The Bondage Workshop - Types Of Bondage Restraint

So what is your favourite type of restraint?

Rope Bondage.

I prefer rope bondage as I can struggle and squirm about trying to reach the knots to unpick them. For me it's the escaping I like, plus the feeling of helplessness as Peter teases me with vibrators or fucks me or forces me to perform blowjobs on him.
The true aficionados out there say to use hemp rope as it doesn't stretch. But this is a little itchy on naked flesh. There is nothing like a nice picture of shibari bondage using this rope. Nylon rope stretches but if you are tied right, there should be no escape. So what's all the fuss? The con side of rope is you can be tied to tight and cut off circulation to the area tied, so have some safety scissors ready just in case.

Cuffs.

There are two main types of cuffs, manacles/metal cuffs, and leather cuffs.
Metal cuffs need a key, so don't put this somewhere you will forget it. Leather cuffs are just wrist/ankle straps with a ring that you can padlock or chain. These are much safer as they shouldn't cut circulation, but are more expensive than rope. The cons of this is you need a key, so if you are trying self bondage, you will need a release method. Try freezing the key on a piece of string in ice (and tied to your cuffs) and waiting for it to melt. That way you can pull the key free to use as a release, but will still let you immerse yourself into a form of short term inescapable bondage.

Straps.

You can buy straps from anywhere. Try belts if you don't have straps. You may need to punch a few more holes in it, but this is a fairly cheap way to get into bondage. The straps don't allow for cinching , so there is more room to wriggle, but don't tie them to tight just in case. All you do is unbuckle for a quick escape.
I saw travel case straps recently and picked up half a dozen. They are like a belt but with a push open release. When you don't push the release the hidden teeth grip the yellow nylon strap so effectively that I couldn't pull the strap apart. When you do push, it allows you a very quick escape. I just cut off the excess strap lengths to Peter's and my size. This picture comes from a free page on Akiralanebound.com

Straight jackets

These cunning devices are pretty much inescapable. Straight jackets come in all forms now. I have seen Leather, PVC, Latex, and the old fashioned Canvas all sold on the web. You put it on like a back to front coat, except the sleeves are sewn completely up. The jacket is then strapped up at the back and then the arms are pulled around so in you hug yourself. Then the arm straps are buckled behind your back. Lastly a crotch strap is tied so you cant wriggle this off.

Single Gloves.

Single Gloves are a large leather or latex triangle sleeve. It is strapped around the chest and around the back of the neck, and your hands ate put behind your back into this sleeve. The sleeve is laced or zipped up. Effectively this forces the elbows of the arms together. Additional straps may be incorporated thus also strapping the wrists and elbows making this more snug. The hands being encased and with the device strapped to your body, escape is impossible.

Tape

If you have ever used tape, then you will know this is extremely effective as a form of bondage. The down side is that it will stick to any hairs on your body and rip them out when you take it off. Try to minimise this by folding the tale in half so there is a piece that wont stick. Then wrap the tape around over this thus sticking it to the tape only, rather than your skin.
This is still an effective method. It is also cheap, but not renewable. You will need scissors to free yourself.
You can also buy special bondage tape now. This comes in all sorts of colours. It is similar to plumbing tape (Peter told me this). This stuff only sticks to itself using a form of compression - squishing the air out, thus it forms a surface area that wont slip. This tape is not sticky, so wont ruin your clothes or furniture you decide to tie yourself to.This type of tape can be reused if you unwrap it properly.

Chain

This takes me back to medieval days. Chain is cold and heavy and final. When its padlocked in place it is very uncomfortable as the movements click and rub against you. There is a danger of pinching to the flesh, and you will need a form of release and a method to lock them. IE padlocks and keys. You can use chain with the leather cuffs if you have them.This picture comes from a free page on ShackledMaidens.com

Happy Bondage

Depends on the mood. Rope (the type with a cotton outer that you can buy easily at B&Q) for the best effects. Cling film for the highest degree of kink. Straps if you want to work quickly and have something to strap the body to. All good stuff, whether doing, or being done too...
