Another way that a man can make his penis bigger is by massaging it upwards, when he is having an erection. Do this very gently and a couple of times per day. It can be done for three to four months straight and then he will notice the visible difference in his dick. http://www.blog.sparxxrx.com/can-man-use-hand-make-dick-bigger/
