Pumping Gains

Thanks for your opinions gentlemen. Any other opinions out there?

So, to clarify, to get started with my pumping career, I will need

- Cylinder (Thickwall)
- Sealey VS402 Vacuum Tester & Brake Bleeding Kit (Amazon)
- Pump Connector (Thickwall)

And optional:

-Silicone Rubber Vacuum Hose (Ebay)

And this is all I need right?


Goal: Any visible increase in size, so I can lay my doubts to rest.

Yes, plus lube. Really, the hose that comes with the pump will stink your house out. I recommend the ‘optional’ hose. It’s not so stiff and inflexible either; much nicer to use.

There are I believe readily available in the USA, alternative pumps (probably the same but branded differently) and cylinders made in the USA, but the above is the kit I use and like.

I do suggest you follow the sizing guidelines from the ‘choosing your cylinder’ thread on this site, and ignore the manufacturers guidelines - usually they want you to have to buy another cylinder rather quickly!


Heat makes the difference between gaining quickly or slowly for some guys, or between gaining slowly instead of not at all for others. And the ideal penis size is 7.6" BPEL x 5.6" Mid Girth.

Many thanks for your help, firegoat. I hope to acquire all these parts soon and get started on my pumping journey. I’m sure I will be back with more questions.

Out of those two I’d go for the first one as those particular plastic pumps are prone to break.

Here’s another option

http://www.amazon.com/Mityvac-MV800…vac+vacuum+pump

This is the pump I’ve used for air and water for 3 years with no problems, I completely strips down for cleaning and servicing and you can buy spare parts, worth considering.

The only thing all 3 are missing is the male connector for the cylinder but that should come with the cylinder itself.

Thanks for the input capernicus1, I think I’ll go with that. It’s pretty darn cheap too so hopefully I can get started soon. Mind if I ask how much of a role pumping has played in your PE and if you were successful?

Pumping’s been the thing I’ve done the most but I’m not a good example as either by bad luck or stupidity I’ve had no gains at all until really recently.
In the last few weeks I’ve finally seen a small length gain but still no girth which is what I’m after.

Don’t let that put you off though, plenty of guys gain fine with pumping.

Consequently, I became quite despondent when after 6 months of religiously following manufactures instructions I was not only not seeing the results it was claimed I should see in 4, I wasn’t seeing any gains at all! By that time however, I had come to enjoy what pumping did give me and continued with it wherever and whenever possible, which surprisingly was quite a lot of the time. It was somewhere in the early 2000’s and progressing onto other forms of PE through sites like Thunder, that for some reason, after all those years, I took a measurement. And too my surprise I had gained 1.5” in length. I don’t think I had been doing PE long enough to attribute any of my gains to it and care to think they had all slowly built during my earlier time pumping.

Same here and same timeline. Same experience. Takes years. Did not gain in length though. Just thickness. Hanging now for length. Got more than enough girth. Went up over 1 inch in girth from pumping over the years. Little length from pumping.

Thanks Italian10inch and capernicus1,

Capernicus1, why did you say “either by bad luck or stupidity?” Did you simply learn better techniques or did you change your routine? Or have you pumped in similar ways the whole time and for some reason have only started seeing gains now?

In the early days I used too much pressure and time and didn’t pay enough attention to PIs.
Over time your technique does improve and you learn a lot,

For the past year I’ve been on a far more sensible routine but even so I’ve only seen a small length gain in the last month which I put down to slowly building my time up to 45mins.

I used a really wide tube. Experience tells me that if you want length use a more narrow tube. I believe tube width determines girth or length gains over time. Good luck.

Just make sure you get a pump with a gauge. All my stuff is from Vacu-Tech. I don’t mind paying a little more for quality and they ship fast. Check out their site, they have many options and and a sizing chart. An extender has brought me length but you really have to put the hours in. If you have a lot of spare time, it’s worth checking into a traction device.

Okay thanks much for your help guys. I received the pump that capernicus1 recommended today. Hopefully tonight I will get the cylinder. Any tips that you wish you guys had known before you started pumping? I’m not sure what type of lubrication to use, I’ll probably go with Vit E Oil, since that’s what I used to use for jelqing. I plan to start reeeaallly slow so I don’t injure myself and I can get used to it.

Also, if anyone has recommendations for where they keep their pump kits, it would be helpful. I live with my brother, and recently my mother has come to stay as well, so tips on hiding the kit and where to pump are appreciated haha.

The best tips you already know, just keep it low and take it easy.

As far as lubes go I find the best are water based as they clean up really easy and don’t leave any residue.

I’ve been pretty busy lately but I had a chance to experiment with the pump a little bit, and I’ve officially started week 1 of my routine on Monday. I feel that I’m doing somethings wrong. I purchased all the equipment that was recommended by firegoat except for the pump which I got through capernicus1’s suggestion.

I use astroglide lubricant, lube up my unit, the bottom of the tube and a few inches inside of the tube. I try to pump slowly. I’ve tried both starting with an erect penis and a mostly flaccid penis, and I decided I like going in with an already erect penis. I haven’t exceeded 3 Hg yet, and I only pump for 10 minutes. I’m confused because I read avocet8’s “Vacuum Pumping 101” thread (which I’m going off of), and I’m not getting sensations I think I should be getting. He said the line between pleasure and pain is thin, indicating that pumping should feel good. He also said I should be able to feel expansion in my shaft AND glans. I don’t really get any pleasure out of pumping, and most of the pressure I feel is near the base where the tube is being sealed. The rest of my penis doesn’t have much feeling at all. In fact, it sort of feels a little numb. I feel a pull like I’m supposed to, but I don’t feel any expansion in the glans and only a little in the shaft. When I finish pumping, as soon as a release pressure, my penis is in a mostly flaccid state that just hangs a little longer for a couple minutes. It also seems a little darker or purplish. That coupled with the lack of sensation in the tube makes me think I’m doing something very wrong that is probably very detrimental to me. I followed the sizing cylinder chart here on TP, but for some reason I feel like maybe I got one that was a little too big. My glans doesn’t touch the sides of the tube at all, and only the base and parts of my shaft touch the tube.

I’m not quite sure what’s going on, but any advice would be appreciated. As I understand it, it’s always a good idea to warm up also, no matter what exercise I’m doing, right? I haven’t incorporated jelquing yet, as I wanted to try to get any gains from pumping first before I add stuff. I also don’t feel like my penis is getting much bigger… It just seems like the tube is pushing into my pad hard and makes it look a little longer, but very little. I can’t really gauge whether or not I’m getting a lot more girth in the tube, but it doesn’t feel like much.
