The Metal Worx Magnetic Nipple Clamps by Pipedream are a set of two circular steel clamps, accented with faux diamonds on the ends of each miniature magnetized “handle”. They are cast in high-quality steel and hand-polished to a glossy, almost mirror-like shine. The flared handle allow easy opening of the magnets. Simply pull them apart, press the circular ring around the nipple, capturing it between the bars, and slowly release.The portions that come into contact with the nipple feel smooth and seamless.
These and every other item in the Metal Worx line comes in a latching case that you can use to store your toys after use. Opening the case reveals the item(s) cradled in a sparkly, black foam nest. The foam is easily removable, making this case perfect for storing other items as well. Since purchasing these clamps, the box has now become the home for my three other sets of clamps…they fit perfectly!
I find these clamps to be absolutely beautiful. They accent and frame the nipples wonderfully, with a little bit of sparkle and shine. From one gem to another, the clamps are just over 2″ wide, while the ring itself is 1″ in diameter. The two little magnetized bars that grip the nipple are 1/2″ long. If your nipples are any thicker than 1/2″ , these clamps may be fairly uncomfortable as the edges of the bars may dig in. People with nipples that are very small may also find these to be more intense. When the clamps have a larger surface area to press on, the sensation is distributed more. With small nipples, the pressure is concentrated. Since these are not adjustable, it is a good idea to take the size and sensitivity of your or your partner’s nipples into consideration.
Pipedreams says that “they won’t fall off when the action heats up”, but that depends on what action you’re referring to. For example, lying flat on your back will not put as much gravitational pull on the clamps as leaning forward will. Surprisingly however, they do stay on very well. With a lot of bouncing and jostling they may slip off bit by bit, which could be a more intense process (going back to that rule that says the smaller the surface area, the more concentrated the pressure!), but this is not necessarily a bad thing!
Cleanup is a breeze. Stainless steel is cool, nonporous, and easy to clean. They are waterproof and, obviously, latex- and phthalate-free, with no taste or odor to them –making them an ideal body-safe material. A simple rinse with a mild soap and warm water will leave your clamps clean and shiny. Avoid abrasive cleansers to prevent scratching. While they could be sterilized with a 10% bleach solution spray, it wouldn’t be recommended to boil them or run them through the dishwasher as the gems on the ends may detach.
