• Bondage Tape: Deconstructed

    Bondage Tape
    Bondage tape - judging from the reviews over on Orgasm Army - is a very popular product that plenty of people pick up when they want to take baby steps into bondage.  So why would I feature it as a Deconstruction blog post?  Surely I could better use my time explaining those tricksy clit clamps or cock cages or nipple suckers?  


    Well, in short, because I love bondage tape and I hate to keep seeing this showing up in the reviews:

    I have to say I always thought that Bondage tape was sticky and I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that it actually stuck to the skin by friction alone. When I imagined bondage tape I always just thought of the mess and pain getting it off but it's nothing like that...

    Or this:

    It's a bit like police crime scene tape, not actually sticky as I had imagined.

    And:

    Not as I'd expected. I thought it would be sticky like tape but it's not.

    So first thing - no, bondage tape is not sticky.  Not even a little bit.  It is soft, stretchy, smooth plastic.  It sticks to itself only, using friction.  That means once you place it, no matter which direction you pull it, if you aren't peeling up, it's not moving anywhere.  Technically speaking, you can break it if you put enough pull on it, but I reckon if you're wanting to test your strength you're going to be purchasing something a bit more heavy duty to use in your bedroom, am I right?

    Once you've taken that on board, it really is a simple toy - though incredibly diverse.  You are only limited to what you can do with it by your own imagination.  It works as blindfolds, gags, tie-downs, clothing... the world is your oyster.  It also lasts a really long time.  If you re-roll it (if you end up with a clump of tape, you can straighten it out, but you'll need the patience of Mr. Miyagi), you can use it pretty close to indefinitely.  If it starts to lose its stick, wet it, dry it, and then rub it briskly on cloth.  That will bring back the fiction so you can use it again.

    That is the elegantly simple Bondage Tape deconstructed.  Next week - I'll tackle the slightly less elegant clit clamp...
