is pressure directly proportional to the boiling point?

when pressure increases over liquid surface, take example of pressure cooker, that means more gas or vapour molecules over the liquid surface.
so more energy would be required by the liquid molecules to overcome the pressure and escape out. so boiling point increases to provide the molecules with that energy..
