The Bathmate works by creating a vacuum that expands the tissue in your penis. Over time, with consistent use and ample recovery time between sessions (24-48 hours), the tissue is permanently expanded causing your penis to slowly get longer and wider. The tissue expansion also allows significantly more blood to enter your penis - resulting in firmer and harder erections.
Just after using it with a full erection, you'll see temporary gains- usually .25-.75" in length and .5-1.25" in girth (yes, over an inch of girth). These gains stay around for 4 to 24 hours, including during intercourse and after you lose an erection. With consistent use these gains become permanent. I can also vouch for a slight improvement erection strength.
For more information about the 'Post-Bathmate Pump' see below.
My Review is based on both- 14 months using it by itself (without doing any manual penis enhancement) and also later combining it will jelqing, stretching and a few different penis extenders for 3+ years.
I have tried several other devices: 2 different penis extenders, a jelq device and even a 'hanger'.
Some of those were okay, but the Bathmate is light years ahead of ALL those devices for several reasons.
IMMEDIATE RESULTS. After wearing the Bathmate in the shower for about 10 minutes (with a full erection), your penis will gain an extra ~.25-.5" in length ~.5-1.25" in girth. Immediate changes, particularly in girth. It's great to have sex a few hours after use the Bathmate. This growth (pump) will last for about 6 to 12 hours, then your penis will return to normal size. You will see immediate gains, especially in flaccid (soft) size. . I've gotten to the point where if I use the Bathmate, Trojan Magnum condoms are super tight and regular condoms can't even fit around the head (pumped penis vs. magnum condom adult video). I never used to be a 'show-er' but now my penis hangs well below my balls. For more information on how to get the Bathmate post-pump, please view our Bathmate FAQ.
PERMANENT RESULTS (with consistent use). Your temporary/immediate gains will absolutely become permanent if you use this device on a regular basis. It's sort of like working out. When you go to the gym and lift weights, your muscle tissue will fatigue and gain immediate size (pump) but will return to their regular size in about 6 to 12 hours after. If you consistently workout (assuming a good diet), your muscles will grow and remain that size unless you stop working out. Same deal for the Bathmate. Penile tissue isn't identical to muscle tissue, but it's pretty similar- "Keeping Perspective on Penis Enhancement".
SAFETY. Unlike potentially dangerous air pumps, the Bathmate is a water pump and is completely safe if you use it as directed. I have never had any problems with this device and I have used it consistently and aggressively. For this reason, among a few others, I think that newbies are better off with a hydropump rather than an air pump.
EASY TO MAINTAIN GAINS. If, for some reason, you cannot use Bathmate regularly for an extended period of time- simply using it a couple times a week for 10-12 minutes will be enough to maintain your gains (and gains you made from other PE exercises). Once I got to about 7" x 6", I only used the Bathmate a couple of times a week. I maintained my all gains pretty easily it seemed. I've started to use the Bathmate more aggressively again.
About Where Your Pump Is Coming From (Original North American Retailer - New Site: Bathmate Shop USA)
From Bathmate Shop (USA), you will get an order confirmation right away and tracking number when your pump ships.
United States orders will ship [usually within 24 hours] from Oregon (West Coast) or Michigan (East Coast). If you are in Canada, your pump will ship from Toronto.
The distributor I suggest is where I bought my pump from ~5 years ago. I know these guys are LEGIT.
There are a lot of cheap, rip-off and fake pumps on Amazon, eBay and elsewhere that are sold as the Bathmate. I buy a lot of stuff on Amazon and ebay, but I don't suggest getting this product from either.
Bathmate that I have used for 4.5+ Years
If you have any questions about your order (after 10 business days have elapsed) I will contact the manager, Gerry W., on your behalf. You will be taken care of.
99.5% of orders have no issues whatsoever. I wouldn't be endorsing this product if the customer service or pump was junk- understandably, it would reflect poorly upon me.
To this very day- I use the Bathmate nearly everyday.
I use it, I stand behind it and I recommend it to you without hesitation.
It is a symbol of the Good Looking Loser.
This device is nothing short of amazing.
Especially for newbies who have never done PE before and stand A LOT to gain.
I'm not going to name specific sites (and I haven't) but there's a lot of fake Bathmate pump floating around out there. You may find it slightly less expensive elsewhere, but you run the risk of getting a replica pump. I recommend the original retailer because that's where I got it from in December 2009. I know what's in their boxes. Guys ask me all the time if a certain site/pump is real or fake, I honestly don't know, I just know that the guys on the other end of my link are legit.
Which Bathmate Pump Should I Consider Getting?

What Can I Legitimately Expect?
You can expect EXACTLY what I mentioned above- immediate temporary results and permanent results (if you continue to use it).
Although results will vary, I can guarantee you- after the first time you use it (with a full erection, recommended only after your first 30 days)- your penis will be bigger, thicker and probably longer than it has EVER been. Like I said, a .75-1.25" increase in girth and a noticeable, but slightly less drastic increase in length.
I don't have a 14" monster penis, I don't think anyone has. According to those 'charts', it's top 10% in length and the top 1 or 2% in girth. I was the definition of average (5.5", maybe less) before I started penis enhancement. But I wanted to show those who were interested. I'm slightly over 7.2" now.
If you want to see videos on REAL people actually using the Bathmate, check out this page(NSFW) (links to videos of me using the Bathmate are among resources below)
Where can I see independent reviews of other guys that have been using the Bathmate for a while?
You can check out or start you own user log in the Forum, here are some reviews -
If you come across a site selling "new" pump that is under $100, I'm willing to bet you it's fake and it's one of those cheap Korean homemade pumps that tarnished Bathmate's reputation back about 5 years ago. Don't get it. It's not an a Bathmate - it's closer to a children's toy with Bathmate stickers on it.
