    Not only can a penis enlargement pump deliver intense personal pleasure, it can get a man perfectly primed for bedroom action and increase length and girth - 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 will respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare. Pump once or twice a week and in 2 - 3 months you will see an increase to your flaccid penis size of up to 30 percent!

    How to Use a Penis Pump

    1. 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 air tight.

    4. Place your finger over the air release or set the pump to only allow air into the cylinder by turning it clockwise.

    5. Start compressing and releasing the pump slowly, taking time to get used to the sensations and pressure.

    6. Continue pumping until your penis is firmly erect.

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

    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, slip on a cock ring before pumping.

    A few safety points to remember:

    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 but it's perfectly fine to use the pump often, with gaps between sessions.

      I was wondering how much my penis will grow by after use and how often should i use it? Is there a risk of imputence?

      I am older now, and want to keep my usual size, not enlarge it. A girth of 11 to 13cm would do, but your pumps are bigger, 15 to >25cm. What do you think?

      In general, you need to use your pump fairly regularly as the results aren't permanent. However, after using it for a period of 3 - 6 months you will find that the results are more long lasting, meaning that you have to pump less often.

      We advise pumping once or twice a week to start with then, when you're used to it, trying using it more or less times. This gives you the chance to discover the time that is right for you specifically.

      Depending on which pump you use, on average you can see a change in your girth between 30 percent and 60 percent within the first month! Of course, this all depends on how often you pump and which pump you use.

      The cylinder size on the pumps just allows you more area of suction - it doesn't have much bearing on the actual size you will pump to. Once you get to the size you like, you can stop the suction and enjoy!

      I used the Firemans Pensi Pump for the first time and i have swelling around the rim of the penis head, more like a blister. It was not uncomfortable or anything while pumping, so i kept it on. Will this go away ? because my penis now looks deformed !!

      Hi Mehdi,

      It sounds like you may have over-pumped slightly. It's nothing to worry about but if your skin is particularly dry or sensitive, it will be more obvious.

      Apply a soothing cream like E45 or Germolene to the swollen part of your penis 2 or 3 times a day, will ensure that it goes back to normal quickly and will keep your penis moisturised and healthy so it doesn't happen next time you pump.

      Hope this information helps!
