Bondage and Fetish FAQs

What is Bondage

The word Bondage originates from a term of slavery but is much more modernly referred to as a type of sexual practice. Bondage in terms of a sexual practice refers to consensual sexual play where one partner is physically restrained with a restraint, such as an under bed restraint kit, handcuffs, bondage rope, or tape. The restrained partner may also have some of their sense deprived, such as their sight by being blindfolded, this enables the heightened sensation of other senses such as touch, smell, and taste.

Bondage should not be confused with more hardcore play such as BDSM (Dominant and Submissive) where enjoyment may be derived from physical pain, restraint, and humiliation. Read more about BDSM below.

How to do Bondage

Bondage is a great way to improve your sex life and explore new avenues of pleasure. If you're new to bondage, there are many ways to start introducing it to your sex life. The first step is talking to your partner and working out what you're both comfortable with. Read our beginners guide to bondage here for more information on how to start the conversation with your partner, and how to begin experimenting with bondage.

The next step is to look at what bondage items you might be interested in using. The main products to start experimenting with are blindfolds (depriving a lover of sight), under-bed restraints (to keep one partner restrained to the bed), or handcuffs to keep a partner restrained. You can also use a soft spanker or paddle to introduce new sensations to the bedroom. We suggest a spanker with a feather end to go from super soft touch to a harder but gentle spank.

Communication is key to successful and pleasurable bondage sexual play, as well as all the right bondage gear. Start slowly and continuously speak to your partner to ensure that they are comfortable and most importantly - enjoying what you're doing do them!

Why do People Like Bondage

Bondage can be a great way to spruce up average sex lives and allow consenting adults to indulge in a whole new world of sexual play and fantasy. Bondage involves the restraint of a partner, rending one partner helpless and at the mercy of a more dominant partner.

This can offer a whole new world of excitement and sensations, especially if a more naturally dominant partner is restraint - the power balance will be completely turned on its head. The person restrained needs to put their full trust in their partner and relinquish control of the situation, which can open up a whole new world of emotions and sensations. Communication is key when it comes to bondage play. The partner that's not restraint should always ensure the restrained partner is comfortable and happy with the situation. Bondage is about building trust with your partner and for everyone involved to be enjoying the sexual stimulation bondage has to offer.

Is Bondage Safe

Bondage is about one person being restrained which can be achieved using numerous bondage items. If bondage is practiced correctly with a constant line of communication between yourself and with your partner, there's no reason bondage should be unsafe.

5 Tips to Make Sure Bondage is Safe

  • Make sure you talk to your partner before embarking on any bondage play. Agree prior to sex what you're both comfortable with.
  • Create a safe word. If either partner says this word out loud, it means stop.
  • Start off slowly, even if you want to go in at the deep end. A pair of furry handcuffs or loosely tied bondage rope which can be gotten out of fairly easily if required. This is a good place to start. Always use soft ties if you're just starting out so that the restraints are comfortable and can help you to relax.
  • Always have a pair of trauma scissors to hand which can cut through any knots in bondage rope that can't easily be undone in case of an emergency.
  • Avoid trying bondage if you've taken any substances such as alcohol, especially in the beginning. It's important to practice safe, sober sex when experimenting with something like bondage play. Always ensure your sex is safe, consensual and sober.

Does Bondage Hurt

Another common question asked is, does bondage hurt? This is completely up to you and your partner - is pain also your pleasure? If not, it doesn't have to be painful unless you want it to be.

Bondage is about one partner being restrained and putting their trust into their partner. By using soft restraints (for example by using furry handcuffs), being restrained doesn't need to 'hurt'. The level of pain you want to (or not) indulge in is completely up to you. The key to bondage is communication and building trust with your partner. Remember, if you're ever uncomfortable to tell your partner and make sure you discuss what you'd like and dislike being done to you before practicing any bondage.

Is Bondage Normal

Is wanting to indulge in some bondage play normal? It is absolutely normal and an incredible way to mix things up in the bedroom. Bondage is the restraint of yourself or a partner, this allows for a complete power play. Perhaps one day you want to be the powerless partner at the total mercy of someone else's desires and ability to pleasure you with no control. Other days, you might want to dominate the situation and have total control of your partner to indulge in their body as you see fit. Bondage is a fantastic way to power-play and discover more about yourself and what you like and dislike when it comes to your sexual preferences.

What is Self Bondage

Self Bondage refers to the restraint of yourself rather than someone else. Different restraints such as rope, tape or handcuffs can be used (as well as many others) and the release can either be triggered by yourself or someone else.

It's advised anyone seeking to conduct self-bondage seeks proper information as restraining yourself can have obvious negative consequences. The risks are higher with self-bondage and you should always have access to a quick-release or way to escape from your restraints if required in case of an emergency.

If you're wanting to practice some entry-level self-bondage, why not try wearing an eye mask or tie your legs gently to bedposts with some bondage rope whilst masturbating. When using rope or cuffs, always ensure you have scissors nearby to cut the rope or keys to unlock the cuffs in an emergency.

How to tie Bondage Rope

The soft but firm use of bondage rope against the body is a sure-fire way to enhance your sexual energy. You can use bondage rope to create some incredible restraints and creative bodywear pieces. This is often referred to as bondage ropework.

Bondage ropework is also often referred to as Shibari, which is a Japanese word meaning “to tie decoratively”. Kinbaku is a Japanese word which means “tight binding”.

  • What is BDSM

    What does BDSM Stand For?

    BDSM stands for Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, and Masochism. Bondage is part of BDSM, however, BDSM is different from just Bondage. Bondage refers only to the restraint of someone, where BDSM can include acts of discipline, which can include physical and emotional pain to achieve sexual arousal and gratification.

  • B Bondage refers to the restraint of a partner which then requires them to fully trust their other partner to ensure they're safe and comfortable. This release of control to someone else having power over your body can be found to be incredibly erotic and freeing.
  • D Discipline includes disciplining a partner if they don't act how you want them to for yours and their pleasure. Discipline styles will vary and can include physical and emotional styles. For example, if someone misbehaves they may then be required to perform a sexual act, or act of embarrassment in front of their dominant partner to show that they're sorry.
  • S stands for Sadism. A Sadist is the dominant partner (often referred to as a 'Dom' or 'Dominatrix') and inflicts pain towards the submissive partner (often referred to as 'Sub' 'The Sub'). The pain and / or humiliation of the submissive partner often gives the dominant partner pleasure leading to sexual gratification.
  • M stands for Masochism. Masochism is the partner receiving pain, both emotional and physical which can include whipping, spanking and humiliation from the Sadist partner.

    BDSM allows people in a consensual relationship to explore their boundaries if pain and pleasure, take on new roles in their sex lives and relinquish control, or gain masses of control for their pleasure and sexual gratification. This can be exciting, emotional and arousing.
