I’m quite pleased to finally find some upscale bondage accessories that I can recommend for people who love the feel of being tied up, but crave the subtle sensuality of silk and satin. I was especially happy to find these, because my new “Personal Restraint: Bondage for the Bedroom & Beyond” class will debut at Good Vibrations later this month and I can use these as suggested options for class attendees!
Steven at Lelo was excited to have me test these out – and I have to say, Lelo totally surprised me with them. I’m used to seeing bedroom bondage toys that are either poorly made or have cheap clasps & use chains & fittings that are easily bent or broken…not so, in Lelo’s case! I’m happy to say that I loved both the Boa Pleasure Ties and the Sutra Chainlink Cuffs!
Boa ties are definitely going to be a staple in my toy bag; their 41″ (105cm) length makes them perfect for cuffing partners and attaching their ankles or wrists to the bed (or around a chair, or holding them in your hands while you tease their bodies, or….well, you get the picture). The tapered ends are filled with pearls, which makes them perfect as over-the-door restraints. All you have to do is wrap the ends around your partner’s wrists, adjust the D-rings to fit them perfectly, and then lay the weighted ends over the top of the door; close it, and they’ll keep your partner in place while you find all sorts of amazing ways to stimulate their bodies. Bonus? The Boa ties are gorgeous, soft to the touch, and a sensual experience all by themselves.
The Sutra cuffs are delightful; soft lining with a satin overlay, and moderately-sturdy chain & links to keep them snug. I wouldn’t use these for strong bondage or with someone who is going to pull hard against their restraints; the fabric, while comfortable for mild to moderate tugging, may pinch nerves for something more intense. However, for tease & denial play, light bondage, or just a bit of kinky sex, these are PERFECT. Again, Lelo’s fabric choices make these amazingly sensual, and the chain and clasps will hold up well for many delightful romps. They come with a strip of satin between them; perfect for holding onto your partner’s cuffed wrists while leading them into the bedroom, or looping around the bed pole, or perhaps even giving them a comfortable way to have their arms held behind their waist while you feed them … well, whatever it is that you want to feed them.
They aren’t in many shops yet, so if you want them in a hurry you may want to order directly from Lelo, or ask your favorite sex positive shop to special order them for you. In the meantime, you can dream up dozens of ways to use them…and tease your partner with your fantasies!
