The Bathmate Hercules was my very first recommendation to the Good Looking Loser community when I started this website in 2012.
But you probably know that already.
Lets talk about the long-awaited, latest Bathmate model - the Bathmate Xtreme.
It came out in 2013, so my review is a bit late, but I have been using it since then.
It is my default pump and I only use the regular models when I travel, since they are easy to bring along.
In short, the Xtreme is fantastic; you'll make faster gains and ultimately be able to exceed the progress you could make with the regular model or male enhancement in general.
With that said -
The Xtreme is expensive.
I absolutely DO NOT want you purchasing it if you don't have the money or are shaky on your commitment to using it.
You can gain an inch or more (and even more substantial girth) with one of the regular models. People have been doing that for a decade.
Don't think that you need this pump and that the other ones are obsolete.
In fact, the new x30 and x40 models are quite good.
Good Looking Loser's Review of the Bathmate Xtreme
Exactly What You Can Expect
You can expect all the same things as with the other Bathmate models -
Check out these posts for more details on exactly what you can expect from the Bathmate Hydropump, including order confirmation, discrete payment/shipping and frequently asked questions.
Bathmate Xtreme vs. Non-Xtreme Models
The Bathmate Xtreme is basically the same as the regular Bathmate models but the Xtreme gives you the option of adding another level (or two) of air vacuum pressure that is impossible to achieve with the regular models.
This additional pressure is most likely to benefit guys that have been using the pump for at least 6 months or have hit a 'plateau' in their gains (usually just after gaining your first inch).
It is my opinion that total PE newbies will gain at the exact same rate, regardless if they use the Xtreme or any of regular Bathmate models.
Remember, newbie gains come REALLY FAST.
The first inch is the easiest and can be had in just 4-8 months (6+ is more realistic) if you are truly committed.
After that it gets harder.
That is where the Xtreme will really show it's magic.
Bathmate Xtreme vs. Advanced Bathmate Techniques
Long before the Xtreme was released, ambitious guys discovered other ways to increase the pressure on the original Bathmate models.
One such way was created by the legendary Male Enhancement community "Matters of Size" where a wine saver device was used to generate an air vacuum to significantly increase the existing water vacuum pressure.
Xtreme vs. Vacu-vin (Wine Saver)
The Matters of Size method was quite good at adding additional air pressure to increase expansion.
In my experience, the only downside to this method is that the additional pressure mainly expands the head and glans (top) of my penis - while the additional pressure didn't seem to affect the shaft (middle of penis) as much.
With the Xtreme pump, the pressure is consistent and delivers significant expansion on the entire shaft.
Still, the Matters of Size method is quite good if you have a regular pump or don't want to put the additional dollars for the Xtreme.
This is a purely experimental method, not endorsed by Good Looking Loser or any of the other brands mentioned.
Xtreme vs. Pre-Jelqing
Another method that encourages further penile expansion is doing a jelqing session prior to using the Bathmate.
If you have never done this before, it can be very intense and I suggest you proceed with extreme caution.
The downside to the pre-jelq method is the time it takes.
If you are doing it safely, you should be warming up, jelqing for 5-20 minutes, cleaning off the lubricant and then applying the Bathmate. You need to set aside ~30 minutes to do this safely and be vigilant to overtraining. It can be hard to get a strong erection after a jelqing session, which compromises your Bathmate session.
Still, this method is a cost-effective way to increase pressure if you don't have the Xtreme model.
Again, proceed with caution.
This is serious stuff and is not an official technique recommended by Bathmate.
Who Should Consider the Xtreme?
I get a commission if you purchase the Xtreme or one of the other Bathmate models.
You get free shipping and priority service if you use our link below.
I will state again - Do not get ANYTHING if you cannot afford it.
You can do manual stretching (length) and manual jelqing (girth) to get size for free.
I did that for years and made decent progress.
The Bathmate (and other devices) simply makes the process easier/faster and more fun.
In my opinion, the following guys will most benefit from the Bathmate Xtreme -
Veterans who have plateaued
If you find yourself at a standstill and have been doing male enhancement for a while and already gained your first inch - you might want to consider the Bathmate Xtreme.
The additional pressure will likely allow you to break through the plateau and head toward another inch.
(it is my opinion that most dedicated guys can gain 1.75 to 2 inches in total)
Guys who have outgrown their Hercules or x30
If you are in the market for a new pump and have outgrown the original Hercules or newer x30 model, you might want to consider the Bathmate Xtreme x40.
You'll never need another pump, that's for sure.
(Guys don't have the desire/time to do manual exercises)
Although I totally recommend that you do manual penis stretching and jelqing concurrently with whichever devices you are using - you can certainly make significant gains if you just use the Bathmate Xtreme for 10-12 minutes a day.
As I've mentioned - your first inch will come quickly if you are completely new to PE.
After that, you may have to incorporate some manual exercises to reach your genetic potential.
If you have a case of "Pencil-dick" and are looking to add girth as quickly as possible, this is going to be the ultimate solution.
There's not a more efficient or productive girth option out there.
You'll notice the difference almost immediately if you have never done any pumping or girth-specific exercises.
Combine daily Xtreme use with jelqing (not necessary at the same time) and your girth will explode.
Still, I encourage you to look at male enhancement as a marathon, not a sprint.
What Bathmate Xtreme Size Should I Consider?
The sizing is the exact same as with the regular models.
In general -
If you are under 6.5" (without PE experience) - get the x30 or Xtreme x30.
If you are 6.5" or over (without PE experience) - get the x40 or Xtreme x40.
Use the sizing chart below or see "Bathmate vs. Penomet - A Critical Comparison" for even more specific advice based on your starting size and prior male enhancement experience.
If you are still unsure which size is for you - you can always write in below or ask in our Bathmate Forum for an answer in about 20 minutes.
What Else is Included with the Xtreme Package?
The primary addition to the Bathmate Xtreme is the suction air pump tool, suction hose and the special air pump-ready Bathmate model (the Xtreme air pump and suction hose can't be attached to any of the regular models unfortunately).
Also included in the Xtreme package is -

How to Put On the Bathmate Xtreme
There is a bit of a learning curve.
I suggest you read the instruction book (page 4) that comes with your pump.
This is basically what it says in regards to putting the Xtreme on -
- Close the 'valve pip' by moving the black button to the left or right.
(just so long as it's not in the center position)
- Fill the Bathmate with water.
(if the valve pip is closed, no water will come out)
- Make sure the 'valve knob' is turned to the right (clockwise)
- Put the Bathmate on.
(only use a full erection if you have used it for 30+ days)
- Open the 'valve pip' by moving the black button into the center position.
- Attach the Bathmate by pumping the Bathmate toward your body, securing as TIGHT a seal as possible.
(water should come out of the front, but not "shoot" out in large amounts)
- The Bathmate should stick to your pubic region and be hands-free.
- If you are using the air pump, open the 'valve knob' by turning to the left (counter-clockwise)
- Attach the pump (or the pump with suction hose) to the knob.
- Safely increase the pressure of the vacuum.
It takes some practice. Try not to get frustrated if you can't do it perfectly every time.
Soon enough, you'll be able to do it in about 60 seconds.
Just about every other troubleshooting issue is answered here -
Is There A Coupon for the Xtreme?
Since the Xtreme is the newest model, as of 2020, the manufacturer has restricted coupons that directly lower the price.
If you are in the United States, Canada or Europe (select countries only), our coupon link below gives you free shipping and priority status (will ship immediately) -
My final thoughts are this -
The Xtreme model is the very best hydropump on the market.
There's not really much room for discussion.
The pressure and expansion you can get is unmatched.
It is quite expensive, however, and not something you "need" to gain size.
It has by no means made the prior Bathmate models obsolete - you will just get quicker and ultimately more results (especially for girth thickness).
The decision to purchase one is largely, if not entirely - a financial one.
Complete Newbie Xtreme Advice
Use the pump as directed and do not be over aggressive with it.
For the first 30 days, I would use the pump every-other-day without a full erection and without the air pump.
The first 30 days, for complete newbies, is more about getting your penile tissue used to the vacuum expansion.
You might make some gains - measure in centimeters or millimeters to see your progress.
After 30 days, however, the "break in" process is over and you can consider using an ~80-100% erection (this makes a world of difference) and using the air pump.
This will be a bit of a trial and error period too, but you should very quickly feel how much pressure you can take.
You should not feel any sort of acute pains and you won't if you use the air pump slowly (and as directed).
The pump is safe.
I've used this one for a year and the Hercules for an additional 3.5 years.
Just be smart about things; if you feel any sharp pains - take it off and start over with less pressure.
As a rule of thumb -
If you can't get a solid boner before training, you dick is fatigued and you should take the day off.
It will return to normal in 24 hours or less.
Remember - like weightlifting/bodybuilding, you grow during your REST PERIODS and not during your training sessions. Don't hesitate to take days off.

Chris, thanks for the awesome review. Your comment "The Xtreme model is the very best hydropump on the market" makes it clear, but just to beat a dead horse, I'm assuming you now favour this over the Penomet Premium... your previous top pick?
Yup, I graduated from Florida. If you when to SW Rec. (gym) then I definitely saw you... I basically lived in there.
I'm a Gator Football fan, I was going to try and walk-on in 2006, before I had a major knee injury.
Lol yea man there's no doubt we crossed paths. I went to SWRC pretty much every day. I was either playing bball or lifting weights. Tough luck on the knee, bro. I feel where you're coming from; I played some college bball (SDSU & PBCC) and...
Lol yea man there's no doubt we crossed paths. I went to SWRC pretty much every day. I was either playing bball or lifting weights. Tough luck on the knee, bro. I feel where you're coming from; I played some college bball (SDSU & PBCC) and dropped it after 2 years because my feet/ankles were so F'ed up.
Anyways, I think Muschamp is gonna have those boys ready to BANG. He just needs an offense to go along with that defense of his. Lol
Btw, when I said lymph I meant water retention, etc.
You get botox chris? Theres no lines at all in your forehead, looks good aha nohomo
Hey Majestic - every so often I do
Hey, I can't see the other two videos no matter which browser I use. I can only see the 2014 review on YouTube.
They work perfectly now on my Chrome as well, good to see how it works in practice.
Thanks for letting us know. I thought they were in there, the code got stripped in one of our edits
wait you are right -- the videos are gone. let me talk to my webguys.
Hey Chris, I ordered the x30 extreme last night, it will be my first pe device. I hesitated to spend that kind of money, but I am doing pretty well financially right now, and my dick is worth it, lol. Can't wait to receive it and get to work....
Hey Chris, I ordered the x30 extreme last night, it will be my first pe device. I hesitated to spend that kind of money, but I am doing pretty well financially right now, and my dick is worth it, lol. Can't wait to receive it and get to work. There was an issue with ordering, just FYI. I tried purchasing with my debit card, would not go through, tried with my visa, it would not go through , so I did paypal. No biggie, but Citibank emailed me warning me that bathmate, might be a "scam" site. Just curious if others are having problems. Take care and keep up the great work, Love your site!!!
Thank you Alex - you will love this device. I'm more confident that you'll love this device more than if you purchase a regular model for the value.
Hey Chris, which PE device would you say is better without a doubt, Penomet Premium or Bathmate Xtreme? Which of these two gives you more easily, faster and bigger permanent gains?
Def. the Bathmate Xtreme - you can simply get more pressure and grow faster
Hey chris! I gotta question, could you pretty please
Hey chris! Just wanna start by saying thank you for everything you do for the community! I'm having trouble with my bathmate. When I started using it 2 weeks ago, I was getting good pumps. But no when I use it I can't get a good suction when it's...
Hey chris! Just wanna start by saying thank you for everything you do for the community! I'm having trouble with my bathmate. When I started using it 2 weeks ago, I was getting good pumps. But no when I use it I can't get a good suction when it's on my pelvic region. Could you please please help me in what I'm doing wrong and gimme a few tips to help me receive max benefit? I'd greatly appreciate it bro!
Hey Trey --
- ditch the comfort ring
- shave your pubic region
those 2 things make a significant difference, once you start using a full boner you wont have any trouble with suction
Hi from Turkey! Thanks a lot for the everything you do for us. As I see in the video, it seems you find a solution for penis discoloration. Could you please share what have you done? or What should we do?
Thanks in advance,
Hey Uden - nope, my dick still looks the same. I guess its not obvious in the video. I haven't tried to do anything about the discoloration. I don't mind it at all
I normally wear mine laying down to reduce air while I'm pumping. I notice while pumping you have about half air half water. Why question: does the loss of water effect results?
Yeah thats the best way to do it -- in the bath as you say.
The more water the better - but the good part about the Xtreme is that you can use the air pump and compensate for any water lost.
It seems you've solved discoloration problem. How did you do that? Your dick looks completely pink :)
If you can share the solution I'll be appreciated. Cheers!
Hey Motto --- It might look that way but it's not. There's still a distinct 'PE Ring' around it. It's looked the same for quite some time.
I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
To anyone reading this, follow through, read this material, APPLY this material, and enjoy life.
Thanks again Chris, life would suck without you.
