    So, yesterday I took the plunge and bought the original bathmate pump.

    Firstly I'd like to say, delivery time A*, discreet packaging A* and packaging A*

    Ok let's get to it. I've watched quite a few video tutorials on this product but still felt I should read the instructions unlike most men. The instructions were just as simple to read and understand as it was watching the tutorial on the Lovehoney site. So I hopped into a nice hot bath for 10 mins to let my body relax and soften up before I dove into using the pump.

    The original pump seems to be just the right size for me (flaccid 4.5). So, I followed the instructions and began my Bathmate experience. The pump comes with a padded rim to add for comfort although what I've found is that it can be uncomfortable a little if your bath tub is narrow and you can't open your legs a little wide. Problems was solved by switching positions and sitting in the bath with my back towards the wall.

    the other issue I thought I would have and have read which could potentially cause some issues was getting your testicles sucked into the vacume chamber. This wasn't an issue as the pump is the perfect size for me which means my testicles will not be pulled into the pump. I did keep hold of the fellas and give me a little pull down just to make sure nothing went In or any spermatic tubes were caught up in the vacume.

    So off I went and began my first 5 mins. Like I've heard before from a video online, this is a marathon and not a sprint so I didn't go full max with the pumping. Few pumps till I could feel the effects was enough for me. I repeated the process again a further 2 times after each 5 minuet session and some light massaging inbetween.

    So far I have nothing negative to say about this product and I can't wait to get into another bath tomorrow and start it all over again.

    If if anyone is thinking of buying or wants to ask me any questions I'll gladly answer them for you asap.

    Just a little update.

    It's been 5 days since getting and using the bathmate. Over the days I've becoming more comfortable with adding a little bit more pressure to the pump. At first I didn't want to dive straight in and cause damage.

    So, the only problem is that with more pressure you get the issue of your testicle(s) getting sucked up into the chamber. Now I've found that your body positioning can help a lot so finding s good position can be vital in the aid of not having your ball sucked up the tube.

    Other than that I'm finding the pump fun and easy to use. I'm alternating between using the pump flaccid, semi errect and full errect. Just to see what works best for me.

    This is all covered in most reviews of all products. It's why people spend so long writing the reviews. Not sure a thread is needed to repeat what is written in the reviews.

    All the reviews are about everyone's experience. Put it in a review that's what it's for. People don't use the forum for writing reviews!

    Thought I was offering advicE for the op to put in a review. Maybe he doesn't know about the review process.

    Sorry Gage86, I didn't think about how unwelcoming that would have felt, I would have been devastated to have been made to feel unwelcome.

    I don't have any interest in a Hercules bathmate toy but I bet the ones that do, would love a review that has such a depth of knowledge!

    In the meantime, please don't give up on the forum, it's a lovely place. Truly.

    Yeah it has made me feel unwelcome and I'll no longer be bothering with my review now. Gonna keep my thoughts to myself and leave this forum alone.

    I've not issue with the website, that's fantastic and I'll continue to use it but forum I'll give it a miss.

    So if you can just remove this thread I'd be happy thank you.

    Gage86 this actually hurts my heart that you have been made to feel unwelcome. I hope you will consider joining in other threads! Overall it is really a lovely group. The level of feedback and details you have provided on this specific product would be a GREAT review and helpful to other people considering this product. There are many toy specific threads that people find helpful to ask questions of "live" users.
