I had always thought pussy pumps wouldn’t really work â€“ I’m not sure why I thought this, but recently I read a review about pussy pumping and it occurred to me that they might indeed work, and that I should give one a try. Pink Cherry sex toys was kind enough to oblige my whimsy by sending the Doc Johnson Pussy Pump for review.
In A Nutshell: A simple device that works exactly as intended. A pussy pump fits over the vulva, and when suction is applied, it draws blood to the entire vulva â€“ particularly the labia.
What’s Awesome? When a sex product is so simple and works exactly as intended, it’s â€“ frankly â€“ refreshing. This product is dead simple â€“ a hard plastic cup that does provide adequate seal against the pussy, with a way to quick attach a pumping bulb and a safety quick release valve.
What’s Not So Awesome? Well, it’s pink, and all it does is pump…no vibration, no stimulation….nothing fancy. I like simplicity, but for someone who wants knock your socks off stimulation this won’t do the trick.
This Pussy Pump, from Doc Johnson, features a cup made from hard ABS plastic. The cup is four inches long and is ergonomically designed to fit over the vulva and create a seal (it works well on me). Being made from hard ABS plastic, the toy is non porous can can be cleaned with a 10% bleach solution for sharing, if desired, or simply washed will with soap and water (or antibacterial toy cleaner) and allowed to air dry. Connecting to the cup via a long flexible hose the the bulb that can be pumped to create the vacuum. This bulb sits comfortably in hand (the hose is plenty long enough) while the cup sits over top of the vulva, and as an added bonus, the hose can be detached from the cup when adequate suction has been applied, without loss of suction. The hose features a quick release button at the base of the bulb that releases the pressure very quickly, and the cup itself has a small bleed valve that can be pressed to release pressure as well. Its quick to go on, easy to make it stay on, and easy to remove when you’ve had enough. Which is, pretty much, exactly what you want out of a pussy pump, no?
So logistics of use aside, how well does it….work? Excellently!
First things first – pubic hair and assorted decorations. Both, potentially, counteract the ability of the pump to maintain suction. Pubic hair makes it tougher to get a seal all around the cup, and some genital piercings may end up exactly in a spot where the vulva skin wants to make a seal with the hard plastic cup. The good news is that in both cases these challenges can be overcome. With pubic hair, shaving or trimming is an option, but if you’re not into that what you can do is liberally coat the area (I prefer to do the inside of the cup) with lube (silicone or water based only!), the thicker the better, in order to force a seal. I have found that even at my bushiest, I can still get enough of a seal to effectively pump my pussy â€“ although I was unable to get the vacuum to stay and had to periodically pump a bit more to stop the cup from slipping off. Genital piercings are easier to accommodate â€“ simply position the cup so that the piercing won’t interfere. There is a lot of variability in how far forward or back the cup can be placed, so it should be possible to find an orientation that works. Of course, there are limits to everything â€“ a lot of (or just really large) genital piercings might be a deal breaker. If, however, you use the pussy pump when you’re trimmed and/or shaved, and don’t have really unique genital decorations, it will work excellently.
It’s very amusing pumping your vulva. The first few pumps make my outer labia swell to full the volume of the cup, pulling them upwards and inwards as they inflate. Pumping beyond the first few pumps feels very different â€“ like a big fat hickey is being given t the entire vulva. After a while in the pumped state, the inner folds of my vagina are extremely heightened in sensitivity, and can feel every brush with other skin, with the sides of the cup, whatever. After eve more time, I find I feel like I’m just highly aroused â€“ my vulva feels swollen and pulsey and filled with pleasant pressure. I should note, I love having my clit sucked during oral sex, so that probably contributes to my enjoyment of this feeling. When released from the cup, my vulva feels big and floppy and almost foreign â€“ but exquisitely sensitive and receptive to touches. The orgasms I have after pumping are way more intense.
Thanks again to Pink Cherry Sex Toys for providing me with this super fun product!
