How to Use a Penis Pump

Not only can a penis pump deliver intense, personal pleasure, it can get a man perfectly primed for bedroom action and increase length and girth - given time!

A penis pump creates a vacuum over the penis to encourage blood flow and as the blood flow to the penis is increased, the erectile tissue expands, giving you a stronger erection.

“Bought this as an experiment just to see the potential difference it could make. And wow, what a feeling!” - BPMW

The tissue in your penis will respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare. Pump once or twice a week and in 2 to 3 months you will see an increase to your flaccid penis size of up to 30 percent!

Step-by-step guide

  1. Start with a full or semi-erect penis. If you're using a Bathmate water pump, you'll need to begin with while flaccid.
  2. Apply lubrication to the opening of the pump and to your penis, so it will slide in easily.
  3. Insert the shaft of your penis into the cylinder until the base of the pump is pressed firmly against your body so it is airtight.
  4. Place your finger over the air-release or set the pump to only allow air into the cylinder by turning it clockwise.
  5. Start compressing and releasing the pump slowly, taking time to get used to the sensations and pressure.
  6. Continue pumping until your penis is firmly erect.
  7. Stop and check your penis - if there's any unusual discolouration or bulging of veins then stop. If all seems well, carry on pumping.
