I Hogtied My Lover Into Ultimate Submission

Woman in shibari and posture collar

I would love to thank leather manufacturer Kailash G. Exports for providing the Wrist & Ankle Cuffs, Leather 4 Point Hogtie, Leather Blindfold and Soft Leather Posture Collar for review. The moment I saw this sexy leather fur trimmed restraint set I was extremely excited to go home and test it out. Luckily, I arrived home before my partner so I had time to quickly change the sheets, light the room with some of her favourite soy candles and run the bath. As she bathed, I finished cooking our dinner and she joined me at the table. She cast me a suspicious look as she wondered why she was being spoiled. I revealed I had one more surprise planned for her after dinner.

“What’s my surprise?” she asked eagerly as I carried the plates back into the kitchen.

“Go upstairs, take your clothes off, lie face down on the bed and you’ll find out in a few minutes” I replied. As she raced upstairs I dumped the plates in the sink and followed, I couldn’t wait any longer. I climbed the stairs and breathed in the beautiful fruity aroma wafting from the bedroom.

“Do you trust me?” I asked as I slipped the blindfold over her hair and tightened the strap. As I began to pull the restraints from the bag the metal clunked together and goosebumps spread across her naked body.

“Of course I do” she replied as I climbed over her and pressed her head down into the pillows. Having immense trust in your partner is essential in the BDSM world as submission is neither safe nor enjoyable without it.

I kissed the back of her neck, I took her hand in mine and moved it behind her back. I quickly fastened the cuff around her wrist and brought her other hand down to join it. I clipped both her wrists to the hogtie so they’re both restrained behind her back. I watched her squirm for a moment before I made my way down to her ankles. I fastened the cuffs to her ankles. I guided one foot at a time up towards the hogtie and attached them. I watched her completely helpless, she whipped her head around and listened for some clue as to what would happen next.

I whispered “Do you still trust me?”. For those with little knowledge of BDSM and submissive play, you may at this point be wondering how this is a reward but as I ruffled through our collection of sex toys I could feel her heart rate increase as a look of anxious excitement filled her face. She was totally vulnerable, immobile and blind. I was free to tease and torment her as I pleased. It seemed to please her too.

Wrist & Ankle Cuffs

With a chic and sophisticated appearance, they are quite suitable for beginners who would like to test the waters and roleplay a BDSM scene. The appearance distracts from any fears some people may have when they look at the more medieval types of BDSM devices. You can smell the high quality leather through the box. The cuffs are extremely soft, light and breathable and for the leather enthusiasts out there you’ll love the look of your partner bound by the beautiful fabric. With 6 notches on the ankle cuffs and 5 notches on the wrist cuffs they are sure to comfortably fit XS wrist/ankles all the way to plus a size

Leather 4 Point Hogtie

The hogtie will leave your partner somewhat immobile as the flexibility of the device allows for some movement. With a flick of the wrist, your restrained lover would be able to unclip the hogtie. So whilst my partner and I had a lot of fun with this device, It may not be suitable for those who really want to subject their partner to inescapable conditions. Being able to release yourself from a restraint to some extent ruins the illusion and defeats the point of being tied up. My partner however who is somewhat new to the BDSM scene liked that the restraint still had a bit of movement as it allowed her to readjust herself to get more comfortable.

Leather Blindfold

With super soft black fur the blindfold is definitely one of the comfiest I have found. The elastic adjustable strap will fit snugly on all sized faces so it can be worn by both partners without losing its elasticity. The blindfold is shaped with a groove above the nose however it is not quite deep enough and gave my partner a little discomfort as it dug into the ridge of her nose. The blindfold completely blocks out light, it is relatively comfortable and completes this cute demeaning set.

Soft Leather Posture Collar

The collar is made with a beautiful leather which has a nice firm look with a lockable strap to keep your partner restrained for as long as you please. Seeing my partner on her knees with this on was beautiful.

With sizes range from 14.25” to 18”. The posture collar is an awesome feature to help immobilise your partner. It has a perfect solid metal D-ring to attach a leash and walk your partner around wherever you wish. Use it alongside the hogtie and cuffs so that your partner will have less movement. Your partner definitely won’t be able to see what you are about to do next….

About Tom Of Finland

Touko Valio Laaksonen, a Finnish artist known for his stylized highly masculinized homoerotic fetish art, and better known by his pseudonym Tom of Finland produced over 3500 illustrations in his 71 years of life, mostly all of them featuring men wearing tight clothing, fetish gear or little to no clothing at all with exaggerated sexual features.

Touko Valio Laaksonen Photo

He has been called the “most influential creator of gay pornographic images” by cultural historian Joseph W. Slade and has had a big impact on gay culture throughout the 20th century and continues to, to this day with the Tom of Finland Foundation and his artwork still inspiring, turning on, reassuring and unifying its viewers.

“Tom of Finland is one of the five most influential artists of the twentieth century. As an artist he was superb, as an influence he was transcendent.”- Harvey S. Shipley Mille

Obviously the Tom of Finland series has a lot to live up to, luckily XR brands have created some wonderful and quality items in their Tom of Finland range including collars, leads, restraints, clamps, insertables and more.

Tom Of Finland Leash Packaging

The Tom of Finland Leash comes in wonderful packaging featuring Touko Valio Laaksonen’s artwork on the box that is metallic and reflective in places, it is so nice you may have the urge to preserve the packing itself like I considered doing but to my delight I discovered that inside as a bonus each product in the Tom of Finland range includes a collectable, exclusive art print with a portion of proceeds going to the Tom of Finland Foundation, dedicated to protecting, preserving, and promoting erotic art.

Tom Of Finland Leash Design

Now for what’s inside the box! The leash is a lovely gun metal grey colour of the chain is beautiful and different to other leashes I’ve seen out there that tend to just come in either black or silver metal, I adore this colour and it really set this leash apart looking incredibly stylish with the black neoprene hand strap that is soft yet sturdily made, there is a silver metal look plastic plate on the handle embossed with the Tom of Finland logo.

Sex Toy: Tom of Finland Leash Material

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that resists degradation more than natural or other synthetic rubbers and is easy to clean if the need arises just use a warm wet cloth to wipe down the surface of the leash and its handle with water only as neoprene is sensitive to household chemicals and urine, so if golden showers are your thing be careful to not be wearing any of the neoprene range when participating in those activities. Neoprene is also vegan-friendly making the entire Tom of Finland matching collar, leash, ankle and wrist cuff set the perfect choice for those who wish to avoid purchasing or using animal products or if you simply do not like leather or silicone it is a good alternative.

The Tom of Finland gun metal chain leash is 42 inches (106.68cm) in total length, the chain without handle being 30 inches (76.2cm) this is a good length in my opinion for a leash intended for human use, when using my leash I’ve never thought it was too long which can be a pain having excess chain in the way or too short which can cause unwanted tugging on the person who has it attached to their collar being led around.

My Final Thoughts

This leash is an excellent addition to anyone into or considering collar and leash play, stylish, high quality and with a rich history behind it, you will feel confident and in charge with its bold dark metallic grey glinting as you show off your submissive or as you’re being shown off. Using the Tom Of Finland Leash is an incredible way to introduce dominance and submission into your sexual lifestyle.

Review: Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kit

BDSM Bondage Kit
I love the Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kits. They are fantastic value for money and a great introduction to the erotic and exciting world of bondage. Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kits are made with quality construction and beginner friendly design is perfect to bring kinky play into your bedroom repertoire. The best part about buying a bondage kit is that everything also matches! The prints are made from imitation leather which is also known as polyurethane. Polyurethane is a type of imitation leather that’s vegan friendly. I really don’t like buying separate pieces to find out they don’t even go together properly.
At the same time sometimes when I hear the word kit I immediately think a company has thrown a few products together and put them in a fancy box  in order to charge exorbitant prices that just don’t make sense to anyone. Not so with these lovelies, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. You do get the fancy packaging but you also get fantastic value. The Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kit has everything to reenact your fantasies and it comes in four different Bondage Kit’s including the Silver Leopard, the Golden Leopard, the Red Leopard, the Purple Passion and the Black Kink Aphrodisia Bondage Kit. Below I have listed what is in each kit.

The Silver Leopard and the Golden Leopard Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kit includes:

  • 1 * Footcuffs
  • 1 * Handcuffs
  • 1 * Blindfold mask
  • 1 * Whip
  • 1 * G-string

The Red Leopard, the Purple Passion and Black Kink Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kit includes:

  • 1 * Feather Tickler
  • 1 * Ball Gag
  • 1 * Blindfold Mask
  • 1 * Whip
  • 1 * Collar with Leash
  • 1 * Handcuffs

The Black Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kit includes:

  • 1 * Handcuffs have a sturdy velcro closure and totally adjustable.
  • 1 * Mask
  • 1 * Collar which are soft and comfortable.
  • 1 * Feather Tickler for teasing.
  • 1 * Mini Flogger for more serious action.
  • 1 * Breathable ball gag is made from odorless plastic.

They all come in a cardboard gift box that is fun and kinky to look at. That’s one of the reasons I love it. It is a really clever way to introduce what a lot of people would consider serious kink but in a completely non intimidating way. When someone picks it up, they may be a little bit embarrassed. The box allows them to quickly pick it up without going through the hassle of what’s inside it. They can quickly grasp what is inside it by looking at the packaging and make a quick decision whether this is what they want. It take’s away the decision of having to look through a multitude of intimidating bondage equipment that can be baffling to people. They also have the ability to open up the packaging without ruining it. So people can have a look at what’s inside if they would really like to.

Put it this way, If you called up your partner and said

“Hey, I bought a leather whip and a ball Gag for you tonight…brace yourself! Oh and don’t worry. I have the cuffs for your hands and feet, so you’re not going anywhere. “

Well they might run a mile. Give them this little gift with its cutesy cartoon pin up character, it’s graphic are very much like the 60s show ‘Bewitched’. It’s a different story all together. Better still, dress up in the funky jungle g-string included and take a look at the contents together.

The cuffs have a sturdy Velcro closure and are totally adjustable. The mask and collar are soft and comfortable. The whip is mini and is more for teasing than serious flogging. The breathable ball gag is made from odorless plastic. The only thing I am not as keen on is the G-string. the material is a bit stiff for comfort, and the string is just a strip of really basic elastic. Everything inside the Aphrodisia Mistress Bondage Kit is what someone would need to get into the world of bondage. I love the fact it contains a ball gag as that is a more serious type of BDSM item that people would be intimidated to buy if it weren’t in a package. These Bondage Kits are a great introduction to BDSM. When you consider purchasing similar quality cuffs and a whip alone would set you back the price of the entire kit, you really do get bang for your buck.

Review: Jennings Mouth Wire Gag

Jennings Mouth Gag BDSM Equipment

The Jennings Mouth Wire Gag is also know as an open mouth gag is used to open someone’s mouth without the use of hands. When someone wears the Jennings Mouth Wire Gag they are unable to close their mouths. The Jennings Mouth Wire Gag was originally designed to be used as a medical surgical tool. It was used to hold a patients mouth open during oral surgery. It was used to force a mouth open that will not open naturally due to jaw dislocation. It is commonly used by dentists and has even been used as an airway management device, you could probably even find the gag at a medical school. Today the Jennings Mouth Wire Gag is used in much more sexually sinister way that is devious and fun. When using any type of mouth gag with your lover be sure to follow risk-aware consensual kink for safe BDSM play.

The first time I put my Jennings Mouth Wire Gag in my mouth, it scared the crap out of me. I felt like my mouth was going to break open and the top half of my head was going to flip off, like that add that was out years ago about a toothbrush and the flip top head. You may be thinking that I am shitting you or exaggerating what I am saying but I kid you not, that’s exactly how it felt like. To be honest, looking at the gag prior to putting it in, I never imagined that this was how it was going to make me feel. I had used other gags in the past like spider gags and ball gags. I found them fun and easy to use. This one however blew me away as I had to wear around the house when no-one was home to get used to it before I would ever consider using it in any sexual play situation. I can see you all imagining how funny that would be if anyone would have seen me using this and I have had several laughs over that myself. But when it comes to selling one of these, I thoroughly recommend all customers train themselves into using the Jennings Mouth Wire Gag prior to going into any type of play situation. I think, if I had not trained myself I would have completely freaked out the first time I used it and it would have probably been the last time I used it. Especially when you consider the way they are used. As I said above, in most cases when a mouth gag of this type is in use in a play situation the wearer is generally restrained.

How the Jennings Mouth Wire Gag works is there is a hinge with a ratcheting feature to hold it securely in place leaving you mouth wide open for your partner to place what ever they like in there. The shape is designed to fit around the mouth with the locking and unlocking ratchet on one side of the gag, whilst in the middle of both the top and bottom surgical steel guides that go around the mouth there is a curved inset that sits under your top teeth and above you bottom teeth and this is the part that is actually inside your mouth keeping it open. As this gag is made from surgical steel, you can bite down as hard as you like, but it is not going anywhere. The Jennings Mouth Wire Gag is strong, you will break your teeth before you break this gag, which is another little scary feature. I say scary because that was and still is one of my biggest fears. Whilst my Jennings Mouth Wire Gag is in my mouth and I constantly find myself trying to open up that little bit more to avoid this happening, but as they say the fear is part of the fun.

The more I wore my Jennings Mouth Wire Gag and got used to it, the more comfortable I became with having my mouth fully stretched open. Now to be completely honest it is one of my favorite toys and definitely my favorite gag. You really have to try this gag to appreciate the joy of the fear. If you enjoy medical play, BDSM play or any type of bondage, the rewards the Jennings Mouth Wire Gag will bring you and your playmate are endless. It makes for a great bondage role play idea for the bedroom.
