starting pumping

It seems I have reached my plateau with stretching and jelqing only, although my gains aren’t so representative. So, I decided to start pumping.
You can review my stats and routine in my profile pages.
I am about to buy a simple pump without a gauge.

I have a question regarding the pressure in the pump, what is approximate number of pumping squeezes required to reach 2-5Hg.
(5,10,50,100?) I have no experience in pumping, and I don’t want to buy expensive pump with gauge for tryout.
thanks guys.

Why buy a pump without a gauge? The ones with a gauge aren’t that expensive.

If you’re determined to buy a pump without a gauge, consider reading Pumping without a gauge.

It’s going to be difficult to come up with a precise calibration of how many squeezes will translate to any given vacuum level. It would depend on the size of the bulb and being able to squeeze it exactly the same amount every time; the size of the tube, the size of the penis (which would determine the residual air in the cylinder to be evacuated), vacuum leaks, and so on.


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

I always try to go into the tube erect or close to it. As I’m pumping, I can visibly see my length expanding to the max 1/4 to 1/3” expansion that I get in the tube. For me, this always occurs at 5hg, so even without looking at my gauge, I can tell when I’m at 5hg. I do have a gauge however, and usually stay around 4hg. And this visual method of pressure determination would require a gauge to begin with.

If you insist on pumping without a gauge (could be dangerous and harmful), never pump beyond the slightest ache in your glans. If you do feel pain, release the vacuum and start over. Don’t wait and hope the pain will subside.

ok thanks. well, I have just ordered a simple pump for ~15usd [including shipping].
I’ll be careful, I promise :)

Is there any test to check vacuum suction at the base?

Rub lube inside base of cylinder and edge of cylinder. Place cylinder over shaft, press against your pubic fat pad, and start pumping slowly. Make sure the bottom edge of cylinder is as close against your shaft and away from your balls as possible and hold cylinder tight against your fat pad because if you don’t, you are going to suck in your balls and that is very painful. Some people tie a sash around their balls and pull them down just to be sure they are not sucked in.

As long as your dick continues to grow or doesn’t start to shrink, you have a decent vacuum. However, be aware that cheap cylinders have thin walls and you will start to feel discomfort around the base after 10 minutes or so. There are silicone donuts available to fit on the base to make it more comfortable.

Be careful and enjoy watching your dick grow.

Hmm good advise, I might tie them for the first use.

I have started pumping two days ago.. Everything went smoothly, I had to remove rubber seal at the base, it was too tight, now it is only “a tube and a lube” :D :D

On the next day my unit felt somewhat non elastic , probably it was accommodating to a new king of stress.

I was 4 minutes in a tube, and pushed the pump balloon only three times, which was enough to enlarge my unit for ~0.4 inches in length, I wish I knew the exact pressure :(

Is that amount of pressure enough?

If it were me, it would be more than enough—as I said above, I max out at 5hg, and usually have 1/4 to 1/3” max extension over normal erect length at that pressure.

ok, thanks, I wish I could get more answers on this from other members..

If you’re getting expansion - if your penis is being stretched - then the amount of vacuum is enough. Watch your PIs and your EQ to make sure that it is not too much.

I did my second session yesterday, strange thing is that my unit goes back to normal after releasing the pressure.
When pumping, my dick grows but veins stays visible, they haven’t been hidden by fluid.
well, I guess it is very hard without a gauge, for the beginners.
My PI’s are good btw.
My sessions are 5 min, 1 day on - 1 day off.

I have updated my routine page.

You are not going for any kind of permanent growth right now, so don’t expect your results to last. The only thing you are doing right now is conditioning yourself to pumping and evaluating if you like it and it seems to give you positive expansion to your liking. If you decide that pumping is for you, then you should seriously consider buying a professional cylinder and a pump with a gauge. That piece of crap you have right now won’t last long anyways. :) Then you can start working up your pump times similar to the newbie routine outlined in the first post of avocet8’s Pumping 101 thread. There is no PE method that gives instant results, but pumping does give you an immediate feedback on what might be possible in your future and as you become conditioned and get in a month or 2 of consistent pumping, your results will start lasting much longer.


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.
