A clit clamp is a simple sex toy designed to gently squeeze the clitoris and provide thrilling arousal without vibrations.
They can be worn during masturbation, foreplay and even sex, making them super-versatile. During wear they offer direct stimulation where you need it most, and when removed they leave the clitoris super-sensitive to subsequent touches.
You'll sometimes see clit clamps referred to by different names, such as clitoral clamps, clit jewellery, clit clips, pleasure clips, Cleopatra's clip, genital clamps or any variation of these, but don't worry. They're all the same thing.
Looking for a gift you can enjoy together? Whether you’re after a treat to shake up date night, an enticing surprise or something to spoil your long-distance lover, sex toys are a great way to introduce exciting scenarios and sensations to your love life.

Lots of couples want to explore new ways to excite their partner and stimulate each other's senses to their full potential during foreplay, but when you've already exhausted the tools Mother Nature gave you, it can be difficult to know what to move on to next.
Experimenting with sensory play such as erotic massage, temperature play and light spanking is a great way to instantly turn up the heat on your pleasure. If you're brand new to this kind of play, you might like to start with something a little less intimidating, like a feather tickler.
Unlike other types of sensory exploration which can require a certain level of skill or confidence, feather ticklers are the perfect balance between invitingly soft and excitingly new, whilst still being wonderfully easy to use.
