Pumping Gains

It does take a while to get in the pumping groove, have you tried some porn to get you more in the mood ?

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.

That all sounds completely normal for a beginner. It took a while for mine to grow in the tube from the vacuum. I go in almost completely erect, 80%-90%, you still want some elasticity to your unit. Stay at a low pressure and gradually build to 5in (that’s my max i like). Over time increase to duration of your sessions. Also warm up pryor to pumping and i like wrapping a warm rice sock around the tube while I’m in it as well. You will come out flaccid, that’s normal. Just keep going slow until you get the hang of it and adjust your routine from there.

Edit: if you’re coming out purple shorten your time a bit till your penis is used to the vacuum. I pack the tube for the first 3 inches but the rest doesn’t touch the sides unless I’m using heat, and my glans never does.

capernicus1: I actually recently started doing that because I read it on another thread… I’m coming out erect now and I think it’s helping. But I don’t want to have to watch porn all the time to do this. I’ve been doing really good and haven’t looked at porn in a long time, so if there were other alternatives I’d prefer them.

ErectusMaximus: That’s what I’ve been doing, it’s been getting better actually. I don’t really see much increase in size though, is that normal? What have your experiences been like? Did you gain within the first few weeks?


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

So I also seem to have accumulated a small donut effect… This is just means accumulated edema right? As far I as I know from reading the forum it’s not really indicative of good or bad results. However, in the area of the donut (1/2 in from glans) there has appeared a small hard area, kind of like an apple’s stem. Its straight and thin, but it’s a little harder and more raised than the rest of my skin. Like in my apple comparison, its like the stem is under my skin, and I can feel it with my finger. If I press on it, it can level out, but it pops back up. It doesn’t hurt, but I’m wondering if this is a bad thing? Today I just moved to 2 sets of 10 min each at 5Hg or less.Any thoughts are appreciated.

I just want to make sure I’m doing this right.

Sounds like you might have a small blocked lymph vessel, try some heat and massage that usually clears it.

Interesting thread. I’m taking an interest because I’ve never pumped, but might try it at some point :)


I'm fed up of having a signature!

You can reduce and over time eliminate edema by getting erections in the tube and keeping them for as long as possible. After a short 10 min set, cycle the pressure back to 0 (stay in the tube), do some kegels (20-30 works for me), and pump back up. When you come out of the tube, massage your penis to full erection, and masturedge (massage/masturbate/edge) for about 8-10 mins. Edging means coming close to ejaculation without ejaculating.

I can now pump up to 8.5 Hg in my 9x2 within 30 mins after a day of extender use and after doing the above, I have absolutely no edema or donut. I’m half an inch away from the end of the tube while in tube.

Hung 20lbs for 7 months without any gains?! You are more unlucky than me! I would have given up if I were you, props for continuing. I am back myself for the 989th time to try get some girth and I will do water pumping combined with jelqing and ADS religiously.


Start: 6.3 BPEL x 4.5 MSEG & 4.5 BSEG

Now: 7.7 x 4.7 x 5.5 BSEG

Goal: 8 x 6

capernicus1: I don’t know if that is what it is, but I did as you suggested to no avail. It’s still there, and is most prominent when I pump.

marky777: It’s worth trying, it’s been almost a month for me and I’m not sure if I gained anything yet (don’t think so). It’s nice to see your dick a little bigger too haha.

jay9incher: I already pump with erections at around 90%, I watch porn to stimulate. I don’t know if I’m getting that much edema, only that I do have that little donut effect. So a donut effect is not a positive or negative indication of anything, correct? It’s just a side effect?

TenInchGoal: I didn’t start at 20lbs haha. I was at 20lbs probably for 2 months. I moved up slowly, I wasn’t trying to break my dick haha.

I read somewhere that you should only ejaculate/masturbate on days that you pump on. Is it supposed to be before you pump, or after? I don’t really want to start masturbating because I’m doing pretty good at not. But since I watch porn while pumping, and I edge, I do want to let it all out eventually.

On the subject of edging as well. In my understanding of edging, you simply masturbate until you have to cum and then stop and kegel or prevent yourself from ejaculating and you repeat that many times. After a bunch of times, are you supposed to actually ejaculate or do you just stop masturbating without release? Usually when I edge I don’t cum, but I also don’t feel like I’m improving.

It seems that my small lump as actually also gotten bigger in the last couple days… still shaped like an apple stem, about .25 in from my glans, running parallel to it. I don’t know if that makes sense. It doesn’t hurt or anything, so I’m just going to keep an eye on it.

You do not need to use porn to inspire you mate. In my case I would rather cast the porn stash aside warm up my unit, ensure I have constant heat in some form or another and just pump. In most cases I go in flaccid and with some jelqing in between sessions I finish off with a rock solid erection.
Some time just an elongate flaccid hang but nonetheless the gains still come.

Be patient take care of your penis and still growth and it will come into form for you.


05/12/2005 : BPEL: 6.1"x EG:5.5" Current as of : 24/12/2011 : BPEL 7.87" x EG: 6.3" Long term Goal 8.5"x 6.4"

" There is only one option success; for failure is the refusal to persist"

I had a question about “packing” a tube. A lot of people say this, but I don’t really know what it means. Does it mean most of your shaft is touching the cylinder wall? I thought that was bad, because vacuum pressure will then focus on the glans and you can get blisters. If packing is a truly good thing though I would like to know. If it is I’m planning to go down one size in my cylinder for sure.

There is a theory that when you pack the tube that pressure is redirected to lengthening the penis as it can go no further in expanding width ways. The vacuum pressure can not concentrate on the glans, if you pump at say 2hg then there will be 2hg of vacuum applied to the glans or any other part that is exposed to the vacuum, it doesn’t concentrate because there is less area. I would tend to be of the opinion that there would still be 2hg of vacuum applied in the lengthways direction whether you pack the tube or not, of course my opinion may not be right, but to me it is the most feasible thought on the matter.

What do think about traction wrapping after pumping session? To speed up the gains and cementing..

When I pump I condom pump, then afterwards I do “Firegoat Rolls” for discoloration removal and I wrap to reduce fluid build up, but that’s all I wrap for.
