Penis pumps always hold a prominent place in sex stores. The Sexperts at Funtasia will likely point you towards our penis pump collection to help you with erection issues. But what is a penis pump? What does a penis pump do? Do penis pumps work? Today, we'll give you a step-by-step guide to becoming a penis pump expert. 

What is a penis pump?

A penis pump is a device used for one of two purposes. The most common purpose it is correctly used for is aiding with getting an erection. The other thing penis pumps are used for is to make the penis larger. 

A penis pump is composed of 4 essential pieces.

  1. A cylindrical tube where the penis is inserted 
  2. A rubber or silicone ring around the base of the cylinder 
  3. A tube connecting the cylinder and the hand pumping device
  4. The hand pumping device, ideally with some kind of gauge. 

While there are many types of penis pumps, most of them feature these four key components. 

Why do People Like Penis Pumps?

Penis pumps are commonly used as an at-home treatment for erectile dysfunction and other erection issues. They're also a sex toy for many couples who love pleasure deprivation and forced orgasm. But there are many reasons why men turn to penis pumps to help with their erections:

  • Penis pumps are effective - With practice and correct use, most men experience erections reliably from penis pumps.
  • Penis pumps are low risk - Putting any device around your penis likely raises suspicions with many men. Still, there are very few downsides to using a penis pump. 
  • They're cost-effective- There's essentially no additional cost after the initial purchase. Unlike popping pills for erections or seeking medical treatment, penis pumps work until they break. 
  • Penis pumps can be used with other erection treatments - In combination with erection drugs or other medicines for ED, penis pumps are a safe way to ensure you'll be able to rise to any occasion.
  • Penis pumps have benefits - Unlike medications or other erection treatment options, penis pumps actually help build penis strength. They are helpful for men recovering from surgeries or other procedures. 

There are lots of reasons why penis pumps are popular. Decide for yourself if they're the right fit for you. 

How Do You Use a Penis Pump for Erections?

Penis pumps are pretty simple and use the same principle as pussy and nipple pumps.

Using a penis pump correctly for erections is a relatively simple process.

You'll need the penis pump, a cock ring, and some water-based lube to get started. 

To use a penis pump, follow these simple steps:

  1. Trim your pubic hair around where the penis cylinder will sit. When you create a vacuum and have full-length pubic hair, you'll have a rather uncomfortable experience.
  2. Take a cock ring and slide it on the base of the penis cylinder (you'll need this later.)
  3. Put a small amount of water-based lubricant around the rubber or silicone opening of the cylinder.
  4. Insert your penis into the tube and affix the tube firmly against your pubic area.
  5. Using the hand pump, do one brief, slow pump to get the tube to stick to your body, creating an initial vacuum.
  6. Slowly squeeze the hand pump several times and watch your erection grow!
  7. Once you've achieved a full erection, slowly and carefully slide the cock ring onto the base of your penis.
  8. Disconnect the air tube from the penis cylinder and remove the device.
  9. Enjoy your full erection!

Penis pumps provide a temporary opportunity to experience a full-strength erection with minimal effort. But many people wonder if penis pumps really work for increasing the size of your penis. 

Do Penis Pumps Make Your Penis Bigger?

In short, nothing other than medical surgery can permanently change the size of your penis.

Penis pumps can give you an option for making your erections stronger. They increase blood flow to your penis and can make your penis feel larger over time. 

You see, your penis, like the rest of your body, can only improve with some regular exercise. While Kegels are beneficial, penis pumps can help you experience more frequent and more powerful erections when used daily.

Using a penis pump for a few minutes daily, 3-5 days a week, you may experience temporary larger genitals!

How do you use a penis pump to make your dick bigger? Simple!

The steps are very similar to the above:

  1. Trim your pubic hair around where the penis tube will go.
  2. Put a small amount of water-based lube around the silicone or rubber opening of the penis tube.
  3. Insert your penis into the penis tube.
  4. Using the hand pump, slowly pump once to ensure the tube is fully affixed to your body, forming a vacuum.
  5. Slowly pump the hand pump until you have a full erection.
  6. Leaving the tube in place, wait until your erection has gone down and you're back to a nearly flaccid state.
  7. Slowly pump until you have an erection again.

Repeat these steps 3-5 times each day. Doing this will help you increase erectile strength over time, giving you more reliable erections. Over time, you may notice a slight change in the size of your penis!

Remember, this is not a permanent fix. You'll still have to keep using the penis pump to maintain any perceived size changes. 

What is the Best Type of Penis Pump?

Choosing the best penis pump will depend on your budget and what you're using the penis pump for.

Lower-budget penis pumps rely on air to create a vacuum around your penis. The issue is that an air vacuum is challenging to regulate and can be inconsistent. An inconsistent vacuum can lead to popped blood vessels and other uncomfortable outcomes.

Therefore, we recommend the Bathmate line. The Bathmate requires the use of water so that you can create a more consistent vacuum around the penis. 

Using penis pumps like the Bathmate regularly can result in more reliable larger, and firmer erections. So, if you're looking to fully invest in a penis pump, the Bathmate is the best buy.
