Nipples are erogenous zones only for women, right? Well, ask around and you’ll soon find out that many men find nipple stimulation highly arousing. For some men, a gentle touch or tweak is enough to send them over the edge, but the kinkier ManLove heroes know that nipple clamps are the way to go when gentle isn’t enough.

I know what you’re thinking: clothespins! Yes, these can certainly be used as nipple clamps, and they are much cheaper than actual clamps. However, they aren’t adjustable. So beginners—or those who like less pain—should probably avoid them. If you’re interested in nipple play but aren’t sure how much pain you enjoy, try adjustable clamps first. Tweezer clamps are a great way to get started, but if you want the look of something more hardcore, these adjustable clamps by Spartacus have a sexy, hardware-type feel to them.

Are you pretty sure you can handle more pain? Butterfly clamps may be perfect for you or your partner. This type of clamp is not adjustable, and the rubber tips make sure that they will stay on, no matter how much you flick them or tug on them. If you want to take it a step further, you could try out some weighted clamps or something more…shocking. Don’t be afraid to indulge your fantasies!

Before you order your first set of clamps, though, it’s important to remember that the nature of nipple clamps is to cut off circulation. So playing with them for longer than thirty minutes isn’t recommended. (Interestingly, the most intense part of playing with nipple clamps can be taking them off. Make sure you or your partner is prepared for the pain of the returning sensation.) And of course, if you experience any extreme discomfort or pain, the clamps should be removed. It’s important to maintain constant communication to ensure safety. Check out previous articles in the series for information about safe words.
