You are properly looking for a penis pump that will help you gain strong, big and long lasting erections? At least I was 3 years ago.  I had used an air based penis pump for a couple of months but it was simple not powerful enough. I picked up the Bathmate after reading through a ton of reviews and it has served me well the last 3 years!

How does Bathmate work?

Bathmate and all other penis pumps works by creating a vacuum in a chamber where your penis is, the vacuum forces more blood into your penis thus increasing its size and creating a strong erection. The increased size is temporary in the beginning and will only last around 1-2 hours – the time it stays larger will increase with the number of times you use the pump.

In the end you will gain a permanently larger penis and the ability to get strong and long lasting erections.

The vacuum is created by pumping water or air out of the tube with a hand pump or an electric pump.

This is what happens when you use a penis pump

There are 3 chambers that hold blood during an erection, they are called Corpora cavenosa (you got 2 of those) and Corpus spongiosum. See picture below

how does bathmate work?

The chambers expand more during a penis pump session than during an erection – this creates micro-tears in the tissue that leads to the growth of new cells and a larger and stronger penis.

Steps on How to use Bathmate Penis Pump:

Use it in your bathtub, shower or at a sink.

  1. Put a finger on the top vent to prevent water from running out
  2. Put the device under water or under a running tap until it’s filled. Use water that are a bit hotter than your body temperature, this will make it more comfortable and more effective.
  3. Gently push the device up around your penis and pump a few times, until it sits firmly against the base of your penis. Pump out water a few times with 5-10 seconds intervals and wait for your penis to adjust to the vacuum. You should be able to feel the vacuum but it should never be uncomfortable.
  4. The pump will lose a bit of vacuum – just pump one time every 5 min. to regain a strong vacuum.
  5. If you pump too much (You will know the feeling – trust me!) just push the vent to one side and release some pressure.
  6. After 15-20 minutes, release the pressure and remove the penis pump. For first time users, you’ll be surprised with the results!

Tips: It can sometimes be difficult to get a good seal between the pump and your skin, try the following to get a better seal:

  • Shave off the hair around your penis.
  • Apply water to your skin and the bottom of the pump.
  • Put some Vaseline on the bottom of the pump.

The girth gains is very nice!

What will Bathmate do for you?

  • Get strong and rock hard erections after just 5 min. of use – You can use the Bathmate right before sex to get a strong erection if you suffer from erectile dysfunction.
  • Or use it on a regularly basis (4-6 days a week) and get a permanently larger penis.

Why did I buy it?

I bought the Bathmate to get stronger erections, I suffer from low blood pressure and it was difficult for me to maintain a strong erection during sex. My penis size was on the small side but not too bad, so I used the pump 5-6 days a week to get a larger penis and just before sex to get strong erections.

This is the results I gained during the last 6 months:

This is the Bathmate results from my test

Is it safe?

It’s completely safe to use, as long as you follow the instructions closely. Just remember: It should never be painful to use a penis pump! Just release some pressure if you have created a too strong vacuum.

Take at least one day off each week – Using a penis pump is a bit like exercising, your body need rest to recover and grow stronger.

What do I like/dislike about the Bathmate?

This is my personal opinions based on the 6 months that I have used the Bathmate.

The good stuff:

  • Immediate results: You will be able to get a strong erection in just 5 min! I went “WOW” after my first penis pump session, it was freaking huge and this was after just 15 min.! I would have to use a penis extender for more than a month to get to the same size!
  • Permanent results: With consistent use, expect those immediate gains to turn into permanent results.
  • Strong erections: Get strong and long lasting erection without the use of drugs with nasty side effects. Strong erections can be achieved in just 5 min.
  • Penis curvature correction: Using a Bathmate will results in a straighter penis.
  • It’s cheap: The Bathmate is a lot cheaper than other water based penis pumps.

The bad stuff:

  • Bad seal: It can be a bit difficult to get a good seal between the pump and your body. It was however only a problem in the beginning.
  • Calcium in the vent: I live in an area with a lot of calcium in the water – It will start to accumulate in the top vent if you don’t wash it properly.
  • Tube size: The tube size is not that big and you will outgrow the size faster than you think.

Bathmate testimonials

The following are testimonials from men around the world who has been using Bathmate for a minimum of 3 months. I have changed their real name and location for privacy protection.

I’m a happy Bathmate owner

I have been a happy Bathmate owner for the past 5 months and have been really impressed with the pump. I use the pump 3-4 times a week to add size – I started out at 5 (12,7 cm.) inch-long and 4.5 (11,43 cm.) inch girth and so far, I have gained over 0.6 (1,52 cm.) inch in length and almost 1 (2,54 cm.) inch in girth! I have not told my girlfriend about the pump but she has mentioned the size of my penis (In a positive way 🙂 ) several times in the last couple of months!

Perfect erections in just 5 min!

I saw Bathmate first time in a commercial 3 years ago and thought “Why not” and it has not let me down once. I used to struggle with weak erections that would become so soft that they were useless for sex. Now I use it before sex and I’m able to get and maintain a strong erection during intercourse. This pump is a clear 5-star product for me.

    I have a very small penis (4 inches) can I use a penis pump? And how much can I gain in 1 month?

      Yes that is not a problem – I know “2 inch” men who use a penis pump with great succes.
      You should use the pump for more that 1 month, but you should be able to see notable girth gains and a bit of length gain in just 1 month.

    Hi Austin ,
    I bought an bathmate hydromax pump x20 and have been using it for 2 week. I read from the internet that it require warm water. I was wondering I living in Malaysia and the weather was hot. Does water obtain from the water tap consider warm water ?

      Austin St.

      I use water that’s around 40 degree Celsius (104 Fahrenheit). Most heated tap water can get hotter than that – Do you have a thermometer to measure the temperature?
      It’s not super important that the water is 40 degree but it should be around your body temperature.

    I have no comment , but a question. I am 60 years old high bp and sleep apenea. Suffer from ed and not being able to keep an erection. I have tried some male enhancement pills. Sizegenix, Extenze. Some from GNC and Vitamin World. Not to many good results with any. I have been reading different reviews on some like Tek Msle. gRockme, Vigrx plus. Virile. Virmax. Do you know anything about these? Or others? What would you recommend? Also what about a cream? I am looking for something to take daily and or maybe at the moment of sex, like Viagra. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

      I would go for Male Extra pills ( if you want to take some kind of supplement and take it in a combination with the use of a pump. The pills you mention are “okay” but they work way better when you combine them with some kind of physical training (penis exercises, penis pump or penis extender (for enlargement)).
      But you should talk to your doctor about your sleep apnea and taking supplements.

      I’m happy that you like the site and find the information useful. The results you gain are permanent and will last the rest of your life.
      I personally continued to use it after I achieved my goal, it’s a good erection training and I kind of like the feeling when I use it.
