Clitoris Pumps and Clit Pumping - Is it your bag, baby?

Sex for Women Network

In May 2000, the US Food and Drug administration approved the use of a new medical device for the treatment of Female Sexual Dysfunction, a problem that affects over 50% of women at some time during their lives. No, it wasn't a vibrator, and it wasn't a new form of viagra. It was a clitoris pump.

The EROS-CTD clit pump - but it's really not my bag, baby!This handy-dandy little instrument is officially called the Urometrics EROS-CTD Treatment Device, and it's the equivalent of the Austin Powers-type penis pump (but it's really not my bag, baby!) It's available only on prescription, and costs $400.

The EROS-CTD consists of a small tube, suction cup and batteries. You place the suction cup over your clitoris and inner labia, creating a seal, then you activate the pump and whammo! Your clit is sucked into the tube, and the subsequent vacuum causes the blood vessels inside your clit to enlarge. The pump basically creates an artificial female erection. The idea behind the whole thing is that an enlarged clit is an aroused and sensitive clit, and female orgasm becomes as easy as pressing down the toaster button.

This latest technological development did not go down well with a number of feminists. They argued that this device was a typical male solution to a typically complicated female problem. 

“If it works on men, it must work on women. Right? Well, sure, if you're a government bureaucrat. With all the technological knowledge they could have harnessed in Silicon Valley, all the historical knowledge of thousands of doctors at their disposal, all the sexperts available to them in San Francisco alone, they come up with this?” wrote self-described “surly journalist” Annalee Newitz. “Even an armchair techno-historian could have told them that the vibrator was one of the very first electrical devices – used prolifically in the late 19th century – for a damn good reason.”

Feminist Carol Queen was also critical. “You might ask, ‘If there’s a partner in this equation, why not negotiate a nice session of cunnilingus? Wouldn’t it have the same effect?’ That’s a very good question indeed, but a doctor can’t write a prescription for cunnilingus, can s/he? More’s the pity.”

In an unusual twist, lesbian activist Karlyn Lotney, also known as Fairy Butch, as happily co-opted the clit pump for her own purposes, claiming it can create easily-suckable long clits for enhanced enjoyment. She says that some transgender people, or those who do not identify with female genitalia, are able to fulfill fellatio fantasies through use of the pump. Lotney has even included a chapter on effective and safe clit pumping in her book The Ultimate Guide to Strap-On Sex.

Tristan Taormino, anal sex expert and feminist extraordinaire, wrote about her experiments with a clit pump. She found it to be a fabulous experience. "Squeeze number three, and I looked down to see my clit red, swollen, and filling half the cylinder. It looked huge... One touch of a vibrator, and I was in outer space... I am smitten with my new toy not because it makes my clit into a cock, but because it shows me yet another incredible thing my body can do."

Some feminists have applauded this switch - from government-approved medical device to sex toy - as it comes closer to treating the real causes of female sexual dysfunction - namely, lack of sexual expertise and the wholesale cultural ignorance of female sexuality.

Original clinical trials on only a small number of women found that 100% experience some increase in sexual satisfaction. Larger trials are yet to be conducted.
