My Personal Experiences
Finding nipple clamps that look nice, aren’t too extreme and actually work is no easy feat. After searching for a while to find a pair that might suit me, I settled on these simple Fetish Fantasy Alligator clamps. I’m a beginner to nipple clamps, but I absolutely love some fairly rough nipple stimulation, so I was game to try them out!
An Immediate Bad ImpressionThe first thing I did after taking the photos was throw away that incredibly ugly packaging! It looks like it belongs in the most seedy sex shop ever, but it’s not really reusable anyway. Then, I played around with the clamps themselves. I thought the chain looked a bit cheap, but not too bad, and I liked the rubber-coated tips and handles. However, once I started moving the screws to adjust the tightness, and noticed that the thread on one of them was stripped! It screwed in a bit, but then moved about of its own accord — great.
Some Ups…Despite the slightly broken clamp, I still had to test these bad boys out. The stripped screw seemed to hold when placed at a certain angle, so I adjusted them to a slightly open angle to begin with. After a good amount of foreplay and more gentle nipple stimulation, I put on the Fetish Fantasy Alligator nipple clamps and was surprised with how great they felt. My pain tolerance was a bit higher than usual since I was aroused, and the pinch was pleasantly strong! It gave me the constant stimulation I craved, and my boyfriend’s hands were free to do other things on my body, which I appreciated. The chain on the nipple clamps was also a really nice touch aesthetically — it made me feel so sexy!
…But Mostly DownsThe pleasure was short-lived, however, because once I moved too suddenly, the stripped screw moved too and the clamp snapped shut! It went from pleasant pain to “Ow, I have to stop what I’m doing and get this thing off right now!” pain. They quickly got thrown across the room and we continued the session without nipple clamps, and I had a bit of a sore nip for a while after. You might think that was the end of things, but I was curious to see if I could use them at their tightest level so the same thing wouldn’t happen again. That did work a bit better when I tried that way, but I actually found that they fell off after a while in doggy-style. At that point, I was totally over it, and they haven’t made an appearance again.
There's nothing much special about the design of the Fetish Fantasy Alligator nipple clamps, but it's passable enough. They have, as you might expect, alligator-style clamps (also sometimes called crocodile clips), which are adjustable by a small screw on the side. The metal only comes in silver, with black rubber coated tips and handles. The chain is also a bit chunky, but it's still quite light.
Ease of Use
When they work like they're meant to, these clamps are pretty easy to use. To adjust the tightness, all you need to do is turn the screws on the sides, and they should stay put (though check if they work properly before putting them on!). The rubber coating makes them more comfortable to put on, but also provides a little bit of grip to help them stay on your nipples. However, how well they stay will depend a bit of the size and shape of your nipples, and the position you're in. For me, they slipped off quite easily when my chest was angled downward.
I am honestly shocked at how low-quality these nipple clamps are. Even for a beginner-friendly product, they feel cheap, flimsy and poorly manufactured. Mine broke before I even got a chance to use them, which I think says a lot. At least they have that coating on the clamps themselves, which seemed to stay put on my pair. I have read other reviews, however, of this coming off quite easily.
The Fetish Fantasy Alligator Nipple Clamps are certainly cheap, I'll give them that. However, they're actually very similarly priced to other beginner-friendly nipple clamps, which I believe are better quality products. If price is the deciding factor for you, I would recommend looking at the Fifty Shades of Grey collection of nipple clamps by Lovehoney instead, which are very affordable.
When these nipple clamps worked, they really did work! I thoroughly enjoyed the pleasurable pain of the pinch, especially when paired with some light impact play for all-over sensations. However, the frustration that came with them being broken was not fun, and took me out of the moment when I wanted to
This is by far the worst-packaged sex toy I've ever owned. The image on the cardboard backing is so off-putting, and the whole design just looks so cheap! It really reminds me of something you'd find in a sleazy old sex shop, and I threw it away as soon as humanly possible.
Materials and care
The Fetish Fantasy Alligator nipple clamps are made from metal, though the brand doesn't specify what kind, or if it contains nickel or not. The tips are made from rubber, but again it's not clear what kind. To clean them, you can simply rinse them with water and soap, or wipe them with a clean, damp cloth. Make sure they're fully dry before storing, or they may rust. They also don't come with any kind of storage bag, which would be nice to prevent them from getting tangled up with anything else.

Long story short, I don't recommend buying the Fetish Fantasy Alligator Nipple Clamps. Even if they don't come broken like mine did, there are of a very poor quality, both in terms of materials and construction. They aren't likely to last you, and, even if you're looking for a cheap, beginner-friendly pair of nipple clamps, there are better options out there.
