    I am new to this. Is it safe over long periods or not? Accounts of long term use for better or worse would be good. I know the immediate effects are temp. but what of the repeated temp. effects? I am currently using an electric pump occasionally. No probs so far but is there a long term risk?

    Hey everyone,

    I am new to the site as well. I was reading some of the threads that have been posted, and most people say that a pump is the way to go to "beef" up some. My question is what do you look for in a pump? Anyone got any particular brand or special features that they can recommend I look for when going to buy one. Thanks.

    I like Penis Enlargement Vacuum Pumps by VacuTech
    Their cylinders are a bit better quality, although LA Pump Works is good too.

    Flared Cylinders are for beginners. Theyre an entry level comfort zone that gets men into the game.
    Thick Wall cylinders are for hanging a decent amount of weight to stretch your suspentianatory ligamet out, in addition to pulling down on your cock while in the pump.

    Measure Measure Measure - VacuTech sizes tend to run one size large, but it will depend on peronal taste. Size of your tube is critical for success.

    Risks: If you over pump, you may permanently damage the valves that allow blood in and out of your cock.
    Never go over 5mm/hg of vacuum with your pump.
    I've been pumping since 18, off and on. I can still achieve an erection on my own.

    A full review of this section of the forum would answer many of your questions.
    It's only as safe as you make it.

    Like most practices done outside the guide lines there are risks attached to pumping, but inside you are perfectly safe. I've been pumping for over thirty years without any issues other than occasionally early on, when over doing things, I developed some water blisters. If you're just starting I would would point out there are the cheap 'one size fits all' type of cylinder and the more expensive thicker walled and varying in size type. I personally use the thickwall because, although more expensive, they last a life time, usually have a standard valve that most types of pump will fit and because they come in different sizes you can control how you cock develops. Apart from that, you shold only be looking, as a beginner, for a cylinder 1/4" bigger in diameter than your cock and the chepos are normally too big. For pumps, you shold be looking at somthing with a gauge.

    There is no such thing in PE as the words "without risk". There are many variables and as such no manner in which to predict what will injure whom.

    Now, all of that being said:

    The main idea here is common sense. Good equipment, correctly sized tubes/cylinders, knowledge of and timing of rest periods to re-oxygenate the tissues between pumping periods.

    The main thing to remember is to refrain from pumping after taking certain medications that would thin your blood and anything that could under any circumstance impair sensation or judgment. Remember that aspirin is a blood thinner.

    Considering the number of people doing it injuries are not common, but they do happen. The greatest danger is relating to tissue oxygenation.

    The following Information is VERY important for those considering pumping:

    The Hazards of Pumping

    1).You can wreck havoc on the delicate capillaries that line the tissue of the inner foreskin actually bursting and destroying these tiny blood vessels. The previous post mentioned oxygen deprivation which can also destroy these capillaries by starving them of their rich blood supply.

    2). The skin can be damaged by the vacuum pressure the same way that people in hospitals can suffer from bed sores. Pressure sores are crippling to a vacuum pumping routine because they take a while to heal, interrupting the incremental growth process.

    3). Water blisters can form on the glans and (God forbid) the inner foreskin... these little buggers are EXTREMELY difficult to avoid once you get a few.

    Cold applied to the sight where the water blister usually appears during breaks in the routine, is the only remedy for this pugnacious and pernicious pitfall of pumping. The other hazards can be avoided by using a pump with a gauge and watching the clock. There are many different methods for maintaining circulation during your stay in the tube, find one that works best for you 'cause it is important to maintaining the integrity of your capillaries.

    Keep the tube warm at all times and do not ever enter a cold cylinder.

    Drink plenty of fluids (an extra glass of fluid per hour of pumping should do the trick)

    Slather the penis with lotion or the moisturizer of your choice. A pumped penis is MUCH more prone to drying out than normal skin... if the skin of the penis gets dry, you are screwed, no pumping will take place that day or the next, until the skin is re-hydrated and it's integrity is once again maintained.

    Good Luck

    Good points about heat, about hydration, and about moisturizing. I don't remember to mention those nearly enough.

    Well of course you’re right, I should have been more circumspect with my choice of words. Of course pumping carries risks. The same as eating and drinking does, especially if you over indulge, or if what you swallow is over a certain temperate! Likewise, driving into brick walls isn’t very healthy. In fact the faster you drive the more chance of it becoming fatal! Even getting out of bed carries risk and the further through the day one get the riskier it can be. However, if one exercises common sense in what one dose then it’s only the unexpected that will generally cause one problems. I suppose my biggest down fall is giving adults credence for having common sense, but yes, you're right; pumping can be risky.

    The following information is for people with Diabetes:

    People with Diabetics in their family need special instructions. If you are a Diabetic or harbor the Type-2 gene within your genetic code then pumping will be much more difficult and you will have to be extra careful. Diabetes destroys one's vascular system over time. The elevated blood sugar causes nicks in your vessel walls that in time lead to cardiovascular diseases of all sorts (hypertension, stroke, heart attack). People with Diabetes have poor feet and hand circulation and... you guessed it, POOR GENITAL CIRCULATION. Most of the Viagra, Cialis and Levitra sold in the world is consumed by men with either Diabetes or Type-2 Diabetes.

    Pumping with Diabetes is soooo much more risky than people who do not have the disease. Diabetic pumpers have an increased risk of damaging the capillaries of the inner foreskin as well as an increased risk of water blisters... most will notice that the skin of the penis damages much more quickly also. Not only are Diabetics at an increased risk of damaging their blood vessels and tissue, they are slower to heal as well.

    Do you have a grandparent with Diabetes? If you do, then you probably harbor the Type-2 gene. If you have a parent, Aunt or Uncle who is Diabetic then you DEFINITELY have the gene. There are many factors which can accelerate the instance of full blown Diabetes in Type-2 people and on the other hand there are other factors that can slow it's development. Being overweight is a death sentence for those with the Type-2 gene, it is basically the path to Diabetes for them. So, those who have a family history of Diabetes and are overweight... pumping can provide significant risks to the health of one's penis.

    What to do?


    Well, patience and an unenthusiastic approach are both needed. Patience you say? You will need to go much slower and pump lighter and less frequently. You will have to watch that gauge like a hawk and never pump above 6 inches of mercury. You will have to take breaks more frequently and apply cold to the head of the penis (for around 30 seconds)to prevent water blisters from forming. You will need a medicated wonder ointment like Carmex to apply to the inner foreskin to keep it moisturized and protected.

    Dampening down the enthusiasm is necessary to not overpump, once you see your cock growing and get used to a bit more size, you will need to gather all of your forces to chill out and not go for even more size too fast. Once you pack the tube... go ahead and get out, staying in the tube too long after you've packed it increases the chances of a water blister forming by nearly 70%, so watch it. If you do get a blister, pop that mofo with a sterilized needle (alcohol is fine, get the 90%) and apply cold and then Carmex on the site of the blister. Check it every hour or so and re-pop it with the needle and repeat the cold and Carmex. You can also crush up an aspirin and apply the powder to the blister and then cover it with Carmex to seal it. Dryness and the friction from rubbing against fabric is horrible for blisters, so get some tight briefs and pack up your cock with it's moisturizer on. You will get moisturizer all over your briefs, but your cock will stay hydrated and healthy.

    If you are a Diabetic pumper, PM me and I can give you an extra tip that can save your blood vessels from damage.

    Also get a pump with a gauge and try not to over pump. Stay with 5HG and under and do heat wrap and stretches before and after the sessions. I haven't noticed any bad effects and I have been doing it for a few years somewhat regularly. If anything it gets harder a lot quicker :)
