You may still be seeing those bogus spam ads. Apparently, there are a lot of lotions, creams, and oils that are applied to the male genitals to increase the penis size. However, the research into such items is limited, and the information to support extraordinary claims of penis size increases is scarce if existent at all.
There are reasons to believe that some creams might be beneficial, but there is no empirical evidence for them to work to actually increase penis length and girth.
PENIS ENLARGEMENT CREAMS, LOTIONS, AND OILS SCIENCE
Are there any reasons why lotions and oils may work to increase penis size?
Usually, to apply the cream effectively, one would remove pubic hair, this alone increases the look and feel of the penis. A by-product of utilizing creams, lotions, and oils helps make the male more familiar with his penis. This creates assurance and familiarity with the organ. The more familiar the male is with his penis, the more confident the male is with the penis size. Confidence makes the erection stronger, therefore increasing penis size.
Scientifically speaking, the penile soft tissue is a complex sponge-like material. There are plenty of penis enlargement creams out there but not a single manufacturer has explained how exactly the capacity of this tissue is expanded with the application of the cream. Ancient secrets and pornstar secrets all sound very dodgy. It is of course a marketing ploy to get attention, to target men low on confidence.
That being said, rubbing substances into the skin and perhaps reaching as deep as the soft tissue may have some benefits. Since the process of rubbing the active substance into the penile tissue may have a similar effect to that of penis exercises.
Penis exercises, also known as jelqing have not been shown empirically to have worked in increasing penis size. However, numerous reviews online of men who have tried jelqing, have praised the method and its potential.
What could these penis enlargement creams possibly contain to increase the size of the penile tissue?
Some creams and lotions claim to contain, HGH – human growth hormone, which in overabundance has been linked to cancer. Testosterone, a male hormone, could be theoretically linked to penis growth, however only during puberty. Our bodies are way too complex for one particular hormone to work via injection or by rubbing it into the penile tissue.
IF JELQING WORKS WITH LUBRICANTS, MAY JELQING WORK WITH PENIS ENLARGEMENT CREAMS, LOTIONS, AND OILS?
If we assume that jelqing – the penis enlargement exercises work and lubricants help the process, the same or better effect could be achieved by using creams instead of lubricants. On the other hand, the cream, lotion, or oil could be harmful. So be careful. Use penis enlargement creams at your own risk.
On the other hand, familiarizing yourself with your penis could also have a positive effect.
ALTERNATIVES TO PENIS ENLARGEMENT CREAMS
When it comes to devices that work, penis pumps have been demonstrably shown to work as a side effect in studies treating erectile dysfunction, using them along with jelqing, especially in hot water might be a better option.
Pills have not been shown to work and penis enlargement surgery is very expensive and very risky. If you want to increase your penis size, we recommend penis pumps as a safe/proven alternative. Using penis pumps could possibly increase penis size modestly.
