BDSM is a very common kink that is expressed in many different forms. One of these many forms that represent BDSM is genital clamps. Hearing that, I imagine you are feeling one of two things. Arousal or fear. Both are very acceptable feelings and can benefit thoroughly from a good pinch of pressure.
Genital clamps are used for the obvious, clamping genitals. This adds the sensation of pressure and pleasurable pain as well as offering a bit of torture and control to the bedroom. For women, it can mean a whole new kind of orgasm, for men it is a way to induce a male orgasm denial. This adds to the pleasure extending play time till it is time to wrap up.
The number one safety tip I can offer is to be conscious of the time that the clamps are being used. Extended periods of clamp use can lead to damage and complications. Safety is key in any sexual act, when you add toys like clamps into the mix it is important to check the area regularly to make sure it is still healthy.
Something to note is that there is good sensitive and bad sensitive, knowing the difference between the two is important to ensuring a pleasurable experience. Whoever is having the clamps used on them should be okay with the level of sensation they are experiencing. For example, one might be aroused by their nipples being clamped, but the labia may be too sensitive to endure the pressure and it will be more unpleasant than exciting.

Tips for Beginners
This isn’t something you should just jump into, and after considering and learning the safety precautions, you should research techniques and read up on other’s experiences to see if it sounds appealing or gives you an idea of how to gauge the level of pressure.
For beginners, it is best to avoid using household items and homemade devices until you are more experienced and knowledgeable on the genital clamp play. In the case of the nipples, it is acceptable to use clothespins once. However, they are generally made of wood, which is porous and absorb bodily fluids, building up bacteria over time.
Know where you are going for your toys and tools. Honestly, you don’t want a second-rate sex shop to sell you a second rate clamp that might be more intense than you need. Reputable shops generally have educated employees who practice different kinks themselves. You are looking to get a pair of clamps with easy tightening and loosening abilities. A good set of clamps will have soft, plastic heads for comfort and safety.
Ease into it. Don’t rush in and think you can keep up with an experienced player. It is wiser to make sure you get used to the sensation as if you were warming up to go running. Slow and steady to start, making sure that you don’t not use clamps for too long (5-10 minutes for starters is suggested). Less time is suggested if you or your partner is particularly sensitive.

Over time you can increase the time that the clamps are used, as well as the frequency that they are used. Training your body to the clamps is a must in order to fully enjoy this couples experience. Also, do not clamp in the same spot every time. Or for prolonged periods of time. Always adjust and reposition the clamps. Also, during break periods, make sure to message the area to reintroduce sensation again.
Labia clamping is a common practice when it comes to genital clamps. People find enjoyment in it for a variety of reasons. For starters, massaging, gently pinching, and tugging on the labia with the genital clamps can cause a hidden world of clitoral complex to spring to life. This can intensify climax and add to arousal.
Another reason people use labia clamps is for the sensation of pain you can derive from it. Stronger genital clamps can feel amazingly brutal (in a good way). You can receive a harsh sensation, one that you crave so deeply. Whether you choose to use strong, or more gentle clamps, the removal can prove to be satisfyingly intense. Just the blood rushing back alone is enough to cause a climax for many people who dabble in genital clamps. However, you can increase the sensation by gently rubbing or even blowing warm breath on the area.
You don’t have much of a variety of nipple clamps or vices, but you can find some that clamp, vice, pinch, squeeze, and restrict. There is also an electrosex clamp that adds a jolt of electricity to your play.
Knowing how to apply the clamps correctly is something that you need to do before ever attempting to use any kind of genital clamp. Lack of education on the subject could lead to unwanted results or unpleasant experiences. Different types of clamps add different types of pressure. Most nipple clamps can be attached wherever it is most comfortable. However, clit clamps can be designed to go on specific parts of the body. To get the most out of your toy and experience, make sure you are using your toys in the way that they were intended.
Placement for most clamps is pretty open. Though, there are specific spots that you don’t want the clamps to go. Avoid going near nerves and extremely sensitive areas where you can easily damage the body in any way. Including the clitoris, clitoral hood, and some main veins in the penis.
Lastly, have fun. It is important to note that when experimenting, learning, and beginning to use genital clamps, you should be enjoying yourself. Don’t put yourself in a painful or uncomfortable position if you don’t want to be in that position. The same goes for clamping areas, do not clamp an area of your body that you don’t want to experiment with. Be safe, have fun, and be protected.
