Vacuum cleaner
I used a vacuum cleaner to get off a few times a couple of years ago. Could I have caused damage to my penis?

Using a vacuum cleaner, or any vacuum-pump device, to swell and stimulate your penis is not a good idea. It can rupture blood vessels and desensitize this precious organ. If you're still enjoying your masturbatory pleasure after doing this, count yourself fortunate.
