A Beginner’s Guide To Bondage Collars

So, you’ve decided you want to keep your submissive on a tight leash?

Collars are a visual symbol of submission and control, and are often worn in the bedroom by submissive partners to indicate their position. Collars can also be practical, they typically feature rings for attaching either leads, or other restraints. When fastened to other furniture/equipment, it keeps subs in place for whatever pleasing or teasing is thrown their way.

Safety First

First things first, discuss and pick a safeword. Double check that you are both aware of the word and that when it is said the session is stopped completely.

It is vital that the collar fits comfortably and safely. Getting your collar to fit perfectly depends on two factors: measuring and fastening. Before you buy a collar, use a tape measure to figure out the circumference of your neck around the widest part (usually around an inch above your collar bone). Take a note of this measurement and compare it to the sizes on the product page.

When starting out, have the Dom fasten the collar. It must be tightened slowly, making sure the sub’s breathing and swallowing is not at all hindered. If this is not possible, the collar is too tight. Always make sure there is a two-finger gap between the neck and collar for maximum comfort and safety. If you experience any discomfort, remove or loosen the collar immediately. If it’s chafing, apply some moisturiser or Lube (£13.99, kinky.co.uk).

When it comes to disciplining your sub or pet, tugging on the collar or any attached leads is not acceptable. A sharp tug can cause serious damage, or could even lead to whiplash.

Types of Collars

There is a vast range of collars out there to suit every need and desire.

1. Wolf Collars were originally used to protect wolves from dogs. They are usually made of leather and are adorned all the way around with sharp spikes. We recommend: Leather O-Ring Studded Collar (£27.99, kinky.co.uk).

2. Slave Collars are versatile and easy to use. They are usually made from rubber or leather and feature a buckle or Velcro fastening. The distinctive feature of ‘slave’ collars is the attached O-ring or D-ring to the front, like that on the Plain Leather Collar (£27.99, kinky.co.uk). This allows you to attach cuffs, leashes, and so on to your sub to keep them under your control.

3. Keep your sub on a tight leash with a Collar and Lead. Perfect for those who enjoy a little pet play! We recommend: Sinful Collar (£19.99, kinky.co.uk).

4. A Collar with Cuffs takes restraining to the next level, preventing your sub’s arms from a full range of motion. We recommend: Fetish Fantasy Series Collar with Cuffs and Leash (£39.99, kinky.co.uk).

5. What better way to clamp down on some naughty behaviour than with a Collar with Clamps? The perfect way to experiment with the more fetish related side of collar wearing.
