Penis pumps are actually the first of all penis enlargement devices invented by man, since hanging weights from your penis cannot be called operating a device. Pumps have been around for some time and their popularity does not seem on the decline at all. However, before you press the order button or whip out your credit card there are some things you should consider. Our goal is not to convince you to go for a certain product, although we do endeavor to put forward a friendly suggestion, but to make people see why certain things are a hazard to them. Many men, too many men actually, are perfectly willing to throw common sense overboard and rush to the first flashy website or shop that promises a quick gratification of everybody’s desires. Unfortunately, life is not that simple.
For those of you who have never seen one, a vacuum pump is a cylinder that fits tightly over the penis. No air can get in and the little air trapped inside the cylinder is removed by the pump. The resulting vacuum pressure caused by the pump stretches the sponge-like tissues that make up the penis. In theory, the tissues then fill with much more blood than ever before and the quality of erections grows. The penis, too, allegedly expands in length and girth and permanent enlargement is reached. Is this theory correct? Actually, no. Subjecting any part of the human body to such pressure under vacuum conditions is a surefire way of rupturing blood vessels. You don’t need an article like this one to tell you that internal bleeding is bad for you. Although the bleeding is confined to the penis and blood vessels heal in time, prolonged use of pumps is very likely to cause long term damage.
The positive effects of any penis pump are temporary. Erections gained with the help of such a device last only a short time, as any man suffering from diabetes or poor circulation can tell you. The powerful suction does fill the penis chambers to the absolute maximum, but the blood will start leaving the penis as soon as the pump goes off. What’s worse is that the temporary benefits of stronger erections and increased size come with a heavy size. Preventing the blood from circulating for extended periods of time is risky because cells depending on blood for oxygen will start dying. The pump also tends to desensitize the penis, because the vacuum does not discriminate between cells that make up the tissues and those that are part of the nerves.
This problem is compounded by the fact that the safe pressure varies from one man to another and the recommended pressure is not always safe. You have probably heard the horror stories of impotence or curved penises told by people whose friends were maimed by pumps. Or the not at all common stories about people who thought they knew how to handle a penis pump until the day they get their balls sucked into the cylinder. To say that having your balls crushed inside a pressure cylinder is painful would be a huge understatement.
This is why we advise any man interested in safe penis enlargement not to let himself suckered into buying a hazardous device. There are other ways to get a bigger penis without risking impotence in the process. Take an enlargement exercises system like Penis Health. Exercises employ the very same underlying principles as the pump, but using only your hands you cannot possibly reach the pressure values at which pumps operate. This means that you are getting the same results, but in a far safer manner. Furthermore, using a “hands-on” approach, pun intended, you can find out a lot faster how much pressure you can take and when it would be a good idea to stop. What could be safer than that? So take our friendly advice and try something that’s both effective and safe before maiming yourself.
