Bondage Safety Techniques for Safe Bondage Play
16
Sep 2020

There are dangers all around us, all the time. We knowingly take them pretty much every time we leave the house. Getting in a car is a risk, riding a bike is a risk, even meeting new people can involve some risk. Some of us take this to different heights by including risk into our fun. Bungee jumping, skydiving, surfing and more are super fun but also potentially hazardous activities.

 

So then why is it people stare at you with a shock when you mention you’re into some risky behaviour in the bedroom? The point is, being into bondage is no riskier than any other activities and can positively intensify your sex to unimaginable new limits. But shhh, don’t tell, we don’t want to take away the mystique! Really, even though bondage can be quite safe, you have to play correctly for it to be. It is likely for some bondage methods to hurt in a serious way, so it is important to play correctly and within reason.

 

There are many different ways you can assure you and your companion stay safe when you’re involved in hot bondage action.

 

Safeword

A safeword is a verbal acknowledgement that means you or your partner need to stop what is happening in a bondage scene. It can be almost any word you choose. Once you or your companion say your personal safeword, action needs to stop. Some people prefer a “red, yellow, green” system of safewords, mimicking traffic lights. Because some people do like playing with power dynamics, it is recommended you don’t use the words “stop” or “no” - some actually like those in their sexy talk to mean the opposite. Picking a non-sexual word is a clear indicator that the action should cease.

 

Communication

As with all things sexual, communication is key. Some might say it takes away from the spontaneity of sex, but it is recommended to talk about your bondage scene fully before you start so that both partner’s know what to foresee and what will occur. Bondage is one of those activities you don’t really want to spring on someone surprisingly as unanticipated acts might be unexpected and hurt in a bad way. Of course, talking and sharing before can be super hot and get the two of you even more worked up and ready for fun.

 

Use proper equipment

While some of us really appreciate and love DIY solutions, bondage scenes aren’t really the place for dangerous tools. There are many great products out there to ensure you get a hot binding while not endangering yourself or your companion.

You can find cuffs and rope that will assure proper circulation and no harm is done. If you do need to think on the spot, items such as soft scarves are much more appropriate.

 

Know your limits

One thing about bondage is that it is easy to get carried away - as either the top or the bottom. Tops might indulge a little too much in spanking, for instance, and slap a little too hard for the bottom’s liking. On the other hand, it is also quite easy for a bottom to want to push for more and more punishment - but then regret it the next day while trying to sit casually at work. Of course, pushing our limits is what can make this sort of scene so damn wondrous, but it is important to be fair. This is another reason why communication is key: you can know each other’s boundaries and check-in when you think the other person is approaching theirs. Keep each other grounded!

 

Take your time

Sure, you can include a little slap and tickle into a quickie, but more than likely you’re going to want to take your time when enjoying a hot bondage scene. Trying to rush through things will mean you might not be warmed up and prepared and the action might take off too quickly. Rather, guarantee you have lots of time to play, ensuring both physical and mental ease and relaxation.

 

Don't engage in bondage alone

We’ll close out with this very significant note: as much as you might like being tied up and getting off, don’t do it alone. You could accidentally restrict your circulation and cause yourself physical harm. There’s risk and then there’s stupidity.

There are many different ways to get your thrills and excitement from bondage. Enjoy finding what is best for you safely!
