Get a Handle on Handcuffs

A guide to using Handcuffs

National Handcuff Day is officially here, so let’s celebrate. There’s no better time to experiment, if you’d like to get a little bit kinky and enjoy playtime with your partner. Read through our step-by-step guide and discover everything you need to know.

Establish some ground rules

Want to feel completely trapped? Want your cuffs slightly looser? Well, this is exactly why setting rules should never be an afterthought or considered a mood-dampener. Remember that you’ll have little to no freedom to move. So, having a chat can build complete trust before making your decision. Topics like consent, boundaries and safe words are a good starting point. Then once you’re both on the same page, feel free to take the next step.
