Penomet Vs. Bathmate

Fact Checked On: 3-20-2021

Over the years, I have used numerous PE devices.

You name it, I’ve probably used it at one point or another.

Just the other day I had a site visitor ask me what the difference was between the Penomet and Bathmate.

I was actually surprised that no one had asked that very question in the several years I’ve been writing about these products.

So I figured I would write this Penomet Vs. Bathmate review so you can make an informed decision on which one to buy.

First off, let me explain both devices so you get a feel for how they work.

What is The Bathmate?

The Bathmate is a medically approved, doctor recommended device that uses suction therapy to expand the penile tissues within the corpora cavernosa.

The Bathmate

The corpora cavernosa is basically what makes the penis erect when your stimulated sexually, and all of the products we’re going to talk about in this article have some sort of influence on it’s size.


Bathmate has a GREAT video explaining exactly how it works, check it out below:

Note:if you can’t watch it because you’re at work or something, I have a detailed description in writing of how the Bathmate works here.


How Long Until I Can Expect Results?

With consistent use, you can expect to gain about 2 – 3 inches in girth and 1 inch in length after about 6 months. I personally have used the Bathmate in the past and gained about 1 inch in girth and 0.5 inches in length.

This was just after 1 MONTH of daily pumping, you WILL see better gains if you use it for longer.

That means that sticking with the Bathmate for a long time is likely going to give you some pretty significant gains if that is what you are looking for, and let’s be honest, who isn’t.

Where To Buy?

I personally recommend that should you decide to order the Bathmate, you order it from their official website

However, Be WARY of Fakes

Due to it’s ever increasing popularity, there are literally DOZENS of knockoffs of the Bathmate being sold in sites like Amazon and eBay.

While generally cheaper than the official Bathmate website, these cheap knockoffs break VERY easily, and are not covered by the manufacturers warranty.

So if it breaks and you did NOT buy it from the official site, you’re shit out of luck…

Fake versions of the Bathmate tend to have poor construction, and you’ll see a metal spring at the top of them.


The REAL Bathmate is owned and operated by a company called DX Products a British company.

What is The Penomet?

Similar to the Bathmate, the Penomet is a water based penis pump that helps you gain girth, as well as a bit of length.

It’s a scientifically proven device that is actually certified by several agencies, including a CE marking (kind of like the FCC’s Declaration of Conformity), and SGS certified, which basically means it is compliant with regulations and standards.

So what does all this mean?

Well, essentially it means that the Penomet is built to a certain level of quality, something you won’t find in practically any other pump.

It works virtually identical to the Bathmate, but a little later on I will take about the major differences between the 2.

The Penomet was marketed and is owned by a company called Arctic Sea Limited, an Iceland based company.

Bathmate Vs. Penomet – Some MAJOR Differences

Out of all of the devices on this page, the Bathmate is closest in both design and operation to the Penomet.

penomet vs bathmate

They’re both pumps.

They both use suction therapy to draw more blood into the penile chambers, allowing for increased girth gains.

They both offer a 60 day money back guarantee.

AND, they both WORK.

However, that’s where the similarities end.

There are some notable differences between the Bathmate and the Penomet, including:


The original Bathmate (Hercules version) retails at $110.

While the Penomet equivalent (the standard pump) sells for $127.

As you can see, not a huge difference.

The Penomet Extra, which has 3 different gaiters (more on this below), costs $197, which is substantially cheaper then the Bathmate Xtreme Series.

The Xtreme Series X50 version costs $349.


The Premium Penomet version comes with 5 different gaiters, which are the accordion looking things at the base of the pump.

As you go up in “force” the suction created in the pump becomes stronger, which allows for increased blood flow and bigger gains.

The downside (and sometimes an upside depending on who you talk to) to having these gaiters is that you have to continually switch them out as you progress to larger sizes.

I can tell you from experience that it’s NOT very easy to do this sometimes. I’ve had to use knives and other long objects to pry the gaiters off, and in some cases it caused the gaiters to be damaged.

In addition, if you don’t clean them correctly the warranty is basically voided.


Not good.

With the Bathmate you don’t have to worry about switching out gaiters, because it only comes with one.

However, as you do get larger in size you will ultimately have to “upgrade” to a larger Bathmate with a larger gaiter. This could prove not very cost effective in the long run.


After personally using both devices, I can say that there really is no difference in comfort between the Bathmate and Penomet. They both provide a good bit of suction, but they don’t feel any different.

Money Back Guarantee

As far as the money back guarantee, both the Penomet and Bathmate give you 60 days to try it out. If for any reason whatsoever you’re not completely satisfied, you can simply contact them and send the used pump back to them for a full refund.

Size Gains

The million dollar question of course is which one will give you the bigger size gains.

In my personal experience, I think the Bathmate has a significant advantage here.

Because it already has the strongest suction built in to it, you’ll definitely see faster results.

With faster results, comes bigger results over time.


Both the Penomet and Bathmate work, there’s no denying that.

Most people think the only difference is the price, when this is just simply not the case.

If I were you, I would stick with the Bathmate. It’s the first of it’s kind, they’ve been in business for longer, and I’ve personally seen better results with it.

Of course everyone is different and Penomet may work even better for you, but in my own experience, the Bathmate is a bit of a godsend.
