The Vibrating Pleasure Pump from Good Vibrations is combination suction and vibration toy.
The Vibrating Pleasure Pump is made from a combination of plastic, TPR, and rubber. Fortunately, the only rubber is the bulb you use to pump the suction. The body is hard plastic with a flexible rubber neck and power button. It’s 7 1/2″ long and 1 3/4″ in diameter. It comes with two TPR suction sleeves that are 2″ long and 1 1/2″ wide. One sleeve has “titillating pleasure nubs” and the other is plain. The plastic tubing is about 15″ long. The rubber bulb is 3 1/4″ long, 1 1/2″ in diameter, and has raised hearts on it. The colors and design of the Pleasure Pump are cute and feminine without being overly girly. The materials used are phthalate-free and body safe, and the rubber should cause no problems for people without sensitivities as this is not an insertable sex toy. The box states that the Vibrating Pleasure Pump is waterproof. However, I think it’s more water-safe for cleaning. The little scrap of directions it comes with clearly show you should dip the the TPR sleeve in water rather than stick it under running water. I suggest removing the sleeve, which is very easy to do, and washing it under water. Then just wipe down the handle with a damp cloth or a sex toy wipe.
The Vibrating Pleasure Pump is easy to use once you get the hang of the suction, which is mostly placement. Place the suction sleeve firmly over the area you to suck and squeeze the ball to pump the air. It’s a bit like a a blood pressure cuff. I feel the suction immediately. I get about three pumps in before the bulb can’t suck anymore air into the tubing. When you want to release the air, you can press the little plastic heart button or simply pull the suction sleeve away from your body.
This is the first time I’ve used a pump and it’s an interesting experience. I find I get more suction from the pleasure nub sleeve than I do from the flat sleeve. I also find I get more suction on my nipples than on my clit. I’m sure that’s just the way I’m built. It could very likely be different for someone else. The suction feels like someone sucking on my nipple or clitoral area without the slimy wetness. I’ve discovered I really enjoy the suction but I wish I could get a stronger sensation with this this pump. The suction hasn’t really been enough to create increased sensitivity, as I was hoping, but perhaps I am impatient. I may need to use the suction for longer periods of time before the sensitivity kicks in.
One downside is that I really need to hold the suction cup in place even after suction has been achieved. I’d like to be able to let go but as soon as I do, it falls off…which is one of the reasons I’d prefer a stronger suction. I also find the Vibrating Pleasure Pump to be a rather weak vibrator. As it is a rather buzzy, high-pitched vibrator, the lack of strength is good. It doesn’t numb me out and makes for a good warm up. I find myself returning to the Vibrating Pleasure Pump for my nipples rather than my clit, so having two heads would be an added bonus.
Vibrating Pleasure Pump Pros:
– Both vibration and suction
Vibrating Pleasure Pump Cons:
– Not the strongest suction or vibration
– Not hands-free
I really enjoy the combination of suction and vibration on my nipples. However, I wish I could let go once the suction is in place and I’d really like more power from this toy. This would work well for someone who is looking for softer suction with a vibration component. I love the idea of this sex toy, but it doesn’t work as well for me in practice. It just sort of misses the mark.
