If you’ve taken a walk down the Johannesburg CBD, you probably have endured and tallied a number of penis enlargement pamphlets being thrust in your face at every corner. Now we know that may sound a bit wrong, but we are hounded by adverts referring us to obscure specialists promising all sorts of tricks and herbs to enhance our manhood significantly.
The flyers are tip of the iceberg.
The fact that the words ‘penis enlargement’ return with almost 3 million results on Google is not only a tell tale sign that penis size is big business, but it also reveals that men are curious and most importantly – keen.
Now the big question – is there any truth to any of the claims? Certainly the languaging is quite seductive. We are told that pills and procedures will yield untold fortunes. “Make her squeal”, “Win your lover back”

Medically speaking, a small penis is one that grows to be less than 8 centimetres when erect, a condition called micropenis.

It all goes back to the age old question, does the size of one man’s penis actually affect their ability to satisfy their partner sexually? The answer to that depends from person to person, but research has generally disproved this line of reasoning. No, you don’t have to be Mandingo down there bud…

According to Mens Health, the penis consists of spongy erectile bodies that get filled with blood when you are sexually aroused. The sad part, at least for those of you who rally for an increase, is that these fibrous cylinders and attached to the pelvic bone, rendering them unable to be played around with.
As such, your penis size is pretty much determined by puberty. All that a supplement claiming to increase penis size can do is make those bodies fill at an accelerated speed which will delay your journey to climax. But really, that’s all.
We can spend the whole day chatting about this back and forth but the bottom line is, they don’t work. But fortunately, you do not need to them. Not unless you are prepping for a porn flick audition, that is.
