Last Updated on September 28, 2020

The best clit suckers really SUCK! (However that is a GOOD thing!) If you've wondered what is a clit sucker or searched online how to use a clit pump, this complete guide will answer all of your questions.

Want more? Watch my video demonstrations on different types of vibrating clitoris pumps and vagina sucker toys for women so you can easily decide which toy you'll like best.

Today we'll talk a little bit about these powerful female clit pumps & toys for suction and answer common questions I receive on a regular basis. I'll offer some tips & techniques and let you know the best way to use one to enjoy one of the most erotically charged and kinky sensations a lady could experience.

What is a Clit Sucker?

It seems fairly self explanatory, but in reality these are complex little devices and many people don't fully understand what is a clit sucker. It's a clitoral sucking toy designed to replicate fellatio or the sensation of oral sex and/or licking from a partner. The secret of sexual pleasure comes solely from powerful concentrated vacuum over the targeted body part.

Optional wireless vibration is an additional feature we see on most clit sucking sex toys. Some women can climax from the clitoral suction vibrator alone, others require additional stimulation from a vibrating sex toy to really make the sexual experience complete.

The clit sucking toy is a device that rests over the clitoris, vagina (or both) and offers a complete air seal allowing vacuum suction to build inside the device when air is pumped out with a hand bulb. There are many moving parts working hand in hand to create the stimulating suction. There are some clitoral suckers that have many complicated parts and some even vibrate.

Several clit pumps are fashioned like butterfly vibrators, these types are larger and typically cover the labia too and create a fuller pumped feel compared to the pinpoint reach of the tiny round cups.

The butterfly styles are commonly used by couples during foreplay, the stimulation is less direct and more subtle so it helps gals with vaginal dryness get in the mood for sex.

There is a little secret that I'll elaborate on later about how we can use a nipple sucker as a clit pump. Yes it is true they are completely interchangeable because the nipple has relatively the same footprint as a clitoris, so many savvy customers will buy a nipple sucker and use it on the clitoris.

Its' a sneaky way to save money because nipple suction devices are typically cheaper than clitoral suction toys.

How Does a Clit Sucker Work?

When you press the toy over the clitoris or labia and pump out the air, the opposite reaction occurs within the toy's cannister or cup; the result is whatever body part is inside the device gets sucked upwards. It's physics in motion and actually, the same concept as a penis vacuum pump for men, just in a much tinier package!

Inside the body, blood is forced into the section of skin that is being suctioned into the device. When blood flows near the surface of skin, it feels tingly, more sensitive and warmer than normal.

The result when this process takes place directly over top of the clitoris is a massive boost to sexual pleasure. You'll find out more when you learn how to use a clit pump below.

When the clitoris is engorged with blood, it feels very sensitive and reacts better to touch, licks and rubs. It's a similar concept as when a man gets an erection.

His penis tissue fills with blood and gets firm and more sensitive. He likes his erection being touched, it feels good. It's the exact same thing to the female clitoris. It just BEGS to be touched!

Another thing happens to the clitoris that is comparable to a man getting an erection by using a penis pump: it gets larger and firmer! Most women notice the clit grows larger and firmer.

Men instinctively find a large clit highly erotic. With this knowledge, women secretly use a clitoral pump before their lover comes to enhance her visual appeal. It's a little secret of women everywhere on how to seduce men!

What does a Clit Sucker Pump Feel Like?

You'll notice a few things during clitoris pumping:

  1. A “tingling” sensation
  2. Your vagina gets wet
  3. It feels more sensitive to touch
  4. The clit gets bigger (temporarily)

You'll feel wet almost instantly upon use. The intense, precise stimulation encourages the body to prepare for sex, and the way it does that is to lubricate the vagina! Women who experience vaginal dryness benefit from using a clitoral sucker toy.

Since the sensation of touching is vastly amplified, it improves sexual stimulation. When a extra sensitive pumped clitoris is touched, the body has a natural reaction to lubricate the vagina in preparation for sexual intercourse.

In the case of vaginal dryness, stimulating the clitoris is a great way to encourage the body to be sexually responsive. It's all physiology – the clit sucking forces the clitoral tissue to be engorged with blood and makes it more sensitive.

Elaborating more on the point of pumping blood into the tissue, this is why it looks bigger and puffier. Men LOVE the look of a puffy clitoris. It stimulates their sexual desire for you.

In fact, many strippers, porn stars, adult film actresses and exotic dancers use a clit sucker before their big act. It looks better on film, it's larger as they dance for their clients. The result is quite astounding.

Some women buy a clit sucker to get a bigger clitoris, but it's important to note the size gain is only temporary. The clitoris will return to its natural size & state after sexual stimulation has ceased.

Instructions - How to Use a Clit Sucker:

  1. Wipe a small drop of lubricant around the edge of the sucker cup. (This helps to seal the air and produces stronger vacuum suction.)
  2. Press the lubricated cup over the clitoris or vagina. (Be sure not to get public hair inside the cup or it may cause an air leak and you'll have reduced suction power).
  3. Hold the cup with one hand and squeeze the bulb with the other hand. Squeeze the bulb until the device is suctioned to your body and you feel a tingle. (Do not pump to the point where you feel pain, you may cause blood vessels to erupt!)
  4. If your clitoral suction toy has a vibrator, activate the motor now.
  5. You can leave the device in place for several minutes. If being used for sexual enjoyment, now is the time to use your favorite dildo or vibrator and enjoy a great orgasm.
  6. When you're done, press the quick release button, located on either the device itself or the hand bulb to instantly reverse the vacuum and remove the toy.

4 Types of Clit Sucking Toys:

Looking through a catalog of clitoral suckers can be confusing. There are so many different looking styles. It's certainly not like buying a dildo where they all appear relatively similar, certainly one of the more peculiar type of sex toys that remains largely unknown. These have assorted shapes, sizes and features. These are some styles that are most common:

  1. Small Oblong Shaped Cup
  2. These are designed specifically for targeted clitoral suction. The ergonomic egg shaped cup nestles under the labia hood and fits perfectly around the base of the clit. This style produces the most powerful suction of all types.

  3. Large Oblong Shaped Cup
  4. These are more commonly called “vagina pumps” or “pussy pumps” because they target a wider area on the body. They create vacuum suction over the labia and vagina together. This is the style that gives the area a puffy appearance and is the top choice for exotic dancers. I published a list of the best vagina & pussy pumps, so check 'em out!

  5. Textured Clit Suckers
  6. These sucking toys can be either tiny or big, but they all have 1 feature in common: They have ticklers or soft spikes lining the interior of the cup. When the vacuum suction pulls the skin into the cup, it comes into contact with these textured nubs and increase erotic enjoyment.

  7. Vibrating Clit Suckers
  8. Adding an insane boost of pleasure, the vibration takes the whole experience to turbo mode! Since these devices are so tiny to begin with, the vibration is minimal simply because there isn't much space to hold batteries. As a result, they are one of the best quiet vibrators. If you prefer discreet toys that operate in near silence, the vibrating clit sucker is a fantastic choice.

Can I use a Nipple Sucker on my Clitoris?

Yes, absolutely! I mentioned that briefly above, but I'll elaborate further now. A nipple sucker toy and a clitoral sucker toy are completely interchangeable.

The only major difference in nipple toys are round to fit around the nipple and areola whereas clit suckers are typically oblong to fit under the hood and around the clitoris (if you research the clitoral anatomy, it's not completely round, hence the egg shaped design!)

Just because the device is circular and completely round does not mean it won't work. It will still produce excellent suction. Some women prefer using nipple sucking toys on the clit because they are smaller and more hands-free. The typical clitoral based suction sex toy has tubing and hand bulb whereas nipple toys typically do not.

If you wan to have sex or walk around wearing a clit sucker, using a nipple toy on your clitoris is a better option because it's less cumbersome and has less parts, also it's lighter weight than the traditional style with tubes and a hand bulb.

If you're looking for a new design then consider buying a nipple toy for the clitoris. You can also learn how to use nipple sucker toys here too.

Best Clit Pumps you Must Have:

Personal preference prevails because it depends on what features you like and how sensitive your clitoris is to touch. Typically women who are shopping for clitoral suction devices do not have overly sensitive clitorises because these produce lots of stimulation and if you're new to womens sex toys, this may not be one to try first!

With that being said, I'll assume you want a powerful toy. So that narrows down the selection to one with an oblong cup and ticklers inside. Add vibration too, this can make the difference between a gradually building orgasm to instant orgasm. They seriously are that substantial, the following is my list of 12 best clit pumps:


1. Vibrating Clitoral Sucker

This one packs a PUNCH! The Vibrating Clitoral Sucker is the strongest clit pump I've ever seen. It's wireless and compact so it has none of the issues facing the styles with long tubing. The bulb attaches directly to the top of the vibrator and it's quite big compared to the small device, so one squeeze is all you need to ram the clitoris high into the deep cup.

Turn the cap on the other end and it activates the motor. The vibration is intense and tingling. The only complaint on this toy is there is no quick release valve so you'll have to manually pick out the clit. This toy is NOT for sensitive clitorises!



2. Penetrating Clitoral Pump

In addition to pumping, this one has a telescoping solid textured nub that extends & retracts along the shaft to tease the vagina opening and provide titillating vibration. The culmination of stimuli is enough to produce a fabulously strong orgasm. Perfection, I must say!

The original design of the Penetrating Clitoral Pump is highly unique and innovative – successfully I might add! It's actually a high quality pleasure tool for ladies who want a boost of intimate pleasure, and is one of my personal best clit pumps that I love to suggest to all first timers out there.


3. Advanced Clitoral Pump

This discreet and pretty clitoral vibrator for women offers a good amount of suction – not too weak, not too strong. As a result the Advanced Clitoral Pump is the go-to for most women and the one I recommend most.

Seniors enjoy this stimulator because it helps the vagina produce natural lubrication; therefore, is great to use before sexual intercourse and as a part of foreplay. It features a built-in wireless vibrator that enhances sensation subtly. This is also the best choice for someone shopping for a first timers clitoral suction vibrator.


4. Suck Her

This fabulous tiny wireless vibrating clit pump has a stiff enough cup to surround the magic button and draw the hood into the deep cup with extreme pressure – all for extreme pleasure! It's also one of the more discreet models and the easiest to use.

You'll find the quick release vale a good addition here because the power is almost too much for some women. If you like to give the clitoris a good beating, choose the wireless Suck Her now. You'll be happy with your new purchase, I promise!


5. Turbo Suction Tongue

A combination of oral sex simulation toy and vagina pump, the Turbo Suction Tongue has extra thick stiff jelly lips and a lightly flexible tongue that inserts about 1 inch into the vagina. It's surely one of the most original sex toys for women.

The vibration feels higher intensity due to the tiny motor deep inside the probe. The base has a round suction cup so you can squat on this over your bathtub, and the pumping action imitates a lover's deep kiss.


6. Original Clitoral Pump

This is the original style that first came into the market decades ago. It still holds its own in the world of newly innovated clitoral suction pump toys because it has a solid plastic cup with removable silicone sleeve that produces enough suction to keep any lady happy.

The Original Clitoral Pump includes a silicone sleeve that adds a layer of warm and comfort without sacrificing pumping potential. Wireless vibrator lessens the burden of extra cords getting in your way too.


7. Venus Butterfly Pump

An innovative design that seems to be creating waves in the sex toy world, the Venus Butterfly Pump is a powerful tool for intimate arousal. The user can control the depth of penetration while the labia get drawn into the large silicone padded solid cup. The wireless vibrator has rows of firm spikes that tease the vaginal opening, try it as a precursor to lovemaking!


8. Butterfly Pump

A more sedate version of the toy displayed directly above, the Butterfly Pump has the most feminine appeal of all clitoral pumps for women. It is the top choice for beginners because if its friendly appearance, but don't be fooled – it's all business once nestled against your body!

Long ticklers flex and nestle against your labia while the wide butterfly body rests perfectly in the palm of your hand. Vibration and suction is more subtle and gentle so it's the best toy not to scare a timid beginner and well suited to a sensitive senior.


9. Vibro Bunny Sucker

This is not a vagina sucker per se; it;s more of a general stimulator, a jelly soft, ultra squishy and highly flexible device that introduces a woman to the sensation of mild pumping and soothing vibration.

It is the softest and squishiest of all clit suckers so it doesn't have the potential for strong pumping (the device needs to be firm to create a solid air vacuum), so women who simply want a light tease will choose the Vibro Bunny Sucker. If you're into intense suction, skip this one and choose a model that has a stiffer more rounded cup.


10. Contour Clit Pump

Made specifically for women with large clitorises, the Contour Clit Pump has the widest and longest of all solid suction cups. The pumping action parallels any other smaller cup and the interior of the smooth silky silicone layered cup has ticklers for added sensation.

Sleek stylish design and wireless vibration complete the luxurious looking package. It's so simple that if you've wondered how to use a clit pump, the basic design is virtually self explanatory!


11. Pussy Pump

The largest and most complete option that offers the widest swatch of coverage, the Pussy Pump is the choice for exotic dancers before they go on stage. Why? Pumping the vagina and labia makes it look puffy and swollen which is a natural aphrodisiac for men.

The downside of such a big device is that it's totally solid and honestly not that comfortable to use. You'll need to press it firmly over your body to create an air vacuum, and using lube will help to create that extra bit of sealing that produces a more powerful vacuum.


12. Womens Intimate Pump

A toned down version of the Pussy Pump above, the Womens Intimate Pump is better suited to smaller (more petite) women who still want the fame swollen puffy look for their men. I must mention that it's not just for guys to enjoy however; to have your lips engorged and swollen increases your sensitivity and makes each touch, lick and kiss even more erotic.

Some women really enjoy the vagina pump before their lover performs oral sex, and this one if the best choice to try with your lover for that purpose.


Notable Mention: Best Clit Pump Vibrator:

Air Touch Clitoral Suction Vibrator

Air Touch Clit Suction Vibrator

The new & amazing Air Touch Clit Suction Vibrator is the next generation of clitoral sucking vibrators for women. It is a rechargeable vibrator that inserts into the vagina. Notice that forward curved shaft? It is perfectly shaped for G-spot stimulation.

The suction cup rests over the clitoris and has very soft sides so regardless of your body shape or how deep your vagina is, you'll be able to get the right fit. This rechargeable wireless vibrator has automatic suction; simply press a button and it begins! I love this one because it culminates everything a woman needs for a good, strong orgasm: vaginal vibration, G-spot stimulation AND clitoral suction.


How to Clean a Clitoral Sucking Toy

Wash the suction cup with antibacterial sex toy cleaner or liquid hand soap and rinse well with water. Avoid getting too much water into the tubing because it can be difficult to completely dry out. If the wireless vibrator is connected to the toy, do not get water into the battery compartment.

When storing your clitoral sucking vibrator, be sure not to crimp or bend the tubing because if it stays that way for prolonged periods of time, the tubing can weaken and possible tear. Roll the tubing up in a circular motion before storing to prevent kinks.

In Conclusion

The clitoral sucking sex toy is one of those unique little niches of kinky female erotic devices that enhance sexual pleasure. They are little known and vastly misunderstood, but I hope this guide has answered your questions and if you didn't know what a clit sucker is, and don't know how to use one, you should be well versed in the topic now!

They are excellent to use for ladies with vaginal dryness. They are awesome when combined with a dildo. It makes you feel super horny, and is perfect to sue before a sexual encounter with your liver. The clit sucker has many uses and is a worthy addition to any womens sex toys collection.
