Health risks of pumping?

I was wondering if there are any obvious serious health risks of pumping? The only one I can imagine is that the airtight lock the cylinder creates could cutoff bloodflow or something similar.. my balls sometimes ache after pumping; Could anyone shed some light for me?

Thanks alot,

BB

You should list your pumping routine so there is some ground to go on.

But I believe that if your sack hurts then I think you pumping at to high a pressure.

Hi, yes you must be pumping at high pressure for long periods without a break. Do you have a pressure gauge on your pump? If not then get one, and do not pump over 4-5hg, for more than 15 mins without a break.

You could become addicted to it like me.

You could fall asleep while pumping. Not recommended.

You could pump at too high a pressure and cause discoloration or water blisters.

You could pump too long without a break and get the donut effect or the discoloration and water blisters.

But if you pump responsibly and follow recommended guidelines, there are no obvious serious health risks.

I have read that pumping can cause your penis to depend on the pump to become erect. Of course, this was from some site that was trying to sell some other enlargement device, so I took it with a handful of salt. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Lumo,

That hasn’t happened to me.

Pumping made my erections better, even now when I have been without pumping for two weeks.

That actually makes me want to try pumping even more, because I need that improvement.

Damn, it is going to be difficult to pump when I move into a host family’s small house.

I haven’t met them yet.

I wonder if they will have a daughter.

OOPS - I’m getting off topic… I will buy a pump soon, after eading this.

Thanks for all the feedback.. is 4-5hg the same as 4-5 inches of pressure? If so when pumping at that pressure it seems like theres little to no effect, I often pump quite higher than that. Apart from discoloration and blood spotting (jelqing seemed to cause much worse than pumping) everything seems fine enough. If I feel I can take the higher pressure, is it OK to do so? Does anyone else pump at higher pressure levels? Thanks again,

BB

Me too, I really get disappointed if I cant get to the office on a day and do an hours worth of pumping.


You all are still missing the point... The story was great and all but should have ass (and) some anal in it.- RWG

Quite the contrary for me, my erections are better and my nocturnal erections have steadily increased since I started pumping.

Why do you want to increase the pressure. I have made the common mistake that “more is better” and ended up with bad donuts and discoloration (in addition to a hanging routine). The guys with gains around here will tell you they didnt need to go to a higher hg to get gains. My experience is the same (after making my own mistakes because I know everything)

Vacuum is measured in inches of mercury and 1 in hg is equal to .49 psi. So 4-5 in hg should equal 1.96-2.45 psi. If you are pumping at 4-5 psi and your gauge is correct, that equals 8.16-10.2 in hg which is too high. I have a feeling your psi gauge is not directly correlating to this conversion, because you would experience some distress being a newbie and pumping at 8-10 in hg.

I think it is best for you to find a proper vacuum gauge to plumb into your system. Did you make your own pump setup? Does your psi gauge start at zero?

You know, I forgot that back at the start of this thread you said your balls ache after pumping. Perhaps a result of your pumping at too high a pressure? Like 8-10 in hg? Just where do you set your pressure gauge and how long do you stay in the tube?

In engineering parlance to the vacuum world, inches generally means Hg, Hg is the periodic symbol for mercury. Bizzabolla may have just posted in shorthand. If it were in pounds per square inch (psi), it would have to be in psiA (Absolute, that is, 0 psi plus 14.7 (standard atmospheric pressure at sea level)). Why? Well, the most common is psiG(gage) which automatically compensates for the barometer. And, psi units are double the size of inches of mercury so you have a large gage “swing” on the needle so accuracy is higher.

These psia gages are pretty specialized and your normal “mity mite” hand pump’s gage is in inches of mercury/inHg/”Hg much more common! 5”Hg for 15 mins. has proven to be optimal vacuum for me, unwrapped. See the threads for condom pumping, intriguing!

Now, I’m getting hard in the tube, releasing vac. then wrapping junior’s head and glans, I’m circumcised, with the ther-a-band. My peak I’m using now is 7-8”Hg for 15 mins with no doughnut around my glans.

I use a hang/pump combo that suits my schedule.

The units will be written on the face of the gage. If it is a dual scale, inner and outer, the legend will be ordered consistently with the scale. They may even be color coded.

Have fun!
