NHS official advice to men who ask how to get a bigger penis

NHS official advice to men who ask how to get a bigger penis

Searches for penis enlargement have increased by 100 percent

If you’re looking to extend your todger, there are ways you can add a couple of inches down below, according to the NHS.

After Google Trends data showed that ‘penis enlargement’ searches increased by over 100 percent in 2021 and 2022, there’s clearly a renewed sense that men want to supersize their bits and bobs.

Penis enlargement pills were a sought-after commodity too around that time, but there are things that the NHS suggests which could work just as well.

Some of the methods out there are more effective than others, and those that work often involve actual surgery - ouch.

According to recent statistics, the average length of a flaccid penis is 3.61 inches, and when it's erected the average size is 5.17 inches.

So, it’s not like they’re working with a micro-size here. That’s pretty standard.

But some want bigger to feel better about their bodies and that’s okay too.

With so many methods on the market from lengtheners, pumps and gels, to pills, diets and implants, it’s easy to see why surgery would be a last resort for many.

However, there’s no need to splash out on the latest gadgets and gizmos to get the package you want, there are actually three steps you can take instead that can make you feel happier with what you have, and it’s NHS approved.

Professor Kevan Wylie, a sexual medicine consultant, told The Sun: "Many men who worry about the size of their penis generally have overall body image issues.

"What happens is that they tend to focus their poor body image on their penis.

"Often, counselling can make a real difference to the patient by building self-esteem, correcting distorted views about body image and learning more about what makes people attractive."

So, what can you do?

Trim your pubes all the way down

Now, this might not sound like it’ll work but trimming down the bush will in turn make the ‘tree’ look bigger - get it?

Sometimes, a quick clean up is all it takes to reveal what’s hiding beneath the hair.

Get rid of the beer belly

It’s no surprise that a beer belly can make a penis look smaller, after all, it’s like a hanging hood overshadowing what’s below.

If you get rid of the extra weight, you might be shocked to find your willy does look bigger than what you thought.

Get fit and healthy

Not only should you lose weight, but taking care of yourself in general is an NHS recommendation as it’ll make you look and feel better.

Sometimes, insecurities stem from a bad body image and to counter that, clearing your mind can do the trick.

It’s important to note that these tips don’t actually extend your downstairs, but they do make you realise what you have and can whip your brain into better shape.

If not, there’s always the option of going to your GP to be referred to a urologist to see if you’re eligible for a penis enlargement surgery or speak to a councillor to find out where the insecurity stems from.
