For many men who lose their ability to achieve and maintain an erection throughout their lives, they will turn to one of many options to help restore that lost function. Their doctors might tell them about all of the medicinal options available by prescription, or they may tell them all about how penile implants work, citing that this surgery is much safer than “it use to be.”
More often, these folks are left out of the loop about the very beneficial solutions that arise when discussing holistic options and at-home therapies.
Vacuum support devices, or penis pumps, have been around for a very long time helping males to restore lost function, boosting their functional powers in the moment, and helping them to achieve and feel pleasure in and around the penile and groin area. By practicing this at-home therapy multiple times per week, this can help to restore muscle memory in the penile shaft and cells, thusly resulting in helping to build and strengthen a longer lasting erection.
While penis pumps, when used as therapy, do help to restore lost function, they cannot bring back all lost function in all cases. They do help to allow those patients who do not want to take more medications or have another surgical intervention to work on their bodies, needs, and to better maintain their penile health.
There are a variety of options when it comes to air pressure vacuum support devices. Each of these below works with air pressure to help draw blood in to the shaft of the penis, creating a temporary erection. Each pump has it’s own set of directions, specialties, and features. Be sure to pay attention to your pump’s specifics before each and every use.

Regardless of the type of air pressure pump, or water pump, you are going to choose, be sure you also set yourself up with a high-quality lubrication to ensure your fragile, sensitive skin is protected from friction. The Wicked Simply Aqua Jelle Water Based Lubrication is great to use with these vacuum support devices and many other pumps on the market.
If you are a person who enjoys self-pleasure mixed with pump therapy or pleasure, consider an alternative masturbation crème lubricant to provide a friction barrier and support the extra friction that will be occurring. The Wicked Sensual Care Masturbation Crème for Men is a silicone based crème that is long-lasting and offers a thicker friction barrier.
