Beginner's Guide to Bondage

Bondage & FetishIt has been kind of kept under the rug, but you may have heard that there’s something new in sex that has got a few tongues wagging over the past couple of years. Something about tying people up and spanking and... oh my.

All kidding aside, bondage is definitely not a new or a little phenomena! It may have taken one erotica novel to get it some attention, but bondage is a time-honoured and tested sexual specialty that has been enjoyed for centuries by many different types of people. And since it has become a part of mainstream culture, more folks than ever are experiencing the joys of restraint, pain for pleasure and psychological seduction.

There are many different types of bondage and fetish play that can excite and entice you. Maybe you or your partner want to be tied up, maybe you want to be spanked, maybe you want to roleplay, maybe you want to use cruel but cool toys. There are as many ways to explore bondage as there are tongues out there wagging in anticipation!

If you are interested in getting into bondage, here are some essential things to remember:

Communicate and pick a safeword

The most important part of successful bondage scenes is a great amount of communication. Everybody involved should be on the same page on what is planned to happen, who is going to do what, what will be used, and this is key, what everybody’s boundaries are. As part of establishing boundaries, everybody should establish a safeword. You can use this signature word to indicate a desire to slow or stop action in a bondage scene.

Explore through books, talks and porn

Bondage can be intimidating when you’re just starting out. If neither you nor your partner have experience in bondage, it is a great idea to explore the ins and outs of rough and tumble through books, talking with others and good, representative porn (research known and respected brands). You’ll learn insider tricks and tips, as well as understanding that other people are really into the kinky things you want to try.

Go slow

Bondage play is usually not the realm of quickies. Sure, you might pull off a scarf, tie your partner’s hands behind their back and go at it, but that doesn’t work as well with dedicated scenes. Plus, when you take your time, you and your partner can experience all of the nuances of bondage sexiness. Relish these moments of hedonistic delight!

Shop for exciting toys

You can enjoy a lot of bondage fun with just your hands or a few household items, but when you really get a taste for the dark arts of sex, you’ll be excited to try new things with new toys! Check out some of the items below for the various different implements you can introduce into your new sexytimes!

Blindfolds & Eye Masks

Blindfolds & Eye Masks

Sensory deprivation is a big part of BDSM for many folks, and one of the best ways to ensure your partner is left guessing is to take their sight away! Blindfolds and eye masks take away sight and the other senses become more aware. Combine this with some hot bondage and you’ll be in for quite a scene.


Hoods & Masks
