Imitation Penis Extenders


The Andro Gold penis extender was released over 20 years ago and is the second ever penile traction device ever to be invented. The first being a product called Jes Extender. Since then, way back in 1994, there’s been many imitations. These fakes at best, can only be described as a penis stretcher. There is a big difference between simply stretching the penis and creating the precise conditions needed to promote penis growth. To this day still, only these two penis extenders are genuinely made with correct medical specifications to promote optimal penis enlargement results. When a man is considering penis enlargement (or to help straighten a curved penis), he should make sure the product has been properly tested and is proven to work. Men who think all traction based penis extenders are made equally can find themselves in for a big lesson and most waste many months of time.

Over the years we’ve heard a lot of feedback about about low quality penis stretchers including, warranty, usage and slow performance issues. That feedback usually relates to brands like Sizegenetics, FastSize, X4 labs, Proextender etc. One very easy hallmark of an imitation penile extender is the amount of false information they advertise with, which is not backed by clinical testing or proof. Any brand that advertises it’s safe and effective to use a device at more than 1500 grams of tension should be asked for direct proof of that statement in the form of testing data or an approval certificate.



Legitimate Penile Traction Devices


There are only two legitimate penile traction devices that have clinical proof of enlarging and straightening the penis. They are also the only two genuine penis extenders able to obtain Australian TGA registration as class 1 medical devices. In Australia, if products are not backed with real medical documentation and clinical studies, they will not get approved to be legally sold to the public. Andro Gold is a scientifically designed and medically proven penis extender. Visit our penis enlargement information page to read more.

UPDATE 07/12/2019: Andro Penile Device is no longer registered with the Australian TGA and can therefore no longer be legally sold in Australia.

Jes Extender: A legitimate penile traction device. One of two penis extenders in the world that has obtained genuine Australian TGA registration. Update: Jes Extender is now the only product in the world to have TGA registration.


The manufacturers of Andro Penile Gold hold various patents for this design of Penile Extender. The Jes Extender Penis Enlarger is the only other penis extender in the world that has proven itself enough to get listed with the Australian TGA. This is no small statement, Australian standards for medical device approval are one of the highest in the world.

UPDATE 04/07/2019: Andro Penile Device is no longer registered with the Australian TGA and can therefore no longer be legally sold in Australia.



Medical Grade Penis Extenders


Medical grade penis extenders are made by medically based companies. The medical company that makes Andro penile device is geared towards natural male enhancement and originally underwent 10 years of clinical trials, scientific and medical research before releasing the Andro Penile extender. They fully back their products and have the history and documentation to prove it. Imitation penis stretchers outsource to China to cut down on costs which inevitably means cutting down on quality and potentially putting consumer’s safety at risk. Then they label their websites and product packaging with false Doctor endorsements and just about anything they please. The consumer should be aware of catchy named devices and companies out there. A catchy name or fancy website does not mean a good quality, safe or effective penis extender.

UPDATE 04/07/2019: Andro Penile Device is no longer registered with the Australian TGA and can therefore no longer be legally sold in Australia. The Andro penile device is now made in China.




Low Quality Penis Stretchers


There is a difference between a real penile traction therapy device (also known as a medical penile extender), compared to the many non approved imitation’s and fakes. A penile extender is designed to use the correct and clinically proven amount of traction to trigger new growth in the penis. A penis stretcher will simply do only that, stretch the penis, and usually with dangerous and untested amounts of tension. Putting the penis under too much tension can cause micro tearing in the penis. It has been demonstrated in various testing that 1500 grams of tension is the ceiling of safe and effective tension for penile traction therapy (PTT).  When the penis heals from too much force, these injury sites within the penile shaft can form scarring and plaque which can cause penis curvature and conditions such as Peyronie’s disease.

The best way to test a company or website is to ask for a Government approval or registration certificate (such as a Australian Therapeutics Goods (TGA) ID number). Any medical grade penis enhancement device such as a penis extender needs to be registered under the Australian TGA in order to be approved for sale to Australian residents. The main feedback from men who have purchased low quality penis stretchers, is  breakage after a few weeks. In addition, some men have experienced certain skin irritations and rashes caused by the materials not being of a genuine medical grade. Very poor customer service and warranty processing is also very characteristic of companies who sell poorly made penis stretchers. They usually give impersonal, canned and incomplete responses which can be very frustrating for a man who thought he was buying a genuine product. Unfortunately, supplying quality products and customer support, is not something high on the priority list of these unscrupulous companies. More often that not, once they have made the sale, they virtually “shut shop” on the unsuspecting customer.
