Two problems that preoccupy men more than others in the sexual sphere are the lack of a stable erection and the insufficient length of the penis. Experts have developed a device that can improve both points at once - the male vacuum pump. These products quickly became popular, so there were a lot of positive reviews about them. But there are still a large number of questions, so this article contains everything you need to know about the topic.

What is a device?

The vacuum pump or vacuum erector was invented by the American G. Osborne in 1960. The function that, according to the author's idea, this device is supposed to perform is to relieve sexual tension and restore functioning. sexual activity after prostate surgery.

In the first decades, the pump was not widely distributed, but over time it gained many admirers. The device consists of a transparent cylindrical vessel, which has one entrance, but the outlet is completely sealed. There is a small hole in the back of the entrance. Most models have an information tube attached to it, through which the air is pumped out. That is, a vacuum erection machine is basically a regular penis pump. Depending on the modification, it can be supplemented with a pear, batteries, a pistol pump, a pressure gauge, etc. v.

Another part of this device is the air valve. Through it, you can quickly equalize the pressure inside the tank with the barometric indicator, if you suddenly feel uncomfortable. For convenience and normal fit in the groin, there is a special seal placed on the inlet, in contact with the skin. The seal material is chosen so that it is comfortable, not cold and not allergic.

How it works

The air is gradually released from the vessel, as a result of which the pressure decreases in the internal space - a vacuum is created. Thanks to this, the penis begins to keep the correct shape, which is accompanied by an erection. During this period, an effect is on the reflex points and nerve endings, which are abundant on the mucous membrane of the penis, so the penis becomes quickly enough compared to a normal erection.

After creating a vacuum, the following will occur:

  • In the groin area, the blood flow rate increases. In fact, it feels like heat in the lower abdomen and groin.
  • The cavernous bodies inside the penis are filled with blood. Studies have shown that the blood saturation of the penis under vacuum conditions is doubled compared to during a normal erection.
  • The oxygen supply increases, which has a positive effect on the condition of all tissues of the genital organs.


The most important question before buying a vacuum erector is what will give a man using it.

The main functions of the device:

  • increase the size of the penis by a few centimeters;
  • more persistent erection;
  • achieve sexual satisfaction;
  • prolong intercourse if you use the device before having sex;
  • eliminate blood stagnation in the capillaries of the genital organs;
  • prevent premature ejaculation when using a vacuum erection device before sex;
  • alignment of the penis, if it is curved due to the different filling of the cavernous bodies with blood on the right and left side;
  • Preventing a decrease in sex drive with age or without a partner for a long time.

An increase in male size and an increase in the quality of an erection appears only with regular and prolonged use. It's not worth waiting for the results after several tries.

Important!Magnets are not a cure, but a preventive medicine. Genital weakness is not always related to problems that are resolved by using a pump.

Side Effects

Side effects can occur if the device is used improperly or the person has contraindications that he does not take into account.

Unpleasant consequences can be as follows:

  • the appearance of dark areas on the mucous membranes due to damage to the blood capillaries;
  • dryness and numbness of the surface of the penis;
  • cracks in the mucosal layer;
  • with hematoma - painful sensations;
  • swelling of soft tissues due to micro trauma.

In addition, if you abuse the vacuum erection, you may experience a decrease in libido.


Before turning to this technique, you should make sure that the man does not have any contraindications:

  • diseases of the cardiovascular system;
  • blood clotting disorders;
  • atherosclerosis;
  • Phlebeurysm;
  • benign or malignant tumors in the groin or pelvic organs;
  • urinary tract infections;
  • venereal pathology;
  • penile trauma;
  • dermatological diseases in the genital area or near them;
  • Autoimmune disorders;
  • mental illness.

Pain while using the pump is also considered a contraindication. Men over 65 should be careful with this method.

How to use the pump properly?

There are several pumping techniques. Their choice depends on the goal that the man pursues. Currently, two methods are recommended: classical and encapsulated.


Those who want to increase not only the length but also the diameter of the penis pay attention to it. Devices with wide vessels are suitable for this. This design allows the penis to expand in all directions. The diameter grows due to the maximum amount of blood filling in the penis.


The packaging is suitable to increase the length and correct the shape of the penis. The name of this technique is derived from the English word "pack". The vase in this case will be long, but narrower. During an erection, the penis will lengthen, but the diameter will limit the space inside the condom.

When packing, it is especially important that the penis be lubricated with any kind of lubricant before starting the session.

terms of use

To make things as easy and efficient as possible, you should adhere to the following rules:

  • The first step is to read the detailed instructions. There may be features in the model that are not taken into account in the general rules.
  • Prepare the vacuum pump before use. The flask is removed and washed with warm soapy water, then rinsed thoroughly with a large stream of water. For disinfection, the internal volume is treated with cotton wool soaked in miramistin, alcohol or chlorhexidine, if the man is not allergic to these agents. Sterilization by boiling cannot be done, as the flask may crack or deform in hot water.
  • The penis is lubricated with cream for penis enlargement or stimulation. This helps provide warmth and comfort.
  • A water-based lubricant is applied to the sealant and to the skin area where the pump is applied so that the device fits snugly even in the area of hair growth. It is not recommended to lubricate these places with oils or creams not intended for this, as they will quickly destroy the structure of the gasket.
  • The penis is placed inside the device, after which it is pressed tightly against the groin. Then you need to turn the vacuum erector a few centimeters to the right and left to evenly distribute the lubricant in the contact area.
  • Air pumping starts. For 15-20 seconds, the pressure is released, and then, by pressing the relief valve, the air is returned. The initial joint session should not exceed 5 minutes. If the device is used periodically for a period of several days, the vacuum interval is gradually increased to 20, 30 and then to 40 seconds. The total exposure time also became longer and reached 20 minutes.
  • After use, the product is washed again. The removable nozzles are removed and washed separately. Until the next session, they are stored removable. If these parts are made of cyber silicone, they must be dry cleaned and treated with talcum powder before storing.

During the washing process, take care that liquid does not enter the battery compartment if the automatic model has a sterilized battery.

Safety requirements

Men who received negative results often admitted that they did not follow safety rules when using the pump. This can lead to significant harm to the health of the penis and the whole body.

Manufacturers recommend paying attention to the following points:

  • If pain or discomfort occurs, end the session immediately and try to find the cause.
  • The presence of blood in the flask is a very dangerous sign. It is strictly forbidden to repeat the procedure before the wound has completely healed and the mucosa has recovered.
  • The process needs to take place calmly, not in a hurry but suddenly act. First you need to check the minimum vacuum, gradually increasing. The sudden increase in pressure can rupture the mucous membranes.
  • The comfortable vacuum level is determined individually. You should not be guided by the judgments of others.
  • Do not create too strong a vacuum, because prolonged cessation of blood circulation will lead to the death of some cells. This will only aggravate existing problems. Such damage may not be repairable.
  • Pumping time should not exceed 20 minutes, because too heavy can cause accidents.
  • Treatments that are too frequent will not be beneficial.
  • Under no circumstances should the testicles enter the flask. To prevent this, it is necessary to accurately determine the diameter of the bulb.

NOTE!Use should be purposeful and reasonable, without going beyond what is reasonable, then there should be no problems. A man should remember that with natural intercourse too strong a vacuum is excluded, so creating it artificially in most cases leads to consequences.


There are several types of vacuum erectors. They differ in specification and design features:

  • Instructions for use with pears. . . During pear pressing, air is pumped out. A relief valve is located at the base to help return pressure to normal. This design is considered the simplest. It is easy to operate and is perfect for those who decide to buy such a device for the first time.
  • Instructions for use with the pump. . . The pump is very small and can be easily operated with one hand. Sometimes it is given an interesting design, such as the shape of a pistol. The vacuum relief valve may be located on the vessel so that the valve can be closed with a finger or on a plastic part. The pump can suck air out of the flask's workspace faster than a pear.
  • Automatic.It has a compartment for rechargeable batteries, so pumping is done automatically, with no effort required by the man. You can just focus on adjusting the air release. The cost of automatic model is higher than manual model.
  • Hydropump. . . The penis is massaged with water, which is filled into the internal space of the device. In this case, not air is pumped out, but liquid. To use, the structure is completely immersed in water, so it is most convenient to do this in the bathroom. Use in other rooms may cause other problems. No lubrication is required in this case.
  • Penis pump. . . A small design in which only the tip fits the flask. Since on this part of the organ there are a large number of sensitive points and nerve endings, this change is quite effective. Another advantage is compactness.

A man can assess his interests and decide which categories to focus on.

How to choose the right pump size?

First of all, when choosing, you need to pay attention to the size of the cylinder. Buying a device that is too small is an annoying mistake that cannot be ignored.

Predefined length and width to compare with cylinder characteristics:

  1. The length should not be less than the size of the penis in an erect state, plus 5 cm or more. For overweight men, you need to add a few centimeters more.
  2. To determine the diameter, you need to measure the circumference of the penis in an erect state, divide this number by π (equals 3. 14) and add 2-3 cm. The resulting number will be a guide to the diameter specified in the product description.

If pumping is done by the packing method, then the circle is simply divided by the number π and nothing else is added.

Additional factors

Some models have additional elements. These upgrades include a scale printed on the cylinder. Thanks to her, a man can easily determine how much progress has been made in increasing length thanks to the device.

Another factor is the pressure gauge. It can be used to measure how comfortable vacuuming is and quickly return to it next time.

Some breeds are equipped with a proboscis ring to help prolong the erection time. There are additional structures inside the cylinder that give surface roughness, spiked structures, etc. v. for a crunchy feel. In addition, some models have a vibration mode, which adds to the efficiency.

Where can I buy

There are two ways to purchase a vacuum erection device: in an online store or in a sex fixer. You can inquire about the presence of a certificate, which indicates all the specifications. The seller must advise on all matters arising in the selection.

Cost depends on material, manufacturer, availability of additional structural parts.
