Traction Extender Q & A
by George Atkinson
Mechanically based penis extenders - or traction devices as they are sometimes known - are creating a large amount of interest amongst men looking for an effective and easy way of adding some extra length and girth to their penises. Scott Trimble, of extender supplier Size Genetics, agreed to answer some of the more commonly asked questions concerning these mechanical pecker stretchers without stretching the truth (no pun intended!).
Q. How do extenders work?
A. Well, the extenders work by applying a constant tension to the penis. The human body is a very adaptive piece of engineering, it can change and adapt under stress. You may have seen examples of this, but possibly the most apparent is that of lifting weights. Working-out is a good analogy with regard to many aspects of the extender, because in effect, you're working-out your penis. Just as when we lift weights that are heavier than what we're used to, our body adapts to this new workload and builds extra muscle to help us with the task. The extender works in exactly the same way. The penis will actually manufacture new cells to adapt to the extender's force exerted on the penis. This results in a longer, thicker penis. There is simply more tissue being added.
Q. What's the reason as to why extenders have suddenly become so popular?
A. As you know, they've been around for a few years, but only recently have they gained a lot of popularity. This phenomenon is much like the experience of music groups who finally get famous. Bands are often gigging around and performing for 5 or so years before they actually get popular. Who knows why this is? Possibly because it takes a while for the music to catch on and word to spread. People generally take a while to warm up to an idea, even if it's a good one, but when they do, it becomes popular very quickly.
Q. Where was the extender invented?
A. They were invented in Europe, Denmark I believe.
Q. Can you tell us the difference between using an extender and performing manual exercises?
A. They can both deliver good results, the differences are mainly in the effort required to achieve those results. The extender is very much less effort. If you've ever done penis exercises, you'll know they take a little bit of work and persistence. It may be a labor of love, but the extender makes the whole process easier and less taxing. Second, the extender applies a constant tension over the whole length of the penis instead of the varied tension of manual exercises which can sometimes be an issue.
Q. Can extenders be used in conjunction with manual exercises?
A. They certainly can. Much like working out, fitness experts prescribe doing different kinds of exercises for each body part. To best workout the chest, bench press, incline press, decline press, dips, etc. should all be used. The same goes for the penis, the more varied your "workouts" the better, and the quicker results can be seen.
Q. Your company offers extenders with special formulation pills, what's the idea behind that?
A. Our device is the only extender to also come with specially formulated pills. The ingredients of these pills will aid with the actual penis enlargement. Each of the 10 different herbal ingredients and amino acids are known for their remarkable effect on the reproductive system and sex organs. Increased blood flow, harder erections, higher libido, and increased testosterone levels are just a few of the benefits that accompany an increase in size. Combined, the pills and traction device offer a very powerful enlargement solution that is unique to our organisation.
Q. Would you say that there are any risks associated with extenders?
A. It's like anything, there are no risks if the extenders are used correctly. The device is classified as a Type 1 Medical Device, and holds European Health Certification (CE). We provide an extensive manual on the correct methods of use. No injuries have been reported but I suppose anything could hurt you if you use it incorrectly. Follow the instructions and there shouldn't be any problems and if there are issues then our support people should be able to rectify things promptly.
Q. What sort of enlargement results can be expected with using an extender?
A. If used correctly, all high quality extenders will deliver you the same results. Most research suggests you will gain between 0.5 and 1 centimeter per month. However, pairing the device with the enlargement pills and exercises of the Size Genetics system enable the user to surpass the results offered by other extender systems. We guarantee this.
Q. We've seen some extenders that cost nearly $1,000, what's the difference between your product and the more expensive ones?
A. The only difference is the markup. We have examined competitors devices and the Size Genetics extender is either the same or higher quality than others available. The device is composed of a plastic ring that fits against the penis, two high-grade extendable metal rods and a silicone ring that holds the glans of the penis. We even include supplemental pieces that each of our other competitors charge extra for. The extender is also kept in a beautiful wooden box. And remember, we bundle our system with our special formulation pills, making the Size Genetics system the best value extender system on the market by a long way.
Q. Can men be confident in the Size Genetics guarantee?
A. Absolutely. The device has a 100% money-back guarantee. All we ask is that our clients try the device for a full 6 month period, if after this time they don't see the results they expected, they can return the system for a full, no-questions-asked refund.
Q. Can you tell us about what sort of support you provide for extender users?
A. We are happy to answer any questions on operational matters our customers may have. We provide our customers with round-the-clock support.
