It is fine to do exercises such as bench press without a spotter if you know what you are doing. I bench press without a spotter and I do fine. It is safer to have a spotter but not necessary.

You could get hurt and injure yourself

Why should you never do an exercise such as the bench without a spotter?

Because, if you miscalculate and get stuck under the weight, you could end up injuring yourself or damaging the equipment from "dumping" the weight (in the event of getting stuck in the bench press). In additions, spotters are also there to ensure that catastrophic accidents, such as dropping the weight on your neck (there are some nasty videos on YouTube of this happening), can be prevented.If you are lifting with any heavy weight, you should NEVER go forward without a spotter. Failure to do so may result in serious injury and/or damage to the equipment.

Does having a spotter unrack weight for bench presser aid lifter on max?

It's a good idea. It certainly doesn't hurt. After all, the bench presser has to work less immediately before an attempt. In a competition, any aid (such as a bench shirt) is welcome. (If you are doing a heavy single bench press at home, please always have either a spotter or two or do them in a power rack with properly set safety bars.)

Which types of lifts require spotters?

Depends on a variety of factors. If you are lifting past your abilities, it would be helpful to have a spotter to maintain safety and good form. It also gives a mental edge that allows you to lift more than what you normally would without a spotter.
