Hanging weights on the penis is probably the oldest method of penis enhancement in history. As far back as the days of the pyramids, Egyptian cuneiform glyphs reveal that pharaohs hung heavy stones on their penis’s to enlarge them. At that time, the purpose was not so much to please their sexual companion as it was to suggest to the populace that penile massiveness was next to godliness.
Even today, some African tribes take pride in their ability to stretch body parts. Well-known is their use of body rings worn in the ears and mouth. And also around the neck, added one at a time, gradually stretching the neck ligaments and muscles until the wearer looked more like a giraffe.
The desire for a longer penis is universal, but not for the same reasons.
Although similar ring devices were initially used for penile adornment, the weight of these rings was also elongating the penis. And so, the tribes had something much bigger to worship. In fact, some pygmy tribes in the Amazon have been using penile weights for centuries in ritual ceremonies worshipping the penis, and in efforts to compensate for their small statures. Apparently, size does matter to many cultures.
Over the years, though man’s reason for altering what nature has provided has changed–apparently his penis size hasn’t. Mother Nature provided just enough of a penis for man to accomplish the acts of excretion and reproduction. She didn’t know it was to become a universal symbol of prowess and masculinity.
For now, just think of the penis as a muscle, not a brain.
Stretching the penis using weights is not as simple as it looks. Oh, the body will cooperate. Body tissues, and ligaments are pretty pliable, even the ones around the penis. And if you have any experience in the gym at all, you know that with exercise, muscles also are easily stretched and elongated.
The penis is no different. In time, using weights properly, it too can be stretched, allowing more blood to engorge the penis. A gain of 1 to 2 inches is not unheard of. In a statistical trial of 18 males conducted by a weight device manufacturer, after only 4 1/2 months, there was an average gain in length of 1.25 inches!
A prescribed amount of weight was determined for each individual. Then, it was secured to the penis mid-section and suspended for 12 hours a day, everyday for 18 weeks. Discretely tucked away in loose-fitting pants, it was, however, a heavy weight to carry around– yet not one volunteer complained or was unhappy with the results.
You don’t want to make a do-it-yourself kit for this one.
There’s much more to it than taping a 2-lb. dumbbell to the tip of a penis and waiting for results. Penile weight hanging devices are made by reputable medical device manufacturers who have tested their equipment for results and safety. Don’t experiment with making your own device under any circumstance. Whenever you interfere with the circulatory system by cutting off or altering the blood flow, which is what you’re doing in the process of stretching– you are opening up the possibilities for complications.
These are some of the more serious risks involved in penis hanging:
- Loss of girth. The stretching of the penis to any sizeable extent may well cause a loss in girth or thickness. An attribute that many sexual partners prefer over penis length. And since elongations are not reversible and may only be corrected by surgery, be sure you are willing to sacrifice one for the other.
- Injury to glans. Normally the weight is hung from the middle of the penis. If the resistance is too taut, it could diminish blood movement to the penis tip or glans. And a body part deprived of blood and life-giving oxygen can be dangerous.
- Gangrene. If loss of blood to an area is substantial and continues for a length of time, necrosis or tissue death may occur. This requires debridement surgery to remove the dead tissue.
- Amputation. Rare, but if the gangrenous area is ignored or neglected long enough, to prevent toxemia, and other fatal complications, a penile amputation may be necessary to save the life of the patient. And to this date, there has not been one successful, fully functional penile implant. Or donor.
