Reviews of the 5 best butterfly nipple clamps
Test Winner Spartacus Butterfly Style Endurance Clamp
First up is the Spartacus Butterfly Style Endurance Clamp!
This toy features two butterfly nipple clamps connected by a chain for all-in-one fun. Made primarily of metal and complete with silicone tips, these clamps are ready to use from the second they arrive.
Unlike more beginner-friendly options, this butterfly nipple clamp isn’t forgiving. Still, if the regular pressure just isn’t enough, you can also give the chain a quick yank for some added stimulation!
Easy to use and extremely affordable, these clamps are a great buy if you’re looking to upgrade from your current, less intense clamps!
- ✅ Affordable
- ✅ Silicone tipped
- ✅ Easy to clean
- ✅ Lightweight
- ❌ Made of an undisclosed metal
- ❌ Only one chain size offered
I dubbed these butterfly nipple clamps as the “Test Winner” of this list for a few different reasons. For starters, they’re extremely affordable, costing less than $30 while still offering a quality experience.
I liked the fact that each butterfly nipple clamp is tipped with silicone. However, it would be nice if they disclosed the type of metal used (although they do mention it’s nickel-free!).
They’ve received generally positive customer feedback, with everyone mentioning that they’re a great option for more experienced users.
That said, these clamps aren’t a good option for beginners. Like all the other butterfly nipple clamps on this list, these clamps offer a non-forgiving grip, making them best for the truly masochistic.
If that sounds like you & you want to enjoy some truly satisfying clamps on a budget, I’d definitely recommend picking up the Spartacus Butterfly Style Endurance Clamp!
You should buy the Spartacus Butterfly Style Endurance Clamp if you...
- Have used nipple clamps before
- Want intense sensations
- Love the all-metal look
You should not buy the Spartacus Butterfly Style Endurance Clamp if you...
- Prefer metal-tipped clamps
- Also want a labia clamp
- Want something adjustable
Cheapest Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps
Next up are the Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps, an intense set of butterfly nipple clamps that’s perfect for anyone after an intense experience!
Made of metal, tipped with rubber, and connected by a chain, these non-adjustable clamps get the job done without wasting any effort on aesthetics.
Each butterfly nipple clamp has an industrial look to it, making it a great option for those who prefer a more rugged BDSM look.
Easy to use and staying firmly in place once attached, the Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps are the perfect option for intense nipple play lovers on a budget!
- ✅ Very grippy
- ✅ Intense pinch
- ✅ Affordable
- ✅ Rubber tipped
- ❌ Cheap packaging
- ❌ Metal type not disclosed
- ❌ No storage bag included
As noted by one of our testers, these butterfly nipple clamps are quite intense. For this reason, I definitely don’t recommend them to beginners or even to some intermediate nipple play lovers: they’re simply too much!
However, those who are more experienced or who have high pain tolerances will definitely love these. While they might not be the prettiest option around, each butterfly nipple clamp packs quite a bite that is sure to drive you wild!
You won’t run into any issues with these slipping, as—in addition to their tight grip—these tipped clamps feature bumps for additional grip.
The only real downside with these clamps is the complete lack of transparency. Bondage Boutique doesn’t disclose the type of metal used, nor do they say if the rubber is phthalate-free.
Still, if you don’t have any metal allergies, are willing to risk phthalate exposure, and just want an intense experience on a budget, the Bondage Boutique Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps
are a tempting offer that may be worth looking into!
You should buy the Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps if you...
- Are experienced with nipple play
- Need a budget-friendly option
- Have a high pain tolerance
You should not buy the Squeeze and Tease Nipple Clamps if you...
- Need adjustability
- Prefer high-quality toys
- Have sensitive nipples
Beaded Chain Black Butterfly Nipple Clamps with Beaded Chain
The Black Butterfly Nipple Clamps with Beaded Chain are unlike any other butterfly nipple clamps on this list. While most clamps opt for a simple silver coloring, these clamps have decided to do things a little bit differently.
Each butterfly nipple clamp is black, rather than silver, complete with a white silicone tip.
The two clamps are connected via a gold-colored chain that’s adorned with faux black gems, adding a sense of luxury to the set overall.
Don’t worry, though. These clamps haven’t sacrificed performance for pretty aesthetics; they still pack quite a pinch!
If you’re the type of person who wants the appearance of a toy to match up with its appearance then the Black Butterfly Clamps could be a great option for you!
- ✅ Black clamps
- ✅ Gold-colored chain
- ✅ Silicone tips
- ✅ Easy to use
- ❌ Metal type not disclosed
- ❌ Slightly more expensive
Being the only butterfly nipple clamps with a beaded chain, these clamps easily earn the “Beaded Chain” mention. However, while it’s great if a toy looks good, that doesn’t matter much if it performs poorly.
Fortunately, overall feedback for this toy has been positive. Of course, these clamps aren’t meant for beginners, so those new to nipple play will want to avoid them at all costs.
However, for the more experienced, each butterfly nipple clamp has a lot of potential. Clamping tightly by default and providing even more pinch with the tug of a chain, the Black Butterfly Nipple Clamps could be just what you’ve been looking for.
In summary, I would definitely recommend these clamps, but only if you’re willing to pay a bit more for the aesthetics. Performance-wise, they’re essentially on par with the other options I’ve mentioned, making appearances their primary appeal.
You should buy the Black Butterfly Nipple Clamps with Beaded Chain if you...
- Want a pretty set of nipple clamps
- Like the non-traditional coloring
- Prefer silicone tips
You should not buy the Black Butterfly Nipple Clamps with Beaded Chain if you...
- Need the cheapest option possible
- Want metal tips
- Prefer a longer chain
Extreme Tit Tuggers
If you’re hoping to find the most intense butterfly nipple clamps around then the Tit Tuggers are the ones for you!
Building on the regular clover clamp design, each Tugger features an adjustable metal arch that’s attached to the butterfly nipple clamp.
This unique design allows the toy to clamp and pull on your nipple, rather than simply pinching like a regular clamp.
Despite looking somewhat complicated, these toys are extremely easy to use, adjusted with a simple wing nut.
For those willing and able to give them a try, the Tit Tuggers could be the perfect erotic and intense challenge you’ve been lusting for!
- ✅ Perfect for nipple stretching
- ✅ Unique design
- ✅ Two toys in one
- ✅ Easy to use
- ❌ Expensive
- ❌ Can’t be used with chains
- ❌ Nickel-plated
It should be fairly obvious why the Tit Tuggers won the “Extreme” mention: they’re intense! By themselves, clover clamps can already be too much for those with less experience in nipple play.
However, by adding a tugging effect on top of the intense pinch of a clover clamp, the Tit Tuggers manage to make things much more intense with only a tiny change.
In my opinion, these are priced way too high. While it’s true that they offer a unique design, the additional parts don’t add $100 worth of metal to the item. Not to mention that the metal itself is nickel-plated!
That said, you won’t find any other toy quite like the Tit Tuggers. So, should you buy them? Well, if you’re looking for the most extreme experience possible and willing to pay the upcharge, then I’d say “go for it”. Otherwise, regular clover clamps and a manual tug should suffice!
You should buy the Tit Tuggers if you...
- Are tired of regular clamps
- Don’t mind paying a premium price
- Want the most intense nipple play
You should not buy the Tit Tuggers if you...
- Are allergic to nickel
- Need an under-the-shirt toy
- Have a limited budget
Dark Amour Metal Nipple Clamps
Last but not least are the Dark Amour Metal Nipple Clamps!
These basic butterfly nipple clamps are extremely budget-friendly, costing less than $20 for both clamps. Unlike other options that come with a chain, these clamps only feature O-rings instead.
As such, you can attach your own chain to each butterfly nipple clamp, easily switching them out for weights if desired.
Besides lowering the overall cost, this also makes these Dark Amour Clamps more versatile, which is a selling point for some people.
If you’re looking for the most versatile and affordable option, it’s hard to go wrong with these Metal Nipple Clamps from Dark Amour!
- ✅ Budget-friendly
- ✅ Easy to use
- ✅ Fitted with O-rings
- ✅ Made of iron
- ❌ Doesn’t include chain
- ❌ Plain design
The main selling point of these butterfly nipple clamps is also their main weakness. Costing less than $20, these clamps are extremely affordable.
However, since they lack a chain, you’ll either have to use each butterfly nipple clamp on its own or find attachments yourself. If you don’t already have one, this can be a pain.
On the plus side, you won’t have to cut anything off if you want to switch chains (like you may have to with other clamps).
Aside from this, there isn’t too much to say about these clamps. Made of iron and tipped with rubber, they’re fairly basic.
If you’re searching for a budget-friendly option that can be used with your choice of chain and/or weight, the Dark Amour Metal Nipple Clamps could be a compelling option. However, if you’re looking for an all-in-one solution then these clamps aren’t the ones for you.
You should buy the Dark Amour Metal Nipple Clamps if you...
- Need affordable nipple clamps
- Already have a suitable chain
- Plan on using weights
You should not buy the Dark Amour Metal Nipple Clamps if you...
- Need a chain
- Want stainless steel clamps
- Prefer silicone tips

Butterfly Nipple Clamps - Safety Guide
Butterfly nipple clamps are fairly straightforward, and if you’re using them then you’re probably already fairly familiar with basic safety. Even so, I thought it would be worth mentioning some basic safety procedures that you should follow.
Mainly, don’t wear your clamps for too long! While opinions vary on how many minutes truly constitute “too long”, this really boils down to personal preference and tolerance. You should keep track of your nipple color and make sure to take a break if you start to see any discoloration.
Don’t worry: it’s fairly unlikely that you’ll do any permanent damage if you’re not paying attention, but it’s always better to be proactive than reactive.
Additionally, make sure you’re aware of the materials you’re using. This is especially important if your clamps are made of metal, as unexpected allergic reactions will certainly put a damper on your experience.
Beyond these two points, common sense goes a long way. As long as you’re not doing anything too extreme, you really shouldn’t run into any issues (so have fun!).
How to Use Butterfly Nipple Clamps
If you’ve never used them before, this type of non-adjustable clamp might seem a bit confusing. Let’s quickly go over how to use butterfly nipple clamps!
Visually Check Your Clamps
Even if they ’re brand new, it’s always a good idea to check your clamps thoroughly. This includes checking the chain, as any metal pointing out could cause minor skin damage.
Get Your Nipples Erect
After you’ve checked the clamps, it’s time to prep your nipples. Any type of nipple play will work just fine for this! Once your nipples are hard and you have the clamps in hand, you can finally move on to placing them.
Place the Clamps
To open the clamps, simply squeeze the sides of the clamp to force it open. Position your nipple inside of the clamps and gradually let go. The clamp will tighten on your nipple, staying in place. From here, mount the other clamp and then enjoy! Remember, butterfly nipple clamps will tighten if pulled on, so don’t be afraid to give the chain a little tug if you’re up for it.
How to Clean Butterfly Nipple Clamps
Cleaning butterfly nipple clamps is super easy, so don’t forget to do it! It’s a good idea to clean them after every use, and the process only requires antibacterial soap with a bit of warm water. Using the soap and water, clean your toy once, then wash away any remaining soap using only the water. After this is done, pat your toy down using a towel and leave the toy out to dry. Avoid storing your toy away before it is done drying completely, as any leftover moisture may cause bacteria to grow in its place.
Soft plastic, hard plastic, jelly, rubber, Cyberskin are all porous materials, meaning that small particles and bacteria can penetrate the surface. This makes it impossible to completely clean these types of materials.
Therefore, it is recommended that you use a condom with these types of toys, especially if you are sharing them. Clean these toys with mild soapy water and dry gently with a towel. These materials are more easily damaged, so be sure to be gentle and make sure your toys are completely dry before storing.
Silicone, glass, stainless steel and some hard plastics can all be washed using a mild soap (like you would use on your body) and warm water. Just be careful if your toy contains electrical parts.
Silicone and stainless steel toys without any electrical parts can also be boiled for sterilisation.
If your toys contain electrical components, be extra careful when cleaning them and always check the instructions provided with the toy. You can use a gentle cloth and soap to wipe or sex toy cleaner or cleaning wipe to down your toy, making sure that no water comes into contact with the electrical parts.
