What is a clit pump?

A clitoris pump is a tool/sex toy that you can put over your clitoris and suck/pump out air from and it will create a vacuum in it.

It has a few different parts depending on what style of clit pump it is. The main part is the suction tube where the vacuum is and the pump part which is the part that creates the vacuum.

The vacuum will increase the blood flow to your clitoris and make it bigger and more sensitive.

How does it work?

It’s fairly straight forward to use a clit pump and you should have no problem using it unless you’re super inflexible and can reach.

This is how you use a clit pump:

  1. Take the clit pump and apply a thin layer of thick water-based lube on the rim of the suction tube.
  2. Gently press the suction tube around your clit with one hand and hold it upright.
  3. Squeeze/press the pump and let it get a good suction so it can stick to your body without the need for you to hold it.
  4. Let it sit for 30 seconds and suck out more air once in a while to keep a good vacuum.
  5. Use it for 5-30 minutes depending on what you want to achieve. More on that later.
  6. Press the quick-release valve or untwist it to release the vacuum and take it off.
  7. You can now enjoy your larger clitoris which all that comes with that.

What are the benefits of using a clit pump?

There are several benefits you can enjoy when pumping your clitoris, let’s take a look at some of them here.

  • Enhanced sensitivity – Your clitoris is one of the places with the most nerve ends on your body but it’s still not enough for some women to get a clitoris orgasm. You can dramatically increase the sensitivity of your clitoris by pumping it up. This can be achieved with a quick 5-minute clit pumping sessions right before sex or masturbation.
  • Temporarily enlargement – We are all different and some of us are simply born with a small clitoris that love to hide away. It can be very frustrating for both you and your sex-partner if it’s impossible to find your clitoris for that amazing clitoris stimulation. Using a clit pump with a little more vacuum pressure can increase the size of your clit temporarily and make it very easy to find with a finger or tongue. It’s a solution that’s hardly ever discussed which is a shame because it can be fixed with a 5-minute clit pumping sessions before sex or masturbation.
  • Permanent enlargement – You’re also able to permanently enlarge your clit, but this does require a lot more work and not all clit pumps are up to that task. Read more about that in the section below.  

FTM clit pumping

What the hell is FTM clit pumping? FTM stands for Female To Male and it’s the process of transforming the female body to a male body. The clitoris can be enlarged quite a lot and take the appearance of a penis and that’s what FTM clit pumping for.

Most clit pumps will work in the beginning of this process but you’ll end up needing a lot more vacuum and a larger suction tube once you really get started. That’s where specific FTM clit pumps come in.

Domix deluxe clit pump system

The clit pump that I recommend is called the Dominix Deluxe Clitoris pump system and it comes with 3 sizes of suction tubes so you can change to a bigger one when you outgrow the first one.

The pump itself is very precise and offers lots of suction power to create a strong enough vacuum for enlargement.

I just want to make it very clear that this is not something that happens overnight but it’s a long process that can take months or even years of clit pumping.

You can do a wide range of clit pumping sessions but remember to let your body rest so you don’t overdo it.

Is the enlargement permanent?

You can achieve permanent results if you are consistent and do clit pumping sessions every day for 6 months to a year.

You can always do a clit pumping sessions once every 2 weeks to keep the changes if you’re already at the size you wish to be at.

How do I choose the right one?

There are a few different types of clit pumps with their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let’s go over them so you get a better understanding of them and can choose one that works the best for you.

The manual clit pump:

A manual clit pump has some kind of manual pump that creates the vacuum by squeezing of pressing the pump together.

Advantages:

  • You get more control over the vacuum
  • Does not require batteries or recharging
  • Low noise operation
  • Very strong vacuum
  • Very easy to use

Disadvantages:

  • It does require some hand strength
  • There are a hose sticking out from the vacuum tube to the pump

The Automatic clit pump:

The same as the manual pump, but with an electric pump that’s operated with a push of a button.

Advantages:

  • Create a vacuum with a single push of a button
  • Some have vibrating features
  • Very strong vacuum

Disadvantages:

  • It does cost more with the electric pump
  • You don’t get the same vacuum strength precision
  • It can be a little noisy
  • You need to remember to charge it

The Twister clit pump:

The Twister clit pump design is super simple and it works by putting it over your clit and twisting the top nub which move it up and creates a vacuum just like a syringe.

Advantages:

  • Very easy to use
  • No air hoses
  • Easy to hide away
  • Very cheap

Disadvantages:

  • Not as powerful
  • Can be a little awkward to twist

That’s great, but can’t I just use my pussy pump?

What’s the difference between a clit pump and a pussy pump?

First off, no they are not the same! A clit pump will focus all the attention and vacuum to your clitoris (or nipple) area and nothing else.

clitpump vs pussy pump

A pussy pump has a lot larger suction cup that’s designed to go around your entire pussy. Sure, it will pump up your clit a bit but nothing like a true clit pump. There are a lot of misinformation floating around online and even some of the sex toy shops get it wrong some times.

So, make sure you read the entire product description and take a good look at it and use your common sense before buying one.

Is a vibrating clit sucker the same as a clit pump?

No, a vibrating clit sucker is a type of vibrator that focus all the vibrating on your clitoris. It has a small ring- shaped head that can suck on your clit, but it does not work the same way as a clit pump. A clit pump is much more effective and designed to enhance your sexual appearance and stimulation while a vibrating clit sucker is a masturbation sex toy.

Clit pump FAQ

A: You can reduce the sensitivity with cold water which will retract your clit and make go back to “normal” a lot quicker.

A: There is always the risk of over-pumping which is why you should always listen to your body and it should not be painful. Stop as soon as you feel any kind of pain.

A: You only need a few minutes to get a very sensitive clit, but it does take a lot longer if you wish to enlarge it. I know some will do it for hours per day but I would not recommend that. Start with 30 minutes per day and work your way up – It’s important to listen to your body.

A: The blood the rushes to your clit will decrease the vacuum, so that’s really just a sign that it’s working. There could however be air leaking out from the pump or the joints which would is the result of a bad clit pump or a broken one.

A: Try Applying some water or lube on the rim of the suction tube, this should help you get a good suction seal.
