Do penis pumps work when you want to fix a bent penis caused by Peyronies disease?

Kinda, sorta,... not really.

There is some indication that they have been moderately useful.

But, when you have a horrible bend, you don’t want to kinda make it a little straighter. Right? You want to straighten the darn thing out and have a normal sex life again. Am I correct?

What Is
Penis Pump?

“Penis Pump” is the common name for a vacuum erectile device, VED.

Why is it called a vacuum erectile device?

Because, a vacuum is formed around the penile shaft. This vacuum decreases the normal atmospheric pressure around the shaft and causes the natural internal blood pressure to flow into the shaft and create a “manufactured erection”.

how do penis pumps work?

It’s actually a very simple device.

How does it create the vacuum? A small air pump is used to suck the air out of the tube that surrounds the shaft and this causes the vacuum.

Do they work? Yes. They will create a semi rigid erection. Not as good as a real healthy one. But, one that is good enough for intercourse. For a certain category of men, this is a very useful device.

Now, do penis pumps work? Let’s take a look at what they can do and the men who can benefit from their use.

Can a Penis Pump Do?

Do penis pumps work? Yes. If you’re using them for what they are good for. What can they do? They can create an erection.

Here’s what a penis pump can do effectively:

It can cause an erection in an impotent man. An erection that is rigid enough for intercourse. For these men, a VED can seem like a gift from God.

If, on the other hand, you’re not having any problem with erectile function, you don’t need one of these.

Who Can Benefit
Using One?

Any man who can not get his own natural erection
may benefit from the use of a penis pump
the erection they can create
without the use of risky erectile medications.

If you are a man with a serious health condition, such as advanced diabetes or heart disease, that is making erections impossible, a penis pump may be all you need to get back in the sack. No risky drugs or irreversible may be necessary for you to resume a happy rather normal sex life.

Will they work for you? Probably. You'll have to try one out to see.

Which Diseases and Conditions
can cause
Erectile Dysfunction?

Besides diabetes and heart disease, there are numerous other diseases/conditions that can cause chronic ED.

These include and are not limited to:

  • Clogged blood vessels (atherosclerosis)

  • High cholesterol

  • High blood pressure

  • Obesity

  • Metabolic syndrome —(a condition involving increased blood pressure, high insulin levels, body fat around the waist and high cholesterol)

  • Parkinson's disease

  • Multiple sclerosis

  • Certain prescription medications

  • Tobacco use

  • Alcoholism and other forms of substance abuse

  • Sleep disorders

  • Treatments for prostate cancer or enlarged prostate

  • Surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord

  • And, of course: Peyronie's disease — development of scar tissue inside the penis

Do penis pumps work for ED caused by these conditions? Usually, yes.

What About
Psychological Causes


Erectile Dysfunction?

“The brain plays a key role in triggering the series of physical events that cause an erection, starting with feelings of sexual excitement. A number of things can interfere with sexual feelings and cause or worsen erectile dysfunction. These include:

 >  Depression, anxiety or other mental health conditions

 >  Stress

 >  Relationship problems due to stress, poor communication or other concerns”

reference:  “Erectile Dysfunction”, Mayo Clinic

Do penis pumps work here? Again, yes, they can.

Penis Pumps Can Be
Safest ED Remedy

In our way of thinking, using a VED to achieve a usable erection beats stimulant drugs, implants, or any other drastic measure that could cause even more serious problems down the road.

Do penis pumps work? Yes.

A VED can cause a very usable erection for many men with erectile problems. A simple cock ring will hold that erection for as much as 30 minutes. And, a decent regular sex life can be had.

No, surgery, no injections, no dangerous erectile dysfunction medications, etc....

If you have chronic, maybe irreversible ED, would you rather be on sexual stimulants that could cause a heart attack and other possible serious health problems? Or, would you prefer to use a simple mechanical pump that is outside of your body?

Penis Pumps
Penile Implants

A lot of men who opted for a penile implant may have avoided that surgery completely by simply using a high quality penis pump.

The difference is:

With a Pump you are using an external device. No surgery is used.

With an Implant, you have a major surgery, the entire mechanism is implanted in your body, you will never be able to get a normal erection again. Ever.

Now let's take a look at the difference in cost:

Penile Implant:

The cost? It can range from $10,000 - $50,000 with an average of about $20,000.

Vacuum Erectile Device (Penis Pump):

how do penis pumps work, bent penis

The cost? About $16 - $400

For one with a gauge, you’ll be in the $50+ range.

With a pump there is no surgery, no medications are needed.

Now, if you have chronic incurable ED, doesn’t it at least make sense to try a pump before undergoing a $20,000 irreversible surgery?

Do penis pumps work instead of implant surgery? Many times, yes.

Do Penis Pumps Work
Straightening A Bent Penis?

They can. Somewhat. But, for all practical purposes we say no.


Just because a VED will take so darn long to get results and most men will quit using them. Or, they get a penile injury and are forced to stop using them before they get good usable results.

Do penis pumps work to fix a bent penis? They can. BUT, they usually don't. Simply because they take too long to get results and most men will quit using them before they are decently straight.

The Clinical Tests:

In the clinical tests, penis pumps take twice as long as traction devices to straighten a bend. They also, will not straighten it noticeably once a certain curve is reached.

“Both the PTT (penis traction therapy) and VED (vacuum erectile device/penis pump) groups had reduced penile curvature at 8 weeks compared with measurements at week 4 and control group at week 8. Penile curvature was reduced by 65% in the PTT (penis traction) group and by 33% in the VED (penis pump) group.”

reference:  “Nonsurgical Peyronie’s Treatments Compared”, Renal and Urological News

Can you use a penis pump for straightening?

Yes. If you don’t mind spending two years using the thing and never getting really straight. Yes, two years.

A traction device will normally take 6+ months to give good straightening results. That’s quite a dedication on it’s own. When you start asking a man to spend two years on the process... well, as my New York friends might say: “Forget about it.”

As you just read in the quote from “Renal and Urological News”, the straightening time will double using a VED (vacuum erectile device) vs a traction device.

Another bit of information that you have not yet read is: The straighter the shaft gets, the less effective a pump becomes.

Do penis pumps work eventually? Maybe. But, why waste so much time and effort?

Our advice: If you need penis straightening, forget about using a penis pump. PTT (penis traction therapy) has proven to be twice as effective as any VED available. And, PTT comes with none of the risks of a surgery or injections.

That is why PTT is rated as the #1 Safest and Most Effective medically endorsed and doctor recommended method in the world for bent penis straightening.

Do Penis Pumps Work
A Sex Toy?

Yes. In fact: This is where most of these devices are used. As sex toys.

Although penis pumps can be a great aid and a wonderful erectile device for men with chronic erectile dysfunction, another use for penis pumps is as a sex toy. And, that is the reason most men (primarily young men) buy them.

Do penis pumps work as a sex toy?


They puff up your penis. It’s fun.

But, make no mistake, for the man with incurable erectile dysfunction they can be the very best and very safest means of achieving a usable erection.

What Are The Risks
of Using a
Vacuum Erectile Device?

Do penis pumps work? Yes.

Are there any risk with using one?

Yes. Terrible ones.

You have to use a VED with a certain amount of caution or you can cause severe blood vessel damage in your shaft.

Our shafts are much more delicate than most of us think they are.

When they are flaccid (soft, limp) they can take a lot of abuse. That was Nature’s design to protect the sexual mechanism.

Ours cocks were only really designed for intercourse. You don’t really need a cock for anything else. Yes, it’s real convenient when we need to pee. And, probably our most fun toy as boys. But, that’s not why we have a penis. Successful intercourse was Nature’s only intent.

So, we have a soft flaccid penis and when we are in the mood, we get erections.

Why don’t we have a constant erection so we can just copulate whenever we want?

Good question.

Here’s the reason:  Erections, as hard as they can be, are delicate. They don’t seem like it when they feel like solid steel. But, yes, they are delicate. They were not designed to bend at all. They can easily be broken.

It’s called a penile fracture, or, broken penis. The “break” is really just a tear. There are no bones in the shaft.

A broken penis is a medical emergency. If you bend your erection, even a little bit, it will tear inside.

can penis pumps cause a broken penis?

If you don’t get the tear properly treated, immediately, and it is too serious, the shaft may decay (rot) and need to be amputated if you don’t wish to die. Yes, die.

So, to protect her males, Mother Nature keeps our rods soft until there is sexual stimulation (desire). Pretty smart. Right?


If you even suspect you may have broken your penis, get to a medical emergency room immediately.

What is The Best
Penis Pump?

Now, if a VED is something you want to try out, let’s get back to buying a pump. A pump that will not injure you if you use it correctly.

Do penis pumps work safely? They can. Here's what you need to know:

You want to be sure the pump has a safety pressure gauge. Don’t buy one that has no safety gauge. A lot of them come without this gauge because they are cheaper to make and can be sold for less to the uneducated buyer.

Here is a typical example of what both kinds look like. Those with a gauge. Those without a gauge.

do penis pumps work with no gauge?Penis Pump WITHOUT a Gauge

Penis Pump WITH a Gauge

Under no circumstances should you ever buy a
pump without a gauge.

The better the pump, the stronger it will be. The more possibility you have for penile damage if you keep pumping without controlling the vacuum pressure (not using a gauge).

Without a gauge you can easily pop your blood vessels and cause yourself sexual damage that can cause sexual problems for the rest of your life.

With a gauge, however, you can measure what is going on in the pump. How much vacuum is created. The gauge will help you keep from causing too much of a vacuum and breaking your blood vessels. Still, you need to use it prudently. And, correctly.

If your pump has a gauge, you need to pay attention to it. If you don’t use it, it will do you no good. That may sound like a stupid statement for the mentally inept, but, it is not. The gauges are not automatic. They are just gauges. Not pressure controls.

Make sense?

Do penis pumps work? Yes. If you use them correctly and safely.

Will a Penis Pump
Work for You?

In this article we tried to let you know exactly what a VED (penis pump) can do and who will benefit from using one.

Only you know exactly what your personal situation is. And, you can now easily make an educated decision as to whether a VED is right for what you want to accomplish.You also now know how to pick one that you can enjoy safely.

Do Penis Pumps Work?

Yes, they work. To create a manufactured erection.

Do they work to fix a bent penis? Kind of. Sort of. A little.... Not really.

Forget about them if you are seriously trying to fix a bent penis and make it straight again. Just forget them. They will frustrate you beyond belief.

For serious penis straightening, without surgery, injections, or drugs, PTT (penis traction therapy) has proven to be the Safest and Most Effective medically endorsed and doctor recommended method.
