Do pumps work?


Do pumps work?

Ok men, here is my question:

Do pumps work?

Manual stretching and jelqing have gotten me pretty far. I am NOT complaining about an extra inch of erect length after 9 months but… I WANT MORE!

I guess I am enjoying PE and have a personal goal of a 7” penis.. ok, maybe a 7.5” penis. Wifey has a definite increase in sexuality when around my bigger dick. She even sucked it the other day prefacing the act by saying out load “I’m gonna suck it!” I also find I can talk dirtier with wifey now that I have a bigger dick. I can say things like “I’m going to fuck you with my big cock!” and then back up my words. She doesn’t know I have been PEing… but she has noticed an increase in size. She attributes it to kegals I told her I was doing to improve prostate health. I love watching her reactions to my now 6.75 incher! In fact I feel I have short changed not only her when I was 5.75 bone pressed to the max inches but all past lovers.

I enjoy my routine nearly every morning. And will continue working that way. Can I enhance my routine with a pump? Hanging seems like a great option too, but I don’t think I really have the time or the privacy to do that. Maybe I do? But here at work (I own my business) I can lock the door at night when everyone is gone and wank if I wish. The pump seems quicker to work with… no real setup time… just whip it out and pump away. I can lock it up in my draw behind my files. I might even consider it as a wanking aid.

Forgive my honesty… but I really want to know your opinions!

So again, do pumps work?

You should read pumping 101 in the pumper’s forum. I have been pumping since Nov. 20th, and, though not officially measuring for another 4 months, I know I have gained about 3/8-1/2 ” of length and some girth at the the bottom 1/3 of my dick. That’s the only downside. I don’t want to measure because I believe it lead me to slightly injure myself ( long story ), but from years of construction work I know exactly at which point on my middle finger measures 3”. So, whilst in a 10” tube, it’s pretty easy to put my finger on the end and see that I am gaining.

I think that the length gains are permanent, while the girth gains seem to dissapear on my rest day. avocet says that now that he has reached his target size, he is able to maintain it pumping only 4 or 5 times a month.

Pumping seemed wierd at first, but now I find it fun.

My routine:
1) 5-10 min. rice sock
2) 15 min. pump @ 4.5-5 in/hg
3) 10 min. intense jelqing
4) repeat 2)
5) repeat 3)
6) repeat 2)

If you go this route make sure to wrap the tube with a heating pad. It really speeds the expansion process along.

Most would recommend a pump with a gauge. It’s easy to go overboard without one.

Pumps do work,

but it’s been my experience that you have to stay dedicated to see the fruits of your labor. You don’t see much in the beginning, but as time passes weeks, months you will start to see the changes come.

I pumped for 3 months straight last year and saw some very good girth gains and some length increase. I was really after length more than girth so started hanging again. If I’d stayed with it, I’d be huge by now! It really depends on what you are after. Given enough time months even years you could see a vast improvement.

If you want to get serious about pumping I would say look at sites like LA pump ( or or Boston Pumpworks and PumpToys.
They offer the real deal when it comes to pumping! Get one with a gauge so you know how much pressure you’re using (very important!)

I use an LA pump, 1 3/4” x 10” tube with a Mityvac hand pump w/gauge. It is excellent quality!!! After 1 month of pumping (again), I’ve already increased 1/8”- 1/4” in girth.

I now also use the Thera-P wrist strap after every pump session. This thing is the trick to staying pumped up for as long as you want and only cost $8.95. Can’t beat that.

Yes, read Avocet’s pumping 101 post.

Hope this helps,


I agree with averageguy and ineed. You really need a pump with a gauge, and, while kind of expensive, I have been very satisfied with LA Pump’s product. It has a nice wide flange for a good seal and a gauge. If and when you pump, and, if and when you experience a “donut” ( do a search ), you’re going to want to know the pressure and duration under wich it occured so that you can avoid that kind of fluid build-up in the future.
You can go to any porn shop in your immediate area and purchase a cheap pump, but it probably won’t serve you as well as following the advice here at Thunder’s.

Like I said before, go to the pumper’s forum and read pumping 101. I did, followed the routine, and have been very pleased with the results. Pay very close attention to- ” newbies when your time is up, stop”. Results will come, I guarentee it.

Is this thing any good?

For that price might as well spend a few more bucks and get a real quality setup with a guage. If you have the dough get an electric, your dick will thank you.

Do you see that black rubber gasket at the bottom of the cylinder? First indicator the system is no good and that gasket will wear out quickly and probably means the cylinder is thin walled and cheap. The Plastic pump also looks cheap and there is no gauge. I started out on cheap systems like this and believe me, they don’t last and you can not do serious pumping with them. Pass by any system that has a gasket at the bottom of the cylinder that looks like that one.

Go for the Vacutech, they are the best of the best.
I have the 1. Best Value System, and it’s worth every dollar I spent on it.

Edit by ThunderSS

I actually prefer the deluxe pump package found at this site. Note, the pump is brass and has a gauge and the cylinders are thick walled with a flared end. I used this brass pump for 2 years and it still pumps like new.…egory_Code=Pkgs

The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.

Personally, I am perfectly convinced that it will work. Unfortunately, “hard gainers” like me will have a difficult time with any progress. Guess the ligs & tunica are too tough from years of self abuse.

At any rate, I get a good pump, and must admit that it looks pretty “cool” in the tube. (I have a homebuilt rig) I can get to just over 6’ most of the time, and have gotten nearly 6.5’ during a short 8mmhg pull.

I have a clear plastic ruler taped to the tube so I can look at stretch during the pump session. It is both a current look, and also provides some incentive to get that next line. I am not “pushing it” by any means. I value my dick - even if it is somewhat less than what I want it to be - and don’t want to burst anything.

If you do your reading, and really look at the responses to pumping questions, I am sure that you will see that as a regular part of a good breakfast - oops, wrong commercial - part of a good program of manual exercise, you will see gains.

I am still working on it - but am confident that it will happen.

Guys I wanna buy a pump but i don’t know the sizes, they seem big arent’ they.

Help out please

Go to

Scroll down. At the bottom of the site list is a “Sizing” page. Click on that and you’ll get a chart. Unfortunately most of the tube sizes are built for guys who are into extreme pumping. Don’t be intimidated by that.

If you don’t see something right for you, ask back. A lot of us fall between two tube sizes.



Based on avocet8’s “Pumping 101” and the thread by the 75 year old pumper (craigw?), I ordered the deluxe kit from LAPump ( yesterday. It’s pricey, and later that day I read the thread on making your own for about $30, but I decided that my dick and I are worth a slightly higher VISA payment.

BTW, thanks, avocet, for that thorough and motivating primer.
