Starting in adolescence (if not earlier), guys become aware of their own penis size in relation to the size of other males. Many a careful, sly glance occurs in locker rooms and showers to determine if a guy thinks he measures up to his peers in the penis size department, and for many this can become a very important issue all through life. Even acknowledging that penis health and skill with one’s equipment ultimately matters more than mere penis size, most men still would like to sport an obviously impressive member. Sometimes a man will actively seek out ways of possibly expanding their penis size, and the use of a penis pump is one such way in which that goal is pursued.

About the penis pump

The penis pump is a medical device that is recommended for some men who experience issues with erectile function and is intended to help men either get an erection or to maintain an erection for longer periods of time. However, many men use the penis pump for recreational uses, meaning that they do not necessarily experience erectile dysfunction but simply wish to use the pump to hopefully add to their penis size.

Essentially, the penis pump is a cylinder attached to a constricting ring on one end and powered by a pump. The penis is inserted in the end with the constricting ring. Air is then pumped out, creating a vacuum, which encourages blood to rush into the penis, creating an erection. (There also are water-based penis pumps, which work on a similar principle.)

Bigger penis size

Some men who use a penis pump recreationally for bigger size like to “over-pump,” causing the penis to balloon up to a greater size than expected – however, usually this expansion results in a wider penis rather than a longer penis. This is also a temporary effect, in some cases diminishing almost as soon as the penis is removed from the penis pump.

Many men claim that they can achieve a bigger penis long term, not by over-pumping but by using the pump as recommended on a regular (frequently daily) basis. The theory is that this is similar to exercising muscles, whereby exercising the same muscle regularly results in it becoming larger over time. However, studies have not really been conducted to confirm this theory, and so the question of whether this works in terms of a permanent increase in penis size is still debated.


When used properly, a penis pump is generally considered to be safe. However, and especially when not used properly, there can be side effects. Among these are:

– Possible bruising of the penis

– Numbness or tingling

– Pain and soreness

– Burst blood vessels

– Difficulty ejaculating or pain during ejaculation

In some cases, men who “over-pump” too frequently or for too long a time can cause damage to the penis that may in the future impede erectile function.

It’s best to get a doctor’s opinion before using a penis pump, especially if a man has blood issues such as clotting or is using a blood thinner.

Using a penis pump in search of greater penis size may cause soreness, so regular application apply a first-rate penis health oil ( health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin ) is advised. The chosen oil must contain a combination of a high-end emollient (such as shea butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E), which can help to soothe penis skin that is sore from stretching. In addition, the best oil is going to contain vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, which is a vital nutrient that is required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue.
