Tips for Using a Penis Pump Safely

Before using your penis pump for the first time, you should take a minute or two to familiarize yourself with the necessary safety precautions.

The quick release valve is the penis pump’s most important safety measure. The valve is usually a simple button that can be found on the hose attaching the squeezable trigger or bulb to the tube. A few penis pumps sometimes place the quick release valve on the tube itself. Pressing the quick release button floods the tube with air – automatically breaking the penis pump’s vacuum tight seal – so you can safely remove your penis when you’re finished pumping and in case of any problems.

The quick release valve is a standard feature on all penis pumps made and sold in the United States. However, you should never buy a penis pump overseas unless it comes with a quick release valve. Without the valve, you might actually have to cut the pump off in a worst-case scenario in order to remove it. And no guy wants a sharp knife or saw anywhere near a penis pump with his dick stuck in it!

The next important safety measure when it comes to your penis pump is time. Like tourniquets and cock rings, penis pumps interfere with the natural flow of blood within your body. While this doesn’t pose a problem on a short term basis, it can lead to complications and all sorts of problems if used constantly for hours at a time. Sexual experts recommend limiting your use of penis pump to between 20 and 30 minutes a session. You should then promptly remove the penis pump and give your shaft time to recover before using the penis pump again.

The next time you break out your penis pump, keep these penis pump saftey tips in mind. By using your penis pump safely and confidently, you’ll get the best possible results and be able to enjoy it for years to come.
