A Beginner's Guide to Bondage

An Introduction to BDSM

From subtle to spicy, bondage encompasses all. Shake up your spice rack and sprinkle on as many chilli flakes as your heart desires – hot. BDSM ranges from the safe to the seriously saucy, it covers some kinky practices, but to begin with, amateur bondage can be a naughty night in without the bruises. Here are our baby steps to kinking up your sex life, think jalapeño rather than scotch bonnet.

Be Prepared

If your sex life is usually at the 'vanilla' end of the spectrum, bringing bondage into the equation can be daunting. Ultimately, bondage is down to trust - before you grab the handcuffs set some guidelines; feeling safe makes for great, freaky sex. Set a safe word and ease yourselves in.

When used properly, bondage techniques can be a brand new pleasure trigger that inspires trust, creativity and adventure in your sex life. If the sight of the paddle makes you cringe, then steer clear. Always focus on enhancing pleasure for both of you. Hot doesn't have to hurt.

Know your boundaries

Once you've decided to take the plunge, consider your personal boundaries. If you don't like pain, then don't go there - it's not a requirement. Many BDSM enthusiasts like to agree on a 'safe word' that will stop whatever you're doing, straight away. Start soft - focus on enhancing their senses with teasing floggers and satin-soft cuffs.

Have fun with it

Play A Role

Role play isn't just about naughty nurses and minxy masseuses, to fully embrace the role of dom dress up in some super erotic lingerie. Slipping into something strong and saucy adds a sexier twist to your bondage play and can help ease you into it too. If you're feeling a little self-conscious, stepping into someone else's shoes can take the pressure off. There are endless options when it comes to playwear, from BDSM classics like master and slave to doctor and patient, teacher and pupil or police officer and criminal. If you're nervous, it's a good idea to pick the dominant role, which will let you fake it 'til you make it. It's getting hot in here.

Show Some Restraint

Getting all tied up is a good place to start – start with soft, satin ties for a gentle intro. Whether you opt to be the dominant or the submissive it is completely up to you – some couples assume these roles fairly naturally, others take turns; you dictate whatever sparks your flames - fiery.

It's the dominant party's job to take control. Use the element of surprise. Blindfold your partner so they're forced to sharpen their senses; misdirect with a touch here, a touch there, then straddle them without touching at all. Mix things up and use every tool at your disposal, turn up the temperature.

Sense and Sensibility

Get inventive about ways to stimulate your partner's senses, bondage isn't all about stimulating pain receptors, anticipation is an equally important part of the BDSM dynamic and helps to exert control in a non-physical way, the safe kind of spicy, heat without the burns.

Tease them with gentle breaths to create suspense and experiment with temperature play. Rub ice cubes on their pleasure point or, alternately, freeze lube in an ice cube tray for a novel, chillingly slippery sensation.

Use floggers to lightly brush over their skin, occasionally flicking to keep them tense and excited. Bondage is for the thrill seekers, turn it up. Take it up a notch and explore spanking makes the blood rush to the surface of the skin, making the nerves tingle and your skin feel extra-sensitive. Start with your hand before graduating onto sexcessories like paddles.
