Homemade Nipple Sucker | The How To Guide

homemade nipple sucker

In this article, you’ll find four different ways how to make a nipple suction device at home. We’ll also discuss the safety of these sex devices and whether they are a good fit for beginners. 

How do Nipple Suckers Work?

Well… it’s pretty straightforward if really think about it for a moment. Nipple suckers work by creating a vacuum or suction on the nipple, which increases blood flow, leading the nipple to become erect. These devices come in various designs, including manual and electric types, and can be made from materials such as silicone, plastic, or metal.

When you place a nipple sucker over the nipple, it creates a vacuum by removing air from inside the chamber, which causes the nipple to be drawn upwards and into the chamber. So you’d know, a homemade penis pump works exactly the same way.

As the nipple is drawn in, the pressure inside the chamber decreases (less air in the chamber), which causes blood to be drawn into the nipple. This increased blood flow can lead to the nipple becoming more sensitive and engorged. And, that can feel pleasurable to some people. I enjoy the feeling 110%!

Btw, nipple suckers can also be used in combination with other sexual activities like partnered sex or masturbation. Nipple suckers can also be used as a form of BDSM or kink play, as they can be used to create sensations of pain, pleasure, or a combination of both.

Is Homemade Nipple Sucker Safe To Use?

It’s a tricky question. Why? Homemade nipple suckers are safe to use as long as you are a responsible adult and use your brain when making a DIY version of it at home. Based on my experience, the safety of a nipple sucker depends on the materials used and how it is used.

From a scientific perspective, using a homemade nipple sucker made from safe (and sterilized) materials such as a clean tube, latex glove, and a glass bottle can be safe to use. When it comes to using a glass jar or a bottle, make sure that the glass is not cracked and is clean and free from any harmful substances.

Other than that, avoid over-suction, as this can cause pain or injury to the nipple or to the surrounding area. My recommendation is to start with a lower level of suction and gradually increase it as desired. This way you can prevent injury or discomfort.

How To Make a DIY Nipple Sucker?

I’ve made a homemade nipple sucker from a plastic syringe. plastic bottle, and a small glass. Based on my experience you want to use additional stimulation when engaging in nipple play, such as a dildo or a vibrator, for a more enhanced sexual experience. Here’s how to go about each idea:

1) Plastic Syringe and Some Tubing

  • Get a plastic syringe and a piece of tubing that is long enough to reach your nipple (3-4cm).
  • Cut the tubing to the appropriate length.
  • Smooth or soften the edges and attach one end to the syringe.
  • Sterilize the syringe and tubing by boiling them in water for at least 10-15 minutes.
  • Place the tubing over your nipple and use the syringe to create suction.
  • Hold the suction for a few seconds and then release it by depressing the plunger on the syringe.

2) Small Plastic Bottle and Latex Glove

  • Cut off the index finger of the latex glove and stretch it over the opening of the bottle.
  • Use a sterilizer (you can use alcohol to disinfect it) to properly clean the glove before use.
  • Make a small hole in the tip of the glove finger and place it over your nipple.
  • Squeeze and release the bottle to create suction.

3) Small Glass Jar and a Balloon

  • Sterilize the jar and the balloon.
  • Cut off the end of the balloon and stretch it over the opening of the jar.
  • Make a small hole in the center of the balloon and place it over your nipple.
  • Press the jar against your breast gently to create suction.

4) Cold Towel and a Glass Bottle

  • Place a towel in the fridge for at least 30-40 minutes to make it cold.
  • Heat up a glass bottle by placing it in a bowl of hot water (not boiling water!!).
  • Test the temperature of the glass bottle on your pinky finger to ensure it is not too hot or cold.
  • Place the opening of the glass bottle over your nipple and cover it with a cold towel to experience the suction effect.

Note that testing the homemade nipple pump on your pinky finger before applying it to your nipples is highly recommended. Using a glass bottle, not a plastic bottle, is a must to maintain the temperature that allows the suction effect to happen.

DIY Nipple Sucker Alternatives

If you didn’t get inspired by the ideas above, maybe these will pique your curiosity:

One option is to use a small vacuum-sealed bag, such as a Ziploc bag, and create a small hole in the center of the bag that is just large enough to fit over the nipple. You can then create suction by pressing out any air in the bag and holding it against the nipple. For example, place the Ziploc bag on your nipple (make sure it is tightly sealed) and then submerge your breasts in the bath. This work because the water pressure pushes all of the excess air out of the Ziploc bag.

Another option is to use a small rubber or silicone bulb, think of those used for ear syringes, and attach a small, soft rubber or silicone cup to the end. You can then create suction by squeezing and releasing the bulb. This technique is easy to replicate as long as you have the rubber bulb at home.

How To Clean a DIY Nipple Sucker Device?

As a general rule, it’s important to clean the nipple device thoroughly both before and after each use to prevent the growth and spread of bacteria. Other than that it’s all about the material. The method for cleaning your DIY nipple sucker device will depend on the materials you used to create it. 

For example, if you’ve used a glass bottle or any other smooth, non-porous material, you can clean it with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth or brush. Rinse the device well with water and let it air dry. Based on my experience, you can also use alcohol wipes for disinfection.

For cloth or fabric-based devices, you can wash them in the washing machine on a gentle cycle with mild detergent and then air dry them.

Note: avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the device. If you’re sharing the device with a partner, it’s recommended to use a new condom or clean the device thoroughly before each use to prevent the spread of STIs.

Should I Use Lube With Nipple Suckers?

Yes, you should definitely use lube with your homegrown nipple toy! Nipples are very sensitive and can easily become irritated if too much suction is applied. Using a small amount of water-based lube (oil-based lube may degrade your suction toy) on the nipple and the opening of the nipple sucker can significantly reduce the risk of irritation and make the sexual experience much significantly more intense. And, perhaps even more orgasmic.

From a scientific standpoint, lube can help create a tighter seal between the nipple and the nipple sucker, which can increase the amount of suction possible. And, well.. again, this can make the experience a lot more pleasurable. 

Is It Possible To Make a Vibrating DIY Nipple Sucker?

Yes, it is possible to make a vibrating DIY nipple sucker, but it would require a bit more effort and materials than a traditional homemade nipple sucker. I’ve tried combining a traditional nipple sucker with a bullet vibrator, by placing the vibrator against the base and/or inside the chamber of the nipple sucker. It works, but I wouldn’t say that it’s a game-changer.

It’s important to note that creating a homemade vibrating nipple sucker can be potentially risky, as it involves using electronic components near your body. Take proper safety precautions, such as using materials that are body-safe and non-toxic, and ensure that the electronic components are properly insulated and protected from moisture. And finally, test the device before using it on sensitive areas of the body. 

Can You Orgasm With a DIY Nipple Suction Device?

I have orgasmed through the use of nipple suckers, including DIY nipple suckers. However, I had extra help from my friend Mr. Bullet’s vibrator. The nipples are highly sensitive erogenous zones that are rich in nerve endings, and the suction and stimulation provided by the nipple suckers can feel highly pleasurable. Obviously, not everyone will experience orgasm through the use of nipple suckers.

How Do Use Nipple Suckers During Sex?

Nipple suckers can be used in conjunction with other forms of stimulation, such as oral sex, manual stimulation, or penetration, to enhance overall pleasure. Here are some well-known tips for using nipple suckers during sex: 

  1. Get your suction device, and apply water-based lube to the nipples and the inside of the nipple suckers to create a stronger seal and increase sensation. 
  2. Begin by using the nipple suckers for short periods of time and gradually increasing the duration and intensity of suction. Pay attention to your partner’s responses and adjust as needed.

Remember to always communicate with your partner about what feels good and what doesn’t. Be open to trying new things, but also be respectful of each other’s boundaries and limits. Nipple suckers can be a fun and exciting addition to your sexual repertoire, but it’s important to use them responsibly.

Can Both Men and Women Use Homemade Nipple Suction Devices?

Yes, without a doubt, both men and women can use homemade nipple suckers. As mentioned, nipples have a high concentration of nerve endings, and people of all genders find nipple stimulation to be pleasurable. Based on my experience, nipple suckers can be used for both solo play and with a partner and can be incorporated into a wide range of sexual activities.

You’d be surprised to learn that some nipple suckers are designed specifically for men or women, but many are suitable for use by anyone. As with any sex toy, it’s important to choose nipple suckers that are safe, clean, and designed for your particular needs and preferences.

Are Nipple Suckers Used in BDSM Play?

Yes, nipple suckers can be used in BDSM play. Nipple play is a relatively common component of BDSM. And, nipple suckers can be used to increase sensitivity and engorgement of the nipples, intensifying the sensations of pain and pleasure during BDSM activities. As you’d know, nipple suckers can also be used as a form of nipple torture or nipple training, in which the person’s nipples are subjected to prolonged suction or pressure.

This can lead to a variety of sensations, such as temporary enlargement or engorgement, increased sensitivity or pain, or even permanent changes to the nipple. As with any BDSM activity, it’s important to engage in nipple play and use nipple suckers in a consensual and safe manner, and to communicate clearly with your partner about your boundaries and desires.

Can Beginners Use Nipple Suckers?

Yes, beginners can use nipple suckers. Nipple suckers can be a fun way to explore nipple play and increase sensitivity and arousal in the nipples. Why this device is a good fit for beginners? It’s because they are easy to use, can be relatively inexpensive, and can be found in a variety of sizes and shapes to suit different preferences and levels of experience.

Take note: start slowly and with lower levels of suction pressure, and pay attention to your body’s response to the sensations. Communicate clearly with your partner and establish boundaries/limits before engaging in any nipple play or use of nipple suckers. With proper communication, nipple suckers can be a highly enjoyable addition to your sexual play, regardless of your level of sex experience.
