Tip #21: How to Get Started with Pumps and PumpingPosted: May 23, 2012
|Contributor: James Knapp|
There are conflicting ideas out there about whether or not pumping works. You see these ads online and on TV about penis enlargement devises and think to yourself, “that’s ridiculous.” Well, yeah, it does look ridiculous, but the truth is: it does work.
But it should be noted that you can’t expect a miracle. With continuous pumping, over time, your skin will stretch out and that will allow blood flow to the new skin– thus, you will be bigger. The size change varies person to person. If you don’t care about millimeters and centimeters, stop reading, because this isn’t for you. You can ask your doctor about prescribing a compound DHT cream, but again, if you’re not interested in looking forward to a centimeter to half an inch of growth, seek out surgery. If you’re like me, however, and happy with whatever growth in length and girth you can get, you should try pumping.
The good thing about pumping is that you can start any time. It doesn’t matter if you’re on T. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had any lower surgeries. The only difference is the size of the cylinder. If you have had lower surgery, you can probably use a penis pump (however, please wait until you are fully healed!). If you haven’t, you’ll need a nipple pump.
Where to Start
When selecting your pumping apparatus, you need to look for two things: the pump itself, and the cylinders.
The pump should be a hand pump, so that you have at least one hand free. They come in different varieties. costing from $35 to over $100. You really only need a good seal and suction. You can create your own pump with a syringe, some rubber tubing, super glue, and a pot of boiling water. Or you can buy one online.
Do It Yourself
Depending on your size, you can go with or without the tubing. Get a large syringe. Take the needle portion off (or don’t connect it). Drop it in a pot of boiling water for about five minutes. Carefully remove it, and cut the bottom portion off. If necessary, sand the edges off to create a smooth surface. If you can fit the syringe over your dick, you’re good to go– skip towards the “pumping” section.
If the syringe is too small to comfortably fit over your dick and wiggle back and forth without touching its sides, you need to invest in some rubber tubing. You can go to any home improvement store and buy this. Depending on your size, look for 5/8 inch, 3/4 inch, 1
inch, or 1 1/4 inch. You don’t need much tubing, maybe 4-6 inches total, so feel free to buy more than one size and experiment. When you’ve found your size, you can attach it to the syringe with superglue. I’ve found the pot of boiling water very helpful when working with the tubing, as it’s easier to manipulate. Once everything is connected, test the suction power by placing the tube onto an area of skin and pulling back on the plunger. You should be able to take your hands off the apparatus without losing suction. If you can, skip towards the “pumping” section, if not, looks like you’re starting over. Don’t be discouraged. Just like making your own STP devise, this takes patience and practice.
I personally found that it was better (easier) to just invest the money for a quality pump. Please note that you are looking for a nipple pumping kit, not nipple suckers or pl/teasers. If you have not started T yet, look into clitoral pumps. Generally, standard clitoral pumps do not come with cylinders. But if you haven’t started T, you may not be able to fit into the pumps anyway. If you are pre-T and you want to use a pump with cylinders, start with the smallest size– 5/8 inch or smaller.
I use the pump found at the Tool Shed. The pump itself isn’t the best quality, but it creates and holds a good suction and it comes with 3 sizes of cylinders. I’ve listed a few other well-known websites below, but feel free to look on your own. You may be able to find a cheaper version on eBay.
