Nipples are often an overlooked source of pleasure that, when done correctly, can lead to sensational orgasms. Increasing sensitivity and delivering an intense natural high, there’s nothing quite like the sensations experienced during nipple play. Research shows that nipple stimulation is processed in the same region of the brain as when stimulating the vagina and clitoris – making it part of the holy trinity of female pleasure. Although nipple orgasms are shorter than genital orgasm, they offer greater intensity and supreme sexual sensations.

Playing with nipple clamps not only results in increased sensitivity, it also delivers an incredible natural high, and provides a real taste of submissive satisfaction. So, whether you are looking to try some torture or just have some gentle fun; the nipples are the perfect spot for both tease and torment!

Safety First

As with all aspects of kink, if you or your partner experience any pain, notice any discolouration around the nipples or loss of sensation, stop immediately. As with most things, you need to start softly and build your way up. Start with your hands – this is the most basic way to tease and please. The tissue around the nipples tends to be more sensitive than other areas of the body, and will lacerate much quicker. So, take things slowly and monitor your partner’s reactions and body language. If your partner has inverted nipples they are at great risk of infection, so avoid abrasive techniques that could break or cut the skin.

Clamps essentially cut off circulation and, as such, they shouldn’t be left on for long periods of time. Beginners should not leave clamps on for longer than 10 minutes at a time. The more you play, the duration that you are able to leave them on will increase, but even the most competent clamper shouldn’t leave them on for more than 20 minutes.

How do you wear nipple clamp?

Your nipples need to be erect so there’s more for the clamp to grab on to. You can do this yourself through rubbing and pinching the nipple, or get your partner to do it as part of foreplay. Using their fingers or tongue to lightly trace the area around the areola, or softly sucking the nipple will have it erect in no time.
Once you’re erect, grab the nipple and gently pull outward. Place the nipple clamp just behind the nipple on the areola, so you have access to a tender bud that’s waiting for you to do your worst!

Nipple Clamp Types

When it comes to nipple clamps, you’re spoiled for choice. There’s something for all experience levels and kinks. Here’s some of the most popular types available:

Nipple Suckers – are manual suction devices designed for nipple play. The suckers are places over the nipple and manipulated to suction out the air, drawing blood into the nipple and increasing sensitivity. These are perfect for beginners who want to try their hands at nipple play and aren’t quite ready to experiment with nipple torture. For better suction, apply a little water based lube on the rim of the sucker for an even better seal.

Clover Clamps – also known as Japanese Butterfly Clamps are aimed at advanced nipple enthusiasts. The textured rubber pads grip tightly to the nipple and the only adjustment available is the string or chain found at the base of the nipple clamps, which makes the clamp even tighter.

We recommend: Squeezer Teaser Clover Leaf Clamps (€11.47, kinky.ie).

Nipple Weights – is another type of clamp for more experienced players. Nipple weights are designed to give an increased level of tug on your nipples. Start off with a small weight and work your way up for more impressive nipple stretching results!

We recommend: Fetish Fantasy Alligator Nipple Clamps (€17.22, kinky.ie).

Nipple Pumps – are great for beginners who are looking to heighten sensitivity. Nipple pumps consist of one or two small polycarbonate cylinders that are places over the nipples. The air is then sucked out through a pump, which increases blood flow and preps your nipples for play. For best results, apply a little water based lube around the edge of the cylinders to ensure a tight seal.

We recommend: Vacuum Twist Suckers (€22.96, kinky.ie).

Electro Clamps – were designed for those looking to combine electrostimulation and clamps. The Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Nipple Clamps (€ 57.41, kinky.ie) are spring-loaded clamps that are plugged into an electro-power unit; you can go from sensuous tingle to a throbbing tap with a flick of a switch!
