Penis Pumps and Masturbating Boyfriends

National Masturbation Month is a big deal here in San Francisco, and with my girlfriend out of town, my boyfriend was going to be the lucky recipient of my masturbatory affections. I figured we could masturbate in front of each other, jack each other off, and maybe I could learn how to incorporate toys into my hand job practices. Maybe. Or maybe it was all a poor excuse to try out a bunch of penis pumps on him.

I’d always wondered about the world of men’s pumps. I’d tried Fireman’s Pump. It’s a simple pump, an all-in-one deal, with a black rubber fitting at the base to create a tight seal around the cock. I tested it on his thigh to give him a minute to check out the sensation, then placed it on his nipples. I read that it helps to have a shaved pubic region for a better seal, but I had covered him with enough Eros Lube that it made a tight fit. But what really made a tight fit was squeezing his hard-on through the narrow opening of the rubber fitting — I was actually worried that I was going to hurt him and was intimidated. He helped by forcing his cock through the opening, and I found he could pull out without injury.

We gave a few test pumps, and it was amazing! We could see his cock grow and expand a little with each pump, and he said the pressure made the skin on his dick feel “tight.” It wasn’t driving him crazy, though, so I figured we should move on to the next toy, the Power Man 6000. This was another “basic” pump, but without the narrow rubber base. I opened the valve on the Fireman’s Pump and squirmed as he pulled it off (with a little effort). We put the Power Man over his cock, which was now deflating rapidly. As in, no more hard-on. He looked at me with a smile — “oops!” — and we laughed. I told him that this was actually an excellent opportunity, because I had always been curious about how guys are supposed to use pumps for erectile issues, and we decided to proceed with the experiment.

The Powerman is clearly a superior pump. It fit nicely and pumped easily; he really liked it. We pumped his softie, and it grew and expanded to look like a routine stiffy — even though it wasn’t. He said it felt kinda good, actually really good, and for a few minutes he had a difficult time telling whether or not he really had an erection. We’d pull the pump off — no erection — and pump it back up. I was worried that he’d be stressed about his “performance,” but he was having fun checking out the sensations and wanted to try something else. We both commented that it was interesting to know that a pump can’t “make” you hard.

So we moved to the deluxe model: the Cadillac of penis pumps, the Cyberskin Pump. This was a powerful pump with a nubby Cyberskin sleeve lining the inside and a battery vibe in a pouch at the bottom, ostensibly for vibrating his balls. He fit his still-soft penis into the sleeve, fit the pump snugly on the base, and began pumping. We could see his cock enlarging inside the sleeve. He really, really liked the feel of this one, and for a while it was like I wasn’t even in the room as he pumped it up to intense suction, released it, pumped, and released, moving his cock up and down against the soft Cyberskin. Tired of being ignored, I made my presence known by starting up the vibrator, which was on an attached variable-speed battery pack. He said he could barely feel the vibrations, so I cranked it to full power, and this got me a happy gasp. He commented that it would rock if the vibrator was in the pump, touching his cockhead, but we were getting great results as it was. The Cyberskin sleeve had the annoying habit of getting sucked into the pump intake, but allowing pressure to escape (and air back into the pump) righted the issue.

The Cyberskin Pump was the most likely candidate for use after I went home. Being a novice to pumps, my boyfriend was pretty pleased to have a new sensation to add to his masturbatory arsenal. But the jury’s in on erotic play and pumps — in the spirit of Masturbation Month, my boyfriend is willing to go the distance and try them again and again, if need be!
