Recently, I’ve noticed that many penis pump manufacturers boast that their pump can increase your penis size by a significant amount within mere weeks after using their pump.
So, I began to wonder, can penis pumps actually increase the size of your package? Or is this just another advertisement scheme to entice men into buying their product, only to be disappointed when their Johnsons remain the same size they’ve always been?
To find out the answer, I decided to investigate whether or not you can get permanent gains from pumping.
In this article, I’ll address the notion that penis pumps can increase the size of your manhood by reviewing what science has to say on the matter. Then, I’ll go through the risks of using penis pumps and some safety precautions you can take to avoid harming your Johnson.
Can You Get Permanent Gains From Pumping?
So, can penis pumps make your junk bigger?
Unfortunately, science says no. As of now, there’s no empirical evidence to suggest that penis pumps result in permanent gains. While penis pumps may offer temporary size benefits, the effects wear off relatively quickly once the session is over.
Penis Pumps Can Help With Penile Erections
Although penis pumps won’t make your penis bigger, they do have some tremendous short-term benefits.
For starters, penis pumps can help you achieve rock-hard erections. Penis pumps use suction to draw blood into your penis, making you harder than you otherwise would be without the device.
While having a really hard erection may be beneficial for any man, it’s especially advantageous if you have erectile dysfunction (ED) since the pump may help you maintain an erection long enough so you can have sexual intercourse.
Additionally, penis pumps may be beneficial if you have Peyronie’s disease, which is a condition where scar tissue builds upon the shaft of the penis, leading to curved erections, which are very painful.
According to a study conducted by The Institute of Urology in London, penis pumps can help straighten out the shaft, thereby making sex less painful. Additionally, they may reduce the need for invasive surgical procedures. So, if you have Peyronie’s, talk to your doc about using a penis pump today!
Are Penis Pumps Safe?
While penis pumps are generally safe, there are some risks associated with improper use. Some of the most common side effects include:
- Petechiae in the penis. This is when you bleed underneath the skin. It produces tiny red dots all over your penis that may look like a rash.
- Pain and/or bruising of the penis. This may occur from you misusing the pump or using it on too high of a suction setting.
- Numbness and/or your penis turns a bluish color. This occurs when there isn’t enough oxygen going to your penis.
- Uncomfortable sensations during ejaculation. Using a penis pump can give you the feeling that your semen is trapped inside you when you cum, which is very unsettling. Sometimes, it can also make ejaculating painful.
Precautions for Using a Penis Pump
There are certain precautions you should take to make your pumping experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. I’ll discuss them in detail below.
Shave Your Pubic Hair
Before you use your penis pump, you’ll want to do some manscaping down below.
Make sure you remove all of the hair surrounding the base of your penis. If you don’t, those hairs may get trapped in the ring of the penis pump, resulting in an excruciating first encounter.
Additionally, shaving will make the skin around your penis smooth, allowing the penis pump to achieve a tighter seal!
Follow the Directions
While penis pumps seem pretty simple to use, that doesn’t mean you should go rogue and start using one without glancing at the manual.
Before you begin pumping, you should always read the instructions that come with your penis pump. The manufacturer may have specific tips and tricks for using the penis pump before and after to help keep you safe.
Additionally, you’ll learn about your particular model’s safety features, including how you can release the pressure if the sensation becomes too intense.
Following the directions will help ensure that you have a safe and pleasant pumping experience instead of a terrible one that results in the most awkward doctor visit of your life!
Never Use the Pump for More Than 30 Minutes
While you may want your rock-hard cock to last forever, I’m afraid doing so would just be downright dangerous.
Most penis pumps include a constriction ring that you wear at the base of your penis while you are pumping. If you leave this ring on for more than 30 minutes, it can cut off blood flow to your penis, which can cause severe damage to your penile tissues.
If you feel any pain or numbness in your penis, even if it’s before the 30-minute marker, stop what you are doing. It’s better to be safe than sorry!
Always Use Lube
Before you begin pumping, make sure you apply lube around the base of your penis since this will help the pump create a tighter seal. Additionally, lube will make it much easier to get the constriction ring off when your session is over.
Never Use Homemade Penis Pumps
You may be tempted to get a homemade penis pump so that you don’t have to buy one. However, this is a very bad idea.
Homemade penis pumps are not certified, meaning they don’t have to maintain the same standards that other penis pumps do.
Therefore, they may not have important safety features to help keep you safe, such as quick release valves to let out the pressure if it becomes too intense.
So, just bite the bullet and buy a certified penis pump. They are much safer!
Unfortunately, there’s no evidence to suggest that penis pumps increase the size of your manhood. However, you can receive penis pump gains in other ways.
Penis pumping results in rock-hard erections, which is very useful if you have ED. Additionally, penis pumps may help straighten out your shaft if you have Peyronie’s disease, resulting in less painful erections.
While penis pumps are generally safe, there may be potential side effects, such as pain, bruising, and numbness. To help prevent these, make sure you follow your penis pump instructions and never use a homemade pump.
