ADMIT it, you've been in the changing room with the lads and you've wondered whether or not you 'size' up to the competition.
It's a common feeling, with many men taking to the internet to find out if and how they can extend the size of their penis.

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 – you've heard the saying "mow the lawn to make the tree look bigger", well that's exactly what trimming your pubic hair will do.
- 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.

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