I have used several of the adult bookstore pumps. A very serviceable one cost me $27. I broke the tip where the rubber tube attaches when I dropped it on a hard tile floor in the bathroom. The second one I forgot at my summer home, the third I threw out when I moved cause I just did not want to risk having someone find it! They are perfectly fine and have cool names that will make you laugh...besides they come in colors like Red, pink, blue and black. The ones i saw all had quick release valves and worked really quite well.
The ones with the cuff that goes around the base of the penis are the best - as opposed to the ones which simply press against your body....those can suck up testicles..OUCH! The pump that the nurse showed me at the Dr's office was this last type. I told her I had heard about
"things" getting sucked up. She said, "Yeah that could happen, just be careful." I'm going to go shopping for one myself.
I probably am not remembering correctly...It probably was the pump up - leave the ring on and shower thing.
Gentlemen - thanks for your suggestions. As always, this place is rife with princes.
