Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps
This review contains affiliate links and photos that are not safe for work (NSFW).
My first pair of nipple clamps is from Pipedream‘s Metal Worx line. This toy arrives in a small, hard case that I think is pretty classy. There are sticker labels on the top and bottom of the case, so it’s obvious what’s inside, but there are no models on the packaging, and the labels are easy to remove for the sake of discretion. A logo image appears on the lid of the case underneath the sticker label.
The closure is solid, easy to operate, isn’t loose and doesn’t wiggle, and definitely is strong enough to hold the case closed. The metal accents give the case an industrial look.
The case contains a removable block of foam with two cutouts that hold the nipple clamps. Cutting down the foam would create a space for storing other small objects – additional pairs of nipple clamps, for example. Because I have only one pair, I’m storing extra batteries underneath the foam.
Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps are attractive in silver and feature four clear or white decorative crystals to provide some sparkle. At this point, I have minor concerns. First, I’m not certain about the material. Pipedream lists the material as “Steel,” which I don’t doubt is possible. I’m not an expert and don’t know how to test the material to determine that it’s steel. The clamps do jingle with a metallic sound. They don’t feel as heavy as I imagined they would. However, they are small, and I have to say that the clamps feel heavier when I’m wearing them. I don’t know why. Perhaps the additional perceived weight is a result of my nipple sensitivity, the small surface area of my nipples, the size of my breasts, or the pull of gravity. I have no idea and can only guess. The magnets attract only to themselves, so if these nipple clamps are steel, then they might be made of stainless steel, and I can’t test the material based on magnetism alone because some stainless steels aren’t magnetic. A friend of mine has a nickel allergy. She even covers the back of her watch because it irritates her skin. She’s careful that jewelry she wears is not plated because plated metals might cause her to experience an allergic skin reaction. I’ve noticed that my nipple clamps scratch very easily (and after only a handful of uses).
I’ve also noticed that there was some kind of film peeling off near the crystals, but the surface underneath isn’t damaged, so I think it’s just residual glue. I’m going to take Pipedream’s word for it that the material is steel. My fiancé assures me that they’re made of steel, and he would know better than I do, so I’ll trust his judgement as well. Overall, however, I would recommend doing some research before buying Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps. I don’t know if I can recommend these clamps for everyone because I believe there’s a chance that they’re plated. Although I have very sensitive skin, I have not experienced any skin irritation as a result of wearing these clamps, but someone even more sensitive than me – like my allergic friend – might. If these clamps cause skin irritation, discontinue wearing them.
My second complaint about Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps is purely cosmetic. I don’t like the lack of sparkle in the decorative crystals. They don’t catch the light and glisten enough.
I would love to see Pipedream use Swarovski Elements crystals instead, but I know these clamps would cost more if they did.
I wanted to try these nipple clamps first because I thought that a pair of magnetic clamps would be gentle and easy for a beginner to use. Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps are gentle. In fact, I’d recommend wearing them for a short period of time to get the best results. I like to wear them during sex or masturbation essentially for an entire session of about 20-30 minutes. They don’t pinch much at first, but after a few minutes, I start to feel increased sensitivity and pressure. After only about five minutes, I start to notice how hard the clamps keep my nipples. After about ten minutes, I begin to feel the pinch. My nipples are slightly darker at this point, but there isn’t a significant change in color yet. As I approach 25 minutes, the clamps really are pinching now. My nipples are noticeably darker with purplish areas. The clamps continue to pinch and actually squeeze tightly enough to leave small indentations in the sides of my nipples after I take them off. I was curious to see how long I could wear the clamps and recently tested my limits. My longest experience wearing them was about 45 minutes, which I think is a bit too long for me. By the time I took the clamps off, the pinch was definitely painful, and I had purple areas on my nipples. I still recommend them for beginners because the pinch increases gradually, and it took all that time to become too uncomfortable for me to continue wearing them. They always eventually become too painful, so I can’t wear them all day, but they definitely work. After I removed the clamps, the pinch continued to last for several minutes during which my nipples stayed erect and sensitive.
These clamps are slightly fiddly. They definitely take two hands to put on in order to keep the magnets apart. If a clamp prematurely snaps shut and catches the tip of a nipple, it’s a bit painful like when my fiancé bites them too hard. It’s easier for me to put on these clamps myself instead of having my fiancé put them on me.
We even tried using these nipple clamps for temperature play. I put the clamps in the refrigerator for a while and told my fiancé that there was a surprise for him in the fridge. They were definitely cold to the touch at first, but they didn’t hold that temperature, which was disappointing. The only noticeable sensation before long was the gradually increasing pinch.
Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps will work best for people who have more protruding nipples. Ideally, the nipple should poke all the way through the ring.
I have large breasts that bounce around during sex, and even with somewhat protruding nipples while wearing the clamps properly, the bouncing drove the clamps closer to the tips of my nipples, and they slipped off. The magnets snapped shut with a sharp pinch that left a small, red dot about the size of a pencil point on the tip of my nipple for a couple of days. It didn’t hurt for more than a few minutes.
Finally, I have to say that – in spite of my rating – I like my Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps. They ended up being a good buy, and I’m glad I shopped around for the best price and waited for a sale. I like the price I paid for what I received, the magnets are strong enough, and the clamps work as described and expected. I’m happy with them. I can’t recommend Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps for everyone because they won’t work for every body type.
