  • Increase the length of a penis.
  • Increase the girth of a penis.

The best part about the Bathmate’s penis pump system is that it uses warm water which naturally helps to increase the blood flow within the penis.  The penis pump is used for 15 minute intervals where you are able to see maximum results. There products are made with phthalate free material that is body safe. Bathmates Hydropumps have been clinically proven to be safe to use on the genital area by Aspen Clinical Research.

Tell me about yourself

Hello, I’m John Edwin Oakes, Chief Designer at Bathmate. I hold a Higher National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering and have over 35 years of experience in all aspects of automated engineering and manufacturing.

When was Bathmate established?

Bathmate was conceived around 2001 with the first Hercules products in full production and launched in 2006. Now the range has grown to also include the Hydromax X20, X30 X40 and the Xtreme, X20, X30,X40 and X50.

What inspired the creation of Bathmate?

A good friend of mine, a keen athlete and motorcycle rider, suffered a serious spinal injury which meant he could no longer gain and maintain an erection. To try and help him I looked at the range of conventional penis pumps on the market. Though some were quite good I was not totally convinced and, being a mechanical engineering designer, I decided there had to be a better means of delivering vacuum technology. Having done a lot of work in the field of hydraulics over the years I began to look at the penis pump from a new angle. The human penis is, after all, a hydraulically operated organ, so why not surround the penis with warm water and generate a hydro-vacuum, thereby working in harmony with the penis. Putting pencil to drawing board I came up with a few concept designs and over the next few years produced a few trial prototype samples. My friend was delighted with the results when he tested them. So, in effect, I invented the world’s first penis pump designed to be used specifically in water, creating a safe negative hydraulic pressure around the penis.

What inspires you?

Making really great products that satisfies todays and the future needs of every man on the planet

How and where are Bathmate products manufactured?  What materials are used to make a Bathmate product?

The Bathmate is hand made by passionate and skilled operatives in Wakefield west Yorkshire, using only the highest quality materials which include skin safe silicone, high strength polycarbonate and quality stainless steels. We also use high precision robots on the injection moulding process to remove and position the complex and difficult mouldings. My involvement starts in the conception of the part design, right through to the design of the robot attachments and in some cases the basic robot systems.  In my distant previous life I was an automations engineer working in such industries as automotive, industrial automated washing and high speed food pick and place packing.

What are the benefits of using water during the penis pumping process?

There are many benefits to using warm water; the most obvious is increased blood flow to the penis due to the warm water hydraulics and slow negative pressure that the hydropump creates. Another significant factor, the corner stone of the success of the hydropump, is by using it during washing in the shower or bathtub it become part of your daily routine. This makes it both convenient and fun to use, while at the same time providing you with great results and generally giving you a greater feeling of sexual wellbeing.

What should people look for in a penis enlargement device?

I would say simplicity should be the first thing. It must be easy to use, without complex parts or multiple operations. it must be easy to clean , which is very important, and due to the fact you are using the Bathmate device in the bathroom and in warm water means you are far more likely to clean the pump straight after use by simply flushing it out and towel drying it down before putting it away.

How often should a person use a Bathmate Hydromax to achieve desired results?

I use mine nearly every day and have done so for the last 11 years, but using the Bathmate only a few times a week will help promote better penile health and the feeling of sexual wellbeing.  Most people I speak to normally use the device up to 3/5 times per week on average. The feeling you get from the Bathmate is, for me, one of good sexual health and euphoria. I always look forward to my bath time when I take time out to relax and chill, with the added benefit of knowing that I’m greatly improving my sexual health.

Are the results long lasting?

This is a question that I often get asked and it is one with no definitive answer. I prefer to look at it from this angle, after use, the results are noticeable for many hours, when either flaccid or erect, but the effect could well disappear if you stop using the Bathmate. It’s very much like going to the gym and weight training, you personally don’t notice your increased strength and size over a few months period. This is due to the gradual gains over this period and it’s possibly only when someone comments on your bigger build or better performance in the gym do you take notice. This is just like using the hydropump. Each time you use it there are fractional gains in erection hardness and the size of the erection, which like the gym give you the foundation to become stronger and larger, but if you stop going to the Gym your muscle tone and development will fade. This is why I use Bathmate almost daily to maintain my optimum size and hardness.

How have you found the Bathmate has impacted people’s sexual lifestyles?

Most certainly; all of my friends who are into body health and fitness use the Bathmate regularly as part of their own personal health regime. The great thing about the hydropump is you need water to use it and most often after a training regime you need to wash, shower or bathe, so using the hydropump becomes part of your washing process without deviating from your normal routine .

What are your best sellers?

Our best sellers are the Hydromax range of pumps. These give the maximum allowable negative pressure and can be used without excessive force by the user, making the hydropump experience truly unique and, to me, very pleasurable. There are also now many new additions to the bathmate range of products which include the new trim shaver, rocket douche and a wider range of penile rings. Additional to this is a purpose made multispeed bullet, which are all made to the highest bathmate quality standards and customer expectations.

Are there any questions or information you would like to add?

I would just like to thank you for the opportunity for this interview and finish off by informing all your viewers that the hydropump is, in my opinion, bathmate is a game changer  You become more  active and more aware of your penile health. This takes me back to those signs you see in urology clinics, a simple but very important message…Use it or lose it. By incorporating the Bathmate into your daily washing routine I believe you are helping to make yourself a more sexually healthy and happier person. As we all know, good sexual health is a very important part of who we are as males and females in today’s modern society.

Guide: Hydromax Bathmate Penis Pumps

Hydromax Bathmate

Humans make up one of the most important parts of the Earth, in fact they have the knowledge of creation as well as destruction. There are millions of people living on this Earth but are they all truly living a healthy and happy lifestyle? Personal hygiene and satisfaction play a very important role, if they are ignored the person may face a deep depression and face other problems. Today, we are discussing a company who has been manufacturing products for men which help improve their lifestyle problems. I am talking about Hydromax Bathmate which has revolutionized penis enlargement issues among men.

The Company

Hydromax Bathmate works on developing next-generation products for penis enlargement. A couple of years back, the founder of the Bathmate Hydropump suffered from the problem of penis shrinkage due to lifting too many weights. In an effort to improve his situation, he used products that existed in the adult lifestyle industry but none of them helped. They were badly designed, were not capable enough to solve the problem or led to side effects.

To tackle these issues, he believed that a better product could be developed. So after much research, he developed a product which was far better than what existed. It was known as the Bathmate Hydropump which was instantly successful. With a loyal customer following Hydromax started to develop a larger range of products which have proved to be helpful and improved the quality of life for many people all around the globe.

The Problem

The main lifestyle problems that men experience is that they are unhappy with their penis size and/or they have experienced penis shrinkage. The problem is often seen as embarrassing so most men are not open to discussing it which leads to frustration and dissatisfaction in their lives and can be a problem for the partner too! Their girlfriend or wife may not be sexually satisfied with the performance of a smaller penis. If your partner is not satisfied with the sexual relationship then he/she might leave you. This is just one scenario, there can be many other reasons why Hydromax Bathmate should be used.

The Cause

What is the cause of smaller penis and penis shrinkage?

  1. By birth: A small penis size is a problem especially for people who have this problem since birth.
  2. Age: With increasing age, there are many changes that happen within the body. The shrinking of a penis is also a part of it.
  3. Stress: Poor habits and a stressful life can lead to penis shrinkage. This happens because stress may imbalance the testosterone present in the body.
  4. Over masturbating: Masturbation is natural and is practiced by most people on this planet as it gives pleasure and satisfaction. During ejaculation, the body releases a fair amount of testosterone to tackle the orgasm. Now if masturbation is done a couple of times in one day then your body won’t be able to supply the necessary amount of testosterone, this may lead to permanent loss of testosterone.
  5. Diet: Bad diet can cause many problems to the overall health of a person, one of those problems is penis shrinkage. If you intake a lot of fast food every day, penis shrinkage is possible. This happens because the body is not getting the necessary nutrients from the diet and thus it will fetch the nutrients from other parts of the body.
  6. Obesity: A bad level of cholesterol and over-eating will lead to obesity. This leads to a further internal imbalance of nutrients in the body. Your diet must be balanced with healthy habits like participating in daily exercise or you may face penis shrinkage.



Penis Biology

Let us first understand the biology of a penis, this will help you understand the mechanism of how Hydromax Bathmate products work. The biology of the human penis is not easy to understand by people who are not in the medical industry. Thus, we have explained it briefly and simply:

  • Chambers: A penis mainly has three parts internally. Two parts are large and one is small. The larger part is known as Corpora Cavernosa which is the erectile tissue. The smaller chamber which is used for urination and ejaculation is known as Carpus Spongiosum. Now you don’t need to remember those difficult names if you have understood the internal structure. The larger parts are on the top while the smaller part is at the bottom. You can divide these chambers by calling them the erectile tissue chambers, the urinal and the ejaculation chamber.
  • Blood Flow: The reason behind why men have erections is that the upper chambers which are known as Corpora Cavernosa (erectile tissue chambers) fill up with blood. There is a connection between your brain and the functioning of these chambers. When an individual is aroused, the brain releases hormones. These hormones are responsible for sending blood to the Corpora Cavernosa and filling them up. Once these chambers are filled up to the maximum capacity, the penis becomes erect.

The Role of Hydromax Bathmate

Understanding the biology of penis erection helps in the proper understanding of how Hydromax Bathmate products help solve people’s problems with their penis size. Hydromax Bathmate products help in expanding the upper chamber (erectile tissue chamber) by exercising the penis. Enlargement of these erectile tissue chambers will result in thickening as well as enlargement of penis size. Initially, the penis will start thickening in width followed by an increase in the length. The flaccid state will also grow bigger in size. All this will happen in a couple of weeks if you follow the usage guidelines regularly and precisely.

Hydromax Bathmate products have proved that the penis shrinkage problem can be solved. Unique thinking, innovation, and a highly skilled team have led Hydromax to the development of such amazing products. So let us now take a look at the well-known, mostly used and happily reviewed products of Hydromax. Everyone has the right to live a healthy, happy and a satisfied life. It is in your hands to live according to your will.

How to use Hydromax Bathmate Pumps?

Using any personal hygiene and adult lifestyle product can be sometimes confusing. Hydromax Bathmate products have been designed and manufactured in such a way that it can be easily used. Utmost care has been taken to provide comfort and safe use of the penis enlargement device. For best results, it is always recommended to go through the guidelines before starting to use any product. So let us take a look at the usage guidelines for the Hydromax Bathmate pumps. The usage is divided based on the bathing mode of the user where they are either bathing or having a shower.


Step 1 – Preparing the pump

  1. Take the pump in your hand, at the top of the pump the user will find a latch which will be in the closed mode. Pulling the latch down once will allow the pump to be in the open mode. Pulling it down again takes the pump to the closed mode. So the sequence from top to bottom in the latch is, Closed -> Open -> Closed.
  2. Select the comfort pad and insert it at the bottom of the pump. Align the markings on the comfort pad and the pump. The gator and vessel can be adjusted for using the measuring gauge (optional).
  3. Now simply relax in the bath tub for approximately 5-6 mins. It is important for you to relax.

Step 2 – Pumping

  1. Fill the Hydromax Bathmate with water and insert the penis into the penis pump. It should be done while the chamfer is facing down. The base of the pump will be in contact with your body and will form a tight seal locking the pump against your body.
  2. Now start pumping, it will create suction and expel out water. This will draw the penis up the tube.
  3. Continue pumping to maintain the pressure. You can continue this process for 15 minutes.

Step 3 – Removing the pump

  1. Removing the pump is easy. You simply have to compress the valve and it will release the pressure and release water from the tube. The user may then simply remove the pump.



Step 1 – Preparing the pump

  1. Take the pump in your hand, at the top of the pump the user will find a latch which will be in the closed mode. Pulling the latch down once will allow the pump to be in the open mode.

  2. Now select the short insert. Then take the comfort pad and insert it (chamfer down). Align the markings of comfort pad and the pump. The gator and vessel can be adjusted for using the measuring gauge (optional).
  3. Now loosen up in warm water for 5-6 minutes which is very important.

  2. Now start pumping by pushing the pump towards the pubic bone. Water will eject out from the pump and will draw the penis up the tube.
  3. Re-pumping will maintain good pressure and should be done for 15 minutes.
