I recently experienced a debilitating injury caused by a penis pump. I was out of commission for nearly three months. It makes me shudder to think that such an innocuous device could cause so much damage!
At first, I had thought the pump would be a great way to increase my size and give me a feeling of confidence. But I had no idea that by trusting in this simple device I was in for sex toys a world of pain.
As I began to use it, there was a mild discomfort. I didn’t think too much of it and went about my business. But the next day, that discomfort had intensified to a real pain and agony. I couldn’t move an inch.
I quickly realized I was in big trouble. I began to fear that I had really done a number on myself. Had I seriously injured my penis?
I quickly consulted a doctor who said that if I didn’t treat the injury properly, the condition might become irreversible. And sure enough, recovery was a lengthy process. It took weeks of hot and cold packs, physical therapy and, dildos in some cases, minor surgery.
I learned an important lesson from all this: know your limits! Though it may be tempting to use something that promises you miracle results, be mindful of the potential risks. I am grateful that I’m now on the road to recovery but I take comfort in knowing I don’t have to rely on penis pumps to make me feel confident!
To make sure I wouldn’t put myself in this situation again, I made an effort to understand the mechanics of using a penis pump correctly. I educated myself on the potential warning signs or symptoms that indicate something is wrong and the importance of using a lubricant to minimize friction and potential damages.
I also learned how to recognize when the pressure and vacuum levels have become more than my body can handle and how to properly adjust them to avoid pain.
As I continued to read up on the subject, I realized that using pumps safely and responsibly can have tremendous benefits for the size and health of one’s genitalia. It turns out that the device, when used correctly in conjunction with other treatments, can help increase blood flow and create a healthier penis.
But knowing these facts and addressing the issue won’t help me experience what I could have gained if I had the right information the first time. So, if you find yourself trusting your penis pump, do invest in educating yourself on its proper use—your future self will thank you!
