Pussy Pumps, Clit Suckers, and Why You Should Consider Buying One of Each

(Along with our Top 7 Picks!)

You've heard of the penis pump or at least you've seen it joked about in comedies. But have you heard about pussy pumps–the latest trend in sex toys? Also known as a 'clit pump,' these suction cups serve to plump up one's vaginal area, making it ultra-sensitive to touch. We've covered clitoral stimulation toys, but pussy pumps increase sensation exponentially. 

Let's dive in.

What's a pussy pump?

Don't start visualizing cranking a bunch of air into your vagina. Pussy pumps work in the inverse fashion, by suctioning around your entire vagina, drawing air out of the area and increasing blood flow to the labia and clitoris. 

Ever watch how one's nipples harden after pinching them? Imagine that–but on a clitoris. Or have you ever watched those videos of people using a suction cup to plump their lips? A vagina pump is pretty much exactly that. When you increase blood flow, you cause the area to swell. 

Proponents claim that it increases stimulation and one's ability to orgasm, especially for those who find it difficult to climax normally. 

How do I use a pussy pump?

If we could create an analogy of sex routine to makeup routing, we'd call pussy pumps your 'primer' step. Using one creates an incredibly sensitive and responsive base for everything else in your line-up.  Pussy pumps are best used as an early foreplay step. 

If you're using a pussy pump for the first time, we suggest trying it solo or with a patient, caring partner. While pussy pumps might seem to be more on the kink-side of the sex toy spectrum now, they're pretty approachable and not as painful as they might look (unless if you *want* it to be more painful, which we discuss below).

Step one of using any vagina pump should always be to coat the rim of the chamber on a pussy pump with water-based lubricant. If you don't use lube, you might have a tough time when you detach the pump after play. So don't skip this step!

How to choose a pussy pump

Like pretty much every category of sex toys, there are many different types of pussy pumps. Before you start to look for a pussy pump, there are a few things you should take into consideration, such as the size that you might need. 

While we're sure you can list off your clothing size across several different brands in jeans, shirts, and shoes–it's likely that you don't know the 'size' your vagina for a pussy pump. That's ok. Probably the easiest thing to do would be to buy one of the ones listed that comes in variable sizes. 

If you're really interested in understanding the 'size' of your vagina, break out the measuring tape. You'll need two measurements. The first is your vagina 'length.' To find this, measure just above your clitoris to just below your vaginal opening. Second, you'll need your vagina width. To find your width, measure the distance between your thighs along your vulva. 

Got your size? Cool. Once you have that, just check the 'size charts' for the brand of pussy pump you're looking at to find out what size will fit you best.

Different types of pussy pumps: classic, vibrating, and clit suckers

Classic

Classic pussy pumps are simple–basically, a strong suction with an air-tight seal and pump to control it all. Pretty much all of them have a quick-release valve (thankfully). These pumps are often so low-maintenance that you don't even have to worry about whether they're USB rechargeable–as they use just an old fashioned hand-pump to achieve an airtight seal. 

Vibrating pumps 

This is where things can get interesting and you can combine the sensation of the pump with the sensation of a vibrator. These automatic vibrating pussy pumps can make it feel as though one is receiving oral sex as it strongly suctions the area.

Clitoral suction vibrators

These vibrators walk the line between clitoral stimulation vibrators and clitoral pumps. Another term for these vibes is 'clit sucker' vibes. They're designed to concentrate the sensation of a pussy pump on the clitoris.

Like the clitoral stimulation pussy pumps, suction vibrators are also designed to feel as though one is receiving great oral sex with variable air pressure. They're also great because they're easily used in almost any sex position.
