Terrifyingly, you shouldn’t pour apple cider vinegar on yours
The pressure of having a big penis can make men do really bizarre things.
They could have blood injected into their penis, eat a lot of watermelon, or invest sweat and tears in the jelqing technique, which is essentially about pulling on the penis to stretch it longer.
Or, if they heeded the words of the seedy advertisements on porn sites, they could smother their genitals with apple cider vinegar, all in an attempt to make their cock bigger and harder.
Terrifyingly, this method won’t work – and one expert has warned that trying to do it could do you quite a bit of harm, too.
The “apple cider vinegar increases penis size” lie has been around for years, but it was only recently brought to our attention by Vice.
Her article breaks down a series of ads showing cartoon men pouring apple cider vinegar on their penis (or somehow shoving their entire shlong into the bottle) because the ads claim, “This strange trick makes every penis grow 65% “. .
Oddly enough, when you click on these ads they don’t actually advertise apple cider vinegar, but an entirely different pill that, in turn, promises to make the genitals bigger and harder.
But what if you decide to play the system, save money on pills, and just try the trick that the internet says could enlarge your penis by 65%? Will your penis actually grow?
The answer is no, I’m sorry. And applying apple cider vinegar to your cock could really harm your buddy.

“I would advise against applying apple cider vinegar to all areas of the genitals as it could cause irritation, pain, burning, and even potential skin infections,” Parvinder Sagoo, senior medical advisor and clinician at Simply Meds Online, told Metro.co. United Kingdom.
“There is no evidence that apple cider vinegar can enlarge your penis or help with erectile dysfunction complications.
“Lots of people like the idea that home remedies work for them, and apple cider vinegar has been used for other things, such as weight loss, but there’s no scientific evidence to back up this wild claim of penis enlargement.”
If you think, ‘oh, I’ll just drink it instead,’ it won’t do much good either.
Parvinder adds, “Many people drink apple cider vinegar diluted with water for health and weight loss reasons, but it has no benefit or impact on penis size or sexual function.”
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, drinking apple cider vinegar doesn’t kill Covid-19 either. Please do not give down large quantities for any nonsense reasons.
It’s easy to dismiss these types of penis enlargement hacks as “silly” or “ridiculous”, but the truth is that if you are unsure about any part of your body, you are much more prone to be attracted to shady internet claims are .
These ads act on those insecurities and appeal to your self-doubts to get clicks and sell products.
If you are worried about the size of your penis or your sexual performance, don’t let shame drag you into these darker corners of the internet.
It pays to speak to your GP about erectile dysfunction resolution and consider therapy to unlearn harsh self-criticism.
“There is such a thing as sexual health therapy that can help men accept their bodies and it can help spiritually,” says Parvinder.
“There are no permanent ways to increase the size of your penis. Penis extenders and penis pumps can work temporarily, but these effects wear off.”
“For men who are concerned about their penis size, I would suggest that the best remedy is to accept your genitals for who they are and learn to love what you have been given.”
