First Pumping Session!

First Pumping Session!

I did it! Got my LA pump in the mail today and couldn’t wait to give it a spin. Hair was trimmed, lube was readied. I got the starter kit from LA and it’s of excellent quality. The pumping mechanism is brass and has a very legible gauge. The tube I’m using is the smallest. At first I thought I ordered one up but checked again and made sure I hadn’t. The tube is 8” by 1.5” which is certainly enough for my 5”x4” erect penis.

First, I warmed-up for 5 minutes with hot towels so my penis was feeling half-plump and felt nice and warm.

Second, I applied a lot of lube and worked it all over the penis and the rim of the tube. I did some light jelqs to get the blood moving and then I entered the chamber while just about completely flaccid. I started pumping carefully, unsure of how many squeezes were necessary to get proper pressure, but I kept my eye on the gauge. I kept going to 3Hg and left it there for a few minutes before going up to 5Hg. I stopped at 5Hg. The pump was good at keeping its seal though it need an occasional refresher squeeze to stay at 5Hg as I moved the cylinder around.

The feeling was a bit odd. Very much like when you pull you penis skin very taut to masturbate. The only discomfort I felt came from where the base of the tube met my rather ample fat pad. At the point they met it slightly painful but no part of my penis or testes felt pain so I left the pressure at 5Hg and watched the show. My penis became redder as the minutes passed. Veins became more defined and the glans took on a maroon color. It was nice to see my glans being the same width as the shaft as it almost never is unless I’m very hard. I purposely entered the tube soft so that any erection I achieved would come solely from the pressure in the chamber. This was aided by the unsexy distraction of a documentary on History International channel.

After 5 minutes I released the pumping mechanism and gently unsealed the tube from below. I then lubed-up my hands again and began massaging the penis and testicles. I had to ejaculate to lose my erection so I did so and then did some deep tissue rubbing to get and keep the blood flowing. This went on for a good 7 to 8 minutes with liberally rubbing of the fat pad, penis, and scrotum.

Now I’m sitting on the couch with my laptop and typing away. I can feel my penis hanging about 3” further than it normally does. It’s like a floppy semi-hard. My penis never does this. He’s a perpetual turtle so the idea of having something between my legs other than my balls feels really weird. I really like it!, but the feeling is still kind of alien.

Please give me your comments. I tried to follow Avocet’s newbie routine to the best of my memory and will continue to do so. So far I have no uneven swelling or spots but perhaps it’s still too early. I’ll give myself another thorough inspection in an hour and then again in a few hours after that to be sure there’s nothing wrong.

Many thanks guys!!

Sounds like it went pretty good, so good stuff!

Following Avocet’s guide is the key, and was the key to my own modest gains with the pump. That said, I am pretty sure it says in there to enter the tube with an erection. (And if it doesn’t, well this is the conventional wisdom: entering the tube with a boner helps prevent fluid buildup.)

If you were going to have the dreaded purple spots you would already have them, so good for you in not pushing it too hard. (Discipline like this is rare for first-timer pumpers!)

Good Luck!

Try milking the tube when you pump - feels very good.

Milking the tube? I don’t know what that means.

My penis doesn’t pack the tube at all. Even toward the end when I imagined there’d be the most expansion my penis only touched the walls of the cylinder here and there at small points. The head didn’t touch at all.

Thank you both for the replies and the encouragement!

Pulling lightly on the tube, up and down, up and down … kind of makes it hard to focus on History International Channel though.

So the tube rubs against the glans? My glans doesn’t make contact with the sides. Grrr.

I need to take some (what I hope will be) before pictures. Now to get my camera back from my father.

Thanks again!

P.S. - Is that really you in the avatar Cdr. Blop? Did you really faint at the Trooping of the Colour?

How can you milk the tube without releasing the pressure?

Jason: Packing will take a few months or longer. Go slowly and take plenty of breaks during your sessions and I think you should do 1 day and two days off for a while then 1 on and 1 off for a longer while (say 2 months). You’re conditioning yourself right now. Also, try to enter the crystal vacuum chamber—hard. You want to engorge as much as possible—Kegel every 10-15 seconds to bring blood to the penis and drink at least a glass of water 1/2 half hour before session and another durinig sessions. Just remember tissue is mostly water. Jelq between sets during breaks for 5-10 minutes. You get there and soon will be ordering the 2 X 10” tube. Steve and that was a good Christmas Present to yourself.

Thanks Steven, I intend to start slowly and I think your starting process makes a lot of sense.

I can’t imagine needing a larger tube. To my mind it would be like winning the lottery.

Do keep us posted on your progress with the pumping, I am going to look into this as an option after my newbie routine.
I am also going to more than likely get a LA pump cylinder.
Sounds like a real nice setup you got.
Maybe you will have some good gains from pumping by the time I get one, be sure and tell a friend how you did so.

Good luck!:thumbs:
Peace,

Yeah, the starter package they have is great. It comes with a high-quality manual pump, tube, cylinder size of your choice (there’s a sizing chart on their page), and a DVD (silly in parts) that was actually pretty useful, particularly in demonstrating how to do the warm-down massage.

Whichever pump you get, be sure to get one with a legible and accurate gauge.

OK…. Second session down!

Warmed-up for five minutes, lubed, entered the chamber hard this time, and pumped to 5Hg for 10 minutes, pulled out, masturbated to ejaculation, then massaged for another 7 minutes. So far no donuts or anything else. I’m knocking-wood just to make sure :D .

I checked Avocet’s post again before going on this and I didn’t see where it said to enter erect. I didn’t do anything yesterday and won’t tomorrow. I think the every-other day thing would be good for the first week. This time I seemed to be more purple than before but maybe it’s the halogen light vs. the compact flourescent I was next to the first time.

I’m really frustrated about measuring in the chamber. Do they make little stickers you can put on the side to get an accurate measurement? I have a CD-ROM marker around someplace but I don’t want to mark-up the tube if I can help it. A transparent ruler sticker would work best.

Many thanks!

Really not sure if one 10 minute session is enough unless youre doing this to get conditioned first. I personally to 15 minutes at 4-5hg, wet jelq for 50 strokes or so and back in the clyinder I go. I do this for 45 minutes to 1hr on my ON days.

Milking really doesnt do much for me sensation wise but I do find that it helps make sure just your penis is in the cylinder and not too much skin from your sac.

I checked after reading this, and found this, 5-6 parargraphs into his first post in Vacuum Pumping 101

It’s easiest to get an initial seal if you go into the tube erect or semi-erect. You can also pump up if you are flaccid. If flaccid, increase pressure very gradually as you achieve an erection under pressure. Hurrying is not good for your vascular system and penile tissue is very sensitive. When you have a normal erection, you don’t achieve that in a mere 20 seconds. Take your time, work up slowly.

So in short, his advice is:

1. to get a good seal, go in erect or semi-erect
2. if you go in flaccid, pump up very slowly

In my own experience, and from what I have read at Thunder’s (and maybe elsewhere?), many people advise to enter the tube with a full blown erection. The reason being, which Avocet alludes to, is it is easier on the penis and prevents trauma and the end result of trauma: fluid build up.

It will take a long time to pack the tube bro but don’t be discouraged. I wasn’t even close to packing my 10x1.75” to the sides 4 months ago but now I pack around the base and the fatness is starting to even out down my shaft (toward the glans). My glans also did not touch the sides for awhile - the key here is power jelqs and even Uli’s inbetween pumping sets. By the third set you should be pretty engorged and close to touching the sides.

Also - just a suggestion to give condom pumping a try. Talk about engorged! It’s the only way I pump!
Cheers.
