In the male enhancement world, there is certainly no shortage of pills, pumps, extenders, and even ointments that promise permanent penis enlargement.

I’ve personally tested over 100 of them.

male enhancement pills ive tested

It’s no surprise that there is a such a huge abundance of them, being small down there can be pretty embarrassing.For a long time we focused mainly on reviewing pills / supplements that are supposed to get the job done, but if you’ve already poured through our reviews you’ll probably see that there aren’t too many of them out there that ACTUALLY work.

Were taking a bit of a left turn today and instead of talking about a specific supplement, were going to talk about a penis pump that I recently got a chance to personally review.It’s called the Bathmate Hydromax Xtreme, and it’s the latest in a wide array of pumps produced by the bathmate company.

What is the Bathmate Xtreme?

bathmate hydromax X30 review

Based on the success many users were getting from the original Bathmate series, the Bathmate Xtreme was developed to help address problems guys were having with the original version. This product is a water based penile enlargement pump that essentially draws blood into the veins of the penis, creating a full on erection. content/uploads/2014/09/the bathmate in

Over time, it’s supposed to increase the size of the penis by as much as 1 inch in length, but where it really shines is its girth producing potential.

Some users have reported girth gains of as much as 2 inches using the Bathmate Hydro Pump Xtreme, and I can personally attest to it’s effectiveness.

What’s the difference between the Original Bathmate, The X Series, and The Xtreme versions

bathmate original pump

This is a question that I get alot.

Originally, the X-Series was built with the intention of producing 35% more power than the original. They did this by using different materials in the construction, which allowed for increase pressure to build up.

So what’s the difference between the Bathmate Xtreme and X Series?

The Xtreme Series is essentially the SAME THING as the X Series as far as pressure / results, with a few notable improvements.

bathmate x30 vs Xtreme series

The most notable improvement was they added a handball pump that you attach to the top of the device to produce the pumping effect.

Bathmate hand pump

In the past, you could only pump the device by literally pushing it up and down against your penis, which would sometimes prove to be a little irritating.

This new feature allows you to quickly and easily pump, while preventing water leakage. The Bathmate Hydromax Xtreme also contains numerous different bonuses that are not included with the original, including:

Carry case with security lock

bathmate carry case with security lock

Measuring gauge to track your progress

bathmate measuring device

Cleaning kit, comfort pad, and a water based lubricant.

Is the Bathmate good for beginners?

Yes. If you have no experience using a pump before then I highly recommend you get this. In fact, the Hydromax Xtreme was specifically made to address many of the common problems that guys were getting with the original Bathmate hydro pump. It’s very easy to use, and it comes complete with an instruction manual that is impossible to not understand.

How do I use the Bathmate?

The directions for using the Bathmate Hydromax Xtreme are very clearly illustrated in the user manual.

You can either use it in the shower or in the bathtub (recommended by personal experience), and the directions are very similar for each. Here’s a quick video demonstration for how to use it:

Does the Bathmate REALLY work?

Absolutely, it will increase the size of your penis.

I’ve personally used it, and gained close to 1 inch in length and 1.5 inches in girth in just a few short months.

How big can I get?

There’s 2 types of gains you’re going to get from this

  1. Immediate Gains.

    You’ll literally see gains in both length and girth IMMEDIATELY after pumping.

    After you use it for the first time, you will definitely see an impact on your size, and in particular, in your girth. It will increase from as little as a 1/2 inch, to as much as a little over 1 inch. For length it’s a little less dramatic in the short term, probably about a 1/4 – 1/2 inch, it really varies on a number of factors like how much pressure you use, etc.

    Those gains will go away after a few hours, however.

  2. Permanent Gains

    The more permanent gains will be seen from using the Bathmate over a period of several months.

    We’ll talk more about that below.

Are the gains from Bathmate permanent?

As far as permanent gains, the Bathmate Hercules will definitely give this to you. As long as you use it on a consistent basis, which basically means every day or every other day, you will see results. You really just need to be consistent with it, but if you are, those temporary gains will indeed become permanent.

Can I see permanent gains by just using the Bathmate Xtreme, or do I need to combine it with PE exercises, Pills, Extenders, etc. to get the best results?

The simple answer to this is, yes.

By just using the Bathmate Hydro Pump Xtreme and nothing else, you should definitely see increases in both length and girth. HOWEVER, if you do combine it with an extender like the Phallosan Forte, or manual exercises like jelqing, you will likely see faster results.

Vigrx plus and Phallosan Forte
^ The Phallosan Forte and Vigrx Plus

I also recommend taking a supplement like Vigrx Plus along with the use of the bathmate for a couple of reasons:

1.) What good is having a bigger penis if you can’t hold an erection?

2.) The improved blood flow will mean MORE sex, MORE frequently

3.) I seemed to have noticed considerably larger erections combining the two.

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I Use Bathmate With An Erection?

This is another common question I get. To be honest, If I were you and you had ABSOLUTELY no experience with penile enlargement (whether it be extenders, exercises, whatever), I would say for the first few weeks you should use the Bathmate Hydro pump Xtreme with no erection at all. After those 3 weeks have passed, I would then progress to using it with a partial erection, so somewhere in the range of 50 – 70% but no greater.

During the first month, I would say you should only use it for about 10 – 15 min., max. After the first month, I would suggest you use a full erection because it works REALLY well when you have a full erection. That’s basically when you get the full pressure around the veins, and as a result you start to see results much faster.

Can I Use It If I’m Uncircumcised?

Yes. While I am not uncircumcised, I’ve done plenty of research on it and I’ve read threads on countless guys that are uncircumcised and used the Bathmate successfully.

Should I Get The Bathmate Or Just Do Exercises?

Personally speaking, I would combine the Bathmate Xtreme with exercises for a number of reasons. If you do jelqing and stretching and use the Bathmate AFTERWARDS (only about 10 minutes) you will definitely see much better results. Also, because the Bathmate has a focus on helping with girth gains more then length gains, I think it’s pretty necessary to jelq to help you get the length gains you’re looking for.

One recent exercise regiment I found gives GREAT gains is the following:

1.) Pump with the Bathmate for 5 min.

2.) Massage / Jelq for a few min.

3.) Repeat the process 3 times (a total of 15 min. of pumping, 20 min. or so total for the whole exercise).

You would do this every day that you use the Bathmate, and only take off on doing the exercises on the days you don’t pump.

Again, you can probably do alright with just getting the Bathmate itself, but I highly recommend the use of exercises as well to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Click Here for my free “Enlargement Exercises” ebook, which details jelqing as well as other manual techniques you can use for enlargement.

Should I Buy All of The Accessories With The Bathmate or Just The Pump?

This is entirely up to your personal preference. I used mine in the bathtub, so I didn’t see the need to have a shower strap, cleaning towel (I have my own towels), lubricant (can just use vaseline), or carrying case (I don’t plan on bringing this to my parents house for the weekend 🙂

That being said, if you don’t have a bathtub than I would definitely recommend that you at LEAST order the shower strap to go along with it.

Can I Have Sex Or Masturbate After Using the Bathmate Xtreme?

In general, I would say yes. You should have no problems having sex or masturbating after using the Bathmate. I actually kind of encourage having sex afterwards because you will tend to feel meatier and heavier, and your partner will probably be pleasantly surprised.

Can the Bathmate cause Erectile Dysfunction?

Generally speaking, no.

In fact, it can actually do the opposite.

More on that below.

Does it help with ED?

Absolutely. Whether you have a condition like diabetes, high blood pressure, or have even had prostate removal surgery, it can DEFINITELY help in this department.

It’s really all about blood flow. The more blood flow you have, the better your erection quality.

It’s that simple.

Because decreased blood flow is often a common cause of ED, the Bathmate works to reverse this by improving the overall blood flow throughout the penis.

It does this because you’re essentially “exercising the penis” each and every time you pump.

Using The Bathmate To Get (and KEEP) An Erection

Alternatively, you can use the Bathmate to help you create a somewhat “artificial erection”.

What I mean by that is, instead of obtaining an erection the typical way (i.e. physical stimulation), you would use the Bathmate.

Instead of pumping for the typical 10 – 15 min. that you would if you were looking for size, you would simply pump until you achieved a full erection.

Once you reach a full erection, you would take the pump off and place a penis ring to the base of your penis.

ring with bathmate for sustained erection

The ring will help to essentially “trap” the blood in the penis, allowing for a sustained erection.

You can pick up a cheap ring on eBay or the Adam and Eve website, check out the following below:

Adam and Eve –

What’s The Difference Between The Bathmate and A Regular Air Vacuum Pump?

Air based pumps and water based pumps (like the Bathmate) work basically the same.

HOWEVER, water based pumps distribute the pressure more evenly then air pumps, which causes less “edema” build up. Edema is basically a fancy word for the accumulation of fluid under the skin.

Air pumps tend to have an unequal amount of pressure that is not evenly distributed.

With air pumps, typically you need to use some sort of lubricant. With water based pumps, you don’t. This makes for an easy cleanup.

Can I Use A Traditional Acrylic Air Pump in Water?

You can. However, the construction and durability of air pumps are made to withstand air pressure, and not necessarily that of water. This may cause the air pump to break, which may also void any guarantees or warranties.

Can I Travel With It?

Yes, it does come with a handy-dandy carrying case. HOWEVER, I can’t promise that this won’t happen to you should your bag get opened at customs 🙂

How Long Do I Have To Use It For?

It really depends on your commitment to using it. If you are consistently using the Bathmate Xtreme everyday, then I would say your best results will probably be in the 6 – 8 month range. You can use it for longer, but you’ll start to see that you may actually be getting TOO big for the device and may need to step it up a notch and order the Goliath version.

Like I mentioned previously as well, you should only use it for about 10 – 15 minutes per day.

How big can I get?

While the official website doesn’t actually state how big you can get with the Bathmate, generally speaking you can see size gains of as much as 1 – 2 inches in girth.

You may also see length gains of as much as 0.5 inches, but the Bathmate is primarily a girth driven device.

My Personal Results

Strapping something like this onto my penis was by far one of the weirdest feelings I have ever experienced. I got the Bathmate Hydromax X30 thinking that I would probably use it once and then not feel comfortable using it again, but I was wrong. I filled up my bathtub and tried “warming up” a bit before I got started, which is something the manufacturer recommends.

Warming up really just means sitting in the tub with warm water for a few minutes prior to use to get the blood flowing, which I don’t even really do anymore.

I submerged the pump under water and, just like the directions said to do, placed my penis into the open end and pushed against my groin area. I pumped VERY slowly at first because I had heard of some guys doing it to fast and ended up breaking the damn thing.

I could feel the pressure gradually building and when I felt like there was a sufficient amount (maybe 90% vacuum pressure?), I let go….

It definitely felt a little weird at first.

I could see my penis start to get bigger, albeit a bit slowly, and finally reached full erection after a few minutes. I sat there in the tub for about 5 minutes and then decided to release the pressure. At the top of the cylinder there is a little switch/valve that you press that instantly shoots the water out.

I looked down at my penis to make sure it was still there and not deformed and saw no issues. So I again followed the procedure above, and this time let it sit for about 10 min. before releasing the pressure. Bathmate recommends that you only use it for a maximum of 20 min., so I figured 15 min was enough.

I took a quick length and girth measurement to see if there was any noticeable size gain, and I found that I had gained about 1/4 inch in length and just over a 1/4 inch in girth. Several hours later I decided to do another quick measurement, and noticed that the size gain I had achieved had actually gone away. I was back to my original size, but honestly wasn’t surprised.

I continued using it every day for about 2 weeks, taking off only one or two days the whole time. After those two weeks I had actually gained about 0.5 inches in length and 1/4 inch in length, but this time it appeared permanent. I would show you guys before and after pics, but this is a family friendly site and don’t think its responsible to do that here.

The ONLY side effect that I noticed was a bit of skin discoloration, almost like a black and blue mark. There was no pain from it, but it definitely did not look right. I researched it a bit more and it looks like this is a very common problem, and is likely caused from over pumping. But not to worry, this is not permanent, and the discoloration will go away over time.

Which One Should I Get?

This is probably the most common question I get. So if you visit the official Bathmate website, you’ll see 3 different versions available: The Original Bathmate, the Hydromax X-Series, and the Hydromax Xtreme Series.

Fortunately, the people over at Bathmate have made it easy to determine which one to get.

Bathmate Original – The original version is basically your cheapest option, and will get you solid results.

It comes in two different sizes (Hercules and Goliath), and you can determine which one to get by looking at their chart below:

bathmate hercules vs goliath

Click Here to visit the original Bathmate website.

If you’ve used ANY pump in the past (either air or water based) then you should choose one of the more advanced Bathmate Versions.

They have both the X-Series and the Xtreme-Series, with the difference between the 2 being primarily about pumping power.

For example, the X-Series uses a higher suction rate than the original version, but the Xtreme-Series uses 35% more suction power, allowing for increased gains.

Personally speaking, if you can afford it, I would go with the Hydromax Xtreme Series.

It’s MUCH easier to pump because of the handball pump that comes with it.

What does this mean?

Well, instead of manually pushing the pump up and down to build up suction, all you have to do is use the handball pump and it does the rest for you.

It also has 35% more power than the original Bathmate, as well as a measuring gauge, cleaning kit, water based lubricant, and a comfort insert pad.

Just like with the original, the X Series provides a handy chart you can use to determine which size to get:

and so does the Xtreme Series:

Where Should I Buy It

You’ll find the Bathmate Xtreme sold on a number of different retailers, including Ebay, Amazon, and even in some local stores. My advice is that if you are considering on buying it, that you buy direct from the manufacturer at There’s alot of fake versions of the Bathmate out there, and when I originally tested out the first version of it they were literally the only ones.

Now, due in part to overseas counterfeiting, there are numerous fake versions floating around on the internet. They basically repackage a similar looking device in a fancy box, call it a bathmate, and then sell it for dirt cheap. The main problem with this is that many of these fake versions are made of cheap material, and either break very easily or start to leak.

By break I mean that the rubber portion on the bottom (referred to as the gaiter), will literally fall off. Without the gaiter there is no suction, and without suction, you will not see any results. Another problem with ordering a Bathmate (or counterfeit Bathmate) is that the customer service that you’ll get from the company you buy it from will literally be non existent. They have no legal boundaries in countries like Thailand, China, and others that offer any sort of customer refunds or cancellations, and in many cases they wont even return your emails.

The ones you’ll find on eBay are often sold by guys that used it in the past and are just looking to get rid of it. I don’t know about you, but I would find it pretty disgusting to be sticking my thing in another Bathmate Xtreme that someone else was using haha.

My Recommendation

I can say with 95% confidence that if you are truly looking to increase the size of your penis, then the Bathmate Hydromax Xtreme is right for you. It’s one of the only pumps on the market that truly DOES work, and backs that by offering a 60 day iron clad money back guarantee. I’ve used the Bathmate in the past, and it is one of the ONLY devices that I’ve used that actually did produce permanent results from daily usage.

Have you used this supplement?

It's Comfortable

By Richard,  May 25, 2017

I've only been using it for about a month now, but i seem to have gained a little bit of girth.

I would say it's about 1/2 an inch, but I never took any measurements to begin with.

I feel much more "meatier" after using it, thats for sure.

Just an overall more "hung" appearance for hours afterwards.

One thing I will say is it's VERY easy to use and VERY comfortable.

I was a little worried about this at first but thankfully I haven't had any problems in that department.

Hello, I love your site and how thorough and in-depth your product knowledge is. I would love to express a interest in reviewing some products with you.

I was given a Bathmate X30 Xtreme from the manufacturer because of my line of work.

First of all, it's the best and highest quality penis pump I have used - not to mention the substantial gains that are "in your hands" after first use!

The sensation of getting pumped is new to me with water engulfing the penis. The best part is when you do your 'after' week flaccid and erect measurements and compare them to your first day user numbers, it shocks you on how extraordinary the system actually works.

I have plenty of experience with other pumps as I work in the adult industry - and none have ever performed as well as this system!

The quality of my erection and enhanced sensitivity blows my mind. Also the confidence boost knowing your packing it all natural downstairs is amazing.

I love how the package came discreet from the UK (I ordered from the Bathmate UK site, but live in Canada) and didn't have anything embarrassing printed on the parcel.

When I opened it up, the outstanding quality of the shower strap, hydro pump, pump hose, pump bulb, cleaning kit, towel and the carrying case exceeded my expectations. I was surprised to see that each piece meticulously underwent quality control departments (each bag for the accessories was numbered by the agent who inspected it).

One thing I fell in love with is the embroidered cleaning towel that came with it.

I feel like I want to order more of the towel and use them for everything.

The carrying case really blew my mind too! It's almost something I want to use as a carry-on for when I fly hahaha Believe me, it will exceed your expectations and you will not regret buying this amazing product.

I believe at the rate I'm going, I want to buy the X40 ahead of time in case I outgrow this one! hahaha

By Joe R.,  Mar 8, 2017

I started out with the X Series ( and to be honest it took a little while to get used to pumping, but now I don't feel right if I've missed a session lol.

So far I've grown about 3/4 of an inch in girth and 1/2 inch in length and that's basically right after I pump.

After a few hours it seems like the size goes down a little bit, but I'm still 1/2 inch longer and 1/4 inch wider.

Wish I would have known about this thing sooner, thanks for recommending it!

Christmas came early

By Miguel Octavio Gaitan,  Nov 1, 2019
In Short: I would recommend this to a friend.

As mentioned, not only have an erection for a minute but also have small micro penis, tired every pill and penile pump in Philadelphia and nothing worked. Used to sit in the driver’s seat of Honda CR-V outside of the house with the penile pump and by the time the driver’s side door would open, penis would be limp and tiny, but now with all the good reviews about bathmate, it gives hope to an otherwise dismal performance.

User Questions and Answers

How long would I have to use this for the results to be permanent? -David

Well, ideally you should be using the Bathmate ( for at least 6 months on a daily basis.  Once you get to the desired size, then I would recommend cutting back to pumping 1 - 2 times per week to maintain the gains you've acquired.- Rob

What's the difference between the Bathmate Hydromax X series and the Xtreme? -Jason

Great question, and one that hasn't been addressed yet.  The main difference is that the Xtreme is more comfortable then the standard X series because it has a hose and manually operated handball pump accessory that eliminates uncomfortable groin pressure, while enhancing suction power and pleasure.- Rob

Can I use the Bathate along with the Phallosan Forte?  Would I get better results? -John

Yes, they are designed in a way that they can both be used together.  If you were to get both the Phallosan Forte ( and the Bathmate ( I would recommend the following:

1.  Use the Bathmate first for a period of 2 weeks.  You'll start noticing girth gains pretty quickly.

2.  Slowly start introducing the Phallosan Forte into your routine.  By that I mean start wearing it for like 1 - 2 hours a day until you get used to wearing the device.

3.  Do that for about a week and then gradually start increasing the amount of time your wearing the Phallosan.

So week 1 with the Phallosan Forte - 1 to 2 hours per day.

Week 2:  2 - 3 hours per day

Week 3:  4 - 5 hours per day

Week 4:  5 - 6 hours  per day

From then on you can pretty much wear the Phallosan everyday for about 6 - 7 hours a day.  During this whole time you would just do the routine pumping with the Bathmate for about 10 - 15 minutes per day.- Rob
