Review: The Bathmate Goliath Penis Pump

Before I make any suggestions I want to make it abundantly clear that very rarely would I ever support a penis pump as I believe that you have what you were born with and you just need to work with it… however, I also understand that no matter what I say, you will go out and buy a pump anyways… and if your going to do that, you might as well get one that works and is worth the money!

Thanks to the amazing guys at Bathmate I was sent one of their NEW BathMate Goliath pumps (a much larger version than the original) so that I could do a follow up Bathmate penis pump review of a product that I covered last year, the Bathmate Hercules Pump.

After reviewing the Bathmate Hercules Pump (which is the original one) I was messaged quite a bit from my male viewers in regard to their experiences with the product and what they thought of it;

  • About 80% of the reviews that came in said it worked in regard to gaining girth and/or length and/or consistently making them hard. But what surprised me most, was that from all of the positive reviews I received, I continually heard the same things over and over; how easy it was to use, that is was very comfortable, well made, and easy to care for. A lot of the males that messaged me also said that it easily became part of their routine and that they would recommend it to a friend. I will be honest, without their feedback, I might not have been so willing to get my hands on the new Goliath.
  • The other 20% was a combination of messages saying it was too small (so they didn’t use it), it didn’t work as quickly as they hoped so they quit using it, or they just didn’t have the time or commitment to keep up with it to see if it worked.

That said, just like any other product on the market, what might work for one person might not work for another, and in a market flooded with over a million products, it’s to be expected. That in mind, due to its ease and flexibility of use, durability, and following through in delivering results, I will still approve and stand behind it. Yes, I know I’m penisless and therefore can’t make a claim based on personal experience, but I also don’t think it’s a good idea to discredit others who have had positive results.

Bathmate OriginalsMisc Info

The BathMate Goliath Penis Pump is a much larger (in both length and girth) and heavier version of the original BathMate Hercules. As for the stats, Hercules is roughly 11′ inches in length whereas the Goliath is roughly 13′ inches in length, the Hercules is roughly 8′ inches around whereas the Goliath is roughly 10′ inches around.

So, for anyone that is above average in size I would suggest the Goliath, for those that are average or below I would suggest the Hercules. Please keep in mind that just because one of them is bigger it doesn’t mean that it works better. The Goliath works in the exact same way as the original, it’s just made to fit a larger sized penis.

The Good

Like the original Bathmate Hercules, I love this product for quite a few reasons;

  •  you don’t have to buy any extra parts to make it work. What you see is what you get and it’s pretty much all you need.
  • it comes with a full money back guarantee. Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of products on the market (at least in the adult novelty industry) that offer that, so to have a company stand behind their product in that way really does say something.
  • unlike other penis pumps that use a hand held device or a trigger system to create suction, this pump is very, very easy to use and doesn’t have anything frustrating, annoying or tiring about it.
  • constructed of durable Polycarbonate, skin safe rubber, and stainless steel materials, the Bathmate is built to last. (it is also body safe)
  • when used consistently, properly, and on a regular basis, just like working any other muscle in the body, results will be seen. But that’s the whole success of its effectiveness; using it properly and on a regular basis and not going overboard.

Bathmate Penis PumpInstructions

As for using it properly there are three ways to go; in the bath, in the shower or with air.

For use with water:

Once you’re relaxed and feel comfortable fill your Bathmate with water from the tub or shower. Tuck your balls out of the way so that they don’t get accidentally get sucked in and insert your flaccid penis.

*I know some people say they like to use it while erect, personally I think it’s safer to use it when your flaccid so that’s what I suggest.

Once you’re comfortably inside the chamber press the rubber base against your body and give it a few good pumps. Keep doing this until you feel a vacuum from inside. When you can’t pump anymore stop and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. After the directed time is up just press the pressure release valve located on the top to break the suction and you can safely remove it. Pretty simple right?

For use with air:

If you wanted to use the Bathmate with air instead of water, it’s the exact same steps. That said, I have personally seen the best results from someone who used it during the shower and bath, so that’s what I would recommend.

Care & Cleaning

As for cleaning, the company sells accessories to help you keep it clean like a cleaning sponge and handle to get down into the product where you can’t reach and Sterilizing Tablets to help disinfect it. If you don’t want to spend the money on those you can always just wash it with mild soap and water. That however can leave a film or residue on the product so I would suggest antibacterial toy cleaner.


Now there are a few things that you may experience that I’d like to point out just so you’re familiar with them and don’t think there’s something wrong;

  • if you notice that you start to get an erection while you’re using it don’t worry that’s normal and to be expected. You are after all drawing blood into your penis, just like when you get aroused and get an erection.
  • pain does not equal gain. If you notice that it starts to hurt at any time just push the pressure release valve on the top which will break the vacuum seal and allow you to safely and comfortably remove it.
  • if you notice that the vacuum is not quite as strong (which usually happens after 5-7 minutes) just give it another pump to release more water and allow for a greater suction.
  • if you notice that water squirts from the top while you pump don’t be alarmed, it’s supposed to do that.

Bathmate Penis Pump - GoliathExperiences & Results

In regard to the actual gains a person can expect; I gave 2 Bathmate Hercules pumps to 2 different friends and had another friend use the Bathmate Goliath.

Hercules users:

The first person said that every time he used the Hercules he got rock hard erections and because of that, never used it for anything but intercourse. He said he tried to use it daily but since he was happy with his size he didn’t really care to see any special results. When I asked him if he would recommend it he said yes, but that he couldn’t offer input on size gain, only erections, since that was what he liked about it and used it for.

The second person, who also used the original Hercules pump, used it daily for the directed amount of time (which is 15 – 20 minutes) and after 5 months said he noticed he was roughly an inch longer. He said that it was easy enough to use and very conveniently became part of his morning routine. While his results were pretty good, you have to keep in mind that he used it daily, put in the time and used it properly. Other than the size difference, he also said he was able to achieve harder erections both when he was aroused and during intercourse.

Goliath user:

The third person (who used the Goliath) used it roughly every 2 days for only 10 minutes and said that at the end of 2 months he noticed a difference in girth, as well as rock hard erections, but only a very small difference in length. He said that he enjoyed the way it felt and used it on a few occasions as a masturbation device. When I asked him if he would recommend it he said yes, but that he would have rather used the original Hercules pump, as he found the Goliath to be a bit large for him and therefor a little bulky.

Overall experiences:

That said, the pump is going to work differently for different people and if you want to see lasting results you have to treat it the same way you would weight lifting or exercising;  if you go to the gym once you can’t expect to see big muscles or lasting results, you have to go everyday, be dedicated, and know what your doing so that you do it properly and can get the results you want.

Contrary to what most companies would have you believe, penis pumps aren’t a one time magical cure that’s going to solve your problems over night… it takes work, time and dedication. Remember that.


As for any precautions you should take:

  • if you are under the age of full development I DO NOT suggest that you use this product as your body is still growing and stretching.
  • this is not a cure or a treatment.
  • although this is a safe product, you should make sure that you follow the instructions carefully.
  • it should be stored and kept away from children.
  • consult your doctor before using the product if you suffer from any physical penile conditions.
  • Do not use if you have recently had surgery in this area or if you suffer any discomfort prior or after first use.”

Final Verdict

In my personal opinion, I think it’s a great product for those who are having problems achieving an erection or maintaining one, more so then for those that want help when it comes to gaining in size. I do realize that the company would rather sell it as a size increasing product but hearing male after male tell me that it was great for achieving erections, hard ones at that, why fight it?

For those of you that are interested in purchasing any of the Bathmate line of products you can do so safely either through (my online store) or the Bathmate website.
