Doc Johnson Automatic Vibrating Rechargeable Pussy Pump

I’m fascinated by pumps. Whilst working in sex shops, I was often asked “do they work?” and “what do they do?” I proffered the answers I had been taught but hadn’t experienced myself. Theoretically I knew how they worked and I guess I understood the sensation by sticking them to my arm, but I couldn’t speak to what it actually felt like genitally, and, more importantly, if that would feel fun. I love the idea of swollen pussy lips, of a more sensitive clit so it’s easier to climax, or of clit growth so I can try jacking off in different ways. When Betty’s Toybox sent me the Doc Johnson Vibrating Rechargeable Automatic Pussy Pump, I was thrilled to explore how this new sensation might work for me. 

HOW THIS TOY WORKS
The Doc Johnson Vibrating Rechargeable Automatic Pussy Pump is 9.25” long, featuring a white handle with (from bottom to top) one pink button to control vibration, one pink button to control suction, and a white button for quick release. The suction cup is a clear, hard plastic –2” long and 3” wide– with a bright pink silicone rim. To turn the toy on, click either pink button once. The vibration button will cause the pump to cycle through 3 intensities and 4 patterns; the suction button adjusts through 3 levels of ‘suction control’. Holding either button down will turn off the correlated setting. With a 90 minute wait to full charge, you’d think the Pussy Pump would last longer than 60 minutes of use but it doesn’t. A travel lock can be equipped or unequipped by holding down both pink buttons simultaneously. 

HOW I USE THIS TOY
Some folks like to use pumps for growth, others find the increased stimulation itself pleasurable. I wanted to see if I could achieve either, or both, with this toy. 

The Pussy Pump features what can be laughably referred to as vibration. Rather than a strong enough rumble to hit deep internal pleasure endings, Pussy Pump’s vibration is super buzzy and exists only where the silicone rim of the suction cup connects to the body. If you want vibration in an oval around your labia, then this may be the toy for you?

Per the toy’s manual, you need to apply lube1preferably with water based lube to the bright pink silicone rim of the pump– and this is more than just a suggestion. When I used the Pussy Pump without lube, it was extremely difficult to get a seal. When I did get the seal to hold, I could only pump for a few seconds before my labia completely filled the suction cup, which resulted in  only a minimal amount of growth. With lube, the Pussy Pump worked better (but still not that well) but I had to lube the toy again after breaking the seal. My labia filled the toy almost immediately, which meant there was no growth to be had even though I left the suction aspect of the toy on for a while. After messing with the vibration patterns to no avail, I finally decided to call it quits. At that point, I did feel a bit more sensitive on my labia and a touch more sensitive on my clit but not noticeably enough to make it easier to get off. 

What’s additionally frustrating is button placement.When in use, the buttons on this pump are close to the clit and pubic mound. If you want to see them or adjust them, you have to contort the toy or your body (or both)–not that seeing them would be that much help for so few settings.

LUBE & CLEANING
The rim of this toy (the portion that makes contact with the body) is made from silicone, which can react with silicone lube; I recommend using a water based lube.

The Pussy Pump is not waterproof, so I recommend carefully cleaning the interior of the suction cup with soap or a 10% bleach solution and water.  Be sure to avoid the charging port at the base if/when cleaning the handle. 

PROs:

  • Technically, it works. 
  • Automated pumping ability

CONs:

  • Vibration is weak asf
  • Difficult to form a seal
  • Does not accommodate pussies-of-size
  • Overpriced
