Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why men would want a penis pump

Why should you get a penis pump?

Penis pumps can do a lot of good things for your sex-life including:

Improving your sexual performance

You can gain much stronger and longer lasting erections by using a penis pump. It can also help you train your sexual stamina and avoid premature ejaculation.

Increasing the size of your penis

Some studies show that penis pumps can increase your penis size by a little. This study from 2003-2004 show that men got from 7.6 cm. to 7.9 cm in 6 months. This is however a small and old study and more recent studies has showed a much greater increase in penis size.

That’s all good but how do I use it?

How to use the Penomet – Full guide

It’s important that you use it the right way to gain the most and to avoid problems.

It all start by selecting the right Gaiter

1 – Selecting the right gaiter

penomet gaiters

Depending on the package that you got then you’ll have ether 1, 3, or 5 different Penomet gaiters.

They have the following “Force”:

  • Purple 60
  • Blue 65
  • Black 70
  • Grey 75
  • Red 80

The higher the “Force” number the stronger the suction. You should always start with the lowest suction and work your way up.

2- Fill the pump with water

The next step is to fill the pump with warm water. Make sure that the pump is closed by closing the valve in the top of the Penomet.

You should use water around 40 degree Celsius (104 F) for optimal results. Don’t worry if it’s not the exact temperature, just make sure it’s around your body temperature or a bit warmer.

3 – Put it on your penis

  1. Take the pump with one hand and move it up around your penis.
  2. Pull your balls back with the other hand to prevent them from getting sucked into the pump.
  3. Push the pump towards your body and pump out water slowly.
  4. Hold the pump once you have created enough suction. You can use the shower-strap if you use the pump in the shower.

4 – Hold it for 15 to 20 minutes.

You can follow different training routines and Penomet has even made a special training plan that you can download and follow here.

If you just want some simple training than just use it for 15 to 20 minutes. You can split it up into shorter periods and change water between or one long session.

It’s all up to you.

Speaking of using it, remember to keep to clean

5 – Remember to clean it

It’s very important that you keep your pump clean while you store it.

You can use a dishwasher (You might want to avoid that if you live with others….) or a simple brush and soap.

And you’re done!

Is it safe to use?

The Penomet is made from silicone that has been tested and awarded a RoHS Class 1 Products certification. You can read more about the RoHS certification and why it’s very important that all products that come in contact with your body such as >sex toys have that.


Just don’t over use it

It’s important that you take a take off each week to prevent overtraining and don’t make a pumping session longer than 30 minutes.

Let’s take a look at some pros and cons of the Penomet

Why you should get the Penomet:

  • Comfortable to wear –The pump is made out of safe materials which are gentle on your skin. It is a safe device you can easily wear.
  • Safe to use –You do not need a lot of training before you can use the pump; it has an easy to use design.
  • Better orgasm –If you have been having problems reaching orgasm, the pump can assure you great results.
  • Simple design –The simple design ensures you have few things to take care of as you utilize the pump.
  • Hard erections –Upon application of the pump, you can be assured of achieving hard erections.
  • Gains inches permanently –The increase in size and girth you will achieve upon application of the penis pump will be permanent.

Why you shouldn’t get it:

  • A bit expensive – It’s a little expensive compared to other products, but good quality comes at a cost.
  • Very big – The pump is very big (which is also a good thing) and I find it hard to fill it under a tap in at my sink. This is not a problem if you use it in the shower.

Okay, we know what’s good and bad about it, but which packages should I get?


There are three main packages of the Penomet penis pump. You can go for a Standard package, Extra or a Premium package.

  • Standard package –It comes with one pump and one gaiter. The gaiter is force 70.
  • Extra package –It consists of one pump and three variants of gaiters. The gaiters are force 65, 70, and 75.
  • Premium package –It consists of one pump and five variants of gaiters. The gaiters are force 60, 65, 70, 75, and 80. With a premium package, you have more options hence it is the best package.
Penomet delivery
The Penomet is deliverd in a discreet pack with no information on.


The Penomet penis pump is a good alternative to the Bathmate lineup that make the other 2 pumps(Hydromax9 and Hydroxtreme11) in the best large penis pump top 3.

The pump is very powerful and the fact that you can “upgrade” it is a big plus and the reason it ends up on the second spot on the top 3 list.

The pump is a bit expensive if you buy the premium package but it does make up for it in terms of different strength option you will have.

I recommend getting a Bathmate Hydro pump if you’re serious about penis pumps. You can read more about Bathmate here.

  1. This is by far the most comfortable penis pump that’s I’ve ever used. I had an air penis pump before and my glans would rub against the innertube of the pump and cause pain and red marks.

    1. Hi
      I agree – It’s very comfortable and easy to use. I used to use the Handsome Up penis pump that I got for $15 at my local sex toy shop and it was horriable. The rubbing agains the tube was enough for me to not use it.
      Best regards,

  2. I use penomet as well and see no problems. The gains usually remains overnight or max for 2 days. I could not do daily because of work schedule and also because it is embarrassing to use when wife at home :-D.
    I don’t know why this pump is completely out of market. It had good customer service too. Does anyone know?

    1. Hi

      I’m pretty sure they got sued by Bathmate due to their design. But they never told anybody, they just simply stopped…

  3. I never received anything from these people. A payment confirmation but nothing else. Very disappointed.
