Penis enlargement , or male enhancement , is any technique aimed to increase the size of a human penis. Some methods aim to increase total length, others the shaft's girth, and yet others the glans size. Techniques include surgery , supplements, ointments , patches, and physical methods like pumping, jelqing, and traction.
