Help! It's Stuck In The Pump!

Pump it up! Great quality pump for smaller to average men. There were a couple of times I was worried about removal and it sounded like a duck was in the bedroom twice. So, average size or smaller, keep the hunting dogs outside and pump away!
Simple design.
Good quality.
Silicone donut included.
Too short.
Donut too tight.
Difficult removal.

useful review


The So Pump is obviously a penis pump, widely used for solo male masturbation and temporary penis enlargement. However, it can also be used to stimulate a woman's nipples and clitoral area, (not vaginal-I was warned by another member this could be dangerous - thanks!) making her a bit more sensitive. I liked the clear plastic, which allowed me to watch him pump it up an inch or two at a time. Until it got stuck. The TPE donut was very small, and with a bit of pumping, caused some serious pain.

We tried it a few times, varying how he held it and also with me pumping him, but the result was pretty much the same every time. The pump is way too small. It will fit an average to smaller person, but not a more endowed individual. The shaft is handheld and you need your other hand for pumping.

    • Soft sleeve

Material / Texture

The sleeve is TPE and is very soft and squishy. The material is a bit thick, and when inserted into the pump it doubles to about 1/4", removing about half an inch from the interior 2" diameter. The opening is about 1 inch and has a lip at the top, which creates the suction. It also causes some very serious pain after your penis has swelled a bit.

The shaft is hard plastic and is 2" diameter by about 8" long. It curves to a dome point at the top which makes the usable space about 7 inches.

The tubing is very well anchored into the top and has an outer shell to protect it from damage. It hooks tightly into the bulb, and has a push button release valve.

The plastic smell is pretty mild and goes away after being aired out for a few hours. The quality is upstanding and the So Pump is made to be durable.
    • Light odor
    • Not porous at all
    • Smooth

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

I am very impressed with the quality and like the design. The sleeve was a great addition, most sleeves are rubbery and grab lint. I wish this was bigger, it is made for smaller to average sized penises and causes a bit of pain where the sleeve neck goes over the base.

The toy is not very discrete, but could be hidden in a round mailer from the post office along with lube, etc.

I wanted some vibration and put a cock ring around the outside and a heavy duty bullet, that would have worked nicely if I would have fit. There were a couple of times it sounded like ducks in the room from the air leaking, definite mood breaker but a bit of humor is okay. The bulb did go flat a few times, but filled back up with a bit of air release.

    • May be too tight for some
    • Tight fitting

Functions / Performance / Controls

DO NOT fall asleep with this pump on your penis. Remove after about 15 minutes. I wanted to put the warnings on here and this seemed like a good area.
    • Easy to use

Care and Maintenance

I washed the sleeve in soapy water and rinsed it very well. I air dried it before sanitizing with a good toy cleanser. The pump I washed with a soft bottle brush in soapy water, rinsed and dried it immediately, and then sanitized the shaft's interior. The tubing I wiped down with toy cleanser.

The packaging is just pull apart shaped plastic. I personally keep this in a mailing tube for cleanliness.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store
Follow-up commentary
My husband is starting to like the pump, but we need a larger sleeve for his comfort. We are looking on Edens for replacement sleeves and are very sure this will be one of the more played with toys after we order one. I love the clear shaft, the visibility is a huge turn on!

    Was the pain from the doughnut or from over pumping? Did this happen during use or when removing it?
  • B8trDude
    js250 - great review! I''ve got one of these too. DON'T pump if it hurts. Take it VERY slow and easy as overpumping could cause damage I've got one of these too and the gasket on this one is fairly tight and makes a very good seal. It that is the problem, then I'd try a different pump.
  • That Man from Mars
    Thanks for the review. I do want to say that pumps are very dangerous when used on a vagina, so please do not recommend it.
  • js250
    The pain was from the donut. I will recall the vaginal comment, I tried it clitorally and very lightly. Thank you.
  • Jimmy Stevenson
    I'm kinda interested.
  • The Curious Couple
    Awesome review, thanks!
  • married with children
    good review, thanks for sharing.
  • Jimbo Jones
    You tried it on your clitoris and you mentioned it could be used on the nipple area. Any comments on the clit or nipple use?
  • js250
    Be gentle. It made me super sensitive and also felt pretty darn good on both areas. I would not say I could cum, but it sure helped me get there!
  • oldman
    To my knowledge, aren't pumps made to give you an errection and not as a masturbation tool (unless you have ED or a problem getting hard at the time). I have seen some advertised to increase size, but everything I read says that will not happen.
