I’ve been into penis enlargement as a hobby since 2016 and spent countless hours studying penis enlargement theories, methods, and equipment, so I was eager to test-drive Bathmate's newly-updated Hydromax penis pump.

Bathmate is the most popular penis enlargement brand in the industry, so if you've done any research on penis enlargement, you've probably heard of them.

In this Bathmate Hydromax review, I'll cover all basics, including features and benefits, then move on to my own personal experience and success using the device.

Pros

  • Easy and safe to use
  • Increases penis size permanently
  • No lube needed, so less mess than other penis pumps
  • Also increases erection hardness
  • 60 day money-back guarantee

Cons

  • Costs more than cheap Amazon penis pumps
  • Must use on a regular basis for permanent size gains
  • Have to use in the shower or bath
  • Lacks a vacuum pressure gauge

What's the Bathmate Hydromax?

The Bathmate Hydromax is a penis enlargement device that will gradually and permanently grow your penis size if used consistently once or twice a day for 15 to 20 minutes.

The Bathmate Hydromax, like all penis pumps, uses vacuum pressure to draw blood from your body into your penis to temporarily expand your penile tissue. Penis pumps are comprised of a plastic tube with an open end for your penis and a pump for expelling air or water that’s controlled by a valve.

Penis pumps enhance the size and health of the penis, and when you first use the Hydromax, you’ll notice an immediate–increase in your flaccid and erect penis size. Those size gains are just temporary, though.

Your penis will return to its normal size within a day or so if you don’t follow a consistent penis pumping routine.

Hydromax benefits

  • Harder erections.This is why doctors recommend the Hydromax as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, or ED.
  • It will straighten a curved penis. This is why penis pumps are prescribed for guys with Peyronie’s disease.
  • Your confidence will skyrocket. Imagine getting naked in front of other people and not flushing with embarrassment and imagining what they’re thinking about you.
  • Your libido will catapult to new heights. If you’re like me, seeing you dick grow before your eyes doesn’t just give you extra swagger–It makes you a horn dog. And who could blame you?
  • Safe to use. According to the American Urological Association guidelines, Bathmate pumps are safe to use because they’re equipped with vacuum pressure limiters.

How penis vacuum pumps work

Just as your biceps grow bigger after doing regular biceps exercises at the gym, your dick grows bigger from regular expansion with a vacuum pump like the Hydromax.

Penis enhancement devices like the Hydromax work because they harness the human body’s natural ability to expand, repair, and grow new tissue from existing tissue. Scientists call this biological process mitosis.

If you follow your enlargement routine consistently, that repeated tissue expansion gradually lengthens and thickens the tissue and blood vessels in your dick. And your size gains last longer and longer.

Typically after two to three months of regular workouts, Hydromax users notice a significant increase in their penis length and girth.

Size and weight

Bathmate Hydromax Size Comparison with ruler

  • External width: 3.5 inches / 8.9 cm
  • External height: 12 inches / 30.5 cm
  • Weight: 0.9 lbs / 400 grams

Parts and accessories

If you’re looking for a complete pumping rig that comes with all the bells and whistles, take a look at the Hydroextreme in your size. You’ll get Bathmate’s top-of-the-line penis pump along with plenty of useful accessories.

But if you’re like me and just want a simple, effective and easy-to-use penis pump, the Hydromax is for you.

In the box

Your Bathmate arrives pre-assembled and ready to use. Just rinse it out and start your penis enlargement routine!

  • You'll also get the user manual and a free package of Bathmate Jelqing Enhancement Serum.

How to use

  • Place the open end of the cylinder over your penis and seal it against your body.
  • Open the valve and pump out some of the air or water that was inside the vacuum cylinder.

When you pump water out of vacuum cylinder, you create suction that pulls blood from your body into your penis. All that blood from your body rushing into your penis produces a familiar result–an erection.

How it feels

The size and hardness of the erections you’ll get from pumping will surprise you.

I’ve been pumping for years and I’m always surprised by the power produced by my Bathmate Hydromax7.

Imagine your morning wood hard-ons on steroids and that will give you a taste of what you’re in for.

Cleaning and maintenance

When you use a Bathmate hydropump, small amounts of the natural oils on your skin will get onto the pump.  

However, Bathmates never really get dirty. Since you’re constantly rinsing the pump with fresh water, dirt and oil are usually washed off automatically.

After a final rinse, let your Hydromax dry completely to avoid growing any mold or mildew.

  • After using it, give the pump a final rinse with clean water
  • Give it a couple vigorous shakes
  • Use a towel to pat the inside dry or let it drip dry

Storage, portability and travel

Bathmate Hydromax penis pump fits inside dresser drawer

Since Bathmates are so tiny, you’ve got lots of storage options. Almost any drawer, cabinet, or closet in your home will be big enough to store it.

The Bathmate Hydromax is small enough you'll have no shortage of places to stash it discreetly.

Bathmate penis pump fits in small men's backpack

And its small footprint makes it an ideal companion for out-of-town trips, since you can pack it in a carry-on bag or in checked luggage. 

Recommendations

All things considered, is the Bathmate Hydromax a good value for someone looking for a penis pump from a reputable brand? 

After using it for four weeks, I can absolutely vouch for its quality. It’s a solid value for the money.

Do a little research and you can easily find lots of cheap penis pumps online. Personally, I’ve never bought a cheap pump. But I have several friends who have—and I’ve heard plenty of stories about cracked cylinders, unsealable seals, and broken valves. 

Cheap pumps can’t be returned, so the entire purchase price ends up going down the drain. Save the money and buy a quality pump from a reputable manufacturer.

  • This smooth, low to mid-intensity sleeve is one of the best for hard pounding
  • Texture isn’t aggressive or super busy but still feels incredibly realistic
  • Equally good for quick lunch-break nuts and longer edging sessions

Cons

  • May be too loose for guys with Death Grip Syndrome.

Dillion Harper's Crush Fleshlight offers a great balance of realism and gentle stimulation that's ideal for beginners. Crush is a versatile sleeve with a 'mild to wild' personality and wonderfully varied textures that will bring you to your knees.

pros

  • Mild, realistic entrance feels more intense the deeper you go
  • Interesting variety is a ton of fun to thrust hard and fast into
  • Ridges and nubs stimulate gently while building you up to intense orgasms

Cons

  • Some girthy guys say those little bumpy nodes can feel too rough and intense

pros

  • Tight entryway opens into chamber of fangs
  • Lady and butt entries available
  • $10 cheaper than Stoya's version

Cons

  • Slower than average drying time
  • Must Build Your Own for complete Fleshlight with case

The Fleshlight Destroya texture is famous for being one of the most intense and stimulating sleeves, and it definitely lives up to its reputation. But brute force intensity is not its only shining quality. Expect to be enveloped by spikey fangs that massage your member into an orgasmic mess.

pros

  • The Thrust orifice and texture provide a truly unique Fleshlight sensation
  • Two front rings provide soft, consistent pressure to your shaft
  • $10 cheaper than Fleshlight Girls

Cons

  • Blue Ice material becomes cloudy over time

The two leading rings of the Turbo Thrust Fleshlight simulate the feeling of lips and tongue during a blowjob. Each ring provides soft, consistent pressure on your shaft and a range of intensity as you thrust deeper inside the canal. Plus, the successively tightening spiked rings and the chamber of teeth that lay beyond them actually simulate the feeling of a sloppy wet blowjob. And they're only intensified by watching your cock fill up the canal. The Turbo Thrust is a must for every Fleshlight collector.

pros

  • Intense, stimulating texture works great for quickies
  • Entrance feels extremely tight when vibes used
  • Vagina and butt entries available
  • 3 bullet vibrators and 10 batteries included

Cons

  • Can be too stimulating for some guys

The Vibro Fleshlight is like the STU on steroids. The Vibro's special sleeve, called Touch, holds up to three battery-powered vibrators. The entire interior canal of the Touch sleeve is lined with cylindrical "fingers" that rub, nudge, and prod every part of the penis from the base to the tip, similar to the STU's sleeve design.

pros

  • Super stimulating round bumped chambers up front
  • Cool to watch yourself penetrate the toy
  • Both pussy and ass entries available

Cons

  • Clear Ice sleeves become cloudy over time

The Ice Fleshlight comes in both vagina and butt entries, but regardless of orifice, its legendary see-through Crystal texture offers a great combination of stimulation and variation. You get chambers lined with thick ribs, round bumps and rings of various sizes grip and rub your manhood, then open up to a nice gentle massage passage.The variation in textures means that you can get different sensations by focussing on different parts of the sleeve, so I find it pretty perfect for edging.

pros

  • Large, meaty labia slap your balls at full penetration
  • Wide caverns and large nodes offer high stimulation and low intensity
  • Looseness allows slow buildup and long, explosive orgasms

Cons

  • Guys who prize tightness above realism will find it lacking

Dominika's Butterfly Fleshlight provides amazing realism and orgasm quality with a large attractive vulva that you won't be able to look away from. The first chamber has a very open channel containing large alternating pill shaped nodes that allows for quite a lot of movement and stimulation. The second chamber gets a bit tighter as you squeeze through a narrow passage of textured bumps. The third chamber of soft pointed nubs surround your cock and massage it from all angles.

pros

  • Narrow ribbed chamber creates awesome suction effect
  • Milder anal texture great for edging
  • Quiet with fast cleaning and drying times

Cons

  • Longer than average "break-in" time

Eva Lovia's Spice Fleshlight is that rare anal sleeve that feels realistic without being overly intense or aggressive. The Spice texture features a narrow entry chamber followed by a larger open area with small nubs, then finally another narrow ribbed chamber. This design creates a gentle suction effect that sucks your cock deeper into the sleeve. The combination of low to mid-intensity, realism, and mild suction feel awesome and result in high orgasm quality.

pros

  • Brandi's tight butthole is extremely tight

  • Cleaning and drying times on the long side

Brandi Love's Shameless Fleshlight is an extremely tight anal sleeve with a one-of-a-kind penetration experience. Stretch out her tiny little hole and push into a narrow, nubbed chamber that gives way to layers of honeycomb ridges that ratchet up the pressure.

With your dick fully inserted, Brandi's protruding buttocks tickle your balls and tease your sensitive undercarriage.

Our Rating

pros

  • Woven texture in first chamber feels uniquely intense
  • Moderately tight sleeve allows you to feel every bump and rib

Cons

  • Intricate pattern needs a bit more cleanup time

The first chamber of the Nikki Benz Reign Fleshlight is lined with a thick criss-cross pattern that feels amazing as you slide in, especially on your head and frenelum. Push further and you can feel several rings pop and squeeze your tip, before you enter into an even tighter area. There is no relief with this sleeve, it is intense sensation after intense sensation.

Best Gentle Fleshlight - Ana Foxxx Silk

Our Rating

pros

  • A smooth, moderately tight and intense sleeve that's excellent for edging
  • Chocolate brown superskin material beautiful to look at
  • Great for slow buildups and big climaxes

Cons

  • Suction effect can be noisy

Ana Foxx's Silk Fleshlight is silky smooth, but not so smooth that it's boring. There are some mild variations in the texture but overall it's a medium tight and gentle ride that works well for longer and less intense edging sessions. The smaller channel with the little bumps feels delightful as you push into the third chamber, lightly teasing your tip, building excitement and the drive towards climax. This makes it a great texture to try at different stoke lengths and positions.

pros

  • Mini Utopia sleeve include Riley Reid's vagina and butt
  • Two orgasmic orifices for the price of one
  • Quick and easy cleanup

Cons

  • Noisier than larger Fleshlights
  • Not as good as the large size Riley Reid Fleshlight

Riley Reid's Quickshot packs a surprising variety of textures into the Quickshot's smaller open-ended stroker design. Push past Riley's lips into her snug pussy and you'll feel the grip of stimulating gears. On the opposite end, her asshole has a nice tightness to it with a blocky pattern that offer a nice resistance.
