Male enhancement pumps are your ticket to instant cock growth and a surefire way of helping you maintain a strong, prolonged erection regardless of whether you use it to build yourself up for sex or for solo play.

Penis pumps can give you a stronger, bigger cock for more satisfying sex or gratifying masturbation and we're here to explain the hows and whys.

How Do Penis Pumps Work?

When the airtight cylinder is placed over the shaft of your penis it increases blood flow into the tissues that give you a strong erection. As the blood flow to the shaft and head of your penis is increased, the erectile tissue expands to accommodate the influx of blood, which means a more hefty erection for you.

Squeezing the hand pump attached to the cylinder of your penis pump increases the suction in the tube, gradually increasing the blood flow to your penis. You have total control over the frequency of pumps and the pressure applied to your penis.

Like most things, if you want a more substantial erection that lasts longer than just one pumping session, you have to work at it over time. The tissue in your penis will respond to regular pumping, so how big and strong your erections become depends on how much time you have to spare.

Penis pumps are excellent for increasing the size of your cock and strength of your erection, either temporarily or over time if you regularly work at it. After using a pump, most men see and feel an increase in the girth of their penis more so than the length.

Penis pumps are safe to use, but you will put yourself at risk if you do not follow the instructions, limit yourself to short sessions to begin with and make sure that you are not applying too much pressure to your penis.

What Are Penis Pumps For?

Men use penis pumps for tons of reasons, not just for making their cocks bigger. Because of the airtight vacuum, penis pumps provide a thrilling blow-job effect for men who crave the 'sucking' feeling provided by a lover's mouth.

Those of you who suffer from erectile dysfunction should use a penis pump to maintain and strengthen erections without resorting to drugs such as Viagra. Some of you may have diabetes or poor blood circulation, which reduces blood circulation to your penis, resulting in weak or short-lived erections.

Either way, you will benefit from using a penis pump to increase the size and duration of your erection for successful sex or masturbation.

Penis pumps can also be used as a form of foreplay. Try using your pump as a precursor to your lover giving you head and vice versa. The effects of blood being pumped into your penis or your lover's clit will make the area more sensitive to every touch and lick.

You can also use a penis pump to enlarge your lover's nipples or clit, taking care when applying pressure and the speed of the pump action.

Choose The Right Penis Pump

Don't just rush out and slap on the first penis pump you come across. Your penis pump should be tailored towards your needs and what you expect to gain from using it.
