Penis Pumps or Extenders Which One is Better

A common question many men have when considering penis enlargement is what product offers the best bang for their buck. If you only have one option which one is better, a penis pump or a stretcher. In reality, they both work very well and both have their pros and cons but one thing for sure they will both help men archive a bigger penis, in my article, I will try to be as specific about the benefits of each one and some of the advantages one has over the other.

Penis pumps

Penis pumps can be a very effective way for men to increase the size of the penis, most modern day penis pumps use water, making them very effective and easy to use, one of the attractive things about a penis pump is that they can be used discretely in the shower or bath, and pumping sessions last no more than 15-30 minutes making it easy to use every day.

Penis pumps work by increasing pressure to the blood chambers within the penis this results in several benefits including:

  • A bigger and thicker penis
  • Increase penis size between 1.5 – 2 inches in length and 30% in thickness
  • Improved erection quality
  • Can prevent early symptoms of erectile dysfunction
  • Visible results after the very first time you use it
  • Easy to use

When companies like Penomet claim that men will see results after the very first use this is in no way misleading, in fact, my first pumping experience was incredible, what men will discover after using a penis pump for the first time is that the swelling last for a few hours after pumping which is great for those men who anticipate having sexual intercourse within a 3-4 hour time frame, the reason being is that erections are much thicker and fuller and of course these results will become permanent after several weeks of use.

Penis Pumps or Extenders Which One is Better

Penis Extenders

Penis extenders work in a different way, penis extenders use a sliding traction device to stretch the penis, most quality extenders are comfortable enough to wear all day, the way penis stretchers work is by creating tiny micro tears in the penis “cell division” which heal, over time this lengthens the penis, in no way is this a painful procedure.

Penis extenders “stretchers” have been prescribed by doctors to treat symptoms of Peyronie’s disease, they can also be used by men who have undergone prostate surgery, some men suffer from a retracting penis after prostate surgery, a penis stretcher can prevent the penis from retracting further and help restore it back to its normal size.

On average men who use a penis extender will see an increase in penis size between 2-2.5 inches in length, some of the benefits of using a penis stretcher include:

  • Increase penis size between 2 – 2.5 inches in length
  • Easy to use and can be worn throughout the day
  • Can help prevent a retracting penis suffered by some men after prostate surgery
  • Help straighten a bent penis “Peyronie’s disease”


There are considerable price differences between a penis pump and stretcher, most entry-level products like the Penomet cost just under $130.00 however the Penomet premium cost $297.00, a basic penis extender from Size Genetics which is one of the more popular stretchers cost $199.00 and their ultimate system cost $299.00.

Which one is better?

For men just starting out, a penis pump is a great way to begin to experience the benefits of penis enlargement, if you read many of the different discussion boards most men will end up with both, a stretcher and a pump because each one has their unique quality.
