What Happens During An Erection?


The mechanism that causes an erection is the dilation of the arterial vessels responsible for supplying blood to the penis. To understand dilation, imagine trying to get 100 people into a room through a tiny door. It would certainly happen much faster if the door was bigger and wider! This dilation allows more blood to fill the three spongy tissue columns running along the length of the penis, causing it to enlarge and stiffen. The blood-filled tissue then presses against the veins that carry blood away from the penis, constricting the return flow of blood (once you've gotten those 100 people into the room, shrinking the exits makes it easier to keep them there).


This mild constriction, when kept in proper balance, is what allows one to maintain the erection. This dilation system is important to remember when we talk about penis pumps. There are many penis enhancement options out there, so how do you choose the right one for you? You will see three main types: pumps (air and water), and traction devices.

Air Pumps


Air pumps use air to create a negative pressure vacuum inside their cylinders which in turn draws blood into the penis and creates an erection. To use an air pump, first assemble the pump according to directions (some come preassembled) and make sure to give it a good clean using your favourite toy cleaner. Place a cockring around the rim of the open end of the cylinder - you will need this later. Then lubricate your flaccid penis (the whole shaft and head - this prevents friction burns and chaffing) and insert it into the open end of the cylinder. Press the cylinder against your body to create an air tight seal, and then begin pumping. As you pump, your penis should be drawn into the cylinder and slowly become erect. If at any point during this process you feel pain or discomfort, stop! Pumping should be a comfortable, if not pleasurable, experience.


Once you're fully erect, roll the cockring off the rim of the cylinder onto the base of your penis and let the air out of the cylinder using the air release valve, then remove the pump. That's it! The cockring will help you maintain your erection by preventing the blood from rushing back into your body from your penis. Most air pumps are designed to produce temporary results, the enlargement lasting as long as you have the cockring on (and cockring wearing should never exceed 40 minutes at a time). However, a select few air pumps are designed to create permanent growth over time, producing anywhere from 1-3 inches of additional length and a small increase in girth within 12 months of use. They must be used as per the instructions and with consistency to see results.

Water Pumps


Water pumps use a similar concept as air pumps, but they rely on hydraulic pressure rather than air pressure to work. To use a water pump, fill it with water by placing the valve in the `closed' position and submersing it in the bathtub or holding it under the shower. Carefully tilt the water-filled cylinder towards your body and insert your flaccid penis, pressing the open end of the cylinder tightly to your body to make a seal. Switch the valve to the 'open' position and begin compressing the pump against your body. As you do this, the excess water in the pump will be expelled out of the valve at the top and your penis will be drawn into the tube. Continue doing this until you are fully erect and a powerful seal has formed such that the pump now 'sticks' to your body. Leave the pump attached to you for 15-20 minutes, then release the water pressure and remove the pump. These pumps (used properly and consistently) can produce permanent growth that remains even when the penis is flaccid.

Traction Devices


Traction devices create penile enlargement by stretching the flaccid penis using traction to apply weight to the glans. Using a device that looks something like a medical gurney, the shaft rests between two extendable rods with the glans penis being held in place by flexible tubing that prevents it from retracting towards the body. Following the guidelines set by the manufacturer, each day the rods on either side of the device are made millimeters longer, applying slightly more weight. This gradual stretching causes painless micro-tears in the tissue (akin to what happens when you lift weights). Because the device doesn’t allow the penis to retract, the tissue is forced to heal these micro-tears in its extended position, creating growth. The device is worn daily for 4-9 hours, and can be comfortably worn under clothing without detection. A benefit of traction devices is their ability to adjust major curvatures. Peyronie’s disease is a fairly common condition in which the penis is bent at an exaggerated angle in any direction. The regular use of a traction device can help reduce this curvature by as much as 40%.
