One of the first questions you might ask yourself when shopping for a penis pump is, “Is it safe for me to use?” It’s a good question, too, because some pumps are much safer than others. Learning to distinguish safe pumps from dangerous ones is very important to the outcome of your experience.
Let’s be honest here. You will see all kinds of pumps for sale, both on the Internet and in sex shops around the world. Some are high quality, safe devices and some are not. Don’t believe all the hype stirred up by fancy advertising without checking out the facts. With a little research and education, you can be on your way to making a smart purchase.
Forget cheap, knock-off pumps from unknown sources
doctor-adviceBuying cheap knock-off pumps from unknown manufacturers can definitely be hazardous to the health of your penis. Instead or buying your pump from somewhere like eBay, play it safe by purchasing a tried-and-proven product from a manufacturer you trust. However, you still need to research your product even if it is listed on a trusted site.
Customer Reviews – Do they sound too good to be true?
You can’t always believe the reviews you read if they are posted on the same site where your intended product is for sale. Look around at other review sites and find one that has no connection to the produce they are reviewing. Those are the ones you can trust the most. If a review sounds too good to be true, it usually isn’t.
Standards for Safe Penis Pumps
There are certain requirements and standards pumps should meet in order to be considered safe. Here’s a smart list of recommendations for you to consider:
Pumps should be made from high quality, medical-grade materials
They should include gauges to limit amount of vacuum (or include their own method of vacuum control)
Cylinder of pump should be clear in color so that you can monitor the appearance of your penis during the pump routine
It should include both start & quick-release mechanisms to allow you more control
Water Pumps are your Best Choice
Your best bet, when purchasing a penis pump, is to buy a water pump.
While they are slightly more expensive, they are also safer to use.
Water pumps deliver uniformly even pressure to your penis, cutting out the potential for injuries. Air pumps, although certainly effective, sometimes have the tendency to produce too much uneven pressure, resulting in potential harm to your penis. In addition to being the safer choice, water pumps also result in uniform growth and produce better results.
focus-on-qualityIf you are unable to purchase a quality water pump, then your next choice should be an advanced automatic air pump with built-in vacuum limitation. The only other potentially safe choice would be a cheaper air pump with a gauge (in which you would control the vacuum yourself).
When it comes to you penis, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Do your research well and make sure you purchase a high quality penis pump that has been tried and proven safe & effective.
Which Penis Pump should You Select?
When trying to decide on a penis pump, you will be faced with many options. They aren’t all the same so if you find yourself confused, a little education goes a long way. Learning about various types will help you make a decision that you won’t regret later.
Categories of Pumps
Basically, there are two main categories. Air pumps create pressure by means of a motor or a manual pump mechanism. Water pumps create pressure using water from your bath or shower.
Breaking it down further, other types that fall under these two main categories are:
Manual, Automatic, or Electric
Vibrating & Non-Vibrating
Gauge & Non-Gauge
Small, Average, and Big Sizes
Pumps can also be categorized according to the materials used to make them, their quality, and their comfort level. There are so many different types that it can be difficult to choose the right one for your needs.
Pricewise, the most affordable devices are manually operated. You must do all the work yourself and keep up with how much pressure you are applying with the use of a hand-operated pump.
These are very simple devices that are easy to use.
A step up from manual pumps are automatic/electric ones. Some of them come complete with measuring gauges and some don’t.
Gauges are great on the cheaper priced varieties but totally unnecessary on your more expensive, updated devices. Most of the newer pumps come with built-in protection that won’t allow you to overdo the amount of pressure applied.
You will notice, when shopping around, that some of the better devices come in small, average, and big sizes. This might be an important consideration for you if your penis is smaller or larger than usual.
Water-Assisted Pumps are, by far, the elite of all penis pumps.
They are slightly more expensive but much safer to use. They work by using water instead of air to get the job done. Instead of pumping, all you must do is press the installed unit towards your body to get the amount of pressure needed. Water devices are 100% safe and much easier to use than traditional pumps.
They are fast becoming best sellers, primarily because of their safety factor, ease of use, and superior results.
Now that you know a little more about the different varieties of penis pumps, you should be better able to make a good purchasing decision. Just remember to purchase a good quality device made of medically-approved materials from a reputable manufacturer. It should be convenient to use with easily understood instructions.
