My Review of the Penomet Penis Pump

Is Penomet Worth It? My Review of the Penomet Penis Pump

As I’ve said time and time again, a penis pump is not a magic bullet solution to having a small penis. Whether you’re going for the BathMate or the Penomet, penis enlargement is a lifestyle change that requires regular penis pumping sessions in order to maintain the results. Yes, you may be able to grow your penis by 1-2 inches over time, but if you want to retain this size, you need to keep on top of your routine.

Penis enlargement is basically like going to the gym – if you don’t keep up with your “Penomet exercise routine” then you’ll lose the size, just like you lose your muscles if you stop going to the gym.

Nonetheless, I can definitely recommend the Penomet penis pump! It’s a great way for guys to increase their penis size without getting surgery or taking dodgy penis enlargement pills which are not scientifically proven to have any significant results. Some water, pressure, and 15 minutes of Penomet pumping are all that you really need. I hope you enjoy my Penomet review!

I want to take a quick look at other Penomet pump users’ experiences before getting into my own.

Joe from Pedigest
“The first time I tried the Penomet pump I was SHOCKED because my cock looked HUGE! In 7 months, I gained exactly 2 inches. If you follow this routine then it may take a while but you can expect to gain 1-3 inches within 6 months. You just need to stay committed and follow the plan.”

Jerome from Penomet Before and After
“My girlfriend purchased the Penomet pump for me after hearing me complain countless times about my smaller than usual penis size. She knew that I was too embarrassed to make the purchase on my own, but she helped me out and supported me with the use of the pump. Now I love my penis and have experienced a growth of 2.4 inches and an increased girth of 1.2 inches. Incredible.”

Matt from Buffedd
“The company claims that you will have a length increase of 1 to three 3 inches. So far I have seen an increase of slightly less than half of company’s magic number.To be precise, I have only seen an increase by 1.35 inches and some girth as well. Honestly speaking, this is not a bad figure; so far so good. A length increase by 1.35 in a few weeks is not a simple feat to achieve.”

Greg from Cera Online
“Penomet is the first penis pump that I purchased and I will stick to it. I measured the size of the penis before I started and then measured it again after one week. I now use it about 60 minutes a day and I am comfortable using it. I can control the pressure and there is no bruising or discomfort.”

The official Matters Of Size Penomet Penis Pump forum is a great forum where Penomet pump users talk about subjects like the best Penomet gaiters and overcoming Peyronie's Disease.

How Does Penomet Work?

How Does Penomet Work

Before you do anything, you need to measure your penis. Take a soft tape measure like this one from Amazon and use it to measure your penis from the base to the tip of the head (the length) and around the middle of the cock (the girth). I’d suggest taking both erect and flaccid measurements for the best results. After all, some of us are growers and some are showers!

The steps below are the steps that I personally used on a regular basis. They’re similar to the steps recommended by Penomet and many other reviewers.

Please note that you should NOT penis pump every day – I was very careful to never pump for more than 3 days in a row during the course of this review. Over a week, I’d pump 5 days and have 2 days off. It's the same principle as going to the gym – you need time to rest and recover.

1. Get in your shower or bath

The Penomet pump uses water to apply equal pressure all over the penis, so it’s easiest to use it in the bath or shower. Keep the water at around 30-40 degrees Celsius (86-104 degrees Fahrenheit) unless you fancy a trip to the hospital.

2. Get jelqing!

Get your penis warmed up with some jelqing! “Jelqing” is a penis growth exercise that is recommended to be performed in combination with penis pumps. There are many YouTube videos like this one showing you how to jelq. Personally, I’d warm up with 40-60 jelqs before pumping.

3. Fill up the cylinder

Get the cylinder and fill it up with water completely. This is easiest to do in the bath because you can just submerge the Penomet in the bathwater.

4. Place your boner inside the pump

Trying not to touch the sides of the cylinder, put your (erect or semi-erect) penis inside the Penomet pump. Try to keep as much water inside as possible – some will probably spill out if you’re doing it in the shower.

5. Ramp up the pressure

Pull the pump toward your groin, increasing the pressure on your penis slowly and carefully. Depending on which package you ordered, you might have different gaiters to try with your Penomet. Each gaiter provides a different level of pressure, but the purple gaiter (Force 60) is usually recommended for beginners.

6. Keep it on for 15 minutes

Penomet recommends that you leave the pump on for 15-20 minutes for each session. You might want to release the vacuum pressure with the valve and take short breaks to relax over this time period – you’re putting your cock under a lot of pressure so be careful not to overdo it.

7. Voila!

Once you’re done, make sure that you use the release valve to drop the pressure and safely remove the Penomet from your Johnson. 

As you progress on your Penomet journey, you might want to change the pumping time and jelq reps to match your own personal needs. As long as you’re safe and not experiencing pain, do what works for you!

My Penomet Results

My Penomet Results

First of all, I just need to clarify the difference between permanent Penomet results and temporary Penomet results.

Temporary Penoment results

After using a Penomet pump (or pretty much any penis pump) you’ll notice that you have some temporary gains which last for around 12 hours. Personally, I found that I could gain up to 1 inch in length for about 12 hours after pumping. This is simply due to your penis “swelling up” after a session. However, this is handy if you’re planning on having sex within 12 hours and you want that extra bit of size!

Permanent Penomet results

To be clear, penis pump results are never “permanent” in the sense that they last forever. They WILL last if you continue your penis enlargement routine and keep pumping/jelqing regularly, but if you stop, then the gains will slowly disappear over time.

With that said, after 3 months of following the Penomet routine mentioned before…

Length-wise I’ve gone from 6.2 inches (erect) to 7.1 inches (erect).

Girth-wise, I’ve gone from 5.7 inches (erect) to around 6.5 inches (erect).

That means that in 3 months I’ve gained 0.9 inches in length and 0.8 inches in girth.

While those might not be the Anaconda results that some guys are looking for, I’m personally very happy with these results! I’ve gained nearly an inch in both length and girth, so that’s pretty decent! I wasn’t particularly small to start off with, but now I’m unstoppable!

I’m also a big fan of the temporary gains you can make within that 12-hour window – very handy if you’re planning on having sex that night or if you just feel like a temporary confidence boost! Not only is your cock temporarily bigger, but it also gets that swollen, veiny look that you get on some realistic dildos.

As well as penis growth, penis pumps like the Penomet are often used by men with ED to help them achieve and maintain erections.

Now that I’ve done the Penomet review, I’m probably going to stop using the pump. It’s just a lot of stuff to remember (all that jelqing and pumping takes a long time!) and I’m not particularly self-conscious about my penis size. However, I’d definitely recommend it for men who want to get bigger, stronger erections.

Penomet Tips and Tricks

Penomet Tips and Tricks

Pumping your penis regularly can take its toll on your mental and physical health, so here are some of my top tips for using the Penomet pump and other similar water-based penis pumps.

Try different Penomet gaiters

Penomet does 5 different gaiters for your penis, ranging from the Purple (Force 60) to the Red (Force 80). As you progress on your penis growth journey, you should consider slowly upping the “force” of the vacuum for the gaiter that you’re using. The higher the force number, the more pressure that the gaiter applies to your penis when pumping.

It’s difficult to find Penomet gaiters for sale on their own and not as part of a premium package deal. I’m sure they’re out there somewhere, but my half-arsed googling has been unsuccessful.

Jelq! Jelq! Jelq!

It’s hard to read anything about penis pumping without running into jelqing at some point. This easy exercise basically involves making a ring with your thumb and index finger and then using it to massage your cock and encourage growth. This (NSFW!) YouTube video shows you how to jelq properly.

Keep it smooth down there

If you’re got a lot of pubes, it’s gonna be harder for the Penomet to sit flush against the skin at the base of your cock. Shaving your pubes and keeping them short helps you to achieve better suction with the pump. Shaving your pubes also helps to make your penis look bigger anyway, so there’s another reason to shave ‘em off.

Personally, I prefer having mid-length pubic hair, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Measure once every 1-2 weeks

Your penis size is likely to fluctuate from day to day, so it’s best to take a single measurement once every 1-2 weeks in order to track the general trend of your growth over time. Don’t measure every day – it’s easy to get obsessed and disheartened by the results if you measure too often.

Fluid retention problems

If you’re pumping with the Penomet and you suddenly feel like you’re losing your erection even though your cock is hard, you may be experiencing fluid retention. Fluid retention makes the base of your cock (where the cylinder is touching your body) swell up, giving you a raised donut shape at the base of your dick. Not massively sexy. It’s due to the pressure caused by the vacuum of the pump.

Use it in the bath

Most people have showers, which is fair enough. Showers are quick and convenient. However, if you have time, consider using the Penomet in the bathtub. You’re able to submerge the chamber in the water entirely, so none falls out when you place it on your cock. The more water in the cylinder, the greater the pressure on your cock! This creates the vacuum suction necessary for growth.

I hope you enjoyed this Penomet review!

Just to remind you, in 3 months I’ve gained 0.9 inches in length and 0.8 inches in girth, so I’m pretty happy, to say the least. The only thing I’d say about the Penomet pump is that it’s very similar to the Bathmate penis pump and the Penomet tends to be a little more expensive than the Bathmate. Either way, you’re getting a really decent product that can improve your confidence ten-fold!
