The Bathmate is one of the leading penis pumps available today. Part of its appeal is in its ease of use and definite effectiveness. As has been shown in multiple personal accounts, the Bathmate delivers on its promise, providing noticeable improvements in penile width, length, and strength with little daily use. Many owners happily continue using the Bathmate for months and years, finding that it provides additional benefits the longer it is used.
In fact, the blog you just landed on is devoted to testing this. I purchase male enhancement products with my own money and put them to the test. So far, the Bathmate has been the center of my focus, and I am happy to report that the best results come after 6-9 months of consistent use.
In my experience, The Bathmate with regular use, provides the following benefits:
- Increased penile girth
- Increased penile length
- More powerful orgasms
- Improved stamina
- Stronger erections
- Heavier flaccid hang
Also found, are these immediate benefits:
- Easier to use than other enhancement methods
- Fun to use, less painful with water than air-based penis pumps
- Inexpensive option for improving erection quality
The most noticeable immediate effect, and the one you are probably most interested in, is a 2-5% increase in size lasting 15-30 minutes.
Other users find that long-term use delivers increasing benefits. Along with the performance benefits, some find that bends in their penises are straightened, and those with weak erections find there erections feeling healthier.
The beauty of hydro pumps, is that even in just one session, you can experience the fattest erection of your life. Post-erection, the flaccid penis can also feel fuller and heavier than usual. This of course doesn't last; often subsiding after a couple of hours for most men. Only after regular sessions over consecutive weeks do the results stay longer after each session. Also, keep in mind that the sessions don't have to take all day; most owners find a comfortable, sustainable schedule of 8 to 15 minute sessions 5 times a week.
Penis pumping is like any other exercise plan, you get better results with consistent use. Another rule of thumb is that beginners to pumping should start slow or risk injury or worse, erectile dysfunction. Overall, sustainability will ultimately garner the best results because noticeable gains in size, erection quality, and other benefits require dedication and time.
The Hard Numbers
The numbers that used to be reported in this post were taken from other users reported gains posted on forums and in reviews. I have since removed them because I felt they were inaccurate and created unrealistic expectations. The numbers I have replaced them with are from my own experience testing these pumps: first a Hercules, then an Xtreme x40, followed by an Xtreme x30, and now finally an Xtreme x20 (yes I read a lot of bad sizing advice online). The x20 didn't exist until 2015, so I had been using the x30 up until then, which was too long for my size.
Nowadays there are even more sizes to choose from, which means you won't have to use an over-sized pump like I did. You can check out my size comparison guide to find the one that best fits you.
After one month of regular Bathmate sessions, combined with a healthy diet of magnesium and nitrite rich foods; it is possible to see improvement in size after the sessions. Most results at this stage are temporary, but the performance boost can be as much as 10% improvement over their starting size in total between girth and length. Now, I typically see 2-5%, but 10% on a good day day is possible -but rare. The duration of effects can be anywhere between 2 minutes to 3 hours post-pump. Sensitivity can be higher post-pump, with stamina replacing it after 4 hours; an odd effect yes, but this is an observable effect for me.
After 6-9 months, girth increased almost 10% with length increasing around 5%. Together, this is 15% total improvement. These results came in both cases where I used the pump for longer than 6 months, with measurable gains happening early months and later on in the challenge. You can find the results here in this chart. In the 2nd challenge I resorted to pumping while flaccid, while the first round I pumped with an erection. In both cases measurable gains happened within the first month.
Each testing round produced similar results, with the second round producing results quicker than the first. In that round I used a Phallosan penis stretcher with a Hydromax Xtreme. In that challenge I feel I failed to use the Phallosan enough to produce effective results, and that the faster gains were a result of the greater degree of control the hand pump provided. On the contrary, it could also have been because I had more practice penis pumping by then.
In both rounds I did not experience permanent changes, and results faded away over the span of several months. To me this indicates I would need to stick to consistent use to maintain results. You on the other hand, may experience otherwise, and others do report permanent results.
I think some men believe that because the effect lasts a couple months that it has a degree of permanence, and as such is considered permanent by them. I agree to a certain extent, because in every round of testing, the maintenance required to keep the results has been minimal; usually requiring 1-2 sessions a week versus 5.
It's important to note that any gains lost due to non-use can be gained back, and faster than before; so you don't worry about losing all your results over vacation. Like working out gets easier over time, so does penis pumping, which is something to look forward too.
