Penis Stretching And Enlargement : Origin And History.
A lot of people believe that our fascination with penis enhancement is due to our changing sexuality as human beings. They believe that, possibly due to our culture’s modern obsession with sex, men have become more insecure about their bodies and wish to change them. This proposition is, however, completely untrue. As a society we are definitely more intensely sexual than we were, but the idea of male genital modification is definitely not a modern one.
So, penis enlargement is as old as mankind
The Ancient Greeks, even though they were around hundreds of years ago, still awarded special treatment to the penis.
Despite the fact that, in Ancient Greece, small penises were considered more aesthetically pleasing, they still took extra care in ensuring the genitalia stayed healthy.
The refined taste of the Ancient Greeks led to them to find smaller penises more attractive than large ones (!!). In order to protect their genitals from harm, young men would exercise naked and would stretch their prepuce over the glans, securing it at the base of the penis with a ribbon.
2000 years ago, in Africa, they were already stretching their penises
African tribes started the popular practice of weight hanging around 2000 years ago. Some historians trace this technique as far back as Ancient Egypt, where the pharaohs would employ this practice to enhance their sexual pleasure.
All weight hanging involved was weighting the end of the penis, in order to stretch and lengthen the tissue of the penile shaft. This technique has been proven very successful in improving the length of the penis; however it also negatively affects the girth measurement.
Much more importantly, weight hanging has a negative effect on blood circulation within the cells of the penile tissue; if the blood isn’t circulating properly, neither is necessary oxygen.
And more refined Chinese men
Safer and less drastic techniques were also carried out in ancient times in order to enhance the male genitalia.
The use of aphrodisiac herbs was one, and specially designed penile exercises the other.
Chinese herbalists provide a vast choice of supplements that increase penile dimensions and improve the sex drive, two of which are still used today – ginseng and yohimbe. Treatments available today, such as pills patches and oils for topical application, will contain one or both of these magical herbs that will increase penis size naturally and painlessly. Kidney and heart disease, diabetes and tuberculosis also respond favourably to treatment by these herbs.
The ancient Arabs placed a lot of importance on the size of the male genitalia
Penile dimensions were also very important to ancient Arabic people. Jelq, a penile exercise, was taught to the young Arab boys when they were coming of age. Blood pressure within the shaft was improved by the rhythmic and regular massage of the semi-erect penis.
Otto, and his pump
Lastly, in the early 20 th century, the penis enlargement pump was developed by an Austrian named Otto Ledever. This development was the beginning of modern equipment use for this form of cosmetic treatment.
Fast forward to the present day, and you will see that these techniques are still around in various different forms.
Learning about each method’s background and history will help you to gain perspective on them. With a basic knowledge of penis enlargement in history, men will be able to effectively judge which technique is most appropriate for their needs.
