These Bondage Toys Will Take Your Sex Life To The Next Level

Whether ropes have always been a turn on for you, or the latest installment of Fifty Shades of Grey piqued your interest in bondage, there's a whole wide world of BDSM toys out there if you're looking to explore your kinky side.
Bondage, the sex act of restraining one's partner and all the pleasurable activities that come with it, is part of the basic foundation of kink and BDSM (which stands for Bondage, Domination, Sadism, and Masochism). While bondage was once done under wraps and in S&M fetish clubs, thanks to the (admittedly flawed) Fifty Shades franchise and increased sex positivity, these days you can pick up BDSM gear at high-end, women-owned sex shops, and you can even wear bondage gear to work. Plus, there are lots of great online sex shops if you're too shy to purchase anything IRL. And if the whole black leather and latex aesthetic isn't for you, that doesn't mean you have to skip out on BDSM altogether — just like anything concerning sex, you can do it your way.

Don't forget: Bondage applies to the mouth, too. After tying up the submissive partner with rope, tape, or leather binds, place this comfortable (for a bondage toy!) ball gag in their mouth as they enjoy whatever consensual painful pleasure the dominant partner delivers.

Not only is bondage tape less expensive than most leather and rope bondage restraints, but with an entire roll of tape, you can afford to be creative. Use this bondage tape in lieu of handcuffs to restrain your partner up against a bed frame, or if you really want to go all out, hogtie their limbs together.

Anyone who saw Fifty Shades Darker likely remembers the nipple clamp scene, in which Christian tests out this pair on Anastasia's finger. If you’re new to nipple clamps, which can provide intense pinching sensations, absolutely start out with an adjustable pair until you learn your pain threshold.

In the world of BDSM and bondage, the submissive often wears a collar as a symbol of their role. For those of you looking to take things a step further, use it to clasp on a matching leash so the dominant partner can lead the sub around as they crawl on their knees. Considering how trendy chokers are at the moment, if you’re feeling bold, you can even wear this one outside the bedroom.

After the submissive partner is tied up, have the dominant parter slip their hand through the loop of this riding crop (they're not just for horses) and dole out some proper spankings.
