Best Nipple Clamps and Suckers – A Guide to Nipple Toys

When it comes to sexuality, nipple pinching and nipple pulling are not the sorts of things that most people’s minds immediately jump to. However, it is entirely possible to have a nipple orgasm, aka "nipplegasm" without touching the penis/vagina. Women’s and men’s nipples are extremely sensitive erogenous zones, so arousing them or enduring bondage nipple teasing is a great way to maximize your libido without directly touching the genitals.

A recent study performed on women in MRI scanners found that nipple stimulation directly activated the sensory cortex which then stimulated the genitals. This is what makes it possible for some men and women to have a nipple orgasm.

Both men and women can enjoy nipple sucking orgasms and nipple play, although it tends to be more intense for women because their nipples are usually larger and “pointier” than men’s. Still, this shouldn’t deter both sexes from enjoying the wide variety of nipple toys on the market! Here we’ll give you a basic overview of the common nipple toys out there and suggest some of our favorites to try!

How to Use Nipple Clamps

Using nipple clamps is mostly quite straightforward – you attach clamps to your nipples and leave them there for a while. However, there are different styles of nipple clamp which require different usage – here are the main types and subtypes you’ll find online:

Nipple Clamps

Most of the time, you’ll be dealing with regular nipple clamps that pinch onto your nipple in one way or another. These clamps are split up into subtypes as follows:

How to Use Nipple Clamps

Clover Clamps

Clover clamps are very popular sex accessories that are originally of Japanese origin. Sometimes you’ll hear them being called “butterfly clamps” too. Clover clamps are applied to the nipple and held in place by spring tension. If someone pulls on a chain attached to the clover clamps or weights are attached to the ends of the clover clamps, then the tension will become tighter and tighter on the nipples. This makes them great as BDSM nipple clamps in torture scenes.

Clover clamps are best left for experienced nipple play enthusiasts – underestimating their intensity could end in serious pain!

Clothespin-style Clamps

The name “clothespin clamps” is a bit misleading, as these sex accessories tend to look more like half-done alligator clips. Most of these nipple clips attach onto your nipple like a clothespin, with 2 sides pressing together, but one of the sides has adjustable pressure. Most of these toys will have a small screw which you can tighten/loosen to adjust the tightness as desired.

Tweezer Clamps

These are among the easiest nipple clamps for beginners to use, especially if you’re looking for a simple design. Tweezer clamps have a long, thin design, looking a bit like tweezers. They are usually coated with rubber at the nipple end to make things more comfortable for the wearer. The tweezer clamps come with an adjustable ring which slides up and down the length of them – the closer the ring gets to the nipple, the tighter the pressure will be, the further away the ring gets from the nipple, the looser the 2 ends will become.

This video from LoveHoney helps to demonstrate how tweezer clamps and other types of nipple clamps work.

Nipple Suckers

Nipple suckers are very straightforward sex accessories that are ideal for beginners and advanced nipple play fans alike. You simply squeeze them in your hand, apply them to the nipple, and then let them go again. The air pressure will suck on your nipple, causing it to become very erect and sensitive. Most nipple suckers have simple all-in-one designs but you can also get toys where the suckers are attached to a separate pump, allowing you to increase the air pressure once they’re already in place.

Vibrating Nipple Clamps

Vibrating nipple clamps, in case you hadn’t guessed it, are nipple clamps that vibrate! These toys usually attach on like traditional nipple clamps in the clothespin style, although various combinations exist. The clamps are attached to small bullet vibrators which produce strong vibrations throughout the sensitive nipples, helping men and women to experience intense nipple stimulation directly. These clamps tend to be used for pleasurable bondage nipple teasing as opposed to torture or pain.

Best Nipple Clamps for Beginners

Simple tweezer-style nipple clamps for beginners

LoveHoney are great at making basic sex toys and simple sex accessories, and these adjustable tweezer clamps are another great example of their expertise. Featuring a simple design and trademark LoveHoney color scheme, these tweezer nipple clamps are fully adjustable and easy to put on, providing you with a unique and changeable nipple pinching experience. The only downside for me is the aesthetics of these clips – they’re very feminine and non-threatening, so not ideal for those who prefer a more extreme design to their BDSM sex accessories.

When it comes to BDSM, you always have to take things that little bit further! These BDSM nipple clamps are in the clothespin/alligator clip style, featuring adjustable screws which make it easy to dial the pressure up or down as your dom sees fit. However, these clamps are also attached to a breathable silicone ball gag via strong 8-inch chains, forcing your sub to stay in a restricted position and limit their speech. The collar is adjustable between 16-22 inches, so it’s suitable for most men and women, and there are 2 oversized O rings features which allow this BDSM device to be attached to other restraints and bondage furniture.

Boasting the popular adjustable clothespin/alligator clip feature, these clips would be brilliant for administering male nipple pain in a gothic BDSM scene or around some votive lighting to give it that old-school underground Latin brotherhood feel.

Mini little PVC nipple suckers!

These simply-designed mini nipple suckers measure 1 inch across and are made from 100% PVC, so you know that you’re getting a simple and reliable nipple sucking experience. They come in both pink and purple depending on your preference, which suggests that they may be marketed more toward women. The simple “pinch and let go” motion of small nipple suckers like these makes them ideal for beginners who are trying clamping for the first time.

The look of these mini nipple suckers isn’t particularly exciting, but they’re decent if you like some more vanilla nipple teasing without getting out the medieval whips and chains.

PROS: Small, portable, simple design, PVC construction

CONS: Maybe too small for bigger nipples

Best Nipple Suckers

Unique “nipple erectors” to get the party started!

These nipple suckers are a bit more advanced – featuring a transparent nipple tube which is joined to a pump, allowing you to see the sexiest nipples in their most aroused state! The transparent chamber is actually a really good feature because it enables you to view the nipples (which can be arousing in itself) while helping you to check that they’re not becoming discolored or bruised due to excessive pressure.

Best Nipple Suckers

The only thing I don’t like about these “nipple erectors” is how large and bulky they are – they’d be good for people who want to focus exclusively on nipple sucking orgasms, but if you’re just using them as part of your regular fetish play, they might get in the way a little bit.

PROS: Adjustable pressure, transparent nipple chamber, affordable

CONS: A bit large and bulky



Best Pump-Style Nipple Suckers

Milk them nipples dry!

This nipple sucking pump system from Blush is a great way to provide a very specific amount of pinch and pressure to someone’s nipples, whether you’re tightening the grip of the clamps or increasing the suction. Ideal for couples play, the nipple chambers on this toy measure 0.6 inches across and 2.75 inches in length, giving you lots of space to inflict male or female nipple pain. The nipple chambers are also completely clear, allowing you to see the torture unfold before your very eyes!

Best Pump-Style Nipple Suckers

PROS: Unique pump design, clear nipple chambers, affordable, great for couples play

CONS: Medical-like aesthetic



Fun Nerdy Nipple Clamps

Nipple clamps! I choose you!

You know what I want when I’m being sexually tortured? I want to be reminded of my misspent youth watching Pokémon in the ‘90s. These cool clothespin-style nipple clamps come with Pokéballs attached to the ends – they’re great for a nerdy couple who are into BDSM couples play. These tit clamps are fully adjustable, so you can make the pressure as tight or as loose as you desire.

Fun Nerdy Nipple Clamps

I was trying to cook up some sort of Pokémon-related pun about “evolving” into a nipple orgasm, but honestly, I don’t think that nipple clamps and Pokémon have a lot of crossover. There are a couple of Pokémon with nipples, so maybe pretend to be one of them.

PROS: Pokémon-themed nipple clamps, clothespin-style clamps

CONS: You might run into Team Rocket!

Best Amazon Nipple Clamps

Decorative nipple clamp jewelry

These Amazon nipple clamps are actually designed as pieces of erotic jewelry. If you’ve always wanted a nipple piercing but you’ve never been brave enough to go through with it, you could buy one of these ornate Amazon nipple clamps instead! They use the tweezer-style rubber-mounted tit clamps design, boasting a gold-colored finish and draping black diamond design.

Best Amazon Nipple Clamps

These tit clamps cost less than $7, so I doubt that these “black diamonds” are going to be Marilyn-level quality.

PROS: Tweezer-style design, opulent, wearable non-piercing jewelry

CONS: Quality isn’t always 100%



Best Vibrating Nipple Clamps

3 speeds of nipple vibrating pleasure!

If you’re interested in vibrating nipple clamps, look no further than these nickel-plated steel vibrating nipple clamps from the Stockroom! Featuring an alligator/clothespin-style clamp, each clamp has a small bullet vibrator attached which comes with 3 different intensity settings for varied nipple-tingling experiences! The bullet vibes also naturally weigh down the clamps a little, adding additional tug if you’re a fan of nipple pulling. The LR44 batteries used in the vibes can be replaced when they die, but they’re the kind of battery that you’ll have to order online or find in a store with a large batteries section.

Best Vibrating Nipple Clamps

PROS: Robust steel design, 3-speed bullet vibrator for each nipple, clothespin-style clip

CONS: LR44 batteries aren’t easy to replace


Are Nipple Clamps Safe? Some Nipple Clamp Safety Tips

Are Nipple Clamps Safe Some Nipple Clamp Safety Tips

Your nipples are a very sensitive part of your body – their sensitivity is what makes them so fun to play with! However, using tit clamps incorrectly could cause pain, bruising, and serious damage, so here are some tips for using nipple clamps safely.

  • Do a “patch test” by placing the nipple clamp on your ear lobe or another fleshy part of your body. If the clamp is too painful on your ear lobe, then it’s definitely too painful for your nipple.
  • Buy adjustable nipple clamps if you’re a beginner or you’re not accustomed to extended bouts of nipple pinching. Adjustable designs allow you to soften or tighten the pinch and keep yourself comfortable.
  • Always use a safe word if engaging in couples play. Although tugging on a nipple clamps chain can be fun, especially if using the Japanese-style clover clamps, you need to make sure that your partner is safe and having fun too.

If your partner is gagged while engaging in BDSM couples play, you need to find an alternative to a safe word which can be performed while they’re unable to speak. Some BDSM enthusiasts use patterns of grunts, while others use words like "oatmeal" which can still be said when gagged.

  • STOP if your nipples go numb, appear bruised, or appear to be blue/discolored. Nipple pain can be fun to a certain degree, but you don’t want to inflict serious long-term damage. Nipple toys with transparent chambers help you to keep an eye on your nipples.
  • Men’s nipples can be harder to clamp onto because they’re usually smaller and less pronounced than female nipples.
  • If you’re using high-pressure professional-level nipple clamps, I would recommend a maximum of 30 minutes’ play before removing them. Long-term exposure risks irreparable damage.
