Exploring Couples Bondage For Beginners
POSTED ON September 29, 2014

At the Lover's Lane Intimacy Advisor, we love to share the best sexual knowledge to help you and your partner have the best sex of your lives. Today we're exploring the world of beginner's couples bondage, and we're offering some advice from guest blogger Lauren Downey, a professional writer with experience blogging specifically on adult sex toys.


Whether you feel that your sex life is getting a little stale and you would like to spice it up a bit or you are perfectly happy but fancy experimenting with something new, couples bondage is a popular place to start for many people. In this short article, we are going to take a look at how you can get started if you would like to explore the world of BDSM and some factors that you might like to consider before you do.

Couples Bondage: Just The Two of You

If you have a vivid imagination or plenty of reading material from which to draw inspiration, there is no reason why the two of you shouldn’t simply experiment in the privacy of your own bedroom and see how it feels. The important thing to remember when experimenting with couples bondage in your own home is that although it is the act of giving control to another that makes it so exciting, you may need a safe word to use at first, so that you do not feel so out of control that you are too frightened to enjoy yourself. (A safe word is simply a word chosen, usually one that has no sexual context, which can be stated by either partner if they feel uncomfortable or want to stop.) Sometimes, one partner may be naturally far more dominant than the other, and in these situations a safe word can make early sessions much easier and more relaxing for both parties.

Adult Sex Toys For Couples Bondage

In order to physically restrain each other, you’ll need some basic equipment. Get inspired with a few suggestions below, and always remember to be safe.

  • Couples BondageRope – While you could simply pop into your local hardware store and buy a length of rope, most people find that bondage rope, especially designed for the purpose, is easier to use. The main problem with regular rope is that it could chafe your skin very easily should you struggle when restrained and you may find it difficult to explain the resulting marks on your wrists if your work colleagues happen to notice them on Monday morning! Bondage rope is made of a softer material but is still strong enough to keep you tied up in knots. It’s also easy to wash, which makes it ideal for messy sessions. Try the Mini Silk Rope by Fetish Fantasy.
  • Couples BondageHandcuffs – Although traditional metal handcuffs, similar to those that are used by police forces across the globe, can be very uncomfortable if you should struggle, many people prefer them to the softer options for precisely that reason. However, whether you’re couples bondage beginners or not, you should choose the handcuffs you feel most comfortable with, and that includes both metal, such as the You. Are. Mine. Handcuffs from the Fifty Shades of Grey collection, and softer varieties such as the Velvet Cuffs in Black.
  • Couples BondageBlindfolds – Blindfolds are one of the most fun, and easiest, ways to explore couples bondage because you’re sure to already have plenty of items at home that you can use to blindfold your partner! If you need a blindfold for your bondage exploration, try the Liberator No-Peek Loveblind Blindfold!

With the above equipment and a willing partner, you're ready to get started on your journey into the world of couples bondage. Just remember that it’s supposed to be fun and try not to get too carried away! Choose the adult sex toys with the most appeal to your particular desires, stay safe, and enjoy.
