Do you love the feeling of having your nipples pinched? Can’t wait to have your partner bite your nipples while you play? Well, nipple clamps may just be your new best friend. Though most often used in the BDSM community, nipple clamps and nipple tweezers are way more accessible than you might think. While you can definitely use them to dominate your partner, you can also use them just to add a little extra excitement to a night out.

What Exactly Are Nipple Clamps?

Nipple clamps and nipple tweezers are a type of sex toy that is applied to the nipples of a person’s body. It pinches the nipple to restrict the flow of blood and can cause pleasure when the clamps are removed from the nipple, thereby allowing the flow of blood to return. Weights can be hung from the nipple clamps to increase the sensation of pressure and pinching.

Nipple clamps and nipple tweezers are used to increase the sensitivity of the nipple, as well as the sexual arousal of the person wearing the nipple clamps and tweezers. The uses of nipple clamps can be anywhere from sexual exploration to see if the person likes using them to breast impact play in BDSM. The reason nipple clamps stimulate, as mentioned above, is that they restrict blood flow to the nipple, trapping the blood that is already there.

What Are Nipple Clamps Used For?

Nipple play can be incredibly hot and satisfying for you and your partner. Nipple play can be used to initiate sexual arousal and to add to sexual arousal during sex. When aroused, the nipples become erect. This is from the release of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone. As long as the nipple area is being stimulated, the oxytocin continues to release. And that can lead to more intense orgasms and a feeling that the whole body was involved in the orgasm.

Nipple clamps are a type of sex toy used to increase sensations in the nipple. They work like clothespins do, but many have extra features. Nipple clamps create a sensation of slight pain and pleasure at the same time. When worn for a few minutes, the nipple area starts to numb. As with pinching and removing clothespins, the sensation happens when the nipple clamps are removed.

It’s easier to adjust the pressure applied with nipple clamps than it is with clothespins. One type of clamp looks like tweezers and comes with a metal ring that moves up and down the arm of the clamps to adjust how tightly they grip the nipple, from mild pressure to intense pinching. Some nipple clamps include an attached vibrator that creates a vibrating sensation on the nipples while they are being clamped. You could also touch a regulator vibrator to a regular nipple clamp to achieve a similar effect.

How to Use Nipple Clamps During Sex?

Do you love the feeling of having your nipples pinched? Can’t wait to have your partner bite your nipples while you play? Well, nipple clamps may just be your new best friend.

Of course, if you're trying nipple clamps for the first time, they can still be a bit intimidating. Brito recommends trying it "first on your finger to enhance awareness of its power to pinch." Then, play with the placement of the clamps - try putting them above or below your nipples and then directly around them. Once you understand the power of the clamp, slowly place them in your desired position being careful not to pinch extra skin. If adjustable, adjust the clamp to your desired strength and then begin playing—either with yourself or your partner.

When you're ready for a rush of endorphins (perhaps right as you're orgasming, or if you need that extra push to get there), release the clamps. After you feel the endorphin release, either remove the clamps completely or slowly put them back on and repeat the process. If you’re playing with a partner, try switching the clamps back and forth throughout your playtime - they work on all genders!

Just make sure you're not having too much fun as leaving your clamps on for more than 20 minutes would cut off your body's natural blood flow to your nipples.

Now you know how to use nipple clamps, but how do you choose the right pair for you? If you're an aspiring enthusiast that is just about getting their feet wet with nipple clamps, look for a pair of clamps that come with an adjuster so that you're able to ease your way into the level of erotic pressure that feels right for you. If you're a seasoned nipple play veteran, you may want to try out vibrating nipple clamps.

Do Nipple Clamps Hurt? What Do Nipple Clamps Feel Like?

Despite popular belief, stimulating your genitals isn’t the only way to have an orgasm. Nipple play can also bring you to that big O. And there are so many ways you can stimulate your nipples to make that orgasm explosive. Experiment with techniques, find out what makes you feel good, and just have fun!

Before you panic about the pain, the feeling of wearing clamps isn't one-size-fits-all. In general, nipple clamps attach directly to the nipple and increase sensation by forcing out the blood flow from the nipple, similar to the feeling of being pinched. The resulting feeling from the pinch feels dull, almost numb.

Depending on the type of nipple clamps, you can experiment with the intensity of the clamp and the slack of the nipple chain, if there is one. Some people like more pain than others, which is we always suggest rookies opt for adjustable clamps so they can slowly increase the intensity and control the level of sensation and excitement.

Regardless of what type of nipple clamp you choose, it's of utmost importance to keep in mind a clamp that hurts before you orgasm might be extremely painful after you experience the big O, so properly timing the removal of the nipple clamps is essential here. Additionally, please note that nipple clamps can cause scarring if used too frequently or with extreme intensity, so again, go slow, exercise caution, have patience, and make sure to give your nipples plenty of time to recover post play.
