How to Use Nipple Clamps to Ease Into BDSM

Have you wanted to dip your toes into the deep oceans of BDSM, but weren’t sure where to start? Well, learning how to use nipple clamps is a great way to get spicy without having to worry about the intense rules and study some of the other activities need – e.g. Bondage.

Plus, nipple clamps aren’t expensive at all and have a wide variety of styles to choose from. In this feature, we’re going to look at what you’re best options are if you’re just starting out. Also, what you can do once the delivery person drops them off.

WHAT NIPPLE CLAMPS CAN DO


The biggest thing nipple clamps can do is give you a whole new world of sensations to experiment with. This means something as simple as increased sensitivity all the way to whatever pain elevations might float your boat.

But it’s not just the feelings of the clamps themselves. It’s what you can do along with them. You can use things like heat or ice, even tickling, licking, or biting.

The greatest thing about nipple clamps is that they’re one of the few adult items or activities that are great for dipping a beginner’s toe into BDSM play. Because things like restraints, hot wax, or ball gags all come with a certain level of necessary research and know-how for rules and safety. Plus, they might be a bit much for those who are very nervous (but still curious) about spicy play.

That being said, I would also include very light spanking only on the bum or blindfolds with nipple clamps under the “great for beginners BDSM” category.”

KNOW YOUR NIPPLE CLAMPS


For the sake of simplicity (and assuming if you’re here you don’t know much about nipple clamps) let’s just break these toys into two categories. Non-adjustable and adjustable.

Some examples of non-adjustable clamps would be the common household clothespin, magnetic balls, or clover clamps. These don’t allow you to change how hard they bear down. However, that doesn’t mean that all of these have the same pressure. Clothes pins will squeeze much harder than clover clamps.

Tweezer Clamps

The adjustable versions can include alligator or tweezer clamps. These allow the user to change how the ends press down on the nipple, so you can enjoy whatever press you prefer.

In general (and if you aren’t able to go to an actual store to test them on your fingers) it’s better to go for the adjustable options.

DECIDE YOUR “EXTRAS”


Clamps come with all sorts of fun additions. There are things like dangling jewelry if you want to feel all pretty. There are weights if you want to have a pulling sensation during play. Some have chains that join them together, bells, tassels, and even additional links with more clamps to attach to other parts of the body.

And, if you want to have something with more control (and pleasure), there are nipple clamps that have vibrators attached to them. Some even can be controlled through your smartphone. So, you or your partner can wear them when you go out and the other person can control the clamps with their phone for some discreet public play!

DON’T FORGET TO COMMUNICATE

Now, before you slap those bad boys on, make sure you talk to your play partner first. What are you nervous about? What is your limit or no-nos? What do you want out of the experience? Don’t be shy. Silence won’t lend to a fun session.

Plus it’s important for everyone participating to know the few safety rules around nipple clamps.

  • Always wash clamps before and after each use – and if switching users.
  • Don’t use clamps for more than 10 minutes if you’re just starting out. Even established players need to limit their play to 30 minutes to avoid circulation problems.
  • Clamps should be comfortably snug, not tight. Emphasis on comfortably.
  • Be extra careful putting them on and taking them off if you have nipple piercings.
  • If you want to increase the intensity, do it little by little.
  • Keep an eye on the area to make sure there are no circulation issues.
  • Always check-in to make sure both sides are having fun!

SO MANY FUN THINGS TO DO


  • You can gently tug and twist them or pull them in different directions.
  • If it comes with a vibrator, you can tease your partner with it.
  • If your partner can have nipple orgasms, you can edge them.
  • Or, you can use it as part of a reward in a simple BDSM scenario.
  • If they have bells, you can grin at the sound they make. Or make your partner try to move without making any sounds.

ALWAYS FOLLOW UP


Remember, after any sort of play (especially if it’s your first time), always have a chat after. Maybe there was something you loved and you want more of. Or perhaps there was something you want less of. Maybe you had some ideas for next time. Also, make sure the nipples are happy campers.
