BDSM is often mistakenly assumed to be an unhealthy, abnormal sexual fantasy to have. It isn’t much else you can expect from a society that cannot get past its stigma surrounding sex; after all, it’s an acronym that stands for bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, sadism, and masochism. These words can sound a bit daunting to beginners, but not to fear; they come with terms and conditions, i.e., consent, safe words, and prior communication.
The perks of BDSM (apart from the sexual gratification, of course)
Contrary to popular belief, BDSM is an act of liberation at its core. It provides a space for one to let go of the control that they constantly seek in life. Surrendering their will to someone else in a controlled environment allows them to be judged.
It is also known to reduce anxiety and increase dopamine levels because of the sheer thrill it induces.
Engaging in dominating roles in BDSM is also said to reduce cortisol levels, a hormone that induces stress. What I’m trying to say is that BDSM is a stress buster.
A Toy Story?
Many people who may be interested in indulging in a little rough play are not sure where to begin or have too many questions. This is where sex toys found on twicetonight.com come in, backing you and your partner’s needs and showing you how BDSM is so much more than just a genre of porn. Performing these acts or enacting these fantasies without proper research or communication can lead to situations where you or your partner could get hurt.
Bed restraints 101
For people newly venturing into BDSM, bed restraints are the perfect aid. Most people don’t have the money or space for a complicated or expensive bondage setup, and that’s okay!
Bed restraints which you can look at here, are a budget-friendly way to get wild in bed without burning a hole in your pocket!
Handcuffs, as the word suggests, cuff you down or cuff two of your limbs together, which reduces mobility for the submissive partner. Restraints, however, are adjustable at the wrists and straps, letting you and your partner explore all you want.
- Functional and low maintenance
This toy has an effortless mechanism. It’s an excellent choice for beginners because the setup is simple. You just have to slip the straps underneath the mattress, and you are done! There are no hooks or attachments, or hassles involved.
Under Bed, restraints are excellent to take on holiday as they can be packed compactly to carry in luggage or hidden in any space.
Types of bed restraints
- X Type
The X-type kit has four straps (with cuffs on their ends) that stretch out at the four corners of the bed and a middle joint that goes right under the mattress in the middle of the bed.
The individual straps are adjustable, so you can loosen or tighten the restraints between a partner’s legs and hands based on preference. This type gives you more allowance to explore sexual positions and is great for all body types.
- The Double strap type
This kit has two sets of straps, one on the top, which has the wrist cuffs joint, and a lower strap with the ankle cuffs. The double strap restraint is more convenient to put on as you just need to slide the straps onto the top and bottom of the mattress instead of the X type, where the middle joint goes under the middle of the mattress.
Bondage Restraints for the Bed
- Sports Sheet Under the Bed Restraint System
This bondage restraint is simple to assemble. It has a central piece that has to be placed vertically under the mattress, and the cuffs must be pulled up from the four corners. It’s convenient to use and hide, and you can leave the setup as it is to spice up a sexual adventure as it escalates.
- Wraparound Mattress Restraints
The wraparound mattress restraint has cuffs that are satin lined on the inner side to provide that extra comfort even as you are tied up. The cuffs are to be pulled onto the bed from the corners of the mattress and can be discreetly tucked away whenever necessary.
- Scandal Bed Restraint
The fifty shades cross restraint is a system that is excellent for beginners as it has adjustable Velcro straps which allow your partner to increase/decrease the pressure applied on the wrists, which is something most beginners may have difficulty with adjusting to.
Bond hard, but play safe
Consent, comfort, and communication are undoubtedly the true essence of any sexual act. Bed restraints are not only ideal for newbies looking to try out power play as there’s a lesser risk of complications or injuries but also for advanced kinksters.
However, it’s essential for the submissive partner to be vocal about any discomfort or pain they might feel and for the dominant partner to be accommodating of their concerns and be mindful of the tightness of the restraints.
Now grab your restraints and have fun!
