. Unlike traction devices, penis exercises are performed in order to attain certain targeted responses from the penis. For example, there are specific exercises designed to increase length as well as targeted techniques to increase girth. Ligament stretching is actually a subcategory of length exercises and focuses solely on forcing the ligaments to adjust and expand. Expanded ligaments will generally allow the penis to hang longer than usual in the flaccid state.

Some penis enlargement solutions, such as the system from SizeGenetics™, use a combination method of both traction device and enlarging exercises to fully target penis growth from all angles. This ultimately results in more effective gains in a shorter period of time. You can find more information about the SizeGenetics™ System by reading the Penis Enlargement Device Review.

Keep in mind that performing penis stretching, be it through manual exercises or mechanical stimulation, is ultimately body modification in the extreme. While these practices have been shown to be very effective for men looking to enlarge their penis size, you should always seek proper instruction from a reputable source and take great care in performing them.
