A genital clamp is a type of wearable sex aid worn on the genitals either before or during sex. People of any gender can wear genital clamps. They can be used as a form of sexual pain/pleasure during a BDSM scene or just to increase sensitivity.
How Do Genital Clamps Work?
Genital clamps work by applying pressure to the genitals and restricting blood flow in this area. The wearer feels pleasure when the pressure is applied and again when the genital clamp is removed and pressure is released. Genital clamps can also make parts of the genitals more accessible for stimulation. Genital clamps can be applied to the base of the clitoris, labia, or the skin of the scrotum.
People may apply genital clamps to themselves or to their intimate partners who want to wear them during foreplay. They may apply them in the privacy of their home or wear them out, underneath their clothes, to add a sexy twist to date night.
Which Genital Clamps Should I Buy?
There are a number of different styles of genital clamps. Many of them are spring-loaded metal clips with rubber tips to prevent serious injury. Genital clamps with tension adjusters let you customize the sensations you or a partner feel. Some genital clamps have weighted beads attached which swing to enhance pleasurable sensations.
Battery-powered genital clamps add vibrating sensations to the genitals. Some genital clamps can also be attached to nipple clamps with chains. However, people who are looking to try genital clamps for the first time need not spend a fortune at first. Simple clothes pins can serve the same purpose as commercial genital clamps. Nipple clamps that apply gentle pressure can also double as genital clamps.
If you’re ready to try commercial genital clamps, do your research carefully. Think about the material, weight, and size of the clamp. Smaller, lighter clamps are recommended for newbies, while people more familiar with genital clamps may appreciate the extra stimulation of larger, heavier clamps. Also consider whether you want any extra features, like nipple clamp attachments or batteries for vibration.
Specific genital clamps have different names and nicknames. For example, a clitoris clamp (clit clamp) or labia clamp is a type of genital clamp. They are similar to nipple clamps.
