Penis Pumps 101: A Guide to Penis Pumps

penis pumpSometimes sex toys and aids are the cause of much laughter and mockery. Sure, some are pretty ludicrous and the giggling is probably warranted. There are some downright ridiculous toys out there! But there are also some useful and helpful ones that have gotten a bad rap.

Take the penis pump. Now, some of the bad press it has gotten could be due to the silly claims manufacturers will make in order to try and sell them to men too willing to part with their money in hopes of an impossible dream. But how many movies and tv shows have featured a penis pump as a gag to indicate someone has a small dick? Too many times.

What are penis pumps?

In reality, these simple cylinder and pump combinations are actually quite helpful for many men looking to add some girth to their penis, trying to help the effects of erectile dysfunction and those who just like the sensation and want hot orgasms!

Penis pumps are a sex toy for men, combining a glass or plastic cylinder with a pump attached that creates a vacuum in the tube. A person simply puts his penis in the tube and squeezes, the vacuum sucks his penis tightly into the tube. They are available in a variety of sizes and different models to ensure you find the toy that fits and works for you best.

Do penis pumps really work?

The answer to this question depends on what you’re hoping a penis pump will do. Many offer vague and incomplete advertising, saying they will make your penis bigger. Well, this is true in one sense and not so much in another. Yes, a penis pump can make your dick bigger - if you’re talking about girth. Habitual use of a penis pump will increase the size of the blood vessels in your penis so that they will, eventually, take on more blood when you achieve an erection. However, that increase in size will not apply to the length of the penis. Penis pumps are not going to make you hung like a horse. That said, anecdotal evidence suggests that width is actually preferable to length in terms of the measurement that needs increasing.

Why and when do people use penis pumps?

Penis pumps can be used for a multiple of reasons. First and foremost, the suction of the vacuum pump can feel great and help you orgasm in new and exciting ways! You can also enjoy the sensation as foreplay and a prelude to sex. Pumping the penis up to its biggest possible girth can make you and your partner pretty damn happy. You might also use the pump this way if you are dealing with some form of erectile dysfunction. If you are able to create a good seal at the base of your penis with the pump, you can use the aid to help achieve an erection and then proceed to intercourse. This practical application for penis pumps is often overlooked, but vital for many men’s sexual health and wellbeing.

How are penis pumps used?

penis pumpWhen you start off with a penis pump, it is important to not jump in too quickly. This sexual aid is not like a sleeve or masturbator. You really need to learn how the pump works and feels. Before you even put your dick in the toy, test the pump and the release valve to make sure they work properly. Secure the pump against your thigh and give it a few squeezes. Feel the strength of the pressure and then release it with the valve. Testing this ensures you’ll be able to end things quickly, if need be.

Next, coat the end of the shaft of the penis pump with a bit of lube. This will help ensure you get a good seal to maximize the strength of the vacuum. Slide your penis into the shaft and rest it firmly, but comfortably, against your pelvis. When you get here, you’re ready to squeeze the pump!

What are the short and long-term benefits of using penis pumps?

Penis pumps can definitely help you in both the short and long-term. When you use a penis pump, you will see that the girth of your cock has increased. Check it out! Compare a pre-pump erection with a post pump version. Have your partner do it. Hopefully this effect will please you both. This will go away after you’ve had an orgasm and begin to relax. The next time you get an erection, it will be of the size you’ve always been.

However, if you get into a good routine of regularly using a penis pump, you will see that your cock will get bigger - and stay bigger. Using a penis pump regularly will cause the blood vessels in your penis to expand permanently. This will allow more blood to flow every time you get an erection. Be patient though, this does take time.
