Bondage Restraints Guide

Let's be straight forward when talking about bondage restraints. It can be really satisfying to have someone restrained and it can be really exciting, if you are the one being restrained, as it increases sensitivity and allows you to incorporate sensory play. Over the last few years there has been a massive increase in people wanting to learn how to administer bondage and bring BDSM into the bedroom, mainly due to a series of highly popular novels and films being released. What was once seen as something mainly taboo, has had an upsurge in popularity, leaving lovers wanting more and to explore what types of play they can bring into the bedroom to enhance their sex lives.


Spanking is very popular and great to include with your restrained submissive. It is easy to accommodate for, tying up bottoms in a way that you have full control over their access. You must however, also have full control over the situation and a little direction. But following some very simple tips which you will find within this guide; will help you keep everything and everyone in it's place. With all bondage and BDSM, it is essential that you follow a few safety guidelines so boundaries are never crossed and the restraints never cut off circulation. Always leave a two finger space between the restraints and the body, and make sure you tie above the joints, otherwise, this can effect the circulation and make breathing difficult. So now we have the important things out of the way: Lets take a look at some of the most popular styles of restraint.


Bondage Rope should be a staple in all bedrooms as it is highly versatile. Rope allows you to really immerse yourself in this ancient Japanese art, if you so wish to choose to. It looks visually pleasing and a good quality rope is hard wearing, which will last a very long time. Bondage Tape is perfect for restricting movement, but you must take care as you can easily bind too tightly, as it is strong and highly durable. Tape is attractive too as it can come in varying colours and styles; so looks great when combined with fetish clothing. It can take a little practice, but you soon get to know how to make this restraint work for you and your partner. Under-bed Restraints, these are the perfect restraint for beginners as they come with everything you may possibly need. They are simple to install and easy to clean and pack away with you, so are a must for any wannabe doms and their submissive.


Spreader bars are amazing! A spreader bar works by keeping a partners legs or arms apart so you get the perfect position for penetration. These items are great for humiliation. These bars are suitable for both beginners and old hands alike as they come in a range of materials for varying comfort levels. There are a few positions which can be used when using these bars as the cuffs which fasten around the wrists or ankles fasten securely.


Handcuffs are one of the first kind of restraints many people go for. They offer a certain amount of fun to the proceedings. These devices heighten senses and you can cuff in-front or behind and they can be used with other types of restraint. These devices are truly ideal for adding just a touch of bondage to play. Collars make for a perfect submissive and they come in a variety of styles made from different materials. Most collars feature a D ring function, so leads and other devices may be attached. Always make sure you get the correct sized collar as one which is too tight, could restrict your submissive's breathing. These collars are sometimes called, slave collars or posture collars as they can keep your lover upright and firmly where you want them. Door Restraints are restraints which can be fastened within a doorway. You can have your submissive tied up and wanting freedom in no time at all by using these, as they work on a psychological level of the sub needing freedom and escape is in reach! The body harness is often used with sex furniture as it is used via suspension. They are a great way to keep your slave in check and keep them where they are wanted. These items are for those with some experience as using harnesses does need training before being administered alongside other bondage materials. They are often highly versatile as they come with many rings and other attachment areas which can be used in many forms of play.
