Beginner Pump Follies

Beginner Pump Follies

Okay, so I guess I’ll be doing manual stretches, jelqing, and ulis a little longer. My first attempt at pumping totally failed.

So, I bought the Whisper 40 and converted it to a vacuum. It’s pretty easy.

Then the gauge comes in. It already had a barbed end connected to it and a short tube. I hooked it to the vacuum and I got a steady 5 HG.

The cylinder with the quick release valve and the male end that goes into the tube comes in. I rush down to the pet shop and buy some tubing. As soon as I get home, I try to put the male fitting into the tubing but the tubing was too tight. No problem. I push a pen in it and stretch it out over night.

The next day, I I decide to test it out. I hook everything up and turn on the vacuum. I stick it to my chest just to see if there was suction. Yup. Check that block. Then I put my flaccid penis in it and I found something out almost immediately. In less than a minute I found out that I was too thick. Ugh! Yes, I followed the guidelines but as vacuum pressure built up and my penis started to grow, my shaft filled the walls to the point where it’s obvious that it was too small.

Well, I can use it for length…right? Nope… Here’s why. I used the quick release valve to disconnect the hose. But it appears releasing the hose does not relieve the pressure in the tube. So I had to unscrew the quick release valve at the top of the cylinder in order to release pressure. As I began unscrewing the plastic quick release valve, the damn thing breaks making it impossible to connect the hose to it again. Ugh! Ugh!

I felt totally frustrated. But frustration didn’t end with a broken quick release valve on a cylinder that’s too small. Nope… it had to go just a little further. The cylinder wouldn’t come off! Because my penis had grown in the tube, it was a bit difficult to get out. I had to wait a while and calm down… and it came off in a few minutes. Ugh! Ugh! Ugh!

I’m sensing a disturbance in the force, young padawan.

That’s a drag, but look at it this way. You learned some stuff, that you won’t need to learn again, right? Something you may have missed- consider using lube. Personally, I like to use lube, because if my penis pushes/rubs against the sides of the cylinder, ( I have a pretty pronounced upward curve which increases the rubbing) it can cause sore spots which decrease the fun of blow jobs and sex. Also easier to exit the tube if you’ve packed it tight.

Remember, that there’s a learning curve to most all of life. Especially PE. Good luck. You’ll find your spot grasshopper.

Yup, I should have used lube. I wasn’t actually going to do a session. I was just going to test drive the thing. But lube would have made it easier…

And your on point with learning. I am learning and problem solving.

Too bad though, I was looking forward to starting another 6 week program.

Thanks for the input!

LeLove offers a fairly inexpensive cylinder which you can order to fit your pumped shaft.

Current. BPEL: 6:4", EG: 5.5"

And if you get a new cylinder you need to rig in some kind of vacuum release. The button on the top of the cylinder is just to release the tube so you can walk around or do whatever with just the sealed cylinder on.

Also if you hit Harbor Freight for a brass brake bleeder and buy a cheap cylinder you can have a complete pumping system with a gauge that can pump both air and water for around $50 or less depending on whether the brake bleeder is on sale and how cheap the cylinder is.

JNewbie: great story - you ought to write comedy!

The female quick release fittings typically used on these cylinders have a built-in valve. As you discovered when you disconnect the male fitting the little valve in the female fitting closes to lock the vacuum in the cylinder. The eraser end of a pencil usually fits the female fitting and can be used to press the valve open, thereby releasing the vacuum. A better option is to add a tee fitting in the tubing and on the open leg of the tee add a small quarter-turn irrigation valve that vents to room air - close the valve for suction, open the valve to release.

As for the female fitting breaking, they are easily replaced. McMaster-Carr is a great online source but you might find them local to save on shipping costs. “Quick-disconnect tube fittings” is the term used and there are different brands and materials used. When reassembling, wrap the threads with a couple layers of PTFE (teflon) thread seal tape. Be carefully not to use too much tape or cross thread the fitting as the end of the cylinder can crack.

I venture to say that many guys who pump have a few cylinders and have made sizing mistakes too - so don’t feel bad. As DTWarren mentioned earlier on this thread, LeLuv is a good source of inexpensive cylinders and parts such as fittings - note the spelling “LeLuv” and not “LeLove” - they have their own web site and can also be found on eBay.

Lube is a good idea - there are a few threads here discussing choices of lube - silicone is nice but pricey.

Let us know how your next try at pumping goes.

Can you suggest a vacuum release?

This is some really good advice. Thanks. The tee fitting in the tubing sounds easy enough. That makes perfect sense. By having the t-fitting, I can release pressure with the tube still connected.

Yeah, I plan on getting the harbor freight brake bleeder. I’m still not sure how using water is so much better. I’ve read the posts and it interests me… but I guess I have to try it to understand. Thanks for the good advice.

I have just bought a pump which has no gauge, what do I do?

Harbor freight brass brake bleeder. Cheap, durable, has a gauge, can be used to water pump, should be included with all penis pumps. ;)

Thanks roots.. I feel as if you’re my guru with all the advice you give to me, you’re a godsend

Haha, thanks, and not a problem, just passing on the tips and tricks I have learned at Thundersplace. :)
