What are nipple clamps?

Fifty Shades Darker At My Mercy Chained Nipple Clamps

Nipples are one of the erogenous zones in our body and are usually sensitive to touch as they have numerous nerve endings. Hence, when they are stimulated, it will cause immense pleasure. Some people are known to orgasm just from nipple stimulation.

Nipple clamps come in pairs and are used on the nipples. It will pinch and apply pressure to the nipples, thus restricting blood flow. Once it is removed, it will allow blood to flow back to the nipples, bringing sensual pleasure to the wearer.

Along with the pleasure, some pain may be experienced, giving rise to a sinful, delicious sensation.

Nipple clamps may or may not come with a connecting chain that you can tug and pull on to increase sensations.

What are the types of nipple clamps?

There is a multitude of designs of nipple clamps. These are the more common ones that you can find in a sex shop:

  • Clothespin / alligator clamps
Crimson Tied Heart Padlock Nipple Clamps

Clothespin clamps, otherwise known as alligator clamps, get its name as it is shaped similarly to the household clothespin or alligator clip. Clothespin clamps have a large and wide “mouth” on one end, and comes with screws to adjust and control the pressure.

Clothespin clamps are usually made of metal and come with rubber coating at the “mouth” to soften the impact of the clamp on the skin. You can vary the pressure on the nipples depending on the placement of the clamps.

In some clothespin clamps, the rubber coating is detachable, so you can remove it if you want to increase the pressure on the nipples. While others may come with “teeth” to increase the friction on the nipples.

  • Tweezer clamps
Eve’s Naughty Nipple Clamps

Tweezer clamps are shaped like a tweezer where they have longer arms that are used to control the pressure of the clamp.

The mechanics are that there is a metal ring encircling the arms of the clamps that you can slide up and down the arms to control the tightness of the clamps.

Tweezer clamps are a top pick for beginners as it is easy to adjust and control the pressure. They also usually come with a padded tip, either in PVC or silicone material, to protect the nipple from direct hard metal contact.

  • Clover clamps
Spartacus Butterfly Style Endurance Clamp With Link Chain

Clover clamps, otherwise known as Japanese clover clamps or butterfly clamps, are shaped like clover or a butterfly and are joined together by a chain. They are usually metallic.

They have a more complicated mechanism, whereby the only adjustment allowed is to increase the tightness and pressure. It is done so by pulling on the chain which will make the clamps tighter. If you want to loosen it, the only possible way is to remove the clamps.

They are a hot favorite amongst experienced users of nipple clamps as they are much tighter and provide a higher intensity.

  • String clamps
Nipple Play® Non-Piercing Nipple Chain Jewelry

String clamps come with an adjustable string loop that you circle and tighten around the nipple. The tighter it is, the greater the pressure.

String clamps provide a different sensation to the nipples as compared to the traditional nipple clamps as they do not pinch the nipples. Instead, on tightening, they will press against the nipples.

They are great for people who are allergic to metal or who are looking for something softer on the skin. However, as they are pretty lightweight, the pressure on the nipples will not be intense as what metal nipple clamps can provide.

String clamps are also great for wearing out and for wearing for longer periods as the pressure and hold on the nipples are not as intense as metal clamps.

  • Magnetic clamps
Fetish Fantasy Gold Magnetic Nipple Clamps

The basic magnetic clamps are made of 2 magnetic balls that you place on both sides of the nipples. They will keep attempting to attach to each other and act as a clamp to the nipples.

The strength of the magnetic balls will determine the pressure on the nipples and the strength is non-adjustable.

The size of the nipples also will affect the strength of the magnetic balls – people with smaller nipples will feel the pinch stronger than people with larger nipples.

How do I choose a nipple clamp?

  1. Pressure

Some nipple clamps allow you to tighten and loosen the grip, allowing you to have full control over the pressure.

If you are a beginner, adjustable nipple clamps are highly recommended to go for, while you explore the level of stimulation that you best enjoy.

  1. Vibrations

Some nipple clamps come with the option to vibrate, controlled either remotely or physically. Vibrations provide additional sensation to the nipples and are best suited for experienced users.

  1. Weight

Some nipple clamps come with or give you the option to add extra weight or swing, providing additional pressure to the nipples with the pull. These are usually for more experienced users who are accustomed to the pressure and sensations to their nipples.

  1. Material

Nipple clamps come in different materials, ranging from stainless steel to silicone and PVC.

Stainless steel nipple clamps are hard and rigid, which is best for experienced users. While silicone and PVC nipple clamps are more suited for beginners as they are softer and smoother, which is more gentle on the skin.

Another consideration is if you are allergic to any form of material. You definitely do not want to get an allergic reaction in private areas that is hard to explain away.

  1. Chain

Some nipple clamps are sold as individual pairs, while others come connected with a chain. With a chain, it allows for pain play as they are tugged and pulled.

  1. Size

Depending on the size of your nipples, you may want to get nipple clamps that cover the surface area of your nipples.

If you are looking for more intense pleasure, you may want to get thin or small nipple clamps to concentrate the pressure on a small area.

I’m new to this. How do I start using nipple clamps?

Before wearing it on your nipples, try to get your body used to the sensation by clipping it on sensitive areas such as the earlobe or fingertip.

Once you get used to the sensation, use the clamps around your nipples, but not yet on your nipples to get a better feel of them on your chest.

Once you are comfortable, make sure you are aroused before placing them on your nipple directly in the position you desire. This will make your nipple firm and hard enough so that the nipple clamps can easily be attached.

If you are using adjustable nipple clamps, slowly adjust to your desired pressure before play.

During play, you can readjust the nipple clamps or tug and pull on them, depending on what feels good at that point in time.

If you are new to nipple clamps, do not keep the nipple clamps for longer than 20 minutes per use as it would affect your blood flow.

You might notice that your nipples may get darker than usual. This is fairly normal as nipple clamps are designed to draw blood to the surface.

When do I release the nipple clamps?

You should remove the nipple clamps just before you are ready to climax. Blood will immediately start flowing to your nipples, resulting in a rush of increased sensation due to the release of endorphins and oxytocin.

Always remember to massage the nipples after use to reintroduce sensations, and try not to clamp the same spot every time.

How do I remove the nipple clamp?

If it comes with an adjustable screw, slowly loosen it such that the clamp is wide enough to be removed safely without any tugging or pulling.

As much as you are into pain play, never attempt to rip them off from your nipples as it may bruise your nipples or even damage the nerves on your nipples.

How should nipple clamps be worn?

Nipple clamps are fairly easy to wear. Squeeze open the handle of the nipple clamps, position it on the two sides of your nipple, before releasing the handle. If you have adjustable nipple clamps, you can adjust the pressure to what feels good for you.

What should I feel when wearing the nipple clamps?

Wearing nipple clamps should not be painful. As it is meant to pinch your nipples, your nipples should feel a little tingly and numb.

If you are into pain play, you could also tighten the nipple clamps so you can feel pleasurable pain on the nipples.

However, if you tightened the nipple clamps too much, you could feel bad pain on the nipples. If so, remove the nipple clamps and lightly massage your nipples to soothe the pain.

How do I clean nipple clamps?

Nipple clamps that are made of silicone or PVC can be cleaned with anti-bacterial soap and water. If you are using stainless steel nipple clamps, you can also sterilize them in boiling water before wiping them clean.

Can I wear nipple clamps for long period?

If you are new to wearing nipple clamps, start off with short periods first before working your way to longer durations.

If you are intending to wear for long durations, you would need to ensure that the clamps are loose so it does not restrict the blood flow too much. In addition, do remove the nipple clamps once in a while and massage your nipples to allow them to breathe.

I enjoy nipple clamps very much. What other options are out there?

If you like nipple clamps, you can also look out for clit clamps as an additional toy on top of your nipple clamps. Otherwise, you can also get nipple to clit clamps if you are feeling adventurous to stimulate all three erogenous zones.
