An advertisement of a Kegel equipment for men claims that hanging more weight to the erected penis while contracting the pubococcygeus muscle will help make it stronger.

But is there any scientific paper research on this method?

The only article that the advertisement refers to is Pelvic Exercises for Men, Too, which 1) seems to promote the aforementioned company, and 2) doesn't actually cite any paper that seems to answer the efficiency of the product. WebMD and Mayo Clinic do not specially mention about adding more weight to the penis.

  • I just want to have more knowledge. What's wrong with that? – Ooker Nov 29 '16 at 5:12
  • There's nothing wrong with your question, but I don't think the video is necessary to understand it. Since the video is an ad for a product, I don't think it's appropriate. – Carey Gregory Dec 2 '16 at 23:06
  • Ah, it's just a reference. You can say that it's just a habit of citing. I have opened a meta question regarding on this: When asking about an advertised method, does refering to it necessary? – Ooker Dec 3 '16 at 14:41
