Let's get started!

CHAPTER 1

Penis Pump Functionality


In Chapter 1, we'll discuss the functionality of a penis pump.

First, you'll learn about what a penis pump does in a general and big-picture way.

Then, we'll go over the different functions of a penis pump, and how the pump mechanism actually works.

What Does A Penis Pump Do?

A penis pump uses the negative pressure created by a pump to draw blood into the shaft of the penis.

What Are The Functions Of A Penis Pump?

A penis pump has a few functions such as:

  • To increase the size, girth, and length of a penis.
  • To treat erectile dysfunction.
  • To improve the erection quality of a penis.
  • To treat the overall health and functioning of a penis.
  • To treat Peyronie's Disease.

How Does The Pump Mechanism Work?

The penis pump mechanism works by removing air from the chamber to create a vacuum and negative pressure inside the cylinder.

As air is removed from the chamber, the pressure inside decreases. According to Boyle's law, a decrease in pressure leads to an increase in volume, and hence the blood vessels in the penis expand and dilate to fill the available space and volume.

With the blood vessels expanded and dilated, there is an increased flow of blood into the erectile tissues of the penis causing them to become engorged, erect, and in some cases enlarged.

CHAPTER 2

Penis Pump Demographics


In Chapter 2, we'll discuss the demographics and main audience for penis pumps.

First, we'll look at who the main demographics are for penis pumps.

Then, we'll analyze why this audience is the target demographic and deeper inclinations.

Penis Pump Demographics

It's no surprise that the main demographic of penis pump users is men.

Beyond gender, it's difficult to pinpoint specific traits of penis pump users, but we can surmise a few things.

Traditionally penis pumps have probably been used more by older men than younger men since many more older men experience erectile dysfunction. Since penis pumps are an FDA-approved treatment for erectile dysfunction, many older men probably use them as a first option since they are cheaper and less invasive than other options like surgery.

However this trend is changing with access and widespread information, and more younger men are using penis pumps nowadays than ever before due to their desire to enlarge their penis.

We can also deduce that penis pumps are probably used more in developed countries since penis pumps would be categorized as a luxury item rather than a necessity.

Why Do Men Buy Penis Pumps?

There are many reasons why males by penis pumps. Their reasons can span from as straightforward as sexual pleasure, to more complicated like arousal and body image.

But if the question is "what does a penis pump do for men?" the answer is it can do a lot.

  • Increase your sexual confidence.
  • Augment your arousal.
  • Enlarge your penis.
  • Help treat erectile dysfunction and other penile diseases.
  • Improve your self-esteem.
  • Give you greater sexual pleasure and satisfaction.
  • Give your partner greater sexual pleasure and satisfaction.
  • Enhance your penis and sexual health.
CHAPTER 3

Penis Pump Studies


In Chapter 3, we'll take a look at studies and research done on penis pumps and their efficacy.

First, we'll analyze how penis pumps work for erectile dysfunction and Peyronie's disease.

Then, we'll examine some logs and journals of the many men around the world who have self-conducted research.

Penis Pump Studies On Erectile Dysfunction

There are several studies on erectile dysfunction that have found it to be effective at improving erection quality and erectile functioning, especially when combined with medication and counseling.

In a 2021 study published in the journal Andrology, researchers found that the use of a penis pump improved erectile function in men with ED who were unresponsive to ED medication.

The Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2018 found that the use of a penis pump significantly improved erectile function in men with ED.

Another 2018 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine investigated the long-term effectiveness of a VED for the treatment of ED. The study followed men with ED who used a VED for up to 5 years and found that the majority of men experienced improvement in their erectile function over time.

A 2015 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that the use of a penis pump in combination with sildenafil (Viagra) improved erectile function in men with ED who did not respond to sildenafil alone.

Another study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research in 2003 found that the use of a penis pump was effective in achieving and maintaining erections in men with ED who were unresponsive to medication.

Penis Pump Studies on Peyronie's Disease

For Peyronie's disease, a handful of small studies have suggested that the use of a penis pump may be effective in reducing pain and curvature of the penis.

In a 2020 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers found that the use of a vacuum erection device (VED) in combination with penile traction therapy was effective in reducing penile curvature and improving erectile function in men with Peyronie's disease.

Another 2020 study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research found that the use of a penis pump, in combination with low-intensity shockwave therapy, improved the curvature of the penis in men with Peyronie's disease. The study also found improvements in penile pain and sexual function.

In a 2018 study published in Sexual Medicine, researchers found that the use of a penis pump in combination with a traction device was effective in reducing penile curvature and improving sexual function in men with Peyronie's disease.

A 2017 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that the use of a penis pump in combination with intralesional injections of verapamil (a medication used to treat Peyronie's disease) was effective in reducing curvature of the penis and improving erectile function in men with the condition.

In a 2016 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers found that the use of a VED was effective in reducing pain and curvature of the penis in men with Peyronie's disease.

A 2014 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that the use of a VED in combination with intralesional injection of interferon alpha-2b (a medication used to treat Peyronie's disease) was effective in reducing curvature of the penis and improving erectile function in men with the condition.

Individual Penis Pump Research On Penis Enlargement

There are many men around the world who use penis pumps for penis enlargement.

There are no official studies because penis enlargement is taboo and falls into the gray category that shouldn't be talked about.

However, here are a few organizations, groups, forums, and resources you can use that have real men who use penis pumps:

CHAPTER 4

Penis Pumps vs. Other Approaches


In Chapter 4, we'll compare penis pumps to other devices and methods available.

First, you'll learn about the other devices and methods a man can use for penis enlargement and how they measure up to penis pumps.

Then, we'll look at some of the main options men have for the treatment erectile dysfunction and how they compare with penis pumps.

Other Penis Enlargement Devices

Penis enlargement is a common hobby practiced by millions of men across the world.

Besides penis pumps, there are a few different penis enlargement devices that men use to increase the length and girth of their penis such as extenders, hangers and clamps. Each of these devices has pros and cons, and has a different effect on penile growth.

Penis Extenders

Penis extenders are long devices that focus on lengthening the penis through small gradual increases in traction.

A penis extender consists of a plastic ring base that goes around the bottom of your penis and stabilizes the device. The base has two metal rods on both sides extending upward, and a plastic support at the top of the two metal rods that holds the penis head or glans.

The metal rods can be adjusted by adding smaller metal pieces to increase the length, or by telescoping the metal rod outward.

The penis head is wrapped in a silicone sleeve on the plastic support for enhanced stabilization and comfort.

Penis extenders work by applying gentle and consistent traction force to the penis thereby stretching penile tissue, causing micro-tears, and promoting new cell growth.

Penis Hangers

Penis hangers are another lengthening device that involves hanging weights from the top of your penis to stretch penile tissue, create micro-tears, and promote new cell growth.

Penis hangers comprise a hanger head which is a plastic cover and silicone sleeve that wraps around the top of your penis and attaches it to a weight. The user then hangs the weight, ideally while standing up, and allows the natural force of gravity to pull and lengthen their penis.

Penis hangers are one of the most effective penis enlargement devices and methods out there today. Its focus on using gravity for natural elongation, and allowing the weight to freely hang, creates an optimal and effective penis enlargement approach.

Penis Clamping

Penis clamping involves using a clamp around the base of the penis to create increased pressure and tension inside the penile cavity to promote girth and length growth.

Penis clamping targets penis girth growth, and is one of the more controversial and dangerous methods for penis enlargement. Applying high pressures to the penis and also restricting blood flow in and out of the penis is the reason why this practice is polarizing.

Penis Enlargement Exercises

There are also many penis enlargement methods that don't require external devices or products, and that can be done manually using only your hands. The most common manual penis enlargement exercises are jelqing and stretching.

Penis Jelqing

Jelquing refers to performing small pulling motions to the shaft of the penis in an outward direction. The user makes an "OK" grip with his thumb and index finger, and starts at the base of the penis, gently squeezing and pull outward from the base towards the tip. Ideally this is done with a lubricant and can be done multiple times.

The purpose of jelqing is to use the internal blood flow to expand, elongate, and engorge penile tissues to promote new cell growth.

Penis Stretching

Penis stretching is pretty self-explanatory and refers to stretching your penis manually with your hands.

There are many ways to do this. You can pull your penis to elongate it, and hold it in that position for a set period of time. You can pull your penis to stretch it, and then rotate it in different directions to stretch the penis tissue at different angles.

Other Penis Enlargement and Erectile Dysfunction Medical Treatment Options

Penis pumps are one of the best devices and approaches for penis enlargement and erectile dysfunction treatment that is affordable under $50, non-invasive requiring no surgery or procedures, and effective with many users seeing results after just the first session.

In addition to these tried and true devices, there are other options that men can choose such as:

1) Surgery: for penis enlargement doctors can perform surgery by cutting the suspensory ligament inside the penis and stretching the skin and shaft downward. For erectile dysfunction treatment, doctors can add a surgical implant into the penis shaft for rigidity during sexual intercourse.

2) Medication: common medication such as Viagra (sildenafil) and Cialis (tadalafil) can enhance blood flow to the penis to help produce and sustain an erection for sexual intercourse.
