Oil change - priming engine

The DIY above says to prime the engine after an oil change. Is this necessary on my 300SE? If so how do you do it safely? I used to pull the ignition coil wire off my old beetle to prime it, but I dont think this is an acceptable method for a W140 300SE.

What happens if you dont prime it? My oil pressure went up immediately after I started it. More about that in another post.
