• Salegasm! Bondage Bargains Bound to Please

    Everything feels tighter this time of year. Jeans, purse strings, your lover's generosity.... Jees, the festive season's only just coming to an end, do we have to go on an anti-climatic love spiral just yet? Yes, I accept that we've already been overly indulgent and will continue to be so over the festive period but the end of the fun doesn't have to hone into view just yet.

    There's nothing like all of that unadulterated time spent together to give you the yearning for something new and exciting. No offence intended, you're still wanted, but how about mixing it up a bit in preparation for 2011?

    I've been having a nose through the bondage section of our Salegasm! site to pick out some of the best in cut-price BDSM gear (it's not just you customers that go mad for our sales, you know!). They say that you should start the new year as you mean to go on, so if you're game for hotter things this coming year, get experimenting...


    1. Naughty Box Furry Fun Handcuffs - £4.00


    No bedside bondage box is complete without a pair of metal handcuffs and these Naughty Box Furry Fun Handcuffs are perfect for trussed-up temptations and fettered fantasies.

    Made from metal with a singular locking mechanism and safety catch for emergencies, these easy-to-use handcuffs are a great way to try bondage without reams of complicated equipment. More comfortable than most restraints, these handcuffs come with a pair of slip-on faux fur covers that provide a soft-cushion barrier between your wrist and the cuff, preventing discomfort. You can of course discard the covers for a more realistic handcuffing experience.

    If you have a traditional metal bedstead, I recommend buying two pairs. By only locking one of your partner's wrists into each pair of handcuffs you're left with a cuff that can be secured elsewhere....a shower rail, a radiator, the bedstead...you get the idea. You'll benefit from better maneuverability if your lover's wrists are separately bound as the short length of chain between the two cuffs can be too restrictive for some scenarios and positions.

    2. Bondage Boutique Wings of Fire Leather Fetish Mask - £4.00


    It can be difficult to reconcile sadistic tendencies with deep love and affection. Fetish Masks have been traditionally used by BDSM players to disguise themselves for both personal and public play to retain anonymity. By donning a mask, we are assuming a new identity and to a degree, we become detached from our regular selves. This degree of detachment helps us delve deeper into our desires and explore our sexuality....sadistic or otherwise.

    Masks like the Bondage Boutique Wings of Fire Leather Fetish Mask(and its watery counterpart, the Wings of Ice Leather Fetish Mask) are elaborate and striking. Often favoured by dominants/tops, this style of mask uses flamboyant to convey bold energy while the shapes harden the soft line of the face to immediately make the wearer appear more menacing.

    More simple masks such as the Bondage Boutique Simple Studded Mask and the Bondage Boutique Two Tone Mask are often favoured by submissives/bottoms. Designed to simply obscure the features, they have a more simplistic style of detailing and little to no colour, conveying a firther sense of submission when compared with the brighter, more interesting masks worn by the dominant.

    It is common for just the submissive partner to wear a mask, often seen as a sign of shame. Far from agreeing with this sentiment, I believe that masks can enhance sex and sexuality for both BDSM players and vanilla lovers. By obscuring our facial features or changing our appearances, albeit temporarily, we are more likely to let go of inhibitions and lose ourselves to our yearnings. Now that can't be bad in the bedroom, can it?

    3. Magnetic Nipple Clamps- £25.00


    Beautifully designed to be easy to use and visually attractive, these Magnetic Nipple Clamps emulate a barbell nipple piercing. At first they look quite intimidating, but these clamps offer adjustability that i'm yet to see rivalled by traditional screw-and-clip clamps.

    There are five pieces to each clamp - a circular central surround, two magnetic barbell halves that magnetise together at the flat-bottomed centre, and two rubber washers that sit between the surround and the outer barbel balls.

    The nipple is clamped between the two magnetised ends of the barbell in the centre of the circular surround. To adjust the pressure exerted you simply pull the barbell halves out at each end at the balled tip and move the washer so it sits snugly against the circular surround, preventing magnets from pulling the two halves of the barbell closed.

    The strength of the magnets ensures that plenty of pressure is exerted from both directions, squeezing the nipple as lightly or firmly as you like, allowing you to increase pressure over time. They are also suitable for use on other parts of the body such as the ears, navel, labia, clitoris, scrotum and penis.

    4. Japanese Silk Love Rope Concubine Bondage Kit- £8.00


    This BDSM threesome is perfect for couples who want to experiment with sensory play without the restriction of bondage. The Japanese Silk Love Rope Concubine Kit is made using silk-feel rope, styled to mimic the elegant art of Shibari or Japanese Rope Bondage.

    A simple set that will assist couples in improving intimacy and communication during sex, the kit contains a ball gag,  blindfold and a flogger. Designed as a gentle introduction set for playfully explorative lovers, this sex-enhancing trio helps couples to experiment with physical sensation while impairing sight and speech.

    The ball gag is firm and filling and will prevent the wearer from verbally communicating, albeit the odd grunt and whine. The gentle silk-feel rope is much softer than the usual leather straps and offers a better fit for women who often find ball gags to be too loose for their delicate features. By restricting speech, ball gags encourage the wearer to find alternative ways to communicate using their bodies, facial expressions, gestures and sounds to convey their desires.

    The blindfold is in a simple elasticated sleep-mask style. Trimmed with silk-feel rope to tie it into the set, the main visible surface is made from PVC (which is great for messier play as it's wipe clean) while the reverse is covered with soft fabric that sits comfortably against the eyes.

    By restricting sight, the wearer has to rely on sound and physical sensation, sound and smell to decipher what is going to happen next and it can be incredibly confusing trying to guess. Wearing a blindfold during experimental sex is a great demonstration of trust between couples but also helps to dissolve inhibitions that can hold you and your sex life back.

    The flogger is a delicate and sensual tool, but can also pack a hit if you swing it hard enough. Draping the tails across the skin feels absolutely incredible, similar to hair being traced across the skin but with more weight and better control. The loose ends add a whole new dimension to sensory play that should be experienced, they're so much softer than regular floggers but feel very different to the light touch of feather ticklers. The tightly-braided tops to the tails are great for more painful play and can pack quite a hit, especially when swung across the buttocks. Just aim for one buttock at a time and one side of your lover's ass will receive a pretty sharp smack while the other is gently hit with a flurry of soft and tickly tendrils.

    The temptation with kits is to try too hard to incorporate all of the contents into your play at the same time. Why not try using one item at a time? You and your lover will feel less overwhelmed by the addition of new tools in the bedroom and you'll be able to stretch your experimentation that much further.

    5. Bondage Boutique Xtreme Wide Leather Posture Collar with O-Ring- £10.00


    Collaring a submissive lover is a great way to accentuate restraint play and posture collars are the ultimate neck wear for all lovers of bondage. Posture collars differ from 'dog collars' which are more slender and worn low on the neck like a choker) and 'slave collars' which are small and discreet collars or necklaces designed to be locked shut and worn 24/7 as a symbol of ownership.

    A posture collar is designed to elongate the neck and hold the head up, preventing the wearer from hanging their head or looking downward. Perfect for obtaining and retaining direct eye contact, something often shied away from during sexual contact. They are incredibly flattering for the wearer to boot, hiding neck creases and preventing double chins.

    Many posture collars have O-rings and D-rings affixed for connecting leads, chains and other bondage restraints, making them mutli-functional for bondage play. Just be sure that you tug gently as the neck is particularly vulnerable when stretched.

    The Bondage Boutique Xtreme Wide Leather Posture Collar is my favourite in our current collection. Available in black, pink and red, it's beautifully made and incredibly comfortable to wear. The adjustable size also makes it suitable for both men and women. I have a particularly slender neck and find it difficult to find collars that fit (What? Sometimes I indulge in a little submissive play too), but these fitted me a treat. It looks beautiful on your partner if they're shorter than you, with wide eyes looking upward expectedly. It has a nice chunky O-ring at the front which you can attach all manner of things to from weights to leashes or your favourite set of restraints. If your restraints don't have clips, then a couple of Bondage Boutique Quick Link Clips will soon have your lover trussed-up in any way you like, they're great for playing 'connect the dots' with most bondage paraphernalia.

    Posture collars are often more decorated than smaller collars and interestingly enough, are worn much more by women than men. Popular fetish fashion mags have been glamourising the posture collar and corset combo for years, so it's no surprise that there are plenty of posture collars out there with overtly feminine styling. The Bondage Boutique Luxury Leather Posture Collar and Leash features a large central jewel and elaborate O-ring that mimic trends in costume jewellery.  You could get away with wearing one of these with a suitably elaborate floor-length gown if you were feeling a little bit cheeky....maybe leave the lead at home though.
