Clamps | Bites of Pleasure
Clamps are among the most popular BDSM toys, perfect to walk the line between pleasure and pain, and easily to handle. While mostly used as nipple clamps, they can give their kinky bites to any sensitive part of the body. Some are designed to function purely as body jewelry, while others are optimized for intense sensations of pain.
Clamps are typically used in pairs and connected by a chain. Weights may be hung from the clamps to amplify the pain by increasing the pressure and pinching. The chain may be attached to a second chain, the end of which is connected to a clamp attached to either the clitoris for a female or a cock ring for a male. This variation is known as the “Y clamps” for the shape of the chain linking all 3 connection points when attached to the body.
The main types are the clover clamp, the tweezers clamp and the clothespins style clamp, though any device that applies direct pressure can be used. There are endless variations including some equipped with special attachments such as bells that ring with every step, magnetic weights, or even small vibrators, embedded in the clamp. And there are many common household devices that can nip and snap just as well.
Clothespins | clothespins style Clamps
Common household clothespins are probably the most widespread BDSM toys ever. A clothes-pin style clamp works like the household clothespins — two short lengths of metal, joined by a spring to keep one end closed. This type often comes with screws to adjust the pressure, screwing in to release it.
The traditional design of the Japanese Clover Clamp, also referred to as a “butterfly clamp”creates intense sensations of pain. As increased pulling tension is applied to the clamp, it will cause the jaws of the clamp to close tighter, depending on the amount of pull pressure. Small weights such as fishing line sinkers can be attached to the ends of the clamp to increase the tension. Use them on your slave’s nipples, tongue, clit, or anywhere else your devious imagination might take you.
A new twist on nipple play are these playful Magnetic Nipple Balls. The unique design of these nipple toys create distinct sensations that range from moderate, to painful. These Magnetic Nipple Balls are very strong and will not fall off or shift with movement. The magnets can be warmed under hot water or cooled in the refrigerator.
Another way of DIY nipple torment are chopsticks, or anything similar, tied together with rubber rings. Disposable chopsticks, like you often get in Asian restaurants, will even work without the help of rubber rings. Reason enough to order some sushi.
