How to Use Nipple Clamps and Suckers

We’ve all got nipples, and this guide will help you all achieve amazing nipple pleasure

Whatever your sexual identity, your nipples are two of the most sensitive parts of your body, so it's well worth learning to lavish them with erotic attention.

All humans are born with nipples. Why? Simply because nipples are the way females feed young babies with breast milk. But because nipples develop in the womb before testosterone is produced around nine weeks of age, which influences male babies’ future development, blokes are born with nips too.

To which we say, yay, because the nerves connected to your love buds can provide sexual pleasure no matter what sex you identify with.

So if you want to find out all about nipple masturbation, nipple pleasure, what is a nipple clamp and how to use a nipple clamp, read on.

Why Nipple Clamps, Suckers and Other Products Work

Nips are super-sensitive, probably second only to the clit in sensitivity.

So why the hell did someone think naming a sex toy a 'clamp' was a beaut idea?

Factoid #1: Nipple Clamps don’t hurt

That’s right. Unless you are intentionally seeking to create pain during nipple BDSM play, a nipple clamp should not hurt.

Think of it like this - does salad get hurt when it is served with tongs? We don’t think so. We’ve never heard a scream from a lettuce leaf or a cry from a cucumber. The Fifty Shades of Grey The Pinch Adjustable Nipple Clamps could just as easily be named Nipple Tongs instead of nipple clamps.

How about Nipple Earrings? That is a name that will not frighten the horses. We have Bondage Boutique Adjustable Tweezer Nipple Clamps, a kind of chesticle chain that might as well be thought of as Golden Globe jewellery.

The way nipple clamps and nipple suckers work is to draw blood into your nipples and make them extra-sensitive after removal. It’s that simple.

Nipple clamps and suckers provide outstanding stimulation with all sorts of intensities, and they're especially great for anyone who doesn't enjoy vibrations.

Nipple suckers apply gentle suction to your breast buttons, perking up inverted nipples. Nipple clamps firmly grip the nips themselves, creating direct stimulation as gently or as pinchy as you want it to be. Remember, the key word is adjustable - so you can create your own headlight adventures.

Nipple clamps and suckers are great for solo exploration or couple play.

Guide to Using Nipple Clamps and Suckers

Add Lube

At Lovehoney, we say lube makes all sex toy play more enjoyable, and that include these nip toys. Lube enhances sensation (especially if you use a warming or tingling lube) and ensures a good suction seal, so whack on some lube, peeps.

“One thing I like to do is to squeeze on them when they are on my nipples as it feels like someone is sucking on them. Just remember to add lube to the rim so it has a good suction on you.” - I'mhavingfun

But too much or too little lube may not work, so experiment to find the right amount for you. We recommend a water-based lubricant since it will be compatible with all types of clamps and suckers.

Start softly

We reckon for your first time using nipple clamps or suckers, give them a test run on a less sensitive area of your body first. Try the tip of your finger or your earlobe. Start on a loose setting and increase the tightness slowly until the pinch feels right for you.

“These nipple clamps are extraordinary. The adjustable strength of grip allows for the perfect grip. Unless you are hardcore, they really do the job.” - That's it. Just there

Factoid #2: Wear them for 10 mins max

We need to advise you to never wear your clamps or suckers for more than 10 minutes at a time. Because if you disrupt your blood circulation for longer, it may leave the area numb instead of extra-sensitive. Remember that nipple clamps or nipple suckers should never be painful. You can always take them off for a break, move onto some other foreplay and come back to nipple play again.

Sensation seeking

You might be someone who likes the lightest touch on your love buds - or conversely, a serious tug gets your juices flowing.

The great thing about nipple toys is that they cater for all cummers - if you want a gentle suction action from some Lovehoney Perfect Pair Silicone Nipple Suckers, go for it.

Alternatively, if you’d like a more intense tug on your nips, you can seek out some DOMINIX Deluxe Weighted Nipple Clamps or non-adjustable metal clamps, like the Metal Worx Magnetic Crystal Tip Nipple Clamps that really squeeze.

Most nipple clamps have rubber or silicone tips that should be used to pinch your nipples. If they’re adjustable, they may have an adjustment ring you can slide up the arms or an adjustment screw you can twist to increase or decrease the intensity.

“Wow, what a sensation as I tightened the clamps... As I pulled the clamp up tighter the sensation was unbelievable. I feel so sexy even without a partner. I wear them around the home and love to look at them on my breasts.” - Sexy Older woman

You can sexperiment wearing your nipple clamps or nipple suckers during foreplay or even sex with your partner - they’ll make sure your nipples are always part of the fun, even if your partner’s hands or mouth are occupied elsewhere.

When you remove nipple clamps, you may experience a rush of arousing tingles to the area - do ask your better half to follow up with licks, strokes, kisses and tickles, as your own pleasure will be lovingly heightened.
