What are the Benefits of Using a Penis Pump?

Posted by Le Luv on

A penis pump is a vacuum device that can help achieve and maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. It is a helpful tool for those with erectile dysfunction or difficulty getting or keeping an erection, but it can also be used for pleasure. It may also be called a "penis enlarger" or "vacuum pump."

The device consists of a plastic tube that fits over the penis, a pump attached to the tube, and a ring that fits around the base of the penis to maintain the erection. But have you ever wondered why these devices are so popular? Well, they actually come with a host of benefits.

Here's your definitive guide to penis pumps: from what makes them so great to how to use them.

Who Can Use a Penis Pump?

Regardless of how you identify or sexual orientation, if you have a penis - or your partner does - you can pump it! Penis pumps are most commonly used during solo play and masturbation, but they are a fun couple's sex toy to bring into your partnered playtime and are often used in dominant and submissive BDSM role play.

What are the Benefits of Using a Penis Pump

Penis pumps offer numerous benefits such as:

  • Boosted blood flow

Penis pumps work by creating a vacuum that increases blood flow to the penis, helping men achieve and maintain an erection for penetrative sex.

  • Enlargement of the penis 

Penis pumps can help increase the size of the penis.

  • Improved sexual health

In addition to helping with erectile dysfunction, penis pumps can also improve overall sexual health and satisfaction by increasing blood flow to the penis and promoting better sexual function. They can be used as a sex toy during foreplay to make sex more intimate.

  • Minimal side effects 

Unlike some medications for erectile dysfunction, penis pumps have minimal side effects and are a safe and non-invasive option for men who have trouble achieving or maintaining an erection.

  • Can be used with ED medication

Penis pumps can be used in conjunction with medication (such as Viagra) for erectile dysfunction to increase effectiveness and improve sexual performance.

  • Cost effective

Compared to surgery or medication, penis pumps are a more cost-effective option for men with ED as they can be purchased once and used for several years before needing to be replaced.

  • Reliable and effective

One of the biggest advantages of using a penis pump is that they’re reliable, especially if you’re unable to use medication to treat ED. Many men with ED caused by damage to the tissue surrounding the penis find that penis pumps are quick to work and effective. 

  • Non-invasive

Also, unlike penile implants, penis pumps also do not require any type of surgical procedure on your penis in order to function effectively. 

The Importance of Choosing the Right Penis Pump 

A wide variety of penis pumps are available in the market, making it challenging to choose the best one. It is crucial to consider factors like design, size and intended purpose in finding the right penis pump. When selecting a penis pump, ensure it has a durable and tactile design that can safely erect the penis. Finding a pump that fits your member's size is also essential.

Most pumps are designed to accommodate an average erection size of 5 to 5.5 inches, so if your penis size is outside of this range, it may be necessary to find a pump that fits your dimensions. Look for products that advertise a sufficient boost in erection quality for a temporary period, long enough for any sexual intercourse session. 

To avoid any harm, choosing the right penis pump that is comfortable and safe to use is important. Consider purchasing a penis pump made of materials that feel comfortable for your skin, and find one that is smooth and cushioned to create a comfortable erection. Additionally, ensure that the pump size is sufficient for your member to avoid temporary side effects like discoloration, bruising, swelling, or damage in the penile tissues. 

Types of Penis Pumps

There are different types of penis pumps, here are the two main categories:

Manual pumps

These pumps are the most traditional type of penis pump. After inserting the penis inside the pump, the patient can squeeze a balloon to add air pressure inside the transparent tube. 

Once the penis has sufficient blood flow, the pressure is released through a quick-release valve or, if absent, by slowly removing it.


Electric pumps

Electric pumps produce consistent and secure vacuums that can provide an erection without requiring hands. While some may prefer the physical sensation of pumping their penis, the amount of force and attention needed to construct an erection safely may be exhausting or stressful for some, which is why there are automatic devices, also known as vacuum erection devices, that produce a consistent and secure vacuum that can provide an erection with no hands required—only periods of recharging its battery.

How to Use a Penis Pump Properly

It is essential to use a penis pump safely. Pay attention to how your penis feels, and stop using it if something hurts or feels off. Sex educators also recommend using a product with a pressure gauge to ensure safe use.

Always follow the instructions provided with your penis pump for proper use. Reading and following them is essential to avoid injury and ensure the best possible experience.

To effectively use a penis pump, follow these steps:

Step 1: Apply lubrication

Before use, apply lube to the base of your penis to create a seal between the device and your skin. For optimal results, consider shaving your pubic hair in the area to ensure a secure seal.

Step 2: Apply the device

Each penis pump may have specific instructions, so follow the package directions when applying the suction device to your penis.

Step 3: Initiate pumping

There are three main types of pumping mechanisms to choose from:

  • Battery-powered pumps require no manual effort
  • Hand-triggered pumps provide a small assist with a comfortable handheld device
  • Hand-powered pumps involve squeezing a pump to create the vacuum effect

Take your time and pump slowly to ensure a comfortable experience. Depending on the device, the pumping process usually takes between 30 seconds to three minutes. If you feel any discomfort or pain, release the pressure immediately.

Step 4: Remove the device

Most penis pumps feature a release valve that makes removal easier. Follow the instructions on the box to remove the device safely and correctly.

Step 5: Utilize a cock ring

To prolong the effects of the pump, place a cock ring around the base of your penis after removing the device. This can help maintain the erection for a more extended period.

Other Accessories You Can Use With a Penis Pump

Penis pumps can also be combined with other sex toys and accessories to enhance the experience, such as masturbation sleeves, fleshlights, vibrating eggs, anal beads, cock rings, prostate massagers, hygienic tools, and lubricants.
