Being part of a cult ain’t cool, but being a member of the world’s kinkiest subculture is something I wouldn’t change for the world. My experiences with sex and foreplay are book-worthy, and that translates into a keen eye for quality when it comes to toys and accessories. On the other hand, that’s also made me extremely picky about the products I buy because, quite frankly, I’m not into fim-dom (especially not from a sex toy manufacturer). There are only a few brands I trust, but I’ve gotten a little better at branching out and giving some of these new guys a chance. Either way, I keep my standards high because my ability to reach orgasm depends heavily on them.
With that said, I usually pay close attention to what other people are saying about certain products. For instance, I’ve been asking around about better nipple clamps because my partner was finally willing to give them a try and I didn’t want to ruin the experience before it even started. Someone in our so-called “kink support group” mentioned the Pipedream lineup and I was immediately intrigued because that’s one of the brands I prefer. Turns out, they have a set called the Metal Worx Crystal Tip Nipple Clamps and I decided to give them a try. So, were they everything I’d hoped they would be or was my session cut short by too much/too little pain and agony? Well, let me start out by making sure you know what I’m talking about first.
What Are the Metal Worx Magnetic Crystal Tip Nipple Clamps?
The Pipedream brand is well-known for its collection of high-end sex toys, restraints and accessories, and this bad boy is no exception. As the name suggests, the Magnetic Crystal Tip Nipple Clamps are a set of sleek, sexy and sophisticated clamps for male and/or female nipples. By being carefully crafted to send a wide range of sensations to the contact point, these clamps are not only powerful but they’re also attractive to the eye – adding a touch of glam and a dash of kink to any sexual activity. They’re made for people of all experience levels and they’re user-friendly enough for both beginners and professionals. Best of all, these nipple clamps can be used on every skin type regardless of sensitivities and/or allergies because of their high-grade composition.
The Main Features
Made by the Pipedream company, the Metal Worx Nipple Clamps feature numerous components that make them the top-selling sex accessory that they currently are. For starters, they’re made from high-grade stainless steel which means they’re incredibly durable, shiny, and safe – adding to their overall versatility and appearance. They’re also elaborately polished and decorated with sparkling diamante stones, just in case you were wondering how a set of simple clamps can make someone look sexier. Thee bad boys measure 2 inches in total length and can open up to a half inch across too, accommodating almost every nipple size on the planet. Plus, it’s completely magnetic, which means no tiny screws to maneuver and no tight pinching when you get it too tight.
What Comes in the Box?
Many modern-day sex toys come with amazing extras in the box, but that’s not always the case. Some of them are stand-alone products and there’s a good reason for that. Most contemporary manufacturers want to spend all their production money on creating the best possible sex toy. Well, the Pipedream brand is one of them. Their Metal Worx Crystal Tip Nipple Clamps don’t come with a bunch of freebies but they are ready to be used right out of the box. Here’s what you get for the money:
- The stainless-steel nipple clamps
- A luxury, hard-cover travel case
- A instruction manual
What you won’t get in the box are any toy cleaning supplies, so be sure to stock up. And while nipple clamps generally take very little maintenance, sweat and debris can still build up over time. Plus, sharing these devices with multiple partners means keeping things as sterile as possible (especially if someone has a piercing). It’s a small investment but it will make your experience with this product so much better.
When trying out any new sex toy or accessory, I try to be as objective as possible. By that I mean I attempt to hold a solid standard using the same basic criteria, and then I compare each product to those criterium until I can determine it’s overall quality. It’s only fair, plus it’s the only way to be sure you’ll find what you’re looking for. As for my experience with the Pipedream’s Metal Worx Crystal Tip Nipple Clamps, here’s what I think you need to know:
- The Dimensions
When it comes to sex toys and accessories, size is one of the most important factors. Fortunately, the size of these clamps is just right, at least for me and my partner’s bodies. And while they’re not exactly huge, I could still see how some people might find them a tad bit large. Either way, they’re designed in such a way that they can be worn under clothes discreetly and for long periods of time. So for me and my partner, the dimensions were on par with what we wanted to see and feel while wearing them.
- The Materials
I haven’t seen many plastic nipple clamps in my day, but I’m sure they’re out there. Manufacturers regularly craft these items out of skin-safe metals because that’s what makes the most sense and I agree. The Crystal Clamps are not only made out of hypoallergenic stainless-steel but they also have the cutest little rhinestone on the outer tip of each magnetic bar. Put simply, they’re both safe AND sexy and it doesn’t get any better than that. Did I mention how shiny my clamps were when I got them out of the box? They looked just like jewelry, which in turn helped me convince my partner to put them on.
- The Sensations
Nipple clamps are already some of the most intense sex accessories in the industry, but that doesn’t mean they’re all made the same. The MW Clamps are an outstand product in my book because they provide a great sensation without deviating at any point due to sweat, nipple contraction or otherwise. The magnetism of the connective bars keeps things very constant throughout the experience, allowing me and/or my partner to concentrate our efforts on other things besides making adjustments. Anyway, the sensations were pretty intense considering the continual attraction between magnets, so I’m not sure I would recommend this product to newbies unless they’re ready for some serious action.
- The Functionality
One thing here: Nipple clamps that aren’t adjustable are certainly not for everybody because they cut out the “tolerance level” middleman. However, they do make things much easier on the wearer and applier because they stay put rather nicely and require no manual adjustments to the tension. Be careful, though, because all magnetic clamps can slip off if you move them around too much. Fortunately, this set has a small ring that protects the integrity of the magnetism as well as the positioning of the clamp, so slippage is rare and usually doesn’t hurt when it happens.
The Ups and Downs
My experience with nipple clamps has afforded me the type of opinion which always seems to point me (and my partners) in the right direction. I understand that no perfect pleasure product exists. But, if a toy or accessory is right for your intended purposes, body type and budget, then there’s no reason why it can’t be a smart purchase. The point is to look at all the pros and cons before buying anything to make sure it has all the things you need and none of the things you don’t. When it comes to the MW Crystal Clamps, here are the things I think you need to know before spending any money:
- Magnetic for continual pressure
- Ideal for all parts of the body
- Sturdy storage container included, perfect for gifting
- Attractive detailing for superior beauty
- Makes a great nipple piercing alternative
- Good for all experience levels
- Made from skin-safe materials
- Cannot adjust the pressure
- May not be suitable for all users
Personally, I prefer magnetic nipple rings simple because they provide a firm and steady stream of pressure while allowing for quick and painless removal. When applied right, they’re comfortable enough to be worn all day and/or night, plus they make the wearer’s chest look 300% better in an instant. Overall, the Pipedream Crystal Tip Metal Worx Nipple Clamps make swifty kink a sexy cinch. In other words, they’re easy to put on and take off, they’re good looking, and they provide enough pressure to increase eroticism on the spot. I would recommend them to newbies and pros alike, not to mention anyone who enjoys constant, intense pressure on their nipples. However, that same perk may be the deal breaker for some users because there’s no way to adjust these bad boys even if you try.
