Bathmate Penis Pumps: The Ultimate Buyer's Guide

Bathmate pump

There are a lot of penis pumps out there on the market and choosing one can be a really confusing experience to the uninitiated...

Whether you're looking to increase the size of your penis, generally improve the vascular health of your penis, or prevent erectile dysfunction, you are going to want to get the most bang for your buck once you finally decide on the make and model that's best for you.

When we first set out to create a comprehensive guide to penis pumps, we had initially planned to cover as many different types as possible but soon found that to do so, we would pretty much have to write a whole book to get the job done right.

In the end, we decided to narrow it down to the specific type of penis pump that we preferred, hydro pumps, and the company that we felt produced the highest quality models of that type which is, in our opinion, Bathmate.

So, let's just dive right in! This is, hopefully, the last guide to Bathmate Hydro Pumps you'll ever need...

Why Are Bathmate Hydro-Pumps Preferable To Standard Pumps?

bathmate penis pumps

All penis pumps operate by creating a vacuum within a chamber where your penis is placed which causes blood to flow into your penis at a vastly increased rate. This has many benefits for erectile function as well as increasing the overall size of your penis. So what makes Bathmate hydro-pumps different from your average air-pump?

Since Bathmate's hydro pumps use water in place of air to create the vacuum required for the pump to work its magic, a more uniform force is created in the chamber which has the effect of stimulating the veins more evenly, which is safer and more efficient.

The use of warm water to create the vacuum has a dual benefit. Firstly, heat promotes expansion which makes the pump's job that much easier. Secondly, warm water has a cleansing effect by way of opening the pores so that they release any trapped, grimy buildup and improves your skin's health. Healthy skin is able to stretch more without being damage which leads to an increased overall growth potential.

Hydro-pump technology is safer and more comfortable than air-pumps and there is a drastically decreased chance of penile damage.

What You Can Expect To Gain By Using A Bathmate Hydro-Pump?

There are many benefits you can expect to experience if you put in the time and effort with your new Bathmate pump. They range from increased overall penile health to stronger, fuller erections. Let's have a closer look at what you can expect to gain through regular use of the product and adherence to their plan:

As previously mentioned, you can expect faster results and increased gains thanks to the effect that warm water has on the process. You can reasonably expect a permanent size gain of up to 1.5 inches. Depending on the elasticity of your penile tissue, you may even be able to achieve gains of up to 3 inches!

Regardless of your age or background, you can expect to experience harder, longer-lasting erections.

Most people start to see decreased trouble achieving and maintaining an erection within the first couple of weeks.

The presence of all that extra oxygenated blood flowing into your penis leads to vastly improved penile health. This means you will have better control over your orgasms, experience stronger orgasms, and will be far less likely to prematurely ejaculate.

Some people with curved penises experience a straightening effect.

The increased confidence that comes from a larger, harder penis helps with erectile dysfunction that stems from psychological causes.

How Does It Work?

Now that we know what you can expect from your pump, let's take a look at how it actually works. The first step to understanding how your penis pump works is to understand how erections work. Basically, your penis is made up of three separate chambers, one small one and two large. The small chamber is your urethra, the little tube where semen and urine leave the body. The two large chambers situated above the urethra are where the magic of erections really happen.

These chambers, called the Corpora Cavernosa, become engorged with blood when you experience sexual arousal. This causes the penis to swell and become harder, like filling up a water balloon. The more blood that flows into these chambers, the harder and larger the erection will be. That's where the pump comes in.

The vacuum created by the pump draws more blood into these chambers than normal and due to the elasticity and adaptability of the tissues from which they are made will, over time, permanently increase in size  to accommodate the new conditions.

This process, aided by the increased flow of oxygen that this blood brings, increases the overall vascular health of the penis, leading to longer-lasting, firmer erections and boosted control over ejaculation in addition to the increase in size.

A Brief History And Overview Of Available Bathmate Models

O.K., now that we know what to expect from your Bathmate pump and how it works, let's take a look at the models that are available and how to choose the one that suits you best. There are three series of pumps that Bathmate produces, the original Bathmate Series, the X-Series, and the Extreme Series. We will fully explore the details of each series in the following sections and demonstrate how to choose the best option for you.

Bathmate Series

bathmate original

It would not be hyperbole for us to say that when the original Bathmate Hercules model hit the scene back in 2006, it completely changed the penis pump game. At the time, the market was saturated with all sorts of shoddy, nearly identical pumps. Where there was variation, it was less a matter of innovation and more a matter of gimmick. All fluff, no substance.

It wasn't long before the Goliath model was released and people all over the world started to catch on to the value of Bathmate's innovative use of water in their penis pump technology. It wasn't long before porn industry insiders caught wind and began switching over to Bathmate pumps to deal with life on the set. Eventually over a million pumps in 70 countries were sold and the rest is history.

X-Series

Piggy-backing on the success of the Hercules and Goliath models, Bathmate went to work innovating on their original designs, eventually releasing the X-Series which consisted of three pumps of varying sizes that covered the gamut of penis sizes.

The new design featured a swivel function which allowed the chamber to rotate for easier viewing of the built in metrics, as well as an inclined angle change option for increased comfort and efficiency. However, these were only the beginning of the innovations this new series brought to the table.

They also added a removable comfort pad that provided a tighter, more comfortable seal so that less pumping was required to achieve maximum functionality. What I really like about this feature is that it is removable, so it's easy to clean and maintain.

One of the most important innovations they made to their design is the Superflow Latch Valve. By adding this switch-like valve to the pump, it opened up the possibility of one handed use and allowed for control of water flowing into and out of the pump. This new valve also allowed the pump to hold pressure longer and introduced a slow pressure release mechanism that added a new layer of safety by preventing over-pumping.

By adding a bellows pump to their original design, Bathmate managed to increase the suction power of their pumps by 35% as well as adding another layer of comfort to the design. In addition to the new pumping mechanism, Bathmate began utilizing new materials that increased the comfort, safety, and functionality of their pumps which permanently cemented their name in the penis enlargement industry in the process.

Xtreme Series

bathmate xtreme series

The latest iteration of Bathmate's pump design, The Xtreme Series, introduces a new pumping mechanism in the form of a detachable-pump and valve. Basically it's like the pump doctors and nurses use in hospitals on their blood pressure testing equipment. It's a little rubber ball that you squeeze to increase the pressure in the chamber. It requires less exertion to operate and adds an extra layer of expediency and efficiency to the process of creating the vacuum in the chamber.

Bathmate xtreme series


In addition to the new pump mechanism, the Xtreme series comes loaded with a whole raft of accessories that include a carrying case, lock, comfort pad, measuring gauge to track gains, and a special cleaning sponge designed specifically for the pump. This series also introduces a higher upper range for penis sizes it can accommodate.

How To Choose The Right Pump

How to choose a bathmate pump

The first thing you're going to want to do before deciding on which pump is best for you is to measure your penis' length and girth. To accomplish this you will need a ruler and a tailor's measuring tape. Choosing the right size pump is important because using a pump that is too big will result in loss of suction power and decreased gains. Here's how to measure properly:

Length

You will want to use a ruler to measure the length of your penis to ensure accuracy. Start by fully arousing your penis and pressing the ruler against the pelvic bone at the base of your penis. Be sure that the ruler is pressing the bone because fat can hide the actual length of the penis and mess up your results. Be sure to measure from the base all the way up to the tip.

Girth

To measure girth use a tailor's measuring tape for accurate results. If you don't have a tailor's measuring tape, you can also use a piece of string and measure that against your ruler.

All you need to do is wrap the measuring tape or string around the middle of your penis and record the results.

Now that you know what size you are, compare to the list below to find which model is right for your needs:

How To Operate Your Pump

Each model has a slightly different method of use and we will cover how each individual model operates in the following sections. Remember, all of these pumps have been designed for use in the shower.

 



Hercules & Goliath

  1. Get in the shower and take a few minutes to just relax.
  2. Put the black pip into the closed position and hold it there while filling the chamber with water.
  3. Place the pump directly over your flaccid penis. Make sure that the pip is closed and that the pump is forming a tight against your pelvic seat. 
  4. Be sure your testicles are completely clear of the chamber and that the positioning of the pump is comfortable.
  5. With the pump angled upwards, release the pip to open the valve and begin pumping.
  6. Slowly and evenly pump until the bellows stays depressed. This is your sign that the ideal level of suction has been reached.
  7. If you have the one-handed shower strap, now is the time to slide it into place.

My Pump Doesn't Have Good Pressure, What Should I do?

What If My Penis Isn't Becoming Erect?

You should feel your penis expanding if the pump is working properly. Most likely you haven't achieved a tight enough seal. See the above question.

What If I am Experiencing Pain Or Discomfort?

Most likely you are pumping too aggressively. Try to slow down and be sure to pump slowly and evenly. If the problem persists, discontinue use until you have talked to your doctor.
