Not Just For Your Eyebrows Anymore

The Tweezer nipple clamps are rubber-tipped and adjustable to just slightly squeeze or give an intense pinch. Black and sexy, the chain is heavy enough to add weight, but not enough to pull the clamps off. A great toy for a range of players who want to achieve a range of sensations.

extremely useful review
My partner and I aren’t new to nipple play, but I hadn’t yet found a set of clips or clamps that I felt completely confident in until we tried these tweezer style clamps.

The Tweezer nipple clamps by Spartacus arrived on a piece of cardboard backing held in place by shrink-wrap. Or rather they were supposed to be held in place, but just like the other BDSM products I’ve received from Spartacus, the clamps had fallen out of the shrink-wrap and were floating around in the box. So that wasn’t promising.

When we got them out to examine them, I found that the Tweezer clamps were made of sturdy but surprisingly light metal of a sexy black color. I would by no means suspend by the chain (that would be really silly anyway) but I am not worried out the chain snapping with normal wear and pressure. The tips of the clamps are very thin and sharp, so they are covered with rubber tips that can be knocked off, but that can be fixed with a little bit of glue. The rubber tips are porous and while they can be soaped off, they cannot be sterilized. The type of metal is not specified so I’d be a little nervous to get these very wet when cleaning because there might be a chance of rust. I haven’t had any trouble yet, but I’ll be sure to let you all know if I do.

The tweezer mechanism works in such a way that, unlike in alligator clamps or clothespins, in a resting position of nonuse the clamps are in the open position. This makes it much easier to apply them and get them into the level of pressure you are aiming for. To set the clamps on my partner’s nipples, I did have to hold the tips slightly more open than in their resting position just have a bit more control, but I don’t see that as a negative. Once resting in position, there is a metal ring at the base of the two prongs that slides up to tighten the tweezers together. This allows for a great range of sensation from a gentle pinch to the grip of teeth. I felt very confident in my ability to control the amount of pressure being applied and I never once had an issue with the rings sliding back down and loosening them. After a bit of practice I was able to perform this whole process one-handed and without the fear of over tightening by accident. The ring also makes for easy and quick removal if you need to stop play at any time.

I haven’t had any trouble applying the clamps to either erect or relaxed nipples. My partner has smaller nipples while I have rather larger ones, but the clamps fit both of us easily. The chain is too bulky to wear under clothes, but the clamps were able to stay on while lying down and standing up even with tugging on the chain. The time one clip did slip off was when the clamp was only barely tightened.

I did try these clips on my clit and labia, but found the prongs to be a little too thin to be comfortable. They just didn’t have the surface area to apply the type of pressure that wasn’t just a sharp pinching. If that’s your thing, awesome, but it I didn’t find it all that pleasant.

The Tweezer clamps are very simple but very effective and versatile. As a Domme, I feel completely comfortable in my ability to be in control of the level of stimulation. I would recommend these to people into all different types tastes in nipple stimulation. When lightly applied the pressure is all pleasurable, but the clamps can also be a great tool for nipple torture|The Nipple Torture Device. People into light BDSM would be happy with the ability to ease into the sensation from light to intense, and those into heavier play would appreciate the simple design and ease of use.
Experience
The sensation of having these on is amazing. I always come harder when my nipples are played with and I could feel my arousal increase the moment I had these on. It gave me that fluttering just above my clit that I get when my nipples are stroked even though the pressure was just on either side. My partner also loved how they felt and said they greatly added to her climax. When tightened, they gave the feeling of sharp pain when tugged but without being so sharp as to take away from the underlying pleasure.

There are fewer things sexier than watching the expression on my lover’s face as I tighten the ring on these clamps and finding that point at which she’s about to squirm. Okay, so I can think of one thing sexier: taking the chain in my teeth and tugging while I’m propped up and fucking her.

I’m looking forward to using these often for some time to come.

Brief BDSM PSA: Whenever you are using toys that apply any level of pain, it is always best to test run the toys yourself so that you can better gauge what pressure will result in what sort of stimulation. Most importantly, communication is key: talk to your partner before, during, and after play to assure that both of you are happy with how things are going.

    Thanks for the kind comment! They were certainly worth the in depth study. I'm sure there are things I missed that I'll be trying out later. I'll be sure to write a follow up when I have more to report.

    Great review. I (still) don't own a pair of clamps, and these do look like a great place to start. Thanks for all the info :)

    Thanks, Bulma! I'm actually a little surprised how much I'm enjoying these. After trying different types of clamps to not much success, I wasn't counting on these to be that much different--but I've been keeping them next to the bed, not even in the bin with the rest, if that tells you how much I've been enjoying them myself!

    Nicely done review. I've got a pair of these myself (though they're not black, sadly, just silver) and like them a lot.

    You're quite welcome, Dame Demi. I didn't know the price of these when I did the review, but I was going to guess at least $20, so I'm also very impressed at how affordable these are.

    I've always wondered about these clamps because they don't seem like they'd be too good or painful enough - does the thing that tightens them stay in place once tightened?
  • Viv

    @Sir. First off, the only trouble I've had with the rings slipping down is on the lightest, barely doing anything setting and if I put them on things bigger than a nipple. Like my pinky finger, it's fine. On my thumb, the ring begins to slip.

    As for your other question, if these are painful enough, that's hard to answer since painful enough can mean so many different things for different people. Here's what I've come up with, and this is probably going to sound a little silly. For this I'm comparing these clamps with two other toys, one on either side. The tightest setting on the Tweezers is much harder than on a standard wooden clothespin, but not as tight as the the hardest setting on an alligator style clamp. So here's what i did to show the difference objectively. I put each of these on their hardest setting on the thickest part of a pretzel--the tiny twist variety--and observed the results. The clothespin just turned into a handy pretzel eating device. The Tweezer cracked the pretzel but didn't break it, and the alligator clamp snapped the pretzel.

    So, will the Tweezers deliver as much pain as more hardcore clamps? No, not at all, but we've found these to be perfect for us--I like the tightness on the alligator clamps but they sometimes can be a little much. I think these are perfect for that intermediate level but are adjustable enough to accommodate beginners. I would say that if you really wanted something with a ton of kick behind it to check out the alligator clamps instead, but I'd steer clear of the wide spartacus clamps as I've found those are just too heavy to stay put. Hope that helped!
