Beginners guide to Penis pumps- Improve your sex life and what to expect

Do penis pumps actually work?

The short answer is yes. Unfortunately, they are not meant to extend or make your penis larger. Penis pumps do work for most people as intended by the manufacturer. Though, there are some misconceptions about its intended uses and benefits that they offer. Penis pumps are just one non-drug related solution for  Erectile Dysfunction.Or for people who have trouble getting or sustaining an erection. Penis pump devices can be easy to use, cheaper, and less invasive than other options when used safely and with the proper instruction.

 

So what is it? How is it used?  

A penis pump or vacuum erection pump may seem awkward at first but are actually fairly easy to use. Penis pumps use suction by displacing air in the pump’s chamber to draw blood into the penis, creating an erection. The device consists if :

 

  • A tube or chamber that fits over the penis

  • A seal that sits at the bottom of the shaft of the penis

  • Either a battery or hand-powered function to inflate the penis by drawing air out of the tube

Some penis pumps may have more features or added benefits. For example, the Bathmate penis pump is used in the shower or with water to displace the air in the chamber to create the suction and seal.

 

To use the penis pump, start by :

  • Shaving the pubic area to get a better seal and help from hair getting caught

  • Massaging the area to stretch and warm up the skin

  • Apply lubricant (optional) to help with possible irritation 

  • Place the penis inside the tube

  • Use the motor, hand pump, or water displacement system to displace air in the tube, creating suction and engorging the penis with blood

  • Do not leave the pressure on the penis for longer than 30 minutes. Cutting off blood flow to the penis for too long may cause injury to the penis.

 Should I use a penis ring with the pump? 

 

A penis ring is an essential part of the penis pump process. Most penis pumps come with a ring. A penis ring or constriction ring is a circular elastic toy that goes around the base of the penis. The ring puts pressure on the base of the penis and the surrounding areas to help keep blood in the penis and maintain the erection. In addition to helping maintain an erection, a penis ring can also help with stimulation for both partners, as some penis rings have vibrating accessories. It can also help with increased sensation on the penis, helping either masturbation or sex be a more pleasurable experience, and it can also help with increased stamina during sex, oral or anal intercourse.

When choosing a penis pump, make sure it has a vacuum limiter, this will help make sure that the pressure in the tube does not become too strong and cause damage. Also be sure that the tube base fits tight, but not too tight at the base of your penis and that the tube itself has room for your penis to expand and become erect. 

 

How long will the effects last? 

 

Typically an erection from a penis pump lasts about 30 minutes but outside factors can contribute to this. The arousal before or during the session can help extend this time and influence how long the effects last.

 

Will using a penis pump make my penis bigger permanently? 

 

While there are some claims and marketing that may suggest that a penis pump can grow or increase the size of the penis over time there is no actual science or evidence that indicates that this is real. The only way to extend or enlarge a penis permanently is through surgery.
