FAQ: Will Clit Pumping Damage my Clit?

Clit pumping, illustrated!

A good example of the right size tube (for me). I haven’t “packed” it yet, so the pressure isn’t all on the end of my clit glans.

I get a lot of questions about my big clit, bodybuilding, clit pumping, and so on, on here—and on Fetlife, and even on Facebook—and I try to answer as many as I can, but I just can’t get to everyone. So I thought I would write up some of the most commonly asked ones, so that I can have time to get to more people!

The first question isn’t the most common one, but it’s close, and it’s one I answered recently: Will clit pumping damage my clit? The short answer (keep in mind, I am not a doctor): it has never done me any long-term harm.

Of course, I’m sure you could hurt yourself very badly if you really, really tried, but I have done some serious hardcore pumping for many years (close to a decade) and the worst that ever happened to me was getting a blister on my clit. I know; ouch, right? But that has happened exactly twice, in the many, many thousands of over-the-top, crazy, extreme pumping sessions I have had, and both times it was completely my fault. Did I enjoy the blister? Hell no. But it healed, my clitty recovered, and I started pumping again. Immediately. Because it just feels that good.

The Right Attitude
For safe pumping, the important thing is to go slow, and to increase the intensity gradually, over many sessions. Pump for 5 or 10 minutes at a time, without tons of pressure, and then take a break. Rinse and repeat as long as you like, pumping it a little harder each time, but make a conscious decision not to go for the gold medal your first few sessions. Because, although it’s hard to raise a blister (in my experience) it’s easy enough to pump too hard too fast, and the pinch of pain it can cause, while harmless, might seriously freak out a newbie. The skin stretches, but it does so slowly.

Tell yourself that you’re going to save a little bit for tomorrow night, no matter how much you are aching to try to get it a little harder. Better to be aching for more than to just be aching, right?

This is doubly the case if you are the pumper and someone else is the pumpee. If their first time is just so-so because you were a little cautious, that’s a hell of a lot better than scaring them off by overdoing it. Unless, of course, you have some kind of serious pain-giving relationship with them, in which case, I guess…whatever works for the two of you. My favorite kind of play, lately, is for someone else to be commanding me to pump myself. It generally takes me further than I would go myself, and yet I can tell exactly where the edge of too much is.

Never leave the tube on for more than 5 or 10 minutes, is my advice, no matter how advanced you think you are. It’s good to check that everything is ok, make sure you aren’t getting a blister, massage the blood til your clit is look a little less purple and a little more pink. And, really, it’s the between times when you are giving your clit a minute or two of rest that are the most fun; that’s when the masturbation is crazy good, that’s when you should be getting some quality oral sex!

The Right Pressure
You don’t ever need to use high pressure–you can get great results using lower pressure over longer sessions. I’ve gone all night before! That said, higher pressures can feel REALLY good.

The main risk seems to be getting a blister, which I have done exactly twice in about 8 or 10 years of very serious and intense pumping. Not a nice experience, but not the end of the world. If you go slow and gradual, you will probably never get one.

The Right Tube
I like to have a range of tubes, partly for variety and fun, but also partly to avoid discomfort. Once you have really “packed” the tube you are using (where your clit is touching the sides all the way to the tip of your clit) all the pressure is on the end of the clit glans. That can lead to a blister, if you leave it on too long–that’s how I got one of mine.

The solution is to have a few tubes of different widths; as you do a pumping session, as your clit gets fuller and fatter, move up to a wider tube. The tradeoff is that if the tube is really wide, your clit will mostly expand sideways instead of lengthwise. That’s fun and nice too, but my goal tends to be length more than width. You’ll have to work out the length and girth thing yourself, based on trial and error and your own preferences.

So, that’s my answer. It’s worth pointing out, that I’m not an expert on pumping in general; just in pumping of my own clit (and nipples). your clit will certainly respond differently than mine, so take all these tips with a grain of salt!

Hope you have fun, feel free to ask more questions or tell me about your experiences in the comments. I’d love to hear about them. Also, be sure to tell me what other questions you’d like to see in my FAQ! Finally, if this isn’t clear, or you have additional advice, please be sure to tell me in the comments.

  1. Wow now that gave me a blue steel hardon! Still want to suck you all night 🙂

  2. Thanks for a very informative article!! i am planning on getting a pump of my own in the very near future and yes I am a bit worried about damage to my bits. So are you saying it’s okay to pump for 5-10 minutes then take a break for a while and I could safely pump again after a while?

  3. I would be around to be able to touch and suck this delicious clit

  4. I love this.And always will until i rest upstairs

  5. Interesting information. For a guy that can’t pump his clit, that is 😉 And a stunning picture, as always.

  6. Need to get back to pumping. I love your love button and want to look as close to your as possible. Mine is basically non existent and that’s sad.

  7. I keep wondering what your clear soft cup is that you use for your double pup clit technique. It produces such a beautiful and sexy result!! I love how you are able to stroke your glans in the hood just as a man could in his foreskin after pumping. That is incredibly sexy, Rikochan! And something as a woman and fellow pumper I have been trying to achieve. Do you think you could give me any tips?

  8. Emmy, I can try! Rub vitamin E oil into your glans and all up under the hood, or modify a q-tip so the head is smaller (and make sure it’s soft still) and get the oil up in there really good. It will free up your glans and hood and the sensations will make ur clit bigger. We’ve almost tripled the size of my wife through this method over the last few years, and with pumping, she’s 1/2″ inch wide now and as long!

  9. thomas keelan :
    I would luv to see that myself.

  10. Always love the beautiful photos of your clitcock

  11. I would like to see her masturbating and showing this beautiful clitoris, showing your face

  12. My clit got bigger after 2 times
    Is it ok to keep doin it
    I like it huge if I can. Its much better than the small ones

    • Wow, that’s great…sounds like you are getting good results. Is it ok to keep doing it? Why not, I say! The only opinion that matters is yours, and if you want it to be huge, I say you should go for it! I would definitely recommend taking pics to track your progress. I’m sooo glad I did, and I wish I had started sooner. If you do take pictures, consider sharing them here…I have done a clit of the day picture in a while, but I would love to do a new one soon, featuring an amateur clitty! 🙂 ~Riko

  13. Hi There,

    I am wondering if this pump can help. I had a normal to protrude size clitoris and this morning while in the shower I notice my clitoris disappeared. I am 48 years old and it could be from low testosterone, but did not have a low libido at all and just noticed this issue. I wonder if the pump can help me bring it back.

  14. Can people with small “clits” still be able to pump??

    • Sure! I’ve seen lots of pictures of ladies with smaller clits pumping. They all seemed to enjoy it. You can pump your labia too…that’s also a LOT of fun.

  15. *sighs* Looking at your big beautiful clit fills me with arousal and envy. I just started pumping myself after wanting to for a very long time. I think I have an average sized clit, but would love to make it bigger. Around how long of regular pumping would you say to expect some kind of change?

    • It’s hard to say…I’ve been doing it for many years, and mine did start out big, too. It’s a matter of changing it by percentages not by multiples, if that makes sense. It’s slow going, but it worthwhile and fun getting there!

  16. Ok I have a few questions….does this elongate your clit for good or is it a temporary thing? I want to enlarge my clit naturally and I want it to stay large id say maybe 1.5 to 2 inches. Would pumping be a good method?

  17. I had a guy use a pump on me about a week ago… My clit has been so swollen and sensitive since then. I am so uncomfortable. It is like… so sensitive to where direct contact with it hurts. What could be wrong? I can’t see anything physically wrong with it.

  18. I am so glad you had this up. I tried a pump for the first time and loved it… I just had a mild aneurysm when I found a little bit of blood in the pump. It doesnt hurt at all f.y.i. I think I just pulled too hard for the first time… article was very informative and calmed me from thinking I broke it.

  19. How long does it take to get to a size of 3 inches

  20. first i would like to say that your clit is a true work of art….extremely impressive. you can reduce the risk of blisters by wet pumping. if your tube is big enough,you can put some water in it before pumping.it reduces the strain of the vacuum on your skin.men have been doing this for years with penis pumps.
