How to Use a Penis Pump

Not only can a penis pump deliver intense, personal pleasure, it can get you perfectly primed for bedroom action and may increase girth and length – 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.

The tissue in your penis can respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare. Penis pumping once or twice a week over 2 to 3 months may help to increase your penis size by up to 30 percent!

How to Use a Penis Pump

1. The best way to use a penis pump is to 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. A good penis pump technique is to start compressing and releasing the pump slowly, taking time to get used to the sensations and pressure.

6. Continue cock pumping until your penis is firmly erect.

7. Stop and check your penis - if there's any unusual discoloration or bulging of veins then stop. If all seems well, carry on using the penis pump.

8. Once you're at a good length or feel that you are at full pressure, stop and slowly open the air release or turn it anti-clockwise, allowing the air to disperse and your pumped-up penis to slip freely from the cylinder!

Once your penis leaves the cylinder, it will gradually go back to its normal size. To keep your extra length and girth, one of the best penis pump tips is to slip on a cock ring before pumping.

Safety first

If any discomfort or pain is felt at all during any point of the pumping, STOP! At first, it will be a strange sensation but it should not hurt.

It's recommended that you use your penis pump for no longer than 20 minutes to avoid damage to the blood vessels in your penis.
