How to Use a Penis Pump

Reading time -

If you've ever had ED, temporary or not, you know how frustrating it can be. You want to be able to perform, but your body just isn't cooperating. Fortunately, there are treatments available. One such treatment is using a penis pump.

These simple devices can be highly effective in treating symptoms of ED, but only if they're used properly, and only temporarily. These pumps work by creating a vacuum around the penis, which then draws blood into the penis, resulting in an erection.

But if you don't know how to use a penis pump properly, you could damage your penis, or cause other serious problems. That's why it's important to do your research, and consult with your doctor if necessary, before using one of these devices.

Let's take a look at everything to do with a penis pump, including what they are, how to use them, and other safety and effectiveness considerations.

What is a Penis Pump?

A penis pump is a device that is used to help men achieve and maintain an erection. The device consists of a cylindrical tube that is placed over the penis and then a vacuum is created within the tube. This vacuum helps to draw blood into the penis, which then helps to achieve and maintain an erection.

Much like the name suggests, a penis pump is a device that helps men attain an erection by using a vacuum-like mechanism to draw blood into the penis. A simple penis pump typically consists of a cylindrical tube and a hand or battery-operated pump. The man using the pump places the tube over his flaccid penis, then uses the pump to create a vacuum within the cylinder. This vacuum pulls blood into the penis, causing it to become erect due to the increased blood flow.

When used correctly, penis pumps can be an effective tool for men who have erectile dysfunction or who simply want to enhance their sexual performance. However, it's important to note that overusing a penis pump can damage the tissues in the penis, so it's important to use them as directed.

How to Use a Penis Pump: A Step by Step Guide for Beginners

Penis pumps are becoming increasingly popular. They’re commonly used by men who want to enhance their sex lives and improve their erections. Penis pumps are also used by some men who have erectile dysfunction (ED).

If you’re thinking about using a penis pump, this guide will teach you how to use one safely and effectively.

1. Choose the right penis pump

Most penis pumps are made of soft, pliable materials. They have a cylindrical chamber that fits over your penis. The chamber is connected to a hand or battery-operated pump. When you use the pump, it creates a vacuum around your penis. This causes blood to flow into your penis, resulting in an erection.

Before you use a penis pump, it’s important to choose the right one. There are many different types and brands of penis pumps available, but not all of them are safe or effective. Some penis pumps are made with inferior materials that can break easily. This can cause serious injuries due to the sharp edges of the broken plastic. Other penis pumps don’t create a strong enough vacuum. This can cause your penis to slip out of the chamber, which can lead to bruising or penile fractures, or simply just be an ineffective way to achieve an erection.

When choosing a penis pump, look for one that’s made of medical-grade materials. The chamber should be made of a soft, pliable material such as silicone. The pump should be easy to operate, and it should create a strong, consistent vacuum.

Pay attention to reviews and ratings when choosing a penis pump. If a particular pump has a lot of negative reviews, it’s probably not a good choice.

2. Read the instructions carefully

Before you use a penis pump, it’s important to read the instructions carefully. Each pump is different, and it’s important to understand how yours works. If you have any questions about how to use the pump, don’t hesitate to ask your doctor or the person who sold you the pump. It's also a good idea to practice using the pump before you have sex. This will help you get comfortable with the device and prevent any accidents.

3. Apply lube and insert

Before you start, it’s important to apply lube to your penis. This will help reduce friction and make the process more comfortable. Apply a generous amount of lube to your penis and the inside of the chamber.

When you’re ready, carefully insert your penis into the chamber. Make sure that your penis is pointing downwards so that the lube doesn’t leak out. Do not wear a cock ring with the pump, or anything that may constrict blood flow or become stuck within the chamber.

4. Pump the device

Once your penis is inserted, it’s time to start pumping. Slowly pump the device until you create a vacuum around your penis. The vacuum should be strong, but not too strong. If it’s too strong, it can be painful. If it’s not strong enough, it won’t be effective.

Most penis pumps have a pressure gauge that lets you know how much vacuum pressure you’re creating. If your pump doesn’t have a pressure gauge, pay attention to how it feels. It should feel tight, but not painful.

5. Wait for an erection

As you pump, you should start to feel blood flowing into your penis. This will cause your penis to become erect. Once you have an erection, stop pumping. The chamber should fit snugly around your penis. If it’s too loose, your penis will slip out.

6. (Optional) Use a cock-ring

If you’re using the pump to treat ED, you may want to use a cock ring. A cock ring is a small, flexible ring that you wear at the base of your penis. The ring helps to maintain the vacuum around your penis and prevents blood from flowing back out.

To use a cock ring, wait until you have an erection. Then, carefully slide the ring onto your penis. The ring should fit snugly, but not too tight. If it’s too tight, it can be painful. If it’s too loose, it won’t be effective.

Are There Risks to Using Penis Pumps?

There are a few risks associated with penis pumps, but they are generally safe when used as directed. The most common risks are:

  • Bruising or swelling of the penis
  • Numbness or pain in the penis
  • Temporary loss of sensation in the penis

In rare cases, the use of a penis pump can cause the formation of blisters or ulcers on the penis. If you experience any of these side effects, discontinue use of the penis pump and consult your doctor.

Men who have a history of Peyronie's disease, a condition marked by the formation of scar tissue inside the penis, should avoid using penis pumps. There is a risk that the scar tissue could be pulled and damaged by the pump.

Penis pumps should not be used by men who have bleeding disorders or take blood thinners, as there is a risk of bruising or injury to the penis.

Additionally, men with diabetes or other conditions that affect blood flow to the penis should consult their doctor before using a penis pump due to the risk of further complications.

Other Erectile Dysfunction Solutions

If a penis pump isn't the right fit for you, there are other solutions, such as:

Medication: Viagra and Cialis are oral medications that can be effective in treating erectile dysfunction, and both of these prescription only medications are easier to get than ever.

Lifestyle changes: Making some simple lifestyle changes can also improve erectile dysfunction. Things like quitting smoking, eating a healthier diet, getting more exercise, and reducing stress can all help.

Penile implants: In some cases, a penile implant may be the best solution. This is a surgical procedure that involves placing a device inside the penis that can help you get and maintain an erection.

Bottom Line

Erectile dysfunction is a common problem that affects men of all ages, but it's especially common in older men. If you're dealing with erectile dysfunction, there are a number of things you can do to try to improve the problem.
