Beginner's Guide To Vacuum Pumps

  <div class=

Are you as pumped up as we are? Well, you’re about to be! Here at UberKinky, we are firm believers that size DOES matter, so if you’re ready for the BIG time but still aren’t sure of all the ins and outs, our Beginner’s Guide to Vacuum Pumps is an essential addition to your reading list.

Vacuum pumps are designed to increase the blood flow to your intimate area, stimulating instant growth that guarantees to make you swell with pride. In addition, a pump will deliver sensational sucking and make you or your sub hypersensitive to every tantalising touch or sadistic stroke. What could be better? So, whether it’s superior stimulation, glorious gratification, larger than life loving, or x-rated BDSM play that you desire, you have definitely come to the right place! This is one vacuum designed for getting ‘dirty’ rather than keeping clean, so ‘suck it up’ and get started. But remember to play safely...

Reasons You Should Try Penis Pumps

Reasons You Should Try Penis Pumps

Don’t get penis pumps? Think it’s not the size, but what you do with it that counts? Well, we’re all for airing opinions, but even those that are hung like a horse will want to big up these deviant devices, and here are 6 UberKinky reasons why;

Penis Pumps - Heightened Sensitivity

Men can be sensitive too...

A little sensitive when it comes to your sausage? Well, trust us; sensitivity can certainly be a good thing! Pumping increases blood flow to your best bit, thereby making it all the more susceptible to every tantalising touch, supreme stroke or luscious lick. The increased circulation causes the skin of the penis to feel warm and tingly, but also ensures that every sensation is magnified, for unrivalled intensity. Here at UberKinky we like to take advantage of it by taking a pinwheel for a quick spin. We promise you’ll never ‘tyre’ of it!

Penis Pumps - Sensational Suction

You’ll be a sucker for that sweet sensation...

Don’t be a sucker; nothing compares to the sweet sensation of a penis pump! Deep throating with a difference, the pump draws all of the air out of the cylinder so that your manhood receives a mischievous massage. In addition to the unique sensation felt as the penis expands, it delivers what feels like most incredible blow job known to man. So, be prepared to blow your load within seconds. Use on its own, or as foreplay when there’s simply no time to waste. Now... suck on that!

Penis Pumps - Size Matters

Dream big; expand mind and penis...

Size matters... FACT! So get ready to turn those big dreams into a reality, because you’ll be living it large when you pump up your penis. When the air pressure is decreased in the pumping cylinder a void/vacuum is created. In order to fill this void, the penis expands. The expansion will continue whether the pressure is increased or not. When removed your manhood is maximised and ready for action. So prepare to go deeper than ever and provide gratification like never before. The benefits really are sizable!

Penis Pumps - Prolonged Pleasure

A powerful, long lasting and uplifting experience...

Want an uplifting experience? Pumping the penis encourages extra blood to fill up the tissue. This results in a fuller, more powerful and longer lasting erection. That means you’ll have greater stamina and be able to put in the performance of a lifetime. Additionally, achieving an erection is much easier, whether you suffer with erectile dysfunction, or you’re simply having a little trouble getting in the mood recently. On top of all that, orgasms are prolonged and much more intense. So, you’ll have a hard time finding anything better!

Penis Pumps - Lifted Libido

Turbo-charge your sex life and it will drive you wild...

Trust us; it will drive you wild! A penis pump increases blood flow to your best bits. Over time this can result in an increased libido. There are many reasons why we men suffer with a lack of libido, whether it’s low mood, stress or nutritional deficiencies. But by increasing blood flow to the nether regions, your body will automatically become more easily aroused, which is certain to steer your sex drive back in the right direction. So why not turbo-charge your sex life and enjoy play that’s never been better?

Penis Pumps - Health Benefits

Healthy living with a deviant difference...

Forget your 5 a day; this is a much more enjoyable way of keeping yourself healthy! Regular use of a penis pump improves oxygenation of penile tissues, enhances blood flow and prevents formation of cavernosal fibrosis, all of which can reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction. It can also act as a temporary solution (by enabling an erection) for those that have poor blood flow, diabetes, anxiety/depression, or that have had prostate surgery or colon cancer. It puts an all new twist on healthy living!


Safety First!

Listen up UberKinky friends! Safety doesn’t happen by accident, so it’s crucial that you read this section before your ego becomes well and truly inflated.

You know how much we love to play here at UberKinky ;) But one thing we never play around with is your safety! Performed correctly, vacuum pumping is completely safe, but as always, there are a few things to be mindful of. It is important that you stop immediately if you experience any pain or notice any discolouration, blisters or red spots.

Don’t overdo it! Overpumping can have the opposite effect of that desired, in some cases desensitising the area in question. It can also damage the tissue, cause oedema (accumulation of fluid just under the skin) and even affect circulation. There's no need to panic; just follow our advice and you can feel fully protected in your pumping play! The tissue will remain slightly swollen for a couple of hours after the pump is removed, but will return to ‘normal’ after this time.

Remember; a little pumping goes a long way.



  • Stop if you experience any pain or loss of sensation
  • Trim any rogue hairs to avoid snagging and seal problems
  • Rest for at least 24 hours if you notice any red spots, blood spots or reddening of the area
  • Use plenty of lubricant – it is essential to the seal, but also prevents windburn


  • Apply too much pressure too soon - listen to your body (if using a gauge, do not exceed 5hg)
  • Pump for more than 15 minutes without a break
  • Pump every day, it is important to rest in between

Which Vacuum Pump Should I Choose?

If you’re like us, we bet you have a weak spot for sensual/sadistic satisfaction! So, it’s likely that you’ve already picked your pumping patch, be it nipple, breast, vagina, clitoris or penis. Great, but there are a variety of pumps available, so how do you choose the one that’s right for you? Well, have no fear; UberKinky is on hand to assist you in your mission to ‘pump it up’, so here's our product breakdown. We categorise vacuum pumps into six main types;

Squeeze Pump

Squeeze Pump

Slow and steady wins the race! A hand held bulb connects to the cylinder/cup via a tube. It is ideal for applying low and gradual pressure.

Hand Trigger

Hand Trigger

Hand trigger pumps are perhaps the easiest vacuum pumps to use. They can also generate a great deal of suction; however you will need to be careful not to apply too much.

Electric Pump

Electric Pump

For those that crave shocking results! An electric pump does all of the hard work for you, however it does take away an element of control.

Water Pump

Water Pump

Fancy going for a dip? Warm water in the pump stimulates blood flow and improves circulation, thereby adding to sensitivity. The power of the water also increases the suction. We recommend some training before diving into this water.

Twist Pump

Twist Pump

Gives an all new meaning to doing the 'twist'! A twist pump delivers impressive suction and allows you to remain firmly in control. The screw-like design allows for precision pressure, making it an ideal choice for beginners as well as more experienced players.



They may be small, but they're mighty little suckers! Beginners who love to experiment with sensation play should definitely give these a try. As the pressure is constant but low, these are a good choice for the BDSM novice and enthusiasts alike. Like all pumps, they should not be left on for more than 15 minutes.

Getting Started

Getting Started

So you’ve heard that vacuum pumping really “sucks”?! Well this is definitely one instance where "sucks" is a good thing, and when it comes to sucking, you can’t beat a bit of vacuum therapy. As your new toy is already a pro, it’s essential that we also get you up to speed. So, follow this step by step guide for vacuuming that is always a pleasure and never a chore;

  1. Massage the area– if using a penis pump, make sure the penis is semi or fully erect prior to pumping
  2. Penis pumping only: perform some jelqs – this allows the penis to become accustomed to the additional pressure
  3. Apply lubricant to the area and the inner base of the pump, this will help to create an airtight seal
  4. Ensure that the air release valve is closed
  5. Apply suction cup/cylinder to the desired area
  6. Hold in place and slowly pump to increase the pressure
  7. The cylinder/ cup should now stay in place through suction only (if it is falling off, you will need to start again)
  8. Pump for between 10-15 minutes

Go slowly; it’s important that you give your body time to get used to the added pressure and new sensations. You may wish to add pumping to your BDSM play for sadistic satisfaction, if so remember the basics; use plenty of lubricant, don’t pump for more than 15 minutes and maintain a low, steady pressure (if using a gauge we recommend 3hg).

Which Lubricant?

There’s no need for lubricant when pumping, right? Wrong! Lubricant is essential to this play. It not only prevents windburn caused by friction between the pump and skin, but it is also vital for creating that all important vacuum. When applied to the base of the cylinder/cup and the skin, the lubricant creates a tight seal, stopping any air from seeping in.

A pumper’s paradise wouldn’t be complete without a water based lube; however you may wish to try a silicone or hybrid formula if you are confident that your toy contains no reactive ingredients (if unsure, check out our Beginner’s Guide to Sex Toy Materials).
