How to get a larger and harder erection with a penis pump

Penis pumps are one of the most popular methods to enhance the length and girth of a penis and to enjoy longer-lasting sex. So whether it’s yours or your partner’s penis – pump it!

Some people use these penis enlargement devices to achieve a fuller erection simply for extra fun and pleasure, while others use the pumps to help with erectile dysfunction. Either way, they’re worth a try.

Penis pumps are a quick way to boost confidence, sensitivity and add a bit of extra greatness.

What is a penis pump?

Penis pumps, also known as vacuum pumps or vacuum erection pumps, are devices that help your penis get larger and harder, and stay hard for longer, during sex. They work by increasing blood flow to the penis, causing engorgement, creating a hard-on (or a swollen-on).

Penile pumps are often used as sex toys for pleasure, however, they were originally designed as aids for people that have trouble getting or keeping an erection, or those with erectile dysfunction (ED).

Typically, a penis pump consists of the following parts:

  • A plastic tube that goes over your penis
  • A suction device attached to the tube, which can range from a simple hand pump to a battery-powered vacuum pack that removes air from the tube
  • A snugly fitting ring (basically a cock ring) that goes around the base of your penis to maintain the erection

Better sex with a penis pump

Most people use penis pumps simply for fun, non-medical reasons. They are used as sex toys to make the user’s penis larger and firmer and to enhance sexual experience for themselves and their partners. For some, watching the penis grow in the pump is a big turn-on. Others use penis pumps as part of BDSM or medical fetish play.

The effects of a penile pump last for about 15 to 20 minutes, but can be prolonged if you use a cock ring to better maintain the erection.

Besides adding a few inches, the pumps can also offer thrilling sensation and hence are often used for masturbation as well. Some penile pumps sport vibrating features to make solo play even more exciting.

Penis pumps as sex aids

Penis pumps can be an easy and effective way to help someone with ED improve the quality of their erection and keep the penis hard throughout your sex session.

Many people with ED find penis pumps a compelling solution as the devices don’t require prescriptions or assistance from a doctor. Penis pumps are easy to use, non-invasive, less costly than other ED treatment options and can be a good alternative to medication or injections.

Penis pumps are also a good option for men that cannot use other forms of ED treatments, such as Viagra or Cialis, that are not suitable for people with high blood pressure or other existing conditions.

How does a penis pump work?

By creating a vacuum around your penis, the pump gives you a longer, girthier, firmer erection, and may even increase sexual stamina so you can last for longer. The pumps use natural suction to induce blood flow and stimulate your penis, engorging the blood vessels and leading to an erection.

If used regularly and over a period of time, penis pumps can add extra length and girth to your manhood.

Different types of penis pump

Manual penis pumps

With these pumps, you can control the pressure in the cylinder manually. There are generally two types of pumping mechanisms: hand-powered bulb pumps to squeeze by hand, or hand-triggered pumps featuring a comfortable handheld device.

Electric penis pumps (automatic penis pumps)

Electric pumps are battery-powered, operating at the touch of a button, so there is no need for manual pumping. These pumps tend to be a bit more expensive than manual ones.

Water penis pump (hydro penis pumps)

Water penis pumps use water rather than air pressure, hence you need to add water to the cylinder and pump. These are the most sophisticated and priciest pumps, and the manufacturers claim that the stronger pressure leads to superior results.

How to use a penis pump

Using a penile pump for the first time may feel a little awkward, however penis pumps are easy and straightforward to operate:

  • Place the tube over your penis and make sure it sits airtight against your body. For more comfort and to avoid irritation from the tube, you may want to apply some lube, which also creates a seal between your skin and the pump
  • Use the pump to start removing the air from the tube and it will not take long to achieve an erection
  • Once happy with the firmness of your erection, release the vacuum and remove the tube
  • Slip on a cock ring to help maintain your erection
  • …engage in the desired sexual activity and have fun!

If you use a hydro penis pump, the process is slightly different. First, use the pump somewhere it won’t matter if you spill water. Secondly, fill the chamber with water before placing the tube over your penis. The other steps remain the same.

Are penis pumps safe?

Penis pumps are normally very safe and have none of the potential side effects and risks of ED medication or invasive surgical treatments for penis enlargement.

Nevertheless, we recommend to strictly follow manufacturer’s instructions on how to use your device. In the unlikely event that anything hurts, stop pumping and release the pressure (the pumps feature a quick release button).

Please also remember that you shouldn’t wear a cock ring for longer than 30 minutes.

Alternative penis enlargement devices

If you are looking for other ways to enhance your erection, you could try a cock ring, which gives firmer and longer-lasting erections by restricting blood flow from the penis. For guaranteed and immediate results, opt for a penis sleeve or a hollow strap-on, both of which can add excitement and sexual pleasure, as well as help you and your partner deal with erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation.
