Hold On Tight!

If you don't mind whipping out some super glue for a little DIY touch-up on these little lovelies, I really do think these are an excellent choice. Yes, they're a bit quirky and have their flaws, but once you get them up and running they're a bargain at their price.

extremely useful review
I'd been eyeballing these clamps for quite some time, so when the opportunity to review them presented itself? I jumped at it. My nipples are big fans of tough love, but alligator clamps proved to be a failed endeavor for me. Most are too large for my nipples, and many of them are not adjustable. The thin prongs of Spartacus' Tweezer Clamps and the ability to customize their bite quite appealed to me, so I snapped those babies on me as soon as I got the package in the mail.

The clamps themselves are about two inches in length and very slender. Each prong has a small rubber pad on it so that the sharp edges of the metal will not cut or scrape your nipple. Each clamp has a small metal ring that encircles both prongs, and can be slid up or down the clamp's length to make it pinch with more or less ferocity. The pressure ranges anywhere from unnoticeable to cringe-inducing. I keep mine mid-way up the prongs at a moderate pinch, but the great thing is that depending on your mood or your experience level you can change your mind and adjust the pinch. From the tip of one clamp across the chain to the other clamp's tip, this piece measures about 18" in length. The metal of the chain is not specified, although if I had to venture a guess I would say nickel-plating is used in its construction.

I was pretty much determined to love these clamps because of how excited I was about them; but, realistically, I have to acknowledge that they are far from perfect. I have improved their quality with a few little touch-ups, but the rubber padding on the tips presents a rather glaring design flaw. In the video you can see that the tips actually slip off when I'm talking, and one of them falls to the floor while I'm speaking. These tips are not glued on and come off very easily. This is a pain not only figuratively, insofar as they can be lost and it's annoying to parse layers of carpet in search for them, but they're pretty important to the safety/comfort of your nipples during wear. Yes, the point of nipple clamps is to apply pressure and to create an intense sensation that can vary from a slight pinch to pain. However, without the rubber tips, the sharp ends of these clamps could seriously cut the nipples and possibly cause permanent nerve damage or scarring. This may seem dramatic, but think about it: when you slide that little washer all the way up the neck of these clamps, you are applying quite a lot of pressure. If the rubber pad slips off with this much pressure on those sharp prongs, you could really sustain a serious injury.

Now, personally, I didn't let this get in my way. A dab of Guerrilla Glue seems to have solved the problem for me, at least for the moment (will update if this changes) and the clamps are working very nicely. For the price, which is very reasonable, I don't mind a quickie DIY touch-up. This was the only real issue that I encountered and everything else about these clamps is wonderful. The weight of the chain does mean that they tend to slip off if I'm moving about too much, but this would be true of any similar clamp style with a heavy chain. To remedy this, many people slip the chain through the O-ring of a collar (as demonstrated in the video) to relieve the chain of some of the weight that it carries. If you don't wear a collar, you could thread the chain over a sturdy necklace if you'd like. This is how I prefer to wear my clamps because my nipples are on the smaller side and these clamps do tend to slip when I move around too much in them. I would be careful that the pads do not get any lube or sweat on them because this makes them VERY slippery and almost impossible to keep on.

Nipple clamps of all kinds should never be worn tighter than you feel comfortable with, and you should consider excessive and unpleasurable pain a clear sign to stop or decrease the intensity of what you are doing. If you lose feeling in your nipples during use, you should cease use immediately.
Experience
Okay, so now that I've told you everything that's wrong with these, you must think I really hate them. I don't! I felt that I had to rate them the way that I did because the rubber tips seem very poorly thought through and really could result in someone getting hurt, but for myself? Gluing the tips on took a few seconds out of my life and improved the performance of the Spartacus Tweezer Clamps infinitely. I absolutely love the way these feel. I can be very hard to please at times, finicky even. Having the ability to control exactly how much pressure I can experience is amazing. Especially because from day to day depending on what bra I've been wearing, what kind of play I've been engaging in, if I'm pre-menstrual or not, or whatever, my nipples may feel more or less sensitive. Some days I'll likely want these on maximum strength nipple-twisting and on others, feather light pinching. With these tweezer clamps I have the power to control the pressure and make those calls, and I love that. I love toys that give me options.

The sensation of cool, smooth metal chain link trailing across my breasts gives me goose bumps. When threaded through my collar's O-ring, any movement of my neck or head gives a tug on the chains and sends a little shiver of pleasure over my body. Just another way I can control just how much sensation I want, which is always a good thing. And with these on, my partner's hands are free to do other things. During oral sex I absolutely *love* to have my nipples pinched while I climax. It's just my thing; it's not necessary during any other sex act, but for oral sex it's almost a must. These clamps are awesome because my partner can use his hands during climax to dig his nails into my thighs, play with my ass, and do any number of other things. And that is very very nice.

I also have tried using these on other body parts, namely my labia and clitoris. I love tightening one clamp on either side of my outer labia or fastening one clamp on my clitoris to send blood pumping through the area and giving me an intense bittersweet ouchie feeling. They're pretty versatile and have many delicious applications if you have a creative mind!
Follow-up commentary
These clamps are still holding up surprisingly well in spite of the super-glued tips. I find that they're a little too easy to be knocked off during intercourse because I don't have those super pointy gumdrop porn star nipples, unfortunately. But when I'm lying on my back enjoying some head or masturbating either on my back or kneeling or standing? Very very very nice. My partner has always been startled (and glad) that my nipples are a kind of magic button that with a little pinching and twisting can bring me to orgasm in seconds flat when combined with some decent vaginal stimulation. My nipples are possibly more erogenous than my G-spot or even my clitoris, so these clamps have seen some fairly consistent use. Still holding up wonderfully, still pinching me just the way I like it, and still highly recommended to all by yours truly. Just don't forget the super glue!
