Just bought my first penis pump. No gauge; help!

Just bought my first penis pump. No gauge; help!

So after maybe 5 months jelqing I decided to go out and by myself a penis pump (link to product at bottom of the page) which I bought from my local sex-shop, Not may choices really :( . It looks to be a very basic set, but it doesn’t have a gauge. What are my options? Can I count the pumps? Could somone please guide me to a good beginners routine with the pump? The pump did come with any real instructions.

I can already tell why penis pumps are so populer, never had so much fun with a pump before ahha

I was also wandering the best way to go about using the pump, should I pump till I get a good erection then release the pressure and start again? Or should I keep the vacuum lvl for the length of the pumping session(10minutes)? What if I lose my erection?

Sorry about all the questions I just want to make sure I’m doing it correct, I also know that there is alot of very well informed people on these forums, just trying to get the most of it :D .

Read avocet8’s pumping 101 thread. There’s a ton of good info there. I’d be really really cautious (especially for a newbie pumper) with a pump with no gauge. I’ve been pumping for years and I’d still be cautious.

Thanks it was a very good read, till doesn’t answer a few of my questions. I was wandering which was the best way to go about using the pump. 1 pump slowly till you get a full erection& leave the vaccum level the same till the end of pumping session? 2 Pump slowly till erection & release air pressure & start again till end of jelq session?

It is hard to know what the heck you are doing without a gauge.

Go to the autoparts store and look for a “brake bleeder pump” with a gauge. Should be relatively cheap.

An example from the US:

Yah had no clue what I need till I read this forum section of pumps, I’ll go to the auto shop today. The penis pump is pretty good quality for it’s price though :D , I’m in love. But still no one has answered my question to the best way to use the pump, should keep vaccum lvl constant through 10 minute seassion?

I was also wandering if it was a good idea to use the pump during rest days? My current routine

-10 minute warm, sock
-20-25 minute jelqs
-10 minute pump, pumping till enlarged for a few minutes, then starting again. (Is this right?)
-5 minutes warm down, water
-300 kegals / 100 pc holds depending on week.

Isn’t there info on that in the 101 thread?

Nothing that really answers my question, he talks about things you should not do & tips on how to messure & get started. But he never goes into detail about weather or not you should keep the pump at a cetain lvl for the duration of the seassion, stopping starting. Is it really that hard of a question? Or do poeple just wing it? Can’t really find a straight answer, I’m going to go buy a gauge from the auto shop shortly as well :D

With my bathmate I just go for one level and leave it there. Never heard much of changing levels.

OK, DonkeyBruce01, here’s a routine to use without a gauge:

- before your session - shave or trim at the base of your cock

- start out flaccid or somewhat erect

- choose your lubricant and apply it to your cock

- OK to do some warmup before you pump, if you want to jelq or stretch.

- have a heat source ready - rice sock, heating pad or microwavable pad

- enter the tube, and start applying suction until you have achieved a good solid vacuum at the base of your penis. If you can pull the cylinder away from the base of your penis and it doesn’t break free with a gentle pull, you’re there

- increase the vacuum level a little bit; not much (this is where the gauge would come in handy) Apply the heat source to the outside of your cylinder to keep things warm during your session. You can’t rely on a sense of ‘stretch’ to know how much vacuum you’ve applied, and pain or discomfort is not a reliable sign that you’re overdoing. Overdoing can happen well before that.

- hold that level of vacuum for five minutes. You may need to pump the pump a little from time to time as your penis expands to maintain the same level of vacuum. Again, this is where a gauge would come in handy, in knowing when to apply more vacuum.

- when five minutes is up, release the vacuum (pushing in with your finger at the base of the tube should break the suction) and exit the cylinder. Jelq or massage as you wish. You’re done for at least the next 24 to 48 hours. Watch your PIs and EQ. Watch for red spots on your cock (broken capillaries).

- in 24 to 48 hours, repeat. After you’ve done this a while, you’ll probably want to add time. Add another five minutes and see how your penis handles it, based on your PIs, EQ and any red spotting. If adding five minutes is too much, try two 3 minutes sessions instead, and work your way up. Jelq or massage between the two sets in your session.


For Lampwick, becoming hung like a donkey was the result of a total commitment.

That’s the advantage of having a gauge. You can know what level you’re at to be able to maintain it.

Some pumpers increase the vacuum level in the course of their session, or from set to set in their routine.

The Bathmate, of course, being water-based and with an entirely different pumping mechanism, has its own rules. I’ve noticed with my Bathmate that it seems fairly self-limiting in terms of how much vacuum you can apply.

Thank you very much, that was the perfect answer, more then perfect really. That should be added as a sticky or at least added to avocet8 sticky.

Thanks, DonkeyBruce01. Let us know how it works for you.

I never used a gauge.
