  1. What Do Penis Pumps Do?

    Penis pumps usually have an airtight cylinder that you place over the shaft of your penis which creates a vacuum/suction that may enlarge your erection.

    The hand pump gives you total control over the frequency of pumps and the pressure applied to your penis.

    As you pump, suction in the tube increases, which increases blood flow to the shaft and head of your penis.

    The erectile tissue expands to accommodate the influx of blood, which may mean a bigger erection.

    After using a pump, you may see and feel an increase in girth, more so than length.

    Penis pumps are safe to use as long as you follow the instructions. Limit yourself to short sessions at first and make sure you are not applying too much pressure to your penis.

    Why Do People Use Penis Pumps?

    Men use penis pumps for tons of reasons, not just for making their penises bigger. Because of the vacuum, penis pumps provide blow job-like sensations for men similar to the 'sucking' feeling of oral sex.

    By applying water-based lube like Lovehoney Enjoy to the base of your penis, you can create a tight seal and use the pump action to stimulate your penis.

    People who suffer from erectile dysfunction could use a penis pump to maintain and strengthen their erection.

    Penis pumps can also be used as a form of foreplay. More blood being pumped into your penis will mean the area is more sensitive to every touch and lick.

    If you want a more substantial erection that lasts longer than just one pumping session, you have to work at it over time. The tissue in your penis may respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare.
