Week 3 - Goodbye to the Bathmate Ache! - Bathmate Penis Pump Long Term Review


After 3 weeks of using the Bathmate Hydromax X40, I continue to be impressed with the product and the effects it has on my body.

This week’s regime was:

Sunday – day off
Monday – bath (full 20 minutes)
Tuesday to Thursday – shower (approx 10-15 mins each morning)
Friday – bath
Saturday – shower

I mentioned at the start of the blog that there had been a persistent ache at the base of my penis. Well, it has taken a while, but this has now gone completely – it really did feel like an exercised muscle ache.

I think I have finally cracked using the Bathmate in the shower. I have noticed that some air gets trapped between the comfort pad insert and the bellows, so I now remove the comfort pad before filling and then replace it before pumping.

It is more difficult to maintain the seal in the shower, so for the first pumps, it is best to release the pump slowly while keeping the device pressed against your body as hard as you can. If you want to increase pressure later in the session, shorter quick pumps seem to work better, otherwise air can be drawn back in.

To get the strongest workout, it helps to release the vacuum and refill two or three times in the session – this is certainly the way to get maximum penis size in the tube.

As far as “progress” with the device is concerned, there continue to be undoubted changes to my penis – but we should really classify these into “just after use” and “12 hours later”.

While pumping, I can hit the 20cm (7.9”) mark on the tube and I was amazed to find that the girth of my penis immediately after using the Bathmate is now regularly 18cm (7.1”) and two hours later I was still able to achieve an erection girth of 17cm.

Having seen these sizes in the morning, I was a little surprised to find that it seemed that my girth was back to 16cm (6.2”) in the evening, but my erection length is now easily hitting 20cm.

Again, I have to emphasise that the major change I have noticed is in the strength and rigidity of my erections – there’s no point in having a bigger penis that doesn’t work and the Bathmate seems to be an effective daily exercise.
