With a zipper, you can pull all the pins off at once quickly or pop off a few at a time very slowly. The pleasurable pain occurs as each pin pops off and blood rushes back to the area. You can use zippers in as many ways as you imagination can conjure up. From side to side across the scrotal sac or on other parts of the body like the inner thighs, arms, or chest can be especially fun.
For genitals, you can clamp the scrotum, foreskin, the skin along the penile shaft (which can be difficult with an erection), head of the penis, and even the perineum. Different areas and different types of clips will produce a myriad of sensations ranging from pleasurable to painful.
What Safety Considerations Are There for Genital Clamps?
You should never leave a genital clamp on more than 15 - 20 minutes. As a general rule of thumb, the tighter the clamp, the sooner it should be removed. Check the area every few minutes and if it goes numb, turns purple, or otherwise reacts oddly, remove the clamp right away. It’s also important to never clamp the testicle itself or the entire shaft of the penis-- only use clamps on the scrotal or penile skin. Finally, the skin in this area is very delicate. More intense clips like plastic clothes pins with grooved grips can tear the skin if they are yanked too hard or quickly. It’s fine to use these types of clamps; just make sure to take extra caution.
How Do I Get Started?
If you think you might enjoy penile and scrotal clamps, pick up a package of clothespins at your local dollar store and try them out alone first. Experiment with placement, number of pins, and the level of pain or pleasure you are comfortable with. Once you get the hang of it, you can go on to experiment with different types of clamps and even invite a partner to play along. You can use them along with penile vibrators or couple them with other BDSM equipment like restraints or a blindfold as part of an erotic role play. Now that you know how much fun genital clamps for men can be, what are you waiting for?
