First: What Is a Penis Pump?

A penis pump, also known as vacuum therapy, is an ED solution that produces immediate and firm results often not achievable through other treatment options. This means a vacuum pump for ED can work when medications can’t.

The pump involves the use of an acrylic tube, a vacuum suction pump, and tension “rings” to hold an erection in place.

A penis pump is the ED treatment of choice for a growing number of men, for many reasons. Vacuum therapy devices are 100% natural, drug-free, and FDA-certified. In addition, with a penis pump, results are immediate and there is no downtime waiting for medications to kick in.

With the penis pump, one end of an acrylic cylinder attaches to a pump, while the other end fits over the top of the penis. The cylinder and pump create a vacuum suction that draws blood into the penis, creating an erection. Once the erection is achieved, the vacuum is turned off, and an elastic “constriction” ring is slid off the cylinder and onto the base of the penis. This holds the erection in place so you can have sex.

How Do I Use One?

Most penis pumps come with several components, including the loading cone, tension ring, bushing, pump head, and penile tube. The first step is to put these pieces together.

To begin, attach the pump head to one end of the penile tube. On the other end of the tube, place the loading cone. Then lubricate the cone and slip the tension ring over the top of the cone and onto the cylinder.

The second step is to replace the loading cone with the bushing, which provides a cushioning between the penis and the body.

The third step is to then lubricate the bushing and place the plastic tube over your penis. The bushing provides comfort and creates a tight seal so the vacuum pressure can take hold. 

At this point, the fourth step is to start the pumping function to create a vacuum inside the tube and begin pulling blood into the penis. Penis pumps are either manually or battery operated. Both types are effective, and either may be preferred, depending on the user. The vacuum pressure produced simulates the suction of sexual intercourse and creates an erection.

Once you have an erection, the fifth step is to slide the tension ring off the end of the tube and onto the penis. This ring holds the erection in place by keeping the blood in the penis. At this point, you can remove the vacuum device and have sex.

When you’re finished with intercourse, the final step is to remove the tension ring. Normal blood flow will resume and the erection will subside.

Most men find these steps easy to follow, and with practice and repetition, the use of the penis pump only gets more natural and more enjoyable.

Why Is a Penis Pump Better Than Medications?

One of the reasons men are trying vacuum therapy is because medications are not always effective, and they are not advised for everyone.

Sources say drugs like Viagra work similarly to nitrates. Based on this, the medications should not be taken by men who take nitrates for heart disease or who have other heart conditions.

Another roadblock occurs if your arteries are too narrow. When you have an erection, blood flows quickly through your arteries to your penis, increasing its length, width, and firmness. Blood then flows out through your veins. If arteries are too narrow, medications may not be strong enough to improve and maintain the blood flow.

Another issue reported by one source is that men make mistakes when medicating. In one study, 69% of men who reported ongoing ED problems even after taking drugs like Viagra or Cialis were making errors in how they used the medications.

Some of the mistakes that are common when using ED medications sound simple, but they can affect how you feel about using them in the future.

Overlooking their mood.

It’s important to remember that ED medications do not work unless your body becomes aroused.

Not taking enough.

Many men take the lowest dose of medications, which may not be enough to address ED.

Eating first.

It can be tempting to have a big dinner and then seek out “dessert,” but ED medications work best when taken at least two or three hours after a full meal.

Rushing things.

Another mistake is not waiting long enough for the pill to take effect. Depending on the brand, it can take one to three hours for ED meds to kick in.

Sticking with it.

ED pills may not work on the first try. Experts recommend trying each dose at least twice. 

Because of these mentioned limitations of ED medications, many men are now turning to vacuum therapy.

How to Use a Penis Pump to Start Having Great Sex Again

Once you know how it works, these tips can help ensure you use the pump with confidence.

First, relax and be open.

The first thing to keep in mind when it comes to how to use a penis pump is to be receptive to the device. Penis pumps have been used for decades to safely and effectively replicate what the male body goes through when it is aroused. In addition, vacuum therapy is proven effective in over 90% of clinical trials. While the process may seem foreign and even clinical at first, it’s important to keep an open mind about penis pumps and what they can do to create a firm and satisfying erection.

Invest in a quality pump.

The next step is to research and purchase a quality vacuum therapy device. Many penis pumps are sold as “adult toys,” are made with low-quality materials, and are designed for novelty or fun. Vacuum therapy pumps for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, however, are high-quality, medical grade devices available only from reputable companies such as Rejoyn Medical Systems. Take the time to shop around, and look for a quality device from a source that has a money-back guarantee, a discreet shipping policy, and trustworthy client testimonials.

Also, be sure to look for safety. Experts indicate another feature to look for is a “quick release” to prevent penile injury. The quality pumps sold here have both internal and external safety release valves. The internal release activates if the vacuum creates too much pressure, and the external release can be activated by the user at any time.

Go at it alone.

Once you have your penis pump, take the time to familiarize yourself with how it works before you involve your partner. Practice assembling and disassembling it, and placing it on your penis. Use the device several times on your own before introducing it into the bedroom. This will help you “keep your cool” when you use it with your partner and help you use the device with minimal interruption. It will also give you an idea of what to expect in terms of sensation and orgasm.

Keep communicating.

Finally, when it comes to how to use a penis pump to help with ED, it’s imperative to keep the lines of communication open with your partner. Your partner may be having their own issues surrounding ED – lack of confidence, insecurity, or feeling like they’re not desired. Talking about the solution of vacuum therapy will help reassure your partner of your interest and desire to be intimate and connect. You may find that the enhanced communication and experience of trying a penis pump together actually make your relationship better.

Clean and care for it.

Finally, to ensure the safe and effective use of the penis pump, you need to keep it in working order. It should be used with proper lubrication. In addition, it should be cleaned between uses with warm water and mild soap, and stored with care. Learn more here.

How to Make Sex Even Hotter

A penis pump automatically improves your sex life in that it simply makes sex possible. You no longer have to worry about whether you can get it up – and keep it up – for the duration of intercourse. A penis pump eliminates the guesswork. It can also open doors for even greater interaction. Here are more ways to add excitement with the pump.

Involve your partner.

First, remember that a penis pump doesn’t have to be something sterile that you do on your own. Your partner can be involved in placing the penile tube and applying the lubricant. It can be empowering for them to play with the tool and make the experience erotic.

Experiment. 

There is also fun to be had with the penis ring that is attached to the base of the penis holding the erection in place. These come in a variety of sizes and materials, and there are also ones that vibrate or provide clitoral stimulation. This shows your partner that the device is not just for you – it’s an investment in excitement and passion for both of you.

Be confident. 

Think of the penis pump as a way to be the man in bed you’ve always been. You have likely been successful in the love-making department. Now, with a penis pump, you can continue to have the moves. “Own” the solution and the treat the pump as an extension of your manhood. Confidence is always sexy, and your partner will take your lead when it comes to welcoming the penis pump into your lives.

Open your mind. 

Another way to make sex with a penis pump even hotter is to have a more holistic view of sex. Remember that making love does not have to mean intercourse and penetration. It is also every bit about the intimacy and connection you share with your partner. Look for other ways of spicing up your sex life. Take a trip together, explore other means of touching and playing, or just hold hands again. This can keep your connection strong as you explore solutions, and when you are ready for action, your relationship will be better than ever.

Using a penis pump is an effective, safe, and non-prescription way to treat erectile dysfunction and make sex better than ever. It can also be a go-to solution when popping a pill isn’t the answer.
