Nipple clamps. Just those two words may be enough to make you shudder with delight or wince in pain. Even if your initial reaction is more "Ow!" than "Oooh," keep reading. These tittie tweakers aren't as scary as they sound.
Constant Nipple Stimulation
Many people, both men and women, get some level of erotic response from having their nipples played with or sucked. Nipple clamps provide that stimulus while freeing up your hands and mouth to do other things. They put constant pressure on the nipples, which can be intensified with added weights, vibrators, or manual tugging, and heighten they the nipples' sensitivity during play.
Kinds of Clamps
Another type of clamp is based on a forceps design, which is great if you're into doctor/nurse fantasy scenes or medical fetishes. They look like a pair of scissors, and have a locking device between the arms to hold them in place.
Tweezer type clamps are just miniature tweezers or tongs encircled by a metal band that slides up their length to tighten them. Their ends should also be covered with rubber or vinyl cushions.
Clover clamps are a more complicated apparatus that resembles a pair of pliers with two round, flat pads that compress the nipple. Each of the clamps is attached to a chain in such a way that pulling on it tightens the grip of the clamps.
Nipple jewelry combines form and function. These trinkets are mostly for women. We suppose guys might try them on as well, but most guys' nipples wouldn't give them enough to grab onto. One type is a sort of mock – a springy open metal circle with covered ends that tweak the nipple between them. Tension holds it in place, and the effect is like a nipple ring without the piercing. Another sort, which is more bauble and less bite, uses an elastic loop or adjustable lasso that goes around the nipple, often with beads, feathers or tassels attached.
Speaking of nipple rings, if you actually have a pierced nipple, you may need to remove it before attaching the clamps, or else position the clamps perpendicular to the piercing. Because piercing can stimulate growth of nerve endings in the nipples, increasing sensitivity, you may need to use less pressure with the clamps.
Weights and Vibrators
Using Nipple Clamps
The initial pressure of the clamp may will feel intense, and may even be slightly painful for the first couple of minutes. If you can tough it out, the pain will gradually dull and give way to a warm throbbing and tingling, especially if you are already aroused. At this point, you may find that your nipples are hypersensitive, so that the slightest brush or tug on the clamps produces overwhelming sensations. With vibrating nipple clamps, you will probably want to wait till you reach this stage before turning the vibrators on.
Because nipple clamps compress delicate tissue and restrict blood flow, they should never be used for more than 15 minutes at a time. Discontinue use and remove the clamps if you experience real pain (as opposed to pleasurable pain), if the skin becomes broken, or if the nipple turns blue or purple. If you do sustain a nipple bruise or injury, ice it to reduce swelling and discoloration.
When you take the clamps off, brace yourself. Removing them can actually be more painful than putting them on, because the sudden rush of circulation back into nipple brings back feeling to the area. The nipples will be extremely sensitive for a while. Try having your partner blow on them, or brush them lightly with their lips or a feather and see what happens. Later, massage gently with some lotion (or have your partner help) to ease the sting.
For some people, nipple clamps are part of a more involved nipple play scene, which may involve nipple bondage (tying ropes or cords around the breast or nipple) and pumping (using suction pumps or snake bite kits to pump up and enlarge the nipples).
WARNING: Pregnant women should use caution when engaging in nipple play. Stimulation of the nipples releases the hormone oxytocin, which causes uterine contractions and may induce early labor in the later stages of pregnancy.Tips
