An Obligatory Rant

First of all, thanks for taking some time off of PornHub to come visit this website! Now that's just a guess, but it is likely that you are interested in penis extenders because of such websites in the first place. You see, the porn industry has given a massive push to another questionable Internet-based industry; the penis enlargement monkey business!

Preying on the persistent insecurity and credulousness of many men, the Internet is loaded with useless pills, creams, and all sorts of contraptions that promise to be a magic bullet for a huge manhood, only to end up being a huge disappointment and monetary loss for the misguided buyer. I could go on with this rant, but that's probably not why you are here, so let's take a quick detour back to our topic.

The Hidden Secret Behind Review Websites

Before we examine the specific products, I'd like to uncover a bit of a secret that is usually kept hidden on many other "review" websites. While there are hundreds of review websites dedicated to penis extenders and other male enhancement products, almost none of them are as honest as they may seem.

The truth is; all of the glorious reviews of penis extenders are created by affiliate marketers who get paid for every customer they refer to the product's website, and they get paid big time! There are millions of dollars to be made every year from penis enlargement products, and many companies rely primarily on their affiliates to create the hype and demand for their products.

Now, because most companies and their affiliates are just looking to get a slice of the cake and essentially only motivated by the prospect of making huge profits, the ethics bar in this industry is very low, if it even exists!

Let me break it down for you in numbers. The following list shows how much each of the "best" penis extenders pay their affiliates as a per-sale commission:

  • SizeGenetics, Jes Extender, Male Edge: 50% commission per sale.
  • X4 Labs: 40% commission per sale.
  • Phallosan Forte: 40% commission per sale.
  • PeniMaster PRO: 25% commission per sale.

You see, the average pay is $100+ per sale for products like SizeGenetics and Phallosan, and THAT is the first and foremost reason why many "review" websites rate these as the "best" of penis extenders.

I AM myself also an affiliate of these companies, and there is nothing wrong with being an affiliate and getting paid for referrals. The problem is that many affiliates are blinded by greed and the big checks they receive to the point where downright lying and deceit to make more sales become acceptable!

I am just too sick of all the unethical marketing and false claims in this murky industry, and I thought I'd tell the truth as is.

You should not trust any of the review websites out there, even the ones that sound a little more sincere or personal than others, because at the end of the day they are sellers in disguise.

You don't even have to trust me since I am also an affiliate who gets paid, but take a good look at each product's website and see which ones look more gimmicky with tall unsubstantiated claims, and which ones look more reasonable and helpful.

A while ago, if you asked me which penis extender is best, I'd say SizeGenetics and give you a link to their website. But of course, like other review sites, I'd tell you that mostly because they pay top commissions, and I wouldn't mind all the sales BS, unproven claims, dubious before & after photos, lack of proper usage instructions, and the fact that they allow their affiliates to make all sorts of false claims and promises.

Today, if you ask me the same question, I'd say PeniMaster PRO is the most decent penis extender, and while they pay much lower commissions, I am morally comfortable with this recommendation as this is what I genuinely believe (more details below).

Before you buy any device, an important fact you should keep in mind is that the efficacy of penis extenders varies and depends on individual compliance of the user's body. Some users may notice a slight improvement in length (less than 1 inch) after months of regular use, and some users may not gain any results. In short, it may very much be a waste of time and money for you -- only one way to find out!

I just wanted to make that point loud and clear, and you are free to give any product a try after all! Further down this page you can find more details about false advertising and scams, as well as common questions and answers about penis extenders.

Rundown of The 5 Top-Selling Penis Extenders

Most penis extenders, or traction devices, on the market have the same fundamental working mechanism, but there are a few things you should take into account and look for when shopping for a penis extender.

Comfort is the most crucial feature you should consider. You could buy a device made of gold (literally, there are some gold-coated devices!), but if it is not comfortable to wear for long hours then it will be useless. Other considerations are quality, spare parts, customer service, and of course, price.

With all that in mind, the following are five of the top-selling penis extenders found on the Internet today with a quick review of their features, pros and cons. Which one is the best can be a subjective question, but if you ask me, I'd say it is the one listed first below; the PeniMaster PRO.

False Advertising and Online Scams

There is a lot of false advertising going on at review sites and forums, so I would like to clarify a few points here:

  1. Results of penile traction therapy (penile stretching) vary for each individual and success is not guaranteed! Gains will depend on how well your body responds and complies to external stimulation, and some users may not achieve any significant results.
  2. All stretching devices deliver similar results. There is no product that will give you "better" or "faster" or "bigger" results than others. As long as it is functional, it is then up to your body's compliance.
  3. Some devices are relatively more comfortable than others, but you will experience some degree of discomfort or even pain with all devices. The claim that you can wear it for hours without feeling anything is not true.
  4. Do not trust any before & after pictures on review websites! Users who have achieved results do not need to prove anything to anyone. Most "proof" photos published online are fake/dishonest and used to market a certain product.
  5. Do not be suckered by guarantees of adding 3-4 inches to your manhood. Most users do not gain more than 1 inch in length, if any.
  6. Online marketers play on the insecurity that most men have about their penis size. You probably have a large enough penis to please your lady - if you know how to use it ;) - and you don't really need it to be any bigger.

Penis Extenders FAQ

The following are some of the most common questions about penis extenders with brief answers.

What Exactly is a Penis Extender?

An extender or traction device for the penis is a small tool that can be worn onto the penis to stretch it with constant tension force.

These devices come in different shapes and forms, but they all share the same principle, which is to stretch/pull the penile shaft outwards (away from its base) by holding it from around its head (glans).

Penile traction is not medically recognized as a treatment for small penis or micropenis, but there have been a few clinical studies that proved the efficacy of extenders in lengthening the penis. This is the only non-surgical method of penis enlargement that may produce significant results for some men.

How is a Penis Extender Used?

There are different suggested routines, and some also recommend performing manual penis exercises to maximize gains. You should refer to your product's manual for recommended usage instructions.

But generally, you will have to wear the extender for about 4-6 hours a day, 4-6 days a week.

Most devices are small and flexible enough to be worn under clothes, which will allow you to perform your daily activities while wearing the concealed extender. But this is only practical for men whose job does not require a lot of physical movement.

It is important that new users start with a gradual stretching routine until their penis is ready to endure long hours of continuous stretching. For example, first week: 1-2 hours; second week: 2-3 hours; third week: 3-4 hours; fourth week: 4-6 hours.

Again, your product should come with more details on how to use it properly.

What Results Can You Get?

As clinically shown, after about 6 months of traction therapy you can expect an increase of up to one inch in penis length. Some users keep going for one year or more, and there are unverified claims of more than 2 inches of growth, although that is not likely.

Some important notes to keep in mind:

  • It is unknown whether the enlargement occurs due to tissue growth or as a result of stretching out a portion of the shaft's root that extends inside the pelvis.
  • Results vary for each individual. Effectiveness depends on how well your body responds to external stimulation, so not everyone may see significant results.
  • Extenders only increase penile length but not girth. Some users also perform manual exercises or use pumps to promote girth enlargement.
  • Penis extenders may help improve penile curvature (Peyronie's disease). They are not an approved treatment for this condition, but some patients saw improvement in clinical trials.
  • Most online reviews are foxy sales pitches created by affiliate marketers (often posing as genuine consumers). Beware of misleading before/after pictures and overstated claims like "gain X inches in Y months", and such!

Be advised, again: A penis extender will not (for sure) increase your penis size. It may increase your penis size. Success is not guaranteed and it largely depends on the compliance of the user's body. Younger men (16-30 years old) are more likely to have success with penis extenders, and while there is no specific age restriction, I would not recommend this method to men over 40 as it may not yield significant results.

Are Penis Extenders Safe?

Nothing is safe unless used safely! If you apply too much tension force on your shaft you can cause damage to erectile tissue, blood vessels and/or nerves. A warning sign of dangerous use is constant pain or numbness in the penis.

It is normal to feel a little discomfort while wearing the device, but it should not be painful. If you experience remarkable pain in the penis it means you are applying too much traction force or something else is wrong. That may cause damage to your penile tissue and lead to shrinkage instead of enlargement.

Another thing you have to watch out for is not blocking circulation to your glans. This is a common risk with low quality devices that do not come with comfort padding for the strap and will just "choke" your glans. You should remove the device every hour or so to restore blood flow to the glans in case circulation gets blocked or reduced.

Vacuum Head Attachment or Strap Fastener?

There are two types of penis stretching devices that are commonly used; those which have a vacuum head attachment (suction cap), and those with a rubber strap or silicone noose fastener.

Devices that use a vacuum head attachment - like PeniMaster PRO - are the newest on the market, and they have proved to be considerably more comfortable and secure than strap/noose-based extenders.

However, some users still prefer the conventional devices that come with a strap, noose, and/or Velcro fastener. They can both work well once you figure out the most comfortable setting for you, but you will likely be hassling with more slippage issues when using a strap or noose. Vacuum fasteners can also accidentally come off, but much less often.
