When used, a penis extender applies traction force consistently to the penis to increase its size.
It is a mechanical device that is adjusted manually to set the desired pressure.
The use of the device does not involve any radical medical or biological concept. The process is similar to how braces apply corrective pressure on your teeth.
If used according to recommendations by manufacturers and health professionals, a male extender can be used safely and without fear of harmful side effects. You can also expect gains in penis size in the vicinity of 25 mm.
If you have not seen the device before, you can think of it as a smaller version of a silicon gun, but without a leg brace or trigger.
Two rings are attached to the penis, one at the glans or head, and the other at the base. The latter merely acts as the guide ring and buttress and is typically made of plastic.
Some manufacturers add some sophistication and value to the ring by having it molded to conform to the shape of the pelvic region for extra comfort.
This also limits rotation or inclination of the device to better address the various individual shapes of penises.
On the other hand, the head ring assembly is often a more sophisticated component as it is assigned the delicate job of holding the penis head while it is being gently and slowly pulled away from the penis body.
This particular area of the human anatomy is quite sensitive and using any foreign object around it for a protracted period may lead to severe discomfort and irritation.
Thus, the leading manufacturers exert more effort in making their products as comfortable to use as possible.
The head ring is primarily made up of a circular-shaped cradle on the ventral side or underside of the glans, and an attached strap or noose that surrounds the corona.
It holds the head of the penis in place. A foam or padding layer is typically placed in-between the glans and the fastener to soften the impact on the contact area.
Longitudinal rods connect the two rings. The rods can be adjusted in two ways:
1) To conform to the penile length, rods of varying lengths are supplied. In some cases, segments can be added or removed to produce the desired length.
2) To adjust the amount of pressure exerted on the penis, a fine-tuning mechanism is involved.
Threaded sections that allow rod contraction or extension through axial rotation are put in place. The rods typically come with springs to keep the traction force constant even when the user moves or shifts.
The main feature of penis extenders is probably their safe use. Although there were reported cases in the past of burst blood vessels and tissue damage, these were due to improper use and unfortunate accidents.
Another advantage of using penis extenders over other male enhancement methods is that it does not require ingestion of questionable syrups or pills to augment the size of the penis.
Likewise, penis extenders are static mechanical devices that have no motorized or electrical parts.
