    When most people think of bondage, they think of a man or woman being chained to the bed posts with a set of furry handcuffs. Although this is a fun way to get into tie-up fun, there is a lot more to enjoy and explore when it comes to bondage.

    Bondage can be used to pull parts of the body together, spread certain limbs, fix your body to another object or even create the effect of mummification.

    Whatever you want to try, bondage is a sure-fire way to broaden your sexual horizons, spice up your bedroom antics and increase your repertoire of sexual and sensual techniques.



    Technique #1: Cuff me up, officer!

    Bondage Boutique Soft HandcuffsIt might sound obvious but cuffs are a great way to get into bondage play. Whether you've got a police officer and naughty criminal fantasy or you just love the feeling of being restrained, handcuffs will give you a feeling of being powerless while still having the ability to move.

    One of the most basic bondage techniques is to cuff your partner when they're lying down on the bed. Cuffing them so that their hands are attached to the bed posts will elongate their body, allowing you to teasingly explore every inch of their skin.

    Alternatively, get your partner to sit on a chair and cuff their hands behind their back. This will allow you to do exactly as you please, without them being able to touch - great for naughty lap dances!

    Cuffs are incredibly versatile and you can experiment with different ideas. If you want to really restrict movement, then go for a pair of Spartacus Black Dual-Lock Handcuffs but if you want to give your partner a softer experience of being cuffed, go for the Bondage Boutique Soft Handcuffs.


    Technique #2: Bound by love

    Lovehoney Tease Me Bondage TapeCuffing hands together is lots of fun but why leave other limbs out of the action? Using various different restraints, you can bind ankles to ankles, wrists to ankles, necks to wrists and even fasten all your limbs together, hog-tie style!

    A great way to experiment with different types of restraint is to invest in some Lovehoney Tease Me Bondage Tape. This can be used on all body parts and once you find a type of binding you like, you can then buy the specialist equipment.

    The Sportsheets Neck and Wrist Restraint is great for those who enjoy being pinned in position but like having their legs free to wrap around their partner! This clever piece of kit even has multiple D-rings so you can choose the precise position that your prefer most.

    If you like to be completely at your lover's mercy, the Sportsheets Hog Tie and Cuff Kit will give you that great sensation! A great way to use these restraints is to attach them whilst your partner is kneeling up on a soft surface. The fear of leaning too far forward and falling is erotically exciting, especially when they realise that you're in control of their balance...


    Technique #3: Spread 'em!

    Sportsheets Under the Bed Restraint SystemBondage also involves restraining limbs away from each other as well as pulling them together, and the best way to do this is with a spreader bar. Available in lots of different sizes, spreader bars keep your limbs wide apart so you cannot flinch or prevent access to your body.

    A brilliant technique for getting the most out of your spreader bar is to try it in different positions. Standing up with a spreader bar makes walking difficult and can be used as part of a kinky discipline scenario. Using a spreader bar whilst lying down creates a sexy medical atmosphere, which works great when teamed with a doctor or nurse outfit.

    If you really get into it, why not invest in a full spreader such as the Sportsheets Under the Bed Restraint System or the Sportsheets Door Jam Cuffs?


    Technique #4: Mummy?!

    Full body bondage may sound scary but it can be very erotic, when done correctly.

    For beginner's, Tracey Cox Supersex Beginner's Bondage Tape Double Pack is the way forward. This stretchy PVC tape can be wrapped around the body, from top to toe, allowing you to be totally mummified! But be careful - things can heat up very quickly so make sure to take a break when you start feeling a little too warm.

    If you fancy being a bit more adventurous, invest in some Shibari Bondage Rope. This can be used to restrain every part of the body and can be very beautiful when tied correctly. Shibari rope creates a feeling of constriction and can be tight on the skin, so make sure to avoid cutting off blood circulation.


    Technique #5: Advancing action

    If you've already done the restraining body parts thing and you're looking for something a little kinkier, why not try bondage that also involves some sort of sensory deprivation?

    A ball gag is a kind of bondage equipment that holds the mouth open and prevents your partner from speaking.

    A scenario to try out with a partner in a ball gag is the 'silent interrogation'. Tie them to a chair and slip the ball gag in their mouth, then 'interrogate' their body by teasing it with a feather tickler or wartenberg wheel - if they make a noise, you give them a soft spank to remind them not to be so naughty!

    Alternatively, why not invest in a bondage hood or mask? This will prevent them from peeping and seeing what kinkiness you're going to indulge in next!

    Important note: No matter what type of bondage you are doing, make sure you have a safe word and that you stop whatever you are doing as soon as it is said.

      Are there any books that instruct on the basics of bondage. Like an A to Z of bondage. Or a guide to different types of bondage.

      My focus in this article will be on ungodly lust. Lust can be good or evil, it is a strong desire and that desire can be toward God or for something that is evil.
