Product Review: The Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump

When Bathmate approached me with the opportunity to review one of their leading penis pumps I have to admit that I was initially dubious. Mr. Peaches and I had never explored pumping before and we had some of the common concerns that a pumping newbie might have.

However If, like us, you are new to pumping, then I can’t think of a better recommendation than the Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump. This pump not only came with excellent instructions but it also produced real results—allowing for some interesting new sexual experiences for both my partner and I.

The Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump

The Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump is produced by Bathmate—the world’s leading company when it comes to penis pumps. Unlike air-based pumps, Bathmate utilize the power of water to get the results that the user desires.

As Bathmate describes it, air is quite “spongy and compressible” meaning that any pumps that rely on air are simply spreading the air thinner inside the tube. This can potentially lead to the penis expanding unevenly or to the bending and bulging of the penis (which does not sound pleasant at all).

Comparatively water is incompressible—which means that when the water is pumped and contained in a compressed tube then the penis responds by expanding to the full volume of the water removed. This allows for a more even and (presumably) more reliable pumping experience and gets better results overall.

Bathmate employs award winning engineers to design their line of water-based penis pumps. These engineers are also well-versed in the mechanics of applying a vacuum to a penis—giving users piece of mind about their overall safety and wellbeing.

As I said before, Mr. Peaches and I were initially dubious about using a penis pump. Aside from the social stigma attached to pumping (which didn’t bother us to much) we also had some safety concerns. However apparently penis pumps can be used as a general wellness device for the penis and have even been used to help with erectile dysfunction, so pumping can actually be beneficial to your overall health and sexual stamina.

As long as you follow the instructions then nothing should go wrong with pumping. However, should you feel that you’ve pumped too much and discomfort occurs then the Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump actually has a release valve that allows you to eliminate the pressure in a speedy manner.

Now, onto the product.

The Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump set comes with everything you could possibly want for pumping. This kit comes with the Xtreme Hyropump, a hose attachment, a handball pump, a comfort insert pad, some pump lube, a carry case, a security lock, a shower strap, a measuring devise, and even a small towel. Yeah. When I said everything I meant everything. The pump itself looks very professional but is quite large, so it’s great that this kit comes with a case and lock—to keep your pumping product safe and secure.

The Xtreme Hydropump is made out of polycarbonate and, as well as being body-safe, it can withstand compression pressures of 400 kilograms and impact forces of 20 kilograms dropped from a high of three metres. All additional materials (such as the gaiter base and comfort ring) are made out of body safe materials too, so you can feel assured while using your pump. Cleaning the pump is a breeze (especially with the provided cleaning sponge) meaning that the Xtreme Hydropump is relatively low maintenance.

The Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump is designed for use in the bath or shower—where you can readily utilize its hydraulic pumping methods. The instructions for doing so are as follows:

It is recommended that you use the pump for no more than 15 minutes a day and that you don’t use it again within 24 hours of prior use.

Mr. Peaches tried the Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump for an extensive period of time and the results have been very positive overall. At first he struggled to use the pump but practice makes perfect and he soon got the hang of it (in the bath at least). To him pumping felt like an unnatural expansion of the penis. Some people can find this arousing but for Mr. Peaches it was neither arousing nor uncomfortable, it simply occurred. When asking him about what it felt like he pondered for a moment before saying “It’s like getting a penis-enveloping hickey” and I’m not going to argue with that comparison.

We measured him before and after pumping in order to objectively see whether there was a change or not as well as enjoying a more subjective approach (PiV sex). After rigorous testing we were both happy to see that the Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump actually did yield very positive results. Of course the size of a penis can vary greatly depending on environment or arousal but, on average, we did see a very noticeable change. At times Mr. Peaches could gain a whole inch or more in length, as well as some girth. This may not seem like much but it made a noticeable difference during sex—and I could definitely tell the difference between his girth and length.

Pumping before sex felt almost akin to using a cock ring but with more amplified results—things were firmer, larger, and thicker and it was actually quite pleasant to feel the variation. Now I wouldn’t say that I would want Mr. Peaches to constantly maintain this size but I think that’s part of the charm of pumping—give it a break for a while and the penis loses the perks, but resume the regimen and suddenly you’re rocking out with your cock out. This means that the pump can be used to enhance special occasions or for sexual variety, which I adore.

As pumps go I think that the Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump is pretty top notch but, like any other product, this pump isn’t perfect and we did encounter some hiccups.

The biggest one is that, to this day, Mr. Peaches has not mastered using this pump in the shower. It’s something he can do with a period of trial-and-error but he finds this incredibly frustrating and would rather use it in the bath (where he has no problems whatsoever). This obviously limits our use of the pump and might limit those who lack a bath too. However something important to note here is that Mr. Peaches is not shaven so it could be that his pubic hair is an extenuating factor. Still he did find shower use more difficult, so it’s something to keep in mind.

The next issue Mr. Peaches found was with the hand pump. Whenever Mr. Peaches applied the hand pump he immediately lost pressure in the pump and could not regain it. He has palyed around with the pump quite a bit but hasn’t been successful in getting it to work, at least not yet.

Mr. Peaches and the hand pump do not get along.

However, other than these two issues there’s not much to say about the Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump. Just remember that practice makes perfect. It’s pretty unlikely that you’ll successfully apply the pump on the first attempt (especially if you’re a pumping newbie like Mr. Peaches was). Just have patience and persevere. The results are definitely worth the effort.

Final Thoughts

Overall Mr. Peaches and I were incredibly happy with the Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump and the noticeable results that it provided. Using the Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump wasn’t a flawless process but once Mr. Peaches got the method down he was pumping like a trooper and reaping the benefits.

Pumping can increase girth and length, boost sexual stamina, and provide an interesting sensation during use so I highly recommend penis-owners giving it a try. The Bathmate Hydromax X30 Xtreme Penis Pump may not be cheap but it definitely delivers on its promises.

Recommend to:

People wanting a temporary increase in size and girth.

People wanting to train their sexual stamina.

People with erectile dysfunction.

Do Not Recommend to:

People who want a permanent increase in size and girth without regular pumps.

People who need a quick-to-use pump (ie. No shower/bath required).

People who dislike enlarging sensations.

  • Thanks for this review. To be honest, this type of toy is freaking me out. I’ve tried many sex-toys, but penis enlargment toy is something that do not let me feel at ease. Maybe one day, i’ll grab one & try it. In any case, thank for this review & all those informations about Bathmate product.

    • I was similarly apprehensive but Penis Pumps are a lot like Electro Stimulation toys in that way; the thought of them can seem scary but as long as you follow the instructions you soon find there was nothing to worry about.

    If I use the pump in shower daily (as I’m a newbie) for at least 6 months to 1year…will any gains I get be permanent? I’m just after permanent gains of at least 2inches length and 1inch girth…

    • As my partner hasn’t used it for this long yet I don’t feel comfortable giving you a sure answer. However you could always contact Bathmate directly for advice and info.
      They’re incredibly helpful and I’m sure they can assist with your questions. ;)
