Things You Should Pay Attention to When Shopping for Nipple Clamps
Albeit their small size, many things make a nipple clamp the satisfying sex toy they are, which goes beyond their visual appearance and price. If you want to have a product that will give your nipples the exciting stimulation they are known for, here are a few things to pay attention to:
Type: There are many types of nipple clamps: tweezer, clover, and alligator are the most common ones, each providing a different nipple stimulating experience. Tweezer clamps are the most popular and easiest to use. They usually have small metal rings at the bottom used to adjust the pressure. Clover clamps are made of metal and provide moderate pressure. Alligator clamps are also metallic but allow you to adjust the tension by tightening or loosening the screws at the tip. Finally, there are also magnetic clamps that look slightly different than the ones we mentioned previously. As their name may have hinted, they are two magnetic pins placed on opposite ends of the subject of stimulation (nipple, clitoris, scrotum, labia, and more). The magnetic force pulls the pins to one another, pressuring the nipple between them and with it, creating a tickling or pinching feeling depending on the magnet’s power.
Jaws/Tip: While most models have a smooth tip, their design varies. Clover nipple clamps are fully metallic and have a metallic pinching tip with three holes that resemble a clover (thus the name). On the other hand, alligator and tweezer clamps usually have a smooth rubber tip, but they may also have “teeth” under the rubber that increases the stimulation. Utimi nipple clips are more minimal and have a different design than the rest. Instead of the standard jaw, Utimi nipple clamps have four screws made of premium metal that press your nipples from four sides. The four screws can be tightened or loosed as you like.
Chain or no chain: Most nipple clamps are sold as a pair connected to one another by a chain. However, to accommodate the different needs and uses, some clamps are sold individually without a chain. A chain is a great addition if you plan to use the clamps during masturbation to pull the clamps with the chain in your mouth or if you want an added stimulation and give your partner something to pull, tug, or twist during sex. You may want to buy the set separately without a chain if you want to use the clamps to stimulate different areas (nipple and penis or clitoris).
Adjustability: Nipple clamps have different adjusting mechanisms, mainly screws and rings. Screw mechanisms are adjusted by twisting the screw, tightening the tip, and applying more pressure. The more you turn the screw, the tighter the pinch, and vice versa. Rings, also called buds or clips, are standard in tweezer clamps. The user needs to pull the ring up and down the tweezers to adjust the pressure. The higher the bud, the tighter the tweezers will be, and with it, the pressure applied to the nipples.
Vibrations: Many nipple clamps have vibrating features for an added spec of fun. The pulses are directed towards the tip of the tweezer and can be turned on and off with the press of a button. Batteries power the vibrations, but they are rarely rechargeable, and the clamps are usually bigger to accommodate the batteries.
Accessories: Many nipple clamps come with an extra clamp to stimulate other areas like the clitoris, labia, or scrotum. Some models also have decorative pieces, but you can also hang your own decorations such as name tags or pendants. Finally, you may also choose a model with chains or without them, as we mentioned above. Depending on their length, the chain can act either as a decoration or further stimulate the wearer by pulling them, tying them, or even choking.
