Handcuffs are great. They’re pretty much one of the first bits of bondage-ware you’re handed when you start to think kinky thoughts. They’re available at joke shops, in sex shops, online and there are even handcuffs on Amazon. Some are lined with fur, some are padded leather, some are soft velour, some are cold hard steel. They all have the same job though and that’s to keep a submissive in place!
I love that there are so many different varieties of handcuffs. Sometimes you want to be soft and gentle as with a first timer and sometimes you want to leave a mark as a lasting reminder of a good scene. Even a short bit of rope can become an effective pair of handcuffs with the help of Two Knotty Boys and their easy to follow tutorials!
I remember I had a client come round wanting a bit of knife play. I knew that she was already well experienced in BDSM so I didn’t want to disappoint. When it was time for her appointment I couldn’t for the life of me find my expensive top quality padded leather wrist restraints which I had gotten from Master U years ago so I had to settle for a pair of velour cuffs which came from a Sportsheets beginner’s bondage set of some sort. I was quite surprised the next day when I read her beaming review of my service. In her message she asked me where she could get a set of handcuffs like the ones I had used on her the day before. She said they were strong enough that she couldn’t escape but soft enough that she could concentrate on the knife’s edge I was dragging across her throat. Go figure!
