Bathmate – Getting Yourself Pumped For a Bigger Penis

  updated: Dec, 2018

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.

Bath MateHowever, 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”?

Hydro7, HydroMax, or Hydromax Xtreme – Which One 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 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 HydroMax Xtreme X50 (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 HydroMax Xtremes, 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.

The Hydro7

The Bathmate Hydro7 (formerly the Hercules) is the original standard-sized Bathmate and it’s suitable for guys with an erect penis length of up 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.

The size of this pump’s (as well as the Hydromax X30) will be the best choice for most men.

The Hydro7 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.

HydroMax X20

The Hydromax X20 is the perfect introductory model for most guys with a below-average to average-size penis (up to 5 inches/14cm).

The Bathmate Hydromax X20 allows for a maximum increase in length of up to 7.5″/19cm and a girth of 5.5 inches/14cm.

HydroMax X30

The Bathmate Hydromax X30 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.

HydroMax X30 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 Hydromax X30 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 Hydromax X40 for additional width of the chamber, but the extra length would cause the pressure to be unnecessarily low.

The solution?

The Bathmate X30 Wide Boy – it’s got the extra room you need on the sides without any excess room you don’t currently need in length.

HydroMax X40

The Bathmate HydroMax X40 has the same features as the X30; however, it’s larger than that model but also smaller than the Hydromax X50.

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.

HydroMax Xtreme Series

The very latest Bathmate models are upgrades of the X30 and X40, the HydroMax Xtreme-Series: the Xtreme X20, Xtreme X30, Xtreme X40, and even the extra-large Xtreme X50 for guys already very well endowed – between 9 – 11 inches/23-28cm!

These pumps are pretty much identical their counterparts, however they’re equipped with a hand ball pump and hose, plus 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.

This video depicts the Bathmate in use with instructions so you can get a better idea of how it works:

And here’s a video demonstrating how the HydroMax Xtreme works:

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.

Bathmate Before and After Results

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:

Bathmate HydromaxBathmate Hydromax ReviewWhere 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.

FAQ: Bathmate Hydro Pumps

I get a lot of comments and emails with questions and concerns about using hydro penis pumps.

Whether it’s one of the Bathmate products or a Penomet, there are a few questions that come up on a regular basis, so I’m adding this Bathmate Review FAQ to specifically address those concerns.

I’ve also thrown in some useful tips to steer you in the right direction so you can safely get the best results with a minimum amount of learning curve frustration.

General Questions

Q: How much size can I expect to gain from using a hydro pump?

A: If you commit to using the Bathmate daily (twice a day, if possible) you can reasonably expect to gain as much as an inch or more in length in six months and about half that in girth, or approximately 1 cm for every 3 months of consistent use.

These estimates are actually a little on the conservative side – your results may very well be even better.

Consistency is the key, and commitment.

It’s no different than when you work out to build your muscles – if you put in the time and effort, I can virtually guarantee you that you’ll be very pleased with the results.

Q: How long will the gains last? Are they permanent?

A: Any gains you make from using a Bathmate after about the 6-week mark are permanent.

Once you reach your goal size you can perform occasional maintenance sessions just to be on the safe side, but overall your increases in length and girth will not diminish whenever you stop using the pump.

Q: What’s the difference between a Bathmate pump and a Penomet?

A: The main difference between the Bathmate pumps and the Penomet is that the Penomet has a multi-gaiter “one-size-fits-all” type system, whereas Bathmate provides size- and pressure-specific models.

There are pros and cons for using either.

To start with, many men may only need one size pump to achieve their goals.

For example, if you’re starting out anywhere under 7″ in length (which would statistically include the majority of men), you’ll be able to reach up to 8.5″ length and 6.25″ girth by using the Bathmate Hercules or Hydromax X30 exclusively.

This will be plenty for many guys.

And if you do want to upgrade after reaching the max for your current model, it may be time to buy a new unit anyway due to the general wear and tear of repeated and frequent use.

Bathmate Hydromax Vs Penomet

The Penomet Pump and Gaiter Set

However, with a Penomet you will most likely never need another pump.

It comes equipped with multiple gaiters of varying strengths so that as you advance you’re able to increase the amount of pressure intensity with your workouts.

With a Penomet there’s also plenty of room to grow (it’s size is roughly between that of the Hydromax X40 and the Goliath Bathmate models), allowing you to potentially reach around 11″ in length and 7.5″ girth.

One problem, though, is that there may be too much extra room for lesser endowed guys, possibly weakening results due to the inability to fully maximize water pressure.

Which one to buy?

It is completely up to the individual, although I am a big fan of the Bathmate line of products.

Both brands offer proven, high-quality products, so it would really come down to personal choice.

Along with the tips I’ve laid out here, I would recommend that you check out both the Bathmate and Penomet websites and make a decision based on your best judgement and individual preference.

I’m sure you won’t be disappointed with either no matter which you go with.

Q: What is the best routine to follow when using a hydro pump?

A: Asking what the best method is for using a Bathmate pump is very much like asking the best way to use exercise equipment – ask 10 different people and you’ll get 10 different answers.

However, there are some basic guidelines that every beginner would benefit from using:

  1. It’s important to warm up first, either by placing a hot washcloth around your penis and scrotum for 5 minutes or so, or by doing some basic penis stretching exercises and/or jelqing techniques in the bath or shower prior to your hydro pump session.
  2. Perform 3 five-minute sessions with the hydro-pump, initially aiming for 1 cm beyond your normal erect length. After your penile tissues are accustomed to these workouts and you’re more comfortable with using the pump you can increase the amount of pressure used.
  3. Do Kegel exercises during each session. This is an excellent all-around method for enhancing penile health in general, including strengthening ejaculations and improving erection quality and length.
  4. For best results, alternate five minutes of jelqing for every five minutes of pumping. So this would be a 30 minute session that would consist of 5 minutes pumping, 5 minutes jelquing, performed 3 times total. By using this technique you’ll see that there is total tissue expansion with no water retention, and this is the goal.
  5. Afterward, be sure to do some light jelqing and/or deep tissue massage to help maximize your results and prevent the likelihood of fluid build-up or discoloration.

Here’s one tip you can use to shorten your time in the shower or bath: after you’ve started your last session, you can get out and dry off, brush your hair, etc.

As long as the pump is securely in place with the strap (and you’re at least a little careful) you can easily move around outside of the shower without worrying about the pump coming off.

You can actually do all of your sessions outside of the bath or shower if you want, although it’s not quite as convenient.

Q: Are their any safety precautions when using a Bathmate?

A: Care should be taken to avoid over-pumping or leaving the pump on for extended periods of time.

Doing so can cause fluid retention (edema) and pinpoint bleeding (tiny red spots called petechia).

Luckily, both of these conditions are only temporary and are an indication that you’re probably overdoing either the pressure or length of your sessions.

Due to the way hydro pumps are designed, the likelihood of doing severe damage is very low compared to air pumps.

Q: Should I use the pump while erect or flaccid?

A: This is a subject of some debate, but my personal opinion is that beginners start out by being either very warmed-up (very flaccid and relaxed) or semi-erect.

This is because when you go in fully erect and you’re unaccustomed to how the pressure acts on you, it’s very easy to overdo it.

Once you’re past the initial learning curve you can experiment with fully erect sessions.

You’ll notice you’ll be able to easily go much farther than you could before without any extra discomfort – but this is what can be so tricky about it.

If you notice fluid retention and/or discoloration as a result, try going easier on the pressure little by little each session until you find your sweet spot: the maximum pressure with the least amount of discomfort or side effects.

And remember to do jelquing between each session!

Q: Can I use other enhancement products or techniques in addition to using a Bathmate?

A: As long as you don’t overdo it, using both at the same time will really speed up your progress.

If expense is not an issue, I would say using a pump in conjunction with another product (such as an extender) is ideal.

The best practice would be to start out using each one as directed: 3 five-minute intervals once or twice a day with the hydro pump, and anywhere from 2-4 hours a day wearing the extender.

Each product has a bit of a learning curve, but once you get used to that you’ll be ready to start advancing with both.

Q: Will using a penis pump cause erectile dysfunction?

A: Absolutely not – in fact it’s just the opposite.

Vacuum pumps have been shown to be an effective way to increase erection quality and size.

As a matter of fact, doctors have been recommending vacuum constriction devices (VCD’s) for quite a while specifically for ED treatment and it’s the only non-surgical method that’s been approved by the FDA.

The only thing that could effect erection quality is improper pumping technique, such as pumping for too long with no in-between massaging or jelquing.


Q: The rubber gaiter is cutting/pinching when I use it causing pain. What should I do?

A: This is a common issue but luckily there are a couple of easy fixes.

One cause for the pinching, or “gaiter bite”, is simply due to rough, unfinished edges around the opening of the pump.

If you run your fingers around this opening and can feel any rough spots, then you can simply grab an X-Acto knife or other small sharp blade and – carefully – trim away the excess material.

Take your time when doing this so as not to permanently mess up anything.

Although the rubber gaiter is very thick and sturdy, it’s also surprisingly soft and it’s very easy to trim.

Penis Pump Sleeves

Latex Pump Sleeves

A second method that works very well that doesn’t involve altering your pump is simply to pick up a package of latex pump sleeves.

Just pull the sleeve over the pump’s opening and push the rest through.

This is an extremely inexpensive and effective way of eliminating the biting of rough edges and/or pressure from the gaiter’s ridges.

It can also actually improve the pump’s performance.

Making one of these simple changes can make all the difference in the world when it comes to your pumping sessions, almost like night and day.

Q: I am getting discoloration from using a Bathmate. What can I do about it?

A: Unfortunately, this is an all too-common problem that is very preventable with proper post-session jelquing/massage and by not over-pumping.

But, if you do run into this problem, there’s a few things you can try.

One solution is to submerge your penis into hot water (as hot as you can stand without burning yourself) for five to ten minutes, and follow this up with deep tissue massaging.

Using this technique once or twice a day will greatly improve the discoloration or eliminate it completely in most cases.

Another thing you can try is to apply a skin cream such as Amlactin, Luminate, and Hiruscar Gel to help reduce or remove the discoloration.

You can even try an ultrasoic/LED device to lighten or eliminate dark areas or blemishes.

And if all else fails, you can temporarily stop using the pump until the problem clears.

As I’ve stated before, it’s extremely important to do the post-session warm-down techniques in order to avoid discoloration, and also to help retain your gains.

Q: I’m having trouble maintaining pressure/suction. Any suggestions?

A: One of the most common causes of this issue is simply because of too much pubic hair.

If you’re not doing it already, you’ll need to start trimming your pubes in order to create a proper seal.

I’m not talking bald necessarily, just short.

Besides, your partner will likely prefer it, and it just plain looks better.

Barring that, it’s my opinion that using a latex pump sleeve (see above) creates a tighter seal, besides boosting the comfort level.

Q: I have Peyronie’s/curved penis. Will using a hydro pump make it worse?

A: No. If anything it will improve the condition.

According to the people at Penomet it can actually help correct the curvature if it’s less than 20°.

If you’re looking for the best way to eliminate a curved penis, the most effective product you can use by far would be a penis extender.

Q: My Bathmate results seemed to have stalled a bit. Have I reached my gains limit?

A: It’s possible at some point that you may reach a plateau with your bathmate progress.

If that does happen before you reach your goal, you might consider switching to another method (such as an extender or enlargement exercises).

Similar to bodybuilding, if you always do the same exercises in the same way your muscles will become accustomed to it, and build up a tolerance over time – but when you switch it up they’re constantly having to adapt.

You could also try taking a break for a month or two (don’t worry, you will keep most of your gains!) and then start up again.

Basically, this “resets” your body back to a beginner-like stage and you can start the whole process over, producing noticeable results once again.

    If I should use x20 but I use x30 instead, will it affect my results?

  2. david says:

    Hey hopefully this topic is still active, but I was on bathemate website and they say the x30 max erect length is 7″ now you say it can get you to 8.5.” Are they saying that’s the recommended max length for using it to see more results or does that mean I can’t get bigger the 7 using the x30. Because I’m already 7 and just need to know if I’ll get results or if I should go with the x40 because honestly I’m not looking to be bigger then 8.5.

    • It just means that 7″ is the maximum suggested starting length for using the X30, and the minimum for the X40, so if you’re already at 7″ you could go with either one. Personally, I would go with the X40, though – it’s better to have a little extra room than not.

      • david says:

        Hey so I’m finally ready to order just one last question. What exactly is the benefit of the xtreme over the normal x30?? I know it had that handball thing but what advantage does that give over its predecessor??

        • The Xtreme models really allow you to amp up the pressure, plus it’s a little easier to use with the hand pump. I generally recommend the Xtreme versions for more experienced users though, because it’s easier for beginners to get carried away with the pressure. Even so, as long as you take things slowly and gradually the Xtreme will still be OK to use if that’s what you decide to go with.

      • Robert McNeely says:

        Mark Robert here I am average size which bathmate should I start with

  3. Blue says:

    My girth is already 6 inches and my length is also 6 inches. I am only really interested to added length. I don’t want my penis to be any thicker. Is Bathmate the product for me? If so ,which one would you recommend

  4. Fero says:

    One more thing, can I gain an inch after 3 months? Permanently? Or make it last for at least 10 hours just to finish my date?

    • It’s possible to gain an inch in three months, but not typically. It would probably take six months to a year of consistent use for most men.

      The best thing you can do before a date is to delay using the pump until just beforehand, that will help keep your temporary gains for as long as possible.

  5. Fero says:

    Hey! I’m a bit curious, my penis is 4″ and grith 4.25, and I wanna increase both? What do recommend me? In case of bathmate, how long does it last after every use?

  6. Sef Tagle says:

    Hello there man!
    I recently purchased the Hercules model because some reviews suggest that it’s better for beginners. My size is 5-5.5″ erect. Do you think the Hercules is just right for me or should I have opted for the X20?
    Btw, after 3 days of pumping once a day for 15mins (soaking my penis in warm water while warming it up with a massage and filling the tube with warm water) I have noticeable result in both flaccid and erect.
    I feel fuller in flaccid since day 1 and some gain while erect. What im really happy about is it hasn’t affected my level of hardness despite the fact that it got a bit longer due to being stretched by pumping. I was worried using pumps at first because my main asset is the rock hard level of hardness i have and I thought pumping would affect it. I see some men have longer penis but still looks soft even when erect. In my opinion, most women would prefer an average length penis with rock hard erection than longer ones but with flaccid like hardness even when erected.
    Looking forward for your response… Cheers!

    • I think the Hercules should be fine, and since you’re size is borderline you’re probably better off with it. Apparently you’re getting good results, so that’s the most important thing at the end of the day.

  7. Jimmy says:

    Hi Mark great discussion. I have been using bathmate x30 for around two months. I believe my original erect size before starting the use was around 6.8inch. Now I’m hitting the 7-7.1. The question is, should I consider buying the bigger bathmate or use the X30 until I go over the “Press to release” sign?

    • Sotir says:

      Are you using it with the comfort ring or not?

      • Jimmy says:

        Not using it with that. I probably should?

        • Sotir says:

          Let me ask you something, mate.. This measured size that you have hit 7-7,1, is based on the hydromax-x30 scale or not? I’m using the same pump and I push my member to the above 18cm. on the “press to release”-sign. The seal is max to my body, the pressure – high. So when i look at it in the bathmate x30 my penis is with length 19cm.(7,5 inches). One I know – my penis is not that long, the tube is like magic, so my penis is not even 18cm. I know it. So what I suggest you to do is, do your routine one month more, and if you see the same results that you have mentioned, use the comfort ring, and try to hit the same mark, and to stay on it for the session. Because when you’re not using it, You can’t tell that, this is your exact length. Try to stress your penis with the comfort ring. When I use it (I use it once a month) I fell the pressure in the head of my penis, and I challenge myself to hit the same measurement, that I hit without the ring. It could be painful. That’s to maximise the pressure, not to think that next time, when you use it without the comfort ring you’ll be over the press to release challenge. I’m just being honest.

  8. Thomas says:

    Hey Mark I’m looking to get a bath mate. I’m 4.75″ and 3.5″ girth. I know the x20 is probably the better size for now but I’m wondering if a I could get away with the x30 so I don’t have to buy another for awhile, or will results fall off significantly if I do this?

  9. Alex says:

    Hi im from the philippines and I’ve always wanted to buy a hydromax x30 but the problem is the official website doesnt have shipping options to my country. I dont know anywhere else to buy a legit one. Through google though i found out that theres a site called the only problem is i dont know whether its a legit site or if they sell legit products. Can you please help me out? Thank you in advance :) (trying to send this comment again cause i dont know if the first one did)

    • I can’t vouch for that website’s authenticity, but there is an option for shipment to the Pillipines on the order form at the official site If you’re still having issues I would definitely contact their customer service.

      • Alex says:

        Hi I’ve been trying to open the website quite a few times now. But it seems that I cant I dont even know why. It says that the webpage isnt available. Im sure its not my connection cause I can perfectly open other websites.

        • In that case, it could be that your country has blocked access to the site. I recommend you call their customer service directly at +44 (0) 800 808 5594. They should be able to help you get your order placed.

  10. Terrell says:

    I’m 6.5in in length and 4.2 in girth I had the x30 befor before but I didn’t like the suction I was getting. I saw small gains but the opening just seemed too big for me. Should I try the x20?

    • You might try using an X20 for a while, although I can’t say for sure how that would work in your case. If you don’t feel like you’re getting strong enough suction I’d suggest an X30 Xtreme instead, I think that should give you the added pressure you’re looking for without sacrificing room for growth.

  11. Jonathan says:

    Hi Mark,

    I have the X40 model, currently starting off at 6.5″ erect and 4.75″ girth. I was wondering, how reliable is the measuring Guage on the tube? When I am pumping, it seems to stop at my erect measurement, but I ready in your article to go about 3/4″ above your erect length. How do I know when to stop according to the measuring grange on the pump?

    • One way to check the gauge’s accuracy is to use a ruler while wearing the device, after it’s fully pumped. Measure from the pubic bone where the pump’s gaiter is pressing, both the gauge and ruler measurements should line up pretty much the same.

      If you’re not getting past your normal erection length, ensure that you’re warming up properly beforehand. This is a common cause. Also, try using the pump while semi- or fully-erect, if possible. That should definitely make a difference. Jelqing before, during, and after is also important for progress.

    Hi Mark,
    Is it better to do a jelquing session before a bathmate session or after, or mabye both? Also I wonder how long have you been using the bathmate and what gains did you have? When im puping with my X30 im starting to pass the 17 cm line, it it time to upgrade for a bigger model? If so is it better to buy the Hydromax Xtreme 40 or will Hydromax X40 do the same job? My goal is to some day reach 19 cm and also get more girth. I have been using Bathmate for 4 months. Thanks in advance for answers.

    • Once you start approaching the 18 cm mark, it’s definitely time to start thinking about upgrading. Since you already have experience using the X30, I think moving to an Xtreme XX40 would be a great choice.

      It’s definitely a good idea to jelq before, during, and after every session. This will prevent swelling and discoloration, as well as speed up your results and make them more permanent. I was fortunate enough myself to be a fast-gainer, and added about 1.8″ in a six month period, although I’ve discovered that not everyone progresses at the same rate.

    Hi Mark,
    My penis length when its erected is 3.5″ due to genetics, which will be the most same and faster method to increase it to 5.5″. Are any such equipments available in India.

    • You should be able to order from their website (try, unless your country has some restrictions to certain websites. You might also look into getting an extender, which might better help with targeting length if that’s a priority.

      • Robin says:

        Thanks Mark. Will you suggest using both extender and Bathmate or only extender. If extender then which type.

        • In your case, I highly advise you to get an extender, if nothing else. I recommend something like a Jes Extender, ProExtender, or Quick Extender (they’re all fairly comparable). You could also use a Hydromax X20 to help boost your results, but if you use only one thing to increase your length, make it an extender.

          Follow the directions, gradually increasing the amount of time you wear it and the amount of tension you use. If you stick with it and are committed, you will see results.

    Is there a special technique to use with this if you’re going more for girth than for length?
