Adjustable Torture

If you're looking for nipple clamps that are adjustable, easy to care for, and easy to store; than these might be the right ones for you! However, if you've been using toys for nipple play for a while now, you might find these to be lacking. They're a little difficult to put on at first, and can slip off if not tight enough, but still make a great choice, no matter your pain tolerance!

- Easy to Care For

- Can Slip Off
- Might Not Be Painful Enough
- Difficult to Put On

extremely useful review


These adjustable press style nipple clamps from Spartacus are designed to give your nipples a little attention! Since these are fully adjustable, you get to control how loose to leave them, or how tight to make them, just keep in mind that the looser they are, the easier they come off.

This is more or less a one size fits all item, and isn't limited to a specific gender. Whether you're new to nipple play or have been doing it for a long time, I imagine this item works well no matter the experience you have.

These can easily be worn during intercourse and foreplay, but would be much harder to keep under clothing since they are fairly sizable and would show up through your clothes. While you can wear these on your own, I think they work best with a partner. It's far more exciting to have your lover pull your chain than yourself!

Material / Texture

These sexy clamps are made from Metal which Eden rates a 9/10 on their material safety scale and is made from food-grade material, is non-porous, latex, and phthalates free.

These clamps are very shiny and are almost entirely smooth, but do have the company name and logo stamped into the metal and the screw obviously has some texture to it. The areas that touch your nipples are totally smooth though. The metal feels very high quality, won't bend easily, and is a nice weight, which is especially obvious and appreciated when in use.

There are no parts on these clamps that have any give to them. There are working parts that make the toy move, but each piece is rigid, since it is made entirely out of metal. Because the edges are nice and smooth, there's not worry about shape edges accidentally cutting you. These are a very safe and comfortable option to try out.
    • Not porous at all
    • Rigid
    • Smooth

Shape / Design / Size / Fit

These clamps are designed to fit nipples of almost any size and work with just about any pain tolerance. You control how firm the clamps squeeze your nipples, which make it a wonderful option for someone who isn't sure about this type of play.

These are a little difficult to put on and make sure that they stay in place. If you have a very low pain tolerance than you might want to just remove the chain and use the clamps by themselves. The weight of the chain might pull them right off your nipples, causing frustrating and unexpected discomfort. This is only if you plan on using these on more of a loose setting.

(showing one fully open, and one fully closed)

The moving parts of the clamps are all in one piece and are attached with a linked chain. The outer part of the clamp forms the shape of a squared 'U', only one side of the 'U' goes against your erect nipple. There's a screw that's attached to a small arm on the opposite side of the 'U' that when turned clockwise, tightens the arm against your nipple, pressing it in between the arm and the side.

If you're used to a lot of nipple pain, these might seem a little weak for you, but if you're newer to nipple 'torture', than these are great! They aren't uncomfortable to wear, but do tend to be annoying if not put on tightly. The chain looks short when you're holding it up, but it's just the right length to reach both nipples with a little slack in between.

Chain Length: 12"
Each Link Width: 5/16"
Each Link Height: 1/4

Clamp Width: 1"
Clamp Height: 1"
Thickness: 1/8"
Side Width: 1/4"
Screw Length: 1"

Total Weight: 0.1lbs

    • Beginner
    • Will fit most nipples

Care and Maintenance

These clamps are simple to care for! When necessary, these can be cleaned with antibacterial soap and warm water, sex toy cleaner, can be boiled, put on the top rack of your dishwasher, and can be cleaned with a 10% bleach solution. You can air dry them or use a towel, but make sure that they're dry when you put them away.

These are very easy to store! The package that it comes in would work, but a smaller pouch or container would work fine. These could also just be put into your toy box, dresser drawer, or nightstand without worry. If someone were to find them, I don't think they would instantly know what they're for, unless they're familiar with sex toys or know you have a huge stash of them (don't we all!?).

Traveling with these is easy. They tuck nicely into a purse or backpack and don't take up a whole lot of room.

Should you get water based, oil based, or silicone based lubricant on these, you don't need to worry! Metal is compatible with them all. While there isn't a need to lube these up, it is always important to know your toy's lubrication compatibility.

These adjustable nipple clamps come in a small clam-shell style, clear plastic package that looks like it belongs on a peg hook. On the front, you can see the clamps through it, as well as the company name displayed at the top, and a small image of a nude back on the paper insert(though it's a naked back, there's no nudity obviously displayed on the package, such as breasts). The package is not discreet since you can see through it and read what it is, but it doesn't scream 'sex toy' either.

The back of the package gives a little information about the clamps and shows what they are, in four different languages at the bottom of the paper.

The paper can easily be disposed of and the package kept for storage, or both can be recycled if you have a different storage idea in mind.
    • Good for storage
    • Minimal
    • Not discreet


When I saw these I knew that I had to have them! Over the past couple of years I've realized that I rather enjoy my nipples being played with, and I was very interested in trying out some clamps! These seemed like a smart and obvious choice for me, since my nipples are rather large and I worried that some of the other clamps would be too small or cause too much pain.

When I first tried these on I got a little bit frustrated. It didn't feel like they fit me right, and despite being adjustable, seemed too small. I walked away and decided I would try again later when I was less frustrated.

When I tried them out again, I had much greater success. The only problem that I have is with tugging on the chain. I can put these fairly tight, but it never seems tight enough 'cause only a small amount of tugging pulls them right off my nipples, causing me accidental pain. I've been playing with putting them tighter and it's gotten better, but it's still something that bugs me about them.

I was also hoping that these would make my nipples more sensitive, but they feel about the same in and out of the clamps. So these are more for look than anything when it comes to what I get from them.
Follow-up commentary
I really wanted to fall in love with this clamps, but that just didn't happen. The weight makes them much easier to slip off, causing unexpected pain and discomfort. If you're into actual pain rather than the pressure I was looking for, then these would work well for you. They are a great quality and are well made and while I do appreciate that, these just didn't end up working, for me, the way I had hoped they would.

    Hmm... I loved these when I first saw them, but now I'm not so sure, as yours is not the first I've read about them slipping off... I guess I'll need to think about it before I buy a pair.

    Thanks for the follow up review, it really helped me decide to not buy these. I have a large areola but small nipples and I am unsure about nipple clamps...
