BDSM Toys

I guess that you’ve probably come across some BDSM sauce. Either from your favorite movies, say 50 Shades Of Grey and now 365 Days, or through curiosity.

Through such mediums, a more significant number of people have seen some of the best BDSM toys.

BDSM toys are a category of sex toys designed to enhance bondage play, humiliation, and other things. They include blindfolds, gags, restains, spanking tools, and many others, as you’ll get to see here.

Well, the world of restrains and bondages has over recent years grown very popular. It is more accurate when we narrow it down to couples—especially those who have an insatiable taste for anything that offers novelty to their sex life.

Learning more about bondage and BDSM could give you valuable information on the subjects.

For instance, you will know that there is more to this than the usual leather and harness play you see. It also includes getting to know the types of BDSM toys and how one can use them.

Another important yet overlooked aspect is where to get them when the time comes and what to get.

Also worth noting is that there are three levels of BDSM that you and your partner can practice:

  • Vanilla: This consists more of the lighter activities. It may include casual spanking, light bondage, sensual play, and many others.
  • Heavy Play: This level involves weightier and more aggressive actions. It may include flogging, heavier restraints, and such other things.
  • Extreme BDSM: This is the crowning level in BDSM and gets used by more advanced players. The activities that take place here may come out as dangerous if you are just getting into BDSM. These include skin burns from candle wax, humiliation, knife play, and much more.

The fantastic thing is that you can incorporate sex furniture and sex machines into the sessions.

So, what more can we learn about the best BDSM toys and how they impact our game?

Let’s check all that out below.

Get To Know The Types of BDSM Toys

Now, getting knowledge of the best BDSM toys could prove challenging to some extent. So first and foremost, you should make a point of visiting the local fetish conventions more often.

These spaces could give you very reliable information as to the types and work of each BDSM toy. But fret not, because today I’ll do you the honors of highlighting the most popular types of BDSM toys.

Bondage & Restraints

Bondage toys are some of the most used BDSM accessories. They’re particular favorites among couples or people with a partner. Their primary function is to tie a submissive to make them immobile while you tease them.

Bondage Rope

Bondage ropes are the most basic form of restrains, and they do an excellent job of tying back subs. And because of this, you can use bondage ropes in various styles of BDSM or vanilla light bondage.

Some of the styles you can use with ropes include hogtying, breast, suspension, Western bondage ball tie, etc.

History records that Shibari bondage from Japan serves as one of the earliest bondage ever performed. It’s a mild type of bondage that takes great care not to cause any form of physical harm to the sub.

Spreader Bars and Yokes

Well, their name pretty spells out everything that these devices do. The primary function of yokes and spreader bars is to open up the sub(s) one way or the other. It means spreading apart their limbs and keeping them extended throughout the session.

Among the most popular of this kind are arm spreaders. They work by extending the sub’s arms above their heads, leaving the sub’s torso and genitals exposed and at the mercy of the dom.

Leg spreaders are also a popular option with restraints. They work by spreading apart the sub’s leg while keeping them wide open. Combined with an arm spreader, one can achieve one of the most effective restrain actions.

Collars

Collars are pretty famous. And I know you’ve probably seen some people bravely wear them in public. Collars play a significant role in establishing dom/sub relationships.

It is because whoever wears the collar gets recognized as the sub. So the subs have to do the dominant’s meaning. Even if that means getting pulled and dragged by the same collar.

It is excellent for pup play and dominant/submissive power exchange.

Also, collars come in different shapes, sizes, and colors. And the crazy part is that some come attached with a gag that you can use to silence your sub.

Anal Hooks

Anal hooks are a great way to keep your sub in line. Their body shape looks like a regular hook with the curvy arcs and all.

What makes them different from the regular hook that you know is the ball soldered on one end. The ball part gets inserted into a sub’s butt and holds in place with the help of the anal muscles.

You can then attach bondage ropes or other types of restraints onto the looped end of the hook. After this setup is complete, a dominant can use the combination to hoist or tether a sub for teasing.

Anal hooks are pretty rad when you get to master your way around them.

Arm Binders

Arm binders take the level of BDSM restraints to an all-new high. They can keep a sub’s arms tied very tight and leave no room for movement.

You can use arm binders if you want something a bit more extreme than regular rope.

They provide perfect hold and will keep trespassing hands at bay. As a result, your sub can get one of the most intense body teases and suffer great humiliation.

Gags

Gags play a significant role in getting both the dominant and submissive partner into the mood. They are mostly used to silence or muffle any sound/begging that a sub may try to air.

Some have dildos attached to them for sucking or penetrating, depending on how they come installed.

And in case you’re wondering, there’s no one-size-fits-all gag model. These bad boys come in varying sizes to suit different users. They also have various shapes and come in several available materials.

That’s great as now there are lots of options for newbies and the more advanced players.

Among the most common gags are ball, butterfly, bit, cleave, funnel, muzzle, spider, tube, and pecker gag.

Tape

Bondage tapes are a fitting restrain for newbies and people who lack the patience to work with ropes. They’re safer, cheaper, reusable, give the same level of restraining, and easy to use.

The other thing is that they’re easy to come out of as you can either cut or unwind out of it.

And even more impressive is the fact that they’re self-adhesive, which means that you don’t have to worry about the tape getting stuck on your skin or hair.

Also, they’re made waterproof. So you can wet up the scene however much you want, and the tape will still hold.

Blindfolds and Hoods

Blindfolds and hoods are a great way to add kink to your BDSM play. They work by causing voluntary sensory deprivation of one or few senses.

In most scenarios, they block out sight and, with some models, hearing too.

To get the most out of them, you’d best use them with a set of limb binders.

Also, as blindfolds deny one the senses of sight, this, in turn, enhances smell, sound, and taste. And in the case of hoods. They can aim for various senses depending on the hood version you get.

Cuffs and Straps

Cuffs and straps are the most common bondage and restraint toys. I bet either you or at least someone you know owns a pair of these.

Cuffs and straps are handy in tying a sub on a bed’s corner-posts. It makes them vulnerable and leaves them at the mercy of the dominant.

They’re used as getaway bondage tools by both newbies and experts. And also, they offer the most straightforward means through which anyone could tie a partner up.

Body Harnesses

Body harnesses are an essential requirement for most wearable bondages. They consist of straps and rings or attachment points that you can use to adjust a fit.

Some of the body harnesses make a great addition if you want to suspend a full body or just limbs. They also give some fantastic arm and leg restraint while restricting movement all the same.

The unique thing about them is that you can use them alone or with other forms of restrains.

Impact Play Toys

Now, toys that fall under this category provide a great hitting or flogging service. These are toys used in BDSM scenes to inflict pain or other such live sensations to a sub.

Many individuals find this kind of play arousing as it borders the line of pain and pleasure. The sight of a bruise or a red flush on a partner’s body does turn on some people.

So, what are some of the impact toys available in the market? Let’s find out.

Floggers

Floggers charm a lot of people’s hearts because of their versatility. For instance, you can use a multiple-strand leather flogger for whipping and also as a sensual tease.

They come in various materials that include leather, steel, and rubber.

Paddles

They serve almost the same function as floggers but have a different form. Unlike a flogger’s strands, paddles have a flat and broad body that evenly distributes impact.

They’re suitable for spanking a sub on the ass or thighs. It can make them flushing red in pain and pleasure and arouses the dom in the process.

Worth mentioning here is that leather paddles are harsher than the wooden models.

Canes

A dom may use canes to induce fear, just like back in the medieval periods. They have a smaller impact surface area and therefore lands on a sub with a sharp bite.

You should ensure you have enough room when using canes. This is because they can cause damage to other household materials when swinging.

Riding Crops

Riding crops are more like an evolved version of the canes. They’re fun tools with small impact zones when struck.

It also gives them a stinging sensation when swung on a sub.

Again, one should take great care, using them to avoid household damage or unnecessary injury.

Whips

Whips also play the part of instilling fear while inflicting pain. A dom can achieve this by either striking it on a sub or cracking it on the ground.

Also, they come in various styles, lengths, and materials. Some of the most common ones include bullwhips, cat o’nine tails, and dragon tail whips.

Now, FYI, whips are categorized as one of the most extreme BDSM toys. And for this reason, only advanced players are recommended to use them.

Chastity Devices

Chastity Devices get used to enforce an anti-orgasming agreement. They prevent either a male or female partner from stimulating their genitals in any way.

They also prohibit intercourse during the duration that one wears it, causing a lot of tension to the sub, which ends up in lots of begging that only adds to the fun.

Today, we have both male and female chastity devices. Male chastity devices like a cock cage has holes in them to relieve themselves (pee/cum). Therefore, one can wear them for a pretty long time.

But the female models, like chastity belts, lack such openings. So one can only wear them for a short period.

Sex Furniture

Sex furniture is the icing on the cake in a bondage and restraint scene if you can afford one. Most models get built to complement most of the BDSM toys that I have highlighted here.

Making the statement right is the fact that many of them come fitted with hooks and harness joints. These additions facilitate an easy attachment for cuffs, ropes, harnesses, and other sets.

Also, BDSM furniture comes in different forms and sizes. For instance, there are sex swings, pillows and wedges, and other bed restraints to sample.

Sex Machine

Sex machines are great devices built to simulate real-life intercourse. And they perform even better when used in the company of other BDSM toys and accessories.

For this case, they simulate penetration as seen with a Sybian fuck machine. And this could mean both vaginal and anal sex. Picture getting sex from such a device with your body restrained and tied up. Mind-blowing, right?

Acquiring a sex machine is an expensive venture that may need financial planning. On the other hand, you can as well opt to DIY a sex machine of your own.

So as we part – have you figured out where you want to begin your BDSM journey?
