15 Best Nipple Clamps For A More Intense Orgasm

Experts explain the best—and safest—ways to use them.

nipple clamps

There are many different ways to engage in sensation play, but if you’re a fan of having your nipples pinched or even bitten, nipple clamps might be your new best friend.

This type of sex toy can seem intimidating at first, but nipple clamps "intentionally promote pleasurable sexual stimulation," says Dr. Janet Brito, a certified sex therapist in Honolulu. Whether you’re looking to incorporate these during solo play or with a partner, they can cause an endorphin release that elevates an orgasm.

Brito recommends trying it "first on your finger to enhance awareness of its power to pinch." Then, play with the placement of the clamps before slowly placing them directly around your nipples.

First-timers should also look "for a pair that comes with an adjuster so you can ease your way into the level of pressure that feels right for you," says Polly Rodriguez, founder of Unbound, an online sex toy shop. She also advises against leaving clamps on for "more than 15 to 20 minutes" since you're cutting off blood flow. And remember, when engaging in any kind of BDSM play, aftercare is a must.

Ahead, find the 15 best nipple clamps for beginners and seasoned pros:
