Pussy Clamp Buyer’s Guide

Because That Vagina Ain’t Gonna Spread Itself.

Pussy clamps aren’t usually a device that gets much attention in the mainstream and I’m really not sure why. When most people hear the words “sex toys,” they immediately think of dildos, vibrators and butt plugs. And while I can sort of understand where that comes from, it’s a shame that more perverts don’t know about all the options available to them. I, for one, didn’t even know about pussy clamps until several years after I becoming sexually active. As a finally well-rounded adult with a healthy love life, I know rely on pussy clamps to do many of the things that I only dreamed of doing before. Best of all, my partner(s) love when I use pussy clamps too.

Unlike other types of sex toys and BDSM tools, pussy clamps are timeless, tasteful and tantalizing all at the same time. I’ve only met one person in my entire life who didn’t like what a pussy clamp looked and felt like. And I’m not saying any names here, but “Gina” had no idea what she was doing and her partner wasn’t any better at it either. She was clueless about how to put one on, how to adjust the tightness and how to take it off, let along using it in conjunction with other sex toys and/or roleplaying games. I think expecting her or her partner to enjoy all a pussy clamp has to offer is asking a bit much. After all, neither one of them ever read the instructions.

Of course, even some of the manuals that come with today’s best pussy clamps are relatively difficult to understand (if you’re a circus ape). In general, though, nipple and pussy clamping devices are all made about the same, with similar functionalities and features. Figuring this one out isn’t rocket science, Gina, but I digress. A properly used pussy clamp is safe, sexy and oh so satisfying, but you can only enjoy those perks if you get the education that your teachers failed to give you back in high school Sex Ed. I have a ton of sex toys I could be falling asleep on, but instead I chose to spend my time giving you some real-world guidance from someone who knows. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

In this buyer’s guide you will learn what a pussy clamp is (and isn’t). You’ll also be introduced to the main causes of this product’s global popularity. After that, I’ll give you some pointers on how to find the right device for yourself or your partner(s). Once that’s done, I’ll show you three of the best products on the market today. So strap into your seats and get ready to earn your PhD in pussy clamps. You’re a gentleman and a scholar, sir.

What Is a Pussy Clamp?

When I was first introduced to pussy clamps and genital torture I was naturally intimidated. But, once I found out how simple and potentially pleasurable pussy clamping was, I opened my mind, my heart and my legs for a little experimentation. A traditional pussy clamp is just a secure fastening device that fits snugly over the vagina. It can either hold together or pull apart the flaps and folds of your genital region, leaving your opening and clitoris fully exposed. Pussy clamps are commonly used in BDSM bedrooms and dungeons around the world, but their relatively user-friendly design has made them more mainstream in the last few decades.

Modern-day pussy clamps are made from a wide variety of materials, with various shapes, colors and components as well. And while many of them function in a unique way, the overall purpose of using a pussy clamp is to apply inward pressure to the wearer’s naughty bits. These sleek and sexy tools can be used by anyone despite their skin or body type, plus they can be used intermittently with other sex toys, worn long-term under clothes, paired with alternative restriction devices and locked to ensure the perfect position or view for however long you want it. So although a majority of people assume that pussy clamps are just for folks who enjoy pain, that’s just not the case at all.

In fact, today’s best pussy clamps come with a bunch of comfort features for those who like to play with sub/dom relationships while not enduring or inflicting as much discomfort. Things like removeable clamp covers, adjustable chains, and customizable bite strengths help newbies become more accustomed to a practice that has been celebrated since ancient times – pussy clamping like a pro. So, what makes this stuff so appealing and why should you jump on the bandwagon? I thought you’d never ask.

Why a Pussy Clamp Though?

Some might be reading the definition of a pussy clamp and be thinking, “Why on Earth would anyone ever want to use one of those things?” Still others might read the information and think to themselves, “This is exactly what I’ve been looking for.” Granted, pussy clamps are not a sex toy that’s made for everyone, but anyone who enjoys high-quality BDSM will know exactly what I’m talking about when I say that these things are amazing. In fact, the average user typically benefits from a pussy clamp in the following 5 ways:

  • Pussy Clamps Can Improve the Appearance of the Vagina 

With the right pussy clamps, you can enhance what the vagina looks like. Some clamps actually spread the inner and outer labial folds apart to expose the opening and canal – a beautiful view for anyone who enjoys vaginal voyeurism and/or controlled stimulation. With polished chains and high-end hardware, the glistening metal of a high-end pussy clamp sparkles against the skin to create an exotic appearance that’s extremely pleasing to the eye no matter what body type is wearing it.

  • Pussy Clamps Can Increase Arousal 

Whether it’s because you enjoy looking at an exposed vagina or simply like having that kind of control, a well-made pussy clamp can increase arousal for both the wearer at the perverted voyeur in the room. On top of that, the intense yet customizable sensations provided by the clamp itself are enough to make most women squirm with pleasure. Use it right and everyone gets a piece of the pie.

  • Pussy Clamps Can Enhance Orgasm 

When arousal is at its peak and all sex toys in play are functioning properly, orgasms tend to be a lot more extreme. The full-bodied stimulation is surprising from such a cute and compact device, but since it’s attached securely to one of your most sensitive erogenous zones, it makes perfect sense that a good clamping device would revolutionize the way you enjoy sex and/or masturbation. And as we all know, partners typically respond positively when their lovers are having a great time.

  • Pussy Clamps Can Provide Better Control for the Dom 

Keeping your sub in position is already hard enough without ropes, swings and other contraptions. But even when you have your sub where you want her, keeping that pussy open and ready is a pain in the ass. I find that pussy clamps make it easier for me to dominate effectively, patiently and professionally without having to integrate more complex/expensive mechanisms. It’s a money saver for sure, but more than that it’s reputation insurance as well.

  • Pussy Clamps Embody the 3 S’s: Safe, Sexy and Satisfying

High-quality pussy clamps are safe because they’re made from industry standard materials under strict manufacturing guidelines. They often have additional safety features too. They’re sexy because they not only provide a service but they also look good too. And all of that makes these sex toys one of the most satisfying products on the modern-day market. No wonder they’ve been around for so long, and no wonder they’re not going anywhere soon.

Knowing what a pussy clamp is and understanding why people use them is only the start. Marketers already know what you know, and they’re ready and willing to use that against you. But as it is with every sex toy purchase, pussy clamp ownership is a very personal thing. No amount of clever advertising can pinpoint exactly what you need. The only way to determine which one is right for you is to “know thyself” better than anyone else. Also, you might want to take a look at the stuff I’ve jotted down for you next.

The Top 7 Ways to Tell If That Pussy Clamp Is Worth It or Not

Because pussy clamps are a relatively simple product, many people mistakenly assume that picking one out is easy. That’s not only incorrect but also dangerous. Since your pussy clamps will be attached securely to one of the most sensitive spots on the body, it’s important to diligently shop for the best one. When side by side, it’s not too hard to tell the difference between a good clamp and a bad one. But when you’re up against an entire industry and you don’t know what to look for, those clever marketing schemes used by today’s sex toy manufacturers could have you hemmed up in no time.

Save yourself some time, money and street cred by using the following 7 guidelines to determine whether that pussy clamp in your shopping cart is worth it or not:

  • The Size 

The size of any sex toy is extremely crucial, and pussy clamps are no exception despite the fact that most of them are adjustable. Make sure the size of your pussy clamp not only matches with the size of you and/or your partner’s vagina but that it also suits their body type as well. Today’s best pussy clamps come in a wide variety of lengths, so make sure the one you buy can accommodate the sort of squeeze or control you’re looking for. Also keep in mind that the wearer is bound to move around, so if the clamps feature clasps for nipples or other body parts, measure the total size to avoid injury or damage to your toy.

  • The Materials 

Not all pussy clamps are made out of the same materials. I recently reviewed a pussy/nipple clamp combo that I thought was extremely awesome and then later found out that it contained phthalates (a chemical that’s been proven about a billion times to be harmful to the human body). Since you can’t use condoms with pussy clamps to protect your skin, it’s dangerous to play games with your health like that. Always pay attention to the material your clamps and chains are made out of. Stay away from phthalates and parabens in exchange for more skin-safe options such as silicone, stainless-steel, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) or a material patented exclusively by a sex toy brand.

  • The Clasp Strength 

Each set of pussy clamps will feature clasps with varying squeeze strengths. Find the one that offers the kind of gentle pressure or extreme pinch that you and/or your partner(s) are looking for. To do this, determine how the clasps are pulled apart and pushed together. Is it a screw-like apparatus, a knob, a series of holes or something else? Do you even know how to use it properly so that you can enjoy the strength it offers without hurting anybody? How much pleasure or pain are you trying to endure or provide? Be sure the pussy clamps you buy can get the job done or else you’ll be one sorry SOB.

  • The Adjustability 

Fortunately, a majority of today’s best pussy clamps have clasps and/or chains that are fully adjustable. However, the amount that they can adjust varies widely. It’s important to not only find out the total length of the chain but to also determine how large or small the apparatus can go. Adjustable pussy clamps are much easier to use than rigid ones, although they may not provide the kind of restriction you require. There are also chain-free pussy clamps available, but those are somewhat difficult to manage because they’re small and easy to lose.

  • The Appearance 

One of the most appealing things about a pussy clamp is its ability to enhance the appearance of the vagina. When worn correctly and enjoyed fully by the participants, pussy clamps can increase arousal and improve the quality of your orgasm while boosting your good looks (just like we talked about earlier). But because it can and will do all those things, it’s important to make sure the product looks good while it’s on. So whether examining the materials, the extra features or the execution thereof, the appearance of your pussy clamps should never be ignored.

  • The Durability 

It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about a car, a pair of jeans or a sex toy, the durability of it is extremely crucial to the experience you have with it. Pussy and nipple clamping devices are no different. In fact, it’s especially important for your pussy clamps to be extra durable against movement and attempted removal. Your best bet is to select some pussy clamps that are made out of high-grade, heavy-duty materials with exceptional construction. Those cheaply made products may not cost very much upfront, but they could end up costing you your relationship. Well-made stuff seldom does that.

  • The Compatibility 

Did you know that some pussy clamps are compatible with other BDSM sex tools? Many of the luxury-grade models feature conveniently placed, adjustable O-rings where you can hang weights or attach restrictive toys for even more control. If this is a feature you’re interested in, make sure the pussy clamps you choose have the user-friendly components you need to make those dirty little fantasies come true. Keep in mind, however, that even pussy clamps with O-rings can be used with certain types of sex toys (not just BDSM tools).

Honestly, I tried not being this picky about my pussy clamp selection but then I learned how wrong I was for that the hard way. Sex toy purchases are an extremely personal decision, which means there are a lot of things to take into consideration before handing over any money. And unfortunately, knowing the top 7 things to look at and/or consider is only the beginning. You’ll also need a few worthy suggestions to get you started. After all, how else are you going to know what the industry standards are? No worries; I’ve got you covered.

The Three Kings: My Favorite Pussy Clamps

I probably don’t have to tell you this, but the modern-day sex toy market is flooded with options for the average BDSM lover. Even when it comes to specialized products like pussy and nipple clamps, the number of choices available can make anyone feel faint and frustrated. I won’t stand here and tell you that I’ve tried every single pussy clamp there is. What I will tell you, though, is that the following three models have outperformed all the ones I have. On top of that, they’re considered by me (and most of my colleagues) to be the cream of the entire crop.

BEST OVERALL: The Fifty Shades Freed “All Sensation” Nipple and Clitoral Chain Combo

The look, the feel, the functionality – all of it is on par with the most luxurious pussy clamp you’ll ever have the privilege of using. The Fifty Shades of Freed “All Sensation” Nipple and Clitoral Clamp Combo is downright divine, with an adjustable 27.5-inch polished metal chain that clamps both the nipples and the clit t adjustable strengths. The silicone-tipped clasps are easy to apply and remove, and the whole shebang comes in a sexy, sophisticated storage bag for enhanced discretion. Using mini O-rings, this highly compatible sex toy opens the door for additional weight and restraint with other accessories.

PRO: This one uses a slide-to-fit design for a better fit and an improved feel, plus each clamp has little dangly balls for extra decoration.

CON: The chain isn’t very durable compared to some of the other options on this list.

BEST FOR BEGINNERS: The Entice Nipple and Clit Clamps with Chain (and O-Ring)

Ideal for people who enjoy customizable BDSM and perfect for folks who are new to the whole pussy clamping thing, the Entice Nipple and Clit Clamps come with a sexily polished metal chain that measures 25 inches in total length for easy adjustments on the fly. Each of the three clips can be adjusted as well, and the unique role gold finish compliments any other metal sex toy you may be using. Made from a skin-safe, non-tarnish nickel free metal, these bad boys even feature removable comfort pads on each of the clamps so that they can be worn all day and night or as the dominant sees fit.

PRO: Not only does this product feel good when used properly, but it also looks good on almost every skin tone too.

CON: The somewhat limited chain length may not be suitable for all body types or roleplaying positions.

BEST FOR EXPERTS: The Extreme Restraints Stainless-Steel Pussy Clamp

Made from industry-standard, skin-safe stainless-steel (lots of hyphens there, sorry), this sturdy and durable little number fits snugly over the vaginal opening and clitoris to spread the inner and outer labia wide open for easier access. Perfect for expert BDSM enthusiasts, this thing is fully adjustable with a twist of the thumbscrews on either side. Choose between light or tight and you serve that sub right with the Stainless-Steel Pussy Clamp by Extreme Restraints. Tickle, tease and torment your partner like never before with this clamp that measures 3.3 inches in total length, 1.15 inches in total diameter and features a relatively lightweight design to prevent slipping, stretching and injury.

PRO: Each hypoallergenic clamp opens up to a generous 1.25 inches in width, making this toy ideal for all sorts of body types.

CON: The balls on the ends of the screws can come off if you’re not careful to tighten them back up after every use.

The End Game

I understand that this shopping trip is more complicated that the one you went on for the last house you bought, but that property never made you and/or your partner cum, so there’s that. If our major investments were the only things that deserved our full attention, then everything else in the world would essentially be trash. Do you honestly think your favorite sex toys are garbage? I didn’t think so. That’s why it’s important for consumers like us to be picky like this. Manufacturers will only produce what we will buy, so raise the bar on them and you’ll start getting better options. For now, we’ve got to take what’s available to us. But as long as the pussy clamps we choose provide a safe and satisfying sexual experience for us and/or our partners (hopefully more than once), that’s all that matters. Please be diligent out there, boys and girls. There may be sharks in the water, but your jaws are lot more intimidating (and far sexier too).
