Product Review: Y-Style Beaded Clamps by Spartacus Enterprises

June 4th, 2010

Ooo, what’s that?

That, my fellow kinksters, is a set of Y-Style Beaded Clamps by Spartacus Enterprises.  Notice the clamps are tweezer clamps, which makes these great for just about anyone.

How’s it made?

These clamps are made of purple and black Indian beads and metal, with rubbery black tips on the three tweezer-like clamps.  There are three strands of beads threaded onto silver jewelry wire and connected with small key-rings.  The strands that are intended for the nipples are each eight and three-quarters inches long (including the clamps, not including the key rings), and the strand intended for the clit is about thirteen and three-quarters inches long, giving the entire set a length of about twenty-two and three quarters inches.

Around the clamps is a small metal ring.  This is used to close the clamps and adjust the tightness of the pinch.

What’s it for?

Decoration, mostly.  The two shorter strands attach to your nipples, and the longer strand attaches to your clit.

While these clamps do pinch some, it’s not too terribly painful.  The bead strands seem strong enough to be able to tug on the clamps, but it really doesn’t change the sensation much.  And they’re fully adjustable from “light squeeze” to “tight pinch”, though tight pinch is far less than the sensation provided by clovers, or even alligator style clamps.

These clamps are great for beginners or people who are into light to intermediate nipple play. 

How is it?

Pros: Cons:
key ring connectors
beautiful color purple
great for beginners
skin guards slide off easily
not a strong squeeze
not suited for my body type

Well… They are beautiful, I’ll give them that.  And it’s pretty cool that the strands are attached by key rings.  That means you can take this toy completely apart if the desire strikes.

Not really into clit clamps, but don’t really want to destroy the look by having a random clamp hanging around? No problem.  Just disconnect the strand from the ones intended for nipples and you’re good to go.

However, if you adjust them too tight (or what’s “too tight” for the clamps), the metal slides right out of the skin guards when you tug on the beads, making these far more functional for decoration than pain play.  Which is fine, if that’s what you’re looking for.  But I want a set that looks nice and hurts like the dickens, you know?

I’m also not too fond of how this set looks on me.  I’m not a skinny twenty-something, with perky boobs and a flat stomach.  My boobs sag, and my stomach is lumpy.  So instead of stretching the length of my torso and looking sexy, this set sags and loops, and looks… Well, like a frumpy thirty-something housewife who’s trying too hard.  Maybe if they were shorter, they’d look better? Who knows?

I have been known to use these without the skin guards a time or two.  It’s not recommended, and it is painful.  But tweezer clamps just don’t provide enough pinch for this painslut, so I figured I’d take the chance.  So far, I haven’t done any damage to myself or the toy.  But once again, this is not recommended use for these clamps.

Anything else I should know?

Storing tweezer clamps closed could result in the metal poking through the skin guards long before their time, so make sure you open them up before you put them away.  Soap and water is just fine for cleaning this set.  And feel free to drop them in your toy drawer with your other clamps.
