Every man would like to be thought of as a virile animal, but for those with a small penis it can be embarrassing to take off your clothes. There are exercises that can naturally increase both the length and girth of your penis, but they must be performed properly in order to be effective.
If you are experiencing serious medical symptoms, seek emergency treatment immediately.
The website MaleEnhancement.org reports that this technique is an effective natural enhancement exercise 2. It is performed while your penis is almost completely erect, since this exercise can cause injury if performed on a fully erect member. Apply plenty of lubrication to your penis and use your thumb and forefinger to form the “okay” sign at the base of your penis. Slightly squeeze your penis at the base and then pull your thumb and forefinger down the length of your shaft. Stop when you reach the head of your penis and repeat with your other hand. The website notes that each individual stroke should take several seconds, and recommends beginners start with 100 strokes. Over time, increase this to 500 strokes.

This technique is recommended as an effective method to increase the length of your penis by the website 4 Men’s Health 1. It is performed while your penis is not erect, and should be repeated between 10 and 15 times to be effective. Grab your flaccid penis around the head and pull it slightly forward until your penis is stretched to its maximum comfortable limit. Hold this stretch for about 15 seconds before releasing the stretch. The website Free Penis Enlargement Guide suggests shaking your penis vigorously after the stretch to help relax the muscles 1. You can also stretch your penis to the right and left during this exercise, according to the penis enlargement website 1.
This exercise uses the urge to ejaculate during stimulation to help increase penis size, according to MaleEnhancement.org. It is performed by holding back your ejaculate by holding your palm firmly over the head of your penis as you feel you are about to ejaculate. Repeated use of this technique can cause the stretching of tissues inside your penis that will result in increased size, according to the website.
