It's a Tie: 3 Ways to Up Your Game With Bondage

Posted on

Over the past few years, it's become increasingly easier to talk about adult accessories—and in particular, bondage.  Now, plenty of couples regularly spice up their bedroom life with light bondage elements such as handcuffs, wrist restraints, clamps and blindfolds.  But if you've tried these elements and are now looking for your next steps, it can be a little intimidating.  The market is full of options of varying complexity and cost, and if you're unsure what to look for, you may be overwhelmed by all the choices.  To combat this, here are three ideas for specific types of intermediate bondage to try out and add to your collection.

Under-Mattress Restraint Systems

If your bed doesn't have a headboard to fasten restraints to, then these under-mattress systems can be real game-changers.  Essentially, they lay just on top of your bed frame and below your mattress, leaving loops that stick out from underneath.  With the weight of the mattress on top, these loops can be used just as a headboard would.  There are options available to suit many budgets, and they can be very subtle and easy to tuck away from the prying eyes of family members or other guests.

Rope

Most people dipping their toes into the waters of bondage start with silk ties or with metal options such as handcuffs; they're easy to tie and to adjust.  Because of this, you can consider using rope as a restraint to be an upgrade.  Rope is rougher against the skin and may require you to use complex knots.  Over time, you can work up to more complex knots and ties such as you might see in Japanese erotic shibari knotting—sometimes also known as kinbaku.  As a bonus, rope is easy to store discreetly.

Wearable Restraints

As an alternative to traditional harnesses or restraints, consider clothing that doubles as a restraint—for example, a bodysuit that holds the ankles and knees together, or a modern chastity belt.  More intense versions—such as full latex bodysuits—may also restrict the senses.  This clothing is more intense than a harness, as it cannot be removed as easily or as quickly.  It can also be incorporated easily in roleplaying or character play, assisting the wearer into entering another identity.

There is a whole world of products out there to expand your interest in bondage, and these are just three ideas for places to start.  In all cases, you should just choose items that appeal to you and your partner and build from there.  So long as you're careful, the worst that can happen is that you try an item which ends up not working for you.
