Review: Fifty Shades Darker Just Sensation Beaded Clitoral Clamp

Like it or loathe it, the Fifty Shades series are not going away. It might not be the best existing portrayal of a bdsm relationship, but it has opened up people’s minds and started to break down the taboo barrier that bondage and sex toys have, which is great. Regardless of the thoughts I have surrounding the books and films, I do have great appreciation for the adult product ranges designed by Lovehoney, the latest of which is the Fifty Shades Darker Collection. I was stoked to trial the new Just Sensation Beaded Clitoral Clamp to see if the quality from the first line had been continued.

Fifty Shades Darker Just Sensation Beaded Clitoral ClampAfter removing the clamp from the discreet, boring envelope it arrived in, I immediately noticed the wonderful packaging. It is definitely the most luxurious of all the Fifty Shades ranges so far and I was very impressed. The petite, thin box is a mixture of navy and black and features an image of the clamp on the front. The box also features a few logos throughout as-well as a quote from the book on the back along with the instructions for use. Inside, the clamp is safely secured to a piece of cardboard alongside a multi-lingual instruction guide and a branded storage pouch.

Once I opened up the box, I noted that the clamp matches perfectly with the At My Mercy Chained Nipple Clamps from the same range and also The Pinch Nipple Clamps from the original collection. It’s made from body-safe, nickel-free metal and has the same beading detail as both pairs of clamps, although it only has the small, circular Fifty Shades tag on one side instead of both. It looks very aesthetically pleasing, particularly when you’re wearing it with the matching nipple accessories. It feels high-quality and the beads are attached well, so I’m not worried about them snapping off even if they are being tugged on with a fair amount of force.

Fifty Shades Darker Just Sensation Beaded Clitoral ClampPrior to receiving this clitoral clamp, I had only used a couple of others and they had been the sort that were adjustable via a little slider, so it felt like I was taking a step in the right direction when this arrived. I did wonder how exactly I’d be able to get it on, but after some research via the net, I found it much easier than I had anticipated. It was fiddly on the first couple of attempts and a hand mirror was needed to find the correct placement, but now I can get it into place with ease.

I simply apply a small amount of water-based lubricant to the clip and a little to myself, then spread the two ends apart whilst placing the hooped end over my clitoris. It ends up pinching around the clitoris whilst the sides of the clip rest against my inner labia and the beads add a bit of weight to further intensify the pinch. It’s not painful, but it’s certainly intense enough that it cannot be forgotten about. I really like the sensation and I think it makes me feel a lot more sensitive during masturbation and oral sex. If I combine a powerful clitoral vibrator with this clamp, I am guaranteed a fast and extremely relieving orgasm.

It’s easy to remove by simply opening up the ends again, relieving the pressure and sliding it back up and over the clitoris. I’ve found the sensitivity continues for a few minutes even after the clamp is removed, but the intensity depends on how long it has been worn for. I am comfortable wearing this for around twenty minutes at a time and if I ever felt like I wanted to wear it for longer, I would allow a ten minute break after half an hour to allow the circulation to regulate again. As of right now, twenty minutes is more than enough for me to get done what I need to do and move on to another activity. After it has been removed, it can be rinsed and spritzed with toy cleaner, then placed safely in the storage bag ready for its next use.

Overall, I think this is a fantastic clamp for all users, regardless of experience level, although I would advise beginners to air on the side of caution as it is not adjustable. This was my first clitoral clamp of this type and it definitely won’t be my last. I really enjoyed wearing it and seeing how well it heightened my sensitivity. It makes a session more interesting, whether I’m alone or with my partner. It also makes stimulation from a vibrator feel more intense, which usually results in a better orgasm.

Review: Fifty Shades Darker At My Mercy Chained Nipple Clamps

Like it or loathe it, the Fifty Shades series are not going away. It might not be the best existing portrayal of a bdsm relationship, but it has opened up people’s minds and started to break down the taboo barrier that bondage and sex toys have, which is great. Regardless of the thoughts I have surrounding the books and films, I do have great appreciation for the adult product ranges designed by Lovehoney, the latest of which is the Fifty Shades Darker Collection. I was stoked to trial the new At My Mercy Chained Nipple Clamps to see if the quality from the first line had been continued.

After removing the clamps from the plain boring envelope they arrived in, I immediately noticed the amazing packaging. It’s definitely the most luxurious of all the Fifty Shades ranges so far and I was highly impressed. The petite, thin box is a mixture of navy and black and features an image of the clamps on the front. There are a few logos throughout the packaging and even a quote from the book on the back along with some instructions for use. Inside, I found the nipple clamps secured safely onto a piece of cardboard with a multi-lingual instruction guide and a navy storage pouch.

Once I’d got them out of the box I noticed that they are basically a chained version of The Pinch Nipple Clamps from the original range. They have the same beading detail, but only one of the clamps in this pair features the small, circular Fifty Shades tag. These adjustable clamps are made from body-safe, nickel-free metal with smooth silicone tips. I like the appearance of them and I think the small detailing that has been added makes these clamps more decorative and aesthetically pleasing than basic clamps. I wanted to explore the quality before placing them onto my body, so I experimented by tugging on the chain forcefully and I came to the conclusion that no matter how hard I pulled, the chain wouldn’t split or come loose.

After using the Nothing But Sensations Suckers to warm up, I opened up the clamps and placed the silicone tips around my nipples before moving to the adjuster to tighten them to my desired intensity. I encountered a slight hitch during this process as I noticed that the adjuster was quite stiff from this angle. I have found that when the clamp is facing away from me, the adjuster becomes very stubborn and doesn’t slide up easily, whereas when I’m facing it, it goes where I want it to within seconds.

At first, I thought that I may just need more practise with them, but after multiple attempts this still seems to be the case, so I’m putting it down to them being new and hoping the stiffness will wear off with more use. I have managed to do them up a couple of times on my own, but it has taken a long time, which has been a bit of a mood killer. I find these much easier when my partner places them on instead, but the downside is that I can’t surprise him by wearing them like I can with other pairs that we own.

Once they are on, I have no complaints. I was expecting them to be slightly heavier, due to the beads, but they’re actually quite lightweight. I think because of this, they would make excellent clamps for people who are looking to progress to a chained style for the first time. They can be adjusted from the softest pinch to a tight, painful pull and I like them somewhere between the two, although having the option to soften or increase the intensity as and when I want to is great.

I wear them slightly lower on the nipple if I’m wearing these for my partner to pull on as I find this really intensifies the pull the clamps have, creating a sharper pinching sensation.

Overall, I think the At My Mercy Clamps are perfect for many users, regardless of experience level, as they can be adjusted accordingly. If you’re into hardcore nipple play, then these might not be advanced enough for you, but I think they should be suitable for most other people. This was my first pair of chained nipple clamps and I have not been left disappointed. I’m definitely going to get my hands on some more as I really enjoyed wearing these.
