IR Heat. Which substances are unsafe to heat?
So I’m getting into IR for manual stretches, but I’d also like to use it for pumping, extender use, and edging. I wonder if I should be concerned about heating various lubricants that would be rubbed into the skin, whether petroleum based or otherwise. Even more I wonder about using IR heat while pumping.
I don’t have a great deal of knowledge about BPAs or other plastic health concerns, but the idea of my penis being placed in a vacuum surrounded by heated plastic for extended periods of time does make me worry a little bit. I guess I don’t really know at what temperature plastic release any sort of compounds or fumes, much less when it’s dangerous. Does anyone here think that they might have some insight? I also wonder about applying heat to an extender, which is made of metal and plastic.
