It's Gonna Pump... You Up

This is a sturdy, long lasting toy that gives you the option of following a serious (size-increasing) regimen or using it recreationally. Absolutely worth the cost.
feels great, fairly quiet, size increase, worth the cost, release valve, pressure gauge
not silent, expensive

useful review
A couple of years ago I lucked into a Dr. Joel Kaplan Penis Pump|Dr Joel's penis pump. It was the display model with a steep discount, and I was a poor college student moonlighting as a sex toy aficionado at a local sex toy store.

I was so excited at my new purchase I tried it on in the employee bathroom. Not the brightest idea I've ever had, but it felt great. That first time I couldn't handle much suction, and I was really sensitive afterward, but it felt so good I was sure I'd adjust to the suction and sensitivity.

Over the course of a few months I got in the habit of using my Kaplan pump at least once a week so I could really adjust to it. The benefits were great. My girlfriend noticed a size difference|Pump's Effect on Penis Size if I had pumped within a day or so (mostly girth), I could last longer in intercourse, and (possibly most importantly) I felt more confident about my penis. My male co-workers were jealous enough to start roughing up the new display model in the hopes of needing to replace it and buy the less-pretty one.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm too lazy to follow Dr. Kaplan's recommendations|Dr Joel Kaplan Technique for increasing your penis size. He recommends a regimen of at least two ten-minute pump cycles at least three days a week. I just don't have that kind of time. I managed it for a couple of weeks at a few different points and did seem to be a little bigger after that time, but as I haven't kept that pace I don't really know the centimeters it has given me over time.

It is, however, my favorite of all my solo sex toys|Men-oriented sex toys for a few reasons. The suction doesn't feel like, nor does it attempt to recreate, a blowjob, but that will definitely be on your mind using this toy. Pulling some on the cylinder lets you change the suction slightly without losing the seal, which is a lot of fun if you're into edging or want to train yourself to stay hard longer during sex. And really, the feeling that masturbating will (if anything) make you a little bigger for your next partner session, makes you feel productive while you're otherwise enjoying yourself quite a lot.

Cleaning and care is easy as all the parts are hard plastic. The valve connector from cylinder to tube keeps the tube clean, so rinsing with a little soap for water- or silicone-based lube is enough to keep it clean. If the cylinder starts looking grimy it's probably just soap scum, clean it with a little vinegar or bleach and that'll go away.
I have, on occasion, caused myself a little pain with this toy. Keeping an eye on the pressure gauge and the clock are important! Pumping|Pumping Technique for too long or on too high a vacuum can cause, and has caused for me, bruising or a blood blister. In general taking a couple of days off from pumping|Guide to Penis Pumps to heal up lets you go right back to using it. Remember, it is NEVER supposed to hurt.

  • Great review! I consider the pump for myself. Would you tell if pumping gives you any pleasure. Can you come when pumping? Or this is simply the exercise to get cock bigger?
  • Cock Wrangler
    If nothing else, the fact that you've had it for years attests to its durability and good function. Nice review!
  • Francis Gray
    I do pump for pleasure and absolutely can (and often do) come while pumping. It's a ton of fun for edging- pump till you nearly come, then let yourself move away from orgasm for a while, then do it again, eventually letting yourself come.

    A word to the wise, if you use the same toy all the time when you come you'll train yourself to it a bit, so if you don't want that switch it up a little (come with your hand, a different toy, another person, whatever).

    Also if you're trying to use it to increase your size I have heard that coming in the machine will produce less of a result since when you come your body re-routes your blood back to normal (or, as my ladyfriend would say, my brain).

    Did you notice a long term difference? My husbands only experiences temporary changes that fade after an hour...
  • Francis Gray
    Sleeping Dreamer, I've noticed a small but nice long-term difference after I've used it as Dr Joel recommends for a while. I know a few guys who have had significant difference by using it at least 3 times per week for at least 20 minutes per session, usually more frequently and/or longer time. [Unfortunately] I don't have that kind of dedication most of the time.

    The idea behind it is that dramatic temporary changes fade, but over time the increased bloodflow to the corpus collosum and stretching of the ligaments provides a somewhat longer and more girthy erection.

    It's been a year since your last comment, and really what I'd like to know is how durable this pump has been for you? Whether you've had any changes in experience or would now recomnend a new pump?
  • Viktor Vysheslav Malkin
