We are diving into some uncharted territory with this review! The Inya Pump and Vibe by NS Novelties has crossed my nightstand recently. While vibrators are nothing new, pumps however are! I have always been intrigued by them and so this two-in-one toy caught my attention. But with a little reading and a lot of testing, I have quite a few thoughts on this! So let’s dive in.
Inya Pump and Vibe Stats
The Inya Pump and Vibe by NS Novelties is a dual-function silicone vulva pump and vibrator all in one. At one end you have a powerful suction pump, with two interchangeable cups. One is an oval shape and the other is a stout cylinder. You can use them anywhere on the body that you want to bring blood flow directly to through suction. It has 8 settings on the suction side: 3 ‘speeds’ of suction and then 5 patterns. You have a curved vibrating end on the other side, meant for g-spot stimulation or even clitoral stimulation. There is a slight bit of texture in a rippled wave that goes over the head of the toy. For vibration, there are 3-speed functions and 5 pattern functions.
To turn the toy on, you use the power button. This puts it into a sort of waiting mode. You can then hit the circle to enter the vibration mode. To start the suction, click the button with the back and forth arrows, then hit the power button again. From there you use the back and forth button to stop the suction, and the power button to cycle through the different levels/patterns of suction. To turn the toy off, hold the power button down for about 3 seconds. There is no quick release, but if you remove the cups from the suction base, it does release the air.
This Pump and Vibe toy is USB rechargeable via magnet. You will want to use water-based lube with this toy. To clean, use warm water and soap on the toy. For the attachments, the silicone seal does slip on and off for ease of cleaning. And they are safe to put into the dishwasher for sanitizing. Also while this toy has many parts, it does not come with a bag for storage.
- Overall Length: 16.9 x 3 x 3 inches
- Insertable Length: 5.5 inches
- Insertable Width: 1.46 Inches
- Oval Attachment: 3.25 length/2.25 width
- Cylinder Attachment: 2.25 inches around
So what did I think?
Opening up the Inya Pump and Vibe, it is quick to tell that they expect you to know what you are doing from the start. There is no pamphlet to tell you how to use it. Just the directions on the box. So my first bit of testing was reading up on how to use this particular toy. Here are a few of my favorite guides that I found.
Note: These are both for manual pumps but still hold great information for pumping in general.
Onto The Vibe
Now we get on to actually using the toy. The vibrator end is rather straightforward, in that it is a nice firm curved shape for g-spot stimulation. The vibrations are very deep and rumbly, on par with some of my favorite toys. The scalloped ridges are also delightful against the skin, both internally and externally. The only downside is trying to hold it. The other end has the reservoir for the pump, which is left open when there is no attachment inside, and holding it via the attachment is just awkward. The edge of the plastic is not sharp, but will bite into skin when holding it. It would be nice if there was a third cap attachment for when the suction side is not in use.
At times, it got a little confusing to use as well. With the buttons so close together, I often hit the suction one and it stops all vibrations. Which was a little frustrating when it came to being right at the apex of orgasm.
Then There Is The Pump
One of my first worries about this pump during testing was the attachments. One size does not fit all and I wish NS Novelties had taken this into account. This was very clearly made with those with more petite vulvas in mind. I had to sort of pump in chunks because not everything was going to fit into those cups. I found that it worked the best along my outer labia so I started there. The suction itself goes rather quickly once you get the seal correctly settled.
There is not much lead-up to it, compared to a manual pump where you can take your time deciding how far you want to go. It didn’t pinch or hurt but it felt just like someone was sucking on them gently. Which was pleasant, but left me wanting more. So I let it sit for about 10 minutes to see if the sensation changed at all. And what I got for it was having to awkwardly hold the vibrator end so that the suction didn’t break. So I had to stop.
Now, when I did finally take it off, the change became visible. Though not to the point I had seen in my research. Perhaps if I had kept it on longer? But I honestly don’t think I could do that without having to lay with the toy being held there by my legs. Another awkward position I would not feel comfortable holding for longer than a few moments.
After The Pump
Of course, I decided to use the vibrator after applying the pump. I will say my sensitivity was heightened, though it was nothing extreme. To me, it felt the same as if I had used an arousal gel, just without the cooling sensation. I think that if the attachment had been able to fit me that I would see different results. But I will say that I was very aware of my labia for the next few hours after using it.
While the Inya Pump and Vibe was only half a success for me because my body did not fit the specs of the toy, it could certainly work for someone who has a more petite vulva. I also might not suggest it as a toy for those very new to pumps to hop into. The manual ones allow you just so much more control in the way of the suction, and you can make sure you are doing it in the safest way possible. However, if you are looking for a more compact two-in-one toy, this might just be up your alley.
