Upon opening the package, this thing is daunting. It's considerably more than just a regular penis pump. It takes 4 C batteries and also some lube. Make sure you lube up generously for this toy for best results. There are also a few adjustments I will recommend for better use of this toy. First of all get yourself a good long adult movie set up before hand. Lube up and insert yourself, it's a nice tight fit for me. Use the pump to suck all of yourself into the chamber and start using the settings, you have one for vibration and one for up/down. The best position to use this is lying on your back and put a pillow across your thighs to rest the toy on....so much better than fumbling around with this because it is a huge toy.
Be careful with the squeeze ball, it can tend to fall out but with a little ingenuity you can manage just fine. I have a suggestion for the squeeze ball, get some tubing in the right size to go over the nozzle from the toy and the ball, it will make it much easier and less cumbersome. I had an old pump that had a hose already that fit nicely. So using the pillow to prop it up and tubing for the pump itself will make this thing great. I'm still shaking while writing this review from cumming so hard.
Another tip....take the batteries out when not in use, the dials are easily moved and you don't want your C batteries to run down, it can be expensive. Also, I found that taking the pump off occasionally was good too so I can get a few longer strokes in and with the nubbies on the inside of the sleeve it felt great. If you do this I find you still have some suction especially if you just cover the pump hole on the side of the toy with your hand while stroking. It was a very fun time sitting back and letting this toy do its job while watching a good flick. Definitely something for when you have plenty of free time and just want to relax.
After playing I found the pump worked great on pumping up my dick, I had a substantial gain and the nubbies made nice textured indents on my dick so if playing with a significant other it might be fun for sex afterwards for her. My wife has a pussy pump of her own from TooTimid so we plan on playing with these toys together.
So at first I thought cleaning was going to be hard...I would honestly say it's moderate and worth it. I used my sink that has a faucet pulls out of the base attached to a hose which made it easier, if not I would use the bathtub faucet because the toy is long and might not fit into your sink. A little water got on the inside of the tube between tube and sleeve and all I did was take the mouth piece at the end of toy and took it off just enough to let the water drain out. I had a great experience with this and will definitely be playing with it often.
