All About Penis Pumps

What is the Penis Pump?

A Penis Pump is a plastic cylinder (hollow object that is fitted over the penis) with a manual or motorized pump to create a partial vacuum around the penis, engorging it as blood is drawn in.

There are a variety of different styles produced by different adult toy companies, but generally they all work the same.  As the vacuum increases, the pressure within the blood vessels of the penis increases as well.  The idea is to pump the blood to the penis to get it as hard & large as it can naturally reach.  A “C Ring” or a “Cockring” is used like an elastic to hold the blood pressure in the penis to keep it erect during sex once the penis is made erect by this mechanical process.

What is the Penis Pump used for?

A Penis Pump can be used as a sexual, male masturbatory adult toy for pleasure, like what  a man would use a pocket pussy for.  Using a Penis Pump as an adult toy can can create more intense pleasure during orgasm.

But most people who buy a Penis Pump, buy it to help increase the size and thickness of their penis.

How do you use a Penis Pump?

The hollow cylinder is fitted over the penis, with a manual or motorized pump to create a partial vacuum around the penis, engorging it as blood is drawn in.  As the blood supply increases to the penis it creates an erection to the penis.

Then, the man will use a “C Ring” or a “Cockring” like an elastic to hold the blood pressure in the penis keeping it hard and erect.  The “C Ring” or “Cockring” can be placed around the shaft of the penis or behind the balls of the penis.  Where you place it can depend on your own personal comfort.

Some men remove the “C Ring” or “Cockring” before they orgasm and some remove it after.  (After orgasm, it can make the penis feel more sensitive to removing the Ring)

Also, take into consideration, that there are different sizes for “C Rings” or “Cockrings,” find the one that is comfortable for you.  The last thing you need is to be turned off on the “C Ring” or “Cockring” because it can effect the results of your own pleasures.

The Penis Pump can also stretch the penile ligament.  That is the ligament that attaches the penis to the pelvic bone.   Used consistently over time (2x – 3x per week for a month) it increases the capilaries in the penis which can increase size and thickness as well as stretch the penile ligament which can increase length.

And the Biggest Question is, “Does the Penis Pump Really work?”

Some people say Penis Pumps are just psychological and that it they are just a temporary solution to symptoms of impotence, but not a cure.  Others are quite happy with their purchase of the Penis Pump and swear by their results.

The effectiveness of penis pumps for permanent penis enlargement was examined by Kazem, Hosseini and Alizadeh.  They studied 37 men with penis length less than 10 cm and found no significant change in penile length after using pumps for six months, although the follow-up have found 30% satisfaction with the method.  The conclusion of the paper stated that vacuum treatment of the penis is not an effective method for penile elongation, but provides psychological satisfaction for some men.

 My Personal Story:

Working in my Adult Store, I’ve sold many Penis Pumps.  Penis enlarging creams and male enhancements.

I once met two men in my adult store that told me that they both had their prostates removed because of cancer and that the penis pumps was the only way that they were able to have sex with their wives.

They were looking for the replacement rings for the pumps around the sleeve and told me how they already have their Penis Pumps supplied to them by their own doctors.

I really found that so interesting because of the idea that the Penis Pumps has physically helped them in their lives and that their doctor was prescribing it.

It touched me to know that it has made the difference between them being intimate with their wives or not.  And if they tell me it works for them and their doctor is supplying it, then who is to say it doesn’t work?

In the US, penis pumps may be covered by Medicare if they are deemed medically necessary.  Pumps have been used to successfully treat men with Peyronie’s disease, which causes unusual shortening and curvature of the penis.  A 31-patient study conducted by the Department of Urology at St Peter’s Hospitals and the Institute of Urology in London found, “clinically and statistically significant improvement in penile length, angle of curvature, and pain after 12 weeks of vacuum pump use”.

In this study, subjects with Peyronie’s undertook two ten-minute pumping sessions per day for twelve weeks.  The additional penis length, an average of 0.5 centimetres (0.20 in) was an unexpected side effect found in approximately one third of the subjects and not an intended aim of the study.

Pumps may work even if there is nerve or vascular damage preventing a natural erection.

Another Personal Story from my Adult Store:

I have also had an older couples in my store buying the pumps.  One couple I had over the age of 55 that I sold the Penis Pump to came back into my store together to excitedly tell me that he had gained size and thickness.   They told me they were both satisfied with the product and thanked me for it.

It is people like that who make me feel good about my job.  My mission is to help & inspire others.  I believe that the bond in the bedroom among couples is extremely important for a successful relationship & overall happiness in life.

What are the Cons for the Penis Pump?

Pumping must be done very carefully to avoid serious injury: over-enthusiastic pumping can burst blood vessels and form blisters.  Excessive or prolonged use of the Penis Pump (over long periods of time) can cause some harm to the penis and the stretched skin may loose it’s elasticity after a while.

Another Personal Story from my store:

Once I talked to a gay man in my adult store who had told me he uses the Penis Pump for  masturbation.  But he did tell me that he has seen some men who have over used it, over long periods of time and the skin on the penis can look saggy.


So to conclude on the Penis Pump, my suggestion with all products, is to do your own research, not over use any products & figure out what is best for you.
