Handcuffs - Bondage 101

There has been an huge increase in popularity in bondage play since the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey books and movies. And although not everyone is a fan of the 50 Shades trilogy most people can admit to there being something arousing about being blindfolded and tied up – or about doing this to your partner.

Bondage play is not necessarily about being whipped or gagged, but can be about more sensual play and basic control. Many beginners like to start with blindfolds and ticklers and perhaps a pair cuffs and never really move past this, and that’s ok. As with everything sexual – its about what you find comfortable. Trust is very important when is comes to any type of Bondage or BDSM play – restraining a lover allows them to completely surrender and trust in you.
