Welcome to my comprehensive Bathmate HydroMax review…

“Size matters”, say some.

“Size does not matter”, say others.

And most people believe in one or the other ideology.

The fact that this feedback generally comes from partners means a lot of the thought process is defined by the kind of feedback one gets from one’s sexual partner.

Welcome to my review of the Bathmate Hydromax penis pump, a device that addresses one of the prime concerns of men worldwide – their penile size and ability to achieve erections.

It is known that men are focused on their organs and the size and performance.

Whether it is good or bad, justified or not, is another discussion altogether.

It is a fact that men do this.

Any kind of unflattering feedback from their partners immediately acts as a huge negative for men.

They tend to feel everything falling apart and their world-changing.

There is the immediate onset of negative feelings that further spirals the effect on their size and performance.

I know because I have been there and done that.

I was on the verge of depression because of my difficulties with my intimate moments.

I was forever obsessing about what my partner would think, how she would judge me and compare, and how I was failing the relationship in some way.

This is when I decided to go for some help to deal with this problem.

I did not wish to damage myself in the process to the point of no return.

I also did not want any surgical intervention to deal with this.

When I began researching penis pumps, I came across this water-based device called Bathmate Hydromax.

Further research into its working helped me make my mind up.

I have been using it for four months straight now.

I was tentative when I began first because I was going to subject my organ to outside pressure and I did not want any bad effects.

It took me some time to get used to the device and to get the desired effect.

However, it has been smooth sailing from there.

I have noticed a slight improvement in my size.

More importantly, my partner is extremely pleased with the results and that is validation enough for me.

In this HydroMax review, I will describe everything about this condition and how the Bathmate Hydromax penis pump helped me overcome my problems.

Bathmate Hydromax Review – Is This Penis Pump Worth It?

What is Bathmate Hydromax?

Bathmate Hydromax is a penis enlargement pump that works on a different technology than air pumps.

It uses water instead of air to engorge and enlarge the penis.

It is considered a safe and scientific option to increase penis size without any surgical intervention.

It can be used in the bath which is partly why it is named so.

This aids the process while performing the daily routine of a bath without a need to go to some specific place to get the job done.

Who made this penis pump?

Bathmate Hydromax is one in a series of water power-based penis pumps.

The Bathmate series was invented by John Oakes way back in 2004 to help out a friend.

According to the founder, this concept was thought of to assist his close friend who encountered problems after sustaining an injury to the said region.

This friend was very impressed by how the device worked and he was able to achieve what he was looking for.

The success of that prototype ultimately led to the formation of Bathmate company in 2006.

From the initial device design and the success that ensued, John Oakes went on to come up with many other variants that addressed not only the length but also the width of the male organ.

There are many in the Hydromax series that can be picked according to personal specifications.

There are other products in the series too that are all created to assist in enlargement and enhancing sexual pleasure.

Why was Bathmate Hydromax created?

Bathmate Hydromax penis pump was created by John Oakes with a view to help his friend gain and maintain erections.

Having tried conventional penis pumps available in the market for his friend, he felt he could provide a better alternative.

With his background in mechanical engineering, the inherent designer within him took this up as a challenge.

Considering the human penis works on hydraulic technology, John Oakes designed his penis pump to be used underwater.

He came up with a design that would work underwater to create negative pressure.

This would help to enlarge the penis and retain an erection for the user.

Penis enlargement – is it possible?

As we have seen, men have an obsession with their penis size and performance- who considers which size as big or small or just adequate, is a very relative concept.

However, it is true that many men wonder at some point in time if they are big enough and good enough for their partners.

There are enough and more articles, scholarly studies, research, and real-life feedback regarding this size issue.

Data shows that most women and partners feel size does not matter.

Most others feel what some lack in size can be made up with girth, technique, confidence, and understanding.

However, men being men feel quite stuck at the size factor.

This is why penis enlargement is a big industry.

This is not a recent trend since this requirement has been around for ages.

It is only that newer methods and techniques are being put into use each new day.

The question is, is it really possible to increase the size of the human penis.

It is indeed possible to add a few inches to the size one has.

There are many techniques, interventional and otherwise to achieve this.

Different techniques used to achieve this include:

  • Surgical intervention
  • Supplements
  • Ointments
  • Patches
  • Pumping
  • Jelqing
  • Traction

Surgical intervention is not without risks of infection and further damage.

It is recommended to undergo such a drastic measure only if someone is extremely poorly endowed.

The numbers of noninvasive methods are many are there is not enough scientific evidence to support their effectiveness.

However, these methods enjoy a large support base among men and there apparently is a lot of positive results.

It is to be noted that because men are vulnerable to their organ size, they might be susceptible to quackery at times.

This is something men need to be very careful about.

Having a healthy and functioning organ is much more important than compromising it just for a bigger size.

Enlargement penis pumps remain one of the most popular methods among users worldwide.

These are also known as VEDs or vacuum erection devices.

These mainly use air-based hydraulics to increase blood flow to the penis, thus causing it to engorge and lengthen.

In the case of Bathmate Hydromax, it uses water hydraulics to achieve its purpose. You can read some Bathmate reviews online to understand more about how it’s done.

How does Bathmate Hydromax work?

There are many kinds of penis pumps and equipment available for users.

These are based on different technologies.

Whatever the science behind each model, these devices are designed to mimic and help the hydraulic action of the human penis.

Bathmate Hydromax differs from other such devices in that it uses warm water instead of air to create negative hydraulic pressure in the penile region.

That is, it uses negative pressure to expel water from the pump instead of pumping out air.

And that’s why it works way better than air pumps.

That explains its naming and action.

Because of the medium used, it is much safer and action is achieved in a more relaxed state.

This device begins work in warm water and makes your organ soft and wet.

Once the pump is operated, it puts even pressure all over the penis region, creating high pressure.

When the device is released, blood rushes into the penis, causing it to grow in size and grow hard.

Operating via water creates an equal distribution of pressure.

This helps to balance the overall effect instead of making particular areas more vulnerable.

For best results and safe operations, only pump as much as advised.

More than recommended usage can lead to tearing of the suspensory ligament.

Does size matter? The eternal question

Some thought processes are ingrained into people’s minds.

They are part of the psyche and are so culturally and societally ingrained that it is difficult to convince them otherwise.

From times immemorial, an active and happy sexual life has been linked with male size down there.

So much so that men themselves believe in this theory wholeheartedly.

There are so many other ways to please a partner that men forget.

A complete focus on whether they are big enough takes the attention away from all other aspects of intimacy and in fact creates negativity that is further detrimental to the whole cause.

As stated, women on multiple surveys say that size is not the ‘be all end all’ of intimacy.

In fact, too much of anything is not good.

Any average or below average sized person can be very good at pleasing their partner if they how to use their tool with confidence.

Additionally, sensitivity towards their partner and being open to situations, and working around them helps in achieving great results that are not necessarily related to size.

Having said all that, it is still a mental block that men face and something that is capable of bringing down their self-esteem.

This is rather unfortunate because even with the best penis enhancement techniques, there is a limitation to what size one can get eventually.

It is much better to learn to use one’s tool as best as possible without risking the health and jeopardizing sex life unnecessarily.

Of course, all of this comes with a confidence crisis which does not help the cause at all.

Where and how are Bathmate pumps made?

Since its inception in 2006, Bathmate has diversified its range of penis pumps a lot.

They now come in a variety of colors, strengths, and combinations for any penis length.

All of them are based upon the same theory of using hydraulic pressure to lengthen the penis.

According to the inventor of Bathmate, these penis pumps are made by hand by a skilled labor force.

The manufacturing unit is located in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

The raw material used for making these penis pumps are of the highest quality.

The skin-friendly silicone is used to make Bathmate products in addition to premium quality stainless steel and high strength polycarbonates.

To enable precision finish, robotics is used to place the difficult moldings.

This way any kind of human error is ruled out.

This level of precision and attention to detail can only be expected from someone with an engineering background that is applied to an innovative idea.

Guidelines to choose the best penis pumps

Buying a penis pump is as much a matter of trust as it is about results.

One cannot randomly order any product simply by surfing the internet especially if this going to be your first penis pump.

Following is a list of criteria that would help to choose the right HydroMax pumps:

1) Measure yourself

Begin where it all matters.

You are going to purchase a pump for the most important manhood tool you possess.

You must take all care to get the right one.

Start by measuring your penis by following certain guidelines. It’s best to use a fabric tape measure.

This way you know where you stand.

It is also a marker of how much improvement you have made.

2) Finalize model and power

Now that you are sure of your size, search for the model that you think will work for you.

Each of us has different requirements and expectations from penile devices.

It is important to see how much power a particular model delivers.

This will determine the amount of negative hydraulic pressure that will be applied to the penis, hence determining results. And it can also prevent premature ejaculation.

3) Choose the correct size

With the model and power finalized and with knowing your own size, you are all set to choose the device size. It’s impossible to have one pump size that fits all.

Getting the correct size is extremely important because it can improve erection quality.

You will be using it on your intimate most organ and cannot afford any damage.

Every model comes with a penis length or size guide.

Use that to enable yourself the right pick.

Remember penis pumps especially Hydromax pumps won’t enhance your penis growth.

4) Check safety

A big part of finalizing and going with a particular brand or model will have to be safety standards.

Choose one that has been tested adequately medically and has the relevant certification.

The unit should work at maximum power within safe pressure values.

5) Check reviews and ratings

Thanks to the Internet, there are reviews and ratings galore for every kind of product in the market.

The same is true for this industry as well.

Go through different websites and product ratings to decide upon the efficacy of particular models.

6) Pick accessories

Many of these penis pumps come with different accessories (like a shower strap and cleaning kit) that can help extract maximum gains.

Just FYI, shower straps are actually one of many Bathmate accessories.

Many accessories are really practical and of great use.

Go through the range of products offered by a particular company and choose well.

7) Read the manual carefully

Remember that each penis pump will have a different working principle.

Just because one brand works a certain way, the other will not.

Read the instruction manual carefully before beginning to use the product.

Performance anxiety and reasons for small penile size

An all-pervasive thought process focused on doing well in bed is a very male thing.

There is nothing right or wrong about this, it is just the way things are.

As we have discussed earlier, it is a deeply ingrained mindset that goes back centuries.

This is often termed as ‘male performance anxiety’.

Basically, it is a way of thinking that every time one gets intimate, one has to ‘perform’ for someone and get evaluated in the process.

There are many reasons why men falter while in bed.

These can be physical, mental, or the side effect of medicines one is on.

Let us look at different reasons why ‘performance’ is less than optimal at times.

1) Physical reasons

These are mainly due to the size and girth of the male organ.

Now one may be less blessed than others, part of it to do with heredity or simply a one-off case.

There may also be stunted growth due to circumstances, lack of nutrition, closeted outfits, or even suffering an accident that can cause problems.

Hypogonadism is another condition that causes the male hormones to be less than adequately present.

This can impact the growth and size of the organ.

Either of these reasons can cause the penis to not grow to average size, causing distress and mental agony to the person.

Surprisingly the person concerned might be really good at his job but inhibited thinking spoils it all for him and his partner.

2) Mental reasons

As is known, mindset plays a very important role in how a person performs in bed.

If the size and dimensions and fear of judgment keep lurking in the mind, this will reflect on how one does.

Even the memory of a bad encounter sometime in the past might haunt one enough to spoil it all.

Taking each day as a new day helps.

Being focused and mindful of pleasurable emotions helps to take away the stress.

There are so many other senses to pamper, taste, touch, smell, sight, and sounds.

3) Medicine side effects

In addition to the above reasons, there are some medications that can affect penis performance and the ability to attain erections.

In fact, there is an entire list of these medicines.

It is believed that antipsychotic drugs are not good for sexual health.

Libido might also be affected by certain drugs that block dopamine or testosterone.

These drugs might be necessitated by some existing medical condition that a person is having.

As a side effect, they might experience a decline in their sexual abilities.

What are the different Bathmate pumps?

As mentioned earlier, Bathmate continues in its endeavor to provide the best benefits to users who are looking to increase their penis size.

They use negative hydraulic pressure in their products to help achieve penile lengthening.

To this end, there are quite a few products in the Bathmate Hydropump series.

These can be described as follows :

  • Hydro 7 Bathmate PumpsThis provides an erect length of 5 to 7 inches. It has average power and comes in three color variants, white, blue, and red.
  • Hydromax 7This provides an erect length of 5 to 7 inches. It has above-average power and also comes in three colors, white, blue, and red.
  • Hydromax 7 WideThis provides a girth of 6.5” + in addition to an erect length of 5 to 7 inches. It has above-average power and is available in white, blue, and red color variants. This is for men with a much bigger penis size.
  • Bathmate HydroXtreme 7 – This device provides an erect length of 5 to 7 inches and has full power to its credit. It comes only in one color – white.
  • Bathmate Hydroxtreme 7 Wide – This device provides a girth of 6.5” + along with an erect length of 5 to 7 inches at full power. This comes in just one color – white.

Each of these comes with a satisfaction guarantee for the user, which means users can return the products within 60 days of purchase if not registering significant improvement in penile size.

This rather expansive guarantee time indicates the kind of confidence the manufacturers have in their products.

The Bathmate Hydromax series has been designed to fit any penis size that measures up to 5 to 7 inches.

User guide – an insider look

I am going to now share with readers the steps I followed while using the Bathmate Hydromax pump.

  • Relax while getting into the shower. Try to remove all negative thoughts and let your mind calm down.
  • The pip piece should now be in a close position.
  • Fill the penis pump with warm water after removing the insert.
  • Put the insert back in place.
  • Carefully place the penis pump on your pubic bone with care to push aside any pubic hair.
  • Make sure the pip piece is now closed.
  • Place the pump up and place the piece in position by opening the valve.
  • Begin pumping slowly and evenly to the point where the bellows piece weakens.
  • Depress the cap to release the vacuum pressure and remove the hydro pump easily.
  • For a better penile workout remove the Bathmate Hydromax penis pump every two minutes and then resume. This way you can avoid unnecessary pressure.
  • After each pump, the session massages your penis well and repeats it all over again.
  • Make sure to stay within the advised pump timings and do not exceed that limit.

I have to say here that getting used to this pump takes time and it is possible that two or three tries might be needed to get the action just right.

It is said that length is not everything.

It is often the girth that makes all the difference when it comes to intimacy.

What I felt after using Bathmate Hydromax

After using the Bathmate Hydromax pump for the prescribed number of penis pumps regularly for 2 months, I certainly felt longer than before.

I definitely needed to release the tension and sexual energy and did so in a satisfactory manner.

That is after all that we are looking for anyway.

With extended and regular use, there has not only been an improvement in my dimensions and abilities, but I have also been high on confidence.

This has done more for my confidence than any amount of counseling could ever do that’s why I’m writing this HydroMax review.

I have more energy and sustaining power than I have experienced in a very long time.

In terms of the biology behind it, this is how it is generally put:

  • There is increased blood flow to the penis. This ensures good penile health and functioning.
  • Bathmate helps to gain maximum penile dimension growth in terms of girth as well as length.
  • The vacuum action helps in pumping the rush of blood into this region, which makes the penis engorged and better endowed.
  • There is way more satisfaction in my intimate moments, not only for me but for my partner as well.
  • With improvement in my performance skills in bed and a more positive attitude, I am seeing a better overall mental state.
