Bathmate Hydromax Review And Results – 8 Year Update

Bathmate Review

Bathmate Hydromax X30 Pump

I’m sure you’ve seen ads on porn websites for random “sexual aid” products for sale, as well as in magazines, on infomercials, and in internet pop ups.

All of those products being shoved down your throat are completely useless, and that is what has essentially tainted the male enhancement industry.

There are so many products for sale that are just blatant rip offs that do nothing that the entire industry as a whole has been written off by many individuals.

However, there are a few products that DO in fact work, and they work VERY well.

In fact, they can add several inches in overall penis size (length + girth) if used correctly.

One of those (if not the best one) is the Bathmate.

Read This Before You Buy A Bathmate

If you are interested in learning more about this device first (highly recommended), the following guest post written by my good friend Chris Deoudes from Good Looking Loser contains legitimate, provable information, with several unbiased Bathmate reviews describing in great detail EXACTLY what to expect.

He literally has almost a decade of PE under his belt now (no pun intended), and his Bathmate review will be the most accurate one you will find on the internet by far.

He details:

    • Manual exercises vs Bathmate (as well as coupled together)
    • The best PE routine for length and/or girth
    • How to approach PE in general
    • How to get a bigger Penis without devices or pumps (if you're strapped for cash you can still get amazing gains without any devices at all)
    • Several extremely detailed Bathmate reviews and Bathmate results stories, along with links to where you can find plenty of other unbiased Bathmate before and after user testimonials
    • Pictures and videos of his Bathmate results and helpful tips linked from here for you to see for reference (NSFW)

Without further ado –

How to Increase Your Penis Size
(All About Male Enhancement that ACTUALLY Works)

Welcome to Good Looking Loser.

I'm going to give you a quick rundown of ‘Male Enhancement' (What Actually Works to Make Your Dick Bigger), what is realistic, what works, what doesn't and a simple way to do it and keep your gains without committing huge blocks of time.

Does “Penis Enhancement” (PE) Actually Work?


Some of it does.

Despite the reputation of this scam-infested industry a handful of things that DO WORK.

The rest of the industry is largely a scam however.

Case in point –

We'll cover what DOES WORK and what you can reasonably expect if you commit to a routine.

What Are Realistic Expectations?
(How Much Can I Really Increase My Penis Size If I Do This?)

Realistically –

If you use my suggestions, you can gain expect to naturally gain 1 or 2 inches (and .5 – 1.5 inches in girth).

Most guys who take the exercises fairly seriously for 12 to 18 months can gain 1 to 1.5 inches – regardless of starting size.

About .05 to .10 inches a month.

Those who go the extra mile can gain 1.5-2 inches.

If you are starting with a well-grown 8 inch cock, you can gain upwards of 2 inches since their is so much untrained tissue to work with.

But ignore the sleazy exaggerated marketing claims –

Gain 4 inches on your penis in 4 weeks!

IT TAKES TIME and 4 or 5 inches of growth is absolutely not realistic.

But you can gain 1 or 2 inches.

Newbies will gain quickly.

The first inch is fairly easy, the second is harder.

But it definitely DOES WORK if you are serious about it.

Are Bathmate Size Gains Permanent Or Is It Temporary (Or PE Gains In General)?
(Will My Results Go Away If I Stop Doing the Exercises?)

Good question.

The answer is yes and no.

If you COMPLETELY stop training, you will lose about 50% of your gains.
(mainly progress beyond 1″ inches)

You will NOT all lose your gains.

Maintaining your size gains isn't very hard though –

If you train just 1 time week for 10 or 12 minutes, you will keep about 70% of your gains.

If you train 1 or 2 times a week for 10 or 12 minutes, you will keep about 95% of your gains.

It's somewhat like weightlifting – you need to make an effort get bigger and stronger, but maintaining your gains requires far less effort.

I will discuss that that “bare minimum” maintenance effort later.

If your question is –

Is male enhancement worth it?

I think so.

I started at 5.25″ and broke 7.2″ with very significant girth.

These days, I only train 1 or 2 times for 10 minutes every 10 days and I'm still 7″ and have kept most of the girth too.

So What Really Works to Increase Penis Size?

Newbies should become familiar with the “Big 3” –

There's some more advanced exercises and devices (like the Phallosan Forte), but jelqing, stretching, and the Bathmate Hydropump are all you need to hear about right now.

Combining these 3, you can almost certainly gain over 1 inch in a year (or sooner) if you train 4 or 5 days a week.

Jelqing (Girth & Length Exercise)

Jelqing is a largely considered a girth exercise, but will help with length exercise until you gain your first inch.

Jelqing alone basically got me close to my first inch.

Stretching (Length Exercise)

Stretching is solely a length exercise and is a mandatory part if you want to gain length quickly or gain in excess of 1 inch.

If length is your goal, you should be doing these stretches.

Bathmate Hydropump (Girth & Length)

This one is great.

The Bathmate Hydropump is the world's most effective (and fun) PE device that will add both length and girth to your penis.

Bathmate was the very first product I ever recommended to our community and is much apart of Good Looking Loser as I am.

Have a look at the independent user progress in our Bathmate forum.

There are tons of Bathmate reviews in that forum, and none of them have financial incentive behind them (important).

Don't just take my word for it, I encourage you to go checkout our forum and read through all of the positive, neutral, and negative reviews you can find.

The thing actually works, but you need to see that there are others actually getting results from this thing too.

There's nothing worse than buying something and then wondering if you've just been scammed by a smooth talking internet marketer.

Bathmate keeps the process fun, immediately pumps up your penis for sex (partner will absolutely notice and appreciate your added size) and slowly but surely – adds permanent size over many months.

After the first 30 days, use the Bathmate 5 days a week with a full erection for 12-15 minutes.

Just stick the thing on anytime you shower and you dick will look significantly fuller temporary and permanently after 3 or 4 months.

What If I Don't Have the Time or Desire to Do the Exercises?
(Can I Just Use the Bathmate and Gain 1 to 2 Inches?)

Yes, you can skip the manual exercises and just use the Bathmate.

The combination of jelqing, manual stretching and Bathmate is just the fastest way to gain size.

You can use Bathmate as a standalone and get solid results.

I can't make any guarantees, but gaining .5″+ in your first 6 months and over 1″ in 12 months is days a week is realistic if you are new to PE and only use the Bathmate.
(you will also gain .5-1″ in permanent girth during this time)

No jelqing or stretching required.

Gaining 2 inches or more, however, generally requires a commitment to stretching or length devices.

Most of these reviews are from guys only using the Bathmate –

In 2010, as a manual PE veteran, I wore the Bathmate for 10-12 minutes, 3-4 days a week and grew about .5″ in length (I had already grown .5-.75″ from manual exercises) and nearly 1 inch in girth.

You don't need the Bathmate to gain size.

If you don't have the money, don't buy it.

At the same time –

You don't need to do the manual exercises to gain considerable size if you use the Bathmate.

If I had to pick between manual exercises or the Bathmate, I would pick Bathmate because it does the same thing, only faster. The immediate post-Bathmate pump will can do big things for you sex life too.

These days, I only use the Bathmate a few days a week for maintenance and before intercourse.

Bathmate is my #1 recommendation for Male Enhancement because it only requires a very small time commitment, it's super fun to use and it works long-term if you actually commit to using it.

But again –

You can gain 1 or 2 inches.

Probably somewhere in-between.

But not 5 inches like others will tell you.

Here's a routine if you are only using the Bathmate –

Bathmate Hydromax Size Guide

How to Combine Jelqing, Stretching and the Bathmate Hydropump (Big 3)

I'm going to keep this as simple as possible.

Male Enhancement is not rocket science.

If you safely train and fatigue your penile tissue (and let it recover) on a daily basis, it will become bigger and stronger.

Although the composition of penile tissue isn't completely identical to smooth muscle tissue – it's just like going to the gym.

Train and get adequate rest – you will grow.

As a rule of thumb –

If you can't get a good erection (~90%), take the day off.

Remember –

Like the gym, your gains come when you RECOVER, not when you are training.

If you are a total newbie to Male Enhancement, you'll want to use the first 30 days to get your penile tissue used to the training. Focus on that.

If you plan to combine Bathmate and manual exercise, follow this routine –

Notice that you are not Jelqing/Stretching and Bathmate on the same day.

After 30 days, you can combine the 3 on the same day.

Just do a little more each week or take it to the next level by Jelqing just prior to your Bathmate workouts. (6+ month experience only)

Bathmate Review After 3 months

In this Bathmate Review, the guy gained almost a full inch in 3 months only using a Bathmate.
It's possible.
I choose to give a more conservative estimate (1 inch in 6-12 months).

What Is the Most Important Thing to Remember?

PE is a marathon, not a sprint.

Daily consistency is the key to getting bigger.


Every Jelq.

Every Stretch.

Every minute in the Bathmate.

You'll grow if you train consistently (3-5 days/week) and allow adequate recovery.

You won't if you don't.

On a final note –

Losing weight can help you gain size as well.

For every inch you lose off your waist, your dick will measure .05″ to .10″ longer.

That's why virtually all the super hung guys you see in porn have beanpole physiques.

If you have 20 or 30 pounds to lose, you will probably gain about .25″ to .5″ length.

Bathmate Review After 2 months Using The Bathmate X30 Xtreme Model

This guy's Bathmate results are a bit more representative in my opinion.
1/4″ in 2 months.
He is well on his way to 1″ in 6-12 months.

Pour Conclure

Male enhancement actually works.

The exercises and the product I mentioned.

The industry has a rotten reputation because the vast majority of marketing over-promises and the products (especially “pills”) do absolutely nothing.

It's important to have realistic expectations though.

You can gain 1 to 2 inches if you make a year-long commitment.

If you have weight to lose or are already natural hung, you can possibly exceed 1 or 2 inches.
(likely after a year)

Like natural bodybuilding, genetic ceilings exist.

A small dick can become an average dick.

An average dick can become a big dick.

A big dick can become a huge dick.

A huge dick probably doesn't need to be doing this.

27 thoughts on “Bathmate Hydromax Review And Results – 8 Year Update”

  1. Do you also use the legitimate extenders as well like those referenced on Good Looking Loser? If so what are your thoughts of using them inconjunction with a Bathmate? Overkill?

    1. I’ve used a few extenders, including the Phallosan Forte (my preferred extender) and they definitely work.

      Bathmate I feel excels in adding girth, while the extenders are primarily geared towards gaining length. Combining them both, as well as manual exercises is the ultimate combo for maxing out overall size in my opinion.

  2. Will the results be permanent? The phallosan results said they would be, while good looking loser’s review said the bathmate results would go away if you quit training

    1. In general, treat this like working out. “Use it or lose it” is the expression that applies here. Once you have achieved your gains, you can’t just quit everything forever and expect to maintain it all, just like working out. However, you can use a much less time intensive/demanding program to maintain what you have, thus making it “permanent”, but at the end of the day, you can’t just gain a couple inches, and then never do PE ever again and expect to maintain everything, you will lose some of it if you don’t have some sort of maintenance regimen in place.

  3. Will SARMS like Ostarine or PPAR agent like Andarine help with penis growth due to its anabolic effect to stimulate growth and because it promotes healing of collagen type structures ie tendons, joints etc?. Stretching the collagen fibrils might cause some damage and then stimulate some kind of growth especially with an anabolic agent during the healing phase? I saw one topical product made with a DHT type steroid. I know this is not SARMS but they claim that worked really well.

      1. I wouldn’t say you need to go full no-fap mode, but after you bust a nut you will end up turtling, which is the opposite of what you want when you are trying to make progress.

    1. I ran Derek’s CJC-1295 and MK-677 protocol, which can produce a modest amount of HGH release, and noticed significantly faster pe results.

  4. Do you maybe have a more advanced program as I am at 3 months on the basic stretching jelq and hanging and only got my bath mate 2 weeks ago.
    So I stretch for 5min then hang for 10min then bathmate and then just some jelqs for 5 min after the bathmate. Is that to much or am I on the right track? I only measure every six months.

    1. Check out Chris’ page I linked in the routines section. He has lots of advanced training on his site.

  5. I’m an older married guy with a wife who has lost interest in sex so we don’t do it that often.I bought a Bathmate HydroMax Xtreme because I could visibly see my penis was shrinking with age and I wasn’t ready to give it up yet, the results have been quite impressive. I secretly was using it for about two months when we were looking for something in the closet and she found it, when I told her what it was for she said “so that’s why you’re so much bigger”. Fast forward 6 months later and as I’m starting to slide it in she stops me and says “slow down….I feel like I’m a virgin again!” Besides the 1″ or so gain in length and increase in girth, I now feel hornier, I get much harder, my orgasms feel more intense and I shoot farther than I have in 30 yrs. A tip on routines, I’ve tried many that I saw in the forums, some downright dangerous others minimally effective. The one that seems to work best for me is:
    (Use the stopwatch on your phone to time it and every couple minutes gently increase the vacuum as long as you don’t feel any sharp pain.)
    5 min in the BM with warm water and minimal pressure to warmup
    5 min. slow jelq
    10 min BM moderate vacuum
    5 min slow jelq
    10 min BM slightly increased vacuum
    5 min slow jelq
    10 mi BM slightly increased vacuum, last couple minutes an extra pump
    5 min slow jelq
    This way you can gradually work your way up to a decent vacuum without wrecking your dick and getting those red spots or turning it dark, which is scary.
    BTW, I’ve never yet maxed out the pressure on my HM Xtreme

  6. Thoughts on chemical PE (without injections)? I currently have my hands on liquid dmso and iodine and I’m combining that with pumping and the newbie routine.

    1. I have no idea what DMSO and Iodine could do to enhance PE. I’d focus on vasodilation, abstaining from jerking off, optimizing bioavailable androgen:estrogen ratio, stretching, jelqing, and pumping. That’s all I’d focus on.

  7. Derek is it a bad idea to do these exercises in a caloric deficit?

    i want to start but am also about to start cutting. i want to know if it would be better to wait until i am no longer in a caloric deficit before i start doing this, or if being in a deficit will hinder my gains.

  8. I’m about to run my first baby “cycle” of MK677, and GW, would it help With Jelqing and stretch only, no pump Better results faster?

  9. Would using peptides tb-500 and bpc-157 both known for increasing tissue flexibility and recovery rate go well with PE. You seem the perfect person to ask as you know your pharmaceuticals and will openly talk about PE

  10. Hi Derek, is it bad, or can i see the same gains from leaving the bathmate on for the entirety of the 15 minute session, or should i always release and then reapply? thank yoy

  11. So if 1-2″ can be gained in a year or two, and this “8 year update” was three years ago, are you saying you’re sitting at total gains of 8 to 11 inches, bro? Just asking what everyone’s thinking…death star delts and a skywalker lightsaber, eh? Set us up with those bone-pressed stats, homey.

  12. Does the Hydromax really work better than the traditional Bathmate Hydro and would you recommend the Hydromax over the basic Hydro? Is claims 35% more effective. Appreciate your knowledge and sharing all of these things with us dudes who want to be maxxed out in every way possible!

  13. How long should one abstain from jerking off ? Should one also abstain from having sex? Is the cumming that one should avoid? Thanks Derek ?

  14. I get a sort of “water retention” or “inflation” around the external urethral opening (where pee goes out) after I’ve used the bathmate, but fortunately, it goes away after a few hours. Has anyone experience the same thing, and does anyone know if its harmful or if it would get worse with continuous use?
