Too Small

Postby Sir Thomas » Sat Apr 22, 2017 8:15 pm

I tried the pump and couldn't get a solid erection. I discovered that the big problem is that even when I'm not erect I'm too fat for the tub so there is not enough room for my penis to expand and draw blood. I'm told I can get a wider tube.

Too fat for the tube? ... Really! most VED tubes are 2" across (inside measurement) so you are saying that your limp penis won't fit?

Perhaps you are not getting a good seal to create enough vacuum for you to get erect? try trimming a little ...
Maybe too much of your package is being sucked up the tube ... you could try one of several sleeves

Yes you can order a larger tube (depending on the brand you have now)
Inside width (diameter) are available in sizes from 1.35 to 3.5 inch in a 9 inch length

It can also help to coat the inside of the tube with a light amount of lube, along with a few drops of water. I have an eyedropper I use for this purpose. This makes it easier for the penis to slide upwards inside the tube.

, as has been mentioned

Hi Sir Thomas;

First off, I would suggest you lube up your penis and the area surrounding the base on your pelvis. This will help get a good seal. Also, as has been suggested, hair will prevent the pump from getting a good seal. Finally, I never had any luck with the pump. It hurt and didn't really anything for me.

Bought a silicon seal ring on amazon. Fits various sizes. My tube is 1 3/4 and it is a perfect sleeve. I use soap and water for lube. Much easier to clean up. Very comfortable and seals well.

Cylinder sizing according to,LAPump

Girth --> Cylinder Diameter
3.50 to 4.50* --> 1.50
4.75 to 5.25* --> 1.75
5.50 to 6.00* --> 2.00
6.25 to 6.75* --> 2.25
7.00 to 7.50* --> 2.50
7.75 to 8.25* --> 2.75

However you also need to take into account that your erection fills with edema after being exposed to a vacuum for more than 10 minutes. Accordingly, I would recommend a 2.25" cylinder for a girth of 6 inches
