What is vacuum penis pumping?

A clear, usually acrylic cylinder is placed around the penis. At the end of the cylinder a hose is connected to either a hand pump, or an electric pump, which evacuates air from the cylinder. As the air is removed from the cylinder, the penis is pulled further into the cylinder and towards the walls of the cylinder, making the penis larger.

Is Pumping Safe?

Let me preface this by saying that I have no formal medical training, and I am not a doctor or medical professional. While vacuum pumping does carry some risks, when done carefully, it can be done safely. The most frequent problem is someone who is overly anxious to see their penis very large, and goes overboard on the pumping, applying too much pressure to the penis. Applying too much pressure can result in temporary bruising or discoloration of the penis, water blisters, and minor bleeding. Most symptoms usually disappear, in healthy males, after a few days. The important thing to remember is to go slow and increase the vacuum gradually over a longer period of time, so that the change in size is not traumatic and does not cause damage to the penis. It is so safe, in fact, that it is the only non-surgical method approved by the FDA for penis enlargement. Medical Doctors have been using vacuum pumps to treat impotence for years. If done carefully, pumping is safer than surgical alternatives to penis enlargement.

Does it work?

Most men report significant size gains, both during pumping and between pump sessions. Regular use of vacuum pumps gently stretches the supensatory ligament - resulting in permanent size gain. Much like bodybuilding, practicing a consistent regimen of pumping several times a week can maximize gains. Most men report permanent results begin to show after about a month of regular use.

What is Two Stage Pumping?

Two stage Pumping is a special technique and cylinder style used by advanced pumpers. Two stage cylinders have a narrower opening to seal against the body, and encompass both the penis and balls inside the tube; so both can be pumped at once. Like all our cylinders our two stage cylinders are sized to customer specification. Due to the special nature of the cylinders two stage cylinders take an extra day or so to make.

Do you have a retail store?

We are an international distributor, not a brick and mortar retailer. We do not have our own retail outlet at this time. It's one of the ways we keep costs down, and are therefore able to offer higher quality products at lower prices than most of our competitors.

How do you offer a better product for less money?

As a distributor, we are able to purchase industrial grade supplies at greatly reduced rates. Since we sell direct to the consumer via our own website we are able to cut the many percentages and markups charged by order processing agencies and Internet and retail resellers.

Those products that you see on every adult site on the web are marked up an average of 30-40% by each host. By not focusing on multiple host sites, third party order processors and glossy packaging we are able to keep our costs low and pass those savings onto our customers.

What makes your product different from others on the market?

Our cylinders have a revolutionary comfort welded base which promotes a better seal and reduces the discomfort other cylinders may cause. Other manufacturers use a heat processed flared base that has been the industry standard since inception. The base is inconsistent and often causes pinching and restriction at the base of the penis and pubis area.

Why don't you take personal checks?

We have experienced a large number of bad checks, and orders submitted with the statement that "the check is in the mail" and no check arrives. The latter increases our costs because time is devoted to order processing and manufacture for customers who don't follow through with their order.

Our customers generally don't like waiting ten business days for their check to clear.

If you don't have access to a Credit card or Bank Check Card we will accept Bank or Cashiers Checks or Money Orders payable to LAP Distributing, LLC.
