What Did Our Tester Think? Jess tested these nipple clamps for us and had a really good experience. Initially, they were a bit difficult to get on and she noted that she probably should have practiced a bit on herself before bringing them into the bedroom! Overall, she found them to be sturdy, affordable, and very much worth the learning curve. “It was the perfect pinch and pleasure sensation! I also really loved the sensitivity that I had for some time after removing them. These have been the perfect first set of nipple clamps for me — I’m happy to have been able to dip my foot into this realm of nipple play.” Sex Expert Opinion I picked these cute clamps from Fifty Shades of Grey out as the Test Winner in this review because of how the quality, accessibility, and design all comes together. They are both pretty and pleasurable! I like that the weighted charms add some extra sensation so they are good for different levels of experience. First of all, tweezer nipple clamps are a great all-round nipple clamp, and the adjustability also makes them great for beginners. The metal slider on these is slightly flattened which makes them easier to move and adjust. While they aren’t the cheapest pair of nipple clamps in the world, this is where I would recommend spending a few more bucks for better quality and more durability. These are retailed at $19.99, and I think it’s a reasonable price for the quality, storage bag, and design you’re getting here. Especially when you can use these time and time again, adjusting the power of the pinch to suit the mood in the room.

What Did Our Tester Think? When Rachel tested these nipple clamps, she really appreciated the overall look and high quality materials. Since she’s fairly experienced with nipple clamps, she did mention that they could have been more weighted or provided some intense sensations. Although, for complete beginners, this was a great option. “I really enjoy these Bondage Boutique nipple clamps. The color is just so pretty, and I really appreciate the silicone tips over the usual vinyl — it’s so soft on the skin! They’re super beginner-friendly, and though sometimes I wished that they had a bit more weight to them, they’re a perfect go-to clamp for light nipple stimulation.” Sex Expert Opinion Just like Rachel, I think these are a great pair of tweezer clamps for beginners! They are cheap enough to try out and they are nice and lightweight so they don’t have any extra tug to them! Tweezer-style nipple clamps can generally be a bit fiddly to get on. Although, once you get the hang of it, the mechanism is quite simple to use. A good tip is use a small dab of lube to help the mechanism along. I love that the tips are covered in smooth silicone as opposed to vinyl. The heart charms definitely also gives them a more cutesy feel than many other clamps. While perfect for beginners, they probably won’t satisfy more extreme tastes. If you’re looking for an extreme tug, I would recommend clover clamps or weighted nipple clamps. They are also quite small, so those with larger than average nipples might struggle with these clamps.

What Did Our Tester Think? “My initial reaction to the Bondage Boutique Adjustable Nipple clamps was that they looked a little intimidating. The clamps look like rock climbing equipment more than decoration.” Katie tested these advanced nipple clamps for us and was a bit overwhelmed by the intensity they deliver! Since they weren’t adjustable and very weighted, they just weren’t a good fit for Katie’s needs when it comes to nipple play. Instead, she recommended this to those looking for extreme sensations and a bit of pain play. Sex Expert Opinion I cannot stress this enough, these clamps are mean! Clover clamps are some of the most intense nipple clamps you can buy, so only buy these if you enjoy pain play. Now, if you are looking for something suitable for advanced nipple play, I think these are a fantastic option. The combination of the powerful clamps and the weighty chain provides a powerful pinch as soon as you apply these clamps and the sensation builds instantly. Even though Katie preferred a more decorative design, I would say that the tough, industrial aesthetic is very fitting for some hardcore BDSM sessions. Both the clamps and the chain are nice and chunky. Not only does the chain add some nice weight to the experience, it acts as a great tool for extra intense sensation of tugging and pulling. Last but not least, these are pretty affordable for such a serious pair of clamps!

What Did Our Tester Think? Kasia really liked the Fifty Shades Darker At My Mercy Chained Nipple Clamps since they were both cute and entertaining. The silicone tips provided a comfortable experience, while the chain added an extra layer of interaction and visual appeal that was much appreciated. She did note that it wasn’t an ideal choice for those into more intense tugging with the chain, since they could fall off easily. “But if you are strong on nipple play, and you are interested in the chain because you want to use it for pulling, they might not be the best idea. But if you want something more gentle with a nice weight and a super cute design they are a winner!” Sex Expert Opinion Okay, first of all, these chained nipple clamps look super sexy. This is giving elegant kink without being too intense. Second of all, I think tweezer-style clamps like this with a light chain is a perfect nipple play product for the intermediate user. This is a version of our Test Winner that offers the added fun of tugging lightly on a chain for a playful pinch. They also feature these weighted metal charms to add some intensity to the experience as well. I think they might not be the best pick for those who crave very intense nipple play or need clamps that stay on securely during vigorous activity. If you really want some nipple claims to tug on, these may fall off before things get too intense! In summary, if you’re on the hunt for slightly weighted nipple clamps that combine aesthetics with functionality, these are a solid choice. The soft silicone tips are comfortable on the skin, the metal slider makes it easy to adjust, and the chain adds some extra visuals and versatility. For anyone looking to add a touch of elegance and excitement to their nipple play, the Fifty Shades Darker At My Mercy Chained Nipple Clamps are definitely worth considering.

What Did Our Tester Think? When Isabelle first tested out this nipple clamp set, she said there definitely was a learning curve to using them. Although with a bit of practice, they weren’t that complicated to use. She did deduct a few points for the chain not seeming very durable, but, otherwise, her experience using the whole set was pretty darn positive! “Once I did manage to wrestle myself into all the clamps, it was 1000% worth it! The nipple and clit clamps felt great on, an intense but pleasant pinch. However, this clamp set really blew my mind when using it with a partner! The sensations when they tugged the chain or used their hands and mouth on me while wearing the clamps felt like someone had turned the volume all the way up, and each touch turned me to jelly!” Sex Expert Opinion Since these nipple clamps are also from the Fifty Shades of Grey brand, it obviously shares a lot of design features and materials as some of the other product’s I’ve recommend in this review so far. They also offer soft silicone tips, easily adjustable tweezer designs, weighted metal charms, and that sleek, beaded metal chain. Of course, the main feature that makes this set stand out is the clitoral clamp. This is a great addition to your usual nipple clamp play because of the increased sensitivity it also gives to the clitoris. The design also makes it easy to wear while receiving some other kind of oral or manual stimulation. Although keep in mind that it can fall off easily when tugging on the strings or moving around. It’s not a super wearable set but rather something you can decorate yourself with and enjoy while lying or sitting down. In conclusion, I think this set is a fantastic choice for those looking to explore the erotic world of genital clamping and want to look fabulous while they do so! While the chain could be more robust for some teasing and tugging, you still get to enjoy the gorgeous look of the chains! Of course, the brand adds a few extra bucks to the price tag, but I actually think it’s worth the high quality and body-safe materials, and it’s something that can significantly enhance your sensory play.

Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners

Nipple clamps, tit clips, nip clips, sex clamps. Call them what you want! While the open/close mechanisms and level of intensity differ between models, the main feature of nipple clamps is that they open and clamp around the nipple to provide pressure and temporarily reduce blood flow, leading to a rush of blood flow (and thereby increased sensitivity) when you remove them. If you are a complete beginner to using a nipple clamp here’s a little more information about them to help you get started.

Who uses nipple clamps?

Who uses nipple clamps? - Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners
Nipple clamps aren’t only for those who indulge in BDSM and enjoy pain. They can be used by anyone with nipples and an interest in nipple stimulation. It doesn’t always have to be painful. That being said, everyone’s nipples are unique and nipple sensitivity varies greatly from person to person and at different times, for example during menstruation. Some lucky people can even orgasm from nipple stimulation alone.

How do they work?

How do they work? - Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners
Nipple clamps stimulate the area by providing a feeling of pressure or pinching during use. They also restrict the blood flow to the nipple. When the clamp is removed, the blood rushes back causing increased sensation in the moment and for some time after, making your nipples extra sensitive to any other stimulation.

Why does it feel good?

Why does it feel good?  - Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners
The nipples and surrounding areolas are jam-packed with nerve endings, making this a hot spot for stimulation of all types, and stimulation even releases ‘the love hormone’ oxytocin. Nipple clamps are just one of many ways to put all those nerve endings to good use. And while not all nipple clamping is for the purpose of pain, that can definitely be one of the main attractions. Pain and pleasure activate similar pathways in the brain and the feel-good context of love, sex and intimacy can make this an oh so delicious pairing, something along the lines of salty and sweet.

When can you use them?

When can you use them? - Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners
Nipple clamps can be used during foreplay, penetrative sex, and alone or with a partner. You can even wear inconspicuous ones under your clothes as a naughty secret while you go about your everyday activities to get yourself in the mood.

Thin or small tips?

Thin or small tips? - Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners
If you choose a nipple clamp with a thin or small tip it will focus the pressure in one spot, making the sensations more intense on that one spot. The same amount of pressure will feel less intense if you choose a bigger or wider tip for your nipple clamp.

You nipple size

You nipple size - Nipple Clamps: A Guide for Beginners
There is no real formula to choosing the correct nipple clamp depending on your nipple size. But it can be a good idea to take it into consideration. For example, if you have very small nipples, you will need clamps that can be tightened to get enough grip around your nipples.

How to Increase Nipple Sensitivity

If you aren’t one of the lucky people who can achieve a nipplegasm, don’t despair. There are some other ways to increase the sensitivity of your nips. And in the end, increase the overall pleasure of your sex life.

Get experimental

Get experimental  -  How to Increase Nipple Sensitivity
Stimulation is a broad term and your nipples may have a preference for a particular type of touch. You can experiment with ice, pinching, tickling, biting, licking, vibrations, and more to find out what gets your love buds going.

Building intensity with clamps

Building intensity with clamps  -  How to Increase Nipple Sensitivity
If you have tried gentle nipple play before but it didn’t quite tickle your pickle, the more intense pressure of nipple clamps might be just what your nips desire. Each time you apply and remove the nipple clamps, the blood flowing back into the nipple increases the sensitivity. Start with clamps made for beginners and build on this by increasing the tightness of your clamps. Over time, you may notice your nipple sensitivity increase as well as the strength of the clamp you enjoy.

Nipple suckers

Nipple suckers -  How to Increase Nipple Sensitivity
Nipple suckers are also a great way to increase sensitivity. Unlike nipple clamps, they don’t restrict the blood flow first but go straight to increasing the blood flow to your nipples and upping their sensitivity. These teeny tiny vacuums can turn nipple play from a disappointing oh to an exciting oooh!

Lotions and potions

Lotions and potions  -  How to Increase Nipple Sensitivity
As well as toys, there is a whole world of gels and creams to give your nips a helping hand with some tingling sensation. Any lube that is advertised as stimulating, cooling, tingling, warming can add some extra sensitivity to your nipples. While ingredients vary, they commonly include things like mint or menthol to get that tasty tingle.

Different Types of Nipple Clamps

It can be tricky to get to grips with all of the different types of nipple clamps, what they do and how they are used. And even what different sensations they all provide you with.  So, here’s a break down of some of the most popular types to help you pick a winner for your erogenous zones.


Tweezer - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
Tweezer clamps are great for beginners as they can easily be adjusted, and have a soft rubber, vinyl, or silicone coating over the tips for comfort.

Alligator clamp (crocodile clamp)

Alligator clamp (crocodile clamp) - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
Mainly used by those with more experience, the crocodile nipple clamps usually have a soft coating over the bite and clamp similarly to a clothespin. Some can be adjusted (but not as easily as a tweezer clamp) but generally have a stronger pinch. An alligator clamp is usually considered a BDSM nipple clamp, that provide harder pinches.


Clover/Butterfly - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
For those who love intense and painful pinches, and that industrial look for hardcore BDSM sessions. These are not adjustable and clamp hard down on the nipple without mercy! The clamps are attached to a dangling chain that is great for pulling and tugging since the clamps are so tight and secure.


Magnetic - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
Magnetic nipple clamps are a style of clamp for those that can handle, and enjoy pain; there are usually two separate metal pieces, which sit on either side of the nipple. The magnetic force between them then squeezes the nipple. These are also non-adjustable and reserved for more intense play.


Clothespin - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
Think, hanging out your washing but without the clothes- literally! The clothespin clamp is designed to look exactly like a clothespin and simply encloses the nipple between the tips. Be careful, these can’t be adjusted either!


Lasso - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
Nipple lasso clamps (or string clamps) are just what they sound like – little lassos that are tightened around your nipples. Your nipple sits at one end of the lasso and the bead in the middle of it can be moved up or down depending on the pressure you desire. Fully adjustable and super easy to use.


Vibrating - Different Types of Nipple Clamps
Vibrating nipple clamps helps you enjoy that lovely pinch while also experiencing some delightful vibes around the nipple!

The Different Types of Adjustable Nipple Clamps

In terms of adjustable nipple clamps there are a lot of different choices out there. Different types of clamps can also feature different adjustment mechanisms. Here, I’m going to show you some of the different types of adjustable nipple clamps you can find so you can figure out which one would suit you and your needs best.

Alligator Screws

Alligator Screws - The Different Types of Adjustable Nipple Clamps
Probably the most common type of nipple clamp available, alligator (or crocodile) clamps adjust with a single screw that loosens or tightens the clamp’s grip. When you adjust the screw, you are adjusting how tight the clamp will be once you’re wearing it. You will still be able to open the clamp to put it on by squeezing the handles at the bottom.

4-Point Screws

4-Point Screws - The Different Types of Adjustable Nipple Clamps
Another type of adjustable nipple clamp that uses screws is called the 4-point clamp, sometimes also known as nipple grips. These have four separate screws that you can adjust, and your nipple sits in the middle of them. This allows for a more personalized fit, but can be a bit more fiddly to put on than an alligator-style clamp.

Tweezer Sliders

Tweezer Sliders - The Different Types of Adjustable Nipple Clamps
I often recommend tweezer-style clamps for beginners because they’re incredible easy to use and adjust. Tweezer clamps have a small metal slider or loop that can be moved up or down to adjust how close the tweezer arms are to each other.

Lasso or String

Lasso or String - The Different Types of Adjustable Nipple Clamps
Sometimes you are just looking for something lightweight, soft, and cute, if that’s the case then there are some adjustable nipple clamps made out of string or elastic. Often styled as ‘nipple jewellery’, these adjustable nipple clamps have loops of string or elastic that go around the nipple. You then tighten or loosen them by moving the bead up or down to make the loop bigger or smaller.

Twist- or Pull-to-Adjust

Twist- or Pull-to-Adjust - The Different Types of Adjustable Nipple Clamps
And, finally, we have some slightly less common varieties of adjustable nipple clamps. Some clamps have mechanisms that allow you to adjust them by twisting the clamp itself or by pulling on the chain attached to it. You can see a pair of the former kind in the image, and an example of the latter kind is clover (or butterfly) clamps.

Nipple Clamp Techniques

When it comes to nipple clamps, and any kind of sex toy really, it’s definitely different strokes for different folks. The more you play, the more you’ll know what works best for you, but here are some quick tips for getting started with your nipple clamps! For more detailed instructions, check out this post on how to use nipple clamps.

The big release

The big release - Nipple Clamp Techniques
Apply the clamp during foreplay, intercourse or masturbation and enjoy the pinch and pressure as you play. When you are on the edge of orgasming, release and remove the clamp, allowing the blood to rush back into the nipple. This technique can lead to a more powerful orgasm that echoes through the body.

The builder

The builder - Nipple Clamp Techniques
The aim of this game is to slowly increase the pushing the power of your nipple clamps. This is great if you have adjustable clamps and want to test the limits of the pleasure you can get from nipple clamping. Just remember to listen to your body and only continue if its the hurts so good kind of pain.

On again off again

On again off again - Nipple Clamp Techniques
By placing and removing your nipple clamps focus on and off, you can experience pleasure and pain over and over again. This also makes your nips super sensitive to any licks, sucks and flicks that are lavished on them as blood flow increases. Using tweezer clamps for this is recommended as they are quicker to apply and take off again.

Once in position, you can press the two pins together to give your nips a satisfying squeeze. This option is better for smaller nipples.

How to Use Nipple Clamps Safely

While nipple clamps or nipple clips are often associated with pain and BDSM, nipple clamping doesn’t have to be painful, that is unless you want it to be. Nipples are generally robust, but regardless of how much pinch you want on your nips, there are some safety guidelines you should follow to keep your nips in tip-top condition! After all, we wouldn’t want a case of niplash!

Understand your limits

Understand your limits

Learn to distinguish between pleasurable pain and just painful pain. Start with gentle stimulation and increase the intensity slowly. You can also use them alone before using them with a partner, so you can easily communicate your limits. If you are using it on a partner keep an eye out for any signs that you might have pushed your partner and the partner’s nipples too far. It is a wonderful erogenous zone, and should be respected like any other.

Keep an eye on the time

Keep an eye on the time

While there is no official time limit on wearing nipple clamps, it’s best to start with shorter periods, and recommendations for how long you can safely wear nipple clamps range from 15-30 minutes. The stronger the clamps, the more blood flow they restrict, and therefore, the shorter the time they should be worn.

Keep skin integrity

Keep skin integrity

Always remove the clamps if the nipple starts to turn blue or white or there are signs of damage to the skin. There may be some light bruising after using nipple clamps if you are prone to bruising.

Establish clear, trusting communication

Establish clear, trusting communication

If using nipple clamps with/on a partner, always establish clear and trusting communication. A safeword can be used to communicate that you no longer feel comfortable with a situation. Make sure to choose something distinctive and memorable. Fruits and everyday objects make popular choices as they are unlikely to get mixed up in the kink.

Always release the clamp to remove

Always release the clamp to remove

When you are ready to remove the clamp, always release the clamp mechanism before removing it from the nipple. Avoid tugging the clamp straight off, no matter how caught up in the moment you are as this could end with some rather sore nips.

How to Clean Nipple Clamps

Although they might not get as messy as other toys, it is still important to keep your nipple clamps clean. The cleaning method depends on the material, so always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines, and make sure to take extra care with any nipple clamps that have a vibrator or any other electrical parts. Unless they are explicitly stated as being waterproof, do not submerge these in water – it could be a real buzz kill. The majority of nipple clamps are made of metal, usually stainless steel and silicone or PVC on the tips. You can wash these with warm water and mild soap. Always make sure your nipple clamps are dry before using or storing. If your nipple clamps have electrical elements, such as a vibrator, use a damp cloth and mild soap to wipe them down, making sure that the soap is removed and they are completely dry before using or storing.


Nipple clamps, of varying design, are usually made of metal that clamps around the nipple. Sometimes the clamp is covered by soft plastic or silicone for added comfort. They have different clamp mechanisms. Some common types are tweezer, crocodile, clover and magnetic. You can also buy nipple clamps that vibrate, with feathers, with chains as part bondage or restraint sets.

The purpose of nipple clamps is to increase the sensitivity and provide stimulation to the nipples. The intensity is on a continuum from mild, pressure-like sensation right up to a strong, painful but pleasurable pinch. They increase sensitivity by limiting and subsequently increasing the supply of blood to the nipples. This heightens the nipples sensitivity and other forms of touch may feel more pleasurable. This can also lead to a more intense or full-body feeling orgasm or even a nipple orgasm. Additional features such as feathers, vibrators or small bumps apply stimulation to the nipple. They are also popular as part of BDSM and power nipple play and are often worn by submissives with the dominants in charge.

To be honest, I don't think you need to use lubricant with your adjustable nipple clamps, the point of the clamps is to stay in place and the lube can't help for that. But if you are using lube for another kind of play and you are worried about messing your clamps, the recommendation is to use water-based lube as is the best, friendly with almost every kind of material, and easy to clean.

When used properly and with the correct care and attention, nipple clamps are safe to use. As you are limiting the blood supply to the nipple, even only temporarily, you need to be careful not to leave the clamp in place for too long. It's best to start with low intensity and shorter amounts of time (5-10 mins). You can increase both if you want to as you get more comfortable using nipple clamps. Recommendations for how long you can safely wear them vary from 15-30 minutes, but remember that the more powerful the clamp, the shorter time it is safe to use. If you plan to wear yours for longer periods, it is important to take breaks so that the normal circulation can return before putting the clamps back on. If you experience any bruising, cuts, broken skin or your nipples start to turn blue or white, remove the clamps immediately.

Yes, adjustable nipple clamps are safe as long as you use them properly, if you want to explore and experiment with them, just be careful and if you are with your partner, you need great communication to make everything happen smoothly and fine!

Anyone of any gender or sexuality and with any genital make up can use nipple clamps. The only requirement is that you have nipples and the desire to explore nipple stimulation. It goes for both small and big, wide and thin nipples - they can all enjoy hands free nipple play. Even tweezer nipple clamps or japanese clover clamps, who of course is more aimed at the experienced users aren't reserved for the BDSM community - you can join in as well!

According to professionals, looser clamps can be used for 30 minutes while tight clamps can be used for 10 to 15 minutes in order to avoid pain and damage. In the end, you will make your own decision and we strongly suggest you explore carefully and wisely if you want to exceed this time.

Generally speaking, BDSM nipple clamps are fairly safe to use. However, if you go completely overboard it is possible that you will bruise your nipples. Fortunately, this will heal fairly quickly!

This differs from person to person and piercing to piercing. It depends on the size and type of piercing you have. Smaller nipple piercings are easier to pair with nipple clamps whereas big ones limit your options for what would be comfortable. You should also be more careful when using nipple clamps with nipple piercings. You don't want the clamp to pull on the piercing. You can adjust regular nipple clamps to fit around your piercing or buy ones specifically for pierced nipples.

Nipple clamps don't have to be painful, but for many this is their main attraction. Some controlled, consensual pain during foreplay and intercourse can be arousing. It's important to listen to your body and stick to what feels good.

There is not great or worse, it depends on what do you like. It is hard to know until you try different materials. In my personal opinion, I prefer metallic ones because are easier to clean and last longer. But everything relies on what you like. There are some materials that offer you certain features that others don't. So if you are looking especially for something, that might define what material is best for you.

For beginners, it is a good idea to use adjustable tweezer style clamps. They often have rubber ends for comfort and allow you to adjust the pressure. You can also use nipple suckers which are a lot easier to use and are made from silicone.

Fortunately, BDSM nipple clamps are fairly cheap. You can expect to spend around $25 or so. You can pay more for a higher quality clamp, but that's down to personal preference.

Yes and no. It's all about inflicting a pleasurable level of pain on your body. But it's important to know your limits and know where to draw the line. If the pain gets too much then stop! It's about having fun, not causing any harm and injury!

All nipple clamps are painful to an extent. Fortunately, most adjustable nipple clamps allow you to adjust from a gentle nip to a painful pinch with ease!

What is a Nipple Clamp?

Nipple clamps, nipple clips or tit clips all refer to sex toys that apply pressure to the nipples, with the aim of restricting blood flow and increasing the sensitivity of the nipples. This makes any other licks, flicks or touches feel so much more intense. People can use clamps with the expectation of many different outcomes, which range from inflicting (consensual) pain on themselves or another to making the nipples more sensitive to increase pleasure. Adjustable nipple clamps are small devices that can be used to provide pressure over the nipple (or some other body parts) and they can be found made of different materials, mostly plastic or metallic. The tips of adjustable nipple clamps are often covered by soft rubber so you can enjoy the pleasing pinch without damaging the sensitive skin on your nipples. For a little extra intensity, you can try some weighted clamps or for some buzzy bliss, a pair of vibrating nipple clamps. Nipple clamps work their magic by restricting blood flow to the nipples and giving a pleasing pinch. When they are removed the blood rushes back in, making your nips extra sensitive and ready to be lavished with attention!
