Bondage Boutique Silky Rope Multi Position Restraint Set 9/10

As a couple who incorporate BDSM regularly into their sex life, under the bed restraints were always going to be high on our list, but don’t feel like you have to be ‘hard-core’ to own restraints. You can use them for something as simple as giving a massage while your other half is tied up, tickling them with a feather or teasing them with an ice cube. Handing control over to your partner is a powerful feeling and helps to build a stronger bond of trust.

 

These rope-style under the bed restraints come in a clear plastic bag, no fancy packaging in sight. I loved the look of these as soon as I set my eyes upon them, I adore the idea of rope but I’ve learnt the hard way that rope from the garage is NOT suitable for tying yourself up with. These restraints are very soft, beautifully woven and sturdy. They look and feel so seductive that they’ve earned the right to live on bed permanently.

You can use a clip to tie these all together by their O-rings and put them under your mattress in an X shape, then bring whats left of the rope (Where the slip tie is) up above the mattress. Or just tie each of them to your bed posts. Alternatively thread the rope back through the O-ring the create a loop to secure the ropes to other furniture.

As they work with a slip knot style, they get tighter on your wrists/ankles the more you struggle. For beginners this probably isn’t ideal and you might want to look at an under bed restraint with built in cuffs as that will alleviate this. I personally struggle a lot, especially if the whips and floggers are out to play. I actually love straining against these restraints and tugging them tighter. It’s like instant feedback punishment for moving when I know I shouldn’t. I also get off a bit on the constriction/pain of pulling really hard and making them tight. That said, on occasion I have had to interrupt my OH mid-stride to mention that I may be about to lose a limb, which is a bit of a mood killer. I have a solution for that too though, by turning these around and using the slip tie to attach them to the bed – or table legs, various other pieces of furniture, door knobs, radiators, ceiling hooks etc. I can then leave the O-rings free to clip cuffs onto so I can use our luxury DOMINIX Deluxe cuffs, which have never almost relieved me of a hand or foot.

These restraints won’t give you rope burns but you may get temporary red marks if you’ve had them tight for a while. You can’t secure someone completely with these, I have managed to get out of them before due to them slip tying instead of having cuffs. For a strong hold make sure there’s very little available slack on the rope as this will keep the loops tight.

I’ve had these for a year now and there is no fraying, they look and feel as amazing as they always have. The O-rings are super strong and the rope is too. I’m chuffed, they are superbly versatile, but you absolutely will need to invest in some metal clips to get the most out of them. I love that they don’t look too hard-core so I feel comfortable leaving them on the bed, it makes them super convenient for mid-session debauchery and means no buckle up cuffs to contend with! YAY!

These restraints can be found at Lovehoney for only £19.99, you’d have to be either crazy or penniless not to give in to them!
