Today we are talking all about penis pumps or vacuum constricting devices. Penis pumps can be a low-cost treatment option for men suffering from erectile dysfunction, especially when drugs like Viagra are ineffective or contraindicated. Some men experience pleasure from using pumps. Many advertisements market penis pumps with the claim that they can be used to increase penis size, but there’s no evidence that they work for this purpose. If there is an increase in penis size after using a pump, it is very temporary.
Penis pumps consist of a large cylinder and some kind of pumping mechanism such as a squeeze ball, a hand grip, or an electric device. The cylinder is placed over the penis. As air is pumped out of the cylinder, the resulting vacuum increases blood flow into the penis. Then, a constriction ring or “cock ring” is placed at the base of the penis to maintain the erection once the pump is removed.
Now, one pump we are showing is the Apollo™ Premium Power Pump. This is a professional grade vacuum pump with easy squeeze trigger handle. It has a quick release valve which is really important when choosing a pump. The quick release valve allows you to eliminate the pressure instantly if the suction is too intense or if it becomes painful which helps you avoid serious damage to the penis. The flexible, non-crimping air hose is removable and easily detaches while maintaining suction. It has a heavy-duty oversized, seamless cylinder with flanged base for a secure seal and silicone donut. The cylinder is 9.5 inches long and 3.25 inches diameter girth. You can get the Apollo™ Premium Power Pump in smoke or blue.
The next pump we are showing is the Apollo™ Automatic Power Pump. This is a high tech, fully automatic pump meaning it does the pumping for you. The ergonomically hand-held controller has an easy to read LED display which measures the PSI vacuum inside the cylinder. It has an auto start/stop button and a quick air release button. The cylinder has a textured grip, a flanged base and a body safe donut. The oversized cylinder is 10 inches long and 2.5 inches diameter girth. It requires 4 AAA batteries. You can get the Apollo™ Automatic Power Pump in smoke or clear.
Wash your pump before and after each use with soap and water. Sometimes we hear men say their pump did not work due to a lack of suction. This can be due to not having a good seal between the cylinder of the pump and your body. The seal is the most important part in creating the vacuum that allows blood to be drawn into the penis. So, you may need to trim or shave your pubic hair where the cylinder goes and apply some lube around the area to prevent air leakage.
Now, here’s a little PSA for you regarding safety when using any penis pump. You definitely want to check with your doctor before using a penis pump if you have any injuries or surgeries involving your penis, testicles or prostate, you have a blood disorder or take blood thinning medications. Always start slowly when pumping and only apply the minimum amount of vacuum pressure needed to get an erection. Over-enthusiastic pumping can cause blood vessels to burst and cause blisters to form. You definitely want to stop using the pump if you experience pain. Don’t use a penis pump while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Refrain from using pumps on a daily basis. Misuse or overuse of a pump can aggravate existing medical conditions (such as Peyronies disease, priapism, and urethral strictures) and can cause penile bruising and serious permanent injury to the penis and damage to the penile tissue. If you use a constriction ring to maintain an erection after pumping, please do not use for more than 30 minutes at a time.
