To some people, a penis pump is the tool that allows them to have an erection and enjoy sex again after a diagnosis of erectile dysfunction. For others, penis pumps are fun sex toys that enhance their pleasure and sensitivity. Others may use their penis pump to enlarge their penis size prior to sex. No matter why you use a penis pump, make sure you’re using it correctly. No one wants an injured penis.

Using the penis pump

If you are using a penis pump for the first time, you may not know how they work. Always read the manufacturer’s instructions first as they may have specific instructions to use their product. Generally however all mechanical penis pumps operate in the same manner, squeezing the handle or bulb creates one way suction and thereby creases a vacuum around the penis, there should also be a quick release valve, once pressed the vacuum around the penis is released.

Prepare the area

Before you use your penis pump, you may want to shave or trim your pubic hair. This isn’t required to make your pump work properly, but some men find that the lack of hair can create a better seal around their penis which caused stronger vacuum around the penis giving quicker and better results.

Grab your lube, and lube up you dick

While also not required, personal lubricant is recommended when you use your penis pump.

It reduces rubbing and friction that could easily turn painful. A lubed up penis can enlarge and slide in the penis pump effortlessly, lube also increases sensation. Most lubes are safe for most penis pumps, but always check the materials and instruction manual first. We recommend water-based lubricant as this type is safe for any sex toy material.

Begin pumping your penis

The first step is to place the pump tube over your penis shaft. Depending on the type of pump you have, you’ll either turn it on or begin squeezing the handle or bulb for the device to create a vacuum; this is what pulls blood into your penis.

  • Dry penis pumps - Pump enough to cause an erection, but do not use for more than 10 minutes.

  • Hydro penis pumps - Pump several times, wait a moment, pump again. Repeat three to five times, until you’re satisfied with your erection. Do not use for more than 15 minutes.

Put on a cock ring

Once you are fully erect and hard, you can put on a cock ring to maintain your erection even longer. This isn’t a required step, but some men enjoy this particular step. Look for a simple and stretchy cock ring that will fit at the base of your now-rock hard shaft. Again, add a bit of lube to keep it comfortable. If you wear a cock ring, don’t keep it on for longer than 30 minutes.

How to use a penis pump for sex and masturbation

A penis pump can be used medicinally or as another sex toy to enhance your pleasure…or both!

Improve Erectile Dysfunction Symptoms

If getting harder or staying that way is a problem for you, a penis pump will “force” an erection by pulling blood into your shaft. With the addition of the cock ring, you should then stay hard long enough for masturbation or sex with your partner.

Use a penis pump as part of sexy foreplay

Want to get hard in a new way and test your own limits? Make your penis pump a part of your foreplay routine. Let your partner control the pump — while communicating clearly if they need to stop or slow down. Watch you get bigger and bigger, and then take off the penis pump and let naughty things continue.

Make yourself (temporarily) larger

Size isn’t supposed to matter, and to a lot of people, it doesn’t. But sometimes you want to be bigger than you are — for better penetrative sex or for other sexy fun. Your penis pump can temporarily increase the size of your penis. Be safe with your pump and don’t overdo it just to get a bigger penis. Penis pumps do offer the ability to increase your penis size slightly; however this is not their main function and most of the time this enlargement is temporary.

Final thoughts and penis pump tips

To make sure you have a better experience with your penis pump, remember these tips:

Begin slowly. The first time you use a pump, the sensation will be new to you. Only pump for a few minutes at a time for a couple of days a week at first, don’t overdo it. Don’t over pump. Pumping to the point of pain can leave you at risk for a penis injury; this will ruin any mood for some sexy fun.

Take breaks, you can pump a few times and rest. You can also remove your pump for a few minutes and then begin again. All this will add to your sensations and pleasure and lead to more satisfying sex. Don’t hide your penis pump. Your partner is going to notice if you’re suddenly bigger than ever. A penis pump doesn’t have to be a dirty little secret. Talk to your partner about it and maybe it can be something you enjoy together.
