Ouch! Might be the first thought you have when you hear the words, nipple and clamp in the same sentence but let me assure you that nipple clamps can bring a whole new level of fun to your sex life and a great addition to any BDSM activity especially if you understand how men and women really feel about nipple play.
Nipple clamps come in sooo many different styles and variations, magnetised clamps held together purely by magnetic force, some that electrify and some that vibrate, some styles joined by chains, attached to collars, some free standing some with decorations, weights, and even jingle bells. Some improvised household items like clothes pegs and chop sticks are popular DIY clamp options. So whether you’re new to clamps of a seasoned veteran there is an Ouch! clamp for you, so here are some styles of clamps from Ouch! A fantastic range of clamps, with lots of choices, they are available here at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and on our online store Adultsmart.
Adjustable – Alligator Style
These Ouch! Adjustable Clamps are the perfect place to start if you’ve never used clamps before, they are easy to use and adjust with the little screw on the side that you just twist and adjust to as tight or loose as you’d like, they are also quick release unlike some of the other adjustable clamps out there, they are just a pinch away from coming off.
This style is also great for beginners because they have that traditional nipple clamp look your partner should hopefully know what’s up just by looking at them, so they are less intimidating this way.
Pincette – Tweezer Style
The tweezer style clamp Pincette is another easy to use style of clamp but a little fiddlier in my opinion than the alligator styles, the tweezer style is preferable if you enjoy how these look, they are long and slender and very nice to look at. To use this style of clamp you move the little rubber stopper up the tweezers to tighten their grip on the nipple. They are adjustable and include the rubber tips on the end for a less intense style of clamp.
Vice – Barrel Style
Barrel style clamps like the Vice clamps are easy to adjust, all you do is twist the barrel to release the pressure the clamps have on the nipple, these are great for the extra weight the barrel part adds to the clamp without technically being weighted clamps and they also look great!
Helix – Mandible Style
The Ouch! Helix clamps look amazing and a little complex but don’t let their looks put you off, they are easy to adjust at their base with a twisting motion, these style of clamps are something to go for if you’d like something a little more advanced than the standard alligator style. They are deceptively intimidating to look at but not as harsh as they look (because they are still adjustable, unlike the very similar looking clover style nipple clamp, which is considered to be the harshest of them all).
Pinch – Clip Style
Now if you’re after something with some bite, something on the harsher end of the scale, try the Pinch clamps, they are not adjustable and therefore clamp super tight. Not for the faint of nipple.
Pincers – Non-Adjustable Alligator Style
Shaped just like the Adjustable alligator style clamps these are the extreme version, with no way to adjust them just like the Pinch clamp you’re feeling the full force of its clamping ability.
All of the Ouch! clamps and chains are made of stainless steel and aluminum and are completely nickel-free for those with allergies.
Before you rush out and buy your very own Ouch! clamps please read these safety tips about using them:
If it’s your first time using clamps try using them in 5-10 minute intervals and no matter how many times you’ve used clamps please never leave them on for longer than 20 minutes this will cut off circulation and can cause permanent nerve damage to the nipple.
Remember the most painful part about using nipple clamps is when you take them off, so be aware of this and careful when using them on yourself or on a partner.
