Selecting Your Cylinder Size

Ah, yes. cylinder. Doh!

I probably need more girth work than length anyway. Hmm.

I wonder if anyone actually uses two different sized pumps on a consistent basis to target both? I wonder if that would actually make a major difference.

I’m also considering one of those head pumps. That may give me an excuse to go with a smaller cylinder girth that gets wider towards the very end.

Lots of guys use a couple of different cylinders. Once they have packed the narrower one, they move up. Some guys use 3 cylinders!


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.

Pump Pressure

I started pumping regularly about 2 months ago using a 2” X 9” cylinder with a MityVac hand held vacuum pump with a gauge. My penis girth is 5.5” at the base. I have recently been pumping to 10 in HG and after about 5 minutes I completely fill the cylinder in girth. My penis extends to about 7 1/4”. The routine I have been following is to pump to that point and then hold it for about 5 minutes then release and repeat for a total of 20 minutes in the pump. I shoot for doing this three times a day. After I finish pumping I massage or jelq my penis for about 5 minutes. I’ve seen some gains in length. The girth gains are temporary, lasting at best about an hour or so.

My first question is 10 in HG too much pressure? It feels okay, but I read here one should keep it at about 5 in HG. What is a reasonable gain in length and girth to expect and how long does it take to achieve?

I use pure coconut oil for lube. It is great for one’s skin so I rub any excess on my stomach, legs and chest. One plus I’ve noticed is that my penis seems more sensitive in a good pleasurable way.

According to the chart I should get a 1.75” cylinder. Is there any harm in getting a 2” cylinder now? Looking at Leluv for my pump but they have been out of the 1.75” cylinders unless I want to get a 12” length which I do not need.


Start: BPEL: 5.25" EG: ~4.5"

Current: BPEL: ~ 6.75" MSEG: ~4.75" BG: 4.825" BPFSL: 7"

Initial Goal: NBPEL: 7" EG: 5" Long Term Goal: 7.5" x 5.25-5.50"

Pumping directly to 10”hg is pushing the injury limit. It would be safer to start at 5”hg and increase slowly to 8 to 9”hg. Also doing your 20 minute pump time 3 times a day is too much and could be the reason your girth results fade quickly.

I have an alternate routine that should improve your post pump size staying power, but I think you would have to invest in a 9”X2.25” cylinder to accompany your girth expansion. I pump for 25 to 30 minutes continuously, but start the first 5 minutes at 5”hg and every 5 minutes increase 1”hg until you get to 8 to 9 “hg and hold that level for the remaining time. Then release and do your 5 minute massage, preferably with a cock ring to hold your post pump size. Just do this routine once a day and repeat every other day to give your cock healing time. If this works for you the same as it does for me, you will see a significant flaccid size increase that lasts for a day or more until it starts to become permanent.


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.

In order to use a 2” tube you will probably have to pump with no lube so that your scrotum doesn’t get sucked into the tube. To pump without lube you have to start with an erection and start by bone pressing the tube into your crotch which will also help keep your scrotum out of the tube.

Penisdepot.com has 1.75” straight wall flared cylinders for sale, but they cost $70 and that price includes shipping.

Thanks for the reply.

I dialed the pressure back to 5” hg. It is much more pleasurable. Yesterday I pumped for a total of 25 minutes releasing the pressure after 20 minutes briefly and then doing a final 5 minute pump. I did one session in the morning and another at night. This morning my session was 30 minutes. I will give your suggestions a try.

How long do you generally leave the cock ring on? Is it just while you massage your penis? I always massage at the end of a session for a minimum of 5 minutes. I recently bought a flexible silicone 1.75 cock ring, which feels best when I put it on the base of my penis as opposed to stretching it over my entire package.

I have seen a nominal increase in flaccid size in both length and circumference, but it seems to be leveling off.

Two years ago, I had a prostatectomy because I had prostate cancer. The surgery was a complete success, which is great. My prostate was the size of a racket ball according to my doctor. As he predicted, I lost an inch or more in length due to the shortening of the urethra. Hopefully, one’s urethra can be stretched. My flaccid penis is a little over 6” at present. It would be great if I could regain that inch or so I lost. Of course more would be even better.

I just leave the cock ring on while I massage my penis. I also use an elastic cock ring that is actually a ½” wide rubber band used to hold broccoli stalks together in the grocery store. I also put it on the base of my penis.

Tons of guys would kill for a 6” flaccid, so even after your surgery, consider yourself very blessed.

I have tried 2 sessions per day many times and it has never worked for me no matter how much I think it should. For me my best results are now happening at the one long session per day, done every other day.

I started to pump recently with a 2” diameter pump and have been having good results, but yesterday I tried a 1 1/2” tube and the effect was dramatic.

A lot less expansion and swelling but incredible stretch that I could control easily, and 110% EQ this morning.

Today I will start with the smaller tube and then move up to see what happens.


Began December 2009 at 5 7/8" length and 5" girth.

As of December 5th 2012 7 3/8" BPEL and 6 1/8" base girth.

Going for the magic 8"x6"

I was saying that narrower tube promotes more stretch. Try a 1.75” tube. With pumping and sex soon after our cocks are like cake dough. You only have so much dough. So a narrower tube pumping for an hour or so youll have s narrower but longer spear for sex, a wider tube and youll have a wider but shorter spear for sex.

Do you think these distortions become permenant over time?

Somrwhat yes. But immediate pumping gains are real and fun. Titleist says all his gains was pumping. I started with hanging and extenders, that definately gave me more than a extra inch in erect and flaccid. Pumping gave me more girth, for sure. But the 5-10% temp pumping gains are fun to use for sex.

I live with my wife and wouldn’t have the privacy necessary to give her the swelled up version.

The benefits I get from pumping are EQ and stamina and added sensitivity, which are awesome but I’d obviously like more actual permenant growth.

True.

Starbucks maybe, don’t like the smell of McDonalds.

Take your point though, thanks.
