Penis Enhancement practices, part of Male Enhancement practices, are typically those activities that aim at enlarging or reshaping (parts of) the penis.
Penis Enlargement is any technique used with the goal of increasing the size of a penis. Some methods aim to increase total length and width, others to only broaden the penis (girth widening), and others again to increase the head of the penis (the glans or glans penis).
Penis Reshaping (or Penile Modeling) is about giving the head of the penis another shape — for instance: giving it the perfect “mushroom shape.” Penis Shaping may also refer to enlarging the glans or to reshaping the shaft of the penis.
There are several techniques commonly used: surgery, supplements, pills, herbal tonics, ointments, patches, and physical methods like penis pumping, penis traction, penis sheaths, stretches, massage, and so-called Jelqing. Some techniques are used for structural enlargement, others only for enlargement just before the sexual act or sexual activities.
Most men that seek penis enlargement have a normal-sized penis, but underestimate their own penis size while overestimating the average penis size. Having a so-called micropenis or having an overall negative body-image or low self-esteem can also be a reason for wanting a larger penis.
Men seeking penis enlargement may also do so to enrich their sex lives, even if their penis is of average or above average size. Additionally, couples may want partners to enlarge their penis size if they have a fetish for large penises. A larger penis may also play a role into BDSM practices (BDSM is an abbreviation for Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, and Sadism and Masochism).
Traditional massage modalities that claim to be able to enlarge or reshape the penis are, for instance, Mak Erot, Juagen Manhood Massage and Malay Urut Batin.
