Bondage Hoods and Masks

bdsm wear

Many of the BDSM hoods and masks come with really convenient attachments and accessories. Making them highly effective in bondage play,  There are no limits to the different types of BDSM hoods and masks. From a simple cloth hood that can be made at home to elaborate leather and PVC ones that you can buy from the market. Like everything else in BDSM, individualism is the key. Innovate by yourself to make your play and lifestyle more enjoyable.

 

If you wish to purchase from your local BDSM store Australia, you will generally find BDSM hoods and masks made of three different kinds of materials.

Bondage Play

Hoods with Eye and Mouth Holes: Of all the BDSM hoods and masks, this is one of the most popular. They can completely remove a sub’s identity in a matter of seconds. Turn a human being into an object. To be cherished or to be used.

Ponytail Hood: This is usually a hood with eye and mouth holes. However it also has a hole on the top from where the hair of your sub can be pulled out to make a really beautiful ponytail.

Hoods with no Holes: This is highly popular because it completely deprives the submissive of his or her sense of sight. The sub will not know what is in store for him or her. Another added plus – this also completely gags your sub (quite a relief with some really talkative ones). So there is no chance that she will even be able to protest when you establish control over her. A simple word of caution – not all subs are quite ready for this. When choosing from the range of BDSM hoods and masks available, make sure you choose wisely. One that is right for you and your sub.

Padded Hoods: (Also known as Isolation Hoods): This too is a hood with no holes. And does exactly what a hood with no holes does. But in this case, a padded hood goes one step further. It completely deprives the submissive of sound as well. Which means that she will not be able to either speak or hear what you are doing. It is complete isolation inside her own head. Of course as any Dominant can well imagine what this can do to a sub’s other senses. The significance of even a simple touch becomes so much more.

Straitjacket Hoodie: Essentially this is a straitjacket with a hood attached. Many dominants like to leave face of the submissive open while using this. However if one wishes the hood can easily be pulled down to cover the face and act as a blindfold.

Gimp Mask: Remember Pulp Fiction? Well, who doesn’t? This mask immediately skyrocketed in popularity after this movie was released. The term too came into popular usage because of the movie. Gas Mask: Gas masks were originally used – yes you got it right – in chemical warfare. But somehow along the way they became popular in the BDSM lifestyle. However the gas masks used in BDSM are often modified to suit the needs of the lifestyle and can be used in breathplay, enclosure etc.

Female Mask: The Female Mask completely hides the identity of the wearer and can be used to give a female appearance to the submissive. In recent years great improvements have been made on their design and some of them look quite realistic.

Head Harness: Though technically not a mask or a hood, the head harness can be used as one. Head harnesses often use different kinds of gags – ball gags are popularly used. They not only help objectify the sub but can also perform many practical functions like providing attachment points and gagging.

Strap Mask: A strap mask is somewhere between a harness and a mask. There are many straps to this harness which covers most of the face making it look more like a mask.

 

So when shopping for BDSM Australia hoods and masks, choose judiciously. Remember your personality and tastes and that of your submissive as well. And choose one that is practical and also sets your heart racing.  We trust this information from BDSM Australia helps you in your bondage choices and lifestyle,

Purpose of a chastity device

The application of a chastity device is an indication of the control/dominance of the key holder over the wearer’s sexual activities. By wearing a chastity belt or cage the submissive/slave accepts the surrender of control over their sexual desires to the other partner, who may grant permission to the wearer to engage in sexual activity by unlocking the chastity device. The dominant may decide when, where, how often, and even if, the submissive is allowed their sexual release. The key holder is generally considered to be the dominant one in such a situation, and is literally, holding the keys to not only the cage but also to the sexual release.

The wearer of the belt or cage is known as the sub/slave in a BDSM relationship. This is a part of the wider practice of tease and denial. Some people claim it increases submissiveness in their men, It has often been reported that when worn, the chastity belt frequently reminds the slave of the sexual frustration they could experience. Numerous reports and studies also indicate that when men are not focusing on sexual pleasure and release, that they are more intuitive and attentive to their partners.

Most belt or cage designs cannot prevent wearers from physically touching their genitals but they do usually prevent masturbation. Although devices may hold the penis firm, they can be loose and, even though sex is impossible, it is possible for manual stimulation even to orgasm however often resulting in a ruined orgasm. The most effective masturbation prevention requires design features that incorporate piercings or a completely enclosed chastity device. I’ve chosen to look at the Sado Chamber Male Chastity Device which is made of silicone. After doing some research, I had decided that for me, silicone is a great starting choice for a chastity device because it is pliable in comparison to a steel cage, and it is easy to wear and comfortable.

The Master Series Sado Chamber Silicone Male Chastity Device set includes:

  • 1 silicone cage/tube
  • 3 graduated size silicone back rings
  • 2 plastic cinch straps
  • 5 individually numbered plastic seal locks
  • 1 padlock with 2 keys

The ring measurements are:

  • 2” diameter (52mm)
  • 1.75” diameter (47mm)
  • 1.5” diameter (41mm)

How to apply the device

Please ensure you set up your device correctly, a poorly set up chastity device could result in a serious injury.

At first look whilst the product was still in the box my thoughts were it was going to be an easy application with the device but once I took everything out of the box there were heaps of parts and I was a little confused on how to set it up. All you need is; your shaft tube  – ring – cinch strap with white clip – and padlock/numbered plastic lock.

Step 1

Apply a small amount of water based lubricant onto yourself or to the device whichever is preferred to create easy application. Due to the product being made completely with silicone I recommend a trim/shave to help lower the risk of pinching whilst using the device. Grab the ring with your preferred measurement around your genital area then take out the small white clip for the lock to seal onto.

Step 2

Grab 1 of the 2 cinch straps and push the white clip through one of the end holes. Begin to thread the cinch strap through 1 of the top slots of the chastity tube. Begin to wrap around the back ring whilst heading through the remaining 2 slots. After you have reached the full way around back to the other side attach the cinch strap to the white clip again.

Step 3

Get out the padlock or numbered plastic locks and lock it up! 😏

What I really think of the Master Series Sado Chamber Silicone Male Chastity Device by XR Brands

The Sado Chamber would have to be one of the most comfortable chastity devises I have worn. I have been able to sleep whilst wearing it with no metal spikes or pieces pinching me. It’s great for comfort whilst knowing you are still securely locked up.

With great sized ventilation holes it is perfect for cleaning without removal. This chamber is designed perfectly with a soft and silky silicone for movement and comfort. It is made in favour of the slave/sub with no pins or sharp edges for any unwanted pinching.

Get Shocked With This Fetish Fantasy!

Erotic electrostimulation with star wars

The Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Kit is a new domain for me. I’ve never at any point thought about or wanted to experience electro-sex at any time as I really thought it was something a little too kinky for me! The Fetish Fantasy Deluxe Shock Therapy Kit is made by the sex toy manufacturers Pipedream Products. True to Pipedream’s quality the sex toy arrives in a handy and hardy box, on the cover it features a woman bravely using the Shock Therapy Kit. From what I can see, she is obviously by all accounts getting a charge out of it!

The Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Kit contains a digital power control unit (which is a remote control to you and me), 4 adhesive pads, a bi-polar lead wire, a instruction manual and a free love mask. The remote just takes 2 x AAA batteries. This puts me on ease because if it takes only 2 small batteries, it can’t hurt that much right? The individual adhesive pads are connected by wires into the remote control. The wires are sufficiently long enough to place on different erogenous zones for your personal pleasure and comfortably use the remote without any problems.

The adhesive pads are to a great degree sticky! They are surely not going to tumble off whilst you are having fun with them. You must be mindful so as not to touch them with your fingertips which can be truly precarious.

They have clear plastic covers that can be placed over them to keep them sticky – so don’t throw them away or lose these! I’m not certain to what extent the adhesive pads will last. I would assume that they would probably last 10 uses, but this is a pure guess! But one of the great things about this product is that when they do need to changed, you can actually buy them separately at an affordable price. This makes them worth the money especially if you absolutely love electrostimulation.

The digital power control unit also displays clear settings. When you go through the modes you will discover that there are pre-set modes that work best for different muscles and particular areas of the body. There are over 100 different modes to choose from – so if I were to attempt to disclose all of them to you we could be here for quite a while! Every mode has a clock which turns the device off after around 10 to 15 minutes of use.

The love mask is made from a shabby material but it was free and it did what it was supposed to do. Using the love mask helped to deprive my eyesight which helped to enhance the levels of erotic electrostimulation that I felt. It is a lot of fun especially if you ask your lover to change the modes.

I first attempted the Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Kit with my lover. I allowed him to place the adhesive pads on my back, for some reason I expected the experience to feel like a dazzling back rub. My goodness! I had no idea just how wrong I’d be. When they describe their product as being shocking they are not mucking around! Although it was powered by 2 x AAA batteries, there was a hell of a ton of force! On lower settings it felt truly pleasant, however on the higher settings the erotic electrostimulation was strong.

The instruction manual provides generally clear instructions on how to begin to use the product. I think one thing the instruction manual is missing is the locations on where to place the adhesive pads. I feel that if Pipedream Products were to update their manual with this information, it would help people experience higher levels of pleasure or pain!

I’m certain I read somewhere that erotic electrostimulation increases the levels of collagen and increased levels of collagen can potentially firm up a woman’s breasts. This is worth an attempt right? I tested this out and I can’t say the sex toy did anything for my breasts aside from making them move about all over the place. Although, seeing them move was truly an exciting thing to see.

I genuinely didn’t think erotic electrostimulation would be for me however if you know where to put the adhesive pads and are able to effectively work out the settings it can make an incredible electro sex toy. It’s not only for people who like painful pleasure but it can also be incredible for releasing muscle pressures after you’ve had a work out. I do like that you can put the 4 adhesive pads where ever you like on the body so they don’t all need to be in the one spot.

The Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Kit is extraordinary for beginners as you can effortlessly control the mode yourself. You can also quickly change it to go down to the lowest setting. The LCD screen makes it straightforward to use and there is a large range of settings that you can choose from. The LCD screen allows you to see the velocity, power and mode. The Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Kit was pretty awesome even though I am not sure if I want to explore the BDSM roleplaying scene any further.

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….

My Melting Moments With Japanese Drip Candles

Candle Wax On Womens Shoulder

Many of us know that candles in the bedroom can add a sense of ambience, especially when in the throes of passion. Some people in the BDSM community add another level to this by using candles and their wax in a different way, by using specially made candles for dripping onto our skin. Wax is used as part of sensation and temperature play, it stimulates the senses with different colours, scents, heat, and touch, wherein the wax can be used in sensory focused activities to stimulate the senses.

I went on the hunt for a new set of play candles recently. I decided against the tapered paraffin table candles (way too hot) already in my extensive candle collection and finding the soy wax candles I had were pleasant and warm on the skin but not painful. Painful was what I was after, not that bad kind of pain where you burn your hand cooking but the exciting, and thrilling kind of pain you get from a proper wax play candle. I was after something professional between the two.

About Doc Johnson Japanese Drip Candles

​I found Doc Johnsons Japanese Drip Candle 3 pack, in it, you get 1 tapered candle in each of the 3 colours red, black and purple, a perfect colour combination for creating some beautiful wax artwork on a partner’s body or on yourself.

​Buying my candles and getting them home I read the back of the packet “Perfect for pleasure and pain”, “warning for experienced players only” these candles are exactly what I wanted, I couldn’t wait to try them out on a partner. Of course they sat in my room full of BDSM toys and equipment a good few months before I had a bunch of kinky friends over for drinks, suddenly I remembered them sitting in my drawer unused. Among my friends were some very keen kinksters whose hands shot up in excitement when I suggested we have a wax play session before we down too many drinks.

Side note: My rule is if I’ve had too many drinks to legally drive my car I’m too intoxicated to play. This was early in the night and we were still on our first round of drinks. This also goes for obtaining other people’s consent. I especially advise against play with fire and or wax while intoxicated.

My Experience With The Doc Johnson Japanese Drip Candles

I lit up the red candle first and started out holding the candle about 30-40cm away from her bare skin, the first drop elicited a sharp intake of breath, I held the candle upright to make sure it wouldn’t drip again and asked if she was ok, she said yes just that it was very hot, she has done wax play before and has a high pain tolerance, an indication I think as to how hot the Doc Johnson Drip Candles are. I dripped a nice amount of wax all over her back which would act as a layer of protection for the next round, I used black next and held the candle closer, the closer you hold the candle the hotter the wax is when it drips onto the skin. She said the heat was much nicer after she got used to it and relaxed a little, especially with the initial layer down.

Keep in mind that the darker the candle the slightly hotter it will be, so a black paraffin candle will be slightly hotter to drip than a white paraffin candle, so start with the white if you are new to wax play.

My other friend couldn’t handle the Doc Johnson Drip Candles directly onto her skin, she needed a layer of a soy candle I had which had a much lower burning point before I could drip on any of the Japanese Drip Candles onto her skin. So please be aware that these do burn at a reasonably high temperature as they are paraffin! After I was done with the wax I used a blunt butter knife to scrape it off their backs, which added to the whole sensation play aspect of the experience.

This was just some light fun between friends, but if you want to kick it up a notch why not add some blindfolds or bondage into the mix, after all wax and bondage go hand in hand!

The Doc Johnsons Japanese Drip candle set is made of a non-toxic paraffin wax and are just over 15cm each. These candles are not really for beginners and I advise reading up on wax play safety before going ahead with using them or any other wax or temperature play.
