5 Reasons to Try Restraints

Not easily roped into bondage? Knot sure how you feel about being tied down?

Bondage can be kinky, fun, and a great way to spice things up in the bedroom. The act of restraining your partner can offer new physical experiences and an intensified emotional connection – and this is just the tip of the iceberg! See what we mean; you won’t be able to restrain yourself… 

1. It’s sexy and powerful 

We all enjoy the driver’s seat from time to time, but it’s always incredible hot to see our partners’ taking command in the bedroom. We are more than happy to be on the receiving end of their domination! 

For the dom, that look of helplessness can be extremely arousing, plus the decorative nature of the restraints themselves will tie in nicely.   

2. Let’s spice things up… 

No matter how kinky you are, the best of us can fall into a stagnant routine. There are many, many ways that we are wired for pleasure. We all have our kinks, so explore them to the full.

3. It’ll create an intense emotional connection 

Sharing new experiences with your partner will naturally bring you closer together. Being restarined involves a level of trust that you never though possible. Boundaries are pushed but never overstepped, so you’ll both connect on an entirely new emotional level.  One study even found that couples who partake in BDSM had a hormonal reaction that lead to the feeling of increased levels of intimacy after play. So, giving up control is an exchange worth making! 

4. Experiment with your senses 

Develop a sixth sense for superior sex play! When one sense is restricted, others are intensified. Through limiting movement, even the gentlest of touch will result in explosive sensations. Use this to your advantage and engage in some sexy sensation play.  

5. Keep subs in their place for superior stimulation… 

Don’t go anywhere; we’ve not finished with you yet! Once you’ve found that optimum position, a restrain will help you maintain it. Your play will be spot on, and your partner well and truly in their place! 

Safety First 

BDSM is never risk-free; the biggest concern when it comes to bondage is nerve damage and circulatory problems. If your partner reports tingling or a loss of sensation, or you spot a change in temperature or skin colour – stop the scene immediately. Check in with your partner often using safe words and keep new subs in bondage for no more than 15-30 minutes at a time. Do not leave your bound sub unattended at any time. 

As mentioned above, you really need to communicate beforehand. So, before you start tying things up, you should discuss a safe word. Double check that you are both aware of the word and that when it is said the session is stopped completely.  

Bondage is all about mixing pain and pleasure, but you must always be aware of your partner’s needs. Communication, whether verbal or physical, is what bondage is about. You should take note of your partners’ reactions and tailor your games and techniques to that.  

Start with a Bondage Kit? 

For first tie-ers, a bondage kit is an all-in-one solution for bondage scenarios. Often marketed for beginners, bedroom bondage kits usually include a pair of ankle cuffs, a pair of wrist cuffs, a blindfold and some form of whip, flogger or paddle. More advanced bondage kits can include ball gags, ticklers, collars and leads, ropes, bondage tape, spreader bars, and more elaborate restraints. Bondage kits are a wonderful way of building up your collection of bondage gear and tend to work out cheaper than buying all items separately. If you’re curious about bondage or BDSM, this is the most cost-effective way to explore before purchasing more expensive toys. 

The Fetish Fantasy Bedroom Bondage Kit (£59.99)  is perfect for couples looking to try something fun and different. This kit includes: ankle straps, wrist restraints, leather whip, satin mask, and 4 bedpost extensions. The restraints and bedposts are interlocking, giving you endless pleasure possibilities by simply connecting the clips together. Go ahead, dare to get naughty!
