PE, other boards and philosophy
I’m aware that this question might turn into a flamefest- please don’t let it become that, ok?
I did notice that there seems to be a fundamental different approach to PE on the different PE forums I know of. For example,
- Thunders advises to pump, esp. with the Bathmate, on low pressure and be very careful with overpumping while one other board has a specific routine that advises to go max pressure, all in
- Thunders does not only not suggest but explicitly warns about and advises to not perform erect stretching, at all. Again another board specifically suggests that as a way to gain.
- On Thunders, any routine suggestion includes a good warmup and warmdown phase unless it is excluded for a specific reason (to avoid going over a certain girth for example). Other boards put far less emphasis on that.
These are just a few examples. While reading around and comparing ideas it occurred to me that Thunders has a safety-first, tried & tested approach while other boards seem to be more risk-taking, aggressive in their routine suggestions. I, personally, am rather worried about the well-being of my unit and would always err on the side of caution so the former is just fine with me, but I wanted to take opinions.
What do you think- do I have this roughly right? I’m not asking/posting to slag off other forums or their members, not at all. But if my observations are correct than it might be very useful for total newbies to know how to categorize the different schools of thought out there.
