Pussy Pumps: What Are They and Why Should You Use Them?

Long gone are the days when sex was considered pleasurable only for men. The best indicator of how women are changing their attitude towards love-making might be the sex toy industry. There are more and more products that aim to help the ladies make the most out of intercourse or masturbation.

The sex toy market is growing bigger and stronger. If you haven’t joined the club of proud sex tools owners yet, it may be the right time. Even if you are not interested in sex aids, there is one particular gadget that every lady should get. It’s Her Majesty, the Pussy Pump.

What’s a Pussy Pump?

Essentially, it is a device that creates suction to engorge your vagina. The vacuum will draw blood into the vaginal area, or sometimes specifically clitoral or labial parts, thus making your vagina more sensitive and swollen-looking.

The principle is very similar to the penis pump, and so are the results. Mind you — it has nothing to do with any kind of dysfunctions, although it may help with those too. Vaginal pumps are designed to increase excitement, sensitivity, and sexual pleasure.

However, many women still appear to be timid regarding the pussy pumps. Though we wouldn’t exclude shame as a reason, there might be more going on. A lot of women are afraid that these toys may be potentially unsafe, so we decided to do a thorough analysis of the device. Hopefully, we will bust some myths surrounding this awesome sex tool.

How Does a Pussy Pump Work?

As we said, the gadget uses suction to draw blood into your vagina to make it more sensitive. The mechanism is very simple and creates a vacuum via an automatic or mechanical pump. Nonetheless, it is a fantastic little aid that can make your couple or solo sessions awesome.

So, pussy pumps are cup-shaped devices that use the same mechanism as the bulb-enemas. Although there are more advanced pumps that rely on trigger handles, as a beginner, you will probably start with the former type.

All in all, the offer is enormous, so whatever your preferences are, there will be something that you can use. The toys come in different colors, shapes, and sizes to suit the need of any person.

Tech Details

Pussy pumps consist of a see-through cup — which we refer to as the chamber — and a pump that can be either manual or automatic.

The pumping mechanism comes with a quick-release valve that can stop the suction immediately in case of any discomfort or unease. Most of the devices have two quick releases. This means that your partner can help with stopping the suction if you use the toy during foreplay or sex.

What Types of Pumps Can You Get?

At this point, you may feel confused regarding the size of the pump. Well, it has nothing to do with the size of your body, rather with the area you would like to stimulate. Since you may still be unsure, we will examine the different variants of the toy. This might help you decide.

Whole Pussy Pumps

This is the original toy that covers the whole thing, so to say. It is the traditional version for the whole vaginal area and stimulates all parts of your pussy simultaneously.

The size of the cup is big enough to extend over the entire crotch. There is a tube connecting the cup to a bulb or a lever, and the device allows you to control the suction manually.

Clitoral Pumps

Though the principle is the same, clit pumps are smaller in size. Thus, you can perform the suction only on a specific area. If you enjoy clit stimulation, then clit pumping may be the thing for you.

Recently, the manufacturers started to use a new technology (“pressure wave”), especially on clit pumps. “Pressure wave” can add a vibrating sensation, which makes the whole experience fantastic.

Vibrating Pumps

This is a very special device that can make you go crazy. Maybe it’s not the best option for beginners, but if you are an experienced pumper, you should give it a go.

The toy uses the “pressure wave” to create a vibration, which makes you feel like someone is performing cunnilingus on you. But more than a sucking sensation, some users say that it gives a penetration feeling.

With these advanced pumps, you will discover that the inside of the chamber has a texture to maximize the stimulation.

Teaser Cups

Once you enter the world of pussy pumps, you will find out that there are numerous options to choose from. As the pumps grew popular, the manufacturers started to explore various ways to make them more exciting and fun.

Now you can find the chambers (cups) with fantastic enhancements. We already mentioned the “pressure wave,” but there are pumps that have a built-in vibration, and the experience is amazing.

Also, some of the toys have a slot for an external vibrator. However, it is important to start slow and figure out how everything works before you move on to these extreme variants.

Bulb or Lever

As we said, you can control the suction manually by using a bulb or a lever. Your vaginal pump will not come with both options, so you will have to decide which one you like more. Both are fine, and the choice depends solely on your preferences.

Most users tend to prefer the bulb because it seems easier to use. However, it can resemble the blood-pressure meter. The best thing would be to visit your local sex shop and see what appeals to you more.

Pressure Gauges

These are neat tech additions that help you stay safe and not over-pump. Yes, there is a potential danger of over-pumping. Though you will probably feel when you should stop, pressure gauges can be helpful. They can be both digital and analog. If you are a beginner, you may consider getting a pump with gauge to avoid any risks.

Clear Chambers — Why?

Since we delved into the matter of safety, let’s discuss the color of the cup. It may sound weird, but the color is important when you choose a pump. To get right to the point, you should opt for a clear, transparent chamber.

Although you may be tempted to buy the red or the pink one, remember to stick with colorless in the beginning. When you start using this toy, you will need to monitor the color and shape of your vagina.

In the case of over pumping, the area may demonstrate changes, which are the best indicators that you need to stop the suction. Some users do not feel any particular unease but still hurt themselves. Clear cups will allow you to monitor what is happening and stop on time.

Why Use a Pussy Pump?

Well, there are so many reasons. From sexual arousal to appearance, vaginal suction is sometimes even used for medical purposes.

Going through the personal experiences of the users, one can easily claim that clit and pussy pumps exceeded the penis pumps in terms of efficiency and end results. It may have something to do with the more realistic expectations women have from the device.

Although different users seek different things, vaginal suction offers a range of possibilities. Whatever your motives may be, you will benefit from pussy pumps for sure. We will explore all upsides of pussy pumping, so you can understand what it can do for you.

It Increases Blood Flow

This is the most obvious and beneficial result of vaginal pumping. The vacuum helps increase the blood flow in the area. This makes your vagina more sensitive to stimulation. During and after the pumping you will feel much hornier, to put it bluntly.

Pussy pumps can do wonders for women who are not easily aroused. The sensitivity of the vagina increases immensely, so it can help with low libido and sexual dysfunction. Stimulating the blood flow is healthy in itself, provided you do not overdo the pumping.

It Makes the Vagina Look Better

Of course, this is a matter of perspective, but most men prefer the swollen-looking vagina. One of the effects of pumping is the swelling of the entire area, so you may achieve that famous porn-star appearance.

Even if you are not into it, the swelling of the pussy makes it much more sensitive and can turn you on because it feels great. If you are using the pump with your partner, both of you can experience arousal, and the intercourse can be more exciting.

Pleasure From Pain

At this point, we are delving into some light BDSM. Namely, using a pump can cause light pain because your vagina will be very sensitive. We are not talking about anything uncomfortable. It’s a very stimulating sensation that actually feels quite good.

Mind you — if you are not into it, you can control the suction and stop with the first sign of discomfort. One of the effects of pumping is that it makes you very reactive to touch. Some define it as a pleasurable pain, but you are, in fact, just being super horny.

Medical Benefits

Among the most obvious medical benefits is the treatment of sexual dysfunction. As we said, pumping is good for women who have issues with arousal. It is also recommended if you are unable to have an orgasm.

Increasing blood flow can help with other conditions as well, so the pumps are sometimes used after certain injuries to help the body heal. If you are experiencing any of these difficulties, consult with your doctor to see if you should start using vaginal suction.

How to Use the Pump Properly?

Like with any other tool, it is crucial to use the pump properly. This ensures maximum results and keeps you safe. While these toys are fairly easy to use, there are still things you should know and do before pussy pumping.

Prepare the Area

While this is not a necessary step, we recommend you shave or wax the vaginal area. The truth is that most women do this anyway. However, even if you are not a fan of bare pussies, make an exception before you start pumping.

Since the cup needs to stay still, it is much easier to make a tighter seal if the area is smooth. This will ensure that the chamber does not move and make the experience more enjoyable.

Use Lube

We cannot stress enough how important lube is for any kind of sexual play. The same goes for pumping. If you have not been using lube, we suggest you get it immediately.

To go back to the pump, you should apply a small amount of water-based lubricant around the rims of the chamber. It will help the suction run smoother, and it will be much easier to remove the chamber once the pressure is released.

Where to Place the Pump?

Depending on the size of the pump, you can place it over the entire vaginal area, or just over the clit. In case you got yourself a clit pump, don’t try to use it for the whole pussy. You can hurt yourself.

So, place the pump over the desired area and make sure you seal it tight. In the beginning, it may seem difficult to do, but you will get the hang of it. You may need to adjust the angle to put the cup in the right position.

How Hard Should You Pump?

If you are new to this, don’t pump hard at all. It is always better to go slowly and with caution. We advise you to do a couple of small pumps to adjust to the feeling and to monitor your vagina. This will help you determine if the pump is sucking the air out and if you placed the pump properly.

You should continue with small pumps until your vagina starts to swell up. Please remember that you should not feel any pain or discomfort at this point.

How Long Can You Use It?

Once you reach the desired level of swelling, leave the pump for a couple of minutes to do its magic. Under no circumstances should you leave it for more than ten minutes. If you are a fresh starter, two minutes will do the trick.

Another important piece of advice is not to jump into masturbation or sex right after removing the pump. You should chill for a few minutes because the skin needs to cool down. Don’t worry; you will still be very sensitive and aroused.

Kee the Pump Clean

We feel that it’s important to stress that keeping your pump clean is a must, and you should take the time to do it after each session. You probably won’t share it with others, but it still has to be properly maintained.

So, after use, make sure you apply a safe disinfecting product to clean the chamber and bulb. Also, store the toy in the original package and keep it in a dry place. This is the only way to avoid infections due to bacteria. It would be wise to clean the device before use, especially if it has been sitting for a while.

What Does Pumping Feel Like?

It feels like heaven, or at least it should feel like heaven if you use it properly. Though many compare it to cunnilingus, it is a special feeling that is difficult to describe in words. It may be odd at first, but you will be feeling all sorts of pleasant sensations in no time.

Most women are concerned that it can cause pain or unease, so let’s check some of the most common questions the pump virgins ask.

Does It Hurt?

Not at all, if you don’t want it to. Pumping is not a painful experience, and any kind of discomfort comes from the misuse of the device. That is why you should follow the manual religiously.

You are in control of the pumping, and you can stop when you feel comfortably swollen. However, remember that the toy can cause some pain if you pump hard or long, so it can be used as a BDSM aid. But only if that is what you want.

Is It Uncomfortable?

Pussy pumps are not uncomfortable. Again, any kind of discomfort implies that you are not using the device properly. It can feel odd if you haven’t placed the toy in the right position. If that is the case, simply re-adjust it and find the angle that suits you.

If you are still uncomfortable, release the air and try again. It may take some time to get used to the sensation, so don’t rush it.

Does It Feel Good?

Pumping should feel very good. The Immediate effect is the swelling of the clitoris, followed by the engorging of the whole vagina. The clit will harden, and you should feel aroused very quickly. If you are doing this with your partner, they will probably be as horny as you.

Some users reported that releasing the air gives them even more pleasure as it increases the tingling sensation. Either way, you should have an extremely exciting experience.

Think of it as a combination of visual stimulation and the feeling of someone sucking on your labia. If you have a vibrating toy, the pumping can give you an orgasm without indulging in actual intercourse or masturbation.

Will You Get the Porn-Star Look?

If this is what you are aiming for, we may have to disappoint you. Achieving that look is very difficult because you would have to do a lot of pumping. Though many adult videos include pussy pumping, be aware that those are professionals who may not be in it for the pleasure.

Pumping too hard can cause pain and keep you from enjoying other aspects of the experience that are way more beneficial. Our advice would be not to focus on the appearance but on the feeling.

Having said that, you will still get a significantly engorged look, and for most users, that is quite enough. In other words, your vagina can become the best version of itself.

Is Pumping Safe?

Yes, pussy pumps are safe. However, we have to stress the importance of following the instructions again. Also, always listen to your body and don’t stretch over your current limits. These toys are designed to give you pleasure, but they can only do so if you are sensible.

To get the best possible results, start carefully, grow gradually, and always keep the device clean. By following these simple rules, pumping will be absolutely safe.

How Much Pressure Should You Put on The Vagina?

This is a difficult question because there is no general answer. Since pumping should be pleasant, the first sign of discomfort means that you should stop. The actual amount of pressure that can cause pain depends on the person.

That is why pressure gauges may be useful. You can check how high to go without being uncomfortable and just apply the same amount next time.

Possible Side Effects

There are no warnings issued against vaginal pumps by any medical authority in the world. As long as you remain sensible about how often you use them, you shouldn’t be worried about any long-term side effects.

However, it is very important to be aware of the actual benefits of the device because many ads give it much more credit than it deserves. So, to put it simply, pussy pumps are excellent short-term solutions that enhance the excitement by stimulating vaginal tissue. They can even help women with libido issues improve their pleasure during sex.

What they cannot do is offer long-term solutions in case of serious medical and psychological conditions such as frigidity or asexuality. It is vital not to go overboard when pumping in order to fix something that has to be treated in an entirely different way.

If we learned anything from penis-pump usage it’s that advertisers tend to promote certain features that are not exactly true. Or to be more precise, they can be true for a very small amount of users.

Namely, the promises of increased sexual desire or the improvement of the appearances are valid only during and immediately after the sessions. There is no solid evidence to imply that you will look like a porn diva all the time.

On the other hand, if you take the device for what it is, the benefits can be awesome. Just dodge the hype you and will be satisfied with the results.

To Conclude

Although there are a couple of things to consider before you start using the pussy pump, we are certain that you will love it. With many products available on the market, you should find the right one easily.

Once again, don’t forget to follow the instructions from the manual. So, don’t go overboard and keep your toy clean. We encourage you to be adventurous, but staying safe is mandatory. Additionally, it will make your device last longer.

In the end, vaginal pumping is a beautiful experience, even if you do it on your own. Just remember to be responsible because you are playing with your body. It is the only way to enjoy yourself fully. So let's start pumping, ladies!
