What is a Pussy Pump?

A pussy pump – also called a vagina pump or vulva pump – is a sexual enhancement tool that usually consists of a suction chamber, tub, and pump. The suction cup is placed over the labia and/or clit, which creates an airtight seal over the area.

Pussy pumps are either able to cover the whole vulva, or you can buy a clit pump, which targets the clitoris specifically.

What Does a Pussy Pump do?

Essentially, a pussy pump gives you a lady boner.

As you pump, the tissue around the labia and/or clitoris will swell, encouraging more blood to flow and making the skin much more sensitive. The tighter the seal and the more pumping you do, the greater the sensitivity.

How to Use a Pussy Pump

  1. Lubricate the outside edge of the pussy pump using a water-based lube such as Lovehoney Enjoy Lubricant – this will help to create an air-tight seal.
  2. Ensure that the quick-release valve, located beneath the pump bulb, is closed and only allowing air out, not in.
  3. Press the pussy pump chamber against the desired area making sure that you achieve a firm seal.
  4. Keeping one hand on the pump chamber, compress the pump bulb until you feel suction.
  5. Release the bulb and check the seal against your skin. The pump chamber should be held in place via suction only and it should not come away from the skin unless specifically pulled. If it has not yet sealed against your skin, continue to hold it in place and keep pumping!
  6. Continue squeezing and releasing the bulb of the pussy pump until you can feel and see your labia swelling in the chamber. It will feel a little strange at first, but it should not feel painful.
  7. Once your skin is pressing against the chamber, you will find it hard to pump any further – this is the maximum you will be able to pump to. Press the quick-release valve below the bulb and allow air to enter the chamber.
  8. Gently remove the pussy pump and enjoy the beautifully swollen, excitingly engorged look and amazing feel to your clitoris and vulva!

How much is a pussy pump?

Pussy pump prices range from between $20-$100, so choosing one depends on your budget and how high-tech you want your gadget to be. Vibrating pussy pumps are usually a little bit more expensive.

What does a pussy pump feel like?

Just like a nipple sucker or penis pump, a pussy pump feels surprisingly good while you’re using it, but even better when you take it off. They’re designed to mimic what happens when you’re aroused, so once you take it off, any stimulation in that area will be super sensitive.

Is pussy pumping dangerous?

No, using a pussy pump is safe.

If you find you are experiencing any discomfort, stop pumping. It might take a while to get used to the sensations, but a pussy pump should not cause any actual pain.

And do not over-pump, as this could lead to injury and possible damage to the pussy pump, too.

Sex and masturbation are fine after pumping but remember to use lubricant, as the vacuum sensation can cause dryness.
