This is the average penis size in the UK in inches and in centimetres

Data from Google Trends revealed that searches for “penis enlargement” went up by over 100 per cent between 2021 and 2022, while people searching for penis enlargement pills in the UK also shot up by 44 per cent.

Typing the question into Google will probably bring up many options.

Some – like ‘jelqing’ or lotions and pills – might not work or even be unsafe to use.

Others suggest you get surgery to make your penis bigger – and let’s face it the thought of putting your todger under the knife can be a scary one.

But what if we told you there was a way to make your member look bigger without the pain (or rather, fear) of surgery down there?

According to the NHS, there are a few simple – and painless ways – to add the illusion of a few extra inches.

It’s a simple three-step plan that every guy can follow.

“Many men who worry about the size of their penis generally have overall body image issues,” Professor Kevan Wylie, a sexual medicine consultant, said.

“What happens is that they tend to focus their poor body image on their penis.

“Often, counselling can make a real difference to the patient by building self-esteem, correcting distorted views about body image and learning more about what makes people attractive.”

Here’s what you can do in the meantime to increase your size

Trim your pubes – if you’ve heard the saying “mow the lawn to make the tree look bigger”, trimming your pubic hair can do exactly that.
Banish the beer belly – losing weight is a great way to make your todger look bigger. It’s not going to look as impressive if you have a beer belly hanging over it.
Get fit – not only will getting fit make you look better, but you’ll also feel better. It goes without saying that if you’re feeling sexy your love life will also benefit.

While these tips won’t actually make your penis physically bigger, it will just make it appear bigger.

If you really want to add extra inches down there you should speak to a GP about the options available.

It’s also a good idea to speak to a counsellor about how you are feeling – often worries about penis size stem from deeper underlying self-esteem issues.

The average penis size in the UK is between 3.5-5.8 inches, which might surprise you.

Experts at Chemist Click said penis size can’t be explained.

“While there has been some significant scientific research attributed to the reasonings behind penis size variations, the truth of the matter is that – much the way our individual heights vary – the length and girth of our sexual reproductive organs is a mystery, encoded largely in genetics and biology.

If you still want to increase your size though, there are things you can look into.

1. Pills and lotions

There are a number of pills and lotions you can buy that contain hormones, that claim to make the penis larger.

However, very little evidence suggests these work and may even contain dangerous substances.

Prof Wylie told the NHS they’re a “complete waste of time”.

Meanwhile, pills like Viagra won’t increase the size of your penis, but they may improve blood flow to it and help you hold an erection if you struggle to maintain one in the first place.

2. Penis pumps

Penis pumps are placed over the penis, then it pumps out the air to create a vacuum.

This draws blood into the penis and makes it swell.

Penis pumps are sometimes used as a short-term fix for erectile dysfunction because they make the penis hard.

But prolonged use can damage the tissues in the penis, making your erections weaker, so it’s not hugely recommended.

Prof Wylie said there is very little evidence to suggest pumps give you extra length in the long run.

Jessica Yih, a urologist who specialises in men’s sexual health, told Insider that pumps are commonly used together with a penis ring.

Penis rings are placed around the base of the penis to help keep the blood in the penis longer during an erection.

3. Extenders

Hold on if you’re a bit weak-stomached, boys.

Penile extenders involve placing a weight or small extending frame on the flaccid penis to stretch it.

Yes, you are essentially stretching the flesh of your manhood.

“There’s some evidence that traction devices can have some impact, particularly with men who are smaller in size,” Prof Wylie said.

“Some patients using traction devices for six months have noticed a gain in size of 1-2cm. However, such treatments shouldn’t be started without the supervision of a doctor.”

If you use extenders the wrong way you could damage the flesh of your penis, which can be disastrous for your sex life.

Size doesn’t matter – your mentality does

Experts at Chemist Click said the size of the penis, doesn’t really affect sexual function.

Despite this, it can increase the risk of sexual problems.

Studies have shown that people who think their penises are small are more likely to have low self-esteem, performance anxiety, relationship problems, and ED.

They are also less likely to let others, including doctors, look at their penis.

Trusting in the confidence of both medical professionals and your partner can go a long way towards re-establishing a healthy perception with your penis. Whether you’re concerned about length, girth or performance, rest assured you’re not alone.

4. Jelqing

‘What?’ we hear you say.

Somewhat similar to extenders, jelqing is when you repeatedly pull a flaccid penis using your thumb and index finger to increase length.

The idea behind it is that it increases the blood capacity of the penis and therefore makes it bigger.

But just like with lotions and pills, there’s little evidence to suggest it works.

5. Surgery

There are two options when you have surgery – you can increase the length or the girth of your penis.

To increase the girth doctors can inject fat taken from other parts of the body into your member, but studies have found that it can cause long-term disfigurement if the fat doesn’t distribute properly.

To increase your length surgeons can cut the ligament that attaches your penis to the pubic bone and perform a skin graft to give you extra length.

It might give you an extra 2cm, but it may also make your erection point lower than before.

“A lot of men who have this treatment don’t truly appreciate this loss of angle,” Prof Wylie added.

“It can make sex quite uncomfortable. You’ve got to do a lot more manoeuvring with your partner. The advantage of a 2cm gain in flaccid length is far outweighed by the loss of angle of erection.”

According to Superdrug Online Doctor, you can only get penis enlargement surgery via the NHS if you have a micro-penis, measuring less 2.8 inches – or 7 cm. That qualifies very few Brits for a free penis enlargement procedure.

This means that in most cases, you’ll have to pay privately for it. But if you think you fit the bill for NHS penis enlargement, you can speak to your GP for a referral to a urologist.
