Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee

The intense sensation is unrivaled by any other clamps I've come across. They are durable, attractive, and sturdy. Not for beginners, this is a hardcore BDSM toy and not for the faint of heart.

Pros:
Durable, evil, and fun for true pain sluts. Good craftsmanship and design. Versatile.

Possibly too strong for beginners. Sometimes tough to open or close smoothly.

Use

These clamps are no laughing matter. For the wearer, that is! Your dominant will be in giggling fits when you're rigged up to these heavy-duty, deceptively evil butterfly clamps. Normally, these are used on my nipples, but I've also been subjected to these biting down on my genitals (for a brief period of time, thankfully).

For the discerning, devious dominant, the most fun to be had would be yanking your chain--instantly upping the intensity and closing the clamps even tighter.

Don't use these if you're faint of heart. Just don't let them near you! They are the toughest, meanest clamps I've used, and they were my first. They don't always close/open smoothly, which can be unnerving for the poor wearer, but that's the only issue I've experienced. Because of the punch these clamps pack, and the occasional issue getting them open, I can really only recommend these to hardened pain sluts.

Using these on the genitals, just around and above the clit, feels amazing--because yes, I am one of the aforementioned pain sluts! It's nasty and a huge turn-on. When you take them off, don't hold your breath! It hurts taking them off, especially if your dominant is a total sadist who painstakingly removes them millimeter by millimeter. You'll be rewarded, though: the sensitivity after removing from the genitals (or nipples, for that matter) always has me seeing stars and pissing off the neighbours.

I have fairly full DD cup breasts, but the chain still has a lot of slack, so I imagine much more endowed women could enjoy (or love to hate) the butterfly clamps. The clamp part is bulky, so wearing under clothing would be limited to very large jackets or big hoodies. So it's doable, but you can't walk out in a sleek, sexy little number and have these going on. Unless you're in the right bar or club. That's a great pick-up line, "Hey, I need a little help. It's kind of like a Band-Aid. I need someone to take these off for me. The bathroom's over there..."

I'm impressed by the construction. These clamps have lasted me almost five years, and I can be very rough on my toys. As far as I can tell, they function and look as good as they did from day one. I really have never used them in contact with water. I wouldn't recommend it; I imagine they'd rust.

Material / Texture

These clamps are constructed almost entirely of metal. Which, by the way, can be VERY cold! Freezing them prior to use could be fun for a sadist, and for sensation/pain sluts alike. The part of the clamps that actually comes into contact with the nipples/genitals/what-have-you is made of rubbery plastic with little bumps to help them better latch onto slippery bits.
    • Firm
    • No odor
    • Not porous at all

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

The shape is elegant. Though it looks very dungeon-esque, there is a whimsical charm to the shape of the clamps themselves. The chain (measuring in at 19 inches) is smooth and shiny, and has retained these qualities over the years. I feel sexy when I see myself in the mirror with these. They look exotic and put me in a harem girl roleplay kind of mood.

These are designed to pinch upon application but to really heat things up if you tug the chain. This is really fun when you're having sex in doggy position, because the chain swings right along with your breasts. The pleasure/pain mixture is heavenly. Of course, if you're into the "discipline" part of BDSM, a swift tug on the chain should correct any bratty behaviour on the part of the submissive!

The clamps can "stick" once in awhile, meaning they don't open or close as cleanly as I'd like (especially when I want them off NOW!). This doesn't happen terribly often, though, and doesn't detract too much from my enjoyment of owning this toy. Lubricating the hinges might help this minor issue.

I imagine most any nipples will be easily accommodated. I tried it on my male partner's almost non-existent nipples and they fit. The clamps open up quite widely, so they should handle very large nipples as well. Since they fit my guy's non-existent breasts, small-chested women will have no issues. My breasts are quite large and they fit fine, so again--these are truly "one size" clamps.

The pressure is definitely adjustable. You can squeeze the pads shut tightly or lightly. If you only lightly pinch the nipples between the plastic pads, the tug of the chain will feel that much more painful. Be careful when doing this; it pulled the clamps right off and hurt in a decidedly non-erotic way (though no blood was drawn/no marks were left).
    • Beginner
    • Tight clamping
    • Will fit most nipples

Care and Maintenance

You can wash this in hot soapy water, with or without antibacterial soap. You could also use toy cleaner. I would definitely recommend drying these absolutely thoroughly as they are metal and there is significant rust potential. For me, I don't wash them with water every use. I often spray on an organic antibacterial cleanser that evaporates quickly.

I store these in a lightly padded pouch with a zipper. They do clang around a lot if you're worried about someone moving/hitting into/messing with your toy storage, so it's not very discreet unless you keep them segregated from the rest of your toys and padded by thick cloth. They are quite small when all folded up and fit in my hand easily, so they store well and don't take up much room in my toy chest.
    • Dry thoroughly
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store

Packaging

I received these as a gift, and they were slipped under my mattress, so I don't recall any packaging.

Personal comments

These are so strong, I would suggest working up to a few minutes at first. Using clamps anywhere for extended lengths of time can be damaging to the nerve, as they severely restrict blood flow to the area clamped off. The nipples are a concern, but be especially careful when using any clamps on the genitals. If they are marketed as nipple clamps, they exercise even more caution. If you really lose feeling or areas turn purple, you need to get them off right away.

Experience

This being my first pair of clamps, all others have disappointed me. I love sensation play and I need intensity, so these really worked well for me. I love and hate them at the same time, but it's amazing when the blood rushes back to the previously clamped area. The slightest breath or touch drove me wild. I've left these on my nipples possibly longer than is recommended, but I am fairly experienced and play safely. I think the maximum was about 20 minutes. I usually use them for about 10 or so. My partner enjoys torturing me with them, putting them on and off through

    Haha, I know it's been awhile since I have been on (long depressing story). But THANK YOU to everyone for reading and watching. I was a little shy, I admit!

    thanks, tim, hehe

    And Owl, you just made my day (six months after your comment!)

    Elnoa, they are definitely intense...especially when you have a sadistic partner...which I don't have these days, boohoo!
