Man uses Penis Pump for a better sex life

Debunking Common Myths About Penis Pumps

When it comes to erectile dysfunction and Penis Pumps, there’s no shortage of myths, jokes, and second-hand stories, usually at the detriment of the user. Unlike many other forms of sexual health products, Penis Pumps are regarded as a taboo topic. Basically, you won’t be seeing any commercials for them during primetime (despite the alarming number of side-by-side “claw foot bathtub on a dock” commercials we’re all used to seeing now for erectile dysfunction pills). So as is our duty, we’ve decided to take some of the most common myths and set them straight. Kicking it off is the biggest myth (and question) there is.

Do Penis Pumps Make It Bigger?

Austin Powers Penis Pump JokesWhether it’s a gag in Austin Powers or just an off-handed remark by a friend, this myth is without a doubt the most commonly held one there is regarding Penis Pumps. The answer, however, isn’t quite so simple.

A vacuum penis pump can make an erection larger, but it’s only temporary.

Penis Pumps work by using a vacuum seal to push the flow of blood into the penis, making it erect. In the short term, this will make the penis somewhat larger than normal, since depending on the veracity of the pumping (and by the transitive property, the pumper), more blood than normal can be forced into the penis, making it engorged to the point of enlargement.

Once the erection has passed, the penis will return to normal size. An erection achieved without the penis pump may differ in size.

Can Penis Pumps Damage the Penis?

This myth is another fairly common one, and due to its fairly ubiquitous nature, has led a lot of men to avoid Penis Pumps altogether for fear of doing permanent damage.

Penis Pump To Help With Erectile Dysfunction However, the truth is that Penis Pumps are not mystical artifacts whose power we don’t fully understand (think Arc of the Covenant, or the Tesseract). Technology for Penis Pumps have advanced considerably in the past couple of decades to provide a safe and natural solution for male impotence. The erectile dysfunction pump has become both more effective and safer. T

But, like any other erectile dysfunction treatment, incorrectly using a Penis Pump can lead to harm. For example, the vigorous pumping described before could damage your penis by forcing too much blood in. Luckily, pumps these days come with plenty of instructions for easy, a safe usage that will leave you satisfied with your decision (and without a popped balloon). The Mayo Clinic explains all possible risks involved, including the fact that proper usage should never cause any problems or damage.

Penis Pumps Don’t Work

Penis Pump For Male Impotence Studies have found that vacuum pumps are just as effective to other methods of treating Erectile Dysfunction (E.D.).  According to reports done by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, between 56% and 67% of men using a penis pump reported the device to be effective. By causing the penis to swell with blood, an erection pump helps to create a firm erection in a matter of minutes.

Penis Pumps are found to be a safer alternative to erection dysfunction pills that may cause hard side effects such as fainting, headaches, and blurred vision. Plus, pills may take upwards of 40 minutes or so to kick in. Penis pumps are much better for spur of the moment activities.

Only Old Men Use Penis Pumps

The stereotype that only older men have erectile dysfunction is a common misconception causing younger guys to feel embarrassed about their own male impotence issues. In reality, erection problems can affect men of all ages. 50% of men experience erectile dysfunction by the time they become middle-aged and 25% of men under the age of 40 struggle with ED. But that doesn’t mean men have to give up their sex life. When the simple solution of using a Penis Pump can put the extra pep in the step needed to achieve a good time.

A Good Night’s Sleep is All You Need

There are multiple erectile dysfunction causes but being too sleepy isn’t one of them. However, there is a correlation between erectile dysfunction and obstructive sleep apnea. Men with sleep apnea are more likely to have ED. There is evidence that treating your sleep apnea does improve erections because your body receives the necessary oxygen to prevent testosterone levels from dropping and to help the vascular system remain healthy to effectively pump blood throughout your body.
