How can I make my penis bigger?

There are lots of ways to increase the size of your penis. Some are instant, whereas others require time, patience and a few tools for the job. You can combine solutions to add not just millimeters, but entire inches to your length. Ensure you buy from a reputable company to avoid any mishaps or injuries.

Cock Rings

Tracey Cox EDGE Supreme Endurance Triple Stamina Ring Set

Cock rings (also known as "penis rings" and "love rings") are designed to sit at the base of the penis to restrict blood flow. Restricting blood flow can delay ejaculation, letting you last longer during masturbation or sex, and can also result in a firmer, larger erection. Your partner feels the benefits of this additional stimulation, while you can enjoy a longer, more intense climax.

The Lovehoney Bionic Bullet Vibrating Cock Ring is one of our most popular penis rings because it not only restricts blood flow for a rock-hard erection, but transmits powerful vibrations through smooth silicone for heightened pleasure during sex or during masturbation. You can also try a set like Get Hard Extra Thick Silicone Cock Ring Set to find the size that best suits you.

Penis Extenders

Penis extenders are perfect for adding instant length, girth and texture to your penis. Some are smooth inside, while others have ribs and nubs for extra stimulation. Penis extenders are also great for those who want to alleviate the symptoms of premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction because the extender stays rigid, despite the size or firmness of your penis inside.

Some extenders are textured, like the BASICS 2 Extra Inches Clear Textured Penis Extender, while others are more realistic looking. Some are even adjustable, and can be tailored to fit most penis sizes, like the Lovehoney Perfect Partner Unisex Hollow Strap-On. Many are compatible with strap-on harnesses, and some are open-ended for enhancing girth, but not length.

How can I be better in bed?

One of the best ways to improve your performance in bed is to feel confident, and one of the best ways to increase your confidence is by having clear, open communication with your partner.

To address issues like premature ejaculation, high penis sensitivity, or erectile dysfunction, check out some of our solutions below.

Delay Spray & Cream

Sliquid Ride BodyWorx Rock Delay Spray

Delay sprays and creams often use ingredients like benzocaine to numb the penis, making it less sensitive and ultimately helping to delay ejaculation. Just be sure to read the label, follow the instructions, and discontinue use if any irritation occurs.

Some delaying agents come as sprays, like the Sliquid Ride BodyWorx Rock Delay Spray, which should be spritzed on the head and shaft of the penis. Others come as cream, like Doc Johnson Sta-Erect Delay Cream and should be rubbed into the penis before getting started.

For safer sex along with the benefits of numbing, why not pick up Durex Performax Delay Condoms?
