Best Penis Extenders of 2018 [UPDATED]

X4 Labs Penis Extender

In this article, I review the best penis extenders of 2018.

Introduction to Penis Extenders

I felt compelled to do this write-up and share my experience using a penis extender. I was pretty average before I got started and had insecurities about my size. In fact, my penis stopped growing in 6th grade. I thought “I hope I’m still going through puberty”. Of course, I was, but my penis had stopped growing.

I measured 5.5 inches hard. I was bummed out. Most of my high school friends were over 6 inches. I was actually so embarrassed that I would face my back to everyone changing in the locker room. I didn’t want anyone to know I had a small dick.

It wasn’t until college that I started to research penis enlargement. This was back in 2004. I wasn’t gullible to buy penis pills. But I was foolish enough to buy a penis pump thinking it would give me a huge dick. It was uncomfortable and I never used it enough to get appreciable results. When I graduated from college at the age of 22 that I learned about penis extenders.

I’d only been with one girl and was still inexperienced when it came to sex. I just didn’t have the confidence to be intimate. I felt small and embarrassed. Anyways, a few years after college I decided to order a penis extender. I felt I learned enough about the science of how they worked and was convinced it would be the right decision.

Below is a write-up of the various penis extenders I’ve used. Before comparing them, it’s necessary to explain how they work and how they can increase the size of your penis.

How Do Penis Extenders Work?

An extender is a traction device that stretches the penis away from the body and holds it in place.

Over time, this leads to cellular division. There are a few changes that occur. First, the shaft of the penis becomes larger due to cellular division. Also, the chambers of the penis become bigger. The division of the cells and the expansion of the chambers contribute to increasing size.

Clinical studies have been published on penis extenders. They demonstrate those suffering from curved a penis issues can correct it in a reasonable amount of time. They also show that length and size increases are possible.

What Is The Best Penis Extender?

There’s a huge difference between a generic and premium extender. It all comes down to safety and comfort. Certainly, nobody wants to purchase an extender that came with the risk of injury or was uncomfortable. Extenders that are properly manufactured and exceptionally designed won’t have these problems. I would argue X4 Labs makes the best penis extender.

X4 Labs

X4 Labs penis extenderX4 Labs is one of the top brands and has a large selection of packages based on budget and requirements. This is the first extender I owned and still my favorite.

They’re incredibly comfortable they have a wide range of packages for discerning customers. They’ve never let me down. There’s even a package designed for beginners.

Wearing a penis extender is easy with X4 Labs because they’re so incredibly fit. You don’t have to worry about outgrowing your extender because you can always upgrade and get more extension rods as you grow bigger. All the kits come with accessories that allow you to upgrade and prolong your gains.

Keep in mind, most of X4 Labs’ products are doctor-certified and made from medical grade components. You won’t have to worry about a poorly made product that falls apart. It’s definitely not some novelty item you’d find in an adult store.

This is a precision engineered instrument to safely and effectively enlarge your penis which explains why they sell for hundreds of dollars. As a result of continuing research, X4 Labs gives away free penis extenders when users participate in their studies.

Under the terms, you must wear the device and report your results. X4 Labs also has different finance options. For instance, you can pay a 50 percent deposit and pay the rest in two or three installments. For anyone looking for budget-friendly options, this is a great opportunity.

There’s a lot of reasons why you should own an X4 Labs which I can explain more in my full review. However, one of the main advantages is the comfort factor which plays a big role in your gains.

Sizegenetics penis extenderThe SizeGenetics penis extender was nominated for the “Adult Product of the Year 2013” award. It’s been on the market for numerous years and has a reputation for being comfortable.

Sizegenetics is the most popular extender out and it’s heavily advertised. It’s even been featured in magazine and television which probably contributes to its enduring popularity.

While it’s hard to verify the authenticity of online reviews I was fortunate enough to own one and find that it lives up to the hype. In a lot of ways, it’s similar to X4 Labs with a similar level of comfort and durability.

It’s made with medical-grade components that won’t irritate the skin. It’s designed with a traction system that adjusts to provide the right amount of force.

So, why would I get this over X4 Labs? For one, it’s slightly less expensive and two, it delivers the same results. SizeGenetics has a traction system that’s safe and clinically studied.

They’ve been in business for a while and made innovative improvements. It’s safe to say they’re committed to selling a quality product. Not everyone will have the same results and some of the claims on their website are atypical.

However, if you follow the program and use as directed then you’ll see results over the next months. In fact, Sizegenetics is so confident that it works they offer a 6-month money-back guarantee.

The only catch is you have to use it as directed and document your use. Most of the time guys don’t succeed because they either wear the product incorrectly, or they don’t have a consistent routine. Some users combine other types of penis enlargement routines with SizeGenetics, and this might cloud their results.

Male Edge: Second Generation

This is a second generation penis extender manufactured in Denmark. Why is Male Edge second generation? It’s because it came from the original penis extender, JES.

The main difference is that Male Edge is a little easier to use and fits more comfortably around the penis. It comes in a stylish protective case with all the extra add-ons you would expect.

Is there any advantage to using Male Edge over other extenders? Unfortunately, no. While it’s a good device and works as intended I’m not aware of an inherent advantage over other extenders. The only benefit is a double money back guarantee.

If you use the product and don’t get results they’ll refund your money double the cost you paid. It’s a bold move on their part.

I don’t know anyone who has actually take them up. I think it’s just to demonstrate how confident they are you’ll love the results. The only downside to purchasing a Male Edge is the company is  Danish so you’ll have to pay extra for international shipping.

If you live in Europe this is an option but if you live in the states than go for a North American based company like X4 Labs.

JES Extender

JES Extender, which was first sold in 1995, is the original penis extender. It’s made in Denmark by a team of doctors and specialists.

Choose Your First Penis Extender

Don’t believe the negative things you’ve heard about penis extenders. Most of the people who share negative stories didn’t use it correctly or gave up. There’s plenty of clinical trials that show they increase penis size, thickness, and correct curvatures.

Most of these studies were done to help patients who suffered from penis curvature, but they increased their size too. If I was in the market for a new penis extender, I would consider a few things.

Ask yourself, are you willing to commit 6 months of your life wearing a penis extender daily for 6 hours? If you answered no, then you don’t have to read any further. Unfortunately, penis enlargement is like running a marathon and it takes commitment and patience.

However, if you said yes, then you’re well on your way to a permanently bigger dick. Here’s some advice on buying a penis extender.

Customer Reviews

There are several factors to consider. Among the most helpful would be reviews and testimonials from real users. It should go without saying the reviews and testimonials have to be legit.

The best place to find them is from user comments in penis enlargement forums and shopping sites.  Make sure the reviews are from verified accounts.

The top brands in the industry would be among the first I would consider. I certainly wouldn’t go with a cheap knockoff or no-name or fly-by-night company. X4 Labs and Sizegenetics are among my top two choices. Stick with valued names in the industry for quality and good results.

One thing worth mentioning is you should always use your penis extender in the recommended manner. Using it in an unsafe manner can lead to injury. I know this from personal experience. Don’t try and sleep with one at night!

Attachments and Replacement Parts

Make sure your device comes with accessories and attachments. Accessories are provided to ensure your comfort. Verify it comes with silicone straps, comfort pads, and cushions. Also, make sure replacement parts are available. Unfortunately, when these parts are frequently used, they’ll break-down or get damaged.

If your kit has replacement parts, just order more if this happens. If this isn’t possible, you’ll have to find a way to replace them on your own.

Availability of Extra Parts

Make sure the extra parts of your device are in stock. For example, all penis extenders come with rods, but what happens when you need more because your penis grow? You’ll need longer rods, right? Find a package that has different lengths so you won’t have problems.

A good extender should account for all lengths. The original built-in rods won’t suffice when you experience a lot of growth. The extra rods are easy to adjust to your new size. Consider that’s when picking your package. When you outgrow a rod, just change it so that it fits your new size.

I won’t advise an extender if it only has one built-in rod. Yes, it may be tempting to save a little money but you’ll limit your potential results.  You’ll discover it doesn’t fit your existing size.

Make sure to get one that has extension rods if you want to experience uninterrupted gains.

Penis Extender Results

penis extender resultsHow much time should I use my penis extender each day? It’s recommended to use it for 6 to 8 hours daily. Unfortunately, not everyone has 8 hours to dedicate to penis enlargement.

My daily schedule:

  • Begin the day at 9 am
  • End the day at 3 pm
  • Take a 20-minute break at noon

If you’re a beginner, don’t work too hard and strain yourself. It could stunt your growth. Instead, use it for two or three hours for the first few weeks so you can adapt. It takes discipline to wear it all day.

You might be wondering how the heck you’re going to use a penis extender all day when you have to work? Well, the good news is you can wear it at work, depending on your profession.  Or you can just wear it when you get at home.

Steps for Your Daily Routine

I’ve used the following routine and believe it’s one of the most straightforward and simplest ones around. You’ll get the right amount of penis enlargement and without the hassle.

Depending on the industry you work in wearing a penis extender might make sense. If you work in an office environment or have a sedentary job then it’s really easy.

You won’t worry about somebody noticing it. You can move around comfortably without hurting yourself. You’ll have to make a few bathroom breaks to give it a rest. This shouldn’t be a problem as it only takes minutes to put it back on.

Make this a daily part of your routine, just like you would for brushing your teeth. Put your penis extender on, go to work, and wear it until your lunch break. Then, take it off and eat. Put it back on when you’re done. When you get home it’s time to relax. Don’t forget to clean it. Good hygiene is important. Do this at least every two weeks.

My routine is convenient because it doesn’t  require you to count the hours you wear it. This routine works for a regular work week. But you can also wear it on the weekends.

What Happens When You Wear a Penis Extender

Now that you have a routine for extending your penis, what type of results should you expect? Most extenders have a base that goes against your penis. Expect a certain amount of force to be applied to the section that comes into contact with your body. This is known as Newton’s Third Law.

Since the penis extender applies force during the stretching period, it has to rest at this point of contact. Some men find this irritating. However, your body will adapt to frequent use.

When you increase the tension there’s more force on the base of the penis. So, consider doing this. If you’re a beginner, don’t stretch for a day or two. Accustom yourself to putting on the device and wearing it all day. Test it with a low force. Gradually increase the tension so you can wear it according to the aforementioned routine.

Usually, penis extending won’t cause any problems. Most would think if there was a pain, it would be due to the force. But this doesn’t happen. Your penis ligaments are flexible and adaptive.

Try doing a few manual stretching exercises before using it. You’ll get a good idea of what to expect. If you experience pain, it’s usually due to beginner mistakes. The most common one involves applying too much force. Most guys think they have to increase the force in order to get better results.

However, the opposite is true. You need less tension for a longer period of time. A harder stretching motion does not provide better results. As a matter of fact, this could actually do the opposite. It could stunt your growth by making your septum ligament too tough. When this happens, no amount of stretching will help.

How much stretching is too much?

If you feel the sharp pain in your penis, you’re applying too much force. The pain will get worse if you don’t correct it. You don’t want to cause penis fatigue. This includes your tissues, skin, and ligaments. At the beginning of your routine, there’s no discomfort.

But, after you’ve been wearing the device for around 2 to 3 hours, you’ll get tired and feel uncomfortable. If you’re a beginner, you can feel this a lot sooner because you aren’t accustomed to the tension. This is one of the things that you can expect when wearing a penis extender device the first week.

Remember, it’s best to avoid overtraining. It’s somewhat like working out at the gym. You might want to work longer, but you have to know when you’ve overtrained. You need the discipline to follow a routine so start slow and build up gradually.

Don’t try to do too much too soon. Your body will tell you when you’re overdoing it. If you have sharp pains, then stop your stretching routine and start again the next day.

If you try to wear a penis extender for a long period of time, it will irritate your groin. Once you follow the routine for a while, you’ll know when it starts to get too uncomfortable. Most guys get to this point after 3 to 4 hours and work their way up. It shouldn’t surprise you this happens. Think about it. You’re trying to stretch your penis.

This is the same thing as working out at the gym and tearing your muscles. A good gym workout is never comfortable. To some, it’s uncomfortable. But you go through the training in order to get stronger. Penis stretching does the same thing. Discipline and train yourself to get stronger.

Peyronie’s Disease and Penile Traction

According to clinical research, using a penis extender for curvature correction is safe if you follow the instructions. Clinical studies led to the discovery you could enlarge the penis permanently. Fortunately, I never suffered from a crooked penis but I have read on the forums of people using them to treat it successfully.

This is ideal because it’s non-surgical option. Not only can it correct the deformity, it can also increase your size.

Final Words

So, there you have it, everything I have learned about penis extenders.  It’s been an interesting and rewarding journey. Having a bigger dick has made me feel better about myself. I’m more secure in the bedroom. It gives me greater excitement and a positive outlook. As mentioned earlier, when I began I had an average 5.5-inch penis.

It was nothing to write home about. I wasn’t happy and it gave me a sense of insecurity. Maybe I watched too much porn but I felt like I had the smallest dick in the world.

Over the course of  6 months, I experienced a noticeable increase in my flaccid and erect state. Nearly one inch to be exact. This wasn’t an overnight success. It was a sustained daily effort to elongate my penis and follow the program to the tee. In the end, the results were worth it. I grew to nearly 6.5. My dick was big enough to hold with two hands.

I was actually looking forward to meeting women to show off my big cock! One thing I failed to mention is that if you’re more interested in girth than you should read my article on penis pumps. The new generation of water-based vacuum pumps is a lot more comfortable than their predecessors. They can do wonders for increasing your girth.

Ask yourself. Are you ready to make a commitment to a bigger penis? If you’re the type of person who’s patient and resolved then go ahead. Order a penis extender. You’ll get the results you’re looking for.
