The weight hanging technique is perhaps the oldest method existing in the world that has been used so popularly for enlarging the penis. There are evidences that the ancient pharaohs of Egypt have hung weights on their reproductive organ for whole days in order to make them longer. And the evidence is not just with the reproductive organ too. African tribes have used tight necklaces to lengthen their necks, and similarly some tribes in India have hung heavy earrings in order to make their ears longer. Using weights to make the tissues of the body longer is not at all a new phenomenon.
Contrary to popular belief, hanging weights has nothing to do with gravity. The organ does not become erect because it is subjected to the gravitation force. But the main reason is that the tissues of the human body are quite adaptable. They can adapt themselves to changing environmental conditions, and over time, such changes can become permanent. As the weights keep on expanding the tissues of the organ constantly, after some time, the tissues will become loosened and will hang better. This will give the impression of a longer organ. Also, the tissues will be able to open up better. During erection, this will allow them to become better engorged with blood. Hence, the organ will become longer when erect than usual. Another long term benefit of organ extension by weight hanging is that the weights will stimulate the penile cells to multiply. This will increase the overall bulk of the penis, and result in increased tissue mass.
Manufacturers of penile weights have conducted several test experiments on sample subjects to validate their products. In one such statistical test, it was seen that an increase of about 1.25 inches was observed in a sample space of 18 men over a period of 4 ½ months. The weights were hung from the penises of these men for 12 hours a day, and for seven days of the week.
There are risks associated with such weight-hanging too. The most significant risk with hanging weights to the organ is that the weight could become too much, and could actually damage the organ in the long run. If the weight is much, then it could lead to the organ becoming narrower. So, even if it becomes longer, it will become narrower. For most women, girth of the organ is more important than its length. There could also be problems of circulation of blood if the weight becomes so much that is begins constricting the blood vessels. Such damage could become permanent, leading to necrosis, that is, death of the organ.
Another risk is that the weight is usually attached to the middle shaft of the organ. If the attachment is too tight, then it may reduce blood flow to the glans of the organ. This can lead to infections in the organ, and also a gangrenous situation. If this happens, then even amputation might be necessitated. However, this eventuality occurs only when men use inferior quality weight-hanging products available in the market, or make their own weights at home. If you are planning to go for weight hanging for your organ, then you must rely only on branded products from reputable companies and not make your own improvisations or buy cheap products from sleaze shops.
The problem with weights is that they focus only on the length of the organ, and the girth is neglected. That could in fact make the organ off-putting for women. However, improvisations have been made to increase the girth of the organ also, along with the length. Such stretching equipment work in conjunction with penis weights. Using both of them together will elongate as well as stretch the organ. That will bring about a significant increase in their length as well as their girth.
For busy men, weight hanging could be a very unsuitable thing to do. Weights need to be hung for long hours each day for several weeks. Since this should be done in privacy, it is not possible to accommodate that much time. That is the reason why weight hanging is not so popular.
Penis weights are also not that cheap. A simple weight hanging device would cost up to $1000 and if you plan to go in for the stretching device also, then that would be a further $300 at least. Given the long amount of time you have to give this technique and the heavy costs you would have to make, weight hanging doesn’t seem to be that practical an option. Then, there are also the various health risks that need to be considered. There's quite a high chance that a person who buys a weight hanging equipment may not actually use it, just because it is too difficult to find time for the technique.
Far safer and cheaper are the herbal supplements for penis enlargement that are available in the market today. These herbal supplements work by improving the blood circulation to the organ, which over a period of time will make the organ grow longer and also thicker.
