Restraints

Restrainer

A restrainer or restraints is the equipment you use to tie up and subdue the sub. This helps the Dom establish control and authority as they make sure that the sub is rendered immobile. Of course, when you can’t move, you’re under Dom’s mercy, which heightens your thrill and sensations during the experience. If you’re a newbie in bondage, this is where people start experimenting with kinky play. But whether you’re a beginner or veteran in BDSM, these are still essential bondage items.

There’s a wide selection of toys when it comes to restraints. You can try simple restraints, including wrist and ankle restraints. There are also those that you use for the whole body, like body harness restraints and arm binders. You should also consider the material. There are steel, leather, cloth, and satin restraints. Depending on what you want and how your play will go, make sure that you choose restraints that won’t hurt you in any way.

There are so many types of restraints, so using them will also depend on what you have. Handcuffs are tied or worn around the wrist to give up control of the hands. Armbinders and other full-body restraints have more extended reach and give more expanded control over the sub. Either way, these restraints give the sub a feeling of helplessness that the dom uses to heighten the experience. For safety purposes, the dom must never abuse the control they have over the sub. Moreover, prolonged usage of some types of restraints can cause damage to the sub’s skin. So, the dom should be responsible for making sure that the sub is alright throughout the play.

History of BDSM

It began in Mesopotamia, wherein a Goddess named Inanna would make her followers dance and whip them until they end up being soooo aroused. BDSM has also been depicted in Ancient Greece’s art. Even the Indian sex book “Kama Sutra,” dating as far as 300 AD, includes spanking accompanying their erotic positions.

However, it was in the 18th century that the concept of BDSM was fully introduced. During this time, some European brothels began specializing in restraint, flagellation, and other “punishments” that “dominant” women gave out to consenting “submissive” men. In the late 1700s, Marquis De Sade, a French nobleman, and philosopher published 120 Days of Sodom and Justine, showcasing BDSM themes in his works.

In 1905, famous psychologist Sigmund Freud coined the word “sadomasochism” and labeled enjoyment of it as “neurotic.” For some time, even the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders listed this practice as a “psychiatric disorder.” Thankfully, BDSM is now widely accepted and even has become part of pop culture. Kinky toys such as a restrainer, paddle, and whip are now becoming pleasure staples.

Types of Restrainer

If you’re new to the alluring world of bondage, researching the types of restraints is essential. Various restrainers cater to a specific function, so make sure to get a restrainer that fits your preferences.

The first type is a sectional restrainer. It only hinders a particular section of your body, such as your hands, legs, or ankles. If you’re just starting with bondage play, we suggest using this type. Restraints under this type are handcuffs, ankle cuffs, armbinder, bondage bar, and testicle cuffs.

Next on the list is the full-body restrainer. It’s designed to immobilize the submissive’s full body. We don’t suggest this for first-timers; opt for the sectional type instead. Restraints under this type include hogtie harnesses, over-the-door restraints, and bed restraints.

The last type is the all-around restrainer. As the name implies, it can be used as a sectional or full-body restrainer. Restraints under this type include BDSM rope and bondage tape. Beginners can use this; just make sure to research the proper rope restraint techniques before using this in the deed.

Care & Maintenance

Cleaning your restraints depends on the type of the restraint as well as your restrainer’s main material. For sectional and full-body restraints made with leather, detach the cuffs from the chains; only do this if they are actually detachable. Clean the cuffs by wiping them with a damp, soapy cloth or leather cleaner. You can also use a leather conditioner to keep leather soft and protected. Never soak them, and just air dry them.

As for velcro cuffs, you can gently hand wash them. Meanwhile, clean the metal chains with warm water and soap or sex toy cleaner. On the other hand, if you want to clean BDSM ropes, it’s better to check the rope’s material, then research its cleaning process. Different types of ropes require specific cleaning processes.

Once you’re done cleaning and drying your restrainer, keep them inside a satin or velvet pouch. This will minimize exposure to dust and dirt. Store it somewhere that’s cool, dry, and secure. Keep it away from children’s reach.
