We’re looking ahead to the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey film come Valentine’s Day with our new series that aims to teach all about the sex toys used in the activities listed on the Dominant/Submissive contract Christian Grey presented to Ana Steele. We’re jumping headfirst into the BDSM waters with our first edition on how to use nipple clamps.
Now, before we teach you how to use nipple clamps, we should probably explain about the contract. Christian wants to have a relationship with a dominant/submissive dynamic, and for him, part of creating this dynamic exists in the form of a contract. He, the dominant, wrote the contract and Ana, the submissive, must adhere to it (to the degree that she accepts the terms).
Now, a contract like this is in no way required or necessary to experiment with the kind of wildly hot sex that they get up to; it’s simply another way to explore the kinky power dynamic. You can also just discuss with your partner what you are and are not willing to do, being sure to stay mindful of each other’s needs and desires.
Christian’s contract goes into great detail, but The List is what almost sends Ana running… at the same time, however, it greatly intrigues her.
“Which of the following types of pain/punishment/discipline are acceptable to the Submissive?
- Nipple clamps
- Genital clamps
- Hot wax
- Other types/methods of pain”
With that, an entirely new sexual realm was opened up to her… and the same can be opened up to anyone. With mutual respect, trust, and love, every couple can enjoy the sexy perks of BDSM play.
Physically, how to use nipple clamps is relatively simple; you simply attach the end to the nipple, and depending on the type of clamp or ring (which we’ll break down in greater detail below), you can adjust the pressure for greater or lesser clenching. The steady, tingling pinching is a thrilling sensation all on its own, and particularly exciting when paired with the kinky power play of BDSM.
For those who are new to BDSM, how to use nipple clamps is almost more about getting into the right mindset. The key is communication. Talk with your partner about what interests and excites you, and direct your desires that way. For instance, if the submissive is using the nipple clamps, the power of adjusting the pressure can be put completely in the hands of the dominant.
If roles are reversed and the dom is the one using the nipple clamps, the sub can be directed how to use them, or if they enjoy watching them being used, the dom can make the sub do other sexual things before they will be allowed to be seen using the clamps. If you find that this type of kinky power play is for you and you start thinking about the possible scenarios, you’ll discover that you now have access to an entirely new sexual world you can explore together.
Just like other sex toys, nipple clamps come in a variety of styles. Below we parse a few of the different kinds to help you decide where to start as you’re learning how to use nipple clamps.
These sexy little goodies are the Fifty Shades of Grey Pleasure & Pain Nipple Rings, from the Official Pleasure Collection. These are perfect for someone who wants to experience the pinching feeling of a nipple ring without actually getting your nipples pierced. The beads are also weighted for additional stimulation.
Alligator Nipple Clamps
The Alligator Nipple Clamps in Chrome features adjustable, rubber-tipped clamps connected by a chrome chain. A screw on each clamp allows for adjusting the pressure, so they can be easily tightened as much or as little as you like. Feel the tug each time you move and let the excitement build.
Alligator Nipple and Clit Clamps
Although Ana draws the line at genital clamps, that doesn’t mean everyone will. The Y-Style Alligator Nipple and Clit Clamps offers the opportunity to stimulate both at the same time, with a chain that extends from the nipples to the clit. This is one for the most adventurous couples out there.
Star Charm Tweezer Clamps
Tweezer-style nipple clamps are one of the most common types, and they come in a number of sexy decorative styles. The Star Charm Tweezer Clamps with Beads feature stunning blue beads with a star charm, and are controlled by sliding the metal ring toward the nipple. The closer the ring is to the nipple, the tighter the clamp.
Magnetic Nipple Clamps
Magnetic clamps, like the Fetish Fantasy Gold Collection from Pipedream, are a unique form that uses the power of the magnetic force to stay on. These are very easy to use, making them a good choice for total beginners learning how to use nipple clamps. The ends are accented with bright crystals and the glittering gold will positively gleam against breasts.
