Hahaha ok sorry, but this thing is crazy looking! Of course I knew what it would look like but it's definitely bigger than I thought, which is a good thing. So, the packaging is very plain and almost medical feeling. I guess this isn't a bad thing as I know people use these for ED or enlargement hopes, so I guess that will help avoid feeling kinky. It didn't come with instructions and the picture wasn't super clear on where to put the black gasket that makes the suction happen. After some finagling, I figured it out. Over all, it's pretty easy to put together though.
I was curious about pumps, not for ED or enlargement, but for going multiple times faster. I know for me going flaccid after ejaculating can happen quickly sometimes when you're not ready. I was thinking this could be a great way to get ready and let the stimulation after I'm hard again take over. I was right! This definitely helped get me ready for a second round pretty dang quickly, so I'm happy with that.
So, design... It has a pistol grip to make it super easy and comfortable to pump it up (pun intended). It also has a valve release that lets airs pressure equalize but doesn't do it super quickly. This can be a good or bad thing. You want to be wary of putting too much strain on your member as it can pop vessels or other things to cause damage, some could be serious. The good thing about it being slow is that you can better control pressure of you just got it a little too high without releasing all pressure.
The suction is designed well. Basically you put on this black gasket that has a hole large enough and stretchy enough for you to slide through when you start squeezing the pistol grip (use lube!) It doesn't take many squeezes before it sucks you right in and up! It does feel kinda weird having an erection that way because you don't have to be turned on, you just are hard. Overall, it was way different than I expected in feel but I enjoyed the experience and I'll definitely be using it for some marathon nights with my lovely wife.
I would definitely suggest this as a starter pump if you're interested in this kind of toy, the price point is low enough but high enough that the quality is good. Oh yeah, side note. The ribs inside the sleeve didn't really do anything at all for me but I also wasn't worried about it being a masturbator so that didn't have an impact on my review. If you're looking for something to pump and get you off I would say to look toward maybe a vibrating pump.
