Penis Pumps

We are proud to offer a variety of premium pumps for all your needs! They are safe, easy to use, and a great addition to your sex life!

We also carry several devices that work as a masturbator as well as a pump which can add even more pleasure to the experience.

Pumping is often advertised as a way to increase the size of your penis, but in fact they are primarily used for treatment of erectile dysfunction and can heighten sexual satisfaction in people who have experienced a change in penile function, regardless of the cause.

Pumps are also generally safe to use in combination with other treatments such as oral medication, injections, or suppositories but are effective enough to stimulate and maintain erections all by themselves!

Penis pumps, also referred to as “vacuum constriction devices” work by suctioning the penis – increasing blood flow to the member and stimulating an erection.

Penis Pumps

The Basic “How To” of Pumping:

  1. Apply a good quality personal lubricant to your penis and the opening of the pump sleeve.
  2. Insert your penis into the pump cylinder.
  3. Depending on the style of device you are using, pump until you feel a comfortable amount of suction (hand pumps are usually easiest for first-time users).
  4. Hold, release, and repeat until you feel the desired effect.
  5. Slip a constriction ring (cock ring) onto the base of your penis to keep the erection if you are wanting to maintain the erection.


  • If using a constriction ring, place it over the opening of the pump cylinder so you can roll it onto the base of your penis quickly and with greater ease.
  • Pump slowly and in small increments to avoid injury.
  • Consult a Susan James associate about operating your pump safely.

Did you know?

  • Frequent erections help keep your penis healthy. Just like other parts of your body, oxygenation of tissue is achieved through adequate blood flow. Just like exercise helps keep muscles oxygenated, erections help keep the penis in good health, regardless of if the erection ends in ejaculation or not.
  • If you have a penis, you probably experience about 3-5 erections a night – whether you know it or not! Nocturnal penile tumescence (spontaneous nighttime erections) mainly occurs during the REM stage of sleep. These involuntary erections are believed to be your body’s way of keeping penile tissue healthy!
  • Nocturnal penile tumescence can help differentiate whether the cause of ED is psychological or physiological. People who may be feeling “pressure to perform” or other anxieties that prevent them from getting erect will still have spontaneous erections. An NPTR monitor can help detect whether you’re still having them while you sleep!
  • Using a pump is a great way to achieve an erection without the systemic effects of oral medications. 

Frequently Asked Questions:

“Aren’t they only for old people?”

Nope! Many young people experiencing erectile dysfunction use pumping as a way to have a more pleasurable and fulfilling sex life. Whether the cause of their ED is physiological or psychological, a large number of pump users are in their 20s, 30s, and 40s.

Additionally, people who don’t regularly experience erectile dysfunction also enjoy incorporating pumping into their sexual experiences.

“Don’t they cause irreparable damage to your penis?”

While aggressive or excessive pumping can cause pain and tissue damage, proper use of standard pumps are safe enough for daily use! If you have concerns, have recently undergone surgery or are currently being treated for erectile dysfunction, consult your doctor to ensure pumping is a suitable option for you.

“Will it actually make me bigger?”

Maybe! If you often suffer from erectile dysfunction (usually of physiological origin), you may also begin to experience fibrosis of the corpora cavernosa (erectile tissue atrophy), which in turn makes penile vessels less elastic and causes shrinking of the member. Pumping can help restore healthy blood flow and condition to your erectile tissues, which in turn can increase the size of your penis!
