Do I need To Jelq And Do Other Exercises To Enjoy Bathmate Gains?


No. You can use, Bathmate alone and still enjoy gains in size and length. I’ve read from forums that I should use Bathmate with an erection or partial erection but the instructions suggest that use it in a flaccid state. What should I follow?

For beginners, I suggest that you use this in a flaccid state for your first few sessions. You can ask your doctor about this and use the pump with a 70 to 80% erection on your next session.

As you use the pump longer, you will notice that you can last longer session and stronger pressure, this is how I progressed. Aside from this, you will also notice that the force is more intense with an erection.

Stretching, jelqing and using pumps works in different ways. We need a moderate amount of each. Stretching is for penis length.

No. When I bought my first Bathmate pump, the Hercules, it did not include any accessory.

The shower strap is helpful but not necessary because these pumps are 100% hands-free after putting it on.

As for cleaning, I only washed it with soap and water, and it works fine.

When Will I Do My Stretches And Jelqing To Maximize Gains? Before Or After Using The Bathmate?

In my personal practice, I do my manual PE work before using the Bathmate. Pump expands the tissue in our penis and jelqing might only injure it.

Also, if you use the Bathmate prior to jelqing, your penis would be too thick by then. I can’t really speak on using Bathmate before stretching or jelqing as I haven’t done it.

Is It Okay To Have Sex After Using Bathmate?

Yes, having sex after pumping is okay. In fact, you are at your largest size and the sexual encounter will surely be pleasurable to you and her. However, there are reported cases when the penis is bloated. This is when your member looks big but it is not as rigid when you penetrate her. Check this case here.

Probable reason for this is fluid retention. Too much fluid is pumped in the skin making it bloated. This happens when you pump hard or for a longer period of time. So, stick to the rules.

Bathmate Tips: How To Maximize Gains?

I’ve been using different Bathmate devices in the past years and while most of what I observe is great there are a few things that need to be improved in how I did things. Here are some tips to help you maximize the results and enjoy gains quickly while maintaining your safety.

Keep Your Testicle Away From The Suction.

In my first use of this pump, I also experienced the inconvenience and pain of getting a portion of my balls sucked in the chamber. It was painful and inconvenient.

This incident is likely to happen but avoidable. A part of our scrotum is loose so there is a tendency that when we pump that chamber will suck your balls. To keep this from happening, always pull your testicles away from the tube when you insert your penis. Then, seal it with your hand holding the Bathmate.

Minimize Fluid Retention

Bathmate can be used for 15-20 minutes at most. While some proudly say they do 30-45 minutes per session it is recommended that you stick to the 15 minutes rule. Any session longer than this may result to the donut ring effect and penile bloating.

To solve this, again, do not pump more than 15 minutes and don’t pump too much harder than your previous session. Also, massage your penis with mk iii enlargement oil after pumping to maximize the results..

Get a Good Seal

You will not see great results if you keep on using your pump with a poor seal. I understand that it takes time to practice this but this is achievable.

To start with, shave down there. It is difficult to achieve a great vacuum with your pubic hair. It can also be inconvenient for you.

After landscaping, position the pump against your body until you are fully comfortable. If you are in the bath, it will be full of water. Push it own firmly to create seal.

If you don’t get it in your first try, release the valve at the top and try again. It takes a couple of attempts to get it right, so don’t feel bad.

Never Over-Pump


There is a tendency that we over-pump, especially if we want to see results quickly. I started using a strong vacuum right away but only find red dots on my penis. Pumping too hard is not the way this device should work. We’ve got to take it slow because our body is not used to that high suction.

It’s best to start with a moderate force and build up gradually. By practicing this approach, you will eventually see better and quicker results. Also, over-pumping might result in some side effects and injury.

Be Consistent and Persevere

Pumping can give you instant and temporary results. However, if you want to see permanent growth, you need to be consistent.

It takes time to enjoy lasting gains. On my first three years I did a 15-minute session daily. I also take the best permanent penis growth pills. Sometimes I used it twice a day. Make it a habit to use it in the shower or bath so you won’t miss any session.
