New To The World Of Bondage? A Beginners Guide

Published

on

The world-famous book 50 Shades of Grey has paved the way for a new way to look at sex.

Of course, those already in the community may not take this book to be the gospel truth of this area, but it stands to reason that, due to it, more people are becoming interested in bondage.

Bondage is a popular form of BDSM (Bondage, Discipline, Sadism, and Masochism) that involves restraining a partner using ropes, cuffs, or other forms of restraints, which you can buy at a BDSM store. For beginners, bondage can seem intimidating or taboo, but with proper education and communication, it can be a safe and enjoyable form of exploration and intimacy.

So, if you are new to this area, here is a beginner’s guide to bondage that covers the basics of safety, communication, and techniques:

Safety First

Safety is the most important aspect of any BDSM practice, including bondage. Before engaging in any type of bondage, make sure you understand the risks involved and how to mitigate them. This includes avoiding tying restraints too tight, being aware of circulation and breathing, and always having a safety plan in case of an emergency.

If you are looking for bondage equipment, be sure to look at a specialized shop, like a sex shop Weymouth for the restraints and other appropriately tested BDSM equipment before proceeding.

Communication is Key

Clear communication is essential when practicing bondage. You and your partner should discuss before you begin what you are comfortable with, establish safe words and signals, and check in with each other throughout the experience. Never assume that your partner is enjoying themselves; always check in and make sure they are comfortable and safe. In fact, this is where safety words come into play and can really help to convey needs and wants during a BDSM session.

Start Slow and Simple

Across the board, sex therapists like Tracey Cox state that BDSM needs to be approached slowly and cautiously, so you and your partner can ease into the process.

For beginners, it’s best to start with simple bondage techniques and build from there. Start with simple wrist and ankle restraints or try using a scarf or tie to restrain your partner. As you become more comfortable, you can explore more advanced techniques such as Shibari or Japanese rope bondage. You can also seek to incorporate toys into your games.

Use Proper Restraints

As mentioned before, in order to have a safe and enjoyable session, you need to use the right equipment. Using proper restraints is essential for safe and enjoyable bondage play. Avoid using materials that can cause skin irritation, such as nylon or rough fabrics. Instead, use soft and durable materials such as cotton or leather. Make sure that restraints are securely fastened and that you have a way to release them quickly if necessary.

Explore Different Positions

Bondage play will involve a lot of experimentation, and if you are not a fan of the traditional missionary when playing, aim to play around with the person being tied up, being stood up, sitting in a chair, or tied star position to a bed. Of course, these are very basic positions, but there are many more to try as you and your partner become more comfortable!
