Ooo, what’s that?

Come on, man1! You know that’s a set of clover clamps!

They’re the Sterling Monarch Nipple Vice Clamps from XR Brands, and can I just say that we’ve never in our lives owned such a sturdy pair of clamps?

How’s it made?

The clamps are made of metal and they’re each about 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. The chain that connects them is about 12 inches long, giving them an overall length of 19 inches. They’re stronger than most clamps and the protective pads are more grabby. But the best part is you can tuck them in a purse, or an overnight bag and none would be the wiser…except that nosy TSA agent who knows damn well it’s not a bomb.

What’s it for?

Nipple torture, mostly. Some use these clamps on their genitals as well.

I may or may not be the type of girl who puts a clover clamp on her clit when she’s so deep in play that pain is just a concept. I would suggest doing that at your own risk. Clovers are probably the tightest sex-related clamp you can buy, and they’re made in a way that allows them to tighten when you pull on the chain. That means they hurt.

How is it?

I’ll let you know

We’ve owned a lot of clover clamps in our day. A LOT. I think this set is our tenth one? Who knows? We’ve had clamps with a chain, and clamps without a chain. Clamps from that vegan BDSM set called Fresh that has been discontinued (we still have those). Clamps from Pipedream’s Fetish Fantasy line (yeah, yeah…they were slightly less publicly gross back then). Clamps that we’re not really sure where they came from. Clover clamps is kinda our thing.

Which is funny because once upon a time, I would scream and beg for M to take them off the second he put them on. Which is to say that clover clamps take some getting used to, and these are no different.

But!

These are, hands down, the best clovers we’ve ever owned. I’m feeling really ridiculous because I feel like I should be able to say more than that, rave more than that, but I think that’s the best way to put it.

Other clamps we’ve owned have been flimsy and have bent easily. Or the chain is flimsy. Or the protective pads come out pretty quickly. Or they don’t stay on–and let me tell you, a clover falling off or being pulled off is…you might as well just chop your nipples off. It’ll hurt less.

We’re not having any of these problems with the Sterling Monarch Nipple Vice set. They stay where you put them no matter how hard you pull on the chain. They don’t bend. The pads feel sturdy. They really are the best set we’ve ever owned.

Anything else I should know?

Ease into these. Seriously. Initial use is gonna be painful. It might even be too much for you to handle at first. Take ’em off and try again on another day.

You really shouldn’t wear any clamps on any body part for more than 20 minutes, as they can cause nerve damage. And since these go on your most sensitive bits, nerve damage would be a damn shame. Some of us more seasoned kinksters have been known to ignore that rule, and obviously, you’re welcome to do the same. But I’d go with the whole easing into it thing, and pay attention to your body before making that decision. Risk Aware Consensual Kink, and all that jazz.

Where’d ya get it?

    I had a pair of these things and I gave them away. I enjoy nipple play but these were too painful.
