We know you like to keep your sex life fresh. You're always looking for enhancements that will invigorate your masturbation sessions because you've been in a sexual relationship with yourself longer than with anyone else. If you're looking for a new way to enjoy your next solo sesh (or something fun to add to partnered sex), a clit pump may provide the powerful surge of stimulation you want.

Sex toys improve masturbation and partnered sex by delivering targeted stimulation to just the right spots. If you're an experienced sex toy user, you’ve likely encountered rabbit vibrators, g-spot vibrators, and maybe even butt plugs.

If you're looking to broaden your sex toy horizons, our guide to underrated sex toys may give you some inspiration. We'll cover clit pumps, pussy pumps, clitoral suction devices, finger vibes, and bullet vibes, as well as sex furniture you can incorporate into your play sessions.

Suction toys

Suction sex toys aren't new. Penis pumps have been around since at least the 1960s, when men used them to treat erectile dysfunction. The technology is improved, but still operates on the same basic principle: using suction to bring blood flow to the genitals. Now, suction devices exist for vulva owners as well as penis owners because we all deserve a little extra blood flow.

Clitoral pumps

When you are aroused, blood flow to your vulva increases. Increased blood flow enlarges your clitoris, stimulates lubrication, and provides that "I need to be touched now" sensation. Clit pumps and pussy pumps use suction to increase blood flow to that region to give your arousal (and clitoris) a boost.

Clit pumps fit in between your labia just over the glans of your clitoris (the little button at the top of your vulva). They use a vacuum pump to enlarge your clitoris. Enlarging your clitoris makes it more sensitive and easier to hit during penetrative sex, which means easier clitoral stimulation and more powerful orgasms.

Once you engage the air release on the pump, your clitoris is likely to stay enlarged and super-sensitive for a bit. Take advantage of the sensitivity provided by all that extra blood flow and start experimenting!

Pussy pumps

Pussy pumps work the same way as clit pumps, but the suction cup fits over the entire vulva and encourages blood flow to the whole genital area. These larger pumps can be beneficial for people who struggle with lubrication. Blood flow to your genitals is necessary for lubrication, and a pussy pump may help prime your body for sexual activity.

Pussy and clit pumps are safe to use. They have a built-in quick-release valve to allow the air pressure to escape before removing it from your genitals. Locate and learn to use the valve before you start to ensure you know how to remove it quickly in case the sensation is stronger than you want. Before you use it, coat the rim of the clit pump with water-based lube. Lube will protect against tissue damage and create the vacuum suction required for the device to work.

Clitoral suction toys

Like a clit pump, clitoral suction devices use air to stimulate the clitoris. Suction devices like Aer from Dame mimic oral sex by creating a soft seal around your clitoris and using air pulses. If you're interested in the sensation of a clit pump but a bit intimidated by the intensity, a suction toy may be an excellent place to start. You'll get a mild dose of suction and plenty of pleasure.

Vibrating toys you may have forgotten about

Do you remember your first vibrator? Maybe it was a bullet vibe small enough to hide from your roommate, or perhaps it was a phallic-shaped wand for external stimulation. When we move on to rabbit vibrators and the like, it's easy to forget their smaller counterparts. Bringing some of these toys back into your solo sessions can refresh your routine. Try using them alongside a clit pump or suction toy to double your pleasure.

Finger vibes

Once you've used your new clitoris pump to bring blood flow to the area, it's time to enjoy the enhanced sensations you get from increased blood flow. If you like masturbating with your hands, adding a finger vibe into the mix can kick your clit stimulation into high gear.

Finger vibes are silicone devices made to fit your fingers like a ring or nestle between your fingers. They have various vibration patterns, so you can customize the type of stimulation.

Finger vibrators and other wearable vibrators aren't just for masturbation. Many people enjoy using them with a partner during foreplay or to provide direct clitoral stimulation during penetrative sex.

Bullet vibes

People often overlook bullet vibes because of their size. They're tiny—often small enough to hide in your pocket. Don't let their size fool you, bullet vibes provide versatile pleasure during solo and partnered sex.

Bullet vibes work well for external stimulation of your erogenous zones. Try turning one on and running it along your neck, the inside of your wrists, your breasts, or inner thighs.

You can also use a bullet vibe with one of the other sex toys we've mentioned to ramp up the pleasure. Try using a clit pump while stimulating your nipples with a bullet vibrator. Once you release air pressure on the pump, tease your clitoris with the bullet vibe for intense ripples of pleasure.

Nipple clamps

Stimulating more than one erogenous zone during sex intensifies your pleasure. Adding in nipple clamps while you experiment with a clit pump may just help you achieve multiple orgasms.

Nipple clamps are popular in BDSM circles, but you don't have to be into hardcore kink play to enjoy them. Many models are adjustable, so you can customize the pressure against your nipples. Most come attached to a chain like sex jewelry that you or a partner can tug gently to try out new sensations.

Sex furniture

If you're into changing up your positions, try purchasing a sex pillow designed to support your body so you can let go and enjoy the exploration. Dame designed Pillo to keep your hips elevated while you're enjoying missionary sex or to help you find new ways to enjoy your favorite toys during a solo session.

If you're looking more for adventure than comfortable support, introducing a sex swing (or an aerial yoga hammock!) can allow you to explore positions and rhythms you just can't find unless you're suspended in the air.

Combining either of these options with your new clit pump or suction device will allow you to get just the right angle against your clitoris during masturbation or partnered sex.

Explore away

Sex is about exploring bodies—this is true whether you're solo or partnered. Sometimes that exploration feels easy and natural for us, and other times we need a new sex toy to inspire us to break out of our comfort zone.
