Bathmate – Getting Yourself Pumped For a Bigger Penis

  Updated: March, 2023

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably felt less than adequate at some point with your penis size. I remember just a few short years ago feeling so insecure about it that I was literally ruining opportunities to be intimate with women.

At the time I wasn’t even really small, more in the average range like most guys, but psychologically I couldn’t get past it. At that point that I made up my mind to get a bigger penis and I was determined to find the best and most effective ways to do it.

The first thing I did was to start taking different penis pills and male enhancement supplements, some of which work great and I highly recommend. Besides the rock-hard erections and staying power you get, they give your unit a pumped up look and it stays a lot fuller down there.

That definitely helped give my confidence a boost. However, the size increase I got was minimal, and to get more noticeable gains I soon realized I needed something more.

I did a lot of homework and knew that using a good quality extender or pump would be the best option, but unfortunately decided to go the cheap route and bought an inexpensive air pump.

Big mistake.

That thing was the most uncomfortable contraption I’ve ever used. My dick ended up so sore, swollen and bruised it looked like it got run over by a pair of roller blades.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with using air penis pumps, they do work when used properly. The main lesson to take away here is the importance of the quality of a product.

However, at the time the thought of using another air pump (even a high-quality one) scared the hell out of me. I ended up getting a good penis extender with great results (you can read that review here).

Some time later is when I first became aware of the Bathmate hydro penis pump.

It used water instead of air for a more even distribution of pressure and added comfort. It was 250% more efficient than air pumps. You could use it while you showered. It got rave reviews… guys said it really worked.

So even though I was a lot happier now with the size of my penis (thanks to the extender), I still couldn’t resist giving the Bathmate pump a try. I ended up learning a lot, and  I wrote this Bathmate review after doing a ton of research and finally buying one and testing it out.

The first question you probably have, though, is: “which one do I need”?

Which Bathmate Model is Right For You?

In the beginning there were the Bathmate Hercules and the Goliath: the flagship Bathmate models. The Hercules was re-branded as the Hydro7 (part of the Hydro series) and is a standard-sized unit that is still being produced, while the larger-sized Bathmate Goliath has now been discontinued, being replaced by the HydroXtreme11 (see below).

The Hydromax line of Bathmate pumps are new and improved versions delivering more power, which can really help speed up your results. These models were designed to get the maximum results in the shortest amount of time.

By re-designing the way the valve system and bellows work, the HydroMax increases suction by 30% over the earlier versions.

All the models share common characteristics.

For one, they’re all self contained with no extra parts (except for the Bathmate HydroXtremes, which include hand pumps). They all have visible measurement scales and release valves at the end.

They also all have ergonomically designed gaiters that create a seal against the pubic bone, preventing the loss of suction while maintaining maximum comfort.

So now let’s review the different models and take a look at what makes each version unique.

Product Overview

The Bathmate Hydro7 (formerly the Hercules) is the original standard-sized Bathmate and it’s suitable for guys with a current erect penis length of 5 to 7 inches/17.5cm. It has a maximum length capacity of 8.5 inches/21.5cm and a maximum girth of 6.7 inches/17cm, so if you’re already around that length or larger you’ll need something bigger.

This pump’s size (as well as the Hydromax7) will be the best choice for most men. This is also the least expensive of the bunch, but don’t let that fool you – some guys say it’s still the best and it’s the one I used myself.

Bathmate Hydromax

Hydromax3 – The Hydromax3 is the first penis pump specifically designed for men affected by micropenis, and is suitable for guys with an erect penis length of up to 3 inches/7.5cm. The Hydromax3 allows for a maximum increase in length of up to 4.5″/11cm and a girth of 2.5 inches/5 cm.

Hydromax5 – The perfect introductory model for most guys with a below-average to average-size penis (up to 5 inches/14cm). The Hydromax5 allows for a maximum increase in length of up to 7.5″/19cm and a girth of 5.5 inches/14cm.

Hydromax7 – The HydroMax line was designed to get the maximum results in the shortest time. By re-designing the way the valve system and bellows work, the HydroMax increases suction by 30% over the previous editions.

The Hydromax7 is approximately the same size as the Hydro7, so it will also be the best fit for the majority of average-sized guys out there with plenty of room for gains (between 5 – 7 inches). The maximum amount of growth available when using this model is 8.5 inches/21.5cm length and 6.7 inches/17cm girth.

Hydromax7 Wide Boy – For those who are already doing well in the width department, or who otherwise might be improving faster with girth over length, the standard Hydromax7 may become too snug, to the point where the penis is touching the sides of the pump. In this case you could move up to the Hydromax9 for additional width of the chamber, but the extra length would cause the pressure to be unnecessarily low.

The solution? The Hydromax7 Wide Boy – it’s got the extra room you need on the sides without any excess room you don’t currently need in length.

Hydromax9 – The Bathmate HydroMax9 has the same features as the Hydromax7; however, it’s larger than that model but also smaller than the HydroXtreme11 (see below). It’s best for men with an erect penis size of between 7 – 9 inches/17.5-23cm with a maximum length capacity of 10 inches/25.5 and girth capacity of 7.9 inches/20cm.

HydroXtreme Series

The very latest Bathmate models are the HydroXtreme-Series: the HydroXtreme3, HydroXtreme5, HydroXtreme7, HydroXtreme7 Wide Boy, HydroXtreme9, and even the extra-large HydroXtreme11 for guys already very well endowed – between 9 – 11 inches/23-28cm! These pumps are pretty much identical to their standard Hydromax counterparts; however, they’re equipped with a hand ball pump and hose, making the pumping far easier and more precise.

Plus, the HydroXtreme models come with a bunch of extras, so be sure to check out these new additions.

How to Use the Bathmate Pump

One of the great things about using a Bathmate pump is how easily you can incorporate it into your daily routine.

Here’s the basic steps for using one of these pumps:

  • Fill the tube with warm water from your bath or shower
  • Place the cylinder over your flaccid or semi-erect penis (eventually you can use while fully erect)
  • Pull the pump toward your body once and slowly release to create an initial seal.
  • Water gets ejected from the pump through the release valve at the end of the cylinder.
  • Now you can start pumping. Pull the cylinder against you and slowly release, and as you pump, your penis will become erect and increase in size.
  • Keep pumping and releasing (slowly, remember?) and when no more water is ejected from the valve you’ll know that you’ve reached the maximum pressure level (although that’s not initially what you’re aiming for). Start out with going 1-2 cm past your normal erection length and gradually work your way up.

This shouldn’t ever be painful, but you will definitely feel the pulling pressure. If there’s any significant discomfort it’s important to use the release valve to let off a little of that pressure to avoid injury.

Once you’re at your ideal pressure, leave the pump on for five or six minutes, then hold down the release valve and remove your penis. You should aim to do this same procedure two more times, a total of three times per 15-20 minute session. This will get you the maximum benefit and you’ll see results much faster.

One thing I found to make a huge impact on comfort is to make sure you’ve warmed up down there first – it can mean the difference between a nice workout and a painful experience. You really need to be in a loose, flaccid state, and that includes the scrotum.

If your scrotal sack is too tight it can actually cause a testicle to become sucked up into the pump – definitely not cool! I also strongly suggest that you review and incorporate penis exercise techniques before and after your sessions to maximize your results while minimizing any unpleasant side effects.

Also, whenever possible, using the Bathmate in a bathtub filled with warm/hot water is ideal, although the shower works just fine as long as you keep in mind to always warm up first.

I found the following images from around the internet, and while I can’t personally vouch for their authenticity since I didn’t take them myself (and I’m much too modest to show you my own), I do know for a fact that these are typical of the results you can achieve from using a Bathmate pump:

Where to Buy

So you’ve read this Bathmate review and now the obvious question is: “where can I find Bathmate products for purchase”? Because of the crappy fakes and knock-offs floating around out there, I always recommend only buying from an official Bathmate vendor.

You’ll find that many local adult shops are authorized dealers of these products, but if you’re ordering online you should definitely go through one of the official websites. You can use either one, but in general, go with the official Bathmate store if you live outside of North America (Europe, Australia, India, etc.), or if you’re in the US, Canada or Mexico, use the official HydroMax store.

By ordering from an official supplier you’ll ensure that you not only get excellent customer service, but also qualify for the 60-day money-back guarantee. Regardless of which site you order from, the products are shipped discreetly to pretty much anywhere in the world.

Conclusion – Does Bathmate Work?

There is no doubt about it, the Bathmate hydro pumps absolutely work, and with repeated and consistent use you are guaranteed to see a permanent increase in penis size.

Plus, you have two months to prove it to yourself or they refund all of your money. I used it with awesome results (gaining almost an entire inch in only four months) and thousands of other men have too.

If you really do want to add some substantial size to your penis, you’ll no doubt be satisfied with your purchase. You won’t believe the results you’ll see after only the first use (though only temporary) and by repeating the process over and over the gains become more and more permanent.

I don’t advocate using products that I don’t believe in, and after having reviewed the Bathmate line, I can’t recommend these enough.

I hope you found this Bathmate review helpful. To learn more about price and other info, check out the Bathmate website.
