Unveiling the Reality of Penis Vacuum Pumps

man-legs-over-waterA penis vacuum pump is a device that consists of a manual or a motorized pump, a chamber and a cylinder. The cylinder is placed over the penis. The suction motion of the pump creates a vacuum that then forces blood to rush into the penis, making it hard, fast.

Principle of working of penis vacuum pumps

The principle of working of penis vacuum pumps is that; with regular use of a vacuum pump your penis will get engorged with blood more often, forcing it to expand. It supposedly works better for men who want to add girth to their tool. Aside from its use to increase penis size, vacuum pumps are sometimes used by men to treat erectile dysfunction and for masturbation.

Some of the drawbacks associated with the continued use of penis pumps include:

Temporary, short-term results: In experiences of all users with pumps, any results gained are simply temporary. Therefore, if you are looking for a big penis for 10 minutes or so, then it might be worth checking them out.

Require long-term use for effectiveness: For permanent changes (if any), marketers of penis pumps suggest at least 6 months of continued use before expecting results. This takes a lot of commitment on the part of the user to continue using the pumps regularly for six months

Risks & side effects: You should avoid pumping your penis too fast as this may bruise or cause a rupture of the blood vessels immediately below the surface of the skin. Similarly, penis vacuum pumps are very easy to misuse. There is a lot of guesswork and trial and error in getting the right timing to achieve just the right amount of pressure. If you put too much, there’s risk of injuring the tissues of your penis and possibly even rupturing it. Perhaps the worse side effect is the possibility of getting erectile dysfunction, all because you use too much pressure.

No impact of penis size: Scientific studies show no significant improvement when it comes to penis size. There have been a few that looked into the efficacy of using penis pumps. One of such studies was done on 37 men and was published appeared in the British Journal of Urology. According to the results of the trial, researchers found no significant change or increase in penile length even after 6 months of use of penis pumps.


It is clear and evident from the above discussion that penis pumps are not only considered ineffective for producing long-term erection improvement or enlargement of your penis when used alone but also come with a lot of serious and potential health risks and side effects. For these reasons pumps are best to be cautiously used as an auxiliary method for penis enlargement along with other methods such as the jelq, various stretches and/or with traction devices.
