Which Types of Bondage Are Right For You?
POSTED ON April 28, 2015

The many types of bondage embody various positions, sensations, and actions. Since BDSM activities have been in the public eye more than ever in recent years, it’s downright necessary to divulge some of the unique elements of this type of sexual exploration. Let’s dive in to the adult sex toys and erotic lingerie that will be your new best friends as you explore the different types of bondage.


Restraints

Types of Bondage

Restraints are some of the most common images that come to mind when people are considering the types of bondage. Whether the dominant or the submissive, this arena holds a great deal of sexual heat. The power dynamics exchanged between parties are a crucial component to the eroticism that BDSM activity holds for many people; with restraints, the power is all in the hands of the dominant.

Restraints are quite possibly the largest category of bondage toys, with many sexual paths to stroll down. Take, for instance, the ball gag, which gives one partner control over, and the ability to block access to, the other’s mouth. Collars, cuffs, and rope offer a number of restraint options. Take it to the next level with spreader bars that force arms and legs to stay spread apart at your partner’s discretion. And men get one more restraint toy of their own: cock rings, which we wrote all about in our Best Sex Toys For Men series.

Types of Bondage

Sensory Deprivation

Sensory deprivation is another powerful form of BDSM activity. Among types of bondage, sensory deprivation most often refers to the eyes, which will jazz up the sense of touch. Blindfolds are the best introduction to enjoying the lack of this sensation, with many different options such as the Fifty Shades of Grey Red Room Blindfold, the Scandal Lace Blindfold, and the Sinful Blindfold. Another fashionably sexy way to appeal to this fetish is with masks like the Eyes Closed Mask.

Types of Bondage

Physical Stimulation

In addition to restraints, physical stimulation is probably one of the most well known BDSM aspects that Fifty Shades of Grey burst into the spotlight. We’ve devoted many posts to physical stimulation, such as How to Spank and How to Use Nipple Clamps. Paddles, whips, and crops all bring their own different stimulation possibilities to the table. The small yet hard tip of a crop like the Edge Hard Limits Crop offers a different sense of physical stimulation than the lighter touch of the S&M Feather Slapper, which is different yet from the forceful sound and sting of a Leather Flogger.

Types of Bondage

Fetish Lingerie

Wear fetish lingerie to enhance any of the types of bondage. From a sassy piece like the Bad Kitty Bustier, sexy in shiny black and featuring cuffs and a collar, to the dominatrix-style Dom Diva Dress with wet look fabric and sexy plunge front detail, you can find fetish lingerie to fulfill all the desires along the BDSM spectrum.

Types of Bondage

Accentuate your fetish lingerie with the perfect Long Vinyl Lace-Up Gloves, featuring sexy side lacing, and the Sadie Patent Leather Boot With Crop (also available in pleather for all the sexy bondage-loving vegans out there), is perfect for any woman with dominatrix desires.

Bondage Furniture

Another way to explore the types of bondage is through using bondage furniture. Some of the positions you’ll find yourself in when practicing BDSM are not your average positions, and bondage furniture is designed to help accentuate your bedroom bondage activities. The Liberator Obeir Spanking Bench With Cuffs, for example, is designed to facilitate sustained kneeling for spanking and comes with cuffs for restraint play.

Types of Bondage

Whether you prefer sensory deprivation or striking physical sensations, the right types of bondage have the potential to send you soaring to orgasmic heights yet unknown.
