Penis Enlargement Through the Ages - a Historical Perspective


Many people believe that the phenomenon of male genital enhancement is a modern development and a result of today's changing views of human sexuality. They believe that men nowadays have suddenly developed a sort of male vanity, perhaps due to heightened sexual activity in present day society. However, this proposition is entirely false. While modern society has acquired a more liberated and intense state of sexual activity, male enhancement is, by no means, a new concept.

As far back as the Ancient Greek period, there was an awareness of, and interest in, the dimensions of the male penis. Though the ancient Greeks actually preferred small genitals, they nonetheless exerted extra effort in ensuring that their sexual organs remained healthy. Their refined and delicate tastes led them to view small penises as aesthetically superior over large ones. During this period, young men exercised naked and they protected their penises by stretching the prepuce over the glans and fastening it, using a ribbon to the penile base.

Around two thousand years ago, the practice of hanging weights on the penis began to gain popularity among several tribes in Africa. It is believed by many researchers that this practice goes as far back as ancient Egypt, wherein the pharaohs themselves used it to increase their sexual prowess. Weight hanging simply means hanging devices at the end of the penis in order stretch the tissues that comprise the penile shaft. These methods involving weights or more primitive processes did offer the potential for new tissue growth. However, since the application of stretching force was uncontrolled, not only were the results unpredictable but often serious damage to the penis would occur.

Safer and less drastic methods for male genital enhancement were also developed in ancient times. One is the application or ingestion of herbal aphrodisiacs and the other is the employment of penis exercises. The vast selection of treatments offered by Chinese herbal medicine included ginseng and yohimbe, which are used even in present times to enhance penis size, penis erections and the sexual appetite. Modern day pills, patches and topical oils for penis and erection enhancement contain a mixture of these herbs to achieve natural and painless male enhancement. Aside from these sexual effects, these herbal treatments are also known to either prevent or treat conditions like tuberculosis, kidney disorders, heart disorders and diabetes.

The ancient Arabic civilizations also placed great importance on penile dimensions. Young Arab boys were given lessons in the penis exercises called Jelq, when they were finally reaching sexual maturity. The Jelq involves massaging the semi-erect penis in a rhythmic and regular manner, enhancing blood pressure within the shaft. The effect of this technique appears in approximately a month, provided that it is done regularly and correctly.

Lastly, in the early 20th century, the penis enlargement pump was invented by an Austrian called Otto Ledever. This marks the beginning of modern equipment use in this area of cosmetic treatment. The penis pump basically creates a vacuum and causes the cells to swell with blood. With prolonged use, this technique was shown to have lasting results. However, there are several potential hazards in this method of penis enlargement.

These techniques are still present today in various forms. Pills, patches and topical oils, based on well-researched combinations of herbs, are widely available. Penis enlargement exercises are among the safest, most popular and effective penile enhancement methods. Successful results from these methods are well documented.

 

Penis traction, the most effective penis enlargement technique known to medical science, owes its origins to the ancient techniques of enlarging body parts by stretching. Various tribal peoples used various forms of traction to gradually transform their bodies: enlarge the lips and earlobes, expand the nose and its openings, lengthen the neck, the fingers and the penis. Modern medicine uses a much more refined and controlled version of this same process in a number of applications: to grow new skin for grafting by gradually stretching tissue; to expand natural tissue for reconstructive surgery; to facilitate healing. And recently, it has been successfully developed for penis enlargement.
 

The history of penile enlargement enables us to have a better perspective of each technique's background and effectiveness. With this in mind, men can ascertain for themselves, which technique will be best suited for their purpose.
