Penis Pump Sizes: A Guide to Accurately Measuring for Perfect Fit

Penis pumps come in a wide range of sizes—both in length and diameter—which makes perfect sense, as no two penises are the same. Men—and anyone with a penis—come in all shapes and sizes, so it's no surprise that when it comes to some sex toys, condoms, cock rings, and vacuum pumps—in these instances—size really does matter.

Why use a penis pump? Are you looking at buying a pump for pleasure, to combat erectile dysfunction, or to improve the size and strength of your erections and the quality of your sex life? Ensuring your new pump's cylinder is the correct size and fit is essential to getting the results you hope to achieve.

What penis pump size do I need?

To ensure your correct cylinder order size, you must take accurate measurements of your penis length and girth. Both cylinder diameter and length require additional space for your erection to expand and grow, which means using a penis pump big enough to accommodate that.

To ensure your correct cylinder order size, you must take accurate measurements of your penis length and girth.

Typically, penis cylinders should be two to three inches longer than your erect penis and offer a minimum of a quarter of an inch between your erection and the cylinder walls. 

A quick note on terms

The cylinder order size is the tube's inside diameter, which makes measuring your penis circumference vital to getting the best results from any new pump.

How to measure your penis

Choosing the optimum pump cylinder size is critical for the best experience and results.

However, it's really nothing to worry about, as measuring your penis is a straightforward and simple task, as long as you pay attention to a few essential details.

How to measure the length of your penis

Penis length is often exaggerated socially for various reasons—bravado, acceptance, and embarrassment, to name just a few. However, this is no time for elaboration and creative license, as an accurate measurement is essential to ensure the ideal performance of penis pumps.

  1. Place a tape measure or ruler along the top of your erect penis. If you struggle to achieve an erection, measure it while it's flaccid.

  2. Rest the ruler or end of the tape measure against your pubic bone/pelvis. Don't push the ruler into any excess fat or thick hair growing over your pubic bone.

  3. Your penis length is measured from your pelvis to the tip of your penis.

How to measure the girth of your penis

The girth is the thickest part of your penis. For some, it's around the base of the shaft, often just below the testicles. For others, it's around the tip or head.

Using a traditional measuring tape isn't always ideal; however, a tailor's tape measure is a good option, given its improved flexibility. Given the drawbacks of applying a rigid measuring tape directly, the best method is to wrap a piece of string loosely around your penis to measure the exact circumference.

  1. Wrap a piece of string loosely around your erect penis.

  2. Make a corresponding mark on both ends where the string crosses.

  3. Remove the string, and lay it out in a straight line, revealing the correct circumference and accurate measurement.

    What are the risks of choosing the wrong penis pump size?

    There are few risks to using the wrong size penis pump. However, failing to match your penis circumference to the tube's inside diameter can affect its best operation, resulting in an insufficient or too strong vacuum, suction, and pressure within the cylinder.

    Risks of using a penis pump that is too small

    • You might struggle to insert your erect penis into the tube.
    • It can limit the amount of possible growth.
    • You could suffer irritation around your penis due to rubbing and friction against the cylinder.
    • Too tight a fit can result in slight bruising around your penis.

    Risks of using a penis pump that is too big

    • You may be in danger of applying too much stress on your penis when pumping air out of too large a cylinder.
    • Choosing an incorrect cylinder size with too large a base circumference will fail to provide a suitable snug fit, leaking air from within the tube and failing to maintain the correct vacuum level.
    • It may cause temporary tissue damage.
    • You may suffer discoloration of the penis.
    • You may also suffer some soreness to the skin and bruising.
