Bathmate VS Penomet Comparison and Review

A very large penis size may have nothing more to do with sexual satisfaction than an average sized penis. However, both men and women tend to associate it with greater masculinity and self-esteem. It has been studied that even men with an average-sized penis are not fully confident about their manhood.

As a result, the market is flooded with products designed for enhancing penis size. If you have been suffering the insecurity of having a small penis size, you may want to give a thought about using the penis pumps. However, there are a number of similar products claiming to be the best. This review compares two of the best products in the category – Bathmate and Penomet.

Bathmate and Penomet pumps, both are designed as a solution for erectile dysfunction in men. Both belong to the best quality pumps available in the market and claim to deliver excellent results in men suffering from poor erection and low stamina in bed. These pumps instantly enlarge the penis size and give permanent results on long-term use.

However, the two products are slightly different when it comes to various features and specifications. Even the results tend to vary slightly from one product to the other. The comparison featured in this article is based on the Penomet Premium Package and Bathmate X40, two of the most popular products from the Penomet and Bathmate respectively.



The Bathmate X40 comes in a decent size. It uses water for creating the vacuum and can hold up to 23 oz of water for creating the required pressure. The tube can accommodate erect penis measuring up to 8.5 inches long and 2.2 inches thick.
