The term "pussy pump" or "vagina pump" brings about the same idea as a Penis Pump—a sex toy used to coax a penis to erection.

For many of us, the first introduction we had to a penis pump was in Austin Powers, and to say that scene was scary AF would be an understatement. Penis pumps, while real, should not be painful. They simply increase blood flow to the penis and help male-bodied people with conditions like ED achieve and maintain stronger erections. The same line of thinking goes for a pussy pump.

What does a pussy pump do?

While it may sound Austin-Powers-level scary, it's actually an easy to use sex toy to help increase blood flow to the vulva, clit, and vagina.

In fact, the terms pussy pumping or a pumped vagina should be thought of as endearing rather than uncomfortable. Who doesn't love a more sensitive vulva before sexy time, right?

Here is everything you need to know about how to use a pussy pump and why you might want to get this sex toy for yourself (or a partner).

What is a pussy pump?

A pussy pump is a sexual pleasure tool that uses a vulva-sized chamber, tube, and handheld pump to increase the sensitivity of the vulva and the clit. Most pussy pumps use a plastic chamber that you place over the whole vulva to create an airtight seal. You then use the hand-inflating mechanism to tighten the seal. The more you squeeze the bulb, the tighter it gets. The tighter the seal, the more sensitive the whole vulva area can become.

These sex toys can be used for pre-foreplay, foreplay, or to increase arousal before masturbation and intercourse. It's really up to you how to choose to use it. These toys are very much about experimentation to find what works for you.

Pussy pumps also come specifically for the clitoris. While there are still handheld clit pumps, these toys have recently gotten an automated upgrade in the form of suction toys, like the Satisfyer Pro 2 and Womanizer Premium. This toy uses a combination of suction and air to create an oral sex-like sensation. Since the clitoris is so sensitive (8,000 nerve-endings), these toys can give you a super-fast, super amazing orgasm.

Who can use a pussy pump?

This sex toy can be used by anyone who wants to increase sensation to the vulva or the clit. If you're looking for extra sensitivity or to experiment with your body's pleasure threshold, you can totally give these tools a whirl.

They're also a great sexual pleasure tool for anyone with a vulva who might be experiencing a lack of sensitivity or lubrication during sexual activity. This can happen for a variety of reasons including stress, past trauma, or anxiety (among many other things). While it isn't a cure-all, pussy pumping can be a helping hand in getting your ~juices flowing.~

This unique sex toy is for everyone and can be an exciting way to get in touch with your body.

What does a pussy pump feel like?

It feels like a suction cup, to put it in the most rudimentary terms. The feeling of pussy pumping will vary from person to person, from body to body, it usually feels pretty darn good. The suction brings blood front and center to the vulva, helping to fast-track the body's natural physiological sexual response cycle. Once removed, manual or oral stimulation will be even more intensified. It helps you feel all the feels.

If you're thinking about trying a pussy pump, you definitely want a product that is straightforward and easy to use. This easy-to-use sex toy is great for beginners and will have you revving and ready to go in minutes.

It's important to pay attention and see how everything feels for you. Each pump increases blood flow by quite a substantial amount so be sure to check in with yourself (or your partner) throughout the process. Once you're feeling revved up and ready to go, your body will let you know.

How to use a pussy pump

Now, to get to the nitty-gritty: how to use this sex toy! Most pussy pumps like the one above come with four parts: the chamber, a flexible tube, a hand pump, and a quick release valve.

Always use plenty of lube when using a pussy pump to ensure safety.

First, lube up the rim of the chamber. This helps to create a vacuum-tight seal around the vulva. Then, use the hand pump to start tightening the suction. Don't get so excited that you start furiously pumping away without making sure you're comfortable. This should not be painful, it should be pleasurable!

Be sure to check in your body and pump one squeeze at a time. Because each pump can feel substantially tighter than the last, do it gently. The seal gets tighter not when you hold the bulb, but when you release it. So, pay attention to what is happening and always communicate how you're feeling to a partner.

To release the pressure, press the quick release valve right above the bulb. Press it once and the vacuum will completely release. If you want to leave the chamber in place, suctioned to your vulva, simply remove the hose. There is a second release valve on the chamber itself, which can be used to remove the chamber at any time.

Pussy pump safety and aftercare

One of the most frequently asked questions we see, "Are pussy pumps safe?" or "Is pussy pumping safe?".

Now because we're talking about suction on of the most sensitive areas of the entire body, you want to be very careful while pussy pumping. If you push yourself too far or don't remove the sex toy should your body feel pain, you could cause tissue damage. If you have a history of dyspareunia, vulvodynia, endometriosis, or any other vulvar-related health issues, always consult your doctor before using a toy like this. Better safe than sorry.

Be sure to use a gentle, water-safe lube with your sex toy. Pick a lube that is paraben and glycerin-free like the Natural Intimate Water-Based Lube or the Coconut Love Oil by Woo More Play.

Once you've removed your sex toy, be sure to listen to your body when engaging in other play. While these sex toys are designed to increase sensation, they can also increase pain sensitivity. Be careful, check-in with yourself, and be gentle with your body.

To clean your pump, use a gentle soap and warm water. Dry it completely and store it in a cool, dry place. Be sure to thoroughly wash your pump between every single use.
