Here they are in order of recommendation:

1) QuickExtender PRO

quick extender pro

The 6 best penis extenders – 1st Place: Quick Extender Pro


  • Warranty: Six months to a year, depending on the package bought.
  • Time recommended per day: 4 – 6 hours
  • Length extendable: Up to 16″
  • Highest amount of tension: 4000g
  • Average percentage increase in size: 28%
  • Can I wear it while I sleep: No

Don’t like the stretching belt or the vacuum system? Are you looking for a more “classic” penis extender? Don’t like taking risks in life?

Here we go dudes… The Quick Extender Pro.

The Quick Extender Pro has remained a giant in the penis extenders industry for over a decade now. They manufacture their extenders using only the highest quality hypoallergenic materials. Bang!

This Quick Extender Pro penis extender comes in four packages to suit any budget.

The Deluxe Limited comes with all the bells and whistles… including DVDs, the Quick Extender (of course), DSS system, Smart Tension self-adjusting springs with an industry-leading force of 4000g and a free hot girl included in the box… Ahah, just kidding!

Sure they would sell many more if that was the case!

QuickExtender PRO also comes with three free boxes of Rizer XL male enhancement supplements (but don’t use pills!) and a penis pump to further increase your results too. There are spare parts included, a mahogany box (useless), a travel bag with a lock, and memory foam.

The standard deluxe edition comes with all the same things as the deluxe limited edition but in lower quantity and without the mahogany box. The Rizer supplements are just enough for a month, and the limit of the spring tension is 3500g.

But it’s much more economical and fits nicely within the average person’s budget. Though the value package is cheaper, most people prefer to start off with the standard edition.

I didn’t try this one personally, but one of our editorial team tried it for seven months, starting off at four hours a day for the first month and then increasing to six. He reported back that while it was uncomfortable for a week and took some getting used to, it rarely got painful.

After a month, he reported back that his dick had grown about 0.7″. After four months, it had gone from 5.2″ to 5.9″. By the time he took it off just shy of seven months, he was at 6.16″.

So, as you can infer, as you use the extender, your results should be rapid for the first few months. Then, they should begin to slow and plateau. Always remember the golden rule: results vary from person to person.


2) Phallosan Forte

phallosan forte extender

The 6 Best Penis Extenders – 2nd Place: Phallosan Forte

The Phallosan Forte extender is pretty unique indeed.

I’m about to show you the 6 best penis extenders on the market and you’ll notice that they all look the same, besides Phallosan Forte.

You might think that maybe Phallosan Forte with their penis extender stretching belt is the weird cookie and this is why no one is doing what they do, but after a little research I found out that actually Phallosan Forte system is patented so no one can copy it yet. Ha!


  • Warranty: Two years warranty on spare parts
  • Time recommended: From six hours up
  • Length extendable: No official length limit
  • Highest amount of tension: 3000g
  • Average percentage increase in size: 30%
  • Can I sleep with it: Yes

I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few years from now, when the patent expires the penis enlargement/penis extender market gets flooded with stretching belts.

I have to be very honest here and tell you that the main reason why I like a lot Phallosan Forte extender is because of the professionalism of this company.

It looks like this penis extender is sold in all Austrian, German, and Swiss pharmacies, which contributes to creating loads of trust in Phallosan Forte.

Luckily though Phallosan Forte is also sold online for all you guys outside the German part of the world (including myself) but if you end up going to Germany for the Oktoberfest or other girls-hunting trip feel free to drop by a pharmacy and ask for one.

Otherwise man, save your face from the embarrassment, listen to this dude here and just buy it online.

You can wear Phallosan Forte for up to 12hrs a day, even while you sleep.

Just remember to take it off while you go to pee, especially if you are in a public toilet otherwise you’ll end up watering the guy next to you.

Super cool update:

Jeez, don’t I love Phallosan! These guys recently created the Phallosan Plus+ accessory:

phallosan plus

Now look what they did here.

They created a rod expander for those who don’t like the classic “Phallosan” stretching belt and are instead after something more classic, while still keeping the Phallosan vacuum system to grab your glans.

This is genius.

3) SizeGenetics

size genetics extender

The 6 best penis extenders – 3rd Place: SizeGenetics


  • Warranty: One year
  • Time recommended: 4 – 6 hours
  • Length extendable: Up to 10″
  • Highest amount of tension: 2800g
  • Average percentage increase in size: 29%
  • Can I sleep with it: No

The SizeGenetics extender is great and definitely one of the best penis extenders on the market. I think these guys realized how important it is for the penis extender to be comfortable in order to help you get results.

So they focused on creating a stretching device that may end up being the most comfortable on the market with its 58 way comfort system.

The SizeGenetics extender has been clinically tested, endorsed by doctors and probably approved by worldwide girlfriends…

The coolest thing about this company is that they’re really confident in this extender. On the SizeGenetics website you can find pictures showing the results guys are getting by wearing it and they give you 180 day money back guarantee if you’re not happy with it.

You can also get the SizeGenetics for free dude, if you send them a testimonial after using it with pictures showing your penis before and after using SizeGenetics.

Just remember to take a picture flaccid and erect before you start using it!

I’ve heard of guys that used SizeGenetics, got results, took pictures of their penises and also of their happy girlfriends (that’s not necessary man) and sent them to SizeGenetics, only to realize that they forgot to take a picture “before” they started using the extender which means they cannot prove their results.

SizeGenetics is doing this “free offer” for a limited time, so you should hurry if you wanna take advantage of it (oh and by the way use the coupon code: world50 to get $50 off).

If you miss the offer, or if they changed the terms, don’t break my balls, I’m not your grandma, it’s your responsibility to read the terms and conditions before buying anything.

Here’s my SizeGenetics review with private photos and video.


4) Male Edge

male edge penis stretcher

The 6 best penis extenders – 4th Place: Male Edge

These guys are bold.


  • Warranty: One year
  • Time recommended: Depends on the model
  • Length extendable: 11″
  • Highest amount of tension: N/A
  • Average percentage increase in size: 29%
  • Can I sleep with it: No

It’s rare or maybe unique to find a company that openly states: “no fine print […] the growth is 100% permanent”. But who are these people?

The same dutch company that created Jes Extender (see below) decided to throw themselves on a new challenge and to improve the Jes Extender with this new innovative and more affordable penis stretcher called Male Edge.

In perfect dutch style they give you a double money back guarantee and promise you’ll get a thicker and longer penis.

After only 6 months of using it, they claim an average growth of 28% in length and 18% in girth.
Male Edge penis extender is ultra-light, has a double traction system and is incredibly easy to use.

They say that the hours spent stretching your penis are what makes the difference. So basically if you use their extender 10 hrs a day for 6 days for a total of 60 hours, you’ll get the same results you would get using it 1hr a day for 60 days.

If you wanna see how many hours you need to grow your penis as you like it, check out their penis-o-meter, enter the size of your flaccid penis now, enter your desired outcome and it’ll tell you how many hours you need.

Don’t get scared, it may be in the order of thousands of hours.

Remember that your body needs time to grow, just like you wouldn’t expect to become as big as Schwarzenegger after a few weeks at the gym, unless you’re high on drugs.


5) Jes-Extender

jes extender

The 6 best penis extenders – 5th Place: Jes-Extender

Jes-Extender is the first and most popular penis extender of all time, with a medically documented average growth of 28% (which is a lot), developed by urologists at the national danish hospital using surgical steel and medical silicone.

The first thing I think when I look at a Jes-Extender is: Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees this is so cool! The second is: wow that’s pretty expensive too!


  • Warranty: Varies according to package
  • Time recommended: Depends on the program
  • Length extendable: Up to 9.1″
  • Highest amount of tension: N/A
  • Average percentage increase in size: 24.5%
  • Can I wear it while I sleep: No

But you know what? All penis extenders are expensive, we said it at the beginning of this article, you don’t wanna put your penis in cheap hands… we like classy hands, sexy hands and these are expensive, man.

But anyways mister Jes Bech Muller came out with a Jes-Extender for each bank account so you can choose between:

  • Light Standard
  • Original Standard Comfort
  • Titanium
  • Silver Standard
  • Gold Standard
  • Platinum

with the latter being by far the coolest and one of the best penis extenders in the world, if money is not a problem for you. Check it out for only $1,399.

Jes-Extenders are a very famous name in the industry, they have been producing penis extenders for 14 years with more than 250,000 happy customers (and happy customers’ girlfriends) all around the world.

They also claim to have a double money back guarantee if you practice the training program they give you with the extender and don’t get results.

This penis extender is made in Denmark where life is expensive and girls are pretty hot.

So, if you’re serious about enlarging your penis, want to use the best penis extenders on the market and like dutch girls, Jes-Extender is a no brainer.

Go for it!


6) PeniMaster PRO

penimaster pro penis extender

The 6 best penis extenders – 6th Place: PeniMaster PRO

Alright, so this sucker is a real PRO in the penis growth game.

I had the pleasure to try it on and test it on my penis, and I have to admit it feels comfortable, it feels safe and the quality of the materials is really high (or at least that’s how it looks to the man who has tried more penis extenders than anybody else in the world – myself).


  • Warranty: Three years
  • Time recommended: Up to 12 hours a day
  • Length extendable: With rods, 11″. But without rods, there’s no maximum length.
  • Highest amount of tension: 7600g
  • Average percentage increase in size: 30%
  • Can I sleep with it: Not recommended

PeniMaster PRO is a real professional penis extender and definitely one of the best out there, plus the company behind this device is German and it has awesome customer support too.

But let’s say it all. PeniMaster PRO is a pain in the ass to wear the first time.

I was really getting annoyed mounting the PRO Basic piece on the head of my penis but then if you watch the video instructions included in the package you’ll get it and be ready to go and start extending your penis (or expanding it as people at PeniMaster like to say) in no time.

Soon your partner may open their mouth wide in awe… or maybe also to try it on.

Really, if you can get over the first 30 minutes of frustration trying to understand how to mount the device, you may really enjoy this penis extender… a lot.

You can choose between the belt system, the rod expander one or the complete set (if you want to use both or alternate them to see what works best for you).

I personally prefer the rod expander, but I know that some like the belt so they can use it while they sleep. In the video above you can see me trying them both.

If you want to find out more, here’s the full PeniMaster PRO review.


I put the Phallosan Forte stretching device on top of this list for their innovative design, professionalism and the fact that among all these extenders, the Phallosan Forte is probably the only one that you can buy in a pharmacy and wear while you sleep which is pretty cool.

Best penis extender for the first time buyer

If you don’t like the Phallosan Forte stretching belt and want a classic extender go for a QuickExtender PRO. If you have money to spend a Jes Extender platinum is the best you can find, contrarily if you’re on a budget go for a SizeGenetics.

Best penis extender for the lazy man

Definitely the Male Edge. It comes already mounted, it’s modern, easy to use, straightforward and cool looking too.

A Look Into The Science of Penis Extending

no stupid people

We’ve looked at the best penis extenders, but now, we’ll sate your curiosity a bit. Men have been trying for centuries, or even millennia, to add some more size to their penis. It’s been a topic amongst men for as long as we knew what it was used for.

Some scientists and experimenters have tried all sorts of means, from the weird to the painful, to the downright crazy. But it was only in the late 80s to early 90s that a way to enlarge your prick through traction was discovered.

The science behind traction is based on the fact that the penis is basically just a heavily nerved piece of skin with lots of blood vessels.

This means that, like every other piece of skin that is stretched out for an extended time, it stays that way. It is a process that encourages cell growth called cytokinesis. But the result is the more extended skin.

Research has discovered that the penis, when stretched, creates micro-fissures, invisible to the naked eye. You won’t be able to feel them, either.

When there are a lot of these microscopic tears, your body starts to heal them, by creating new cells in the gaps left by the tears. This is the process of cytokinesis. As the stretcher continues to stretch your cock for hours, day after day, your dick continues to have micro-tears.

When this goes on for an extended period, your body begins to go into overdrive and creates new cells at a rapid rate. This circumstance is the fast growth spurt your penis undergoes within the first few months of your extending program.

After a while, the development plateaus for a while. Some men wear extenders for up to two or three years and grow up to three inches.

Why Buy a Penis Extender

For some of us, we didn’t want a bigger penis till our partner let it be known that yes, we were on the small side. The average man’s penis is around four to six inches. But even our blessed six, seven, eight, and nine-inched brothers crave another inch or two.

What dude doesn’t want to take his pants off in the bedroom and have their partner’s jaw drop?

Remember how the boys in gym class whispered about that one guy’s massive schlong in the gym showers? Remember the automatic reverence and respect just having a big dick got him?

It might be crazy, but that’s the current society we live in.

A penis extender is a device constructed to add length and girth to your penis without invasive surgeries.

Years ago, our forefathers used to do all sorts of dumb shit to add an extra inch or so to their dicks.

A quality penis extender can give you those extra inches for a price ranging from $250-$500. Pretty special, considering surgery to lengthen your dick goes up into the thousands.

How do Penis Extenders Work?

As I mentioned before, penis extenders use the science of traction to grow your member. By traction, we mean that these devices steadily stretch your penis slowly and farther. Not gonna lie, this can be uncomfortable sometimes.

But all of us dudes on the team that had to try it to write this guide noticed that while it does get uncomfortable, it doesn’t cross the line into actual pain. The awkward feeling does fade after a while.

Contrarily to a penis pump, penis extenders stretch the penis slowly. Most manufacturers will advise you to wear the product for four to six hours a day. You have to do this over six months and beyond for the best results.

The reason for this is that penis extenders stretch your pecker, and the penis cells stretch with it.

This leaves small cellular spaces. Your body automatically creates new cells to fill those spaces. Do you get more comfortable with the stretch? That’s your body playing fill in the gap with your cells.

As you continue to increase the pressure on the extender, the cells continue to grow and voila! You got yourself a longer schlong after a few months. Penises that are extended this way have actually been proven to have better erection quality than a surgically lengthened penis.

In normal speak, that means your organically grown penis might be harder than that dude’s who went to get his on the operating table. Your months of wearing a penile brace won’t be in vain.

The knowledge and science of cock extenders have continued to spread, and more people are trying them nowadays. And, as consumer demands increase, so does production.

An improperly constructed extender worn over a long period can give you ejaculation problems or worse. It can also cause bruising, chafing, and wounds. Not something you want to mess with. So, what should you look out for when buying a penis extender?

What to Watch Out for When Shopping for a Penis Extender

follow scientific data meme

Here are a few things to keep in mind when searching for a capable penis extender:


When looking for the best penis extender for you, you’ve got to consider what exactly you want to gain from it. Do you want more width or length for your penis?

Or do you need a cock extender to provide relief for your penile curvature?

Any of these reasons could be your motive, but you have to look at the features and pick an extender to help you achieve your gains.


As I said before, most manufacturers will advise you to wear the penis extenders for four to six hours a day for six months. That’s about one-sixth to a quarter of your whole day.

Definitely not a length of time you want to be uncomfortable for. Some people choose to wear theirs while at home, breaking the allotted time into two or three bits when they’ll be at home.

But sometimes, for some people, wearing it in public is unavoidable. In these instances, a good penis extender should come with a variety of ways to wear it, including bands, belts, straps, fabric, rings, etc.

Consider the size and shape of the device before you buy it and compare it to the clothes you usually wear. Some extenders are small enough to be used underneath clothing.


Make sure that whatever extender you buy is made out of hypoallergenic products. Please. We cannot stress this enough. This contraption is going to be strapped to your penis for thousands of hours, literally.

If you know you have sensitive skin, this is doubly important.

You might even want to get checked out for any skin allergies you might have before buying. It is that serious. If your extender is made out of any material you’re allergic to, you can get an outbreak of rashes, hives, eczema, and swelling (not the good kind).


The highest priced penis extenders come in at over a thousand dollars.

Those are the big leagues, but as I said before, you can get a great cock stretcher for between $250 and $500. This may seem like a lot of money to you, but it’s worth it if you want those few inches grown right.

Clinically Tested Penis Extenders VS Untested Extenders

On some of the official websites, it’s noted that some cock extenders have been clinically tested. What does being clinically tested mean?

When a penis extender has been clinically or medically tested, this means that it has been verified by doctors in related fields (such as urology), to do what it claims to do. It is kind of like an official stamp of approval.

Think of it in the same way the FDA checks the claims of fold and drugs brought into the States. When a company is able to put that “FDA approved” logo on its product, it’s announcing itself. It’s going, “Hey! Hey, I’m trustworthy. Even the authorities agree.”

While clinical testing does give credibility to a penis extender, the lack of testing should not discredit any penis extender companies. There could be various reasons why a company that makes penis extenders might not bother with medical testing.

Maybe they don’t yet have the resources. Maybe they feel that their loyal customer base and hundreds of good reviews speak well enough for them. It could be some other reason other than these two.

But rest assured, a good penis extender always goes through some tests to ensure the safety of customers.

So, a clinically tested penis extender may not necessarily be better than one that is not. Unfortunately the only surefire way to know what works best for you would be to try them all.

Go with your gut and pick what inspires you more.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Penis Extenders

Is enlargement the only benefit of penis extenders?

No, it is not. Many customers report straighter penis’ in the case of Peyronie’s disease. Men with erectile dysfunction report better, stronger erections after using a penis extender.

But even healthy men who’re just in it for the enlargement report harder erections and better stamina after extending. This happens because the stretcher works by applying tension to stimulate cell growth.

This process also enhances blood flow to your dick, resulting in better stamina and reduced erectile problems.

Are there any age limits for penis stretchers?

You have to be at least 18 years of age to buy any penis extender, so no underage penis extending. But that’s just about the only limit. We recommend you speak to a doctor before using a penis extender.

Are all penis extenders the same?

Most penis extenders are the same in the sense that they all use the science of traction to help you achieve your aim. But that’s where the similarities end. Some penis extenders use a noose, strap, or vacuum as a part of their device.

Medical professionals have evaluated some. The materials used are different. Some are just for enlargement, while some can be used for post-op treatment, chordee, erectile dysfunction, and Peyronie’s disease.

What if I want to get longer than the device I’m currently using?

An easy fix for that is to get longer rods or whatever your device uses. Your penis extender should be adjustable, but if it is not, you might have to invest in another.

Are there any side effects of using a penis extender?

Only your personal doctor could answer this question specifically for you.

In general lines, if you use your penis extender correctly and follow the program the manufacturer provides (if there is one), you won’t have any adverse side effects. Some people have indeed had some problems with their pricks after using a penis extender.

But in all those cases, it was found that the penis extender wasn’t worn properly or as indicated. There could also be the chance of discovering a new skin allergy when using a penis extender. This is why you have to make sure your extender is completely hypoallergenic materials.

Or make sure that you do not have an allergy to whatever material the manufacturer uses.

Can I have sex while using a penis extender?

Of course, you can! Wearing a cock extender shouldn’t stop you from going at it whenever you want. Many men have even reported that they have better stamina and better erections.

The only slight drawback is that it does present a bit of a challenge to remove when you just want to strip and go at it.

If I get a boner while wearing a penis enhancement device, is it going to hurt or break the device?

Overall, getting an erection while wearing a penis enhancement device is generally not a cause for concern. It should not hurt, and should not break your traction device.

Most penile stretchers are made with materials that can stretch and flex to accommodate changes in size and shape.

In fact, Phallosan Forte is specifically designed to accommodate spontaneous nocturnal erections if you’re wearing your extender while sleeping.

So getting an erection while wearing a penis extender is not likely to hurt you or break the device.

But it is essential to ensure that your extender is properly fitted and adjusted to prevent any discomfort or injury.

So to make sure that you’re wearing your extender properly, be sure to watch again my videos and see how I do it. Alternatively read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully, and always adhere to the recommended duration of use and any other precautions or limitations that they may have.

How do I use the restroom while wearing a penis extender?

If you need to use the restroom, you’ll need to remove your penis stretcher first, and then re-apply the device after you’re done.

Depending on the system that you choose, you may be able to loosen the device to relieve yourself.

But generally, you won’t be able to urinate while wearing a penis extender, especially if you’re using Phallosan Forte, which fits entirely over the head and shaft of your penis.

Trying to use the restroom or urinate while wearing a penis extender won’t only be uncomfortable, but it may also cause your device to become contaminated with bacteria.

Since we’re here, I should also mention the importance of regularly cleaning your penis extender, especially if it comes into contact with your urine, semen, or any other bodily fluids.

Can I still wear a penis extender if I’m uncircumcised?

Yes, penis extenders are generally designed to be worn on circumcised and uncircumcised penises.

So being uncircumcised does not prevent you from using a penis extender.

Different extender systems will attach to your penis in different ways, and that may interfere with how the device is worn.

But having a foreskin really shouldn’t stop you from being able to use an extender system.

Most extenders have an adjustable strap that you use to connect your extender to the head of your penis.

In this case, having a foreskin may interfere slightly with the way you strap the device to yourself. But it shouldn’t make things impossible.

On the other hand, Phallosan Forte uses a different system, which fits over your entire glans and shaft.

So whether you have a foreskin or not, it really shouldn’t have any impact whatsoever on your ability to wear the extender comfortably.

Will I have to shave off my pubic hair to use a penis extender?

You don’t have to shave your pubic hair to use a penis extender, but it will definitely make the process a bit easier and more comfortable.

When I tested the penis extenders in this article I went ahead and trimmed my pubic hair (as I mentioned in my videos), because when the hair gets stuck in there, it does hurt.

Think of it this way: if you have a thick, bushy forest down there, there’s a better chance that it will get tangled up or pinched while you’re moving around and wearing your device.

So if you trim things down a bit, and do a bit of manscaping here and there, you really won’t have to worry about it, right?

Should I apply personal lubricant to my penis or the device to make it more comfortable when I’m putting it on, taking it off, or wearing it?

You shouldn’t need to apply or use any lube when putting on, taking off, or wearing your penis extender.

Unless specifically recommended by the manufacturer, using a lubricant might actually make it harder to properly attach the device to your penis and keep it in place.

If you feel the device is chafing you while being worn, you might try adding a bit of water-based lubricant to the affected area.

If chafing is your concern, a bit of baby powder can also be a lifesaver!

The trick is not to use too much lube, as this will make your device slippery and difficult to use and adjust.

And you’ll also want to wipe off any lubricant before putting your extender away for storage.

When in doubt, be sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions to learn if you should be using lubricant with your penis extender system.

Does it hurt to use a penis extender?

When used correctly, a penis extender should not cause any pain or discomfort. You’ll definitely be able to feel the stretcher working as it gently stretches your penis, but this should not hurt.

Wearing an extender feels like nothing more than a gentle tugging sensation, almost as if you were gently stretching your penis by hand.

So if you do start to feel any sharp pains, burning sensations, or discomfort, it could be a sign that something isn’t right.

In this case, remove the device immediately and check the manufacturer’s direction to make sure that you’re using the device properly.

Give your body a break, and you should get back to normal quickly.

If the pain or discomfort persists after removing the device and letting your body rest, you may need to consult with a doctor or healthcare professional.

Are the results of my penis extender permanent or do I have to keep using it forever?

According to my research and personal experience, the results from penis stretching are permanent. But enhancement practices like penis stretching are largely unstudied, so there’s no real guarantee that you’ll experience permanent gains because everyone is different.

I have found some proof that there is real science behind penile traction, but I haven’t been able to find any studies on the permanence of stretching gains.

Therefore, the best I can say is that your gains may or may not be permanent.

Every dude’s body is different.

Will a penis extender cause bodily harm or nerve damage?

When used correctly and according to the manufacturer’s instructions, a penis extender is generally considered safe and should not cause any bodily harm or nerve damage.

As with any sex toys or devices, there is always a risk of injury and causing damage to your penis, particularly if the extender is not used properly.

For example, if you apply too much traction, or wear your extender for too long, it may cause some discomfort, irritation, and pain.

And if you don’t give your body a break, and allow it to heal in between stretches, it is possible to really hurt yourself!

So while wearing one of these devices is considered safe, and shouldn’t cause any bodily harm or nerve damage, it’s important to approach penile traction with a touch of caution and to never use the device outside of what’s recommended by the manufacturer.

Do women like penis extenders?

Some women love them. Others hate them. So I’d have to say that it probably depends on the woman.

Some women might be turned on by the idea of a partner using a penis extender to get a bigger penis.

They might think it’s hot that you’re trying to better yourself, and they just can’t stop thinking about how much bigger your penis will be.

Other women might not be interested at all, preferring that you feel comfortable and confident in your body, just the way you are.

Regardless of what women think, your decision to wear a penis extender is entirely yours and yours alone!

So if you do decide to try wearing a penis extender, just be confident in your decision. Be proud that you’re doing something to try and make yourself feel better, and taking steps in the right direction.

After all, confidence is sexy, and that’s the real secret to pleasing a partner, whether you’re using a penis extender or not!

What’s the difference between a penis sleeve, sheath, and extender?

Penis sleeves and sheath are mostly used for play, while a penile extender is used to help men achieve a bigger penis.

A penis sleeve is a type of sex toy that slips over the penis to add extra length, girth, or texture to your member.

Penis sleeves are worn over your penis sort of like a condom, but without any of the protection from unplanned pregnancy and unwanted STDs.

The terms penis sleeve and penis sheath are often used interchangeably.

But they shouldn’t be!

A penis sheath is usually made of leather or other materials, and is often used in BDSM play to restrict or enhance sensation, depending on how it’s used.

Finally, a penis extender, otherwise known as a penile traction device or a penis stretcher, is designed to stretch a man’s penis over time, with the goal being to increase its length or girth or to make it straighter.

What’s the difference between a penis extender and a penis pump?

A penis extender is designed to help men achieve permanent penile size increases, whereas a penis pump is mostly used for men who have trouble achieving an erection on their own, or who want to experience temporary size gains.

While some may think that penis extenders and penis pumps are the same things, they really aren’t!

A penis extender is a device that you wear on your penis, usually for several hours per day and for weeks or months at a time, to gradually stretch and straighten out the shape of your penis.

The process of using a penis extender takes time, but the idea is that you can obtain permanent penile gains.

On the other hand, a penis pump is a device that you use to temporarily get a bigger penis.

A penis pump creates a vacuum around your entire penis, which draws blood into it, helping you achieve a stronger, harder erection.

A penis pump can make your penis slightly bigger, but the effect is not permanent.

So both penis extenders and penis pumps help men get bigger penises.

But the gains from wearing an extender are said to be permanent, while the size gains from using a penis pump are generally short-lived.

So, if you need a quick size boost for a special occasion, go for the penis pump.

But if you’re in it for the long haul, and want to see permanent results, the penis extender is the way to go.

How to clean penis extenders?

To clean your penis extender start by wiping it down to remove any lubricants, bodily fluids, or other contaminants from the surface of the device. Then you can wash the extender with a bit of soapy water, before leaving it out to dry.

Cleaning your penis extender, just like cleaning all sex toys, is an important part of maintaining good hygiene and keeping your device in good working order!

Let’s take a better look at how to clean a penile extender or traction device.

  1. Scrub it: Just like any other sex toy, you’ll want to clean your penis extender thoroughly after each use, especially if it’s been in contact with any of your, or your partner’s bodily fluids. Unless your extender system has specific manufacturer instructions for cleaning, it should be OK to use warm water and soap to gently scrub and clean the surfaces of your device.
  2. Be gentle – Penis extenders are usually made from a variety of different materials, including silicone, TPE, hard plastics, and metal. Just make sure to be gentle when cleaning, and avoid using any harsh cleaning products or chemicals. Not only can these potentially damage your extender system, but they can also pose a health risk from being used near your penis. In other words, don’t clean your penis extender with anything that you wouldn’t want near your penis!
  3. Let it dry – After cleaning your penis extender, be sure to let it dry completely before storing it away. You can use a clean towel to pat it dry, or just let it air dry on a clean surface. Either way, making sure that it’s dry before storage is the best to ensure that your device will be in pristine shape the next time you take it out of the box.
  4. Store it properly – Finally, be sure to store your penis extender in a clean, dry place, away from direct sunlight or other sources of heat. It’s probably fine to keep your penis extender in your bedside drawer, but whenever possible, I recommend storing your system in the box or case that it came in.

What Is A Penis Extender?

A penis extender is a device that’s designed to gradually stretch and lengthen a man’s penis over time, intending to permanently increase its length or girth.

These devices can also be used by men who suffer from Peyronie’s disease, or those who want straighter hard-ons than what they’ve currently got.

The penis extender systems that I’ve tested and reviewed above are all slightly different from each other.

But the one thing they all have in common is that they use the principles of traction to apply a steady, yet gentle stretch to the skin of your penis.

The idea is that, over time, this stretch will cause your penis’ cells and tissues to grow and expand, resulting in a larger, thicker, and longer penis.

How much do penis extenders cost?

A penis extender kit can cost anywhere between just under $200 to as much as $1000. But the cost of a penis extender really depends on the brand and the package or kit that you choose.

For instance, PeniMaster PRO is one of the more basic extender systems and currently retails for less than $200 at the time of writing.

But the company also has other extender systems that cost as much as $362.

Alternatively, Phallosan Forte retails for $379, and Jes-Extender kits can be purchased for anywhere between $250 to $350, and they even have a premium kit that costs a whopping $1000.

So as you can see, the cost of a penis extender can vary as much as the length of the male genitalia itself!

Do Penis Extenders Work?

Yes, penis extenders do work. While there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the field of male penis enhancement, there is evidence to suggest that penis extenders can be effective in increasing penis size or creating a straighter penis.

I should also mention though that there are very few studies looking at the efficacy of penis extenders in helping men achieve a bigger penis.

Realistically, there are a bunch of factors, such as starting size, age, health, and consistency of use, which can all impact whether a penis extender will work for you or not.

How long should you use penile extenders to get results?

Penis extenders are meant to be worn for several hours per day, and for anywhere between a few weeks to several months or a year at a time for men looking to permanently increase size, or to obtain a straighter penis.

When I looked at Phallosan Forte’s website, they state that men should be able to see an extra 1.9 inches in length after wearing the device for about 6 months.

As for Jes-Extender, they’ll start you off with a six-week “Slow Start-Up Schedule,” designed to allow your body to become accustomed to wearing the device before you really start your stretching regimen.

So in reality, the amount of time you need to wear a penis extender to see results depends on the specific extender system you use.

But one thing is clear: using a penis extender to obtain a larger or straighter penis is not an overnight task. You’ll need to be committed to using your device regularly, and for as long as 6 months or more.

How much growth can I expect if I use a high-end penis extender exactly as directed?

If you use your device exactly as intended, you can expect to grow your penis by anywhere from 0.5 – 2 inches after wearing the device for several months.

But remember: There are no typical results when using a penis extender.

Every male’s body is different and will react differently to the process of placing the penis under traction.

The amount of growth you can expect to achieve, even if using a high-end penis extender, really depends on several factors, including your starting size, age, overall health, and your dedication to using the device consistently.

Penile extenders vs surgery – Which is better?

Unless there’s something seriously wrong with your penis, a penile extender is probably the better option between the two.

A penis extender is a safer, more affordable, and completely non-invasive option compared to surgery, where you’re literally putting your life (and your penis) on the line.

Surgery is the better option if you have an actual medical condition.

But in this case, you should be speaking to a registered health professional!

So as for the age-old question of penis extenders versus surgery, it really depends on your reason for wanting to explore the realm of penile enhancement.

It’s important to conduct your own research, read about penis extenders, the different systems available, and all their pros and cons, and compare that with some research about penis enhancement surgery.

Then, and only after some careful deliberation, will you be able to determine for yourself whether a penis extender or surgery is the right option for you.

That said, if you do opt for surgery, make sure to consult with qualified and experienced medical professionals or surgeons.

So no back-alley medical procedures, or asking friends to hold your beer while you operate on yourself.

Otherwise, you’ll probably end up with a mangled penis…

And yes, a mangled penis is about as bad as it sounds!

Are Penis Extenders Recommended By Physicians?

Recommending a penis extender or any other type of male enhancement device is most likely not the first thing that comes to mind for most physicians.

In fact, most doctors will probably tell you not to worry about the size of your penis.

After all, doctors are trained to prioritize your overall health and well-being above all else, including the shape and size of your penis!

In some cases, a medical professional may suggest the use of a penis extender as a non-invasive and low-risk option for men who are looking to achieve a larger penis.

In some cases, these devices may also be recommended as postoperative care for men who have undergone prostate surgery.

So if you’re considering a penis extender, it’s a good idea to talk about it with a qualified medical professional first to ensure that it’s a safe and appropriate option for you.

Your doctor or healthcare provider can help you explore all possible options, and determine the best course of action for you.

Are penile traction devices or penis stretchers safe?

Penile traction devices, also known as penis extenders, are considered safe when used according to the manufacturer’s direction, and especially if under the care of a trained medical professional.

But as with any type of body modification procedures, there are some risks involved.

So if you’re considering using a penis extender, I strongly encourage you to consult with a qualified medical professional.

And always approach any new penis enlargement method with caution and common sense.

Are there any natural ways to ensure penis enlargement?

Unfortunately, while there are hundreds, if not thousands of natural supplements or different products sold online that claim to help men obtain larger penises, most of these do not work and will only be a waste of your money.

There are some things you can do that can help improve your overall health, the way your body (and penis) look, and the way you feel about your body.

For example, Kegels can help you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which can lead to stronger hard-ons and better control over your orgasms.

So they won’t help you get a bigger penis, but they can help you have better sex!

Additionally, exercising, losing weight, and grooming are also all-natural ways to help make your penis look bigger and healthier!

Just remember that if you ever see any pills, lotions, gels, or creams claiming to be a natural way to increase penis size or girth, they are not to be trusted!

Why should penis exercises and a penis extender be used together?

Using penis exercises and a penis extender at the same time can increase your odds of experiencing better results, and improve your overall sexual health and well-being.

Exercises like Kegels can help improve blood flow and erectile function.

Whereas a penis extender will provide a gentle, constant stretch to the tissues of the penis, promoting cell growth, which can potentially lead to permanent size gains.

Together, doing Kegels and using an extender will ensure that you have the best chance of achieving your desired results.

At the very least, if the extender doesn’t work for you, you’ll still be on the right path by having a stronger pelvic floor, and better control over your orgasms.

Can penis enlargement devices treat erectile dysfunction?

Penile extenders may help men suffering from erectile dysfunction. There is some evidence that wearing a penile traction device may help with your boner problems, by promoting better circulation and improved cell health.

I can’t say for sure whether or not wearing a penile traction device will help you with your erection problems.

The one thing that I do know is that wearing an extender can promote better cardiovascular health and healthier cells in your penis, which may help men who suffer from a soft wiener.

On the other hand, if your erectile problem is caused by fear or anxiety over your penis being too small, then using an extender may also give you a boost of confidence, which might just do the trick.

But realistically, if your troubles are caused by a medical condition, then an extender device is unlikely to help.

Treating Peyronie’s disease with penis traction devices

Peyronie’s disease is defined as a severe curvature of the penis. And luckily, penile traction devices are known to be effective in helping men achieve straighter penises

So it turns out that using a penile traction device to treat extreme penile curvature might not be such a stretch after all!

In some men diagnosed with the condition, using penile traction therapy has proven to be a safe and reliable treatment.

Are penis extenders legal?

Yes, as long as you’re 18 or older, there’s nothing illegal or wrong about buying a penis extender.

At least, I’m not currently aware of any laws in any countries specifically banning penis extenders.

So I really believe it’s safe to say they’re legal!

That said, I recommend buying penile traction devices only from reputable manufacturer websites, like Jes-Extender, Phallosan, or SizeGenetics.

So, if you want to use a penis enlargement extender to give yourself a little extra length and girth, you really don’t have to worry about breaking any laws.

How Does Your Penis Size Measure Up?

Let’s face it, every man is unique just like a snowflake or a fingerprint. And just like snowflakes and fingerprints, penises come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes too.

Some men have big ones, some men have small ones, some are straight as an arrow, and others have a bit of a curve.

And you know what? That’s perfectly okay too!

There are obviously real medical conditions that require intervention, such as a micropenis or buried penis.

But most of your penises, even if you think they’re too small, are perfect in their own way.

So while there’s nothing wrong with exploring the idea of using a penis extender, it’s also important to find satisfaction with what you’ve already got in your pants.

You should learn to love the size of your dick, just the way it is, instead of constantly looking for ways to get a bigger penis.

Remember, the size of your penis doesn’t define you as a man, and it certainly doesn’t determine your worth in the bedroom.
